Former President Bill Clinton admitted to lying under oath about an affair with a 22 year old White House intern. He was impeached and acquitted, with all Senate Democrats and five Senate Republicans acquitting him on all articles of impeachment.

President Donald Trump withheld aid from a foreign ally on the condition that the country's president open investigations into his political rivals. Senate Republicans refused to hear firsthand witnesses with explosive allegations in the Senate trial. Multiple Senate Republicans condemned Trump's actions, but only one voted to convict him—the first time in U.S. history a Senator voted to convict an impeached President of his or her own party.

Though both Presidents were acquitted, a new video from The Recount is demonstrating just how differently the two men treated the outcome.

Despite hours of arguments and 75% of Americans in favor, the Republican-dominated United States Senate is expected to vote down the Democratic effort to hear from additional witnesses, likely bringing the impeachment trial against President Donald Trump to an end by Friday night.

The votes come even after explosive allegations from former National Security Advisor John Bolton, who said the President explicitly sought to withhold foreign aid from Ukraine until it announced investigations into his political opponent. Bolton was prepared to testify if the Senate subpoenaed him.

Federal jails fall under the jurisdiction of the Department of Justice which falls under the authority of Attorney General William Barr who was appointed by President Donald Trump. So when a federal prisoner—with potentially damaging information about numerous powerful people—who's supposed to be on 24/7 suicide watch after a prior attempt commits suicide in federal custody, the most logical explanation is that former President Bill Clinton and Secretary Hillary Clinton did it.

Or at least that's the story right wing conspiracy theorists are pushing. As well as the person ultimately responsible for maintaining the safety of federal prisoners, Donald Trump.

With revelations from the Mueller Report shaking the public's faith in President Donald Trump, the calls to commence impeachment proceedings are growing louder, with Democratic Senators and presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris already on board.

Some Democrats insist that impeachment would be a dangerous move, citing the Republican majority in the Senate and the risk the left runs at looking hell-bent on removing Trump despite the lack of a proverbial "smoking gun" in Mueller's report.

Though the 90's may seem like a distant memory to most, for some—like Monica Lewinsky—the decade is all too vivid.

News of then-President Bill Clinton's sexual relationship with Lewinsky while she was a White House intern became public in 1998. Lewinsky was harassed and mocked by a country that suddenly had intimate knowledge of a deeply personal facet of her life—one that would define her to the public for decades.
