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

NBC News, by ARI MELBER , NOEL HARTMAN*

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 6/19/2017 7:51:23 AM

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

Next week NBC will conduct an in depth investigation of the Vince Foster murder and how Hillary and Bill Clinton cleaned out his office before his body was even cold.

Oh, please. I´m not buying it at all. This is just another attempt to throw the same Nixon-Trump comparison out there and to further damage PDT.

Just imagine what was plotted and carried out by both the Clinton and the 0bama White Houses.

Anti-war demonstrators were tearing down college campuses like they were condemned buildings in Detroit. "Violence" against them was in the form of water cannon and tear gas. Nobody advocated shooting them but the four people shot at Kent State by panicked National Guardsmen certainly put a stop to it. Snowflakes can´t handle it when you hit back.

Notice how NBC has to tell its readers this is "an extremely serious charge" just in case readers don´t see it that way. And how odd to have "45th Anniversary" special coverage of Watergate. I can´t recall 45 years being a typical choice to celebrate an anniversary and with "special" coverage no less.... These people cannot get over Watergate, and oh my, they are praying for another one.

Using someone else´s words to justify the left´s murder-mongering in the present. Keep in mind, during the Nixon years, hardly a day went by without leftist political murder.

A striking contrast to the peaceful opposition to Obama the last eight years.

Second, this was almost half a century ago, and after that much time, I distrust most "new revelations" from ANY source.

In fact, this isn´t new news -- it was known 45 years ago, and not taken very seriously. Silly gossip between Charles Colson and others included setting a fire at the Brookings Institute. It was all lightheaded bulls--t which no one, including participants in the conversations, took seriously.

As other commenters have noticed, this stale "news" is intended, associatively, to smear Trump and his advisers as potentially violent "just like Nixon."

I wouldn´t use the WAPO as housebreaking material for a new dog.

They can keep beating this dead horse for decades, but can´t seem to find any evidence of leftist violence. Apparently, "attempts at domestic political violence by Nixon aides, an extremely serious charge" is a horrible thing, but all the domestic political violence stirred up by Obama, Hitlery and others on the left is acceptable.

#37 is right. A lot of preposterous bs (meaning brain-storming) was bandied about by Nixon and his aides, who somehow had the crazy idea they could speak candidly in a White House setting.

Many ideas were floated that were not meant seriously. Everyone knew this at the time.

That said, I´m skeptical NBC has anything real. Most likely NBC´s zealous leftists are taking a few words out of context and hyping them to the max. Isn´t this the network that faked the gas tank explosions?

We are well aware of what the democrats were concocting back then. If this were indeed true, I would have thought that it would have been leaked long before now.

Nixon would not have engaged in violence but the Left most certainly did. Just not buying this, this is the Leftist media attempt to claim some moral equivalence for themselves.

They have stepped into it, and gone too far. Now they have to justify themselves with democrat concocted malarkey.

If Van Jones was right, that a moving tribute to the widow of a fallen Navy SEAL in a speech to Congress earlier this year was the moment Donald Trump became president, Trump’s news conference on Tuesday was the moment he became a Breitbart contributing editor. Charlottesville has been a diminishing event for President Trump. He has been unable to summon the moral authority of his office, even though this wasn´t a difficult test. It doesn´t take political skill or crisis-management ability to show largeness of heart. It doesn´t require knowledge to demonstrate basic moral discernment. It doesn´t take a

This afternoon President Trump conducted an impromptu press conference at Trump Tower. Asked about Charlottesville, Trump said there was blame on both sides. The press went ballistic: A combative President Donald Trump insisted Tuesday “there is blame on both sides” for the deadly violence last weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, appearing to once again equate the actions of white supremacist groups and those protesting them. In the AP’s telling, the antifas were just “protesting” the white supremacists. No mention of fighting, no reference to baseball bats. The president’s comments effectively wiped away the more conventional statement he delivered at the White House one day

EXCLUSIVE: President Trump may soon issue a pardon for Joe Arpaio, the colorful former Arizona sheriff who was found guilty two weeks ago of criminal contempt for defying a state judge’s order to stop traffic patrols targeting suspected undocumented immigrants. In his final years as Maricopa County sheriff, Arpaio had emerged as a leading opponent of illegal immigration. “I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” the president said Sunday, during a conversation with Fox News at his club in Bedminster, N.J. “He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration.

The True Identity of Jack the Ripper
May Have Just Been Confirmed

The crimes of Jack the Ripper make up one of the most famous unsolved murder cases of all time. Now, nearly 130 years after those gruesome murders cast a shadow over London, researchers believe they’ve uncovered the identity of their perpetrator. As the Telegraph reports, the claim is based on evidence from a diary that belonged to a Liverpool cotton salesman named James Maybrick in the late 19th century. In the diary, Maybrick describes killing six women—five in London’s East End where the Ripper´s historic murders occurred and one in Manchester. He signed the 9000-word volume: "I give my name that

Heavy summer rain and thunderstorms continued to pound Los Angeles County on Thursday evening, leaving drivers trapped in their cars on flooded roadways in Acton and Metrolink train commuters scrambling to find a ride home. A helicopter rescue team hoisted one man to safety as muddy water flowed down the roadway, said Los Angeles County Fire Inspector Gustavo Medina. Aerial footage showed him sitting on top of his black truck, water up to its wheels, before the rescue.

Washington President Donald Trump boasted about his election victory, pressured his Mexican counterpart to remain quiet about a border wall and called New Hampshire a "drug-infested den" in a phone call with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, according to a transcript of the conversation revealed on Thursday by The Washington Post. The transcript of Trump´s conversation with Mexico´s leader was one of two phone calls revealed on Thursday, which provide a rare glimpse into the private conversations of a new US president testing his negotiating powers on foreign counterparts.

