  • Why Watergate is not the Right Analogy for the Trump Constitutional Crisis
    • Sadly, reluctantly, I have to agree. You want an illustration of that kind of institutional failure? How'd Iran-Contra work out?
      How about Nixon's appreciably worse crime of sabotaging the Hanoi peace talks, hard evidence for which has only surfaced within the last decade? How about the build-up to the Iraq war? How about the, at best, legally dubious detritus in it's wake, i.e. Valarie Plane, Abu Ghraib, Blackwater, "black sites," just to name a few??

      I won't include the sad pantomime that was Bill Clinton's impeachment. I don't see how his "high crimes" clear the lowest bar set by anything above.
