I almost forgot. Vice President Spiro Agnew resigned in 1973, so Ford was confirmed as Vice President. Nixon resigned in 1974, so Ford became President. Ford became President without having received a single vote, so the Writ of Habeas Corpus on which your whole case is based upon would be denied based on the precedent having been established in 1974. Ford served until 1977, left office, and the country continued to function perfectly.
