Those who have spent the last year of their lives dedicated to cracking the case of Russia colluding with President Donald Trump were dealt a tough blow on Thursday.
And it was dealt to them, in part, by their fellow liberal, MSNBC host Chris Matthews.
After disgruntled former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Matthews concluded that there is no “there there.”
“The big story to me has always been — the assumption of the critics of the president, of his pursuers, you might say, is that somewhere along the line in the last year, the president had something to do with colluding with the Russians,” Matthews said.
“Something to do, a helping hand, encouraging them, feeding their desire, to affect the election in some way, some role they played, some conversation he had with Michael Flynn, or Paul Manafort, or somewhere.
“And yet what came apart this morning, was that theory,” he continued.
“Because in two regards the president said according to the written testimony of Mr. Comey, ‘go ahead and get anybody satellite to my operation and nail them, I’m with you on that,’ so that would mean Manafort, Carter Page, someone else like that.
“And then he also came across today, what was fascinating, Comey said that basically, Flynn wasn’t central to the Russian investigation, that he was touching on it. That there was, of course, Flynn had an honest, we assume, wasn’t honest in his answer on the official forms that he had to fill out to become a national security head.
“But it only touched on that, it wasn’t really related to that. But he could be flipped for that, but in other words, they could flip him because they had him caught on something he dishonestly answered but he wasn’t central, it seemed, to the Russian thing, and I always assumed that Trump was afraid of was that he had said something to Flynn, and Flynn could be flipped on that,” Matthews said. “And Flynn would testify against the president that he had had some conversation with Flynn in terms of dealing with the Russians affirmatively.
“And if that’s not the case, where’s the there there? If it isn’t Manafort because he wants to throw him under the bus, and Flynn wasn’t central to the investigation, where is the concern that Trump has, that has put him on defense for all these months?” Matthews continued. “That’s my question coming out of the morning hearing.”
If you’ve lost Chris Matthews off the Trump / Russia train, the wheels are coming off.
Many on social media=, including Donald Trump Jr., agreed.
