MSNBC host Chris Matthews has admitted there is no evidence that President Trump colluded with the Russians.
Matthews said that the accusations against Trump “came apart” following the testimony of James Comey.
Matthews has long been a critic of the President, and it must have been difficult for him to acknowledge that one of the key story lines on MSNBC over the past six months has just fallen apart.
The Washington Times reported the comments Matthews made on air.
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,” Matthews said on MSNBC, following the testimony.
And yet what came apart this morning was that theory, Matthews said, listing two reasons why. First, he said Comey revealed that “Flynn wasn’t central to the Russian investigation,” and secondly, he said that kills the idea that Flynn might have been in a position to testify against Trump.
And if that’s not the case, where’s the there-there?
Now, if only MSNBC would apologize to the American public for misleading them for the past six months, the world would be looking good. But, don’t hold your breath.
