A veteran White House reporter reveals our 37th president was even more sinister and haunted than we knew.
That the future president sabotaged the 1968 peace talks for political gainBy the time Nixon became president in 1969, he had linked to the mob for more than two decades and, as president, had a close connection with New Orleans boss Carlos Marcello, the most powerful Mafioso in the nationThe president had a drinking problem and top aides referred to him as "Our Drunk"Nixon had a misogynist streak and was abusive toward first lady Pat NixonThe intimate and possibly homosexual nature of Nixon's relationship with confidante Charles "Bebe" Rebozo, a banker with mob tiesTestimony alleging that the president had ordered the killing of White House reporter Jack Anderson
Fulsom’s examination of these and other startling aspects of Nixon’s personal and political dimensions paint an unflinching portrait of a leader who was once the most powerful man in the world. Nixon’s Darkest Secrets provides a chilling final chapter in literature on our most troubled president.
