I am ever so grateful to be promotion to an important investigative position for the FBI, however I must admit I am quite horrified at my first case. President Nixon killed by a reel of recording tape… talk about irony. This is not a time to joke around which is why I’ve been busy investigating several suspects to the murder of Richard Nixon and I am happy to say I have found quite some convincing ones. As you know, there were quite a few clues found in a White House trashcan that was very incriminating for a few suspects. After thorough investigation, my senses tell me that Jack Anderson and Tom Hayden were involved in the assassination, Jack being the brains, and Tom being the soul.

Wills removed the tape but noticed even more on his second round of the DNC, pushing him to call the police. This discovery lead to the investigation of 5 men found that night, leading into the investigation of Watergate. Although you may think this is incriminating for somebody directly involved in the Watergate scandal such as G.

Which is why I believe the duct tape belonged to Anderson, a man so obsessed with taking Nixon down, he wanted to follow in Nixon’s footsteps and take him down the same way Nixon planned to take down the democrats. It’s a stretch- I know, but wait until you hear what other incriminating evidence we found. Another clue found in the garbage were pumpkin seeds. This made me look to Alger Hiss and the pumpkin papers. …show more content…
Anderson, again, was an investigative reporter. Having a copy of these did not surprise me much. Going along with this investigative reporter lead, it would not surprise me too much if Anderson investigated the Watergate scandal a bit more in depth. I’m sure Anderson, the brilliant man he was, knew that Howard Johnson’s on Virginia Avenue was fairly close to the DNC Headquarters, the very place that members of Nixon’s administration stood and oversaw the 1972 DNC search by other members of Nixon’s administration. It doesn’t surprise me that Anderson retraced the Nixon administration’s footsteps. I mean first the duct tape, now this! Anderson was one of the BEST investigative reporters, he knew all the tricks. Anderson became so obsessed with Nixon, he focused all of his
