    Guiliani will soon join Michael Cohen in his cell block.

      @GreenRuled; Did you mean to write “Donald Trump” instead of “Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden” above? It was Trump who held back previously approved, badly-needed defense money in exchange for a favor from Ukraine against Joe Biden. As you are a Trump-supporter, I guess we shouldn’t expect you to understand this, so we will give you a bit of help here.

      You’re right that phone records and other materials are evidence, but they are of TRUMP’s request for a favor from Ukraine in return for defense funds which were already approved. Trump’s doing this is illegal (quid pro quo). The “favor” requested by Trump was that the Ukraine try to dig up dirt on Joe and Hunter Biden to use to help Trump in the 2020 election. This matter had already been investigated and the Bidens were found innocent of any wrongdoing. That part was done and over, but Trump wanted more.

      Follow the real news to get your facts and names straight. I seriously doubt that anything we say will dig your head out of the sand, but we have to at least attempt to help you see the facts. You also may want to edit your post. No need to reply as we are skeptical that you’ll even understand your reversal of facts and names. Take care. DBB

    • And Trump “very stable genius”

      @GreenRuled Thanks for the intelligent reply. Told you that you wouldn’t be able to pull your head out of the sand. If you don’t get that, it means you’re hiding your head in the sand (“The Ostrich Syndrome”) thinking you’re safe from the truth, leaving your backside exposed. We expected nothing better from you. Just shows the intelligence level (or lack thereof) of a Trump supporter. No need for other pictorial comments from you. Have a nice life in Nowhere land. :0) DBB

  2. A clear case of Biden Derangement Syndrome

  3. I can’t believe that 60 million people voted for this a-hole

    • @Tom Noodles you know little, Tom noodles. They talk about the swing voters as if they’re a large size, but they’re really not. Between the electoral college & gerrymandering, Republicans have made their voting power about equal to Democrats even though they’re fewer in numbers. That’s why the last 2 Republican presidents lost the popular vote but won the election anyway. They’ve made these swing voters very influential, & their votes count for a lot more to the election than their size reflect. So when I say the majority, I am speaking about the the die hard Republicans who support Trump no matter what he does. No, they’re not all racists, but they do have racial leanings. The single issue they vote on are either guns or abortion, not foreign policy.

      @John Appice The only Civil War is the one raging inside the Democrat Party. They have split into Liberals vs Stalinists and are at each-other’s throats. The apple of discord is who gets the corporate money, so you know it is going to get very ugly.

    • @Audience 72 Stop gaslighting me, I won’t let you get away with that. You can’t just say that the majority of Trump voters are racist. I want to see the receipts. If the majority of Trump voters are racist, then it goes without saying that Clinton only won the popular vote due to illegal immigrant voting. Anyway, I think that you must be blind and maybe mentally deficient if you truly believe that foreign policy doesn’t matter to the American people. It’s time for you to get a clue. Americans are rejoicing ever since Trump fired John Bolton. Americans approve of Trump’s wisdom and restraint in refusing to fall for Iran’s trap.

    • @Adam Roper Well, when the rigging is done by the republicans, it was a hard start anyways. She did win the popular vote though. Which I think still itches under the skin of facists, such as yourself

    • @Tom Noodles 1st of all, I didn’t say Trump supporters are just racists, there’s a fair number who are sexists too. That’s what “minorities” mean. Here’s your receipt: look at the incoming freshman class of senators in the House of Representatives. You can see plain as day who people are voting for. It is generally reflective on their own image, because they represent the same values. 2nd, for SINGLE issue voters, foreign policy is not the reason for these voters to vote a particular candidate. So STFU & shove your exceptionalism up you rear.

  4. Rachel you’re brilliant. Keep up the good work.

    • i love it too, hate speech like Rachel Madcow will be the reason Trump will win in 2020, thank god!
      the left has completely insane.

  5. i definitely want that book! ty ms maddow, you are amazing. and even catching this creep out before they can fly this scam here too. but that poor woman, locked up for standing up to corruption!

  6. Wow!!! I saw what happened to that lady on the movie called Active Measures.. Paul Manafort is a snake in the grass. Putin is pulling strings every where. In Ukraine they even chanted “Lock her up”. Now where did I hear that chant? Oh the Red Hat rallies..

    • Another is Putin’s campaign slogan when running for president was Make Russia Great Again years before Trump’s MAGA during his campaign.
      Can’t make this stuff up.

    • yes the snake is back. Now he wants a pardon and now trumpee can not give it to him.

  7. I think anything “Trump” stinks.

  8. Rachel, we love your show here in Kenya 🇰🇪 !! (yes we have Obama’s birth certificate🤣)
    How can we get your book?

    “I’m going to be on The View… pray for me.”
    She’s gunning for you, Meghan McCain.

    • It will be interesting to see Maddow vs McCain

    • John McCain was the last reputable Republican. They resort to character assassination when the facts have failed them. McCain would be disappointed in his daughter if she behaved as less than the patriotic American she was raised to be. These are Not partisan issues.

    • Rachael is way smarter than Meghan McCain. Way!

      After chatting with the boring and predictable Jesuit clown Colbert, the View is about right for Bill Nye the “Rachel” guy. Stay classy, Gutter Drag Queen!

  11. it’s amazing how the dots come together

  12. 8:00… Please tell me she is no longer in prison and that her name has been cleared.

    Can we all just take a moment to savor watching Rachel Maddow and Stephen Colbert riffing off one another? Just. Awesome. 😁🤨😍

  14. You should have told us this sooner. This is good evidence to point at when talking to republicans

  15. rachel always seems to find the underlining reason of a situation

  16. I think I’m in love with Rachel.

  17. I wonder when Semjon Mogileviich pops up in this whole story….

  18. When Giuliani showed some of his documents on the air, he opened up the door to have to give them all to Congress. he can no longer say they are of lawyer/client privilige. Arrest him if he ignores the subpoena. If I did this that is what would happen to me.

  19. The beginning of Steven Colbert’s statement is exactly how I think of Rachel lml

  20. I love her reporting,she say’s it as it is #1 reporter in my eyes
