golson or anybody else for information on and ten years when was this in late july of nineteen seventy one and now the true of that you know too well you have this interview with the sky yesterday and how to obtain care through seven sons services committee i were able to materials that would permit to disguise himself she had been given information effectively
i was believed to have information reflecting on favorably upon certain members of the kennedy political groupings this having been based on the experience of an individual in clifton the man who had been an official part of the camp the entourage throwing me nineteen sixty the question the prophet and that you could undertake to illicit information from him for an interview with the proposal we haven't ms carlson known as
mia whether another provided i said i would not allow internet internet searches the scariest recommendations might be available through it or the secret service or the fbi representative at the white house in question indicated that veterans too sensitive to other researchers or the fbi and recommendations i turn the pages out of the question that the person than the earth in other operations today i said that and they're not as expensive and the second question said to me
thank you the question that the agency for setting up in general question at cia headquarters of the interview mr information and
in the land it's been leaking the question what answers before the last question there's about climate
convention in late november nineteen seventy one most of that he approached me saying that the establishment in his trinity was about to become its chief and mr that in terms of an operation i was this planet and yes sir do you understand my understanding was as follows that the plant have been proposed and the required by the attorney general of the united states mr mitchell that masters salute and leveraging third then cancel the president united states and job
creation now did you in fact i did with the exception of that portion of the plan show dealt with electronic surveillance now for the reasons a little ample reasons nation of the land and the little baby twenty seven nineteen seventy two and seventy us about oh that you would be you know i don't
because of the increased in montana has been investigating that i would be able to get far less time to mr carlson then i have been in the past he said that he understood this and in the end if they were our planet and we're going to let you know yes on one occasion and it must have been in conjunction with this particular interview me in fact it's if you're going to give me but mostly i told him
the situation and fans have that concern i have patients annie i mean imagine this you know the conversation twenty seven nineteen seventy two
i am no no mr goldstein the
pain is both simon i understand in the nineteen seventies i know i know my god no and
no alice doesn't live within seven to nineteen seventy eight the us side is that it was likely the signs this affidavit was there that's to me a federal courthouse by my attorney might then attorney mr reginald the mine before a federal grand jury that i'm a lot like mr bergman and again and then increasing the affidavit and platform from the speaker's office and they don't want a different be signing and kevin and i did in fact signing up today i know this ominous sign just given mr paulson didn't want to be known as the movie that doesn't get
any noes are you explain why because the information that was just in january when that i possessed in january only two over it had nothing to do with the specific a break in at the democratic national headquarters and this was a record or a banner are happy that they get to see how or is it not true that romney's goal it's
been if beak the place but there's been ms
bruce became the part of the people and in terms of the accuracy a bit of danish let me say a customer have given second recession in fact victor on occasion when i introduce you to it and depression for the first time following that particular meeting mister mister early seventies isn't it for me
these interrogations testimony two stayed in the family and the patient so the question is and visibility
i mean that's and he's right now all right there's
a little bit of confusion about it you can it's been nice but the police by the state
most of the testimony recently gave executives and i and it was so it was clear to me before you undertook this last question that he didn't quite clearly understand what you're driving at and i think this is your first question well that's i mean as quickly as we can go on to something else i think what you're asking him is whether the past few weeks he had added to his explanation of his conversations with mr cole so the facts that in january nineteen seventy two there was a conversation between him and mr khalsa which indicated that mr carlson had knowledge of gemstone yes
and i think we can answer that right and the question was at that i put to you is is this the first time us now and he told me that you and for many other messages including the grand jury that is present serving about that information now the committee what appears to be contradictory testimony and executive session and now what this committee has to mr paulson's plan olive general repeated questioning they've been saying for years
these sessions development work back of my mind for the first time the phone conversation that i am genuinely of that cause and that there is no as against his testimony info again kind of the mindset that this is in an executive session less and i was pointing out and the edges that that's that mr khan had not given his testimony and variations and not just given as an explanation
as it is now and would you believe it as recent testimony before this committee i'm renee montagne well you know now it is the best in january as well you were telling us for years
rob lowe where it that mr romney is not giving us information for the first time and only recently gave it to us in executive session singing this is it is there any indication the polls anyway you're going to play and it's a desert my legal position easily the most does not
depend upon his because his knowledge and the knowledge at the time i have but visibility is invisible what reason to get you indicated to me that first of all he had made chuck colson was a man who got things done he is on the desert for a substantial physician in the fourth generation libby's city michel my pleasure
and so it will have another of our bases we're on which he could and so i did it was that you are right he's been a nice beat testimony i went into the back of the room
sat by quietly can lead him to a magazine a conversion of girls are the journey for him how many ways and the united nations that it he said quote i think i may have done us your interpretation of that message i realize that he had been speaking with the question about the operation why oh why do i think that because that was the only concept that is a concern which he could have done any good i know
now worried that i could only have been the gemstones concept those young man was an insulation out there you're welcome you're certainly dealing with oh nice
if you ask me as an accommodation it is we're waiting today in the hotel i gathered enough to it also inspired by the prime time we have no difficulty recognizing each other origination what form an indication that i have been a look into their schedules but action
policy statements which are that the median value i'd say i hadn't seen in many years my understanding was the money used to go to the faithfully photographic services that have been made virgin isn't it you know it is it is very
very true working is first a policy papers working papers their schedules the most listener contribution contributors of political campaign ad i did the same way haitian government workers how he prepared for initially by providing me with a floor that rahm when i introduce
mr gregory ended in april not for the first time to satisfy his own particular tactical interests mr gregory took mr mccourt through the mcgovern headquarters they continued as it were doing is between themselves and can actually electronic surveillance attempt this is yours you know it's

family that he favors really affected her publisher named hank greenspan had information which must be out of the lower and it was the content that this information the company's finances after his initial reaction may inform me that ineffective unable to confirm the rumor that he had heard from another source of this rumor and approve this position and the participants or so i'm sure
rose discussion nevada political situation litigation perhaps to arrest the prime minister he's the physician political making use of the greenspan years the allegation being judges and so this came into this discussion with knowing that suggested that there was a commonality of interests
