ABSTRACT
The article discusses the pardon of former U.S. president Richard M. Nixon by U.S. President Gerald Ford. The author comments that the pardon of Nixon may undermine confidence in President Ford and that criminal acts allegedly committed by Nixon related to the break-in of the Watergate Hotel should have been specified. Special prosecutor Leon Jawoski may still issue a report on the investigation.
