  1. Trump is a genius! I didn't think it could be done, but he pulled it off. He blamed the media for their poor vetting process with the Ratcliffe!

    Trump/Putin 2020!

  2. HOW CAN IT BE THAT 16 INTELL AGENCIES WITH MILLIONS EMPLOYEES ON THEIR PAYLIST ALWAYS FAIL WHEN THERE IS SOMETHING OCCURING IN THEIR OWN COUNTRY , WE SAW IT HAPPEN WITH THE JFK KILLING , WE SAW IT HAPPEN WITH THE  9/11 ATTACK,  WE SAW IT HAPPEN WITH THE BOSTON BOMBERS, WE SAW IT HAPPEN IN 2016 WHEN THE RUSSIAN HAD FREE RIDE TO HACK ,TO INTERFERE, IN MEDDLING , INTO COLLUSION AND INTO CONSPIRACY, WE SAW IT HAPPEN 2017 WITH THE LAS VEGAS "MASSACRE " BUT ONLY AFTERWARDS THEY KNOW ALL IN AND OUTS AND THEN ADMITS THEIR OWN FAILURE, HOW NEAT IS THAT.
    NOW THEY PRETEND TO KNOW WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE REST OF THE WORLD IN DETAIL , BUT THEY CAN NOT PREVENT NOR PROTECT THEIR OWN COUNTRY AND THEIR CITIZENS . NOW HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE ??  Well i know the answer, but i rather want to let the Americans think for themselves, then to have a blind trust in a complete stranger which they never met before. 
    So that have said the question must be , do you believe any fellow American by what he is saying to you, do you dare to trust anybody blindfolded like a sort of HOLY BELIEVE that any stranger will not lie to you ? his intention is undisputed truthfull,  just think. When somebody is hiding certain facts for you for over more then 50 years which is actually working for your interests and paid by your money,  what does this type of secrecy ment for you,  just think.
    Because these same incompetent INTELL agencies doing nothing else then coverup, hiding,  redacting , deceiving, manipulating and other scrutiny or otherwise just lying to the American people and everybody seems to find that allright, its just amazing. PLEASE WAKE UP PEOPLE BE AWARE OF THIS SCRUTINY !!

  3. Hmmmm people comment like they know all and everything ha ha ha yea right! Guess what use no nothing only how to moan and cry and turn a blind eye to the real enemy the Demorats research research research research

  4. trouble is anybody with a deep understanding of intelligence , will want to give trump truthful information that trump does'nt want to hear…thus america will get a sycophant in a area of government which deals with the defence of america …God help america if saudi dissents plan another attack on america….for this is something trump will not want to hear..for like King Tigranes II , who killed messengers bringing him news he did'nt want to hear…trump will not hear threats to america he does'nt want to hear, and anybody that does so , will be dismissed ror forced to quit..and thus american is weaker for it 🙁

  5. Oh Radcliffe, – Karma is real boy, you attacked Mr Mueller for telling the truth and yet your online resume is full of LIES. How unpatriotic.

  6. So Trump's pattern is showing, it's in the daylight. He's doing his best to divert attention away from the crises he knows are ready to pounce……#Trumpisamobster #Trumpisamobster #Trumpisamobster #Trumpisamobster

  7. Dumb Donald strikes again by trying to include one of his dangerously unqualified, incompetent, swamp dwellers into his corrupt cabinet.

  8. Donald Trump ain't stupid, he knows that Russia is attacking our country and it's NOT that the thought makes him insecure it's the deal he has going with Russia that might come to light if Trump was to really act on Russia's attacking of our democracy . (FACT)

  9. When will “moscow mitch be deported to russia??

    When will his corrupted wife elaine chao aka “china chao” be deported to china?

    mitch blocks many bills from being brought to the Senate floor for debates. These bills aim to protect our beloved America from foes, in particular putin, china, north korea.

    Both traitor trump and moscow mitch commit treasons every day when they fail to protect America (even when they took an oath to do so).

