Veterans of Richard Nixon’s White House gathered to talk about the president’s relationship with Congress. As he began his first term in 1969 he faced the opposition party in control of both the House and Senate. His former staffers recalled how he used White House invitations and trips aboard the presidential yacht to lobby Congressional members in pursuit of his legislative goals.
