[00.02.00-NPACT letters on black screen-to committee room, Sen. INOUYE reading from the WHITE HOUSE memorandum blaming DEAN for the coverup and fiasco of Watergate, the audience laughing at many of the White House's pronouncements, DEAN responds very calmly, refers to his statement, that the White House's claims are inconceivable] [00.03.38-image of page bearing Senate Resolution 60, Robert MacNEILL v.o. reads resolution-title screen "SENATE HEARINGS ON CAMPAIGN ACTIVITIES"-00.04.20-MacNEILL in studio] MacNEILL states that John DEAN, NIXON'S principal accuser, has weathered the third, the toughest and most dramatic, day of his testimony. After two days of silence, the White House issued, through Special Counsel Fred BUZHARDT, a memorandum that pinned the main blame for both WATERGATE and the COVERUP on DEAN. States that the committee treated the memo as a "cross-examination in absentia" by the President. MacNEILL states that a new version of the White House defense was revealed, in which it was claimed that Ehrlichman and Haldeman were innocent and "DEAN was the villain". MacNEILL states that before the White House memo was addressed, the bulk of the day was occupied by Sen. GURNEY'S attempts to defuse DEAN'S charges against the White House. Through all this, DEAN calmly stuck to his story. [00.05.18-LEHRER in studio] LEHRER states that it was also learned today that former CRP staffer Fred LaRUE declined an indictment and pled guilty to a count of OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE. States that there were previously at least four charges against LaRUE, making it obvious that LaRUE struck a deal with the government to reduce his liability in exchange for testimony. States that LaRUE managed the 1972 campaign in the South, pleaded guilty to Judge SIRICA, who said that LaRUE would not be sentenced until all of the pending cases are disposed of, which should be a further incentive for LaRUE to tell all he knows about the matter. States that this was the first act by the Federal prosecutors since Archibald Cox was named SPECIAL PROSECUTOR. [00.06.06-MacNEILL] MacNEILL states that one question raised in the ERVIN hearings has been "who is the enemy", which at first meant a feud between the White House and its opponents in the Senate, but today it appears that there is a factional battle in the White House, but the testimony today, [in reference to the Enemies List] harkens back to the time when the White House was all together in opposing anyone opposed to Richard NIXON. DEAN's testimony revealed that there was a bureaucratic process of nominating and selecting the official "enemies" of the White House, to make a "top Twenty" deserving of special attention. States that reporter Peter KAYE was at the hearings when the lists of "enemies" were introduced. [00.06.48]

[00.06.48-KAYE in empty hearing room, seated on table where DEAN had been sitting.] KAYE says that it's already being called "the top twenty" or "the Dean's list", referring to persons who opposed the NIXON administration, for the purpose of, quoting Charles COLSON, "how the Federal Government machinery can be used to screw our political enemies". It would work by staffers introducing names to the list, and then turning the info over to Lyn NOFZIGER, who would use the IRS and other agencies to hassle opponents. The list at first included twenty names, KAYE names some of them, describing briefly the antipathy felt by the NIXON administration to each enemy-Labor leaders, newspaper editors, the head of Common Cause, and the expansion continued to include celebrities, including the seemingly ridiculous inclusion of Joe NAMATH, KAYE speculating that perhaps the NIXON administration was irritated with him because, due to his bad knees, "he couldn't go to his right". MacNEILL gets a chuckle out of that, notes that the list mistakenly listed NAMATH as QB for the NY Giants, in spite of the football-consciousness of the NIXON administration. [00.08.41-to committee room, Sen. ERVIN standing, conferring with Sam DASH prior to start of hearing, MacNEILL v.o. gives hourly summary of the proceedings] [00.10.18-ERVIN brings committee to order] Senator ERVIN. We. have two very peculiar questions -which have been specially addressed to the committee, apparently by Mr. J. Fred Buzhardt, special counsel to the President. The first question addressed to the committee by Mr. Buzhardt is this: "Did you and your counsel develop a strategy for obtaining immunity, from prosecution? What were the elements of that strategy? On behalf of the committee I -would reply to Mr. Buzhardt that the only strategy we, developed -was to pursue the course -outlined by the act of Congress codified as sections 6002 and 6005 of title 18 of the United States Code. The second question to the committee is: "Didn't your strategy include deliberate leaks of information to the media on what you had told investigators?" Maybe this is addressed to Mr. Dean, I do not know. [Laughter.] It is probably addressed to Mr. -Dean. Mr. Dean, I will ask you these questions--well, maybe I had just better let us proceed in orderly fashion,. I am sorry I misconstrued the question. [00.12.01]

Fashion Parade. Buyers from America preview Italy's latest contributions to haute couture, a full line of new outfits for the spring and summer seasons featuring ideas and workmanship that will be reflected in tomorrow's trends. On a runway, a model holds open her jacket, flashing the audience with - what is it? - perhaps a swimsuit (?) with brassiere-like top and shorts on bottom, geometric pattern - almost like Op Art style, ahead of its time. Not on runway but just posing for camera are two young ladies wearing day dresses (I think) with fitted waist and flared skirt that falls about mid-calf; they also wear hats and short gloves. Next, two more models: one wears a long dark skirt and matching jacket/blazer, the other wears a sassy polka-dot dress with short sleeves. Then, evening gowns: one is a glittering, tightly fitted, sleeveless gown worn with a fur stole; the other is also fitted and glittering, with straps and a train of sorts - what looks like crinoline is hanging from the back of the dress, sweeping the ground. Both of these models have a feather or something on their heads. Another elegant evening gown - fitted sleeveless bodice with a skirt made of cascading ruffles or bows, worn with elbow-length gloves.

