Carl Bernstein, one of the reporters who exposed the Nixon Watergate Scandal, is now releasing the names of 21 US Senators that “repeatedly expressed extreme contempt for [Donald] Trump and his fitness” for office.

He pointed out while many publicly have used Trump to further their own agendas, behind the scenes they have worked against him.


Bernstein said: “Many, if not most, of these individuals, from what I have been told, were happy to see Donald Trump defeated in this election as long as the Senate could be controlled by the Republicans.”

His information, he said, came from “colleagues, staff members, lobbyists [and] White House aides”.

There names are:

  • Rob Portman (Ohio)
  • Lamar Alexander (Tennessee)
  • Ben Sasse (Nebraska)
  • Roy Blunt (Missouri)
  • Susan Collins (Maine)
  • Lisa Murkowski (Alaska)
  • John Cornyn (Texas)
  • John Thune (South Dakota)
  • Mitt Romney (Utah)
  • Mike Braun and Todd Young (Indiana)
  • Tim Scott (South Carolina)
  • Rick Scott and Marco Rubio (Florida)
  • Chuck Grassley (Iowa)
  • Richard Burr (North Carolina)
    Pat Toomey (Pennsylvania)
