  1. Corey Lewandowski spent 20 hours of his time willingly for questioning by Robert Mueller and his team. The Mueller report was completed weeks ago. The Democrats were going to accept the findings of that report.
    They didn't like the outcome of the conclusion so "fake" impeachment proceedings are being conducted using data from the Mueller report. They are wasting time hashing over the same crap.
    Move on and start working on matters that are important to the American people.

  2. It is so very sad MSNBC has to spread propaganda fed to them by the elites that own them and Dems. Their Fake news is what is hurting this country. I believe all of you should be tried for treason for the many lies you spread every day.

  3. Thats the pot calling the kettle black.Obama admittingly a kenyan traitor put in with election fraud was rolling treason and many illegal laws created against the constitution.Sad the justice department and alphabet boys are dirty also.We need military tribunals and hangings.So many sheep here brainwashed by liberal"education"

  4. Its time to drain the established swamp and President Trump is doing a marvelous job. Unemployment is down our economy is in recovery from debt, and our military is once again respected globally. The mismanagement of the Obama administration gave billions of dollars to Iran and other sworn enemies of our country. God has answered our prayers and Trump will win again in 2020 because most decent law abiding citizens will vote for him again that are fed up with the crooked Democrats, Obamas and Clintons and even established Republicans who have done absolutely nothing for our country.

  5. coming from the king of Lies that's quite a comment. Speaking of Life how's everything going PMSNBC. leading the way to last place you guys are doing great

  6. MSNBC Jerry Springer liberal news fake fake fake they banned CNN in other countries why can't we band MSNBC and CNN in America

  7. She's lying
    We didn't knew Obama drop drones until like a month, but who knows secret wars has boiling for 8 years & Obama (administration) never stopped or prevented Ebola it increased in North East Africa and of East Africa.
    Bush is phony, Obama is liar that got a second term because white people and guilt so they take Obama as a Token and felt sorry for him because he's black "supposedly".

  8. Remember the days when America had real patriots in the room, a potus who could use big words, keep a conversation on track, speak to the interests of your nation, not attack people, the press, or be BFF with Putin, Rocket man or the Saudis….close to 1000 days ago, it used to be like that. Samantha exudes common sense, and has the experience to back up her views….Now, picture Kelly Anne, or Sarah Sanders, and the state the USA is in today…A shambles, diving further down the rabbit hole..no end in sight. how that eagle has fallen.

  9. How can a country that has highly educated populace vote for trump????. Even if most of his supporters are racist atleast you can vote in an educated white man rather than the buffoon in the whitehouse today.

  10. Obama admin LIED and said there was no spying or unmasking– Susan Rice went on TV and LIED about it. Now, they say "yeah, we were spying but we had a good reason." Absolute BS.

  11. Powers is in deep with the Deep State…..only propaganda spews from her lips…."Obama's U.N. Ambassador"..only discredits her completely….Treason trials are coming!

  12. Seriously, who, amongst the Republicans in Congress, would trust Donald Trump to make an informed and strategic decision in the interests of the United States in the case of an impending security threat? And would any of them send their own children off to war under his direction? No, they’ll send yours.

  13. Montage of Obama saying Americans can keep their doctors current healthcare plan… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44kyHOPEZV8

  14. Samantha powers behind the massive unmasking of American citizens and she got away with it,if anybody in trump adminastration did that they would be in jail.

  15. Obama??? The father of all liars? Next they'll be bring up the virtues of Hillary…HAHA! Now I know how the Jews that were trapped in Germany felt…when all they heard was propaganda…the left is sick beyond cure! MSNBC is not the biggest joke, (CNN has the prize there) but they're working toward it!

  16. Translation: HRC was supposed to deliver the USA to the world, the NWO, and the globalist elitists and Trump got in the way of that. He threatened us in our endeavors to end the USA.

  17. Obama was a disaster because he excused moronic behavior in his most moronic supporters. A cult of personality is bad, especially when the members are masquerading as objective journalists.

  18. So the American military is the mercenaries for hire for Saudi Arabia. But doesn't trump hate Muslims? Why should our American Heroes go to war for them? For OIL? Why should we trade our BLOOD for oil ??? We need to find & use alternative fuel sources.

  19. tRump has made the world unsafe, because he has no foreign policy, just tear apart anything with Obama's name on it. tRump is a sick sick man

  20. Now facts matter .Obama in fact choses during the his still ongoing triple meltdowns give 1 nukes to chilli in support immediately .usa had new mox nuclear fuel installed in reactor # 2 that blew sky high. Nasa was very inclined to and later did fabricate electronics for magnetically controlled magnetic bearings for my patent the automatic feathering flatblade radial windmills that eliminate friction .conservation of angular momentum allows my design only not leonardo to close and open 100%
    Insanity simontanisly then nasa pulled frictionless bearings
    accesss in favor oil and nuclear power .instead of wind . That is where we as humanity is

