The Latest: John Dean to compare Mueller, Watergate probes
Former White House counsel and Watergate star witness John Dean says he’ll be providing a House panel “some context” and comparison between investigations during President Richard Nixon’s administration and that of President Donald Trump.
Dean cooperated with prosecutors and helped bring down Nixon’s presidency. He told CNN he’ll tell the House Judiciary Committee on Monday “how strikingly like Watergate what we’re seeing now, as reported in the Mueller report, is.”
Dean says he’ll focus on the question of obstruction of justice in his testimony.
