And the Republicans had gotten pretty much everything they wanted from government by that time.
Nixon didn't go to prison but he resigned in shame and spent the remainder of his life in relative seclusion. The "respect" of his peers requires irony quotation marks.
The most generous credit to Nixon on the Republicans getting what they wanted from government is that he was such a horrible failure we got Carter, who was (perceived to be) such a horrible failure we got Reagan who delivered the GOP wish list.

In any event, "When the president does it, it's not a crime" are infamous words that followed him to the grave.

Didn't a bunch of Nixon's people wind up in W's administration? Cheney and Rumsfeld, just off the top of my head.

Ty Cobb is amazing. He's not my favorite random weirdo in the Trump orbit, but he has his charm. I mean, how does Trump find the one lawyer that sends out statements written in comic sans?

Well that and he'll be in his late 80's before he takes office.
