File Under: Doh! ... New York Daily News: Clinton was "nearly impeached"

From today's (Tue. Aug. 9, 2005) New York Daily News, in an article by Greg B. Smith and Helen Kennedy:

"During her husband's trial, evidence emerged that linked Jeanine Pirro to her husband's dubious tax practices ... But the far more notorious womanizing was done by Bill Clinton, who was nearly impeached for lying about his relationships with Paula Jones and Monica Lewinsky." (emphasis mine)

"Nearly impeached"?? Of course, President Clinton was impeached. He, along with President Andrew Johnson, hold this "distinction." Both were acquitted.

Props to Larry Elder for this one.
