    Article II, section 2, of the Constitution states that the president "shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur."

    Nixon resigned when it became clear to him that he would be impeached, and had lost the support of key senators in his own party. By resigning, he preserved his pension. The House Judiciary committee voted nearly 2/3 to recommend his impeachment, and he knew that more incriminating evidence was contained famous White House Tapes.

    Impeachment is performed by the House with a simple majority. Conviction and removal requires 2/3 of the Senate.
    Check the Constitution yourself to see what article is invlved. It will be a worthwhile exercise for you.
