A Federal Judge in Washington has ordered the release, 40 years after the fact, of hundreds of pages of President Nixon's testimony from 1975.
On hearing of the possibility of the release of this testimony, many people went into hiding others made immediate calls to their lawyers. Family members of deceased people who were involved in the trial are breathing a slight sigh of relief.
The people who broke into the Whitehouse were given up to 40 years in prison. Does this have anything to do with the timing of the release of the transcripts we must ask ourselves.
Some say it's worse than Wikileaks. Others say it's worse than the News of The World phone hacking scandal.
President Obama hasn't any idea why people are panicking. Obama was a child during the Watergate Scandal and is reported to have said,
"I don't know what the fuss is about. It's all water under the bridge. The American people have more important things to deal with today without dragging up old 'Deep Throat', tapes and musty old papers.
What will we gain by reading over yellowed, dusty papers from 40 years ago?"
Many people more people disagree with President Obama than agree.
The final decision on whether or not to release the transcripts is pending.
