Did you know that Richard Nixon was set up in Watergate?

because he was making deals with the Chinese, against the will of the CIA? He also allowed Henry Kissinger to put a promise in writing that the United States would never invade Cuba.

The whole time Nixon never knew that Hunt was still on the CIA payroll and a double-agent for them to get Nixon out of the WH and stop appeasing the communists.

    Does not suprise me, Hunt also blackmailed Nixon... for a million or so and apparently Bush Sr footed that Bill. The whole watergate scandal was a means to coverup the kennedy hit, the cuban fiasco - seems like a close knit group of folks, nixon, bushes, Hunt, johnson, Hoover, all seemingly hanging around in Texas that faited day in November,

    The speculation continues, most probably the level of Nixon's involvement will never be fully known. Nixon made the mistake of not recognizing how badly the press hated him. He took the office from LBJ, a man whose influence peddling, payoffs, and dirty tricks were well known to the media; and also not reported. Nixon was naive to expect that he would receive the same carte blanche from the 4th estate.

    Watergate and deep throat would never have happened under a democratic president, as the press would not have been willing to go to bat at that level for an 'unnamed source'.

    Source?

    I think Nixon was set up because of his views and pushing for national health care.

    Apparently the source is Stone Cold Steve Austin. I can't find him to be a credible source though given his major is not in political history.
