Bob Woodward: Hillary’s Emails Remind Me of Nixon Tapes

Bob WoodwardAppearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, veteran reporter Bob Woodward said the Hillary Clinton email story reminded him of a story he helped break: President Richard Nixon’s cover-up of Watergate.

“Follow the trail here,” Woodward said. “There are all these emails. Well, they were sent to someone or someone sent them to her. So, if things have been erased here, there’s a way to go back to who originated these emails or who received them from Hillary Clinton.”

“So, you’ve got a massive amount of data. It, in a way, reminds me of the Nixon tapes,” he said. “Thousands of hours of secretly recorded conversations that Nixon thought were exclusively his. Hillary Clinton initially took that position, ‘I’m not turning this over, there’ll be no cooperation…'”

“This has to go on a long, long time, and the answers are probably not going to be pretty,” Woodward concluded.
