Watergate’s Bob Woodward: Trump is too stupid to have organized a conspiracy with Russia

Published

on

On Friday, Axios reported that legendary Watergate reporter Bob Woodward is considering writing a second book on President Donald Trump — and that he was driven to do so, in part, because he is disturbed by how disorganized and out of his depth the president is as leader of the free world.

Woodward even went so far as to imply that special counsel Robert Mueller was probably right not to implicate Trump criminally — because he is too incompetent to have intentionally masterminded a scheme with Russia.

“It’s a governing crisis. He doesn’t know how to govern,” Woodward told Axios. “People who work with Trump say: You can’t even organize your own government. How could you possibly organize a conspiracy with Russia? … He doesn’t even have a to-do list, as best I can tell.”

Woodward’s previous book on the Trump presidency, “FEAR,” documented the chaos and squabbling in the early days of the administration. It is being re-released in paperback soon.

Mueller’s report suggested that while there was not enough evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Trump or anyone’s in his campaign officially arranged a criminal conspiracy with Russia to interfere in the 2016 election, it contains a trove of evidence that Russian officials offered their help to Trump’s team in numerous ways, and that they were aware and receptive of it.

At issue is a whistleblower's complaint that the White House refuses to release. It is believed it says Trump repeatedly threatened to withhold military aid from Ukraine until, or in exchange for, that country digging up and handing over dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden. There is no evidence any dirt was found or even exists.

Pulitzer Prize-winner reveals why the White House thinks Trump’s Ukraine scandal ‘can be spun as positive’

Published

Despite the growing movement for impeachment, advisors to President Donald Trump believe the bombshell reports about soliciting foreign election interference from Ukraine can be "spun as a positive" for the president's 2020 re-election campaign.

Ashley Parker, a White House reporter for The Washington Post, was interviewed about the thinking of Trump's advisors by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki on Monday.

"This is a White House, a Trump White House, that is used to being under siege. There was of course the two-and-a-half-year saga with the Mueller investigation culminating in the Mueller report, Mueller’s testimony recently. There have been a million other controversies, flare-ups, moments when the White House was forced to defend a comment from the president, allegation against the president, these sorts of things," Kornacki noted.

"A senior Democratic aide tells The Daily Beast that the idea of a select panel has 'been raised by some members' as a way to consolidate impeachment proceedings around Donald Trump."
