The Donald Trump Russia Political Crisis: A Timeline In Breaking News | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


JOHNSON, THANK YOU SO MUCH. THAT IS ALL IN FOR THIS EVENING. THE RACHEL MADDOW STARTS RIGHT NOW.>>>POP QUIZ. HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE HELD THE POSITION OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD THAT JOB? IF YOU ANSWERED 45, IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT YOU WOULD ANSWER THAT WAY. EVERYBODY, INCLUDING OUR CURRENT PRESIDENT CALLS DONALD TRUMP THE 45th PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? IF WE’RE COUNTING HIM AS 45, TECHNICALLY THAT MEANS WE’RE COUNTING GROVER CLEVELAND TWICE BECAUSE HE WAS THE 22nd AND 24th PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. AND I’M SURE THAT GROVER CLEVELAND LOVES TO BE COUNTED TWICE. BUT IF WE’RE TALKING ABOUT INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE, ONLY 44 PEOPLE INCLUDING THE CURRENT PRESIDENT HAVE ACTUALLY HELD THAT JOB. HERE’S ANOTHER ITEM ON OUR QUIZ. HOW MANY PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS HAVE WE HELD IN THIS COUNTRY. THE ANSWER TO THAT IS 58. A LOT OF TWO-TERMERS AND ONE FOUR TERMER. WE STARTED HAVING THEM IN THE 1700s, 1789. IN TERMS OF WHICH AMERICAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION HAS BEEN THE MOST CONTENTIOUS, THAT IS UP FOR DEBATE AND EVERY CENTURY HAS ITS CANDIDATE. WHICH ONE WAS HEAVILY SCRUTINIZED AFTER THE FACT, THAT IS PRETTY CLEAR THAT WE’RE LIVING IT RIGHT NOW. THERE WERE HINTS BEFORE THE NOVEMBER ELECTION THAT SOMETHING WAS OFF, SOMETHING WAS GOING ON IN THIS ONE THAT WAS DIFFERENT. IT ALL SEEMED ALMOST TOO BIG TO GRASP AT THE TIME, IN THE MIDDLE OF WHAT WAS ALREADY THIS INCREDIBLY INTERESTING CAMPAIGN, THIS INCREDIBLY VOLATILE CAMPAIGN. BUT IN THE MIDDLE OF ALL OF THAT THERE WAS AN EXTERNAL FOREIGN DYNAMIC AT WORK. BEGINNING WITH THE NEWS LAST SUMMER THAT THE E-MAIL SERVERS OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY HEADQUARTERS HAD BEEN HACKED BY RUSSIAN HACKERS. AND THE NEWS THAT VOTER REGISTRATION SYSTEMS IN AT LEAST TWO STATES OR MAYBE TEN STATES OR MAYBE 20 STATES HAD BEEN PROBED OR BREACHED TO SOME LEVEL BY AGAIN, HACKERS. BY OCTOBER, A MONTH BEFORE THE ELECTION, THE UNITED STATES INTELLIGENCE AGENCY CAME OUT AND SAID WHILE THEY COULDN’T AGREE THAT IT WAS DEFINITELY THE RUSSIANS BEHIND THE VOTER REGISTRATION HACKS, THEY SAID THEY WERE CONFIDENT THAT THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT HAD DEFINITELY DIRECTED THE HACKING OF THE DNC AND OTHER AMERICAN POLITICAL ORGANIZATIONS IN ORDER TO QUOTE INTERFERE WITH THE U.S. ELECTION PROCESS. SO THE BIZARRE STORY OUT OF ALL OF THE WEIRD STUFF THAT’S HAPPENED IN AMERICAN ELECTIONS, THIS STORY, OUR STORY, OUR GENERATION’S STORY OF THE BIZARRE RUSSIAN HACKING OF OUR ELECTION, THAT STORY WAS AT LEAST STARTING TO EMERGE IN THE WEEKS BEFORE THE ELECTION. BUT AT THE SAME TIME, YOU KNOW, AS USUAL, A AS NORMAL, THERE WAA SUPER CONTENTIOUS FASCINATING PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN GOING ON. AND THAT WAS VERY ENGROSSING AT THE TIME. AND IT WAS NOT UNTIL AFTER THE ELECTION THAT THE EXTENT OF THE RUSSIAN INVOLVEMENT IN OUR PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION REALLY CAME TO LIGHT, AND THAT STARTED WITH A STARTLING REPORT FROM THE “WASHINGTON POST” THAT CAME OUT THE EVENING OF FRIDAY, DECEMBER 9th. A REPORT THAT KIND OF BLEW ALL OTHER NEWS RIGHT OUT OF THE WATER. SO WE HAD A WHOLE SHOW PLANNED TONIGHT THAT HAD HONESTLY NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS TOPIC. BUT THEN THE “WASHINGTON POST” JUST DROPPED THIS ASTONISHING BOMBSHELL. IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THIS YET I’M GOING TO PUT THE HEADLINE ON THE SCREEN SO YOU CAN SEE IT. I’M GOING TO QUOTE THE LEAD DIRECTLY. THE CIA HAS