Nicholas Cowdery QC, Bernard Collaery and Senator Nick Xenophon
Imagine Watergate if the Democrats, and many Republicans, had never been interested in pursuing it. And if the American media -- not just The Washington Post, but the many other newspapers that began putting more and more resources into the story despite Nixon's cover-up -- hadn't bothered. Well, there wouldn't be any Watergate. Nixon would have served out his full two terms and retired as the elder statesman of post-war politics. The break-in at the Democrat headquarters on June 17, 1972, would be a piece of political trivia about one of the worst Democratic campaigns in history, and nothing more.
