The fragile coalition of House Judiciary Committee members met again in Railsback's office that morning to search for the right language for an article of impeachment charging the President in the Watergate cover-up. The charge - Article One - would have to show exactly what Nixon had done to warrant impeachment. If direct actions could not be shown, it would note simply tha the President had "condoned" or "acquiesced" in the activities of others..
As they were talking, the House Judiciary Committee approved a second article of impeachment that charged the President with abusing his power and with repeatedly violating the constitutional rights of citizens...
The Committee was completing its task. It passed the third article of impeachment, for the President's defiance of its subpoenas...Two additional articles, accusing Nixon of illegally concealing the bombing of Cambodia and of committing tax fraud, were rejected...

August 9 - Nixon resigns
Only after the House Judiciary Committee had approved three articles of impeachment against him - including charges of obstructing justice and abusing his power - did Nixon agree to resign on August 9, 1974.

Though extracts from the tapes played a crucial part in forcing Nixon's resignation in 1974, legal action by the former president prevented all but forty hours of the tapes from being released before his death twenty years later.
