Only three U.S. presidents have been formally impeached by Congress: Andrew Johnson, Bill Clinton and Donald Trump. So far, no U.S. president has ever been removed from office through impeachment.

In addition to Johnson, Clinton and Trump, only one other U.S. president has faced formal impeachment inquiries in the House of Representatives: Richard Nixon.

Andrew Johnson (in 1868) and Bill Clinton (in 1998) were the only two US presidents to be impeached. Neither one was convicted , so both finished their terms.

Preliminary steps had begun in the House to impeach Richard Nixon when he resigned as President in 1974.

Two presidents were impeached by the House of Representatives, Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton. Both, however, were acquitted by the Senate, and finished out their terms.

President Richard Nixon resigned from office rather than face impeachment.

It MAY come to a surprise that only three presidents have been impeached. Andrew Johnson (17th), Bill Clinton (42nd), and Donald Trump (45th). None of these presidents have been successfully been removed from office, but it is still possible in Congress.

Andrew Johnson and Bill Clinton were both impeached.

Since some people think" impeached" means canned, sacked, fired, or given the boot. I will just clarify here that the act of impeaching is strictly a House of Representatives action. It is the House indicting the person for possible dissmissal . The trial is then held by the Senate. Neither Johnson or Clinton were convicted, so both remained in office. Other federal officials besides the President can be impeached by the House and tried by the Senate.

The fact that only two US presidents have been impeached lends a good deal of gravity to impeachment.

Name of us presidents that have been impeached?

Bill Clinton and Andrew Johnson are the only two US presidents to be impeached, but impeachment is only the first step in the process of removing a president. (Many people think "impeached" means "thrown out of office," but that is not true.) The procedure for removing a president involves both houses of Congress. After first being impeached (which is like being indicted) in the House of Representatives, a vote must then be taken in the US Senate; if a majority of senators agree, then the president is removed. In the cases of Presidents Clinton and Johnson, the Senate did not vote to convict them, so both men finished their terms as president.
