Are the new bribery charges against trump worse than the charges that were being brought up against disgraced former president Richard Nixon?

Nixon only covered up a burglary. Trump extorted a foreign nation for dirt on a political rival. Yes, that is worse. Foreign influence on our elections is what the framers feared most.

Yes. The charges against Nixon were obstruction of justice, for aiding and abetting a coverup of the Watergate burglaries after the fact. In Trump's case it appears that the President deliberately used his office to committ the initial crime of extortion and bribery.
I was not a Nixon supporter, but do respect his refusal to abuse his office and the power of pardon to evade his personal responsibility. I cannot imagine Donald Trump having the same respect for the office he holds.

This is worse than either impeachment ever.He only proceeded down this path because the Republicans just kept letting him get away with one infraction after another. Naturally he thought he was King and kept going. I blame the Republicans for his ability to keep going.
