Clinton impeachment


During his second term, President William Jefferson Clinton was accused of having perjured himself when he denied having a sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky, an intern with the federal government, and of having attempted to suborn the testimony of a witness. The House of Representatives voted to impeach Clinton, despite charges that the impeachment proceedings were politically motivated. In 1999, Clinton was tried and acquitted by the Senate.
