Richard Milhaus Nixon
As I heard it, after Navy service in War 2, Nixon answered an ad for a GOP candidate to run for Congressman in his heavily Democratic home district.
This would have been 1948. He won the seat. In 1950, he ran against the liberal Senator Helen Gohagen Douglas. He began his red baiting career by
accusing her of having Communist or “Fellow Travelers” (GOP slander) supporting her. He won that race. Joe McCarthy, Jr. 2 for 2.
As I heard it Nixon was placed in charge of collating the SS personnel files captured by US troops. While doing this he was approached by Allen
Dulles who offered Nixon the funding necessary for his run for Congress. In exchange he was to 'cleanse' the records of a number of Nazis that
Dulles wanted to bring into the US.
As I further understand it, Nixon took the fall for Watergate just as questions about his association to these 'former' Nazi imports was about to be
raised. Although Watergate was a scandal it was nothing in comparison to the involvement of OSS/CIA in the importation of major war criminals to the
US which was why Watergate was so conveniently leaked when it was. Watergate took all the column inches and the Nazi story was killed.
Some of those Nazis were expendable having served their purpose, like Karl Wolff and were subsequently deported and stripped of their citizenship when
their cases were brought to the attention of the courts but any scandal was kept to the bare minimum with Nixon's and Dulles' involvement kept out
of the limelight.
One would assume that Nixon continued to be rewarded for his service, he was at best an amoral character. His climb up the ladder to the Presidency
was no doubt funded by those who knew he was 'tricky' to the core and would therefore always be a useful to their aims. The more powerful he became
was all the better for them.