[00.12.01] Senator BAKER. Mr. Chairman, I had not seen these before this moment. I notice there is a cover letter dated June 27, 1973, which I have seen now for the first time. It says, "Pursuant to the rules of the committee, there are enclosed herewith questions which we believe would be appropriate to have asked of Mr. Dean. I will say again I have only seen these just now, but from that cover letter it would appear to me that these are questions submitted to be propounded to the witness and not to the committee. I wonder if the chairman might agree with me in view of the cover letter which has been handed me by counsel. Senator ERVIN. The only thing which misled me was the fact we had two series of questions. One of them. was numbered 1 and 2, and the second series of questions also are numbered I and 2. So I drew the inference from this that the first question and the second question were addressed to the committee. But perhaps I have misconstrued that. Senator BAKER. I think I would agree with my chairman, who has implied that it would be inappropriate for anyone to address questions to the committee, and if that is in fact the fair intendment of the letter, then I do disagree with it and I would suggest that they be disregarded If, in fact, they are, questions submitted under rule 25 of the Standing Rules of the Committee to be propounded to the witness, it would seem to me we have a different situation. Senator ERVIN. I might state these were just handed to me about 1 second before, I read them, and I drew the inference since, the questions -were separated as they were some of them were addressed to the committee rather than the witness. But perhaps I am mistaken in that, but I would say that the only strategy this committee has followed to secure immunity for any witness has been to pursue the law strictly. Senator BAKER. I think the chairman is entirely correct, And I think the committee has tracked the provisions of the statute carefully. On one occasion, at least, Mr. Chairman, I recall that, we retraced our steps for fear there might be a technical deficiency in our method of operation. The votes have been unanimous in each case, even though the statute only requires a two-thirds vote in order to request immunity. So I agree with my chairman that, the only strategy this committee has followed is to track the provisions of the available statute law in order to gain the most information we can in order to present it to the Senate. Mr. DEAN. Mr. Chairman---, Senator ERVIN. Now, yesterday the witness was asked to produce some exhibits and I just wanted to ask him if he had provided them. TESTIMONY OF JOHN DEAN III, FORMER COUNSEL TO THE PRESIDENT ACCOMPANIED BY CHARLES N. SHAFFER AND ROBERT C. McCANDLESS, COUNSELS---Resumed Mr. DEAN. 'Mr. Chairman the only thing I -wanted to say, the only involvement I had in what you are referring to is I did participate a number of years ago first in the development of that statute, and second, its drafting and its relationship with the Senate in its adoption, but I did take, at that time, in representing the Department of Justice, a far different position that the Attorney General should have the Ability to nullify any request of any committee to grant immunity to any witness, which is far different from the one Congress accepted ultimately. Mr. DASH. Now, Mr. Dean, did you bring with you this morning the exhibits that you indicated you had and the committee requested you to bring? Mr. DEAN. Yes, I did, Mr. Dash. Mr. DASH. Could you just, submit them and perhaps identify them as you submit them to the, committee? [00.15.33-DEAN introduces documents on the White House "ENEMIES LIST"] Mr. DEAN. These are from a file that is entitled "Opponents List, and Political Enemies Project." The first, document in the file, and these are not in an chronological order. is a briefing paper that was prepared for Mr. Haldeman for a meeting with the head of Internal Revenue Service. The, goal of the briefing paper which was based on material that, was provided to me by Mr. Caulfield who, in turn, got information from friends of his within the Internal Revenue Service, was to make the, IRS politically responsive to the White House, and I think that the document is self-explanatory. It is not marked other than the heading, which says "To Accomplish: Make IRS Politically Responsive." I will mark these. as I-- Mr. DASH. Well, You can mark them following your last exhibit number. Mr. DEAN. For the sake of the record right now I will call it exhibit A.

