Back on topic-I met Nixon when he was campaigning for Eisenhower's second term. He came to my hometown on a train and I was charged by my Cub Scout troop with giving a bouquet of flowers to Mrs. Nixon. He was a nice man and today he would be considered somewhat of a 'liberal.'

Just when you think (dems) someone is the worse,
you wake up today and and think Your man can do no wrong.... How do you think history will record
Obama as a president? Will lies cover up on the
things that have happened during the 8yrs the people have witnessed. NOT one person(?) would
think of impeachment, now would you? Cover-ups
happened, no one dies as a result....depends....
on who and what as to what we ignore.....ITS
the call of the people and their mentality

Yeah, that's pretty much what all losers say. If that's what it takes to make you feel better, then knock yourself out, dude.

Meanwhile, back in the real world ....

Nixon's presidency was the diving line.

There hasn't been a single Republican with
integrity since Eisenhower. Nothing but a
bunch of Wall Street grifters, liars, swindlers,
bribe-taking, oath-breaking criminals.

Eisenhower was sort of a mediocrity as president,
but integrity-wise, he was a giant compared to
this batch of Republican money-grubbing shysters who have infected the country since his time in office.

I'll be happy to remember Tricky Dick with a one-finger salute in the direction of San Clemente.

Sadly, he'd be considered a "liberal" in today's political world, which says a lot about it - none of it good.

Rest in pieces, dirty Dick!:)

You surely do need someone to support your made-up Benghazi narrative.

Unfortunately, the original Deep Throat in Nixon's day was telling the truth about Watergate. Your side of the aisle has lost it's ability to do that in recent years.

Sucks to be you, huh? ;)

In 1973, Nixon was president and barnstorming through the White House trying to plug all the leaks that were spouting over Watergate, and recording it on tapes for posterity. He urgently needed $120,000 to pacify E. Howard Hunt, a former CIA official, who had organized the Watergate burglary. It is possible that this money came from Carlos.

There were many people who believed that Nixon and the Mafia were bedfellows. Martha Mitchell, wife of the former Attorney General told UPI reporters, "Nixon is involved with the Mafia." Nixon's chief of staff, General Haig, even ordered an investigation into the president's Mob ties through the Army's Criminal Investigation Unit.

In 1972, Richard Nixon arranged an unprecedented presidential pardon for New Jersey mobster, Angelo DeCarlo, a feared killer and capo in the Genovese crime family. It seemed that Nixon was paying back favours for more financial contributions to his re-election campaign. If Nixon was linked to the Mob, there can be little doubt that one of his connections to it was Marcello.

By 1972, Carlos was sixty-two years old, richer and more powerful, possibly the most powerful Mafia boss in the nation. His only contender to this title may have been Carlo Gambino, the ageing don who ran what was perhaps the biggest [Mafia] family in the country, based in Brooklyn. The House Select Committee on Crime declared in 1972, "We believe Carlos Marcello has become a formidable menace to the institution of government and the people of the United States."

Called before the committee in June, Carlos was his old self. Formed to investigate the Mob's infiltration of professional sports, members grilled Carlos on his criminal ties. As usual, they got zilch. Repeating a well-worn story, he told his congressional inquisitors: ".... I'm not in no [Mafia].... not in no racket, and not in organized crime."

In June 1971, the FBI reorganized its New Orleans office and appointed a young, tenacious agent called Harold Hughes as head of a strike force to target Marcello. By 1972, with the death of J. Edgar Hoover, the FBI was finally able to exert real pressure on the Louisiana Mafia. By the mid 1970's, pressure was also building up on him from another direction.

In 1973, the first book was published on the assassination of President Kennedy, pointing a finger at Marcello; although in 1969, famous crime writer Ed Reid in his book The Grim Reapers had hinted at a possible connection. In 1976, an Italian documentary film called The Two Kennedys specifically nailed the Mafia as the force behind the murders of the brothers, again naming Marcello as the principal suspect.
