    https://www.breitbart.com/the-media/2019/05/02/nolte-rachel-maddows-17-most-audacious-and-paranoid-russia-hoax-lies/ PLUMMENTING Rachel, is what our GREAT President should nickname you! You’re a HORRIBLE reporter. Get your lazy butt out there and conduct reporting the way it should be done! Go interview ppl, tell BOTH sides! YOU are CIA CONTROLLED. No more. Ppl are awake now & we see right through you & your creepy cronies.

  • mike swiental says:

    rachael "mad-cow" is lying to us again= Michael cohen was NOT sent to prison for "hush money " payments. in fact, the judge looked at this guilty plea with a puzzled look on his face and said;" I will accept your plea for this in case something turns up in the future but I see NO crime here"= read the transcript for yourself. Coen was sent to prison for not paying enough taxes,bank fraud and lying to congress. not paying "hush money"…quit lying to us "madcow"

  • My heart goes out to the people who believe this crap. Many of these fake news people will be going down very soon. Right now Comey is next. I understand that Rachel is being paid by the Clinton advisors and told what to say. There is a list with  over 100 of these fake news reporters that will be served indictments. Want the truth? Go to judicial watch.

    I love Rachel, but some days she just takes too much time to say what she could say with a LOT less background material (AKA "filler")

  • Well let's talk about
    The Trump Tower meeting.
    And this why they are Trying to take Barr
    Down

  • You are insane. Please get some help. Stop saying he is trying to keep his PERSONAL finances Secret. He is trying to keep them PRIVATE you silly head. Take your meds and remember just because someone Thinks that they have the power and authority to get this information from PRESEDENT TRUMP dosent mean they dont need a REASON. Now go read a good book and get some air. #spreadlove

  • David Brillert says:

    That's not personal finance money Trump used to hire those lawyers. He benefited greatly from his tax cuts and his office to pay for those fees. That is tax payer money.

    Why no impeachment inquiry……
    Unfortunately you'll have to ask Nancy Pelosi about that one Rachel. Because many aren't certain as to why not either. Just saying.

  • YankeeSkeptic says:

    Smugnorant Maddow's obsession over taking down duly-elected President Trump and everyone around him, are the result of chronic, late state TDS and never accepting the results of the 2016 Election. Was Hillary's humiliating loss that traumatic of an event???

  • 😁NEWS FLASH… Did ya hear the latest… Fake news CNN rating are so bad they're downsizing. Looks like madd cow Maddow heads is on the chopping block at CCN. That's what happens when you mess around with the Trump Train…Draining the SWAMP…NA NA NA HEY HEY hey GOOOOD BY😘

  • God Loving American says:

    DemonRats are destroying America… Trump2020 MAGA WWG1WGA….. MSNBC is a lying Corrupt lefties talking head… keep watching… Maddox will have a meltdown, lol

  • Robert Brucefan says:

    Rachel, Why don't you tell your 37 viewers the truth? The Mueller Report was redacted by Barr and The Mueller team. Not Barr alone. This whole fiasco is over. Because the creep producers at CNN want ratings and told you not to mention it.

  • activationcode says:

    I think it should be obvious at this point that nothing is happening to donald trump. By the time this is over he will be in office for 8 long years.

  • Really wish MSNBC would change the outro to their videos. Can’t help but hearing Chris Hayes ask each time for me to “Just blow Me”. I need coffee.

  • Actually liar, the courts are playing along.
    So much that there is another prosecuter investigating Hillary and Obama.
    That makes 4 separate federal investigations into Hillary & Obama & friends.
    What do you Dems think about that? lolololo
    Trump 2020.
    A the Dem candidates will be in prison or suicided by then.
    Boo hoo

  • This was a solid, valuable news segment, Rachel. So good that it was not a derogatory gratuitous slam against Russia and President Putin…one of the few leaders who's taking a responsible a stand on the unconstitutional persecution of Julian Assange.

