Buchanan: Did we witness a redux of the ‘Saturday Night Massacre’ the other day? Is this Watergate 2017?


Pat Buchanan was on SyrusXM radio with host Raheem Kassam on Thursday’s Breitbart News Daily. The discussion that you can hear below starts out with the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Mr. Buchanan puts some historical perspective to the hysterical claims that are coming from the Democrats and the mainstream media. One of the charges from the left compares this to the Saturday Night Massacre from the President Nixon era. Nothing could be further from the truth and Pat does a good job of showing how deceitful or ignorant these charges really are. He says the Democrats are trying to reverse the election by overthrowing President Trump in any way that they can. I call that a coup attempt.

Richardson had agreed to go along and promote a compromise for some tapes that Nixon was supposed to turn over to the special prosecutor. Richardson was with us, and then he suddenly balked.”……
