Initially, Republicans tried gamely to defend Richard Nixon when the leaks about the Watergate break-in were appearing in the Washington Post. But eventually it became obvious that some dastardly deeds had been done and that Nixon was probably behind it. Then Republicans joined the mob, and Nixon resigned.
Many have wondered if things would have been different had Nixon been a Democrat. Of course they would. We are seeing it play out right before our eyes.
The bombshell news is that Susan Rice was the surrogate who ordered the results from surveillance on Trump to be put together in detailed spreadsheets, presumably for easy dissemination.
But Obama was the kingpin, and he had to have condoned that spy op. So far Democrats and the MSM have circled the wagons to protect Obama. Rice, however, may end up taking the fall for the boss. She'll probably continue to be a good soldier -- like the mobster who does his time and keeps his mouth shut.
