MSNBC’s Chris Matthews livid over Mueller report: ‘How could they let Trump off the hook?’

Posted By: JoniTx, 3/22/2019 11:09:54 PM

MSNBC host Chris Matthews expressed outrage on Friday upon hearing reports that Special Counsel Robert Mueller had completed his Russia investigation and submitted it to the attorney general -- with further indictments not expected. Matthews began his show by summarizing the breaking news, but stressed that Mueller handed his report to the Department of Justice “without ever directly interviewing the president of the United States.” (Video) “That means no charges against the president, his children or his associates after all those meetings with the Russians,” a visibly upset Matthews told his viewers. The liberal cable news host opened the discussion

And once again Matthews is feeling a wet thrill run down his leg. I have no doubt he wet himself when he realized exactly what was reported.

They didn´t let him off the hook, Chris.
They did everything they could to find a hook.
There just were no hooks there.
Never were.

But, did you hear about the Ukrainian LEOs
looking into pro-Clinton election skullduggery, Chris?

I watched Matthews tonight, as an exception to my ruler of ignoring him, and the poor guy was stuck on one point - no indictments of thew Trump family members.
It seemed not to occur to him that there were no indictments because no crimes were committed.

Mathews, you blanking MORON!

Because the President, and nobody in his campaign did ANYTHING at all remotely like "Russian collusion", that´s how.

This whole damned scam has been tiresome, and idiot partisan fools like Matthews can´t handle the truth after believing their own lies for two years.

Even though I really believe that most of these "pundits" don´t have two working brain cells...You can´t tell me that they truly believed this made up story based, on a very obvious joke made by Trump about Hillary´s e-mails. When Trump said it I had thought the very same thing.

All this proves is that if you tell the lie over and over again it becomes "truth."

Now we will see if ANYBODY in Washington has enough integrity to begin proceedings to punish those who really did collude with the Russians on the "dossier." Those within the DOJ and FBI who actively worked to overthrow the President of the United States.

Now they will start picking apart Mueller. Saying he was ´afraid´ to indict anyone on the Trump team. Or maybe Mueller too is on the Kremlin´s payroll - along with all those Hillary-loving agents doing the investigation. Sweet Dreams Chrissy.

Oh, the Humanity! Oh, the angst!

Chrissy & Media Inc., the Left, the dems, RINOs, and the Deep State flaming out, crashing and burning. This may be more entertaining than the forlorn media on election night when they realized that Trump won.

We started out saying that there was NO EVIDENCE of a crime so there was no basis for an investigation. We were right.

Consider that the charges that Mueller DID make are unrelated to the 2016 campaign, his supposed focus, except his almost farcical charges of Russians and Russian companies who may or may not even exist and certainly will never be brought to trial. Mueller should hope they don´t come to trial since the one that did made his team seem like incompetent morons. THAT is the truth in all this absurdity. These people put forth their maximum effort to GET Trump, and FAILED!

Is there one lie-beral out there anywhere who is not suffering from massive mental illness?!?!?!?!?

This investigation was there to determine if Donald Trump colluded with the Russians in the 2016 elections. After thousands of hours and millions of dollars of our tax dollars wasted on this witch hunt, the answer is clearly "no".

There is no "hook" to put President Trump on, since he didn´t do anything wrong or illegal!!!! But when you are brain-dead lie-beral hell-bent on destroying the president, those pesky "facts" just don´t mean anything!!!

President Donald Trump´s White House is asking the public to report social media companies if they suspect ´political bias´ resulted in their account being suspended or banned by platforms such as Facebook or Twitter.

