YES HE WAS. He resigned before the Senate imposed the penalty on him. Nixon knew he was finished when the house of Representatives voted for impeachment and sent the bill to the senate for a trial to be held.
No, not so. Nixon resigned BEFORE the House voted. The House and Senate minority leaders (Republicans) went to him on the night of August 7, 1974 and told him when the House voted for/against Impeachment they would not be able to get the votes to stop it. The Senate Republicans told him they only had 15 votes against conviction. Nixon agreed to resign that night.
The impeachment vote NEVER happened, as he resigned BEFORE it.
Google it, you will see.
Nixon was never impeached for anything. When it appeared likely that a House committee would vote to recommend that that the full House take up impeachment proceedings against Nixon; it was then that Nixon decided to resign. There was never any vote for impeachment for anything. There were never any articles of impeachment that were voted on by the House. Personally, I think Nixon should have stuck it out and fought the trumped up charges and witch-hunt of the leftist, self-righteous DemonRATs.
What?? Good God! Do your homework before before running off at the yap. Nixon was NOT impeached. Period.
