The Democrat-led House Judiciary Committee chaired by Jerry Nadler dragged out Watergate figure John Dean to testify at Monday’s hearing about Mueller’s report.
John Dean actually said in his opening statement that the last time he testified to the House Judiciary Committee was July 11th, 1974 — 45 years ago!
John Dean is also a CNN contributor. Imagine our shock.
Ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee Doug Collins (R-GA) ripped the Democrats on Monday during the hearing.
“It was brought up when one of our candidates talked about Russia being a threat, and former president Obama said the 80’s are asking for their foreign policy back. Well guess what, this committee is now hearing from the 70’s, and they want their star witness back.”
Watch Doug Collins’ entire opening statement:
The special counsel was appointed to investigate Russia. It’s time to listen to him without pretending that crimes committed by foreign governments will somehow implicate the president just because he had the audacity to win an election against the Dems’ candidate. #MuellerReport pic.twitter.com/jHvWXyyUWO

President Trump slammed the Democrats for trotting out Nixon’s former White House counsel John Dean to testify.
‘John Dean is a CNN contributor,’ Trump said in a tweet Monday afternoon.
Can’t believe they are bringing in John Dean, the disgraced Nixon White House Counsel who is a paid CNN contributor. No Collusion – No Obstruction! Democrats just want a do-over which they’ll never get!

Dean is no stranger to Deep State coups like the one attempted against President Trump.
In the 1970’s Dean was a participant in the attempt to remove Richard Nixon from the Presidency. This was all detailed in the book “Silent Coup: The Removal of the President” which discussed Dean’s actions in the coup that led to Nixon’s demise. The authors of this book were on CSPAN in 1991 to talk about their research covered in their book –
…the authors said that White House aide John Dean was responsible for the cover-up of the 1973 Watergate break-in, that General Alexander Haig was attempting to unseat President Nixon, and that General Haig was also “Deep Throat.”
Some other shocking notes from the CSPAN interview about Watergate include:
John Dean Pulled Off a Hoax –
Because John Dean pulled off an incredible hoax. He pulled it off on the Watergate Committee and he pulled it off on the courts and he pulled it off on the American people, and in a sense he erased the election. If you take John Dean out of the story, it doesn’t matter what Woodward and Haig do because it will be a series of leaks that will mean nothing. There’s no Watergate. It will be traditional Washington leaks that may nick the president a little bit, but it’s not going to drive him out of office. It is the John Dean story that is just absolutely the most important story in the book.
