Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein has accused former President Donald Trump of being "our own American war criminal" for his actions during the January 6th coronavirus pandemic and Capitol Riots.
Speaking to CNN's Brian Stelter, Bernstein said, “I think we need to take a step back and maybe look at Trump in a different context: He's America, our own American war criminal.
Stelter interrupted Bernstein and said: "You just said war criminal. What do you mean by war criminal?"
Bernstein replied: "I have. In international law there are quotations of 'crimes against humanity'." I think what we are talking about, Trump's crimes as an American war criminal in his own country that he perpetrated against our people, including the tens of thousands of people who died from his murderous negligence in the pandemic, and his own electoral interests over the health of ours People stand because it was slaughtered in this pandemic. "
