US President Donald Trump commented on John Dean’s comparison of him with former US President Richard Nixon. There is one major difference, “He left, I don’t leave,” said Trump.
Dean, former Nixon White House counsel, at the House Judiciary Committee Hearing said that Trump’s and Nixon’s actions were similar and noted that Robert Mueller’s report reminded him of Watergate one. Dean was the key witness in a Watergate scandal, which made Nixon resign before impeachment proceedings could be started.
Trump claimed he was not going to resign. “You can’t impeach somebody when there’s never been anything done wrong. We have no collusion. We have no anything. There’s no obstruction, there’s no collusion, there’s no anything,” the president said. “When you look at past impeachments, whether it was President Clinton or – I guess President Nixon never got there.”
“There’s a big difference. I don’t leave.”
