Pres.Trump, Advisers Face Mounting Pressure To Justify Soleimani Attack Intel - Day That Was | MSNBC 1


President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that no lives were lost after Iran fired ballistic missiles at two Iraqi bases housing U.S. and coalition forces overnight. Trump said the U.S. would add new sanctions on Iran, but seemed to seek de-escalation. Meanwhile, Trump and his advisers are facing more pressure to provide justification for the airstrike that assassinated Iranian Gen. Soleimani. Senators and congress members found a Wednesday intelligence briefing to be wholly insufficient. Aired on 1/8/20.

      @Joshua Miller the house impeached the president. pelosi is not transmitting the articles of impeachment to the senate where a trial is constitutionally mandated because the leader of the senate, mitch mcconnell, has publicly said he will not be impartial and will allow zero witnesses to testify. how many trials do you know of where the jury publicly says they’ll be impartial and where no witnesses are allowed to testify?

    • @Carter Mushrooms the house didnt allow any witnesses either u dumass

      @Alice Wonderland No, it doesn’t. Get a job and hold it long enough to get insurance and work for it like every normal person does and has done for 50 years!

      @Jackie Treehorn I’ve already done that you fool. You are out of touch (and without compassion apparently). People with jobs and insurance still cannot afford medical costs. Come down from your Ivory Tower, oh Lucky Man.

      @Alice Wonderland wow, you are ok with foreigners killing Americans? Believe you should just stay in Wonderland. You really are not for this world.

    Remember when MSNBC and establishment media supported the war in Iraq?

    Pepperidge Farms remembers.


      @Robert Presley yeah and we should stand against I was only making the point that instead of having fake outrage against the media to act as a distraction we need to focus on the fact ok that it’s a new decade but the same old s**t Republicans are once again trying to get us involved in another middle East war

      You – Have you ever heard of punctuation, LOL.

      MSNBC promotes wars on the regular. My comment is to highlight that fact.

    • Dan Alexander | January 9, 2020 at 1:06 PM | Reply

      You also, I have no comments in this thread longer than two sentences. You want a space between each sentence, LMFAO?!


      @Dan Alexander fox is worse

      THE CONFEDERACY WAS THE ORIGINAL SHITHOLE COUNTRY – So, it’s permissible for MSNBC to be a bunch of warmongering corporatists because Fox News is worse.

      I wonder why Trump was elected POTUS. 🤔

  6. World War averted, let’s find out why.

    And for my next trick, I’ll make them defend a proven known terrorist!!! Believe it lmao

    • @Dane Mart Its clearly Mueller report because he done the investigation. He was tasked by Rod Rosenstein to investigate the Russian meddling in our election. If its not his report then why does it called the Mueller report then. It is Mueller duty to investigate and turn in the report to Barr the AG. Barr and Rosenstein came to the colusion that their was no Russian collusion but there was obstruction on Trump team. I don’t understand why you keep bringing up the FBI doing anything wrong when Barr IG investigate the FBI and found no wrong doing by the FBI. What is your opinion in Russia meddling in our election? I hope you not okay with any foreign country especially Russia trying to tear down our democracy.

    • @tonykeo83 I am not sure where this is going or coming from. I never said that the Mueller report was not Mueller’s report. I said that Mueller, himself, said that he was not tasked with making a determination of wrongdoing. His job was to present the facts to congress. You can find him saying this during his appearance in front of Congress. Russia did meddle in our elections and no I am not ok with it. If you have been paying any attention to my posts, I am for America first. The Mueller Report also says that they did not care who won the election. So I find it fascinating the love affair that the leftist media has with calling Trump a Russian agent. The report clearly shows that they were not trying to get Trump elected. They only wanted to cause division within the American people. They have clearly done that. Now the media blames the division on trump. The Russians divided the country not Trump.

    • @Dane Mart Clearly we can’t change each others mind on Trump and the Mueller report. You say tomato, I say potato.

      @Katusov Katusov you are. barbara lee has had a bill to revoke those powers for 20 years. you keep bringing up obama when he has nothing to do with the current situation. you’re carrying water for republicans.

  8. What did Hillary say about bombing another sovereign nation in revolution during the Obama administration?

  9. This report was a joke.

  10. let me guess….another investigation

  11. “Now everyone upset”

  12. REALLY even though he was BANNED BY THE UN from traveling outside of Iran because of his terrorist activities?!

    Trolls here with unfounded attacks, so pathetic.

    • Ned Labarbara | January 9, 2020 at 9:55 AM | Reply

      You are indeed pathetic. Everyone smart enough to not believe the garbage and join your cult of stupidity is a troll.

    • Those that still remain under the nazi mind control of the left is whats pathetic. Just look where all the fake accounts are. Nobody is left but fakes and those who wish to deceive us.

    • Wheatie Sweetie You mean the 99% of us calling MSNBS fake news? You’re the 1% who believes their proven lies. That’s just sad.

  17. “Respect for our institutions”? Like you have ANY room to speak! Looser.

  18. “The quality of our Intelligence”?? Yikes.

  19. Maddow should just grow a moustache and end the confusion.

  20. I have a feeling, when these senators start losing their seats one by one, they’ll start eating each other alive.
