Close Up Judge Sirica
REPORTER: "Did you ever think to yourself, maybe I'm going too far, maybe I shouldn't be intruding?
"No, I never thought of that because I've always felt that because I've always felt that a judge shouldn't be like an umpire at a ball game or a referee at a fight as Justice Frankfurter said once, and incidentally in the Liddy decision which came down affirming the law court decision on George Gordon Liddy, Judge Leventhal, a great judge speaking for the majority said in that case Judge Sirica in the truest tradition of the federal judiciary in seeking the truth of this matter asked these questions as you remember I asked about 42 questions an I think that is complete vindication to me for the action I took in seeking the truth of the matter."
