‘This is despicable’: MSNBC’s Mika scorches GOP ‘suck-ups’ covering up Trump’s ‘felonious acts’

Published

MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski fired off a righteous rant against Republican lawmakers who are covering for President Donald Trump’s “felonious acts” that helped him win the 2016 election.

The “Morning Joe” co-host called out GOP House leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) for gloating about harming Hillary Clinton through trumped-up Benghazi hearings, and she shamed other Republicans for shrugging off revelations of Trump’s criminal conduct.

“It’s incredible — to me, this is despicable,” Brzezinski said.

She then shamed Republicans who insist refugee families should follow the rule of law at the border, while turning a blind eye to Trump’s violations.

“This is painful,” Brzezinski began. “The Republican Party screams that it must stand for the rule of law at the border, tear-gassing desperate families, but they’re not sure if they want to do the same at the White House — it doesn’t apply.”

“The Trump Justice Department has shown candidate Trump led a conspiracy by illegally directing the paying off of two alleged mistresses for their silence to help him win the election,” she continued. “The Republican reaction has been disgraceful. The top Republican in the House shamefully, pathetically says the law shouldn’t be enforced. What a suck-up.”

She said GOP senators — including Orrin Hatch, Chuck Grassley and John Kennedy — had essentially “become Trump” by trying to pin the blame on the president’s longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, to let the president wriggle off the hook.

“The same Republican Party that commands that the full extent of the law be brought down on 2-year-old babies ripped from their mother’s arms at the Mexican border believes we should ignore the apparently illegal actions of a billionaire who won the White House, quite possibly by committing felonious acts in the final weeks of the campaign,” Brzezinski said.

“In America,” she added, “no man is above the law, and they know that. But don’t tell that to these Republicans who continue to trash the rule of law, destroy their party and this country in the process. To me, I say good luck with that.”

DOJ employees urged to revolt against Bill Barr for throwing IG report ‘in the trash’ to defend Trump

Published

On MSNBC's "AM Joy," former federal prosecutor Cynthia Alksne excoriated Attorney General William Barr for his partisan suppression of the inspector general's conclusions about the FBI's Russia investigation.

"Here's the problem. The inspector general has already found that the — the investigation was not motivated in the way that Bill Barr is saying it is, and he's directly taking all the work of all the people and he's throwing it in the trash," said Alksne. "And he's added this other layer of an investigation and now he's broken all the rules, because one of the rules in an investigation is you don't talk about it in the middle, and he's done that. And it's a very threatening thing to the person who did the initial investigation, and it's also a way of putting his thumb on the scale with the guy who's doing the followup investigation, [U.S. Attorney John] Durham. He was talked into issuing a press release that was completely improper."

GOP ridiculed for hyping Ohio anti-impeachment protest — and only a handful of Trump supporters showed

Published

on

The official Twitter of account of the Republican National Committee was buried in mockery after hyping up a video of anti-impeachment protesters in Youngstown, Ohio, where it appears only a handful of people showed up.

According to the tweet, "Ohioans are sick and tired of the Democrats’ impeachment charade. It’s time to STOP THE MADNESS!"

However, in the video from WKBN, which can be seen below, few people chose to show up for the cameras.

As one commenter noted with tongue-in-cheek, "Thought Ohio had a few more people than that."

That was the general consensus in the comments.

GOP lawmaker scrambles for excuses after being cornered with McConnell’s promise to rig Trump impeachment

Published

On CNN Saturday, anchor Martin Savidge confronted Rep. Mike Johnson (R-LA), one of Trump's biggest defenders on cable television, about Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's claim that he was "coordinating" the impeachment strategy with the White House.

"Where is the impartiality there?" asked Savidge. "And it has to be a concern because, as you point out, you are an attorney and you would be worried if a member of the jury had already stated how they were going to consider."

"Yeah, we heard those comments yesterday, as everyone did," said Johnson. "You know, I've actually talked about this with some of my Democrat [sic] colleagues, those who are very much in favor of impeachment. I said isn't it a fair description of what he said? The way I heard that, Mitch McConnell is talking about the scheduling of the trial, what length of trial or what would be involved with that, with the White House, which is not unprecedented. That's what happened in the Clinton proceedings as well, they coordinated with the White House on scheduling. I don't think he's talking about the merits of the case. I think he's talking about how long will be allowed for this to go forward so I don't think there's anything inappropriate about that."
