Probes closing shop Washington up a the Senate watergate committee completes its work this month with Many unanswered questions about the mysterious $100,000 Howard Hughes contribution to president Nixon a Campaign. The a Hughes affairs was one of the most extensive and Complex of the committee year Long investigations. Lawyers and investigators spent hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars travelling to Las vegas California Florida and the Bahamas. But All they uncovered was More questions and very few answers. The investigation will not Stop when the committee goes out of business however. The watergate special prosecutors office reportedly has been receiving reports from the Senate investigators and eventually May take the matter to a grand jury. The watergate committee will be formally dissolved june 30. The Hughes investigation began with an unsubstantiated Rumor that the $100,000 was part of a a secret million Dollar Trust fund kept for Nixon in the Bank of his close Friend Charles b. A a Bebel Rebozo. Rebozo under oath categorically denied any wrongdoing in connection with his handling of the $100,000, denied he kept a secret fund for Nixon and labelled As a a ridiculous reports that some of the Money was funnelled into the financing of Nixon a san Clemente estate. Senate sources said their investigators found a memos from Hughes that he wanted to make a �?o$1 million payoff to a president of the United states in an attempt to halt nuclear testing in Nevada where he feared it would Hurt his gambling Empire. There is no evidence the payoff was made. A evidence indicating but not conclusively proving that the $100,000 was linked to the governments decision by then attorney general John n. Mitchell to drop an antitrust suit. The suit had blocked expansion of Hughes holdings in Nevada. A testimony from Lawrence m. Higby former assistant to top White House aide . Haldeman that Nixon and Haldeman once discussed a $400,000 fund controlled by Rebozo they said could be used for Legal fees for watergate defendants. The testimony could never be corroborated.

Donald and Edward Nixon his personal Secretary Rose Mary Woods and unnamed Kalmbach said Rebozo told him this. Rebozo miss Woods and the Nixon Brothers denied under oath that they received any of the Money. Rebozo claimed he kept the Money untouched in a Safe Deposit Box for three years before returning it to Hughes. A special watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox was fired by Nixon two Days after the White House was informed he was investigating the Hughes Rebozo Money transaction. A the Nixon Brothers particularly f. Donald were involved in a number of financial deals touching on the Hughes Empire. F. Donald a son Donald Nixon is executive assistant to fugitive financier Robert l. Vesco despite uncovering an extensive chronology of these ties the committee investigators found no evidence to sup port allegations the Nixon family attempted to influence the president in behalf of Hughes and Vesco interests
