The impeachment vote failed to convict on both counts.
The perjury charge failed with 45 senators (all Republican) voting “guilty” and 55 senators (45 Democrats and 10 Republicans) voting “not guilty”.
The obstruction of justice charge failed with 50 senators (all Republican) voting “guilty” and 50 senators (45 Democrats and 5 Republicans) voting “not guilty”. In both cases, a two-thirds majority of 67 senators would have been required for conviction.
The five Republican senators who voted against conviction on both charges were John Chafee of Rhode Island, Susan Collins of Maine, Jim Jeffords of Vermont, Olympia Snowe of Maine, and Arlen Specter of Pennsylvania. The additional five Republican senators who voted “not guilty” only on the perjury charge were Slade Gorton of Washington, Richard Shelby of Alabama, Ted Stevens of Alaska, Fred Thompson of Tennessee, and John Warner of Virginia.
“One down and one to go.”
I’ll drink to that!
That is the Monica Lewinsky ‘lips firmy clenched shut’ look. The closed mouth that resulted in the blue dress mess. Poor Billy...
“This, I have done. [Hale smiles here]”
Specter’s the very definition of “turd”.
Yeah, King had me fooled into thinking he was a “good guy”.
“Too bad doing the right thing only backfired on Republicans because the economy was good and the media was on Willies side 1000%.”
And I fear that will be enough to get PIAPS elected.
“...he very definition of turd....”
and worm food now... (just sayin’)
“and worm food now... (just sayin)”
Yes, you’re right.
I bet he gave the worms diarrhea.
Liberal Alec Baldwin of NBC News responded to Clinton’s Impeachment by wishing that Henry Hyde’s family be stoned and his children be killed
I think they took a bite, said “Ehh.. tastes like RINO ass...”
and went elsewhere.
If memory serves me rightly, didn’t he bomb Serbia either the same or the next day in order to get it off the front pages?
Harsh, but hopefully true.
Our work as FReepers is not done. Obama threatens America worse than Clinton ever did. Obama has to impeached and removed....very soon.
