Judge orders Nixon grand jury testimony unsealed

A U.S. District Judge ordered the government to release the transcripts of the grand jury testimony made by Richard Nixon on Watergate.

“The special circumstances presented here – namely, undisputed historical interest in the requested records – far outweigh the need to maintain the secrecy of the records,” wrote the judge. “The Court is confident that disclosure will greatly benefit the public and its understanding of Watergate without compromising the tradition and objectives of grand jury secrecy.”

Once again, the government threatens to reveal the truth and once again, nothing has happened.
