Published

Former Watergate prosecutor Nick Ackerman on Tuesday predicted special counsel Robert Mueller had obtained “significant evidence” that the 2016 Donald Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government.

Ackerman joined MSNBC’s “The Beat” with host Ari Melber” to discuss the news that Mueller concluded former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort violated his plea deal.

“How does this bombshell impact the collusion part of the probe?” Melber asked.

“Oh, I think this is what the probe’s all about — it’s about conspiracy, not collusion,” he replied. “Conspiracy is the crime and this more evidence of that conspiracy.”

“Bob Mueller has significant evidence on conspiracy,” Ackerman predicted.

“They are the co-conspirators on the American side, they are part of — at least — the staging and release of those emails,” he argued.

“But this new evidence almost makes you believe that it’s possible they were also involved in the conspiracy to hack into the DNC in the first place,” Ackerman noted.

“The bottom line is Mueller’s got the evidence of conspiracy,” he concluded. “That is the big headline from yesterday’s news.”

Republicans lack the ‘moxie’ to defend America’s Kurdish allies in Syria: Ex-RNC Chair

Published

on

Republicans will criticize President Donald Trump on foreign policy, but lack the nerve to do anything meaningful to protect America's Kurdish allies in northern Syria, the former chair of the Republican Party explained on MSNBC on Wednesday.

MSNBC's Chuck Todd interviewed Steele about what it would take for Republicans to serve as a check on the president.

"I think the only way to make him change his mind is -- he’s got to think they might walk," Todd said.

"Well, that would require a level of moxie that we haven’t seen from the leadership," Steele replied.

"On the foreign policy space, I think that’s the one area where we’ve seen people actually start to push back rhetorically," he noted. "But I don’t know if internally they’ve really sat down with the president and go, 'This is how damaging this is, this is how troublesome it is, and this is the problem you’re having inside the caucus.' I just don’t — at least from the folks I’ve talked to, I haven’t gotten the sense they’ve gone there yet."
