I know it was expressed on here many times that the real purpose of the Mueller investigation was to get to the bottom of Russian interference in our election and to prevent it from happening again.  It wasn’t at all about getting Trump.

Anyone know when the hearings regarding Russian interference are scheduled for?  

It's also important to mention that the Senate won't engage in any debate on the subject of securing out elections and won't consider the legislation passed by the House. McConnell must have some personal reasons for wanting to allow Russia continued unfettered access to our social media and election processes. Even so, the Senate intelligence committee understands that Russia worked hard to get Trump elected, even if Trump lies and denies it.

It seems I’m not the only one who “proudly posts incorrect analysis”:

“The Senate cleared legislation on Monday night to block individuals who meddle in U.S. elections from being able to enter the United States.”

From same article:

“Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said from the Senate floor earlier Monday that Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) had agreed to an all-members briefing on election security as lawmakers warn of the need to bolster election infrastructure ahead of the 2020 election.”

It would seem obvious to most, the relevance of John Dean.

And Mr. Dean has spoken out a number times, during the Trump debacle.

 

I don’t know much about him, but he very sounds credible:

“John Dean is a convicted felon, sentenced to a prison term of one-to-four-years, and disbarred from the practice of law for the past 45 years – but he remains a media hero, the toast of the liberal Eastern Establishment, because he changed his story of what had happened to save himself and to sink his former colleagues. Fact is, the ugly truth about John Dean is far different from what the American people have been led to believe.”

Incorrect analysis?

He agreed to a briefing.  I will apologize when McConnell allows Senate debate.

Gosh, that was an interesting opinion. The author worked in Nixon's administration. 

 Nixon's impeachment and Watergate were dinner table conversation in my house when I was a teen. There were several famous names, Dean's was one. I don't know about "hero" status, but there is value in reviewing what Nixon tried to do and Dean had a front row view of the play.

I remember hearing on the radio that White House Counsel John Dean had admitted his part in the cover-up of the break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters in order to protect the president. 

He later testified against the President about the conspiracy and about the secret tapes. After that he plead guilty to obstruction of justice for his early actions in the cover-up and spent four months in prison for his role in the cover-up. He was also disbarred.

Many believe that is John Dean had not finally told the truth those criminals may have gotten away with their crimes.

The comparisons to Watergate are amusing.  Some seem to have forgotten, that with Watergate, there actually was a underlying crime to be covered up.

John Dean is at least as credible as Trump. 

He is actually more credible than Trump, as he admitted his wrongdoings, and paid for his crimes.

Dean obviously isn't amoral, as Trump.

New Accusations by a Nixon Apologist Based on Recently Discovered Information Regarding the Watergate Cover-Up Trial

By JOHN DEAN 23 AUG 2013 
 I am never surprised by Geoff Shepard’s work, only that anyone takes it seriously, which in this instance appears to have happened because it was published by The Atlantic, which legitimized it.  For those who are unaware, Shepard is an “all-we-think-we-know-about-Watergate-is-wrong” revisionist.  With a straight face, he claims that Watergate was actually a secret plot to make Teddy Kennedy president.  He is a true Nixon apologist...

Your comment made me decide to go looking for info about John Dean.  I came across an article from the NYT in 1973 that has a lot of detail.  

At that time, I was still in high school.  I remember the events but not the details. 

It was an interesting look back.
