Statement on Michael K. Deaver


December 16, 1987


Nancy and I are sorry to learn the jury's decision in Mike Deaver's trial. He has been a longtime friend and has served with dedication. Beyond that I cannot comment further at this time, since the decision will likely be appealed through our court system.


Note: Mr. Deaver, who had been Deputy Chief of Staff to the President, was found guilty of three counts of perjury by a Federal grand jury.
