How Ukraine Propaganda Backfired On Trump In Impeachment Probe | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC 1


MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber debunks a paradox at the center of Trump’s impeachment probe – the conspiracy theory that Trump allies launched to help him has actually brought him closer to impeachment than any other development in the Trump era. Melber reports and fact-checks John Solomon, a writer and Fox News analyst, who emerged as the most prominent advocate of the unfounded allegations about Ukraine. Aired on 11/12/19.

  1. Oh boy did it backfire!!

  2. Poor deluded Moron-in-Chief, first to believe ANY conspiracy theory if it somehow helps his campaign…

  3. Does anyone think that t’rump wouldn’t sell out America for help in winning in 2020 again, if given the chance? And what is the price next time – China promising a fake announcement in return for a better trade deal? This is why t’rump needs to go.

    • It’s the Democrats who are selling out America. They have been since 2008, and haven’t done a minute’s work in this govenment that has not been related to deposing Trump. The rest of the world is laughing at you.

    • Trump is the SWAMP THING selling out America at His Palace @ 1100 Pennsylvania Ave. Terrible times ahead.
      newly elected Democratic majority was sworn in to the House, progressive lawmakers are tackling many of their priorities through legislation.

      But few of those bills are seeing traction in the GOP-led upper chamber, with many ending up in what Democrats have labeled the Senate “graveyard.”

      Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has boasted about the pattern, promising to be a “Grim Reaper” for progressive policies in the Senate if the GOP hangs onto the chamber in the next Congress.

      “We’re very proud of the work that we have done to send over to the Senate, where Mitch McConnell has said he’s the ‘Grim Reaper’ – it’s a Senate graveyard,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told reporters earlier this month. “We have news for him: It’s alive and well in the public, and he will be hearing from the public, hopefully very soon.”

    • @Mike M nope. wrong, wrong, wrong on it failing. it did what it was supposed to do in a republic which we have always been. you are referencing a democracy, which we have never been. im sorry you are too stupid to comprehend that 6 counties would determine every election in the past 50 years or so and would literally make the rest of the u.s. irrelevant to vote. those 6 counties also happen to be the richest and would be a great way to ensure that middle america gets steam rolled by big city policy makers whom know nothing of rural life. it also forces those seeking elections to win votes across the country and not just in 6 counties. you’re a moron. sincerely, someone not as dumb as you.

    Everything that Trump touches dies..

  5. Hannity and his guests live on a different planet that’s why they don’t have enough oxygen in their brains!!!
    Congratulations 👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿

    • Your dumb the left want your rights and are fake not for this country and all you dumb Democrats aren’t going to win most will be dead if this keeps going because civil war will destroy you and them and the great American people that Biden is a fake corrupt person

    • @hans haslang All you have are ad hominem attacks.

    • James Ramsier
      Ad hominem attacks? So you actually think 2 years of breathless nothing burgers on Russian collusion is a good thing? You ate it all up every night, did you. It’s surprising that you have any brain cell left, moron

    • james mack
      Can’t even spell uneducated, but claims to be educated. Priceless.

  6. Well he kept saying he was making history… Once he’s impeached, he will be.

    • @Jonny Sevent think about it. We know all the names of the whistle-blowers. Obama trashed whistle-blowers in the media and called the traitors. So it depends on the situation.

    • @Kevin NYC- ” Obama trashed whistle-blowers in the media and called the traitors” When? When was this? I don’t recall that.
      Obama, Hillary, Obama, Hillary, Obama, Hillary. Jeez. You people need to get some therapy.
      Why do you think the whistleblower is relevant anymore? It doesn’t matter now because everything in their complaint has been held up to be true. And surely you are not so stupid as to not understand why we don’t reveal the names of whistleblowers.

    • Love this. How much “the walls are closing in” nonsense are you going to take? The MSM is literally your abusive boyfriend telling you “I’ll never hit you again my dear, I swear”. Jesus, f’ing Christ you people are 1000 times beyond pathetic.

