(Studio) White House cnsl. Richard Moore conts. testimony before Senate Watergate committee
REPORTER: Roger Mudd
(Capitol Hill) Moore gives conflicting testimony with regard to money supposedly used as payoff for Watergate defendants. [MOORE - says Dean asked President about $1 million for defendants. President says money isn't the point. Truth to come out anyway.] [Chief minority cnsl. Fred THOMPSON - asks for meeting descriptions with President after bribe money discussed.] [MOORE - says met with President on April 20. Urged President to take action and let American people know about Watergate before investigation put President in middle of cover-up.] [Chairperson Sam ERVIN - asks if President isn't best person to explain action between June `72 and March `73.] Moore agrees. [ERVIN - asks if media coverage of campaign committee charges aroused suspicion with regard to finance committee ] Moore admits it did. Moore's testimony doesn't convince Senate committee that President couldn't or shouldn't have known about Watergate scandal.
