    How come Americans aren't able to say "false" and "lie" anymore, but "untrue"?
    Do you say "turn unleft at the next corner", or "let's vote unright at the next election"?

  • Matthew Harrold

    Finally, mainstream media catches up with the tech-media. This is well known amongst the geeks. The silence was dodgy AF.

  • Danny Mullins

    WTF Why do the New York Times and the FBI take political decisions. It is not their decision to make. Political cowardice.

  • TheSWolfe

    Thank u. This extremely revealing bit of evidence was buried & forgotten by most almost as soon as it surfaced, which has bothered me ever since. For shame, NYT! Even a never-ending string of apologies would be insufficient, given the damage done by Drumpf & his mal-admin these past 2 yrs. Blatant crimes blanketed by even more blatant lies & defiant, half-hearted cover-ups, ad nauseum, this is the American dream of Drumpf's rancid, corrupt regime. Shameless charlatan, may he fall hard & far.

  • aufero

    Without Rachel, I'd be lost in the Russian/Trump quagmire. She has diligently helped me piece 99% of the loose ends together, to give me the best overview possible. Thank you Rachel!

  • Gary Dixon

    There is a day of reckoning coming for Russian collusion. Only it will be Hillary paying the price, Not Trump. Unless selling the Russian's, "Uranium" is not against the law. Don't they make A-Bombs with Uranium?

  • Jim Menard

    Fake News Media to quick to Lie about our great president and to Quick to bash him ,but like Justice KAVANAUGH said that what goes around comes around and u Fake News are messing with the wrong president.youf sealed indictments are coming soon.when Trump DECLASSES FISA IT WILL BRING DOWN THE HOUSE AND FAKE NEWS MEDIA FOR GOOD GAME OVER.

  • Jim Menard

    Now that the FAKE Trump RUSSIAN COLLUSION was PROVEN FALSE when do the Trials for TREASON begin for bad cop Corrupt Mueller? MUELLER has O EVIDENCE but MUELLER does have tons of evidence on Criminal Corrupt Crooked Hillary and the Demonrats for Paying For dossier the fake Trump Russian collusion all because Criminal Corrupt Crooked Hillary LOST.to bad boo hoo

  • mwood341

    Now that Democrats control the House, they need to subpoena Cendyn ASAP for those outgoing records. That’s the next piece in this puzzle.

  • Serge Laforest

    Trump is a traitor because he is Homeland seller to Putin perharps he is a KGB because he sells his soul to Dickens the he must go to the jail for eternity.

  • Len Ovo

    Once you come to understand that Rachel Maddow is obsessed with hurting President Trump politically, you cannot see her show in any other light. It's like when you realized that those shiny legs were actually white paint, you just cannot unsee it.

  • James Mckeraghan

    SEEMS TO ME WERE REALLY FCKED HE WAS ARE ONLY HOPE NOW WE WILL BE FCED FOR SURE NO MATTER WHAT WITH OUT TRUMP WE WILL BE A 3RD WORLD COUNTRY

  • James Mckeraghan

    W/O TRUMP MUSLUMS/IMMIGRANTS WILL TAKE OVER OUR COUNTRY AND WE WILL BECOME THE MINORITY IN OUR OWN COUNTRY NOW WHAT HA

  • Danny Mullins

    How did the NYT , FBI and Obama get it so wrong in not exposing Trump and his Russian connections prior to the election. Simple :they vastly underestimated his chances.

  • Smileyface Smileyface

    I said that rump was given money from the Russian banks. Rump is nothing but a lying conman..Rump said he has no dealings with Russia. What a habitual liar. I have been saying this for the longest no one believed me. The truth will always come too light.

  • Smileyface Smileyface

    Don the con is finally going too be called out for his corrupt behavior. A lie will always changes, but the true stays the same. Rump, is as corrupt as they come.

  • Smileyface Smileyface

    The Republicans GOP covered up all of rumps, corruption. That's why lying Ryan jumped ship. Because he knew rump was going to be found out. I hope Mueller gets him
    I found out the same information by doing research, So Mueller should have even more dirt. On don the con.

  • Smileyface Smileyface

    This is why rump, is trying to turn people against the media. So when the truth comes out about him people will say it's fake news. Rump is corrupt.

  • Clarity of Mind

    Trump knows he can play with the government again in three weeks while he gets his way to have his State of the Union on schedule so he can show his lies to the American people and then proceed to shut down the government again. Nancy Pelosi should reschedule his State of Union to be a few weeks after the next budget crisis and see if he will be happy. Watch!

  • pat griffin

    The New Yorker piece on Alfa Bank is excellent. Clearly, this is the secure back channel set up by Eric Prince for secure communication between Putin and team Trump.

  • Nicki nurse

    So when Kushner suggested setting up the Russian back channel immediately after the inauguration…..he was just basically wanting to CONTINUE what they were already doing.

  • Shadow

    Hopefully you'll be around to expose the big banks the next time they do what they did before. 2006 to 2012. And I won't be the only one listening to an inebriated accountant spill the beans next to Boston's Dewey Square.

  • Jasminder Singh Jesse

    What you are seeing on the screen is to mislead the Russians and the Trumps, only then they would be able to catch them with their hands in the cookie jar !

