“It's a fundamentally racist appeal that the president sees as his one path toward victory in his election effort. It is probably the most provocative and hateful set of speeches by an incumbent president in the post-war era.” -- @carlbernstein on Trump's 4th of July speeches.

"Strong men like Putin and Erdogan took great advantage of an unbriefed ignorant, to use [the sources] words, President," says journalist @CarlBernstein on his report that US officials are alarmed at Pres. Trump's calls with world leaders.

New, alarming reporting by CNN's  @Carl Bernstein: Trump's handling of highly classified calls with foreign heads of state helped convince some senior US officials "that the President himself posed a danger to the national security of the United States." http://www.cnn.com/2020/06/29/politics/trump-phone-calls-national-security-concerns/index.html

Finally Mattis has said publicly what he’s been saying in private. It’s no secret that McMaster, Kelly & Tillerson have said much the same in private – and that they believe Trump is a threat to nat’l security & unfit by temperament to be POTUS. Maybe they too will now go public.

We have now watched an armed attack, instigated by the president of the United States, on peaceful, law-abiding demonstrators exercising their Constitutional rights. All of Trump’s actions and words have etched today as a grim moment in American history.

“The question for the press, all Americans, the senators, and congressmen that needs to be raised is, are we at the mercy of a delusional, unstable president, at the moment that we have lost more lives than in any event since World War II?" -- @carlbernstein

Journalist Carl Bernstein says President Trump's "liberate" tweets are playing "to his base as well as to cover-up his own malfeasance and misfeasance throughout this terrible episode in our history."

Donald John Trump is doing to Republican senators what he did to President Zelensky and Ukraine:  threatening them and hanging them out to dry for his personal gain;  at the expense of the national security interests of the United States.

Jim Lehrer’s contribution to great reporting and the ethics of modern journalism is monumental. Not incidentally, he was also a wonderful raconteur, warm friend, and mentor for hundreds in our profession. Thanks, Jim. C.

"We're looking at 'Midnight Mitch' and the so-called world's greatest deliberative body, really embracing a cover-up that is there for all to see. That's what this is about."

Essential now Select congressional committee (probably from Sen. Intel) obtain transcripts/summaries/voice-printouts (like Nixon tapes) of Trump calls w/ Erdogan, Putin, Xi, et al. Already much unequivocal evidence POTUS undermined natl security for personal & political gain.

"We can start from the premise that what we're seeing once again is that Donald Trump is toxic," says @CarlBernstein responding to reports that the special envoy to Ukraine has resigned.

Bolton firing is latest evidence of dire crisis: in which US nat'l security is destabilized by conduct of POTUS, as recognized by our allies and enemies. Trump has shown he is incapable of a coherent presidency, or coherent governance. Only self-interest. https://www.mediaite.com/tv/carl-bernstein-blasts-trump-after-bolton-ouster-we-have-a-governing-cris...

@Donald J. Trump  @ChuckGrassley et al. Once again, bottom line is contempt for truth-seeking, wherever it leads: Hence opposition to FBI investigation (despite many precedents) of  #ProfessorFord's allegations-- with witnesses prosecutable for lying to FBI.

@donald trump- I have spent my life as a journalist bringing the truth to light, through administrations of both parties. No taunt will diminish my commitment to that mission, which is the essential role of a free press.  @CNN stands by its story, and I stand by my reporting.

John McCain was a truly remarkable American. Please see my profile of him, from a Vanity Fair cover story during the 2000 election campaign, at http://carlbernstein.com.

"This is worse than Watergate, because the system worked in Watergate."

"I think it's time to recognize that what we are watching in the Trump presidency is worse than Watergate," says Carl Bernstein

Woodward and Bernstein: Are we watching the lead-up to another Saturday Night Massacre? https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/nixon-fired-the-man-investigating-him-will-trump/2018/02/09/3...

Extraordinary rebuke to  @Donald J. Trump and GOP enablers of coverup --via his own FBI director: “As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about the material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy,”

We may look back on tonight as the Monday Night Slaughter of the administration of justice in the United States.

Important Republicans perhaps not so private anymore re:  @Donald J. Trump’s “stability” and fitness to be POTUS.

Republican Sen. Corker: Trump has not demonstrated "stability" or "competence" to lead effectively http://wapo.st/2w6vJYp

(3/3)—Reporters should find out how pervasive such talk may be.

(2/3) BC of lack of ethics, competence, ‘temperament/stability.’

(1/3) Important Republicans/conservs/Intel-military hi-ups increasingly saying in private that  @Donald J. Trump is unfit to be president.

The problem is not the chief of staff. The problem--dangerous beyond any modern presidency--is the president.

See my Vanity Fair cover profile of John McCain  @Carl Bernstein.com--from 1999, as he prepared to run for Potus: especially relevant now.
