WASHINGTON — Attorneys for lobbyist Michael K. Deaver have submitted corporate memos to a federal investigator to support their contention that Deaver testified truthfully about his meeting last February with James C. Miller III, President Reagan's budget director.
A House subcommittee, in a report last month, charged that Deaver had lied when he told the panel under oath last May that he had discussed plans for this key meeting with officials of Rockwell International Corp., one of his clients.
The report by the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on oversight and investigations said that Rockwell officials had contended that they knew nothing about the meeting, at which Deaver sought to enlist Miller's support for production of the B-1 bomber manufactured by Rockwell.
Knew About Meeting
But the subcommittee, which is headed by Rep. John D. Dingell (D-Mich.), subsequently said that it had learned belatedly from Rockwell officials that they knew about the meeting in advance. Left standing were two other perjury allegations against Deaver involving other testimony.
