On November 2, 1968, the Government of South Vietnam pulled out of the proposed talks in Paris to try to find an end to the Vietnam War.
It is alleged that Richard 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 by the FBI who had the U.S. Embassy in Vietnam also bugged!
Lyndon 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?
