Watergate journalists Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein Friday said they have concerns after the release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report, with Woodward saying the document points to a crisis in President Donald Trump's administration and Bernstein seeing it as evidence of a coverup.
"The government can't pause and take months to thrash it out, Woodward told MSNBC's "Morning Joe." "I believe from reporting that there is a governing crisis in the Trump administration."
With North Korea, the Chinese trade and tariff debate, and the immigration questions, the "Trump administration really just doesn't work [as] all the people who have more experience are gone," Woodward added. "I worry about a crisis."
And if that happens, Trump doesn't "have a strategy on any of these issues, and he does not now have a team that can work together, said Woodward.
The campaign " knew and happily welcomed" Russia's aid, he added, which means the continuing threat of Russian interference is "very real."
Meanwhile, Bernstein told CNN's "New Day" that he believes the report shows that there is "no question that this has been a vast presidential coverup" and Congress must be able to see all the facts in the document "without the kind of muddled water" that Attorney General William Barr provided with his descriptions.
"The cover-up is in the 10 or 11 areas that the special prosecutor laid out as possible or likely obstructions of justice," he added. "When you add it all up you get a picture in which the two parts of the report fuse together and it is a picture of an administration and a presidency and a campaign that crosses boundaries such as we have never seen with the possible exception of Watergate."
