    He was found not guilty. Impeachment was the trial. The vote of the Senate was the verdict.

    You do know what impeach means and how it works, right?
    Obviously not. Impeachment is the accusation and the process, not the verdict. The verdict was not guilty.

    Impeachment

    Yes, he was impeached by the House.

    The Senate voted not to impeach.

    Would that be correct?

    So Clinton was found not guilty, versus ethics charges against Newt for which he was found guilty and required to pay a $300,000 penalty.

    This helps in your defense of Newt's honor how exactly???

    So, what's your point?

    As noted by others, to be Impeached is similar to being indicted. Clinton will always be as the second President to ever be Impeached. But as noted, he was found "not guilty" in the trial, conducted by the Senate.

    No.

    The House can impeach, which means accuse of a crime.

    The Senate then tries him, and either votes guilty, or acquits.

    Clinton was impeached by the House and then acquitted by the Senate.

    No, impeachment was the House voting for him to have a trial. The Senate then conducted the trial (with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court as judge and members of the House as prosecutors) and found him no guilty. He remained President and nothing changed. Had he been convicted by the Senate, he would have been removed from office.