[00.22.22-DEAN continues to introduce documents about the existence of the White House ENEMIES LIST] Mr. DEAN. The next is a memorandum from a member of Mr. Colson's staff that is part, of one of many memorandums that came in. this one is dated June 28, where there was a continual updating of the opponents list. Mr. DEAN. And the last document is one relating to the McGovern campaign staff with asterisks beside certain key names that, were to be included in the opponents project also. Mr. DEAN. And that is the sum and substance of the request that I have, available that, Mr. Weicker asked me for yesterday. Mr. DASH. Mr. Dean. can we have those? They will be marked. and we 'Will make copies of them for members of the committee and circulate them to members of the, committee. Senator ERVIN. Let the reporter mark them with the appropriate numbers. I would just like to say I am sorry, I misconstrued Mr. Buzhardt's questions, they were just handed to me before I looked at them, and they were separate from the, other questions, The other questions were clearly directed to the witness and not to the, committee. The Chair now recognizes the Senator from Florida, Mr. Gurney. [00.23.52-Sen. GURNEY begins to question DEAN, clearly trying to discredit DEAN.] Senator GURNEY. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Good morning, Mr. Dean. Mr. DEAN. Good morning, Senator GURNEY. We have had a great deal of testimony, 245 pages of your statement as well as the testimony yesterday, and I must say it hard to know -where to begin in all this. I will go over some of the ground that has already been covered, in an effort perhaps to clarify and amplify as far as I am concerned. I will ask probing questions and I am sure, you recognize why tins is important. There have, been serious charges in the testimony leveled against many people, including the President, of the United States. Some of these charges, uncorroborated. Certainly the duty of this committee is to seek out the, truth, to gather all the evidence we can from every witness and especially from you who probably will be the most, important witness in these whole hearings. As a matter of fact, I think the committee, would be very derelict if it didn't get all the evidence it could. I think probably the best, place to start always is at the beginning. [00.25.13-attempt to make WATERGATE out to be the freelance doings of LIDDY] Would you say that it, is 'fair to say that Gordon Liddy's plan of bugging and electronic espionage really started out the whole, Watergate affair? Mr. DEAN. Would I say it, started off the whole Watergate affair? Senator GURNEY. Yes. Mr. DEAN. Well, as I testified I think that the--there was an atmosphere that might have been several precursors source to that plan. The plan was an accident of fate where they culminated into Mr. Liddy's specific proposal that, was presented in the Attorney General office in the two meetings which occurred in late January and early, February. Senator GURNEY. But as far as the Watergate break-in itself is concerned it, really stemmed from Mr. Liddy's plan of bugging and electronic espionage, did it, not? Mr. DEAN. The, specific plan to enter the Watergate would have begun with the plan an that Mr. Liddy developed, Senator GURNEY. 'Now, who recommended Mr. Liddy to the Committee To Re-Elect the President.? [00.26.19-attempting to imply a huge DEAN-led conspiracy?] Mr. DEAN. I passed on a recommendation that I had received from Mr. Krogh to Mr. Mitchell and he in turn endorsed that recommendation and sent, him over to the Re-Election Committee. Senator GURNEY. In other words, you recommended Mr. Liddy to the, Committee To Re-Elect the President? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Senator GURNEY. Did you interview Mr. Liddy after Krogh recommended him to you? Mr. DEAN. Not, to my recollection, no. I was present when he was interviewed by Mr. Mitchell and again when he was interviewed by Mr. Magruder. Senator GURNEY. Did you ask any questions about his qualifications at that time or did Mr. Liddy just simply answer questions? Mr. DEAN. I asked Mr. Krogh about his qualifications at that, time when he first mentioned him to me. And they asked questions during those interviews, yes. Senator GURNEY. Did you ever ask him what he had been doing for Mr. Krogh? Mr. DEAN. No, I did not. Senator GURNEY. Or Mr. Hunt? Mr. DEAN. No, I did not. [00.27.24]

Puttering around the kitchen at breakfast in bathrobe or long nightgown. She pulls on a skirt while a guest is visiting (seems odd). She and guest, wearing stylish casual daywear, drink tea together. Housewife sits and drinks cocktail in patterned dress with what looks like a large long ribbon hanging off of it. Chicken roasts on a spit in fireplace (?!).

