A lawsuit filed by the Democratic National Committee over interference in the 2016 election summons another Watergate-era specter: the DNC’s 1972 lawsuit filed against the Nixon campaign over the Watergate burglary. There are obvious similarities between the two. But the 1972 lawsuit ended well for the DNC, with a $750,000 settlement on the day Nixon resigned. It’s unlikely that the 2018 lawsuit will repeat the successes of 1972.