  7. Trump: “I never actually said the word favor. What I said was, por favor, which is totally different from favor. A lot of people don’t know this.”😂

  8. That folks, is whats called journalism..hats off to Ari.

    • @princeoftidds oh never, i heard from a friend who was told by his co-worker. you know, like how they’re trying President Trump? So if they can circumvent what the constitution has written based on hearsay, I can be a journalist. Your fallacy is invalid.

    • @dillon cihak Trump already admitted to everything their investigating but if my “fallacy is invalid”, I’m sure don’t not have nothing to be concerned about.

    • @princeoftidds because what their investigating is that he made a phone call, the ukraine and him had a few conversations and visits, nothing impeachable happened, ukraine got some aid, and that was it. Yes he admitted to doing his job.

    • I stan a Jay-Z and overall hip-hop fan who is bang on with his factual reporting! 👊🏻

  9. Thank you, Ari Melber! Where would we be…without you!? Each little tidbit on this ridiculous dramedy regurges that old dumb and dumber lyric.

  10. They put so much effort into this. And look what it lead to…impeachment…hopefully JAIL

  11. I really hope Giuliani goes to prison. He deserves it.

      Jonny Sevent such a corrupt country – who knew! Politics has always been dirty but this is in the gutter! The bottom of the swamp! Swamp creatures!

    • @Inthe Far-queue
      Hey Bub, you make as much sense as Russian Radio , Here’s a Tidbit you can Rail against an Shout FAKE NEWS about . Break away little 🐑
      “The simple minded often TALK the Loudest ”
      At the halfway mark of President Donald Trump’s first term, his administration has hired a lobbyist for every 14 political appointments made, welcoming a total of 281 lobbyists on board, a ProPublica and Columbia Journalism Investigations analysis shows.

      With a combination of weakened rules and loose enforcement easing the transition to government and back to K Street, Trump’s swamp is anything but drained. The number of lobbyists who have served in government jobs is four times more than the Obama administration had six years into office. And former lobbyists serving Trump are often involved in regulating the industries they worked for.

      Trump TownTracking White House staffers, Cabinet members and political appointees across the government

      Even government watchdogs who’ve long monitored the revolving door say that its current scale is a major shift from previous administrations. It’s a “staggering figure,” according to Virginia Canter, ethics chief counsel for the D.C.-based legal nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. “It suggests that lobbyists see themselves as more effective in furthering their clients’ special interests from inside the government rather than from outside.”

      We tracked the lobbyists as part of an update to Trump Town, our database of political appointees. We’ve added the names of 639 new staffers with the administration and the financial disclosures of 351 political appointees who have filled different positions over the past year, and we tracked the careers of 338 who departed government during the same period.

      The full extent of the lobbying industry’s influence is hard to measure because federal agencies decline to share details of recusals granted to officials who disclose potential conflicts with their new government roles.

      Stay Informed. Get ProPublica’s Daily Digest

    • @BeBop Aloola You’re doing a LOT of talking.

    • @BeBop Aloola good info. Though

    • @Kevin NYC
      Your Correct Kevin, The Redumbicans talk more Disinformation & False Narrative than those Freaking Q-anon & 4-Chan WEIRDOS . Just more Fodder to keep the Cult frothing at the mouth.

  12. Hannity needs to be in these hearings under oath. It’s time Jouralism is justified. It’s time to unfake news.

    • @James Jones Nope! You got that wrong. Counter-fit News Network and (P)MSNBC hold that title!

    • Hannity is not a journalist, so he’s not held to the same standard.

    • @celtic journey Perhaps you are not aware that Fox was sued for calling itself “news” – and Fox lost. The sad state of affairs that exists these days, after 40 years of delusion and misinformation at Fox, is that we have hitler-wannabes in office trying to push the claim that they are all fake (and suggest Fox is just as ‘good’ as any other). Some people in office right now actually believe the extreme right conspiracy crap. Looks like you fell for it too, to some extent. Fox=BS!

    • @Barbara McCormack Real news doesn’t need to pick sides, it impartially reports the news, something the MSM has forgotten in its race for brownie points from the Democrats.

  13. Happy Impeachment Eve everyone !!!

  14. trumps presidency has been paralyzed by egregious ignorance, unmatched arrogance, and monumental graft and corruption.

    • Sounds like the last administration.

