No President has ever been impeached. That would remove them from office. Two have been by the House and acquitted by the Senate. To be successfully impeached it must be by both houses of Congress. And most people Like Trump think it was just political nonsense anyway.
“I think Bill Clinton is terrific,” “I think he’s done an amazing job. I think he’s probably got the toughest skin I’ve ever seen, and I think he’s a terrific guy. I just have to view the economy and the country. I think Bill Clinton has done a terrific job. I don’t think he’s been treated very fairly, but I think he’s done a terrific job.” - Donald Trump
The problem of this thread is simply that the phrase "being impeached" has got two different meanings. It means the trial process, and it means the conviction.
The OP has obviously been told that Clinton "was impeached" in the first sense, and is not clear about the difference between the two senses.

Fair comment, but all those in this thread who deny that Clinton was "impeached" are obviously understanding the phrase as "successfully impeached", the second sense I suggested. The OP evidently understands it the same way. Hence the verbal confusion.

It occurred to me that as a convicted/impeached former President of the United States, Bill Clinton might not be able to reside in the White House. Maybe U.S. law doesn't even allow him to be "First Gentleman"?
I was reading over this www.2016election.com... article today, which brings up the question, "Can a convicted Felon LIVE at the White House?" Until President Obama relaxed the rules in 2015, convicted Felons couldn't even VISIT the White House.
Bill Clinton says he will move into the White House with Hillary, "if she asks me to".
My question is, IS IT LEGAL FOR HIM TO LIVE at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue, considering his criminal record?
Yes, he was an above said he was ACQUITTED! Deep!
Do any of the people who support The Donald have common sense?

he was later acquitted of the charges, he's definitely not a "felon"
He was disbarred however.
Not that anyone cares.
Moving the goalposts, are we?