    Please VOTE them out of their office in 2020 to protect our beloved America.

    Please!

  10. Thank you Joy, for bringing Ron Wyden on your show. And thank you to Ron Wyden for you sane and common sense views

  11. For trump the whole thing is a joke, so why not nominate whomever you last saw on Fox news? Trump is not a President, but he is a dictator. Name one thing he didn't get his way. If you think you found one, think again. He just hasn't finished with that one. Take immigration for instance. Remember the Muslim ban? We have a Muslim ban! SCOTUS made that permanently legal. Trump is your de facto dictator.

  12. The most important job an intelligence analyst is to be able to tell the president what he may not be willing to hear, something that is antithetical to Trump's nature. What competent professional would want that job?
    Bear in mind that the last time we had a leader that cooked up the intelligence to suit his political ends, this nation got into a needless war in which thousands of Americans died, trillions of dollars were spent and the region was thrown into chaos with the United States in a weaker position strategically and politically.

  13. Trump did not ditch him the nasty Democrats did it so stop saying Trump is responsible for his pick!If Ratcliff could not take the heat Trump will choose someone else who can and who will do the work you're afraid they will be doing in the long run!

  14. DONALD TRUMP THE GOP AND FOX NEWS ET AL ARE TRAITORS AND DOMESTIC TERRORISTS. THEY DUMB YOUR POPULATION DOWN, RADICALIZE THEM WITH LIES ABOUT 'THE OTHER' AND THEN FLOOD YOUR COUNTRY WITH GUNS. DEFEND YOUR COUNTRY AGAINST THESE COWARDLY ATTACKERS.

  15. I love seeing the video of 45 walking down the street in front of The Beast. That is when the shot should have been taken!

  16. 1:04 Perhaps spoken like an incompetent imbecile? Some might say; a mouth breathing, inbred, knuckle dragging reject Neanderthal? The world continues to laugh at his incoherent stupidity on a daily basis, and will continue to do the same when his chapter in "presidential" history is written.

  17. America is now a joke around the world. This past beacon of democracy worldwide is faced with the possibility of a sitting president who is a traitor to the country, and there is nothing any of our democratic institutions can offer to remove him as president. This president will have another 4 years, during which time he will amend the constitution to make himself president for life (with the complicity of the Republican controlled Senate), and there is nothing Americans can do to prevent it. Trump has already said the constitution gives him the right to do whatever he wants, so he's only waiting for his 2nd term to really flex his muscles.

  18. You poor people, having elected this buffoon, how embarrassing. I know we in the UK also have our very own buffoon n charge now, but at least we did not democratically elect him

  19. Apparently dumb idiotic orangutan wants to outsourcing this country national intelligence to the foreign finesse, Russian KGB/FSB and Chinese Ministry of Intelligence Thugs.

  20. Does Trump have. Chopper sit on the White House lawn so that he can look as if he’s working, while yelling bs at the cameras? No, actually he’s on his way to one of his golf clubs for a few rounds, AT THE EXPENSE OF TAX PAYING AMERICANS. As the rich have had a tax cut, that’s everyone who works 1or2or3jobs to pay rent and feed their families. How long are you going to let this con artist screw you?

  21. "Senator Ron Wyden all of sudden is concerned about National Security…maybe you should have said that three fuk'n years ago, Senator!"

  22. Everything must be done not to make the President "feel insecure", that is the primary purpose of the GOP and White House staff, and they are doing a good job.

  23. If you report/flag Russian trolls, does YouTube remove their comments or ban them? They need to be stopped before the election. The majority have the sense to scope them out, but the minority – RepuliKKKans fall for it every time. We have to protective ourselves from them since the comrades in our government like Moscow Mitch and Moscow Trump refuse to do it.

  24. Trump is working with the Russians to attack and steal our elections. That's the fact. so stop pushing this dumb talking point that Russia attacked us. Donald Trump and Russia ARE ATTACKING US! FULL STOP

  25. . . . So . . . Trump trusts his biggest enemy, the Fake News Media, to vet his security and cabinet nominations?…
    Genius!

