‘He wants this investigation stopped’: Bernstein breaks down Trump’s end game if he leaked Sessions story

Discussing Friday’s bombshell news, journalist Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame told CNN host Anderson Cooper that the prospect of Trump leaking the story himself appears to fulfill the larger purpose of giving him justification for firing Sessions — and then firing Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.

“The president can ask for this intelligence, and it would not surprise me if he did, particularly if he is intent on getting rid of Sessions,” Bernstein said. “He’s doing everything he can to undermine him — he would like to fire him,” the veteran journalist continued. “And there is a possibility that this disclosure could give him the mechanism, as we’re talking about… to do that through a combination of recess appointments and other mechanisms.” “That’s his ultimate goal,” he concluded. “He wants this investigation stopped. Yes, he’s talking about pardons — but he doesn’t want to go there. He would like to end the investigation.”
