Elizabeth Holtzman appeared on Now This News’ Opinions, discussing the Watergate investigation and its parallels to the special investigation in Russia and the 2016 election. She said, “we saw in regard to Nixon, we had a president engaging in criminal conduct. Covering up a crime, breaking into Democratic National Committee headquarters. But he also engaged in abuses of power that had nothing to do with Watergate or the cover-up. So we had a president who put himself above the law. It was very important to get a marker and to show that our democracy could work.”
