Sen. Joe Manchin reacts to CNN Russia report


AMBASSADOR. BACK TO YOU.>>Sandra: THANK YOU.>>Bill: HE IS LIVE NOW, DEMOCRATIC WEST VIRGINIA SENATOR JOE MANCHIN. GOOD MORNING. WHAT IS THE TRUTH BEHIND THE C.I.A. STORY?>>FIRST OF ALL — THAT PERSON’S IDENTITY AND THEIR SAFETY IS THE UTMOST IMPORTANCE TO ALL OF US. WE HAVE 17 INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES. I WAS ON THE INTEL COMMITTEE AND UNBELIEVABLE IN THAT YOUR DEDICATION TO THIS GREAT COUNTRY KEEPING US SAFE AND FREE. WITH THAT WE DEPEND ON THE INTEL WE GET AND NOW HAVING THE SITUATION TO WHERE IT COULD BE COMPROMISED AND NOT GETTING THE INTEL THAT’S NEEDED TO KEEP THE RUSSIANS AT BAY AND ELECTIONS OPEN AND FREE IS VERY CONCERNING TO ME.>>Bill: IT UNFOLDED IN LATE 2016. WHAT WAS THE OBAMA TEAM DOING ABOUT IT? IF THEY KNEW THEIR INFORMANT IN RUSSIA HAD INFORMATION THAT PUTIN WAS TRYING TO MEDDLE IN THE ELECTION AND PULL HIM OUT OF RUSSIA TO PROTECT HIM AND HIS LIFE FOR HIS OWN SAFETY WHAT WAS THE ADMINISTRATION DOING TO KEEP THE ELECTION SAFE.>>THE ONLY THING I CAN SAY ABOUT THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. IF THEY HAD INFORMATION AND KNEW ALL 17 INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES WERE CONCURRING THAT RUSSIA WAS INVOLVED AND THEY HAD THAT INFORMATION BECAUSE OF THE PERSON WE HAD THAT WAS HELPING AND THERE WAS NO DISPUTE, THEY SHOULD HAVE ACTED AND ACTED QUICK AND BASICALLY COME OUT PUBLICLY WITH WHAT WAS GOING ON AND NOT WAIT UNTIL AFTERWARDS. IT WAS A HORRIBLE MISTAKE AND WE’RE PAYING THAT PRICE RIGHT NOW. BASICALLY IT MAKES CONSTERNATION WITH THE ENTIRE INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES, THE MOST DEDICATED HUMAN BEINGS I HAVE EVER MET. IT’S A HORRIBLE SITUATION. TO PLAY IT OUT INTO THE PRESS. THE PEOPLE MAKING SACRIFICES TO KEEP US SAFE IS NOT RIGHT.>>JOHN BRENNAN WE’LL HEAR FROM TO FIGURE OUT AN ANSWER. GUN LEGISLATION. YOU MET WITH THE PRESIDENT LAST WEEK AND CAME OUT OF THAT MEETING WITH AN OPTIMISTIC TONE.>>I’M ALWAYS OPTIMISTIC, BILL. WE’RE STILL TALKING. THE PRESIDENT WAS ENGAGED FOR OVER A HALF HOUR AND LISTENING TO HIS STAFF AND HE WAS LISTENING TO ME, EXPLAINED WHAT WE HAVE ALWAYS SAID THE 2013 BILL I DRAFTED BACK THEN WITH MY PARTNER WAS VERY CLEAR WE WERE NOT INFRINGING ON ANY LAW ABIDING GUN OWNER’S RIGHTS. THEY WON’T SELL A GUN TO A STRANGER OR SOMEONE MENTALLY INSANE AND SOMEONE WHO IS NOT A RESPONSIBLE CITIZEN. BUT WHEN WE GO TO COMMERCIAL TRANSACTION WE DON’T KNOW WHO THOSE PEOPLE ARE. OVER 80% OF THE PEOPLE SUPPORT — GUN OWNERS SUPPORT THAT WHAT WE’RE DOING IS TO MAKE SURE THAT ALL GUN PURCHASES DURING COMMERCIAL TRANSACTIONS ARE BACKGROUND CHECKED. I TOLD PRESIDENT TRUMP, THERE IS NOT A PERSON I KNOW IN AMERICA THAT WILL INFRINGE ON THEIR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS OR TAKE THEIR GUNS AWAY OR ALLOW A REGISTRY. WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT. WITHOUT HIS SUPPORT I DON’T THINK ANYTHING CAN BE DONE.>>Bill: SENATE REPUBLICANS WANT TO KNOW WHAT THE WHITE HOUSE WILL SUPPORT AS WELL. THOSE IN D.C. BELIEVE THIS CONVERSATION IS DISINGENUOUS. LIZ CHENEY IS ONE OF THEM. SHE SAID THIS.>>I HAVE WATCHED THE DEMOCRATS TIME AND TIME AGAIN PLAY POLITICAL GAMES WITH THESE ISSUES. USE THE HORRIFIC TRAGEDIES THAT WE SEE FOR THEIR OWN POLITICAL PURPOSES WITH NO REGARD TO AMERICA’S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. THE PRESIDENT, MR. MCCONNELL, MCCARTHY AND ALL OF US IN THE HOUSE IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WON’T DO EVERYTHING THAT WILL VIOLATE AMERICAN’S CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.>>Bill: WHAT YOUR IDEAS WILL DO TO STOP THE KILLERS FROM DAYTON, OHIO AND EL PASO, TEXAS. WOULD IT DO THAT?>>MINE, BILL?>>Bill: YES.>>EVERYTHING THAT WE’RE DOING HERE AS FAR AS THE MENTALLY ILL, THE PRESIDENT CAN PUT A PIECE OF LEGISLATION TOGETHER, USING WHAT WE HAVE DONE ALREADY NOT INFRINGING. I RESPECTFULLY DISAGREE WITH LYNN ON THAT. NO WAY WE’RE INFRINGING ON CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS. WE’RE PROTECTING THE SECOND AMENDMENT BUT PROTECT AMERICA ALSO. SHOULD WE IDENTIFY PEOPLE STRAW PURCHASES BUYING ILLEGALLY FROM SOMEONE WHO HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET A BACKGROUND CHECK APPROVED? ARE WE ALLOWING SOMEONE MENTALLY INCOMPETENT OR HAVING PROBLEMS TO BE IDENTIFIED SO WE CAN PROTECT THEM AND SOCIETY AS A WHOLE AND THEIR OWN FAMILIES? THERE ARE SOME COMMON SENSE THINGS BIPARTISAN WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO DO. WE AREN’T ABLE TO HAVE A CONCERTED CONVERSATION ON THAT OR INTELLIGENT CONVERSATION. IT IS BASED ON WHERE IS YOUR BASE, WHO WILL LOSE WHAT VOTES. I CAN ASSURE YOU THE BILL WE PUT TOGETHER HAS OVER 85% APPROVAL. THAT’S WITH GUN OWNERS AND EVERYONE ELSE SAYING IF YOU GO TO A COMMERCIAL TRANSACTION, GUN SHOW ON THE INTERNET, DON’T YOU THINK YOU OUGHT TO KNOW WHO WANTS TO BUY THAT GUN AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE AND WHAT THEIR BACKGROUND IS? THAT’S ALL WE’RE TALKING ABOUT. NO FAMILY CAN BE INFRINGED UPON. FAMILY TRANSFERS ARE ALL PROTECTED. INDIVIDUAL TRANSFERS ARE PROTECTED. COMMERCIAL TRANSACTIONS SHOULD HAVE BACKGROUND CHECKS.>>Bill: THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME.

