[00.19.15-WEICKER reads from a taped conversation between EHRLICHMAN and KLEINDIENST that revolves around efforts to influence and discredit Sen. WEICKER and the ERVIN COMMITTEE] EHRLICHMAN. I see. You don't think that this is evidence of alienation to the point of no return, then. KLEINDIENST. -NO. You mean by Lowell? EHRLICHMAN. Yeah. KLEINDIENST. No, I don't. He's pretty disenchanted with the whole concept of it. ***Connecticut politician--- EHRLICHMAN. Well, use your own judgement on it, Richard. KLEINDIENST. [continuing]. On TV I guess seven or eight times this Sunday when I finished my testimony before my Appropriations Committee all three networks I referred to the letter Hunt sent to Sirica and I am also emphasized and repeatedly Said (a) the President wants this investigated, let the chips fall where they will but secondly, that if anybody has any information we not only want it, we expect to get it so we can investigate it and if necessary, indict other people and that anybody who withholds information like that is obstructing justice, But I did not refer to Weicker and my judgement right now is not to do so. EHRLICHMAN. OK, KLEINDIENST. If he get gets to that point, the hell with him. EHRLICHMAN. Well, our uneducated and uninformed impression was that he was to develop an attack line here on the White House or the President. KLEINDIENST. If that *** if we would conclude that that is what he's up to that he is completely alienated then I say we've got to take him on, EHRLICHMAN. Well, keep track of that and you'll be talking to Baker and you get a feel of it. [00.20.45] Senator WEICKER. And the phone conversation goes on--this is in the, possession of the committee. if any of the committee members desires a full reading of it, I will be glad to do that but I am definitely opening this along the line of our committee and the other members of the committee and I do not think the other members of the committee--- Senator BAKER. The document is in the files, and I understand was transcribed by committee staff. Mr. DASH. Actual Actually, this was given to the, committee by Mr. Ehrlichman or Ehrlichman's counsel, Mr. Wilson, under subpena, the actual tape we understand is in the possession of the prosecutors. Senator BAKER. Thank you. Senator WEICKER. Now, Mr. Dean, I will pick up the time sequence here, in a minute, but in and around this period of time, do you know of any other efforts to interfere with other members of the committee? ? Mr. DEAN. Senator, I do not. At that time, I was up at Camp David at this point in time, and I was unaware. of what, was happening and I had developed somewhat of a strained relationship with the with Mr. Ehrlichman and Mr. Haldeman already by this time as a result of some of the things that had occurred on the 21st and 22d. And I believe the President was in Florida. [00.22.02-DEAN talks about his knowledge of attempts to influence or interfere with the ERVIN committee] Some time before this, I however, in discussing this committee, I recall hearing, and I cannot recall specifically who raised it, that a number of members of this committee, the Republican members, may have recalled campaign contributions during the 1970 election from the White House and some of that money might not have been reported and that should be examined. The records of that, of those contributions, are looked in a safe in my former office; they were deposited there by Mr. Colson. I have never read them. In fact, they were put in there with instructions that nobody on my staff was to look at them, including myself, and the thought was, it was to go through those and find out What was in there. I am not aware specifically of any of the details of any of the contributions that were made to Republicans or Democrats or anyone specifically. I know this was discussed though, at one point in time. Senator WEICKER. In other -words, this was one of the matters that -was discussed to look into as a means of--- Mr. DEAN. Senator, I believe it, was. Senator WEICKER. Of pressuring the, Committee? Mr. DEAN. Specifically, it was in reference to you and trying in some way to embarrass you. Senator WEICKER. I understand that and 'We are going to get to that. [00.23.29] I will have to pick up the next step on my own book. Around April 10 I was informed by an individual who is well aware of these contributions during the 1970 campaign that he had been approached by the White House and had been requested to indicate to them that something illegal or something wrong attached themselves to the contributions made to my campaign. His answer to the White House, and his answer to press people who had been sent by the White House, was that there wasn't -anything illegal and there wasn't anything wrong. But I was notified of this fact on April 10. [00.24.24]

