John Dean Blasts Warrantless Eavesdropping

My Way News - John Dean Blasts Warrantless Eavesdropping:
WASHINGTON (AP) - Nixon White House counselor John Dean asserted Friday that President Bush's domestic spying exceeds the wrongdoing that toppled his former boss from power, and Sen. Orrin Hatch snapped that Democrats were trying to 'score political points' with a motion to censure Bush.

'Had the Senate or House, or both, censured or somehow warned Richard Nixon, the tragedy of Watergate might have been prevented,' Dean told the Senate Judiciary Committee. 'Hopefully the Senate will not sit by while even more serious abuses unfold before it.'

Testifying to a Senate committee on Wisconsin Democratic Sen. Russell Feingold's resolution to censure Bush, Dean said the president 'needs to be told he cannot simply ignore a law with no consequences.'
And who (besides you and Feingold) is going to tell him? I guess we'll all have to come November; if we're still a democracy by then.
