Senators’ ‘craven public silence helped enable Trump’
By MartinPengelly | The Guardian
Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein has publicly named 21 Republican senators he says have “repeatedly expressed extreme contempt for [Donald] Trump and his fitness” for office.
As Trump continued to try to subvert the results of a presidential election he clearly lost to Joe Biden, Bernstein said on Twitter he was “not violating any pledge of journalistic confidentially [sic]”.
His information, he said, came from “colleagues, staff members, lobbyists [and] White House aides”.
Then he named names.
