The audio of Trump with the Georgia secretary of state. Wow. It’s like telling the Nixon tapes to “hold my beer.”

Rejecting a remote debate, Eric Trump said on @ThisWeekABC  that debating your opponent, face to face, is how we've handled presidential debates for the last 200 years. FWIW The first presidential debate was in 1960. The third Nixon Kennedy debate, also 1960, was done remotely.

On @CNN , Bob Woodward drops new audiotape in which Trump gives himself an A grade for his handling of the pandemic. At time (July), 142,000 had died. Woodward calls it “saddest” taped statement by a president, including Nixon.

Historians will remember Woodward’s tapes as being as significant as the Nixon tapes. We’ve all been numbed by one political shock after another. But history’s perspective will be withering, and Trump will likely shoulder the blame for at least 100,000 American deaths.

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.

After Watergate, Congress passed reforms to safeguard the rule of law and root out corruption. We are working on new reforms now, because the threat Trump and his enablers pose to our democracy is more grave than anything Nixon did:

The difference between now and the Watergate era isn't the severity of misconduct— Trump's abuse of power poses a greater threat to our national security than anything Nixon did. The difference today is the apparent willingness of many Republicans to put party over country.

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

America has had its share of crooks (Warren G. Harding, Richard Nixon), bigots (Andrew Jackson, James Buchanan), and incompetents (Andrew Johnson, George W. Bush). But never before Donald Trump have we had a president who combined all these nefarious qualities.

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:
