"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."

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.

Google it. The House voted the article to impeach him.
