100 thoughts on “Fmr Prosecutor: Trump AG ‘Frightened” To Face Mueller Questions | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC

  1. The fricking republithugs are worried about themselves all while the Russians are destroying our Democratic Institutions. The president should not get a free get out of jail card just by being elected.

  2. Rosenstein ended up looking like a weasel…. 1) Wrote a memo justifying dismissal of Comey; 2) endorsed Barr's 1000 word report "exonerating" the Trumspter, which the Mueller report did NOT1

  3. As one congressman said they need to start jailing those who do not apply with congressional requests or subpoenas.

  4. You must force this corrupt little henchman to testify, Under Oath. if he were not corrupt, if he had nothing to hide, he would have no reason to be so afraid of telling the truth. But, he is afraid of telling the truth, like everyone who is part of this sick corrupted administration.
    He is filthy and everyone knew it before his appointment, that filthiness is why he was appointed. Trump know all of the best crooks.

  5. Here trump goes again mimicking his mentor’s mantra, the Roy Cohn three-dimensional strategy, which is:
    1. Never settle, never surrender, never apologize.
    2. Counter-attack, counter-sue immediately.
    3. No matter what happens, no matter how deeply into the muck you get, claim victory and never admit defeat.

    Roy Cohn, McCarthy’s lawyer, was one of America's most destructive psychopaths, and so is trump.

  6. Leonaza 7, comments under grim reefer. Is angry about Obama lies, mueller report, Clinton. I guess it can continue to other irrelevance. Lincoln, Jesus Christ.

    Leonaza 7, I’m not angry, Just disappointed that Putin-trump trolling standards have dropped to such whataboutism gibberish as their main defense. Please tell your leaders, especially as trump dominoes are failing, you’ll need better trolling to be effective. You’re hurting Putin-trump more than your helping.

  7. Barr faces DISBARMENT FOR LYING.
    MUELLER WRITES A LETTER TO BARR SAYING THAT BARRS SUMMARY COMPLETELY DISTORTS WHAT THE MUELLER SAYS.
    The Mueller report PROVES THAT DUMP IS A CROOK AND A LIAR AND DUMP SHOULD BE IMPEACHED IMMEDIATELY.

  8. We are living in a time of greed… there are still people in America who show humility, honor, dignity…and are very ashamed of who is in the White House

  9. Bill Barr is not afraid to go to Congress it's just the plane just landed. And he has to clean the plane check all the plane needs it will take him a while to finish the needs of the plane.. Just wait pls. And he need to bring the plane to the car wash..

  10. The Attorney General is required to answer questions to Congress. He’s not required to answer questions of a bunch of staff members. This Attorney General is a Saint compared to that corrupt POS Eric Holder who was found in contempt of Congress not once but twice. Remember when Holder couldn’t prosecute the Black Panthers for their blocking white voters at polling places for lack of evidence when we had their crimes on video tape? Holder was corrupt and in contempt of the American people. In his first speech he called America a Nation of Cowards! He’s a total POS!

  11. BAHAHAHA BAHAHAHA KEEP LOOKING 4 SOMETHING TILL U FIND IT N 6 YRS!! U WILL FIND A GREAT ECONOMY AND AMERICA IS STRONG AGAIN!!

  12. I believe it's funny to see these out-of-touch leftist twits pretending to know the difference between facts and their hate and contempt towards common sense.

  13. 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 It doesn’t matter how much good 45 does while in office. Because all people will really remember about his administration is this. God don’t act ugly so all that trying to ruin Obama’s legacy crap came right back on him, and his presidency will forever be tarnished from here on out.

  14. Get rid of that barrier s.o.b. I'm peach trump and get rid of his people they are wrong for this country amen

  15. Tru.p is a liar and will even screw his own people in the end remember fake diamond cuff for being faithful

  16. Realworld..if barr thinks trump is innocent then why cant he go infront of the committee and prove it…. Hmmmmm

  17. This is the reason DJT stacked the courts. I’ll be happy if I’m wrong, but mark my words. Barr isn’t going to show.

  18. Another one bites the dust
    And another one comes
    And another one comes
    And another one bites the dust

  19. Trump why the domestic violence shelter. In Lorain ohio I was at way before identity was stolen…also they put me out for missing the bus..the lorain domestic violence shelter let somebody use identity to get medical services….hmm fbi ?

  20. You were pretty cocky in your remarks, non-answers, and snotty comments…..is that why you are afraid to testify? What else could you be afraid of? Barr, after all the fuss and muss you caused you really do NEED to testify and clear the air! After all, the people that act as staff prosecutors are your peers…so why be afraid of them?

