If you missed Watergate exposed last night at Miller

   Last night at the Miller Library Phil Mellinger, who has researched the Watergate scandal, spoke about some of his findings and conclusions for some of the remaining questions from that scandal.  Two questions that have been unanswered was who fed Mark Felt, aka "Deep Throat", the information that he gave to Bob Woodward of the Washington Post.  Even as Deputy Director of the FBI Mr. Felt would not have had access to the information he passed to Woodward. Mr. Mellinger fingered John Dean as the person who pass the information to Mr. Felt. You can see his theory at this link.

     The second question to be answered was "What information was Nixon and his cronies attempting to find in the Watergate break in?"  Mr. Mellinger showed the attendees information that he received from the Lyndon Johnson Library that indicates that the information was about the Nixon campaign in 1968 had communicated with the South Vietnamese President to not join the peace negotiations that the Johnson Administration was attempting to set up to end the Vietnamese War.  It is possible that Nixon or his campaign associates felt that an end to the Vietnam War would elect Hubert Humphrey President. If this is true then Nixon would have been in deep trouble with his re-election in 1972 and possibly of treason.
