Axelrod: ‘Nixon Was a Choirboy Compared to’ Trump

August 5, 2021

Wednesday on CNN’s Situation Room, CNN political commentator David Axelrod expressed his outrage ” over reports that former President Donald Trump allegedly attempted to push the Justice Department to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election to the point that acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen prepared to resign.

“I mean, we’ve never seen anything like it in our lifetimes…” Axelrod hyperventilated. “I’m old enough to remember a thing called the Saturday Night Massacre during Watergate when one after another Justice Department officials resigned rather than allow — rather than follow the orders of Richard Nixon to fire a special prosecutor who was looking into the Watergate break-in and was pursuing subpoenas against the White House. And that ultimately led to the unraveling of Richard Nixon.”

He continued, “Richard Nixon was a choir boy compared to this. This was an attempt to essentially steal an American election, an election for the presidency using the Justice Department as a front to do it. It’s the most appalling, disturbing thing you can imagine, and the only thing that disturbs me more is that the architect of that is currently the frontrunner for the nomination of his party to run again.”

What’s appalling and disturbing is the fact that the 2020 election was actually stolen by the Democrats, through massive and demonstrable voter fraud, and they then proceeded to craft and relentlessly promote the Big Lie that Trump was the one attempting to steal the election.
