U.S vs. Nixon was not an impeachment case.  It was a separation of powers case in which the SCOTUS ruled unanimously 1) that the president was not the final arbiter on whether he had to respond to a Congressional subpoena, and 2) that he in fact had to respond.

Yes, but that ruling occurred in the context of an ongoing impeachment investigation.

Yes, but they were not ruling on any substantive issue on impeachment but rather on whether the executive could avoid supervision, hence my comparison to the UK decision.
