Watergate’s Carl Bernstein: The walls are closing in on ‘self-convicting’ Trump

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s former national security advisor, Michael Flynn, is set to be sentenced Tuesday for lying to the FBI about his meeting with a Russian ambassador. Federal prosecutors recommended a light sentence due to Flynn having offered substantial help in their investigation.

Tuesday morning the president tweeted his support, while once again undercutting the Mueller probe. “Good luck today in court to General Michael Flynn,” Trump tweeted. “Will be interesting to see what he has to say, despite tremendous pressure being put on him, about Russian Collusion in our great and, obviously, highly successful political campaign. There was no Collusion!”

Despite the president’s perpetual campaign to undermine the Mueller investigation, more evidence points to wrongdoing by the president and his associates.

On CNN Tuesday, renowned investigative reporter Carl Bernstein explained the president’s predicament, noting that the walls are closing in around him—and that he’s not helping himself with self-incriminating behavior, like more lies.

“Let’s begin with what you have said is a president that is increasingly boxed in by the special counsel. And I wonder, is that box smaller today?” CNN host Poppy Harlow asked Bernstein.

“It’s increasingly smaller from the special counsel,” Bernstein noted.

“It’s increasingly smaller by the Democrats that will control Congress. It is increasingly smaller because of his own behavior which seems to be self-convicting in what he is saying and the way he is acting,” Bernstein said.

Trump slammed for lawless obstruction of Congress: ‘He’s taken a sledgehammer to the Constitution’

Published

on

On CNN Saturday, former Rep. Elizabeth Holtzman (D-NY), who voted for the articles of impeachment against President Richard Nixon, discussed the path forward for impeaching President Donald Trump.

"We know moderate Democrats are a bit frustrated with leadership over potentially expanding the scope of their consideration, maybe the Mueller report findings and drawing up these articles of impeachment," said anchor Victor Blackwell. "Do you think it's a mistake not to include anything beyond the Ukraine matter?"

"Yes," said Holtzman. "I think it would be a mistake, although, you know, I'm still at a distance, and the members of the committee really have to, who have been digging into this deeply have the best feel, but my sense is that the, what the president did is so egregious, not just with regard to Ukraine, but what part of what's bad about his activities in Ukraine, is that he's taken a sledgehammer to the Constitution by saying that Congress has no right to get information, and he's cut off his committee, his administration from, and ordered and directed them not to cooperate with the committee in any way."

Giuliani pummeled by ex-press secretary for ‘returning to the scene of the crime’ to create Ukraine chaos

Published

On CNN Saturday, Rudy Giuliani's former mayoral press secretary Ken Frydman harshly criticized his former boss for his ongoing efforts in the Ukraine scheme.

"As you've watched the former mayor over the last several years, have you identified a point at which things shifted for the man who I guess still is for some known at America's Mayor?" asked anchor Victor Blackwell."

"Well, yeah. I think when he went into business with Donald Trump," said Frydman. "You saw a — a severe change in his personality. He had a zealous need to make money, to be relevant. To be part of the political process. And you know right now he's making, I think, ill-advised decisions, like returning to the scene of the crime, Ukraine, to make a propagandist documentary. Almost as if he's playing, he and the president, are playing, 'catch me if you can.' The president will not participate in the impeachment hearings, and Rudy is off in the Ukraine doubling down."

donald trump on the phone

On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump had spoken to Rudy Giuliani over unsecured phone lines.

If he was using an unsecured phone to talk to Giuliani about Ukraine, Trump would effectively be allowing the Russians to listen in.

CNN confirmed the unsecured phone use, reporting "President Donald Trump has continued to use his personal cell phone to make calls, despite repeated warnings from his staff that the practice could leave him vulnerable to foreign surveillance, multiple officials told CNN."
