Presidential Fan: Watergate Plus 30- Shadow of History

The Watergate burglary was short of just the tip of the iceberg as far as what happened during the Nixon Administration especially the White House. And without the Nixon coverup, we may of never known the full truth of what happened in the Nixon White House as far as their criminal activities. But once the coverup started, that brought in Congress, which started with the Senate’s 1973 hearings on Watergate, which were really about the 1972 presidential campaign as a whole. And then House took that and started looking into impeachment in 1974.

All President Nixon had to do was to let the Watergate investigation go forward and not interfere with the FBI and report on exactly what they knew about the Watergate burglary and that would’ve closed the door on that investigation. Watergate was just a burglary that Dick Nixon didn’t even know about until it was first reported. The major crimes in the Nixon White House had little if anything to do with Watergate. The real crimes were the other activities that the Nixon White House were involved in before Watergate.

The Nixon crimes had to do with ordering illegal break ins and bugging’s on private American citizens. The Brookings Institution perfect example of that. The secret bombings of Cambodia without Congressional approval or authorization. And as Richard Reeves put it in this film, “had the Democratic Congress been alive back then, they would’ve discovered the real crimes of the Nixon White House pre-Watergate”. Those crimes happened at around 1970 or so with the Nixon White House concern about the anti-war movement and the New Left in America in general. Watergate was small potatoes in comparison.
