Haldeman well if they will but then were relying on

Haldeman: Well, if they will. But then we’re relying on more and more people all the time. That’s the problem. And ah, they’ll stop if we could, if we take this other step. Nixon: All right. Fine. Haldeman: And, and they seem to feel the thing to do is get them to stop? Nixon: Right, fine. Haldeman: They say the only way to do that is from White House instructions. And it’s got to be to Helms and, ah, what’s his name…? Walters. Nixon: Walters. Haldeman: And the proposal would be that Ehrlichman (coughs) and I call them in Nixon: All right, fine.

Haldeman: and say, ah… Nixon: How do you call him in, I mean you just, well, we protected Helms from one hell of a lot of things. Haldeman: That’s what Ehrlichman says. Nixon: Of course, this is a, this is a Hunt, you will-that will uncover a lot of things. You open that scab there’s a hell of a lot of things and that we just feel that it would be very detrimental to have this thing go any further. This involves these Cubans, Hunt, and a lot of hanky-panky that we have nothing to do with ourselves. Well what the hell, did Mitchell know about this thing to any much of a degree. Haldeman: I think so. I don ‘t think he knew the details, but I think he knew. Nixon: He didn’t know how it was going to be handled though, with Dahlberg and the Texans and so forth? Well who was the asshole that did? (Unintelligible) Is it Liddy? Is that the fellow? He must be a little nuts. Haldeman: He is. Nixon: I mean he just isn’t well screwed on is he? Isn’t that the problem? Haldeman: No, but he was under pressure, apparently, to get more information, and as he got more pressure, he pushed the people harder to move harder on… Nixon: Pressure from Mitchell? Haldeman: Apparently. Nixon: Oh, Mitchell, Mitchell was at the point that you made on this, that exactly what I need from you is on the– Haldeman: Gemstone, yeah. Nixon: All right, fine, I understand it all. We won’t second-guess Mitchell and the rest. Thank God it wasn’t Colson. Haldeman: The FBI interviewed Colson yesterday. They determined that would be a good thing to do. Nixon: Um hum. Haldeman: Ah, to have him take a… Nixon: Um hum. Haldeman: An interrogation, which he did, and that, the FBI guys working the case had concluded that there were one or two possibilities, one, that this was a White House, they don’t think that there is anything at the Election Committee, they think it was either a White House operation and they had some obscure reasons for it, non political,… Nixon: Uh huh.

Haldeman: or it was a… Nixon: Cuban thing- Haldeman: Cubans and the CIA. And after their interrogation of, of… Nixon: Colson. Haldeman: Colson, yesterday, they concluded it was not the White House, but are now convinced it is a CIA thing, so the CIA turn off would… Nixon: Well, not sure of their analysis, I’m not going to get that involved. I’m (unintelligible). Haldeman: No, sir. We don’t want you to.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
