1. Nixon Impeachment Marker
In 1967, John left the Civil Rights Division to move to New York to lead an anti-poverty program begun by Sen. Robert Kennedy in Bedford Stuyvesant, a poor neighborhood in the center of Brooklyn.

During his first years in Brooklyn, he also served as the President of the New York City Board of Education. In December 1973, John was called back to Washington to serve as the Special Counsel to the House Judiciary Committee's impeachment inquiry into the conduct of President Richard Nixon.

John's leadership of the impeachment inquiry staff led to the Judiciary Committee voting with overwhelming bipartisan majorities to recommend three articles of impeachment of President Nixon. Soon after those votes, President Nixon resigned from office.
