A Long Island political leader was indicted for involvement in a grand theft auto ring a couple of decades ago.
President Nixon arranged illegal wiretapping of the Democratic Party's campaign plans while there was a convention at the Watergate Hotel.
President Reagan had Oliver North oversee a program to sell drugs in order to raise money that congress had no oversight over with which to purchase huge gun shipments and give them to anti-communist terrorists to overthrow the government of Nicaragua at the time.

The remark made me think the resistance is working in real time.
