The left wants you to believe that Donald Trump is the most corrupt and incorrigible President since Richard Nixon.
This has been blatantly obvious, especially over at CNN where a number of politicos involved in the Watergate scandal of the 1970’s have been paraded in front of the television cameras in order to bolster the comparison.
The democrats have shifted their arguments against Trump several times, as well, continually steering the arguments from “collusion” to “obstruction” to the bland vagaries of “corruption” over the course of the last two years.
Now, as democrats call on one Watergate personality in particular to testify in front of Congress, the GOP is ready to call out their blatant scandal-marketing schemes.
John Dean, the former White House counsel to Richard Nixon implicated in the Watergate scandal, testified Monday that he sees “remarkable parallels” between Watergate and what is in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report about President Trump — as Republicans questioned why Democrats even called him to speak on the Russia probe in the first place.
In dramatic testimony before the House Judiciary Committee, Dean, an outspoken critic of Trump, said, “I would like to address a few of the remarkable parallels I find in the Mueller Report that echo Watergate, particularly those related to obstruction of justice.”
The response from the republicans was raucous.
But Georgia GOP Rep. Doug Collins, the ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, mocked Democrats for bringing Dean in for testimony, accusing Democrats of using him to try to attack the president. “This committee is now hearing from the Seventies and they want their star witness back,” he said.
Collins mockingly added, “Let the show begin.”
Dean was seemingly on board with the plan, making numerous comparisons between Watergate and RussiaGate during his time on Capitol Hill, lending an eerie bit of showmanship to the democrats’ narrative.
