    Because of today's environment where everyone has their own facts and truth I think he could have gotten away with it if it all went down today. There wasn't the skepticism about journalism and journalists. Many fewer would have believed Woodward and Bernstein. There are powers that have been very successful at sewing that seed of doubt in main stream news sources.

    And, if so, can Trump survive the Russia scandal(s), if he admits what happened and offers an apology?

    (Assuming we have a sense of what the "Russia scandal" is likely to be.)

    Your thoughts?
    Russia! Lol ------ Putin just raises his eyes to the skies now ------------ it is ridiculous BUT if you shout it loud enough and long enough allegory indeed becomes fact in the minds of the hoi polloi.

    Suck enough dick and suck it well and you'll never need a face lift PACE - old bean. I could give you a few tips if you want.

    Putin's is the only sane voice on the world stage today - If anyone is to save us it will be him. Don't forget that in your hysteria over your Killary's loss - Putin is The Man.

    There is no need for that type of comment.

    Bullshit that son of a bitch let his own sailors drown in a sub because he didn't want help from the US and the UK to save them. On a personal note keep your tips to yourself; I'm not one of those who is fascinated by a flesh merchant who exploited teen aged girls for profit. That would be others here.

    This is a really good question to ask because I think it makes people reflect back on what "we the people" demanded from our government during the days of Nixon.

    To answer your question, Yes, Nixon would have been able to get away with his crime in today's society. We no longer have the moral compass we had then. Whether we recognize it or not we are in some ways fighting another civil war. It's just being waged through our political representatives.

    We can't even agree on facts. How crazy is that?
    Thanks from Madeline, Ian Jeffrey and PACE

    President Nixon could not have survived. Too many hurdles needed to be jumped over. You cannot abuse apologizing and asking for forgiveness.

    Imo
