Trump Has Many Problems But We Are Not At Watergate Yet

The case against Trump has been growing over time and his situation is being compared to Nixon's problems with Watergate.  This editorial argues that Watergate was about a real crime that was ordered by the president.  The break in of the Democratic National Committee's headquarters was a simple crime that everyone understood.  Obstruction of justice, and collusion, are more subtle forms of criminal behavior.  Moreover, Democrats controlled both houses of Congress during Watergate.  They are the minority in both houses today.  Perhaps the most successful way to deal with Trump is to beat Republicans at the polls and capture control of Congress.
