On Tuesday, Watergate attorney John Dean said that time is no longer on President Donald Trump’s side. Multiple Trump lead organizations are being investigated.
“After a lifetime of escaping the rules that really apply to everybody else, they now do apply to him, and he is going to feel the brunt of the law. This is going to be the way his career may be ended,” Dean said to CNN’s Don Lemon.
He also called White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders “pathetic” for refusing to change her stance on Trump’s former National Security Adviser, Michael Flynn being ambushed by the FBI.
“Is she making things better for Flynn?” Lemon asked.
“It’s like she doesn’t pay attention to what is really happening out in the world,” Dean said. “She was maybe unaware of what happened in the courtroom, but she’s not making things better for not only the White House and the president but for Michael Flynn. Sarah Sanders did not help at all today. ”

During an appearance on the network, Katyal said he disagreed with analysis saying that Trump should view the 7-2 SCOTUS ruling as a mixed bag, since it gave him the opportunity to continue fighting subpoenas even as it denied his ability to dismiss them outright.

Biden beats Trump to the punch with massive ‘Buy American’ spending package — and GOP allies are fuming
Some of President Donald Trump's "economic nationalist" allies are furious that Joe Biden beat the White House to the punch with a "Buy American" policy push.
The president's former chief strategist Steve Bannon told the Washington Post's Jeff Stein that Biden's $300 billion domestic spending proposal was "very smart," and said the likely Democratic nominee had scored a win.
"The campaign and White House have been caught flat-footed," Bannon said. "Biden has very smart people around him, particularly on the economic side."
