ON PREVIEW CASSETTE # 991500A CU of accident report being written by a Skokie policeman, CU's of seatbelts being fastened, CU of depressed accelerators, and CU's of turn signals are just a few of the obvious shots in this defensive driving film. There are also a few staged accidents (the impact is implied but presented from both subjective and objective angles), accident recreations via Matchbox cars, hot-rodding '65 Mustangs cutting people off, and literally tons of hood-mounted camera shots driving aimlessly and slowly through suburban and town traffic on nice sunny days. The voiceover narration is fairly typical: male, stern, and bluntly informative.

[00.49.41-THOMPSON interrogating MITCHELL about the payoffs to the DEFENDANTS. DEAN has testified that MITCHELL was a central figure in the decision to pay off the defendants to keep silent] Mr. THOMPSON. I am not, going to pursue that any further. Getting back- to your knowledge of the money, perhaps my question should have been, "When -was the first time that you heard of the need for the payment of money," and I ask it because of this: Dean testified that the first time. he heard any discussions of the, need for money. money to take care of those who were involved in the break-in was in a, meeting which occurred on either June 23. Saturday, or June 24 attended by Dean, Mardian, LaRue, and yourself. Mr. MITCHELL. that is quite possible because, as I recall the conversation of Mr. Liddy that he had -with Mr. Mardian and LaRue, was hopeful that these people that he at that time, of course, was not in jail, not suspect, and was still working for the committee, I do know whether he was suspect or not, in any event, he was still working for the committee until the 28th of June, he was--he talked to Mardian and Liddy about the hope that somebody could provide, for these five people who had been arrested, and the thought was that that the committee should do it and, of course., that was immediately off, the committee would not, do it and, of course, obviously do it under the existing statutes. Now, what developed out of that with respect to Mr. Dean's concept of it or what he heard about whether he heard that story or what I do not know but that is the first point in time at which the subject matter was ever discussed. [00.51.24] Mr. THOMPSON. The points that concerned you -were, the fact, that early on the discussions about, the money were taking place, or the need for money, and also Mr. Magruder's testimony I believe he testified, I think first, in June, and then again maybe August and then again in September before, the grand jury, and the point was that, during this Period of time you were having to make your decision as to how you were going to play this thing'. I understand that your testimony is that you were making your decision on the basis of what you had understood Liddy to say plus some points of corroboration from Mr. Dean. Mr. MITCHELL. That was the basis for the White House activities, that is absolutely correct. [00.52.12] Mr. THOMPSON. Without getting into a great deal more detail, Mr. Mitchell, besides the Diem cables can you answer any further point of verification that Mr. Dean gave you concerning these matters we mentioned, the Ellsberg psychiatrist, the Dita Beard situation, any of those matters? Mr. MITCHELL. Well, of course, there was the purported fire bombing of the Brookings Institution which had been discussed and so forth, I have already--- Mr. THOMPSON. Did Dean tell you that was seriously proposed at one time? Mr. MITCHELL. Yes I believe that I took it as a very serious proposal because of the fact that he flew across the, country in order to get it turned off. Mr. THOMPSON. For that particular reason as you understood it? Mr. MITCHELL. Pardon? Mr. THOMPSON. He made this Is trip for that particular reason? [00.53. Mr. MITCHELL. MITCHELL That is the way he so testified and I believe advised it at, that particular time because as you recall, it was tied into the Mardian trip to the west coast also, And also. it seems to me, that I have a pretty clear recollection there was general discussion of, as I say, the extracurricular wiretapping activities, [00.53.31] Mr. THOMPSON. Did you consider these matters national Security matters; at the time you were considering them? Mr. MITCHELL. Well, since I didn't really know about, them I could not make an assessment about them. Mr. THOMPSON. In your mind as you were seeking to Justify your position, if you were when these things were realized by you. did you consider them to be matters of national security no one had any right to know. that they should be covered up in effect, or were these just political decisions?

