British Intel Spotted Donald Trump Camp Russia Ties | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


WE HAVE KNOWS STORIES AND MORE
COMING UP TONIGHT. WE’RE GOING TO START WITH
BRITISH SPY STUFF. IF YOU ARE INTO BRITISH SPY
STUFF, EVEN SPY NOVELS AND BBC CEREALS AND THAT KIND OF STUFF,
YOU WILL KNOW THERE IS A CONVENIENT KNEW MONIC DEVICE FOR
US AMERICANS ABOUT BRITISH SPY STUFF, A CONVENIENT DEVICE TO
HELP US REMEMBER WHAT THE DIFFERENT BRITISH SPY AGENCIES
ARE. THEY HAVE ONE DOMESTIC
INTELLIGENCE AGENCY THAT’S MI 5. THAT’S THE ROUGH EQUIVALENT OF
FBI. THEY HAVE MI6 WHICH IS THE QUILT
OF OUR CIA. AND THERE’S THIS HANDY KNEW
MONOIC DEVICE WHICH IS MI 5 IS THE FBI.
AND MI6 IS THE CIA. IT’S VERY HANDY.
THAT SAID, IT ALL FALLS APART WHEN YOU GET TO THE THIRD AGENCY
WHICH IS CALLED GCHQ, BECAUSE THAT DOES NOT SOUND LIKE
ANYTHING. THERE’S NO NEAT, EASY TO
REMEMBER DEVICE TO REMIND US ALL THAT THE BRITISH INTELLIGENCE
AGENCY CALLED GCHQ IS THE EQUIVALENT OF OUR NSA.
THERE’S NO EASY WAY TO REMEMBER. THAT’S THEIR HEADQUARTERS.
THE SHAPE REMINDS YOU IT’S A GLOBAL VACUUM FOR INFORMATION.
GCHQ STANDS FOR GOVERNMENT COMMUNICATION HEADQUARTERS.
THAT’S A DELIBERATELY OBSCURE NAME THAT’S NOT SUPPOSED TO
ATTRACT ATTENTION. THEY STARTED FAIRLY SMALL, AS A
CRYPTOGRAPHY OUTFIT IN BRITAIN. IN WORLD WAR II IT BECAME VERY,
VERY IMPORTANT. IN WORLD WAR II, THE NAZIS USED
A MACHINE CALLED ENIGMA TO ENCRYPT THEIR SENSITIVE
COMMUNICATIONS. IT WAS WIDELY THOUGHT TO BE
UNBREAKABLE. IN FACT IT WAS IMPORTANT THAT
THE GERMANS BELIEVED ENIGMA WAS UNBREAKABLE.
IT WAS INPENETRABLE AS A CODING DEVICE.
THE NAZIS SENT THEIR COMMUNICATIONS USING THESE
ENIGMA MACHINES. ONE OF THE GREAT BRITISH
INTELLIGENCE SECRETS OF WORLD WAR II IS THAT SECRETLY DURING
THE WAR THE GCHQ HAD HACKED, HAD CRACKED THE ENIGMA.
JAERMDS HAD NO IDEA, BUT THE BRITS WERE ABLE TO READ THE
GERMANS’S MOST SECRET COMMUNICATIONS, AND THAT’S WHY
PART OF WORLD WAR II ENDED THE WAY IT DID.
THAT PART OF BRITISH INTELLIGENCE APPARATUS
RESPONSIBLE FOR CRACKED ENIGMA, THE GENIUSES WHO CRACKED THE
NAZI CODE, THAT AGENCY IS NOW GCHQ.
NOW THEY ARE MUCH MORE HIGH PROFILE AND GIGANTIC.
THEY HAVE THOUSANDS OF EMPLOYEES, BUT BIG PART OF WHAT
AS THEY DO DEAL WITH ENENCRYPTION AND CRYPTOGRAPHY AT
A HIGH LEVEL. WHAT THEY DO OVERALL AS AN
AGENCY IS CALLED SIGNALS INTELLIGENCE.
THEY VACUUM UP SURVEILLANCE DATA FROM ALL OVER THE GLOBE JUST AS
OUR NSA DOES. AT THE BEGINNING OF MARCH,
“THE NEW YORK TIMES” REPORTED THE BRITISH AND DUTCH
GOVERNMENTS TURNED OVER TO THE U.S. DURING OUR PLGT CAMPAIGN
LAST YEAR. THEY TURNED OVER EVIDENCE THAT
PEOPLE ASSOCIATED WITH DONALD TRUMP, WITH THE DONALD TRUMP FOR
PRESIDENT CAMPAIGN HAD ATTENDED, QUOTE, MEETINGS IN EUROPEAN
CITIES WITH VLADIMIR PUTIN. “THE NEW YORK TIMES” REPORTED
THAT MAR 1st. PROVOCATIVE STATEMENT.
THEY ATTRIBUTED THIS INFORMATION TO THREE FORMER AMERICAN
OFFICIALS WHO ASKED ANONANYMORETY IN DISCUSSING
CLASSIFIED INTELLIGENCE. BUT THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN
INTERESTING DANGLING THREAD IN THIS SCANDAL AND IN THIS
INVESTIGATION. NOT JUST THE IDEA THAT TRUMP
CAMPAIGN PEOPLE PHYSICALLY MET WITH VLADIMIR PUTIN’S ASSOCIATES
IN INPERSON MEETINGS. THE OTHER PART OF THIS THAT WAS
INTRIGUING FROM THE “NEW YORK TIMES” REPORT BACK IN
EARLY MARCH WAS WHERE THEY SAY THAT INFORMATION WENT.
