John Dean, who helped bring down the Nixon presidency, testified before the House judiciary committee

John Dean, a star witness during Watergate who helped bring down the Nixon presidency, testified Monday that the special counsel Robert Mueller has provided Congress with a “road map” for investigating Donald Trump.

He told the House judiciary committee he saw parallels between Mueller’s findings and those of congressional investigators looking into Richard Nixon’s administration decades ago. He pointed to the way the presidents used their pardon power in an attempt to influence witness testimony, and their efforts to seize control of investigations and direct the efforts of prosecutors. Dean also said that he believed the Mueller report showed “evidence of collusion, by the way”.
