We know there is an organized effort to sink the Trump administration, and Matt Lauer can hardly contain his excitement at any opportunity to contribute to the cause.
Newsbusters has the latest:
During an interview with Senator John McCain on Thursday’s NBC Today, co-host Matt Lauer could not contain his enthusiasm for the idea that the politically-charged congressional investigation into supposed ties between the Trump campaign and Russia could somehow bring down Donald Trump’s months-long presidency: “Do you think that when all of those shoes drop, that they may mortally wound this young administration?”
The exchange began with Lauer advancing the Democratic Party agenda by blasting Republican House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes for daring to publicly reveal that the then-President-elect or his campaign associates had been caught up in “incidental” and “inappropriate” surveillance during the transition: “Can you explain any reason why Chairman Nunes would have done what he did yesterday?…instead of discussing those reports with members of his own Intelligence Committee and the ranking Democratic member, go right to the press and right to the White House?”
And here’s more of the exchange:
MATT LAUER: We are joined now by Republican Senator John McCain. Senator, nice to see you. Good morning.
SEN. JOHN MCCAIN [R-ARIZONA]: Good morning.
LAUER: You know Washington, you know the role of oversight that Congress has. Can you explain any reason why Chairman Nunes would have done what he did yesterday? Say, “I’ve seen reports from the intelligence community on this subject,” and instead of discussing those reports with members of his own Intelligence Committee and the ranking Democratic member, go right to the press and right to the White House?
LAUER: You heard what Adam Schiff said. He said, “The Chairman will need to decide whether he’s the chairman of an independent investigation into conduct or he’s going to be a surrogate to the White House, because he cannot do both.” Has Chairman Nunes so damaged the credibility of the Intelligence Committee that they should just shut down that investigation?
When will these dopes give up?
