Watergate whistleblower, Deep Throat, was the final nail in the coffin for Nixon. MARTHA MITCHELL hammered in the FIRST, only to be gaslit, discredited & publicly shamed by Nixon & his aides.

Mitchell was ridiculed for calls to Washington press, her accusations of corruption in the Nixon Administration, & her charges that she was a “political prisoner” held captive in a hotel & drugged. Nixon admin encouraged questions of her sanity. In the end, she was proven correct

Regarding the Presidential Alert...
🛑It's NOT AN 'ACTUAL EMERGENCY'. 🛑 It's not NEW.
Anti-Obama folks made the SAME mistake in 2013.
Allowing a POTUS to send unblockable nationwide alerts was part of the WARN Act of 2006 under BUSH. Please read the history in this THREAD:
