I suspect there are some very nervous people in Washington today – who worry about exactly what those tapes would prove.
With President Trump acting increasingly like former President Nixon during the Watergate scandal coverup there is one similarity between the two scandals that is not receiving the media attention it deserves.
During the Watergate scandal Nixon had a taping system installed in the Oval Office – recording conversations he had there.
These tapes revealed wrongdoing with recorded proof beyond all reasonable doubt.
During the Russia scandal that plagues the Trump presidency there are also large numbers of recorded conversations that provide the equivalent of the Watergates tapes.
I call them ‘Trump tapes’ which were legally recorded by counter-intelligence and law enforcement authorities for legitimate security and law enforcement purposes.The eavesdropping that created these tapes was originally aimed against foreign individuals with interests that are are hostile to America – including Russian targets.
The tapes would include every mention by foreign intelligence targets of every individual associated with Trump with whom they spoke.
