did you see the movie? if you didnt walk away from it feeling bad for the guy im not sure whats wrong with you - between the shit with his insane mother, his homosexuality, and other shit i guess i sort of cant spoil because it would ruin the movie i guess? they focus alot on how much hoover exaggerated everything he accomplished and really made him out as being paranoid, which he obviously was. also nixon calls him an old cocksucker
and he didnt do anything outright wrong but he did stay in power for 48 years simply because of how scared each incoming president was of what might happen if they fired him.