[00.23.03-DEAN discusses the decision process of EHRLICHMAN, HALDEMAN, MITCHELL, on raising money to pay off the Watergate Defendants] Preceding that, there had been a good bit, of discussion between Mr. Haldeman and Mr. Ehrlichman and back and forth to Mr. Mitchell as to who was going to raise the necessary money. I reported to them that there, was nothing I could do, this was out of my hands, that Mr. Mitchell had felt it, was not his responsibility to raise this money and he was not, interested in doing it. Mr. Ehrlichman and Mr. Haldeman said that they thought it -was his. Finally, they asked Mr. Richard Moore, who was also attending the meeting, to go to Mr. Mitchell and lay it on the line that it was Mr. Mitchell's responsibility. Now, I assume, they did that because Mr. Moore had spent time at the Department of Justice working very closely with Mr. Mitchell and knew Mr. Mitchell. He, was an older man and they felt probably sending Mr. Moore as a direct emissary from them, rather than myself when I had failed to accomplish what they thought was necessary, might solve the problem. I later learned that Mr. Moore indeed did go to New York and did raise this with Mr. Mitchell. but Mr. Mitchell virtually ignored the matter when it -was raised by Mr. Moore. [00.24.16] Senator MONTOYA. Were these, particular conferences at San Clemente designed to just discuss the matter of Watergate? Mr. DEAN. They were designed to discuss how to deal with this committee so that the coverup would not unravel up here before this committee. Senator MONTOYA. That is all, Mr. Chairman. Thank you. Senator ERVIN. Senator Gurney?, [00.24.46-Sen. GURNEY continues to play batboy for the White House in questioning DEAN, trying to discredit DEAN'S story about enlisting KALMBACH to be the bagman for the payoff money to the defendants.] Senator GURNEY. Thank you, Mr. Chairman. Just a few questions, Mr. Dean. I would like to go back to the, Kalmbach meeting again when you and he first discussed this coverup money. Mr. DEAN. On the 29th, Senator? Senator GURNEY. June 29, Mr. DEAN. Yes. Senator GURNEY. You are, absolutely certain about that date? It could not have occurred in July, could it have? Mr. DEAN. The first meeting I had with him was when I flew in--he took the last flight, I believe, out of Los Angeles. We met the next morning The, records-- he very seldom stayed at the Mayflower Hotel and was staying at the Mayflower Hotel and I would assume that if the committee investigators would check the records of the Mayflower Hotel they could confirm that date. That is the best of my recollection, that it was the 29th. Senator GURNEY. This -was the June 29 date? Mr. DEAN. Yes. Senator GURNEY. Was there anyone else at the meeting? Mr. DEAN. No, sir. there was not. Senator GURNEY. And my recollection is that you had a short meeting in the coffee. shop, is that at right Mr. DEAN. I was to meet him in the, coffee, shop and I recall we sat down in the booth and it did not appear very private in the, booth, so We, decided to go to his room to discuss the matter. Senator GURNEY. And that, was there in the Mayflower Hotel? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. [00.26.28-Sen. GURNEY thinks he's got DEAN trapped in a lie] Senator GURNEY. Well, the committee has subpenaed the records of the hotel. I have a letter here from the Mayflower, and also one from the Statler Hilton. I would like a committee staffer to give these copies to the witness. Now, as You will see today, the letter is from the Mayflower Hotel, dated June, 27, 1973, addressed to Senator Gurney, Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities, U.S. Senate Office Building, Washington, D.C. [00.27.27-KALMBACH never stayed at the Mayflower Hotel] Dear Senator Gurney, in reply to your request of June 27, 1973, to the best of our knowledge, the records do not reflect a Mr. Herbert B. Kalmbach as being a registered guest during the period of June 1, 1972, through July 1, 1972. Very truly yours, Ray Sylvester, Senior Assistant Manager. Then the other letter from the Statler Hilton, again addressed to me. This also has the subpena of the committee plus photostatic copies of the hotel records. The hotel record photostatic copy is not very good here, so I think we are going to have to go by the letter itself. At any rate, here is what it says: Attached, please find photostatic copies of a previous subpena served on the Washington Statler Hilton, registration card and folio B. 96403, for Mr. Herbert W. Kalmbach who 'Was registered in our hotel from June 29-30, 1972. Original folio and registration card were received in compliance with the Previous subpena by Angelo J. Lano, S.A.F.B.I. telephone number 324-2685. we are Unable to locate any further records on Mr. Kalmbach. Sincerely, William J. Utnik, General Manager. [00.28.56]