In terrain inaccessible to any other means to transport, the whirlybird ferries in troops and light equipment, then hovers low to haul jeeps out of mud holes." Helicopters - these have two rotors, one on each end of what looks like a Siamese twin helicopter - fly over rugged land, drop off troops. They show other useful abilities: dropping off a jeep; pulling a jeep out of the mud where it was stuck. Man with Red Cross armband climbs rope ladder to copter.

[00.27.24-Sen. GURNEY continues his pro-WHITE HOUSE questioning, trying to imply that DEAN brought LIDDY to the CRP and orchestrated his spying activities] Senator GURNEY. Would that not be important in finding out his qualifications, his previous employment? Mr. DEAN. Well, I was told, for example, when I met him--when I talked to Mr. Krogh about him, I can recall Mr. Krogh very specifically telling me that he had written some of the best legal memorandums that he had run across in a long time. He explained that Gordon had taken some rather complex subjects and analyzed them in a very precise way. One of these -memoranda had gone in to the President and the President had complimented Mr. Liddy through Mr. Krogh on the quality of the document that he had prepared. Senator GURNEY. Was it understood that part of his duties -would be in charge of security or things like that? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Senator GURNEY. Well, did you ask any questions of him as to what he had had been doing in the area of security? Mr. DEAN. I was told that he had an FBI, Treasury Department, law enforcement background. There, was not a, great focus on that at that time. I know Mr. Krogh had worked in the past before, I came to the 'White House and partially after I was still at the White House with the demonstrator problem. Mr. Krogh was very knowledgeable in the area, and -when he told me that he thought Mr. Liddy had these qualifications I thought that Mr. Krogh's judgment was good and in fact, it was partially Mr. Krogh's working with me from my position at the Department of Justice that resulted in my coming into the White House. Senator GURNEY. You never did go into -what he had been doing with Krogh and Hunt? Mr. DEAN. No, I did not. [00.29.02-DEAN'S role in planning the WATERGATE-GURNEY wants to make DEAN'S role seem significant] Senator GURNEY. The January 27 meeting occurred and as I recall, you testified that the original plan--and I do not know what the word was that you used to describe it, but--- Mr. DEAN. I think I called it a mission impossible plan. Senator GURNEY. I think that is probably a, good description. Did you ever talk to Mr. Mitchell or Mr. Magruder after this horrendous plan, about whether Liddy really was competent, to stay on and work for the, Committee, To Re-Elect the. President? Mr. DEAN. As I recall, the only conversation I had was a very brief conversation. Mr. Liddy was taking the charts off the easel and they were preparing to leave the office when I paused in front of Mr. Mitchell's desk and he told me that, this was certainly out, of the question I do not, think anyone knew that a plan of that dimension was going to be presented at that time. Senator GURNEY. Well, did it worry you that this man came up with kidnapping prostitution, mugging, and all the rest, of it? Mr. DEAN. Yes, sir, it did. Senator GURNEY. But you never really discussed it with Mitchell and Magruder as to his capability, Liddy's capability of staying on at the job? [00.30.20] Mr. DEAN. Well, sir, you would have had to have been there to believe it and I might say that, it was so far out that there -was no hope, in my mind that anyone was ever going to approve any plan like this. So I just assumed that it was going to die, a, natural death. Senator GURNEY. Now we come, to the second meeting that occurred on February 1. My recollection is that you came in a little later this day. Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Senator GURNEY. My recollection also is that you testified that you -were, again disturbed. My Very disturbed at what he was proposing. Is that true? Mr. DEAN. That is correct and I was injecting myself into the meeting in an effort to terminate the meeting, which I did. Senator GURNEY. Well, did you have any discussion after the meeting with Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Magruder about his continuing? Mr. DEAN. I had a direct discussion with Mr. Liddy at, that time. I might add. after the first meeting I had told Mr. Liddy he should destroy the charts. After the second meeting, as we were leaving the office, I told him that I would not discuss this with him any further. I indicated to him that it still was not what was necessary and it was a rather brief discussion, I must say I felt very sorry for Gordon Liddy during much of this because of the fact that he had received no guidance from anybody that, I could tell-certainly none from me--as to what was expected of him. It is not my nature to be hard on somebody. Rather I was trying to tell him that I felt this was not what was contemplated. [00.32.09]

