In Tricky Dick , New York Times bestselling author Roger Stone gives the inside scoop on Richard Nixon's political career. He charts Nixon's rise from election to Congress on to his devastating losses in the White House run in 1960 and the California governor campaign in 1962, to the greatest comeback in American presidential history. Stone reveals:
How the Kennedys wiretapped Nixon's hotel room the night before the Nixon-Kennedy debate and stole Nixon's medical records from his psychiatrist's office. How White House Counsel John Dean planned, pushed, and covered up the Watergate break-in, then sought to avoid responsibility for it. How a cabal of military and intelligence hard-liners spied on and undermined Nixon to stop his pro-peace d#65533;tente foreign policy. How General Alexander Haig orchestrated Nixon's removal from office in a coup d'#65533;tat and brokered the deal for his pardon. Why FBI man Mark Felt is not Deep Throat, why there is no Deep Throat, and why Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein lie about it even today.
This paperback edition features new information, including an explosive new chapter about how Judge John Sirica and two Watergate special prosecutors and their staffs violated the law and their judicial canon of ethics to railroad Nixon and his men, as a result denying them the fair trial the Constitution guarantees.
