Nixon named Haldeman as his first White House Chief of Staff. Together with Ehrlichman they were called "The Berlin Wall" by other White House staffers in a play on their Germanic surnames and shared penchant for keeping others away from Nixon and serving as his "gatekeepers". They became Nixon's most loyal and trusted aides during his presidency. Both were ruthless in protecting what they and Nixon saw as the president's best interests; Haldeman referred to himself as Nixon's "son of a bitch", as he was responsible for hiring and firing staff members and usually did so in person.

Haldeman with Nixon, November 21, 1972.

Haldeman was a key figure in the Watergate scandal. The unexplained 18 1/2 minute gap in Nixon's Oval Office recordings occurred during a discussion that included the President and Haldeman. After damaging testimony from White House Counsel John Dean, Nixon requested the resignations of Haldeman and Ehrlichman in what has been described as a long and emotional meeting at Camp David. Dean was fired and the resignations were announced on April 30, 1973. It has been reported in reports not verified by either Nixon or Haldeman that after Nixon announced the resignations Haldeman called Nixon and in an emotional exchange Nixon ended it by saying, "I love you, as you know.....like a brother".

In 1978, he published The Ends of Power, in which he took responsibility for fostering the atmosphere in which Watergate flourished, a stark contrast from Ehrlichman who never forgave Nixon for not pardoning him. The book also suggested a CIA plot to cover-up various facts damaging to the agency, including issues related to the Kennedy assassination. Using this information, director Oliver Stone, in his 1995 film Nixon, speculated that the missing 18 1/2 minutes of tape may have contained a discussion concerning a cover-up of the Kennedy assassination. In The Ends of Power, Haldeman states that when Nixon asked him to inform the FBI that the Watergate investigation could 'open up the whole 'Bay of Pigs' thing' as can be heard on the released tapes, Nixon was referring to the Kennedy assassination.[2] See also: 1977 in literature, other events of 1978, 1979 in literature, list of years in literature. ... “CIA” redirects here. ...
