Andrew Hall watched from within the courtroom as four of Richard Nixon’s top advisers were sentenced to prison for their roles in the Watergate coverup.
He had been hired as counsel by John D Ehrlichman – the former president’s senior adviser for domestic affairs – who was convicted of conspiracy – obstruction of justice and perjury.
Ehrlichman created ‘The Plumbers’ – a covert special investigations unit inside of the White House that began conducting illegal operations under his watch – leading to one of America’s most extraordinary political scandals.
Now Mr Hall says he’s watching history repeat itself – with Donald Trump and his associates awaiting a similar fate in the days and weeks ahead.
‘The coverup is always worse than the crime’ the attorney said in an interview with The Independent.
‘And this one is very shady.
We have a sitting president who will undoubtedly be impeached’.
