James Rosen talked about his experiences, legal career, and book The Strong Man: John Mitchell and the Secrets of Watergate, published that week by Doubleday. As U.S. attorney general from 1969 to 1972, John Mitchell was central to the Watergate scandal. This full-scale biography of John N. Mitchell spans his youth in Detroit, his position as the national’s premier municipal bond lawyer, his role as campaign manager for both of Richard Nixon’s successful presidential runs and his time as attorney general (1969-1972). Later, Mr. Mitchell became the highest ranking official to ever serve time in prison. From 1977 to 1979, he was in federal prison for his involvement in the Watergate cover-up. James Rosen has spent almost two decades working on this book. Since 2005, he has been a Washington correspondent for Fox News. Before that, he was a researcher for Dan Rather at CBS. Photographs and video clips were shown in the background during the interview. Also shown was a video clip from the National Archives of Mr. Mithchell’s testimony of July 12, 1973, at the Senate Watergate hearing. close