[00.32.09-GURNEY questions DEAN, clearly trying to make DEAN'S role in planning the Watergate seem very significant and central] Senator GURNEY. My reaction was that you testified that you told him that, he was never to discuss this thing again with you, is that correct? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Senator GURNEY. You told him that if any plan was approved like this that you did not want, to know about., it. Mr. DEAN. That is correct,. Senator GURNEY. At this particular time, Mr. Dean, were you not the counsel for the President? Was that not, your job? Mr. DEAN. That was my title and that was my job. Senator GURNEY. You were not counsel for Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Magruder, were you? Mr. DEAN. No, I was not. 'Senator GURNEY. Why did you not go back to the President and tell him about, this hair-raising scheme? Mr. DEAN. Well, I did go back. But I did not have access to the President as I think I explained. I went to Mr. Haldeman. Senator GURNEY. Did you try to gain access to the President ? [00.32.59] Mr. DEAN. Senator, I did not try-- I had never been in to the President or called by the President before. My reporting channel was through Mr. Haldeman and I went back and told what I thought was the proper reporting channel. I told him what I had seen, told him my reaction to it, told him that I thought it was unwise, unnecessary, and Mr. Haldeman agreed with me. Senator GURNEY. Did you ever discuss after this meeting with Mr. Mitchell and Mr. Magruder, whether this plan was going to be implemented or whatever happened to it? [00.33.35-a point which the White House disputes DEAN'S testimony] Mr. DEAN. I never heard about the plan again until, as I have testified, Mr. Liddy came into my office some time in February or March, I do not know the precise date and told me that he could not get his plan approved. I reminded him that I was not going to talk with him about it, and he said that he understood and he did not talk about it. And we went on to whatever our business was that day on some other election matter. Senator GURNEY. When was this? Mr. DEAN. I believe it was February, some time in February or March I am not sure of the date. Senator GURNEY. Did you ever report that to the President? Mr. DEAN. NO, I didn't,, sir. [00.34.22-Sen. GURNEY takes another opportunity to take potshots at DEAN'S professional ethics concerns] Senator GURNEY. Let's go now to the break-in at Watergate. But before we do, let's go back and clear up some testimony of yesterday. I have never been entirely clear on this law firm incident. I came in the middle of Senator Talmadge's questioning yesterday. could you go over that? What exactly happened? You were representing a law firm in connection with some television application-is that it? Mr. DEAN. No, sir, I read into the record Yesterday a letter, I don't know if the Senator has had a chance to see the letter. Senator GURNEY. I haven't had a chance to see, it. Mr. DEAN. I might read it to you. Senator GURNEY. No, I don It think you need to read it if you just summarize quickly what happened. Mr. DEAN. All right, I was in a communications law firm and doing very little communications work. I had some connection with summarizing findings of fact and things of that nature that were before the FCC, but I could not, term myself a communications lawyer in any respect. I had been at the, firm a very short while. I was not happy at the firm and was contemplating leaving the firm. One of the men who was at the firm was not a lawyer but an in-house representative of the senior partners in the firm, who had television interests around the, country as a result of their processing applications. This man came to me and began to discuss, he said, John, you are leaving, are you interested in investing any money in a television station? I said, yes, I might be, let's explore it. We had some preliminary discussions about it, with the lawyers who he had selected to represent his application, a, man by the name of Earl Stanley, who is a senior member of the communications bar, and I think a very well respected member of the bar. At that time, I raised with him, was there any conflict for me to become involved in that while, I was still at the firm. He indicated to me so long as I was out of the firm by the time the application was actually filed, which would have taken mechanically months to prepare, and Mr. Stanley and Mr. Fellows, the, man I was referring to in the, firm, were going to prepare the application. I had some--I had accumulated some papers on the matter in my desk and apparently, one night, one of the partners was looking for some other unrelated matters and came across, this. [00.37.00]
