Bob Woodward is no stranger to finding his work at the center of American political scandals. After all, he played a key role in exposing the Watergate scandal which has become the gold standard for political scandals ever since.
So you can imagine he had no hesitation when it came to seeking out any shred of hope for the Democrats–sorry, I mean, evidence of collusion between the government of Russia and the Trump campaign.
His recent book, ‘Fear’, has the left-wing media gossiping like school girls, and it’s certainly full of hits against the President they love to hate.
But something is particularly absent from Woodward’s supposed impeccable investigative research: any evidence of the biggest scandal of Trump’s presidency, a scandal that, day by day, seems more and more to be a fantasy of the left’s making.
In a recent interview with Hugh Hewitt, Woodward affirmed clearly that he was unable to find any evidence of collusion or election tampering, and it certainly wasn’t for lack of trying.
Real Clear Politics reports:
“So let’s set aside the Comey firing, which as a Constitutional law professor, no one will ever persuade me can be obstruction. And Rod Rosenstein has laid out reasons why even if those weren’t the president’s reasons. Set aside the Comey firing. Did you, Bob Woodward, hear anything in your research in your interviews that sounded like espionage or collusion?” Hugh Hewitt asked Woodward.
“I did not, and of course, I looked for it, looked for it hard,” Woodward answered. “And so you know, there we are. We’re going to see what Mueller has, and Dowd may be right. He has something that Dowd and the president don’t know about, a secret witness or somebody who has changed their testimony. As you know, that often happens, and that can break open or turn a case.”
“But you’ve seen no collusion?” Hewitt asked again to confirm.
“I have not,” Woodward affirmed.

“Very last question, Bob Woodward, I just want to confirm, at the end of two years of writing this book, this intensive effort, you saw no effort, you, personally, had no evidence of collusion or espionage by the president presented to you?” Hewitt asked.
“That is correct,” Woodward said.
It’s almost as if everyone on the right has been saying this for two years.
There’s simply no evidence.
Put it to rest, once and for all.
