NUMBER:893
AUTHOR:Richard Milhous Nixon (1913–94)
QUOTATION:The power of impeachment is, of course, solely entrusted by the Constitution to the House of Representatives. However, the Executive Branch is clearly obligated, both by precedent and by the necessity of the House of Representatives having all of the facts before reaching its decision, to supply relevant information to the Legislative Branch, as it does in aid of other inquiries being conducted by committees of the Congress, to the extent compatible with the public interest.
ATTRIBUTION:President RICHARD M. NIXON, letter to the Hon. Emanuel Cellar, chairman of the House Committee on the Judiciary, May 19, 1970.—Public Papers of the Presidents of the United States: Richard Nixon, 1970, p. 441.

  This letter concerned H. Res. 920, a resolution of impeachment of Justice William O. Douglas.
SUBJECTS:Impeachment
