The FBI raiding Mar-a-Lago on August 8th, the anniversary of Richard Nixon announcing he’s resigning, has a certain poetry to it.

1/x The FBI raiding Donald Trump is unprecedented. It is corrupt & an abuse of power. What Nixon tried to do, Biden has now implemented: The Biden Admin has fully weaponized DOJ & FBI to target their political enemies. And with 87K new IRS agents, they’re coming for YOU too.

Presidential Records Act of 1978 was passed in response to Nixon's effort to take his Presidential tapes and papers with him to California, where they were in danger of being destroyed.

If DoJ has the goods on Trump, then charge him. But raiding his home for a violation of the presidential records act on the anniversary of Nixon’s resignation smells like partisan bullshit and an abuse of power.

The Republican Party could have dumped Trump like they did Nixon. Instead, they chose to be his accomplices. This is not about right or left. Democrat or Republican. This is about the rule of law. And the GOP has turned into a crime syndicate.

all accountable, impliedly including Trump (5) executive privilege belongs to Biden now, and SCOTUS told Nixon that criminal system overrides it anyway; (6) the country needs to prepare for indictments and remember what we were founded on: Truth. Equality. No More Kings. /end

August 8, 1974: Richard Nixon announces he is resigning as President. August 8, 2022: Donald Trump announces his home is being raided by the FBI. Damn, Dark Garland has a sick sense of humor.

Spiro Agnew’s Ghost
@SpiroAgnewGhost
At this hour, 48 years ago tonight, August 8, 1974, President Nixon announced his resignation in a prime time address, 3 days after the “smoking gun” tape release fully imploded his Presidency. He had continually lied to the public & his own friends in Congress for over 2 years. https://t.co/2ObTTjq3DC

@vermontgmg Difference from Watergate was that WG was a trifle compared to this. Nixon was a ultimately loyal to our country and Trump is a traitor.

FBI: Judge, one last thing, we intend to execute this search warrant on the anniversary of Nixon’s resignation. Judge: To own the cons? FBI: Yes. Judge: Approved! Makes perfect sense… https://t.co/IIbZd8QBza

Nel 48esimo anniversario delle dimissioni di Nixon, l'FBI ha perquisito la casa di Trump. Trump si conferma essere il criminale fomentatore di una destra golpista. È il primo Presidente nella storia🇺🇸 ad avere subito 2 impeachment, e indagato per l'assalto al Congresso degli USA. @rulajebreal's photo on Nixon

Perquisition Trump: Ce qu'il faut savoir/retenir ▶️(5) Joe Biden a le pouvoir d'accorder un privilège exécutif à Trump mais, dans le cas de Nixon, la SCOTUS a dit que le système pénal l'emportait de toute façon.

Vor 48 Jahren trat #Nixon zurück. Gerald Ford, sein VP wurde Präsident. Fords Frau geht als eine jener #Firstladies in die Geschichte ein, die bis heute wohl bekannter sind als ihr Mann. Sie sprach sich für Frauenrechte aus, machte ihre Brustkrebs- u ihre ihre Suchterkrankung 1/2 https://t.co/zbwoFu89S1

@GregAbbott_TX The one thing that is Nixonioan is the Republican corruption and criminality. Except back then, at least some Republicans had a spine. They didn't decide to go all-in on Nixon's crimes. What you're doing is equivalent to demanding to punish the FBI for investigating Watergate.

@SenTomCotton As a member of Congress, you should have knowledge that Congress passed a law in response to Nixon's bad deeds that required government officials to preserve records. Former presidents CANNOT destroy or steal classified records. Do you approve of breaking the law?

It was 48 years ago yesterday that Nixon announced his resignation. We were watching on TV and could hear cheers going up from the neighbors. Trump is worse than Nixon. The world danced in the streets when he was defeated. It will celebrate when he is finally convicted too.

Q: What is the difference between the #FBI raid and #Watergate asks Mr Trump? Is it that Nixon didn’t run a coup d’etat during his presidency. #auspol

@dick_nixon
I spoke quickly and I think most of you get it, but there have been a few incidents of misunderstanding. The standard for a warrant is the lowest in law -- probable cause. But probable cause looks different for John Smith vs. a former President of the United States.

@Streetjust
The FBI has NEVER raided a former President before? Not even Nixon after he resigned? What classified documents could Trump have had that would have prompted the FBI to take such unprecedented action?

@ProjectLincoln @SykesCharlie When you consider the fact that it was congressional republicans who have Nixon the ultimatum to resign or be impeached and removed, it becomes clear@just how far the GOP has fallen.

@ArgentMottyl @Sensei415 @harrylitman @marceelias Good question. Ford pardoned Nixon. Not sure if that excluded him from holding office. GOP would have to win 2024. Trump is getting older and might not do well in prison.
