[=00.12.25-ERVIN questions DEAN about the hoops DEAN has to jump through to access his WHITE HOUSE files.] Senator ERVIN. Who originally denied you the right to copy them? Mr. DEAN. Well, when I was-my resignation was requested on the 30th, I recalled a, call from my secretary who said "What do I do?" They are in here putting bands around all your safes and all your material." And I said, "Just, let them band it all." And subsequently they transferred it all down to the basement of the Executive Office Building. Senator ERVIN. Did you talk to any individuals up there about having the right of access to them and the -right to have your files copied by Xerox or otherwise? Mr. DEAN. Yes, sir. I had my counsel send a letter, and I sat down and talked with Mr. Buzhardt and Mr. Buzhardt just said, "I am sorry, I cannot do anything for you about it." Senator ERVIN. Is he, not the White House counsel now? Mr. DEAN. He is a special counsel on the Watergate. [00.13.20] Senator ERVIN. Special counsel on Watergate and Mr. Buzhardt refused to allow you, or at least, he declined your request? Mr. DEAN. To permit me to copy; yes, sir. In fact, they were permitting me earlier to make some copies. My chronofiles which I would like to have just for future use., and my secretary was stopped from making any copies. Senator ERVIN. Unless there is some objection from some member of the Committee, I will direct the, staff of the committee to communicate with the White House and ask the White House to give Mr. Dean access to his files and also the, privilege of copying them by Xerox or other means. [00.14.06-Locking up DEAN'S files from him appears to be a last-ditch WHITE HOUSE effort to maintain the COVERUP] Mr. DEAN. I think. that a number of the questions that Senator Montoya asked about, executive privilege could also be answered if I had access to some of my files on executive privilege. I might add also that my office files were not, only contained in my own personal files, but they are contained in other members Of my staff who I do -not believe their files have been bound, and I would hope to have the opportunity to Check things that I knew they were working on for me that, relate to many of these items. [00.14.37] Senator ERVIN. And without objection on the part of the committee, I would request your counsel to supply the committee a copy of the letter to the President, asking for access to these files. Mr. SHAFFER. We will do that, Mr. Chairman. Senator ERVIN. Thank you very much. Senator INOUYE. Mr. Dean, You have just indicated that one of Our colleagues, the senior Senator from Massachusetts, was placed under surveillance. Was this electronic? Mr. DEAN. Not to my knowledge. It was initially--- Senator INOUYE. Any break-ins, burglaries? Mr. DEAN. Not to my knowledge. Senator INOUYE. Were members of his staff also subjected to this? [00.15.19-DEAN talks about getting dirt on Ted KENNEDY] Mr. DEAN. I do not know. I think there was some effort to make contact or do some examination of some of the. women who were also present during the Chappaquiddick incident, and there may have been some investigations made of them also. I do not have all the, details On this, and I am afraid that others, Mr. Caulfield and Mr. Ulasewicz, can tell you most about that. I do not, know, if Mr. Hunt is going to appear, but apparently he did an investigation for Mr. Colson of Mr. Kennedy, Senator Kennedy, also. [00.15.58-INOUYE asks DEAN about HALDEMAN and EHRLICHMAN devising strategy to deal with the ERVIN COMMITTEE] Senator INOUYE. On February 10 and 11, Important meetings were held in La Costa? Mr. DEAN. February 10 and 11, correct. Senator INOUYE. February 10 and 11, which have extra significance to this committee because from your testimony, I recall that On top of the agenda was the, discussion of the makeup of this panel. Mr. DEAN. That is correct. I believe the Senator recalls my comment on that. [00.16.24] Senator INOUYE. Did the meetings go beyond just the discussion of the background of panel members; did it go into how to influence how to intimidate, threaten? Mr. DEAN. Not at that point, sir, and I do not recall that. It -was more just an assessment of who, I think the White House was looking for friends on the committee then, you know, so they might, find out what the committee was going to do, was the initial concern. [00.16.57] Senator INOUYE. I refer to an article which appeared in the Charlotte Observer, dated May 17, 1973, and it reads as follows: "High officials in the North Carolina Republican Party confirmed Wednesday that H. R. (Bob) Haldeman, at the time President Nixon's chief of staff, made two attempts to get local parry officials to 'dig up something to discredit Ervin and blast him with it.' According to the sources, Haldeman placed two phone calls to former White House aide Harry Dent and asked Dent to relay The suggestion to State Republican Chairman Frank Rouse." Who is Harry Dent?

