Christie: ‘John Dean Who Was Helping Richard Nixon Coordinate the Cover-Up’

‘John Dean coordinated the cover-up; John Dean authorized the paying of the folks to keep them quiet’


CHRISTIE: "No, I don’t think he is because I think at bottom he believes that he didn’t do anything wrong and that by doing these things, taking this executive action, that he’s authorized to do under the Constitution. But going back to the McGahn thing for a minute, what Matthew said, there’s an important distinction to make. You know, let’s not lionize John Dean, OK? John Dean coordinated the cover-up. John Dean authorized the paying of the folks to keep them quiet. And then when John Dean was about to get caught, then all of a sudden he held someone to account."
