11. The smoking gun tape of Nixon was him asking the CIA to stop the FBI investigation.

The CIA refused, but that did not save Nixon. That tape is what turned the Republicans against him and he was impeached for obstruction of justice.

Yet Trump similarly asked Sessions to stop the FBI/Special Counsel investigation. Sessions didn't do it. Then he fired Sessions. But today's Republicans see no obstruction since Trump did not get Mueller fired.
