"Watergate Figure John Dean Suspects Barr May Be Hiding Something 'Fairly Ugly'"
-----------

We haven’t really seen the underlying report, but I have some suspicions that the reason he boiled this down the way he did is because it’s not very attractive. Mueller’s words are very different than Barr’s, I suspect....I think Barr had a heads up on this...one of the reasons he backed off on obstruction is there was disagreement with the department whether a sitting President was capable of obstructing justice.

Don Lemon asked Dean what if Barr had been the AG during Watergate?

<<"After reading Barr's Memo critiquing Mueller’s obstruction investigation and now his summary of Mueller’s Report, it is clear that Richard Nixon would not have been forced to resign his office if Barr had been AG. Barr wants a POTUS above the law.">>

....and Barr got his wish.
