Legendary Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein is convinced the House committee investigating the events of Jan. 6, 2021, has what it needs to expose the culpability of “seditious” former President Donald Trump in last year’s Capitol riot.
“What we have is really a seditious president of the United States trying to foment insurrection to keep his successor from taking office, staging a coup,” Bernstein told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Friday.
“What the Jan. 6th committee is doing … is establishing a timeline that will show definitively how Donald Trump, his lawyers, and those closest to him attempted to stage this coup so there would be no real election of the president of the United States, and Trump would continue to be in office,” he added.
“It is a crime to subvert the lawful function of government,” said Woodward. “It is not ambiguous. It goes back 100 years … this is exactly the sort of trickery and deceit that is a crime.”
