Disgraced president Nixon ‘beat his wife’ so badly she needed hospital

DISGRACED former US president Richard Nixon beat his wife so badly she needed hospital treatment, a veteran journalist has claimed.

Pat Nixon was taken to hospital near the couple’s estate in San Clemente, California, a few weeks after Nixon was forced from power over the Watergate scandal in August 1974, Seymour Hersh has revealed.

Hersh, a Pulitzer Prize- winning writer, made the claim in his new memoir Reporter.

He said: “I was called by someone connected to a nearby hospital in California and told that Nixon’s wife, Pat, had been treated in the emergency room there a few days after she and Nixon had returned from Washington.
