Rachel Maddow reports on some of the findings in the DOJ inspector general report, including that the FBI did not spy on the Trump campaign, debunking a flat accusation leveled by William Barr in congressional testimony in April.

  1. We are now living in a dystopian fact free world.

    “Doublethink means the power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them.”- Orwell 1984
    Facts have been reduced to mere opinion, we live in very dangerous times under Trump.

    • And I think it’s the dems and their media. So do the independent voters btw. Black America is waking up. Sorry, your media’s desperation isn’t going to save you from this mess

      @Kansas City Jim”Common sense” is the set of prejudices you have before you turn eighteen. It is never fact-based or evidence-based. Often evidence-based policy is opposed by those who want “common sense” policy. For example: “common sense” tells you that legalizing drugs will cause widespread drug use and mayhem. Evidence shows the opposite. Countries that have legalized or decriminalized drugs have less drug abuse, less crime, less overdose deaths, and less addiction. As usual, the right wing argument for “common sense” policy flies in the face of evidence and is mainly based on emotions and feelings. When right wingers accuse others of caring only about feelings they are just projecting.

      @generationofswine I think that’s a sad statement, and if you truly believe that then I’m sad for you, and I worry if you struggle for happiness

    • @generationofswine The fake news media is not the ‘free press’. They are the bought-and-paid-for propaganda bullhorn of the dark interests that used to be running the show before President Trump showed up and upset their apple cart.

      How did Orwell know that the Liberals are going to establish a Gaslighting Dictatorship?

    Shameless liar! Barr should be barred from the bar

  3. at about 35 seconds into this is where all of a sudden the light went on in this piece of filth’s head and he decided to run with it. As usual, he finds any opportunistic moment to cuase his stench to be able to be increased. This thing is a snake. Watch Conan th BarrBarrian where the bad guy turns into a snake, James Earl Jones, sorry for pairing you up with this sick puppy’s appearance. You’re a good actor, he is nothing more than a smelly turd polluting everything that he touches

  4. At this point Barr has no credibility and whatever comes out of his mouth is what Trumps instructs him to say, in other words, pure lies.

  5. George Orwell got everything right except the year.

    • @Mind Freshener you need to refresh your mind and learn the meaning of words…

    • @Dave Schultz you realize he said that as a *leftist.* he was a socialist. he believed people like you should be taken out back and shot, which makes your quoting of him fairly anti-intellectual, but i suppose thats on brand.

    • @ashley you like many need to study socialism more closely… it’s not perfect.. but then all government ideologies have pluses and minuses….
      Martin Luther King Jr. once said “socialism is for the rich” and “capitalism” is for the poor.. I believe it was in his speech THE THREE EVILS OF SOCIETY… check it out if you can..

    Barr is a Disgrace he is Defending a Corrupt unfit fake president they all have to be Removed from the WH

    • @Dave Schultz the name of the investigation is irrelevant. Horowitz concluded that the warrant was not predicated on the Steele dossier. Horowitz also identified pro trump f.b.i. agents participated in the investigation. The Clinton Foundation got money from a Ukrainian not the government of Ukraine. Btw the Clinton Foundation does charitable works around the world. The trump Foundation paid for a portrait of don, worked as a piggy bank for the trumps, and was shut down and fined by the state of new York. The truth suits me fine, but I will not accept any “alternative facts”

    • @Dave Schultz Russian troll alert 🤡 💩 shut up trumpard

    • You haven’t a clue. Wake Up!

  7. Rs are soooo desperate for even a single ‘victory’ for their version of the truth – and they get none, time after time after time. And they honestly can’t fathom that again, they come up empty. Their delusion has gone on long enough. Wipe them all out of office, then start the prosecutions: tRump, barr, pompeo, mulvaney, jordan, nunes, gaetz, collins, graham, mcconnell, kushner, jr., ivanka…

    • Republicans deserve only congressional minorities in the House and Senate, and to be removed from the bully pulpit of the Presidency. The party as a whole has proven that they are incapable of any kind of governance, and are antithetical to US and International progress. NEVER reward a Republican with a vote.

  8. Those poor trolls will be choking on their popcorn. At least they have short memories and are easily distracted so the shame of believing their GOP/Trump overlords will be replaced with the next exciting rabbit hole to run down into to look for stuff that does nothing but show their biases and lack of critical thinking.

  9. Seriously America is a BARR nana republic now

  10. Barr is now a bigger threat than the Pigman.

  11. Bill Barr did not revert to deceit. Bill Barr continues in deceit, because deceit is his baseline mode of communication.

  12. Hello MSNBC, its becoming increasingly hard to find Rachel Maddow full show. She’s a great reporter I’d like to stay tuned to. Please post her full shows. Thanks

  13. Why can’t Americans get rid of this liar?

      @Michael Binder and no she isn’t, bcuz oann is right propaganda

    • @J Bell why you say that? you own a voting machine or are you trying to be Stephen miller racist?

    • Because they lack the power to enforce, or think they lack that power. How on earth is it possible that people, upto the AG and the president are allowed to make untrue claims over and over and over again about their powers and about the facts without Congress having any means to call them to order?? Just like during the hearings, where all that fi Nadler seemed to be allowed to do in this respect, is to keep saying that the order is to be respected. *They.don’* Did Trump make them realize that the Congess tiger is only a paper tiger that can be mocked freely…?
      Could it be that a civility and a dignity is assumed that Republicans simply have shed, collectively…?

    • @Michael Binder Being deaf, DUMB, and blind must be difficult…

  14. Turns out “deplorables” was far too kind a word.

    • @J Bell weren’t you just crying about calling people names? Of course it was only a matter of time before you started In yourself and showed your true colors huh….ya numpty hick. That’s ok we know what a bunch of fkin snowflakes you are. Go find your safe space and fk off child.

    • @J Bell Republican leader Trump doesn’t call people names? Is that a joke?

    • Dunce.

    • Kobina Annan he doesn’t call opposing voters names. He calls out people that call him out, the media and opposing leaders. I’ve never heard him generalize about you like your leaders do about me. No that isn’t a joke. Prove me wrong

  15. Look at his body language especially his eyes BS from Barr biggest joke

    The fact that Americans tolerate being repeatedly lied to by their own attorney general is an insult to American voters.

    • Miranda Matott | December 10, 2019 at 8:39 AM | Reply

      The fact rachel maddow doesn’t explain the 17 major errors shows the bias from msnbc. The law only matters when its favors the liberals.

    • @Miranda Matott Of course the Left is going to highlight only those parts of the report that they think support their false narratives. These folks are still pushing the idea that the FBI didn’t spy on Trump. What?? The FISA warrant is for spying! But it went a lot deeper. Not only did they eavesdrop, they tried to entrap members of Trump’s staff using foreign intelligence assets. The Papadopoulos case is a prime example. They lured him overseas on business, offered him dirt on Clinton, allegedly from Russian sources. They tried to give him a bundle of cash. They even tried to set him up with a temptress. Outrageous. It’s clear that the spying was not innocent, but malevolent.

    • @Miranda Matott Russian troll alert 🤡 💩

    • You’re as dumb as they come.

    • You get what you deserve (or should I say “we”)…

  17. Look at Barr’s tell. Eyelids flashing about 20 times as he lied.

  18. Deceit is the reason Barr was named AG.Trump searched long and hard for this dirtbag to protect him.

  19. Barr is a lying fool who stupidly defends the indefensible, especially those assertions claimed by Trump.

  20. “He has pulled this trick before”, and “he will do it again”
    We know now that he is untrustworthy.
