29 April 1974

Accade Oggi

On April 29, 1974, President Richard Nixon, in his third speech to the nation regarding the "Watergate" case, stated that 42 additional tapes requested by the Judiciary Commission would be delivered to the same the next day. They included more than 1200 pages of private speeches in which the president had personally participated between 15 September ‘72 and 27 April ‘73. The scandal dates back to 1972 involving some illegal tapes recorded at the headquarters of the Democratic Party by some men linked to the Republican Party. This led to the impeachment request for the president in office and to the following resignation of the same.
