Smith supports the resolution to impeach President Andrew Johnson: "The great executive Officer of the American people--the representative embodiment of national honor, of national justice, and of national power, the sworn defender of the Constitution and the executor of the laws, is solemnly charged with such contempt and disobedience of law, such disregard and violation of the provisions and limitations of the Constitution, as, within the meaning and intent of that instrument, constitute high crimes and misdemeanors. It is incumbent on us, therefore, as Representatives of the people, watchful of their interests and jealous of their honor, to consider this great question with that candor and caution, that thoroughness and impartiality, which shall insure a wise and just decision....Liberty and Justice, law and order, present peace and future security, the welfare of the nation, and the safety and glory of the Republic, all and alike require it."
