In 1958 Vice President Richard M. Nixon was on a trip to Hong Kong. There he met a beautiful Chinese cocktail waitress named Marianna Liu. When Nixon’s term was up in 1961, he returned to Hong Kong in 1964, 1965, and 1966 to see Marianna Liu. On one night, Richard Nixon and his good friend Bebe Rebozo visited Marianna at The Den, the cocktail lounge where she was hostess. Later that night, Marianna visited Nixon and Rebozo to their hotel suite to have a drink or two.

Nixon’s friendship with Marianna Liu was a bit of a special interest to investigators in Hong Kong. This is because Ms. Liu was suspected of being a Communist spy. The relationship became of greater interest when to these investigators when Nixon declared his candidacy for president in 1968. It was feared by them that when Nixon became president any recordings or photos of Nixon and Ms. Liu could be used as a way to blackmail the American President and people.

Marianna immigrated to the United States in 1969. She chose to live in Whittier, California, Richard Nixon’s hometown. After she became a citizen, she visited Richard Nixon twice at the White House. Their relationship ended soon after their second visit, because as a source states, Pat Nixon was “on to it.”

Did Richard Nixon have an affair, or were he and Marianna Liu just good friends. We will never know, because Nixon did not record his alleged affair on tapes.

Let the man rest in peace. His image has been dragged through the mud enough.

For that crook, there is no "enough".

If I started bashing Hitler, would you say, "Let Hitler rest in peace."?

What difference does it make at this point whether Nixon had an affair?

And I think it's ludicrous to compare Nixon to Hitler.  Whatever Nixon's shortcomings, he had a number of high-minded goals, and there can be no comparison of him to one of the most evil men in history.

I didn't mean to isult anyonme, i'm a history buff not a politician. I like Richard Nixon, but I just came up with a great title and wanted to post my knowledge.

As for me I don't think Tricky Dick had an affair.

All I'm saying is that it isn't a sufficient defense to say that, well the man is dead so don't bash him.  History has a right to judge failures as such.

As angus always says, there is no such thing as good and evil.

They are merely perceptions.

Well every person has some conception of what is good and what isn't and that conception can usually trace its roots back to something that is the same for everyone.

I'm an historian. I bring up history. I don't care if you think it matters that I put Nixon may have had an affair. I'm going to put down history.
