Nixon’s formerly Classified Grand Jury Testimony!

Okay, Yes, I was a Political Science Major at Texas A&M, and yes, stuff like this interests me.  Evidently a historian at the University of Wisconsin thought so too, because he was able to get this testimony de-classified and published online. If you want to see it here is the link:

OFFICIAL SITE OF THE US GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE

Here’s the pretext to the links to the PDFs of this testimony:

“In May 1975, the Watergate Special Prosecution Force (WSPF) decided that it was necessary to question former President Richard M. Nixon in connection with various investigations being conducted by the WSPF. Mr. Nixon was questioned over the period of two days, June 23 and June 24, 1975, and the testimony was taken as part of various investigations being conducted by the January 7, 1974, Grand Jury for the District of Columbia (the third Watergate Grand Jury). Chief Judge George Hart signed an order authorizing that the sworn deposition of Mr. Nixon be taken at the Coast Guard Station in San Mateo, California with two members of the grand jury present.”

I may be the only person interested in this, but I’ve read through the first couple of pages of Nixon’s testimony, and from my reading, he was one self-assured, self righteous, megalomaniacal son of a gun! ¬†I am probably gonna have to go check out the new movie about Hoover after reading this.