  26. Our greatest adversary is the unconstitutioinal OLC opinion (although foreign invasion is also a concern). If not for that, we wouldn't be having this foreign interference nonsense. A president should fear the law, like any other citizen, or it's just an invitation to corruption.

    The 2020 election is already being compromised by the media which promotes Biden and gives limited coverage to Sanders.

  27. Ok, people I have figured it out.
    Here’s how we are going to do this:
    Russia hacks the election to help the Republicans and China hacks to help the Democrats.
    Just think of how happy that would make EVERYONE!

  28. "The Original Clinton Chronicles" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCGW033-82c A documentary filled with interviews with law enforcement, past Clinton associates, and others, who talk about THE CLINTON COCAINE CARTEL, the witnesses they murdered (which include 5 teenage boys from Arkansas), Bill's cocaine-orgies w/ Little Rock high school cheerleaders, and more. #FuckMSNBC #DemExit #WalkAway

  29. Seriously, America is VERY ill prepared for an attack from whoever, the last defense min. a
    'boing' CEO, and THIS joke, are you kidding. This opinion isn't from watching 'fake news', everybody has to do their OWN research from diff sources than just the news channels.
    The people in place in so many positions do not have experience, they are put in by favoritism , not experience, absolute stupidity. Russia and China, they'll join forces to a degree, and are WAY more functional in leadership of their countries. Right now it's a good thing other countries are a little more 'professional' than this childish mess of leadership.

  30. Rachel Madcow is the enemy of the people. MSNBC colluded with Russia to influence the outcome of a presidential election. Madcow and Schiiff still claim there is evidence. The lies are too funny.

  31. Appointing a doofus as head of the DNI was Trumps intention. Radcliffes ineptitude, underqualification and servile attitude made him a perfect fit.

  32. What? Wait a minute! trump sound as if he's giving the press some positive credit. Press saved us from THE inexperienced. YAY!!

  33. He has a short list of three names in his pocket. I'm confused, I thought he had the best memory? Of course he really has no list in his pocket, the only thing it in his pocket is a coupon for KFC.

  34. LOL McConnell SEEMS to be very accommodating to President Trump? He would bend over and spread his cheeks on command.

  35. You call every media outlet, other than Fox, fake news. Yet, you trust them enough to vet your personal picks for your administration? Not only is he bad for American and global democracy, he’s bad for our health on every level, but especially on the mental and emotional level. Witnessing this blatant insanity daily is beyond draining.

  36. It’s only the most important job regarding intelligence – of course trump will screw it up. He doesn’t want to hear about what Russia is doing. He just wants them to pass information about trump’s opponents via Norway…

  37. I heard Nancy say they make up a lie then tell the news people who then pushes it on to the people..what is up with that? Is she a liar? No, she meant it.

  38. Trump just like his base are morons. They are the result of moronism. The offsprings of idiocy and science illiteracy. Nothing that they say will fix anything. They are blockades, that sprout from accumulation of heavy negative tendencies (hatred, authoritarianism, supremacy). They long for fascism, dictatorship and rule of power. Under hordes of morons inspired by few snake-oil lying brutes.

  39. MSNBC breaking news, “President Trump is trying to hire people but the Liberal Media has decided to trash any Trump Nominations.”

  40. I'm probably wrong but I wonder if Ratcliffe slipped and somehow he mentioned he wouldn't push trump's agenda.

    In that case, how bad is it that trump won't select you for his team. It's like not being selected in a kid's pick up game.

  41. If the media is the vetting process for Trump’s picksthen maybe the media should pick the person to fill the position

  42. What, Moscow-Mitch not supporting Ratcliff, doing the right thing–I had to replay that section of the vd three times.  Moscow-Mitch keep it up, maybe you can save your soul at the end.  Ratcliff has fry egg splat on his face–how embarrassing, how deserving, how can you walk around the Capitol now.
