Just remember as you watch the hearings that Congress is a player in this too. They want the power.
Comparing Nixon surveilling anti-war protesters with Bush surveilling Islamic terrorists is ridiculous.
Besides, Hillary will do what she wants anyway...all those FBI files were illegal too.
Corruption is bound to happen in any administration at various levels. What we do is find it and prosecute it. We can't prosecute corruption if we're dead. And if we're dead, corruption doesn't matter anyway.
I heard Gergen the other day just SURE, absolutely POSITIVE, that domestic spying will commence on political opponents and be used for smears. How unserious is that? He's continuing the overreaction Congress delivered in the '70's (an overreaction that needs a course correction right about now).
There's all kinds of domestic spying done by political operatives. They don't need the NSA to do it. The internet, financial institutions, legal papers, and a good PI are all that are necessary.
I started watching the hearings today, then got so angry I looked for something else. '24' was on. Perfect.
