The usual "I'm a Republican who hates Republicans" guy...

Quote:
John Wesley Dean III (born October 14, 1938) is a former attorney who served as White House Counsel for United States President Richard Nixon from July 1970 until April 1973. Dean is known for his role in the cover-up of the Watergate scandal and his subsequent testimony to Congress as a witness. His guilty plea to a single felony in exchange for becoming a key witness for the prosecution ultimately resulted in a reduced sentence, which he served at Fort Holabird outside Baltimore, Maryland. After his plea, he was disbarred as an attorney. According to the FBI, Dean was the "master manipulator" of the Watergate affair.

Shortly after the Watergate hearings, Dean wrote about his experiences in a series of books and toured the United States to lecture. He later became a commentator on contemporary politics, a book author, and a columnist for FindLaw's Writ.

Dean had originally been a proponent of Goldwater conservatism, but he later became a critic of the Republican Party. Dean has been particularly critical of the party's support of Presidents George W. Bush and Donald Trump, and of neoconservatism, strong executive power, mass surveillance, and the Iraq War.

Funniest thing, Dean is mute about Hillary felonious conduct and the Obama administration's corruption of the Federal government to sabotage his successor. But hey, it's only "authoritarian" if it's a Republican.

Hillary escaped punishment only because FBI director created a unique definition of intent and cooped the role of the DOJ to declare her "not prosecutable". Comey admitted there was plenty of evidence of illegal activity but the would be President wasn't capable of forming the requisite intent.

There is so much evidence of the Obama administration conspiring to undermine Trump it's absurd to deny it.
