  • Description

    President Ford's election campaign has run into new difficulties following suggestions that he may have been involved in the early stages of the cover-up of the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of President Nixon. The allegations were made by a former White House aide in the Nixon administration, Mr. John ???, who has served a prison term for his part in the cover-up. The allegations were made on N.B.C.'s programme "Today" emanating from New York. Reporters Carl Stern and Tom Brokaw talked to John Dean. John Dean said another White House employee, Mr. Richard Cook, had told him that Mr. gerald Ford -- then a Congressman -- was going to instruct members of a Republican Congressional Party to vote against an inquiry into the Watergate scandal in its early stages. John Dean said Mr. ford had a number of meetings with Mr. Cook. Dean was asked about the allegations.
