[00.13.50] Mr. THOMPSON. All right. Mr. Dean, let me move now, if I may, to Why you have talked about your involvement in the coverup, why you Participated in the coverup. In any way was it because of the fear that you had about your own personal involvement up until that time? When you beard about the, break-in at the DNC -what. 'went through your mind? Did you have fear concerning your Own personal involvement in the matter up until that time? Mr. DEAN. When I first heard of the, break-in on Sunday the 18th, I frankly thought that it involved Mr. Colson, as I believe I testified. It was on Monday I learned--- Mr. THOMPSON. Why? Mr. DEAN. Why? Well, I was aware, of the fact, that Mr. Colson had suggested burglaries in the past, specifically the, Brookings Institute, and the name Hunt I immediately associated with Colson. Mr. THOMPSON. When did you learn about the name Hunt? Mr. DEAN. I think I first met Mr. Hunt in August. Mr. THOMPSON. I am sorry, when did You find out that, Mr. Hunt was involved in some way in the break-in? Mr. DEAN. On Sunday, I did not know about the break-in, I knew about the fact there was a Cuban who had a check written out to Mr. Hunt to some, country club In his possession when he -was arrested. Mr. THOMPSON. You learned this in your telephone call from California or did you learn this after you returned to Washington? Mr. DEAN. I learned this after I returned on Sunday night, the 18th. Mr. THOMPSON. So I assume, your immediate reaction--you returned to Washington and learned about the Hunt matter? Mr. DEAN. That is correct, and my reaction that Colson was involved. Mr. THOMPSON. Go ahead in regard to Yourself. Mr. DEAN. Yes. Then, on the 19th when I talked to Magruder and learned that he had indicated it -was Liddy's fault and after talking to Liddy. I was not personally concerned about myself because I knew very -well that I had not authorized any such thing, that I had not, known about anything from February until that time. Mr. THOMPSON. Let Me explore that point with You, not necessarily from the standpoint of whether or not You did in fact have any culpability at that time, but what it might appear to be. After all, you had introduced Liddy, to 'Mitchell had You not? I believe you had in fact recommended. or sent, anyway, Mr. Liddy over to the, Committee To Re-Elect You explained how this came about-- starting from the, standpoint of somebody investigating the matter from outside-- that you sent Mr. Liddy to the Committee To Re-Elect. You did attend the January 27 meeting -when these, matters were discussed, you did attend the February 4 meeting when these matters were discussed Very possibly -when somebody talked about these meetings very possibly it could get out that a conspiracy of some kind was in the, making. You know the law of conspiracy, generally, if a person involves himself in a conspiracy and one of his coconspirators subsequently commits an overt act, he very well may be held responsible for what one of his coconspirators does. You are a lawyer. I am sure you realize that. Liddy did come to You after' those meetings in February and March to solicit, your help in getting this plan approved and you said you turned him off at that time. Strachan and Magruder did Call 'you when they were, having trouble with Liddy to get you to help them on one of their problems with Liddy. Evidently, Strachan or Magruder or Liddy himself felt, that you had some involvement. Mr. DEAN. Maybe we can come back at some other time and I will explain that to you. Mr. THOMPSON. All right, I am finished. I am talking about all of these things. Did you not, at one point, say to Yourself, it looks like I am Possibly involved in this thing or very much involved in this thing, therefore, I am going to participate in a coverup? Mr. DEAN. When I learned, for example, talking to Mr. Strachan, that he had been instructed to destroy records, that, was my greatest concern at that time. If it had been merely John Dean, we, would have had far fewer problems because I would have been willing to step forward as I did with Ehrlichman. I told him exactly what my involvement was -when I was first, asked by him what it -was. The stakes were too high regarding any personal feelings that I had regarding myself. I had no criminal problem. If they -wanted to fire me on the basis of 'the involvement I had, fine. If we could reelect the President, fine. John Dean certainly would not, stand in the way of that. People were removed from the White House for far less. [00.18.53]