    • @john patterson Unless you actually want to be truthful here…..The FBI, even Comey, who should have been fired for his violation of the Hatch Act, stated clearly that Hillary Clinton broke NO laws and did NOT lie to the FBI. Turn off the faux entertainment channel ….. it’s cutting into the far more intellectually challenging repeats of WWF.

    • @K H
      What I saw and heard was YES Hillary broke laws = A criminal .

  15. It would be the height of delicious irony if this administration were brought down over a piece of fake news.

  16. Trump’s idea of “winning” is to “lose, file a bankrupcy, then do it all over again. ”

    Think about that.

  17. Great segment, Ari. Unfortunately, those that need to see this and understand this most likely won’t and if they did, I doubt they would be able to understand it. Sad.

    • @neal thailand Thank you the argument against impeachment. You are confident Burisma is a criminal enterprise connected to a convicted mobster. Hunter Biden seems a perfect choice for the board. Well done. So much for ‘debunked’ allegations.

    • All the trump allegations against Biden *HAVE* been debunked. Hunter wasn’t on the board at the time of the threat of withholding the Billion in aid. Trump’s debunked claim is that the prosecutor was removed to stop his (non existent) investigation of Hunter. The fact that the dirty prosecuter was removed *BEFORE* hunter arrived pretty well proves the trump/rudy lie is “fake news”, even to the slow on uptake like yourself.

      The GOP senate intel committee has debunked the *other* trump/rudy lie, that it was Ukraine, not Russia that hacked the DNC.

      And sorry you have reading comprehension issues. Burisma *WAS* under the thumb of a Mob Boss named Firtash and the prosecutor he “owned” outright, but Joe Biden actually had the protecting prosecutor removed, and the mob controller is under arrest in Austria.

      Burisma is now a less corrupt enterprise than the trump white house. But the trump/rudy plan would reinstall Fritash *BACK* in control of Burisma, and would have, had not the beginnings of impeachment inquiry started (trump didn’t stop his illegal “hold” on the 400 million until *AFTER* the IG report went to congress spelling out his blackmail scheme).

      The only thing Hunter/Joe Biden are guilty of is “nepotism” (just like Donald J Trump/Ivanka are). But if we’re going to prosecute the Biden’s for that (which i’m fine with), of *course* donnie and Ivanka should be brought up on the exact same charges. I’m *SURE* you agree with *that* , right?

      You’re slow on the uptake, so I’m not sure how you get “hunter Biden had the benefit of nepotism, so this excuses trump’s illegal blackmail of the sitting Ukrainian president.”

      Please do explain *THAT* leap of illogic, OK?

    • Bradley Skaggs Kent has admitted in his testimony to the “no prosecution list”. Solomon has uncovered emails from Burisma to our state dept asking for help because they were being investigated for corruption. Educate yourself

    • funny how Biden contacted CNN and told them to not have rudy giuliani on anymore ,

  18. It’s so ironic how Hannity’s ratings are fueled by conspiracy theories, and those conspiracy theories are circling back around to seal Trump’s doom.

    • Brian Nau
      Hannity just want to go down with the ship name S.S.TRUMP. Better known as Dump.

      It looks like hannitys conspiracy theories arent so much theory now.”wolf blitzer .Fbi official under investigation for changing documents in fisa warrant ” man you need to buy your mind back from cnn.

    • @Brett Pechatsko How could it be a conspiracy if it was just one guy?

  19. Andrew Orahoske | November 13, 2019 at 2:30 AM | Reply

    When is Hannity going to be investigated? He is in all of this up to his neck! What did Cohen do for him?

  20. It’s sad that cultists are so easily misled. Stupid people believe anything.

    • Rod Allen
      You and six stupid people share a fantasy link, ummm I’ll take what I see in real time fool, Roger Stone just got indicted.

    • gce2308 Elwood
      And tell Noah that animals eat other animals so…

    • @Remy Wood That’s OK bro. I should be more specific in my rants. Thanks for understanding.

    • @hg xob I do appreciate your sincerity. However this will come to a conclusion that neither side could foresee. God Bless America and hopes for
      some form of solidarity for our Country, hopefully. Biden’s, Trump, and co- conspirators on both sides, no one’s hands are clean.
