28. I think the Anna Chennault Affair of 1968 is the key to Watergate...

...Nixon had essentially committed treason to win the White House, and he was obsessed with keeping it secret, and learning what the Dems knew about it all. Thus--the Watergate break-in. Certainly, Nixon was hiding something much bigger than a cover-up of a burglary. Something that *still* hasn't come out yet...and here's a piece of utterly baseless paranoia. Could LBJ have been murdered? At the moment he died, the Watergate affair was slowly unraveling, and mutual blackmail was going on between just about everybody. LBJ had been good and pissed about the 1968 shenanigans, and Nixon *knew* he was pissed. Could the Plumbers have helped LBJ on to his eternal reward? Like I said--just baseless speculation...but I've always wondered about it...
I'd also add that I think Woodrow Wilson, as well as LBJ and Nixon, was clearly paranoid by 1919. Read about his behavior at Versailles...and his actions when he returned home...it's spooky...
