True North

"Can you imagine, friends, in an administration of which Ollie North was a part, commingling illegal campaign funds between official and campaigns? Possible payoffs to ex-deputy attorney generals? Obstruction of justice? Illegal foreign donations to this country? Fraudulent security clearances? Waiving of national security concerns? ... You cannot imagine those things happening in any administration in which Ollie North would be playing a role, because he would not tolerate them, and he would not associate himself with anybody that did."
