In rolling out a film about the main political scandal in U.S. history. On the Russian screens the picture is Director Peter Landesman came under the name of «Watergate. The collapse of the White house.» The film is based on real events and tells of the investigation into the wiretapping of the headquarters of the Democratic party in the hotel «Watergate». As you know, this case led to the resignation of elected to a second term Republican President Richard Nixon.

The correspondent of RIA Novosti watched the tape together with the expert, historian Igor Laskovym and discussed with him, as security forces become a state within the state and will trump the fate of Nixon.

The hero of the picture — faithful Hoover Deputy mark felt — hoped to take the Director’s chair, but is considered dangerous and uncomfortable for the candidate because he knows too much. He remains the Eminence Grise in the new, loyal leader. But, despite all the efforts of the presidential administration, the Watergate investigation was not able to hush up. The movie is iconic phrase «no one will stop the flywheel of the FBI investigation, even the FBI.» Igor Gashkov believes that this situation is typical not only for America of the 70s.

«Hush up, Nixon was not able, because did not control the security services, which have become a state within a state. Intelligence agencies monitor, for whom, and to follow them is impossible: you need another intelligence Agency. Nothing specifically American here. All French presidents have openly hated their intelligence agencies, because they thought that those break under them. And not without reason,» — said the expert.

«Crime intelligence is a different story. The secret service is not to dismiss or dissolve, their actions, she explains the reasons of national security. The President may say that it is not aware of the actions of the security services, and to deflect responsibility. After the famous scandal with the listening of the CIA of the German Chancellor, Obama called Merkel and told her exactly that,» explains the expert.

Neither the revelations of Edward Snowden, no leaks, Bradley manning did not cost Obama the presidency. Igor Gashkov confident that, given the balance of power in the us Congress where the majority is Republicans, the current head of the White house Donald Trump is also unlikely to face the fate of his beloved President Richard Nixon. Perhaps that is why «Watergate» leaves no feeling of the film is sharp and relevant. There are no obvious villains, and therefore no heroes.
