Special Prosecutor Leon Jaworski said Monday that grand juries are expected to vote on indictments in January and February “in a substantial number of major involvements.” Jaworski did not say who or what the indictments would involve but it is known that several onetime top presidential aides and intimates have been the target of grand jury investigations. Meanwhile, Nixon faces a subpoena by the senate Watergate committee seeking around 50 * White House documents and 1 tapes. Aides have indicated the White House will attempt to I block any effort by the committee to gain wide access to presidential files, perhaps triggering fresh court battles. Feb. 28 Deadline The committee is due to wind up its investigation and report its findings by Feb. 28, but the deadline may have to be extended. In addition, tile house judiciary committee is studying whether there is evidence warranting impeachment action against Nixon. Chairman Peter Rodino says his committee hopes to submit its recommendation by April I.
