The committee also received evidence about the political dirty tricks campaign carried out in 1972 by Donald Segretti under the direction of White House aides.

There is no official estimate of how much gold is in private hands in France. The newspa- per Le Monde conducted a study in February and came up with the whopping figure of tons, which it said was 7.5 percent of all the gold mined since the year 1413.

"Valid Reasons" At one meeting, Ehrlichman quoted Nixon as saying in sub- stance: 1 did not know of the breakin attempt in ad- vance, I surely recognize the valid national security reasons why it, was done." At another meeting Ehrlich- man quoted Nixon as saying "the break-in was in further- ance of national security and was fully justified by the cir- cumstances." Ehrlichman said that before the breakin, Nixon approved an "in depth investigation" of the leaking of 'the Pentagon Papers and Ellsberg. "Very Flat" "Ehrlichman's testimony is very said one liberal Democrat who 'asked not to be named. "The Ellsberg investi- gation 'was described to him (Nixon) and lie approved it it was very flat."

"I am not attempting to de- fend Dr. Kissinger if he did, indeed, tell a falsehood when he testified on his Goldwater said. "I don't know whether he did or Goldwater added.