  21. On Rosenstein I have to wonder what he really thinks. When he stood behind Barr at that press conference he stood stiff and staring straight ahead like a statue. Clearly he didn't want to show any reaction to what Barr was saying and then later he resigns. Now that he has resigned it will mean that congress can freely subpoena him to testify and there will be nothing the WH can do to stop that. I am quite shore that will happen as well as have Mueller and his staff testify but not after they question Barr and existing WH members first.

    While someone question that if Barr was all for trump then why did he release the Mueller report with all that damning evidence that Mueller put in it? This might be the case but on what ground would he of had to suppress the Mueller report? By doing that he would be risking being disbarred and jail times for taking part in a coverup. I suspect that Rosenstein does have something to say and wants to say it but was unable to do so while working in the trump's DOJ. Time will tell.

  22. So many puppets here hahaha… Trump 2020 and the finish of the criminal party… Praise God…

  23. The rise of populism is the work of what Russian trolls are doing. They are spreading disinformation to divide people. We saw this with Brexit, then in Austria, Poland and now Spain. To stop this there are 2 things to ask whenever someone makes a claim.

    1) ask what their sources are. This to weed out those just repeating what thye heard
    2) Also ask for verifiable evidence to back their claims

    If they can then you just have to check their sources and evidence which you can talk about. If all checks out they you have something to think about.

    If they can not then clearly they are either just repeating something without checking it and/or lying. You can then dismiss what they are saying and let them know if they can't provide you with what you want then their claims are baseless and can be dismissed with no evidence.

    If they tell you to google it then they clearly don't have the information you've asked and either don't know what that means or they know they can't. So push back and let them know that if they can't back their claims then they are baseless and probably made up. It is always the responsibility of the one making the claim to provide the evidence to back them up. If they can't then they should not be making such a claim.

  24. If an alien spaceship lands on Earth in order to establish if there are any intelligent forms of life, then I pray to God that they don't land in America.

  25. Billy "Low-Barr" is such a stooge and a coward! Is it too much to ask for an honest AG?
    He has no credibility at all! How does he rationalize his lies and subjugation of the American people? His lack of candor hurts us all by tainting and contorting Mueller's Investigation and final report. Shame… shame… shame on him!!!

  26. Trump has promised Rosenstein a job with lots of money. No question about it. The problem is, Trump is a huge liar and crook…

  27. Where are the Republicans! Don't they work For the People too! Tf is up with these journalist not bringing that up. Stop hiding behind your criminal President! Can't wait for 2020 election. & if the Dems do nothing, we voting them out!

  28. dems will screw it up. they're weak and now just like the gop shirking their responsibilities, they will do the same. pathetic. this is why the public hates politicians. the dems will mess up and get trump reelected. just wait and see.

  29. A PODCAST — Amazing idea to get people tuned in & educated! I love that she did voices LOL What's up with with bleeping when literally said EFF'ed?! Already censored!

  30. fRump sez: Now they say Deutsche Bank is a criminal organization! That can't be true! Putin told me they are AAA+ for laundering money! I like my money clean, like everyone else.

  31. How is Barr going to explain this situation to his grandson. Is he going to say the Rule of Law doesn't exist! How is he going to explain to his grandson about Mr. Muellers' report?

  32. Rosenstein proves democracts hate jews.

    They wanted him in. And now want him out.

    The synagouge shooter was a hillary clinton voter.

    Because she is anti jew and anti israel.

    Welcome to america where the Nazi socialist party lives on.

    In a party who now embraces nazi ideals.

  33. Why do people attempt to present the news like it is believable, with a head line like shocking ect..ect. If it does not come from a non sensational head line I do not what it. The russian and chinese are in the process of fing our democracy with the internet and no one cares. If some one sucker punched me I would want revenge big time. That means russia hit us is a act of war.

  34. He made his discision leave him alone he can pleg the fifth. These Democratic are so evil they will try anything to get Trump.

  35. Not at all amazed by Barr report as Trump is his Boss,and we all know Barr is a yes Boss Man,and a Justice Department redactions for his Boss Trump,Congress now needs to Act against fake toxic people running America,

  36. Mr. Rosenstein I had saw an interview of yours about how you told a story about a portrait of Robert H. Jackson you had in your office and that it was placed to be always be looking over your shoulder. You must've moved it or turned that portrait around when you chose to pick your career over your country.

  37. The idea for a podcast reading of the Mueller Report is great. But do not let Hillary Clinton be the narrator or do the reading of it. The broader public needs to be informed and should get insight into that report and fast! This country is so divided, many people have already made up their mind as to the content and context of that report….they are either set to believe it or set downright against it. (Think Lindsey Graham) HRC is so disliked by so many of the people that would be well served to know and understand the Mueller Report, her reading of said report would discredit it completely.

    Please! Do a podcast but Do Not let HRC be the narrator.

