  • Description

    Convicted 'Watergate' conspirator James McCord gave evidence on the affair before the continued donate investigations in Washington on Tuesday (May 22). McCord, a former Central Intelligence Agency employee, is awaiting sentence for breaking into the Democratic Party headquarters in the Watergate building.

    Following McCord's testimony on why he decided to confess his part in the crime, former White House ??? John Caulfield gave evidence. He referred to McCord's earlier testimony that he had been offered 'executive clemency' by Caulfield, and confirmed it. But Caulfield denied that he had ever spoken of the offer of clemency to anyone else except Mr. John Dean, the dismissed Presidential counsel -- who told him to make the offer to McCord of a reduced prison sentence in return for co-operation with the white House in the Senate investigation.

    Caulfield, a former New York policeman, is employed by the U.S. Treasury and has been on leave during the Seants hearings.
