John W. Dean: Only someone who knows nothing about the law, and the darkest moment of our recent political history, would see a parallel between [President] Nixon’s crimes and [Hillary] Clinton’s mistakes. … Whatever mistakes Clinton made, her actions bear no similarities whatsoever to Nixon’s criminalization of his presidency, and his efforts to corrupt much of the executive branch. … None of this is to say that Clinton did not make mistakes with her email server. But to compare them to Watergate is more than historical ignorance. It distorts our understanding of what actually constitutes an abuse of power, and raises the risks that we will someday install another leader who is all too happy to misuse historical memory to indulge a dark and nasty nature.
