History Repeats Itself

February 15th, 2017

The illegitimate president’s complaints about leaks in the White House immediately brought me back to 45 years ago when Nixon made the same complaint. Nixon’s response was to create the “plumbers” covert ops team to fix the leaks. The plumbers were led by by E. Howard Hunt and G. Gordon Liddy who engaged in various criminal activities including breaking into the office of Daniel Ellsberg’s psychiatrist’s office (looking for dirt to punish Ellsberg for leaking the Pentagon Papers). Both Liddy and Hunt were sent to prison for their participation in the break-in of the DNC office in the Watergate complex in 1972.

It is ironic that the illegitimate president took the office using some of the same dirty tricks in the Nixon playbook: the president’s agents broke into DNC records and using the information to disrupt the election, and a coordinated disinformation campaign is conducted against enemies. Now we are seeing that the connection to the Russian agents runs deeper than was originally reported with on-going investigations of the communication between aides of the illegitimate president and Russian government officials. There is likely much more to the story that we do not know.

To repeat the advice of “Deep Throat” (later identified as FBI agent Mark Felt) who leaked information to Washington Post reporters Woodward and Bernstein, we will get the answers to our questions when we “follow the money.” No better place to start than with the tax returns of the illegitimate president.
