Maddow: President Donald Trump Openly Admits To Collusion, No Impeachment Probe Needed | MSNBC 1

 

Trump publicly asks China to investigate Joe Biden and admits to hoping Ukraine would “start an investigation into the Bidens.” Rachel Maddow thinks Trump’s “theory” is “you get caught” and “doing it in public makes it less of a scandal?” Maddow adds, democrats “don't really need” an impeachment inquiry because he “announced it” on camera. Aired on 10/3/19.

    He plainly and openly doesn’t care anymore whether or not you like it.

    • @Captain Obvious its because its the only card he has left unfortunately

    • The people that are with him are “The People.” Like so many said, he’s not their President. And he responds, Screw those people, he doesn’t want or need their filthy votes. As far as he’s concerned, they can scream into the wind spurned and ignored.

    • I loved it when Biden openly told the story of using
      $1Billion American taxpayer dollars to threaten the Ukranian officials.
      Funniest open criminal behavior I have ever seen ……….. LOL
      Don’t mess with Hunter Biden or daddy Joseph Biden !!!!!!
      Joe even mentioned Barack ……… doesn’t get any better

  2. Maybe he doesn’t know the meaning of the word “collusion.” Yeah, that’s it.

      Collusion…will create a COLLISION. No matter, actually….He may not understand written/spoken words, but he is clearly one scared fellow.(Lack of vocab and all.)

    • @Moses Ruben I think noone in the media is using the legal term “conspiring with the enemy” simply because that verb, or rather it’s noun which is a “conspiracy”, have become toxic, and these days that word has become a synonym for what Trump, Fox & co. are inventing on a daily basis. The msm simply do not want to appear that they are now entering that field too… It is a word that everybody’s brain immediately connects with theories like schoolchildren actors, pizzagates and Benghazi, so no sane reporter or commentator wants to out there and have to say something like: “president’s attempts at conspiracy with Putin…” It is just another toxic word nowadays, so they are sticking to collusion, not that Hannity and “the base” would care for the subtle difference snyway…

    • I saw a clip of Biden admit to colliding with Ukraine. Why aren’t these liars talking about that. Fake News!

    • @Thomas Lasher Because we have ALL seen it, the entire world, sweetie, at that time when it happened, and Biden was not “admitting to colluding with Ukraine”, it was a nicely cut and misleading excerpt from a long interview, in which he jokes about how corrupt this judge actually was, and in which, had it not been cut and thus doctored to mislead audiences like you, it is obvious that it was not Biden dismantling a foreign judge on his own for investogating his son too much, but the entire American government, as well as the entire NATO, dismantling a corrupt judge for NOT INVESTIGATING ENOUGH, and helping put someone on who DID investigate more, and found Hunter Biden, among many others, completely innocent, LONG BEFORE Trump started distorting this into a smear campaign for his own agenda. Biden acted as a messenger of the US govt, and every other NATO country sent their people too, so they made sure the judges investigated MORE. You, my froend, are being lied to, so widen your knowledge by doing some independent research and watching the entire interview – it is all online, Trump & co. simply fill you with hatred in advance, to prevent you from ever wanting to do some factchecking. It was over long before Donald started warming it up again by distorting it, to help his losing campaign, the entire NATO was involved, so THIS part of the news is not fake at all.

  3. The GOP are about to show how anti American they truly are when they let trump off the hook.

    A criminal who commits a crime is not allowed to define how to interpret his crime. He can’t commit a crime and say, “oh that, it was not a crime, it was another thing…”

    • @Captain Obvious Ahhh, thou art intimately familiar with the Dunning-Kruger effect I see. Even to the degree that thou art most likely, the current poster child for the malady. Hahahahaha…..you are so dumb, and deceived. But go ahead, make something up like the rest of your ilk so you’ll feel better. Hahahaha!!!!!!

    • Sure. If he shoots someone to death, he’ll say he ‘whacked’ the guy. And his supporters will argue: “Law says nothing about ‘whacking’, you stupid Dems! Perfectest president ever, hahaha! Trump 2028 MAGA.”

    • @Arjan Stam The fundamentalists want Armageddon and the Rapture and so they are fine with him creating chaos because it will lead to all of that happening faster — which, to me, is the utmost disrespect to a deity that provided this beautiful world to us — all they want to do is escape and be the ones on top at last.

    • @Toraguchi Toraguchi Yes it is. Bizarre even.

  5. Trump is without shame or remorse for anything he’s ever done. No conscience.

    • Sean M The Steele dossier was first paid for by republicans. Facts matter, tool

    • Sean M speaking of VP’s, when Pence was governor of indiana he took money for public schools and gave it to charters schools. At that time Pence’s wife was the State administrator for charter schools. Hmmm, seems pretty fishy to me. So YES, let’s take a look back on VP’s!

