    Default Didn't Watergate feel like this? 50 + only

    This is for anyone who Lived thru Watergate as a voting age adult.

    All others please refrain.

    Trump seems to think he can pull this off, Just like Millhouse.

    The dems won't be asking for his resignation...Ryan and McConnell will.

    Damn.. can't believe Trump thinks he can just talk and walk.

    This ain't cheesy NY real estate deals.
    The taxman is a comin'.

    I've seen what you post, and I know what I post. I'll certainly takes my chances. Fortunately for you, seems like all posts get flushed here every so often to minimize Republican embarrassment.

Until then there wasn't anything pointing to the White House. If it wasn't for that and then a month later John Dean getting a conscience it would have stretched out a LOT longer and Nixon probably would have finished his second term. Watergate was a lot less tidy and clear cut then you're pretending it was.
    Watergate started with a crime. But after 16 months of investigation they haven't even found a crime other than crimes that had no connection to the campaign and lying to the FBI about things that were not illegal. They are still fishing trying despirately to find a crime, but so far, it is a great big nothing. It is NOT the same no matter how much you would like it to be.

    No, it's not the same. Watergate will look like a late library book when this is all over.

    First of all, posts do not get purged here to save anybody embarrassment. Why on Earth would you think that?

    Secondly, I am not a Republican and never have been, and I have no more state in the Trump Administration than you and the rest of America does. But most importantly, my posts here (with the exception of a few distractions such as this one) are in response to the OP. The OP question is, "Didn't Watergate feel like this?" and based on my first hand experience of how it felt during Watergate (I was in my twenties) I can say with complete confidence that NO it does NOT feel the same now as it did during Watergate. Not even remotely.

    But that is not the point here. The point is, there is no similarity between what is going on today with what went on during Watergate, and so far, it doesn't look like it ever will. It is beginning to look like at best, they will hang a couple of underlings for lying and get Manafort for defrauding the US exclusive of any connections he had to the Trump campaign. It only seems to "feel" (the OP title word) the same to those too young to remember what Watergate "felt" like.
    Keep thinking that. And my use of "big fish" had nothing to do with your interpretation. Believe it or don't.
