After members of Richard Nixon’s re-election committee were caught breaking into the DNC headquarters at the Watergate Hotel, Nixon eventually resigned from office after it was revealed that he tried to coverup the entire affair. Evidence is being uncovered to indicate that the Obama administration’s illegal spying was far worse than anything Nixon and his staff did.
In 1972, some employees of President Nixon’s re-election committee were caught when they broke into the Democratic National Committee headquarters to plant a bug. This led to Nixon’s resignation and probably would have led to his felony prosecution had he not been pardoned by his successor, Gerald Ford.
But if a single bugging of the political opposition is enough to bring down a presidency — and maybe lead to an unprecedented criminal prosecution of a former president — then what are we to make of the recently unveiled Obama administration program of massively spying on political opponents in violation of clearly established law?
Because that’s what was unveiled last week.
When the FBI wants to wiretap a domestic suspect, it goes to court for a warrant. But when listening in on foreigners, the National Security Agency hoovers up a vast amount of stuff in bulk:…
If anyone actually kept track of all of the crimes committed by Barack Obama during his 8 years in the White House, he would have the longest rap sheet of any criminal in US history. He was by far THE crookedest and corrupt leader this nation ever had. Instead of deserving an annual pension, he deserves an 8×8 cell in a federal prison, one where the lock is welded shut and never opened until the day they remove his sorry body from the cell.
