Worse than Watergate
By John Leonard

For most of my lifetime, “Watergate” has been used as the measuring stick for political corruption. What exactly was the Watergate scandal?

On June 17, 1972, five men were arrested for burglarizing the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate office complex in Washington, D. C. It was never alleged that President Richard M. Nixon knew about the burglary prior to the attempt, but that he tried to use the power of the presidency to obstruct justice in order to protect members of his administration and his reelection committee from facing criminal charges. Ultimately, Nixon was forced to resign in order to avoid congressional impeachment and a trial in the Senate.

The great irony is that Nixon was going to crush McGovern in the general election without any illegal help. Nothing that could have been stolen from the Democrats could have helped the Republican Party win any bigger in 1972 -- Nixon claimed 520 electoral votes and carried 49 states. The break-in was stupid and unnecessary.

Thousands of times worse than Watergate!

Watergate was, at base, a group of fools trying to obtain documents that would prove the DNC was running a call girl operation for fat cats out of it's Washington headquarters.  The current mess involves the politicization of the federal government for political purposes.

A willing FBI was used by Obastard to attempt to assure a Clinton win and failing that, a crippled President Trump.  Definitely worse than Watergate.
I will NOT comply.

Infinitely worse! The only upside is the media has been exposed as an agent of the democommies.

Lots being exposed but few are paying any attention it seems.

Surely it would be better if the public were interested enough to pay attention to rat perfidy & lawbreaking but I'll settle for some convictions.

If we get those convictions we'll start to see some public opinion swinging our way.
