Only three US presidents have faced impeachment before him — Andrew Johnson in 1868 and Bill Clinton in 1998 were both impeached, while Richard Nixon resigned before he could be impeached in 1974. The House impeached Trump on two articles on December 18, 2019. Three other presidents have faced impeachment proceedings, but only two have been successfully impeached. On December 19, 1998, the House impeached Clinton for two of the articles — perjury and obstructing justice. Despite being impeached, Clinton refused to step down.

The team around Trump is hollowed out, with the White House counsel's office not drawing up a legal defense plan and the legislative affairs team largely abandoned. WASHINGTON (AP) — His place in the history books about to be rewritten, President Donald Trump awaited his second impeachment — something no other president has faced — largely alone and silent. Trump kept out of sight in a nearly empty White House as impeachment proceedings played out at the heavily fortified Capitol. There were lawyers, White House messaging meetings, and a media blitz run by allies on conservative television, radio and websites. But there was no effort from the White House to line up votes in the president's defense.

The Impeachment Proceedings That Came Before

The charges pertained not directly to his misconduct with the intern, Monica Lewinsky — who was 22, nearly three decades younger than Mr. Clinton, when it began — but to the allegation that Mr. Clinton had lied about it under oath and encouraged others to do the same. “I did not have sexual relations with that woman,” Mr. Clinton said in January 1998, before admitting months later that he had. The votes were 228 to 206 on the perjury charge (with five Democrats voting for impeachment and five Republicans voting against it) and 221 to 212 on the obstruction charge (with five Democrats voting for and 12 Republicans voting against). The House voted against impeachment on a second perjury charge and on an abuse of power charge. A two-thirds majority would have been required to convict Mr. Clinton and remove him from office.

Secret Service agents were forced to testify during an investigation into then-President Bill Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. Ex-President Richard Nixon also rejected Secret Service protection, saying it would save the public money. "That is a very, very slippery slope to go down as far as the Secret Service is concerned," said former Secret Service agent Joe Funk, a 21-year veteran of the Secret Service who served on the details of presidents George H. W. Bush and Clinton. But the courts rejected their argument that Secret Service agents deserve special confidentiality privileges. Trump's older children — Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Tiffany Trump — get Secret Service protection only while their father is president.

Trump was caught red-handed, on tape, attempting to strong arm Georgia's Republican Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger into inventing thousands of votes to tip the election in Trump's favor. We cannot be so numbed by Trump's corruption and abuse of power to let this pass without consequence. Clinton allegedly lied under oath and used the power of the presidency to make an inconvenient witness shut up. It shouldn't come as a terrible shock that with barely more than two weeks in his presidency, Trump found a new bottom. But we cannot be numb to the fact that he was caught red-handed abusing his power and attempting to commit election fraud.

The Undoing of Jeffrey Toobin

Until Jeffrey Toobin’s fateful appointment with Zoom on Oct. 15, his quarantine was going better than most people’s. His third, about the Monica Lewinsky scandal, is being filmed by Ryan Murphy for a limited series on FX. And over on HBO, he was about to appear as himself on the whodunit “The Undoing,” delivering commentary on the murder trial that shapes the story’s arc. Then in a matter of minutes, Mr. Toobin, 60, committed the act that would make him subject, not observer, of scandal, investigation and commentary. The magazine suspended Mr. Toobin that day and executives began an investigation.

When former White House press secretary Jake Siewert recently spoke before a Columbia University class, the hosting professor described his resume in reverse chronological order. And before that, he worked as a White House press secretary under President Bill Clinton. Then-Vice President Joe Biden is pictured taking reporters' questions at a White House press briefing on June 17, 2010. That's how one former White House reporter described what it'll be like for the White House press corps to return to some semblance of normalcy in the briefing room when Biden moves in. Matthew Nussbaum covered the early days of the Trump White House for Politico after spending months on the 2016 campaign trail.
