WATCH: MSNBC panel lays out how Trump’s posture towards Russia shows collusion may be ongoing

Published

on

President Donald Trump’s attacks on those investigating him have caused many to view his conduct as continuing obstruction of justice. On Wednesday’s “Deadline: White House” on MSNBC, the question became whether there might also be ongoing collusion with Russia.

“Russia’s top spy is on the U.S. sanctions list, he isn’t allowed to be in the United States without special permission,” Wallace noted. “He’s listed on the Department of the Treasury’s blocked persons list.”

“So, why was he here meeting with U.S. government officials?” Wallace asked.

“Is it a coincidence we’re not going to enforce our sanctions?” Wallace asked NBC analyst John Heilemann. “Just an extraordinary thing.”

“I have no theory about what this is about,”John Heilemann admitted. “I have no idea, but it is so much part — we as humans do pattern recognition — it is so consistent with the large pattern of the odd, disturbing cozying up to Russia that has happened from the moment Donald Trump stood on the national stage all the way up to this very day as he sits there in the White House.”

“Look, if this were a bad action movie, I would have left the theater by now,” Jason Johnson, the politics editor for The Root explained.

“You would think they’re sticking jump drives in his laptop whenever he goes to the bathroom,” Johnson continued.

“If you let the spy agency in — that is directly responsible for affecting our elections — on the same day the president says I’m not going to put through the sanctions that my own Republican-led Senate voted for, let’s be clear we just handed away our power, we have handed away our sovereignty,” Johnson concluded. “It’s just ridiculous.”

“We talked about the Mueller investigation as though it has now been reduced to an obstruction of justice investigation,” Wallace noted.

“But we also wonder aloud whether the obstruction of justice is ongoing. Might the collusion also be ongoing?” Wallace asked.

The giant retailer will lay off about 570 employees and close its corporate office near the Charlotte airport, despite signing a 12-year lease just four years earlier, the Charlotte Business Journal reported.

The work done at the Charlotte facility will be outsourced to a firm in Arkansas, according to the report.

"Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!" Melania Trump tweeted Monday.

The response was some of the harshest since she wore an "I Don't Care" jacked to visit the border.

Donald Trump on the US-Mexico Border

On Sunday, Austin Savage and five of his friends huddled into an SUV and went to an El Paso Target, loading up on diapers, wipes, soaps and toys.

About $340 later, the group headed to a Border Patrol facility holding migrant children in nearby Clint with the goal of donating their goods. Savage said he and his friends had read an article from The New York Times detailing chaos, sickness and filth in the overcrowded facility, and they wanted to help.

But when they arrived, they found that the lobby was closed. The few Border Patrol agents — Savage said there were between eight and 10 of them — moving in and out of a parking facility ignored them.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