CONCLUDED THAT RUSSIA INTERVENED IN THE 2016 ELECTION TO HELP DONALD TRUMP WIN THE PRESIDENCY. RATHER THAN JUST TO UNDERMINE CONFIDENCE IN THE U.S. ELECTORAL SYSTEM. THEY’RE CITING OFFICIALS BRIEFED ON THE MATTER, QUOTE, INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES HAVE IDENTIFIED INDIVIDUALS WITH CONNECTION TO THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT WHO PROVIDED WIKILEAKS WITH THOUSANDS OF HACKED E-MAILS FROM THE DNC AND OTHERS INCLUDING HILLARY CLINTON’S CAMPAIGN CHAIRMAN. THIS IS STUNNING STUFF. ALL RIGHT. AND THIS HAS JUST BROKEN WITHIN THE LAST HOUR IN THE “WASHINGTON POST.” THEY’RE REPORTING THAT THE CIA NOT ONLY CONCLUDED THAT THE RUSSIANS INTERVENED IN THE ELECTION, STOLE INFORMATION, PUBLICIZED STOLEN INFORMATION TO HELP DONALD TRUMP WIN THE PRESIDENCY, BUT THE CIA GAVE ITS INFORMATION ABOUT RUSSIA TO THE LEADERSHIP IN THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE. AND THE WHTHE WHITE HOUSE WANTE MAKE A BIG PUBLIC BIPARTISAN STAND AGAINST IT AND REPUBLICANS SAID NO. MITCH McCONNELL SPECIFICALLY SAID NO. NO. DON’T TELL THE PUBLIC. AND SO WE HELD THE ELECTION WITH THE LEADERSHIP IN CONGRESS KNOWING FULL WELL WHAT RUSSIA WAS DOING AND WE ALL WENT TO VOTE WHILE THEY SAT ON THAT. UNTIL NOW. UNTIL THE POST PUBLISHED THIS TONIGHT. THAT WAS FRIDAY NIGHT, DECEMBER 9th, 2016. BREAKING NEWS FROM THE “WASHINGTON POST.” THE FIRST OF MANY FRIDAY NIGHTS WHEN I WOULD HAVE TO WORK LATE. BASICALLY SINCE THEN, SINCE DECEMBER 9th WE HAVE BEEN IN KIND OF A SUSTAINED PERIOD OF VERY DISTRACTING, VERY ENGROSSING POLITICAL CRISIS. THIS HAS FELT LIKE A SUSTAINED POLITICAL CRISIS. AS SINCE THEN WE’VE LEARNED MORE AND MORE AND MORE AFTER THE EXTENT OF RUSSIAN INVOLVEMENT THE ELECTION AND THE INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN’S CONTACTS WITH RUSSIA. BUT DURING AND AFTER THE CAMPAIGN. WATCH THE DATE STAMPS ON THESE AS THEY FLY BY. JUST AS WE’RE COMING ON THE AIR WE GOT NEWS THE FORMER CIA DIRECTOR JAMES WOOLSEY TONIGHT HAS ABRUPTLY QUIT THE TRUMP TRANSITION TEAM WITH NO EXPLANATION. TONIGHT AFTER SAYING FOR WEEKS THAT THERE WOULD BE NO SENATE OR HOUSE INVESTIGATION OF THIS MATTER, THE SENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE FINALLY SAID, YEAH, WE’LL LOOK INTO THIS. ALL OF A SUDDEN THIS IS STARTING TO FEEL LIKE THE MOST IMPORTANT POLITICAL STORY CERTAINLY IN THE WORLD. WITH ONE WEEK TO GO BEFORE WE ARE SUPPOSED TO SWEAR IN DONALD TRUMP AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THE “THE NEW YORK TIMES” HAS JUST PUBLISHED A STORY TITLED “INTERCEPTED RUSSIAN COMMUNICATIONS PART OF INQUIRY INTO TRUMP ASSOCIATES.” THIS IS OBVIOUSLY A VERY INFLAMMATORY, VERY HOT STORY. THESE NEW DETAILS COMING OUT THE EVE OF THE INAUGURATION IS A BOMBSHELL. OKAY WE HAVE MAJOR BREAKING NEWS THIS EVENING. WE HAVE JUST BEEN NOTIFIED WITHIN THE LAST MINUTES WHILE WE WERE IN OUR COMMERCIAL BREAK THAT THE ACTING ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED STATES HAS JUST BEEN FIRED. OKAY WE’VE GOT BREAKING NEWS, A NATIONAL SECURITY STORY JUST POST BID THE WASHINGTON POST ABOUT NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER MICHAEL FLYNN AND HIS CONTACTS WITH RUSSIA. WE HAVE BREAKING NEWS TONIGHT THAT GOES TO THE QUESTION NOT JUST OF WHETHER OR NOT THE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER IS ABOUT TO BE FIRED, BUT IT ALSO GOES TO HOW MANY PEOPLE IN THE NEW ADMINISTRATION KNEW THE KIND OF TROUBLE THAT NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER MICHAEL FLYNN WAS IN. HOW MANY PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT THAT AND WHEN THEY KNEW IT. I WANT TO BRING YOU SOME BREAKING NEWS THAT THE “THE NEW YORK TIMES” JUST POSTED. THIS HAS JUST GONE UP SINCE WE WENT ON THE AIR. I’VE BEEN MARKING IT WITH MY TRUSTY HIGHLIGHTER. LET ME TELL YOU WHAT THEY’VE REPORTED DIRECTLY