  1. Putin owns trump.

    • PUTIN owns thomas seven’s momma ….. lol

    • @Linda Scott
      journalists ?
      Why are you on a site where there are no journalists

    • thomas seven 100%

    • @Dander Spat you obviously have no idea what a journalist is. You think Fux Disinfotainment has journalists? Or your 8chan website?

    • @Linda Scott
      One of us has lot all their discernment.
      When the mainstream media “news”
      outlets begins sneaking Presidential debate questions to a candidate, they in my mind have lost all credibility as a news organization. Their “journalists” have lost their credibility to call themselves journalists. In MSNBC’s case, when your news is based on a world government allegiance and agenda, it has lost its credibility as a “news” organization. Not a very difficult decision unless you are suffering from indoctrination. MSNBC does not even have an allegiance to the United States Constitution which makes me highly skeptical of their “news” and what they are reporting because I identify as an American.

  2. Why does Nunes keep going on about the screwed up cloudstrike theory he knows it’s complete garbage and pushes Putin agenda he’s on the Intel committee for crying out loud.

  3. Giuliani was pushing this particular alternative reality, regarding Ukraine, to inflate his own bloated self-importance by selling a “new”, “unique” “special insight” line;
    The Orangeutan bought it hook, line and sinker… and shall soon be filleted…. or tossed back as chum.
    (one N.Y.C. con man conning another New Yorker: “I know a con when I see one…” – Mike Bloomberg)

  4. How can people not see that EVERYTHING Traitor Trump does benefits Russia?

    • Dave Schultz For sure you on the other hand.

    • Dave Schultz he has No other choice and it was congress who made that decision

      @Paul Weaver It’s ok to admit you don’t understand things. However, fixing stupid? Is not possible, sir. So what you want to do in this context is spare yourself from embarrassment by sitting out of conversations that are beyond you.

    • Lisa, it is because of Fox news.

      @Laurie Crater I think it has more to do with the paper trail that leads from Ukraine back to the DNC. But that’s not important right, Laurie? You democrats are hypocrites. You sound off about truth and justice while ignoring the crimes of your party being projected onto the POTUS. The DNC and her RINO acolytes are the reason this country is headed for conflict.

  5. “It is the consensus of the entire intelligence community that the Russians interfered with the us elections in 2016”. The theory that it was Ukrainian interference came from Putin’s crew. Watching Nunes say it is just so laughable. He can be roomies with Roger Stone or maybe Michael Cohen.

  6. All those officials who didn’t report these crimes should be prosecuted later and lose their jobs and pension.
    Dereliction of duty shouldn’t be rewarded.

    • Charges should be : Nonfeasance the failure to act where action is required—willfully or in neglect. Misfeasance the willful inappropriate action or intentional incorrect action or advice. Malfeasance the willful and intentional action that injures a party.

    Rachel, who does Trump know? According to Donald Trump, he doesn’t know anyone, AT ALL. Trump spent the last three years, in the white house, with EVERYONE HE DOESN’T KNOW. WOE. LOL

    • Hadassah Israel2 lmfao… but he has many fine, many fine people on his team. He has the “most extraordinary fine people on his team” 😂😂😂😂

    • I bet you would say you “know” Rachel Maddow cause you see her on TV…

    • Hadassah Israel2 | November 22, 2019 at 3:36 AM | Reply

      @damien neimad I know Rachel, better than I know you. Lol. Yes, fool, people know Rachel’s TV personality, because, she is on TV. Why the foolish, foolish, comments? I promise, sometimes I force myself to believe that some of you people are children, making comments like 2 year olds that say, gu, gu, ga, ga. Lol. WOE.

      @damien neimad wow, your name reads backwards and forwards, almost as if you are playing both sides against each other.
      Get lost, palindrone.

    It all goes back to the Helsinki meeting. I guarantee it!

    • Anne Heimburger | November 20, 2019 at 11:41 PM | Reply

      Before that

    • Dolores Reynolds | November 22, 2019 at 12:05 AM | Reply

      It goes back to before Trump got elected. He was in deep negotiations with various Russian entities to try to build a Trump Tower in Moscow shortly before he won the primary, and that negotiation did not stop until well into Trump’s presidency, despite what he said.

    • @Dolores Reynolds You are absolutely correct there. But no one on the Right will believe that. My assumption is based on what is publicly known, the moment of opportunity, and the evidence that cannot be denied by either side of the aisle.

  10. I criticize regularly, but Rachel Maddow has this well in hand and explains, defines it, and offers it for the country in a better way than many, many others on TV today.

    • Fin O'Suilleabhain | November 20, 2019 at 6:40 PM | Reply

      What’s to criticize? Since I first got on to her at the start of 2017 I’m not aware of a single time she’s been wrong about all this.