  38. I just hang my head in disbelief. A criminal running the place and they don’t know how to get rid of him. Is this the great democratic model you want others to follow?

  39. Barr needs to be held accountable and imprisoned if necessary. Covering up for the president is neglect of his responsibilities as attorney general!

  40. Lol I hope they comply, and were gonna prosecute even if they don't come, what bafoon. Msnbc propaganda the most relateable too CNN's fake news, love your little staged attack In Venezuela, I'm sure you tricked your sheeple well

  41. They need to have a subpoena right now waiting so if he doesn't show up they can go and escort him there

  42. Hillary reading about Trump. The second biggest loser reading about the first biggest loser. I frankly don't want to ever hear about Trump or Hillary again. They are both embarrassments of the USA. Impeach Trump and let Hillary retire to the shadows never to be heard from again. PLEASE!

  43. Did he email it? :)… Cuz that may be the problem. Are we sure the letter they published is the letter he sent?

  44. Isn't it strange that Rosenstein shielded Mueller and took the bullets aimed at the entire Mueller team and the investigation itself, from Trump, from the Republicans, from Fox "news" and the entire right wing, for over two years. He has always stayed in the shadows, didn't once sway and took all the insults, threats and accusations calmly and qietly. And then, the moment Barr appears and starts his shady, behind-the-curtain coverups and misrepresentations, Rosenstein suddenly decides to change his mind, inexplicably stays on the job until the Mueller report is out and thus gives it the aura of legitimacy under the stooge Barr, and then he stands there, stone-faced and lifeless, behind Barr, as Barr lies the stars from the night skies down for Donald, and distorts the truth and even openly claims Rosensteins is absolutely happy about Barr's handling of the whole thing. And now he sudennly sends Donald, who bullied him openly for two years, a bromancing love letter of praise and "total exoneration", and then disappears in a puff of smoke. Heavens only knows what Barr is using against Rosenstein to force this charade, but Rosenstein's eyes full of death as he stood behind lying Barr will enter both the books of psychology and will be one of the most quoted moments of Trumplandian crimes saga. In this era of leaks, we will know the entire "Rosenstein metamorphosis" story rather soon, and it will not be the nice one. He knew that the entire world was watching his face, and whatever he is now writing and saying, I have a feeling that the real message, and the only truthfull one he can give now, was in his eyes.

  45. Barr is under no obligation to submit to the Democrat demagogues in the Senate. Trump will be re-elected in 2020. All democrats need to go back to law school, because it's obvious that they are getting their butts kicked. Grasping at straws is not a political strategy.

  46. I guess TRUMP finally PAID for his office. It is quite obvious now that TRUMP PAID each and every Senator to defend him. PAID WITH CASH. What a government we have…full of thieves and criminals.

  47. turns out that Rod Rosenstein was Trump's MOLE. After all his phony speeches about " maintaining the integrity of the investigation.

    Rosenstein was on Trump's team protecting the president the whole time.What a snake in the grass he turned out to be. Rosenstein, Barr, and Trump conspired to take exclusive possession of the Mueller report and then spin it into blatant lies..Barr should be impeached. They are all guilty of obstruction.

  48. Regarding the Nationalism in other countries: Steve Bannon has been involved in at least some of it. I saw one documentary on this, and Bannon was actually interviewed.

  49. I thought the Clinton News Network,s viewer were mentally sick but looking at some of the comments on here, your just as sick and the news just as fake. How are you all still allowed to roam free.

  50. Those under investigation have decided the rules/terms of investigations. Refusing to testify/selecting questions to answer/amnesia aren't procedural norms. The investigated don't set parameters/terms of investigations. The entire investigation has been tainted by Nunes/Rosenstein/Barr etc. Make subpoenas/contempt/incarceration mandatory for failure to comply with Congress.

  51. Frightened you gotta be kidding me. SOON lots of COMMIE Dems will be heading to jail😊 as for the MSM you don't give a crap about the real truth and the Violations the Obama administration committed. I pray you will loose you broadcasting licences and be charged for being part of this attempted COUP. GOD BLESS our POTUS 🇺🇸🇺🇸👍

  52. Benefited the least…holy cow, are you kidding me, Comey let her off the hook for all she did….I'd say she benefited quite a lot

  53. Sure bring in Clinton, not under oath, no recordings etc….didn't seem to be a problem for you all then…

  54. The whole Meuller report UNREDACTED is available for congress to read but they fail to do so . Why are they crying for the report, it’s available as it was written by Meuller and not one word unredacted. It’s just That the Dems are too dumb and stupid to read it. A fifth grade student could understand the report but the DemoRats can’t.

  55. What is the news on Barr visiting Epstein the night before he died? True or False! Cleaning things up for trump
    Or himself?
