  1. If the ALLEGATIONS in this indictment were true, Mueller would not have found "no collusion", Madcow, If you were a real journalist, RM, you would be championing Assange, who IS a REAL journalist, instead of attempting to smear him. All indicators are that the Clinton emails came from an insider leak, not hacking. We see through your political bias RM and it is unseemly.

  2. TRUTH wins every time bc no one ever really gets away w anything. Think temporal (now), then eternal . When these crooks close their eyes for the last time in this temporal world, they will be horrified to discover themselves immediately being judged out of books and found condemned. They have already secured their place in the LAKE OF FIRE and dont even know it.. Rev 20:11-15. Bye.

  3. Trump isn't going to to say one way or another what he is planning on doing with Assange. The best thing for Trump would be to offer Assange a pardon in exchange for what he knows.

  4. What if we left the British to "question" (so to speak) Assange about all this, then take their deposition of Assange's answers [and somehow or other it gets published in the NYT, {Oh Drat!, how did that happen?} and that way we don't have to bother extraditing him here. Let the British charge and imprison him and we get the dirt on the Trump Campaign getting the dirt on the Clinton campaign. Sound like a plan?

  5. I didn't see it in this excerpt but the reason US Justice Dept. would have to move quickly if it wants to add those additional charges is because they can not add charges after filing for extradition from Great Britain to the USA. Of course Julian may spend some time in prison there so they may have additional time before sending that request.

  6. Wiki leaked emails showed how often CNN was told exactly what to say by Hillary and the Democrats. Rachel conspiracies are going to drive her insane…

  7. Clinton was/ is dangerous. Even if the Russians were trying to hurt Clinton, that does not indict Trump with Collusion. Hillary collided with them and sold them uranium. How about that? The crook.

  8. So, they are reporting REAL material. You are the one who should be charged. Yours , Rachel Maddow, is FAKE News!!

  9. Rachel Maddow is a lying traitor to America firmly in the Soros/Rothschilds camp. One day she will receive her reward for treason. God bless Julian Assange, whose journalistic credentials compared to hers are like a march for truth against the sway of a prostitute.

  10. I don't need the Mueller report or the Barr summary look how he said wiki leaks over 100 times this dude is a liar and I don't know why people consistently take up for him it's wright in front of your face …it must be race thing I guess

  11. Kind of damaging the "if your father doesn't win, don't concede" Trump was crying voter fraud even before the 2016 election.

  12. https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/international-news/rule-of-law/usa-wants-britain-to-hand-over-assange-on-pretended-computer-hacking-will-keep-manning-in-prison-until-she-agrees-to-testify-against-him/

  13. screw Trump and all that are around him. liar, cheat,. what are you people think???? He is saving you????? America is the most hated country in the world. you should look at Nederlands , how people prosper in that country!!!! what is Trump doing ? ??? making you hate one another . talking bad about emigrants ! !???? we are one, and should be helping . talking , criminals ! !!!! he is the criminal ! !!! I am so sick and tired of his crab !!!!! news !!!!!!!!! tell me the truth ! !!! stop going around and around in circles ! !!! people aren't stupid ! !!!

  14. like I always said ! !!!! all of this crab is setup . Trump , from the beginning protected himself . used others to blame and it worked . In the meantime , he goes on and on. all of this nonsense ! !! I am definitely not interested in the stupid news . you not telling me anything that I already know. do something positive for the people!!!! because frankly I am sick and tired of Trump.

  15. Crips and Bloods, Blue and Red. Always fighting. Demoncrats and Republicans, Blue and Red. Always fighting🤔

  16. RACH YOU NEED TO DO YOUR JOB WIKILEAKS DID NOT GET INFO FROM RUSSIA HER SAY FAKE NEWS AGAIN MORE LIES ASSANGE COMING TO TESTIFY DONT BELEIVE A WORD FROM THIS FAKE NEWS TOTALLY NOT TRUE TRUMS PLAYING THEIR GAMES LMAO RACH WERENT YOU CRYING THE OTHER DAY R U READY TO START AGAIN NEXT TIME YOU GET YOUR INDICTMENT YOU R NOT UNTOUCHABLE

  17. So is this yet another way for the Democrats to attack President Trump? I do not trust the Democrats anymore period.

  18. BINGO! Trumpturds need to be reminded if any of his team engaged in criminal behavior, that automatically makes Trumpster co-conspirator as head of Team Trumpster!

  19. Assange"s arrest has nothing to do with any indictments issued by Mueller.His arrest is in connection to Chelsea Manning releasing military documents to WikiLeaks in 2010.

  20. Umm what we learned, what wikileaks revealed was that the Clinton campaign rigged the Dem primaries by pushing out Bernie.

