Now that is a real dumb question. First off he was not their witness and secondly how could the democrats be so dumb to think that a convicted felon would make a legitimate witness? It was a waste of anyone's time and money. Nadler needs to get his crap together.
and so why did all the Republicans waste time and money attacking him instead of asking the other witnesses questions ?

Former White House counsel John Dean acknowledged at the start of Monday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing that he wasn’t there as a “fact witness.” Instead, he noted in his opening statement several ways in which he sees the report of former special counsel Robert S. Mueller III echoing Watergate.

Dean didn’t run through each of those verbally during his testimony, but his written statement lays his case out in detail.

The most obvious parallel Dean noted involved himself: It concerns the role of the White House counsel. Just as he was the most significant witness against Richard M. Nixon, former White House counsel Donald McGahn has emerged as the most significant witness in the Mueller investigation. McGahn didn’t technically flip on Trump, as Dean did when he pleaded guilty in Watergate, but as Dean pointed out, “McGahn is the only witness that the special counsel expressly labels as reliable, calling McGahn ‘a credible witness with no motive to lie or exaggerate given the position he held in the White House.' "

Dean noted that the Mueller report was spurred by Russian hacks targeting the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign, just as Watergate began with a botched burglary of the DNC. The burglars also had similar plans, he pointed out, for the campaign of Nixon’s 1972 Democratic opponent, George McGovern.

As pointed out @ the 1st link, the GOP House committee members were limited in time to embarrass themselves in carrying Trump's contaminated water.

As to John Dean as a House committee witness, see more @ 2nd link.

You were saying jenniel about a real dumb question? Rep. Nadler certainly has his crap together.
