(Studio) White House cnsl. Richard Moore goes before Senate Watergate committee
REPORTER: Roger Mudd

(Capitol Hill) Moore urged to testify to rebut John Dean's testimony against Nixon. [MOORE - says at no mtgs. during spring 1973 attended by Dean, President and Moore, did anyone mention Watergate cover-up or have knowledge of anyone involved from White House in Watergate affair.] Moore shows forgetfulness and confusion when questioned by assistant cnsl. Terry Lenzer. [LENZER - asks if rereading document refreshes Moore's recollection.] [MOORE - shows confusion on mtgs. with President] 1 revelation by Moore indicates President knew about Hunt-Liddy operation against Daniel Ellsberg. President apparently told John Dean Ellsberg probe needed because FBI director J. Edgar Hoover was friend of Ellsberg's father-in-law. Dean had just told President John Ehrlichman involved in Ellsberg case.
