his former boss: "See, I don't

Repeatedly, Nixon refers to
Watergate in terms of a bittle.
HE TOLD Colson: "I know
it's tough for, uh, for all of you,
Bob (Haldeman), John (Ehrlich-
man) and the rest.
"We're just not gonna let it
get us down. This is a battle,
it's a fight, it's war and we
just fight with a little, uh, you
know, uh, remember, uh, we'll
cut them down one of these
In the conversation with Hal-
deman, Nixon refers to a cover-I
.up, the day before he later
claimed he first learned about
'Watergate from his White
House lawyer and later chief
accuser, John Dean, in the now
facous "cancer is growing on
the presidency" discussion.
THE JURY heard Nixon tell-
ing his deputy that the White
House had to use the claim of
executive privilege to keep his,
aides from testifying before the
Senate Watergate Committee.
"Obviously no, we're just not
going to allow it (testifying)
mainly because we just can't,
can't allow that sort of thing
to come out," Nixon said.
"But then what you have to'
do is to-you gotta fight it
through the god damned courts
for a long time. You've got
the story of a cover-up, that's,
that's what's involved," he ex-
plained in the 70-minute con-
THE NEWLY released tape;
also showed that the Watergate
Committee's t o p Republican,
and presidential hopeful, Sen-
ator Howard Baker of Tennes-
see, had discussed strategy with
Nixon in advance of the hear-:
At one point, the former Pres-!
ident tells Haldeman: "The1
theory that Baker had, which
of coarse I rejected it, was in-
Nixon said Baker apparently
suggested letting "everybody
testify and he said choke
the goddamned thing for a week,
an'd after that the people will be
bored to death."
THE PROSECUTOR said he
plans to play a total of 19 tapes
in the next few days, eight of
which have never been released
before. Nine tapes of presiden-
tial conversations have already
been played during the last
eight weeks of the trial.
Later, the prosecutors played
a fourth conversation, recorded
March 22, between Haldeman
and Nixon talking about cash
paid to the defendants, includ-
ing Haldeman's acknowledge-
ment that White House funds
"Why is that obstruction of
justice anyway?" Haldeman
"WELL, particularly w h e n
it's not to sip champagne," Nix-
on seemingly agrees.
"Goddamn it, the people ,are
in jail, it's only right for people
to raise the money for them ..
I think we ought to. There's got
to be funds . . . I don't mean
to be blackmailed by Hunt, that
goes too far, but we're taking
care of these people that are
in jail," the former President
When Haldeman turns to
Hunt's knowledge of "sleazy
things" done for the White
House, the subject of a pardon
is talked about, the day before
the burglar was to be sen-
Haldeman said: "But if Hunt
thinks that's what he's been
"He'll shut up now," the
Haldeman counters with:
"Hell, he may shut up now
but what, what do you do at
Christmas time?," when par-
dons are traditionally granted
Nixon then tells Haldeman to
find out what Colson has
promised Hunt, who testified at
the trial earlier that the Nixon
aide had promised a pardon.
The former Attorney General
was expressionless as he listen-
ed to a section of the tape in
which Haldeman tells Nixon:
"Mitchell will find a way out.
You have to let them get to
him, I think."
Nixon's one-time top aide
sided with Dean's play to draw
a circle of wagons around the
White House" and pin the blame
on Mitchell arguing "that it
forces Mitchell to take te re-
sponsibility rather than allow-
ing Mitchell to hide under the
blanket of the White House,
which he's been doing."
