Robert Mardian was the assistant attorney general for Internal Security during President Richard Nixon‘s first term. In this role, he was involved in many controversial matters, including the Pentagon Papers case. Mardian was convicted along with former Attorney General John Mitchell, as well as Nixon White House aides John Ehrlichman and H.R. “Bob” Haldeman, of conspiracy to obstruct justice at the Watergate conspiracy trial held before Judge John Sirica.
Rochvarg was a member of the legal defense team for the appeal of Mardian’s conviction.
