“I think that’s a lot of testimony, that’s a lot of visiting, and that’s just the bottom of what they know,” Dean said Monday in an interview on CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper.” “It could well have been much more than that. It appears to have been ongoing. So, I think Trump has got a real problem here. And I’m not sure how he’s going to handle it.”
Dean is known for his cooperation with prosecutors during the Watergate investigation after serving as White House counsel for Nixon.
“I don’t think we ought to prejudge what he did or did not do until we know what that is,” Dean noted.
“It’s incriminating sometimes just to provide a timeline, which he was in a position to do,” Dean said. “It could be incriminating to explain what was happening that didn’t appear to be wrongdoing, but when you put it in the larger picture it completes part of a puzzle that prosecutors couldn’t get elsewhere.”
