Nixon was impeached for high crimes and misdemeanours . . . violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his consitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed . . . endeavoured to obtain from the Internal Revenue Service, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, confidential information contained in income tax returns for purposed not authorized by law, and to cause, in violation of the constitutional rights of citizens, income tax audits or other income tax investigations to be intitiated or conducted in a discriminatory manner . . .
The differences between Nixon and Obama? Nixon was a member of a party that values integrity, while Obama is a far more corrupt member of a party that celebrates dishonesty and abuse of power. Obama's people will stand behind him if we bother impeaching the criminal. No point in trying to remove him when the Senate loves his crimes.

The House Judiciary Committee chaired by Peter Rodino voted for the first article of impeachment, the crime of obstructing the investigation of the Watergate burglary, on July 27th, 1974, followed by several more over the next few days, however the full House never voted on the charges, Nixon resigned first, therefore he was not impeached.
