This May marked 40 years since the Senate Watergate hearings began and we're airing oral history interviews from the Richard Nixon Presidential Library that provide a new look into the Nixon impeachment inquiry. After a silence of four decades, key staff charged with investigating whether there were grounds to impeach the president have recorded their part in history. These interviews were conducted by the former director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library, Timothy Naftali.
We hear from Michael Conway, who served as counsel to the U.S. House Judiciary Committee during their impeachment inquiry. Mr. Conway talks about meeting Bill and Hillary Clinton and John Doar during his time at Yale Law School, and about working for Doar who served as special counsel to the judiciary committee. He also gives firsthand accounts of the committee's hearings, writing of the final report, and of the bipartisanship and secrecy among Judiciary Committee staffers.
