Last quote about Watergate

How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy! I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election! I somewhat do. I must tell you I somewhat do. I very much appreciated the fact that they found what they found.

As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.

Donald J. Trump

How low has (former) president Obama gone to tap my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy! I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that (former) president Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to election! Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my 'wires tapped' in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!

Benjamin J. Rhodes

No President can order a wiretap. Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you.

Kevin Lewis

A cardinal rule of the Obama Administration was that no White House official ever interfered with any independent investigation led by the Department of Justice. As part of that practice, neither President Obama nor any White House official ever ordered surveillance on any U.S. citizen. Any suggestion otherwise is simply false.

Lindsey Graham

I'm very worried that our president is suggesting that the former president has done something illegally.

Roger Stone

What the president doesn't understand is he has more power than he knows. He needs to clean house. Just clean house! Hand the pink slips to everybody. . . . Lock them out of their offices and tell the FBI to start going through their emails and phone messages.

Thomas J. Barrack Jr.

He's angry, and he thinks that the leaks – even forgetting the rhetoric on politics – are a significant problem that hurts the security of the country. He feels if he can't rely on his team, if he were negotiating with North Korea on something sensitive and death by a thousand leaks continued, he views that as really being disruptive to the security of America.

Ben Sasse

We are in the midst of a civilization-warping crisis of public trust, and the President's allegations today demand the thorough and dispassionate attention of serious patriots.

Donald J. Trump

How low has President Obama gone to tapp my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy! I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to Election! The first meeting Jeff Sessions had with the Russian Amb was set up by the Obama Administration under education program for 100 Ambs……. Just out: The same Russian Ambassador that met Jeff Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times, and 4 times last year alone.

Donald J. Trump

Is it legal for a sitting President to be 'wire tapping' a race for president prior to an election? Turned down by court earlier. A new low! I'd bet a good lawyer could make a great case out of the fact that President Obama was tapping my phones in October, just prior to election! How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy!

Bruce Green

It would obviously be improper for the government to seek wiretap authorization for partisan political purposes, rather than legitimate criminal investigative or national security purposes as set out in the application to the court. In prior administrations, if a President directed the Attorney General or another government lawyer to seek wiretap authorization for illegitimate reasons, the lawyer would have been expected to try to dissuade the President and, if the President persisted in giving this order, to refuse and/or resign.

Clint Watts

They deliberately withhold that because they don't want the president to get involved in an ongoing investigation. They play by a really strict rulebook at DoJ.

Bruce Green

An ethical government lawyer would be expected to disclose the President's involvement to the court, which could then be expected to deny authorization.

How low has President Obama gone to tap my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy! Arnold Schwarzenegger isn't voluntarily leaving the Apprentice, he was fired by his bad (pathetic) ratings, not by me. Sad end to great show.

Donald J. Trump

How low has President Obama gone to tapp [sic] my phones during the very sacred election process. This is Nixon/Watergate. Bad (or sick) guy! I think President Obama's behind it, because his people are certainly behind it. The first meeting Jeff Sessions had with the Russian [ambassador] was set up by the Obama Administration under education program for 100 [ambassadors]. Just out: the same Russian ambassador that met Jeff Sessions visited the Obama White House 22 times, and 4 times last year alone.

Nancy Pelosi

The other part of it is the possibility of perjury, which is punishable by law for anybody else. Certainly we should have that be standard for the highest-ranking law enforcement person in our country.

Sarah Sanders

I mean Chuck Schumer sitting and having drinks with Putin and that's not a news story, but apparently a volunteer for a campaign bumping into one at a conference where there's, again, dozens of other ambassadors is newsworthy.

Nancy Pelosi

So this recusal is an admission that something went on but it's not sufficient. There are two things. One is the recusal as a surrogate of then candidate Trump's campaign and having communication with the Russian government knowing they were hacking our system. That's what the recusal is about, however narrow it is.

Donald J. Trump

We should start an immediate investigation into @SenSchumer and his ties to Russia and Putin. A total hypocrite!

Richard Blumenthal

I'd like him to explain what was said during that September 8 meeting. And what came of it, and also what other meetings there may have been, because if he misled us as to that meeting, what other meetings might he also have failed to disclose?

Donald J. Trump

This whole narrative is a way of saving face for Democrats losing an election that everyone thought they were supposed to win. The Democrats are overplaying their hand. They lost the election, and now they have lost their grip on reality.

Sarah Sanders

I guess it's kind of lost on me where that would be newsworthy in any capacity. I mean Chuck Schumer sitting and having drinks with Putin and that's not a news story, but apparently a volunteer for a campaign bumping into [an ambassador] at a conference where there's, again, dozens of other ambassadors is newsworthy?

Robert Kelly

There's no popular leader on the right... I would be shocked if the left didn't walk away [from the election] victorious. This will be similar to the U.S. Democrats winning after Watergate. I would be surprised if Ban Ki-moon can overcome the disdain for Saenuri.

Donald J. Trump

This is the biggest scandal since Watergate. Hillary is the one who sent and received classified information on an insecure server putting the safety of the American people under threat.

Donald J. Trump

I have great respect for the fact that the FBI and the Department of Justice are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made. This was a grave miscarriage of justice that the American people fully understood, and it is everybody's hope that it is about to be corrected. ... The news this morning is–this is bigger than Watergate.

Donald J. Trump

This is the biggest political scandal since Watergate, and it's everybody's deepest hope that justice at last will be beautifully delivered.

Donald J. Trump

This is the biggest political scandal since Watergate, and it's everybody's deepest hope that justice, at last, can be properly delivered. Hillary has nobody to blame but herself for her mounting legal troubles. Her criminal action was willful, deliberate, intentional and purposeful.

Donald J. Trump

We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office. This is bigger than Watergate.

Donald J. Trump

The FBI would never have re-opened this case at this time unless it were a most egregious criminal offense. The investigation is the biggest political scandal since Watergate, and it's everybody's hope that justice at last can be delivered.

Glen Caplin

There is no getting around it: Donald Trump is cheering on a Russian attempt to influence our election through a crime reminiscent of Watergate but on a more massive scale. We're witnessing another effort to steal private campaign documents in order to influence an election. Only this time, instead of filing cabinets, it's people's emails they're breaking into and a foreign government is behind it.

Gilberto Hinojosa

It's no coincidence someone is hacking into Democratic Party computers. It's almost sounding like a repeat of Watergate. This is just the kind of dirty politics we expect from Donald Trump. I have no doubt Donald Trump is behind it.

Ben Bradlee - The Washington Post

People talk to journalists for a reason. It is up to the journalist to understand the reason as best he can and I think that we did understand Mark Felt. He was disturbed by what he saw happening in the White House, what he saw being covered up and he decided to go public.

Rod Blagojevich

By the way, if anybody wants to tape my conversations, go right ahead, feel free to do it. I appreciate anybody who wants to tape me openly and notoriously. Those who feel like they want to sneakily and wear taping devices, I would remind them that it kinda smells like Nixon and Watergate.
