COPLEY, Ohio — Former Rep. John Seiberling, who served on the committee that led impeachment hearings against President Richard Nixon, died Saturday. He was 89.
Seiberling died of respiratory failure at his home near Akron after a long illness, said his wife, Betty Seiberling.
In 1974, Seiberling was a member of the House Judiciary Committee as it led the impeachment hearings against Nixon, who resigned from office before a vote was taken.
After retiring from Congress in 1987, Seiberling taught at the University of Akron School of Law and directed the university’s Center for Peace Studies.
