President Donald Trump Directly Involved In Whistleblower Complaint | The Last Word | MSNBC

    1. @Dave Schultz Nah, I already have spoken to them. They and the House are collecting possible troll ID’s to follow because of the upcoming election. You and your ilk are posting verifiable lies in an effort to subvert our Constitution. They care about that and are actually viewing you tube themselves. My SS just brings you to their attention, then they do the actually investigation into your motivations.

    2. Nobody is surprised. Trump has taken away our ability to be shocked.
      It doesn’t mean we’re not angry, not keeping score.

  1. If the President has committed an act of treason (or some other seriously illegal act that puts the nation at risk) the Congressional Intelligence and Senate Intelligence Committees have a right to that whistle-blower’s information. In fact, they have a duty to demand it and the Supreme Court has a obligation to back up that demand.

    1. BUT FAKE NEWS IS JUST MAKING ALL THIS UP DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND? YOU WATCH FAKE NEWS AND BELIEVE IT’S REAL JOURNALISM. IT’S NOT. PEOPLE IN A BOARD ROOM MAKE IT ALL UP BECAUSE MAIN STREAM MEDIA IS AN ARM OF THE DEM SOCS. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? TRUMP’S THE GREATEST LOVER OF AMERICA SINCE LINCOLN.

    2. THIS IS APRESIDENT WHO LOVES HIS COUNTRY WITH ALL HIS HEART. THE TREASON THING IS A MADE UP FAKE NEWS STORY TO TRY TO DESTROY HIM BY PEOPLE LIKE YOU WHO HATE AMERICA.

    3. xuebaiqiang …not forgetting, though, the “….shall not be subject to judicial review…” provision….

  2. If Trump is involved, two things are for certain. First, there is dirty money for Trump involved. Second, whatever Trump has done will be according to what benefits Putin, not the United Stats.

    1. @Mainely haha please. I challenge you to find me just one person in this country who changed the vote due to facebook ads. Oh btw if russian bots are such a dangerous threat to our election, why dont you tell us why its ok for hilary to purchase a dossier filled with lies and disinformation that absolutely effected this country. The dossier that while unverified, was used as the foundation of a made up witch hunt aimed at framing and spying on american citizens

    1. @Justin
      If one coukd affird it under tge Trump economy one coukd have under past one’s also. Prices NEVER go down significantly from their past but stay the same or rise.

    2. @Arthur Anderson price is irrelevant if people dont have jobs. And under the trump economy unemployment is at a 50 year low. Under obama, unemployment hit an all time high, along with basically no growth in gdp. Remenber when obama said 2% annual gdp growth was the new normal? Trump is averaging 3% or higher thus far.

    1. Helzapoppin   ……….  That SHOULD happen . We’re so beyond ‘normalcy’ and actual LAW ( with criminals controlling the institutions ), that it more likely will redound to #Maquis holding our own independent and summary ‘courts of justice’ .

    1. A horse with no name he’s your president too. I wasn’t much of an Obama guy, but I never displayed the rabid vitriol towards him that idiots like you display towards Trump. Yup, choose to ignore and use buzzwords that’s all you got. Take the L and shut up..

  3. How much longer until MBS demands trump either invade Iran or pay back all those secret Saudi loans?

    1. @Luis Valentino I love our great leader more than any man alive. he’s been so good for our country and will win in a landslide in 2020 then we’ll elect Don Jr in 2024

  4. Trump must stop from using his tweet; or discuss important matters between the U.S and its allies. He’ll endanger the lives of American assets around the world as he’s a paid Russian and Saudi asset… im just saying..

  5. Trump spoke to Putin about Siberian wildfires, just like DJTJ spoke to Russia about adoption. Riiiiiiight.
    Trump is corrupt to his core, a traitor to America, and a con man, who lies to us all, everyday, about everything. He’s reckless and dangerous. Enough is enough!

    1. IT’S ALL FAKE NEWS AND YOU BELIEVE IT. WHAT’S IT LIKE TO BE BRAIN WASHED BY MSNBC AND CNN WHICH HAVE REPEATEDLY HAD TO APOLOGIZE FOR FAKE NEWS!!!

  6. He takes foreign policy advice from Saudi Arabia, Kim, Putin and Netanyahu. He jokes about America’s democracy and institutions with the Russians. He’s constantly running America down, spends 1/3 of his time playing golf, vacationing and holidaying, the rest of the time he’s raiding and rorting the American people, taxpayers and its institutions.

  7. I hope it wasn’t at the expense of lives! How do you sleep at night if you’ve caused harm to another human being = even if they’re bad people – a life is a life! Could this be why Pompeo and Graham want to start a war? To protect Trump which, in turn, protects them and their agendas – it’s obvious they’re egging Trump on to stay in office to get their agendas completed. Stroke Trump’s ego and you get what you want!

  8. Putin has made a laughingstock out of the so-called president; the so-called president has made a laughingstock out of the American people, especially the Republicans.

    1. @Cameron Moore Mueller describes the 2016 Russian campaign in some detail. The Russian 2020 campaign in progress will be immeasurably larger. Putin is happy and wants the 4 more years.

    2. @mac2phin YOU’RE SO DUMB YOU’RE NOT WORTH ANSWERING. IT WAS OBAMA AND HITLERY WHO COMMITTED TREASON, LIBERAL TURD. BUT YOU WATCH FAKE NEWS MADE UP BY DEMOCRATS SOCIALISTS LIKE YOUR SELF WHO HATE AMERICA AND WANT TO DESTROY IT. YOU’RE A LOWLIFE. CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU CRY AGAIN IN 2020.

  9. It certainly seems like Trump picked the correct person to be acting DNI, in order to aid and abet Trump’s traitorous plans.

    1. REAL AMERICANS LOVE OUR GREAT LEADER. OBAMA AND CLINTON ARE THE REAL TRAIOTRS AS HAS BEEN PROVEN. BUT YOU WATCH FAKE NEWS SO YOU’RE UNAWARE.

  10. People are too comfortable with living their daily lives because none of Trump’s underhanded dealings are directly affecting them. The problem is when it’s gotten to the point where all start to feel it, changing it will be too late and fixing it might be impossible because of the shifts of powers on the world stage and our place in it.

    1. Agreed, maybe thats why Pelosi has been foot-dragging on Impeachment. It won’t be long until the GOP will run for their lives away from Trump – otherwise they would look like conspirators (some are IMO), and once Trump and Pence are left powerless, no one will be left to protect the guilty.

    2. @Alfred Kemp Actor Reel correct but only a small number of people like farmers, factor workers etc are affected now. But I’ll work this week and the next dealing with my everyday things not affected by what Trump is doing now, but the undermining of our democracy, the attack of the rule of law and shady dealings with foreign leaders will eventually hit us all. And that will be Americans collectively not groups individually.

  11. Traitor Trump. He is a Russian asset, just as he is for Saudi Arabia, N. Korea and Israel. He is a clear and present danger to the USA and much of the world.

    1. @tom smith I suspect you’re the one watching “fake news”. Trump’s transgressions are available for all to see such as his criminal activity in N.Y. state. He breaks the Emoluments Clause on a daily basis. There is much, much more. He is a con man and nothing more.

    2. @James Dunn YOU’RE BRAIN WASHED LIBERAL TURD. YOU WATCH THE NETWORKS CONTROLLED ENTIRELY BY THE DEMOCRAT SOCIALISTS WHO WANT TO DESTROY OUR COUNTRY. YOU ARE WITH THEM SO YOU ARE A TRAITOR AND YOU KNOW THE RESULT OF THAT.

    3. FURTHERMORE YOU DO KNOW THAT IT WAS ACTUALLY HITLERY WHO WAS IN COLLUSION WITH THE RUSSIANS, DON’T YOU? SHE DELETED HER 33,000 FROM PUTIN, REMOVED THE SIM CARD, ACID WAHED THE PHONE WITH BLEACH BIT AND THEN HAD AN AID SLEDGEHAMMER THE PHONE INTO A DOZEN PIECES. ALL THIS AFTER SHE WAS SUPOENIED BY CONGRESS. YES SHE WILL GO TO PRISON AS SOON AS BAR GETS TO HER. YOU WATCH FAKE NEWS WHERE DAN RATHER WAS FIRED FOR LYING ABOUT BUSH, LARRY O’DONNELL JUST RECENTLY APOLOGIZED FOR HIS FAKE NEWS, LYING BRIAN WILLIAMS WAS DEMOTED FOR HIS LIES AND DON LEMON SAID THE PROBLEM WITH AMERICA IS WHITE MEN AND SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE WITH THEM. YOU ARE SO STUPID YOU SHOULDN’T BE ALLOWED OUT OF YOUR MOMMY’S BASEMENT. TRUMP WILL WIN IN A LANDSLIDE IN 2020 AND DONJR WILL WIN IN 2024. WE LOVE TO MAKE YOU SNOWFLAKES CRY!!

    4. @Gracey Phillips it is easy to make general statements without quantifying anything, then pretend to back up your claims with insults or shame to others who don’t agree with you. Is that America? You bring up the constitution, so you should learn it and embrace it. Try not to let others tell you how to interpret it. The US justice system works on the presumption of innocence. You accused Trump of creating violence, but what are you doing? Should you be blamed for the same? I don’t like many of the things Trumps said but that does not give me, you, or anybody else excuses to break the law. Since you mentioned climate change, since when is there a law to tell you how to behave to make you “care” about it? If you care about anybody, you don’t force them to do what you want and then assault them if they don’t. Isn’t that what you’re doing? Climate is constantly changing from the beginning of time. Before you attack me too, you should try to think more than just yourself before jumping to conclusion. If you like to whine all day, go for it. I’m not going to tell you how to live your life. Don’t force me to live my life like yours, as long as how I live does not infringe on your rights. Get it? Or are you so full of yourself that you don’t? I don’t need to announce to the world how much I “care” about climate change. Just act responsibly and do the right thing. Sell your ideas and influence others, but don’t force things down people’s throat. Don’t protest violence by creating violence. Don’t make up stupid excuses to justify your poor intentions.

  12. When this gentleman walks into the room today. And he is not cooperative. He should not walk back out except in handcuffs. And if Cover up Barr tries to let him go, they should throw him in jail also. It’s time to show these traitors they mean business.

    1. YOU WATCH FAKE NEWS DON’T YOU? THE ONLY TRAITORS ARE OBAMA, CLINTON, HOLDER, LERNER, LYNCH AND COMEY. WISE UP LIBERAL TURD.

    1. You should be ashamed yourself acting like a child in case nobody ever told you the president only the president has permission to talk to any foreign diplomat or country without you criticizing him

    1. @Kenneth Turk thanks for the stellar example of whataboutism, the tool of someone who has no rebuttal LMFAO you rubes are dumb.
