You might want to read America's Lost Narrative, by Robert Parry. It covers Nixon's treason in depth*, and goes on to explain how Reagan/Bush did the same thing by sabotaging the Iran Hostage negotiations in 1980.

Some might think of Bush Sr. as a moderate Republican, especially after the debacle of the Dubya presidency. But Bush Sr. was one of the great scumbags of all time, and was the common thread running through most of the GOP corruption of the 60s, 70s, and 80s. The book is well-researched, with plenty of documentation.

* At this link you can see a photo of the file that LBJ kept from the public after he left office. It has been examined, and contains proof that Nixon sabotaged the Vietnam peace talks.
