Contradicting Trump, DOJ Report Finds Russia Probe Was Justified | MSNBC 1


The DOJ Inspector General’s report rebuts President Donald Trump’s depiction of the investigation of his campaign as a politically biased plot against him. The report concluded the FBI and DOJ were justified in launching their probe because of evidence the Russian government was trying to infiltrate the Trump campaign as part of its efforts to influence the election. Frank Figliuzzi joins Nicolle Wallace to discuss. Aired on 12/9/19.

  1. Incoming insults from Trump against the IG … I’m going for “never trumper” !

    • @swish1onu
      ” Mueller report, exonerates Trump…”
      mueller agrees can not exonerate presedent

      it’s amazing you’ll try lying straight out
      when right here is the world wide web
      not everyone is as gullible as you dude

    • @swish1onu ha ha ha mueler said he did not exonerate your master he in fact said if thet found individual 1 was innocent of committing a crime they would say so they did not say so moron they instead listed 10 counts of obstruction of justice and you morons eat up every lie your master spews over 14000 of them

    • @Rabble Wolf2 hours ago
      The facts didn’t play the way Trump wanted, but Barr is willing to spin the fu*king sh*t out of himself, like a Russian ballerina on large quantities of speed for the orange cry baby.

      Such colorful, yet meaningless, language.

  2. I believe that’s republican defense of Trump number 27, being shot down here…
    I’m sure number 28 has got to be the magic number, right?

  3. I don’t think Barr is going to be happy…. now time to open a investigation into the IG for his investigation.

  4. The IG Report:Another of the Trump-Barr major episodes of flatulence has been disinfected.

    • The courts indicted the DOJ about a month ago and just a few days ago, the courts REJECTED THE FBI to conceal Hillary’s e-mails…. SO YOU SEE HOW MSNBC likes to spin this…. THIS IS ALREADY IN THE COURTS SYSTEM FOR MONTHS NOW….

    OBAMA: “we don’t negotiate with terrorists”. TRUMP: “We fell in love.”

  6. William Barr is a disgrace and only seems to be working for Trump and Putin. Trump and Barr are a clear and present danger to America’s national security and democracy. Every single patriotic American politician should be livid with their behavior to undermine our nation’s best interests

  7. Most baffling part of this to me is the Redhats would rather further betray the country than just admit they got it wrong with 45.

      They can’t because their identity is tied to the liar in chief. Their whole world view is based on the premise that trump is their knight in shining armor coming to save us all from “the deep state”

      Joey Starrett no, you just inserted your own delusions and alternative facts

    • @DAngelo Del-Gado That sounds like something a Russian would say.

    Stephen (low Ethics) Castor, will go down in History that he sold out the American people (Confused loyalty) in todays Impeachment Inquiry, No-Loyalty-Trump, will throw him under the bus when Castor is no longer useful.

    So that’s what the fringe right has been relying on, screaming that it would turn the tables on Democrats? Now watch the Treason Party claim that it proved everything they were saying.

  10. 0:37 – Of course. Anybody who Trump doesn’t agree with is a traitor.

  11. Attorney General and this administration is wasting a lot of taxes payer money, by multiple investigation, and keeping investigation going until they find someone that says what they want to hear, if nothing else impeach because of all the controversy that surrounds this administration, this administration is consuming tax payers money and time.

    • Remember this impeachment that may or may not be coming is not about how we feel about President Trump. Keep your eyes on the numerous crimes he continue to commit on a daily basis.

      @Linda Church I would politely disagree. Public sentiment affects politicians, influences voting.
      If enough voters and citizens can pressure Congress, the elected representatives will be swayed.
      This is not a trial process in a court of law. And may heaven help us.

      That’s the prize of civilization.

    • Wait For The Durham Report…That Is The One Doing The Real Criminal Investigation.

