Comments
  1. Come on, we want the “unindicted co-conspirator”’s information! Release the Mueller Report! By the way, it will become available on audible.com when it comes out …. free!

  2. On a Moral Standing I have a problem with Trump as a President. However, Mueller himself announced there would be NO MORE INDICTMENTS. Since the moment he said that why should we care about the report? Nothing in the report will change the fact that the FBI will NOT INDICT any more individuals. Can we please move on to to the other litigation that is currently active?

  3. Rachel who pays your salary. The military industrial complex. Keep pushing war. So sad Hillary didn't win, so many more bombs would've been dropped by now. Don't worry Rachel, Trump will drop your bombs and the Koch brothers will make money. Good job with another smoke screen story. Wake up Dems

  4. This is sad and pitiful. I imagine once the report becomes public, Rachell will back up to the next argument that the report was really written by China or North Korea. The two year run on this unfounded bs is about to end… meanwhile Fox News has 4 of the 5 top rated news shows… and cnn’s highest rating is 23. The left is eating itself, and viewers/voters are leaving by the millions. Between antifa and Rachel’s pitiful ax to grind, the left looks like bitter angry children. I like rachell but she needs to lick her wounds and find another fight.

  5. After your president blindly states on a whim "Let's get rid of judges"… and you still support him? You are a MORON.

  6. On which date can I expect my refund check in the mail after making all that money from lying to us for 3 years?

  7. You wouldn't know country anything if it hit you in the face, you sissy liberal yankee conspiracy nut case. What's next you want a big foot investigation??

  8. Can you just read the news? Your ad libs and explanations are painful and terrible. (((( I usually try to avoid clicking on your segments even when I'm intrigued

  9. This Is unbelievable Rachel Maddow the first guy you introduced have you seen his insidious decorem. I cannot believe you are still going on with this . You Rachel are a disgrace to any even minor form of Journalism . This Is Sick at this stage . You Rachel and MSNBC sold a false narrative to The American people and the World for two years about a collusion that in my my opinion you all knew was false . You are Despicable . Shame on You. You are now going on with the same shameful incorrect information on I believe a few Million Dollars a Year.

  10. I start thinking Trump is actually innocent, but his dementia is so bad that he's not sure / thinking that he is guilty, and hence trying to prevent this as much as possible … OR … perhaps he is smartest man ever … he is innocent, pretend to be guilty, while claiming being innocent, so when at the end material get released, he can then tell you so, and his Trumpaloompas will march in victory parades all across the country chanting Trump2020. It's basically playing poker with a kid … you have no f-in idea on what's going on …

  11. I would love to hear Rachel in what she would recommend how an average person might try and possibly succeed in crossing an average Road. I would suspect it would take several days . What is strange about all this is that . This Lady Man or whatever earns about 6 million dollars spewings all this useless information.

  12. tRump's new golf caddy, William Barr, has dropped a ball in the middle of the fairway after his boss lobed his shot into the water.

  13. I am really starting to believe we are in the end day's and tRUMP is the Antichrist. Check out brother James Keys yt channel

  14. A modest proposal: draft General McMasters to run for President. He's also an historian, and inarguably a patriot. Protector of the realm? The precedent for this may be centuries old. But continuity is what we need now.

  15. You people should really try to get over Hillary losing, the Russia hoax, & all this anti-Trump nonsense, cause us deplorables on the Trump train, & the American economy, are having a GREAT time!! Trump 2020!

  16. Well of course there is something nefarious in that report, Trump didnt reorganize the departments like old furniture for nothing. All the firings were about putting in a layer of protection for himself. Butt kissing Loyalist. This is not only corrupt, people, its dangerous.

  17. Rachel Maddox is good at giving opinions and spreading fake news. Fakes are far more important. Here are some most US citizens truly appreciate:

  18. GOOD NEWS~~ Some democrats are beginning to see President Trump's right about medicare for all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYr9gUivPSo

  19. Peter Strozk and Lisa Page were originally on the Mueller team. Need I say more?
    The investigators are getting investigated now. Nunes has got the ball rolling. That's the real news. Only idiots believe Rachel Maddow now.

