"If it had been simply for their,
defense, that would have been
proper, I understand. But if it was
for the purpose of keeping them
quiet - you describe it as hush
money - that, of course, would
have been an obstruction of jus-
tice," the President explained.
HE POINTED out to Dean that
raising the money and paying it
was something that could be done
but that it was linked to clemency
and "no individual is simply going
to stay in jail because people are
taking care of his family."
"t then said that to pay clemency
was wrong," Nixon said. "I think
I can quote it directly. I said, 'It
was wrong, that is for sure."'
Now there were two major con-
flicts in the President's own words.
JAMES McCORD, one of the
original seven defendants, asked
the federal court to lift his con-
viction on grounds that Nixon
should have told what he knew!
about the hush money to U.S. Dis-
trict Judge John Sirica.
Sirica, at that time, was prepar-
ing to sentence the defendants.
Last Friday, undergoing ques-'

President was asked how Water-
gate had affected the quality of life
in America, and chose to return toI
the March 21 issue.
"The President learned for the
first time at that time that pay-
ments had been made to the de-
fendants, and let me point out that
payments had been made but-cor-
recting what may have been a
misapprehension when I spoke to
the press on March 6 in Washing-
ton-it was alleged that the pay-
ments that had been made to de-
fendants were made for the pur-
pose of keeping them still.'
