You can’t make this stuff up. Of all the people in all the world John Dean?

I lived through John Dean.

Here’s how John Dean did on his first job out of law school.

After graduation, Dean joined Welch & Morgan, a law firm in Washington, D.C., where he was soon accused of conflict of interest violations and fired.[13] He was alleged to have started negotiating his own private deal for a TV station broadcast license, after his firm had assigned him to complete the same task for a client of theirs.[14]


House Republicans lined up to hammer John Dean, the Democrats’ star witness at Monday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing, saying the Nixon White House counsel deliberately obstructed their questioning of former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen earlier this year, and pointing out that he has breathlessly accused numerous Republican presidents of Watergate-like misconduct over the years.

Next to Nixon, John Dean , was the most detested man in American from Watergate. Up to his ears in the cover up, Dean turned states evidence and testified against all the others who were involved for a modest prison sentence of one year in a country club prison. Americans don’t like rats and weasels are worse.

Today he sits with his fellow weasels trying to avoid prison for the taping of the Trump Campaign Headquarters which William Barr has already acknowledged was a crime similar to Watergate but worse. Those involved in that are quaking knowing full well there are several John Dean’s in that mess just waiting to cut a John Dean deal.

How do the Democrats respond to all this. They dust off the rat of all rats to suggest he knows a Watergate when he sees one.

This from Fox News:

 At one point, the hearing room broke out into laughter, as Florida Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz grilled Dean for turning Nixon comparisons into a profitable “cottage industry” for himself. Dean assisted with the Watergate coverup and pleaded guilty to obstruction before becoming a key prosecution witness, and President Trump has called him as a “sleazebag” and a “RAT.”

Gaetz began by referencing Dean’s 2005 essay, “George W. Bush as the New Richard M. Nixon: Both Wiretapped Illegally, and Impeachably; Both Claimed That a President May Violate Congress’ Laws to Protect National Security.” Dean, in 1987, had also called the Iran-Contra affair “Major League” for Ronald Reagan, compared to the relatively “minor league” scandal of Watergate.

“Mr. Dean, how many American presidents have you accused of being Richard Nixon?” Gaetz asked.

“I actually wrote a book about Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney with the title, ‘Worse than Watergate,’ Dean responded, prompting loud laughter from those in attendance. Asked whether he made money on the book, Dean replied that it was “very successful,” but declined to state how much he made exactly, other than that it was less than $1 million.


Dean also said he is unsure how much money he makes as a CNN contributor, where he frequently attacks the Trump administration. (Late Saturday, Dean escalated his personal attacks on Trump, tweeting: “Would someone get Trump a dog. He needs a friend so he won’t endlessly vent on Twitter. He’s uninterested in government and policy. He doesn’t read. He doesn’t exercise. He has no real friends. A dog might save humankind. Admittedly, it a lot to ask of a dog. But help is needed.”)

In another dramatic moment, Ohio Republican Rep. Jim Jordan pressed Dean on his conversations with Cohen attorney Lanny Davis, saying Dean collaborated with Davis to “obstruct” Republicans’ questioning of Cohen in February.

“Did you give advice to Lanny Davis or Michael Cohen prior to Mr. Cohen’s testimony to Congress?” Jordan asked.

“No,” Dean responded.

“Well, you said on [CNN anchor] Erin Burnett’s show the night before Mr. Cohen testified in front of the Oversight Committee … that you had talked to Lanny Davis and that Michael Cohen should hold his testimony as long as possible from Republicans. You didn’t say that to Mr. Davis? You said it on Erin Burnett’s show the night before Mr. Cohen testified.”

“I didn’t say it directly to Mr. Cohen,” Dean responded. He then acknowledged, “I did say, as soon as you turn your testimony over, it will be picked apart.”
