There are none so blind as those that will not see.

Each Supreme Court has its own opportunity to decide how and when they agree to hear cases, what criteria they choose, to appear before them. The observation by those interested is they are not accepting cases where the House and Senate do not agree ... it is necessary. If the current Roberts Court says they aren't agreeing to hear impeachment against a sitting President until the House and Senate agree to the impeachment, they can do so. It does not have to be written down. It is their actions that shows what they accept. Boehner is not wanting to butt heads against the President (likely). No point when he knows it will go nowhere. MO. when The House (Republican majority, and Senate (Democrat) majority do not agree on it.

President Clinton was not found guilty. so it accomplished little. Both Hillary and Bill did impeachable actions. MO Power goes to the head of those in powerful positions. Not always, but to some extent, it is heady stuff. There are some that relish in using it. Our current President has done many hurtful actions to the American people. Jobs, and mammoth debts that may well bring America down. Immigration pending. Immigration is to be accomplished on going with quotas, and not suddenly with millions of peoples. MO

No point in arguing, I know what I know and you feel the same, I'm sure.

” - - - - Impeachment of Bill Clinton
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Floor proceedings of the U.S. Senate during the impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton in 1999, Chief Justice William Rehnquist presiding. House managers are seated beside the quarter-circular tables on the left and the president’s personal counsel on the right.
Bill Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States, was impeached by the House of Representatives on two charges, one of perjury and one of obstruction of justice, on December 19, 1998. Two other impeachment articles, a second perjury charge and a charge of abuse of power, failed in the House. He was acquitted by the Senate on February 12, 1999.[1]
Independent Counsel Ken Starr alleged that Clinton had broken the law during his handling of the Lewinsky scandal and the Paula Jones lawsuit. Four charges were considered by the full House of Representatives; only two passed, and those on a nearly party-line vote. It was only the second time in history that the House had impeached the President of the United States, and only the third that the full House had considered such proceedings.
The trial in the United States Senate began soon after the seating of the 106th Congress, in which the Republicans began with 55 Senators. A two-thirds majority (67 Senators) was required to remove Clinton from office. Fifty Senators voted to remove Clinton on the obstruction of justice charge and 45 voted to remove him on the perjury charge; no Democrat voted guilty on either charge. - - - “

To Repeat:
* Zipper-Boy Clinton was Impeached by the House.
* The Senate refused to remove Zipper-Boy from office.
* The NINE SUPREMES had nothing to do with either decision.

Impeach Obama in 2014. Period.
