That is correct, but Clinton was not the first. Ford was.

I am not real aware of any uses of the WPR against the president in the past, my US History teacher thinks it is a joke and that it will last minutes in the supreme court before being tossed out. He views it as an effort by Congress to gain more power over the president, while also hopefully decreasing the number of deaths of US Service Men overseas.
