Haldeman Bridget Anne Kelley and Ehrlichman David Wildstein.
Now, Watergate and the George Washington Bridge Scandal are obviously very different. But the attempt by a political bully to cut his losses by blaming his closest friends and aides for a scandal that threatens to destroy his career is too reminiscent.

Watergate and the George Washington Bridge Scandal are obviously very different. So are Christie and Nixon. Among other things, Nixon never got to be governor. And Christie will never be president.
