AT LEAST TWELVE QUESTIONS JOHN DEAN DOESN'T WANT TO ANSWER
By Roger Stone
Mr. Dean, in your new book "the Nixon Defense" you largely omit your own role in Watergate saying those who want to understand what you did should read your book "Blind Ambition." Yet when confronted under oath about discrepancies between your sworn testimony and that book you said you didn't write Blind Ambition blaming it on ghost writer Taylor Branch and later on your editor Alice Mayhew both of whom denied it. In fact you said you never even read Blind Ambition before it was published. http://www.watergate.com/John-Dean/John-Dean.aspx
You claim your book "the Nixon Defense" is based on new transcripts never before released to the public. In view of that fact that the New York Times reported your "friend" Professor Stanley Kutler was caught red handed changing the order and combining transcripts of Nixon's tapes to improve the way you look, why won't you make your secret transcripts available to an independent third party to verify their accuracy? You remember Kutler. You wrote the introduction to his book. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/01/washington/01kutler.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0
You admit that you learned that transcripts of the Watergate bugs were being sent to White House Aide Gordon Strachan on June 19, 1972 yet you told Nixon that that there was no White House connection to Watergate until March 17 1973. Why did you lie to Nixon for nine months?
You say your book The Nixon Defense is the definitive account of Watergate yet you either truncate or omit entirely your taped conversations with Nixon of March 13, 16, 17 and 20 1973 in which you can clearly be heard urging Nixon to commit crimes. What kind of lawyer urges his client to break the law? What did you mean when you told Nixon "we will win" at the end of the March 16th 1973 conversation?
How did you fail to mention in the Nixon Defense that it was you who destroyed the notebook found in Watergate burglar E. Howard Hunt's White House safe?
Jack Caufield and Anthony Ulascewicz, both decorated ex-New York Cops who worked for you in the White House say in their published memoirs that you directed them to case out the Democratic National Committee offices in the Watergate six weeks before the break-in thus proving you had prior knowledge. Why should we believe you and not them?
Pulitzer prize winning investigative journalist Clark Mollenhoff confirmed that Watergate burglar James McCord testified to the Watergate grand jury and the Senate Watergate Committee that you had prior knowledge of the Watergate break in. Why should we believe you and not him?
Jeb Stuart Magruder testified under oath in a deposition that you were among those pushing the Gemstone break-in plan and that you had prior knowledge of the break-in. Why should we believe you and not him? (The Strong Man, James Rosen, Doubleday)
You had access to the FBI’s investigation of the break-in. Why did you fail to tell the President that after repeated searches, the FBI was unable to find a working bug inside the DNC? Didn't you think it was relevant?
How did your forget to mention that you ordered your investigator John Caufiled to dangle Executive Clemency to Watergate Burglar
How much money did you pay the seventh Watergate burglar Lou Russell to hide out in Silver Spring , Maryland after the Watergate arrests? Why do amounts traced to his bank account coincide with dates and amounts that you took from White House political funds?
Why have you falsely denied your connection to mob connected high priced call girl and Madam Heidi Rikan who's call girl ring was supplying prostitutes to the Democratic National Committee? Why is you name and private phone numbers in her little black book? Didn't you really orchestrate the Watergate break-in to secure records of these connections as well as your own wife's past ? Why was Watergate burglar Eugenio Martinez arrested with the key to the desk drawer where a portfolio of photos of the available call girls were kept?
Why are parts of your wife's testimony and in exhibits in your lawsuit unsuccessful lawsuit against Saint Martin's Press - a suit that was withdrawn-not settled, sealed?
President Nixon had no prior knowledge of the break-in. So who were you protecting when you orchestrated the cover-up - the President or yourself?
