29,697. I made my mistakes but in all my years of public life, I have never profited, never profited from public service. I’ve earned every cent.

(United States & Nixon & Watergate) Gerald Ford
33,556. In the course of hundreds of interviews in the US, Europe and the Middle East I’ve been told repeatedly that individuals associated with the Reagan campaign of 1980 met secretly with Iranian officials to delay the release of the American hostages until after the presidential election. For this favor, Iran was rewarded with a substantial supply of arms from Israel. (Iran & Reagan & United States) Gary Sick, Congressional evidence 5th February 1992, author The October Surprise

All this: the contempt for Congress, the defiance of law, the huge mark-ups and profits, the secret bank accounts, the shady characters, the shake-down of foreign governments, the complicity and death and destruction, they did all this in the dark, because it would never stand the light of day. Secrecy is the freedom zealots dream of. (Government: Secret & United States of America) ibid.
36,693. But the Secret Government had also waged war on the American people. The Hearings examined a long train of covert actions at home, from the bugging of Martin Luther King by the FBI and of Kennedy and Johnson to gross violations of the law and of civil liberties in the 1970s. (Government: Secret & United States of America) ibid.
36,694. How does it happen that to be anti-communist we have become anti-democratic, as if we have to subvert our society to save it? This is partly the answer: the powers claimed by presidents in national security have become the controlling wheel of government driving everything else. (Government: Secret & United States of America) ibid.
33,571. America will never make concessions to terrorists. (Iran & Reagan & Lies & United States & Terrorism) Ronald Reagan
