Freda Reiter – John Dean Goes to Testify – Pastel Drawing

As White House Counsel, John Dean often met with President Nixon and his top staff, and played a central part in the Watergate cover-up. His decision to testify against his White House colleagues was a key turning point in the Watergate scandal. In summer 1973, Dean appeared in front of the Senate Watergate committee. He later met with prosecutors and testified in grand jury hearings (likely the scene here).