    • Don’t forget, he acts according to what the electoral Americans wanted. Americans would careless about foreign interference and Trump knows it very well. He knows we want to “wall” ourselves inside and forget about the world!

    • Surely Shirley is a Russian Troll.

  6. As Cenk would say : ” tick tick tick tick ! ”

  7. Call the vet tell him to bring the dart gun, load him up and relocate him to a remote area where he won’t bother anyone ever again.

      Reba Miller all we would really have to do is make a fake White House on an island. Fake cameras and a streaming service telling him he runs the world. Install a kfc and a McDonald’s on the island. He will completely believe this.He will eat himself to death and we can get back to America. Ffs. Rudy and Mitch have to go to the island as well.

    • That would be nice! Not to hear that horrible, stupid sounding voice again, or see that sagging, fat lump of orange demented flesh.

    • Such a cruel thing to say about Obama.

  8. You can be a Republican or an American – but not both now….

    • Captain Obvious | October 4, 2019 at 2:38 AM | Reply

      TRUMP, PENCE, ADMIN AND GOP ARE TRAITORS AND TERRORISTS. (Obviously.)

      THE GOP HAVE BEEN DOMESTIC ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL TERRORISTS SINCE THE 1980S. Their campaign is called ‘strategic degradation’, and it involves defunding social and public programs until everyone is dumb , poor, desperate and afraid. The perfect marks for a populist bait-and-switch. They are anti-Americans. They are arsonists who work at the firehouse. They are evil.

  9. I would love to see how he handles himself in a legal trial

    • @Joe Garcia Well the trial will be in the Senate, dominated by Republicans… But by then they may come to their senses.

    • So would I – the Prosecution will have to provide the evidence and their witnesses will be? Adam Stiff? Nancy Pelosi? Jerry Nadler? Oh yea – bring it.

    • Saltponds239 Why would you wish to align yourself with a President who, in addition to his attempts to manipulate Ukraine, is now asking the same of China? He knows no shame, or is truly stupid.

  10. Go long – get ALL the evidence you can. We need to know the damage he’s done that we don’t know. It stacks to the top of Trump Tower.

    Just for a minute think that if this was Obama, what would have been the reactions of Republissians and cultists? I’m sure it would have been calls to arms and civil war, etc…

    • surely you joke, mein failüre | October 4, 2019 at 1:19 AM | Reply

      They freaked out when Obama wore a tan suit.

    • Oh my god! They would be marching in the streets calling for President Obama impeachment if he would’ve done a 1/3 of the shyt Trump has done

    • IRichard Adegbola Adesakin | October 4, 2019 at 2:47 AM | Reply

      world b flea 1/3rd ? No! 1/10000th. The Republicans have always been a party that projects its worst excesses on others. These are the same things they accused HC of.

  12. He is totally mad.
    He really thinks that what he is saying is okay 🤔
    Facinating.

  13. Trump to Whistleblower: “hey, you’re not doing it right – let me try”

  14. Who else is exhausted with this guys stupidity?

  15. Does anybody still think there was no collusion with Russia. It’s as obvious as the comb over and dye job trump hairsprays everyday .

    • ComaBerenices | October 4, 2019 at 9:29 AM | Reply

      @Dan C, Show me where he says “give up”? Let’s not put words in other people’s mouths. And, besides, that’s what Ukraine and e.g. Taiwan, etc. pretty much did anyway – they’re avoiding a direct military war confrontation. And they’re doing the sensible thing. Because what do you propose they do instead – enter into a suicidal war? That’s a zero-sum game. The only country that decided to go to war (REAL war, hardcore, to the grisly death and the last man standing, for decades now) over a land grab in a border dispute is probably Muslim Palestine – and it’s not going well for them – at all. They’re basically losing that Middle-Eastern war – and they didn’t manage to get back the disputed territory they lost to Israel, they just lost more young people in the war. Trying to fight Israel (which is better prepared for conflict) was a foolish decision by Palestine. Israel isn’t budging – they’re not going anywhere, Palestine won’t be able to push them out of “their” territory. They should have concentrated more on agreeing a new border arrangement with Israel instead. It may not be what Palestine (or other countries in a similar position) want – but it’s the only viable solution.

    • ​@ComaBerenices Of course he doesn’t say “give up.” I didn’t even say that’s what he said. I said that it doesn’t “seem” like it, as in the feeling that I get from that statement. How else would you understand this, “I really hope you and the person who’s bullying you can get together and solve your problem. That would be a great achievement.” What does he mean by “your problem?” The problem is being invaded and the problem is on Russia’s part for doing the invasion. Why isn’t he going to Russia and telling them to stop the invasion instead? Wouldn’t that be the more sensible approach? I’m not for war either, but the fact that he’s not bringing in Putin and telling him, “You should solve the problem with Ukraine and stop invading them,” seems (there’s that word again) to me that if asked, he would say that he would back Russia more than Ukraine.

