Clinton and nixon articles of impeachment

            The articles of impeachment held against Richard Nixon and William Clinton cannot be considered justifyably similiar. Nixon had organized a break-in into the Democratic office to uncover democratic secrets. So how can President Clinton recieving oral sex be compared to Watergate? Yes, he did commit the crime of adultry but the crime is not even in the same ball park as Nixon's and yet they seem to have several similar articles of impeachment acounted for. In article one of president Nixon's impeachment it accuses him, "[for] making false or misleading statements to delay, cover up, or conveal evidence relating to the Watergate break-ins." During Clinton's term twenty-four years later William is accountable for a similiar article of impeachment. Article three which states ".has prevented, obstructed and impeded the administration of justice." Basically, both articles declare the presidents obstruction of power and justice. The two men have both undeniably lied to the people of america, bringing embarrassment to the country. Clinton has done this in regards to his affair with Monica and Nixon had decieved Americans by stating a thorough and complete investigation had taken place. Both are noted to have encouraged potential wintesses to give false testimonys and used bribery to cover up their scandals. Clinton had helped Monica Lewinsky land a job to sway her testimony in his favor and Nixon had given Pat Gray the position of being head of the CIA after he had destroyed several of documents relating to Watergate that were in E. Howard Hunt's White House safe and had offered pardons to those who were involved by "buying their silence.".
