White House counselor Kellyanne Conway fired off on Democrats on Monday for bringing in a former Watergate “tv” attorney who was disbarred to testify on obstruction of justice.
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway slammed John Dean hours ahead of his testimony on the Mueller report, saying "they are picking lawyers from TV now."
"It's really something," Conway told Fox News on Monday. "I've never been disbarred."
Dean, a vocal Trump critic who served as White House counsel for former President Nixon, will be the central witness during Monday afternoon's House Judiciary Committee hearing on the special counsel's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Dean was intimately involved in the Watergate cover-up, pleaded guilty to obstructing justice and served four months in prison for his role. His testimony to the Senate Watergate Committee in 1973 helped lead to Nixon's resignation.
"I passed four state bars, never been disbarred," Conway continued. "Never went to jail for obstruction of justice and don't plan on it."
