Quote: "Voters who disregarded Richard Nixon's in the questionable ethics issue, that led to the 'Checkers' speech, should not have been surprised when he orchestrated the Watergate cover-up as President", unquote, -American journalist Ronald Kessler, (December 31, 1943-).


After Christmas of 1972 ended, President Richard Milhous Nixon was looking forward to a new year that was free of the Watergate matter. By January of 1973 onward, it was a matter of time before Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein's explosive story on Watergate took full momentum;  Bernstein sipped more coffee, as he said: "Some of the other newspapers aren't reporting the truth, Bob; some are wavering. Look at the September 29, 1972, story on John Mitchell. The Democrat Party are hurting in the polls; the Party leaders want answers as to why Nixon won on November 7", he said. They remembered speaking to Judy Hobeck Miller. "​Did you work for President Nixon?​", Carl Bernstein asked. "​Yes, I was his bookkeeper. I kept his records for CREEP​", she answered. "​Was there anything untoward in the upkeep of records?​", Bob Woodward added. She shook her head. "No, I don't want to cause any kind of trouble. Watergate seems to be a world away​", she said. And, after the interview was over, Bernstein and Woodward continued working on Watergate together.
