January 6 committee has enough to nail ‘traitor’ Trump, says Carl Bernstein

Legendary Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein is convinced that a January 6th House committee has what it takes to uncover the culpability of “traitorous” former President Donald Trump in last year’s rebellion.

“We really have a traitorous president of the United States who is trying to foment a rebellion to prevent his successor from carrying out a coup,” Bernstein told Nation World News’s Anderson Cooper on Friday.

“What the Committee on January 6 is doing … is establishing a timeline that will definitively show how Donald Trump, his lawyers and those close to him attempted this coup so that there would be no real election of a President of United . state, and Trump will remain in office,” he said.

Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward Cooper’s program agreed that the stakes are high, Bernstein’s longtime Watergate partner.

Woodward said, “It is a crime to destroy the lawful act of government.” “It’s not ambiguous. It goes back 100 years… It’s exactly the same kind of deceit and deceit that is a crime,” he said.

“We have all the evidence, and the Justice Department finds it, as in the January 6 committee, to show that this was an organized conspiracy to destroy democracy. Cannot say this more directly. ”

Bernstein said Trump did “something no president has ever done. He said: ‘I’m going to be here behind this desk, I’m not going to admit that I lost the election. I’m here to stay’ I am leaving and will continue to be President of the United States beyond the point where Joe Biden, the elected President of the United States, was to take office.”

It is “a conspiracy led by the President of the United States like we’ve never seen,” he said. “That’s why Trump is a traitorous president.”

Bernstein said Americans are now “in an area we’ve never seen before,” made “more remarkable” by the Republican Party. After Watergate “the party that forced Richard Nixon out of office and forced him to resign” is backing Donald Trump today, backing his rebellion, trying to undermine the January 6 committee.

Bernstein warned, “Instead of government institutions trying to determine the truth about what happened … we now have one of the political parties dedicated to suppressing the truth.”