13.09.05-DUKE-notes that Congressmen and Senators are increasingly concerned that their constituents' economic woes could be the big issue at the polls. Discussion with ROBERTS/WERTHEIMER and guest commentators of the issues of the 1982 campaign year. Discussion of cyclical patterns of Senate elections, many more DEMOCRATS are up for re-election, liberals and moderates, who are vulnerable. The Economy will be major issue, if things get worse, REPUBLICANS could lose significantly, DEMOCRATS benefit from attracting more candidates. Discussion of YOUNG REPUBLICAN CONSERVATIVES in HOUSE, many swept into office on REAGAN coattails. Difficult for REPUBLICANS to run on platform of "change" since they control Senate and White House. Discussion of SUNBELT gaining population in last Census, political shift in apportionment, role of State Legislators in adjusting Congressional Districts, efforts by parties to manipulate districts to maximize their chances. Discussion of heightened PARTISANSHIP in 1982. 13.22.42-Continued panel discussion of 1982 election prognosis. Discussion of REPUBLICAN financing of STATE LEGISLATOR campaigns, building a strong base to work from. Discussion of Computer-processed Census, which ends up pleasing no one in the political arena, one man argues that districting is an inherently political process, can't be made consensual just by use of computers. Discussion of MINORITY voters. In some states, REPUBLICANS forging strange coalitions with MINORITIES by drawing districts with majorities of "minority" voters, allows election of minority representatives in a few districts, but takes DEMOCRATIC votes out of other districts. Discussion of the role of the courts in redistricting, unpredictable outcomes. Speculation about the outcome in elections-members who have to campaign in new districts will be less compliant with REAGAN'S agenda; Liberal Northeast will feel losses, no longer dominate the legislative arena. A general Conservative trend in Congress. 13.28.38-DUKE signs off. Closing Credits/transcript order information/WETA credit/sponsor credits/PBS ID 13.30.30--OUT

[00.48.28-Sen. TALMADGE interrogates MITCHELL about the first stages of the coverup] Senator TALMADGE. Did you talk to Mr. Colson about the same time? Mr. MITCHELL. I am sure that I would because he would have, attended those meetings. Senator TALMADGE. Did you direct Robert Mardian to telephone Liddy on June 17 and ask him to try to persuade Mr. Kleindienst, then the Acting Attorney General. to arrange for Mr. McCord to be released from bail as Mr. Magruder has testified? Mr. MITCHELL. NO, sir. I am sure, I assure you, that would not be the case. There was some conversation that somebody might call up the Acting Attorney General to find out, what the hell happened but I noticed in Mr. Magruder's testimony he said that, I selected Mardian because, Mardian was, a great, friend of Liddy's and if there was anybody who were on the opposite ends of the stick it would have been Mardian and Liddy. Senator TALMADGE. -Would You say then that Mr. Magruder committed perjury before this committee? Mr. MITCHELL. I cannot, characterize anything as perjury. Senator. That does not. happen to be, a fact, what you have just said, and I have just denied it and I am sure, the other people who were present Will also deny it. Senator TALMADGE. You are a good lawyer. Mr. Mitchell, testifying under oath to a lie is commonly referred to as perjury, is it not? Mr. MITCHELL. Well, Yes; but you also have to have intents, I think, along with it under certain circumstances and I am sure, that some of these conversations have rot garbled and mixed up in the, intervening year and a half or so. I would not, want to characterize anybody---- Senator TALMADGE. What you are saying is intentions might be good but, his facts are wrong, is that correct? Mr. MITCHELL. Could very well be that the recollection was not quite accurate. There are many of other circumstances some Of which I testified to and some of which I presume I will in connection with my answers relating to Mr. Magruder's testimony where I know damn well that, he has transposed events and got them mixed into other circumstances. [00.50.31] Senator TALMADGE. Mr. Dean has testified before this coil in committee that there was a meeting on March 22, 1973. When you met with him. Mr. Haldeman and Mr. Ehrlichman and you