TRIfiUNfi Thurs., April 13, 1972 Kleindienst Nomin at ion May Be in Trouble By TOM SEPPY Associated Press Wrilcr WASHINGTON (AP) - Some Senate Democrats say the nom- a t i o n of Richard G. Klcindienst (o he attorney general may Ix; in trouble because the While House won't permit staffer Peler Khinigan to testify in the controversy surrounding International Telephone Telegraph Corp. The latest to join the growing opposition to the nomination is Sen. Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia, the assistant Democratic leader and a member ot the committee. Sources close to Byrd said Wednesday he would vote a g a i n s t Kleindicnsl unless Flanigan testifies in the Judiciary Committee on bis role in the out-of-court scllle- linenl of three a n t i t r u s t suits against ITT, one of the biggest corporations in the United States. Byrd told newsmen he would be "influenced liy either Flani- giin's refusal to appear before f h e committee or the refusal of liis sujXMiors to let him testify. John W. Dean I I I , counsel (o !President Nixon, in a letter to ' t h e c o m m i t t e e released : Wednesday, said the White |House was refusing an i n f o r m a l telephone request for Flanigan to appear. Subsequently, the committee rejected lour Democratic efforts to have Klanigan, Nixon's liaison with the business community, called to testify. Flanigan has become a key figure in the ITT controversy because lie recruited a New York financial analyst lo^pre- parc a report which Justice Department officials say was a major factor in convincing them to abandon prosecution of the ITT antitrust case. Byrd joined another in- f l u e n t i a l Democrat in his opposition (o Klcindiensl's nomination--Sen. Sam J. Ervin Jr., D-N.C., sponsor of Hie first two motions to subpoena Klanigan. "I have reached fhe point where I expect to oppose any consideration of the Kloindiensl {nomination," said Ervin after the committee rejected in closed session bis motions to summon Klanigan. I will not even vole la con skier the nomination unless Klanigan comes down to testify," be said. The first rejected proposal by Ervin called for subpoenas to Flanigan, other White House aides and Justice Department officials mentioned during the bearings. His second called only for Klanigan and Nixon aide William Timrnons. The third unsuccessful r ion, submitted by Sen. Qucntin N. Burdick, D-N.D., called for suhpocnaing Flanigan only. Each was defeated G to 6 ilong partisan lines with East and abstaining. A majority vote is required for approval. Finally, Byrd offered a compromise thai would have required Flanigan's testimony at a closed hearing. It was de "catcd 9 to 4 with Eastland joining Byrd and Sens. John Tunney, D-Calif., and Marlow Cook, R-Ky., in the minority. Voting against were Ervin, Philip A. Hart, D-Mich., Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., and Republicans Roman L. llruska of Nebraska, Hugh Scott of Pa., Hiram L. Fong of Hawaii, Edward J. Gurney of Florida, and Charles McC. Mathias of Maryland. Kennedy said he believes a move to call Flanigan will be made again before the com mitlce has to end the current phase of the hearings next Thursday. Ervin said he will act at noxl Thursday's meeting to have the committee recommend no Senate action on the Kleindicnsl nomination. The nomination was approved unanimously by the committee in late February but has been held up because of the hearings. Klcindienst asked fhe committee to reopen the heav- ngs after columnist Jack Anderson published a memo link- ng the antitrust settlement vith ITT's commitment to un- Icrwrite part of San Diego's financial obligation to get next summer's Republican National Conveniion. In other actions Wednesday, [he committee: --Voted to have two Denver licart specialists examine Dita Beard, the ailing ITT lobbyist who allegedly wrote the Anderson memo, to determine wheth er she is well enough to testify for a second time. --Heard John Ryan, No. 2 man in ITT's Washington office, describe his meetings with Kleindienst which resulted in the conglomerate's making a financial presentation to Justice D e p a r t m e n t officials that played an important part in the settlement. Ryan said no one told him to approach Kleindienst, a neighbor in McLean, Va., at a social affair, but said he felt he was well-armed w i t h information to make a strong bid. lie said Kleindienst told him "his door at the Justice Department is always open." -Took testimony from Lawrence Walsh, an outside counse' for ITT, who had written a letter and memorandum to Kleindienst outlining Hie economic consequences that could result If ITT had to divesl tli« companies involved in the Department's antitrust action. · 34 in Lamar Testify Against Phone Increases LAMAH, Colo.
