Nixon was not impeached.

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.

The government agency listening to what I am posting is causing double posts.

Please adjust your equipment.

Nixons only crime was getting caught. All POTUS did that sort of stuff.
FDR was the worse.

Got a citation? It was widely reported that he resigned rather than face an impeachment vote in the House that he would certainly lose.

You are incorrect. The House did not vote. Nixon resigned before a vote because advisers convinced him the vote would be in favor of impeachment. But the vote never took place.

No, Nixon was not impeached. The only vote for impeachment was made by the House Judiciary Committee (approved 21-17). Nixon resigned from office before the full House of Representatives voted.