RELEVANT TO WHAT WE NEED TO TALK TO CONGRESSMAN SCHIFF ABOUT. TRUMP CAMPAIGN AIDES HAS REPEATED CONTACTS WITH RUX INTELLIGENCE IS THE HEADLINE. THE OPERATIVE WORD BEING CAMPAIGN. THIS IS DURING THE CAMPAIGN. THIS IS DURING THE ELECTION. THERE’S BRAND-NEW BREAKING NEWS NOW FROM “THE WALL STREET JOURNAL.” CAN WE PUT THIS ARTICLE ON THE SCREEN PLEASE? DID HE MAKE A FULL SCREEN OUT OF THIS? YES. THANK YOU. YOU SEE THE HEADLINE, SPIES GET INTELLIGENCE FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP. THEY’RE NOT SHOWING THIS HIM THAT BECAUSE THEY’RE NOT SURE IF HE CAN BE TRUSTED WITH IT. HE’S THE PRESIDENT. THE WASHINGTON POST BREAKING NEWS JUST THIS EVENING THAT WILL FRANKLY TIE YOUR SOCKS IN A KNOT IF YOU WERE THINKING THAT MAYBE THE WHOLE TRUMP SHERIFF RUSSIA THING WAS GOING TO BE INVESTIGATED IMPARTIALLY AND AGGRESSIVELY BY CONGRESS. THE TWO REPUBLICAN CHAIRMAN OF THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEES IN THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE, THEY HAVE BOTH ADMITTED TO THE “WASHINGTON POST” THAT THEY HAVE BEEN CALLING REPORTERS OFF THE RECORD AT THE REQUEST OF THE WHITE HOUSE TO TELL REPORTERS THAT THERE’S NOTHING TO THESE STORIES. WE INTERRUPT THIS REGULARLY SCHEDULED BROADCAST FOR SOME BREAKING NEWS TONIGHT REGARDING ATTORNEY GENERAL JEFF SESSIONS. WE’VE AGREED THAT JEFF SESSIONS HAS AGREED TO AMEND HIS TESTIMONY. IN HIS TESTIMONY AT HIS CONFIRMATION HEARING AT THE SENATE IN JANUARY, HE FAILED TO DISCLOSE MEETINGS THAT HE HAD WITH THE A RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL WHEN SHE WAS ASKED ABOUT TRUMP CAMPAIGN MEETINGS WITH THE OFFIFICIALS. HE TOLD THE SENATE THAT HE DIDN’T MEET WITH ANY RUSSIANS BUT HE DID. HE WILL NOW CHANGE HIS TESTIMONY. WE’RE FOLLOWING THE BREAKING NEWS TONIGHT THAT THE FIRE NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER RETIRED ATTORNEY GENERAL MICHAEL GLIN WAS FIRED FROM THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AFTER 20 DAYS ON THE JOB. TONIGHT HE’S ASKING FOR IMMUNITY FROM PROSECUTION IN EXCHANGE FOR HIS TESTIMONY IN THE TRUSH-RUSSIA SCANDAL. WE HAVE TO START TONIGHT WITH BREAKING NEWS WHICH HAS JUST BEEN PUBLISHED BY THE WASHINGTON POST. THE WASHINGTON POST REPORTS THAT A FISA FISA WARRANT WAS ISSUED SUMMER TO MONSTER CARTER PAGE’S COMMUNICATIONS. I’M NEVER GOING TO GET ANOTHER FRIDAY NIGHT OFF IN MY LIFE. I’M TELLING YOU. FRIDAY NIGHTS ARE VERY NEWS HEAVY IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION. ACCORDING TO NIGHT’S FRONT PAGE SCOOP IN THE WASHINGTON POST, MIKE FLYNN WAS WARNED EXPLICITLY THAT HIS CONVERSATIONS WITH RUSSIAN OFFICIALS WAS QUOTE UNDOUBTEDLY BEING MONITORED BY THE FBI AND THE NSA. THERE ARE INTERESTING QUESTIONS ABOUT WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE AND PAUL MANAFORT. IS JEFFEFF SESSIONS INVOLVED INY WORK AT THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE CONCERNING PAUL MANAFORT OR IS HE RECUSED. WE CAN REPORT TONIGHT THAT THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT WILL NOT SAY. WE STARTED ASKING YESTERDAY. WE ASKED THROUGHOUT THE DAY TODAY. WE HAVE ASKED IT FIVE TIMES IN FIVE DIFFERENT WAYS INCLUDING ME MAKING THE REQUEST MYSELF PERSONALLY MULTIPLE TIMES IN AS MANY DIFFERENT WAYS AS I COULD THINK OF IT. THEY WILL NOT SAY WHETHER OR NOT HE’S RECUSED. HE HAS RECUSED ON FLYNN THEY SAY. HE IS RECUSED ON THINGS RELAT R TO THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN BROADLY. THEY WON’T SAY ABOUT MANAFORT. SO WE HAVE NEWS TO BREAK TONIGHT. ANOTHER SUBPOENA HAS BEEN ISSUED AS PART OF THE ONGOING INVESTIGATIONS INTO PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ASSOCIATES. AGAIN NBC NEWS REPORTING EXCLUSIVELY THAT FEDERAL INVESTIGATORS SUBPOENAED RECORDS RELATING TO A $3.5 MILLION LOAN TAKEN OUT BY PAUL MANAFORT LAST YEAR. WE’VE GOT MUCH MORE TO COME TONIGHT.