[00.18.53-THOMPSON makes some effort to question DEAN'S motives] Mr. THOMPSON. What, you are saying is that you had no 'concern for your own welfare, but you just wanted to stay on to help out others? Mr. DEAN. Well, as I say, I found myself helping out others without--I was in the process before I began thinking about the process. Mr. THOMPSON. Why did you not tell the Federal prosecutors -when you first. made, contact with them?: I believe it was April 2 of this year when your attorney first made contact with the Federal prosecutors. I am still not quite sure in my own mind why you did not, evidently, relate, to them the nature of the, President's involvement or the fact that the President was involved to some extent. Mr. DEAN. Well, Of course, it -was not my presence at the meetings, so I am not aware of what was discussed. My lawyer and I did discuss it. We were aware of the fact that there, were attorney-client privilege problems, there was executive privilege, there were national security matters and I frankly was hopeful that at some point. when the President returned. I would have a chance to go in and tell the President this is the way I saw it: this is -what I have done, and ask him, based on that, expect him to come forward and explain his involvement the way I thought he -would. Mr. THOMPSON. When were, you terminated at the White House, Mr. Dean? Mr. DEAN. My resignation was requested and accepted on April 30. Mr. THOMPSON. Without your involvement? Mr. DEAN. Without my involvement. Mr. THOMPSON. So you had from April 2 to April 30 in which to do what you are talking 'about, meet the President and try to get him to step forward. Mr. DEAN. Let me get this straight. I am talking about the period from April 2 to April 15. there were no discussions with the President. From April 15 on. I began inferentially, because it was impossible to explain things, explaining the highlights of some of the things that involved the President without getting terribly specific with him. but giving him very broad ideas of some of the areas that were involved. Mr. THOMPSON. If you were interested in his coming forward. Why did you not tell him that you were talking to the prosecutors or that you had made some contact with the prosecutors? Mr. DEAN. Well. I met with him on the 21st. I met with him again on the 22d, called again on the 23d. I had given him what I thought was the most dramatic way I could tell him what the situation was. Nothing happened as a result of that. He then went to California. When he came back from California I noted that there was- well actually, when I came back from Camp David on the 28th before they went to California--he had been in Florida in the interim; there was a very changed attitude about me at that point in time. I -was getting signals from Haldeman in my meetings with him. He directed me to come down, really from Camp David. He said, you just, cannot hole up there. I said I do not want to talk to -Mitchell. He said, I think you have to come down and talk to Mitchell. It was very clear to me Mr. Haldeman wanted me. to come down and talk to Mitchell and -Magruder. I saw a very different Bob Haldeman than I had dealt with over the last year. That was clear to me that there was a new concern and I had become a concern. It was for that. reason that I did not turn over the report I had written at Camp David. The whole atmosphere changed after--really, after I had gone to Camp David. Probably the greatest change occurred in the meeting on the afternoon of the 21st or the 22d, when Ehrlichman, Haldeman and I met with the President, and I said in front of the President for the first time ever that I thought I had kept this agreement, everything was being said, because I said, Ehrlichman Haldeman, and Dean are all indictable. Mr. THOMPSON. Let us consider what your motivations would be at that time. You mentioned first of all the attorney-client privilege, in which, of course. I assume you are talking about conversations that you would have had with the President. Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Mr. THOMPSON. But there is an abundance of information that you could have given which would not have involved attorney-client privilege based on what you told us. Mr. DEAN. As I say, we were researching it at the, time and we concluded that there was no attorney-client privilege. Mr. THOMPSON. I am talking about what Ehrlichman told you. According to your testimony, Ehrlichman told you that- the President had approved Executive clemency for Hunt to try to his mouth shut. You talked to Colson telling you that the President approved Executive clemency for Hunt to remain quiet. You have testified that Krogh told you that he got his instructions for the Ellsberg psychiatrist's break-in from the oval office. None of those. things involved communications with the President It could not have possibly involve the attorney-client privilege, could it? Mr. DEAN. They could not involve the attorney--client privilege. none of them involved conversations I had directly with the President, yes. Some of them did not. As I say, there was also the- executive privilege question, there were national security questions. We had resolved that in fact, these did not apply. [00.24.33]

