Go to the background on the Watergate Special Prosecution Force records.
Go to the introduction to the records of Special Prosecutors and Independent Counsels in NARA.

We have reviewed many of the records of the Executive Assistant pertaining to Presidential tape recordings under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), and that material is available for immediate release. Some full documents and portions of other documents are exempt from release under specific FOIA exemptions. After each folder title, we note the page count and any FOIA exemptions applied to documents within that folder. If a page count does not follow a folder title, we have not yet reviewed that folder. The documents are NOT available on line.

For questions about these records or copying information, please write to the Special Access and FOIA Staff at the National Archives at College Park, Room 6350, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001, or call at (301) 837-2041.
