Mueller Knocks Down Trump’s ‘No Obstruction’ Claim | The Last Word | MSNBC

82 Comments on "Mueller Knocks Down Trump’s ‘No Obstruction’ Claim | The Last Word | MSNBC"

  1. Mueller laid out all the evidence that Congress needs.
    Or for the SDNY once t’rump can no longer hide behind his office.
    Mueller is playing the long game.
    And either way, t’rump goes down as the crook and liar he truly is.

  2. ” Do you believe that the president can be charged with obstruction of justice after he leaves office?”
    Mueller: ” YES, emphatically YES!!”
    I bet that republican regrets asking that question. 😂😄😆

    • @Web Grep I was just suggesting you listen a few times to get the just of all the information and questions being provided over a 7 hour time frame. I’ve given my opinion in other comments so no need to continue the same conversation.

    • @mike swiental you need to test your hearing-aids.

    • @jadavision Darling .. I watched it all .. The Republican Party supports Trump 99% ..this crap is just all political .. drama all BS.

    • @Crimdor What “false premise”? Its a FACT that the russians interfered in the 2016 elections.

      @Linda Fox he should have said scrumbag on been right on point.

  3. I guess we’re gonna have to vote this loser out of office. Just sucks we have to wait 15 more months of the chaotic president. I’m deeply concerned of more Russian interference. Mueller said they are doing it again.

    • Russia’s effort will be more massive and effective than in 2016. They are 4 years more experienced and are energized by their previous success.

      @Clinton Pachingel What a patriot you are. I served my country for the freedom to vote and there’s idiots like you,commie/socialist scum, that don’t like people voting. As a DISABLED VETERAN I say to ALL to VOTE. Don’t listen to this LOSER!!

    • @Lex Gaming Have you heard of Nancy Pelosi?

    A Russian agent, a senile old man, and a criminal walk into a bar…
    The bartender asks, “What can I get you Mr. President?”

  5. EXACTLY….that is the reason why they stopped at that point…

  6. andrea Perry | July 25, 2019 at 2:06 AM | Reply

    Why, is the right question to ask. Trump wanted everyone gone who was going to look at Russian interference. He is compromised in some way.

  7. Bar trump
    Bar barr
    Baa baa trump base, mcconnell, cruz, graham, rubio, etc

    If you dont like this report, you can leave

    Reports today say these hearings were less than productive with no gotcha moment. Not so fast. There was a lot of hype prior to the hearings by the media leading people to believe this would play out like a novel turned movie.
    What we heard today was the testimony of the report from Robert Mueller himself. Republican’ts could only attack Mueller and his team on potential character flaws.
    We owe a debt of gratitude for Mr. Mueller’s life of service to this country.
    Thank you Mr. Mueller. Trump will pay for his crimes.

      Mueller was nothing more than a pond; he didn’t even know what was in the report.

    • What crimes? Still waiting.

    • @EatPlums- Fairly obvious Eat. The whole Trump Tower meeting episode was collusion or collaboration. Don Junior admitted as much. Only Teflon dad tried to cover up and lied about it. Adoptions anyone?

    Oopsie daisy – no-one is above the law. Looks like this may and should be the first President to serve time.

    • What crime?

    • Jeff Poisson trump is a known liar and con man. Dems are not desperate they’re just doing their job. Anyone in their right mind knows this criminal Aka individual 1 is not fit for office

    • @Grant Veale Stop this nonsense. Your untruth is what is dividing America. President Obama had a scandal free presidency, in comparison as to how many colleagues of Dumps have been charged or are serving time in prison. Look at the chaos in the White House, daily there is a crises, running a government is not a reality tv show.

    • @Jeff Poisson we’re not desperate. We’re just the only ones left with some sort of a moral compass. Unlike you GOPher rats who sold your souls to the bad orange man.

  10. How about? Let us show the WORLD how GREAT the USA use to be and REELECT this POS. How far this mighty country has fallen with one presidency.

    Master con man Trump said that he wouldn’t watch the hearings. However, he was tweeting fire and fury and angst throughout. The master gambler and opportunist will one day lose his mojo.