THEY SAID THAT NOT ONLY DID THESE MEETINGS HAPPEN IN
EUROPEAN CITIES BUT EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES CAUGHT
THEM, SAW THEM DOING IT, SURVEILLED THE MEETINGS
BASICALLY AND REPORTED THAT SURVEILLANCE DATA TO THE UNITED
STATES. WELL, THAT PIECE OF IT AS OF
TODAY WE’VE NOW GOT MORE ON BECAUSE THIS MORNING A NEW SCOP
FROM THE GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER IN BRITAIN ADVANCES THIS STORY.
NOW, THE GUARDIAN IS NOT REPORTING ON THESE ALLEGED
MEETINGS BUT THEY ARE REPORTING A LOT MORE ABOUT EUROPEAN
AGENCIES CAPTION THESE ALLEGED COMMUNICATIONS AND CONTACTS
BETWEEN TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND RUSSIAN INDIVIDUALS, DOCUMENTING
THOSE CONTACTS, AND GIVING THAT DOCUMENTATION OVER TO THE UNITED
STATES. THE GUARDIAN REPORTS THAT AS FAR
BACK AT 2015 GCHQ PICKED UP SIGNALS INTELLIGENCE OF, QUOTE,
MEMBERS OF DONALD TRUMP’S CAMPAIGN TEAM HAVING CONTACT
WITH RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE OPERATIVES.
ACCORDING TO THIS GUARDIAN REPORT TODAY, BRITAIN WAS FIRST
ON THIS. BRITAIN SURVEILLANCE AGENCY WAS
FIRST, BUT THEN LOTS OF OTHER EUROPEAN SPY AGENCIES REPORTS
THE SAME THING THEREAFTER. THEY FIRST BECAME AWARE IN 2015
OF SUSPICIOUS INTERACTIONS BETWEEN FIGURES CONNECTED TO
TRUMP AND KNOWN OR SUPPORTED RUSSIAN AGENTS.
THIS INTELLIGENCE WAS PASSED TO THE U.S. AS PART OF A ROUTINE
EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION. OVER THE NEXT SIX MONTHS UNTIL
DECEMBER OF 2016, A NUMBER OF WESTERN AGENCIES SHARED FURTHER
INFORMATION ON CONTACTS BETWEEN TRUMP’S INNER CIRCLE AND
RUSSIANS. THE EUROPEAN COUNTRIES THAT
PASSED ON ELECTRONIC INFORMATION WAS GERMAN, POLAND, AUSTRALIA.
IT IS UNDERSTOOD THAT GCHQ WAS AT NO POINT CARRYING OUT AN
OPERATION AGAINST HIS TEAM OR PROACTIVELY SEEKING INFORMATION.
THE INFORMATION WAS PICKED UP BY CHANCE.
OVER SEVERAL MONTHS, DIFFERENT AGENCIES TARGETING THE SAME
PEOPLE, PRESUMABLY TARGETING THE SAME RUSSIANS, THEY BEGAN TO SEE
A PATTERN OF CONNECTIONS THAT WERE FLAGGED TO INTELLIGENCE
OFFICIALS IN THE UNITED STATES. THIS IS A BRITISH PAPER WITH
THIS SCOOP TODAY. THIS IS THE GUARDIAN NEWSPAPER.
THEY DEFINITELY HAVE A BRITISH PERSPECTIVE ON THIS, OR AT LEAST
THIS STORY COMES FROM A BRITISH PLACE.
BY THAT I MEAN IF YOU READ BETWEEN THE LINES, IT SEEMS LIKE
PART OF THE MOTIVATION OF THEIR INTELLIGENCE SOURCES WHO ARE
TELLING ON THIS NEW INFORMATION IS THAT THEY SORT OF WANT TO
BRAG ABOUT THE FACT THAT THE BRITISH AND THESE OTHER
INTELLIGENCE SERVICES OVERSEAS, THEY WERE FIRST TO PICK UP ON
THESE DODGY CONTACTS BETWEEN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND THE RUSSIANS.
THEY’RE SORT OF BRAGGING ABOUT THE FACT THAT THEY WERE ON IT.
BUT THEY ARE ALSO COMPLAINING ABOUT HOW SLOW AMERICA WAS TO
PICK UP ON THIS STUFF COMPARED TO EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD.
AFTER ALL, THIS IS INTELLIGENCE THAT WOULD BE OF MOST IMPORTANCE
TO THE UNITED STATES. WHY WERE AMERICAN INTELLIGENCE
AGENCIES NOT FIRST TO PICK IT UP?
AND ONCE IT WAS PICKED UP BY THESE OTHER FRIENDLY
INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES, WHY DID AMERICA NOT ACT ON IT WITH MORE
ALACRITY? ONE SOURCE SPEAKING WITH THE
GUARANTEED SAID IT LOOKS LIKE THE U.S. INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES
WERE ASLEEP. THE EUROPE AGENCIES WERE SAYING
THERE ARE CONTACTS GOING ON BETWEEN PEOPLE CLOSE TO
