Watergate Victory: Mardian's Appeal
The appeal of the conviction of Robert Mardian in the Watergate conspiracy trial before Judge John Sirica is the topic of this intriguing book. Written by a member of the defense team that prepared Mardian's appeal, Watergate Victory provides a unique defense perspective on the Watergate case while also discussing legal issues that were central to the Watergate case but which have largely been ignored. Issues that are analyzed include the admissibility of the White House tapes at the trial, the ethical obligation of the attorneys for the Committee to Re-elect the President to keep confidential what they had learned from Gordon Liddy, and issues involving multiple conspiracies, variance and severance.
