Bash And Figliuzzi On Iran & Russia Seeking To Influence 2020 Election | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC


Jeremy Bash and Frank Figliuzzi join Andrea Mitchell to discuss Iran and Russia gaining access to American voter information.

Bash And Figliuzzi On Iran & Russia Seeking To Influence 2020 Election | Andrea Mitchell | MSNBC


    1. we’ve gone from ObamaGate to RudyBait in less than 24hrs. Rudy is holding his dirt for the russians and iranians.

    2. “Russia is a regional power, not a global one” Barrack Obama.
      “the 1980s called they want their cold war policy back” Obama.

    3. Did you here of BurismaHunter scam? Ya he ChinaBiden and Obummer caught red handed selling out America to China! Pieces of crap they are!

  1. Donald is very lazy! he tWeets, plays golf & watch’s Fox News all day while covid-19 is running rampant & the Economy is destroyed!

    1. @Jeremy Backup PRESIDENT TRUMP can hold 5 rallies a day meanwhile sleepy joe is hiding in a basement.

    2. @J M M PRESIDENT TRUMP has accomplished more in four years than any other PRESIDENT before him.
      Look around the streets of America and you will see the enthusiasm PRESIDENT TRUMP brings to the world

  2. A woman is driving along the beltway when traffic comes to a stop. No movement at all. The woman keeps looking out the window to see what’s going on. Finally she sees a man walking back along the road stopping at every car to talk to the driver. Finally the man gets to he car and she asks him what’s going on. the man says “Terrorists have captured the presidential limo with Trump, Don Jr and Ivanka inside. They are demanding $10 million in ransom or they will burn them alive. I’m collecting to help out”. The woman asks “How much have you collected?” The man replies”50 gallons but people are still siphoning”

    I hear they’re still accepting donations

  3. Donald tRump better hurry up & deliver his promised “October Surprise” soon cause November 3rd (D-Day-Deliverance from Donny Day) is just around the corner!

    1. @Ruth Harris Boy, that was a really lame effort wasn’t it? That didn’t convince anyone who wasn’t already a ride-or-die maga-head.

    1. Exactly. I was watching Trudeau’s presser at the beginning of the pandemic, and saw him bite his lip but refrain from comment when asked about a re-schedule of the summit. I knew. I knew the rest had already discussed it, and we were out unless someone else gets elected to office, they just didn’t want to announce it yet. That is really sad, when our warm and friendly neighbors to the north on our very safe little continent can no longer trust us. I loathe the birdbrains who voted for that lug, I really do.

    2. @Constituent A I’m neutral but Biden has many flaws from his time in politics also so why is he going to make things better?

  4. Russia is the greater danger here than sm potatoes Iran. Iran is just an attempt at a distraction while Donald gives the Green Light to Russian malfeasance!

  5. Russian trolls are all over the net. They’re trying to influence communist dictatorships and Dons in training.

    1. @Robin Beers i mean, we’ve seen this movie before. same plot, same everything. this is just all noise, seriously if there is something there, they’ve got 4 years to prosecute clinton, obama, biden, and every dem but zero. all of the indictments i know came from this administration

    2. @Robin Beers
      They’re all over the board right now and don’t seem coordinated at all. Most are at least a week behind. Still trying to make Biden/china stick even after the revelation about trump and china.

    3. Putin’s apparatus is worse than the Communists. Same lack of morality, but without the crippling ideology.

    4. The information like name, address, emails are readily available for probably million, probably a little less so since the day of the white pages and listed numbers. Having that information and access to a Google or Facebook database (which we know they open up to people advertising on the sight), you have their party affiliation just by their actions on those sights, you regularly watch MSNBC or CNN and not FOX you are a Democrat 9 out of 10 maybe 99 out of 100. You don’t need to hack voting records to bombard certain voters, it is mostly online voters since most people leave a large public fingerprint because companies like Google, Twitter, Facebook are not private.

  6. Trump is a national security threat, as well as a national disgrace.

    Trump’s business interest in communist China is long-standing. He began applying for trademarks there in 2005, and in 2012, the Trump Hotel Collection opened an office in Shanghai, its first in Asia.

    Two of the Trump Organization’s foreign partners — developers in Dubai and Indonesia, each building residential complexes that include a Trump golf course — have announced new partnerships with state-run Chinese companies. On June 10 2018,  Dubai’s Damac Properties announced that the state-run China State Construction Engineering Corp. had been awarded a contract to build roads and infrastructure at the new Akoya Oxygen. Trump will be paid to operate a golf course there, his second in the area, and paid for the use of his name.

