Next . . . An oral history interview that provides a new look into the Nixon impeachment inquiry. With the 40th anniversary of the Watergate break-in approaching on June 17th, the Richard Nixon Presidential Library released interviews with key staff charged with investigating whether there were grounds to impeach President Nixon. A selection of these interviews will be televised for the first time on American History TV this June. Over the next hour, we’ll hear from Francis O’Brien, chief of staff to Congressman Peter Rodino, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee in 1974. Mr. O’Brien describes the work and internal politics of the Judiciary committee impeachment staff, including the surprising search for a Special Counsel to lead the inquiry. close
