The Mysterious Life and Death of James McCord

Recommended Posts

Joe and Jim -

Sorry that you're both dealing with health issues.  It's extremely frustrating, and I wish you both nothing but the best whether you're in your golden years, rust or otherwise!   I look forward to reading more from both of you as we go forward with discussions here.

Watching the CNN "TRICKY DICK" series on TV last night and in the Watergate section James McCord is prominently covered.

Amazing documentary.

The secret White House tapes are so damaging, it's hard to believe they were ever allowed to be made.

Wonder what Doug Caddy has to say about the Watergate coverage since he was right there in mix initially?

Every time James McCord's craggy, deep lined, darkly intelligent looking face was shown I couldn't help but imagine look alike actor Gene Hackman portraying McCord in some film.

Hackman pulled off an amazing McCord type performance in his 1998 film "Enemy Of The State."

The foreman of Watergate grand jury No. 1 has been watching the confrontations with another president

Washington Post

April 15, 2019

From the article: Pregelj said his grand jury interacted little with Sirica or the special prosecutor, but grew close to the assistant prosecutors who worked with them day-to-day after they were convened June 5, 1972.

After three weeks of hearing routine street and violent crimes, they got the case of the June 17 Watergate burglary. When one burglar — James W. McCord Jr., a former CIA officer providing security for the Nixon campaign — began cooperating, it unraveled a scheme that occupied three grand juries over more than two years.

What a story.

25 of the "Law And Order" President's closest associates went to prison!

25!

The WHOLE Nixon team!

Because they were ALL lying, constitution disrespecting and violating crooks!

And the majority of American voters in 1972 stupidly bought into the mass media manipulated lie and charade that Nixon was a more decent and patriotic "Law And Order" candidate and WW II bomber pilot hero McGovern was somehow this dangerous, disloyal and radical threat.

Watergate revealed the true opposite reality.

To me, the 1972 presidential election exposed the weakness of a majority of Americans in their malleability in accepting highly propagandized false realities when it comes to evaluating candidates in presidential elections.

Doug, in your opinion, did McCord do something good in his opening up and with good intentions?

McCord remains a mystery to me to this day. That said, he was the only one of the original seven defendants that sought me out to thank me for what I had done to protect their legal rights to a fair trial. He did this at the beginning of the first Watergate trial in January 1973. Hunt invited me to an appreciative dinner just before he want to prison in 1975 but at the dinner he never uttered a word of thanks even though I had allowed myself to be held in contempt of court by vicious and venal Judge Sirica to protect his and the other defendants' attorney-client privilege and the Sixth Amendment Right to Counsel.

I talked about this article on McCord for this week's installment of Black Op Radio.

When you google James McCord its on the first page.

When you google death of James McCord its number one.

 

Again, thanks to Rob and Stephanie for their help.
