Impeachment 1998 VS 2019

For the third time in American history, the second in twenty years, the House of Representatives passed an impeachment resolution against a president.

This year, House Democrats enacted a resolution by party line vote charging President Trump with “abuse of power” and “contempt of Congress.” Unique differences exist between the impeachment hearings of 1998 and 2019 but both are similar in important foundational ways, to the point of making them political mirror images of each other.
