It was always clear that Donald Trump had a non-traditional presidency where he frequently abused his powers. But a number of tell-all books have recently revealed just how bad the situation was.

The most troubling reveal may have just come from Carol Leonnig and Philip Rucker’s new book about the last days of the Trump presidency. They allege the the former president considered initializing martial law to remain in office. This morning on CNN, Carl Bernstein blasted Trump’s GOP enablers.

The reporting legend began, “We need to take this moment and say, how did we get to a place where the leader of the American military compared the president of the United States to Hitlerian fascism? We didn’t say it. He did. This is a moment. That is that’s the importance of this book and perhaps the importance of some of the other books. We are finally getting behind the scenes as to what our leaders were saying and knew about Trump.”

Bernstein continued, “And yet his party — the people around him in the White House — they did not go public, including some of the people who are quoted in these books. Why the hell did they sit still instead of warning the American people out loud, instead of just talking to us? We have a lot of questions to answer as we know in an expanded way finally what has occurred in this terrible, terrible, awful period of our history.”
