Nixon was able to stay out of jail. Don't think this one is wise enough.
And he also did the right thing and resigned. Wish this guy would. Plus he originally wanted us to have some sort of NHS. Then he saw $$$$. Another big difference is that when Nixon was elected, we didn't know he was a crook. Most americans knew trump was.
Nixon never committed this level of crime. To bring criminal charges would have been useless as his crime was Obstruction of Justice. Now Trumppy baby, has obstruction as an appetizer, He also has conspiracy against the US (as does Manaford) money laundering while using his charitable fund as a wash facility.
Then we get into the acts of lying, bribery, and treason.
And if Pence, if still around., pardons Trump, then the state of New York takes over with full State charges. If this ass hole gets away , we as a nation failed ourself
There's a certain amount of animal cunning and willingness to inflict pain and give bribes that might help this asshole out, but there is also the high level of narcissistic hubris that Nixon never had which is what will trip up our current jackass. He really thinks he can talk and lie his way out of anything, not realizing that he's a moron and everybody else is smarter than he is.
