Senate Probers Want Flanigan, Kleindienst Back Before Panel By TOM SEPPY Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (API _ Two Senate Judiciary Committee members are demanding the recall of Acting Atly. Gen. Richard 0. Kieindiensl ani presidential aide Peter M. Flanigan for questioning about an apparent conflict in statements they made regarding settlement of an ITT antitrust case. Democratic Sens. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts and John V. Tunncy of California .said in statements Monday the additional testimony is necessary to discuss Flanigan's statement lliat he talked to K'eindiensl about the case and Klcindienst's statement that he didn't discuss antitrust matters with White Iloufe officials. The apparent conflict developed Monday when Flanigan answered two written questions submitted by the committee requesting information on Flanigan's discussions with International Telephone Telegraph Corp. officers and Justice Department nfficia's about a proposed settlement of the antitrust case. Flanigan said he met on June 29, 1971, with Felix G. Rolialyn, an ITT director, who "indicated his belief that the proposal was so tough as to be unacceptable to the company that the company intended to. continue the suits in court." Flanigan said Rohalyn told him the corporation would reject the settlement proposed by Richard W. McLaren, then assistant attorney general for antitrust matters, and would appeal the suits to the Supreme Court. A few days later, Flanigan said, he met with Kleindienst and "passed on to him the Rohatyn comment and my reply." Flanigan said Kleindienst's reply was the same as his own: McLaren was handling the case alone. In testimony before the committee March 2, Kleindienst said he could not. recall discussing the case with anyone from the White House. "II is possible that some casual reference could have been made In it," Kieindiensl testified, "but so far as discussing any poilrv or any espect of the case, I did not and I do not discuss antitrust matters there."
