This could be Boris’s ‘Nixon goes to China’ moment, writes Ashoka Mody

WATCH: "There was a greater sense you could trust institutions" during the Nixon and Clinton impeachments, Peggy Noonan says on #MTPDaily . Andrea Mitchell: "Even in the worst moments of the Bill Clinton impeachment ... he was very somber."

It should be clear that today, Nixon would not be impeached for the Watergate break-in and related cover-up. Instead, Republicans would rally around a frenetic counter-narrative regarding all the nefarious goings-on in the DNC he was legitimately trying to uncover.

"In the '70s for Nixon, in the '90s even for Clinton, there was a greater sense you could trust institutions... As a country we have lost faith in our institutions and in our leaders to be necessarily doing the right thing." - Peggy Noonan, columnist

"Political reality in his district dictated that he stand with Nixon; so did his own conservative instinct to support the institution of the presidency. But the evidence kept piling up," George Packer on the ulcer of Walter Flowers:

Here's why Trump's impeachment is not like Nixon's

How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

Shoutout to my colleague Adam Schiff. He's doing a masterful job conducting hearings & releasing transcripts, & will bring back witnesses to testify publicly. Trump can't intimidate Schiff or stop the facts. He should just take a cue from Nixon, pack up his tanning bed & leave.

✔️Nearly 50 House Republicans can attend every deposition and interview. ✔️Republicans have had equal time to ask questions. ✔️Today’s resolution uses the same rules as the Nixon and Clinton impeachments The process attacks have failed, because facts still matter.

President Trump’s efforts to cover up his betrayal of his oath of office almost make the things Nixon did look small.

Nixon'>Richard Nixon is finally going to prison. On Roger Stone’s back.

An emotional moment: Beto O’Rourke meets Nixon'>Sean Nixon, 20, a Walmart employee who was there at the time of the shooting and helped a child. O’Rourke asked if he was getting counseling, offered his personal cell number and said to call if he needs help.

Why are House Democrats cutting House Republicans out of the process of developing Articles of Impeachment and not following same procedures used in Nixon and Clinton impeachments???? Seems like a political motivation not a constitutional one!!!

Can’t believe they are bringing in John Dean, the disgraced Nixon White House Counsel who is a paid CNN contributor. No Collusion - No Obstruction! Democrats just want a do-over which they’ll never get!

Asbestos was one of the first carcinogens regulated under the Clean Air Act in 1973 (Nixon was president) and then was largely banned in 1989 (George HW Bush was president). No amount of asbestos is safe. Yet, the Trump administration is #MAGA  or making asbestos great again:

President Nixon asked the Department of Justice if he could pardon himself. They said no, as no one may be the judge in their own case. He resigned three days later. In case you want to follow the Nixon model, that would be Thursday.
