St. Clair, the President's chief Wa- lergate lawyer, and it argued t h a t "all of the evidence available to the committee makes it clear the President did not have prior knowledge of the plan to break into the DN'C (Democratic National Committee) and that no subpoena for the April 4, 1972, conversation is warranted." On April 11. the committee voted 33 to 3 to subpoena tapes of 42 presidential conversations. Instead of supplying the tapes, the President gave the committee and also made public edited transcripts of 44 of his conversations. He said he would not turn over any more Watergate tapes. The committee then voted to n o t i f y the President he had failed to comply with the sub- na but took no further ac:ion to seek enforcement, On April 19. in a letter to St. Clair, Doar asked Tor tapes of 141 conversations including 76 dealing with Watergate. It was from that list that the latest demand was drawn. In material accompanying that letter Doar noted that there were two meetings April 4. al which the subject of the so-called Liddy plan may have come up. According to testimony by former Nixon campaign aide Jeb Stuart Magruder before the Senate Watergate committee, former Atty. Gen. John N. Mitchell approved the political intelligence plan March 30, 1972, at a meeting in Key Biscayne, Fla.
