    •  It goes to before Nixon (none)
      who came up during the long reign of J. Edgar Hoover, and probably envied the influence that his files on everyone gave him.  Nixon attempted to build that kind of power, and in classic projection, the GOP saw Clinton doing what they themselves were eager to do. Now under king George whose Hoover Envy is as big and dumb as the rest of his childish fantasies, the boys are back, and running hog wild with all new toys, and less oversight than Hoover had.
      •  You are sooo correct. This whole ride (none)
        From 1980 on, has been one long primal scream to work out the the public bootprint left on the plutocrats' ass after Watergate.
