Zombie Frank Wills did it, because idiots like Rand Paul trying to doxx the whistleblower will believe anything to delay impeachment. We’re way past looking at what has now been corroborated by fact-witnesses, but the GOP insists on trying to punish patriotism.

According to Wills' obituary in The New York Times, the “most eloquent description of his role” in American history came on July 29, 1974; Rep. James Mann (D-South Carolina), while casting his vote to impeach Nixon on the House Judiciary Committee, said, “If there is no accountability, another president will feel free to do as he chooses. But the next time there may be no watchman in the night.”
Frank Wills (February 4, 1948 – September 27, 2000) was an American security guard best known for his role in foiling the June 17, 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee inside the Watergate complex in Washington, D.C. Then 24, Wills called the police after discovering that locks at the complex had been tampered with. Five men were arrested inside the Democratic headquarters, which they had planned to bug. The arrests triggered the Watergate scandal and eventually the resignation of President Richard M. Nixon in 1974.
