How to use Watergate in a sentence?

  1. Kate Andersen Brower:

    Pat Nixon was completely in the bunker during Watergate, which dragged on for two years. She stopped reading the newspapers at the height of the barrage and blamed others, in this case Republicans, for trying to bring her husband down, at one point the West Wing staff cut off her newspapers in an effort to shield her from the headlines. But she knew exactly what was going on and she defended her husband until the end.

  2. John Dean:

    I'm clearly not a fact witness, but I hope I can give them some context and show them how strikingly like Watergate what we're seeing now, and as reported in the Mueller report, is. So I've taken several examples from the Mueller report relating to obstruction of justice, which is their focus today and looked at those and made the comparisons.

  3. Sam James Ervin, Jr.:

    I used to think that the Civil War was our country's greatest tragedy, but I do remember that there were some redeeming features in the Civil War in that there was some spirit of sacrifice and heroism displayed on both sides. I see no redeeming features in Watergate.

  4. John Dean:

    You've got to put this in a larger perspective, mcGahn is doing what he should do, and what was resolved after Watergate as to who is the client of the White House counsel. The client was presumed when I was there to be Nixon. The president. Today, it's clear that it is not the case. It's the Office of the President he represents, and there can be real differences between the incumbent president and the office itself, and McGahn represents the office.

  5. Fifth Avenue:

    It is no different than Watergate, except a much more important location, it is the same theft—just modern day.