  • todd prifogle says:

    Nothing going to happen. Court orders , subpoenas, nothing has any enforcement. Talk and talk and talk , analyze and debate. Nothing . Nothing has happened to trump . Why is trump still there ? The vast majority of the United States of America want trump gone one way or another GONE. But NOTHING, NOTHING is stopping the madness let alone fixing the damage already done.
    Never thought I would see the day America tolerated as POTUS a five times draft dodger who sits on a gold plated toilet and uses more hair spray than grandma.
    I recall many years ago the carnival came to town. Grandpa on his way home from work with his paycheck and he got suckered into a game of some sort and they conned him out of his whole check. Grandma took the sheriff down to the carnival and got his check back. The sheriff simply threatened any number of violations on top of a couple tickets and a suggestion to leave in the night. You don't see that kind of thing happen these days. The con men are still suckering people. Just turn on the tv and hucksters with the latest zoom zoom or wam wam made of plastic made anywhere but America for 3 easy payments of 19.95 or payday loans at some crazy interest rate and charges and fees or a bottle of pills to make you beautiful or to make you feel important or smart or good. BUT no sheriff no enforcement of what is proper and right. Nothing to protect the people.NOTHING. Trump will get reelected when he should get locked up.

  • BeatlesFanSonia says:

    Trump doesn’t have to hide any of his crimes because his base doesn’t care how unpatriotic or how much of a criminal he is and our laws don’t have anyway of stopping or prosecuting him! He can decide to be a forever president and there is nothing we can do about it! That is what I hear every day from every news outlet!

  • How can the Intelligence part be redacted, yet DOJ want to investigate this? Yet won't let Congress have access? I hope I making my confusion clear.

  • Rachel Maddow report their real news about the 8,000 African migrants at the Texas Laredo border trying to invade our country

  • Rachel Maddow did you know the illegal alien African migrants in Chiapas Mexico burnt down their own migrant camp

  • Douglas Rodrigues says:

    If Barr does his job we'll see exactly who the people are who are destroying this country. You crazed Democrats will once again not believe any of the results. Karl Marx has a name for people who aided in the overthrow of the Russian monarchy to install the communist utopia. He referred to those fools as "Useful Idiots."

  • Lennart Krantz says:

    The  Danish  police  (Politiet)  has  the  "oversight  authority"  of  citizens.  If  they  stop  me  and  ask  to  see  what  is  in  my  trunk , I  have  to  open.  Lots  of  drug  smugglers  have  been  apprehended  that  way.   It  would  not  help  me  ,  if  I  called  this  inspection  a  witch  hunt  or  accused  the  policemen  for  being  members  of  a  deep-state  gang.   Yet  the  king  is  exempted.  According  to  paragraph-13  in  the  Danish  constitution  , the  king  is  sacrosanct  and  free  from  responsibility.   This  is  an  old-fashioned  relic  from  the  Dark  Ages.  We  admire  France  and  the  USA  for  being  republics  where  all  persons  are  equal   for  the  law.

  • Don't worry, we have it all so, justice is coming where the real collusion and treason will be laid out so even the dense koolaid drinkers will see the evil of the swamp… WWG1 WGA

  • Hey if I was to start sniffing glue again, you think I could get me a job at MSNBC? I bet I could come up with some stuff you ain't never heard before.

  • Lowest ratings since Trump was elected! Fox News is kicking your lying, conspiracy toting butt. And Trump Jr will not be facing any charges for not honorinng the subpoena. Trump Jr testified for 30 hrs already. This subpoena is baseless and will not stand up in court-that's why he will not testify again. It's all fluff and fairy dust. Keep crying wolfe Rachel…I love watching your ratings tank!

  • Adrian Libis says:

    Wait a tick, a boatload of lawyers hired at Trump's own expenses? Have these lawyers not heard about Donnie's loooong history of stiffing the people he hired (even when he actually had the money to pay them), including some of the lawyers he hired to defend him against lawsuits by wronged employees and contractors? 😛

  • BMJSpitteler says:

    Personal expense, Rachel? He paid for his and his Son's and Son in Law's legal fees from the 2020 Campaign Coffers… $600000 from 2020 Campaign coffers was paid for that. The links are below.