[00.25.40-GURNEY gives MITCHELL a chance to put blame on DEAN for the coverup] Senator GURNEY. Dean testified before the committee that when he got into this whole Watergate affair, and you will recall that he was Out in the Philippine Islands, I think and returning---- Mr. MITCHELL. Yes. Senator GURNEY. That this occurred--that the coverup had already begun. My recollection of the first important meeting that he had with anybody was this is June 19 meeting. Mr. MITCHELL. No, sir. Senator GURNEY. Was there any discussion of the coverup at this meeting? Mr. MITCHELL. -No, sir; Senator, let me go back and refresh your recollection of Mr. Dean's testimony and I am sure these gentlemen here can correct me if I am wrong on the general subject matter. Mr. Dean said that by the time that he came to my apartment to the June 19 meeting, the coverup had already begun, because, we had--and I am just, quoting Mr. Dean--he had met with Liddy, he had met, with Magruder, he ad met with Strachan and been advised that they had destroyed documents. He said he had met with Ehrlichman and Colson and that they were trying to get Hunt out of the country. I am not vouching for these as facts. I am just telling you what Dean said that he did that, day, in which he came to the conclusion that the coverup had already started by the time he, got to the meeting of the 19th. He also testified that he did not discuss any of those subject matters with us at the meeting in my apartment on the 19th. [00.27.11] Senator GURNEY. Were any specific, instructions given at that meeting to anybody? Mr. MITCHELL. go; because I don't, think we had anything to provide specific instructions for. I think what we were really looking at was what was the PR aspects of it, where were we going to be hit next with another broadside, and how we were going to respond to it. And of course, you did that from day to day as the UPI and the AP carried the stories. Senator GURNEY. Incidentally, why do you think Dean was there at the meeting? Mr. MITCHELL. I don't know. In trying to reconstruct that in my mind--because I had completely forgotten about the meeting until the testimony--I would have believed that somebody-it was not me, but it was probably that Bob Mardian, or it could have. been Fred LaRue, we were flying in back in an aircraft that needed an interim stop, as I recall--probably called ahead to the office and said, get so-and-so so we, can find out what is going on in connection with this. [00.28.24] Senator GURNEY. Turning to the coverup payments now, I think we have already discussed this business about the supposed meeting where you thought that somebody ought to get in touch with Kalmbach to raise the money for the coverup, and you have denied that this took place. Is that correct? Mr. MITCHELL. I specifically deny this with respect to the so-called meeting of June 28, in which Dean puts it in -a sequence, on June 28, where the CIA thing flops and then there is a meeting with Mardian, LaRue, Dean, and myself, and I say to Dean, you go get somebody the White House to call Kalmbach. I tell you that that meeting didn't happen, because I was in New York. [00.29.20] Senator GURNEY. Was there any other meeting where that, occurred, or something like that occurred? Mr. MITCHELL. NO; there has been a question here today as to whether or not I had a meeting on January 19, -which would have been the eve of the inauguration, with Dean and Kalmbach in which Kalmbach was asked to re-enter the fundraising activities. I have recollection of that whatsoever. And as I said before, the way that Kalmbach excited from fundraising activities due to his notoriety, I would have found it very difficult for me to suggest that he, got back into it. Senator GURNEY. Do you have any personal knowledge about the coverup money, how it was raised, by whom, who paid it? Mr. MITCHELL. I have--well, let me see, if I can answer all of your questions. First, of all. I have never met with any of the defendants, I have never talked to any of them, I have never talked to any of their lawyers except, Maroulis on that occasion that I have, mentioned. I have never handled any negotiations in connection with it. I have never even seen until I have seen the exhibits here and letters that letter or letters-- that were written by Hunt. [00.30.47]

