    Is the current FBI flap over emails worse than Watergate?

    One candidate claims the emails currently under question are worse than the Watergate incident decades ago. Do you remember that incident? What is your opinion?

    It isn't just bypassing rules set to protect top secret information. It is what the emails reveal like Clinton taking donations/bribes from foreign governments like Qatar to take them off human rights watch lists that limited trade, taking bribes to remove nations from terror watch lists or approve trade deals.
    It is the corruption that they show and the breadth of it that is the biggest problem.

    There are other problems like the DNC revealed to have bird-dogged Republican events, sending in sympathetic troublemakers (70 year old woman with oxygen tank) that were paid to incite violence and have it recorded so that the DNC could then blame Republicans, saying they were the violent ones.
    The collusion with the media, having dozens of reporters arrive at Democrat events to get talking points and giving Clinton debate questions in advance, is yet another scandal. The near silence on these scandals is only more proof of said collusion.

      The Democrats haven't said the messages about bribery, corruption, abuse of power were fake - they are admitting to those acts, which are why Democrats are unfit for office.

      Tamara,
      The Republicans are a bit less evil, but still evil.
      They do the same as the democrats.
      The government is out for control, has no interest in protecting citizens freedoms nor what's good for the country.
      A sad state we are in.
      Cheers

    Marcy, great question.
    Having lived through Watergate, let me share what I remember.
    Nixon's minions took it upon themselves to break-in to the DNC. After that, Nixon became aware of the info they found and that the break-in occurred.
    He could have avoided the controversy if he had shared the info with the public when he received it. It was only because he tried to cover up the info, once he was made aware of it, that got him into trouble.
    Hillary killary's problem is this, according to emails and testimony,
    1) She was aware of the illegal activity
    2) She encouraged the illegal activity which she, her husband and others benefited from
    3) She actively tried to cover-up those actions (This is where it's similar to Nixon)
    4) She destroyed evidence that showed all the accusations listed above were true (Again, similar to Nixon)
    5) The mishandling of classified documents (Nixon never was accused of mishandling classified info)
    6) She worked with the DNC to smear Sanders (Nixon tried to smear his opponent with the info from the DNC break-in, not someone in his own party)
    7) Hillary killory praises Comey. When Comey finds additional info that is contradictory to what hillary killory's stated under oath, he notifies members of Congress. (similar to what the DOJ did to Bush during Bill's first presidential run) Now she's irate that Comey is following the direction of facts like he's supposed to.  (This is similar to Nixon firing "Special Prosecutors")
    So, hillary killary's actions are much worse than Nixon's.
    Nixon was caught covering one act of breaking the law.
    hillary killay's under FBI investigation for:
    1) Mishandling classified information
    2) Perjury during an FBI investigation
    3) Perjury while testifying to a Congressional Committee
    4) Bribery for favors while Secretary of State
    5) Participation in a money laundering scheme at the Clinton Foundation
    6) Encouraging or participating in the hiring of thugs to incite violence at political rallies
    7) Destroying documents after receiving a subpoena stating she was not allowed to destroy anything
    8) While under investigation, a continuation of lies and of destroying evidence that might incriminate her
    Might have missed something, and open to additional info from anyone.
    All Nixon did was cover-up knowledge of a break-in performed by someone else. So, yeah, hillary killary's actions are worse than Nixon's.
    Hope that helps in your understanding.
    Cheers

    The problem with comparing this to watergate is that watergate happened  over 40 years ago and what started as a simple break in wound up being a colossal cover up resulting in 12 people going to prison.

    For all we know now Hillary's email server "mistake" (lol) could be at the same point as watergate starting with a simple break in. Now it's just begining to unwind. When and if it finally unwinds, who is to say it won't result in a massive coverup involving the Obama administration, the DoJ, the FBI, and what ever else imaginable, deleted tapes (whoops I mean emails) 15 - 20 people going to jail, resignation or impeachment of a president (Hillary maybe).

    40 years from now the history books just might be comparing it to watergate, we can't begin to know yet. But if so, Trump's words will be looked back on as being prophetic, and that wouldn't surprise me one bit because Nixon wasn't a criminal mind, Hillary is. Given the depth of what is already suspected I'd bet what we know is only the tip of the iceberg.

    The FBI for one thing is coming apart at the seams

    http://www.naturalnews.com/055835_James … ation.html

    and we have an  Attorney General Loretta Lynch who when asked  has formally refused to answer questions from Congress about the Obama Administration’s huge cash payments to Iran. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS) described Lynch’s response as “unacceptable,” and said she has chosen to “essentially plead the Fifth.”

