Whoops. That’s exactly what Republicans were saying when the FBI and newspaper investigators were closing in on President Richard “I am not a crook” Nixon for covering up the Watergate break-in by his operatives. Republican defenders of Nixon described it as merely a third-rate burglary and said investigating it would be a waste of time because nothing illegal or untoward happened.
Obama does seem more Nixonian all the time.
