DOJ Pursuit Of Trump Vendetta Against McCabe Takes Odd Turn | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC 1


Rachel Maddow looks at Donald Trump's persecution of all of the officials involved in the investigation of Russia's intrusion in the 2016 election in support of Trump, and the particularly hard time the Trump administration and Trump-supporting media have given former F.B.I. deputy director Andrew McCabe, who opened the counterintelligence and obstruction of justice investigations into Trump.

  1. This is Trump sending a message to law enforcement that if you try to investigate me or my businesses, I’ll destroy your career.

    • @Sherry Burrows It’s called the Constitution.
      It is protecting a madman.

    • @Donald Martin stupid the Russians didn’t want Hillary to win……you must be a troll…Putin hated hillirey, she was for the Sanction’s on Russia

    • @Joaquin Valdez if you ever served your country. You would know how to conduct diplomacy, even with adversaries. focus on local matters that effect us all, economy, healthcare, education for children, homelessness, elder abuse, killing of babies in the womb, jobs. Democrats want power no matter what, so they stage events to keep people weak and under control, if you served your country and are disciplined you bypass a lot of hurdles because you become a productive member of society, and can stand up for yourself and defend your family, Democrats want you under their control thru your vote, dont do it , do research.

  2. Only third world countries give politicians full control over their justice departments. Investigation getting too close? Blame some faceless Dark State and fire everyone. How many other people in the intelligence community have cowtowed into line after seeing their colleagues careers and reputations destroyed? It’s pretty bad when it’s become solely the press’ job to keep the government honest.

    • Squirlly Squirl yeah your habit of extreme label branding is telling. Im not trolling. I gave you a reasoned response to what you said to me and everything you needed to do your own research. Twice. Of course you don’t want to hear what i have to say. You refuted nothing effectively and resorted to insults. Stating the facts equates to domestic violence to this camp and you always tap out and cry foul. I never directly said i was smarter than you and you could have risen to the challenge. The fact is that the progressive left formulates their beliefs on ideas that are riddled with logical incoherence and baseless assertions with a claim to legitimacy and even science itself. The claim happens to be that people who don’t agree must be stupid. Interestingly enough i have lost 0 debates and no one here can defend themselves. They operate on the assumption they have it right and are smarter than their counter parts. Which makes your statement completely hypocritical. You are calling people who disagree crazy and complain about me pointing out handily that you don’t in fact know what you are talking about? LOGICAL INCOHERENCE. Read the material. If you dont like the epochtimes find another source. Their run down is unbiased and comprehensive without emotional extrapolation. I only found it yesterday. I used to work for them between 2006 and 2013. I wasn’t actually looking at their material till about a month ago and to my surprise they took the same turn i did on politics. Like i said i’m still a democrat and actually was on hillaries side during the election cycle. My only complaint was that she didn’t have any realistic solutions for anything. Obama left me confused with his lack of results. The mask slipped i guess. The debates just now were insane btw. Did you watch? We’re in trouble here freind. You’d better get your story straight and teach others the same. History says the road ahead is dark if we dont wisen up a bit. Our education system is failing our generation and our culture is being redefined by insane ideologues who wont be reasonable and hold the highest standards of equality and fairness. The middle ground is gone and we must reinstate it now. Do your part on your end and inform yourself better. You stood 0 chance of convincing me because you had no teeth. That is the result of the disservice of the modern media

    Thank you, Andrew McCabe!

    Trump the ultimate disgrace and a danger for USA

    • @Crystal Daniels I can see your IQ is very small and leaves you blinded to what’s actually going on in this country. You keep touting that traitor and his ilk see what it gets you. Country over party puppet.

    • @skillet2250 … The only traitors are the NeoSocialists that are hijacking the former Democrat Party . Please read Article 4, Section 4 of the US Constitution and learn what type of government is guaranteed to the States

  5. The thing about those tides is they always turn, Trump will learn this the hard way.

    • Creator .. from your lips to heaven!
      Thank you.

    • @Deadbeat Donny That’s assuming the GOP and Trump plays fair in the election.

    • Ned Thumberland | September 14, 2019 at 3:41 AM | Reply

      said, “The thing about those tides is they always turn, Trump will learn this the hard way.”

      *The tides always turn…to a certain extent but never full justice. Just look at Nixon, who never spent a day in prison for the treason he committed against America by sabotaging the peace talks during the Vietnam War. Instead, he’s revered and loved by Republicans and conservatives today — at least the ones I personally know — for being a conniving, vile politician.*

    • @Trond Zaphirax I’m assuming they won’t, actually, but I’m hoping it won’t be enough for them this time.

