Impeachable Offense: "I Don't Care About My Dignity"

Balkinization: "I Don't Care About My Dignity"
by Gerard Magliocca (Indiana University Law School)

Articles of impeachment vs. Andrew Johnson
Article Ten concluded with the following:
Which said utterances, declarations, threats and harangues, highly censurable in any, are peculiarly indecent and unbecoming in the Chief Magistrate of the United States, by means whereof the said Andrew Johnson has brought the high office of the President of the United States into contempt, ridicule and disgrace, to the great scandal of all good citizens, whereby said Andrew Johnson, President of the United States, did commit, and was then and there guilty of a high misdemeanor in office.