Comments
  1. call me gulible person but i dont see why would someone go through all that effort when you (usa owe them a lot money, that also includes other countries like China and Russia you owe the most out of 19 trillion dollars debt ) they could simply asked to pay up with interest,

  2. Rachel  Can you let us know WHAT it is that Korea, either South or North has that WE WANT?  We have ever cared about Communism. That has been the 'excuse' to invade usually for oil (Vietnam).  What does Korea have?   Anybody else on this thread, feel free to enlighten me.  I can't find the money…

  3. Alt left Fake News is STILL rambling on about a bogus Russian collusion.Meanwhile avoiding actual DNC corruption against Sanders, and collusion of Saudi Arabia to help Clinton. What a joke msnbc and maddow are

  4. TICK..TICK..TICK..TICK..TICK..TICK..TICK..TICK..TICK.. MaddCow's time at MSNBC is almost up. Conspiracy theories tiresome.
    MSNBC = FAKE NEWS.

  5. From the outside, 'liberal' Americans look hilarious, fizzing at the bung, working themselves into a frenzy over a non-event.

  6. Pop Quiz . What do you call a woman named Rachael who body jerks around like she has a nervous disorder and lies quite often? and always assumes the worst.  Rachael MADCOW. AKA. BSE

  7. Happy last year on tv Maddow, YOU ARE SOON TO BE FIRED! The army of YHVH is awakening…….time is up…..HALLELUJAH

  8. It just highlights how impotent the democratic leadership is/was on this matter! If you can not stand up for yourself, no one else will, Democratic Party does not deserve the presidency as long as it keep being so incompetent.

  9. does no one remember Trump saying somthing like 'i hope the russians did hack crooked hillary. maybe they can find those missing emails.' and everyone cheered.

  10. So weird, I thought this was just a lie that the Dems came up with because they just cant stand having lost the election…

  11. It's funny to watch Maddow go completely off the rails with Russia. Can't watch for more than a few minutes without hearing Russia… Russia… Russia. REPUBLITARDs had Benghazi, DEMOCRITs will have Russia.

