Merritt says the last of his three one-on-one meetings with Richard Nixon occurred in July 1972, just after news of the Watergate burglary broke.

While the popular refrain about Watergate is that “the system worked,” my conclusion after five months of reporting and research is that the system wasn't going to work on its own.

Nixon was cornered. He knew he was guilty.