said that there was no more money problems for Mr. Hunt. Did this meeting take place? [00.50.51] Mr. MITCHELL. The meeting had taken place, Senator, I covered this earlier this morning and it to this effect. the meeting took place prior to a meeting with the President. It was, on March 22. those participating were Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Dean, and myself. Dean's testimony Is to the effect that, Ehrlichman asked me if Hunt had been paid or if his problems had been taken care of. and I am reported by Dean to have answered yes. something. To the contrary, I deny that it ever existed as far as I am concerned because I would not, know whether Hunt's problems have been taken care of or not, Senator TALMADGE. Then, you are telling this committee Mr. Dean was in error when he made this statement? Mr. MITCHELL. This may be another one of these cases where on---- Senator- TALMADGE. Intentions were good and his facts, were wrong? [00.51.38] Mr. MITCHELL. Well, he probably got the parties mixed up. I do not recall ever having talked to John Ehrlichman about payment of money to anybody in connection with the Watergate. Senator TALMADGE. I believe you stated you later met with the President that day? Mr. MITCHELL. Yes sir. we did. Senator TALMADGE. Mr. Dean said--he testified--you talked with the President about dealing with the Ervin committee at that point, is that correct? Mr. MITCHELL. Excuse me. this is a side joke that we have, he is afraid I am going to pronounce the chairman's name wrong as I have from time to time. The word "dealing: is a pretty broad term. Actually. the subject matters were a number that did have to do with the committee and it was also, of course the basis, the subject matters were the basis for discussion that took place previously that morning among Haldeman, Ehrlichman Dean, and myself in the meeting that we Just got Out of. The real problem that was discussed -it that particular time 'Was the problem the President was having in connection with executive privilege and that was the real focal point of it and, of course. that Was right in the middle of the Gray hearings where the concentration was on the executive privilege matter. The other aspects of it were as to who was to be the liaison in connection with the White House working with this committee, up here, and I believe that Mr. Dean is correct in testimony that during the meeting the President Called Mr. Kleindienst to ask him if he had met with the chairman and the vice chairman of the committee on the Subject matter to start discussing matters of privilege and the other relationships in that area. [00.53.36] Senator TALMADGE. Did you convince the President at that time that he ought to waive executive privilege? Mr. MITCHELL. I urged it. senator TALMADGE. Why was he so insistent on what he called executive privilege, Mr. Mitchell? Mr. MITCHELL. Well of course, I can't always--I can't say always, If can't read the President's mind but I -would believe that whatever the President does in this area he does it in connection with the Presidency and not in connection with some individual. problem that he may have at a particular time.

Truman Dedicates Fordham Victory Bell President Harry S. Truman dedicates the Fordham University's new victory bell. MS Harry Truman, wearing graduation cap & gown, walking with Father Gannon, then ringing bell. LS crowd gathered in campus quad. TLS Mr. Truman receiving honorary degree of Doctor of Law, Francis Cardinal Spellman & Cardinal Bernard Griffin watching. MS President Truman speaking: "Ignorance and his handmaidens, prejudice, intolerance, suspicion of our fellow men, breed dictators. And they breed war. Civilization cannot survive an atomic war. Nothing would be left but a world reduced to rubble. Gone would be man's hopes for decency. Gone would be our hope for the greatest age in mankind, an age which you and I know can harness atomic energy for the welfare of man and not for his destruction. And so we must look to education in the long run to wipe out ignorance which threatens catastrophe. Intelligent men do not hate other men just b/c their religion may be different or b/c their habits & language may be different or b/c their national origin or color may be different. It is up to education to bring about that deeper international understanding which is so vital to world peace."