[00.55.00-GURNEY continues to question DEAN about his meetings with NIXON at the time he decided to go to the prosecutors] Senator GURNEY. You are right. That is true. Now, why was that? You had been meeting with him almost daily there, in March on a number of things many of which had touched on the Watergate affair, according to your testimony. Why was there this total and you had sudden absence of any other contacts, meetings, or phone calls with the President? Mr. DEAN. Well, I call only tell you -what my impression of the situation is. When I met with him on the 22d in the, afternoon--let's say it was the, afternoon of the 21st--I had gotten rather factual and open in a meeting with Ehrlichman and Haldeman and the, President that I thought they could be indicted, that, I could be indicted, and I was disagreeing with most everything that, was being said in the meeting. I subsequently had a meeting the next day, on the 22d, in the morning, with Haldeman, Ehrlichman, Mitchell, and myself. There was further discussion of--one of the first things that came out, in the, meeting was the fact when Mr. Ehrlichman asked -Mr. Mitchell if Mr. Hunt's problems had been taken care, of, referring to the fact, that Hunt had made. demands. Mr. Mitchell said, "I don't think that, Hunt has any Problems anymore.". [00.56.24] Then there was the afternoon meeting in the President's office in which there was more discussion about how to handle this committee and deal with it, vis-a-vis the White House and the President and the President's Posture on executive privilege. I again had quite evidently shown. a different posture than I had before. Senator GURNEY. Well, that really--- Mr. DEAN. I have not finished. I was looking to see if the chairman wanted me to proceed. Senator ERVIN. There is a vote on now, and we will have to take a short recess, [Recess.] [00.57.10-MacNEILL v.o. states that there will be several rollcall votes that interrupt the afternoon session, when the senators return, GURNEY will continue, trying to pin down DEAN'S meetings with NIXON and the Prosecutors.] [00.57.29-cut to after recess] Senator ERVIN. The committee will resume Senator GURNEY. Mr. Dean, WE were discussing the time lapse, between those meetings with the President, the last meetings on the 20th and 21st and 22d and your next, communication with him, which was April 15, as I recall. [DEAN describes a meeting in which it is clear that NIXON, HALDEMAN, and EHRLICHMAN are all interested in continuing the coverup] Mr. DEAN. Yes, Senator, and I believe I was explaining that it was after the, meeting on the 22d, that a afternoon, when we met again with Mr. Mitchell, Haldeman, Mr. Ehrlichman, and the, President, and there was more discussion of dealing with this committee, some discussion about the fact that the Executive privilege statement was too broad and that the President would probably have to retreat somewhat to a position, this is Mr. Mitchell's suggestion, and he saw this to be the only problem in dealing with the committee. And then, on the 23d the President was going to Key Biscayne, and I believe he probably was in Key Biscayne when he called me, I am not certain because of the time frame. As I said, I had been surrounded by the, press and was it my house and I talked to Ehrlichman that morning I morning about the, McCord letter. and then the President called and suggested I go to Camp David, and I would say that was the last time I talked with him until April 15 at which time I sent him a message. [00.59.11-DEAN gives his opinion on the role of HALDEMAN, EHRLICHMAN, AND NIXON at that stage when the coverup was in jeopardy] Now, why did this happen? In my estimation, it was becoming Very evident to certainly _Mr. Haldeman, Mr. Ehrlichman, and probably the President, who was present during the meeting on the afternoon of the 21st, that I was; not playing the coverup game any more, and certainly -when I came back from Camp David that was very evident to them. in my meetings with Mr. Haldeman, my subsequent meeting with Mr. Mitchell and my meeting---- Senator GURNEY. When were they? Mr. DEAN. This was on the 28th. Senator GURNEY. The meeting with Mitchell. Mr. DEAN. Mitchell and Magruder. Mitchell and Magruder had met with Haldeman, and then when Mr. Haldeman called and asked me to come, back from Camp David and I had a brief meeting him, as I said, we had for many, many, many months, we talked very openly about---- [01.00.15]

[01.27.32-Sen. INOUYE continues to question DEAN about the degree of his involvement in spying and ENEMIES LIST projects in the White House-DEAN is a bit defensive] Senator INOUYE. How was this memo implemented? Could you give us examples, concrete examples? Mr. DEAN. The memo itself was never implemented. I never did have a political enemies project, that -was in any way operational. Senator INOUYE. However, we do have evidence, here that, for example a TV commentator with CBS was, in fact, audited by the Internal Revenue Service just for the purpose of harassment, isn't that Correct? Mr. DEAN. Well, I know Mr. Schorr had an FBI investigation. Senator INOUYE. Oh, it was an FBI? Mr. 