Summary
"Research has uncovered shocking violations of ethical and legal standards by the "good guys"--including Judge John Sirica, Archibald Cox, and Leon Jaworski. Documents that the Watergate Special Prosecution Force was an avenging army drawn from the ranks of Nixon's most partisan foes. They had the good fortune to work with judges who shared their animus... Shows that the "smoking gun" conversation, which he himself was the first to transcribe, was taken out of context and completely misunderstood ... Crimes were committed, and an attempt was made to cover them up. But by trampling on the defendants' right to due process...denied the American people the assurance that justice was done."--
Summary
Reveals violations of ethical and legal standards during the Watergate Affair in 1974, including collusion between prosecutors and the federal judges who tried the cases, and argues that Nixon's "smoking gun" recording was taken out of context