[00.26.37-THOMPSON continues to interrogate DEAN about his use of the funds entrusted to him] Mr. THOMPSON. Did I understand your testimony in response to Senator Gurney's questions that you took some money out, you don't really know how much, you put some back in and you don't really know how much? Mr. DEAN. I have. not sat down and tried to figure this out, no. Mr. THOMPSON. So you don't really know how much. Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Mr. THOMPSON. How did you know that you owed the fund $4,850? Mr. DEAN. Because I had -a check in there for that amount and I sat down and recounted it, and double checked that -before I turned the money over to my lawyer as -well. Mr. THOMPSON. Do -you still have that check incidentally? Mr. DEAN. Which check? Mr. THOMPSON. The $4,850 check placed in the safe. Mr. DEAN. No; I do not. When my lawyer and I discussed this he told me that we will have to negotiate a new check, an updated check because the old check would not pass with the old date. He said issue me a new check- and tear up the old one and get it over to me, which. I did. [00.27.38] Mr. THOMPSON. You tore up the check that you placed in the safe? Mr. DEAN. That is correct., Mr. THOMPSON,. Did you not consider this as possible evidence of your good intentions which you have relayed to us here? Mr. DEAN. Well, Mr. Thompson, if I was trying to be deceitful I could have very easily -written another check to put in but I am not trying to be deceitful, I tore up the first check and I didn't try to pretend there was--- Mr. THOMPSON. Well, you realized, I am sure you had -a problem--the reason you didn't place the money back, and in telling your attorney, was that you wanted to be completely truthful, but what you had done was realize it might be questionable; based on that statement would it not have been logical for you to have kept that check and say, yes, this is a check I placed in the safe at the very beginning? Mr. DEAN. -If you want to place something sinister on this YOU can because it was a very sort of incidental activity. Mr. Shaffer and I didn't really talk at length about it. He -wanted to get the information to the prosecutors, he said, "I will also need a new check." [00.28.42] Mr. THOMPSON. -An incidental activity at this time when you went to your attorney and explained the situation and, as you have said in your own testimony, you wanted to make sure the truth was out about this matter; you might be, questioned about it, and you wanted -to be truthful about it; you consider this an incidental matter at this time, the only evidence possibly that you had besides your own testimony that you had indeed placed your personal check in there? Mr. DEAN. I didn't feel it a major matter at that, moment I was prepared to reveal it and in fact develop it to the prosecutors. [00.29.13-DEAN testifies to the effect that he destroyed evidence that FAVORS his testimony about use of the campaign funds. THOMPSON is rather incredulous in questioning DEAN.] Mr. THOMPSON. You didn't feel it was necessary to have, any documentary evidence to support or bolster your testimony on this particular point, then? Mr. DEAN. No, I was perfectly willing to say everything I knew about the matter. Mr. THOMPSON. What about, a check stub? Mr. DEAN. I would surmise there is no check stub because I kept, the way my checkbook is composed there are no stubs to the cheeks, you slide new checks into the book and run the other, the stub section in another area of the book, and I would keep in my desk drawer a nonsequential numbered checks far down the line and when I wrote the check for cash I took one out of my desk drawer because my secretary would keep the sequential checks in her desk, and at the time, I don't recall her being in the office when I needed a check and I just wrote one out of my desk drawer. [00.30.05] Mr. THOMPSON. Are you saving you did not, stub this check at all? You did not make a stub? Mr. DEAN. No; I did not Mr. THOMPSON. I believe you previously testified that You stood ready to make, good this check at any time. Was it not necessary in keeping a record Of your account, did you consider this an obligation which you had covered, so to speak? Of course, you did not have enough money in your account to cover it. You have already testified that you only had $1,600 in your account at that time. Mr. DEAN. In my banking account, I certainly felt I had enough money to cover it through my brokerage account. Mr. THOMPSON. You had 20 something thousand dollars in your brokerage account? Mr. DEAN. I had over $20,000 in my brokerage account at that time. Mr. DASH. All right. And you took the money out on October 12, 1972? Mr. DEAN. Yes, sir. Mr. THOMPSON. And you placed the check in the trustee account when? Mr. DEAN. I do not recall the exact date the trustee account was set, UP, because as I say--- Mr. THOMPSON. In April? Mr. DEAN. Yes, in April. Mr. THOMPSON. From October 1972 to April 1973, you had this money in your stock account, and you never did take any money Out of the stock account and place it in the bank to cover this check? Mr. DEAN. That is correct, Mr. THOMPSON. When did you tear up this check? Mr. DEAN-. Shortly after my attorney told me he wanted me to issue a newer check. And he said in a manner that was without. to my knowledge, any sinister thoughts at all, that, merely issue me a new check and tear up the old check and bring the old one over here---- Mr. THOMPSON. I am not talking about sinister now. Of course, you have a right to do what you want to do with your own checks. There is nothing sinister about----- Mr. DEAN. We. had talked about this, Mr. Thompson, after the fact. I wish I had had the check. Mr. THOMPSON. I am sure you do, too. [00.32.00]

