Suborning perjury is very serious. Obstruction of Justice is very serious. If a president shop-lifted a cany bar: not serious. If he tries to cover it up, that is an impeachable offense. Those who say he was "impeached for essentially nothing" lack the understanding of 1) ethics, 2) morals, and 3) the rule of law as an environment, to put forward a meaningful opinion.

Fifteen years ago, after special prosecutor Ken Starr questioned President Bill Clinton about his involvement with Monica Lewinsky, Starr—overcome with a “sense of gloom”—shambled into his Virginia home, collapsed into bed, and asked himself, “How could a sensible and sane government come to this?”

That’s the story scholar Ken Gormley tells in The Death of American Virtue: His 2010 book is the most thorough history of the crisis that escalated on Jan. 26, 1998, when Clinton claimed in a nationally televised White House news conference, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky.”
