Andrew Johnson was impeached in 1868 for violating the Tenure of

Office Act.

Bill Clinton was impeached in 1998 for perjury and obstruction

of justice.

Note that Impeachment does not mean removal from office, it

means that he is being investigated on suspicion of wrongdoing that

may result in him being removed from office. In both of the above

cases the President remained in office.

Richard Nixon was not impeached, he resigned before the

impeachment proceedings being considered agaisnt him could

begin.
