Was President Richard M. Nixon's White House Chief of Staff and was imprisoned for his involvement in the Watergate cover-up. It is Haldeman who was supposed to have been talking to Nixon during the 18 1/2 minute gap on the infamous Nixon Tapes. The U.S. Supreme Court intervened and forced the turnover of all tapes. The taped conversations with Haldeman were the "smoking gun" needed to directly connect Nixon with the coverup. He resigned his post in April of 1973 and was subsequently convicted of obstruction of justice and conspiracy. He spent 18 months in federal prison. Following his prison stay, Haldeman published "The Ends of Power," in which he took full responsibility for creating an environment which led to the Watergate fiasco. Nixon often spoke highly of Haldeman's intelligence and integrity and released a statement to that upon hearing that Haldeman had died.
