John W. Dean ò 5 Summary

Summary The Nixon Defense ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Based on Nixon’s previously overlooked secret recordings a revelatory new look at Watergate by one of its key figures   Watergate forever changed American politics and in light of the revelations about the NSA’s wide­spread surveillance program the scandal has taken on new significance Yet remarkably four decades after he was forced to resign no one has told the full story of Nixon’s involvement in Watergate   In The Nixon Defens. John Dean is a man with a mission one that has lasted him most of his adult life This comprehensive tome is the sort of documented primary evidence that is only done by someone who s got a large stake in setting the historical record straight Dean is that man It goes to show that even though the First Amendment has become narrower in some ways what with the NSA helping itself to all of our phone records and no reporters or photographers being permitted in war zones any yet in some ways it has become much broader If you are curious about these transcripts yourself you can get onto the website Dean offers at the very beginning of his missive or you can do as I did and go to YouTube I don t know whether all of the transcripts are there I wasn t on a mission with a scope as large as Dean s and there were many many hours of taped conversation YouTube has so much material some of it historical andor arcane But during my surf I did note that there was a lot of what would previously have been considered restricted material there It wasn t just the resignation and the Checkers speech it was a tremendous amount of data Send out your thanks to the gods of technology which is what made Dean s newer and comprehensive transcription possibleI was in high school during the Watergate scandal in a nearly 100% Caucasianmostly affluent Republican suburb outside Portland Oregon My high school peers said things like Oh well of course he lied but he s still a better president than McGovern would have been and Wow Rose Mary Woods Now there s loyalty My own father a conservative Republican scowled at my sister and me as we avidly viewed the presidential resignation speech He poured himself another another and yet another glass of bourbon and shook his head telling us that the president was a fine man who had been viciously hounded by a liberal press For those of us who lived through this American political saga it s about context For those who seek less detail than is included here or want a novel like story arc I would recommend All the President s Men which is a briefer and less repetitive narrative told by one of the investigative journalists who uncovered the Watergate scandal For those who are sticklers for detail either for academic or professional reasons or because like me you are addicted to Watergate material this will be a deeply satisfying readTo put it another way if like me you had to get a copy of The Pentagon Papers and read what the US government tried to suppress then you also ought to read this bookAt first I thought Dean s tone was a little too plaintive given that he had cooperated in a cover up himself albeit under protest for nearly a year Once I got into the trial material and saw the vindictive and purposeful way Richard Nixon and those who worked for him set about to destroy Dean I no longer felt that he protested too much The machinations of Nixon s revenge are worth a thesis unto themselves so I will let that bit go and move on You ll have to read the book if you want about Nixon s vengeanceWhat did Nixon know I started to provide it in bullet points here and realized it was just no fun that way Let me say this much Dean does answer the uestion Nobody living knows about this subject than John Dean It has become his life s work If you invest yourself in 700 pages of text you will not come away feeling cheated unless you skim and miss things I didn tIt was not only Nixon s self righteous attitude when it was clear that he was legally and morally wrong that I found disturbing but also the tone The racist and sexist remarks that punctuate the conversations he has with his highest level advisors cannot simply be written off as relics of that point in history It is appalling What is eually appalling is that upon learning of the burglary at the Democratic headuarters Nixon Haldeman and Ehrlichman find no moral objection to what has been done hell they ve authorized far worse things as we later learn No what disturbs them is how badly the job was done how unprofessional the burglars were It sounds like something out of a Godfather seuel And it just gets worse By the time Dean decides that Nixon cannot be redeemed and goes to the prosecutor to explain what has happened and try to gain immunity we see Nixon vow first not to speak to him and to fire him as White House counsel then to destroy him which is ugly but can have multiple meanings literal and figurative and then ultimately Dean must enter a witness protection program for awhile because of the mountains of death threats that are received daily Dean s counsel wants to know whether Nixon would try to have him killed and at first Dean who does not ruffle easily thinks not But then he muses that it s possible the president would arrange something through his pal Bebe RebozoI had heard from friends who had read than I had that Mitchell Haldeman and Ehrlichman were serious thugs This transcript and the brief paraphrasing that connects its pieces not unlike Sheehan s Pentagon Papers makes all of it uite real This man was supposedly the leader of the free world He used public monies to bring down retribution on his enemies his own word and used other people s tax dollars to fund a remodeling and extension of his home in San Clemente He continually revised the truth according to what was convenient for him At first I wondered did Nixon have some sort of psychiatric disorder that made him unable to process clearly But as the story unfolded I could see exactly how well he tracked events His temperament and loyalties were ever changing and always in line with his own self interest He could not absolutely could not bear for the burglary scandal to touch his dear friend and former law partner John Mitchell who headed up the Committee to Re elect the President Absolutely not It was unthinkable but only until the jig was obviously up And when Mitchell had to be sacrificed then Nixon just didn t talk to him any That was it over done And then everything was Mitchell s fault his old friend was like a waste basket by the door When you see a problem toss it onto the Mitchell pile He did itThen of course he had other two best friends Haldeman and Ehrlichman who were the only people he still trusted and though this book is about politics it s interesting that the First Lady is never mentioned he doesn t eat dinner with her doesn t have her out on the presidential yachtwe hear from Tricia and Julie his daughters during the peak of crisis but the guy s wife is practically invisibleBut Haldeman and Ehrlichman should not be culpable for all the illegal things they have helped him plan and execute and so he decides that his counsel John Dean should serve as the go between so that everything that is told to Nixon by Dean would he thought be covered by attorney client privilege And this is when Dean begins to suirm as things that are illegal immoral and untenable are sent via him as the presidential filter At first he just does what the boss says then he starts to tentatively warn him that he s getting into some deep water here and eventually he is laying it on the line and Nixon tells him that of course those discussions never occurred and these things never happenedLater when Dean realizes that he cannot work with Nixon without breaking the law he goes to the prosecutor hoping to avoid prison Then Dean is no longer the guy Nixon trusts and in fact every bad thing anyone who ever worked for Nixon ever did is said to have been done by Dean It is a fascinating transformation And the way Nixon first clings to Haldeman and Ehrlichman and seems to actually be a little afraid to fire them but he then is ready to lay blame at their door while suggesting to Haldeman on the side that he can pardon him when the whole thing is over Fascinating It is so dreadful that I found myself tempted to add this book to my horror shelfHere s the obvious analogy I see when people go to the zoo some of them want to see the giraffes the hippos the monkeys and then they get their cotton candy and take the kiddies homeBut others have to visit the small dark building where the reptiles slither aroundAnd so it is with Nixon buffs we cannot help but be transfixed by that which seems so sinister so repulsive to our own humanity We look because we can t stand not to look Once we look we cannot look awayDean s revenge is in having the last word about what was done during that terrible time and in making absolutely plain what the truth is He is painstaking in using new technology to improve the historical record Payback is sweetest when you are absolutely correct and if there is a theme to this publication there it is And now most of the ugliest players are dead and cannot come back to wreck havoc upon the living any May they rot where they lieIf like me you cannot look away read Dean s record of this criminal conspiracy to cover up covered up obstructed justice by the man who held power than any other politician and by his loyal minions The repetition of the conversations in some ways is entirely appropriate because it shows the level of obsession and in particular of Nixon s obsession with the power that his presidency provided at least for a time and how badly the public s trust and resources can be misused and abusedIf you read it at night you may want to leave the light on when you go to sleep Nixon is dead but you just never know who the hell is out there A Liverpool Lass yet in some ways it has become much broader If
