Former White House lawyer Geoff Shepard, who once believed Nixon guilty of Watergate crimes, has uncovered the true story of that infamous scandal, exonerating Nixon in his fact-based, hard-hitting exposé, which is also the basis for his Complaint of Attorney Misconduct filed on October 2 with the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility.

WASHINGTON D.C. — With the 50th anniversary of the Watergate scandal fast approaching, the truth about one of the biggest political scandals in American history is finally emerging. A deeply researched new tell-all book reveals startling new evidence showing that President Richard Nixon could not have been personally involved in the Watergate scandal as prosecutors secretly alleged, and that the conventional 1974 narrative, set into motion by figures like Bob Woodward and John Dean, does not match the true historical record. Shepard’s meticulous research has uncovered internal documents by Watergate prosecutors, improperly kept hidden for decades, which form the basis for his October 2 Complaint with DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility.

Like many Americans, Geoff Shepard, the youngest lawyer on President Nixon’s White House staff, came to believe that the President was guilty of misconduct during Watergate. He coined the label the “smoking gun” when referring to what he found to be the most damning of the Watergate tapes. But as the years went on, Geoff began to uncover new information and was startled to learn that the story we’ve been told was entirely incorrect. White House tapes actually show that Nixon had tried to do the right thing upon learning of the cover-up. But, the President’s many political enemies conspired together, unethically and improperly, to bring the popular Republican President down and invalidate his landslide re-election.

In his new revealing book — The Nixon Conspiracy: Watergate and the Plot to Remove the President (Post Hill Press, October 26) — Shepard, former Harvard-trained White House lawyer and deputy counsel on Nixon’s defense team, gives a detailed and definitive account of the Watergate prosecutors’ internal documents that he has uncovered after years of painstaking research gathered from previously sealed archives. The Nixon Conspiracy exposes prosecutors’ deceptions that convinced the world of President Nixon’s guilt, changing everything we know about Nixon’s involvement in the Watergate scandal.

Shepard reveals the untold story of how a flawed but honorable president was intentionally brought down by a corrupt deep state/big media alliance — a circumstance that looks all too familiar today. If President Nixon had only known then what Geoff has unearthed in the intervening years, he might well have remained in office, dramatically changing the course of history.

In The Nixon Conspiracy, readers will learn:

  • How Geoff Shepard, who previously concluded that President Nixon had been personally involved in the Watergate cover-up, doggedly pursued internal documents that reveal a different story, even if years after the event.
  • What Shepard has personally uncovered are caches of internal documents, improperly taken by the four top special prosecutors when leaving office, along with the unsealing of prosecutors’ infamous “Road Map” in response to his Court Petition. That secret report was the basis for the grand jury naming Nixon an unindicted co-conspirator in the Watergate cover-up, as well as for the House Judiciary Committee recommending Nixon’s impeachment.
  • It is these documents, most of which are now publicly available at our National Archives as a result of Shepard’s efforts, that provide irrefutable proof of the judicial and prosecutorial wrongdoing underlying the Watergate scandal.
  • They detail how a specially-recruited and highly partisan Watergate Special Prosecution Force held a series of secret meetings with Watergate judges, improperly enabling a vindictive chief judge to name himself to preside at trial, and wrongfully suppressing evidence favorable to the defendants.
  • Prosecutors’ “Road Map,” exposed to public scrutiny after remaining sealed for over forty-five years, is shown to contain deliberate falsehoods and misrepresentations wrongly portraying Nixon’s personal involvement in the scandal.
  • Geoff’s research-based account changes everything we know about Watergate, proving the true scandal was actually not committed by Nixon but against Nixon and his senior staff.
  • Revelations of extensive DOJ attorney misconduct is the basis for Shepard’s OPR Complaint. Their ensuing investigation, clearly required by their stated mission (, may well result in profound changes to the Watergate narative.
  • Geoff also reveals incriminating evidence against people the media has portrayed as heroes, including John Dean and Judge John Sirica, who had serious conflicts of interest and vindictive motives in pursuing the case against the President and his associates.
