Could Mike Pence Turn on Trump? Here’s How Gerald Ford Broke With Nixon.

From a Washington Post Retropolis column by Frederic J. Frommer headlined “Could Pence turn on Trump? Here’s how Ford finally broke with Nixon”:

A half-century ago, Vice President Gerald Ford also faced a tipping point in his relationship with Richard M. Nixon, and decided to break with the beleaguered president.
