Pat Buchanan: It Isn't Watergate Yet, But How Long Can This Sustain?

• by Alex Pfeiffer

Buchanan was a central figure in the Richard Nixon administration and just released "Nixon's White House Wars: The Battles That Made And Broke a President and Divided America Forever." He spoke to The Daily Caller Wednesday about the Trump presidency and other topics.

You wrote on Monday that the firing of Comey is nothing like Watergate. Do you still think these comparisons are overblown in light of Tuesday's New York Times report that Trump asked Comey to stop investigating Michael Flynn?

I do. We haven't got a single crime yet or a single indictment yet. By the time of the Saturday Night Massacre — in the middle of the Watergate scandal which lasted 18 months — you had people convicted and imprisoned, you had others who were on trial or facing indictment, you had others who had lawyered up and whose names had been dropped, you had congressional hearings, you had universal cries in the House for impeachment, and the White House was clearly deep in a crisis.

This level of drama is the only thing keeping the people from taking over Government, again. The drama takes the focus of the 6th, 7th, 9th, and 10th Amendments. If people used the jury in man-to-man common law courts, they could remove any and every obstacle that government throws in their path, and all the harm Government does, including the IRS tax.