Less than a day after accepting a lucrative contract to lobby congress against Russia sanctions, a former John Kasich adviser has announced he is now backtracking and will reject the agreement. John Weaver has worked on many failed presidential campaigns — John McCain’s, John Huntsman’s, and Kasich’s — and on Wednesday accepted a contract worth $350,000 to lobby against sanctions on Russia. Weaver and his former boss Kasich had previously accused President Donald Trump’s campaign of colluding with Russia to steal the 2016 election. Weaver had also previously mocked the Trump administration for being weak on Russia sanctions. Thursday afternoon,

CNN’s chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta on Thursday misquoted a portion of President Donald Trump’s immigration speech and was quickly met with a fact-check by a Breitbart News reporter. Speaking in the Rose Garden, President Donald Trump unveiled immigration reform proposals aimed at increasing the quota for skilled workers. During his remarks, the president assailed some asylum seekers’ abuses of the country’s immigration system. “Our nation has a proud history of affording protection to those fleeing government persecutions. Unfortunately, legitimate asylum seekers are being displaced by those lodging frivolous claims,” he said. Acosta promptly accused the president of portraying

Every student taking the SAT will now be given an ´adversity score´ to level the playing field between people with different social and economic backgrounds, but critics say children of affluent parents could be penalized by the new system. The scoring system was established by the national College Board, the nonprofit which administers the test, according to The Wall Street Journal. The new system will use 15 different factors to weigh a student´s adversity score, based on things such as the crime and poverty rates in the neighborhood where the teens grew up.

China’s Holdings of U.S. Treasury Securities Hit 22-Month Low 10 replies

Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities hit a 22-month low in March, according to data released today by the U.S. Treasury. As of February, entities in the People’s Republic of China had owned $1,130,900,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities. But in March that dropped to $1,120,500,000,000—a decline of $10,400,000,000. The last time entities in China owned less than $1,120,500,000,000 in U.S. Treasury securities was in May 2017, when Chinese holdings were $1,102,200,000,000. Chinese holdings of U.S. Treasury securities peaked more than five years ago in November 2013 at $1,316,700,000,000. They are now $196,200,000,000—or 14.9 percent--below that peak.

Nearly 2 of 10 Americans believe President Trump should be given two extra years in office because his agenda was stalled by the Russia election probe, and another 7 percent said he should stay in office if defeated, according to a new survey.

Disgraced former Obama administration officials James Comey and John Brennan are reportedly duking it out publicly in what for all intents and purposes looks a whole lot like a real-life performance of the hilarious Mad magazine cartoon “Spy vs. Spy.”Except the implications of this “performance” are mad real, pun intended.This real-life feud over what’s often referred to as “spygate” concerns the infamous Steele dossier. The question everybody wants to be answered is “whodunit,” i.e., which one of these two disgraced officials was responsible for elevating the fraudulent, smear-filled document into undeserved relevance.

Assembly Bill 186, which passed the Senate on a 12-8 vote, would bring Nevada into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, an agreement between participating states to cast their electoral votes for the winner of the popular vote. If signed as expected by Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak, Nevada would become the 16th jurisdiction to join the compact, along with 14 states and the District of Columbia.

Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51% of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, 43% believe it would be a good thing. Those results contrast with a 1942 Roper/Fortune survey that found 40% describing socialism as a bad thing, 25% a good thing and 34% not having an opinion.

Jerry Nadler was at it again Tuesday, waxing indignant about former White House counsel Don McGahn’s refusal to testify before the House Judiciary Committee. It’s all a show, meant to keep old news in the headlines, and to appease the large “Impeach Now!” wing of the Democratic Party without actually doing anything. Everyone on Judiciary knows perfectly well that Congress can’t compel testimony from top presidential advisers except in the most extraordinary circumstances: The chief executive’s right to frank, confidential discussions with his staff is well-established. So Nadler’s bluster about how he’ll “go to court to secure” McGahn’s appearance is just noise for the cameras. Then again, that’s all

Nadler told CNN anchor Chris Cuomo that his committee will hold McGahn "in contempt" for not complying with the subpoena and will take the battle to court.

There's a recurring theme in American science fiction where the country loses its way, endures some horrible but cleansing disaster, and then rediscovers the blessings of liberty. You'll find it in Robert Heinlein's "Future History" stories, where the Crazy Years -- a period of rapid technological advances, decaying social norms, and mass psychosis -- leads to the backlash of a religious dictatorship. The Prophets regime is eventually toppled by a liberty-loving group dedicated to individual rights. The theme is even more pronounced in Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, where a socialist regime puts the country into another Great Depression, only worse. The country's capitalists