[00.24.33] Mr. THOMPSON. Did you tell the prosecutors about the Ellsberg break-in? Mr. Dean. Yes, I did. Mr. THOMPSON. So you had resolved that question? Mr. DEAN. NO, I did not tell them the totality of It. What I said was that they had evidence in their files that they should reexamine because it indicated a break-in I did this because there is case law my lawyer told me about,. He said, John, you are. committing another crime if you do not tell and you have to reveal this to them and they are on that case. He said, there is an ongoing prosecution. You must give them enough so that they can look at their files and make the determination. [00.25.05-MORE attempts to dismantle DEAN'S CREDIBILITY] Mr. THOMPSON. Mr. Dean, is it your testimony that you were, not in effect bargaining for immunity or seeking immunity? Mr. DEAN-. My lawyers, were very heavily discussing immunity with the prosecutors at that time. Mr. THOMPSON. And you failed at, the U.S. attorney's office in that attempt, did you not? Of course, I might add that that is a very proper thing for attorneys to pursue. The fact is they -were. Mr. DEAN. That, is right. What happened is my lawyers worked out, what they called a phase I with the--- Mr., THOMPSON. Phase, I? Mr. DEAN. Phase, I, in which I would--- Mr. THOMPSON. You did not have any better luck than the other phase I. Mr. DEAN. I -would discuss with the prosecutors everything I could remember. everything I could tell them and the evidence could -not be used against me so they could assess what they wanted to do with that. That was the design of phase 1, which I did. Mr. THOMPSON. All right. And then contact was made -with Mr. Dash. Mr. DEAN. Mr. Dash made contact -with us. Mr. THOMPSON. Well, either way you want to put it, you discussed the matter with Mr. Dash, who very properly, of course, was seeking any information he could get and talked with you about these matters. Then, for the first, time. as far as I know--you correct, me. if I am wrong--after that, some time after that, the stories started appearing quoting sources close to you to the effect, that you had met with Nixon more than 40 times to discuss the coverup, that Nixon had substantial knowledge, about -what the, White, House people were doing and all those things. [00.26.52-THOMPSON challenges DEAN again] Now, I do not want to leave an unfair implication if I am wrong about this, but the obvious question is whether or not you -went to the prosecutors gave them what you thought, might be enough to get immunity, and having failed there, came to this committee and offered a little more in order to get immunity for this committee. Was that or Was that not your strategy? Mr. DEAN,. I believe that is not correct. Mr. THOMPSON. In what, points does that thesis break down? Mr. DEAN. Phase I had effectively gone into' abeyance. Mr. THOMPSON. Were we considered phase II? Mr. DEAN. No, no, I am talking about the off the record discussions with the prosecutors had gone into abeyance by the time Mr. Dash contacted us, because we were giving them so much information so fast and the thing was tumbling so quickly that they were in pursuit of it and it became more and more difficult for me. There -also was the increasing demand for a special prosecutor. The prosecutors didn't know their own status. Meanwhile, Mr. Dash asked to discuss it with my attorney and he said, you are going to be called. you are going 'called soon and I want to know what it is all about. So he was given the story, Mr. THOMPSON. Of course, you did get immunity from this committee, use immunity. One last question, Mr. Dean. The reason I ask this, of course. is that your statement is replete with references about your desire to uncover the coverup and your desire to tell the truth in all these matters. Before you were, forced out of the White House--as you stated, you started making contact with the prosecutors on April of this year, you had substantial difficulty with Mr. Haldeman and Mr. Ehrlichman concerning their desire, to get Mitchell to take the rap and get them off the hook. Why didn't, you resign, call a press conference, and tell the, entire truth about the matter if you wanted it to come out, substantially, before you--- Mr. DEAN. When I was at Camp David-I went up on the 23d. On the 25th, I talked to a lawyer, and I told him I wanted to take some steps. He cautioned me, saying, for gosh sakes. don't do anything until you do talk to a lawyer. So it, was when I came back from Camp David on the 28th that I again began calling to obtain a criminal lawyer. He told me--he said, John, he said, I know you want to get the truth out, and that was the first thing we told the prosecutors. He said, you don't have to run in a machinegun to do it. You have a Constitution, you can protect your rights, YOU can go forward, and I am going to represent you, I am going to represent you the best way I know as a member of the bar and I will give you the best counsel I can. I have tried to follow his counsel and simultaneously get the truth out. [00.29.54]

