Graham in 1998: The Day Nixon Failed to Answer the Subpoena ‘Is the Day He Was Subject to Impeachment’

‘Because he took the power from Congress over the impeachment process away from Congress, and he became the judge and jury’

GRAHAM: "Article III of impeachment against Richard Nixon, the article was based on the idea that Richard Nixon, as President, failed to comply with subpoenas of Congress. Congress was going through its oversight to provide oversight of the President. When asked for information, Richard Nixon chose not to comply and the Congress back in that time said you're taking impeachment away from us, you're becoming the judge and jury, it is not your job to tell us what we need. It is your job to comply with the things we need to provide oversight over you. The day Richard Nixon failed to answer that subpoena is the day that he was subject to impeachment because he took the power from Congress over the impeachment process away from Congress and he became the judge and jury."
