  9. E. Howard Hunt, one of the two admitted co-commanders, said under oath in congressional testimony that the reason for the first break-in was because G. Gordon Liddy "had information" from "a government agency" that "the Cuban government was supplying funds to the Democratic Party."

  15. A CIA front company set up in the early 1950s by then-CIA director Allen W. Dulles and his close associate, three-term New York Governor Thomas E. Dewey, political functionary in the so-called “Rockefeller Republican” wing of the GOP.
  17. The front company in question was the innocuously named Mary Carter Paint Company, which operated a national chain of paint stores but was set up to function as a covert CIA money-laundering operation.
  19. In 1958-59 Dewey and a number of associates used a reported $2 million in CIA funds to buy a controlling interest in the Crosby-Miller Corporation (headed by Dewey friend James Crosby), which was then merged with Mary Carter.
  21. Among other things, the new corporation laundered CIA money for arming the anti-Castro Cuban exiles. The company also launched into lucrative casino gambling enterprises in the Caribbean where the CIA was quite active during that period, having engaged the Lansky crime syndicate in now-thoroughly documented and widely known plots to topple Fidel Castro who had enraged the mob by closing down its Cuban gambling enterprises.
  23. Nixon advisor https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeb_Stuart_Magruder
  25. one of the watergate burglars https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bernard_Barker
  27. That the plan to burglarize the DNC and to bug the phones of its Chairman Larry O'Brien had originated before mid-April 1972 is strongly confirmed by a letter dated April 15, 1972, and addressed to legendary muckraking journalist Jack Anderson. The letter came from the New York publisher of the local Manhattan Tribune, William Haddad. Haddad, who was close to the Democratic Party, informed Anderson that he had learned from a New York private detective - later identified as A.J. Woolston-Smith who had provided Haddad with relevant information since December 1971 - that agents working for the Republicans were planning to wiretap phones in the DNC at the Watergate, especially the phone of Chairman O’Brien. According to Haddad, the operation was supposed to be carried out by the so-called “November Group, Inc.,” a New York City-based working group of leading PR people from the Big Apple that had been founded by G. Gordon Liddy a couple of months earlier to work out a strategy for promoting Nixon’s re-election on behalf of CREEP.
  29. Magruder was director of CREEP
  31. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_W._McCord_Jr. // this dude was responsible for the security of the November group
  33. this all had to do with O'Brien knowing about shady connections that nixon had.
  35. in 1968 O'Brien was appointed by then VP Hubert Humphrey to serve as the director of his presidential campaign and backed by Howard Hughes to be his public policy lobbyist
  37. Hubert Humphrey and John H. Meier https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_H._Meier#Howard_Hughes_adviser
  39. Richard Nixon’s brother, Donald Nixon, in his sworn testimony to the Senate Watergate Committee, stated that John Meier was the #2 man in the Hughes Organization.[5] This was at a time that Hughes was the wealthiest man in the world.
  41. It's said that Donald Nixon borrowed 205,000 from Hughes to start a Burger Chain and never repaid the money. During the 1960 presidential campaign information about this surfaced.

  45. hughes also gave money to this guy
  46. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Rebozo
  48. dude was said to be nixons best friend?
  50. In 1952 Dwight Eisenhower selected Richard Nixon to be his vice president. As George Smathers later admitted that "Bebe's level of liking Nixon increased as Nixon's position increased". One of the ways that Rebozo helped Nixon was to obtain large campaign contributions from Howard Hughes.
  52. Rebozo advised Richard Nixon about possible business investments. According to a FBI informant, the two men invested in Cuba when it was governed by the military dictator, Fulgencio Batista. Rebozo's business partner, Hoke Maroon, claimed that Nixon was also part-owner of the Coral Gables Motel.
  54. In 1960 Nixon attempted to become president of the United States. Rebozo helped raise funds and paid for an investigation into the private life of Nixon's opponent, John F. Kennedy. Rebozo sent Nixon documents claiming that Kennedy had previously been married to Durie Malcolm. However, this story was untrue and despite this smear campaign against Kennedy, Nixon was defeated.
  56. Rebozo became one of Nixon's closest political advisers. Rebozo also took a keen interest in Caribbean politics and had considerable business investments in the region. He therefore became one of the leading opponents of Fidel Castro after he gained power in Cuba.
  58. Rebozo also purchased land in Florida with a man called Richard Fincher. It was believed that Fincher worked as a front for Meyer Lansky. An examination of Fincher's telephone calls revealed that he was in regular contact with Carlos Marcello and Santo Trafficante. Vincent Teresa, a high-ranking mafioso, later admitted that he had used Rebozo's bank to launder stolen money.
  60. Rebozo was eventually dragged into the Watergate Scandal. During the investigation, a $100,000 donation from Howard Hughes that was meant for the Republican Party, was found in a safe-deposit box owned by Rebozo.
