Bob Woodward told Mike Allen that there would need to be tapes or other dramatic new evidence as “propellant” before impeachment of President Trump became realistic.
Said Woodward: “There will be a pursuit for new evidence, tapes, testimony, as there should be. But it takes a critical mass get a president out of office. It happened with Nixon because of the tapes. You had a quality of evidence that does not exist in the Mueller report and the Trump case… Now, that could change this afternoon.”
He added: “I don’t know whether notes can do it. Because what shocked the country about Nixon wasn’t just the actions, but playing those tapes and hearing the language. Hate ruled the story, and people saw the hate.”Save to Favorites
