Richard Nixon
37th U.S. President About President Nixon: He served as vice president under Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower from 1953-61. Nixon ran unsuccessfully for the presidency in 1960, losing by a very close margin to John F. Kennedy. In 1962, Nixon ran unsuccessfully for Governor of California. This second loss led Nixon to bitterly announce he was leaving politics, telling reporters " won't have Nixon to kick around anymore." However, he re-emerged as a presidential candidate in 1968 and ran a successful campaign against Democrat Hubert Humphrey, squeaking out a victory in one of the closest elections in U.S. history. In 1972, Nixon ran for re-election against Democrat George McGovern and swept to victory in a landslide with 60 percent of the popular vote, winning in every state except Massachusetts. ADVERTISEMENT Events Leading to Impeachment: A break-in occurred on the night of June 17, 1972, as five burglars entered the Democratic National Committee offices inside the Watergate office complex in Washington. Discovered by 24-year-old night watchman Frank Wills, they were arrested at the scene by police at 2:30 a.m.

    The Origins and Scope of Presidential Impeachment
    Submitted by davidswanson on Tue, 2008-07-29 12:36 By Matthew R. Romney, University of Utah This essay discusses the historical background leading to the inclusion of the impeachment clause in Section 4 of Article II of the U.S. Constitution. In English parliamentary history, American colonial history, and American state constitutions under the Articles of Confederation, considerably varied answers were given to relevant questions. These included: What is impeachment, who is subject to it, what offenses can it reach, who can exercise the power of impeachment and trial, and what penalties can be imposed? The author concludes that the history of impeachment provided quite unclear guides to the Constitution’s framers, and the evidence from the Constitutional Convention likewise leaves the framers’ intent as to scope (what is impeachable) quite unclear. Introduction Impeachment in England Alexander Hamilton wrote in Federalist Paper #65 that the Parliamentary practice of impeachment served as “‘the model from which [impeachment] has been borrowed’” (Cooke 1961, 439), and considering the respect for law and government that the American colonists had inherited from their mother country, it seems to be the obvious beginning. But the precise origins in British history are nebulous. Historians have found antecedents for the practice of impeachment in the early Norman period, and even as far back as the city states of ancient Greece. In England, during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, several incidents occurred which involved the removal of royal officials by the King with the consent of Parliament. Such events served as precedents which Parliament, especially the House of Commons, used to justify later impeachments. Still, some consensus exists that these were not impeachments in a modern context (Melton 1998, 24-25).

    Library of Congress In its broadest sense, impeachment is the process by which public officials may be removed from office on the basis of their conduct. Strictly speaking, it is the decision by a legislature to accuse an official of one or more offenses that warrant removal according to constitutional standards. A vote to impeach then triggers a trial based on those charges. The most famous impeachment proceedings have involved presidents, but every state has its own procedures. Most follow the federal model in general, but vary widely in their specifics. At the federal level, impeachment starts in the House of Representatives, where members may initiate resolutions to impeach a sitting president. The House Judiciary Committee decides if a resolution merits a formal impeachment inquiry. A simple majority vote in the full House can launch a formal inquiry. The House Judiciary Committee conducts an investigation to determine if allegations against a president warrant charges, or articles of impeachment. The U.S. Constitution states that, "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors."

Impeachment trial of President Andrew Johnson
Previous Chapter Next Chapter Quote Fourth Circuit Court of Virginia was the jurisdiction Andrew Johnson wanted for the treason trial of Confederate President Jefferson Davis Military officials wanted to try him in their courts. The authorities debated over the jurisdiction for two years while Davis was imprisoned. Johnson knew a military trial would make Davis a martyr. Chase refused to hear cases in the Virginia Circuit while the State was still under the military government and not until the writ of habeas corpus was restored. When Chase finally sat at the Davis trial in November 1868 he approved Davis' lawyer's argument that the 14th Amendment that had recently gone into effect applied to Davis. In December Johnson issued a general amnesty. At the next session of circuit court, Chase discharged Davis on the grounds he was included in the pardon and could not be tried ex post facto.
Impeachment trial of President Andrew Johnson
At the only impeachment trial of a president in history, the Impeachment of Andrew Johnson for High Crimes and misdemeanors, (1868), Chase refused to let the Senate turn the hearings into a mockery of the law when he faced an angry mob of radical senators who wanted to limit the Chief Justice's power in the trial. Chase insisted and by cleverly out maneuvering the senators, he insured that the trial would be conducted with impartially and with the proper character of judicial process assuring the President a fair trial. The Senate knew if Chase didn't have his way, the Chief Justice could refuse to preside over the trial thereby violating the Constitution.

LII Backgrounder on Impeachment
The President, Vice President and all civil officers of the United States, shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors. U.S. Constitution, Article 2, Section 4 Introduction On September 11, 1998, Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr delivered an official report to the House Judiciary Committee detailing his investigation into the conduct of President William Jefferson Clinton. Following review, the committee may begin an impeachment inquiry, which, if carried to ultimate conclusion, may render the sitting President an ordinary citizen, and elevate the Vice-President to the Oval Office. Such action derives from Congress' Constitutional mandate and represents the most powerful check and balance granted to the Legislative Branch. As such, it is also the most difficult to implement, especially against the Presidency. To this date, only two Presidents have faced Articles of ImpeachmentAndrew Johnson in 1868 and Richard Nixon in 1974. In Johnson's case, the Senate's vote fell short of the neccessary two-thirds, while Nixon resigned before the House could vote on the Articles.

A Constitutional Primer
by Jason J. Vicente Jason J. Vicente is a recent graduate of the Boston University School of Law and is presently a law clerk at the Massachusetts Superior Court in Boston. Executive Summary As the scandal surrounding the Clinton administration grows, the possibility of impeachment looms ever larger. It is an appropriate time, therefore, to examine the function and history of the impeachment provisions of the American Constitution. The Constitution divides the impeachment power between the two houses of Congress. The House of Representatives has the "sole Power of Impeachment" while the Senate has the "sole Power to try all impeachments." That division of responsibility guards against potential abuse of the impeachment power. Only the House can initiate the impeachment process. But the Senate determines if the charges are appropriate and if the evidence warrants conviction. Over the course of American history, the House of Representatives has impeached 15 individuals, including a president, 12 judges, a senator, and a Cabinet member. The Senate has convicted 7 of the 15.

    A process that is used to charge, try, and remove public officials for misconduct while in office. The roots of impeachment date to ancient Athens. Its place in the U.S. Constitution was secured by the influence of English common law on the Framers of the Constitution. Originally, any English subject, politician, or ruler could institute impeachment charges in Parliament. By the fourteenth century, this power became the exclusive domain of the House of Commons and the House of Lords. In 1776, the American colonies included much of the English tradition in state constitutions, but the delegates of the Constitutional Convention hotly debated how best to embody it in the federal Constitution. Their most contentious question was over the offenses that should be considered impeachable. The result of the Framers' debate was a compromise: They borrowed language from English common law but adapted the grounds of impeachment. These grounds are specified in Article II, Section 4: "The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of