MR. TRUMP AND PEOPLE WE BELIEVE ARE RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE AGENTS,
YOU SHOULD BE WEARY OF THIS. THE MESSAGE WAS, WATCH OUT,
THERE’S SOMETHING NOT RIGHT HERE.
WHO KNOWS IF IT’S THESE OTHER AGENCIES POUNGSD THEIR CHEST
ABOUT HOW GREAT THEY ARE. OR HINDSIGHT IS 20/20.
MAYBE IT WAS TRULY WEIRD THAT AMERICAN AGENCIES WEREN’T MORE
JOHNNY ON THE SPOT ABOUT THIS INFORMATION.
IT’S HARD FOR US LAY OBSERVERS OF THIS STUFF TO TELL FROM HERE.
BUT THIS IS NEW INFORMATION IN TERMS OF OTHER INTELLIGENCE
AGENCIES HAVING A HANDLE ON THIS STUFF.
AND THERE’S ONE MORE PIECE OF THIS REPORT THAT MAKES ANOTHER
PIECE OF THIS STORY FINALLY MAKE SENSE.
LAST WEEK, LAST THURSDAY ON THE NIGHT THE NEW ADMINISTRATION
DECIDED TO SHOOT THOSE TOMAHAWK MISSILES ON THE SYRIAN AIR BASE,
THAT EVENING “THE NEW YORK TIMES” REPORTED
LATE THAT IT WAS NOT JUST THE FBI THAT WAS LOOKING INTO THE
RUSSIAN ATTACK ON OUR ELECTION LAST YEAR AND THE QUESTION OF
WHETHER OR NOT THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN WAS INVOLVED IN THAT
ATTACK, “THE NEW YORK TIMES” REPORTED JOHN BRENNAN DID
INDIVIDUAL ONE-ON-ONE BRIEFINGS. HE PERSONALLY DID THEM AS
DIRECTOR OF THE CIA WITH THE TOP LEADERSHIP IN CONGRESS WITH THE
HEADS OF BOTH PARTIES IN CONGRESS.
JOHN BRENNAN BRIEFED THESE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS LATE LAST
SUMMER, A, THAT RUSSIA WAS INTERFERING IN THE SKPLAEKZ THEY
PAPD TO BE INTERFERING TO HELP TRUMP WIN, AND C, THAT THE CIA
WAS, QUOTE, SEEING SIGNS OF POSSIBLE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN THE
RUSSIAN ATTACK IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN.
SO THAT WAS REPORTED LAST WEEK. HEY, THIS WASN’T JUST THE FBI.
THE CIA WAS SOUNDING THE ALARM FOR SOME REASON LATE LAST
SUMMER. THE DIRECTOR OF THE CIA WAS
SOUNDING THE ALARM. THAT WAS FLOATING OUT THERE UNAT
THE TIMEERED LAST WEEK FROM THE “NEW YORK TIMES” AND ALMOST
NOBODY FOLD IT UP BECAUSE IT WAS SWAMPED BY ALL THE OTHER NEWS.
ACCORDING TO THE GUARDIAN TODAY, WE NOW HAVE AT LEAST THEIR
REPORTING WHICH SUGGESTS WHAT MIGHT HAVE FREAKED OUT JOHN
BRENNAN ENOUGH TO DO THOSE ONE-ON-ONE, INPERSON BRIEFINGS.
THEIR HEAD ROBERT HANNIGAN PASSED MATERIAL IN THE SUMMER OF
2016 JOHN WREN IN AN. THE MATTER WAS DEEMED SO
SENSITIVE. IT WAS HANDLED AT THE DIRECTOR
LEVEL, MEANING THIS INFORMATION WAS HANDED FROM THEIR DIRECTOR
OF THEIR NSA TO THE DIRECTOR OF OUR CIA.
IT WASN’T LIKE AGENCY TO AGENCY OR STAFF OF ASSISTANCE.
IT WAS HEAD OF THE AGENCY TO HEAD OF THE AGENCY HANDING OFF
THIS INFORMATION. ACCORDING TO
“THE NEW YORK TIMES,” OUR TOP GUY AT THE CIA THEN PERSONALLY
WENT RIGHT TO THE OVERSIGHT COMMITTEES AND RIGHT TO THE TOP
LEADERSHIP IN CONGRESS WITH IT, HIMSELF, ALONE.
DID HE TAKE THOSE ACTIONS? DID HE MOUNT THOSE ONE-ON-ONE IN
PERSON BRIEFINGS BECAUSE OF WHAT THE BRITISH INTELLIGENCE
SERVICES AND THESE OTHER INTELLIGENCE SERVICES HAD
COLLECTED? IS WHAT ALARMED HIM ENOUGH TO DO
THOSE MEETINGS WITH THE EUROPEAN AGENCIES AND WESTERN AGENCIES
COLLECTED IN TERMS OF SUR VEILING TRUMP PEOPLE TALKING
WITH RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE OPERATIVES?
IS THAT HOW HE LEARNED THAT WAS GOING ON?
DID THE CIA DIRECTOR BELIEVE AS REPORTED IN THE “NEW YORK TIMES”
THAT WHAT HE HAD WAS EVIDENCE NOT JUST THAT THE RUSSIANS WERE
ATTACKING OUR ELECTION BUT THAT TRUMP CAMPAIGN WAS HELPING WITH
