Wulff has come under increasing pressure to resign following reports that he personally intervened in attempts to prevent journalists from writing about aspects of his personal life, including a recent call to Editor-in-Chief Kai Diekmann of Bild Zeitung, in which he threatened Diekmann with legal action should the paper publish a story about Wulff's personal finance conduct while Wulff was prime minister of Lower Saxony. These accusations come on the heels of revelations of cozy relationships between Wulff and businessmen in Lower Saxony that included free holidays and low interest loans.
