Ben-Veniste presented t h e
now-familiar story of the cover-
up in a courtroom jammed with
reporters, about 35 spectators
and some relatives of the de-
fendants. He spoke for just over
three hours, describing the
cover-up in short, simple sen-
tences, describing hundreds of
meetings, phone calls and ac-
tions which comprise the com-
plicated conspiracy case.
Among the few new develop-
ments was the assertion that
former White House aide Rich-
ard Moore, who attended one
of the crucial meetings of the
cover-up, waspressured to for-
get what he remembered about
how some payoffs to the orig-
inal Watergate defendants were
BEN-VENISTE quoted Halde-
man as telling Nixon that
Moore's memory on the Feb-

Calif., "has become feeble be-

Moore had been prepared to

was $25,000 Ben-Veniste said
was obtained from Nixon's
friend, Charles "Bebe" Rebozo,
for use in paying the original
Watergate burglars.
IN HIS opening statement to
the jury, Ben-Veniste said de-
fendant and former Atty. Gen.
John Mitchell dispatched an
emissary to Florida to pick up
$50,000 in cash from Rebozo.
The prosecutor said the money
was picked up by Nixon re-

It was not clear if Rebozo
knew how the money was to be
FOR MORE than a year, the
prosecutor told the jury, the
defendants illegally tried to
write off the original Watergate
burglars as men "off on a lark
of their own."
He said they failed because
too many of those running the
cover-up knew about the plan
for illegal wiretapping and bur-
glary in advance.
