Matt Whitaker is learning in real time that it's easier to be a pundit & lie on TV than to be an acting AG and lie under oath.

New Intel Committee's Russia probe is much broader than America or Trump expected: Rachel Maddow

New Intel Committee’s Russia probe is much broader than America — or Trump — expected: MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow


MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow could not contain her excitement Wednesday when describing in-depth how broad the House Intelligence Committee’s newly-reinstated Russia investigation under Democratic leadership is to be.

“This is not what I was expecting,” Maddow said. “This is way more of a capital-D ‘doozy’ than anybody was expecting outside of this committee.”

The host outlined the five main avenues the committee’s investigation is set to explore: the “scope and scale” of Russia’s electoral interference; potential collusion between Donald Trump’s campaign, transition and administration and foreign governments; whether Trump or his family or business associates have been compromised by “foreign actors”; whether Trump or his associates were vulnerable to foreign intelligence; and whether the president obstructed justice.

Maddow pointed out that the third point — essentially investigating whether Trump or anyone near him acted as a foreign agent — is perhaps the most startling to come from Congress.

“The Intelligence Committee is also going to investigate, quote, ‘whether any foreign actor has sought to compromise or holds level, financial or otherwise, over Donald Trump, his family, his business, or his associates,'” she read.

“This means they’re now officially and with subpoena power investigating directly the thing that you shout out in the dark in the middle of the night when you wake up sweating and you thought it was a dream and you didn’t realize you said it out loud,” Maddow added. “You know how you wake up in the night drenched in sweat saying ‘what if the president is a foreign agent? That’s point number three.”

The host later said that she wasn’t sure Trump was aware of such a broad investigation when he made his strange rhyming aside claiming “if there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation” during the State of the Union the night prior.

“I don’t know what the president was hoping for last night when he decided to say in his State of the Union address that Congress shouldn’t investigate him anymore or the country gets it,” Maddow quipped, “but I cannot imagine this was the desired result of that now indelible and permanent line that will always be part of the history of the Trump presidency and the history of the State of the Union address in America.”

REVEALED: Alleged pee-tape source asked Papadopoulos to work for Trump and Russia after election

REVEALED: Alleged pee-tape source asked George Papadopoulos to work for both Trump and Russia — after the election

The man behind the salacious and unproven claim that President Donald Trump hired Russian prostitutes to perform a “golden shower” during a trip to Moscow also met with former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos after the 2016 presidential election and offered him employment opportunities.

In a major new Washington Post report, it’s revealed that Papadopulos met with a man named Sergei Millian, who is described as the “unwitting” source for former British spy Christopher Steele’s claims about Trump and Russian prostitutes.

After the 2016 election, the two men dined at a Washington, D.C.-based restaurant called the Russia House, which is regularly frequented by Russian diplomats. The dinner was the culmination of an outreach campaign by the Belarus-born Millian in which he offered Papadopoulos “a lucrative consulting contract to work simultaneously for Trump and an unidentified Russian, which Papadopoulos said he rebuffed.”

Papadopoulos now believes that Millian was an FBI plant looking to frame Trump campaign officials for working with Russia to interfere in the 2016 presidential election. However, the FBI claims that it was not employing Millian as an intelligence source.

The Post’s report also shows how Millian regularly boasted of his connections to Trump’s businesses throughout the 2016 campaign, including one interview on a Russian state-run news program where he claimed to be an “exclusive broker” for Trump in selling condo units in Miami to Russian investors.

FLOTUS is bringing a kid named Joshua Trump to the State of the Union. “Unfortunately, Joshua has been bullied in school due to his last name. He is thankful to the First Lady and the Trump family for their support.”

If a sunflower on your lawn somehow convinced the sprinkler to water only it....

Anand Giridharadas RE: Billionaires like Howard Schultz...who don't want to be taxed...

If a sunflower on your lawn somehow convinced the sprinkler to water only it, you bet it would require punishing the sunflower to do right by the millions of blades of grass.
