Watergate Reporter Carl Bernstein: ‘FBI Isn’t Tainted, Trump is’

Famous for his original reporting of the Watergate Scandal, Carl Bernstein is now looking for his fifteen minutes of fame again as he blasts President Trump in a CNN interview.

Perhaps Bernstein thinks people will just take his word for truth since he reported on a famous scandal in the past, but his assumptions are trash.

The reporter claims that Trump is trying to distract the public, and avert their attention from his own actions, in response to Trump’s tweet about the Russian dossier being a “pile of garbage.”

Trump tweeted, “WOW, @foxandfrlends “Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.” And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of garbage as the basis for going after the Trump Campaign!”

Newsflash: the dossier is a pile of garbage!


“The key word he keeps using is ‘tainted.’ There’s really only one institution that has been tainted through these months, and that is the Trump presidency,” Bernstein continued, “He’s contemptuous of those instruments.”

He also claims Trump is “doing a grave disservice to our democracy.”

Fox News Insider reports: 

Bernstein accused Trump of lying repeatedly and disrespecting American democracy and its “instruments.”

He said if Trump has done nothing wrong, as he has claimed, then he should “welcome” Robert Mueller’s investigation, rather than attack the investigators.

Reacting on “Happening Now,” a former strategist for the Ted Cruz presidential campaign said Bernstein wears an “advocacy badge” now rather than one of a reporter.

Jason Johnson said throughout 2017, Trump has gone after his detractors on Twitter and stayed on offense, which isn’t always viewed favorably by his own party.

“But in the president’s defense: he is controlling the message,” Johnson noted.
