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.

It’s the 20th anniversary of the first Harry Potter book, and it’s high time we reflected on the series’ hidden right-wing messages. You see, left-wing interpretations of the books have been done to death not least by their virtue-signalling author. The left has written extremely long, glowing columns about the books, with titles like “Turning to Harry Potter During the Trump Regime” and “19 Harry Potter Quotes That Will Get You Through A Trump Presidency”. They’ve even created a Chrome extension that changes the names of Trump’s cabinet to Death Eaters. All of this is very strange, considering how many

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has struck again: This time, a senior CNN producer was caught on camera by one of O’Keefe’s investigators admitting that the network’s relentless bashing of President Donald Trump with the Russia scandal lacks proof. “Could be bullshit. I mean, it’s mostly bullshit right now,” the CNN producer, John Bonifield, said in a video O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released on Tuesday, when asked about his thoughts on the Russia investigation. “Like, we don’t have any giant proof.

Pharma Bro might as well have slithered into the courtroom. Several potential jurors in Martin Shkreli’s fraud case were dismissed after they told a federal judge they were disgusted by the mere sight of the former pharmaceutical CEO. “I looked right at him, and in my head, I said, ‘That’s a snake,’” one potential juror said before she was dismissed. Shkreli’s lawyer Benjamin Brafman probably sensed at that moment it was going to be a long day. “So much for the presumption of innocence,” Brafman said. About 40 people made the first cut from a pool of 178 potential jurors questioned Monday. The others

Republican Sen. Charles Grassley´s accusation that Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer lied about President Trump and the Russia investigation -- that Schumer said the president was under investigation after he, Schumer, had been specifically told by the FBI that Trump was not -- is shedding new light on the events that led to the president´s rising frustration over the Russia probe, the FBI, and Democrats who sought to make political hay out of Trump´s troubles. Start in January. As inauguration day approached, the Trump-Russia affair dominated media talk. The central question, then as now, was whether Trump or his associates colluded

Mr. Franken told the International Business Times on Monday that those hoping that the FBI’s investigation into Russia’s attempts to influence the 2016 election will pave the way for impeachment should consider Vice President Mike Pence’s policy preferences. “Pence ran the transition and some of the very worst nominees, I felt — [EPA chief Scott] Pruitt, [Education Secretary Betsy] DeVos, [HHS Secretary Tom] Price, [Budget director Mick] Mulvaney — were Pence selections, clearly, I

North Korean treatment of Western prisoners

North Korea´s deplorable record of human rights offenses speaks for itself. But the most curious element of the Otto Warmbier tragedy is why the young student may have been so badly mistreated at the hands of his captors, who some survivors say are strangely cordial to Western prisoners. Consider the case of Matthew Todd Miller, a California man who in 2014 was sentenced to six years of forced labor in North Korea. Miller, who was released six months later, says he was actually treated rather well and even was allowed to keep his iPhone and iPad for at least a month.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer is leading a search for his own replacement on the briefing room podium as part of a larger plan to shake up the White House communications operation, according to two people with knowledge of the effort. Last week, Spicer and White House chief of staff Reince Priebus reached out to Fox News contributor Laura Ingraham about the role of press secretary and Daily Mail editor David Martosko about the role of communications director, according to a White House official. Spicer and Priebus have had preliminary discussions with Ingraham, and Martosko met with chief strategist Steve Bannon

CNN has been on a 24/7 mission to knock President Trump out of office -- or, failing that, discredit him with whatever it can. How bad is it? On Saturday, CNN openly sided with Cuba´s communist regime as it slammed Trump for rolling back former president Barack Obama´s steps to expand relations with Cuba. So it´s must be a real heartbreaker for the bigwigs at CNN to see the network´s new poll on Trump. "Should Trump be investigated for obstruction of justice?" the poll asks (remembering to include a very unflattering picture of the president). As of Monday morning, 2,698,604

The report also stated that Fisher had a “remote exposure to MDMA.” Though Fisher had multiple substances in her system,

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

The expiration of mayoral control of city schools could cost the city up to $1.6 billion over 10 years — and the city would go after the state for the bill, according to a memo from de Blasio administration officials. Deputy Mayor Anthony Shorris estimates that scrapping mayoral control and going back to the old system of local school boards would cost between $125 million and $160 million a year. Costs would soar because under the old system, there were more than 6,000 employees doing administrative jobs across 38 community and high school districts in 2002, not counting central staff.

