Re: This Brotha Caused a President to Resign From Office


This excerpt cuts to the chase on what caused the President to resign? It was either resign or be IMPEACHED.

]Link for excerpt.


"On August 5, 1974, the long sought after audio tapes provided the "smoking gun" which revealed President Nixon had been deeply involved in the coverup and had ordered Haldeman to halt the FBI investigation just six days after the Watergate break-in. (Real Audio :06 "...call the FBI and say that we wish, for the country, don't go any further into this case, period..." -- Nixon to Haldeman, June 23, 1972.)

The revelation resulted in complete collapse of support for Nixon in Congress. On Friday, August 9, Nixon resigned the presidency and avoided the likely prospect of losing the impeachment vote in the full House and a subsequent trial in the Senate. He thus became the only U.S. President ever to resign. Vice President Gerald R. Ford succeeded him and a month later granted Nixon a full pardon for any crimes he might have committed while President.
Richard Nixon had served a total of 2,026 days as the 37th President of the United States. He left office with 2 1/2 years of his second term remaining. A total of 25 officials from his administration, including four cabinet members, were eventually convicted and imprisoned for various crimes."

Part of Frank Wills' Story is in Spike Lee's movie "She Hate Me." It's about lesbianism and whistle blowing. Frank Wills story was inserted into the theme of the movie.

Birth: Feb. 4, 1948
North Augusta
Aiken County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Sep. 27, 2000
Avondale (Richmond County)
Richmond County
Georgia, USA

Security guard at the Watergate office complex. On duty on the night of June 17, 1972, he noticed a strip of tape holding a door unlocked. He removed the tape and when he later saw another piece of tape in its place, he became suspicious and called the District of Columbia police. The unlocked door led to the offices of the Democratic National Committee. Inside, police found a group of burglars, some with electronic bugging equipment. The burglars had ties to the Committee to Reelect the President (Nixon) and thus began the Watergate scandal that 22 months later forced President Nixon to resign. Though Wills played himself in the movie "All The President's Men" that told the story of the Watergate scandal, Wills never recovered from his moments of fame. He returned home to South Carolina in the mid 1970s, cared for his stroke victim mother for several years before her death in 1993, and died penniless.
