115. Read my link to the Constitutional Convention minutes....
Impeachment and removal is a political process. It has happened rarely and it turned out to be political each time.

Nixon really broke the law and should have been prosecuted AFTER he left office. But he was pardoned.

Not sure if I linked this on this thread:

It is an instructive compilation from the Constitutional Convention in 1787, of what the Founders debated and decided regarding the impeachment and removal of the President and other "officers of the United States".

I have lived through two Presidential impeachments - OK - one and a half - and they are useless and most important, they are extremely partisan.

As was the impeachment and trial of Andrew Johnson in 1868. I feel like I was there but you had better Google that one.
