Fred F. Fielding, being duly sworn according to law, states as follows:
1. I served as Counsel to the President of the United States for the period January 1981 through May 1986.
One of the duties of that office was to review background information regarding all potential Presidential appointees, and to recommend either approval or disapproval of the candidate on the basis of his/her suitability for appointment by the President.
3. During the year 1981, Mr. Charles Keating was a potential candidate for United States Ambassador to the Bahamas. It is my recollection that sometime in the late summer or early fall I recommended disapproval of his candidacy and so advised the Presidential Personnel orrice and State Department. I do not at this time recall the specific problem or problems that caused me to reach that decision, or whether the problem or problems were on-going and current or an event(s) of the past. I do believe the problem was related to business activity of Mr. Keating.
4. Although particular recommendations made in the course of the clearance process were not generally to be made known to the public or the candidate, in this instance it is my recollection that at some point Mr. Keating became aware that it was my oflice that was blocking his appointment, and sought a personal appointment with me. Records indicate that such a meeting took place with me on November 17, 1981. have no present recollection of the meeting or of what may have been specifically discussed at it.
5. I was aware that Senator DeConcini was supportive of Mr. Keating's nomination, and assume that knowledge came to ne from Mr. Keating. Also, I am aware that after my meeting with Mr. Keating, senator DeConcini placed several telephone calls to my office regarding Mr. Keating's proposed nomination. To the best of my recollection I never discussed this subject with the Senator. I would not have returned his phone calls at that time if I knew the subject was Mr. Keating's proposed nomination, as I would have not wanted to discuss any particulars of my reasons for recommending against Mr. Keating's appointment, out of fairness to Mr.
