Charles Colson, one of the casualties of Watergate

Filed under: Politics — admin @ 12:29 am

On the weekend of 4/22, I learned of the death of Charles Colson, the former special counsel to President Richard Nixon. He was infamous for being unscrupulous in helping Nixon with re-election.

Another infamous casualty of Watergate is Attorney General John Mitchell. Both of them shared the same problem with Richard Nixon, that is, shamelessly lying and knowingly violating the law, which brought about the final downfall of all of them.

Watergate scandal provides a rich and unique lesson for everybody. The best and the most exciting book on Watergate scandal is All the President’s Men by Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward, 1974. It is a must for anyone who wants to understand this scandal.
