This is bigger than Watergate. This is bigger than Watergate. In my opinion. This is bigger than Watergate.

Donald Trump, campaign rally, Oct. 28

.

Trump has claimed that the Hillary Clinton email controversy is the biggest political scandal since Watergate, but now he flatly says it is bigger than Watergate. His campaign is now using this line:

.

There are a lot of unknowns about the Clinton investigation (see our Q&A here) right now, but we know a lot about the Watergate scandal. And the basic facts of both cases right now just dont compare. Lets take a look.

.

The Facts

.

FBI Director James B. Comey announced Friday that new emails had been found that might be relevant to the Hillary Clinton investigation. He wrote a cryptic letter to Congress that contained few details.

.

Law enforcement sources have told reporters that the emails were found on a computer that belonged to former congressman Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) and his estranged wife, Huma Abedin, who had been Clintons deputy chief of staff at the State Department. The emails surfaced during an underage sexting investigation into Weiner.

.

There is not enough information right now to know whether the new emails will lead to any other developments. It does not appear as if the FBI has yet examined them in depth, and Comey had said in the letter that the FBI cannot yet assess whether the material may or may not be significant or whether the emails contained classified information.

.

We dont know if they were addressed to and from Clinton, or if they are emails that the FBI already had reviewed in the earlier investigation into her use of a private server.

.

No charges ever have been filed in the Clinton email case; Comey has said the FBI could not find evidence of clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information. There is no way to know whether the new emails would change that. (For more, see all of our fact-checks on the Clinton email issue.)

.

.

Nick Akerman, one of the prosecutors in the Watergate case, rejected Trumps statement that the emails case is bigger than Watergate, according to mic.com political reporter Celeste Katz: Donald Trumps statement that this is bigger than Watergate is totally absurd. There is no evidence of any violation of law. For Trump to reach that conclusion based on a total lack of evidence is reminiscent of the innuendo spread by Joseph McCarthy in the early 1950s.

.

The Pinocchio Test

Trump says the Clinton email scandal is bigger than Watergate, given Comeys letter to Congress about new emails that might be relevant to the Clinton email scandal. But there is not enough information available right now to know whether these emails will make a difference in the case. Comeys letter said the FBI cannot yet assess whether the material may or may not be significant.

.

So far, there have been no criminal charges, and therefore no convictions or guilty pleas in the Clinton email scandal. That makes the Clinton emails fundamentally different from Watergate, where 48 people were found guilty. Trump earns Four more Pinocchios for this absurd comparison.
