Ho is to return here Inter hi Ihe I A top Central Intelligence Agency of- ficial testified today that Presi- dent Nixon was warned less than three weeks after the Wa- tergate raid that something was amiss on the While House staff. Lt.-Gen. Vernon dep- uty director of the told the Senate Watergate committee that CIA Director Richard Mitchell named in 1 111 probe WASHINGTON John President Nixon's former political con- fidant and is under criminal investigation over his involvement in a con- liwersial anti-trust in- formed sources said today. The sources said criminal in- dictments against several per- sons will be issued soon over an alleged deal between the Nixon administration and the giant corporation International Tele- phone and Telegraph Co. Disclosure that indictments are expected soon came the day after the Senate Watergate committee made public a White House memorandum warning of the existence of documents that could directly involve President Nixon in the settlement of an anti-trust suit against ITT. iiole i Watergate MOSCOW The Soviet Union broke a long silence on the Watergate affair declaring that govern- ment officials and White House staff had sworn President Nixon was blameless. A three-paragraph report by the Englis'n-and Russian-lan- guage services of Tass said wit- nesses at the Ervin committee had absolved the president of any wrongdoing. It was the first mention of Watergate in the central press since last May when Soviet papers carried President Nixon's statement that he had not teen involved. Helms and former acting FBI Director Patrick Gray resisted pressure from the While House staff to involve their agencies in covering up the political wire- tapping. Walters said Gray finally spoke to Nixon July 1972. and said the Watergate case could not be covered that the FBI's investigation would lead quite and that Nixon should get rid of the people in- volved. recountinng the con- versation said Nixon then asked I should gtt rid of whoever is in- volved no matter hew Gray said Walters said. and Nixon then told Gray to proceed with the investigation. Senator Herman Talmadge j asked Walters if that meant Nixon was told there was something go- ing on wrong in the White Houst staff and he ought to cor- rect would be my con- Walters said. Walters said he received dif- ferent kinds of contacts from White House atfes II. R Ilalde- John D. Ehrlichman and John W. Dean. He said then the presi- dent's official inquired about the- possibility of using CIA money to pay bail and sal- aries for the Watergate bur- which Walters saw as im- proper. Walters said he adamantly refused to go threatened to and would have asked to see Nixon person- ally asked it if Dean had asked him to proceed. By he said he thought at the lime that Halde- man may have had some justi- fication for telling him June 23. to deflect the FBI's Water- gale investigations in Mexico. He said Haldeman asserted some CIA assets there might be uncovered by the 'FBI' investi- gation. Although that turned out to be Walters ssid he believed at the time that Haldt- man might know something he didn't. he was present when Haldeman gave his but didn't partici- pate in the conversation.