    The previous Election's Campaign Coffers, paid him and his Family Businesses $9,6 million for "services rendered", i.e. the use of his Plane, I would assume different rooms at his own venues where meetings were held, etc. So, surprised, I am not. He has already funneled $600000 from the 2020 campaign https://www.wired.com/story/trump-2020-campaign-money/ DONALD TRUMP JNR paid ATTORNEY with funds from his father’s re-election campaign. http://www.salon.com/2017/07/15/donald-trump-jr-paid-attorney-with-funds-from-his-fathers-re-election-campaign-report/

    **** How much has his campaign paid Trump properties?

    Trump's campaign spent nearly $9.6 million through Oct. 19 reimbursing his companies and family for expenses, FEC filings show. That includes nearly $6.7 million to his private air charter, Tag Air, and $1.4 million to Trump Tower for rent and payroll. His campaign has made numerous payments to reimburse his hotels, including the new Trump International hotel in Washington, which was paid $13,431 for “facility rental and catering” on Oct. 17. Trump held a news conference at the hotel in September and appeared there again last week for a formal ribbon-cutting.

  • Is it possible that one of the judges who had to DRAG stuff out of the Mueller report that Barr had redacted, has the power to immediately take action against Barr for redacting things for personal and political reasons, and NOT because of privacy or security concerns?
    In other words that he illegally redacted stuff that Congress was entitled to receive? And wouldn't illegally redacting documents necessary for Congressional scrutiny be called – and charged – as some variety of violation of his oath of office, or a criminal act of obstruction of justice? And have him arrested right then and there?
    In fact, couldn't such a judge declare that Barr had no business in the first place, keeping the entire Mueller report from Congress, which had more right to it than he did? And that doing so was prima facie obstruction of justice? (on its face)

  • Native American says:

    Speaking of the courts….uber leftist Oberlin college in Ohio just got slapped with
    a 44 million dollar settlement to a store owner who was driven out of business by
    yet another racial discrimination hoax. Odd. Not a word about it on msnbc.
    Omission of the news qualifies as FAKE NEWS. But you folks don't care, do you?

  • Native American says:

    Maddow says, "Michael Cohen went to prison IN PART for paying hush money."
    A rap he could have easily beaten if he had chosen to fight it, but Mueller threatened him with a life sentence for more serious offenses. That's how prosecutors operate. Paying off two extortionist women is NOT a crime. Notice the personal checks signed by Trump Jr. that Maddow showed her audience. Its not from the campaign's account…..its a PERSONAL CHECK from Trump's Capital One bank account and DATED long after the election. Just more smarmy crap she feeds you people on a daily basis.

  • Leonard NII BOYE Mettle says:

    The only time I came across Micheal Cohen was at (51 Sheridan Road, off Abbey Road in Kent Area, UK). The property in my personal opinion is used for financial fraud purposes a con.

  • Leonard NII BOYE Mettle says:

    Lou Chrisfield resembling this news woman had a hand in arranging for me to be present at 51 Sheridan Road, off Abbey Road.

  • Russell Stamper says:

    The courts need to blanket all court cases,and change the time for ending all charges to never excuse if not completed.end the stalling.

  • fabian davey says:

    Trump is guilty for blocking everything he had on corruption fraud tax evasion on every deal trump did to avoid paying taxes on. He's going to jail

  • Trump is a criminal but by no means a criminal master mind and he needs to be in prison instead of being afforded all the attention that he's been receiving

  • Also it's about time all his idiotic supporters stop eating his excrement and urine and take their heads out of his posterior and wake up because his rump probably doesn't smell like either coffee or pork n beans and it quite possibly smells a whole lot worse

  • Why did Donnie say he would turn over his taxes…yet now that he lied to those that voted for him… because of ties to Russia…He stole money from the l.R S and honest folks who pay taxes…Most Americans…Get him out in2020…Lock his phoney ,lying not a patriot butt up after that….Take them down…The corrupt lot of them….
