The FBI investigated but the final charges did not go as expected because they lack evidence.. There had been some efforts to hide facts of Watergate tapping: documents were destroyed, staffs were under pressure to stay away from press, staffs were persuaded to give certain answers to FBI, and staffs possessed critical information were promoted after Watergate. President Richard Nixon assured the public that the White House had no involvement with this particular incident. His use of the words “particular incident” led the reporters to look further into their investigation. Woodward and Bernstein uncovered indecent campaign strategies to undercut the Democratic Party by using unlawful methods such as threats, phone tapping and spying.
In time, the burglars hired under Nixon 's control revealed the truth about their wrongful conduct for the sake of avoiding harsh punishments. Nixon was asked to step down numerous times, but disregarded the requests of many. John Dean kept notes regarding the president 's malicious, wrongful conduct, which he revealed in front of the Senate Watergate Commmitee. A White House employee disclosed that recordings complete with all of Nixon 's Oval Office conversations were acquirable in 1973. Nixon fought against the committee in an effort to keep his precious tapes out of the public eye.
However, Nixon was a man that would go to extreme lengths and tricks if it achieved political success. Nixon also believed that it was better to attack an opponent rather than defend, similar to McCarthyism. Nixon gained victories by attacking his opponents with blatant lies, partial truths, and confusing quotations. Not only this, but Nixon also employed arguments on distorted
The reason I request for its repel is because it was a violation of the first amendment, turned political parties against each other, and because the only reason the Sedition Act was made was because of the president’s wife. First of all the sedition act was a direct violation of the first amendment. Many newspapers wrote about what they thought and would get arrested for that. In the Sedition Act it states, “false, scandalous and malicious writing or writings against the government of the United States, or either house of the congress of the United States, or President of the United States,” (Adams 1798) this isn’t fair. The first amendment was made to protect you right of the
I am Not a Crook: The 37th President Leading up to the 1972 Presidential election, President Richard Nixon wanted to defeat his opponents with a landslide victory. This desire allowed him and his staff to bend and even break the law of the United States, adding to this the President was becoming increasingly paranoid due to a large amount of leaks from his office to the media. This caused President Nixon to install listing devices in the White House, but after the leak of documents know as the Pentagon Papers, the break in of the of the Democratic National Committee, DNC, the cover up that fallowed the break in, and the deleting of eight-teen minutes of taped recorded conservation brought to light a darker side to the President. This scandal
"Honest Abe" is not all that Americans think. Sources state that Abraham Lincoln was assassinated because of the money he printed debt-free ("Whiteout Press"). But the real reason John Wilkes Booth assassinated Abraham Lincoln was because Lincoln suspended writ of habeas corpus, arrested people that spoke out against him and oversaw concentration two camps. Abraham Lincoln 's assassination is directly correlated to him being a war criminal ("Southern Sentinel"). Firstly, Abraham Lincoln suspended writ of habeas corpus (any state that orders your arrest must justify your imprisonment before a judge) ("ListVerse").
It’s crazy how society takes more action on Batman and the Joker rather than real-life threats, like terrorism. The government is so scared of what the outcome of its decision will be that it does not act in the most efficient ways. This is why the government isn’t always the best with following through with these executions. The Batman must kill the Joker, or else the rest of society will pay for it. The government is showing society that unlawful acts are acceptable and will be tolerated and that is ridiculously disgusting.
Many believe that the mafia saw that getting rid of Kennedy would also get rid of his brother, since there would have to be a new administration after his death, and Robert would have to be replaced. However; a big whole in this particular theory is that, according to the mafia it is against their code of conduct to kill any person with any kind of legal
Luis Carlos Galán, a politician running for presidency, was extremely dissatisfied with the actions by the drug cartels in Colombia. Therefore, he started to fight the drug cartels. Despite Escobar’s success in politics, Galán, the head of the ‘Nuevo Liberalisimo’ party where Pablo wanted to be part of, did not want Escobar involved in his party. Galán named in his speech that he did not accept support from someone who cannot explain the origin of his fortune. Escobar also knew that if Galán would become the president, he and his cartel would be turned over to the USA and be brought to justice.
The CIA 's potential involvement was frequently mentioned during the 1960s and 1970s when the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was involved in plots to assassinate foreign leaders, particularly Fidel Castro. According to author James Douglass, Kennedy was assassinated because he was turning away from the Cold War and seeking a negotiated peace with the Soviet Union. Accusations and confessions of and by alleged conspirators, as well as official government reports citing the CIA as uncooperative in investigations, have at times renewed interest in these conspiracy theories. The CIA is the first main group that was investigated by the Warren Commission .There are two main people in the CIA that we think to have something to do with it. William K. Harvey was a main suspect because he was a CIA clandestine services operative who help arrange assassination plots and was also seen with Oswald(JFK assassination co-conspirators).
and did not turn over all communications. The Supreme Court rejected Nixons claim to immunity from judicial process and he resigned sixteen days later. This case had a huge impact on the US Society and me as a person as I am a member of society. The power of the presidency grew exponentially with executive power, and this case was a crucial precedent for limiting it. It was obvious that the tapes and papers Nixon would not release would implicate criminal wrongdoing by Nixon and his men.
Watergate, Clinton’s Impeachment, and the Iran-Contra Scandals all could have been avoided if people had just told the truth. This is an all-around good rule to follow. No one is above the law, especially the president. Watergate, Clinton’s Impeachment, and the Iran-Contra Scandals were all caused by the illegal actions of the president and members of his staff. Therefore, you should hold everyone accountable to the law, especially yourself, because if you do not, the American
