Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Don’t Say He Didn’t Warn Us

These are the Articles of Impeachment that were drawn up, but never used, for Richard Nixon in 1974. Nixon resigned before they could be applied, which was honestly smart of him: go read the full count. If you were going to trial on those charges and had the option to just quit the game and go home, then you would have, too.

The whole thing’s interesting, but I wanted to point out two sections. This one is from Article I:

4. Interfering or endeavouring to interfere with the conduct of investigations by the Department of Justice of the United States, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the office of Watergate Special Prosecution Force, and Congressional Committees.

And this one is from Article II:

5. In disregard of the rule of law, he knowingly misused the executive power by interfering with agencies of the executive branch, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Criminal Division, and the Office of Watergate Special Prosecution Force, of the Department of Justice, and the Central Intelligence Agency, in violation of his duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed.

Donald Trump promised to do those exact things last night at a debate, in front of cameras. The Republican candidate for president gleefully swore to commit impeachable offenses at a debate.

That was the important thing that happened last night, not the fat guy in the sweater.
