WASHINGTON _ The FBI was asked by top aides to President Richard Nixon to "discreetly" look into the background and personal associations of the young political aide, Mary Jo Kopechne, who drowned in 1969 when Edward M. Kennedy's car careened off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island, newly released FBI documents show...

That’s it. Toss Nixon in, as if he left Mary Joe to die and didn’t report the accident until ten hours later.
Honest to God...
The only ‘dirt’ on Mary Jo Kopechne is the blanket of earth covering the grave that sack of sh!it Ted Kennedy sent her to far too early.
The $64 question is why is the report of whether Mary Jo was in Greece in August, 1968 still top secret and “redacted”.
“Nixon sought dirt on Mary Jo Kopechne, files show”
Maybe he should have first considered the dirt and how it got there on her casket.
Of course Hillary using the mysterious FBI files was totally different.......
Well that’s it for Nixon. Now the press won’t like him.
Hey who murdered Mary Jo Kopechne?
George Bush wasn’t available at the time.
It’s not exactly like it was a secret ~ except to the Leftwingtards.
I'm not sure how the FBI could help.
Inquiring into what happened and what the relationships were isn’t “looking for dirt”. Its “cold case” investigations.
I blame the voting majorities of people in Massachusetts that continued to send a murderer back to the Senate election after election.
And Clinton let a former bouncer who couldn’t get FBI clearance order, inspect, and copy the files on 850 Republicans and media personalities. He kept them for over a year before returning them.
I’d say Clinton was about the worst scum of a president outside of 0bama.
Ok, I’m too curious. What are you referring to?
Funny, but the FBI DIDN”T look into KENNEDY over the Mary Jo MURDER!!! OMG!!
Mmmmmm. If you read the article, it was actually John Dean who sought dirt on Mary Jo. What proof is there Nixon knew anything about it? Out of everyone involved in Watergate, Dean was the biggest weasel.
The hippy left is pathetic. They just can’t help trying to relive their salad days.
Wonder if anyone for a second considered that Kennedy staged a murder to silence this young woman.
For all his faults, Nixon knew the Kennedy family were slimebags.
Now what possible reason would Nixon want dirt on her?
Yep, she just stole them.
Probably not so much dirt on her as the possibility her acquaintences could blackmail Kennedy over his many transgressions.
The dirt on Mary Joe was that slime Kennedy when he was making the two-backed beast with her.
That makes sense.
My read on this is that, like the rest of us, Nixon wanted to know why and how Kennedy clearly got away with murder.
He looked into her relationships.
There’s a difference between trying to figure out why her death was covered up, and ‘digging up dirt’.
Isn’t it the truth. Where’s Walley when you need him?
If a Repub abandoned a girl to die, I wonder how many movies would have been made about it by now.
Its funny that, these days, instead of asking questions, journalists attack people who ask questions. Why didn’t Kennedy call for help? Why did he wait until the next day? Thats not weird, its weird that you should ask. Why does Obama have a social security number from a place he’s never been? Thats not weird either; its just weird that you should ask.
From the source document:
The FBI responded to Dean’s request on Oct. 23, 1969, but the part of the memo that discusses Kopechne’s travels is blacked out, leaving it a mystery whether she was in Greece or why the Nixon administration was interested in knowing it.
“If a Repub abandoned a girl to die, I wonder how many movies would have been made about it by now.”
Too many to count. And the perp’s name would live on in infamy and be synonymous with Hitler’s name.
True. I doubt Nixon wanted "dirt"on her for your reason or mine. However - the MSM will once again use Nixon as the distraction for the real crime here.
It's believed that Kopechne and/or Tyler leaked the information that Senator George Smathers would be JFK's VP in the 1964 election. This portended terrible consequences for LBJ -- Baker was almost as corrupt as LBJ and had already been convicted on relatively minor charges, I believe. LBJ would surely be next (JFK, RFK, and many of us little people were well aware if LBJ's corruption) and the more serious charges against Baker would be revived and include LBJ -- along with possible capital crime charges against LBJ.
Probably had nothing to do with that drunk killing Ms. Kopechne and -- if reports I've read are true -- joking about it the rest of his life.
It just shows the sickening entanglement that's our federal government -- back when it was just "Well.. yeah they're corrupt SOBs but they are our corrupt SOBs." Now the entanglement is an existential threat.
Jackie married Onassis in October 1968, maybe Teddy was there in August and they were curious if Mary Jo had accompanied/met him there, indicating an on-going affair ?
Follow the money, follow the booty.
Looking into her background does not mean he sought dirt on her. It could mean that he was looking for dirt on her boss.
You forgot to capitalize BIGGEST WEASEL. Please don't repeat that error in the future.
I apologize. It won’t happen again.
“George Bush wasnt available at the time.”
Since when does truth and logic enter in to the equation??
Too often people forget about the Clintons. Were it not for the Republican revolution in 1994, led by Newt Gingrich, Clinton would have been just as bad as Obama and his gang. The Republicans kept him in check. The Clintons may have been even more corrupt than Obama.
Good guess, thanks.
Teddy topped that.
