Judge rules to unseal Nixon’s Watergate testimony

    No, the heat isn’t getting to you; this story about Watergate is current.

    Chief U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth has ruled in favor of historical associations to unseal Richard Nixon’s post-resignation Watergate testimony.

    The Washington Post reports Nixon’s 1975 testimony will be made available, though the government could appeal. Lamberth says the “undisputed historical interest” outweighs the need for secrecy.
