John Dean, a former White House counsel for President Richard Nixon, warned on Friday that President Donald Trump’s entire family could be facing legal scrutiny after former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort agreed to cooperate as part of a plea deal with prosecutors in the probe led by special counsel Robert Mueller.
“Manafort has flipped!” Dean wrote on Twitter.
“The entire Trump family now in jeopardy,” he added.
Manafort on Friday pleaded guilty to two charges from Mueller’s probe and also agreed to cooperate “fully and truthfully” with the special counsel’s investigation.
Manafort has flipped! BOOM (the sound of broomsticks breaking the sound barrier crashing to earth – NO witches). The entire Trump family now in jeopardy. No pardon for Paul from Trump. No nice things to say about Mansfort by Rudy. Nightmares at the White House will be unending.
