Rep. Jim Jordan said on Tuesday that Democrats are aiming to "get the president" through deposition, not helping the country, by calling John Dean & # 39; s upcoming testimony their "opening act."
Democrats from the House Judicial Committee announced on Monday that they would call Dean, former White House adviser to Richard Nixon and a key figure in the Watergate scandal, to testify on 10 June as they continue to pay attention to the Mueller report.
Responding to "Fox News @ Night," Jordan, R-Ohio, said the move appears to be the opening salvo from Democrats to settlement procedures, explaining that several Democratic committee chairmen have "memoranda of understanding" on how they are "coordinating" their efforts Trump.

Jordan said he still has questions to ask former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, but it is up to Jerry Nadler, judge of the government committee, whether Mueller will testify before the committee.
"I think America has one central question for him: when did you learn, when did you know there was actually no collusion? That was the central focus of what your special advisory research was about," he said, arguing the Mueller. research spent $ 30 million in an attempt to find obstruction of justice.

He said that if Mueller and 19 Democrat lawyers in particular were able to record the obstruction of the law, they would have made that clear in the report, but instead they rejected it.
"Remember, [FBI staff] Peter Strzok and Lisa Page were also members of his team in the beginning. [Mueller] had to step down when their prejudice was discovered … The Democrats don't want to leave this alone. They keep pushing because their focus is on getting the president and not on helping the country, "he said.