  12. He needs to be stopped, get fired and be removed from the office 😤

  13. Wait… I thought we were trying to investigate oranges. What’s all this talk about origins?

    This is what grifters do they know what they do so they just blame somebody else or something else

    • The courts indicted the DOJ about a month ago and just a few days ago, the courts REJECTED THE FBI to conceal Hillary’s e-mails…. SO YOU SEE HOW MSNBC likes to spin this…. THIS IS ALREADY IN THE COURTS SYSTEM FOR MONTHS NOW….

    • @Joy Phillips knowing how Trump likes to grade stand , and all about him self . Don’t you believe if he were innocent he would have Bolton and the rest of his Yes Men on TV in front of the world . You know Why ! Clinton isn’t president Trump is .

    I guess the FBI was shocked they never encountered anything like this from an American president at first they probably did make a few mistakes but that don’t change the facts

  16. The orange pus-bag and friends are traitors.

    • In August, another federal court judge rejected FBI efforts to protect of the privacy of Clinton spy Christopher Steele and ordered the FBI to conduct a search for certain records about Steele’s work with the FBI during the Mueller investigation.
      “Two federal courts have now rejected the FBI’s desperate attempts to hide the details of its anti-Trump conspiracy with Hillary Clinton’s Fusion GPS-FBI spy operation. Why is Director Wray allowing the corrupt cover up the FBI’s Russiagate collusions with the Clinton gang?”

      Judicial Watch previously obtained heavily redacted copies of FISA warrants used by the Obama-era DOJ to spy on the Trump campaign, which seem to confirm the FBI and DOJ misled the courts in withholding the material information that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC were behind the “intelligence” used to persuade the courts to approve the FISA warrants that targeted the Trump team. One of the FISA warrant renewals was granted in June 2017 and did not expire until September 2017, some eight months after President Trump assumed office.

      Nadler , Pelosi and the like are all traitors. You should go to California and start a socialist $hithole country. They’ve got a really good start. 👍 👍

    • Socialism is not the opposite of Dump Trump.

    • @trainwreck told ya so i guess you like a directorship it is going to happen under Trump just matter of time we will call United of Russia

    So what you’re saying is that AG Barr, Trump and his administration have been lying to the American people. 🙄. No kidding..


    • The good old boy net keeps up the cost to taxpayers! they should pay us back!

    • @Lon T ….I can see you have a limited level of EDUCATION. To throw insults at someone usually means you struggle to find the right answers to lifes many questions. President Trump’s goal is to return Washington back to the People. Americans should not have to fight the battles of Islam, nor should Americans have to fill the pockets of the Chinese with American dollars. We should not be aborting more Black American Babies than are born alive because Pelosi says we can.

    • B.J Cameron Is that what you think is happening? We don’t do mandatory abortions in this country.

    • @B.J Cameron You live in a parallel world, so distorted it is barely recognizable.
      Trump carved up Washington and gave it to his billionaire cronies. There have never less “regular folks”, never been more billionaires in the government as now, never as many Goldman Sachs people. Wheeling and dealing for their own benefit and you don´t even know about it. Do you want a list? Hint: last one is Richard Perry cutting a sweet deal for his bosses (his donors) on Ukranian oil. The man you believe is for “the little man” has been screwing you from day one.

      What battles of Islam are you talking about? You mean Syria? Keeping a nominal force positioned so that two allies who hate each other could fight ISIS instead of getting at each other´s throat, is that what you refer to? You were not fighting their battles, you were fighting ISIS by proxy.

      And Americans can buy from whoever they want, they do not have to buy Chinese, you know? It´s called capitalism. You choose from whom to buy.

    Looks like Barr is the only guy Trumps got in his pocket at the DOJ.

      @Tom Waddle Like the second coming of Christ huh? Overdue, but coming right?

    • @Speak only facts Hey Speak…More HATE from you libturds huh? — so here’s a verse for you to lose your mind over…”Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, 
        And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. 
      For this they willingly are ignorant …”

    • @Speak only facts Hey Speak….here’s a fact for you….TRUMP WON and your hillbilly HILLARY LOST.

      @Tom Waddle This song is for you Tommy. I know you wish it was Obama in this pickle, but it’s not. Enjoy,
