On Wednesday, MSNBC’s Vaughn Hilliard was “taken back” by Vice President Mike Pence after he continued to perpetuate lies about President Donald Trump.
Pence said that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report said that Trump did not obstruct justice.
“Just to be clear that lie keeps getting perpetuated that the report came to the conclusion that there was no obstruction,” MSNBC host Ali Velshi said. “Just so we’re all clear, it didn’t actually do that. It actually found many instances of obstruction. It came to the conclusion it was not going to indict the president or others. Just want to be clear because the president and his people keep saying that and it’s just misinformation.”
Hilliard, who asked Pence the question said he was “taken back” by the vice president’s response.
“To be honest with you, I was taken back by what you heard by the vice president’s answer there,” he said. “What has not happened from the vice president or the president, are the reckoning of the use of the hacked emails from their democratic opponents in 2016. Until they say that and pledge to not do it again in the future, I think the question has to be asked of the vice president and everyone else in the administration.”

Veteran newsman Dan Rather tears up trying to motivate Americans during coronavirus crisis
Veteran newsman Dan Rather teared up talking about American exceptionalism during times of crisis.
Speaking to CNN's Don Lemon, who had a special show late Sunday evening, Rather learned over the weekend that friend and former CBS colleague Maria Mercader had lost her life to the coronavirus.
Lemon asked if Rather had ever experienced anything like this in his life, and he said the closest thing would be the 1918 flu epidemic that killed millions, but it was before Rather was born.
"Your question, how do we get through it? I fully understand people are anxious, worried. They're fearful. The way we get through it is to remember in this 'land of the Pilgrims' Pride, land where our father's died,' we are not descended from people with any crowdedness whatsoever," he cited lyrics from "My Country 'Tis of Thee," his voice cracking with emotion. "What is needed is a little resolve and a little courage keeping in mind that courage is being afraid but going ahead and doing what you do anyway. We're at the decisive moment, what we need is each and every one of us to must aero little bit of courage, and we'll get through it."
MSNBC host goes off on Trump for ‘choosing to ignore’ intelligence on coronavirus: ‘That’s a provable lie’
MSNBC had a panel discussion about Sunday about the ways in which President Donald Trump has ignored all of the intelligence that warned him that a health crisis was coming.
Reports have surfaced over the past several weeks about the information that Trump received urged him to prepare for the coronavirus, but it was ignored. U.S. intelligence agencies were sounding the alarm in January and February that a pandemic was likely and that it would come to the United States, the Washington Post reported. Trump ignored the reports. Politico reported that the Trump team failed to heed warnings about a pandemic by top advisers. Those people are now gone from the administration.
Justice Department is looking into stock transactions made by Richard Burr ahead of market crash: CNN
Before the Dow Jones markets crashed, Republican elected officials on key committees were caught selling off hefty sums of stocks. It's a crime to use insider information from the government or the business to profit, but that's exactly what economics experts think these officials did. Now at least one of those officials is being investigated, CNN reported Sunday.
One, in particular, was Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), who dumped $1.6 million in stocks after he tried to tell the American people that everything was fine and the country was prepared for the coronavirus.
