Tuesday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” journalist and network contributor Carl Bernstein said “it is time for the Republicans to say,” the presidency of Donald Trump “is a national emergency.”
Bernstein was discussing reports about Trump’s competency according to a new book from his Watergate era colleague Bob Woodward.
Bernstein said, “The first thing is if this is not a warning sign going off to the Congress of the United States, to the Republicans of the Congress of the United States, saying, first of all, we must protect Mueller’s investigation; secondly, we cannot blindly follow this president and his incompetency, which is a theme throughout this book, and his recklessness and his disconcern for the national interest in favor of his own interest. It is time for the Republicans to say, the Trump presidency is a national emergency, and it is up to us, both parties, to treat the Trump presidency as a national emergency.”