THE RUSSIAN ATTACK SOMEHOW? THIS WOULD BE AN EXCELLENT TIME
TO HEAR JOHN BRENNAN ANSWER QUESTIONS LIKE THAT, ESPECIALLY
BECAUSE I’M NOT BASING THIS ON ANY CLASSIFIED INFORMATION.
ALL I HAVE ACCESS TO IS OPEN SOURCE INFORMATION.
AND ALL OF THIS STUFF HAS NOW BEEN REPORTED IN NEWSPAPERS, AND
HE CAN NOW BE ASKED ABOUT IT IN A NONCLASSIFIED CONTEXT BASED ON
THIS OPEN SOURCE REPORTING WE CAN ALL READ.
HE CAN ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS FOR US.
IF HE WERE ASKED ABOUT IT IN A PUCK HEARING WHICH HAS SOMETHING
TO DO WITH THE FACT THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE CANCELED
THE PUBLIC HEARING. THIS AFTERNOON CNN ADDED THEIR
OWN CORROBORATION TO THIS STORY CITING U.S. CONGRESSIONAL AND
LAW ENFORCEMENT AND U.S. AND EUROPEAN INTELLIGENCE SOURCES.
THAT’S HOW THEY PHRASED THEIR SOURCING.
THEIR REPORT AS OF THIS AFTERNOON IS THAT THE CCHQ
INCEPTED COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN DONALD TRUMP AND RUSSIAN
OFFICIALS AND RUSSIAN INDIVIDUALS DURING THE CAMPAIGN
AND PASSED ON THOSE COMMUNICATIONS TO THEIR U.S.
COUNTERPARTS. SO THEY ARE CORROBORATING THE
GUARDIAN’S REPORTING THAT THEY COLLECTED DOCUMENTATION,
COLLECTED INFORMATION ON THOSE MEETINGS PASSED THEM ONTO THE
U.S. IN TERMS OF THE SCOPE OF WHAT
WE’RE TALKING ABOUT HERE, CNN DESCRIBES, QUOTE, MULTIPLE
COMMUNICATIONS OVER SEVERAL MONTHS BETWEEN THE TRUMP
ASSOCIATES AND RUSSIAN INDIVIDUALS.
AND OF COURSE THAT WAS DURING THE CAMPAIGN WHILE RUSSIA WAS
MOUNTING ITS OPERATION TO HACK DOCUMENTS AND RUN THEIR FOREIGN
INTELLIGENCE OPERATION TO HELP TRUMP WIN THE ELECTION.
IN TERMS OF HOW THESE INVESTIGATIONS ARE PROCEEDING,
IF IT FEELS LIKE NEW STUFF IS COMING OUT EVERY DAY NOW, IT’S
BECAUSE NEW STUFF IS COMING OUT EVERY DAY NOW.
OBVIOUSLY THERE’S A LOT OF INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM GOING
ON HERE AND ABROAD ON THIS SUBJECT.
CLEARLY THERE’S AN ACTIVE FBI INQUIRY OR TWO OR THREE, OR FIVE
OR SEVEN. THERE IS THE STALLED HOUSE
INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE INVESTIGATION THAT HASN’T
RESCHEDULED THAT PUBLIC HEARING WITH JOHN BRENNAN.
THERE’S ALSO WHAT APPEARS TO BE AN ACTIVE SENATE INTELLIGENCE
COMMITTEE INVESTIGATION THEY’RE REPORTEDLY CONDUCTING WITNESS
INTERVIEWS WITH ANALYSTS THAT PRODUCED THAT REPORT THAT SAID
THAT RUSSIA ATTACKED OUR ELECTION WITH THE A LOT OF
PEOPLE TRUMP WINNING THE ELECTION.
THEY’RE REPORTEDLY INTERVIEWING THOSE INTELLIGENCE AGENTS NOW.
WITH WE DON’T KNOW WHAT’S HAPPENING IN THE CLOSED DOOR
PARTS, BUT WE ARE IN OPEN SOURCE MATERIAL SEEING EVIDENCE OF SOME
STUFF GOING ON. AS WE REPORTED LAST NIGHT, THE
FORMER CAMPAIGN CHAIRMAN, PAUL MANAFORT, HE SAYS HE’S NOW RETRO
ACTIVELY REGISTERING AS A FOREIGN PORN AFTER CONVERSATIONS
WITH FEDERAL AUTHORITIES ABOUT HIS WORK WITH PRO-PUTIN FORCES
IN UKRAINE. WHATEVER YOU THINK ABOUT HIS
WORK WITH FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS AND WHETHER OR NOT HE SHOULDN’T
BE REGISTERED AS A FOREIGN AGENT NOW OR IN THE PAST, THIS
STATEMENT FROM HIM THAT AFTER CONVERSATIONS WITH FOREIGN
AUTHORITIES HE HAS DECIDED TO MAKE THIS REGISTRATION THIS
STATEMENT IS DIRECT EVIDENCE THAT THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN CHAIR IS
NOW HAVING SERIOUS CONVERSATIONS WITH FEDERAL AUTHORITIES ABOUT
HIS CONTACTS WITH FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS AND HIS WORK ON
