Carl Bernstein concerning Trump/Russia investigation: "Oh my god, there’s a cover-up going on."

Courtesy of The Independent:  

Famed Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein says that the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn could end up revealing a “cover-up” of alleged connections between President Donald Trump's team and Russia. 

“I think it's obvious that Gen. Flynn is in up to his neck in terms, not just of possible crimes involving his speeches and whether or not he registered as a foreign agent, which he should have and didn’t,” Mr Bernstein said. 

“There, he is central to what the FBI believes is a cover-up going on among people close to the president of the United States about what happened with the Trump campaign and Russia,” Mr Bernstein, who is now a CNN commentator, said. "The FBI, the congressional investigators are trying to learn what happened. And Flynn is almost like the ball of yarn that begins to unspool and is key to understanding it."

Mr Bernstein said that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, now that he is leading the Justice Department's probe into Russia's role alleged in the election, will eventually see that there is a cover-up as well. "He is going to see, ‘Oh my god, there’s a cover-up going on,’" Bernstein said.

This is not the first time that Carl Bernstein has dropped a bomb about an active coverup within the Trump Administration nor is he now the only one doing so.

It should also be noted that currently 4 in 10 Americans believe that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians: 

An ABC News/Washington Post poll published Wednesday morning found 56 percent believe Russia tried to meddle in the election, while 39 percent think Trump campaign aides intentionally tried to help them.

With public opinion turning against them so dramatically it makes sense that the Trump folks would be trying to cover up what actually took place during the 2016 election cycle.

However to do so would indicate that they have not paid attention to history, and are unaware of the lessons of Watergate.

    First off. The United States of America is without a President and administration/cabinet. Don John is a fake, a fraud, a liar and con artist. He and his cult have attempted to pull off the biggest scam and fraud in world history. It is disgustingly dangerous and criminal. The election was rigged, and it is moot. Each day that this moot election remains we are in extreme danger. It is time to arrest the liars and remove them from the peoples house and buildings. All involve must be held liable and accountable. LOCK THEM UP LOCK THEM UP LOCK THE LIARS UP and lock the pos liars up.

      lol it is the "moot" person.

      Unfortunately for you there is still no such thing as a "moot" election. The mechanisms of the US government haven't changed since yesterday when you claimed a moot election, or the day before that, or the day before that...

      Moot, lol.

      The election was rigged, you know it and Americans know it. Don trump is no more president than bozo the clown. Citizen United failed. Global republicans failed, Putin failed. The election was "MOOT" and "YOU PEOPLE" got caught. It is just the facts and truth that eat a LIAR up. Face it, big trouble in la la land.

    4. Had the Republicans not turned treasonous and trampled the functioning of the Republic, they'd have decertified the electoral result and thrown the election to the House of Representatives where then the vote should have gone to Secretary Colin Powell who was the third top getter in the Electoral College (thanks to a handful of "faithless" Clinton-pledged electors). My president is Colin Powell.

      lol. Just checked this morning 12:48, still no such thing as 'moot' elections. The laws have not changed since yesterday.

    Is little donnie’s rush to undo all of President Obama’s achievements at a record pace due to the fact he knows he is going to be impeached?

    Will he also be required to reimburse the taxpayers for all the frivolous expenses he has racked up, like the helipad and other stuff we don’t know about at Mar a Lago? Refund the security for business trips by his children?

    Pence has been pretty quite, what is his involvement in this criminal administration?

    1. Anonymous5:54 PM

      Well, he is a fundamentalist born-again catholic xtian, so I'd bet on a lot of criminal involvement. But that's just me.

      They're taking pains to distance Pence from any involvement in this clusterfuck, but make no mistake: he's up to his pencil neck in it.

      Pence does not make any decisions before consulting with Mommy, his wife.He even had her along when he visited the N. Korea leaders. She is sort of his Ivanka, I guess.

    6. Anonymous5:34 AM

      Dense Pence is no good guy. He knew when he jumped in the swamp that is was a corrupt outfit. His wife too. He must resign also. He is not our vice president. He is an enabler to trump.

    Interesting, they want to destroy our healthcare, but keep it for themselves.

    Since the republicans are always looking out for their best interests, Obamacare must be very good!!!!

    Bunch of criminal HYPOCRITES. They should all be voted out.

    Ryan moves to ax lawmaker exemption in Obamacare repeal bill

    House GOP leaders are moving quickly behind the scenes to iron out a wrinkle in their latest Obamacare repeal legislation: a controversial provision that preserves Obamacare coverage protections for members of Congress and their staffs while allowing states to opt out of them.

