Watergate Reporter Carl Bernstein: DOJ Phone Records Scandal A 'Nuclear Event'
Carl Berstein, of Woodward and Bernstein – the famed duo who helped bring down the Nixon Administration, believes the DOJ’s phone records scandal could spell trouble for the Obama White House.
Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe today, Berstein said:
”It’s outrageous. It’s totally inexcusable…the object of it is to intimidate people who talk to reporters. There’s no excuse for it whatsoever… a nuclear event.”
In related news, Eric Holder was expected to recuse himself from the DOJ’s probe of the AP phone records controversy this afternoon. This one could get uglier for the White House than Benghazi.
