In Silent Coup, Len Colodny and Robert Gettlin have written an explosive new history of the fall of the president. The product of an extraordinary seven-year investigation, Silent Coup documents the political and personal agendas that combined to destroy Richard Nixon. Silent Coup contains exclusive new material gathered from hundreds of interviews, from still-unreleased government documents, from the complete Oval Office logs of Nixon's presidency, and from a painstaking cross-examination of the books and testimony of the major and minor players in the story.""

Silent Coup is a bestselling 1992 book written by Len Colodny and Robert Gettlin in which they contend that former Nixon White House counsel John Dean orchestrated the 1972 Watergate burglary at Democratic National Committee headquarters to protect his future wife, Maureen Biner, by removing information linking her to a call-girl ring that worked for the DNC.