    Late Wednesday night, the House Rules Committee posted the text of a one-page bill that strikes the exemption for lawmakers that caused such a ruckus for Republicans on Wednesday morning. Discovery of the loophole, first reported by Vox, had triggered charges of hypocrisy from Democrats the entire day..............

    Anyone paying attention knew this cover up was happening on the day that SOB POS LYING RAPIST rode his elevator down and brought hell with him. The most disturbing part is how this LIAR and his pal putin had evil in place to maneuver this outcome. Bad Actors in various positions in each and every state. How media, banks, CEO's and network owners helped. How many citizens were either silenced by threat, bribes, extortion or hacking. Yes we certainly do have a divided nation, and for what reason? To help evil? to destroy families? To mine the earth? To drill for something that we do not need? To harm innocent humans? Is this about religion? About a cult, scientology? America has been harmed by don john trump, his family, his associates and his enablers. All are guilty of treason and espionage according to the United States Constitution. Why are our elected servants now standing up, speaking up and taking action? Where was the agencies in charge of our protection? Who vetted don trump and his cabinet of criminals? Identifying who was onboard to make this happen has been awakening and alarming. It is beyond belief that even a decent usa citizen would accept and enable a truly criminal act against our democracy and livelihood. It is beyond belief the evil hate running through the veins of some elected, appointed or assigned individuals. Indeed voters were bamboozled by fake news, by russian operatives, by china. We were personally attacked, hacked and threatened. The country was flooded with unnecessary weapons, was flooded with lies and propaganda from guns shows, infected by unregulated militias members, by evil networks of predators. And even some military personal and veterans brought home the fight, the mental illness to our lands. I believe enough citizens are now awake today. I believe there will be a good outcome very soon. And I believe justice will be served to those that arranged this crime against the world. And indeed we the people have learned a valuable lesson in guarding our democracy and freedoms. As Our Ordinary Citizens said in the face of evil aboard that doomed flight, "Let it Roll" and the warning that were coming for you. F^ck off Eat sh^t. Kiss your ass goodbye. We will have no mercy on your hateful souls as "you people" did not have mercy nor compassion carrying out your crime against Americans. Our ancestors gave their blood and life for America. "You people" will confess your sins in a court of laws and you will beg for forgiveness in the face of USA citizens. Americans DEMAND that Donald John Trump and his enablers resign today and put this rigged election to rest forever. History will show a very bad chapter and America will be stronger because of it!

  9. The Republicans are blaming Obama for not vetting Flynn?

    To which I can only reply, WTF?

    But it is truly consistent with their policies and past practice. They always blame Democrats for the bad and take credit for the good, no matter who is actually responsible.

    So of course, it's Obama's fault that Flynn is a traitor.

  10. No mention of Obama's $400,000 speaking fee for investment bank Cantor Fitzgerald health care conference?

    "Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Thursday that she’s troubled by former President Barack Obama’s accepting a $400,000 speaking fee from a Wall Street firm."

    1. Anonymous9:52 AM

      I don't like it, but let's face it: that was easy money for him to make. How many people would refuse a paycheck like that? Hell, I wouldn't. I'd need a shower afterwards, but I'd cash the check & try to forget about where it came from.

    2. He doesn't need the money.

    3. Anonymous1:37 PM

      Barack Obama is going to do wonderful things with that money.

      What are you going to do with yours?

      Oh, and why isn't Elizabeth Warren concerning herself with her corrupt tax-hiding friend Bernie Sanders and his lying missus?

    SEOUL (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump's suggestion that South Korea could pay for an advanced U.S. missile defense system could test the strength of the alliance between Seoul and Washington at a time of rising tensions with North Korea, analysts said on Friday.

    Gee, without knowing any specific details (as Congress and reporters do), I've been pretty sure that there's been a massive cover up of the Russian/Trump/GOP collusion for months now. Every White House attempted digression and every war mongering moment have been part of it. This morning Trump's saying the trade deal with South Korea is an outrage! He's so busy scaring our allies that he seems to be pandering to potential enemies. That's not how to run a country. In the meantime, conservatives are apparently just thrilled with his first 100 days (per column in Wash. Post this morning).

  13. Anonymous5:39 AM

    The absolute worst 100 days in USA History. Witnessing treason and espionage by elected servants is dangerous. The People will revolt, money will mean nothing, and those involved in this crime will be held accountable and liable.
