Richard Nixon

F.B.I. Used Informant to Investigate Russia Ties to Campaign, Not to Spy, as Trump ClaimsNew York Times

It’s too bad for Richard Nixon that he wasn’t able to come up with a similarly quick-witted explanation for Watergate.

It reminded me of a joke:

A man sees one of his neighbors scattering crumbs all around his house.

“Why are you doing that?” he asked.

“I’m keeping the tigers away.”

“But there aren’t any tigers around here.”

“That’s right. You see how well it works?”
