Louie Gohmert took his turn during the House hearing with criminal John Dean as the star. Gohmert laid into Dean for his clear attempt to tell Michael Cohen to lie to the Republicans during his hearing through Lenny Davis.
Louie Gohmert read to John Dean the New York Times claiming John Dean paid people to stay quite during his obstruction of justice crime.
Gohmert stated, “They reported that in your case, John Sirica, the judge, read the formal charges regarding the conspiracy to thwart the investigation and he read as follows: that you were suborning perjury, giving false statements, and concealing evidence in the trial before Judge Sarika last winter.”
Gohmert continued reading, “Of the men arrested in the break-in, offering clemency to the defendants, paying to keep the arrested men silent, asking the Federal Bureau of Investigation for information, attempting to get the CIA to provide money for the payments. And furtherance of the conspiracy judge Sirica continued reading, Dean had committed six overt specific overt acts on or about June 27, 1972.”
Gohmert called out the clear similarities between Nixon’s Watergate and Obama’s Russiagate. Both used spying tactics against political opponents in order to overthrow a fair election.
