A witness close to President Trump believes Robert Mueller is now in possession of all the facts surrounding President Trump’s Russian connections and the Kremlin’s interference in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.
The iconic journalist responsible for uncovering the Watergate scandal, Carl Bernstein, told CNN that a witness close to the Trump administration believes Mueller has all the facts. Bernstein told CNN’s Reliable Sources segment that Trump’s aides and legal team “are well aware that at least one of the principal witnesses who has been interviewed by Mueller… came out of being interviewed by Mueller and said ‘they know everything about Russia.'”
Despite Trump’s repeated assertions of his innocence and adamance that the Mueller investigation is nothing more than a witch hunt, those behind the scenes appear to understand the gravity of the situation, according to Bernstein’s witness.
Bernstein clarified, “it’s clear that Mueller is now connecting the dots between a massive obstruction intended to hide the truth about the Trump campaign, Trump, his business organization, and his family from investigators”.
This means the public may soon get the answers to the questions they crave. If the Trump campaign is so adamant that there was no collusion, why did Trump Jr., Flynn, Manafort, and Cohen tell so many lies about Russia? Bernstein mused, “Why is this, if there’s no collusion? If there is nothing there? If there is nothing to investigate? It’s all about Russia.”
