Former White House counsel to former President Richard Nixon, John Dean, predicted that former President Donald Trump would be indicted soon after reports that Trump’s ex-lawyer Michael Cohen has met with the Manhattan district attorney’s office multiple times.

Dean served as a key witness in the 1973 Senate hearings during the Watergate scandal. He explained in his testimony that White House officials, including Nixon himself, obstructed justice to cover up the break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters. He was later convicted of obstruction of justice and served four months in prison.

“From personal experience, as a key witness, I assure you that you do not visit a prosecutor’s office 7 times if they are not planning to indict those about whom you have knowledge,” Dean wrote on Twitter. “It is only a matter of how many days until DA Vance indicts Donald & Co.”

Cohen met with the Manhattan DA’s office on Wednesday for the seventh time as part of the criminal investigation into Trump’s finances. An eighth meeting is expected to occur shortly.
