Dean said * he delivered at that meeting what he later called his "cancer on the|Dean's testimony, the only presidency" speech, hoping to shock.Nixon into acting. Backed by Moore Dean's testimony on that point was backed up subsequently when a white-haired presidential aide, Richard A. Moore, was called before the Senate panel.
