Articles of Impeachment, I-III
House Judiciary Committee Members debated and voted on three articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton, two for perjury and one for obstruction of justice. All three articles passed generally along party lines, with the first article passing minutes after the president made a public apology for his actions. Democrats argued that the articles were not specific, were unwarranted, and were unnecessary. Republicans argued that his actions were illegal and displayed a pattern of deception which warranted impeachment. close
