‘Game-changer’: MSNBC panelists explain magnitude of ‘devastating’ Kushner revelations

Published

on

Tonight’s breaking news that Jared Kushner allegedly sought to set up a secret backchannel communication system with the Kremlim is rocking the White House as the Memorial Day weekend begins.

Panelists on MSNBC were dumbfounded by the latest revelations about Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russians.

“I really think this Washington Post story tonight is a game-changer,” NBC News investigative reporter Ken Dilanian told Steve Kornaki. “It is a devastating story because it casts these Russian meetings in a new light, it suggests that Jared Kushner and potentially the Trump Transition was trying to disguise its communications with Russia.”

“It’s a bombshell, all right,” Nick Confessore confirmed about what he described as “a catastrophic and terrible mistake” that was “totally bone-headed” to do.

“It goes to the different perspective that the Trump family and the Kushner family had about Russia when they came in,” Confessore explained. “From their perspective, in their world, the Russians were deal partners, friends, people who put money into their projects.”

“The optics of this are just terrible,” Katherine Rampell remarked.

Erik Prince also features in this bizarre scandal. As does Mike Flynn, of course.

“I think she’d want to be the [first] female president,” said Marissa Velez Kraxberger, a film producer who worked for Ivanka for two years at her now-defunct company. “I don’t think she’s actually ever had any interest in fashion but everything was an angle to gain more power in whatever possible way.”

GOP senator knows Trump lost but thinks it would be ‘political suicide’ to admit it: report

Published

on

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) is still spouting conspiracy theories about the election being "stolen" from President Donald Trump -- but according to one former Wisconsin Republican official, Johnson understands that Trump lost.

Mark Becker, the former Chairman of the Brown County Republican Party, writes at The Bulwark that he had a conversation with Johnson after the election in which the senator acknowledged Trump's defeat.

However, Johnson said that he was loath to admit it publicly because of the strong support the president had received from Wisconsin GOP voters, despite the fact that the president narrowly lost the state this year.

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough mocked Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) for demanding proof of something that doesn't exist.

Attorney General William Barr announced the Department of Justice had found no evidence of voter fraud, as President Donald Trump has claimed, and Johnson called on Barr to "show everybody" the proof that the election had not been stolen.

"The man Guinness Book of World Records has called the dumbest senator to ever be sworn in in this constitutional republic," Scarborough said. "I'm speaking, of course, of Ron Johnson, who said that William Barr must show his evidence that he has no evidence."
