Sunny Hostin Amazed by John Dean Comparing Trump to Nixon: ‘Exactly the Same!’

‘I think it was a good move in the sense that you don’t want the past to become prologue’


HOSTIN: “And what I loved about his testimony is he went over six parallels between the Mueller report and the Watergate investigation. One, he said the parallels were involving attempts to shut down the investigations. We know that happened with Nixon. That happened with Trump. Firing of FBI director James Comey and the Saturday Night Massacre, there’s that parallel. Dean's and former White House counsel Don McGahn's refusal to carry out the President’s orders. Efforts to control — exert control over the investigations, attempts to limit the disclosure of evidence — "

GOLDBERG: "So he’s basically saying that there are parallels here."

HOSTIN: "Six parallels. They’re exactly the same. Exactly the same."
