The Senate trial commenced on January 7, 1999 and the Senate voted on the Articles of Impeachment on February 12, with a two-thirds majority, or 67 Senators, required to convict. On Article I (perjury) the President was found not guilty 55-45. On Article II, obstruction of justice, the vote was 50-50, with all Democrats and five Republicans voting to acquit. So it wasn't even close. But yes, it did happen.

Government Documents in the News/Impeachment of William Jefferson Clinton
The Impeachment Trial of President William Jefferson Clinton

etc etc etc

I'm sorry, I meant to write "...a REAL trial."

Second time I have done that (said that there was no trial. Must have been a Napolitano moment.) Mea Culpa

It was a foregone conclusion before it even started.

See Analysis: Impeachment votes could be a factor in some Senate races next year - February 12, 1998

Now since the Republican Senate (namely Trent Lott) did not want to deal with a "President Al Gore" coming into an election, they chose NOT to adhere to the Constitution and hold a trial after the Impeachment of President Clinton. For which I think all the Republican Senators should have been round up and publicly censured, as they had no choice and most Americans were clueless about the Constitutional provisions for Presidential Impeachment, and the Mainstream Media were all too happy to be complicit in the whole charade about how the Senate thinks that there was not enough evidence to hold a trial.

Read the constitution people. There is no choice once the President has been impeached!
The impeachment of Clinton was not the act of conservatives, it was the act of radicals.
