INTRODUCTORY NOTE

This volume contains certain documents which were received

by the Committee on the Judiciary subsequent to the initial

presentation of evidentiary material by the Impeachment Inquiry

staff in May and June, 1974.

The documents are:

(1)

White House edited transcripts of Presidential

conversations of April 4, 1972, March 22, 1973, and June 23, 1972.

These transcripts were submitted to the Committee after

the initial submission and public release of White House transcripts

on April 30, 1974. The June 23, 1972 transcripts were released

in United States District Court on June 5 and 6, 1974, pursuant

to a subpoena issued to President Nixon at the request of John

Ehrlichman, a defendant in United States v.

Ehrlichman.

The notes

were furnished to the Special Prosecutor contemporaneously.

On June 24, 1974, the House Judiciary Committee issued

a subpoena to the President for "all handwritten notes of John

Ehrlichman produced by the White House on June 5 and June 6, 1974

pursuant to an order of Judge Gerhard Gesell in United States y.

Ehrlichman" and for "handwritten notes of John Ehrlichman of a

meeting on July 12, 1971 among the President, John Ehrlichman and

Robert Mardian."

A set of notes was delivered to the Committee on

July 14, 1974, together with a letter from James D. St. Clair,

Special Counsel to the President, stating that the materials

furnished were "those parts of John Ehrlichman's notes... that

were furnished to Mr. Ehrlichman pursuant to his subpoena."

The Committee also received a set of Ehrlichman notes

from the Watergate Special Prosecution Force.

Mr. St. Clair had

requested that the Special Prosecutor furnish this set of notes to

him, but through a misunderstanding, the notes were delivered to the

Committee.

A comparison of the two sets of notes revealed that those

received from the Special Prosecutor included 42 pages, covering

11 meetings, which were not among the notes received from the

White House.
