  1. The litmus will be whether Trump really confronts Putin. I think more likely that it will go something like this. Putin is a great guy. I spoke with Putin and he said Russia didn’t interfere. I trust him and believe him. I like him he is a great guy.

    The fact that the Republicans aren’t showing any concerns confirms that they are happy to allow interference as long as it is to their political advantage,

  2. The hidden agenda behind Trump's "USA First" is the fact that he is repaying Putin for helping in his election and to fulfil Putin wish is to break up NATO and Europe. It is possible that both NATO and EU is biting the bait.

  3. Brennan is a TRUMP Hater so what he says is irrelevant because Trump fired him and Brennan is behind most anti Trump stories 😱

  4. A private TrumpPutin meeting were everything is complete secret… nothing strange… business as usual…lol right??

  5. I suppose if anyone would know about interfering in foreign elections it would be this guy. He won't tell you that Chuck. And you ain't gonna ask him.

  6. "…we didn't do it…" (Brennan) "I understand that. " (Todd). The exchange after Todd brings up the Panama Papers. Oh, the former head of the CIA says "we didn't do it"? Must be true. Great job Chuck.

  7. I wish this man was president trump is a traitor to the USA never pee on underage girls it’s wrong and illegal and especially never do it across the street from Putin’s office

  8. Brennan deep state traitor as everyone knows.. What did Obama do? Oh right. No link to TRUMP!! Clinton criminal clan lost for many reasons. People like Brennan need to go away…he likes Mecca.

  9. Russia didn't change votes and didn't collude with Donald Trump. Obama didn't do a thing to stop this. Brennan knew it all.

  10. wake up MSNBC!
    There are more sophisticated ways to change vote counts than you are capable of imagining. Obviously since you don't mention it. There is a way to use the software to subtly change the votes and the larger the precinct the more dangerous the change.

  11. BRENNAN IS A TRAITOR AND SHOULD FACE THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONSEQUENCES.
    HE IS REVEALING CONFIDENTIAL INFO RIGHT NOW.

  12. Russians didn't put Trump in office, COMEY DID when he reopened the email investigation. Stop blaming Russians. AMERICANS…not RUSSIANS voted for Trump?

  13. Trump will not change. Trump will not push Putin about this.

    He said it himself. He doesn't know. He didn't even thought about it.

    WTF Trump? There are criminals attacking America.

  14. Brennan is a professional liar like all Intel operatives. Seth Rich stole the data not Russians and Seth Rich gave data to Wikileaks. Rich is now dead and CNN won’t mention him nor will they mention the contents of those stolen emails. Brennan is going to end up in prison along with Clinton, Comey and the rest of the slimy traitors who started this false Russia narrative to excuse Clinton’s dismal defeat and to overthrow the will of the people.

  15. Mueller's team is closing in methodically like any good investigator. This isn't a witch hunt. It is a thorough, well-directed and focused investigation.

  16. Wow Chuck Todd actually asked good questions. He managed to go beyond the superficial. There is hope for him yet. Imagine if Russert were still running the show!

  17. So glad this commie POS Brennan doesnt have any more power, and he can only go on fake news networks to pout and cry.

  18. Brennan my thought is: are the Russians technology so sophisticated that our intelligence community could prevent this? Is our people not capable of winning this battle?

  19. We indict. But we can not show you why! So…how does the public know the result was based on facts? We don't!

  20. The Russian has been meddling all the time since Obama administration and even long before ever since before Boris Yeltsin introduced to us the very first appearance of Vladimir Putin. Why MSNBC did not say a single word about it till now ?

  21. Brennan is a low life corrupt “ex” employee of the United States. He has proven to have -0- credibility. He has broken laws Including, lying to Congress under oath. He is up to his eyeballs in the dirty dealings of the last administration and is desperate to deflect the stench onto Trump. The American people don’t believe a word that comes out of his evil mouth! Try harder.

  22. Hey Brennan, where were you during the false flag of 911..eh?
    The guilty always come crawling out from under their rocks to support their marginalized opinion.
    FAKE NEWS from the CIA/MSNBC marxist

  23. Brennan will be brought to justice soon for his part on the coup d'etat against our president. Remember, there are 40,000+ sealed indictments waiting for prosecution. Think John Huber and military tribunals. WWG1WGA

  24. Brennan voted for a Communist for President but Obama nominated him for the top job at the CIA anyway. You can't make this crazy stuff up. But, he knows the exact names of the perps. Yes, Brennan knows it all! What a guy!

  25. RUSSIA TROLLING TRUMP in NEW VIDEO: EMIN – Got Me Good (Official Video)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=29&v=8cs4tKdiiI4

  26. Trumps Real Estate options in Moscow and Leningrad and Russian Investment in Trump Properties are more important than the the USA. America has just been SOLD..

