Leonard Garment, the special counsel to US President Richard Nixon at the height of the Watergate scandal, has died, the New York Times reported on Monday. He was 89.

Garment's daughter, Ann Garment, confirmed the death to the newspaper. She said he died on Saturday at his home in Manhattan.

Garment and Nixon met in the early 1960s and were partners at a law firm. Garment played a major role in organizing Nixon's 1968 presidential campaign, and, a year later, became his special counsel at the White House.
