Watergate co-conspirator James W. McCord, Jr., a former CIA agent, testifies before a Senate committee that a former White House aide, John Caulfield, offered him executive clemency in exchange for his silence about spying on the Democrats on behalf of Richard Nixon's campaign.

McCord had been hired by Caulfield in January 1972"for strict, solely defensive security work at the Republican National Committee and the Committee to Re-Elect the President (CRP)." James W. McCord will be convicted for eight counts of conspiracy, burglary and wiretapping, one of the first men convicted in the Watergate criminal trial.
