The saturday night massacre
Nixon's executive dismissal of Archibald Cox special prosecutor and the resignation of Attorney General Elliot Richardson and deputy attorney general William Ruckleshous who bought refused to do the presidents bidding came to an end on 10/20/1973
Robert bork was advanced to the Attorney generals position and he did the actual dismissal of special prosecutor Cox
Federal district judge Gerhard Gisell ruled that the dismissal of Cox was illegal without due cause.
That sirs is why Robert bork never sat on the US supreme Court. So when you talk about some candate being borked, remember that Robert Bork deserved to be Borked. He did the bidding for a very dispicable president Nixon. BTW Nixon is not beloved like William jefferson Clinton. That must really stick in your craw!