'DEAN. Yes, it was. I know there were other instances. These did not come from me. Another instance, many times, members of the staff who were operating in the political area would want to see a tax return. My office, was supposed to be the office to have the facility to receive from Internal Revenue tax returns. I never called at any time I can ever remember while I was there to the Director of the Internal Revenue 'Service re requesting he send over a tax return on any individual to my office. Senator INOUYE. Have you ever seen tax returns Mr. DEAN. Have I other than my own? Senator INOUYE. Other than your own. Mr. DEAN. Only in connection with clearing individuals who voluntarily submitted them in relationship to a nomination for a Presidential appointment. Senator INOUYE. In your memo, you speak of granting availability, Federal contracts, et, cetera. I reefer you to exhibit No. 53. It is a memo for you from Gordon Strachan and it relates to Mr. Chet Huntley. It says here "John Whitaker has ordered the Department of Agriculture to quit dragging its heels on Big Sky," Was this a political favor? Mr. DEAN. What is the number of the exhibit,' Senator Senator INOUYE. I believe it is 53, sir. [01.29.47] Mr. DEAN. I recall the exhibit you are referring to, but it is not 53 in my sequence here. I believe that might be in 4, 5, 6, or 7. Well, anyway', I can answer the question. I recall there is a notation on it. [01.30.06-an example of the WHITE HOUSE'S tactics for "screwing our political enemies"] There -was at one point in time an effort, because of a comment--a rather hostile comment that Mr. Huntley had made regarding the President--there was an effort that I initially was unaware of to make it as difficult as possible for him to get his Big Sky project moving. Apparently, he needed assistance from the Department of the Interior. I would receive periodic calls asking me what is happening on that, and the like. I would, in turn, call John Whitaker, who is the person on the Domestic Council staff who had dealings with the Department of Interior. At one point in time, apparently, there was a change in heart on Chet Huntley and there was a turnaround, and Interior was given the signal that they should sign off on whatever it was he needed to get his Big Sky project accomplished. Now, I would have to review the document, that you are reefering to, and that may well answer your question. [01.31.12] Senator INOUYE. I believe this line of questioning IS very important, because your exhibits have listed, I would say, a couple of hundred names of very distinguished Americans most of them, and other exhibits have suggested that extra-legal activities had been carried out in connection with these names Now, there are Members of the Senate and Members of the House whose names have appeared, but, to date, you have been able to tell us of the possibility of a man from CBS, and Chet Huntley. @ [01.31.55]

[00.57.50-GURNEY wants to suggest that DEAN has cooked up his allegations against the PRESIDENT to get an immunity deal from the committee to protect himself from prosecution] Senator GURNEY. But none of what has transpired here as far as your testimony is concerned can be used against you in a further criminal proceeding Isn't that correct? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. If it is impossible-or If it is possible to take the lead problem out of an individual's testimony. Senator GURNEY. Now, just in summary, Mr. Dean, I wonder if we can go over the salient points of the 5 days. Again as I understand it, to your own knowledge you have no knowledge that President Nixon was ever involved in the, planning or the break-in at Watergate; is that correct? Mr. DEAN. I have no direct knowledge of that, that, is correct. [00.58.35-GURNEY tries to get the last word on DEAN by asking for a summary of DEAN'S infrequent contact with NIXON in 1972, hoping to leave the impression that NIXON was out of the loop on WATERGATE and the COVERUP] Senator GURNEY. Then. in the year 1972 the only meeting you ever had with the President on Watergate was on September 15, is that correct? Mr. DEAN. Yes, and I believe -we have been over that in detail. Senator GURNEY. We have been over that in detail, and I don't think it would serve any purpose to go over it again. [00.58.52] In 1973 the two occasions that you did discuss Watergate -with him prior to March 21, was that meeting on February 27, is that that correct? Mr. DEAN. Well, as I, in answering Senator Baker's questions yesterday I don't know if you were present, Senator. we, were, going through all of the circumstantial situations leading up to the meetings that occurred in February and March. and the fact that there was a developing strategy that had occurred in California at the La Costa meetings and on the tall end of those and consistent with those I had a number of meetings with the President where subjects related to that particular California policy-setting meeting were being continually discussed. [00.59.49-GURNEY wants to pin down that DEAN can't link NIXON to any according-to-hoyle CRIMES before February, 1973] Senator GURNEY. I understand that, but I mean the direct involvement of the possible criminal activities of Watergate February 27 -was the first meeting was it not, when, as you testified the question of obstruction of justice came up, isn't that correct Mr. DEAN. That, is correct. Senator GURNEY. And you stated that you might be implicated in some way in that, and the President said no. he didn't think- so. Isn't that the substance of that? Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Senator GURNEY. Then, on March 13 you also- Mr. DEAN. That was, I believe, on the 28th that came. up, Senator. Senator GURNEY. Twenty-eighth. All right. Then one other meeting on March 13 you had another conversation with him that involved this Executive clemency business, Isn't that correct? [01.00.35-DEAN discusses CLEMENCY and PAYOFFS, and his discussion with NIXON on those subjects-DEAN tells the same story he has been telling for 5 days] Mr. DEAN. On March 13 we discussed both clemency and the fact that this was no money. The way the clemency came up as you will recall is that at the he end of another conversation I raised with him the fact that there were demands being made for money, for continued money, there was no money around to pay it. He asked me how, you know, how much it was going to cost. I gave my best estimate, Which I said was $1 million. He, in turn, said to me, "Well, $1 million is certainly no problem to raise." and turned to Mr. Haldeman and made a similar comment, and then he came back after, just a brief discussion on that, and I remember very clearly the way he pushed his chair from His desk as he was looking back at Mr. Haldeman to get, you know, the same message through to Mr. Haldeman, you know, that $ 1 million is no problem. Then he came back up, he rolled his chair back up toward the desk and said to me who is making the principal demands for this money at that point in time. [01.01.38] I said they were coming principally from Mr. Hunt through his attorney, and he turned to the discussion of the fact that, he had talked with Mr. Ehrlichman and Mr. Colson about clemency for Mr. Hunt and he expressed annoyance at the fact that Mr. Colson had come to him contrary to an instruction that the President was aware of that Colson wasn't to raise this with him. Senator GURNEY. So there -were discussions- Mr. DEAN. Then we went on to discuss the delivery, you know, how this money was delivered and I told him that it was laundered and told him I was learning about things that I had never known about before, and I recall very vividly how Mr. Haldeman thought this was very funny and started laughing. [01.02.23] Senator GURNEY. So there were really two main discussions on Watergate, the money, the coverup money that you have just discussed and also the Executive clemency, and Mr. Haldeman was present during these discussions? [01.02.37-DEAN tries to steer GURNEY away from his strictly legalistic construction of the COVERUP. GURNEY wants to force DEAN to admit that he can't strongly pin NIXON to involvement in actual CRIMES] Mr. DEAN. Well, Senator, not to take anything away from your interpretation but a lot, of the discussion that occurred regarding the press conferences the. positions we were, going to take on executive privilege, and the, like, had direct, implications on unraveling the Watergate. Senator GURNEY. Well, I understand that. Indeed, I do, but I am talking about the criminal activities. Certainly press conferences, Executive clemency do not involve any criminal activity. I am just trying to pinpoint the criminal parts of it, and then, of course, there was the meeting on March 21. Mr. DEAN. I might add that In, as I told you, in one point in time when I went to discuss this with counsel, who is an experienced prosecutor, he said that oftentimes intervening events show intention and purpose. That is why I have tried to report everything I know to the committee as fully as I know. Senator GURNEY. I understand that, and I as a committee, member am extremely glad you did, because I do think it sheds a lot of light and it will help the deliberations of the committee when other witnesses come before it. I am not in any way deprecating the importance. of all of the events that surrounded these transactions in Watergate, but I am trying to pinpoint the criminal parts of it. And that really is the sum and substance of your direct knowledge, direct conversations -with the President on the criminal activity? Mr. DEAN. On the March 13 meeting. Senator GURNEY. Well, I also said the March 21. Mr. DEAN. THAT is correct. We have gone over the March 21 meeting. Senator GURNEY. Yes; we don't need to go over it again. I am just pinpointing that time----- [01.04.28-TAPE OUT]

News in Brief: California, Lady Godiva - 1951. Mrs. Jerry Coburn creates quite a stir when she rides as 'Lady Godiva' during a horse show. But obedient husbands turn their backs as she arrives, and police act fast to prevent peeking. Blond woman sits reading book to man. The same woman, wearing very long blond hair (wig, most likely) and not much else, rides a white horse with a sign around its neck, "Taxes too high." Audience of ranch-type folk in cowboy hats, flannel, etc., stand up and turn their backs to the camera. The lady rides around, sidesaddle-style (but without a saddle). Older man peeks between slats in a fence, but a cowboy type with a sheriff's badge catches and gently shakes the peeping tom. A group of gentleman cowpokes wrap the lady in a blanket for modesty. Nudity?

