Deep Down Americans Already Know That The President Is A Crook
“I made my mistakes, but in all of my years of public life, I have never profited, never profited from public service — I earned every cent,” he said. “And in all of my years of public life, I have never obstructed justice. And I think, too, that I could say that in my years of public life, that I welcome this kind of examination, because people have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well, I am not a crook. I have earned everything I have got.”
These were the words of President Richard M. Nixon at a news conference before the Associated Press managing editors in Orlando, Fla. on November 17, 1973 where he defended himself against a number of allegations. Most of the questions related to the Watergate break-in, which had become even more of a scandal a month earlier with the “Saturday Night Massacre.” Other questions focused on reports that he had cheated on his tax returns.
The President Is A Crook
It has been revealed by FBI Director Comey that the FBI has been conducting an ongoing investigation into coordination between Russia and the Trump campaign. Also, there was no evidence at all that President Trump was wiretapped by President Obama. Donald Trump has claimed that President Obama wiretapped him and several of his aides and associates have had contact with foreign governments, including Russia, during the campaign even though they claimed they did not.
What we know is that it was in both the interest of the Russians and the Trump campaign to hack the Clinton campaign. As of the writing of this piece, Trump is live tweeting these hearings. That is not the act of an executive who has done everything above board with nothing to hide. These are the acts of someone who has made mistakes in public life. These are the acts of someone who has profited from public service with the help of a foreign government. This is the act of someone who has obstructed justice, and who does not want any kind of examination because the people already know the President is a crook.
