John Dean revealed the answer on Olbermann’s show today. And the answer is …

Financial Information to Embarrass the Democrats. Nixon had a tip that there was a kick-back scheme related to the Miami convention.

    I saw this on tv, and was interested to hear John Dean’s aside on what the “Silent Coup” crap had put him through. With this new information out, it would ALMOST be fun to listen to Gordon Liddy assplode about the whole thing, and hear him gyrate as he once again tries to blame all of Watergate on John Dean.

    Yes, because this is far far worse then when Bill Moyers (everyone’s favorite sanctimonious liberal asshole) went on his witch hunts outing homosexual political opponents to help his boss LBJ. Like when Moyers ordered the FBI to investigate Goldwater’s staff see what kind of dirt they could dig up on them.

    And who could remember the efforts, spearheaded by both Kennedy and Johnson, to spread rumors about civil rights worker. Do we need to recap the dirty tricks campaign against King?

    But you are right Mr Laden, those nasty Republicans … so much worse then their democrat counterparts.
