Magruder's wife, Gail, sat in the front row of the courtroom. "I'm ashamed of what I did." Magruder said. "There were loyalties 1 had to Mr. Mitchell, particularly, to Mr. Parkinson, to Mr.. Haldeman. I had loyalties to these people. But there were loyalties 1 had to my family, to the truth, and to the fact that I had made a terrible blunder. I'm trying to correct that mistake and I'm in prison because of that." · Stein retorted that Magruder would not have told the truth "had Reisner held." "Thai's an assumption you're making," Magruder replied. "I don't think it's correct at all." Robert A. Reisner, Magruder's administrative ·assistant, will be the next witness, probably Monday.
