Struggling Dem Claims Impeachments Shows Trump Part Of ‘Global Watergate’

Via The Washington Examiner:

Sen. Amy Klobuchar said that the impeachment effort against President Trump and investigation into his dealings with Ukraine has uncovered a “global Watergate.”

Appearing on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday, the Minnesota Democrat was asked about balancing the likely impeachment and Senate trial of Trump with campaigning for president. Klobuchar said that she was able to balance both but pointed out that she thinks the impeachment process is of utmost importance.

“The first obligation is a constitutional one,” she said. “This is something where the Founding Fathers themselves, James Madison, said that the reason we needed impeachment provisions was that he feared that a president would betray the trust of the American people to a foreign power. That’s why this is proceeding. I see it simply as a global Watergate.”

She spoke about how President Richard Nixon was involved with the 1972 break-in at the Watergate complex where the Democratic headquarters was located. Klobuchar said that, like Nixon, Trump was trying to unduly get “dirt on a political opponent.”
