John Dean, the former White House counsel to Richard Nixon and a key figure in the Watergate scandal whom President Trump called a “sleazebag” on Sunday, was front and center on Capitol Hill on Monday, as House Democrats began a series of hearings this week seeking to keep the spotlight on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
Dean, a star witness during Watergate who helped bring down the Nixon presidency, testified Monday that special counsel Robert Mueller has provided Congress with a “road map” for investigating President Trump.
Fox News Talk’s Guy Benson spoke to Fox News Contributor Ken W. Starr who said the Democrats stunt was a “colossal exercise of bad judgement”.
Mr. Starr, who led the investigation that resulted in impeachment proceedings being initiated against former President Bill Clinton, went on to say that Robert Mueller should testify publicly. When asked by Benson if he supports Mueller being subpoenaed and compel testimony if he doesn’t do it on his own Starr said “yes”, although he feels once the committee tells Mueller that the nation needs his testimony a subpoena won’t be necessary.