After two days and almost six hours of high-stakes public testimony, I’m struck by the total lack of any compelling claims supporting the “big” collusion narrative, that Russia conspired with Trump or Trump officials to “hack” election. While we certainly aren’t privy to all the relevant information or all the relevant testimony, nothing that James Comey said last week or that Jeff Sessions said today (much less any of the questions directed his way) contained so much as a meaningful hint that the Committee was on the verge of uncovering the political scandal of the century.

Former national security adviser and UN ambassador Susan Rice refuses to go quietly into retirement, even though she remains one of the most controversial figures of the Obama Administration. Now, thanks to a glowing profile in New York Magazine, we know that despite Susan Rice’s very public shortcomings (whatever happened to that dastardly filmmaker who spurred violence across the Middle East, anyway?), she believes any criticism of her tenure is at least partly the result of racism and sexism. When asked why she became a “target” in the Trump Administration, she replied, “I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about

Just days before he resigns from Congress, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said Monday that House and Senate lawmakers should receive a $2,500 per month housing allowance — something he explained would help ease housing costs for members who can’t afford two mortgages or rents. “I really do believe Congress would be much better served if there was a housing allowance for members of Congress,” Chaffetz told The Hill in an interview in his Capitol office, where he sleeps whenever he’s in Washington. “In today’s climate, nobody’s going to suggest or vote for a pay raise. But you shouldn’t have to be

Ohio Gov. John Kasich came out against the Senate Republican health care bill Sunday, saying both Republicans and Democrats need to do a better job at helping poor people. “Both parties ought to be worried about poor people, because I don’t think either party particularly cares about helping poor people,” Mr. Kasich, who lost the Republican Party’s presidential nomination to President Trump last year, told CNN’s Dana Bash. “You look at the rates of poverty, the problems in this country,” he continued. “We have not designed a system to get people work. Everything we’re talking about now — getting people

Actor and filmmaker Rob Reiner was shredded by social media users over the weekend after he called for an “all out war” to resist President Donald Trump. Writing on Twitter Sunday, the All in the Family star mentioned a Fox News report about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 election. “When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war. US-Stay strong. #Treason,” he wrote. (Tweet) Reiner’s remarks were slammed by several social media users, many of them suggesting that the actor’s tweet

A U.S. warship struck by a container vessel in Japanese waters failed to respond to warning signals or take evasive action before a collision that killed seven of its crew, according to a report of the incident by the Philippine cargo ship´s captain.

The New York Daily News’ senior justice writer Shaun King blasted Christians Monday for perpetrating white supremacy for their support of President Donald Trump’s immigration halt. King put out a series of tweets accusing Christians who supported the halt of “fake faith” after the Supreme Court allowed Trump’s immigration ban to go into effect. (Snip) “To support a ban on immigrants & refugees, while calling yourself a Christian, is not faith, it’s white supremacy disguised as religion,” King tweeted.

Al Gore is ‘an idiot’ who only made his vast fortune just because he happened to get lucky by obsessing about climate change. Possibly we’d all guessed this already. Now it has been confirmed by an expert in the field of finance – Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway vice chairman and fellow investment billionaire Charlie Munger. Munger, who was speaking at an informal investors’ Q & A – recorded here – clearly does not rate Gore’s intelligence or investment acumen. “Al Gore has come into you fellas business, Munger said. “He has made $3 or $400 million in your business. And

The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date. Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S. That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as

Hillary Clinton cited a study showing young people who read the Harry Potter series are "more compassionate" toward immigrants and LGBT community members during her speech Tuesday in Chicago. Clinton made the reference while delivering a speech at the American Library Association´s annual conference, as fans of the popular book series celebrated the 20th anniversary of the first novel´s release. "Years of data suggest that reading fiction builds empathy," she said. "It helps us put ourselves in others´ shoes. One study even found that young people who read the Harry Potter books, which first came out 20 years ago this week, were

Losing presidential candidates over the past quarter century have tended to become more popular in the months following the election. But former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has broken that trend, according to Gallup. The latest Gallup poll reveals that a majority of Americans, 57 percent, continue to view Secretary Clinton unfavorably. There has been no change in this percentage since January 2017. Clinton’s favorable rating hit an all-time low, 38 percent, early September last year. The highest it has ever been was 67 percent, which was in 1998 when she was first lady.