THEIR BEHALF AND THE LEGAL REQUIREMENTS THAT DEINVOLVE
THERE FROM. FROM THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN JUST
BEING AN OBSERVER, JUST BEING A CITIZEN TRYING TO FIGURE THIS
OUT, THIS IMPORTANT QUESTION, TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF THIS
PRESIDENT IS IN PLACE BECAUSE OF THE NORMAL DOMESTIC COURSE OF
POLITICAL EVENTS OR RATHER BECAUSE OF A FOREIGN
INTELLIGENCE OPERATION HE COOPERATED WITH.
KEEPING TRACK OF THIS BASIC IMPORTANT QUESTION, TRYING TO
TRACK, NOTICE, UNDERSTAND ALL THE DIFFERENT SHOES THAT KEEP
DROPPING EVERY DAY, IT’S HARD TO KNOW RIGHT NOW THE STATUS OF ANY
ONE OF THESE INVESTIGATIONS. IT’S HARD TO PREDICT THE TIME
FRAME THAT WE’LL GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS AS TO WHAT
HAPPENED HERE TO OUR COUNTRY. BUT IT SEEMS CLEAR RIGHT NOW
THERE’S SOMETHING DIFFERENT GOING ON, AT LEAST IN THE PART
OF THIS INVESTIGATION THAT’S GOING ON IN OPEN SOURCE
MATERIALS, THE PART OF THIS INVESTIGATION THAT’S HAPPENING
IN THE PRESS. WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT WHAT’S
HAPPENING IN THE PRESS RIGHT NOW IS YOU’RE STARTING GET
INDIVIDUAL SOURCES, USUALLY ANONYMOUS SOURCES, SAYING THINGS
LIKE THIS TO THE GUARDIAN. QUOTE, ONE SOURCE SUGGESTED THE
OFFICIAL INVESTIGATION WAS MAKING PROGRESS.
QUOTE, THEY NOW HAVE SPECIFIC CONCRETE CORROBORATIVE EVIDENCE
OF COLLUSION BETWEEN PEOPLE IN THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND AGENTS OF
RUSSIAN INFLUENCE RELATING TO THE USE OF HACKED MATERIAL.
OH, REALLY? WHO IS THIS SOURCE?
WHAT IS THIS SPECIFIC CONCRETE AND CORROBORATIVE EVIDENCE OF
COLLUSION? WHO KNOWS?
AND THERE’S NO WAY WE CAN ASSESS THE VALIDITY OF THAT CLAIM
WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT IT’S BASED ON OR WHETHER OR NOT THAT SOURCE
IS IN THE POSITION TO KNOW THESE THINGS.
BUT INCREASINGLY YOU ARE SEEING IN THE SERIOUS PRESS LOOKING
INTO THIS SCANDAL, THESE ANONYMOUS SOURCES STARTING TO
MAKE BLUNT DECLARETIVE STATEMENTS LIKE THAT AND
INCREASINGLY LIKE THIS REPORTING FROM THE BRITISH SOURCES
BRAGGING ABOUT HOW EARLY THEY WERE ON THIS STORY, EVEN BEFORE
THE DID YOU MEAN, SLOW AMERICANS, YOU ARE STARTING TO
SEE PEOPLE TRYING TO CLAIM CREDIT FOR KNOWING THIS ALL
ALONG, FOR BEING FIRST TO REALIZE WHERE THIS WAS ALL GOING
EVEN WHEN NOBODY THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT.
WE STILL DO NOT KNOW IF THIS POSSIBLE CRIME WAS COMMITTED.
WE DO NOT KNOW IF THIS ALLEGED COLLUSION BETWEEN TRUMP CAMPAIGN
AND THE RUSSIANS WILL BE PROVEN. BUT WE ARE AT THE PART OF THIS
STORY, I THINK IT’S FAIR TO NOTICE, WHERE PEOPLE ARE
STARTING TO EXPECT THAT THAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN AND THEY’RE
TRYING TO CLAIM CREDIT FOR THEMSELVES FOR HAVING WRITTEN
ABOUT IT IN THE BEGINNING. YOU’RE SEEING IT WITH THE CIA IN
THE UNITED STATES TRYING TO SAY, HEY, IT WASN’T JUST THE FBI.
WE WERE TRYING TO SOUND THE ALARM ON THIS TOO.
WE HAD GOOD DETAIL ON THIS. WE TRIED TO TELL PEOPLE.
YOU’RE SEEING IT WITH THE CIA AND FOREIGN INTELLIGENCE
SERVICES. WE HAD THIS ONE, WE WERE FIRST.
YOU WERE ALSO SEEING IT WITH ANONYMOUS SOURCES WHO ARE
CULTIVATING REPORTERS ON THE STORY EVEN BEFORE THEY’RE READY
TO GIVE THEIR NAMES. I SAW THIS COMING.
WE KNEW THIS WAS GOING TO HAPPEN.
I’M GOING TO BE PROVEN RIGHT. AS TO WHETHER OR NOT WE’LL FIND
OUT WHETHER