    The people in the Obama administration are capable of just about anything imaginable, if you know anything about Holder's record, the IRS's Lois Lerner and John Koskinen you know how obvious an observation that is.

    I think this will eventually be shown to be worse than Watergate, but only if Donald Trump is elected.  If Hillary Clinton is elected, then we can expect to see a fair amount of the information being archived - in other words, it will never see the light of day.  There are currently 5 separate FBI investigations in progress all connected to Mrs. Clinton; her aides, her associates and her family foundation have all been identified as subject matter.  It's my belief that Anthony Weiner has been bitter since being forced out of his Congressional seat and since then has been "compiling" a nest egg of information to use as he saw fit.  Now that he's on the "outside looking in" there's no reason to keep any more secrets.  He has little to lose in the disclosure of the 650,000 e-mails; who sent them, who they were sent to, what they contain, etc.  The fact that the FBI was about to lose over 100 agents because they felt Hillary Clinton was getting a pass should also send a strong message to America that she was receiving unfair and unethical cover from the DOJ.  It's clearly not going away no matter how hard the administration tries to cover it up and based on the news cycle over the last few days, America is no longer comfortable with it.

    Ok, well we obviously have some replies devoid of rationalism here, so lets consider what is currently being discovered:

    Media bias -  a list of no less than 65 mainstream “reporters” whose campaign coverage constituted propaganda for the Clinton campaign.

    Hillary Clinton's use of personal unsecured email for classified government business has been proven, Hillary Clinton as the Secretary of State, bound by very clear government regulations, violated nearly every one of them.  The excuse that someone else also may have violated those laws and regulations in the past, does not absolve her of wrongdoing.

    Emails help further reveal the corruption and criminal activity/use of the Clinton Foundation. On October 26, The Washington Post reported on a memo that outlined the intersections of the Clinton Foundation, and how it helped boost Bill and Hillary Clinton’s personal income. Since Bill left the White House, he and Hillary have made tens of millions of dollars partnering and networking with wealthy and corporate influencers illegally funneling donations back to themselves.

    Her lack of empathy for others, her lack of truthfulness, having one position for the public (voters) and one for the private (donors/wealthy).

    Her willingness to corrupt the DNC Primaries, to commit voter fraud, to do whatever it takes, to whomever, to gain power and influence for herself.

    What is uncovered now, is still being digested and proves her to be totally corrupt and untrustworthy, what is more disconcerting, is that they aren't even done yet... who knows how much more has yet to be dragged into the light.

    Hillary if elected, will be a lame duck President on the fast road to being Impeached.  There is no way this much can be exposed to the public, and have her survive it... so yes, this is significantly worse that Water Gate... and what is worse, is she is not yet President, one can only imagine what crimes would be committed should she be so.

    Nixon did not risk the security of the United States by compromising classified information---nor did he gain a penny for the break-in, which he was foolish enough to cover up, but which he had no knowledge of beforehand. Clinton, on the other hand, used an insecure server, knowing full well that doing so was not permitted by federal law, precisely because doing so risks the safety of all Americans. All federal employees know this; it is one of the first things they learn. Nevertheless, she set up her secret server.
    Although Nixon resisted turning over his tapes in the beginning, he eventually did so, although several minutes were missing. Clinton, on the other hand, wiped her server clean, and her aides destroyed her devices with a hammer. Big difference between Nixon, who actually promoted civil rights and accomplished a great deal of good for our nation, and Hillary, whose only accomplishment was providing some funding for clean up after 9/11.
    Long story short, this latest Hillary scandal, and in fact, all of her scandals, are far worse than Watergate. Nixon did not line his own pockets at the expense of the American people. And Hillary?? That is all she has ever done. Furthermore, she has destroyed the lives of decent people, like Vince Foster, who worked like a dog for her.

    Clinton contaminates everything she touches. Not so with Richard Nixon. He may have been paranoid, but he didn't have contempt for the common man, the way Hillary does.

    Hillary sold her soul long ago, to have power and wealth. I don't know about Comey, but FBI agents have had enough. There is more to come folks. Hold on to your hats!

    I don't think so. Comey never should have released this, because we have no info about the emails, and it's so close it could throw the election. He should step down.

    Also, if Hillary did all these crimes, why has she never been convicted? From what I understand the instructions for handling info when she was Secretary of State was so antiquated, they were supposed to print and file all the emails. They need to update all the technology and make it a new cabinet position. This talk of trying to impeach her already is ridiculous, and in the meantime, Trump is making us embarrassed all over the world. Other countries are scared should he win. He has no idea what being a President entails, and Hillary is more qualified than most men who have been POTUS in several elections now.
