Wilders is a piece of gutter trash, a gutless populist who has no morality to speak of.
I can't think of any reason why we would allow a sworn elected official (a sitting President no-less!) to commit crimes to further his political career.
America is country different than others: we are not a 'people', we are not a 'culture', we are not a 'former monarchy', we are not a 'geographical area', we are not a 'theocracy' - we are an idea! And that idea was laid forth in the Constitution. Without law, we are nothing, and I have little respect for those that break it (particular our civil servants and elected officials).
I said yes, absolutely. He was an exceedingly good President and I believe would have been remembered and considered as such.

He was actually a great President overall, I think it speaks to how far we, as the Public, have fallen when we outed Nixon for Watergate, but now don't seem to give a fudge about any misdeed of our politicians. But if you look at a lot of what Nixon did, there were lots of positives. Remember the old Vulcan proverb, "Only Nixon could go to China".

You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

No, Nixon was not a good president and Watergate was not the worst thing he did.
