Former aides to Richard Nixon are coming out of the woodwork to bash “Deep Throat”:
If the FBI can’t be trusted to keep confidences, it shakes the citizens’ confidence in government, former Nixon White House Counsel Chuck Colson said on Wednesday.
Huh? As if the actions of Richard Nixon and his staff didn’t?
Granted, what went on in the Nixon White House was tame compared to Clinton, Johnson, or even Kennedy, but I truly hope conservatives aren’t going to employ situational ethics here. Right is right and wrong is wrong, no matter which party’s image gets egged.
