How many people were on President Richard Nixon’s enemies list?

Twenty people on President Richard Nixon’s enemies list were named in the 1971 memo released to the Senate Watergate Committee in 1973.

There were 200 additional enemies on a separate list.

The memo proposed the use of “federal machinery,” including IRS audits and litigation, to “screw our political enemies.”

The top 20 enemies included Ed Guthman, national editor of the Los Angeles Times; Ronald Dellums, California congressman; Daniel Schorr, CBS reporter; and Paul Newman, actor involved in “radic-lib causes.”
