    The senate could not get the majority vote which was sixty seven needed to convict the president.


    The senate failed to convict the president Clinton from his office against his charges of sexual harassment. To impeach the president, the majority of the votes which were needed were sixty seven but the senate could not get those votes. The number of votes that the seat got was 55 people who were against this decision. Thus they could not get the majority vote.