  1. Russell Peterson: OMG our prez is seriously mentally ill. And, Putin is back at the YOUTUBE propaganda. We are in a pickle if the EC is corrupt.

  2. Rachel you're a very intelligent young lady and I like your show, but let's get real about why American intelligence did not act on the Intel from around the world about Donald Trump in the Russians. the reasoning is as plain as the nose on your face white people hate black people, I'm sure you're not one of the haters.

  4. You need to go and seek help… Wow. What a convoluted, double think mindset? Do you even know what your real name is?

  5. The name of the genius that broke the Nazi code is Alan Turing. He created the very first computer, a code breaker…

  6. What? Trump was involved with the Uranium 1 deal with colluding Hillary? That's the only Russian collusion with evidence.

  7. Good lord Rachel Maddow puts way too much info in her pieces, unless she has someone who writes for her or writes with her. Just get to the news. I don't really care about mnemonic devices. GCHQ is the Birtish NSA. That's all I needed to know. Get to what I came for.

  8. More offended that USA didn’t know it first rather than if you have a Russian elected president ….. embarrassing

  9. Putin is the one who determines who shall be the US president. Come 2020 for the truth hope it will not proof Americans are idiots the second time.

  10. The top 8 congressmen Brennan went to? One had to have been DEVIN NUNES. Hello??!? Nunes WARNED Trump to Stand Down that he was being seen by Foreign Intel Allies. Devin Nunes is so dirty. He must get a stiff prison sentence

  11. Emagine that. The same people that faked the Russia dossia is giving us reports about Russia. They just want war just like always. War war war. Death distraction and takeover of the world. Destroy good and all that is good.

  12. Trump and his staff have committed treason, obstructed justice, collaborated with a foreign adversity, violated their oath of office and Trump openly profited from his position in a public office.
    Trump openly designed, organized and planned a system which he fraudulently presented information to the general public.
    All of these issues means he will be brought to justice at some point and serve prison time PERIOD.
    THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE MEMBERS OF CONGRESS WHO HAVE BEEN RECEIVING RUSSIAN MONEY'S, GIFTS AND BRIBES.

