WHY ARE THEY TALKING OF WATERGATE?
Suddenly Trump’s mentioning possible tapes in the White Househas all the commentators talking
about Watergate and other presidential scandals.
During Watergate the Congress studied conduct truly awful
Illegal, reprehensible, and patently unlawful.
“I’m not a crook” said Nixon but they didn’t stop attacking
And the tapes that they uncovered were enough to send him packing.
The impeachment of Bill Clinton was a very different matter
Was it criminal or tawdry? In my view it was the latter.
His behavior was offensive, doesn’t call for absolution
But it surely didn’t undermine the U.S. Constitution.
Now it’s Trump who faces questions raised by Russian interference
And Republicans aren’t helping with unwavering adherence.
They should tell him: Learn from Watergate, however it upsets you!
It’s not the conduct you’re accused of, it’s the cover-up that gets you.
