The Thrill Is Gone: Chris Matthews Admits "There's No 'There' There" On Trump-Russia 'Collusion'

If you count yourself among the die-hard, disaffected Hillary supporters still holding out hope that President Trump will be impeached for conspiring with Russian spies to stage a coup in the United States, then you may want to sit down because earlier today one of your biggest cheerleaders just threw in the towel on that whole narrative.  Yes, MSNBC's very own Chris Matthews, the same man who confessed he "got a thrill up his leg" from simply watching Obama speak, admitted today that Comey's testimony pretty much confirmed that "there's no 'there' there" when it comes to Trump colluding with the Russians.

"The assumption of the critics of the President, of his pursuers, you might say, is that somewhere along the line in the last year is the President had something to do with colluding with the Russians … to affect the election in some way.  Some conversation he had with Michael Flynn or Pual Manafort or somewhere."


"And yet what came apart this morning was that theory in two regards...the President said, according to the written testimony of Mr. Comey, go ahead and get any satellites of my operation and nail them.  I'm with you on that..."


"And then also, Comey said that basically Flynn wasn't central to the Russian investigation."


"And I've always assumed that what Trump was afraid of was that he had said something to Flynn and Flynn could be flipped on that and Flynn would testify against the President that he'd had some conversation with Flynn in terms of dealing with the Russians affirmatively."


"And if that's not the case, where's the there-there?"


And when Chris Matthews throws in the towel on a liberal narrative, you know the gig is up. Oh, and by the way, this probably doesn't help your case either...

Burr: "Director Comey, did the President at any time ask you to stop the FBI investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. elections?"


Comey:  "Not to my understanding, no."


Burr:  "Did any individual working for this administration, including the Justice Department, ask you to stop the Russian investigation?"


Comey:  "No."

Adding insult to injury for bereft Hillary supporters, Comey did say an "obstruction of justice" was attempted... only not by Trump. Who then? This tweet provides a hint.

Don't buy this false surrender bullshit by Matthews.  Libs always pull this phony crap when they're cornered.  They roll over, say maybe they were wrong, but the next day they're back at it with a modified narrative basically amounting to the same goal by alternate means.Remember the short handfull of days after Trump won, the Dems (including Hillary and Obama) grudgingly admitted Trump won and that the election results were valid?  How long did that last before the whole 'Russia collusion' narrative was launched?  Three days?  Four, maybe?I'll take a $20 bet with anybody here that Matthews will have a story within 1 week in which he declares a "new, much more serious allegation that, if true, could prove 10x more damaging to the Trump administration than anything alleged in the Russia collusion investigation ever had a chance of becoming".  Anybody want to bet against me on this?  I'll take your money.

After the bombshell about Lynch telling Comey to drop the investigation in Hillary Clinton, if there is no investigation.........well, that pretty much confirms their is only one political party with two slightly different factions in the USA.<Wait, I don't need confirmation to know that's the truth.>