[00.29.54] Mr. THOMPSON. Fine. Just one small matter. I don't want to leave any inferences from the story I quoted a minute ago concerning your meeting with Mr. Dash. I don't know the source, and this is not the proper time to find out The source. The only thing I am sure of is that it was not Mr. Dash. I just want to put that on the record. I have no further questions. Senator ERVIN. Senator Talmadge. [00.30.20] Senator TALMADGE. Thank You, Mr. Chairman. Mr. Dean, you realize, of course that You have made very strong charges against the President, of the United States that involves him in criminal offenses, do you not ? Mr. DEAN. Yes, sir, I do. Senator TALMADGE. What makes you think that your credibility is, greater than that of the President, who denies what you have said? Mr. DEAN. Well, Senator, I have been asked to come up here, and tell the, truth. I have told it exactly the way I know it. I don't say that I--you are asking me a public relations questions really, in a sense, why I would have greater credibility than the President of the United States. I am telling you what I know. I am telling you just as I know it. Senator TALMADGE. Now, you are testifying, I believe, under immunity that this committee has granted to you. Mr. DEAN. That is correct. Senator TALMADGE. You would not be here testifying today, had we not granted that use immunity, would you? Mr. DEAN. I would probably be before the prosecutors downtown. Senator TALMADGE. 'NOW, you refused to testify before the grand jury, I believe, did you not? Mr. DEAN,. That is correct. Senator TALMADGE. You pled the fifth amendment there? Mr. DEAN. That is correct, Senator TALMADGE. You have been bargaining With them for immunity -which has not, yet been granted. Is that an accurate statement? Mr. DEAN. that at is correct, Senator. Senator TALMADGE. NOW, there have been various reports in the press; I know nothing whatever about their credence. Did you see an article in one of the Washington papers that you were kicked out of a law, firm here for violation of the canon of ethics? Mr. DEAN. I did, sir. Senator TALMADGE. Would you like to comment on that? Mr. sometime DEAN. Yes, I Would. To explain that is that I learned about that sometime after it had occurred. That was -when I had left--I had been on the hill working with the House Judiciary Committee. I had gone to a newly formed commission that was working on a revision of the Federal criminal laws and the Civil Service ran a normal civil service examination. As a result of that, they -went to a former employer, the employer indicated he had dismissed me for unethical reasons. The Deputy Director of the Commission brought this to my attention and said, is this true? I said, I am -flabbergasted to see this. I called a friend who had been in the firm at, the time, Who is another lawyer. I asked him if 'he would go to The person who had made the charge and if he could find out what in the -world this is all about. I explained to him the entire set, of facts and circumstances that had occurred. As a result of this man going to see the former partner who had dismissed me,, the statement was retracted in my civil service record. Also. I should note one of the reasons that I was prepared to go to the ethics committee at that point in time is because I was operating on the advice of counsel when I was involved in this investment, while I was still at this law firm. and I believe we had really a question of Personalities rather than a question of ethics involved. I would be happy to submit to the committee for its record the letter of counsel that I was operating on at the time this incident occurred, that I had sought legal advice as to whether this Was proper or improper because I did not Want to engage in it if it Was improper. Senator TALMADGE. If you will submit that for the record, we -will appreciate it. I judge from your statement that that was an unfair and unfounded attack on your professional ethics. Senator ERVIN. I would suggest that he read it. [00.34.00]

