Rep. Ashbrook (R-Ohio), a leading house conservative who supports impeachment, said Wednesday that he expects the house to vote to impeach Nixon by nearly a 3-1 margin. Ashbrook said the President would go into a senate trial as an underdog and would be* “hard pressed” to find the 34 senate votes required to stay in office. House Republican Whip Leslie Arends, who is generally considered the Republican congressional leader closest to Nixon.' was asked by reporters how he would assess Nixon’s chances of avoiding impeachment. “I would not tell him it looks good,” Arends replied. “Over 75 Percent” Greeks Plan Vote on (J.
