  1. Even if you don't think that what she said was accurate (as far as using the correct legal terms) and there was no intention to deceive, impeachment did indeed occur. She was talking to college students and college students probably know about Nixon or at the very least could look it up. Judiciary Committee Approves Article to Impeach President Nixon, 27 to 11 So it was more than just thinking about impeachment. It actually was voted on by the Judiciary Committee. It was in the process of going further when Nixon resigned.
  2. You really think Hillary Clinton was trying to deceive people as to why Nixon resigned?
  3. Impeachment is the proceedings http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Impeachment Impeachment A process that is used to charge, try, and remove public officials for misconduct while in office.
  4. Did Nixon continue his presidency after impeachment? Did he fulfill his second term? If not, why?
  5. Had impeachment proceedings not started, would Nixon had resigned? Why would he?
  6. Who's saying Nixon was impeached? And who is saying the impeachment process is the same as being impeached. In fact, I've said the opposite several times.
  7. Now I understand. It's just ignorance on your part. Because what I bolded is false. They are not the same thing and your insistence that it is is part of your problem. One more time: Impeachment is a process; impeached is an end result of impeachment. They are not the same. Nixon resigned before he was impeached. I think we can at least agree it was a forgone conclusion had he not resigned, no?
  8. He wasn't impeached, but impeachment proceedings did indeed end his presidency. He resigned shortly after that.
  9. There were impeachment proceedings before Nixon resigned. And had he not resigned he would have been impeached. After Nixon resigned, Gerald Ford pardoned him and that ended it all.
  10. Impeachment is the process. Impeached would be the conclusion. Did she say impeachment or impeached?
  11. The minute-by-minute events of the "Saturday Night Massacre" were covered live by stunned reporters on network television starting about 8:30 p.m. and sent a political shockwave throughout America that led to immediate calls for impeachment. "Whether ours shall continue to be a government of laws and not of men is now for Congress and ultimately the American people," Archibald Cox stated after his firing. Ten days later, impeachment proceedings in the House of Representatives began as the House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Peter Rodino, started its preliminary investigation. Nixon responded to public outrage by initially agreeing to turn over some of the tapes. However, the White House then revealed that two of the tapes no longer existed and later revealed there was an 18 minute blank gap on a crucial recording of the President and H.R. Haldeman taped three days after the Watergate break-in. Nixon's new Chief of Staff Alexander M. Haig Jr. suggested the possibility that "some sinister force" had erased portions of the subpoenaed tape. President Nixon's personal secretary Rose Mary Woods was eventually blamed as having caused the erasure supposedly after she had been asked to prepare a summary of taped conversations for the President. In November of 1973, amid all of the controversy, Nixon made a scheduled appearance before 400 Associated Press managing editors in Florida. During a feisty question and answer period he maintained his innocence, stating, "... in all of my years in public life I have never obstructed justice...People have got to know whether or not their President is a crook. Well, I'm not a crook."
  12. Clinton used the word in the right context and is historically correct. Impeachment is a process that is used to charge, try, and remove public officials for misconduct while in office. Are you really saying Nixon resigned before any impeachment process was started?
  13. He's been progressing quite well since being a sandwich pick. He will surely be needed in about 2-3 years when some contracts come off the books. Hopefully, he will be ready then.
  14. He seems to be raking it pretty well in the minors, despite what the national "scouts" have said.