[01.00.15-GURNEY continues questioning DEAN] Senator GURNEY. When was that ? Mr. DEAN. This was on the 28th. Senator GURNEY. In the meantime. you had engaged counsel on the 25th? Mr. DEAN. Well, no. sir-yes, I did, I did, I engaged-- Senator GURNEY. Hogan? Mr. DEAN. I engaged Hogan in regard to the story running in the Los Angeles Times--- Senator GURNEY. And Mr. Shaffer on the 30th. Mr. DEAN. When I was at Camp David I -really made, a decision there was no way that I was going to continue in the coverup. [01.00.46] Senator GURNEY. All of these meetings on the 20th, 21st, 22d, as I understand it, they -were the first meetings between what I would call perhaps the most principal people involved in Watergate, at least those in the White House, to where you were coming to serious discussion about what, ought to be done and all of you realized that something certainly had to be done, and done rather fast, as I understand it? Mr. DEAN. I would not characterize the, meetings as to -what had to be done. In fact, the meetings -were, as I believe I described them in my testimony, very similar to many, many meetings had occurred, or I had been in earlier where we talked about, you know, how do -we deal with the Senate committee, the President at one point in the meeting picked up the phone and called the Attorney General and asked him why he had not been meeting with Senator Baker. Senator GURNEY. But the March 21 meeting -was a meeting that, as I understand it, you sought with the President to tell him, as I think you said, the broad outlines of the Watergate story. Is that -not, right? [01.01.56-DEAN argues that it was evident to him that NIXON knew about Watergate and the Coverup prior to DEAN'S meeting on March 21, 1973] Mr. DEAN. Well, as I said also, we had discussed the Watergate on previous occasions before that, we discussed it on the 13th. We talked about money and clemency. He had told me as early as my February -meetings -with him, that I was to report, directly to him at that point. If you check some of the exhibits that I have submitted you will see that there are a lot of Presidential decisions being made as a result of the La Costa meeting, and it was at one point I decided that I had to tell the, President what I thought the implications of this whole situation was. That I thought that not only was there a problem for some that were involved before the break-in had become known but I thought there, were a lot that had problems is a result of the break-in, and that the coverup could not continue. Senator GURNEY. Well, at any rate, whatever was being discussed at these meetings the 20th, the 21st, and the 22d, they certainly were very important matters affecting Watergate, is that not true? Mr. DEAN. They were affecting Watergate, to the degree of how to deal with this Senate, committee, yes. Senator GURNEY. You mean you only discussed the Senate committee in these meetings? Mr. DEAN. That is the thrust of virtually the entire. conversations that occurred, particularly -when Mr. Mitchell was present, the morning he was present, on the 22d. Senator GURNEY. What about the meeting of the 21st? You had two that day, one with the President when Mr. Haldeman came in later, and then another one, with Mr. Haldeman, Ehrlichman, and yourself and the President. Was that the subject of this committee here that you talked about? Mr. DEAN. I think, as I testified, that after I had completed my presentation to the President from some, of the, questions he asked and some of the statements he made I did not, feel that he fully understood the problem that people at the, White House had for their involvement in the post situation. It was somewhat like---- Senator GURNEY. So it was a much wider discussion than simply this committee? Mr. DEAN. Not really, Senator, it was, it was [01.04.12-TAPE OUT]

[00.45.26-GURNEY questions DEAN about his handling of cash funds in his custody. DEAN explains his actions in light of the demands to get cash to bribe the defendants to keep silent] Senator GURNEY. If you were requesting it just to make the fund whole, why would you be so unwilling to part with the $15,000 that you had? Mr. DEAN. Because as I say, there was pressure from the White House and within days after Mr. Stans returned or sent over the $22,000, the demand reached such a crescendo that in fact I was asked to go to Mr. Haldeman and get authorization to use, the entire $350,000. And I was very much aware of being in the Middle of the dual conversation, on the one hand to make the funds whole, and simultaneously with making money available to