Nixon's phone call to LBJ took place on the eve of the first Watergate trial of Hunt, Liddy, McCord and the four Cuban-Americans. The first trial ended with guilty pleas by Hunt and the Cuban Americans and by the jury's verdict of Liddy and McCord being guilty. McCord's letter to Judge Sirica a few months later exposed the "hush money" cover-up, which led to the second Watergate trial and later to Nixon's resignation from the presidency.

I testified at the first Watergate trial as a voluntary witness for the defense and an involuntary witness for the prosecution. My testimony occurred the same day that LBJ died.
