Is the brewing Trump-Russia scandal worse than Watergate?
The break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters in the Watergate Hotel in Washington in 1972, and subsequent attempts by the White House to cover up its abuse of power, brought down Richard Nixon in 1974.
People like Tapper argue the scope and stakes of Trump-Russia are exponentially larger than the "third-rate burglary" that was Watergate—because this time, the alleged crime is colluding with a hostile foreign power to rig an American election.
