John Wesley Dean III (born October 14, 1938) was White House Counsel to U.S.       
President Richard Nixon from July 1970 until April 1973. As White House Counsel,   
he became deeply involved in events leading up to the Watergate burglaries and     
the subsequent Watergate scandal cover up, even referred to as "master             
manipulator of the cover up" by the FBI.[1] He was convicted of multiple           
felonies as a result of Watergate, and went on to become a key witness for the     
prosecution, resulting in a reduction of his time in jail.                         
Dean is currently an author, columnist, and commentator on contemporary politics,   
strongly critical of conservatism and Republican Party, and a registered           
independent supporting impeachment of President Bush.
