John Dean slammed Trump for drawing parallels between the Watergate crisis and the FBI's Mar-a-Lago raid.

Former president Donald Trump's comparison of the FBI's search of his Mar-a-Lago resort to Richard Nixon's 1972 controversy has drawn criticism from Watergate leaker John Dean.

"It's pitiful. It demonstrates that he is ignorant of what transpired during Watergate "Wolf Blitzer of CNN asked Dean about it on Thursday night.

"Of course, Watergate was much more than a robbery. A cover-up occurred, and it actually revealed the proof of Nixon's misuse of power "Added he.

Dean criticized Trump's attacks on the FBI and the Department of Justice and compared them to Nixon's response to Watergate, which led to his demise.

"Nixon believed in institutions. He wouldn't make the same brazen and ignorant attacks on the FBI or Department of Justice that Trump does. They were folks he knew "Dean said