  1. The Obama administration was a contributing factor to every problem President Trump is trying to correct.
    They actively generated through inaction the 'Russian Collusion' debacle, the waste of $20,000,000 and two years to prove the innocence of President, and that the Democrats are culpable.

  2. Disgusting that this Democrat would advocate protecting Americans, when they won't protect us from illegal immigrants.

  3. Joe Manchin is the ONLY Democrat I like. He is not a clown, he doesn't show hatred of Trump, he will distance himself from the far left lunatics, and he votes with Trump. That's how all politicians should act whether their Republican or Democrat and respect our President. Trump 2020.

  4. CNN fabricates it’s news stories from the ground up, and their brainwashed minion have been drooling all over themselves waiting for Don Jr’s arrest on the White House lawn.

  5. I remember hearing when Trump was running for President , he had gotten a phone call from Putin warning him that someone in Russia was tampering with the election , but it was not in his favor , it was in Hillary's favor . . This has been verified that from 2.6 million to 10.4 million votes were falsely added in favor of Hillary Clinton . Sounds like Russian collusion to me ! That thing the democrats were accusing Trump of doing , hmmm ?

  6. Joe knows us West Virginians will run a train on him and his family if he tries anything stupid. That's a real issue he should keep in mind. He's not horrible, but I still want him out of my state.

  7. Obama put these operatives in danger to neutralize Trump and the threat he posed to his lawless administration, and his joke of a legacy.

  8. Growing up in WV, wise people used to tell me you will be judged by the company you keep. Leave the Democratic party and help us West Virginians as a Reasonable party representative.

  9. I used to be annoyed with the Left, but now I'm totally amused, it's the LEFTY LOONY TUNES and they're not even on drugs! New medical code was added this year it's under Trump Derange Syndrome/TDS,

  10. I hope Fox news is reporting that Trump is taking tax payers money to pay his businesses to make a profit. He is also stealing Military money to pay for the wall. If Fox news is not reporting this, then they are doing you people a disservice.

  11. News flash senator Manchin, there’s not a sportsman’s show, gun show, gun store or online store that doesn’t already comply with already existing background checks; so your hyperbolic and bs background check bill is simple political grandstanding with the voters. Pathetic!

  12. Horsein Obama KNEW, Clappers KNEW, Brennan KNEW Russia tried to meddle in American politics like all foreign Intelligences, but NEVER took Counter Intelligences actions but to BLAME then candidate Donald John Trump, when Ol'Mama Hellary Rodham Clinton LOST the Election.