[00.40.19-there is a general hush after the conclusion of Sen. WEICKER'S reading] Senator ERVIN. Senator Baker. Senator BAKER. Mr. Chairman, on another subject, having already cited my precedent for the day and not -wanting to one-upmanship my colleagues I have something entirely different. I have before me a letter from Senator Strom Thurmond of South Carolina and if there is no objection, I would like, to include, it in the record and read it briefly. It is dated June 29, 1973. from Senator Thurmond [00.40.59-a letter to the committee by Sen. THURMOND is read by Sen. BAKER] Earlier testimony in today's hearing carried the impression that a friend of mine, Mr. Harry Dent of South Carolina, might have done something improper. I would greatly appreciate it if one of you gentlemen would. set the record straight before today's hearings are completed. The testimony that I refer to came about during questions asked by Senator Inouye regarding attempts made by Republican to "find dirt" on Senator Ervin. Mr. Dean said that Harry Dent had been contacted, but -no one stated that Mr. Dent declined. I suggest that this be brought out by questioning Dean directly or by obtaining permission to insert any of a number of news stories which appeared in the press which indicated that -Mr. Dent had declined to do any of that type research against Senator Ervin. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. [00.41.46] Senator ERVIN. If I may add to that, the, newsman who wrote, the, article informed me that he had contacted Mr. Dent and Mr. Dent had assured him that he had had nothing whatever to do with that matter. Let the reporter mark the letter with the appropriate exhibit number. Senator BAKER. Thank you very much. Mr. DEAN. Mr. Chairman, I believe I also answered no question that indicated any wrongdoing or misdoing on Mr. Dent's behalf. I was as now and I think merely asked what his role was, what he was doing. I misspoke myself when I said he' was practicing law in North Carolina, when I meant South Carolina is the only mistake. [00.42.16] Senator ERVIN. If I might, state further on that thing, I have stated What Charles P. Jonas. Jr.. had stated. and I want to add that I appreciate that very much. I had known his grandfather, Charles A. Jonas. Who Was Congressman from my district elected in 1928, and a Very fine, gentleman and also his father represented a North Carolina district which included in part my county for many years and he rendered very distinguished service to North Carolina and the Nation as a Congressman for a period of 20-odd years. [00.42.51] Senator BAKER. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Senator ERVIN. Mr. Dash. Mr. DASH. Mr. Dean, first, I think the record ought to be corrected from yesterday's testimony. I think there is an error in the record and would ask your assistance in correcting it. This has to do with your reference to Mr. Fielding's knowledge and we received a letter from Mr. Ronald B. Wertheim, counsel for Mr. Fielding. The record as it presently reads on page 2824 of yesterday's transcript has you testifying: I think 'Mr. Fielding probably had a general awareness about the specifics of the fact that I was involved in assisting with the coverup. Mr. DASH. The recollection of Mr. Wertheim, who heard your testimony, was that you in fact said: I think 'Mr. Yielding probably had a general awareness without any specifies of the fact I was involved in assisting the coverup. Which is correct? Mr. DEAN. I think the latter is correct as I recall the statement, Mr. DASH. We will see that the record is corrected to reflect that. [00.43.59-DASH questions DEAN about the September 15 meeting between DEAN and NIXON and HALDEMAN, DASH wants to dispute Sen. GURNEY'S previous contention that DEAN misconstrued NIXON'S remarks to a sinister meaning] Now, Mr. Dean, I know we, have gone through all of these hearings or meetings with the President and I am going to try to be, very brief. There is one particular meeting that I do want to go back to because I think it is a very crucial one and I just want to hit the highlights with you, and this is the meeting of 'September 15, 1972, that you had -with the President. I think it is significant. One is, as you testified frankly, was the first meeting you had with the President on a 1-to-1 basis which was your language, and two, it was the day, September 15, when the indictments came down of the first, Watergate trial which cut off the involvement at Liddy and you were called in to have, a meeting with the President. [00.44.45] Now, I think what I want to just clear up is what was a realistic version of the meeting and perhaps an unrealistic version that may have come up in questioning concerning that meeting, As I understand, that what you testified to was that when you came in, and leaving out other areas but getting to the specifics, the President told you that Bob-- that is, Bob Haldeman-- had kept him posted on how you would handle the Watergate case.

