1986 – U.S. District Judge Harry E. Claiborne became the fifth federal official to be removed from office through impeachment. The U.S. Senate convicted Claiborne of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”


Harry E. Claiborne, a judge on the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada, was impeached and removed from office on charges of income tax evasion in 1986. It was the first time that a judge had been impeached in more than five decades.

Impeachment Proceedings for Harry Claiborne
In 1984, Judge Claiborne became the first sitting Federal judge in the U.S. history to be found guilty of a felony when he was convicted of filing false income tax returns.

Prosecutors alleged that the federal judge failed to pay taxes on $106,000 in income he received in 1979 and 1980 for legal services performed prior to becoming a judge. Claiborne ultimately served 17 months of a two-year sentence before his release in 1987.

Judge Claiborne maintained his innocence, arguing that the charges were the result of a vendetta by federal prosecutors whom he ruled against in his courtroom. When Claiborne refused to resign after his conviction, the U.S. House of Representative began impeachment proceedings. Claiborne was subsequently impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives by a 406-to-0 vote. The four articles of impeachment included charges of tax evasion and bringing “disrepute” on the Federal court system.

Instead of the full Senate serving as a High Court of Impeachment, the Senate established a 12-member panel to conduct the trial. Relying on a never-before-used Senate rule adopted in 1935, the committee examined the evidence, heard testimony, and presented its findings to the full Senate. During closing arguments, Claiborne’s counsel unsuccessfully argued that the use of a trial committee was unconstitutional. The full Senate voted convict Claiborne, marking the first time the Senate tried and convicted a federal official who had already been convicted in a criminal court. Claiborne was removed from office on October 9, 1986.

30 Facts about the Impeachment of Andrew Johnson for kids


The Impeachment Trial of Andrew Johnson

Impeachment of Andrew Johnson

Fact 1: President Abraham Lincoln was assassinated in April 1865 and Vice President Andrew Johnson assumed the role of President of the United States at the end of the Civil War, as the Reconstruction of the South was just beginning
 Fact 2: Andrew Johnson was a Southern Democrat and, as such, had sympathies with the Confederacy and granted pardons to ex-Confederates on a large scale. He was inexperienced, a stubborn man with little patience. The government consisted of many radical Republicans and before long the President and Congress were in conflict due to Reconstruction Policies.
Fact 3: The radical Republicans believed that the President was behaving too leniently towards the Southern states who were attempting to restore self-rule and passing state laws referred to as the Black Codes. At the end of 1865, just six months after the end of the Civil War Andrew Johnson declared the end of Reconstruction.

Fact 4: The radical Republicans were outraged and were determined to establish a Congressional Reconstruction. The Southern Democrat President and the radical Republicans were in direct conflict and on a collision course that would end with the Impeachment of the President.
Fact 5: The President further infuriated Congress by vetoing an extension to the Freedmen’s Bureau
Fact 6: Republicans passed the Civil Rights Act of 1866 overriding the President’s veto.
Fact 7: The radicals become more powerful by gaining a two-thirds margin in the 1866 Congressional elections
Fact 8: Congress develop plans for the reunification of the South which will be referred to as Congressional Reconstruction
Fact 9: Congress passed the first of the Reconstruction Acts, overriding the President’s veto, which gave them military and political control of the Southern states.
Fact 10: The President replaces several generals who command the 5 military districts established by the Reconstruction Acts

Fact 11: Congress passed the Tenure of Office Act on March 2, 1867, overriding the President’s veto, to limit the President’s powers and prevent him dismissing radical Republicans from office.
Fact 12: The Tenure of Office Act was also passed to stop the President interfering with the Congressional plans for Reconstruction
Fact 13: The Tenure of Office Act forbids the President to remove any federal office-holder appointed by at the Senate without the further approval of the Senate
Fact 14: The Tenure of Office Act also provides that the President’s cabinet should hold office for the full term of the President plus one month, subject to removal by the Senate
Fact 15: The President is furious regarding the Tenure of Office Act claiming it is unconstitutional
Fact 16: The President continues to oppose congressional policy, and insists on the removal of the radical Secretary of War, Edwin M. Stanton, in defiance of the Tenure of Office Act .
Fact 17: Edwin Stanton, as Secretary of War, was an important member of the cabinet and a firm supporter of the radical Republicans
 Fact 18: Edwin Stanton was in open opposition to the policies of the President
Fact 19: Edwin Stanton refused to move and barricaded himself in his office claiming that the Tenure of Office Act protected him.
Fact 20: Congress supported Edwin Stanton’s claims asserting that by suspending Edwin Stanton and removing him from his cabinet without the consent of Congress, the President Johnson had breached the Tenure of Office Act.
Fact 21: Congress started Impeachment Proceedings against the President

