I swear to you, the people of America that I had nothing to do with the water-break in
Prosecution of Cox (1974)
I Archibald Cox, am the new prosecutor for the Watergate case
Five men who are linked to the president's campaign get arrested for trying to bug the office. It was immediately obvious that the burglars were connected to the president and suspicions were raised when bugs were found in the white house.
We are the 5 suspects involved in the Watergate break in, but we swear were innocent !!!
Nixon deny's knowledge of the Watergate break in or any cover up. He also denied giving up any of the tapes which made him look very suspicious.
Archibald Cox is named as justice special prosecutor for Watergate. By that time President Nixon agreed to surrender some of the tapes.
