Trump Claims ‘No Obstruction’ In Furious Attack On Dems, ‘Sleazebag’ Watergate Attorney John Dean
It must be hard being Donald Trump these days. His presidency has been such an inept, immoral, criminal, horrifying freak show that even Fox News is incrementally backing away from Trump as he circles the drain. Trump is noticing it, and he can’t handle it.
Trump appears to have spent the entirety of the past two days watching cable television and ranting about it on Twitter. But on Sunday, Trump descended into a delusional Twitterstorm that has been surreal even by his standards.
After attacking the media for reporting on his tariff ward debacle with Mexico, Trump ripped Democrats ahead of testimony from John Dean, a former White House counsel for President Nixon who proved pivotal during the Watergate scandal.
“The Dems were devastated – after all this time and money spent ($40,000,000), the Mueller Report was a disaster for them,” Trump tweeted Sunday evening.
“But they want a Redo, or Do Over. They are even bringing in @CNN sleazebag attorney John Dean. Sorry, no Do Overs – Go back to work!”
Dean was connected to the Watergate cover-up and delivered televised testimony before lawmakers that helped lead to Nixon’s resignation.
Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee will grill Dean on Monday in an attempt to shine a spotlight on the unsavory details about Trump’s conduct contained in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
Dean argues the president engaged in obstruction based on what is described in Mueller’s report.
While Mueller’s team did not make a judgement on obstruction of justice, they listed 10 cases of it.
Democrats have argued Mueller found substantial evidence that Trump obstructed justice and have taken the special counsel’s public statements on May 29 as a green light to further investigate the president’s conduct.
Democrats have said they hope Dean will be able to provide firsthand expertise on obstruction of justice and to compare Trump’s conduct with Nixon’s.
Trump has frequently painted Democrats as trying to defame him ahead of the 2020 reelection, saying that Mueller’s report made it clear that there was “no collusion, no obstruction.”

….No Obstruction. The Dems were devastated – after all this time and money spent ($40,000,000), the Mueller Report was a disaster for them. But they want a Redo, or Do Over. They are even bringing in @CNN sleazebag attorney John Dean. Sorry, no Do Overs – Go back to work!
