  • Description

    Three of the seven charged with conspiracy in the watergate affair on Friday (March 1) faced press and television cameras in Washington almost immediately afterwards but said little, in accordance with Watergate Judge Sirica's instructions to avoid commenting on the matter. The indictments were handed down by the Watergate jury after several months of investigation which rocked the United States with its exposures. Among those named -- shown in this film -- were former White House Special Counsel Charles Colson, former Attorney-General John Mitchell, and former White House Chief of Staff Bob Haldeman. A secret report on President Richard Nixon's possible role in the cover-up of the Watergate scandal ??? in which the opposition Democratic Party's Headquarters at the Watergate building in Washington were found being rigged with electronic listening devices -- was also handed to Judge Sirica by the jury at the same time as the indictments.
