it's b nice play the decision is was it i think you have taken measures many companies
testimony those but that's sort of the point where i just threw him for not knowing what the people on the committee were going to separate and then political meetings that are shown a while there were discussions about appointing a commission to tackle the warren commission to investigate this matter and special prosecutors and things like that i don't want to leave the impression that it was no surprise and information getting to know
no no oh oh yes sir mclean says potentially close do with anything
but it's true you have to support it and to the extent that i can help women and a consumable i'd be delighted to do so and as this was exactly the same conversation as punishment that's it
the babies and cicely waiting to see if there's some possibility of that other than some misguided councilman a piece of paper from which should cross examination is to be made a meeting you yes it was council this is tape of a conversation
there is a recourse question of the mind and the meeting was a quick run through the recollections of the individuals as to what was discussed fire before a grand jury no that was not that was not the basis of a whole lot of the election was most days it wasn't recollection of what had happened and how it will have the effect of misdemeanors it has a year to go back home and said they're going on one meeting when actually had been through and so for that
was in the question of holding the line on the question of what actually happened recently went to testify what your position teenagers in mississippi and he's right mr dean what happened and obviously is i think must have been justified don't want to discuss the matter all right here first served on the council and was looking after mass shootings venus
eighteen min well seventy in nineteen seventy eight mr dean was there any discussion about that
and i said right white house's response to this committee and i think that was prompted at least that was my understanding of time it was not the fact the president was pressed on the question of its second year with respect to the possibilities these so called white house horrors archie efforts to keep a little time
in conversation and consensus that in one person's read you know if i understand your question that is kirk all the testimony of this is the united states we're going to place bets
so far with that statement it's not i need it that's correct it's based solely on my association with the president have not conversations on either for the questions to pay so the final attempt to determine the president's knowledge of the watergate activity sandbags has concluded that his examination of alertness other senator spoke for lunch we're going to take a short ride public television's coverage of the senate watergate hearings will continue actor author station
identification on average coverage of these hearings is provided as a public service by the member stations of pbs public broadcasting service fb to
pay fb to pay
and in fact continues its coverage of hearings by the senate select committee on presidential campaign activities you again correspondent jim lehrer as we go back to the senate caucus room now minority counsel fred thompson is about as john mitchell about government intelligence operations and then
i wouldn't say it's time for an interview on the consideration of interagency a violation of vision committee in the meantime avid fans nowadays and organization so the intelligence community we've seen orders where are
you in anticipation of violent acts in connection with vermont's version of other times just for violent acts as lazar mr lee is a very funny way implementation emergency evaluation commission take personnel from their intelligence gathering there
is but women who had one where they sort of exchange ideas and of course a very wait what intelligence or the government was a great deal of the collection of intelligence committee evaluation and dissemination like a great deal forget it it uses a way that and to find out that you were many events that happened in this the capital such events that if we have an appropriate intelligence in advance we might've been able to prohibit i know the connection
with the demonstrations that we have in washington while navy ninety percent of those people and we did that was the basis and it was nov twenty four nineteen seventy one
well job descriptions that kind of information or intelligence committees any discussion you know
it is this report and he'd meeting place in which literally these intelligence activities workers are being who i understand they have meetings may have made reference to the fact that he was gathering mr crowell yes sir thank you working on that scale program or so of december
nine nineteen seventy one and there at the anniversary series of meetings all places the americans mr chris yes because yes

that's right let's listen thank you with this thing vintage and speculation a little bit more fire with people and person
as this is the case they are people's reputations if you go back to the testimony of mr dean conversations that it had mr mcgregor no yes well where on a number of areas like you're going into various magruder jill was having personally mr ryan poll
mr dean that margaret had told him and then of course there are the statements that the grooves of telephone calls from hell's heart i think that those areas of testimony that would be a great source of information for my conjecture you know he's a billionaire i have no way
imagination billy beane anyway our relationship
at times that's it you were a pleasure with that the nature of that to protect the open spot and that is no we don't know