  20. Why cannt you wait at list until the report comes out then. If u dnt agree then start screaming and wauling. U crazy woman. No you are mad insane serious.

  21. This is the same Blumenthal who lied about his service claiming to be a Vietnam veteran. He lies if his lips are moving. Yet he'll find credibility among the two or three dozen viewer of Madcow's show.

  22. Oh Rachel, You are not good at your job. They use the term "reporting" for what you do. You are not a reporter. You are a commentator who allows your extreme bias to color your comments. It is so sad that you won't move on. You are pathetic.

  23. Dems continue to Lie Lie Lie. Barrs letter to congress was not a summary at all. It was a statement of the conclusions made by Mueller. Thats all. They couldnt wait for a statement from Barr.. They wanted something immediately. So he gave them the conclusions within 48 hrs and that a report will be forthcoming.
    But Dems just keep on lying and lying and lying

  24. After congress cited Attorney General Holder for contempt of congrress: President Obama and the Justice Department declined to prosecute the attorney general on the contempt charge citing EXECUTIVE PRIVILEGE.

  25. It's because democrats were found to be in a lie as evidenced by the Comey testimony…. How did that go for you?

  26. no need to talk in circles to drag out a 3 minute statement to 20 minutes…. Add more info or find another job.

  27. Madcow where is that crazy thing? Madcow where are you? A bell rings in the distance. Oh she's rolling around in the pig pen again. Bad Madcow.

  28. All props to Jimmy Stewart for flashing that 'simple country lawyer' business in Anatomy of a Murder back in the 1950s

  29. Rachel Maddow is going to look like even more of a dumb*** when all of her "new" propaganda blows up in her face..

  30. Rachel you should be proud of yourself for feeding so much raw sewage to your devoted fans. It will come back on you someday in spades.

  31. Miss Meadow you are so thural with your research and facts. America thanks you. I thank you. I hope MSNBC gives you a promotion. I like Joy Reed too.

  32. The problem is that Trump hates studying anything. He can't read well. Tony Schwartz who wrote, "The Art of the Deal," said in 18 months of being in Trump's huge apartment in Trump Tower he never saw ONE BOOK.! Trump can't even use a computer and he has an aide or his son write his tweets. Trump thinks he's about the law. He cheats at anything he can like his golf game. He even drives on the green! He takes the people's balls he's playing with and throws them off the fairway! It says everything about him. Won't show his tax returns and now this. If we aren't allowed to see this report we only have ourselves to blame. That we have a dictator who can do anything he wants and there are traitors who help him do whatever he wants. He really believes he's above the law and we have to prove to him he's wrong! He has NO morals at all and no conscience. Trump would live well in China where their philosophy is, "if you can cheat someone. . cheat them." That's why hundreds of foreign businesses are moving out. They are cheated and the laws always favor the Chinese. Now Xi is kicking foreigners out and shutting down the country so he can be the dictator and tyrant he is and there won't be any outsiders to see it and tell the world. He's already kicked out Google. No Chinese can use it and like Kim Jong Un, Xi is putting a clamp on information in and out. It's so very sad. And hundreds of thousands of Chinese have lost their jobs. 🙁 Songs

  33. We paid for them and we should see them. This really makes me furious. Trump has NO right to keep this from us.

  34. You gonna talk about Obama’s campaign aid and advisor too, Rachel?

    BBC reports:
    The case against Gregory Craig, 74, arose from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's inquiry into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
    His lobbying was allegedly linked to ex-Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort's political efforts in Ukraine.
    Lawyers for Mr Craig denied the charges before they were filed.
    The charges against Mr Craig claim he lied to federal prosecutors in the Department of Justice about his foreign lobbying efforts and concealed information about his private work in Ukraine for the Russian-backed government.
    If convicted, he could face a maximum of five years in jail for each count along with over $250,000 (£191,000) in fines.