    • P.J. McLaughlin | September 14, 2019 at 7:25 AM | Reply

      @ NPC#8675309
      Ha ha, aren’t the Clintons the epicentre of corruption? Go back to the Fox channel and spew your MAGAshit there, you fuk’n clown.

  6. Trump wants to bring this man down and the DOJ is doing what they can do to fulfill the wishes of their master…

  7. Bad karma is going to bite that orange tool *hard* in the end.

  8. Another step into dictatorship. Any resistance will end up in indictments. And the dictator cannot be indicted. The highly praised constitution is perfect for a dictator. He can do whatever he wants, he can install the judges he wants.

    • Squeakers Three | September 14, 2019 at 1:40 AM | Reply

      Your comment is incorrect. The reason for indictments is there are a bunch of people who broke lsws we have for controlling government power. Trump has not broken laws. McCabe, Comey, Brennan, and Obama AL broke laws. They think breaking the law was justified, because of how bad Trump is. A lot of people agree that breaking law is justified when it comes to Trump. The prosecutions are coming because the Attorney General disagrees with that.

    • @James Jobes What did Jesus tell you about how to treat the stranger, the traveler?

    • Squeakers Three he has broken just about every law – except shooting someone at avenue – but as he say, you would reject to admit that too

    • @Squeakers Three Actually Trump has broken laws, Tax laws, Laws governing charities, schools, rental housing, casino laws, profiteering from his government position.

    • Great point ,and you are in the light of knowledge in my opinion! And this cancer of humanity I believe (can not) be cured, we are in stage four of this illness its.
      over! ,look a American spy in Russia, a Russian spy in the
      WH, so where do this extreme governing ends ? It end with a asteroid or a major volcanic eruption that could lead to the end of humanity! Its is the only way in my opinion for a fresh start of life again! Nevertheless peace and much love to us all anyway,s.

    If you study recent Russian history, you’ll see that what is happening mirrors what happened as Putin got power almost exactly (coincidence?).   Fear monger; attack the media; fire/prosecute any government workers who don’t let you ignore rule of law; keep putting in new minions until you find ones that obey you;  get control of the justice department; and most important, have a slew of fools and the greedy who support and enable you.

    • Danny v He is president for two reasons 1) A lot of democrats did not like Hillary and did not vote 2) Some people did not know Trump and were willing to give him a chance. Now people know Trump and Americans are a freedom loving people. For reference compare the numbers of votes that Trump got in 2016 with the number who voted for Romney in 2012. All this crap about Trump leading a populist revolution is just a crap story we have told ourselves to explain the outcome of the election.

      Richard Weinberg @ FULL OF WISDOM, YOUR POST.!!!

    • Brad Burggraf @ UTTER NONSENSE.!!!!

    • Tessmage Tessera You may have to protest by the millions before his reign is over…This is not a time to be timid

    • @Common Sense A Super Power When was the last time a president was charged with a crime after leaving office? It’s called “respect for the office of the presidency”, Trump wasn’t exonerated, but he also wasn’t charged. Clinton had 11 charges, 4 where for lying to Congress, 1 was for witness tampering. Get over it, it’ll all be over in 2024

  10. Between all the golfing, rage-tweeting, and cable TV-watching, it’s alarming how effective Trump remains at dismantling democracy and the rule of law.

    • @Colin Connelly No, he’s not that smart. He has a lot of help. A lot of greedy old white guys.

    • Maybe it’s Pence doing the work – Trump is just the face on view.

    • @Tony D Ivanka’s neck is longer than Schiffs.

    • @Sheree Brandon of course they met in Trump tower to discuss adoption. Adoption – what was the outcome of that meeting? And has Trump shown his tax returns yet -I know it’s not a legal requirement – but he did promise several times.

    • @James JobesFiring one and trying to criminally prosecute another FBI director simply just for them doing their jobs. Because he doesn’t “like” the findings or for personal vendetta. That’s for starters…….

  11. Just one more thing that should be focused in on during impeachment hearings… abuse of power

    • William Stewart | September 13, 2019 at 6:48 PM | Reply

      What are a few of the other things? Oh, why didn’t your party bring it up for a full House vote? Yep, that’s what I thought.

    • William Stewart | September 13, 2019 at 6:48 PM | Reply

      Describe in specific detail how this is “abuse of power”.

    • William Stewart | September 13, 2019 at 6:49 PM | Reply

      Yvonne…Cite the top 10 examples of “abuse of power” and be specific as to how they can be described as such…unless you’re just a moronic libtwat that operates on pure emotion…like a dingy broad.

    • William Stewart | September 13, 2019 at 6:50 PM | Reply

      I’d get used to this if I were a libtwat…and I thank God every night that I am not…this isn’t the last of these.

