Watergate Trial Conversations  Episode #E - 1 Segment 1 (1971)
Synopsis: A discussion of the Associated Milk Producers political action committee and the advisability of maintaining milk price supports as the 1972 general election campaign approaches.

I think they've got, uh, a legitimate cause.

I wouldn't, I wouldn't recommend that you