  21. We are having People who are supposed to be above an opinionated fool without reason behave like the fools. The President is not supposed to use the illiterates who may be intelligent enough to explain their own life stories but cannot interpret Someone else's life story. This is why the highly educated are supposed to be chosen to decipher through all these People's BS. If the Judiciary Committee, Congress, Court, California Governor, and President are on the same level of the illiterates. That explains why there has not been an educated resolution. Illiterates do not come up with resolutions. They come up with excuses to avoid prosecutions or showing proof. There is not too many People who does not know the difference. If the overseers were not on the same level as the illiterates. How can there be no resolution in an investigation in which only one Person has facts. Me. It was totally fine when John and Laura Halliday was the only ones to talk to room 104 and room 109 at the Renee C. Davidson Court without me and I never got to talk. The second I spoke at least in front of John and Laura Halliday's faces. I'm accused of being the only one talking on the face to face video. John and Laura Halliday started the talking out of my presence. Everyone was trying to steal from me and did not have one concern when I was not presence. The Court, Clerk, Sheriff, Police, DA, and FBI listened to the Halliday's, Finley's, and Avila's lies over and over again without any evidence or me saying a word. How can a prejudice, discriminatory jerk convince the Judiciary Committee, the President, Governor, and DOJ's that I cannot talk on the video to ask questions about this favor that the Halliday's, Finley's, and Avila's were given at 1225 Fallon in Oakland at a wrong jurisdiction Court without me. Why is No One saying why were John and Laura Halliday, the Finley's, and the Avila's allowed to create the talk and Summons without completing work and providing receipts to the Court and Hearing Officer. I should not be questioned of talking on the video. I was not seen preventing the Halliday's from talking on he video. There were plenty of pauses where Laura Halliday could have stated whatever she wanted. Like saying who are you if I was lying. Why are you here if I was lying. Not what is your phone number and that she did not tell Latonya and Lincoln Finley to come on the property. Yes the DOJ has allowed Someone to erase the part of my video that says Laura Halliday did not want the Finley's to be on the premises. Why have these People not been arrested. They have been caught repeatedly by me fairly. Every lying move that they make. I'm going to be there to get them arrested for ongoing harassment towards me when I was minding my own Business.

  22. Everyone is laughing at Trump., is very sad!! Is almost like he wants to be impeach. We have a clown as the United States president, I still don’t understand what when wrong?

  23. Wait till people find out those Billons of dollars of cash on skids Obama sent Iran paid for those Drones that Hit Saudis Oil Rigs

  24. Again…How did we stoop down so low as to elect such an incompetent and lying person. Trump supporters, and they are many, must be either blind and deaf or made of the same material as their idol! Listening to mSamantha was like getting a bowl of fresh air!

  25. Trump lies under national security ok, what about the spying against your allies during your tenure madam. Hypocritical indeed if you think you are better than others. Let's learn to find solutions other than criticising others and thinking you are better, who knows maybe you did even much than others because yours (scandals)are kept secret.

  26. And name 5 things you achieved madam, I want to from Africa. We thought Africa will benefit from America interms of trade since Obama was a President but none at all. And how do you his administration does not brief? Let administration do there job, you did yours and failed period.

  27. Power and Obama worked well together in UN to making America purposeless , meaningless really …US was not a force for anything in the World …" just get along and do what your told"…But don't leave out Clinton who did get a lot of people killed on her own ..Talk about diplomacy !!!

  29. Why do republicans seem to want to destroy America ? Everything that the republicans always seem to be doing is giving the rich more and more and leaving the not as well off to suffer in the gutter. In my lifetime I have not seen or experienced where they have seen to it that the rich add to their wealth and try to uplift those without. That has the America I have been told through out my life was the America I was to grow up in and has never even been presented except for the Democrats trying to help the poor and republicans seem to hate it.

  30. Remember that when Obama came to office that Dubya had squandered any foreign policy goodwill the US had left. Obama rebuilt that international trust, against all odds. Powers epitomises the people that Obama bought to the table…. As an aussie, we miss the stabiity of Obama. The current Fool in Office is just that…

  31.

  33. Samantha is well educated, but MBS, Mohamed Bone Saws, is well equipped
    with bone saws to make a little operation on the bone spurs of The Donald. So Trump finally can join the Military and in a strange coslition with
    Saudis and Israelis can attack Teheran.
    I prefer him to keep his fake bone spurs!

  34. The Saudi's bought all kinds of American weapons. let them use them for defense of their own country. not our problem. we just want their oil.

  35. I do not understand how this country believes it is their right to try to destroy our country. Im really sick of all the lies and constant fake news e.g.
    LGBTQQIPSTT is gender disorder, not something to be desired. And,
    Islam is not a religion. It is an oppressive supremacist intolerant political system. Its founder, Mohammed, was a warlord, polygamist, slaver. Lying (Taqiyya) is an integral part of that system.
    Ever wonder why people like Geo Soros take such pleasure in flooding our country with disgruntled people from around the world? Soros specializes is destroying economies so he can move in and buy it up on the cheap.
    Get real America!

  37. Obama must live in a miserable humiliated state. His worst nightmare
    plays itself out day after day, year after year, Trump. All of his
    policies have been dismantled and reversed, Trump is packing the courts,
    and he has been exposed for spying on a presidential candidate. His
    presidency has been entirely refuted, and all of his work went for
    naught.

  38. maybe someone needs to inform Obama that he is no one anymore and for ever. however it is to best of its interest to shut the F up and hide in his cave of darkness

  41. Verses Obama’s lies. Remember Benghazi. Or how about the secret meetings out of the country and alliances to shove Obamacare down the throats of Americans. It was nice of him to offer free medical to illegals and those with visas on the taxpayers dime though.
