Lockhart: Trump Will Abuse Any Power to Get Reelected; Haven’t Seen that Since Nixon

‘What choice do we have other than to think that he’ll abuse any power of the presidency to make sure he gets reelected’

EXCERPT:

LOCKHART: "I think they try to get down the major points as closely as they could without a recording to go and do as stenographers did. So I’m not saying there’s anyone in the Situation Room that tried to leave things out. I’m just saying that you can’t capture the entire conversation with this summary. That’s why the whistleblower complaint is so important, because apparently, according to news reports, this is only one part of an overall pattern. So we’ll need to see. But even this, as S.E. was saying, the President has admitted to this. He went one step further. He said he’d do it again. So what choice do we have other than to think that he’ll abuse any power of the presidency to make sure he gets reelected? We haven’t seen that since Richard Nixon."
