Articles of Impeachment: Third Time is NOT the Charm

In fact, only three American presidents have been impeached – Andrew Johnson, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton — and only two have been brought to trial in the Senate — Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. Johnson for his handling of post-Civil War matters, Nixon for Watergate and Clinton for his affair with Monica Lewinsky. While all three Presidents were impeached by the House of Representatives, Johnson and Clinton were acquitted by the Senate and finished out their respective terms.