  21. Julian Assange is a journalist who has been doing the best work this nation has ever seen. Don't support the fascist march toward complete true journalism suppression. Don't blame WikiLeaks for doing what all journalists have done in other efforts. If establishment media wants to ignore the information provided by WikiLeaks, they cannot complain about who wants to pick it up and use it. The DNC did far more than the Russians in making sure that Bernie Sanders' supporters would never ever ever vote for Clinton.

  22. MADDOW had to have help to stop her from committing electoral suicide over the loss of her "heroine" Hillary, I break glass ceilings-
    the entire press was actually responsible for her loss as they provided erroneous data

  23. Yes all about the Criminal acts of a Criminally bent Corporation ( Calling itself a government) which it has not been since 1873

  24. THE WIKILEAKS DID NOT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE PEOPLE VOTING FOR TRUMP . HILLARY LOST BECAUSESHE WAS EVIL, VILE ,IMMORAL AND CORRUPTED . HILLARY DESTROYED HERSELF BY SHOWING HER TRUE COLORS BY SPREADING HER OWN WEB OF LIES AGAINS THE TRUE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND OUR CONSTITUTION . IF HILLARY EVER WON AMERICA WOULD HAVE BEEN DESTROYED AND THE DEMOCRAT PARTY ARE STILL LYING TO THEM SELVES LIKE THE REST OF YOU. RACHEL MADDOW IT IS TIME TO START TELLING THE TRUTH AND STOP WITH THE WEB OF LIES . IT IS YOUR WORDS OF POISON SPREADING OVER YOUR FANGS LIKE A BLACK WIDOW OUR TEARING AWAY AT TRUMP AND AMERICA APART . I CAN NOT WAIT FOR THE DAY THAT ALL OF YOU ARE PICKED UP AND PUT BEHIND BARS FOR BETRAYING OUR PRESIDENT . THIS IS CALLED HIGH TREASON AND COMMITTING WAR TOWARDS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IS GETTING OLD . IT IS TIME FOR MSNBC TO COLLAPES TAKE A NOISE DIVE FOR LYING ABOUT EVERYONE . TRUMP NEW THAT THE DEMOCRATS WOULD MAKE MORE OUT OF IT AND WHAT THEY ARE PULLING IS CRIMINAL . FOR THEY DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHTS THEY ARE TRYING TO DO . IT IS TIME TO GO AFTER CONGRESS AND TAKE THEM ALL DOWN FOR COMMITING TREASON AGAINST TRUMP OVER A LIE THEY STARTED AND MSNBC IS ALSO COMMITING CRIMINAL ACTION BY KEEPING THE LIES GOING .

  25. Lying journalists are starting to make the indictments list. American citizens are sick and tired of MSM lies and demand the arrest and prosecution of these treasonous reporters. You can't win this. Patriots are in control. WWG1WGA

  26. people on here still clinging to collusion make me lose hope in my country.. it also makes me laugh at the same time XD

  27. So because the Democrats refused to allow intelligence to stop them from being hacked the Russians were allowed to influence our elections in favor of Bernie.
    So how is President Trump responsible for that ?
    You don’t bother mentioning the fact that the Republicans information was protected as it should be and they couldn’t get in.

  28. This is not news. It’s 100% propaganda. Blatant military industrial complex talking points it’s scary. I hope people are spending time understanding how this is purely an attack on freedom of the press. Really? Blaming the Russians again? Let’s acknowledge people don’t really care but just want to have cable news personality feed them a fantasy script on a platter for their amusement.

  29. No justice, no freedom, there is nothing with the clown in office. A very sad period in time we now live.

  30. Lo and behold! Surprise! Suspense! Who could have predicted that crony enabled, inherited, vain Draco Malfoy with no scruples, taste, manners, serial cheater run all his life on a leash wiyld turn out to be a stooge? Rand Paul ran too, American People.

  31. What spotlight? The scumocrats haven't done a single thing for the American people in two years with their obsession of destroying Trump, simply because he denied them of that despicable, rotten corrupt pig…

  32. No matter how it was obtained, the dirt was there to be dug up. Ultimately Hillary, the DNC, the mainstream media and the rigging are why Sanders' supporters were never going to support her. We were never going to support her before the release because we saw how Sanders was being treated and how Clinton was being crammed down our throats. Yet here you all are doing it again with Biden for 2020. I have no desire for another round of Trump but it sure seems like you guys do.

  33. I think Chuck Rosenberg is one of the most intelligent, articulate and charming gentlemen I have ever watched. I always understand what he is saying and he never goes into some of the drama others do. Just the fact!