  12. HOW DO ANYONE KNOW THAT RUSSIANS HELPED TRUMP ?? VERY LIKELY RUSSIANS HELPED DEMOCRATS, OTHERWISE THEY WOULD LOSE MUCH MORE IN THE ELECTION. OBAMA WAS ONE WHO PROMISED MEDVEDEV GOOD FUTURE TO RUSSIA IF DEMOCRATS WIN. DEMOCRATS ARE MUCH MORE CLOSER TO RUSSIA THAN TRUMPS CABINET

  13. The best part of this video is Rachel progressively getting more done with everything related to Russiagate.

  14. Its amazing the bold racism of the leftist white american men on display on national T.V. Not sure how long they will be able to keep this up. How stupid are they? Majority of the world is not white and most certainly not leftist. The big backlash is coming.

  15. I've never watched your program until you began your coverage of interference into the election.. I haven't stopped watching since!

  16. Fake News! Fake poles! Only speculations never fact. Always wrong, Elmo from sesame street has more credibility than Rachel. They don't operate on Principle, only preference n their propaganda.

  17. Everything you've "reported" since your election predictions (a total joke) has been wrong or a big "nothingburger".

  18. the Repubs have intentionally turned a blind eye from the beginning of this tale…..Party over Country🇺🇸

  19. @1:26 "There were hints in the months before the November election that something was off…"

    Yes there was… It was your call of who will win the November election lol :)) like common NBC… months before the election you're also indirectly trying to influence your viewers not to vote for trump

  20. Wouldn't it be a bitter pill for Donnie to swallow if a temporary travel ban were to be imposed on all Russians ?

  21. LOVE Rachel Maddow. A Rhodes Scholar who does intene research to get at the truth. If you don't like what she says, then you CAN"T TAKE THE TRUTH!!!

  22. why do you Americans allow an obvious criminal mafia boss like this trump to buy the presidency of your country??? isn't that awfully stupid and dangerous???

  23. Um, to the comment below – for the wheels of justice to even start, you kind of need a crime first.  And no, accusations are not 'proof' of a crime even when repeated over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over on CNN.  But no shame – this is a common  misunderstanding these days.

  24. Ahhh Yess Rachel MadCow… High Priestess of FAKE NEWS…. Oh yeah, shell have some insight,,,,,,,,,,,NOT!

  25. MSNBC= More Staged News By CIA – – WAKE UP PEOPLE – – Main Stream Media IS LYING TO YOU……….. It's Called Operation Mockingbird and has been place since the 60's……. Racel Maddow is another talking head……….a Max Headroom puppet for the masses spewing deep state lies…….Like the Don Hennley song Dirty Luaundry…..See the Bubbleheaded bleah blonde, she comes on at 5, she can tell you about the plane crash with a gleam in her eye…

  26. Raymond Meadow you are so obsessed with the word Russia in my opinion you should go to Russia marry a Russian and maybe he can make you back into Rachel again

  27. Is there anything positive that you have to say about Trump? What is News Reporting in Comparison with Propagandist Dissemination? We all know that the Collusion wasHillary and Russia and selling 20% of our Uranium, guess that is not collusion?

  28. There is zero proof.this bitxh is running a slander campaign and should ne sue by trump for defamation of character

  29. Unbelievable. I can't believe that the MSM have spent two years peddling a conspiracy theory. The collusion story is complete BS. I'm genuinely shocked that they can get away with this stuff. First, Smollett. Now this. And they're allowed to continue destroying this country unchecked. Incredible.

  30. ffs where is the one of her crying because of no collusion i wanna see it i need a good laugh did they scrub it?
    can we get her deplatformed please, alex jones gives more 'real' information than this

  31. "This is your life [huge grin on face], America. This is what you're life has been like since December. Do you wonder why you've been so stressed out over the past few months? Have you been following this news? [laughter] It has been a long but gratifying seven months for journalism. Particularly the nonstop breaking news from our excellent world class, excellent newspapers, like the Washington Post, and like the New York Times. We have covered a lot of ground over the last seven months on this show, bringing these breaking news updates every night. These stories have just broken night, after night, after night, after night. Over the rest of this hour, tonight, we won't just look at where we've been over this remarkable seven month span in American history, we'll tell you what to look out for as the investigations into this administration continue. So, happy Independence Day. Stay with us tonight [huge grin on face], this is going to be fun. " -Rachel Maddow. ;

  32. wipe that smirk off your face as that crap that's been coming out if your sewer mouth is all fake! no collusion yet you left winged muppets insist on using the media like the clown doing this reporting to brain wash the common folk. absolutely disgusting, should be made to publicly apologise.

  33. Oh my my Rachel, you are a proven hack, since the release of the report. You've been proven absolutely wrong. I suggest you dye your hair purple and take up soccer with Meghan. How do ya like your ratings now? Trump 2020

  34. Ahhh the good ol' days….Remember when your bullsh!t raked in the ratings…where have your followers gone? lol
