Uh, yeah. That's the same.
1) Leaking to the press that the President and other high level officials were involved in illegal activities, leading to an official investigation of the charges.
2) Leaking wire taps to the press that revealed the President committing no illegal activity (immoral, maybe, but certainly not illegal), leading to a ridiculous attempt to impeach said President, thus distracting the country from real work and making us the laughing stock of the world.
Yeah. Seriously. That's the same thing.
