Echoes Of Watergate

Friday, June 9th, 2017

My Dear America:

It is with the greatest regret that I write to you today.  

It is one day after the Testimony of fired FBI Director, James Comey before the Senate Committee investigating the involvement of Russia in the 2016 Election of Donald Trump as your President.  I found the Testimony of James Comey to be fascinating.  I also found the testimony to be reminiscent of the Testimony back in the 1970's of John Dean, Richard Nixon's White House Counsel until he was fired by Nixon.  Nixon had obviously planned to make Dean the scapegoat for the Watergate Scandal as the Watergate bubble burst and set in motion a Senate Inquiry and Special Prosecutors.

Watergate was a Travesty and I would like to remind any readers of this post that I wrote what I consider to be a well researched book on Watergate that is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble Websites.  My book is titled "Letters To A Lost Nation: A Watergate Chronicle."  It includes "A Brief History of Watergate," as well as a listing of a Cast of Watergate Characters, as well as a number of letters commenting on the Watergate Committee Hearings and other Watergate Happenings.  

What we are witnessing today is almost a mirror image of the Watergate Scandal, complete with Special Prosecutors and firings of high Administration officials.  Unfortunately for US the present day Scandal is far worse than Watergate.  Watergate was certainly a series of unfortunate political events topped off by the threat of imminent Impeachment Hearings and ultimately the resignation of President Richard Nixon.  There were dastardly deeds committed in the name of the Nixon White House.  That is true.  But Watergate had no hint of collusion with the Russians.  Watergate was strictly an All American Fiasco.

President Trump's less than Six Months in office has been a disaster for clear thinking Americans. Clearly a monumental mistake has been made in America And as we all watch Trump destroying America piece by piece it is time for the American Public to wake up as they did in Watergate and let their legislators know that it is time for impeachment.  

For God's Sake Donald Trump fired James Comey and within days was bragging to the Russians about how he got rid of Comey, the "Nut Job".  He also told the Russians in the Oval Office that he had taken care of the Russian investigation. This Treasonous conversation with the Russians alone should prove that Trump is guilty of impeachable offenses. 

Sincerely Yours
