Hellcat-

I wouldn't say that Mr.Nixon invented impeachment, as is said in the article. He was never actually impeached, only threatened with it. Apparently, Andrew Johnson gets no respect, though actually, I would say that the Founding Fathers invented impeachment.

Being impeached is very different from being convicted by the Senate and removed from office, though in the case of Mr. Johnson, it was a very close run thing.
