Journalist Bob Woodward said in a radio interview on Friday with Hugh Hewitt that in the two years of investigative work that he conducted for his book "Fear," he found no evidence of collusion between President Donald Trump and Russia — which Special Counsel Robert Mueller was hoping to find.

"There’s a lot complimentary in this book, the most important of which is John Dowd firmly believes, the president’s former lawyer, that the special counsel, Bob Mueller, has nothing," Hewitt began. "There’s no collusion, there’s nothing. It’s all a play to get an 18 USC 1001 perjury trap, and that POTUS should never sit down. Is that a fair assessment of what John Dowd believes?"

"Oh, well, yeah, until we end," Woodward said. "And finally, it, the point where Dowd resigns because he is convinced the president should not testify, Dowd concludes that Mueller had played him for a sucker, got all of the cooperation of 37 witnesses, a million pages-plus of campaign documents, 20,000 pages of White House documents. So in the end, as he says to the president, he said you were right. We can’t trust Mueller."

Hewitt later brought up the firing of former FBI Director James Comey and asked Woodward if he had any evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia.

"So let’s set aside the Comey firing, which as a constitutional law professor, no one will ever persuade me can be obstruction," Hewitt said. "And [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein has laid out reasons why even if those weren’t the president’s reasons. Set aside the Comey firing. Did you, Bob Woodward, hear anything in your research in your interviews that sounded like espionage or collusion?"

"I did not, and of course, I looked for it, looked for it hard," Woodward said. "And so you know, there we are. We’re going to see what Mueller has, and Dowd may be right. He has something that Dowd and the president don’t know about, a secret witness or somebody who has changed their testimony. As you know, that often happens, and that can break open or turn a case."

Hewitt pressed Woodward again, asking: "But you’ve seen no collusion?"

"I have not," Woodward said.



Nearly half an hour later, Hewitt once again pressed Woodward about collusion, asking: "Very last question, Bob Woodward, I just want to confirm, at the end of two years of writing this book, this intensive effort, you saw no effort, you, personally, had no evidence of collusion or espionage by the president presented to you?"



"That is correct," Woodward said.

His position is this:

Nixon was a criminal, we don't know yet if Trump is a criminal. We will wait to find out from the special counsel investigation.

So - a journalist who is only interviewing members of the Trumputin Administration has supposedly not found any collusion. Wow, that's about as relevant as when the most cultish trumptard here says the same.

And as substantiation, OP cites.........a different JOURNALIST referencing a quote from the White House lawyer, LOL.

And this dramatic new bombshell is taken from one of the most tinfoil-hat righty-tard sites in existence. LMFAO.

Great thread, OP. Seriously.

Just to clarify, does this make the content of the book believable then?

Cause I don’t think trump is gonna be found guilty of open collusion, however I do enjoy a laugh at the idea so many Americans voted for an utter potato of a human.

And itt derpy-a$$ Trumptards try to pretend that Bob Woodward is actually leading the investigation into Felony Don.

Let me give you smarties a small little hint : the investigation is being led by Robert Mueller. HE will be the one to present the findings of the investigation. Not Bob Woodward.


Now give us a big "derrrp", you silly potatoes. Then how about a "Space Force !!" chant, please.

Yes, that's the author's opinion.

This is Woodward's fact -

He has something that Dowd and the president don’t know about, a secret witness or somebody who has changed their testimony. As you know, that often happens, and that can break open or turn a case."

The truth has not "knocked anyone's teeth out" for two reasons :

1) Mueller has not released the results of his investigation.
2) Trumptards generally have very few teeth remaining to be knocked out.



Other than that though, carry on. Here, I'll help you : "Herp a derp a derp, the Mueller investigation will show no conspiracy or collusion with Russia because.......Bob Woodward says he was not shown it by Felony Don's OWN AIDES !!"

Honestly don't know why you posted this tinfoil-hat drivel or why you're still babbling about it.

Woodward is not running the investigation. Who cares what he was told by Felony Don's aides in regard to specific legal conclusions that he can't know.

Fkn sad.

I think we're all in agreement :

a) Woodward doesn't know the pending results of the Mueller investigation.
b) Felony Don's OWN AIDES apparently didn't construct an airtight case for conspiracy and/or collusion and present it to Woodward.

Shocker, I tell ya.

Nothing in the book so far (about 75% through) is out of the realm of reason. Some of it is a bit surprising like Trump saying, "That's cold" when someone said, "The millions of deaths will be over there (S. Korea) and not here."

So far, in my opinion (which is worthless to you, I know), Trump comes off as a guy with good intentions for the most part but is just retarded. That's a hell of a lot of an improvement than how I viewed him before starting the book.

In a 2006 University of Ohio poll more than half of democrats said it was either very likely or somewhat likely Bush was complicit in 9/11.
