  • Description

    THE INDICTMENTS HANDED DOWN FRIDAY INDICATE H.R. HALDEMAN LIED ABOUT A 1,000,000 DOLLAR FUND TO BUY OF THE WATERGATE DEFENDANTS, AND THUS RATHER DIRECTLY ACCUSE PRESIDENT NIXON OF THE SAME ACT. ON JULY 30, 1973 HALDEMAN APPEARED BEFORE THE SENATE WATERGATE COMMITTEE AND UNDER CLOSE QUESTIONING BY SENATOR HOWARD BAKER CLAIMED THAT HE MET WITH PRESIDENT NIXON ON 21 MARCH AND DISCUSSED RAISING A ???AYOFF FUND. HALDEMAN TESTIFIED THAT NIXON HAD SAID-THERE WOULD BE NO PROBLEM IN RAISING THE MONEY, BUT TO DO SO WOULD BE WRONG. HALDEMAN ADDED THE WHITE HOUSE TAPES, WHICH ARE NOW ERASED, CLEARLY SUPPORTED HIS STATEMENT. IN AN AUGUST 22 NEWS CONF. PRESIDENT NIXON ANSWERED A QUESTION ABOUT THE 21 MARCH MEETING SAYING THAT HALDEMAN'S TESTIMONY WAS ACCURATE....THAT HE (NIXON) TOLD JOHN DEAN TOEEEE THEN TO DO SUCH A THING +WRONG, WONT WORK. WE'VE GOT TO GET TOGETHER AND GET THIS SOTREEEE STORY OUT.+ TODAY (1 MARCH 1974) THE INDICTMENTS RETURNED CHARGED HALDEMAN WITH LYING IN HIS TESTIMONY AND THUS STRONGLY IMPLIED THAT NIXON LIED AS WELL.
