  • Newt Gingrich: Where Are Woodward And Bernstein When We Need Them?

    The conspiracy between a corrupt set of bureaucracies (including the Justice Department, the IRS, and the intelligence community) and an equally corrupt and enabling elite media is astonishing. The Durham Report is just one more confirmation of the devastating level of dishonesty and manipulation which have characterized the last few years.Some analysts believe the open corruption can be traced back to Lois Lerner and the IRS scandal, in which she clearly stonewalled conservative organizations from getting tax status. When she was found to be in contempt of Congress, the Obama Justice Department spent two years ignoring the congressional contempt charge...

    Veteran journalist Bob Woodward revealed in a new interview that Washington Post reporters essentially ignored his warnings about the shortcomings of the infamous Christopher Steele dossier, amidst the feverish Russiagate media coverage that dominated the Trump administration. In a lengthy report for Columbia Journalism Review, Jeff Gerth interviewed media and political figures wrapped up in Russiagate — the sweeping term for the allegations of Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 election — including Donald Trump himself, finding in particular where the media went wrong. Woodward, one of the reporters famous for breaking the Watergate scandal for the Washington Post, told Gerth...

    Veteran Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward on Monday called former President Trump’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic a “crime” because he kept early warnings about the health crisis from the American people. “If there was ever the leadership test of a lifetime for the president, it was this pandemic. It was a health and political crisis like we have not seen in this country. And he walked away from it. And as you listen to these tapes, particularly on the virus, but on any subject, he kind of goes from denial to concealment to the crime,” Woodward said on CNN’s...

    Former President Trump told Washington Post journalist Bob Woodward that he had “good chemistry” with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, Woodward revealed in a new clip from his new audiobook. In the clip, Trump tells Woodward, “I’m the only one he deals with,” in reference to Kim. “The word chemistry. You meet somebody and you have a good chemistry,” Trump added about the North Korean leader. “You meet a woman. In one second, you know whether or not it’s all going to happen.” Woodward had asked Trump about his relationship with Kim and told the former president that the...

    Bob Woodward writes in a new op-ed that former President Trump “continues to lead” a “seditious conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election” that the veteran Washington Post journalist believes will “destroy democracy” in the U.S. Woodward writes that “Trump has learned where the levers of power are” in the American government and is seeking to to pull them to gain full control. “And full control means installing absolute loyalists in key Cabinet and White House posts,” Woodward writes. “The record now shows that Trump has led — and continues to lead — a seditious conspiracy to overturn the 2020 election,...

We have stuff you haven’t even seen or ever heard about. We have stuff that Putin and Xi have never heard about before.”

    . . . Do we need still another Watergate book?” *** The Post also credits Graff’s “prodigious research,” while echoing his conclusion that “we’ll never know the full truth of Watergate” ... If observations like these are used to justify a new 679-page history, one may ask, why bother? Why read a book that throws up its hands and says, “Who knows? One answer comes in Graff’s treatment of two seminal revisionist works, Jim Hougan’s 1984 Secret Agenda and Len Colodny’s 1991 Silent Coup. These two works, in fact, solve quite convincingly many of the mysteries Graff contends are still...

    And then there was the book All the President’s Men by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the two Washington Post reporters who’d supposedly brought Nixon down. When it came out in 1974, I read it avidly. And two years later I was enthralled by the movie version, written by William Goldman and directed by Alan J. Pakula. But there was one thing - in the book and the movie - that always puzzled me. I’ll describe it as it’s presented in the film. Woodward (Robert Redford) meets late at night in a parking garage with his secret source, known as...

    A new book shows that Woodward and Bernstein lied. And lied. And lied. I was a child of the Watergate generation. Vacationing at a lake house the summer I was 17, I spent weeks glued to the committee hearings on TV. Back in school that fall, I wrote a paper arguing that Nixon should resist pressure to resign. Headed south the next August, I watched Nixon’s resignation speech at a motor lodge on I-95 and the next day, on the highway, listened on the car radio as Gerald R. Ford declared “our long national nightmare” over. And then there was...

    Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward said on CNN’s coverage of today’s hearing by the House Select Committee investigating January 6, 2021 that the testimony from Mark Meadows’ former aide Cassidy Hutchinson proved Donald Trump was a dangerous president who incited the Capitol riot. Woodward said, “I called my second book on Trump Rage because he told me that he brings out rage in people. This is the first concrete series of examples of him resorting to rage and violence himself. And it’s Gina Haspel, the CIA director he appointed early on said when he fired the defense secretary said,...

    Fifty years after the Watergate burglary that led to the downfall of US president Richard Nixon, Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward is still haunted by one question. "The unanswered question that pulses through all of this is 'Why?' Woodward said at an event at Post headquarters with his former reporting colleague Carl Bernstein.

    The American Spectator ^ | June 16, 2022 | Francis P. Sempa
    Geoff Shepard, former deputy White House counsel for Nixon, has written three fabulous books that should forever change Americans’ views about Watergate — The Secret Plot to Make Ted Kennedy President (2008), The Real Watergate Scandal (2015), and The Nixon Conspiracy (2021). ... Shepard has also written a series of important articles on Watergate for The American Spectator. Shepard’s work has solidly built on the foundations laid by James Hougan’s Secret Agenda (1984) and Len Colodny’s and Robert Gettlin’s Silent Coup: The Removal of a President (1991). Shepard’s work shatters the conventional Woodward–Bernstein “history” of Watergate peddled by the mainstream...

    In their dogged reporting of the Watergate scandal, Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein uncovered the crimes that forced Richard Nixon to resign the presidency in August 1974. That version of Watergate has long dominated popular understanding of the scandal, which unfolded over 26 months beginning in June 1972. It is, however, a simplistic trope that not even Watergate-era principals at the Post embraced. For example, the newspaper’s publisher during Watergate, Katharine Graham, pointedly rejected that interpretation during a program 25 years ago at the now-defunct Newseum in suburban Virginia. “Sometimes, people accuse us of ‘bringing down a...

    Thursday on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward called the House Select Committee on the January 6 riots “historic.” Cooper asked, “Was there anything really new tonight? For minds that are already made up, was there anything new that would convince people to look at this in a new light?” Woodward replied, “Oh, yes. I think what happened tonight was historic. I think it’s a brilliant, truly brilliant presentation by Benny Thompson and by Liz Cheney. Listen to the detail and the — they have it, they have it cold as best I can tell and...

    Washington Post associate editor Bob Woodward said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports” that he believed former President Donald Trump and others “conspired in a criminal way to overturn” the 2020 election and prevent President Joe Biden from taking power. Woodward said, “I think people are going to watch. They realize the stakes are our democracy and what happened. I’m am convinced, having spent part of my life on Donald Trump, that he and others conspired in a criminal way to overturn the election and prevent Biden from taking power legitimately.”

    Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein said former President Donald Trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election was something not even former President Richard Nixon would have imagined. In an op-ed in The Washington Post, the two reporters known for uncovering the Watergate scandal said they thought Nixon defined corruption until they saw Trump's presidency. In 1972, the Nixon administration coordinated a break-in at the Democratic National Committee's headquarters. The administration attempted to cover up its involvement until Nixon was forced to resign in 1974.

    This June 17 will mark 50 years since five burglars were caught red-handed in the Watergate offices of the Democratic National Committee. We will be regaled once again with laudatory tales of the two intrepid cub reporters, whose dogged investigative work thwarted a determined cover-up by President Richard Nixon and his henchmen. *** The truth behind a separate troubling event did not emerge until Jeff Himmelman’s book Yours in Truth: A Personal Portrait of Ben Bradlee was published in 2012. He tells the story of his discovery of a seven-page Bernstein memo in Bradlee’s files, detailing Bernstein’s highly improper interview...

    The U.S. government faced a potential nuclear crisis in 2020, when Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Mark Milley, fearing then-President Donald Trump would order the U.S. military to strike China, plotted to thwart any such directive with a scheme that one prominent Republican lawyer likened to “‘The Caine Mutiny’ with plutonium.” The podcast was taped with New York litigator George Conway and Washington Post reporters Bob Woodward and Carol Leonnig on the panel. All three, to varying degrees, expressed skepticism as to whether Trump will ultimately be indicted for his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election — despite the...
