http://www.usatoday.com/story/opini...il-released-state-department-column/71504450/ Clinton and Nixon both really sorry: Updated Column The Democratic front-runner is starting to sound a little like a president who resigned. Last month, famed Washington Post reporter andWatergate investigator Bob Woodward said that theemail scandal engulfing former secretary of State Hillary Clinton “reminds me of the Nixon tapes: thousands of hours of secretly recorded conversations that Nixon thought were exclusively his." Woodward’s impression is justified, and not just by the steady drip, drip of new secrets in the latest batch of Clinton emails released by the State Department on Monday. There is also a remarkable resonance between Nixon’s statements during the evolving Watergate crisis and Clinton’s public statements regarding her emails: The people come first Nixon: I welcome this kind of examination, because people have got to know whether or not their President is a crook. Well, I am not a crook. Clinton: I think it's kind of fun. People get a real-time behind-the-scenes look at what I was emailing about and what I was communicating about. I want to get the facts out ... Nixon: I want the public to learn the truth about Watergate and those guilty of any illegal actions brought to justice. Clinton: I want it all out there. ...because they are on my side Nixon: The facts will prove that the president is telling the truth. Clinton: That does not change the facts, and no matter what anybody tries to say, thefacts are stubborn.
