I was never a big fan of Nixon for all sorts of reasons that interestingly have changed over the years, but I was always a bit suspicious of just how neat and tidy the Watergate Scandal played out. And especially how it lives in the national consciousness (and conscience). I had written a couple of blog posts a few years ago, but with this info below, I decided to organize it all.
There are rustlings in the present world that indicate that Watergate was not what it seemed to be.
It’s taken decades of work, but a former aide’s campaign to clear Richard Nixon’s name in the 1972 Watergate scandal has finally reached the Justice Department, with the aide seeking an investigation into allegations of prosecutorial misconduct and a “deep state” conspiracy to take Nixon down.
