The former assistant director for counterintelligence at the FBI presented a fascinating theory on one particular section of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
Frank Figliuzzi, an analyst for MSNBC, was interviewed by anchor Brian Williams during the network’s special coverage of the report’s release.
Reading through the report, Figliuzzi said, “I’m finding evidence of the mind of Mueller and even, perhaps, the mind of the grand jury sitting in this case.”
Figliuzzi drew attention to Appendix C of the report.
“So that appendix begins explaining that for over a year, Mueller sought and sought and fought for a personal sit-down with the president and of course, that was declined,” he explained. “And he discusses the insufficiency of written responses and why he needs to talk to the president, but then we see a redaction.”
“Now, I don’t know how to have x-ray vision…I can’t see through black ink very well, but I’m going to make an educated guess here based on the context of what comes before this blacked-out redaction and what comes immediately after it,” he said.
“But what is behind that redacted portion of the grand jury material? I think it is the grand jury saying we want the president in front of this grand jury, we need to know why he is not being interviewed personally,” Figliuzzi explained. “And that is the context I see this Appendix C giving us.”
‘He’s misunderstood’: Nikki Haley tells Fox News how Trump is actually a really good listener
Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.
Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."
"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.
"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.
She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."

Tucker Carlson: accepting more migrants to America would ‘despoil it’ and ‘make it a place you wouldn’t want to live’
During a segment with Justin Haskins, a "research" fellow at the far-right climate denial think tank, the Heartland Institute, Fox News host Tucker Carlson disparaged the idea of "climate migrants" who might need asylum from conditions caused by climate change — and escalated to an extreme, racist rant against accepting migrants at all.
"I thought, according to Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and everybody else on the socialist left, that human beings are causing climate change, that human CO2 emissions, that that's what's causing climate change, that it's going to be catastrophic" said Haskins. "Well if that's true, then why are we bringing people from all over the world, where they produce CO2 emissions less per person, in places like Mexico and Guatemala, places like that, why are we bringing them to the United States, where we produce CO2 emissions per person at a much higher rate?"
