212. Nixon wasn't charged with "subverting the constitution"

Nixon was charged with abusing his power to obstruct a criminal investigation. The Constitutional process responded and worked quite well.

I gather that, as Ford was incalculably evil, you were also opposed to his support for the Equal Rights Amendment, his signing of the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty, as well as Nixon's successful negotiation of the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty and the opening to China.

To condemn a man on the occasion of his death for the fact that he did not fulfill your hope to see another man, who had set the gold standard for public disgrace and humiliation, sent to prison, makes me hope for you that you will begin enjoy the holiday season a bit more.
