On Monday, Republican lawmaker Jim Jordan held nothing back as he called out Watergate figure, CNN contributor, and convicted felon John Dean, during Dean’s testimony before the House.
Though Democrats sought to use Dean as a means to attack President Trump, Jordan called into question his credibility during a scathing hearing.
Additionally, Jordan brought up the issue of Dean’s anti-Trump tweets, while pointedly asking “yes or no” questions to the notoriously slippery Dean.

Conservatives agreed with Jordan, and took to social media to share their thoughts on Democrats using such a witness.
Jim Jordan was justifiably savage to this clown of a witness.

In what universe is a man convicted of obstruction of justice a credible witness? He is not, in my opinion.

Boom 💥 Jim Jordan is amazing! I didn’t even know this Dean guy plead guilty to obstruction. That’s their star witness 😂

The F.B.I. nicknamed him the “secret mastermind of the conspiracy” of WATERGATE!! How can he possibly be a credible witness? He is more like a liability. If he’d been previously associated with the dems they should be trying to hide him not feature him.

He wasn’t credible 50 years ago. His wife was hot back in the day though.
