John Dean to Compare Mueller Findings to Watergate in Testimony

“What we’re seeing now is “strikingly like Watergate,” Dean said.

Former White House Counsel and Watergate star witness John Dean will be one of several attorneys and legal experts to provide testimony in a June 10 House hearing on the Mueller report.

Dean reportedly plans to provide the House Judiciary Committee with “some context,” drawing comparisons between the investigation of the Nixon administration and that of President Donald Trump. He’ll illustrate “how strikingly like Watergate what we’re seeing now, as reported in the Mueller report, is,” Dean told CNN.

In particular, Dean will focus on the obstruction of justice issue, highlighting for example the firing of then-FBI Director James Comey. Dean called the move “not dissimilar from some of the actions Nixon took,” who had ordered Attorney General Elliot Richardson to fire the independent special prosecutor Archibald Cox. Richardson refused and instead resigned.
