Why Felt Wanted To Take Down the President

Ron Briley on a relatively unexplored aspect of Watergate: Government officials at the FBI and Pentagon working to undermine an elected President:
...[W. Mark] Felt’s own actions as the number two man at the FBI during the 1970s raise some questions regarding the agent’s motivations. Was Felt primarily concerned about issues of democracy and civil liberties or was he more afraid that the White House might intrude upon the national security prerogatives of the FBI?
