Nixon Blocks Disclosure

April 22, 1987|United Press International

WASHINGTON — Former President Richard M. Nixon has temporarily blocked the scheduled May 4 public release of about 5% of the 1.5 million pages of his private presidential papers, the National Archives said today.

"We have received a large list of objections--specific objections to specific documents--from Richard Nixon's lawyer," said Archives spokeswoman Jill Brett. "Under the regulations, these documents must be withdrawn and reviewed according to their claim." She said the Archives received "a whole panoply of objections relating to about 5% of the entire collection" of Nixon's most sensitive presidential papers.
