Remember the Nixon years, particularly his second term, and the unrelenting drumbeat of crticism from the liberal media. He (Nixon) was desparged unmercifully for even the slightest hint that he might unleash the IRS on his perceived enemies.
Clinton, on the other hand, was given a complete pass ... even though it was abundantly clear he was using the IRS to harass anyone crtical of him and his administration.

And, in fact, one of the articles of impeachment drafted against Nixon was for abuse of the IRS.

Clinton, on the other hand, was given a complete pass ... even though it was abundantly clear he was using the IRS to harass anyone crtical of him and his administration.

So clear, in fact, that the same democRAT who wrote the IRS abuse article of impeachment against Nixon was quoted, after our CORRUPT Senate acquitted Clinton, as saying Clinton's abuse of the IRS and FBI is MUCH WORSE than anything Nixon did and that he should be impeached AGAIN because of it.

This is still brought up by the leftists. Do you know of anyone who Nixon actually had audited for political purposes? I think that Nixon did more talking than actually doing corrupt things.