[00.34.00] Mr. DEAN Would you like me to read the letter? This is a letter to the man who investigated the matter. It is from Earl Stanley of the firm of Dow. Lohnes & Albertson: DEAR. Mr. TAPITCH: This will confirm and supplement my recent conversations with you concerning events preceding and to some degree 'surrounding the resignation in early February 1966 of 'Mr. John Dean from the law firm of Welch & Morgan, Washington, D.C. As you know, Mr. Boyd Fellows approached me in October of 1965 about the possibility of representing an applicant for a construction permit for a new television station in St. Louis, Mo. At that time. Mr. Fellows was, in essence, considering various law firms in Washington as communications counsel for a group which he was putting together to apply for a St. Louis Television Authorization. I had known _Mr. Fellows for some time before he approached me and as a result of our initial contact, I told him I would he pleased to. represent his group and to assist them in any way that I could in the filing and prosecution of their application at the Federal Communications Commission. At that time, -Mr. Fellows' plans appeared to be very much in the Preliminary stages. No corporation had been organized, specific program plans had not been formulated, and few if any of the other necessary investigations and work preliminary to the preparation of the application had been completed. At our initial conference, Mr. Fellows pointed out that he was then employed as a television management expert at Welch & Morgan and that his name had appeared in other a applications for television authorizations which have been filed by that firm, including one in St. Louis, Mo. It was my understanding that the firm of Welch & Morgan would probably eventually own approximately 30 percent of that, St. Louis television operation consistent with -the pattern followed by the firm in connection with other television authorizations. I told Mr. Fellows that insofar as he was concerned, there was no problem of ethics involved since he was not a practicing attorney. My recollection is that Mr. Fellows had already made known his plans and proposals to one or more partners of Welch & Morgan. I did advise 'Mr. Fellows that when, if and shortly before the application for his group was filed, due to Commission requirements he would have to sever connections with the other St. Louis television group. At our conference, in October, Mr. Fellows also discussed with me the possibility of 'Mr. John Dean becoming a part of the group. 'Mr. Dean was then a recent associate at 'Welch & Morgan, but according to my recollection was contemplating the possibility of a change in positions. I was- told that 'Mr. Dean's participation in the group was to be largely that of an investor, that he did not desire, plan or feel qualified to advise the applicant corporation in any way as to the preparation of its application. and that I would be relied upon for such advice and guidance. I advised Mr. Fellows that, in my opinion, it would not be unethical or improper in any respect for Mr. Dean to become a part of the group recognizing that if and when the application was filed at the Commission, he should plan to resign from Welch & Morgan because of that firm's interest in another St. Louis group. The subject of Mr. Dean's participation in the St. Louis group was also mentioned at a luncheon meeting which I had with 'Mr. Fellows and 'Mr. Dean in November of 1965 at Costin's Restaurant in Washington, D.C. 'My recollection of the details is quite vague but I am certain that I told 'Mr. Dean the same thing that I had earlier told Mr. Fellows,. I might say in conclusion that I have always regarded Mr. John Dean is an extremely honorable, conscientious, careful and able man. His honesty and his integrity, in my opinion, are both beyond question, His care and his conduct in connection with his participation in the application for a television authorization in St- Louis demonstrated these very qualifications. As to what occurred between Mr. Dean and 'Mr. Welch of Welch & Morgan at the time Mr. Dean resigned in February of 1966. 1 have no personal knowledge. I do know that at the time application of 'Mr. Fellows' group, Greater St. Louis Television, Inc., was filed in March, 1906. 'Mr. Dean was no longer an associate with Welch & Morgan. The above is according to my best recollection and knowledge.. If you have any questions or need some further details, please let me know. With kindest regards, Cordially yours. Senator TALMADGE. I believe you testified that you met with the President in March of this year and informed him fully about your participation and the your of others in the participation in the coverup of the Watergate incident and, at that time, as I recall. you told the President that both you, Mr. Ehrlichman, and Mr. Haldeman were indictable is that correct? Mr. DEAN. That was in an ,It afternoon meeting when I met with him -which I believe, was on the afternoon of the 21st. Senator TALMADGE. Was anyone there besides you and the President? Mr. DEAN. Initially Mr. Ziegler was in--at the meeting in the morning it was only the President and I initially. At the end of the conversation he called Mr. Haldeman in to request that Mr. Haldeman get ahold of Mr. Mitchell to get Mr. Mitchell down there for a meeting the next day. In the, afternoon, Mr. Ziegler was in the office for a very short period of time, and then left as the, meeting commenced with Ehrlichman, Haldeman, the President, and myself. So there was no other person than those involved. [00.39.22]
