this is totally baseless besides conspiracy theory, but i'm thinking Nixon arranged his own political scandal to prove to Russia that he didn't need power like Stalin, even though he was perfectly capable of maintaining it. as i said before, i have nothing to back this up besides the events surrounding the incident, but i think it fits his personality.

I think he was just a paranoid fuck who didn't want to loose an election.

And wait, wasn't Nixon reelected despite Watergate?

I have this feeling that the scandal broke just before the 72 election?

(I have this feeling because I vaguely remember a paragraph about it in Fear and Loathing on the campaign Trail '72, perhaps not the most factual account of that particular election...)
