Terrorist raid into Israel ends in seven deaths impeachment process drags by Walter r. Mears associated press writer Washington a neither Congress nor the White House appears to be in any Rush for judgment on the impeachment of president Nixon and each blames the other for delaying the process. So while a congressional committee investigates the issues there is cloakroom discussion and speculation about the politics of the Case and the timetable for action. In an election year politics and timing Are intertwined. It is evident that a Senate impeachment trial if it comes to that will coincide with the tall congressional election Campaign one White House official contended that is what Nixon s critics have wanted All along to have the watergate Issue Peak while voters Are deciding Between Republican and democratic candidates in the nov. 5 elections. The counter argument in Congress is that the White House is stalling the impeachment proceedings by withholding evidence and by pressing the House judiciary committee to summon witnesses for Public testimony. There is congressional speculation that Nixon strategists might seek to delay any Senate vote until Atter the elections on the theory that freed of election pressures some republicans might More easily be won to the president s defense. A White House official denied there is any such plan saying the president simply wants to make his Case and put it to a House such a vote is unlikely before August and if a House majority then favored impeachment the Case would go to the Senate for a trial that might Start shortly after labor Day. A Senate source said that on such a timetable a verdict could be rendered during the current session of Congress although probably not before the elections. It would take a two thirds vote in the Senate to convict and thus oust him. Of a Post election vote might work to the presidents advantage a delay into 1975 Likely would Hurt his cause since democrats Are expected to increase their Senate majority.