  13. Perhaps this explains trumps inappropriate anger toward London's mayor. Britain tried to warn us this inappropriate behavior of trumps staff. They tried to warn us.

  14. Who was in the Trump Campaign? This is unsubstantiated information.
    Fact please like who in the Trump Campaign was contacting the Russian.

  15. ENIGMA WAS CRACK BECAUSE THEY STOLEN A ENIGMA KODE MACHINE AND THAT GREAT BRITAIN KNOW TRUMP WIN WAS NOT MI5 OR MI6 AS YOU SAY, IT WAS FACEBOOK WORK PARTNER ANALYTICS THERE SPION AND READ PEOPLE MAIL AND IT WAS NOT MI5 OR MI6 THERE KNOW THE METING, IT WAS ANALYTICS, ANOTHER TING IS. YOUR MI6 IS MI7 AND NOT MI6. THEM YOU CALL MI6 ARE ANALYTICS

  16. With the behaviour of Republicans in Congress, and efforts to shut down Meuller's investigation, I think there is a very deliberate campaign, worldwide, to get as much 'collusion' information into the public arena so that it can not be hidden.. it is a clever idea – it can now be openly discussed and it can take on a life of its' own …

  17. I love old news. More wish sandwiches here that went no where because it wasnt true at all. brennan now works for cnn so why hasnt he said anything about this. If it were true this investigation wouldnt have gone on as long as it has. Real funny. Whats even funnier is that it took her twenty minutes to weave a five minute read into an administration crumbling quilt. funny.

  18. President Trump is the ultimate spy that America has got herself unto..He can now leak very sensitive confidential material to any foreign country who is willing to pay unto Trump' family and he can also set Policy to benefit the other country as and when…Sad

  19. သားေမာင္
    စာျပန္မပို့တတ္လို့ျပန္မပို့နိုင္မွဳ့ပါ မေလးမစားျပုမူမွဳ့မဟုတ္ေျကာင္းပါ တင္ျပလိုက္ပါသည္

  20. So the info went to the CIA and now Trump picked Pompeo first as Director of the C.I.A and is now Trumps Secretary of State strange indeed .In August 2017, Pompeo took direct command of the Counterintelligence Mission Center, the department which helped to launch an investigation into possible links between Trump associates and Russian officials. Former CIA directors expressed concern since Pompeo is known to be an ally of Trump.
    In September 2017, Pompeo sought authority for the CIA to make covert drone strikes without the Pentagon's involvement, including inside Afghanistan.

  21. Everyone wants to be the first to take credit for being the first to know there was Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. This attitude plays directly into Cadet Bone Spurs ego. Instead of being the first, how about all intelligence agencies and the free press combine thier efforts in gathering evidence to convict Cadet Bone Spurs & his minions of Collusion with Russia & treason against America.

  22. Have you noticed that Fox is slandering all facts with a pretend syndrome that Megan McCain and many other Republicans are using?
    Oh, so sad. Here is the real story.
    The Foxies are a fine example of DERANGED TRUMP SYNDROME which is characterized by denial of reality, paranoia, extreme greed, disregard for the humanity of others, willingness to kowtow to dictators and thugs for a few pennies or perceived glory, partnering with the corrupt and turning a blind eye to corruption (including sexual trafficking of minors as in the case of the Kentucky judge who ran that campaign for Trump), disloyalty, cheating, constant lying.
    The TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME is closely allied with PSYCHOPATHY.

  23. the brits could really help us out here .if someone in a position in the DOJ would give british intel the permissioned favor to do so .

  24. If we can catch Russia interfering in America's election, can we not catch them interfering in our own referendum? This Brexit horribleness should never have happened. I'm sure Putin had the motive to want us to vote Leave, I'm sure he wants to weaken the EU and democracy generally. So if he wanted it I'm sure he took steps to act on that, to interfere as he did in the US. And if he did, why aren't we talking about it as we are his hand in the US elections?

  25. The internet/social media operate like traffic in real life if you learn how to manipulate and fluctuate the flow/direction of where information/data transmit then you can control the outcome

  26. BSNBC IS STRUGGLING  DIGGING DIRT  TO STAY RELEVANT

    Didn’t ZERO give IRAN the nuclear weapon and cash to continue supporting terrorism ???

    Somebody is really lying and full of deception ???? and your still listening ???

  28. If the brits were so smart and cracked the Enigma machine does that mean that Wikileaks is correct as well ????

  29. She does all this FAKE investigation on the DON and TOTALLY forget what ZERO did in front of all of us ??? This is why crooked "H" despite the cheating LOST /LOST /LOST and she is still crying ???
    Ah but they forgot
    BSNBC IS STRUGGLING DIGGING DIRT TO STAY RELEVANT
    BSNBC ONLY TALKS ABOUT IS SPECULATION OF TRUMPS DEMISE
    BUT they forget that ZERO knew about Russia in 2014 and (and didnt tell the Trump administration ) and dismissed the Russians on December 2016 (2 years layer )

    Somebody is really lying and full of deception ???? and your still listening ???

