Mueller’s FBI agents will blow the whistle on AG Barr if he covers up for Trump: National security expert

Published

on

National security expert Malcolm Nance explained Saturday morning why Attorney General Bill Barr won’t be able to cover up special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on alleged Russian collusion even if he tries.

“The fact that this investigation takes place within the justice Department — which Donald Trump essentially controls and he got rid of the problem with Jeff Sessions, who the one decent thing that he did was recuse himself — this guy is not recused, it feels like the seeds of a cover-up are here,” host Joy Reid said on AM Joy.

Nance said that although it “theoretically” could happen, it’s not likely because “Bill Barr is one guy.”

“There are secretaries, there are people who have to handle these documents,” the former Naval intelligence officer mused. “There are the FBI agents who did this themselves. I don’t think that there’s room for a cover-up because, why cover up the greatest scandal in the history of the United States with the greatest scandal in the history of the United States?”

Nance added that he doesn’t see that happening because if Barr or the White House try to cover the Mueller report up, “then you can just see copies of this thing falling out by the pallet-load in front of The Washington Post.”

Manufacturing activity in New York State took a record dive this month and fell into contraction, suddenly reversing recent gains, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York reported Monday.

Manufacturing has been a weak spot for the American economy this year as global demand slows and President Donald Trump pursues a multi-front trade war with some of America's largest trading partners.

Mohammed Morsi, the former Egyptian president who was ousted by the military in 2013, has died after collapsing in court, state TV said on Monday.

Morsi, who hailed from Egypt's largest Islamist group, the now outlawed Muslim Brotherhood, was elected president in 2012 in the country's first free elections following the ouster the year before of longtime leader Hosni Mubarak.

NBC SCOTUS reporter Pete Williams: ‘I don’t know what the Court wins’ in anti-gay Sweetcakes case ‘except time’

Published

on

NBC News' Pete Williams has won three national news Emmy awards. He has a reputation for offering very factual reports with little to no personal opinion. Williams for decades has primarily covered the U.S. Supreme Court and Justice Department.

Monday morning on MSNBC Williams gave his report on the Supreme Court's order in the "Sweetcakes" case, involving an Oregon Christian couple who refused to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple. The case is exceptionally more complicated than that – including alleged doxxing of the same-sex couple and the subsequent death threats they say they received.
