Dole

Dole is now ranting about McClelland's lack of loyalty. At least he's consistent. Dole was also trying to keep the dirty linen from public view decades ago during the Nixon administration:

“… Then the Republican Party’s national chairman, Dole was a vocal defender of the Nixon White House during the early stages of the Watergate investigation. U.N. Representative George Bush took over Dole’s party post after the 1972 elections, but the senator remained a Nixon loyalist. In September 1973, he introduced an unsuccessful Senate resolution to stop live TV coverage of the congressional Watergate hearings. “It is time to turn off the TV lights,” Dole said. “It is time to move the Watergate investigation from the living rooms of America and put it where it belongs — behind the closed doors of the committee room and before the judge and jury in the courtroom.”
