What difference does
it make now?

Below are resignations and convictions of Government officials that resulted from the Watergate scandal or otherwise among Nixon’s cronies. Out of the Fast and Furious, Benghazi investigations or other, numerous scandals in the Obama administration have come no convictions or resignations. The Republicans are just not interested in seriously prosecuting Obama and his cronies’ many crimes and misdeeds, mainly because they are complicit in many of them and benefit financially from maintaining the status quo. The investigations that the Republicans have done appear to be mostly theater to delude the voter about their real intentions.
