Hannity asks Pat Buchanan if he’s “ever seen it this bad, the media this abusively biased and corrupt?” Buchanan replies, “This is as bad as it was in the final days of Watergate with Richard Nixon. The tremendous overt hostility of the press, the media.”
He says, “Many of those press conferences of Nixon looked like things in a Roman forum. And I think the real problem here is the President senses that the media are the enemy and I think the media, undeniably, if you watch all three networks…are as hostile to this President as I’ve seen to any candidate or President in my lifetime.”
Hannity asks, “So what does he do, Pat? I mean you’ve been there, you know how hard it is inside that house, and you see the media acting this way. What do you do?”
Buchanan replies, “Well, I’ll tell you what’s coming and I think the President senses, we see with regard to Mueller and the special counsel, the President senses these folks are coming after him. I believe they are, they’re coming after his campaign I think they’re coming after his family, they’re coming after him.
He continues, “They’ve got investigators and prosecutors who are really steeped in white collar crime and the rest of it. What is going to happen, Sean, is this. Mr. Mueller’s going to make demands after demand after demand. He’s going to get some of them and then the President, I believe, is going to say ‘no more,’ which is what happened in Watergate in the Saturday night massacre.”
“I think there’s a real collision coming,” he says, “between Mueller and the President of the United States.” Hannity points to the many conflicts of interest as if Buchanan needed convincing or he had some power to intervene.” Buchanan says, “Sean, Archie Cox was a Kennedy man, Teddy Kennedy was at his swearing in. Seven of the first eleven guys he hired were ex-Kennedy McGovern staffers and aides.”
He says, “I agree with you. I do think the special counsel’s office is targeting the President. I think they’re going to go on and on and roll over one rock after another after another until the President says ‘I’ve had enough.’ And then we are right on the road, a familiar one to me, to the Saturday night massacre.” Hannity asks if he’s saying President Trump could be impeached.
“What I’m saying is I think he’s going to have a confrontation with Mueller. However,” Buchanan says, “I don’t think the President of the United States, he doesn’t have the authority to fire him, the Deputy Attorney General does, he would not do that. The Attorney General’s recused himself. I think he can get somebody to fire him if it comes down to that.”
“But let me tell you, during the Saturday night massacre we tried to shut down the special prosecutor’s office and they revived it and they got Jaworski, a new special prosecutor.” Buchanan says the Trump DOJ “should never have appointed the special prosecutor. That is a machine that’s established that grows, it’s lethal, it tends to become unfriendly and it comes right at the White House and the West Wing inevitably.
