On Oct. 20, 1973, in the so-called Saturday Night Massacre, President Nixon abolished the office of special Watergate prosecutor Archibald Cox, accepted the resignation of Attorney General Elliot L. Richardson and fired Deputy Attorney General William B. Ruckelshaus.
Finally Solicitor General Robert Bork - who would later be nominated, unsuccessfully, to the Supreme Court - assumed the post of acting head of the Justice Department and carried out the President’s order.
Some are now trying to get "Robert Bork's America" back ...
Hasn't he been indicted yet?
Why don't they recycle him for prez?
The American people needed to know if their president was a crook. Deja vu.
He said he wasn't. What else do you want to know?
Oh, he had a dog named Checkers.
