Representative Darrell Issa California Republican, one of the most vocal critics of the White House throughout the Sestak job-offer controversy, compared the scandal to Watergate during a Fox News interview Friday afternoon.

“Richard Nixon had some deniability from the plumbers until he began becoming part of the cover-up,” Issa said. “At this point, 10 weeks later, lots of witness tampering or at least witness interrogation by people who are self-serving, uh, we’re beginning to go down that same road.”

He also repeated his call for President Obama to clear the air.

“It’s now time for the president to say, ‘Enough is enough, I promised to have higher integrity. And that will include having somebody on the outside tell us what we did right or wrong,'” Issa said.
