This is an oral history interview that provides a new look into the Nixon impeachment inquiry. To mark the 40th anniversary of the Watergate break-in on June 17th, the Richard Nixon Presidential Library released interviews with key staff charged with investigating whether there were grounds to impeach President Nixon. This is the first time that many of these individuals have spoken for the record about the work and inner politics of the impeachment inquiry. A selection of these interviews have been televised for the first time on American History TV this summer.

Now we hear from Evan Davis who supervised the group of young lawyers working to determine what constituted an impeachable offense. One of the lawyers working on this question was Hillary Rodham, future first lady and Secretary of State. close
