“Historians hear echoes of Watergate’s 1973 Saturday Night Massacre in Comey’s firing” ABC News
ABC News reports on the firing of FBI Director James Comey with historians examining the similarities and differences with the Watergate scandal. Karen Greenberg says, "at this point, abuse of power and obstruction of justice are the main issues, and it's important to point out that each one raises many other subsidiary issues. One in particular is how Sessions could be a part of this firing when supposedly he recused himself from any participation in the investigation into the election." She continued saying, "the optics are hard to overcome, especially given Trump's Twitter feed, the attacks on accusers and his meeting with Russian officials that excluded the U.S. press."
