Trump rips Democrats ahead of testimony from 'sleazebag' Watergate lawyer

Trump rips Democrats ahead of testimony from 'sleazebag' Watergate lawyer President Trump on Sunday 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!" ....No Obstruction. The Dems were devastated - after all this time and money spent ($40,000,000), the Mueller Report was a disaster for them.

REUTERS/Carlos Barria (Bloomberg) -- President Donald Trump, facing calls for impeachment from some Democrats, sought on Monday to draw a contrast between himself and former President Richard Nixon, who resigned in 1974 before lawmakers could remove him from office.

“He left,” Trump told reporters at the White House. “I don’t leave. Big difference. I don’t leave. We did nothing wrong except create the greatest economy in the history of our country. We did nothing wrong except rebuild our military like nobody’s ever seen before.”

Trump: John Dean's 'been a loser for many years'

Trump: John Dean's 'been a loser for many years' President Trump on Monday blasted John Dean after the former Nixon White House counsel likened the president's conduct during the Russia investigation to the Watergate scandal. "John Dean's been a loser for many years," Trump told reporters at the White House. Dean testified during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on the Mueller report, saying "the Trump administration is in fast competition with what happened in the Nixon administration." But Trump denied there are any similarities to himself and President Richard Nixon, who resigned in 1974 before Congress could impeach him.

Nixon might have survived if he had Fox News and the conservative media that exists today. Testifying before the Senate Watergate Committee, Dean said President Nixon not only knew about I don ’ t believe Trump would have done so. Only if the House impeaches and the Senate convicts and

He raised the matter “only because I went to the best colleges, or college,” he said . Referring to a new book citing concerns about his fitness, he said , “ I consider it a work of Richard M. Nixon took Valium, and during his final days advisers took precautions intended to avoid any rash orders for military action.

Trump’s comments came the same day John Dean, the former White House counsel to Nixon, testified before the House Judiciary Committee and drew comparisons between the president and his former boss. Following the testimony, Trump said “John Dean’s been a loser for many years.”

Some Democrats are pushing for impeachment proceedings linked to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and whether the president obstructed justice.

Mueller said he couldn’t reach a conclusion on whether there was obstruction and also said he found “insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy” on election interference. Some Democrats have said it’s now their responsibility to determine whether Trump acted in a way that would provide grounds for impeachment. Trump has denied any wrongdoing and said Mueller’s report on the matter exonerated him.

President Trump was so bothered by his chief of staff's coughing during an interview in the Oval Office with ABC News that he asked his top aide to leave the room. Trump was in the middle of answering a question from ABC's George Stephanopoulos about his financial records when he abruptly asked to do another take. Pres. Trump says he "might" turn over his "financial statement" to Congress.
