The End of John Bingham's Closing Argument in the Impeachment Trial . . .

of Andrew Johnson

"[P]osition, however high, patronage, however powerful, cannot be permitted to shelter crime to the peril of the Republic. It only remains for me, Senators, to thank you, as I do, for the honor you have done me by your kind attention, and to demand, in the name of the House of Representatives, and of the people of the United States, judgment against the accused for the high crimes and misdemeanors in office whereof he stands impeached, and of which before God and man he is guilty."