  • Jasminder Singh Jesse

    You are spinning the same narrative over and over again guys that it gets monotonous and quite frankly very tiring because it reaches the point where it becomes boring . As far as where Trump got his money and in what capacity he was while walking around whichever building is all really old news . I am a Malaysian and I learnt all the facts that you guys say you only found out recently and that is really a surprise for me cause I managed to joint most of the dots that I had a good idea of exactly what kind of animal the creep Trump was.

  • Joanne deMoura

    I love the acurate picture painted of exactly how every sneaky Putin peon operates from Bostons homeless community to the Whitehouse

  • doright man

    Trump is and always will be a con traitor and the killer of the constitution of the United States of America. Trump should be fired for doing Putin's work of killing Americans. By the inside. He's taking away everyone's rights and medical also food. And you think he's for you. He's killing us all. Trump is killing the constitution of the United States of America jail this traitorous POTUS now we the people have spoken

  • April Jones-Foston

    'The New York Times' .. KNEW there was "a open FBI investigation into trump and a foreign government" during the campaign and "didn't publish it" OMGOSH

  • Magnus Thor

    So presumably NT could b to blame for the mess today , y on earth didn't they publish that ? And y come up with that ridiculous substitute?

  • Sajad Ali Khan

    He is an insult to Orangutans everywhere. They don't lie and are not racist bigots either. He is just dogs orange turd in suit and makes just as much sense.

  • William Zabel

    The server in Trump tower is connected to the Alfa bank server. If Congress would have the fbi seize that, I can tell you that is stuff on there would send trump, family and many others to prison.

  • Oddvard Myrnes

    Ha ha ha. NSA knows everything. Just you wait. All the info will see the light. Where do you think this info comes from? A journalist? Give me a break….

  • Wanda Holt

    Do they actually pay her to go on and say all that stuff about Trump? It’s like wasted air and space. Who really cares?

  • TryingHardNotToScream

    Dexter Filkins.. [ made up cute name to post copy as military reporter in Iraq war..]
    We now are completely informed of what the suicide vests were composed of that Filkins reported like a bot ,…." The suicide bomber blew himself up…" Filkins began 100 articles that way, but Hollywood is now informing us all over , …..that Filkins phrase was certainly a fib.
    Nick Cage film " Next" tells us [ man woman child and watching pets ] that the vests were made from disassembled Claymore land mines, and remotely triggered by cell phone.
    Veteran shill for Mossad perhaps,…..Journalist…hardly…

  • Bruce Perry

    Your road scholar is demonic ,she must have all you demonic followers drooling, HaHa I feel sorry for all of you ,you are so wrong and I predict you will find out very soon that Trump is on the up-and-up ,or maybe you're just mad he's putting one of your demonic billionaire buddies in jail now, the old guy that likes little girls like Billy Bob Clinton. Oh and creepy Joe! your side is so creepy I'm glad I was in the service for 10 years because it made me a better person, I'm glad I'm on the right and I'm a patriot very happy and proud about it, and I love this country, and if you only knew what the whole meaning of sanctuary cities represent and I don't think you do. I don't sit around and Hate!
    GET A LIFE πŸ‡±πŸ‡·πŸ‡±πŸ‡·βš½οΈβš½οΈ

    Thank you Rachel Maddow.πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Just ask those who voted for Trump how Russians influences their choice. Then you know everything about the collision…Why no one does such an easy step?..πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

  • Glenice Stanley

    I cant stomach this woman, she literally makes me sick to hear her rambling. I pray our great President Donald Trump will sue her and many others for defamation of character!

  • Ralecus

    3 years later and this is starting to finally re-surface. If I remember right, Trump argued that is was regular DNS server traffic, and there was no e-mail traffic. Regular DNS traffic? That's like saying you have regular water. And we set up a DNS server that was frequently looked up by only two entities, but no e-mails were trafficked? Metaphor Please…"Trump set-up a hotel. Hotels are meant to have multiple guests staying in them. The front desk log listed that only two people ever visited that hotel and one was a Russian Banker who was visiting very often. When questioned about it, the Russian banker stated he'd never been to that hotel. The next day the hotel was closed but the Russian Banker kept arriving day after day. Then one day the Russian Banker went to a different hotel that Trump had just set-up. Trump says it's regular traffic for a hotel and nobody ever stayed in either of those hotels. Now do you get it you stupid Congress? Your 5G hearing was a joke. You start off by saying you don't understand it and can't learn it, then you say it's our biggest national security threat. They tell you everything is safe. You ask how do you know it's safe? And they respond "We have built the best and biggest Firewall, a perfect, impenetrable Firewall. And Mexico paid for it. And that was good enough for our "Tech-Savvy Leaders." Now let's not be fooled here, this is the Server trump is looking for. If his puppets are saying Trump was referring to the DNC Server in that phone call that's not a letter, then that's definitely not the server Trump was referring to. And a rich Ukranian has the server? Could that be Mikhail Fridman, the founder of Alpha Bank? The DNC server doesn't even exist but this Alpha Bank server does. Trump needs that Alpha Bank Server, and they are holding that over his head which isn't blackmail because they didn't say blackmail.
