1
00:00:06,000 --> 00:00:09,520
First time he's late.

2
00:00:19,760 --> 00:00:21,560
Mr. President!

3
00:00:37,600 --> 00:00:39,960
Morning.

4
00:01:15,760 --> 00:01:17,480
Mr. President.

5
00:01:17,520 --> 00:01:20,000
Mr. Frost.

6
00:01:33,080 --> 00:01:37,000
Thirty seconds
to tape roll!

7
00:01:37,680 --> 00:01:41,480
Thirty seconds.
Settling. Settle.

8
00:01:51,160 --> 00:01:56,800
Well, if today's session is anything like
our phone call, it should be explosive.

9
00:01:58,120 --> 00:02:00,440
What phone call?

10
00:02:00,480 --> 00:02:04,240
The phone call
to my hotel room.

11
00:02:05,440 --> 00:02:11,080
David, starting on camera three
in four, three, two and...

12
00:02:17,000 --> 00:02:20,320
Now, looking back
on your final year in office,

13
00:02:20,360 --> 00:02:22,520
do you feel you ever
obstructed justice

14
00:02:22,560 --> 00:02:25,800
or were part of a conspiracy to cover up
or obstruct justice?

15
00:02:25,840 --> 00:02:27,760
No.

16
00:02:27,800 --> 00:02:32,480
And I'm interested that you used the term
"obstruction of justice. "

17
00:02:32,520 --> 00:02:34,600
Now, you perhaps have not
read the statute

18
00:02:34,640 --> 00:02:36,720
with regard to
the obstruction of justice.

19
00:02:36,760 --> 00:02:39,240
As it happens, I have.

20
00:02:39,280 --> 00:02:44,520
You have, you say? Well, then, you'll
know it doesn't just require an act.

21
00:02:45,680 --> 00:02:49,160
It requires a specific
corrupt motive.

22
00:02:49,200 --> 00:02:52,440
And in this case, I didn't have
a corrupt motive.

23
00:02:52,480 --> 00:02:55,880
What I was doing was in the interests
of political containment.

24
00:02:55,920 --> 00:02:58,080
Be that as it may,
the direct consequences

25
00:02:58,120 --> 00:02:59,680
of your actions
would have been

26
00:02:59,720 --> 00:03:01,320
that two of
the convicted burglars

27
00:03:01,360 --> 00:03:03,240
would have escaped
criminal prosecution.

28
00:03:03,280 --> 00:03:06,480
Now, how can that not be a cover-up or
obstruction of justice?

29
00:03:06,520 --> 00:03:08,240
Well, I think
the record shows, Mr. Frost,

30
00:03:08,280 --> 00:03:11,400
that far from
obstructing justice,

31
00:03:11,440 --> 00:03:13,880
I was actively
facilitating it.

32
00:03:13,920 --> 00:03:18,160
When Pat Gray of the FBI
telephoned me, this was July 6,

33
00:03:18,200 --> 00:03:21,520
I said, "Pat, you go right ahead
with your investigation. "

34
00:03:21,560 --> 00:03:23,720
That's hardly what you'd call
obstructing justice.

35
00:03:23,760 --> 00:03:26,800
Well, that may be,
but for two weeks prior to July 6,

36
00:03:26,840 --> 00:03:28,320
we now know that
you were desperately

37
00:03:28,360 --> 00:03:29,760
trying to contain or block
the investigation.

38
00:03:29,800 --> 00:03:31,440
No, no. Hang on
a minute there. I wasn't...

39
00:03:31,480 --> 00:03:33,240
No, no. Obstruction of justice
is obstruction of justice,

40
00:03:33,280 --> 00:03:35,120
whether it's for
a minute or five minutes,

41
00:03:35,160 --> 00:03:37,160
and it's no defense
to say that your plan failed.

42
00:03:37,200 --> 00:03:39,880
I mean, if I try to rob a bank and fail,
that's no defense.

43
00:03:39,920 --> 00:03:41,320
I still tried
to rob the bank.

44
00:03:41,360 --> 00:03:43,960
