Did Pres Nixon even say: Let me make this perfectly clear?

I have heard a lot of people over the years relate that quote to Pres Nixon but I never seen a film clip or heard a sound bite or read an article where he said that.

    yes, 'Let me make this perfectly clear' was Prez Tricky Dick's line first.

    An impersonater Rich Little did an impression of Nixon whiler Nixon was nin the audience. At a star-studded party at Richard Nixon's home in 1970, Debbie Reynolds announced that Rich Little would do his famous impression of the president.

    "Mr Nixon turned around and faced me," Little later recalled, "I wound up saying something inane like, 'Let me make this perfectly clear. I think this is a marvelous party. Make no mistake about that.' And I finished by giving the Nixon V-for-vitory sign.

    Yes he did. When he was under investigation regarding Watergate, he said, "Let me make this perfectly clear, I am the President." He was pretty indignant that he was being investigated and thought he was above the law.

    "I did not have sex with that woman."