pay the defendants. I had no idea how it was going to turn out. Senator GURNEY. Well, I must say I am puzzled. I do not quite follow the reasoning. First you say that you did not use the $15,200 which came from the $22,000 to return it and make it whole again because you thought that money might be used for silence money. But, then, when I asked you when you requested it from Mr. Stans, you had no compunctions about that. You said, "Well, that was not going to be used for that." Now, which is which? Mr. DEAN. Well, as I say, I was not discussing with Mr. Stans the fact that there was pressure being placed on the White House to pay money, that was coming to me from other channels. I was always hopeful that -we would find some remedy, that that $350,000 would not be used to pay for the support of these individuals. There was certainly no certainty that that would or would not happen. I had discussed it, with Mr. Haldeman, the, fact that they were asking for the money. Mr. Haldeman agreed that we ought to make the money whole. I told him that there. were demands and there were requests upon it. So I kept the $15,200 totally out of the conversations. Senator GURNEY. But the $15,200 had come out of the, $22,000, had it not? Mr. DEAN. That is Correct. [00.47.02-GURNEY wants to portray DEAN'S dealings with the cash funds as corrupt in some way. DEAN counters] Senator GURNEY. I should think the logical thing to have done would be to return that and also to have added $6,800 from Mr. Stans and made it whole. Mr. DEAN. Well, Senator, from where I was sitting, that seemed like a great risk that that money was going to go to pay the defendants. Senator GURNEY. Was it, not a greater risk for you to have it and be short the $4,850 which it was short? Mr. DEAN. I was quite. prepared to make that money -whole at any point in time. Senator GURNEY. When you put the check in the, envelope that contained the $15,200, your check, I understand, of $4,850---- Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Senator GURNEY. What account -was that drawn on? Mr. DEAN. It was drawn on my personal checking account. Senator GURNEY. Was there, enough money in the checking account to cover it? Mr. DEAN. NO, there -was not at that time, but on previous occasions, I had overdrawn my account and it had been covered. Within 24 hours, I was able to get the money in the bank and cover it. Senator GURNEY. I have here, a copy of a bank statement that at came in at noontime, from the National Savings & Trust Co., showing an account to John Wesley Dean III. Is that, the account that you drew the check on? Mr. DEAN. I assume, because that is the, only checking account I have at that bank. Mr. THOMPSON. I might, point out, Senator Gurney and Mr. Chairman, this is pursuant to a subpena signed by the, chairman on the 22d of this month. We received certain records--they were, being compiled, they -were furnished to us over the noon recess. I have here the document that Senator Gurney is making reference to, which is a bank statement dated October 26, 1972, on the National Savings & Trust Co., Washington, D.C. So I have here two copies for you and counsel. I submit, it -at this time. [the statement is passed to DEAN] [00.49.45--GURNEY continues to pursue the angle of accusing DEAN of embezzling campaign funds to discredit his charges against HALDEMAN, EHRLICHMAN, AND NIXON] Senator GURNEY. I wonder if you would look at the, bank statement and tell the, committee how much money you had in the checking account at that time, Mr. Dean. Mr. DEAN. At -which time, Senator Senator GURNEY. October 12. Mr. DEAN. The. balance indicates about $1,600. Senator GURNEY. $1,623.12, is that not correct? Mr. DEAN. That, is correct. Senator GURNEY. Yet, you put in your file -where you were keeping the money in trust, a, check for $4,850. Mr. DEAN. That is correct. [00.50.20]

TLS/MS/CUs of a large crowd gathered at an outdoor political rally in downtown to protest the Helms-Burton Bill of 1996. A very non-violent yet spirited display. Some carry Cuban flags or homemade banners, others wear t-shirts bearing the likenesses of Che Guevera or Fidel Castro or Jose Marti. A rather young crowd, many children (in scoutish uniforms), college students, and Cuban military soldiers (in green fatigues). At the forefront is a stage on which politicians, supporters and reformers stand. Sections of the crowd start and maintain political chants but the general vibe is subdued and chatty. Good LSs of the rally clogging street. CU of the Cuban flag flying from flagpole. MSs speakers on stage, Cuban flags in FG.
