President Trump attacked Watergate figure John Dean on Twitter on Sunday evening, calling the former Nixon White House counsel a “sleazebag” as Dean prepares to testify in front of the Democratic-led House Judiciary Committee on Monday.

Over the weekend, Dean, who was President Richard Nixon’s White House counsel from July 1970 to April 1973 and was later jailed, had tweeted “would someone get Trump a dog” saying that Trump “needs a friend so he won’t endlessly vent on Twitter.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Dean, 80, was embroiled in the Watergate scandal during the early 1970’s but turned on his co-conspirators in exchange for a plea deal and a short prison stint.

Considered by some to be the “hero of Watergate” and by others to be a shameless opportunist, the man known by the FBI as “the master manipulator of the cover-up” has spent the subsequent decades calling scandals in the administrations of Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, and Donald Trump worse than Watergate.
