The differences between Trump’s impeachment and Clinton’s

Caroline Cournoyer of CBS News –

One thing that has gone unchanged is the politics in Congress. In both cases, Democrats and Republicans largely defended their respective presidents.

Mr. Trump was impeached for obstructing Congress and abusing his power. Mr. Clinton was impeached for obstructing justice and lying to a grand jury.  

Clinton’s charges stemmed from a sexual harassment case against him and from his extramarital relationship with a White House intern. The issue in Trump’s impeachment deals more directly with his official duties. He’s accused of withholding military aid from Ukraine to pressure its president to launch investigations that would hurt his political rivals, namely former Vice President Joe Biden.
