From USA Today:

Paul Rosenzweig, a senior fellow at the R Street Institute and a former Whitewater prosecutor under Kenneth Starr, said there’s a strong parallel between what happened more than four decades ago and what Trump is doing.

“Nixon’s problems stem from using presidential authority to protect himself and advance his own political interest … Trump’s activities sound a lot more like that. It’s using governmental authority to advance his own interest,” Rosenzweig said.

Rosenzweig, though, said the allegations against Trump are highly unprecedented.

“We’ve never had a president blatantly use foreign powers,” he said. “Nixon was all about domestic stuff.”
