45 years ago - The watershed moment in Watergate

45 years ago today was June 23, 1972. This was the day that President Richard Nixon's two top lieutenants, namely Bob Haldeman and John Ehrlichman, went to the CIA to beg them to stop the FBI's investigation of the Watergate break-in. This was the "smoking gun" event that, when disclosed in Nixon's tapes in August 1974, directly led to Nixon's resignation.

It took more than 2 years from this event, which was recorded on Nixon's tapes, until his resignation.

My point is simple: what the idiot that today some call President has likely done is far worse than anything Nixon did. There is no question about that. It will ALL COME OUT, but it won't happen immediately. It took more than 2 years with Nixon and it might take a long time to get there with Trump. But it WILL get there, no matter what.

In the meantime, let's hang together and stop the in-fighting. There is a much greater enemy out there than any of us, and we all know who he/they/it is/are.

This stuff takes time, and it takes time for the American people to understand it.

Peace.

of several types. Fighting them (and retaining U.S. integrity) will be very difficult.
