‘When I learned that I got a chill’: Bob Woodward reveals the scariest thing he knows about Trump to HBO’s Bill Maher

Published

on

On Friday, HBO’s Bill Maher interviewed Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Bob Woodward, one of the journalists who broke the Watergate scandal that brought down President Nixon.

The two men discussed Woodward’s book, Fear, and Trump’s ability to scare so many Republicans into supporting him. Trump is fundamentally changing the country, the men agreed.

“He’s gambling with who we are and what the country is,” Woodward said.

Maher said he doesn’t see a scenario where Trump gives up his office willingly, and that Trump’s current protests of the election results in Florida are a “dress rehearsal” for a coup.

“It is part of his being to get power over people—to crush them, to demean them,” Woodward said. “What astonished me is getting close to the people who are close to him, the closer they were, the more they worked with him, the more anxiety and fear, so they would do things like steal documents off his desk.”

Woodward said that he would often talk to aides who explained why the United States did certain things to Trump, who did not understand them. Many times the reason came down to “so we don’t have World War III,” which Trump never seemed to fully grasp.

“When I learned about that, I got a chill,” Woodward said.

Law enforcement files discredit Brian Kemp’s accusation that Democrats tried to hack the Georgia election

Published

on

It was a stunning accusation: Two days before the 2018 election for Georgia governor, Republican Brian Kemp used his power as secretary of state to open an investigation into what he called a “failed hacking attempt” of voter registration systems involving the Democratic Party.

But newly released case files from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation reveal that there was no such hacking attempt.

The evidence from the closed investigation indicates that Kemp’s office mistook planned security tests and a warning about potential election security holes for malicious hacking.

Kemp then wrongly accused his political opponents just before Election Day — a high-profile salvo that drew national media attention in one of the most closely watched races of 2018.
