Nah, not under a rock and I actually remember the while Lewinsky fiasco. I remember people saying he should be ran out of office, but I never remember
him actually going to impeachment trial.
I also find it odd that so many people here know or claim to have known without searching the net for the info, while the people I have talked to in
my city and asked if they knew Clinton was impeached - worded the same as the trivia card - were also unaware of any impeachment proceedings.
In fact I have asked close to 50 people over the past few days and not even a single person has said they remember the impeachment. That is why I am
curious if there is actually a reason why many people may not be aware of this impeachment.
Also makes me wonder if there are any other regions where a lot of people have no idea about the facts of impeachment and/or that he was impeached in
Also, about the OP. I was readin from a trivia card and it made no distinction on whether he was impeached or was sent to impeachment trials.
The trivia clue is as follows:
2. The 2nd President to be impeached.
So it gives the impression that he was impeached the same as the first presidential impeachment, instead of differentiating from the two situations
and the type of impeachment involved in each.
