Diane talks to David Corn, Washington bureau chief for Mother Jones, about what this week's Supreme Court rulings mean for limits on presidential power and the fate of President Trump's tax returns.
A lonely outsider, filled with resentment. This is not the picture one necessarily associates with a future president. But this is the portrait we get of the young Richard Nixon in author Evan Thomas’s 2015 book. Thomas set out to get inside the president’s mind, starting from Nixon’s childhood. What he found was more complex than the malevolent, cartoon image of “Tricky Dick” he says many of us have.
Now, with articles of impeachment being drafted against President Trump by House Democrats, it seemed like a good idea to look back at the man taken down by Watergate.
- Evan Thomas Journalist, author and professor; author of "Being Nixon: A Man Divided," "Ike's Bluff: President Eisenhower's Secret Battle to Save the World" and "Robert Kennedy: His Life"