Fact 22: Impeachment is a criminal proceeding against a public official requiring formal documentation and Articles of impeachment

Fact 28: March 30, 1868: The impeachment trial of Johnson begins in the Senate

Fact 29: May 16, 1868: The Senate voted on the 11th Article of Impeachment and is one vote short of the 2/3 majority needed to impeach the President

  • Update   George’s Prepared Foods, a Caryville, Tenn. establishment, is recalling approximately 6,444 pounds of ready-to-eat (RTE) pork sausage patty and turkey sausage patty products that may be contaminated with Salmonella, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
    The ready-to-eat pork and turkey sausage patty items were produced on April 19, 2019, April 27, 2019, May 7, 2019 and May 9, 2019. The following products are subject to recall: [View Labels (PDF only)]
    24.92-oz. packages containing “Great Value Fully Cooked Original Pork Sausage Patties” with use by date of 10/16/19 and lot code 1091971894.
    24.92-oz. packages containing “Great Value Fully Cooked Original Breakfast Turkey Patties” with use by date of 10/24/19 and lot code 1171971897.
    35.6-oz. packages containing “Family Size Great Value Fully Cooked Original Pork Sausage Patties” with use by date of 11/03/19 and lot code 1271972894 or use by date 11/05/19 and lot code 1291972894.
    The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. M2260T or P-2260T” printed on the package. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
    The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that the firm’s third-party cold storage facility had inadvertently shipped the ready-to-eat products to commerce.
    There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
    Consumption of ready-to-eat food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment. In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider.
    FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers or both. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
    FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at http://www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.
    Media and consumers with questions regarding the recall can contact George’s Prepared Foods’ Customer Care Line at (800) 471-9665.

  • Wawona Frozen Foods is voluntarily recalling packages of frozen raspberries and frozen berry mixes containing raspberries sold at Aldi Grocery Stores and frozen raspberries sold at Raley’s Family of Fine Stores because they have the potential to be contaminated with Hepatitis A. The frozen raspberries and frozen berry mixes containing raspberries were packaged under the Aldi and Raley’s private labels. Wawona Frozen Foods is issuing this voluntary recall out of an abundance of caution due to a positive test result taken as part of a government sampling program.
    There have been no illnesses associated with this voluntary and precautionary recall to date.
    Hepatitis A is a contagious virus that can cause liver disease. A Hepatitis A virus (HAV) infection can range in severity from a mild illness lasting a few weeks to a severe illness lasting several months. In rare cases, particularly consumers who have a pre-existing severe illness or are immune compromised, Hepatitis A infections can progress to liver failure. Illness usually occurs within 15 to 50 days after eating or drinking contaminated food or water. Symptoms of Hepatitis A infection include fever, headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, jaundice, dark urine or pale stool. In some instances, particularly in children under the age of six, Hepatitis A infection may be asymptomatic. Persons who may have consumed affected product should consult their health care provider or local health department to determine if a vaccination is appropriate and consumers with symptoms of Hepatitis A should contact their health providers or the local health department immediately.

    The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. M2206T or P-2260T” printed on the package. These items were shipped to retail locations nationwide.
    The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that the firm’s third-party cold storage facility had inadvertently shipped the ready-to-eat products to commerce.
    There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider.
    Consumption of ready-to-eat food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated product. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days. Most people recover without treatment. In some persons, however, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Older adults, infants, and persons with weakened immune systems are more likely to develop a severe illness. Individuals concerned about an illness should contact their health care provider.
    FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in consumers’ refrigerators or freezers or both. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
    FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, the retail distribution list(s) will be posted on the FSIS website at http://www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

  • Sanofi on Friday, October 18, initiated a voluntary recall of all Zantac OTC (over-the-counter) in the United States. This includes Zantac 150®, Zantac 150® Cool Mint, and Zantac 75®. Zantac tablets are an oral, over-the-counter product to prevent and relieve heartburn associated with acid ingestion and sour stomach.
    On September 13, 2019, the U.S Food and Drug Administration issued a public statement alerting that some ranitidine medicines, including Zantac OTC, could contain NDMA at low levels and asked manufacturers to conduct testing.
    Evaluations are ongoing on both drug substance (active ingredient) and finished drug product. Due to inconsistencies in preliminary test results of the active ingredient used in the U.S. products, Sanofi has made the decision to conduct the voluntary recall as the investigation continues.
    Active ingredients used in Sanofi’s ranitidine products outside of the U.S. and Canada are sourced from different suppliers. Sanofi has also issued a voluntary recall in Canada. The company is committed to transparency and will continue to communicate results with health authorities from the ongoing testing, and work with them to make informed decisions based on available data and evidence.
    Risk Statement: NDMA is classified as a probable human carcinogen (a substance that could cause cancer) based on results from laboratory tests. NDMA is a known environmental contaminant and found in water and foods, including meats, dairy products, and vegetables.
    Sanofi will be notifying its distributors and customers via email and via the Sanofi web site, and will arrange for return of all recalled products. Wholesalers (direct customers) will be asked to immediately stop distribution and return any stock to Sanofi, and contact the retail outlets in their group to do the same. Retailers will be asked to immediately stop dispensing Zantac tablets and return remaining stock to Sanofi by contacting INMAR at 877-275-0993 (option 1) or via fax at 336-499-8145 or email at zantacrecall@inmar.com. Consumers are asked to speak to their physician or pharmacist about alternate heartburn relief options.

