Fox and Friends Guest: Nixon Impeachment Had Purely Partisan Motives

Fox and Friends Guest: Nixon Impeachment Had Purely Partisan Motives November 19, 2019

Richard Nixon’s son-in-law, Edward Ridley Finch Cox, was a guest on Fox and Friends and defended Trump by trying to rewrite history and claim that there was no legitimate reason to impeach Nixon, that it was motivated by partisanship from Democrats who just wanted to take back power by bringing down a powerful president.

“He’s going to fight right through it,” Cox said of Trump. “He’s a fighter, he told me that. And he said President Nixon should have fought all the way through it but it was a different time.”

“And it was bipartisan,” Doocy stated.

“Well, not so much,” Cox replied. “Some of the congressman who were there back then say it was completely partisan on the part of the Democrats back then. They drove it because they wanted to depose a very powerful president that just had a great reelection in ’72, the first Republican landslide since the 1920s.”

“And they wanted to get back power and that’s what they did,” he added.

Imagine how morally bankrupt you have to be to think that Nixon did not deserve to be impeached. About as much as you have to be to think that Trump doesn’t, I suppose.