  34. Fake news, fake news fake news, fake news are you sleeping alright?? Panicking yet?? You should be. You see we know! ThankQ 🇺🇸🇮🇱🙏⭐️⭐️⭐️ #WWG1WGA

  36. ALL SO-CALLED WHITE PEOPLE ARE BACKING TRUMP & WILLIAM BARR IN WHAT THEY ARE DOING TO THIS COUNTRY, AND YOU KNOW IT, THAT'S WHY YOU COME UP WITH STUPID QUESTIONS LIKE "WHY DON'T THEY IMPEACH HIM ALREADY", BUT CONSTANTLY SAYING MUELLER SAID THERE WAS NO RUSSIAN COLLUSION !! THIS WILL GO DOWN IN HISTORY OF HOW "STUPID YOU PEOPLE ARE ABOUT A SICK-ASSED
    RACIST WHITE MAN AND HIS MINIONS !!

  37. Assange is adamant the Clinton emails did not come from Russia.
    I’d believe Assange before I’d believe anything from the Clinton camp.

  38. How can he be AG be legally appointed to act on behalf of the “PEOPLE” get away with forgetting JohnQ Public and end up working for a corrupt president that is not shy about breaking the law? Surely, there must be a law..even if it is a ancient…that can get this rogue president ***GONE***!

  39. Trumpturd is a traitor AND sellout… Unbelievable that the GOP has protected this inept, arrogant and a pathetically ignorant president! UNBELIEVABLE.

  40. Trump's the ringleader. He knew Everything that was going on. Remember Russia if your listening find the 30,000 e-mails the Press will award you. It seems like to me Kushner has already awarded the RUSSIANS thru Deutsche Bank. Employees from the bank REDFLAGGED Kushners Account.

  41. Our judicial system is not working. Trump has all his ducks in arrow, and it is costing our country it's basic fundamental workings. The world is laughing at us, Russia is further showing the world that democracy is a hack and will effect our view in this world permanently. God help us! We ask for his help, but we already kicked him out of our country. ( no prayer, no Christmas, no Easter etc, etc…..}

  42. The well known ease with which "geeks" are able to "hack" into computer programs and files makes it crystal clear: the US MUST return to paper ballots and supervised counts if US elections are to have ANY integrity or validity.

  43. America is on the verge of flipping from a democratic republic to a strongman or autocratic form of government, something that’s happened to dozens of democracies in the past few decades, but never before here. It’s possible we won’t recover from it.
    Trump is openly defying the norms and laws of our republic, while calling for the imprisonment of both his political enemies and members of the very law enforcement agencies that might hold him to account.

    These are the symptoms of a republic in crisis propagated by Trump:
    *Calling the press “the enemy of the people.”
    *Refusing to interact with Congress as the Constitution dictates.
    *Packing the courts with demonstrably unqualified ideologues.
    *Lying to the people on a daily basis.
    *Embracing autocrats while trashing traditional allies.
    *Breaking the law and saying that the president can’t be prosecuted, while he runs out the clock on the statute of limitations.
    *Bragging that he’s making money on the presidency and daring anybody to stop him.
    *Putting lobbyists in charge of public lands, our banking system, and our environment.
    *Embracing violent and hateful people and movements, both at home and abroad.

    There’s a lot of hand-wringing going on in the press and in D.C. about Trump’s political and legal excesses. What everybody seems to be missing is the permanent damage he’s doing to our republic by finding the loose floorboards under our republic, the loopholes and norms of political behavior that have been enforced for centuries out of good will and respect, rather than fear of the law.

    Like a petulant child or a juvenile delinquent, he delights in breaking them right in front of us. From Thom Hartmann "This is how Republics die".

  44. NOT Trump 2020!
    THINK THINK THINK, Democrats.
    We can't get people to NOT VOTE for TRUMP by dwelling on all of his lies.
    I want Trump out before he destroys our country. It is not admirable to persist in trying to keep promises that were made in campaigns when those promises were and always will be stupid!
    Don't tell me, "Trump is only doing what you voted for him to do". I DIDN'T VOTE FOR TRUMP. Even those who did VOTE for Trump do not feel they gave him a mandate for everything.

  45. Nice timing; the Jeffrey E scandal, "Send her home", Stormy, Barr's contempt…and Wikileaks. Among others. 🖒😎

  46. There was no evidence for this finding and Mueller is now subject to a federal court order not to repeat this as if it were proven. Nothing ties GRU to the commercial troll farm and ditto the Kremlin and Wikileaks. See Concorde case,

  47. Rachel, Hope you can Check as Reported in the 70's that Chancellor Schmidt in the 70's Personal Secretary was a KGB Implant SPY.
