Earlier this year he blabbed about how the "silent majority" supports him just as Nixon did in 1969 and on Wednesday night he claimed to have a "secret plan" to  destroy ISIS.   In 1968, Nixon told some editors of Mid-West newspapers that he had a secret plan to end the Vietnam War.

Well, Lang says he did.

1968, Richard Nixon - I have a secret plan to end the Viet Nam conflict.
2016, Trump - I have a secret plan to defeat ISIS.

If it worked once, can it work again?

The American public has a short memory but come-on!

Nixon did have a plan. It was to withdraw in phases. I participated in it. pl

But the more interesting comment is here.

The WaPo op-ed today ("The Hillary Clinton email Story is Out of Control") dares the public to accuse the FBI of incompetence, or worse, corruption.

Well, let's just call a spade a spade. Even the normally timid talking law head, Jonathan Turley, gets it (though without explicitly accusing the FBI of being rotten):

Turley fails to mention, here, the the incredibly strange recognition of lawyer-client privilege accorded to Cheryl Mills, but you can't blame him in the brief blog space allowed, there's an iceberg of unsavory material to work with vis-a-vis Clinton and staff. Turley states that Congress may well start doing its job as a check on government corruption. Congress should, and I'm sure it will, even though the FBI/DoJ dragged its feet so long that we're likely too late to put a stop to the Clinton Juggernaut/Trojan Horse.

Note: contrary to many commentators, the WaPo op-ed page has never been left-of-center on matters of foreign affairs and use of war. It should come as no surprise that it wishes Hillary's "email" story to go away.
