Fox News host Tucker Carlson conducted an explosive segment suggesting that President Richard Nixon was removed from office because he knew the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was involved in the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy and was asking too many questions.
The eye-opening segment came when Carlson was discussing Joe Biden’s classified documents scandal, suggesting an operation against the current president to keep him from running again.
Because, as he notes, if he is impeached or removed for real crimes that are devastating to this country, it will bring a lot of people down with him.
“Washington is defending itself,” he said, adding that the Justice Department is punishing the president. “Joe Biden is solely responsible for this crime. Only he took home classified documents.
Enter an American history lesson courtesy of Mr. Carlson. What you may not be aware of involves Nixon, who is often portrayed as a criminal or a ‘fraud’ by the American media, and with Watergate as the absolute pinnacle of political crime.

Tucker Carlson went on to draw a link between Biden’s current scandal and what he thinks is an “eternal Washington” that shares a similar trajectory to changing the course of history.
He began by pointing out that Nixon was “the most popular president in American history” but was somehow “thrown out of office and replaced two years later by the only elected president in American history”.
People forget, but Richard Nixon was on his way to a 49-state sweep in the 1972 election when he was accused of organizing a gang of thieves to break into the DNC. What was the purpose of the care? what Is the DNC doing it?
And that’s when Carlson’s theory gets really interesting.

“On June 23, 1972, Nixon met with then-CIA director Richard Helms at the White House,” the Fox host explained. “During the conversation, which was thankfully tape-recorded, Nixon pointed out who ‘shot John,’ meaning President John F. Kennedy.”
“Nixon suggested that the CIA was directly involved in the Kennedy assassination, which we now know,” he said. “The response Helms says? Absolute silence.”
Richard Helms, of course, was the CIA director of projects beginning in 1962.
The Fox News host has previously dismissed the claim, going so far as to point to an unnamed source who said, “Yes, the CIA was involved in the assassination of JFK.”
According to Carlson, the Washington Post and Bob Woodward began publishing a “dishonest” report about the break-in at the Watergate Hotel.
“Unbeknownst to Nixon and unreported by the Washington Post, four of the five burglars worked for the CIA,” he correctly reported.

Carlson turned his attention to Woodward, who he noted was “not a journalist” at the time, but had a “top-secret clearance” at the Pentagon and “worked regularly with intel agencies.”
“Woodward was hired by the most powerful news outlet in Washington and assigned the biggest story in the country,” Carlson said, despite his lack of credentials for the job.
“To make it crystal clear what was really going on, Woodward’s main source on the Watergate series was FBI Deputy Director Mark Felt,” he added. Of course, the infamous “Deep Throat” felt that his identity had been “unknown” for decades.
“And Mark Felt ran — and we’re not making this up — the FBI’s COINTELPRO program, which was designed to covertly discredit political actors that federal agencies wanted to destroy — people like Richard Nixon.”
The program involved directing FBI agents to surreptitiously enter homes without search warrants on nine separate occasions in 1972 and 1973.
The church’s ecclesiastical committee later investigated and exposed the illegal activities of the FBI.
Felt earned the distinction of Deep Throat in 2005 – a key source who provided Woodward and fellow reporter Carl Bernstein with crucial information about the Watergate scandal, which ultimately led to Nixon’s resignation.
Tucker explains step by step how Watergate was a CIA-FBI op against Richard Nixon. The Deep State staffed the Washington Post with fateful “reporter” Bob Woodward, and the FBI fed him information.

But, as The Political Insider reported in 2018, Woodward tends to embellish ‘facts’ and statements.
Legendary Washington Post editor Ben Bradlee, deeply involved with many intelligence agents such as Cord Meyer, openly expressed “fear in my soul” that Woodward had embellished aspects of his reporting on the Watergate scandal.
An element involving a “deep throat,” symbolized by a flowerpot, a colleague asserted “strained credibility.”
Woodward’s book has already been disavowed and discredited by General (Secretary of Defense) James Mattis and General (Chief of Staff) John Kelly. His references were made of hoaxes, a con on the public. As well as other stories and references. Woodward a Dem operative? Notice the time?

Carlson conveniently indicted Nixon’s vice president, Spiro Agnew, for tax evasion and forced him to resign, replacing him with “a colorless congressman from Grand Rapids named Gerald Ford.”
“What are Ford’s qualifications for the job?” he asked. “Well, he served on the Warren Commission, which cleared the CIA of responsibility for the assassination of President Kennedy.”
“Eight months later, Gerald Ford of the Warren Commission was president of the United States.”
Carlson hosted another interesting conversation about President Richard Nixon in the Fox Nation documentary “The Nixon Files.”
