AMERICA'S FIRST
IMPEACHED PRESIDENT

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who was America's first President to be impeached?

Andrew Johnson, the seventeenth President of the United States, held office from 1865 to 1869, but his term was almost shorter as he became the first American President to be impeached.

In 1868 the House of Representatives impeached Andrew Johnson due to his views on the south and the Confederates, but he was acquitted by a single vote.

The only other President to be impeached was Bill Clinton on December 19 1998 by the House of Representatives on grounds of perjury.

Bill Clinton was also acquitted, there have not been any successful impeachments of American Presidents to this date.

Richard Nixon was facing imminent impeachment but resigned before the proceedings took place.
