TOOBIN: "If I could just elaborate on one point Carl is making, one difference from watergate is that, you know, Nixon was obstructing the FBI in private, in secret, in meetings in the oval office that it took a Supreme Court fight to get access to the tapes. Trump is obstructing the FBI in plain view by firing the director. It changes the story somehow in perception. But the intent seems to be exactly the same."
