He also said he was told former Attorney General John Mitchell approved the plan, personally choosing three possible targets of the break-in Former presidential chief of staff Haldeman said last summer when Nixon said that Watergate did not involve the people around him, the President had based it on secondhand assurances from Dean, Asked Repeatedly Dean was asked repeatedly who was responsible for the break-in, Haldeman said, and repeately said no one in the White House had anything to do with it. The sworn depositions from Ehrlichman and Haldeman were submitted in connection with the Democratic party's 4 million civil damage suit against the Corrknittee to Reelect the President.
