SENATOR BAKER: Was it also your impression that Mr. Ehrlichman was the one who set and directed your assignment responsibilities and that Mr. Caulfield simply carried those instructions, or that Mr. Caulfield chose your assignments and responsibility?
A. I would say both, that Mr. Ehrlichman would give some assignments, and possibly other people in the White House, to Mr. Caulfield and probably to me.
Q. Both Ehrlichman and Caulfield gave you assignments from time to time. You are under the impression that Ehrlichman was the final authority in that respect and you went forward with these projects?
A. Yes sir, except Mr. Ehrlichman never gave me an assignment personally.
SENATOR WEICKER: Now I would like to get into the general nature of the other investigations, which you conducted. Is it a fact that some of these investigations were background checks on individuals intended to develop questionable facets of the personal lives of these individuals?
A. That is correct, sir.
Q. Now, when we are talking about questionable facets would these include sexual habits?
A. These were allegations and that might be included in the category, I guess.
Q. Drinking habits?
A. Yes, sir.
Q. Personal social activities?
A. Yes, sir.
Q. Is there any other type of activity which was investigated relative to any corporation or individual?
A. It would depend on the allegation. There wasn’t a complete investigation on any one person with all those titles involved. Sometimes it was an allegation of drinking and I might just keep my investigation to that particular category.
Q. Now, can we categorize in a general way those individuals or corporations that were investigated by you? Were political opponents of the President so investigated ?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
