On April 29, 1974, the White House released edited transcripts of tapes containing President Richard Nixon discussing matters related to Watergate to the House Judiciary Committee.  In July of that year, after an 8-0 decision from the Supreme Court compelling them to do so, the White House released all of the tapes.  Nixon resigned several weeks later.
