The Impeachment of a President: I Remember Nixon by Harold Bell

0

Publisher’s Note:  Impeachment is the process by which a legislative body levels charges against a government official.  Impeachment does not in itself remove the official definitively from office; it is similar to an indictment in criminal law, and thus it is essentially the statement of charges against the official.

History was made in Washington, DC on November 18, 2019, just for the 3rd time in American history a sitting President of the United States of America was impeached, Donald J. Trump the 45th President. The two-acts for impeachment, Abuse of Power and Obstruction of Congress.  

I remember another article of impeachment that took place in the United States House of Representatives on October 30, 1973, against President Richard M. Nixon, the 37th President of the United States. It was written that five low-level crooks were caught breaking into the Watergate Hotel on June 17, 1972. The Democratic National Committee Head Quarters was located in the hotel in South West, Washington, DC.

WHEN A HERO WAS NOTHING BUT A SANDWICH: MEET FRANK WILLS!

American history and many others have forgotten the real hero was a man that broke the case wide open. Frank Wills was a twenty-four-year-old black security guard and just doing his job when he discovered locks at the Watergate Hotel had been tampered with and called the police. His life would never be the same.

June 17, 1973, will long be remembered in American politics. The arrest triggered the Watergate scandal which led to the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon in 1974.