  12. President siphoning treasury money by getting the Vice President and others in his circle to direct money to the president’s resort in violation of the constitution.

    Ten instances of obstruction of justice by a sitting president detailed in an almost 400 page special counsel report.

    President offering pardons to encourage underlings to commit future criminal acts for the president, (itself rendering the pardons unenforceable because they were in concert with the criminal actions of the president. You can’t pardon a crime which you were involved in).

    President now perusing political vendettas against people who have not actually broken the written law.

    For anyone who hasn’t been to a an failed state ruled by oligarchy or a dictatorship, Trump has officially instituted the Russian system of government in America.

    • Democrats where do u guys get ur facts

    • @Closeoutracer Obstruction of justice does not require an initial crime.

    • @Pogo Don’t worry .. McCabes criminal trial will bring the Crimes of the FBI into focus and shed light on Comey’s firing as well. You gotta wonder why confirmed Democratic goon/Mueller lead investigator Wiessman felt the need to Falsify the Testimony of atty John Dowd… More poltical desperation to manufacture ANY false charges…

  13. The next administration will investigate traitor trump and all his minions, without his interference and take them all out…we cannot let trump get by with all this BS.

    • When the democrats take the senate, I hope they remove all the partisan judges, starting with kavanot and give McCabe back his job. And any other good American who stood up against these fascist rethugs.

    • Did you take your meds?

    • @SkyGemini Let’s be honest, chances are slim that Dems are going to take back the Senate. Real slim!

      If Trump is hanging on to MSM poll at 38% and STILL be able to deliver recent NC race to the GOP, Republicans have every reason to feel confident in 2020.

      Latest Gallup Poll shows that republican support for Trump is still in the high 80s. That number hasn’t fluctuated. Trump is being smart by solidifying and expanding his base.  

      People will go with winners every time and excuse Trump’s conduct. Remember when i said republicans love dumb people.

    • SDNY and NY state should have plenty of sealed indictments waiting on him and family members.

    • @Patrick Kennedy Do SDNY report to Barr?

  14. Donald the Coward knows nothing but sneaky, vile, underhanded attacks against his perceived enemies. It never stops.

  15. It will be a great day in America when we elect our next president, he then reassembles the DOJ, and Trump gets prosecuted for all this abuse of power and obstruction of justice.

  16. 20 years of service and this is how he is treated. McCabe is being railroaded.

  17. I believe many people are protecting Trump to protect themselves. They know once he is out of office not only will he be prosecuted by he will sell them out too. Russia, Saudi Arabia, etc… they have all been lending money to Trump and lining the pockets of many senators and judges, directly or indirectly, for a long time and there are other illegal/illicit actions they all partook in which would come to the surface and literally nuke the all the politicians involved.

  18. What does it take for good to defeat this evil?

    • Stay true to the facts . Trump is enabled by Barr and Pompeo at home and abroad. Trump is now attempting to procecute a legitimate enquiry into an actions of a President who by his statements leads to believe_ Every action by Trump gives a straightforward line to action on behalf of Russia. Barr has gone quiet because at this moment he is deep in the Epstein fallout which includes the cover up of his father . Hit Barr and Pompeo to answer for their support for Trump after so many resignations .Trump has ditched people in every department of Government, why do they feel so lucky to survive? Press them to answer that question over and over again . Why are they reliant on Trump’s Base supporters for this next election, ask them why do you love Trump’s base supporters, do you feel their grievances? Ask them when they are going to be with Trump on the campaign trail .I would love to see Pompeo introduced and Barr .Like Jeff Sessions . In their baseball caps

    • Train more jedis … will defeat

  19. McCabe should be saying, “Go for it, and do it quickly! Get that grand jury impaneled. In the meantime, my lawyers will be filing a motion of spurious litigation in court.”
    Any DoJ Trumpist prosecutors and lawyers would be facing censure, fine, and possible disbarment for pursuing the case. That includes Barr, if it can be shown that he is pushing this. Trump and Barr should then also be charged in the House with (another) incident of abuse of power. This is exactly the kind of crap Nixon pulled and would have been impeached for if he hadn’t resigned.

      @Marilyn Reallon As long as Trump is President Barr and McConnell will protect him. AS soon as he is forced to leave, he is going to be bombarded on all sides with lawsuits. He may have been able to wiggle out of legal messes before but NOW he won’t be able. And None of his so-called GOP “friends” will lift a finger to help him. It will be glorious.

    • @Bruce Smith the Steele dossier affair was started by the GOP to discredit Trump. In those days they villified Trump.

    • @Domino Ryan hope so.

    • @Georgina Phillips Moscow mitch

  20. We won the Cold War only to turn into Soviet America.
