The Watergate burglary brought down President Nixon even though it did not directly involve him. It was a dirty tricks operation similar to what was exposed by the Project Veritas videos of a similar and recent Democrat dirty tricks operation. What is significant and extremely troubling is that the bugging of the Trump Tower (and who knows what else) used the might of the government justice, intelligence and security agencies to spy on the Trump presidential campaign.
Underpinning this horrendous activity was concern that Trump might actually win the Presidency – which he did. It now appears that in hopes of preventing election loss, Obama’s political operatives concocted a scheme to undermine Trump.
This scheme, now exposed by Trump himself, smacks of the way third world dictators spy on their opponents and use the information discovered to discredit, imprison and assassinate them. (Even the Russian election influence story appears to be part of this scheme, in that it was a ploy designed to give legitimacy to any potential blunders of the bugging and spying by the Obama administration.)
Trump has referred to this Obama administration activity in the following way:
“Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my “wires tapped” in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!”
“How low has President Obama gone to tap my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!”
No matter what excuse Obama will create and the press will dutifully support and report, Trump is correct to condemn it. And, this is far worse than what happened with Nixon in the Watergate scandal. This political scheme used the apparatus of the government.
With this in mind, Jeff Sessions, Head of the Department of Justice, has no option but to pursue a complete investigation of the facts and adjudicate accordingly. This, of course, could involve the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation as well as key players in the Obama White House.
There is realistically very little question that this activity undermined the rule of law and the Constitution of the United States of America. To repeat, this is worse than Watergate and even a comparison with Watergate is quite inadequate to expose the danger to the American Republic form of government and individual liberty.
