But the big surprise in the 2.314 pages of evidence came in a sworn statement given FBI agents on May 10, 1973, by Rob- ert Mardian, the former assis- tant attorney general and once a high official in the Nixon re- election campaign. Mardian has been indicted in the Watergate cover-up conspiracy. Mardian told how William Sullivan, Hoover's deputy at the FBI, came to him in July, 1971, and said he feared he was going to be fired because of policy dif- ferences with Hoover.
