Pulitzer Prize-winning Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein appeared Sunday on CNN Newsroom With Fredericka Whitfield and discussed the recording of President Donald Trump asking Georgia’s secretary of state to “find 11,780 votes” during a phone conversation a day earlier.
Bernstein knows a thing or two about presidential recordings, as his landmark reporting with Bob Woodward for the Washington Post led to President Richard Nixon resigning from office. However, he insists that the recordings of Trump are much more damning.
“It’s not déjà vu,” Bernstein said. “This is something far worse than Watergate. We have both a criminal president of the United States in Donald Trump, and a subversive president of the United States.”
