New Nixon Watergate Materials To Be Released Today: What Will It Show?

39 years after the Watergate scandal erupted, bringing the downfall of President Richard Nixon, new materials are about to be released.

Under the Freedom of Information Act, grand jury testimony of President Nixon is being exposed, and the Richard Nixon Presidential Library is also releasing thousands of documents, including a 45 minute tape of Richard Nixon commenting on the scandal.

As a student of the Nixon Presidency, and the continuing fascination many scholars have with the very complex man who was our 37th President, and indeed had many outstanding achievements before being disgraced by this scandal, this release of documents should be very revealing, and could have an effect on interpretations of the Nixon Presidency!
