Former White House Counsel John Dean (far right and on screen from the Senate Watergate Hearings in 1973) reflected on the lessons and pitfalls of "reporting up" on the crimes committed during the Watergate burglary and cover-up.  He and co-presenter, Jim Robenalt (presidential historian and partner with Thompson Hine) held our audience rapt when recounting Mr. Dean's decision to break rank with the White House.
