In an appearance on Sunday’s “Fox Report,” Democratic pollster Pat Caddell suggested the federal corruption charges against New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez were themselves corrupt.
Caddell lashed out at the Obama administration, saying “Nixon on steroids,” while asking when Democrats like New York Sen. Chuck Schumer will stand up to the White House.
“One of the things we should look at … the polling that shows the president’s numbers on dishonesty are record numbers and Hillary’s have flipped negative from positive from a year ago, and that is because everybody is corrupt,” Caddell told host Harris Faulkner.
“The Menendez thing – I want to say something. He has stood up for the country and the scandal that a year ago wasn’t going anywhere and suddenly we get this leak,” Caddell continued. “If you don’t think, let me tell you – this White House is Nixon on steroids.”
“I was watching ‘All the President’s Men’ last week. And I haven’t seen it in 25 years. I was the youngest person on Nixon’s enemies list. And I want to tell you, they went after him,” said a fiery Caddell. “They are going after [David] Petraeus. Anybody who leaves the fold they are going after. It is corruption and it’s Nixon on steroids. Somebody – where is somebody in my party to say they are not going to be threatened and are going to stand up for America, starting with Chuck Schumer.”
