Nixon Rules on Testimony Raise Disturbing Questions Gqlesburg Re^ister*Mail, Gdlesburg, HI. Wednesd^ Mdy 9, 197323 By NORMAN KEMPSTfcR WASHINGTON (U P1) President Nixon has issued new rules for "executive privilege" which raise disturbing questions about his own declarations that he was misled (or nine months about the gravity ot the Watergate scandal. Washington Window If the rules mean what they appear to say, they could block the FBI and a federal grand jury from asking present or former White House staff members if they ever discussed the Watergate with the Presl* dent. Without the testimony of staff members concerning discussions with the President, it is difficult to see how the grand jury could ever determine with certainty if Nhton knew of the bugging of the Democratic national headquarters or the subsequent effort to cover it up. The guideline, prepared by White House Counsel Leonard Garment, provides: Official Duties "Past and present members of the President's staff ques- FORMES GRAND At MICHIGAN U.S. Govt. Inspect.

Sam Ervin, D-N.C), of a grand jury should invoke the privilege only in connection with conversations with the President, conversations among them' selves involving communication with the President and as to presidential papers. Presidential papers are all documents produced or received by the President or any member of the White House staff in connection with his official duties." White House spokesmen argue the rules are not intended as a bar to testimony by anyone. They stress the preamble of the guidelines: "The President desires that the invocation of executive privilege be held to a minimum.' No one will know just how the guidelines will operate until the first present or former staffer invokes privilege. In the meantime, the speculation remains. Would Raise Eyebrows Critics say Nixon has expanded executive privilege far beyond its scope in previous administrations. But even if the doctrine were firmly rooted in history, its use in the Watergate case would raise eyebrows. In his televised address to the nation April 30, Nixon said he first learned from news, reports of the Watergate bugging. He said he was misled by members of his staff for nine months. The guidelines on executive privilege would appear to permit a present or former presidential staff member to refuse to tell the grand jury or the Ervin committee if he ever discussed the Watergate with the President before March. If the President did not know anything about the crime or the coverup, it would appear to be prudent for him to instruct his aides to say so. As Nixon said in his Watergate speech: "In matters as sensitive as guard ing the integrity of our democratic process, it is essential not only that rigorous legal and ethical standards be observed, but also that the public, you, have total Confidence that they are both being observed and endorsed by those in authority ..."
