Did former president Richard Nixon ever say "Let me make this perfectly clear"?

If so, what was the context and is there any documentation.

    No. He said "People ought to know if their President is a crook. Well I am not a crook." As it looked, he really was a crook. Ordered the Watergate break-in. Got away with it after Ford gave him a pardon. It was a whole lot of BS. They had dirt on Ford from way back during the Warren Commission having to do with him and Hoover and they threatened to leak it to the press if Ford didn't give him a pardon. They're all crooks. I would have gone up there and made a citizen's arrest if I was alive at the time.

    All the time--it was one of his favorite phrases. Later in his Presidency, "I'm not a crook" was almost as popular as "Let me make this perfectly clear"

    Just like how they got everyone believing Sarah Palin said something about seeing Russia from her house.
