Abraham Lincoln should have been impeached. The arguments for the impeachment could be: Overstepping executive powers, overpassing the USC Amendments and Laws, and his blockade of southern ports because a blockade is only allowed when a war is declared and Lincoln said it was not a war but a rebellion.

No, his Vice President, Andrew Johnson, was impeached. When Lincoln was assassinated, Andrew Johnson became President, and then was impeached towards the end of his term. Johnson's impeachment charges were not confirmed by the Senate, and he was therefore, not removed from office, as President.
