 Walsh Iran / Contra Report - Chapter 31 Edwin Meese III: November 1986
Meese was conducting the November 21-24 investigation as ``counselor'' and ``friend'' to the President, not as the nation's chief law enforcement officer.
Meese's motives for misrepresenting the President's knowledge are implicit in the preface to his statement to Shultz: ``certain things could be a violation of law.'' Meese, in effect, signaled Shultz that to disclose the President's knowledge of the November 1985 HAWK shipment would implicate the President in an illegal activity.
Meese was called as a Government witness in the North trial because two of the charges were based on North's false account of the Iran arms sales diversion and other lies he told the attorney general during a November 23, 1986, interview.