  27. Mr. Brennan needs to come back to public service. He will be able to help clean up the mess, whose magnitude is only starting to be revealed to the public.

  28. You all are a partisan ignoramuses, blinded by your party affiliation to the autocratic mindset of FBI and DOJ authorities. You will rue day they come for you or yours and you did nothing to stop thier corrupt self serving activities now.

  29. Our president is willing to give the finger to the American people in order to embrace our enemy Putin. This is not what the American people's president should be doing!!!

  30. Trump just said that he wants these fine guys from the other side included in the examination of future attacks on our Election System, In other words we’re hiring the Poxes. All hail the traitorous POX NEWS in this zero sum game!

  31. John Brennan should be indicted and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for obstruction of justice. (MSNBC still FAKE NEWS)

  32. Brennan on the most wanted list of the American people. Why does he hide the fact that he is an active wahabi Muslim? Why is he considered to be one of the worst traitor to the American people of all time.

  33. Protest Putin. If Trump goes to Russia, protest. If Putin sets foot on American soil, protest. Trump is Putin's puppet. Treasonous Trump should go to jail. Trump is an illegitimate President because of Russian interface in the election, and Trump lost the popular vote. Trump is an un-American coward with fake heel spurs. Both Trump and Putin lie. Dump Trump. Ditch Mitch. Republicans are un-American! GOP stands for Greedy Opressive Preditors.

  34. Democrats want nuclear war with Russia – all this talk tells me Putin is going to arm up soon America will be gone in 30 minutes

  35. Mr. Brennan, Do you remember that meeting where you and Comey asked Obama how you were to proceed with the illegal investigations that you and Comey initiated at his request? You know, the one where Ms. Rice and Yeats were present? Do you suppose that perhaps there is an actual recording of that meeting? Surely you knew that everything that happens in the White House is recorded on multiple devices, some you knew about. Let me bottom line this for you as you already have the facts, if you manage to stay out of jail when the evidence is declassified I'll be surprised. Surely you understand that they will never indict Obama, probably will never reopen the Hillary thing, but most certainly will be needing a Judas goat — Guess what? Two Judas goats are better than one… Comey is going to be in the cell next to yours.

  36. Children, smoke and mirrors, smoke and mirrors. Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain. You never did before, don't start now. CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of the fake news have had you duped for your entire life so whatever you do, don't take the red pill. You might wake up, figure out the game and become "woke". Meh, what am I worried about, you are watching this drivel and believing it …

    Has your party condoned, nay embraced criminal behavior on the part of it's front runners? #walkaway Does your party give you money but never offer you equality? #walkaway Do you have a scary feeling you might have been backing evil people for a very long time? #walkaway Just #walkaway …

  37. John Brennen is a professional liar for the CIA before, during and now after his membership in the CIA so anything he has to say is about as believable as information coming from the George soros liberal media propaganda machines that he is now on in this video. We have a question for Mr. Brennen:

    John Brennen, do you really think you are untouchable? Your name has been on a list for a while now, the kind of list you don't want to be on. Even if you were still directly connected to the CIA, they would not be able to pull you off the list and symmetrically speaking, your place in line is approaching. You need to get your personal affairs in order… .. ..

  38.

  39. Why can't I believe anything Brennan says. He sure enjoys putting down My President. And why does he talk to MSNBC and not FOX? He must be a Liberal! Oh! that's why I can't believe him!

  40. Madaline Albright quoting, Benito Mussolini, "if you pluck a chicken one feather at a time, people don’t notice. We are n trouble, we sure arent out protesting Trumps treason in droves every day. We culd stop this, we aren't.

  41. Let's see… Who would I trust? Mueller, Page, Comey, Rosenstein, Strzok, Brennan, McCabe, MSNBC, CNN, Hillary, Obama or Vladimir Putin? They are ALL a bunch of lying snakes!

  43. John Brennan lol don't you realise he is dirt …I guess you guy's have never heard of the secret societies ..'Bohemian Grove anyone?? lol liberals

  44. You would have thought Hillary being accused of ' Crimes against children' would be major news! (you can varify that on the US gov court site) but of course the fake media won't want you to know about that would they…I guess it is only those that can think and research for themselves that know better. Of course people watching this are not the sort of people that do any research themselves…the people watching this prefer to have their opinions (lies) feed to them #sad little sheep

  45. Let’s take this out in the streets of America And launch protests in every major US cities Until the Congressional supporters of President Treasonous .Impeach this Liar

  46. There were SO many more things Dir Brennan could say…why did this segment end???? This is one of the most knowledgeable people on this topic and he isn't burdened by over-abundance of caution as are others. This was fascinating. More!!!

  47. Brennan is a RUSSIAN SPY How cool is that, No wonder he wanted President Trump not to find out,…

  48. The Trump Truth: a STENOGRAPHER IS NEEDED FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP AT ALL TIMES, one who WON'T be able to be fired, or resign, nor quit.
