Bob Woodward: ‘The Investigative Walls Are Closing In on Trump’


Bob Woodward joined MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell last night to talk about the latest developments in the Trump investigations and parallels to the days of Richard Nixon.

O’Donnell read quotes from the Woodward-Bernstein book The Final Days that he found particularly relevant to what’s happening to the current Commander-in-CHief.

And Woodward himself said while he doesn’t know what phase of that Trump is on now, “clearly the investigative walls are closing in on Trump.”

He did say the Nixon investigation shows “you need real high-quality evidence” and not just speculation. That being said, Woodward called Michael Cohen‘s plea a “game-changer.”

As far as the Nixon parallel is concerned, Woodward noted how for a while, Republicans stuck with the President, but “there was an accumulation of evidence, and that evidence in its most powerful form came from Nixon’s secret tape recordings.”

People around Nixon were “most appalled by the lying and the deceit,” and Woodward added that that people in the White House right now have “the most profound anxiety about what’s going on.”
