After so many “-gates”, here is an event that really is similar to Watergate insofar as there is a question as to which public officials and public representatives knew beforehand that a building (the Capitol) was to be broken into, or know afterwards how it came to be broken into. (And only a small number of people entered it too…what was it, less than 100? OK, admittedly they outnumbered the “plumbers”.)
The parallel doesn’t stop there because Watergate was about “re-electing the president” too, and the “positive thinking” guy Norman Vincent Peale was close to both the Nixons and the Trumps. This does give off a very Nixonian pong.
Trump’s statement that it was he who ordered the National Guard to come and protect the hated legislative building where the evil declaration that he had lost the election was about to delivered seems to be a complete and utter LIE. It was Mike Pence who called them in, possibly at the request of military and security officials who didn’t care to talk to the crazed man-baby Trump who is supposedly (don’t laugh) the “commander in chief”. What exactly Trump was doing during that time is a question that hopefully an inquiry will look into. Let’s hope no tapes go missing as they did with Nixon. Note that Steven Sund, head of the Capitol Police, has announced his resignation. Mr Sund needs to watch how he goes. I hope he stays in good enough health to be able to give evidence.
