Watergate journalist claims that the Mueller report will say that Trump has helped destabilize the United States & # 39;
Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein has claimed that the report by Robert Mueller will say that Donald Trump has helped "destabilize the United States."
Bernstein told CNN on Sunday that Trump's actions had led insiders of the White House to believe that he was a "half-way pawn." who had worked for Vladimir Putin.
It comes as the Washington Post reported Saturday that Trump had taken extraordinary measures to hide the contents of his encounters with Putin.
& # 39; This is about the most serious counter-espionage services we have in the US government and say: & # 39; O my God, the words and actions of the president lead us to the conclusion that he has somehow become an enchanting, ignorant or half spoiled pawn, certainly in kind regards, to Vladimir Putin, & # 39; & # 39; said Bernstein.

Bernstein said that he had discovered from government sources what advice from Special Counsel Robert Mueller would say about alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election
& # 39; From a strength point of view … rather, he has done what appears to be Putin's goals.
"He helped Putin to destabilize the United States and to interfere in the elections, regardless of whether it was targeted or not, & # 39; the journalist added.
Bernstein also explained that he knew from his own high-level sources that the Mueller report would discuss this assessment.
Senator Mark Warner, the ranking Democrat of the powerful Senate Intelligence Committee, also told CNN on Sunday that the question of whether Trump was an enchanting or ignorant agent, & # 39; the defining question & # 39; is from the research of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
& # 39; You just told Trump nice things about Putin. He never spoke ill of Russia, "Warner told CNN.
"Doctrines of the republican campaigns were alleviated on Russia and their willingness to defend Ukraine was reduced."
Mueller's bombshell report is said to have said that Trump has helped to "destabilize the United States".
Trump replied to the claim that he had worked as a Russian agent last weekend saying that this was the most offensive fact that he was ever asked for & # 39;
US intelligence officials have said that Moscow has tried to lead the elections to Trump.
Russia has refused to interfere, and Trump has repeatedly said that there was no collusion between his campaign and Moscow.
But another bombast story in the Washington Post reported last weekend that Trump confiscated his translator's notes at least one of his encounters with Putin and instructed the linguist not to discuss conversations with other top officials in the United States.
"I do not like anything – I do not care, it's so ridiculous," Trump shot back in a telephone conversation with Fox New's Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night.
"Everyone could have listened to that meeting, he is open to the taking. The whole Russia thing it's a hoax, it's a total hoax, everyone knows. & # 39;
Trump personally met Putin five times since he accepted the post, and the Post claims that there is no detailed account of those meetings, not even in classified files.

Meanwhile, the New York Times claimed on the weekend that the FBI started a counter-espionage investigation or Trump acted as a Russian agent after the president had dismissed FBI director James Comey.
Comey at the time led a study of Russia's alleged interference in the 2016 US presidential election.
During an interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Saturday, Trump shot the idea that he was working as a secret agent for Russia.
A day after the New York Times filed the claim, Pirro asked Trump in an interview on Saturday night with the question: "Are you or have you ever worked for Russia? President? & # 39;
& # 39; I find it most insulting that I was asked, & # 39; Trump replied. I think this is the most insulting article I've ever written. & # 39;
& # 39; It was a big insult and the New York Times is a disaster like a newspaper, & # 39; Trump said.
