'It's Pretty Stunning': John Kerry Tells The View That Woodward's Explosive Book 'Confirms' What Washington Insiders 'Have Known' About Trump

Former Secretary of State John Kerry appeared Wednesday on The View to promote his new book and was asked about his take on the claims about President Donald Trump's administration in an upcoming book by Watergate journalist Bob Woodward.

Kerry also explained that special counsel Robert Mueller may be allowing Trump to respond in writing to some of his inquiries because he already has the incriminating evidence he needs on the president.
