Nixon weaponizing the IRS. Audits for political reasons. Political enemies list. Nixon hates the LA Times, directs IRS audits of the owners' tax returns looking for illegal immigrant employees, also used Immigration and Naturalization Service.

5. This Article 2 angle is important. Good segment by Maddow.

Striking that dRump is pulling this shit openly, while Nixon had to hide in the shadows to do it.

And dRump went in to the Presdency more openly crooked criminal corrupt connected, than the level of corruption that forced Nixon OUT of the White House.

Nixon's corruption started the tradition of prez candidates being forced to disclose their Income Tax. Funny how dRump ended that tradition. Wonder if that audit he was under is done, yet. We had Sec Clinton's taxes publicly revealed to the press, starting from her time as Arkansas First Lady all the way through '16.

I'd like to see the public demand a publicly disclosed IRS audit of shitler, from '16 - '18.

7. I agree

Trump was trash coming into the White House. Not trash because of what was said about him or written about him. Trash because of what he, himself, said and did for all to see. The people he has brought into government, like him, make no attempt to hide their corruption. There is no sense of decorum, the need to maintain the semblance, at least the semblance, of integrity, honesty, and honor. Pruitt, Carson, DeVos, Zinka, Price, that fool at FCC, Ajit Pai -- all of them, everyone of Trump's appointees is corrupt as the day is long and completely unabashed, unashamed of their corruption.

(OK, I'll give Niki Haley a partial pass on this, but only because she seems to operate under the old rules of keeping a clean public face. I'm definitely not a fan of hers, but she doesn't belong in the slop-pit with Trump and the other swine he's appointed.)

And 60 million voters had all the information they needed to make an easy, informed decision about the corrupt blonde chancre, but voted for him instead of Mrs. Clinton -- or at least, at the very least, instead of just staying the hell home on election day.

I think the future of the Republic is really in danger of becoming a footnote in the abbreviated history of a world Trump and company, including the corporate pigs who support him, are out to destroy.

8. You're right, R V71.

That clown should have been in jail in the '80's. And he was WWE reality tv trash his whole life.

his bet with Vince McMahon didn't go the other way, because then we would have seen Vince shave trump's hair off. Wouldn't that have been awesome ??

9. A look back into history here

I was thirteen years old when Nixon resigned. The next thing I knew was that Gerald Ford pardoned Nixon. Rachel has given me a look back at Nixon and a real good look at 45 who now needs to be criminally charged in some way.