  13. The relentless CNN attacks on your president is a disgrace, as a Canadian watching fro abroad I can only conclude that CNN is a paid propaganda tool for the Democratic party. Shame on the home of freedom and land of democracy to be high-jacked by the Clinton/Obama Mafia through control of MSM like CNN, MSNBC and biased papers like The New York Times and Washington Post.

  14. Dumb kid NJ. Taunting President and Well Known. 2 felonies. Min 8 years. NJ politicians swallow that. Viriginia Republicans ? should scorn ?? former Gov P.

  15. Do we listen to Joe Manchin solely because his last name is the stupidest way to spell mansion? Because I see no reason this fuckface should be allowed to talk to us.

  16. What Obama and administration doing? That's powerful question and speaks a lot about the abuse of power by Obama and his Comey agent's of FBI and also Brennan of CIA.

    Where is Brennan of CIA, Ohr? After FBI fraud and corrupt Mueller report, now surfaces CNN corruption links with Russia under CIA. What's Brennan doing inside Russia spy room's? Selling 🍌🍒?

    Pelosi want universal background check's. That's a way to push gun control very hard and effectively. What Pelosi model? Still Nancy Pelosi hold's her mic? Nancy first MUST CUT her mic before pushing for strict gun control. CUT OFF Nancy's mic.

  17. Trump is right……the media is the enemy of the people. CNN, Putin wants to know your source and he ain't playing with out. You better hire extras security.

  18. Manchin should have been speaker of the house
    He would atleast be a normal president
    He's the only good Democrat left
    Wish he was in the Republican party

  19. CNN is garbage news, and always has been. Remember in 1992 they were on a beach with lights and cameras televising a Military Operation in Somalia purposely endangering US Military Troops. Disgusting then and disgusting now.

  20. understand that ANYTHING to do with Russia will be exploited by Democrats!!! Even though Joe Manchin is probably the ONLY Democrat that cares somewhat about Legal Americans…

  21. No sensible, fair and logical American with an iota of patriotism watches CNN. I stopped years ago. It is an appalling cable network.

  22. Obama left US in a mess, but what did you expect, that blew mine letting that Jet filled with gold an hundred dollar bills go to Iran, it sucks

  23. Democrats are Mentally Ill.  Why join the military – Just fight in war for this country, and Democrats will have you defined Mentally Ill.  There goes your second Amendment Rights.

  24. There are 3000 American companies operating in Russia !
    JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs are in the top 3 deal makers in Russia !
    It's Russian collusion collision !
    lol 😂

  25. Maybe they should talk about security at locations before controls. We go through security at every concert we got to. Pockets emptied, wanded with metal detectors and nearby dressed security. Any place people gather should have clear visible security.

  26. Ohhh mmmmy! Every criminal in America is so frightened that laws affecting the innocent gun owners might be tougher.
    No Joe. They are in greater fear that I can protect myself.

  27. We already have a law for this the form used is transfer of firearm by unlicensed person it must be filled by everyone who is not an ffl and sells a firearm or its a felony

  28. the president has said we don't need foreign intelligence agents and we should not trust them. So what's the issue? stronger background checks will never be done by this administration no matter how many people are slaughtered. and rest assured more mass shootings will occur.

  29. Do not trust the democrats to any word from them regarding any sort of gun legislation! Their entire goal is to get rid of the 2nd amendment and disarm law abiding citizens knowing full well that criminals are not going to abide by any such gun control laws!

  30. It should concerned u after all it was / is Democrats thats doing all of the illegal corruption. As far as our second amendment rights you need to leave them alone cuz you don't even know what the laws are now.

  31. Democrats say protect American but they letting all of the illegal immigrants into our country. Democrats are letting these judges release illegal immigrant criminals murderers rapists back on our streets why don't they go after them instead of our rights

  32. NO GUN LEGISLATION will stop shootings.. More people are killed weekly in chitcago. Baltimore is just as bad.. But the DUMMYCRATS dont talk about black on black in Dummycrat ruled cities..

  33. Joe , you are the only democ-rat that seems somewhat sane , but you better move over to the republican party or face losing your seat. YOU are now with the party of nut cases and morons .Save you self respect and vote with Republicans or else

  34. This WV hick is lying out of the side of his mouth. They already have background checks for commercial gun sales. Its called NICKS, and apparently it dosent work. Another lie that 90% of the population is for stronger background checks.

  35. Why did he ask tell us what we should believe in the beginning? Tell us the facts and let us discern for ourselves. Talking to us like we’re uneducated and can’t figure it out. Treason is the term.

  36. Obummer didn't do sh** about it because he thought Hillary was going to win. If he would have stepped in.. he Not only would have interferred in Hillary winning but would have raised questions whether or not the outcome was rigged for Hillary.

  37. Obama's department of justice was investigating Hillary Clinton over Benghazi in 2014. Now how did they not know what was going on?

  38. Thanks FOX News for honest unbiased reporting . CNN once again exposed as liars and twisters of truth caught in the act. TRUMP 2020 !!
