Three. The first was Andrew Johnson, then Bill Clinton, and most recently (as of Dec. 18, 2019), Donald Trump.

To impeach a president, the House of Representatives must pass articles of impeachment (which are the set of charges against a president) by a simple majority, which is why Richard Nixon isn’t on this list—he resigned before articles of impeachment could be voted on. From there, the president is tried by the Senate. A removal from office requires a two-thirds majority vote.

The correct answer is two. The first being Andrew Johnson the second being Richard Nixon. Bill Clinton was not impeached and as of today neither has Donald Trump.

I think two. Andrew Jhonson and Bill Clinton but both were released by the senate. Last days Donald Trump also count in the list but not in records now but he is also released by the senate.
