Hillary Rodham Nixon Even He Didn't Destroy The Tapes
Investor's Business Daily ^ | March 31, 2015 | IBD EDITORIALS

Scandal: RNC Chairman Reince Priebus reminds us of the similarity between the 18-1/2-minute gap that doomed a presidency and an email server wiped clean by a lawyer who served on a Watergate committee staff.

Hillary Clinton should know better, know that the cover-up is often worse than any crime, for she once worked as a member of the impeachment inquiry staff for the House Judiciary Committee investigating the "third-rate burglary" at the Watergate Hotel that doomed Richard Nixon's presidency.

The end came when tapes of presidential conversations were found and became public knowledge with one tape containing that famous 18-1/2-minute gap of erased silence that spoke volumes about the cover-up of the break-in at DNC headquarters.

As RNC Chair Reince Preibus notes, as Richard Nixon's claim that "I am not a crook" unraveled, it was due to the fact that he did not destroy those tapes when he could have. Maybe it was vanity, stubbornness or just garden variety stupidity and arrogance, but he didn't burn them or wipe them clean, even if it might have saved his presidency.

That's kind of the point isn't it? She learned from his mistakes. Don't just erase 18 minutes, burn the entire tape system—or server, in her case.

Or maybe... Nixon was actually an honorable man, whose tragic flaw was paranoia.

On the other hand - Hillary Clinton. Arrogance, entitlement and a garden variety lack of morals. Like one of her idols - Saul Alinsky.

Making it even worse is that Hillary Rodham was on the impeachment committee for President Nixon. The fall of Nixon lead to the fall of Indochina and the election of Carter — and what a disaster that presidency was.

Kennedy stole the election from him and then, it was stolen again with Hillary, Sam Ervin; etal.

As a matter of clarification, Watergate was a John Dean operation to recover the Black Book of hookers that the DNC kept for entertaining their VIP guests.

One of the names in the book was Dean’s future wife.

I met George Gordon Battle Liddy a few years after he got out of prison. He was a very polished speaker, and he defended Nixon. If President Nixon had just thrown Liddy and Hunt under the bus, he wouldn’t had to resign. Nixon’s mistake was his loyalty to his idiot friends. I also met a sailor who served under Nixon in the Navy. He had several pictures of him with Nixon. The sailor praised Nixon and said he was a great leader who cared for his men.

President Nixon, was a great man who loved this country. Hillary dosent deserve to be a pimple on President Nixon dead @ss.

Hadn’t heard that. Didn’t think Dean was the prime mover.

This is EXACTLY and ALL “Watergate” was really about.

Hillary’s crimes, on the other hand... caused the death of Americans. And I’m sure the stuff on this server would reveal ENDLESS corruption and criminal activity.

But alas, she’s a democrat and our Republicans are completely USELESS to uphold broken law by said democrats.

But, is there not something monstrously Shakespearean about the setup - young lawyer works to overthrow the monarch by revealing duplicity; 40 years later similar duplicity undoes her own ambitions?
