The famed Watergate journalist accused the GOP Senate majority leader of setting a dangerous precedent.
The Watergate journalist called the likely vote to block witnesses in Donald Trump's impeachment trial a "really shameful episode."
Famed Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein tagged Sen. Mitch McConnell with a new nickname on the eve of the impeachment trial and it all has to do with the new rules the Senate leader is looking to impose.
Move over "Moscow Mitch." The Senate majority leader has a new mocking moniker thanks to the famed Watergate reporter.
The Watergate reporter said Trump is “untruthful in ways and to an extent that had never been dreamed somebody holding the Oval Office could be."
"We have a different dynamic after today," said the Watergate reporter after the first public impeachment hearing against Trump.
The U.S. is in “the middle of a cold civil war," said the famed Watergate reporter.
"This is about a conspiracy ... to undermine the American electoral system through the intervention of a foreign power," the famed Watergate journalist said.
“We are in the midst of a continuing cover-up by the president," aided by William Barr, says Bernstein.
"We have a president of the United States who lies .... serially, routinely, compulsively, such as never has happened in our modern history," he said.
The legendary Watergate reporter says the president is boxed in and the people around him know it.
The president's "methodology is to engage and manipulate us on the basis of lying," Bernstein said.
"We are watching a president, whose back is to the wall," trying to grab a "get-out-of-jail pass," the Watergate journalist says.
"Those closest to the president are saying we must save the country from the president,” says the former Watergate journalist.
Watergate legend is calling on Republicans to stand up to the president.
The president took aim at famed journalist Carl Bernstein.
"The cover-up is demonstrable."
"Trump does not want this story told. That's the bottom line."
"We have the unprecedented situation of one of the major political parties ... backing the president in showing and believing that he is above the law.”
"They have an out of control client," says the Watergate journalist.
