Former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee. But after tons of hype, many liberals were disappointed that there was no smoking gun. Liberal MSNBC commentator Chris Matthews admitted that the Trump-Russia collusion theory “came apart” with Comey testimony.
“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?” Matthews said.
