I'm watching an old CBS news special on Watergate

and my take away from what I've watched so far is that Trump & his admin watched it too and that's their playbook.

The only real difference so far is the break-in/hacking angle (which is still a type of break-in) and instead of one deep throat, we have a plethora.

2. One thing that is also similar is the Nixon supporters and the Trumpies

Nixon supporters claimed back then that Nixon was being railroaded by the Democrats and the Media and that there was no evidence just like the Trumpies are claiming now.

4. I don't know how many people knew it but Muskie

was quite the drinker in his days. My Dad was in a position to meet and get to know a lot of the movers and shakers in Maine politics and he told me that Muskie has quite a reputation for his heavy drinking.

5. If it's on TV the Donald will watch it but not if it is in book form.

I wonder if they also saw that Nixon left office with a 35% approval rating. That fact will probably encourage them to continue along the path they're on. His base is a solid 35% no matter what he does. He could be a traitor and they wouldn't care. They love his bully/thug personality and the issues don't matter to them and never will.
