Richard Nixon’s “I’m Not A Crook” Speech
“I am not a crook.”
On November 17, 1973, President Richard Nixon infamously denied any involvement in the Watergate scandal with his now timeless defense. History tells us, he was. He resigned the presidency and left office on August 9, 1974.
PRESIDENT RICHARD NIXON:
“And I want to say this to the television audience. I made my mistakes. But in all of my years of public life, I have never profited – never profited from public service. I’ve earned every cent. And in all of my years of public life, I have never obstructed justice.
Because people have got to know whether or not their president is a crook. Well, I’m not a crook. I’ve earned everything I’ve got.
I am not a crook.”
What’s the difference between Trump and Nixon? So far it seems Nixon had admitted his mistakes… What do you think?
