Asked in Richard Nixon
Why do you think President Nixon taped his conversations even though he was discussing illegal activities with his aides?

So that, if one of his aides turned against him, he could use the tapes against them. He never thought for a moment that his own tapes would be used against him.
A schemer never thinks their own scheme will backfire. They only see the positives from their point of view.
