VIEWPOINT E. H. Hunt is Watergate key An influential political source rays the US. attorney's «flfc« bent b today "far attend of everybody" in the Watergate case — meaning it has compiled a mountain of evidence sufficient to engage three at Ivor grand Juries Instead of the singk; one presently involved The key figure hi all this is a man already convicted of participation in the June. mx. Watergate break-in. E. Howard Hunt, former CIA agent, tie has been called m on at least eight separate occasions. Hunt is Ut&tag under a grant of immunity, (laving stood at the very center of the Niton administration's espionage- sabotage plan against the Democrats, he is uniquely placed to implicate all the other phndpah in that undertaking ~ including some who so far are skillfully escaping serious public attention. Its taken for granted, o( course, that the sitting gram! jury ultimately will hand (town other indictments. But most of these will likely be for obstruct** of justice and perjury in coonettxm with the elaborate While House cover-up of Watergate linkage to the administration. Soengutfed in IrsUnxwy and documents that it cannot begin to sift alt its materials thoroughly, the U.& attorney's office probably is not the place to look for a ftrfler unfolding of the espionage-sabotage story. furthermore, some of the documented behavior under that plan may be merely unethical rather than illegal. Thus, my source suggests that the Ervtn investigating committee may be the forum for the complete irihng of the story, if K ts em to be loW at aB RAY CRQMLEY For the moment, interested Americana (far from all of them) wait impatiently (or the testimony before the Krvm committee of ex-Nixon aides John Dean and Jcb Stuart Magruder It is understandable enough, sine* they, if talking under pants of Immunity that realty open them up. can start a chain of contacts which may establish once and for all what degree of involvement the President had in the Watergate cover-up and perhaps other aspects. Let's agree, again, that detcrmuung the President's petition b crucial tnfornulkw for the nation. Nevertheless, the whole thing will have an aspect of big current* spinning around a hollow center if the American people do not find out the full potential dimensions nod the kind of seamy raw material which seem to be the essence of this unbdievably ugly endeavor. That must bring the Krrin commuter inescapably to Html. It will surely ffH to him, though probably not for many weeks- When it doe*, his testimony given under immunity will (assuming it matches what he b thought to have toW the grand jury) blow the lid.
