Overview

The Real Watergate Scandal: Collusion, Conspiracy, and the Plot That Brought Nixon Down by Geoff Shepard

An aging judge about to step down. Aggressive prosecutors friendly with the judge. A disgraced president. A nation that had already made up its mind. The Watergate trials were a legal mess—and now, with the discovery of new documents that reveal shocking misconduct by prosecutors and judges alike, former Nixon staffer Geoff Shepard has a convincing case that the wrongdoing of these history-making trials was actually a bigger scandal than the Watergate scandal itself.

A "must read" for anyone who (1) has any interest in the downfall of President Nixon, (2) wonders about the integrity of the American judicial system, or (3) lived through the Watergate era. Brand new, and compelling, documentation of judicial and prosecutorial misconduct. A fascinating - albeit chilling - eye-opener. After reading it, I purchased 10 copies to share with colleagues and friends.