    • @Fin O’Suilleabhain i criticize the media, especially the mainstream media for it’s many faults. Ms. Maddow is well informed, i like her approach and thorough investigative narrative.

  11. Putin is enjoying this. Whatever the outcome, the damage is done. Meanwhile he is instructing his bot army to influence the next American election.

    • David Westwater | November 20, 2019 at 6:53 PM | Reply

      This women does not care that no one has health care only about rusian memes

    • @Uncle Sam There is not secret about the 2 Ukrainians – most mainstream media covered it. They were trying to show up the previous government whose leader had fled the country to Russia and were accused of interfering in the US election. But they should bring that period up because back then Trump gave Ukraine tanks and they stopped cooperating with the Mueller probe and convicted these guys.

    • @Uncle Sam Yes, Paul Manafort resigning as campaign director of corrupt client #2 – Don the Con – after the black ledger exposed the corruption from his first corrupt client – Putin’s plant Yanukovych was a complete secret. You could “only” read about it in those extremely hard to find documents also known as newspapers
      But do tell, why would an honest Billionaire like Donny hire a pro bono campaign manager, who’s known to have extensive ties to Putin, and the Russian mob? Or a pro bono private attorney playing Unregistered Foreign Agent in Ukraine, with Lev and Igor? Funny how often Donny’s “best people” land at Club Fed hey 🤔

    • Donny has caused so much damage to Americas reputation, especially abroad and he seems to be destroying the republican party also.

      Putin isn’t the only one enjoying this. Watching a corrupt party use a corrupt intelligence agency and get caught lying to a FISA court … it’s hysterical

    The Russians don’t help you get elected for free.

    • @Nyx, “ISIS is a JV team”, “Russia isn’t a threat…The 80s called, they want their foreign policy back”.

    • Trump has been compromise for years , Russia has been grooming trump with Bank loans ,buy condos off trump has their way of money laundering, trump’s beauty pageant, all done so when it was time for Putin to cash in it was going to be big

      @cindy clarke I totally agree with you on that it had to have started before he was to be N OFFICE….. BECUZ HE WAS TOO STUPID TO PULL IT OFF… LMAO 😁 👍 I’m thinking about 2011 OR later n 2012….but they had to have X bcuz he knew nothing and to set up all THE ORANGE REPUKE’S ENABLERS….. LMAO…. BUT VERY SAD……PTL

      Do Ukrainians ?

    • Andrew Mitchell | November 22, 2019 at 2:43 PM | Reply

      @Leonard Haggstrom If you are still clinging to this already debunked gobshite you are either a Russian Troll or a moron. I really don’t care which it is.

  13. Trump quotes: “I know more about climate change than the scientist
    ” i am the chosen one” ” I know more about military than the Generals”
    ” Democratic’s are evil” ” I am a stable genius” “Ukraine not Russia interfered
    in our election.+ “I will release my tax returns if elected.”
    That we all know came from the mouth of our President. 5 of his close associates are in
    Prison. This fellow voters is our President. Like him or not. I choose NOT.

  14. The Kurds now realize they’re as disposable as the Ukrainians in the eyes of the US government led by Trump.

  15. The president is a habitual we can’t trust him for nothing

      @George Washington – No US investor would finance Donald Trump anymore after his many failed business ventures and bankruptcies. This led him cup-in-hand to foreign investors, in particular, Russia.

    • George Washington | November 21, 2019 at 2:06 PM | Reply

      @KesselRunner606 And yet they invest in him everyday…do you even economics?

    • George Washington | November 21, 2019 at 2:11 PM | Reply

      @Carnell Bell As if your word supersedes all truth. From the mind of a finite fallible man, comes a statement strong enough to blanket even the greatest factual absurdity in this “impeachment” circus…No evidence. Pack it up boys, this black dude that still serves his masters on the Democratic plantation has decreed we’re all wrong and the POTUS is guilty. No way we can compete with that. Let’s go home…oof

      Good people can do bad things. Bad people can do good things. Humans are complex.

    The fact everything Trump does is oh so conveniently helpful to Russia has gone on way too long to be coincidental.

  17. The elephant in this room is that the Russians have a sleeper agent in the POTUS. Period.

  18. Trump is effectively the greatest sleeper cell Putin has ever deployed

  19. KesselRunner606 | November 21, 2019 at 5:25 AM | Reply

    Why does Trump fight so hard to hide his tax returns?

    My hypothesis: He’s broke, and in debt to Russian money laundering.

  20. Nathaniel Johnson | November 21, 2019 at 4:04 PM | Reply

    He was a Russian money launderer and now he’s a Russian asset, it’s so clear!
