Impeachment is an often talked about topic to those opposed to the current sitting president of the United States. What roles do each of the houses of congress play in the impeachment process and has a president ever been truly impeached?
The House of Representatives must vote to impeach the President of the United States, if successful, the Senate will then hold a trial to decide. While two presidents - Andrew Johnson & Bill Clinton - have been voted to be impeached by the House of Representatives neither were impeached following a trial by the senate, meaning no United States President has ever been formally impeached.
Alexander the Great wanted to conquer the all of the known world (which to his knowledge ended in India.) Why did Alexander the Great leave India?

Women served a much more important role in the west and their western male counterparts wanted to reward them for their hard work.
