On November 2nd, 1968, The South Vietnamese Government pulled out of the proposed talks in Paris to try to find an end to the Vietnam war.
It is alleged that R Nixon, through an intermediary, was the reason this happened, urging the South Vietnamese president to stay away from the talks, promising Saigon that if elected, he would drive a harder bargain with Hanoi.
It is a fact that this “manipulation” was secretly bugged by the CIA in Saigon(in the president’s office) as well as the FBI who had the Vietnam embassy also bugged!
L Johnson also knew of this but chose NOT to reveal the truth due the way the information was obtained. He knew Nixon was lying.
I understand that speaking to a foreign power whilst at war with that country is treason.
Why was Nixon never trialled for treason? Or LBJ as a matter of fact?
