Former White House Counsel, John Dean tossed shade at President Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani when asked about President Trump’s lasted actions.
President Trump has been using the term “spygate,” and Dean said it was as if he took a page out of Giuliani’s playbook.
“Well, it seems he’s got his hands on the fog machine that Rudy Giuliani has been handling. And he’s just trying to put smoke out there, and it’s not going to hold up,” Dean said.
Dean, having lived through the Watergate scandal, said he is not taking their term “spygate” seriously.
“I think the briefing today pretty well showed this was standard operating procedure by the FBI, and if anything the FBI was protecting him and not spying on him, but rather being cautious in how they proceeded, trying to see if these people even knew they were dealing with potential Russian infiltration of some kind. So the spygate term doesn’t work for me,” Dean said.
