@Hinoron I was a kid back then but if I remember my history correctly, it was the Republicans who impeached Bill Clinton (a Democrat). It wasn't the voters who did it. In the end, it required 67 out of 100 senators to vote to remove him from office. Which they didn't get.

And to put a finer point on it. The Republican leaders who voted to impeach Clinton on "moral" grounds were all later found to have had extramarital affairs of their own. One of them was with 4 male students while he was teacher at a high school. So, yeah, with that level of hypocrisy going on, it is very unlikely that the Republicans will try to impeach one of their own.
