Nixon and Trump are similar in 1 way. So arrogant that they think they can get away with anything.

...Circumstances and events are totally different, but the arrogance is the same. Both lied their heads off and were sure they could get away with those lies. That is the "arrogance" of their personalities. Nixon had no problem covering up his crimes, and neither does Trump. Nixon never thought there would be major repercussions to his actions, and Trump is the same. Both did not and do not care about those that fall down around them. (that is get convicted for crimes they did to protect their boss) It is that essence of being a bully and getting away with it that turned me off on Nixon. I gave him a chance in my mind when he was elected, and he turned out "evil." Same with Trump. One more, Nixon lied about something very important. He claimed to have a "secret plan" to get out of Vietnam War. He had none. Trump lies about many events that are also very important. And covers them up too.

1. Trump might get away with it!

During Watergate, there was a different brand of Republicans in Congress...they believed in country over party. The current group of mainly white men, with a few white women...many of whom are likely more racist then any Grand Dragon of the KKK...are all about party, power, and dominance...and they've already looked the other way with Trump's other transgressions...add to that a federal court system now filled with Trump cronies...many of which aren't qualified to be working in a sewage treatment plant, much less as federal judges...and you will see how Trump will get away with even this!

And let's not forget the "americans" who support him, no matter what he does...will continue to support him!!!
