American key figures who were involved in the Watergate news developments provide a stinging critique of the current GOP.
I was a curious young student during The Watergate investigation and hearings. This major political news story involving a disgraced Republican President named Richard Tricky Dick Nixon in 1974 was a thirty-year prelude to the January GOP six insurrection. The takeaway is to never again give another criminal the keys to the Whitehouse.
The Watergate hearings led to Nixon's resignation. The scandal stemmed from the Nixon administration's continual attempts to cover up its involvement in the June 17, 1972, break-in of the Democratic National Committee headquarters in Washington, D.C. Personality Disorder affects approximately two percent of the population and it certainly applies to these two former guys.
The January six Commission hearings will expose the corrupt world of GOP attacks lies and right-wing politics. Republicans desperately hope you’ll change the channel to Fox because they don't want American voters to learn the truth about who is responsible for these criminal acts.
The Republicans' obsession with secrecy, and its willingness to deceive the American people, emphasize the former president's emphasis on image over substance, mistrustful personality, imperial governing and flawed decisions, grifting, and his abuses of national security.
The main difference as I see it is that back then the GOP cared about truth justice and democracy and their leadership was responsive to the American people and not in debt to outside sources.
Watergate legends Woodward and Bernstein explain why Trump is worse than Nixon
The former Watergate special prosecutor Richard Ben-Veniste has said he believes that the subject of Donald Trump’s second impeachment trial is worse than Richard Nixon’s near-impeachment over the Watergate scandal.
Former White House counsel John Dean makes comparisons between Donald Trump's and Richard Nixon's presidencies.
The other shoe has yet to drop. When Attorney General Merrick Brian Garland, who served as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit from 1997 to 2021 stated that he'd follow the facts wherever they led, America must take him at his word. He continues to show us he really means it.