    In May 2018, Trump’s partner in Indonesia — MNC Corp. — announced that it had signed a construction contract with another state-run Chinese company, the Metallurgical Corporation of China, for its planned Lido City development. Plans for that project, in a mountainous area of West Java, include a Trump-branded golf resort.

    The communist Chinese government granted a total of 41 trademarks to Ivanka by April of 2019. These are trademarks she applied for after her father became president, and the got approved for about 40% faster than those she requested before Trump’s victory in the 2016 election according to Forbes.

    On March 29, 2017, Ivanka became an official government employee, joining Jared as an adviser to her father in the White House. The day before that appointment, Ivanka applied for 17 new trademarks with the communist Chinese government.

    Over a span of two months in late 2018, the communist Chinese government  granted 18 trademarks to companies linked to Trump and his daughter. In October alone, China’s Trademark Office granted provisional approval for 16 trademarks to Ivanka Trump Marks LLC. The new approvals covered Ivanka-branded fashion gear, including sunglasses, handbags, shoes and jewelry, as well as beauty services and voting machines. In January of 2019, China granted Ivanka’s company preliminary approval for another five trademarks covering wedding dresses, and art valuation services. The applications were filed in 2016 and 2017.

    1. The worrying one, apart from the voting machines, is Ivanka’s imported Chinese coffins. I can’t help feel that Trump pushing herd immunity is a way of increasing her business. He pulls the people together (no masks or spacing), they vote, they get covid, they die. Father and daughter teamwork. Your misery is her profit increase.

    2. Just found out today that Ivanka got 10 million from the Saudis the same time her Crooked Traitorous Dad went to Saudi Arabia

    3. @Gerri Wright Ingerson and jared and ivanka sold their floor in trump tower to a high level Chinese official

  7. The Senate intel report revealed that during the 2016 election, Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, and Konstantin Kilimnik, a Ukrainian-Russian who headed Manafort’s office in that country, posed a ‘grave security threat.”

    Kilimnik is a Russian intelligence officer,” the report said. Manafort’s willingness to share information with Kilimnik and other people affiliated with the Russian intelligence services, it added, “represented a grave counterintelligence threat.” Kilimnik was Manafort’s right-hand man in Ukraine.

    Kilimnik rose to run Manafort’s operations in Ukraine after Manafort helped Ukrainian candidate Yanukovych win the election in 2010. When Yanukovych fled the country following a pro-Western revolution in 2014, Manafort and Kilimnik continued to work with pro-Russian Ukrainian parties and politicians.

    Kilimnik was also the main contact with the Russian oligarch Oleg Deripaska, with whom Manafort had business dealings. Kilimnik served as a liaison between the two men, and their relationship continued during the U.S. presidential elections.

    Manafort, Kilimnik and their associates took extensive measures to hide and destroy their communications, the report asserts.

    Kilimnik was born in Ukraine but attended a military language institute in Moscow from 1987 to 1992 during the collapse of the Soviet Union. The institute was linked to the Russian military intelligence agency, or GRU.

    When the full extent of Trump’s treachery, crimes, and betrayal of this country are revealed, it will be far worse than most people ever imagined.

    Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.
    And ye shall know the TRUTH, and the truth shall make you free.

  8. t’rump’s chump Ratcliffe is so unqualified that he failed miserably the first time he tried to get confirmed. It was only after the republican senate fully rolled over for the dumbest president in history that he got his seat. And no the irony that it’s for Director of Intelligence is lost on no one.

  9. Liar, liar. Pants on fire. That quote is more than apt. Trump is beyond freaking sad. How embarrassing.

    Vote!!! Biden 2020!!!

  10. The one who politicized everything that is happening is Trump.
    Ratcliffes’s announcement does not make sense when he did mention the name of “Trump” and the target of the Iranian interference is Trump, not of the Russian interference, even when he clearly confirmed that there was indeed the Russian interference in the 2016 election, yet again he did not mention who was targeted by the interference in 2016??
    He must have been prepared to mention the name Trump only and to shift the focus on to the Iranian interference from the Russia.
    Trump after all is always welcoming the foreign interferences, especially from Russia and China.

    1. Why I see so many problems with both candidates and I can’t decide? U never give me a reason to vote for joe
