1998 House Of Representatives Passes Two Acts Of Impeachment Against President Bill Clinton

Clinton was charged with lying under oath to a federal grand jury and obstructing justice, on this day by the House of Representatives.

Events leading up to this date had been a media sensation, and a very public sex scandal involving a 21 year-old intern, Monica Lewinsky's relationship with the president.

At the subsequent trial of President Clinton in the Senate, they voted to acquit Bill Clinton of impeachment. Impeachment rulings must be carried by a vote of at least two thirds of the Senate, that majority was not achieved.
