Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA) compared the Watergate scandal, which brought down the Nixon administration, to alleged Russian hacking into John Podesta’s email account and the DNC.
However, Kaine implied that the Russian hacking was worse than the Watergate saga. “That was a burglary of a party headquarters that was directed to some degree from the office of the president…[The Russian hacking] was not just on a party headquarters…attacks on individuals, current and former public officials with significant positions, and also attacks on state boards of elections,” Kaine said.
Kaine mainly praised the bipartisan nature of the Congressional investigation into President Richard Nixon’s involvement in the Watergate scandal, saying, “It was a high moment for Congress because Congress in a bipartisan way stood for the principle that you couldn’t undertake efforts to influence an American presidential election and have there be no consequence.”
“This is very serious. The combined intelligence of this country has concluded that efforts were undertaken to influence an election by an adversary,” Kaine added.
