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.
