MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace unleashed on Democrats for refusing to step up and fight back against President Donald Trump.
She was joined by former Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Frank Figliuzzi the former Assistant Director for Counterintelligence at the FBI, both of whom demanded to know what Democrats were thinking.
“It’s time — it’s past time for [Robert Mueller] to talk about his report,” Figliuzzi said, wondering why officials didn’t call him to testify as soon as possible. “And as much of that testimony needs to be an open hearing, not behind closed doors.”
That’s when Wallace dropped the truth bomb that is going to infuriate Democrats.
“I’m going to say something that is going to keep me off Twitter for a week,” she cautioned. “When Democrats lose elections, this is why… The opposite of ‘I can’t say crimes were committed’ is to a political communicator’ crimes were committed.’ And if Democrats don’t have the you-know-whats to assert that and let people — let the president’s lawyers go out and say ‘Well, he did and found ten instances between a nexus and occurrence and proceeding were not exactly met,’ but let Trump explain that crime wasn’t committed in the obstruction section.”
McCaskill called BS on Mueller’s claim that he doesn’t have a responsibility to talk about his report.
“He knows what Barr did,” she continued. “This is not a dumb man. He knows Barr totally screwed him in terms of the way he put the report out there before Mueller had a chance to have his summary or to have his conclusions presented in a fair way.”
She went on to say that Judiciary Chair Jerry Nadler (D-NY) needed to have Mueller in front of the committee yesterday.
“Jerry Nadler needs to quit doing press conferences on the need for impeachment and start explaining to the American people why a subpoena wasn’t issued the next day,” she said.
“That’s such a good point. Have called and told him that?” Wallace asked.
“No, I haven’t,” McCaskill admitted.
“Can we call him?” Wallace asked, looking for her cell phone.
“Let’s get him on the phone!” McCaskill agreed.

Wisconsin political professor shatters the biggest misconception about Trump’s base with a revealing poll
One of the most enduring ideas the general public, and especially Democrats, have about President Donald Trump's supporters is that they are bound by an unflappable, cult-like devotion to the president that transcends any sort of logic, reason, or reservations.
But in a lengthy thread on Twitter Tuesday, former University of Wisconsin-Madison professor and Marquette Law School Poll Director Charles Franklin revealed polling data that show this isn't quite true. There are plenty of solid Trump partisans — but voters supporting Trump are, on average, less attached to him than voters opposing Trump are repelled by him:

A Morrow County, Ohio first grade student was able to pick up and point a loaded gun at a fellow student, saying, “Put your hands behind your back your [sic] arrested,” according to The Columbus Dispatch. The gun was left unattended, possibly for as long as 30 minutes and belongs to Vicky Nelson, the first grade student’s grandmother who is also the school district’s transportation director.
Trump told NRA’s Wayne LaPierre he’s not ‘waffling’ anymore — background checks are off the table
President Donald Trump made a congratulatory phone call to National Rifle Association CEO Wayne LaPierre to let the far-right organization know that the White House was reversing itself and would not be supporting universal background checks for firearms sales.
Following shooting massacres in Gilroy, California, El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio, Trump had argued the time was now for background checks.
"Republicans and Democrats must come together and get strong background checks," Trump argued. "Perhaps marrying this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. We must have something good, if not GREAT, come out of these two tragic events!"
