Considering the rate at which people are flipping for Robert Mueller, it makes sense why a comparison to the infamous former White House Counsel John Dean can be drawn. After all, the shoe fits, as Dean is widely credited with helping to take Richard Nixon down in the Watergate scandal.
Interestingly enough, Dean himself must see something in all of this, as he has weighed in on what it could mean for the entire Trump family.
It all began when Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort cut a plea deal agreeing to cooperate with the Feds on all of their ongoing investigations. Shortly thereafter, John Dean chimed in on the matter via Twitter.
“Manafort has flipped! BOOM (the sound of broomsticks breaking the sound barrier crashing to earth – NO witches). The entire Trump family now in jeopardy. No pardon for Paul from Trump. No nice things to say about Manafort by Rudy. Nightmares at the White House will be unending.”
Although Dean’s prediction that the entire Trump family is in jeopardy should be considered big news based on the source, it may be preemptively bold. Truthfully, as the trials have played out, it’s become increasingly easier by the day to connect Paul Manafort’s plea deal to his participation in the infamous Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and representatives from the Russian government.
However, Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner are just two individuals and do not comprise the entire Trump family. So, was John Dean’s tweet an over-generalization, or does he know something we don’t know?
Sure, it’s widely rumored that Ivanka Trump may have participated in the Trump Organization’s Trump-Soho deal with Russian mafia money launderer Felix Sater, and that Donald Trump defrauded money from Eric’s charity, but as far as we know, the jury is still out on them.
Nevertheless, I suppose only time will tell.
