In case you were wondering if the Democrats were going to take their role in the House seriously, here’s your answer.
Now that the Mueller Report failed to deliver the smoking gun they hoped for (no matter how their spin doctors try to claim otherwise) the Democrats are now the process of using the levers of their power in an extended campaign to undercut Trump by the only means they have left — innuendo.
The Democrats can’t call on some of their favorites like Avenatti or Michael Cohen — because of obvious legal troubles of their own — the cranked up the Wayback machine and came up with a relic of the past.
In case you’re not old enough to remember Watergate — and many of us aren’t — here’s who we’re talking about:
John Dean was President Richard Nixon’s loyal flunky until the Watergate prosecutors got the goods on him. He then flipped, testifying against other conspirators before heading off to prison for his own crimes.
Some wizard thought it would be a great plan to dredge up a man long ago disbarred and successfully charged for his active involvement in obstructing justice during Watergate, the scandal for which all others were named.
Because he’s made a living thereafter selling books calling Republican scandals since then ‘as Bad as Watergate’. He’s a one-trick pony, but his one trick is exactly the one trick Nadler wants — needs(?) — him to play.
Matt Gaetz saw right through the drama, calling it out for what it really was:

“You’re here as a prop. You’re functionally here as a prop because they can’t impeach Donald Trump”: Hand it to Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) for cutting to the heart of John Dean’s testimony Monday before the House Judiciary Committee.
There are some fantastic quips in there: ‘Ghost of Christmas Past’ and ‘our own version of That 70’s Show’, but there is some serious substance too.
Like the part about 70% of Democrats wanting something (Impeachment) that 60% of Americans DON’T want.
Like the part about him knowing ZERO facts about the Muller report despite being the first witness in a hearing called ‘Lessons From The Mueller Report’
He wasn’t the only one to give this ‘star witness’ a rough ride, either.

This is the best they can do?
Better men than him have tried to kneecap the President — and have failed.
