MURDOCK: Trump Impeachment Articles are Weak
President Trump will become the third President in U.S. history to be impeached on Wednesday. President Nixon was going to be impeached but resigned before he way.

Deroy Murdock took a look at the articles of impeachment for Presidents Trump, Clinton, and Nixon and came to an interesting conclusion. President Trump's articles are incredibly light compared to others.

According to Murdock in Fox News:

President Trump has called his current travails “impeachment light.” The articles of impeachment on which the U.S. House of Representatives is set to vote Wednesday confirm his assessment.


First, in terms of verbosity, the three anti-Nixon articles totaled 1,558 words. The four anti-Clinton articles reached 1,515 words. And the two anti-Trump articles equal 1,321 words. By this measure, the anti-Trump articles are 15 percent skimpier than those against Nixon and 13 percent skinnier than those against Clinton.

Second, in terms of criminality, the anti-Nixon articles list actual offenses, such as illegal entry on private property, silencing witnesses and obstruction of justice.

The anti-Clinton articles also delineate violations of the law, including perjury, witness tampering, concealment of evidence and obstruction of justice.

Murdock goes on to point out the obvious, that President Trump's action are not illegal on their face and the charges the Democrats have levied are debatable at best.
