  1. You know, Richard Nixon actually committed an act of treason during the Vietnam War. While Nixon was running for President in 1968, President Lyndon Johnson wanted to begin new peace talks between the North and South to try to end the war within the next year or 2 (and some believe that this could have worked had Vice President Hubert Humphrey won in 1968). However, Nixon secretly contacted the leaders of both sides in Vietnam and basically told them to not make any deal with Johnson and wait until after the election, because if Nixon won he promised to provide both with a better deal which (unknown to the public at the time) was his "secret plan" as he called it. According to the U.S. Constitution, Treason (which is the ONLY crime fully defined within the document) is providing aid or comfort to an enemy that we are fighting during a time of war. And even when President Johnson called Nixon to confront him on this, Johnson knew Nixon was obviously lying when Nixon said that he wasn't preventing Johnson's new peace talks from happening, but Johnson couldn't do anything about it. So yeah, Richard Nixon committed an actual act of treason but the public didn't know about this potentially damaging piece of evidence that could hurt him as President and the United States when they had voted for him in 1968, and it's thanks to this action by Nixon that the Vietnam War lasted an additional 5 years and costs thousands more American lives.

  2. Personally l believe that Nixon was the force behind the asination of President Kennedy. Nixon was humiliated by Kennedy on the first ever Presidential debate on television, and went on to defeat Nixon in the election.

  3. This type of press from Woodward and Bernstein is what kept our country free and safe. They did not allow politicians to get away with dividing and trying to destroy our country. They held BOTH parties accountable. Today's press is lazy. Looking at their phones for stories and writing books about Trump. Price gouging is going on by big oil and getting record profits. When grocery stores price gouged like they are today, Sam Donaldson and Diane Sawyer went into stores with hidden camaras to expose it when I was a kid. Where is that today? FOX News is funded by Putin, including "hosts" and "anchors" on the network. They attack our country 24/7 why is that not exposed?

  4. When both, Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. are both on together, It's a must watch interview.
    These guys are the ultimate timeline capsule. I love these guys for what they do and still doing it.
    Thank you, Bob & Carl. Your the best of the best.

  6. ***it is wonderful & a wake-up call to see 2 veteran journalists to continue on with reminding americans how critical & severe this is to see our democracy is in danger ⚠️ caused by both trump & nixon administrations when it comes to presidential elections, when it comes to acknowledging the importance of rule of law in this process including acknowledging the importance of the process of having “a peaceful transfer of power” after a decisive decision is made for our future commander in chief is chosen from presidental elections. both trump & nixon have expressed numerous violations in these areas. in trump’s case, the 01/06 committee is releasing ALL FINDINGS in how trump violated the process of the 2020 presidential election that lead to 01/06 US capitol insurrection.***
