"If President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the presidency, its worse than Watergate,” journalist Carl Bernstein says.

 

Bernstein’s views on the matter were of great interest to a standing room-only crowd in Hyde Park on Wednesday night.

 

Along with his Washington Post colleague Bob Woodward, Bernstein, of course, broke the Pulitzer Prize-winning stories about the Watergate break-in that ultimately led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation. Now 73, Bernstein waxed lyrical about the parallels between the early 1970s and today’s political scene, describing this orange haired president as a spectacularly ignorant….grifterwho has contempt for the law.”

 

“What Watergate was about at it’s most basic level was a vast campaign of political espionage and sabotage to undermine the democratic political process in this country,” he told David Axelrod in an onstage interview following a screening of “All the President’s Men” at the Revival Theater.

 

Noting similar themes in the current scandal, Bernstein added, “Just as the Russians in the current instance case tried to undermine our electoral system, here was the president of the United States trying to do the same thing, and if the allegations about Trump are true, that he colluded with Russia, then you have the president again willing to undermine the most basic part of our modern democratic system, which is free elections.”

 

“We’ve got to be a little cautious here — we’ve got to see where this goes. But at the same time, we also know that we’re dealing with a situation that appears to be a real feeling that is worse than Watergate in many, many ways, in the sense that we have a president of the United States who lies about almost anything.”
