An Ehrlichman day.
Still in California, he meets first with Paul O'Brien, the Committee to Re-elect lawyer who has been working with Dean and involved in the hush money. O'Brien is in California to tell the president what's been going on (not realizing that Nixon, of course, is fully informed of everything). Ehrlichman spends two hours listening to O'Brien tell him what's been going on -- and to his analysis that the big problem is John Dean, the coordinator of the payments.
Next, a two plus hour meeting with Haldeman and Nixon.
Later, Ehrlichman meets with a new candidate for FBI director to replace Pay Gray, who Haldeman calls to tell him that he's done, although there's nothing public yet. The new candidate is a district judge -- who right then happens to be presiding, of all things, over the trial of Daniel Ellsberg for stealing and leaking the Pentagon Papers. Indeed, Ehrlichman apparently offers Judge Byrne the FBI job, either blind to the potential conflict of interest involved (since Byrne still had weeks to go on the Ellsberg trial) or, well, not blind to the conflict of interest. After all, it's Ehrlichman, in particular, who had guilty knowledge of his own involvement in the break-in at Ellsberg's psychiatrist's office.
Ehrlichman than meets secretly, that night, with Herbert Kalmbach -- Nixon's personal lawyer who had raised the money for payments to the Watergate defendants. Ehrlichman's goal: to get Kalmbach to put the blame for the hush money on Dean. But, according to Kalmbach's testimony, he reminds Ehrlichman: "And you, too, John" -- for it was Ehrlichman who had told Kalmbach to get the hush money operation started.
