Veteran journalist Bob Woodward was attending private meetings in Trump Tower. But he won’t say whether he’s meeting with the president-elect.

The journalist made famous by his reliance on secret sources during the Watergate scandal was spotted on Tuesday getting on the elevators leading up to Trump’s private suite in the lobby of the incoming president’s Manhattan skyscraper.

Afterward, Woodward said he was ‘‘visiting a couple of people’’ and would come back ‘‘to see somebody else.’’

Pressed for details, he said he agreed not to disclose details about the meetings.

Woodward said, ‘‘There’s no secrecy about it. It’s just that I’m doing my work.’’ He added, ‘‘It’s something I’m working on long term. I hope you’ll understand.’’
