A new blockbuster CNN report from famed Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein published Monday documented his extensive findings about President Donald Trump's disturbing conversations with foreign leaders.
Though the nature of Trump's interactions with many foreign leaders has been explored before — his call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky led to his impeachment — Bernstein's reporting expands the scope of past reporting and fills in new details.
It also reveals that an apparently wide circle of Trump's aides has been and remains deeply troubled by Trump's conduct in international relations. These worries, presumably, are what prompted officials to speak anonymously to Bernstein about what they've seen and heard.
