The Onion on Rachel Maddow

Comments

No doubt about it. The Russia investigation isn't done and other than a couple of findings, indictments, etc, it has just been one big witch hunt. Sean Hannity and Fox/Trump "News" state daily whether something has happened or not that there was "No collusion!" and "Trump vindicated!" so there must be nothing to it.

 

The full list of known indictments and plea deals in Mueller’s probe

1) George Papadopoulos, former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, pleaded guilty in October to making false statements to the FBI.

2) Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security adviser, pleaded guilty in December to making false statements to the FBI.

3) Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign chair, was indicted in October in Washington, DC on charges of conspiracy, money laundering, false statements, and failure to disclose foreign assets — all related to his work for Ukrainian politicians before he joined the Trump campaign. He’s pleaded not guilty on all counts. Then, in February, Mueller filed a new case against him in Virginia, with tax, financial, and bank fraud charges.

4) Rick Gates, a former Trump campaign aide and Manafort’s longtime junior business partner, was indicted on similar charges to Manafort. But he has now agreed to a plea deal with Mueller’s team, pleading guilty to just one false statements charge and one conspiracy charge.

5-20) 13 Russian nationals and three Russian companies were indicted on conspiracy charges, with some also being accused of identity theft. The charges related to a Russian propaganda effort designed to interfere with the 2016 campaign. The companies involved are the Internet Research Agency, often described as a “Russian troll farm,” and two other companies that helped finance it. The Russian nationals indicted include 12 of the agency’s employees and its alleged financier, Yevgeny Prigozhin.

21) Richard Pinedo: This California man pleaded guilty to an identity theft charge in connection with the Russian indictments, and has agreed to cooperate with Mueller.

22) Alex van der Zwaan: This London lawyer pleaded guilty to making false statements to the FBI about his contacts with Rick Gates and another unnamed person based in Ukraine.

 

That's all just fake news but shows the lengths to which the mainstream media will go to promote lies. This is all fake news.

No shit. I don't watch shit from that moron. You read that? I don't watch any of the videos you post from channels like Jimmy Dore, Youtube Jesus, Seth Rogan (he's great, I see them on his channel), etc. Could you please stop posting endless videos from the same channels? Post a link to their channels and move on. I won't comment on those videos anymore. Good point.

Read an onion article? What are you retarded? Of course I read the Onion article - they produce top-of-the-line satire, whereas you frequently sound like Cathy Newman.

 

Could you also please stop rating videos you don't watch?

The video says that Maddow is the left's Sean Hannity & has become the most watched fake news show (surpassing even Hannity), with their final ratings coming by way of moving further to the right & just banging on about Russia 24/7

 

As for your list - none of that has any link to Trump colluding with the Russian government to help him with the election, or whatever you jokers are calling "Russian collusion" these days.

 

The Paul Manifort case comes close but the geography doesn't quite line up. Ukraine isn't Russia last time I checked. And please don't start with the "Ukraine was a Putin puppet state" stuff. There is only 1 Russian government & his involvement with Ukraine preceeded him working on Trump's 2016 election campaign.
