This week, Democrats in the House Judiciary Committee brought in John Dean of Watergate fame to testify about the Russian collusion story. It had many, even in progressive mainstream media, scratching their heads wondering what Dean could possibly contribute to the conversation or investigation.
But that’s not how Democrats think, at least in the House of Representatives. They aren’t looking for facts. They’re looking for anything they can do to perpetuate their narrative and keep the Russia collusion hoax in the news cycle so they don’t have to answer tough questions about real issues facing Americans like illegal immigration.
Two former Congressmen, Trey Gowdy and Jason Chaffetz, spoke at length about the debacle of this hearing.
Chaffetz was amused. “When you bring up two convicted felons, Michael Cohen and John Dean, as the way you’re going to propel this, I don’t know how Democrats with a straight face look in the camera say, ‘Oh ya, we’re trying to get to the bottom to do the work of the American people.'”
Gowdy, on the other hand, was infuriated by the display of clear partisan brinkmanship. After praising Chaffetz for his ability when on Capitol Hill to talk to the press, Gowdy pointed at an inconvenient fact about the way the media in America works.
“I hope even you have realized, now, the duplicity and the relativism with which Republicans are covered versus Democrats,” Gowdy said. “If you, as the Chairman of Oversight, had called someone like John Dean who’s not a fact witness, we’s not a legal expert… about the best he can give you is a day in the life in federal prison, that’s the best he’s going to be able to give you, you would have been excoriated.”
Putting John Dean in front of a camera had one goal for the Democrats: associate the Russia hoax with Watergate. They’re grasping at straws now, but it should be expected since Mueller is all they have left.