  35. Unfortunately the AG is a BIG a LIAR as Donald! What he doesn't know, is that IF he doesn't release that FULL REPORT to the congress and the AMERICAN people, that FULL REPORT is going to find it's way into the hands of the news media, and the AMERICAN people….that's the joke of his attempts to prevent it's TRUE revelation! Mr. Barr is NOT going to win in the end…the DEMS are being polite, trying to fully cooperate WITH THE LAW….BUT, at some point they are going to have to SHOW their POWER….and when they do, I cannot wait to SEE that Mueller Report!

  36. Barr believes America is in decline because the country has strayed away from the teachings of the bible. He's a Super Catholic. He wants religionmorality, taught in the classroom. His religious fanaticism is the reason why he is defending Trump. He believes America is at the brink, and only Trump can save it.

    These bible thumpers think they're saving America by helping Trump…. It's SO backwards!
    TRUMP IS MORALLY BANKRUPT!

    How can America's morality to be restored by a person with no morals. ITS BONKERS. It makes no sense!

  37. I read all quiet an the western front shortly after I graduated high school, it took me out of my comfort zone for sure to this day I am reminded of that book , then there is Beowulf a good book I enjoyed as well and others we need to read more in this country .

  38. There is obviously a cover uo going on here. We have seen trump continually attempt to stonewall this investigation and its findings. What is it trump covering up? Something is seriously wrong here. We are witnessing the unraveling of our democracy.
    All of trumps policies and orders are punitive and only serves he and his cronies , not the United States of America or we the people. It's time to enforce rhe law.
    Stop this Fascist pig trump now!
    We want that report and we want to see trump's taxes.
    He's a criminal , he needs to be exposed.
    Impeach indict imprison.

  39. The DIRT in the Mueller report MUST be a REAL Wallapalooza!
    Does Trump and his THUGS think we are that stupid?
    We can NOW only ASSUME that Trump is SO GUILTY that he will be LOCKED UP for the rest of his life. ALONG WITH ALL his treasonous henchmen.
    This is NOT going to end well for the Cesspool which is the Whitehouse Occupents.

  40. If this proves your innocent on all fronts, you would be happy to let everyone read the report!! So, tired of this. Reps, join the dems and Indies and do your job. We need to be sure this man is not selling out our citizens or our country.

  41. Barr's statement that Meuller is redacting the material that is protected is a Trump-like maneuver of blaming someone else (frequently Obama with Trump) for problems – both acts of commission and/or omission.

  42. Here’s Rachel. Fake news msnbc. Reports say this or that .She shows Blumenthal who lied to America about his fake service in Vietnam. Rachael knows the report must be redacted for classified reasons. Trump is trying nothing with the report, he wants the entire report released. Nadler is misleading America again.

  43. This lady maddow is in an alternate reality. Her reporting is wishful thinking of a vengeful beast lady who's been scorn.

  44. Remember when journalism was fair and unbiased? Every newscast gave equal time to BOTH sides, no editorializing

  45. NYS AG just made this is a moot point. NYS has gotten the Deutsche bank records for real estate transactions in real estate deals.

    When you are doing a financial investigations, guess what you get. You get the NYS tax returns. They are based on federal returns. NYS has both. Trump has no recourse for NYS crimes.

  46. Thank God Trump is the President. Booming Economy, no Collusion, yes, stated by Mueller. Our border will get much more secured over next 6 more years under Trump and many other great things! Time for the Democrats to move on as this horrible witch-hunt and accusations for almost 3 years now is over. But when you have no plan, keep beating a DEAD HORSE!

  47. Surly the Muller Report has more than one copy that would still be in the hands of Muller. So if anything is redacted or actually taken out of the report, the copy can be compared to that one that Barr has in hand. Now, perhaps there is no other copy and perhaps it would not be lawful for there to be a copy of the report. Not sure about this.

  48. Actually I hope you redacted that statement.
    Mueller said he is very unsettled with Piglosi
    Once again BS Fake news
