50 Years Ago, The Watergate Was Burgled

Nixon Library

June 17 marks the 50th anniversary of the break-in of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) headquarters located on the 6th floor of the Watergate Hotel and Office complex in Washington, DC. The investigation into the break-in exposed a number of controversial actions (collectively known as “Watergate”) that led to the highest levels of the Nixon administration and ultimately to the President himself.

The June 17 break-in was not the first burglary conducted by the intruders (also known as the “Plumbers”). They had successfully gained access to the DNC offices on May 28, during which they planted listening devices and photographed documents. More

The National Portrait Gallery has an exhibition “Watergate: Portraiture and Intrigue” until September 5th if you’re visiting the capital this Summer. Here

There’s also a new book out this year, “Watergate: A New History,” by Garrett Graff which purports to be both a fresh look and a more extensive history of the Watergate scandal era. Graff discussing his new book. Here

  1. Bringing up Watergate because they can’t even tell interesting lies about January 6th any more.

    Playing the hits, as it were.

    Just Democrats doing what Democrats do, anything to divide and keep hate alive…

  2. Granpappy Clinton was involved, no doubt 😉

    Hillary gave the first inklings of what a corrupt piece of excrement she would be during the hearings. – Dr. Tar

    No thanks, I know of a number of Americans that visited the capital and are still there….against their will.

  4. I was thinking about watergate the other day. That isn’t shit compared to what’s happening these days. So lame those demoncrats are.

  5. I’m actually surprised the MSM isn’t doing anything to celebrate what they usually regard as their high-water mark of “activist journalism.”

    Have Woodward or Bernstein even surfaced lately to sing their own praises?

    It’s almost like they don’t want to remind us of how corruption plays out in the executive branch before an election.

  6. Watergate : To be thought of as the

    CRIME OF THE CENTURY

    In spite of Ted Kennedy’s 1968 homicide

    THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY

    In spite of Whitewater where more than
    40 people died prior to their
    scheduled grand jury testimony

    Incredibly more than half died of suicides.

    Although among these “suicides” several
    were from back of the head gunshots.

    In spite of claims otherwise nearly
    none of this was totally investigated.

    And nearly all of it was a

    ” WHITE WASH ”

    YET

    WATERGATE was without question

    THE CRIME OF THE CENTURY

    and nobody

    by the name of

    KENNEDY, RODHAM, nor CLINTON

    should ever be put in prison.

    BTW

    Nobody died because of the Watergate burglary!

    Yet, it was the CRIME OF THE CENTURY!

  7. A year and a half ago the whole country was burgled.
    But they started much longer ago as we all know.
