During a typical tirade against House Democrats on Sunday evening, President Trump took aim at a new character: the former White House counsel under President Richard Nixon.

John Dean is set to testify during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Monday afternoon as part of a series of panels discussing the findings of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report. The hearings come as Democrats grapple with moving forward on impeachment.

Trump slammed Dean as a “CNN sleazebag attorney” and scolded Democrats for wanting a “Redo, or Do Over.”