[00.30.47-MITCHELL testifies that he was ignorant of the payoff effort in the coverup] Starting at the beginning of it. I understand to be the beginning of it, which was the Kalmbach activity that, resulted from the telephone call to him on the 28th. where the meetings were held on the 29th at the hotel that I hope you have finally gotten straightened out. I didn't know that that money had been passed over by Mr. Stans, to Kalmbach until I heard his testimony or read his testimony on the subject matter. I didn't know that. I did know that, somewhere along the way, there had been money transferred to Fred LaRue out of, and I forget the testimony On it, but I am sure it, is here,. This is the amount of money that 'Mr. Stans, I think, said was turned over to LaRue by Sloan and Stans at the advice of Mardian or LaRue or something. Senator GURNEY. But you found out this later in the testimony before this committee? Mr. MITCHELL. Yes. I found it out later, as these things unfolded. Senator GURNEY. Well, I am talking about, now, in June and July, when a, lot of these money-raising raising activities and payments took place. You have no personal knowledge about that? [00.32.10] Mr. MITCHELL. I have no knowledge about the raising of them or the distribution of them or who was receiving them or how they were received, I must go back to point out that in the debriefing, Liddy said that he thought that it was right or whatever phrase he used that the committee help him get bail to get these, people out of jail. That was turned down flat cold out. [00.32.42] Senator GURNEY. Let's turn to this Executive clemency thing, which of course, is important, because the only person who can offer that is the President. There was testimony by Dean that you had instructed him to offer to McCord. What about that testimony? Mr. -MITCHELL. Well, that is, in my opinion a complete fabrication. because, the negotiations with McCord started when I -was out, entirely out of the way. I was down in Florida. And this, of course, was the thing that was handled through Caulfield. Except it, was not Mitchell. And I think if you look at Dean's total testimony. you will get to the same conclusion that I have come to, that the only discussion of Executive Executive clemency that I have ever heard about was' during some time in January, where Hunt was in a psychological state in which he made a demand on either Colson directly or- through Bittman or whatever it Was 'with respect to the Subject matter, and the word got back to me from somebody--whether it was Dean or O'Brien or whoever it was----that the only person that Hunt would take a commitment for Executive clemency from was from Colson. That, Is where it elided. [00.34.12] Senator GURNEY. I recall your testimony on that, Of course. Dean testified that he had- discussed at the time with the President, in the President's office, and also in a conversation he had with Colson. Dean, I am talking about, Colson said he discussed it with the President. Did Dean ever discuss Executive clemency with you? Mr. MITCHELL. Only to report the conversations Of the dialog that, were going on between Colson, Hunt, and Bittman, and I do not know -what or the matter was---- Senator GURNEY. At no other time? Mr. MITCHELL. At no other time, Senator GURNEY. And he has never mentioned the fact 'that he had discussion with the President about it? Mr. MITCHELL. No, sir. Senator GURNEY. Did you ever discuss it with the President? Mr. MITCHELL. Executive Clemency? Senator GURNEY. Yes. [00.35.04 Mr. MITCHELL. I certainly did not, Senator. We have never gotten into areas relating to the Watergate or the coverup or would bring any such subject matter to the floor. Senator GURNEY. Do you think it might be, reasonable to assume if the President had been discussing this with anyone that he might have touched base with you on it? Mr. MITCHELL. Well I do not know, That is quite an assumption. Of course, I was now practicing law in New York and did not see him as often as I had in the, past and talk to him as often but I would think that before he got into this area it is quite conceivable that he would because I know that in his proper analogy when it came to the point of the problem of Executive, clemency in connection with the meeting of March 22 he asked them if he would come down and talk to them about it, this is the best answer I can give you on the subject matter.