[00.47.56-THOMPSON takes one last stab at questioning DEAN, seemingly trying to suggest that DEAN attempted to rip off the CRP and skip town to avoid being called to account for the coverup] Mr. THOMPSON. What were your campaign duties, Mr. Dean? Mr. DEAN. I don't know what you mean by campaign duties. Mr. THOMPSON. You were counselor to the. President, and I believe you mentioned in the past, that Mr. Haldeman in effect realized what your duties would be during the campaign. I assumed you would have slightly different role, perhaps, during a campaign than you would in a nonpolitical year? [00.48.20] Mr. DEAN. That is right. I certainly was not involved in any political aspects. I would say the basic, thing, a number of filings required by the President required research of the State laws to define and describe, exactly what the President himself would have to sign as a candidate for the Office of President of the United States. These could not be handled by the reelection committee. They would require a notarized Presidential signature. The President -was traveling around the country from time to time, we would have to send them with a military aide, We would have, to be not only aware of what the 50 States required we would have to be aware Of when they required it. That was probably the most consuming of the campaign activities. [00.49.05] I would say that my largest campaign activity was the coverup of the Watergate. Mr. THOMPSON. Let, me ask you if this would. be correct and I am reading from page, 38 of the transcript Of our executive session. [READING] My principal area of concern would be that the white. House itself would stay in full compliance with election laws. And I can say from that point on, we didn't miss one thing regarding the election laws themselves which was a rather voluminous and time-consuming task because as the candidate the President had a lot of filings that required his signature itself and were handled in the White House. Mr. DEAN. I think that is saying in another way what I have just said. Mr. THOMPSON. You left on October what 13th? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Mr. THOMPSON. Well, several weeks would have had you returning after the election Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Mr. THOMPSON. Would not that have presented a little problem for you considering there was a required filing on the 15th, 6 days next Preceding the election? Mr. DEAN. At, that time. we had a routine system set, up for filing. Mr. Wilson had devised a calendar with all the check dates. There was not a daily filing period. I can't recall any particular filing period in that time, there may have been, I don't have the calendar in front of me. These would be forwarded by that time routinely to the President for signature. He was used to them by that time. He would sign them, they would come back notarized and he. would forward them back to the appropriate State requiring it. In fact, I would say the weeks, preceding the, election -were some, of the slowest weeks during my time at the White House. [00.50.47] Mr. THOMPSON. Was It Slow in terms of campaign contributions that were coming in? Mr. DEAN. We didn't receive campaign contributions at the White House. Mr. THOMPSON. Were you ever called upon to interpret the propriety of accepting such campaign contributions, foreign contributions, anything of that nature? Mr. DEAN. Yes; that periodically, came up, yes, indeed. [00.51.06-THOMPSON questions DEAN, trying to insinuate that DEAN was preparing to skip town in October of 1972] Mr. THOMPSON. But you were going to go on a honeymoon, from which you would not return, if you had your preference, until after the election? Mr. DEAN. Let me explain when I went to Florida, what the situation is in Florida. There are two villas that are set aside, for White House staff. I had to retain that privately rather than take it at Government expense, obviously, being on a honeymoon. That runs $100 a day. I also said that because when I am in Florida, you have the entire signal telephone system. As I think my -wife can attest, while I was at the White House, there was virtually no time, that I was out of contact with the remainder of the staff at any time. And as you well know, you can conduct business by telephone and get staff doing things as easily as you being present in the office, and that is how, often, you operate in the office. I also had a very trusted deputy who could handle things in my absence and if he had a judgment he wanted my attention drawn to, I certainly was available for him to call and reflect on that judgment. Mr. THOMPSON. So then you were planning to be gone for several weeks? Mr. DEAN. I had hoped to. That had been our intention; yes. [00.52.23] Mr. THOMPSON. That -was your intention. Did you know anyone when you were working at the White House, have contact with any one whose first name is Jane? Mr. Did I know anybody at the White House by the name of Jane? Mr. THOMPSON. Yes. Mr. DEAN. I know several Mr. THOMPSON. Start closest to you, if you would. Mr. DEAN. Yes; I have a secretary by the name of Jane Thomas. Mr. THOMPSON. That is the name, I think, that I am interested in. If I am not, we will go back to it. Do you have a travel office, or did you have a travel office, at the White House that sometimes made accommodations for you for the trips that you would take? Mr. DEAN. Yes; I generally had my secretary make travel accommodations through the travel office. Mr. THOMPSON. Do you recall whether or not -you had Jane Thomas make travel accommodations for this particular honeymoon trip? Mr. DEAN. I do not have the foggiest recollection. [00.53.20]

