During Watergate, the House Judiciary Committee considered five articles of impeachment against Richard Nixon — and voted down two of them. During the impeachment of Bill Clinton, the House voted on four articles —


1. Obstruction of justice

2. Contempt of Congress

3. Abuse of power

4. Impairing the administration of justice

5. Acceptance of emoluments


6. Corruption of elections

7. Abuse of pardons

8. Conduct grossly incompatible with the presidency
