Best Answer

Andrew Johnson was impeached in 1868 after violating the Tenure of Office Act, and aquitted of all charges.

Bill Clinton was also impeached on December 19, 1998 on grounds of perjury to a grand jury and obstruction of justice. He was aquitted of the obstruction charge.

Richard Nixon was not impeached, but impeachment was threatened, causing him to resign. Nixon was later pardoned by his successor, Harrison Ford.

Note that impeachment simply means "accusation". It is not a verdict of guilt. A president need not be convicted of any charges in order to be impeached for them. Whether or not an offense is an impeachable offense is decided exclusively by Congress.

Actually, Nixon's successor was Gerald Ford, not Harrison Ford (although Harrison Ford was really hot in Star Wars and the Indiana Jones movies).

The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments. When sitting for that

Purpose, they shall be on Oath or Affirmation. When the President of the United States is

tried, the Chief Justice shall preside: And no Person shall be convicted without the

Concurrence of two thirds of the Members present.

Yes, Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were impeached by the House, but neither was convicted by the Senate, so they both stayed in office until their terms expired.