[00.59.25-BAKER interrogates DEAN about DEAN'S March 21, 1973 meeting with NIXON, BAKER trying to get an assessment of how NIXON reacted to the facts DEAN told him-at issue is whether this was NIXON'S first information on the WATERGATE COVERUP] Now, at any one of those points, which -were the principal points that were in my mind at that point there may have been varying degrees of elaboration on, but I cannot give the degree of elaboration at this point, but I can recall clearly the principal points I raised with him. Senator BAKER. The record should show -that you are testifying to, at my request, a general outline of the conversation and this is not meant to omit other detail or statements that have been included in your previous testimony. [01.00.03-BAKER wants to know about NIXON'S reaction to DEAN'S "CANCER ON THE PRESIDENCY" speech] I would like to reach the, point when you are, ready when you can tell us in whatever detail you can -what, the President said to You Or what questions he asked. You indicated, I believe., that toward the end, the President did ask some questions Mr. DEAN. Yes; he did. Senator BAKER. You do not have a perfect memory of that, but would you--- Mr. DEAN. The questions -were running along a tenor--there were not many--that indicated that the President still did not realize the implications of this matter, and the one that really stuck my mind is when he suggested to me that maybe some sort of presentation or briefing ought to be provided to the Cabinet. And I believe he also suggested that this be explained to the leadership, Senator BAKER. You mean to the congressional leadership? Mr. DEAN. Congressional leadership. [01.00.54] Senator BAKER. I understand that, there is a meeting With the congressional leadership, usually on Tuesday morning. Is this what the president apparently indicated? Mr. DEAN. I do not know what particular day he, -was referring to and I cannot, recall which day of the week the 21st was. I have not checked my calendar on that. Senator BAKER. Go ahead, Mr. Dean. [01.01.17] Mr. DEAN. It was after--another point that came up In the conversation because we, talked about this subsequently on the 23d when he called me. I told him that I did not, think all of the individuals involved would remain silent. I had very much in mind the matter of Mr. McCord. [01.01.41] Now, I would like to put something else that has Just occurred to me that I do not believe has come out in the question and answer with regard to Mr. McCord. Shortly before the sentencing, I had a call from Mr. Mitchell and he suggested that Mr. Caulfield get back in touch again with Mr. McCord. I called Mr. Caulfield and talked to him about it and he said, well, I think I had better talk to you. I said well, fine. He said, I -want to come to your office and see you. And he came into my office and he told me--he came In with a small diary that, he had found in his car, and he said that he had described one of the meetings that he had had with Mr. McCord. that he had driven into the Country with Mr. McCord and had a discussion with him. Just, shortly before this meeting in January--no; it was much later than January. Excuse me, it was in March that he was cleaning his car out and found this small diary, and apparently, it was Mr. McCord's. In -it was noted each meeting that he had had with Mr. Caulfield and others and all the subsequent events that he had done. It -was a daily diary and was up to the day that Mr. Caulfield had met with him. Now. Mr. Caulfield handed it to me and I handed it back to Mr. Caulfield. Now, Caulfield, and he said, I do not want this, and he tore it, up and put it; in his pocket. [01.03.17-DEAN suspects that McCORD will talk soon] It was based on Oat that I told Mr. Mitchell that I did not think that it was very wise that Mr. Caulfield and Mr. McCord meet further, because it was quite obvious to me, as it was to Mr. Caulfield that Mr. McCord was keeping a very accurate diary of all of his activities. Senator BAKER. Let us go back to your conversation with the President---- [01.03.40-TAPE OUT]

TITLE: 'Oo-oh Acrobats!" Kids line up on the ground, huddled close together as acrobats run and jump over them. A little editing fun here as one shot is cut in normally and then backwards as if the acrobat did the jump both ways! Same trick to show a human pyrimid assemble in a fraction of a second.
