    And as usual, the word impeached is used incorrectly, on this shirt.

    Impeached means "charged with a crime". It does not mean "removed from office". Bill Clinton was impeached, but not removed from office.

    I am always explaining that point.
    Don't forget Andrew Johnson, either.

    This is not mine, It was written by Cliff Gross:
    "Impeachment is the first step to removing a president from office. Basically, it is a vote in the House that sufficient evidence exists to go to trial. Impeachment’s are heard in the House of Representatives. Trials are heard in the Senate.

    Clinton was considered on 4 charges brought by Independent Council Ken Starr. The House considered all, 2 failed, 2 passed.

    After impeachment, you go to trial in the Senate. If found guilty, you CAN be removed from office and/or be sentenced for your crimes.

    As for the trial, at the time, there were 55 republicans in the Senate and a 2/3 majority (67) of senators was needed to convict.

    On the charge of Obstruction of Justice, 50 guilty votes.

    On the charge of Perjury, 45 guilty votes.

    No Democrats voted guilty.

    So, Clinton was acquitted of all charges."

    Needs a line in there about Kavanaugh administering the oath of office each time.