  12. If a DOJ ” opinion ” would count as law in other cases,our legal system would be screwed.How is it that opinions never really count in court,but about Trump it’s law?

  13. Mueller seemed surprisingly old and frail. I sincerely wish him an enjoyable and well earned retirement.

    There may not be collusion, but I think there is proof of conspiracy. A conspiracy takes two people or more knowing what’s going on.

    • Those two words are used interchangeably within his report. No collusion=no conspiracy

    • Collusion is just what Trump and his fools have been calling this to be able to deny it. Collusion is not a crime on any books, and was not being investigated.

      There IS proof of Conspiracy, which IS a legally chargeable crime, and Mueller said that Trump COULD be prosecuted once he loses office, as well as the who-knows-how-many obstruction charges that will be levelled at Trump and his minions.
      Once the facts are out, as so is Trump, I think that almost all of his aides will be in prison or at least charged with serious crimes.

    • @Ethan Naper Ask yourself why would a Special Counsel use a legal term and a colloquial term interchangeably in a report to Congress? Please ask yourself that.

    It´s almost funny how bizzare it is: President trump yelling “useless investigation that takes too long” while impeding it persistently by refusing (for almost a year) to sit for an interview

    • What is bizarre is you thinking, Trump not sitting down for a perjury trap, held up this witch hunt.

    • Coward, he is afraid of being interrogated by an expert, he can’t keep his big gob shut and would have incriminated himself. He is a liar and knows that he did wrong just not man enough to admit his mistakes. It’s win at all costs, cheat, steal, lie, that is his motto.

      @Devildog0166 Actually Bill Clinton did. Got him impeached, although not removed from office.

    • Jakub Veselka
      Sorry your not quite right either. Muller could have taken the same route HE CHOSE NOT TOO. Why? Maybe it’s NOT THE SAME circumstances, to issue a subpoena only to get knocked down in court would have blown his Investigation up.

    Have you ever seen a 5 year old with crumbs on his face, pretending that he didn’t get into the cookie jar?

  17. That Democrats went after the damning evidence should be no surprise to anyone. What should however, horrify everyone is that the Republicans did not want to find out anything. Their job is to represent and protect their Congressional areas and to not make efforts to find out what happened and why America is at risk from foreign interference and a President who seeks to undermine the rule of law is a dereliction of duty.

    • @mark 4ex2strong “muellor testimony was a legal trainwreck” No. It was perfectly legal testimony based on a perfectly legal investigation.

    • You do realize it was Democrats that reached out to Russia and payed money for misinformation to interfere with the election. Sorry for the facts, maybe you need to sit down?

    • Christopher Doxtator | July 25, 2019 at 11:55 AM | Reply

      Yea, we all know that excuse me for sounding condescending it is just exhausting saying “I told you so” for 2 1/2 year’s.

    • Christopher Doxtator | July 25, 2019 at 11:56 AM | Reply

      @1nquisitive ha-ha

    • @mark 4ex2strong- Rubbish. Fusion GPS did not feature in his investigation, there were probably millions of names and dates and places etc which he has read about over the last two years. Sure he would not have them all at his fingertips. It is the Republican Hysteria Squad which is obsessed by Fusion GPS and Steele and all that nonsense. Nobody else.

    As frustrating as some of these non-answers were, I take my hat off to Mueller. He answers only fact, not opinion…

  19. A brief history of 45 Presidents of United States: 👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏻👴🏾🤡

    Best thing ever happened to Nixon is Trump. Trump is the new low and we cant see the bottom yet. Brace yourselves!

    • Rep. Ken Buck, R-Col: “Could you charge The President with a crime after he left office?”
      Mueller: “Yes.”

      Rep. Ken Buck, R-Col: “You believe that he committed . . . you could charge The President of the United States with Obstruction of Justice after he left office?”
      Mueller: “Yes.”

      That’s a wrap.

      IMPEACH NOW!
      BERNIE SANDERS 2020! VOTE FOR INTEGRITY!
      THEN DICKTRAITORTRUMP IN ORANGE AND CUFFS, 2021!

    • That’s why I refer to that bouchedag as “bottom feeder”.
