In an hour-long question-and-answer session with 400 Associated Press editors, Nov. 17, 1973, he declares" "I have earned every cent. And in all of my years of public life I have never obstructed justice. People have got to know whether or not their President is a crook. Well, I'm not a crook. I've earned everything I've got."
