Many political scandals acquire the “–gate” appellation simply because they are scandals.
They bear little similarity to the circumstances of the actual Watergate scandal itself. But the House Intelligence Committee memorandum on the abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) by the Obama FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) sheds light on a scandal that is strikingly similar to Watergate. Only it is far more sinister.
Do you agree that the FISA debacle makes Watergate look like child’s play?
