No, ‘Emailgate’ Is Not Worse Than Watergate... Nixon's Drug War Is!

No, ‘Emailgate’ Is Not Worse Than Watergate
By JOHN W. DEANOCT. 31, 2016

These comparisons are nonsense. Only someone who knows nothing about the law, and the darkest moment of our recent political history, would see a parallel between Nixon’s crimes and Mrs. Clinton’s mistakes.

It ended more than two years later, with Nixon’s resignation on Aug. 9, 1974, followed by the criminal trial of his former attorney general, John Mitchell; his former White House chief of staff, H. R. Haldeman; and his top domestic adviser, John D. Ehrlichman, who were found guilty of perjury and obstruction of justice on Jan. 1, 1975. Along the way, some four dozen Nixon aides and associates were convicted of or pleaded guilty to criminal misconduct, including me.

Taken together, these investigations revealed astounding abuses of presidential power by Nixon, which included other illegal break-ins and burglaries; illegal electronic surveillance; misuses of agencies of government like the I.R.S., C.I.A. and F.B.I.; the practice of making political opponents into enemies and using the instruments of government to attack them; and then employing perjury and obstruction of justice to cover it all up.

So then why does Nixon's Drug War Prohibitionists continue to abuse power, which includes other legal break-ins and burglaries; illegal electronic surveillance; misuses of agencies of government like the D.E.A., N.I.D.A., I.R.S., C.I.A. and F.B.I.; The practice of making political opponents into enemies and using the instruments of government to attack them; and then employing perjury and obstruction of justice to cover it all up.

574,641 still arrested last year and made criminals while knowing Nixon lied. All based on nothing but a madman's delusions of protection from his enemies in his head.
