Had their been something juicy on there about the Republican Party, you can be assured it would not have been erased.
Or does the public believe that the secretary decided to erase that part, and leave the rest (which was incriminating to the Republicans)?
I heard somewhere the whole thing started with an investigation of a prostitution ring involving John Dean’s wife, Maureen.
IIRC, right before the gap he talks about the burlgars being cuban, and how if it gets out it could “blow the whole Cuban thing” or something to that affect.
I always wondered if he was referring to the Bay of Pigs, as I believe the Cuban guys in the break-in were involved with Kennedy and the Bay of Pigs.
The whole break-in was Dean’s business anyway - may he rot in hell someday. (From the excellent book “Silent Coup”).
