Reports that President Trump asked former FBI Director James Comey to halt an investigation on former national security advisor Michael Flynn have some drawing parallels to the infamous Watergate scandal.
Haldeman called Walters and Helms to the White House, where he said that the bugging of the Watergate was creating a lot of noise, that the opposition was attempting to maximize this, that the FBI was investigating this and the leads might lead to some important people, and he asked Mr. Helms what the Agency connection was, Walters told a Senate committee in September 1973. Mr. Helms replied quite emphatically that there was no agency connection and Mr. Haldeman said that nevertheless, the pursuit of the FBI investigation in Mexico might uncover some CIA activities or assets.
The claims of White House involvement in the Watergate cover-up remained there until July 1974, when, after a year-long battle for access to the tapes Nixon recorded of his conversations resulted in the release of the June 23, 1972, smoking gun tape of the conversation between Haldeman and Nixon in which the president signed off on having the CIA block the investigation.
The House Judiciary Committee was then considering articles of impeachment against Nixon. In the first article, it said that Nixon, using the powers of his high office, engaged personally and through his close subordinates and agents, in a course of conduct or plan designed to delay, impede, and obstruct the investigation of such illegal entry; to cover up, conceal and protect those responsible; and to conceal the existence and scope of other unlawful covert activities.
The release of the smoking gun tape made that passage of the article of impeachment irrefutable. Almost immediately, 10 reluctant Republican members of the Judiciary Committee said they would vote for impeachment. Nixon's presidency was over. He said on Aug. 8,1974, that he would resign the following day. Shortly after noon on Aug. 9, 1974, he addressed his staff, stepped into his Marine helicopter and levitated from the South Lawn of the White House and to exile in California.

When is a salad not a salad but really a super yummy side dish that is actually a dessert? When it is Watergate Salad. Chock full of creamy Pistachio flavor, marshmallows, nuts and topped with Maraschino Cherries, this yummy treat was served at every holiday meal my Great-Grandmother ever cooked for us. She used Dream Whip instead of Cool Whip, but other than that, this is her recipe handed down through the generations. Some people might call it old-fashioned but we call it a classic and still make it to this day. Jwi!
Step 7: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight or for at least 2-3 hours so the flavors can meld together. Serve chilled with a sprinkle of nuts and topped with maraschino cherries. If you are going full-out dessert, more of a Pistachio Fluff than a Watergate Salad you can add a dollop of whipped cream to the top along with the cherries. Yum! Store in the refrigerator in an airtight container, the Watergate Salad should last 2-3 days.
