High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - April 30, 1974, High Point, North Carolina Nixon reverses Field on executive privilege Chrysler prices $99 two More rises expected by Dick Barnes associated press writer Washington a in a turnabout from past declarations president Nixon cited three reasons monday night Why he is setting aside the principle of executive privilege to make Public numerous transcripts of presidential conversations. Quot first in the present circumstances the House of representatives must be Able to reach an informed judgment about the presidents role in watergate a he said. Quot second i am making a major exception to the principle of confidentiality because i believe such action is now necessary to restore the principle itself by Clearing the air of the Central question that has brought such pressures upon it. Quot third in the context of the current impeachment climate i believe All the american people As Well As their representatives in Congress Are entitled to have not Only the facts but also the evidence that demonstrates those facts. I want there to be no question remaining about the fact that the president has nothing to hide in this Nixon a statement monday night on the value of the taped conversations precisely contradicted what he said last july in a letter to chairman Sam j. Ervin jr., d-., of the Senate watergate committee. This time Nixon referred to the accounts of the conversations As a the evidence which will allow this matter to be brought to a prompt but in the letter to Ervin rejecting a tapes request Nixon had said much earlier in the watergate affair Quot if the release of the tapes would Settle the Central questions at Issue in the watergate inquiries then their disclosure might serve a substantial Public interest that would have to be weighed very heavily against the negatives of disclosure. That fact is that the tapes would not finally Settle the Central Nixon said Quot unless a president can protect the privacy of the advice he gets he cannot get the advice that he needs a he had elaborated on that theme at length in past Public appearances starting almost from the time last july when the existence of a White House tape recording system first was disclosed at the Senate watergate hearings. But this time said Nixon the three factors Quot combined to persuade me that a major unprecedented exception to that principle is now Nixon yielded on tapes before.
