Default Watergate figure John Dean front-and-center as Dems prepare hearings on obstruction,

Just when it appeared the Democrat majority in the House judiciary committee couldn't turn it into more of a partisan circus they invite Watergate conspirator turned informant turned CNN contributor to give his opinion of parallels between the Trump administration and Watergate. Dean has no expertise on the Trump administration or special information information to impart, just his opinion. Moreover, there is no legislative or oversight purpose for Dean's appearance it's a partisan political stunt.

Quote:
Dean's dramatic appearance before the House Judiciary Committee, in particular, could create a spectacle not unlike the May hearing before the panel, in which Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., showed up with a bucket of fried chicken and a ceramic chicken statue Thursday to mock an absent Barr. In a March op-ed in The New York Times, Dean made clear his thoughts on the Trump, whom he called an "authoritarian president," in no uncertain terms.

"In fact, all Americans are affected by the growing authoritarianism that made Mr. Trump president," Dean wrote. "These people who facilitated his rise will remain long after Mr. Trump is gone. We need to pay more attention."
The fried chicken side show wasn't enough to slake the rabid hatred for Trump. According to Dean getting rid of Trump is not enough, the purge must be extended to all who put him in power. Certainly that great leap forward deserves an airing in the House.

Ever the self promoter Dean reaffirmed his hatred for Trump in a recent tweet.

Quote:
Late Saturday, Dean escalated his personal attacks, tweeting: "Would someone get Trump a dog. He needs a friend so he wonít endlessly vent on Twitter. Heís uninterested in government and policy. He doesnít read. He doesnít exercise. He has no real friends. A dog might save humankind. Admittedly, it a lot to ask of a dog. But help is needed."
Who could question Dean the self appointed defender of mankind from the scourge of Trump taking up time in the House judiciary committee. It's not like they have important issues like reforming asylum laws to deal with.

A classic example of how far down the rat hole the left has gone in the quest to find something, anything, to prove Trump bad.

Four investigations have cleared the president of the original Russian Collusion charges, and therefore without a crime there is no obstruction. Dean is a rat from Watergate/Nixon. Convicted of felonious perjury and this is the best Nadler can do?

It is no longer about doing what is best for the country. It is just about keeping IMPEACHMENT in the headlines.

The seriousness of the charges warrant an investigation. There have been four. All came up with an empty bag. Snipe hunts are like that.

The bag is not empty. It’s full of the darkest crap we’ve seen since Watergate, but you people have chosen to place your loyalty to one man over your loyalty to the country and its institutions.

That's what Nadler and Schiff keep saying. They have seen the proof. But they never open the bag and show the rest of us. Unlike you, we would like to SEE the evidence promised to prove the crime that, so far, no one can illustrate or name.

In other words, you are repeating the big lie. No one has SEEN anything. Including you.

Jesus Christ, I donít know how many times I need to say it, but just read the damn report. Even the redacted version identifies a laundry list of abuses of power and public trust by Trump.

Leave God out of this. In point of fact no one knows how many times you have told us to READ the report and we will see the light. We gun toting bible hugging knuckle draggers don't see what you see. We all get our glasses at the Wal-Mart and apparently cannot see sh!t. Got it?

How many times must we ask YOU to explain as to WTF you are referring?

Name the frigging crimes, that were committed, of which Robert Mueller said there was insufficient evidence to prove.
