Coupled with new documentation found by author John Farrell at the Nixon archives in California in 2016, from a Haldeman note, of all things, which shows that Nixon really was involved in sabotaging the peace talks of then President Johnson, the image of Richard Nixon continues to deteriorate and tarnish. In as much as he tried for the rest of his life, after leaving office, to cleanse his.
Haldeman theorized, this may have been due to an individual’s lack of familiarity with the topics discussed but he also believed it was a way for those participants to bolster their own image. Another challenge was documenting presidential meetings with foreign leaders. Nixon preferred meeting with foreign dignitaries using only their interpreter. Nixon thought this lent an air of intimacy.

It is widely believed that the tapes recorded a conversation between Nixon and Chief of Staff H. R. Haldeman. Nixon said that he never heard the conversation and did not know the topics of the missing tapes. Haldeman's notes from the meeting show that among the topics of discussion was the arrests at the Watergate Hotel.
Haldeman’s perjury conviction did not diminish his outrage that (other) people would give false accounts of presidential conversations: “Sometimes the misreporting of fact had a bad intent, sometimes it represented a willful manufacture of false knowledge in order to gain some end.”8 Tapes would trump anyone’s account of a conversation—something Nixon thought would work in his favor.
The National Archives’ latest release of Nixon White House tapes is, as usual, a bracing antidote to historical revisionism. Whenever the academic world is tempted to adopt a more favorable view.

Oval Office 886-008; Richard Nixon, John W. Dean III, H.R. Haldeman. Dean warned Nixon that there was a “cancer” on the presidency, and he offered for the first time a complete recollection of how the planning for Watergate originated, which started as “an instruction to me from Bob Haldeman.”.
Haldeman is known as Nixon’s alter ego; as the highest-ranked White House aide to go to prison for his Watergate era crimes; for participating in the “smoking gun” conversation that.
But when Nixon ordered his lieutenant, H. R. Haldeman, to install a top-secret taping system in February 1971, Haldeman knew better than to leave it to his ham-handed boss to fumble with the switches.
