President Richard M. Nixon had just lost a Supreme Court case Now, Nixon was worried. The study had stopped before his administration took office, so its publication posed no threat to him though it did reflect poorly on his Democratic predecessors, Lyndon B. Johnson and John F. But the notion that the leak was the work of a conspiracy did worry him, since his own secrets might be revealed next. His conspiracy theory proved wrong in the long run, but in the short run Nixon acted on it.
He decided to put together a team, later known as the Plumbers, to gather and then leak information about the people he suspected were conspiring against him. Nixon had undermined those negotiations by secretly encouraging South Vietnam to boycott the peace talks, and he had been obsessed ever since with getting his hands on every bit of classified information available on the bombing halt.
Nixon had big and criminal plans, but first he needed to find someone to run the team.
