Donald Trump is not the first "law and order" president.

Richard Nixon claimed to be in 1968.

So did presidential candidate and segregationist Alabama governor George Wallace.

Nixon was, as history documents, one of the least lawful, if not the most unlawful, president in modern history.

Nearing the end of his first (and hopefully last) term, Donald Trump seems to be competing for that title.

He's winning.

Three presidents top the criminal indictment list--all Republicans.

During the six years of the Nixon administration, 76 administration officials were indicted.

During Ronald Reagan's two terms, 26.

But Trump--not even finished with his first term--leads with 215.

Here are some of the most noteworthy:

Under the three most recent Democratic presidents, there have only been a total of three indictments--one under Jimmy Carter, two under Bill Clinton.

Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, had zero.
