Bob Woodward predicted that evidence would emerge that could unravel Donald Trump's unconstitutional plot to block Joe Biden from the White House.
The veteran journalist and his Washington Post colleague and co-author Robert Costa appeared Friday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," where they discussed the indictment of Trump ally Steve Bannon, who they said was at the center of a criminal conspiracy to defraud the U.S. government -- and Woodward identified some of the key questions in the Jan. 6 investigation.
"The lingering question is intent," Woodward said. "What was Trump's intent? What was Bannon's intent?"
Host Joe Scarborough pointed out that Bannon had said prior to the U.S. Capitol riot that he wanted to kill the Biden presidency in the crib, but Woodward said that may not be enough to prove intent -- but he identified what might.
"That's not nice," Woodward said, "that's quite potentially illegal, but the issue of intent, did they really think that they could certify Donald Trump? No, I think there's going to be evidence that will come out that shows the goal was just to prevent Biden, and this is where you get to this statute that says, wait a minute, that's a crime. You can't step in and put your hammer down on a process which is in the Constitution."
