Chuck Todd Urges Trump Impeachment: ‘How Much More Do You Need to Know?’

In a softball interview with Virginia Democratic Senator Tim Kaine on Sunday’s Meet the Press, moderator Chuck Todd wondered if a report in the New York Times about the FBI investigating President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia in 2017 meant it was time for congressional Democrats to begin impeachment proceedings.

At the top of show, Todd argued that the “political crisis” of the ongoing government shutdown was being used by the President “to deflect focus from his own legal jeopardy.” Minutes later, while talking to Kaine, the NBC anchor noted how the former vice presidential candidate made the case for Trump colluding with Russia during the 2016 campaign:

"Senator, on the campaign trail in 2016, you spent the last two months regularly questioning the President, at that time candidate, Donald Trump’s ties to Vladimir Putin, complimentary ways he talked about things. So you have those questions that you had, as a candidate. Now, you have this story in the New York Times that has the FBI worried that the President acted on Comey at the behest of the Russian government."

At that point, Todd suggested it was time for liberal lawmakers to take action: “Does that mean that Democrats should be looking at actually beginning impeachment proceedings? Or is this something you think, let the Mueller probe go first?” He impatiently added: “How much more do you need to know?”

Are the walls closing in on the real perps? Why else would he embarrass himself with such illogical reasoning?

Extraneus,

I have noticed a lot of nuttiness on the dem side smacking of panic and desperation (like that tweet I posted on the previous page).

Meanwhile, President Trump seems jovial, confident, and full of energy.

I would agree that the walls are closing in.

The FBI was "worried."
Two years later, everyone knows that was b.s.
Ergo, Impeach Trump!

Not only does it make no sense, it's so dumb that anyone touting it is advertising themselves as a complete idiot. Yet they're doing it anyway.

Why wouldn't they move off this and onto the emoluments clause or some other claptrap, just to protect their own reputations?

Seems more like panic than a real plan.

That the FBI conducted an extensive counterintelligence investigation of [Henry] Wallace was unknown until 1983 – eighteen years after his death. Citing reporting by the Des Moines Register, the New York Times explained that “Wallace was watched by the Federal Bureau of Investigation while he was Vice President under Franklin D. Roosevelt and Secretary of Commerce for Harry S. Truman, and also in his 1948 run for the Presidency” and that “the bureau opened Wallace’s mail, tapped his supporters’ telephones and used informers and agents to trail him in search of ”possible Communist or pro-Soviet ties.'”

MM, that rancher using the Vatican as the paragon of morality could have picked a better example.

Extraneus
For decades, the FBI also maintained a massive dossier on long-time liberal Senator and 1972 Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern – first because he was suspected of Kremlin sympathies and then because he was a critic of the FBI. Among other things, the FBI, while relentlessly tracking his life, discovered that McGovern had fathered a child out of wedlock, and in the words of USA Today, “somehow, the material ended up with President Richard Nixon’s re-election campaign – possibly leaked by the bureau’s longtime director, J. Edgar Hoover.”

IT IS NOT DIFFICULT to understand what is so ominous and even tyrannical about the FBI investigating domestic political figures whose loyalties they regard as “suspicious,” and whose political career they regard as a “national security threat,” simply because those politicians express policy positions about U.S. adversaries that the FBI dislikes or regards as insufficiently belligerent.

I wonder if the Democrats, MSM, or SJW nutjobs can inform us what are the substantive differences between a white nationalist and a white supremacist?

I am white and an American citizen who is patriotic. Does that make me a white nationalist and/or a Nazi fascist in the eyes of the Left?

Chuck Todd Giddy Over Dems ‘Embracing’ Liberal Label

“Not long ago, Republicans loved calling Democrats liberal. They didn’t mean it as a compliment. And for a while, it was effective. Today, Democrats are embracing the label,” Todd proclaimed as he teased the upcoming segment. Minutes later, during the show’s Data Download segment, the NBC moderator hyped the new Gallup survey and asked: “Among Democrats, is the term, ‘liberal,’ no longer a dirty word?”