  • Newport Beach, California. GL Holdings is voluntarily recalling six lots of Green Lumber 2-, 4-, and 10-capsule packages purchased on or before August 10, 2019 to the consumer level. FDA analysis has found one lot of Green Lumber distributed between June and August 2019 to be tainted with tadalafil.
    Consumption of a product with undeclared tadalafil may pose a risk to consumers who take prescription medications containing nitrates (such as nitroglycerin). The combination of tadalafil and nitrates may lower blood pressure to dangerous levels which can be life threatening. Consumers with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or heart disease often take nitrates and may be the population most likely to be affected. To date, GL Holdings has not received any reports of adverse events related to this recall.
    GL Holdings is recalling the lot that tested positive for tadalafil and, out of an abundance of caution, GL Holdings is also recalling all previous lots, thus this recall encompasses all Green Lumber products sold on or before August 10, 2019. Tadalafil is an FDA approved drug for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. The presence of tadalafil in the Green Lumber products renders them unapproved drugs for which safety and efficacy have not been established, and therefor subject to recall.
    The Green Lumber product is marketed as dietary supplements for male sexual enhancement and is packaged in 2-, 4-, and 10-capsule blister packs.
    The Green Lumber lot that tested positive for tadalafil was sold between June 10 and August 10, 2019. Some of the blister packs are marked with “XC06 EXP 06/2022.” It is sold in a white wrapper with a green Green Lumber logo on the front and has one of the following UPC codes:
    2 pack: X0020TSV4R
    4 pack: X0020TRRHJ
    10 Pack: X0020TUJLZ
    Other lots that are being recalled were sold between April 1, 2018 and June 10, 2019 and may have a different UPC code on the package. Some of these blister packages are marked with one of the following “XC12EXP12/2020,” “XC06EXP06/2021,” “XC10EXP10/2021,” “XC02EXP02/2022,” or “XC04EXP04/2022.”
    Images of these packages are included below so that they may be more easily identified by consumers.
    This product was distributed in the United States and Canada via internet sales.
    GL Holdings is notifying its distributors and customers by email and is arranging for replacement of recalled products, at the request of the customer. Consumers with questions regarding this recall can contact GL Holdings via email at recall@greenlumber.com at any time or by phone at 949-426-8622 on Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Pacific Time.
    Consumers who purchased the product should stop consuming it and return any unused product to GL Holdings. Consumers should contact their physician or healthcare provider if they have experienced any problems that may be related to taking or using this drug product.
    Adverse reactions or quality problems experienced with the use of this product may be reported to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program either online, by regular mail or by fax.

    The products subject to recall bear establishment number “EST. 18506” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to commercial distributors and a cold storage warehouse in Florida.
    The problem was discovered when the firm was notified by their third-party laboratory that a sample was positive for E. coli O157:H7, but the products associated with the sample had already been shipped into commerce. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products.
    Anyone concerned about an injury or illness should contact a healthcare provider. E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2–8 days (3–4 days, on average) after exposure the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.
    FSIS is concerned that some product may be frozen and in Commercial Distributor’s freezers. Distributors who have obtained these products are urged not to distribute them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of origin.
    FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.

    FSIS advises all consumers to safely prepare their raw meat products, including fresh and frozen, and only consume ground beef that has been cooked to a temperature of 160°F. The only way to confirm that ground beef is cooked to a temperature high enough to kill harmful bacteria is to use a food thermometer that measures internal temperature, https://www.fsis.usda.gov/safetempchart.

