A&E: Investigative Reports: Watergate: Reasons Behind The Burglary: Enemies List
The only problem with the Watergate investigations, is that they didn't catch onto the Nixon White House. And their abuses of power earlier and what they were trying to do, which was essentially centralize all of the power. Into the White House and use the reason of war powers, that America was at war and under these conditions. The Executive has more power then they normally wouldn't have, including to not only investigate Americans they see. As enemies of the state but be able to take them on and go out of their way to discredit them, which is what the enemies list was about. Had Congress not only Democrats but Republicans weren't asleep at the wheel, they could've stopped President Nixon's. Abuses of power earlier then they did in 1974.
