Long-sealed Watergate documents may be released
By JESSICA GRESKO | Associated Press Sat, Jun 2, 2012
WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. Department of Justice says at least some materials sealed as part of the court case against seven men involved in the 1972 Watergate burglary should be released.
The agency responded Friday to a request by a Texas history professor who is seeking access to materials he believes could help answer lingering questions about the burglary that led to President Richard Nixon's resignation.
Luke Nichter of Texas A&M University-Central Texas in Killeen, Texas, wrote the chief judge of the federal court in Washington to ask that potentially hundreds of pages of documents be unsealed. The judge said in a letter made public earlier this year that the professor had "raised a very legitimate question" about whether the material should remain sealed, and he ordered the Department of Justice to respond with any objections.
Justice attorney Elizabeth Shapiro wrote in a court document filed Friday that the office would not oppose the release of at least some documents.

But...they didn't. It was a ruse and the Republican party leaders fell for it.
The Repubs were no angels, but compared to what the DEMS were actually DOING and GETTING AWAY with, the 'DEAN' connection was nothing. I mean, he ended up marrying her.
Now, let's turn to the DEMS parties, with underage boys provided for sexual pleasure from the Omaha Boy's Town and by a man named FRANKLIN.
OH.... bet you never heard of that one, did ya?
Even if a bunch of Kennedy assassins got together for a night on the town, and a little breaking and entering thrill, it is nothing compared to the government corruption “Fast and Furious,” and the coverup by Holder Obama and Neapolitan.
Nope, I have not. But would not surprise me at all.
I wonder if there will be anything about Maureen Dean in the released documents.
notice as things grow bad for dems they release more watergate docs?
OK spill the beans on FRANKLIN...It’s just rumors or ya got a blue dress?
Why? Why now? What's the ulterior political motive?
Will this be done so that questions that may come up about The Won in connection with whatever scandal is about to break wide open can be answered with a deflection such as "not nearly as bad as what was done in Watergate"?
In 1974 she was a member of the impeachment inquiry staff in Washington, D.C., advising the House Committee on the Judiciary during the Watergate scandal. Under the guidance of Chief Counsel John Doar and senior member Bernard Nussbaum, Rodham helped research procedures of impeachment and the historical grounds and standards for impeachment. The committee's work culminated in the resignation of President Richard Nixon in August 1974. (Source: Wikipedia)
I think there is a good possibility that Colby was killed because of the Franklin Cover Up
btw, maybe you don’t know this..but Franklin involved Republicans- including at least one victim identifying Bush as being at the get togethers.
There are a variety of sources,and one must filter the wheat from the chaff oneself.
GOOGLE "Franklin Boy's Town Scandal".
It's not hard.
And it shouldn't.
The phrase "Absolute power corrupts, absolutely" comes to mind.
You see, when you have the power to fulfill your whims, soon you become bored with 'normal' things. Women throng to powerful men, so it is easy for them. Then... they desire what is forbidden, because only that gives them 'pleasure'.
That is why those who become very 'wealthy' and 'famous' usually end up dead. Money and fame lose their lustre. Onwards and downwards to drugs and 'prohibited' acts of lust, they go.
Politicians have more ability to keep their 'acts' suppressed than Hollywood Celebrities, so mostly we only hear about it happening to the Celebs.
And he wasn't the only one.
There is a video on Yotube about this scandal. It was originally scheduled to air on a network but was pulled before it could air. Very disturbing material.
It is very possible he was there. BUT... was he participating in the 'back room activities'?
Was he aware of what was going on?
Who knows. I would suggests that he just kept his nose out of it.
I think that the 'powerful' officials have been doing this kind of thing for longer than the US has been a country.
One question is 'why'?
Other than the excitement of a prohibited act , IMHO it is because 'boys' don't get pregnant.
She even proposed that Nixon be denied the right of legal representation.
