August 24, 2016: Previously classified President’s Daily Briefings (PDB) from the Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford Administrations produced by the CIA were released on Wednesday, August 24 at a symposium at the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum in Yorba Linda, California.
Director of the CIA John Brennan and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper shared their experiences and expertise on the PDBs, discussing the documents' evolution and its impact on presidential decision making.
Marking 40 years since President Nixon’s resignation, the Richard Nixon Foundation and the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum are releasing unedited June 1983 footage of the 37th President – in his own words – chronicling his final days in the White House with former White House aide Frank Gannon.
Each video in the series — entitled “A President Resigns” — is divided up by day and will be published in real time, the day on which the events happened 40 years ago. The series launches Tuesday, August 5 and will continue through Saturday, August 9.
The general public is invited to follow the story as it unfolds daily and engage on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube using the hashtag #APresidentResigns.
