The MSNBC host said that Comey’s testimony pulled apart the theory that President Trump colluded with the Russians.
MSNBC host Chris Matthews said after former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony that the anti-Trump narrative that the president colluded with the Russian government to win the 2016 election “came apart.”
Matthews cited two portions of the testimony to back up his claim.
“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,'” Matthews recounted.
“Comey said that basically [former National Security Advisor Mike] Flynn wasn’t central to the investigation,” he added for the second point.
Critical to the collusion theory was that Flynn possessed damaging information on Trump and that this explained the president’s loyalty to his former National Security Adviser.
Now, Matthews argued, Comey’s testimony undercut that theory by removing Flynn from the collusion investigation. Instead, investigations into Flynn focused on other matters unrelated to the probe into Trump’s campaign, Comey testified.
