Liddy Has His Day – And Say – In Court

An article in the Jan. 30 Metro section incorrectly identified the lawyer who questioned G. Gordon Liddy when he took the stand on his own behalf in a defamation lawsuit. The Liddy attorney who questioned him during direct examination was John B. Williams. (Published 1/31/01)

Watergate conspirator G. Gordon Liddy testified here today that the greatest political scandal in American history was set in motion by a jealous prostitute who was annoyed that a fellow call girl wore sables and bragged about being the girlfriend of Nixon administration lawyer John Dean.

Liddy took the witness stand in a defamation suit filed against him by Ida “Maxie” Wells, a Louisiana English teacher who was a 23-year-old secretary at the Democratic National Committee at the time of the Watergate break-in. Liddy’s five hours of testimony in a federal courtroom filled with curious spectators and conspiracy buffs marked his first extensive remarks under oath about the 1972 break-in.

Today the questions came only from Liddy’s attorney. He will be cross-examined Tuesday.

Liddy has said in at least two speeches that the Watergate break-in was intended to cover up the fact that Dean’s then-girlfriend, Maureen Biner, was part of a call-girl ring run out of the DNC by stealing pictures of her from Wells’s desk.
