At the least, it posed a stark contrast to Nixon's earlier claim that he had no knowledge of a cover-up by anyone at the White House-and certainly not himself-prior to March 21, 1973. And neither did it wash well against his declaration to the House impeachment group that he had given it "the full story of Watergate." As a result, there were immediate defections from even the ranks of his staunchest House defenders. Four Republicans who led Nixon's fight within the House judiciary committee said either they would vote for impeachment or were reconsidering their positions. The most significant loss was Representative Charles Wiggins, the articulate Southern California lawyer, who had attacked the impeachment case, point by point, during the committee hearings. Wiggins called for Nixon's resignation and said that if the president refused to leave office voluntarily, he would vote to impeach him for obstruction of justice. Wiggins' statement appeared to signal the end of any possibility of mustering enough votes to block impeachment by the House. Nixon acknowledged as much in his statement: �A House vote of impeachment is, as a practical matter, virtually a foregone conclusion, and ... the issue will therefore go to trial in the Senate."
