Donald Trump is the third president in the history of the United States to be impeached.

He denied the affair

The first was the 17th President of the United States, Andrew Johnson, who was impeached in 1868 for high crimes and misdemeanors. His impeachment consisted of 11 counts under which he violated the mandate law, which aims to limit the president’s power to remove officials and find replacements for them without consulting the Senate.

Bill Clinton is the second American president to be impeached in 1998. Members of Congress then decided to do so because of the anger Clinton caused them after the scandal with Monica Lewinsky, an intern at the White House with whom he had an affair.

At first, Clinton denied a relationship with Monica. In impeachment points, congressmen claimed Clinton had sworn falsely, lying to investigators about his relationship with Monica, and said he was obstructing justice, urging White House staff to deny the affair.

Nixon resigned

Although the 37th President of the United States, Richard Nixon, was due to be revoked in 1974, he resigned as president before the trial took place.

On January 13, 2021, Donald Trump was also voted to be impeached. However, Trump will occupy a special place in the history of the United States because he is the first president to be impeached twice.

Earlier, it was reported that thousands of Trump supporters violently stormed the Capitol during the certification process of the results of the US presidential elections, in which the Republican mogul Donald Trump, who denounces an “Electoral fraud”, was defeated by the Democrat, Joe Biden. Also, a woman was shot during the Capitol riots in Washington DC. Reports say that four died during the Washington riots.
