On Wednesday, former New York Congresswoman, Elizabeth Holtzman sat down with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes to draw parallels to the Trump administrations Russian probe to Watergate.
“When is the last time such a vortex of alleged and confirmed criminal activity spun around the United States presidency?” Hayes asked.
“Watergate, and I remember it,” Holtzman said. “The tentacles are spreading and here it is the same thing. It’s was very sad.”
She said that President Donald Trump is a “wimp” for not sitting down with the Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
“[He is] disturbing the facts,” she said. “The president on one hand, kind of a flim-flam, ‘Oh, I want to talk to the special prosecutor, and talk to Robert Mueller,’ but he is kind of being a wimp.”
She said that President Trump would never sit in front of the special Counsel Robert Mueller.
“He is never going to go before Mueller to talk. The president is a liar. It is very dangerous for him to go forward. He is told so many different stories about so many different things,” Holtzman said.
“What it does is reminds me of is Watergate and we are getting to a very close intense time for him,” she said. “Giuliani thinks that if the president doesn’t come forward and testify, that Mueller is going to give up. The subpoena is what triggered the downfall of Richard Nixon. I don’t know how the president can claim that he is innocent, if there is a subpoena, and he refuses to come forward. What is he hiding? Why is he hiding?”

Conservative stunned Trump is allowing Giuliani to create more evidence against him
In a column for the Washington Post, conservative Jennifer Rubin was appalled -- but not surprised -- that Donald Trump is turning a blind eye to the fact that his personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is overseas trying to dig up dirt on Joe Biden despite the fact that the president is facing impeachment for exactly that abuse of power.
As Rubin puts it under a headline, "Trump creates evidence faster than the House can draft impeachment articles." Rubin first notes that the President has been conducting government business on unsecured lines, writing, "President Trump in the 2016 race made one argument against Hillary Clinton more than any other: Her sloppy handling of emails using a private server disqualified her from holding office. Someone that negligent with U.S. security could not be trusted."
From their balloons, the first aeronauts transformed our view of the world
Near the beginning of the new film “The Aeronauts,” a giant gas-filled balloon called the “Mammoth” departs from London’s Vauxhall Gardens and ascends into the clouds, revealing a bird’s eye view of London.
To some moviegoers, these breathtaking views might seem like nothing special: Modern air travel has made many of us take for granted what we can see from the sky. But during the 19th century, the vast “ocean of air” above our heads was a mystery.
‘Awful new normal’: Anti-vaxxers have started physically confronting parents taking kids to get shots
Anti-vaccination activists have taken a page from anti-abortion activists and have started standing outside clinics to physically confront people who are getting their children vaccinated.
NBC News reports that anti-vaxxers have decided that their online harassment and intimidation campaigns were not effective enough in dissuading parents from vaccinating their children, which is why they're now banking on face-to-face confrontations to get the job done.