    • ComaBerenices It is about more than just who the ppl want, it is about the land , the resources , the country’s sovereignty . Any and all the lives lost while trying to defend against an invading force.

    • @Dan C, His statement is actually correct: it’s the problem of the Eastern Europeans and they should sort it out. It’s not the job of the US president (from the North American continent) to waltz around the world (and especially to other continents, which he doesn’t understand) and try to sort out their disputes for them. Just like it’s not his job to go to the Middle East and butt into local conflicts, which he doesn’t understand. And he can try telling them “what to do” until he’s blue in the face (e.g. try telling Palestine to lay down weapons and try telling Israel to give back to Palestine the disputed territory) – but no one will listen to him because he’s not even from that continent. His main job (his salary is paid by US citizens) is to sort out problems in the US – for US citizens.

      As for the Ukraine/Russia border conflict – people keep over-simplifying it because they don’t understand anything about it. That conflict runs deep. The disputed area (a peninsula, originally Turkish territory) is mostly inhabited by ethnic Russians (because they were the ones who won it in a war from Turkey). When the USSR dissolved – Ukraine got it due to a formality. But the Russians always wanted that territory back – it was theirs historically & ethnically (well, theirs and the Turks’ – but the Turks apparently don’t want it). That’s why, when the Russians decided to take it back, they waltzed in there without much trouble – because the Russian-ethnic locals LET THEM IN. The majority of residents on that disputed peninsula are pro-Russian because – surprise, surprise – they’re Russian (by ethnicity) themselves. So this is an ethnic conflict – should a territory historically populated by Russians (and some Turks) belong to Ukraine or to Russia. It’s a deep historical border conflict – so let them sort it out. It’s not the North American continent’s problem.

    • ​@ComaBerenices Huh.. Thank you for the history lesson, sincerely (not sarcastic), as I didn’t know. I actually think I may have heard about something like this on Anthony Bourdain’s show from some Ukrainians but kinda tuned it out.
      You make a good point that he should be focused on the US. That brings to question other things then, like why, if he and his administration cares so much about corruption, do they not look into corruption here in the US? Why aren’t they cracking down on more people here? Why is the first time (apparently since I don’t know of any other examples he has) he’s gone after corruption about Biden and his son? Why is Rudy Giuliani going to Paul Manafort, imprisoned for his corruption, for advice? Why ask a foreign country’s leader to look into the corruption of a political opponent now, about a week after he held back the support approved by Congress (which apparently he shouldn’t have the power to do because of checks and balances)? Why not use our multiple intelligence agencies instead? Because they’re corrupt too? If they are, then why not ask the Ukrainian President to also look into our own intelligence agencies?
      Again, ill-informed citizen sitting closer to center, kind of learning about the issues. I actually find watching CNN’s Chris Cuomo’s interviews to be a better than MSNBC or Fox because at least both sides are heard a bit better and he gives both sides a chance to make their case.

    Without cutting out the whole hydra, you just waste everyone’s time and hopes. Impeach Trump without his minions? No. Everyone involved must go.

    • In many countries around the world america has intervened to ‘restore democracy’ and relieve the population from dictatorial oppression. Now it’s america’s turn for ‘regime change’, that will be entertaining.

    • Concerned Citizen you’re not taking in the facts or thinking rationally. Do you have this same problem with other aspects of your life? Learn compassion. Believe in the goodness of people. Realize that color of skin is meaningless.

  17. Remember that whole “no collusion delusion”

    • @Mathy Don yeah you better put the crackpipe down. Noone but you will argue that point😂#numbersdontlieyoudo

    • @vulcan stein I know, I can’t believe anyone buys Trump’s scam economy. Thankfully we had Obama, he left us a strong enough economy to endue this incompetence… for now

    • @Mathy Don Like I said before, I guess Obama didn’t see the same trend as you because in his own words the economy was failing then, not rising. Said it would be ” impossible” for Trump to grow the economy as he has.😂 Keep telling yourself that buddy. It’s called delusion.

    • @John Wright 😂You should go back too! Jack of all trades, Master of none! Yeah Obama economy😂😂 Thanks for the laugh!

    • @vulcan stein yeah, Obama spent the first 4 years fixing the last Republican that screwed everyhting up. I’m just looking at the last term – i.e. what Donny inherited . “By that measure, the economy grew 3.1 percent. But Obama, too, reached 3 percent growth on a four-quarter basis four different times.” https://www.cnbc.com/2019/02/28/trumps-economic-policies-failed-to-deliver-promised-3percent-growth-in-2018.html
