22. From transcript of Jan 9/14 Christie press conference

GOV. CHRISTIE: Listen, I have absolutely nothing to hide. And I have not given any instruction to anyone yet, but my instruction to everybody will be to cooperate and answer questions.
...
So we have nothing to hide, and this administration has nothing to hide.


Nixon in The Pittsburgh Press - Mar 24, 1973

"Hugh, I have nothing to hide. The White House has nothing to hide. I repeat we have nothing to hide and you are authorized to make that statement in my name."
...
"Members of the White House staff will not appear before a committee of congress in any formal session," the President said.


Back then, with "nothing to hide" ourselves, we took our clothes off and streaked in protest. Good times.

Nixon resigned August 9, 1974, seventeen months later.

Maybe they'll be streaking in New Jersey by the spring.