[00.25.47-MITCHELL testifying about his role in the campaign prior to his resignation as Attorney General-Sen. TALMADGE has presented documents showing MITCHELL to have had an active role in the campaign at that time] Mr. MITCHELL. Senator. I have no recollection of the first, one relating to the Republican National Committee budget. I have a vague, recollection of this one in January having to do with the telephone Plan for the Florida primary, and I am quite sure that the writing at the bottom here in connection with the comment which says, "Hold for November pending standing In the polls"--"Hold for now," I guess it is, not November--"Pending standing in polls" is not, my writing. But--- Senator TALMADGE. Mr. Chairman, I ask unanimous Consent that those documents be appropriately marked and inserted in the record at this point. Senator ERVIN. I believe the one he stated he had no recollection about will have to be identified by some other witnesses. Senator TALMADGE. Then the, ones he, identified- Senator ERVIN. The ones he identified will in be, appropriately marked as an exhibit and placed in the record as such. Mr. HUNDLEY. I think I should state with reference, to the second document that Mr. Mitchell had seen it and that he indicated that the handwriting on it, on the bottom was not his and I would note there, is no X on the, "Approved- or "Not Approved." Senator TALMADGE. I am not indicating that it was Mr. Mitchell's mark there, But it does corroborate that he was actively Involved in the, campaign- That was admitted by Mr. Mitchell, I might say. Mr. HUNDLEY. That 'Is a matter of dispute. Mr. MITCHELL. That is a matter of dispute, and I would like the chairman's indulgence for a moment to point, out that there, is no illegality about any appointee engaging the, carrying out any Presidential or political functions. Senator TALMADGE. I am not arguing that., Mr. Mitchell. You testified under oath in response, to a question of mine a moment ago that at the, request of the White House You were actively involved in the, campaign, If I can read the English language correctly, on March 14 of last year, you testified to the opposite before the Judiciary Committee. One or the other of Your Statements is in error. I am inserting them in the record only so the, public can draw their own conclusions as to which was in error. [00.29.52] Mr. MITCHELL. I dispute your statement with respect, to the, discussion before the Judiciary Committee and I would like to go back to my statement. and stand on that answer. Senator TALMADGE. That, is part, of the record and that, is the reason, Mr. Mitchell, that I inserted both of them in the record so the American people can draw their own conclusion as to which is correct,. I am not arguing with your testimony but, if I can read the English language in two different places they are the opposite of each other. You state that they aren't. If I understand English, and I learned it in a small country school, in Telfair County--- Mr. MITCHELL. So did I, Senator. a very small one. Senator TALMADGE- We both studied the same English, I assume. [00.30.38] Mr. MITCHELL. That is why I am surprised you don't agree with my interpretation. Senator TALMADGE. Let's get on to another matter. Senator ERVIN. Could I ask for his interpretation so I can understand it'? It is your position that working for a Republican candidate, for President gave you no responsibilities in respect to the Republican Party ? Mr. MITCHELL. That is it, entirely, Mr. Chairman. That is the question that I asked of Senator Kennedy. Senator ERVIN. Thank you. [00.31.10]
