CMC: John Dean: The Legacy of Watergate

August 14 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

community discussions

Ohio native John Dean became a household name in the 1970s as the White House Counsel who participated in the infamous Watergate scandal that rocked the United States. Dean served as a witness for the prosecutors of the break-in and cover-up and ultimately testified before the Senate Watergate Committee, after pleading guilty to obstruction of justice charges.

In his post-White House career, Dean became an investment banker and author, writing eleven books about Watergate and Republican politics including Worse than Watergate and Conservatives without Conscience.

Dean’s name has been in the news a great deal in 2019, culminating in June with his appearance before the House Judiciary Committee where he testified about the implications of the Mueller Report.

John Dean, along with collaborator James Robenalt (Partner at Thompson Hine LLP and author of January 1973: Watergate, Roe V. Wade, Vietnam, and the Month That Changed America Forever), will talk about the legacy of Watergate and share his perspective on current events.
