Key Watergate Figure Revealed The Massive Legal “Trap” That Donald Trump May Have Accidentally Set For Himself


603 points

Former President Donald Trump announced that he had launched class-action lawsuits against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. Trump isn’t taking being deplatformed very well after he incited the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection. And I’m pretty sure Trump knows the lawsuits won’t go anywhere. He immediately started fundraising after the announcement, so there’s that.

John Dean, a key Watergate figure that helped bring down former President Richard Nixon, weighed in to say that Donald Trump just created a huge trap for himself with his latest court filings against Twitter, Facebook, and Google.

Dean was responding to former cable news host Keith Olbermann who tweeted that the lawsuit could result in Trump having to testify about his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol.

Dean tweeted that Trump set himself up.

As I said, Trump is fundraising off of his announcement.

George Conway, an attorney, agrees on how ridiculously stupid Trump’s lawsuit is.

It’s just another grift; that’s all this is. And for attention. The former guy needs a constant supply of attention.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
