Trump Dismantles Decades-Old Surveillance Treaty Irreparably On His Way Out The Door | Rachel Maddow 1


Rachel Maddow describes how Donald Trump in his lame duck period has not only abruptly removed the U.S from the decades old Open Skies Treaty that supplies the U.S. and its allies with surveillance data on Russian military activities, but has taken steps to dispose of the program's specialized planes and removed the option of replacing them.

  1. All complicit GOP members must be held accountable for these actions.

    • No Republican will ever be investigated or prosecuted for anything that they’ve done. Democrats aren’t interested in holding them accountable.

    • ​@Amy Hinton The Republican establishment and Democrat establishment might as well be the same organization. They both hated Trump because he damaged their powerbase. Have no fear though, we’re right back to Bush-Clinton-Bush-Clinton. You voted for Jeb Biden, and Jeb Biden is what you’ll get. I hope you enjoy the war he starts.

    • @Mark Gibson That was a shot at our own investigative agencies and the Democratic Party. It’s pretty ridiculous when our own establishment is completely uninterested or incapable of watchdogging itself.

    • Make Who ever did this PAY. TO REPLACE THEM .

    • @D Higgins Boy, the leftwing hawks are out in force today.

  2. And Trump’s supporters say he isn’t Russia’s president of the United States.

  3. Putin sure got his money’s worth. We need to see that hidden server.

      @Darque1137 you trash talk me first.. and you got the same as the last.. nothing..dems and their DRAMA

    • @Gerome McGowan Yeah, it’s kind of easy to talk trash about an illiterate grade-school dropout, especially when you’re accusing others of not being able to read.

      You do understand that you write at a second-grade level, right?

      It was the commonest people and Mitch McConnell, the senator leader. Then Kentucky turned around in the 2021 election put Mitch McConnell back in, now that’s communist voting.

    • @Darque1137 it is amazing if gerome is actually a person
      It is like looking at the output from 1980s aphorism generator

    • @Gerome McGowan um moron it is “you’re ” not your
      “Asking how stupid can you be?” is not a challenge

  4. Trump only has one friend, that’s Putin. He’s got debts to pay.

    I’ll say it again: “ Trump supporters will still view him as their savior”😂

  6. Putin gives trump the order and trump his lap dog obeys.

    I always thought that Donald Trump was an asset and a spy for the Russian government.

    • Yes. Hillary warned us.
      She could not tell the intelligent information. And President Obama went to Moscow mitch McConnell
      He said he would tell that President Obama is trying to win the election for Hiliary.

      Yep, I’m sure trumps wife and in-laws speak Russian.

    • All that laundry he’s done for them over the years? From the get go.

    • Daniel Morales | November 24, 2020 at 2:44 PM | Reply

      From day one of the trump administration…if it walks like and it talks like and looks like a Russian intelligence asset has been apparent to many both inside and outside of government. Now, “what is to be done?”

    • Russia doesn’t need Trump as they can and do overfly and inspect any territory of the 34 countries in the Open Skies Treaty. As can any signatory country overfly Russia.

      Oh wait you didn’t know this ….??

  8. Putin’s Puppet is continuing to hurt this country to the end.

  9. I was worried about this. He is going to destroy everything on his way out. And his people won’t care….

  10. UNBELIEVABLE!! Trump HAS TO PAY for ALL the EVIL he has committed against our nation!! He will reap ALL the evil seeds he has sown!!!! Payday is coming…AND SOON!!

  11. Trump is a disgrace. Shame on those who voted for such an evil man.

      25th Amendment–A sitting President can be removed for incapacity, an inability to discharge the duties of his office, in which case the Presidency would then revert to the VP. If the shoe fits…

    • @marlene mead Turn your caps lock off. Makes you seem like you are screaming. You call others stupid but it just makes you look that way. Your Dear Leader is the one who conned you. You will see the proof on Jan 20th. He’s done.

    • @Tomas Stacy who told you Joe was a Socialist? Your Orange derange leader?!

    • @marlene mead calm down before you have a stroke or something.

    • @marlene mead I don’t know what you are taking but please stop it’s making you insane

  12. “President Trump”, an oxymoron for the history books.

  13. Christine Gibson | November 24, 2020 at 9:25 AM | Reply

    Mary Trump said he would do all he could do to destroy the US before he left office.. Boy was she right 🤔☹️

  14. Kenneth Miller | November 24, 2020 at 9:26 AM | Reply

    Trump thinks he’s above the law hopefully when he gets out of office he spends the rest of his life in jail.

  15. please Please PLEASE follow up on this Rachel… the thing is THIS WILL NOT STAND! NO FREAKIN WAY !!

  16. “So, it’s good that the arsonist is gone, yes?” said the homeowner walking through the heap of ashes of what had been a great and mighty nation.

  17. *Like the ‘ol saying goes….ALL ROADS LEAD TO PUTIE! Pay attention America!*

  18. Putin must be very happy with Trump, he’s doing his job.

  19. Trump just dropped a big old treason log into the public pool.

  20. Trump is evil he should be charged for this he can’t away with this

      I think Dems should see an EMERGENCY INJUNCTION/RESTRAINING ORDER AGAINST TRUMP, FOR ANY/ALL CONDUCT which poses any form of harm to the US; prison as the alternative for contempt of Court. I would also like to see them pursue the 25th Amendment, incapacity, arguably an inability to discharge the duties of his office.
