Maddow shows what Trump was trying to distract from with his latest racist attacks [View all]

First, Maddow noted, there was “what they announced in terms of changes to asylum law … maybe this president’s most radical effort to change laws along racial lines since the Muslim ban that he tried to implement as soon as he got into office. It’s part of a larger mosaic in terms of how the president is running and using race to get himself reelected.”
“Today was the first day of only the second criminal trial to have resulted from the Mueller investigation and the Russia scandal,” said Maddow.
Also developing is the ongoing legal quagmire facing former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. “He pled guilty to lying about secret communications with the Russian government during the transition and became a cooperating witness at that time,” said Maddow. “Flynn was apparently a good cooperator for a while. The special counsel’s office recommended to Flynn’s sentencing judge that Mike Flynn should get zero time in prison as recognition of how much help he was able to provide them as a cooperating witness.” But all of that has subsequently fallen apart, as Flynn has hired a new team of confrontational defense attorneys and prosecutors have reclassified him from witness to co-conspirator.
“CNN obtained surveillance that appears to show how Wikileaks got that stolen material from Russian intelligence in the 2016 campaign and it is a fascinating story,” said Maddow.
“How do you keep this all in perspective?” concluded Maddow. “How high up do you need to get in elevation before you can look down at this news cycle alone and say yeah, this is fine. We can handle this. Just a remarkable day in the news.”


Says outrageous racist bollocks to keep us from focusing on the shit that could out his giant orange arse in jail... he is nothing but a deflection troll.
