George McGovern Lies About Distancing Himself From Calls Of Nixon Impeachment

George McGovern writes an article for the Washington Post calling for the impeachment of George Bush and Dick Cheney. Within that article he claims:

After the 1972 presidential election, I stood clear of calls to impeach President Richard M. Nixon for his misconduct during the campaign. I thought that my joining the impeachment effort would be seen as an expression of personal vengeance toward the president who had defeated me.


AUTHOR: George McGovern, US Senator

QUOTATION: When people ask if the United States can afford to place on trial the president, if the system can stand impeachment, my answer is, “Can we stand anything else?”

ATTRIBUTION: Advocating impeachment of Richard M Nixon, San Francisco Examiner 29 Nov 73

And of course, McGovern cites the now discredited Lancet study:

That irresponsible venture has killed almost 4,000 Americans, left many times that number mentally or physically crippled, claimed the lives of an estimated 600,000 Iraqis (according to a careful October 2006 study from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health)
