I deeply regret to say that i am not in the Confidence of he while Ervin said when asked if he knew How Nixon would answer be Haven t had a Telephone Call from Ervin said to hoped that Nix on would move to have the subpoenas killed because he Case would then be thrown to the courts eventually to he supremo court. That course prob ably would result in a Quick decision. Krvin said because the Case is a matter of interpreting Law. Not a Case of Ducler raining fact. If Nixon just ignores the subpoenas. Ervin said the com Millee would nol seek a con tempi citation but would seek a declaratory judgment against him which would in effect be a court order for Nixon to pro Duce he documents and pipe recorded conversations the Eom Millie is seeking. Ervin said he nought Nixon would obey a court order if he has any respect for Law and or another subpoena was served on Nixon tuesday by special watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox. It. Too.

Earlier. Warren said Nix on would make an appropriate response before the deadline and thai the response would be consistent with Nixon s past refusals to Lurn Over the material. Nixon based his refusal on the doctrine of spa ration of Powers because the committee is a legislative body and Cox. In taking White House evidence before a grand jury would be using the material in a judicial Branch proceeding. If Nixon moves to kill the subpoenas.
