    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    Impeachment is off the table after Clinton turned it into a partisan circus and a matter of a blow job and not the integrity of the office. Even with the brokered deal, Nixon had more respect for the office. And clearly, Americans like liars

    Impeachment does not mean removal from office. Removal from office is a whole different trial. So, no. Nixon was free to resign, he didn't need permission. His resignation stopped the impeachment (guilt) proceedings simply because there was no public will to proceed. He was never found guilty of a thing and Ford's pardon was a blanket one.

    How about reading what YOU post. I quoted it above my response. Here you go, I quoted you again below.

    Nixon was in little to no danger of being removed from office. Heck, he may not even have been found guilty. There was no backroom deal and he wasn't "allowed to resign". He chose to resign to preserve the dignity of the office.

If she had nothing to hide, she would have been off the hook. Instead she obstructed justice by making 30,000 emails disappear. I am quite sure that if Hillary were a conservative republicans, you would be screaming from the mountain tops for her prosecution.
    If she were a Republican, you'd be rushing to deflect with all your might.

    It would have been smarter to preserve them. But there's nothing saying that they were of any substance except for conjecture by the right.

    You've got to be kidding me. Those are impeachable? After Reagan sold weapons to our enemy, I'd call that giving them aid, wouldn't you?

    The definition of "impeachable" has shifted to "anything a Democrat does."

    Nonsense. Nixon was caught dead to rights and he knew it. He was toast.
