Nixon had one of his subordinates request an audit against one of his opponents. The result was that NIXON was audited. The Dems have always controlled that agency, and have used it regularly against conservatives. They were very active doing Clinton’s bidding in the 90’s.
When the late Charles Colson became a “born-again Christian” after being Nixon’s WH Counsel, he wrote letters of apology to those he had gone after as the ‘hatchet man’ of the administration.
One was sent to Dr. Carl McIntire, radio preacher who led mass rallies for call for a victory in the Vietnam War in opposition to the “Paris Peace Talks” with the Communists launched by Nixon and Henry Kissinger.
The Nixon FCC shut down a radio station he owned on Fairness Doctrine grounds.
Both parties have used dirty tricks with GOP in Nixon’s case hitting liberals and the conservatives who weren’t moderates like him.
Interesting. Thanks for sharing.
