Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 25, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Thurs., July 25, 1974 Nine Cover-Up Acts Listed (Continued from Page I.) cans, six were considered likely to support impeachment. Rep. O’Neill (D-Mass.), the Democratic leader in the house, predicted the committee would recommend impeachment and that the full house would vote impeachment by at least 60 votes. “And it could well be that a tidal wave would hit the house and he’d be impeached by over IOO votes,” O’Neill said. Chairman Rodino's schedule for the 38-member committee called for concluding general debate Thursday night and moving onto actual consideration of it ion of the Internal 'Service and the FBI. Both articles, ana the specific acts cited in them, follow closely the major concerns in the impeachment inquiry of Rep. Railsback (R ill.) in whose office the uncommitted members drafted their proposals for submission to the pro-impeachment group. Bothered Railsback delivered an emo Revenuei IRS — and a host of other misdeeds?” he asked. Rep. Smith (R-N.Y.) dispelled the idea he would vote for impeachment by saying the evidence was not sufficiently clear and convincing for him except on the single, narrow issue of secret bombing of Cambodia, which is not included in the proposed articles. The Republican speeches were in sharp contrast to the Chief: Internal Probe of Indicted Officers Continues An internal investigation of I challenge of tho grand jury grand jury indictments of five filed by attorneys for the indict-police officers is continuing, je d officers. The challenge even though the reason original- claims the jury was illegally im-ly cited for the investigation no paneled and asks that the in- tional speech Wednesday night in which he stopped short of saying he would vote for im- longer exists. The five were suspended indefinitely by Chief Wallace La Peters, who last week announced an investigation of his own into the charges brought by the grand jury. He said his investigation was necessary to justify the suspensions to the civil service commission.

If that happens, LaPeters said, he will be faced with deciding whether the officers should be returned to their jobs and needs his own investigation to determine the validity of th charges against them. The chief’s specification of charges came after a elOsed-door meeting Monday with the city attorney and city council. He was asked Thursday if the council instructed him to specify only the fact of the indict- dence over    any generalized^ claim of confidentiality.

Said Rodino: “A critical question this committee must decide is whether the President was deceived by his closest political associates or whether they were in fact carrv- Tuesday, however, when the specifications for the suspensions were submitted by La-_| Peters to the commission, they included no specific charges of wrongdoing. Each of the five were suspended, the specifications said, because they were indicted. Thursday, LaPeters said his investigation has not been halted. Some Doubt “There seems to be some doubt if the charges (of the office The proposed articles, still subject to refinements, were drafted after day-long negotiations between pro-impeachment Democrats and seven fence-sitting members — four Republicans and three Southern Democrats. Neither side would say publicly that the articles as presented represent an agreement, but one participant in the negotiations said he expects the seven undecided members to support at least one of them. Charges The Watergate article accuses Nixon of acting “directly and personally and through his close; subordinates and agents” to obstruct the investigation of the Watergate breakin. It lists nine specific acts it says Nixon directed to carry out the cover-up including the payment of hush money, the suppression of evidence, the misuse of the CIA and the making of “false or misleading public ing out his policies and deci- grand jury) will ever be aired,” he explained.
