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.

CNN reported Monday that Hillary Clinton’s pastor Rev.

Clinton wrote the foreward to the book and is featured on the cover. CNN initially published a portion of the book which was a November 9th email Shillady had sent to Clinton with the title, "Sunday is Coming." Rev.

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 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

"People are talking about it," a Fox News employee told CNN. "Frankly, there´s confusion over it."

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

WASHINGTON — Reporter Andrew Feinberg says a Russian state-owned news site he once worked for pressured him to advance a conspiracy theory about the fatal shooting of Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich. Feinberg, who was the White House correspondent for Sputnik, first made the allegations when he left the Russian outlet in May. However, his story is newly relevant in light of a lawsuit filed this week that accused President Trump and the White House of playing a role in a “fake news” story designed to advance the same conspiracy theory. Feinberg started at Sputnik in January, just as

Lynch did not play during the game, and the Raiders’ coach said Lynch’s actions were a “non-issue.” Although Lynch said he has been doing this for 11 years, photos and videos show he stood on many occasions for the national anthem in recent years. Lynch reportedly was not present in the locker room after the game, according to CBS Sports. However, the Raiders’ coach, Jack Del Rio, said

BRIDGEWATER, N.J. — White House officials, under siege over President Trump’s reluctance to condemn white supremacists for the weekend’s bloody rallies in Charlottesville, Va., tried to clarify his comments on Sunday, as critics in both parties intensified demands that he adopt a stronger, more unifying message. A statement on Sunday — issued more than 36 hours after the protests began — condemned “white supremacists” for the violence that led to one death. It came in an email sent to reporters in the president’s traveling press pool, and was attributed to an unnamed representative. It was not attributed directly to Mr.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), America’s largest Muslim civil rights group, is calling on state and local governments all over the United States to tear down all monuments and memorials commemorating Confederate leaders and the short-lived Confederate States of America. CAIR joined several groups asking for the removal of Confederate memorials in the wake of a “Unite the Right” white supremacist rally that turned violent over the weekend. (Snip) Nihad Awad, CAIR’s national executive director, urged state and local governments to erase every symbol and every vestige of Confederate history immediately. “A fitting response to the deadly terror attack

Saturday was marked by bloodshed in Charlottesville, Virginia after an apparent white nationalist plowed into a crowd of counter-protesters in a blatant attack. And on the morning after, NBC’s Sunday Today put President Trump in their sights as they unloaded on him while appearing to pin the blame for the attack on him. At one point even claiming he “enjoys” the support he gets from the bigots who were rallying in Virginia. “President Trump condemned the violence there on Saturday but he did not specifically speak to the white nationalism that was on display,” complained Anchor Willie Geist as he was

Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett said he plans to sit during the national anthem for the entire season after staying on the bench for the anthem during Seattle’s first preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday. Bennett said he was motivated by the events in Charlottesville and wanted to speak out on racial injustice. On Sunday, Bennett remained on the bench with a towel around his shoulder pads while the rest of his teammates stood for the anthem. “First of all I want to make sure people understand I love the military — my father was in the military,” Bennett told reporters. “I love hot dogs like any other

President Donald Trump insisted on Monday that he and his administration forcefully denounce the ´evil´ embodied by white supremacists and other bigoted hate groups whose weekend rally in Virginia left one woman dead and 20 others injured. ´Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans,´ the president said at the White House. ´We are a nation founded on the truth that all of us are created equal.

Protesters toppled a Confederate monument in Durham, N.C. on Monday night. Video posted to Twitter shows protestors surrounding the statue and chanting "No KKK! No fascists! USA" as several protestors appear to pull down the statue with a rope. WNCN reports the statue was dedicated in Durham in 1924 and was located in front of a local government building. The statue represented a soldier who fought in the Civil War and an inscription on the front read "The Confederate States of America." One organizer of the protest told WNCN that toppling the statue was in response to the violence at a white supremacist

Dear John: You recently criticized the FBI for its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s e-mails. I am a retired FBI agent and extremely proud of my career and service. I feel compelled to write. Former FBI Director James Comey’s statements, testimony and behavior are truly abhorrent. Comey admitted under oath before Congress that the bureau did not utilize a federal grand jury in the Hillary e-mail investigation. Furthermore, he testified that in his experience, when dealing with attorneys, you can obtain information easier and faster than via a federal grand jury. Never, I repeat never, in my 25-year career have I or any FBI agent

‘We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides. On many sides.” Such was President Trump’s statement Saturday on the violence in Charlottesville, Va.Really: That was it.Yet “many sides” didn’t drive a car into a crowd, an evident act of terrorism that killed Heather Heyer, 32, and hospitalized many more, with some still in critical condition. It shouldn’t be that hard to summon up a few Trumpian terms like “losers” and “really, really bad people” to describe the hundreds of neo-Nazis, Klansmen, white supremacists and the like who descended on the

Sunday on MSNBC, former Vermont Governor, and DNC Chair Howard Dean said President Donald Trump didn’t “appear to have a shred of decency in him, not a shred.” Dean’s remarks were in reference to Trump’s reaction to the events in Charlottesville, VA a day earlier. Dean said, “Well, actually, being an incurable optimist, I was hoping — I thought this might be his moment, and it wasn’t. I have concluded the guy is totally incapable of exerting any moral leadership whatsoever. I think you’ll see that in poll numbers quickly. Even hardened Republicans who believe in the Trump program —
