Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24- THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Tuesday, June 11, 1974 Judiciary committee resists witness call WASHINGTON (AP) The House of Representatives judiciary committee, driving to complete its impeachment inquiry by July 15, is resisting Hepub'lican demands that it decide now on whether to call key Watergate witnesses. It also is refusing to get into an argument with President Nixon over its right subpoena White House tapes, ignoring his latest rebuff and making plans to issue a new subpoena later in the week. Chairman Peter Rodino i Dem.N.J.) said after a meet- ing of committee Democrats Monday that it is "important and urgent1' that the committee met its July 15 deadline for recommending to the House whether Nixon should be impeached. "We feel it has to be con- cluded." Rodino said of the in- quiry. If necessary, the House leadership wants an impeach- ment vote by the full House in late July or early August. The Democratic caucus fol- lowed a similar meeting of the Republican members, who agreed unanimously to send Rodino a letter demanding the question about witnesses be settled this week. Rodino has insisted that the presentation of all documentary evidence gathered in the inquiry be completed before con- sideration is given to calling witnesses. MEETINGS CONTINUE The presentation, which continues in closed session today, is due to be completed June" 19 or 20. When the question of wit- nesses comes up, Rodino has indicated the number the com- mittee is likely to call will be limited- Charles Colson. former White House counsel who has agreed to testify in pending Watergate trials, is the only potential witness in which the Democrats seem interested. The committee staff has been instructed to question him privately to determine what he has to say. The Republicans, in their letter, say other former White House aides such as John Dean. H. R. Haldeman and John Ehrlichman also should be called. Nixon, in rejecting the com- mittee's fourth subpoena, also rejected its contention that the power of impeachment overrides any claim he can make to executive privilege. "I cannot accept such a doc- trine." Nfxon said in a letter to Rodino. "No president could accept such a doctrine, which has never before been seriously asserted." Nixon also said the committee will not be able to conclude from his refusal to comply with the subpoenas that he is withholding incriminating inference the committee has said it is prepared to draw. REJECTS ARGUMENT "A claim of privilege which is valid under the doctrine of separation of powers and is designed to protect the principle of separation of powers must be accepted without adverse inference, or else the privilege itself is undermined and the separa- tion of powers nullified." Nixon said. In other Watergate-related developments: prosecutor Leon Jaworski and presidential lawyers asked the Supreme Court to make public the report of a grand jury that named Nixon as an unindicated co-conspirator in the Watergate cover-up. District Judge John Sirica began pre-trial hearings in the cover-up case involving seven defendants, including some former top White House officials. Defence lawyers are seeking dismissal of grand jury indictments, mainly on the grounds of pre-trial publicity. Majority Leader Thomas O'Neill (Dern.Massj Zebra informer told 'kill to prove trust' SAN FRANCISCO (AP) A police informer told the grand jury which last month indicted four young black men for the random Zebra killings that he attended meetings where he was urged "'to go out and kill some people to show I could be trusted."
