Here’s why Trump’s impeachment is not like Nixon’s

 

Throughout the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, many comparisons have been drawn to the impeachment inquiry into President Nixon. In this impeachment edition of The Point, Chris Cillizza talks with Tim Naftali, CNN presidential historian, about the similarities and differences, not just between the men, but also the moment. #CNN #News #Cillizza #Impeachment

      @TheChickenRiceBowl I love chicken and rice my guy…

    • @TheChickenRiceBowl Lmaooo triggered

    • @Esteban Gomez Well you are easily fooled. Maybe they were actually on site, but they were putting on gas masks and army hats like they were 5 year olds playing outside. And then cracking jokes about the scud missles etc. But anyway I’ll leave you be. All MSM — CNN, FOX, ABC etc. are just one giant propaganda machine owned by the same people, who’s interest is to divide and conquer. Looks like they are doing a great job at it too.

  12. “I did NOT have sexual relations with that woman”…

    ..Yea ya did

  13. The title of this clip should really be, “How we can make a match out of the two”

  14. Man needs to speak for himself, me and many others, as americans, ain’t hurt at all

    • United States of America’s mieda needs to f..king look at what has happened to dictators and realise Donald Trump is a constitutional rights supporter. Not a fu..ing dictator like Hitler nepolon Bonaparte emperor Hirohito stalen Moe zoidong. Also United States of America needs a slap in the face of the constution
