Trump calls John Dean a 'sleazebag' ahead of testimony

Trump calls John Dean a 'sleazebag' ahead of testimony”

President Donald Trump lashed out at former Nixon White House counsel John Dean III, calling him a "sleazebag" ahead of his planned appearance at a House hearing Monday on the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller. He said all members of the committee will be able to view them.

At the same time, Nadler said he will hold off on a threat to bring criminal contempt charges against U.S. Attorney General William Barr. He had for weeks resisted a subpoena from Nadler's committee to provide a full, unredacted version of Mueller's 448-page final report and certain underlying evidence.

Nadler said a lawsuit may yet be necessary. "If important information is held back, then we will have no choice but to enforce our subpoena in court and consider other remedies", he said in a statement.

ABC News has reached out to the Justice Department for comment. Trump tweeted of congressional Democrats.

Released in mid-April, Mueller's report found Russia meddled in the 2016 US presidential election and that Trump's election campaign had multiple contacts with Russian officials.

The Mueller report plainly stated that the special counsel found evidence of presidential-level obstruction: Trump tried on multiple occasions and through multiple aides to hinder, limit and even end the probe. Trump argued Democrats' hearings amount to an effort to "do-over" the Mueller report.

A growing number of Democrats have called for launching an impeachment inquiry against Trump, while House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has continued to counsel a more deliberate course.

Jerry Nadler of NY, said on Monday he has reached a deal with the Department of Justice about turning over evidence from special counsel Robert Mueller's report relating to possible obstruction of justice by President Donald Trump.

Dean's testimony kicks off what could be a dramatic week related to oversight of the Russian Federation probe: While House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler announced plans Monday to hit pause on efforts to hold Attorney General Bill Barr in contempt over his refusal to turn over Russian Federation probe-related documents, Democrats could still move forward on a separate contempt-related resolution this week to enforce subpoenas for Barr and former White House Counsel Don McGahn.

Congressional Democrats will take multiple steps Monday aimed at holding the Trump administration accountable for actions related to the Russian Federation investigation, turning to a key figure in the downfall of former President Richard Nixon 45 years ago. John Dean, a key figure in the Watergate scandal that toppled former President Richard Nixon, is scheduled to testify.

He became a household name during the Watergate era, when as White House counsel he agreed to help prosecutors.
