    In watching the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump, I have been recalling the 1973 impeachment hearings of President Richard Nixon. They were held by the U.S. House Judiciary Committee, on which Rep. Jerry Waldie served. I had the honor to attend several of the hearings with Mrs. Joanne Waldie, to share with her that sobering, momentous historical occasion. She was a gracious, intelligent lady who brought out the best in everybody around her. I thank God for her.