  • Mical Seafood, Inc. of Cooper City, FL, has voluntarily initiated an expanded recall of frozen, wild-caught yellowfin Tuna Loins, Tuna Poke, Tuna Steaks, Tuna Ground Meat, and Tuna Saku (products of Vietnam) due to potentially elevated levels of histamine. Elevated levels of histamines can produce an allergic reaction called scombroid fish poisoning that may result in symptoms that can generally appear within minutes to several hours after eating the affected fish.
    The most common symptoms of histamine or scombroid fish poisoning are tingling or burning sensation in the mouth, facial swelling, rash, hives and itchy skin, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea; these symptoms usually resolve within several hours without medical intervention. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. If symptoms are severe an individual should seek immediate medical attention for treatment.
    These tuna products were wholesaled to customers in: AL, CA, FL, GA, ID, IL, IN, LA, MA, MI, MN, MO, MS, NC, NJ, NV, NY, PA, RI, TX, UT, VA and WI.

  • Tip Top Poultry, Inc, a Rockmart, Ga., establishment, is recalling an undetermined amount of ready-to-eat (RTE) poultry products that may be adulterated with Listeria monocytogenes, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today.
    The frozen cooked, diced or shredded, RTE chicken products were produced between January 21, 2019 and September 24, 2019. The products subject to recall can be found in this spreadsheet. [View labels (PDF only)].
    The products subject to recall bear establishment number “Est. P-17453” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These items were shipped to institutions nationwide in the United States and Canada (see the recalled products distributed in Canada).
    The problem was discovered when the firm notified FSIS that multiple samples of product produced by Tip Top Poultry, Inc. confirmed positive for the presence of Listeria monocytogenes after being tested in Canada. The firm decided to recall all cooked, diced or shredded, RTE chicken products produced from January 21, 2019 through September 24, 2019 with product codes ranging from 10000 to 19999 and 70000 to 79999.

    Consumption of food contaminated with L. monocytogenes can cause listeriosis, a serious infection that primarily affects older adults, persons with weakened immune systems, and pregnant women and their newborns. Less commonly, persons outside these risk groups are affected.
    Listeriosis can cause fever, muscle aches, headache, stiff neck, confusion, loss of balance and convulsions sometimes preceded by diarrhea or other gastrointestinal symptoms. An invasive infection spreads beyond the gastrointestinal tract. In pregnant women, the infection can cause miscarriages, stillbirths, premature delivery or life-threatening infection of the newborn. In addition, serious and sometimes fatal infections in older adults and persons with weakened immune systems. Listeriosis is treated with antibiotics. Persons in the higher-risk categories who experience flu-like symptoms within two months after eating contaminated food should seek medical care and tell the health care provider about eating the contaminated food.
    FSIS is concerned that some product may be in institutional and consumers’ refrigerators and freezers. Consumers who have purchased these products are urged not to consume them and institutions that have purchased these products are urged not to serve them. These products should be thrown away or returned to the place of purchase.
    FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to verify recalling firms notify their customers of the recall and that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers. When available, a retail distribution list(s), if applicable, will be posted on the FSIS website at http://www.fsis.usda.gov/recalls.

  • Mical Seafood, Inc. of Cooper City, FL, voluntarily initiated a recall of frozen, wild-caught yellowfin tuna poke cubes, tuna loins, tuna ground meat and 6oz tuna steaks because of potentially elevated levels of histamine. Elevated levels of histamines can produce an allergic reaction called scombroid fish poisoning that may result in symptoms that can generally appear within minutes to several hours after eating the affected fish.
    The most common symptoms of histamine or scombroid fish poisoning are tingling or burning sensation in the mouth, facial swelling, rash, hives and itchy skin, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea; these symptoms usually resolve within several hours without medical intervention. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. If symptoms are severe an individual should seek immediate medical attention for treatment.
    These tuna products were sold to customers in Maryland, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Florida, Texas, Alabama, North Carolina, California Michigan, Rhode Island, U.S. Virgin Islands, Sint Maarten and Grand Cayman.
    The tuna products have production dates between 04/02/2019 to 05/14/2019.

    , or by calling our King Arthur Flour Consumer Hotline at 866-797-9178.
    Consumer safety is our top priority. Consumers are reminded to wash their hands, work surfaces, and utensils thoroughly after contact with raw dough products or flour, and to never eat raw dough or batter. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) warns consumers to not consume raw products made with flour. E. coli O26 is killed by heat through baking, frying, sautéing, or boiling products made with flour.
    For more information, refer to the following: https://www.cdc.gov/features/no-raw-dough/index.html.
    Symptoms of E. coli O26 illness include acute, often bloody diarrheal illness and abdominal cramps. Most people recover within a week. However, children, the elderly, and immunosuppressed individuals may develop hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a severe illness which may cause the kidneys to fail.
    Bakers have trusted King Arthur Flour products in their kitchens for over 225 years and because of that trust we have issued this voluntary recall. We remain committed to providing our consumers safe and superior products.
