Panelists included Richard A. Azzaro, Law Clerk to Judge John Sirica; Richard Ben-Veniste, Chief, Watergate Special Prosecutor’s Watergate Task Force; John W. Dean, Counsel to President Nixon and Lead Government Witness in the Watergate Cover-Up Trial; Rufus Edmisten, Deputy Chief Counsel, Senate Watergate Committee; Earl J. Silbert, Watergate Prosecutor as U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia; and Barry Sussman, Special Watergate Editor, The Washington Post. Carl Stern, who covered Watergate for NBC, moderated the lively discussion.
