Ford Testimony Released on Assassination Attempt

A federal judge allowed the released of video testimony by President Gerald Ford on the assassination attempt by Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme in 1975.

Sacramento Bee: "The 20 minutes of testimony, which Ford gave in room 345 of the Old Executive Office Building adjacent to the White House on Nov. 1, 1975, was conducted at the request of Sacramento defense attorney John Virga and played for jurors during Fromme's trial. The tape, which includes several minutes of audio discussion among lawyers and the judge before and after Ford's testimony, was later sealed and has been largely forgotten and removed from public view in the years since."
