Bob Woodward talked out of exposing Brett Kavanaugh as anonymous source by Washington Post editor: report

Woodward was reportedly set to expose Kavanaugh as an anonymous source for his 1999 book "Shadow: Five Presidents and the Legacy of Watergate." At the time the book was being written, Kavanaugh served as a lawyer on independent counsel Ken Starr's team in its investigation of President Clinton.

The revelation would have publicly contradicted what Kavanaugh said in a letter to the Post in 1999, the Times noted.


Woodward's unmasking of Kavanaugh was set to be published in October 2018, according to the Times, which added that Post executive editor Martin Baron urged Woodward to not burn his source because it would be "bad for Bob" and the newspaper itself if Kavanaugh were exposed.

During his Watergate investigative reporting and for decades after, Woodward, along with Carl Bernstein, steadfastly protected his primary source, known only as "Deep Throat." In 2005, former FBI Deputy Director William Mark Felt publicly confirmed he was the source.

1. Does anyone imagine that it would have made a difference?

If the GOP (including Fuckhead Collins) had interrupted Kavanaugh in the process of committing rape, they would still have voted him in.


Let's not pretend that something as trivial as lying to Congress is any sort of obstacle to the KKKonservative lust for power.

3. Nope. We all knew he was a snake - his supporters did too - but its always good ...

to have it all up front to keep the hypocrites among his supporters from being able to say it would have made a difference "if'n they'd only had know'd."

2. Was Woodward one of those who said Bolton should have come forward?
