(FILES) In this file photo taken on August 09, 1974, the 37th President of the United States, Richard Nixon, bids farewell to the White House staff. At left is his son-in-law David Eisenhower (US President Dwight Eisenhower’s grandson) who is married to his daughter Julie, hidden behind the President. – A sprawling conspiracy, a cornered president clinging to power, a White House cover-up: for Watergate prosecutor Jill Wine-Banks the mushrooming controversy around Donald Trump’s alleged plot to take down US democracy is a movie she’s seen before. It is 50 years to the day since five burglars were arrested at the Democratic National Committee headquarters at the Watergate complex in Washington — touching off a firestorm that would go on to bring down president Richard Nixon. The break-in plunged Wine-Banks when she was barely out of her 20s into a starring role in perhaps the most enduring political scandal in history, as the only woman on the Watergate prosecution team.
