Date: Dec. 27, 1987
Topic/Subject: Elliot Richardson delivers the first address of
the conference in which he comments on Nixon's
personality, his qualifications for the
presidency, his political philosophy, and foreign
policy. The succeeding speaker, Hugh Sidey,
relays his recollections of Nixon followed by
Stephen Ambrose's address comparing and

speaker, Ambassador Han Xu, compares U.S.-Chinese
relations before and since Nixon's 1972 visit and

Title/Event: Hofstra University Nixon Symposium: "Appointments to
the Supreme Court" and
"Impeachment Proceedings"
File Designator/ID No./Format: MVF # 150 VCR
Names/Participants: "Appointments to the Supreme Court"-- Bernard
Jacob (Hofstra Law School professor),
presenter Joseph Calluori (attorney),
discussants Birch Bayh (attorney and former
senator from Indiana), John MacKenzie (The
New York Times), James B. McClellan
(President of the Center For Judicial
Studies). "Impeachment Proceedings"--Leon
Friedman (Hofstra Law School professor),
presenters Professor Dagmar Hamilton
(Associate Dean of the Lyndon B. Johnson
School of Public Affairs), Terry Sullivan
(Dept. of Government, UT-Austin), and
discussants John Doar (former chief counsel
to the House Judiciary Committee), Elizabeth
Holtzman (District Atty., Brooklyn, NY), and
Judge Charles Wiggins.
Date: Dec. 29, 1987
Topic/Subject: The first presenter in "Impeachment Proceedings,"
Dagmar Hamilton, distinguishes the proceedings of
the House Judiciary Committee from the
investigations by the special prosecutor and the
Committee On Presidential Campaign Activities
(Senate Watergate Committee) and gives special
attention to Article II, concerning abuse of
power, among the five articles of impeachment.

The second presenter, Terry Sullivan, evaluates
the following three characterizations about the
impeachment process using head-count data from
the majority leader's office: support for
impeachment among members of Congress built up
over time, members of Congress became concerned
about the balance of power between the executive
and legislative branches, and the system of
checks and balances worked.



Sullivan's address is followed by comments from
discussants John Doar, Elizabeth Holtzman, and
Judge Charles Wiggins. Doar discusses
considerations involved in presenting information
to the Judiciary Committee and how the committee
defined impeachable offenses. Holtzman
concentrates on the decision of the Speaker of
the House to choose the Judiciary Committee to
conduct impeachment hearings, the attitude of
committee members toward the proceedings, the
decision to televise the proceedings, the
definition of impeachment, and the committee's
failure to pass an article of impeachment on the
bombing of Cambodia.



Judge Charles Wiggins examines the historical
antecedents to the doctrine of impeachment, the
Judiciary Committee's definition of impeachment,
its rejection of a standard for abuse of power,
and evidence for articles of impeachment I
(obstruction of justice), II (abuse of power),
and III (refusal to respond to congressional
subpoenas). Questions from the audience follow
both sessions.

Date: Dec. 29, 1987
Topic/Subject: In "Watergate Re-examined" Professor Simon draws
an analogy between Watergate and the Iran-Contra
scandal. Professor Kassop relates Nixon's
dismissal of Archibald Cox to arguments for and
against Presidential removal power and explains
the constitutional significance of the removal.
Professor Kutler states his opposition to what he
considers de- emphasis of the Watergate scandal
in revisionist studies of the Nixon
administration. Discussant J. Anthony Lucas
maintains that the motive for the Watergate
burglary was to find what Larry O'Brien knew
about Howard Hughes' involvement with Nixon and
comments on Jim Hougan's book Secret Agenda. As
