Trump more corrupt than Nixon

…In Trump, Dean says he has observed many of his former boss’s most dangerous traits—obsessive vengefulness, reflexive dishonesty, all-consuming ambition—but none of Nixon’s redeeming qualities.

“I don’t think Richard Nixon even comes close to the level of corruption we already know about Trump.”

“The Trump campaign is an interesting measure of how high the tolerance has gotten for a public figure’s misbehavior.”

–John Dean, White House counsel 1970-73, in McKay Koppins, “‘He Is Going to Test Our Democracy as It Has Never Been Tested’: Why Nixon’s former lawyer John Dean worries Trump could be one of the most corrupt presidents ever—and get away with it,” The Atlantic, 1/17/17
