Want To Know How To Stop Trump's Threats [View all]

Watergate Casualties and Convictions
In the aftermath of Richard Nixon’s resignation, Watergate continued to claim victims.

The final toll included:

one presidential resignation
one vice-presidential resignation – although Agnew’s crimes were unrelated to Watergate
40 government officials indicted or jailed
H.R. Haldeman and John Erlichman (White House staff), resigned 30 April 1973, subsequently jailed
John Dean (White House legal counsel), sacked 30 April 1973, subsequently jailed
John Mitchell, Attorney-General and Chairman of the Committee to Re-elect the President (CREEP), jailed
Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy (ex-White House staff), planned the Watergate break-in, both jailed
Charles Colson, special counsel to the President, jailed
James McCord (Security Director of CREEP), jailed
Donald Segretti, lawyer in charge of "rat-fucking, " jailed.

Not one member of Trump's administration, not one member of Trump's inner circle has been prosecuted and those people did much worse than what the people in Nixon's administration did.

Merrick Garland is to blame for Trump's behavior. If it weren't for the J6 committee exposing all of the crimes there would be no Trump prosecutions.

Oh I forgot, Garland did make Weiss a special counsel so that he could indict Hunter Biden.
Oh, I forgot, Garland did appoint Hur to release a report that mischaracterized what President Biden did with classified documents.

Need a list of Trump people - not jailed?
