    Bill Clinton was indeed impeached which is the action of the House of Representatives.
    He was then acquitted by the Senate.

    The two charges he faced were perjury and obstruction of justice. 67 votes were needed for conviction. On the perjury charge, only 45 votes for conviction were cast and all by Republicans. On the obstruction charge, 50 votes were cast for conviction, again all by Republicans.

    Nothing more nor less.

    Now...since he absolutely committed perjury and his actions OBVIOUSLY were intended to obstruct justice in the Paula Jones case why do you suppose no democrats voted to support the charges? Keeping in mind of course that we arent talking the crime of getting a hummer from a willing participant (not a crime) but of wanking off and exposing himself to a campaign staffer and asking her (against her will) to blow him...

    How did his lies about a completely unrelated consentual affair obstruct justice in the Paula Jones case?

    Talk to an attorney about establishing patterns, periods of prior bad acts. Im sure they can explain it to you. The Jones attorneys were pointing out that the accusation would not be out of the realm of possibility considering the totality of his behaviors. He lied under oath in giving his response.

    The testimony would only establish a pattern of engaging in consensual affairs, no?

    Why are we discussing this at all?

    Again...ask an attorney. The judge in the case allowed the question so whether you or I think it relevant is irrelevant. The question was asked of a defendent under oath. He lied. I dont pretend to be a lawyer, but Im pretty sure the law states you cant lie if you dont like the question.

    Of course...I can understand the hesitance in answering the question...he WAS after all on trial for wanking in front of a campaign staffer and sexually harrassing her.

    You were the one that said he was OBVIOUSLY obstructing justice. You should support that claim, not an attorney.

    He lied while under oath on trial for exposing himself to a campaign staffer while he was jerking off (he...there's a great guy worth defending BTW)(luckily for him, the accusation of rape and sexual assault didnt surface until after the Jones trial was settled). Im GUESSING...now...just GUESSING that he was trying to avoid being exposed as the kind of pervert that would have a White House staffer using a cigar as a dildo then smoking said cigar. I'm GUESSING he thought that would be a little incriminating. He was accused of perjury (check) and obstructing justice.

    So you were LYING before when you said it was OBVIOUS that he lied in order to obstruct justice.

    The other factor to consider is that whether or not he ****ed Lewinsky while wearing a tutu and blowing a llama would have no bearing on the accuracy of Paula Jones' accusations.

    Her case was not hindered by his lies (because the veracity of her claims would be the same with or without Cigar-gate), thus justice was not obstructed.