Despite the disorder in Washington — with a revolving door at the White House and roadblocks on Capitol Hill — Wall Street and corporate America are booming. The disconnect was evident Wednesday, as the Dow Jones industrial average passed the 22,000 mark, a new high. At the same time, blue chips like Apple, Caterpillar and U.S. Steel have all reported strong earnings in recent weeks that surpassed analysts’ forecasts. “None of the soap opera in Washington matters,” said Frank Sullivan, chief executive of RPM International, a Cleveland-based maker of specialty coatings and sealants like Rust-Oleum. “Nobody in business cares about who talked

Something stinks about Charlottesville

Evidence is turning up from, of all places, the Southern Poverty Law Center, as well as Breitbart and others, that this character, Jason Kessler, who organized the suspicious and supposed Alt-Right demonstration in Charlottesville, Va. that blew up in everyone´s face, is a cunning lefty holdover from the Occupy Wall Street movement and a former Barack Obama supporter. I smell Soros money, sabotage, and Democrat dirty tricks here. I´ve been suspicious of the nature of the violence at this supposed Alt-Right demonstration since the news first began breaking. It is no secret that radical elements in the Democrat left have

(Tweet) Kasich has long been critical of Trump. On Tuesday, Kasich criticized Trump´s Charlottesville comments, saying "there is no moral equivalency to Nazi sympathizers" following Trump´s tumultuous press conference. Kasich, who lost to Trump

CNN host Wolf Blitzer said Thursday there would be questions if the Barcelona terror attack involving a van crashing into a group of people was a "copycat" of what happened in Charlottesville, Va. At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 were injured in Barcelona on Thursday when men rammed their van into a crowd of pedestrians at Las Ramblas, a popular tourism area in the city in northeastern Spain. The attack came five days after a man with white supremacist group ties was arrested for driving his car into a group of counter-protesters in Charlottesville, killing one

Trump ignited a political firestorm yesterday during an impromptu press conference in which he said there was "blame on both sides" for the tragic events that occurred in Charlottesville over the weekend. Now, the discovery of a craigslist ad posted last Monday, almost a full week before the Charlottesville protests, is raising new questions over whether paid protesters were sourced by a Los Angeles based "public relations firm specializing in innovative events" to serve as agitators in counterprotests. The ad was posted by a company called "Crowds on Demand" and offered $25 per hour to "actors and photographers"

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has weighed in on the weekend´s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, castigating Donald Trump without naming him. ´We can have no tolerance for an ideology of racial hatred. There are no good neo-nazis,´ McConnell said in a statement. The choice of words, while careful, appeared to push back against Trump´s claim on Tuesday that some ´very fine people´ were among a crowd of white supremacists who rallied in the college town. McConnell´s wife, Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao, stood next to Trump on Tuesday as he insisted both sides of the weekend´s clash bore some responsibility for

Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina warned President Trump on Wednesday that his “words are dividing Americans, not healing them” in the wake of the bloody clashes in Virginia that has sparked a national conversation about white supremacists and race. Mr. Graham also vowed that Republicans will “fight back against the idea that the party of Lincoln has a welcome mat out for the David Dukes of the world.” “Through his statements yesterday, President Trump took a step backward by again suggesting there is moral equivalency between the white supremacist neo-Nazis and KKK members who attended the Charlottesville rally and people like

As James Bond’s nemesis Auric Goldfinger famously observed, “Once is happenstance, twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action.” On Tuesday evening, three prominent Republicans — Senator John McCain, Senator Marco Rubio, and 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney — endorsed the left-wing media’s preferred narrative and embraced the masked thugs of Antifa as heroes. McCain and Romney used almost identical language, bending their knees to the media narrative that only two factions were present in Charlottesville during the awful events of last weekend: white supremacist Nazis and “Americans standing up to defy hate and bigotry.”

NEW YORK- They wash their hands of neo-Nazis and wag their fingers at leftists. They denounce a press corps they see as biased and controversies they view as manufactured. But in the frenzied blame game over the deadly violence at a rally of white supremacists, Donald Trump´s loyal base is happy to absolve the president himself. Even as Trump´s zig-zag response to the weekend bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia, has brought criticism from some Republican lawmakers, many men and women who helped put him in office remain unmoved by the latest uproar. "He has done nothing to turn me away from

Washington — A prominent Republican senator delivered a stinging rebuke Thursday of Donald Trump’s short time in office, declaring he has not shown the stability or competence required for an American president to succeed. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, also said Trump “recently has not demonstrated that he understands the character of this nation.” (Snip) Trump, he said, needs “to take stock of the role that he plays in our nation and move beyond himself, move way beyond himself, and move to a place where daily he’s waking up thinking about what is best for

The Presidency: President Trump´s statements regarding the tragic events in Charlottesville have created a firestorm that, even by the unique Trump-era standards, appears unprecedented. Unless Trump can undo the damage, it could cripple his administration. In his presidential memoir, "Decision Points," President George W. Bush wrote about the fallout from 2015´s Hurricane Katrina and his own mishandling of the situation. In particular, he admitted that a photo taken of him flying over New Orleans was a huge mistake. "That photo of me hovering over the damage suggested I was detached from the suffering on the ground. That was not how

Former Vice President Al Gore said his one piece of advice to President Trump would be to "resign" immediately. Gore made the statement in a video interview published Thursday on LAD Bible, the United Kingdom´s largest entertainment website. He was there to discuss climate change and his new documentary, "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power," which was released this month. The interviewer asked if there was "one piece of advice" for Trump, what would it be? He responded: "Resign." The interview appears to have been recorded before the premiere of Gore´s new film in the U.K. on Aug. 10. Gore´s
