Former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova blasted House Democrats for having John Dean serve as witness at the start of three days of sessions by the House Judiciary Committee aimed at focusing on the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
The comments by diGenova came in a column posted Tuesday by Fox News.

“John Dean? Really? If this was a Dickens story, John Dean would be playing the Spirit of Scandals Past, the forlorn and decrepit old spirit carted out to warn others,” diGenova said. “But his warnings are no more than craven fodder for the Spirit of Scandals Present, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler.
“Why don’t the Democrats just admit they were wrong about collusion and move on rather than continuing to embarrass themselves?
Dean, who was White House counsel during Richard Nixon’s administration and a star witness during Watergate, testified Monday that Mueller has provided Congress with a “road map” for investigating President Donald Trump.
But diGenova asked why Democrats would have this “discredited buffoon” to testify in the first place.
“Obviously, Nadler called Dean to testify because he wants to use the 45-year-old stench of Watergate to revive a partisan conspiracy theory that President Trump committed criminal offenses, which was already decisively debunked in the Mueller report,” he said.
“The only purpose of these hearings is to keep the most sinister-sounding aspects of the Mueller report in front of the public until the 2020 election.”
