tapes and documents covering 64 White House con versations had been terminated aridithat Ndxon would fight the caseto the Supreme Court if necessary St Clair declined to say Tuesdaywhat Nixon would do if the Supreme rule against him saying it is rhetorical and hypothetical and I dont think we will get to that point Asked what Nixon would do if the committee issues another subpoena demanding tapes St Clair said he would respectfully decline to comp ly If the committee persisted St Clair said Then weregoing to have a confrontation because the7President is firm in his1 resolve that he already has told ftefacts A confrontation seemed likely as the Democratic majority of Judiciary Committee rushed in to secret caucus today to act on the refusal to yield additional tapes Brushing aside new assertions thatPresident Nixon has told the full Watergate story Chairman Peter W Rodino Jr DNJ said Tuesday night the committee would press an April 19 request for tapes and documents relating to its in vestigation of the scandal and the alleged coverup of White House involvement I think the committee will be adamant in seeking the material he said The last tapes confrontation came last fall when Nixon ordered thenSpecial Prosecutor Archibald Cox fired rather than give him tapes subpoenaed for the Watergate grand jury Ultimately Nixon gave up the tapes rather than risk a Supreme Court test Since then he hasgiven the prosecutors office other tapes for a total of 19 By a partyline 2018 vote the judiciary committee declared Nixon guilty of noncompliance with its subpoena for the 42 tapes and many members believe that in itself could be an impeachable offense But St Clansaid he did not think failure to supply the tapes was an impeacbable offense There was further sign of a tightening White House stance toward Watergate Tuesday when presidential counsel J Fred Buzhardt refused to answer some of the hundreds of questions asked of him by the Senate Watergate Com mittee Buzhardt invoked executive privilege national security and the attorneyclient privilege to avoid the questions However Sen Lowell P Weicker Jr D Conn who conducted the inter rogation said Buzhardt answered most of the ques tions St Clair said Nixon still is willing to consider turning over additional evidence to the House Judiciary Committee dealing with political contributions by the dairy industryand the set tlement of an antitrust suit against the I n t e r n a t i o n a 1 Telephone Telegraph Corp The committee has outstan ding requests for materials dealing with the milk and ITT cases and St Clair dif ferentiated between these and me Watergate case St Clair said Nixon had taken his Watergate stand because he believes there would be a neverending stream of re quests and because he has to preserve the presidency such demands Both the committee request and fte Jaworski subpoena cover conversations that took place between the President and some of his key White House advisers covering a period shortly before the June 17 1972 breakin at the Watergate headquarters of the Democratic National Committee to late April 1973 by which time White House involvement in the bugging ef fort had become clear Several of the conversations during that 10month period in volved Nixon and Charles W Colson then a special counsel to the President Both the com mittees staff and the pro secutors office believe those conversations may be important to their investigations John W Dean III the former White House counsel testified before the Senate Watergate committee last year that during at least one of the meetings for which tapes are sought Colson and the President discussed clemency Howard Hunt one of the seven original Watergate defendants Nixon has acknowledged feat he met often with Colson during the period but has said that theirdiscussions never touched on Watergate As far as is known the White House never has released any Watergaterelated tapes involv ing discussions between Nixon
