NBC News Exclusive: Memo Shows Watergate Prosecutors Had Evidence Nixon White House Plotted Violence

Source: NBC

Watergate prosecutors had evidence that operatives for then-President Richard Nixon planned an assault on anti-war demonstrators in 1972, including potentially physically attacking Vietnam whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, according to a never-before-published memo obtained by NBC News.

The document, an 18-page 1973 investigative memorandum from the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, sheds new light on how prosecutors were investigating attempts at domestic political violence by Nixon aides, an extremely serious charge.

NBC News is publishing the memo, and an accompanying memo about an interview prosecutors conducted with GOP operative Roger Stone, as part of special coverage for the 45th anniversary of the Watergate break-in.

1. Stone was critical in helping Bush win two terms

People shouldn't forget that the dirtbag didn't only help Trump. He worked with Atwater for Bush. He worked to start the recount riots in 2000, and killed the reform party (with the help of Trump), to tip that election over to Bush. He was also responsible for rathergate.

4. See "Get Me Roger Stone" on Netflix. The film has a lot of Stone's misdeeds documented.

8. I'm sure their bullshit excuse is that they "didn't want to destabilize the country."

Putting a criminal president in prison would have sent a loud and clear message to all politicians who would break the law to gain political power.
