Nixon makes History

Cabler to air 1974 hearings

To coincide with the hoopla surrounding the Clinton crisis, the History Channel will air the House Judiciary Committee hearings on the impeachment of President Nixon.

Beginning Monday, the cable web will run the hearings — which haven’t been seen in a comprehensive programming block in almost 25 years — for five days from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and then repeat it 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Dubbed “Impeaching a President: Richard M. Nixon,” the cable net will use the original footage broadcast by CBS News.

Members of that 1974 House Judiciary committee included then Rep. Trent Lott, now Senate majority leader; Rep. William Cohen, now Secretary of Defense; as well as Hillary Rodham Clinton, who served as counsel to the Democratic members.

The Judiciary Committee voted three articles of impeachment against Nixon, but he resigned in August 1974 before an official vote by the entire House.

The History Channel is owned and operated by A&E Networks, a partnership of NBC, ABC and Hearst.
