All The President’s Men

I’m just about finished reading ‘All The President’s Men’ — the comparisons between 1972-’73 and today are numerous. Watergate was a domestic problem, while Russiagate is emblematic of both foreign and domestic issues. Senators Ted Kennedy and Sam Ervin initiated hearings on Watergate. Both the FBI and Justice Dept. contributed to the break-in investigation but it was diligence on WaPo reporters Woodward & Bernstein’s part as well as other reporters, the Pentagon Papers, Grand Jury findings and leaks which led to the Nixon Administration’s downfall.
