Missouri senator says it's a waste of time to study history because it was a long time ago

Sen. Josh Hawley says not to compare Trump's behavior to Nixon's because Watergate was more than 40 years ago.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO), a fierce defender of President Donald Trump, is very upset that the House Judiciary Committee will hear testimony from a Watergate-era figure on Monday about presidential obstruction. His reasoning: Watergate happened a long time ago.

John Dean, who was White House counsel for President Richard Nixon in the 1970s, will testify before the panel as part of a hearing entitled “Lessons from the Mueller Report: Presidential Obstruction and Other Crimes.” In 1974, the same committee approved articles of impeachment against Nixon alleging obstruction of justice. (Nixon resigned before the full House of Representatives could vote on impeachment.)

In his final report on Russian interference, which was made public in April following a nearly two-year long investigation, special counsel Robert Mueller documented at least 10 instances involving President Donald Trump which may have constituted obstruction. Though he did not refer any indictments against the president, Mueller effectively handed the reins over to Congress to take the next step — widely accepted to be impeachment proceedings.

Rather than learning from history, however, Hawley, 39, thinks it would be better to simply ignore it.

See how well his cult followers like that logic!
