Heads turned across the political world as the crew of MSNBC’s Morning Joe blasted Barack Obama for his statements regarding the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
The left leaning MSNBC has been considered by critics as not so much a news network but more of a propaganda mouthpiece for the Obama regime.
So the words used by the network’s anchors shocked observers.
Former Republican Congressman Joe Scarborough kicked off the verbal torching by tearing into Obama for “rigging” the investigation.
Scarborough’s response was in reference to Obama declaring that Hillary had in no way jeopardized national security and that he was not applying pressure of any kind to the FBI.
The Washington Free Beacon reports on Scarborough’s reaction:
“Can you guys believe what you just heard?” co-host Joe Scarborough asked the panel with a bewildered look on his face after playing clips from the Obama interview. “He said he wasn’t going to talk to the attorney general about the pending investigation, but he just did, as he did back in October when he said, ‘No national security issues here. Nothing to see, move along.’’
Scarborough referenced a New York Times article from October in which FBI agents complained that the president should let them conduct their investigation before drawing conclusions about its outcome before they finish.
“And he just did it again!” Scarborough exclaimed. “And then in the same interview [he] said, ‘I’m not talking to my attorney general about it.’ Talk about a rigged process.”
American Patriot Daily has reported on the Obama regime’s secret plan to stall criminal charges against Hillary.
During a Today Show interview, Hillary seemed to let on that she had inside information about the end result of the investigation.
Perhaps Obama’s interview is just another piece of the puzzle revealing what is really going on.
Many experts believe he is poisoning the well by publicly commenting on the scandal, which is what Scarborough was alluding to.
Obama’s remarks don’t just affect Hillary Clinton’s legal future, they play a pivotal role in the Democratic primary.
With Bernie Sanders’ win in the Wyoming caucuses, he has now defeated Hillary Clinton in seven straight contests, and eight of the last nine.
And though Obama has middling approval numbers with the American people, he is still overwhelmingly popular with Democrats.
Obama flatly stating Hillary is in no legal jeopardy could swing voters on the fence.
Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski, panelist Mark Halperin of Bloomberg and commentator Nicole Wallace, pounced on these remarks.
The Free Beacon also reports:
“Campaigning for Hillary, may as well endorse her,” co-host Mika Brzezinski said.
“If I were a Bernie Sanders supporter, I would not appreciate the president of the United States … [weighing] in on [Clinton’s side] on national television,” Bloomberg’s Jon Heilemann added.
Political commentator Nicolle Wallace said, “it certainly felt like someone putting their finger on the scale for someone for whom the investigation has not been wrapped up.”
MSNBC can usually be counted on to justify all the scandals and failures of the Obama regime.
But for the entire network news panel to slam Obama for his remarks on the FBI investigation means he crossed the line in a major way.
