It’s one of those moments for which you remember where you were when the impeachment was announced. For me, seeing the news on multiple TV screens at the local Costco. A small cheer went up from the shoppers who were watching.

Yes, those were the days when FReepers were more than keyboard commandos.

Eagles up!

No, it’s not old news. Every person in America needs to be reminded how Clinton embarrassed our nation.

Clinton defiled one of our most sacred institutions, the oval office.

How this man EVER received a security clearance is absolutely beyond me! Slick Willey was/is a national security threat.

During the height of the cold war, our enemies would have used this in an effort to blackmail the world’s most powerful person for their gain.

Thank you for reminding me this morning of just how corrupt our government has become!

Thanks for the reminder, kristinn.

An Internet based rally was a very new thing back then. I had been lurking here about three months, and when the call was issued I was determined to be there on October 31, 1998 for the March for Justice.I would join FR on December 30, 1998.

It was awesome—4,000 people showed up from all over the country. And we all paid our own way, no union paid for bussing!

Seven weeks later, Clinton was impeached.

Then the Senate failed America on February 12, 1999 by letting a law-breaking President stay in office instead of doing their duty. The ironic thing is, that had Gore become the President at that time, he probably would have become President in 2000. The Dems choose Clinton and they got him.

Clinton would go on in 1999 and 2000 to do amazing things—like bomb schools, hospitals and trains with regular people on them in Bosnia, and sending a terrified eight year old back to Castro, after his mother drowned to get the boy to American soil.

Kristinn, I remember well the Saturday mornings at the White House, the “Crime Wave” poster,the tourists taking their pictures with us. It was an honor to stand with you and others at that time.

I also remember the terrific job you did on TV representing Free Republic. And I will never forgive that SOB Bill O’Reilly for the BS ambush number he did on you and FR in 2007.

Since the 2009 and 2010 rallies in DC there has been no action by conservatives-—how I wish for an opportunity to communicate our intense dissatisfaction with the DC ruling class in both parties and what they are doing to our country.

Thanks for trip down memory lane. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Only the second president to be impeached in UNITED STATES HISTORY!!!

If the Left did not control the MSN, the anniversaries of such an infamous event and infamous president would be popularly recognized like 12/7,4/20 and 9/11...only obtuse narrow sighted historically benighted dumasses would blow the historical importance of this anniversery off.

One of the scariest things from that time was how clinton told lewinski that Bettie Currie's brother (who had previously been severely beaten just before her Chinagate testimony) had just been killed in a hit and run and, by the way, now she was going to be a witness against him.

Clinton "telephoned Lewinsky at 2 a.m. with two pieces of news: that Currie's brother had died in a car accident, and that Lewinsky had been named as a potential witness in the Paula Jones sexual harassment lawsuit."
Washington Post

For those of you that never followed the case of clinton private eye/goon Pellicano (he is the one who came out with phony tests saying Jennifer Flowers tapes had been altered): When arrested, they found C-4 and other explosives in his safe.

At his trial, a witness testified about how he bragged about how he could make murder look like an accident or suicide.

Another witness: "A hedge fund manager testified Tuesday that indicted private eye Anthony Pellicano suggested that a film producer and one-time Nevada gubernatorial candidate could be murdered over an investment dispute.

Adam Sender told jurors the idea came while he and Pellicano met and talked about Sender's lawsuit against Aaron Russo.

Sender said he was told by Pellicano, "If I wanted to I could authorize him to have (Russo) murdered on the way back from Las Vegas, have someone follow him back, drive him off the road and bury his body somewhere in the desert."

He was sentenced to 15 years.

Sadly too many freepers have bought into the "it was just about sex" mantra.

The clinton crime machine made Obama look like an amateur. Seeing the homosexual pro-hillary website Hillbuzz getting linked on FR makes this long time freeper sick.

I think with the unchecked huberus of The Won,we may get an impeachment AND a conviction in Senate this time, and it won’t be about sex, either.

Yippee! That was a great time.

Proud near-charter member of FR! I sure wish I recall what my original screen name was, though...

FR was very ‘together’ in those days, and for the five or so years following. Sometime after Iraq, we started splintering for some reason or other, but that is a different discussion.

For now, I’ll just celebrate Impeachment Day! Too bad that we’re not having Impeachment hearings for Obama today. He and several members of his administration sure deserve it.

In retrospect, it is a tragedy that Ken Starr threw the game in a very cynical manner, wasting tens of millions of dollars and precious time ignoring serious felony charges, to concentrate on one that was just petty, salacious, embarrassing to the country, and demeaning to the office.

It is no surprise that Clinton was acquitted by the senate, as the vast majority of senators are guilty of far worse, and they had no stomach to call “the kettle”, “the first black president”.

So, Bill Clinton goes down in history as the second impeached president, as well as denying Al Gore the presidency by default. A small saving grace, I suppose, denying America of “the first robotic president”.

And the feckless Republican Senate refused to have a "real trial"! That was the last straw for this life long Republican. It of course was simply the fore bearer of what the "party" was to become.

Good on the House, however.

I am a strong believer in impeachment, which congress has mostly done for corrupt federal judges (14 of them), but should be far more willing to do.

The Constitution grants the House the power to impeach “The President, the Vice President, and all civil Officers of the United States.” But only once has congress impeached a cabinet officer (William W. Belknap (Secretary of War)).

If there was a Republican senate right now, the House could immediately begin impeachment proceedings against Holder, Sibelius, Napolitano, etc. But there are lots of questions that need to be addressed, like “Can congress impeach a ‘Czar’ unapproved by the US senate?”

Thanks for this reminder... I’m proud to have made the 6 hour drive down I-95 (seeing numerous cars with Freepers enroute) to be a part of that first march, joining fellow Freepers down on the Mall. I felt that each of us in that crowd of 4,000 was representing hundreds of thousands of others who hadn’t yet figured out what tyrants the Clintons were.

Hopefully, sanity will one day be restored to our Republic.

Kristinn, it’s difficult to remember all of the legal details, but as I recall, the Judge (who had some kind of relationship with Clinton prior) in the Paula Jones case in Little Rock refused to make her ruling until after the impeachment proceedings... Afterwards, she would rule that (or something like) Clinton suborned perjury in that case and granted Paula Jones some large (for Arkansas) monetary award. Clinton was later stripped of his law license in the state of Arkansas. I’m sure some Freeper can clean-up my spotty recollections but that’s the way Clinton made it through the Impeachment process — delay, obfuscate, and have friendly allies in the judiciary and, of course, the media.

And look what his better half has done. Systematic Failures at her State Department that got 4 Americans killed including a US Ambassador. She was not qualified to be Secretary of State. Bill was not qualified to be President. The results speak for themselves.

I loved that photo the moment I saw it on Impeachment Day. You can just see all the little gears spinning in their heads. Slick looks just like some fifth-grade bully steaming over some slight, plotting his revenge. Hillary’s skipping along cheerily telling him the Republicans don’t have a legal leg to stand on, being hopeful all the while that she herself could somehow end up as president as a result of the impeachment. Gore’s giddy with anticipation. You can even see (or am I imagining these things?) Gephart running through his political calculations. It is a GREAT photo and doesn’t cast that crew in a very good light, imo. That’s why I knew it’d quickly be scrubbed from the internet (and it was within weeks) and that I’d better snag it!

We can have great fun with that pic. It deserves to be a post of it’s own. Caption this picture of Slick Willy going down!

December 19,1998, the 105th Congress approved two articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton.

Photoshop folks can dub the apparent thoughts. LOL!
