The President Texf of Committee's Impeachment Article WASHINGTON (UPI) The following is the text of the first article calling for the impeachment of President Nixon passed Saturday by the house judiciary committee: Article I In his conduct of the office of President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the office of President of the United States and, to the best of his ability, preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has prevented, obstructed, and impeded the ad- ministration of justice, in that: On June 17, 1972, and prior thereto, agents of the Commit- tee for the Re-election of the President committed unlawful entry of the headquarters Of the Democratic national commit- tee in Washington, District of Columbia, for the purpose of securing political intelligence. Subsequent thereto, Richard M. Nixon, using the powers of his high office, engaged personally and through his subordinates and agents in a course of con- duct or plan designed to delay, impede and obstruct investiga- tions of such unlawful entry; to cover up, conceal and protect those responsible and to conceal the existence and scope of other unlawful covert activities. The means used to implement this course of conduct or plan have included one or more of the following: (1) Making or causing to be made false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employes of Ihe United States. 121 Withholding relevant and material evidence or infor- mation from lawfully authorized investigative officers and employes of the United States. (3) Approving, condoning, acquiescing in, aud counseling witnesses with respect to the giving of false or misleading statements to lawfully authorized investigative officers and employes of the United States and false or misleading testimo- ny in duly instituted judicial and congressional proceedings.

Three lice in the Watergate ease through his "course of con- duct." Hoar's analysis was written hurriedly and was no! meant lo be an official commitlee document. It was intended in- stead as a check-off list for commitlee members in Salur- day's debate. Republicans argued lhal the allegations in Ihe impeach- ment articles are not backed by specific charges of wrong- doing. Among I he 50 items on Doar's list arc many now- familiar statements: in the transcripts of Nixon's Water- gate conversations, such as his remark on March 111, 1973, lhal "we should buy Ihe time" by meeting demands from K. Howard Hunt, the convicted Watergate conspirator. Other items cite such ac- tions as Ihe President's giving a government job In .leb Sluarl. Magrudcr, Hie former campaign director, who committed perjury at Ihe original Walergate trial. iiut what many commitlee members who support im- peachment found most inter- esting in Ihe document was that Hoar had pulled together what many consider lo be the repeated failures of the Pres- ident lo take steps that these members believe might rea- sonably have been taken if the President had not been part of the cover-up. Among these items were the following: The President's actions nn June his first working day in Ihe White House I'ollow- ini; the Watergate burglary. wlm.h had occurred three days before.
