Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) ripped convicted felon and CNN contributor John Dean on Monday during a hearing in front of the House Judiciary Committee, suggesting that Dean has made a career and has financially benefited from accusing Republican presidents of committing crimes.Gaetz opened his aggressive line of questioning by noting that Dean, who was convicted of obstruction of justice during the Watergate scandal, has written books since the scandal about how incidents in Republican administrations were “worse than Watergate.”

“Mr. Dean, how many American presidents have you accused of being Richard Nixon?” Gaetz asked.

“I actually wrote a book about Mr. Bush and Mr. Cheney, with the title ‘Worse Than Watergate,'” Dean responded.

“Did you make money on that book?” Gaetz responded.

“It was a very successful book,” Dean responded.

“How much money did you make?” Gaetz pressed.

“I have no idea,” Dean said.

“More than a million bucks?” Gaetz asked.

“No,” Dean replied.

“More than half a million bucks?” Gaetz continued.

“I said I don’t have any idea,” Dean replied.

“How much money do you make from CNN?” Gaetz asked.

“Eh— I don’t really know exactly,” Dean responded.

Democrat Chairman Jerry Nadler cut off Gaetz and refused to allow him to continue with his line of questioning.

“Mr. Dean has made a cottage industry out of accusing presidents of acting like Richard Nixon,” Gaetz said to Nadler. “I would like to know how much money he makes based on making these accusations and exploiting them for his own economic benefit and you’re saying that’s out of line?”

Dean was not the only contributor from a far-left network to appear at the hearing as MSNBC contributors and Obama donors Barbara McQuade and Joyce White Vance also were present and made multiple negative remarks about the president.

WATCH:

President Donald Trump tweeted at the start of the hearing: “Can’t believe they are bringing in John Dean, the disgraced Nixon White House Counsel who is a paid CNN contributor. No Collusion – No Obstruction! Democrats just want a do-over which they’ll never get!”

    Conservative media should post a video of Jim Jordan reading out John Dean’s crimes and complicit behavior in the Watergate break-in plus his conviction and admission of crimes and following pardon thereof. John Dean is a pile of garbage. A convicted liar and admitted perjurer. He should be charged again for obstruction of justice for his comments directing the Justice Department as a contributor on MSNBC and Twitter against a sitting president. John Dean had nothing to do with any of this and now he has put his ass back on the fire again. How stupid is this man?!
    However much money he made from his past books of the crimes he committed against the United States government and citizens, President Trump should sue him and take it away from him for slander and liable.
