Veteran investigative journalist Carl Bernstein said his sources are telling him that Attorney General William Barr is preparing to push a "deep state" conspiracy to protect President Trump. During an appearance Thursday on CNN, the famed Watergate sleuth reacted to controversy about an intelligence community whistleblower who filed a complaint alleging Trump improperly leveraged military aid to encourage Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter. Trump attacking the whistleblower's sources as being "close to a spy" and alluding to capital punishment, Bernstein said, provided "real time" evidence of the president's corruption. Additionally, Bernstein said the release of the Trump-Zelensky call transcript and the whistleblower's

Comments:

No “veteran sleuth”, Barr’s outspokenness on CNN and articles about it appear to have added steam to the vicious Dims’ rush to impeachment. They do believe something big is coming and want to get out ahead of it...

Protect Donald Trump? So Bernstein implies the Deep State is appropriate? This guy has lost all credibility.

Carl Bernstein is just one of the many reasons that the press in this nation has no credibility. Almost nothing they "report" and say can be believed. They are truly the enemy inside the gate of a great nation. They are trying to bring this nation into their liberal slime pit. Our forefathers would have hanged them long ago for their un-American activities.

#1, I think Bernstein has always been jealous that he didn't get the adulation that Woodward did after they overthrew Nixon. Bernstein has been languishing in obscurity and forgotten about, while Woodward has had public admiration for decades. He should know all about Deep State, since those two sleazes used it to commit a coup against Nixon. I loathe all the msm, they are so hateful of us and this nation as a whole.

We've all been waiting for something big to give, and I believe it's finally about to happen. That's why the Dems are pushing a desperate attempt to retain a semblance of legitimacy thru this "impeachment inquiry". It is a 4ick-measuring contest to see Who's Investigation Is The Biggest.

The whole impeachment brouhaha is so they can claim the indictments about to fall on big Democrats just represent Trump trying to stop his impeachment. Never mind that the real crimes of the Democrats came long before the fake crime he will be impeached for.

I keep hoping someone in the media will finally realize that the whistleblower complaint was triggered by the same people as were talking to Bernstein. They are using the impeachment story to conflate Barr with the Trump phone call and discredit him before the Ukrainian evidence that he got from Giuliani is used in several criminal indictments. Joe Biden's misuse of his office is just the tip of a very large, corrupt iceberg based on Rudy's public statements.

Bernstein is all about opinions, and opinions in DC are like a-holes, everyone has one! If Barr does swing into action with the announcement of a whole bunch of indictments, from there on out opinions will not count, then they will have to move on to something like the truth. All that will then come to a head next year right during the run-up to the 2020 election, and that will not be good for the Democrats. Thus the Democrats have created the impeachment diversion that just popped up. One thing is for sure, the politicized bureaucratic Senior Executive Service that houses the main “Deep State” operatives must be reformed big time.

Michael Atkinson, the intelligence community’s inspector general at the center of the so-called “whistleblower” report, is earning Robert Mueller-level adoration by the press. Atkinson, we are told, is a truth-seeker with no partisan agenda or political grudge. “The intelligence community’s chief watchdog, Michael Atkinson, is known to his peers and colleagues as a highly cautious ‘straight shooter’ who tends to keep his head down,” cooed Politico reporter Natasha Bertrand on September 23.(Snip)n July 2016, the exact month that former FBI Director James Comey officially opened a case against the Trump campaign, Atkinson was named senior counsel to John Carlin, the head of the National Security Division.

There has not in modern American history been such a preposterous excuse for a threat to the presidency as the Ukraine affair. The “favor” the president sought from President Zelinsky of Ukraine was that he reopen his inquiry into corruption so there would be more support in Washington for aid to Ukraine’s self-defense against Russian territorial intrusion. About 500 words later in the transcript, President Trump asked that the question of the Bidens’ involvement in Ukraine be scrutinized too, without indicating a desired response, (though he said, correctly, that it looked “horrible”). If, as they claim, the Bidens are innocent of any wrongdoing or impropriety, the Ukrainians presumably will say

Methinks Mr. Atkinson doth protest too much. Prior to the current “whistle-blower complaint” the Intelligence Community Inspector General did not accept Urgent Concern whistle-blower claims without first hand knowledge. However, the ICIG revised the protocol in August 2019 to accept a CIA complaint against President Donald Trump. Today the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, Michael Atkinson, presented a four-page justification explaining why the IC changed the Urgent Concern rules to allow the CIA to target President Trump with anonymous complaints based on hearsay:

Lots of solid information and debate today. Thankfully, since our outline two days ago explaining the strategy of Pelosi, republicans have caught on.

President Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani appears on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo to discuss the Ukraine issues, corruption and Joe Biden. Ultimately, in the background of the Ukraine issue, Giuliani’s points highlight how Senate Republicans are intentionally sandbagging the issues because they too are culpable in the Ukraine origin.

Amid the furor over President Trump’s July 25 phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, which has prompted House Democrats to move forward with a Trump impeachment inquiry, serious underlying questions about the Biden family’s involvement in Ukraine persist. With evidence suggesting that Hunter Biden’s dealings in Ukraine posed a conflict of interest for his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, some Biden defenders are deploying talking points meant to deflect from the troubling facts. But some of these talking points – regularly repeated in the news media – do not hold up to a fact check Point 1: There was an “absolute wall” between Hunter Biden’s business and Vice President Biden.

Carl Bernstein is an insufferable propagandist for the political left; but sometimes you can get a sense of where things stand by listening to his partisan protestations.(Snip) Accepting the general premise, (Snip), the comments by Bernstein would seem to indicate Bill Barr is indeed investigating the background of the ‘soft-coup’. Obviously Bernstein is a creature of the DC cocktail circuit; as a result perhaps those who operate in/around the same circles of the administrative state are recognizing their activity in 2016 and 2017 is about to be exposed. Perhaps this explains the apoplectic responses and sense of urgency from the far-left political class over the past week.
