Jimmy Carter’s Former Strategist And Pollster: ‘Clinton Cash’ Scandal Is “Worse Than Watergate” .. “They Were Selling Out The National Interests Of The United States Directly To Adversaries And Others For Money.”
As a Democratic presidential candidate, you know you are in tough shape when other Democrats are publicly calling your actions as Secretary of State worse than Watergate.
Appearing on Breitbart News on Sirius XM, pollster and strategist former President Jimmy Carter, Pat Caddell, told host Stephen Bannon, just that.
“This is the greatest scandal in the history of the United States,” he said. “They all ought to be indicted. This is worse than Watergate.”
If you are unfamiliar with Watergate, it is probably the most infamous scandal that is attributed to President Richard Nixon, and caused the former president to resign from office in disgrace. It began when men broke into the headquarters of the Democratic National Party at the Watergate Complex.
They were caught in the act of trying to wire tap the phone lines of Democratic officials, and investigators were able to tie the group to the Republican Party. The attempt was to spy on the political enemies of the administration. Nixon, who is believed to have had nothing to do with the break-in ordered the subsequent cover up, and the command was recorded on listening devices that he had had installed in the Oval Office.
The FBI demanded access to those tapes, but Nixon blocked the attempts to have the tapes from being handed over, sort of like Hillary Clinton when she was trying to destroy evidence that could implicate her of wrongdoing.
Nixon, though he was not indicted of any charges, was deemed a co-conspirator of Watergate, and stepped down.
Hillary Clinton, after breaking the law by sending top secret information over a personal server that was against the rules to be using in the first place as the Secretary of State, instead of apologizing to the American people or stepping down, has decided to steam roll ahead and pursue the highest office in the land.
Caddell also criticized Clinton over using the Clinton Foundation, a non-profit charity to accept donations from foreign governments, in an effort to allegedly gain favors from the then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
