Watergate didn’t cost Nixon the Presidency because he broke into the democratic campaign offices. What did cost him was that he helped cover it up. Essentially, Nixon may not have known about the break-in originally, but he didn’t inform the public as soon as he did know.
Could what we are experiencing today regarding Upper Big Branch turn out to be similar? The politicians (Congress and maybe even the White House) may not have been aware (as Senator Manchin says he was not) that the UBB explosion was clearly fueled by “natural gas” as opposed to gas coming from the coal seam. It’s possible this could be true even though we were telling everyone that would listen that it was natural gas once the gas sample analyses were available to us nearly four years ago. Additionally the Mine Safety and Health Administration has been very unfair to the Congress, the President, and many others because they have never publicly stated that the gas was not coal gas.
