In an interview on MSNBC’s Morning Joe (below), veteran journalist Bob Woodward said the Hillary Clinton email scandal reminded him of the President Nixon tapes during the Watergate scandal.

“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.”

Woodward, who covered Watergate, said the large amount of data currently being reviewed by the State Department reminded him of the recorded conversations that Nixon thought were confidential.

“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," he added. "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.”
