Did the DNC fund this article to make such a laughable diversion from their own forms of treachery (Russia collusion hoax by Hillary campaign, Obama admin’s spying, Biden’s weaponisation of government against parents at school boards) and demonise all the muh RePublicans to justify political witchhunts against them?
‘PartyGate’, and potentially ‘BeerGate’, are socially awkward but political trivia.
The alleged Hillary Clinton ‘RussianCollusionGate’, the alleged Hunter Biden LaptopGate, the dogged persistence of InsurrectionGate committee, the mental health of the current American President, and even the day to day performance of the governing SNP in Scotland, are far more serious. But ‘friends’ are resisting the recognition of the seriousness of the events.
We’re lucky that Watergate made it through the ‘friends’.
Ha! I thought the same thing. Iloved the reference to Trump’s high crimes too. The ones that were proven never to have actually happened.
I’d settle for some accountability among the mainstream corporate media first.
“If the movie were remade now, I think the question would be even more cynical: sure, they’ll print it, but how do you know it will make any difference? How do you know enough people will care?“
No, nobody would believe it because one sided hit pieces like this have replaced journalism.
“The people who started a harassment campaign against women in the games industry in 2014”
Stop peddling this myth. It’s pathetic.
“ and Donald Trump can survive two impeachments thanks to partisan loyalty”
I made it this far – author is living in the upside down.
Remember when Monica-gate was “a vast right-wing conspiracy”?
I scanned the article but didn’t see it in the list.
Gaslighting is the appropriate term. The level of delusion is frightening.
Unlike Lynskey, I was an adult during all that crap and like most Americans, thought the whole thing was political from the beginning. Nixon had no knowledge of the planned break-in but was slammed because he later learned of it and didn’t admit it. He made the mistake of having his conversations recorded then failed to destroy the tape as government usually does with information it doesn’t want the public to know about. The reason it’s the alleged “crime of the century” or whatever is because it’s the only thing the Left has to crow about. I suspect his article is to divert attention from left-wing darling Hillary Clinton’s actions while head of the State Department and the recent revelations of the role she played in Russiagate, which is far, far worse than Watergate.
….and to draw attention away from Hillary’s own acid-washing and destruction of the contents of her private server while at State – which of course had nothing to do with any pay for play schemes of the Clinton Foundation.
It is difficult to imagine a worse mischaracterization of the two Trump impeachments than appears in this article. One might suppose the author is misinformed, but the reference is too blatantly partisan for that supposition. In fact, Nixon did participate in Watergate and its coverup. In fact, none of the ‘crimes or misdemeanors’ charged against Trump was proven, despite the expense of many millions of taxpayer dollars and no doubt billions of dollars in mainstream media propaganda. Today, the cases against those who conspired, acted and lied against Trump are ongoing. The author must be wearing blinders.
The author is a partisan hack.
The thing to remember about Richard Nixon is that Democrats absolutely hated him, going back to the 1940s when he beat a couple of left-wing Democrats, one for the House, and one for the Senate, by branding them as pinkos. How. Dare. He.
My liberal first boss, in Seattle in 1969, had a coffee mug featuring a Nixon $3 bill. Here in Yankland we have a saying “as fake as a $3 bill.” I notice on Google that you can now get Trump $3 bills, Clinton $3 bills, both Bill and Hillary. Bless their hearts.
Let’s get some honesty here: the CIA, NSA, MI5/6 etc etc routinely do every single day things ten times more unacceptable than what Nixon did during Watergate.
Dear me, Nixon tapped telephones! Or whatever. And then broke into opponents’ offices.
What do you think the Security Services get up to every day of every week of every year since the year dot? Breaking and entering, tailing and harassing, smearing and leaking, doing everything they can to be unaccountable, unelected, criminal mafias destroying every single honest politician on the planet.
No-one should be holding politicians to account for anything that they don’t lock up security service criminals for.
The security services don’t make us secure, they make themselves very, very rich. They are global drug dealers, insider traders on Wall Street and in the City, they blackmail, extort, threaten and murder, conspire to execute and organise wars for their own arms dealing get-rich-very-quick schemes.
The politicians are just the fall guys. The real criminals are those infinitely worse than Mark Sedwill, which is indeed saying a very great deal.
“Perhaps this failure to punish an attempt to overturn an election is a long term consequence of Watergate.”
Surely the author is referring to the 4 year attempt by the DNC to overturn the unexpected election of Donald Trump in 2016 through impeachment based on their spurious and paid for Steele dossier, with solid Democrat partisan support in Congressional hearings.
Buy no. He has already revealed his own partisan position by the his carefully selected examples.
