John Dean and Daniel Ellsberg Interview 2006
In a Democracy Now! broadcast exclusive are two figures who played central roles in the fall of President Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal of a generation ago, John Dean and Daniel Ellsberg. Dean served as President Nixon’s chief counsel. He exposed the government-sanctioned break-in of the psychiatrist of Daniel Ellsberg, the government analyst who leaked the Pentagon Papers and earned himself a spot on Nixon’s enemy list. Dean and Ellsberg discuss Watergate and the abuse of presidential power from Nixon to Bush.
Interviewed by Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzalez
