Daniel Ellsburg's psychiatrist papers was what the White House plumbers were after. No psychiatrist papers found during the Watergate break in but a Watergate security guard caught the plumbers and the rest is history.

edit: When Nixon resigned I was steaming in the middle of the Pacific thousands of miles from land with no enemy in sight. We went to Condition 3, normal wartime steaming.

If Watergate happened today?

You mean POTUS using current technology to spy on amd record people?

Just think if tricky dick had a secret government court to rubber stamp whatever he or his cronies wanted?

Just think if tricky dick had an entire alphabet agency that could spy on every man, woma and child in possession of something that connects to the internet, that was directly under the executive branch?


Man, our masters have come a long way.


But hey, take off your tinfoil hat, stop babbling about the deep state, eat your franken burger and drink your corn acid.

Yes Nixon would destroy the audio tapes like Hillary did and say " I don't recall" like Hillary did and he would stay in office because of it right?

Merkel's spokesman, Steffen Seibert, lamented a "grave breach of trust." One of Chancellor Merkel's closest allies, Defense Minister Thomas de Maiziere told broadcaster ARD there would be consequences.
"We can't simply turn the page," he warned.
Der Spiegel reported Thursday that Thomas Oppermann, who leads the parliamentary committee that scrutinizes Germany's intelligence services, complained that "the NSA's monitoring activities have gotten completely out of hand, and take place beyond all democratic controls."

Quote:

Obama met with leaders of Brazil and Mexico to talk with them about when the NSA spied on their communications. These leaders are not happy about this, and they want to know everything that the NSA found and did.

Well, can you blame them? It seems as if no one is immune from the prying eyes of the NSA, not even leaders of other countries. President Obama said he and his administration “will work to resolve tensions over allegations that the U.S. monitored their communications.” What a comforting thought!

Quote:

A newly released court order from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) found that the National Security Agency, under former President Obama, routinely violated American privacy protections while scouring through overseas intercepts and failed to disclose the extent of the problems until the final days before Donald Trump was elected president last fall. In describing the violations, the FISA court said the illegal searches conducted by the NSA under Obama were "widespread" and created a "very serious Fourth Amendment issue."