“2018 was the first time a majority of Democrats, 51% of them, called themselves liberal,” Todd noted, adding: “It’s quite a change from where things stood when Bill Clinton was president. In 1994, 25% of Democrats called themselves liberal.”

He then looked at ideological labels among Americans overall:

"And it’s not just Democrats, by the way, who are more comfortable calling themselves liberal. The public, overall, is more comfortable calling themselves liberal. In 1992, 17% of Americans said they were liberal. In 2018, the number is now 26%, a nine-point increase. And in the same period of time, the percentage of folks calling themselves conservative remained mostly flat among the electorate as a whole, while the percentage of moderates has decreased by eight points."

Tom R:

in the parlance of "anti-racism" activists such as Dr. Cornel West, Derek Bell, bell hooks, Gloria Anzaldua, The Peoples Institute for Survival and Beyond, SPLC, Angela Davis, and legions of others--

"the culture of white supremacy" has DNA which establishes, almost undetectably, "white is right", "white is superior", "white is on top" more about that in a moment.

yes, the label "white supremacist" has been permanently affixed to the extremist neo-nazi militia types who "cohere" around Mein Kampf and other manifestos.

but that is what confuses the "innocent" white American who's not a Third Reich afficianado. a friend of mine used to say "i'm just the 3rd white guy from the left in the photo."

true enough.

where the anti-racists (racists) steer the narrative is with the assertion that ALL institutions in America are BIASED, and therefore racist, because they promote the cultural standard of "white supremacy"... white is right (always), white is just (always), white is best (always), white is first in everything (always)....

THEREFORE, all of the institutions involved in the following, are racist because they conserve the culture of white supremacy that is buttressed by the following:

Academia, banking and finance, capital formation, employment systems, mental health systems, health systems, science, militarism, education, recreation and leisure, natural resource development and consumption, religious organization, politics, civic life, government, entertainment, law, production of historical texts, etc etc etc.

the "innocent" will hear this "analysis" and tend to reject it out of hand because they do not participate *PERSONALLY* in the conservation of white cultural supremacy ("i have no power. Al Sharpton has more power than i do.")

and that opens the Steve King's to the slam by the hyena media. Where do they get off being the slammers? it is the politics of "envy avoidance." they fear getting the evil eye from the ranks of the "organized oppressed."

Rush spoke of this at length today. a transcript of the show from today (1/14/19) might contain his delivery. he ties together, very competently, the role of the Democrats, the "not me!" fear of condemnation, and the hyena media in this travesty against free thought.

the rap is vulnerable to one thing, and one thing only--- mass defection by African-Latin-Asian-Native American people from the Oppression Olympics for the sake of getting government checks, for whatever use and purpose those might be desired.

the rap has been developed in earnest since 1983 down in Yellow Springs Ohio. there are cracks forming now that the "movement" has veered deep into the socialist weeds, with its marxist roots, coming near to the border of outright communism.

but more and more of the "oppressed" are walking away. Trump's ratings demonstrate such.

anyways.

my two cents from a long history fighting two front wars on college campuses where none of the good guys are good guys. the stakes are too high. and it is a zero sum game.

Spare me all the people who were fired. Who the hell is in jail.

In 2015, the FBI admitted ADMITTED that for over 20 years nearly every single "expert" in the hair analysis division had lied on the stand. Twenty years. Point blank made up the field of hair analysis. Something like 26 agents. All of which, again, admittedly, committed perjury. Of those cases, 32 were death penalty cases. By the time this was admitted, 14 people had been executed.

To the best of my knowledge, not a single person involved ever saw the second of the inside of a cell for that.

Don't tell me that there will be a house cleaning. There won't be.

Oh and the FBI burnt children to death in Waco, killed Randy Weaver's family, and killed Richard Jewell. It took decades for Richard Jewell to die, but kill him the FBI did.