  30. Do you believe that
    TRMS is the only one who's this information indicating that the information if fabricated ??? Made up ???

  31. This is a Mad House! This is propaganda in exponential overdrive! Oh, the Mueller investigation spent $20M and two years, and he said no collusion! And, now conveniently, this is found… kinda make Mueller look stupid doesn't it? … As well as you

  32. We have RUSSIAN MOLES in OUR HOUSE And SENATE. NUNEZ, JORDAN, MCCONNELL they are COMPLICIT with trump and PUTIN

  33. Lying fake news Maddow the biggest liar ever.its funny our US INVESTIGATER DURHAM is going to be Questioning Christopher Steele ,who knows exactly who Colluded WITH Russia and christher STEELE is from the UK and we already know it was Crooked Hillary and the Democrats,bad cop Corrupt Mueller who sold URANIUM ONE TO RUSSIA who COLLUDED WITH RUSSIA,so stop your pathetic lying MADDOW your RATINGS HAVE PLUMMETED BECAUSE YOUR REPUTATION AS A BOLD FACE LIAR IS KNOWN AROUND THE WORLD. THOSE WHO SCREAM THE LOUDEST HAVE THE MOST TO LOSE ,THATS U.

  34. Over 800 thumbs down for the pathological LIAR Maddow a disgrace to America and the American citizens.O EVIDENCE,NO FACTS ALL MADE UP LIES.SHAME

  35. So the GCHQ surveiled the Trump campaign members colluding with Russian Agents in Europe! So much for Donald Trump's claims of "the Russian Investigation" being a witch hunt or a hoax, as this is more evidence of Donald Trump evading oversight and still trying to "get away with Obstruction of Justice and Collusion!" This news also puts AG William Barr at risk, as it raises so many more questions that the Dept. of Justice will not want to try and answer as it makes the DoJ and AG Barr look inept and totally biased in Trump's favor!

  36. Can they wrap this up honestly.. It reminds me of the Casey Anthony story.. It will end up the same Trump chilling in Florida w/ the rest of the crazies

  37. Trump crime family exposed and your Republicans are charging taxpayers like you. Hahaha so why are you working.

  38. OPINION:

    PRESIDENT TRUMP WON'T LIKE TO GIVE HIS MONEY TO THE DEMOCRAT- FAVORING COMMUNISM IN CONGRESS, TO THE COMMUNST DEMOCRAT MEDIA, TO THE DEMOCRATS FAVORING OBAMA'S PREVIOUS COMMUNIST/SOCIALIST POLITICIANS, WHILE HE AS REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT HAS HIS ADMINSTRATION TO SURVIVE, TO FIGHT AGAINST OBAMA'S LGBT POLITICS , AND LGBT MEDIA TALK- HOSTS, LIKE MADDOW, TO FIGHT FOR AMERICA TO SURVIVE, AND FOR THE ALLIES TO SURVIVE AGAINST COMMUNISM , AND AGAINST THE POWERFUL ECONOMY OF COMMUNIST CHINA.

    TRUMP WISHES HE HAS ENIGMA TO FIGHT AN INTELLIGENCE , WHICH MADDOW IS TALKING ABOUT.

    THAT'S WHY PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD LIKE THE WEALTHY PEOPLE TO GIVE THEIR TAXES TO HIM, AS THEIR PRESIDENT, NOT TO CONGRESS.

    DON'T GIVE YOUR TAXES TO CONGRESS.

    THAT MAKES AMERICA AND AMERICA 'S PRESIDENT TO BE POWERFUL FOR AMERICA.

    IT'D BECAUSE CONGRESS IS UNDER PREVIOUS OBAMA'S COMMUNIST DEMOCRATS, WHO DO NOT WANT TO COOPERATE WITH THE REPUBLICAN TRUMP'S ADMINISTRATION AND NOT IN COOPERATION OF REPUBLICAN PARTY OF THE MAJORITY, BUT WEAKENED BY THE COMMUNIST MEDIA AND CHINA'S COMMUNIST POWERFUL ECONOMY IN THE MEDIA

  39. Not only the Brits. All agencies around know more than what is healthy for the USA. Don't be surprised what will come out in the open once Trump is impeached. A shame for him that he is an illiterate, he could have start writing novels in prison and get rich by doing so. Information is used as a trade and asset to negotiate inner circle deals. Normally not used to brag about in public.
