An investigative journalist behind much of the original Watergate scandal reporting dropped a bombshell this week about Attorney General William Barr’s rumored effort to expose the deep state.
Carl Bernstein, who earned his fame by uncovering the massive scandal involving a break-in at the Watergate complex and the ensuing cover-up, revealed in a CNN interview Thursday what his sources say Barr is preparing to do.
“Barr is trying to deliver — and I have this, as do other reporters from other sources — to deliver evidence that perhaps this has all been a deep state conspiracy like Donald Trump alleges,” Bernstein, a CNN political analyst, said.
The recent “whistleblower” complaint, like the fault-ridden Steele dossier before it, has been accused of being nothing more than part of the leftist establishment’s plot to depose President Donald Trump.
While it appears Bernstein is no fan of Trump, it’s likely that the veteran journalist has trustworthy sources.
So far, it appears the whistleblower complaint is not the bulletproof accusation Democrats and some Republicans seem to think it is.
The complaint, written by someone who admits they were “not a direct witness” to much of what is contained in it, was a bombshell when it was publicly released earlier this week.
But there are some major issues with the complaint that Democrats would like to ignore.
Not only did the complaint’s author not have much, if any, firsthand information about Trump’s alleged misdeeds, but it was revealed earlier this week that the Intelligence Community Inspector General had reportedly found the writer showed indications of possible “political bias” against Trump.
If that’s not enough to hint at a deep state effort to take down Trump, just look at who helped the whistleblower.
The attorney representing and assisting the whistleblower once worked for both Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and former first lady/senator/secretary of state/failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The same lawyer works for a group called Whistleblower Aid, an organization formed during Trump’s presidency that seeks to assist those wanting to speak out against the government. The group has previously placed targeted ads outside of the White House, the Pentagon and other government buildings.
