  1. J. H says:

    LOOSERS liars.

  2. Joe Smith says:

    Comey is a snake I love how these clowns can put a spin on anything. He lied to Trump saying he isnt under investigation then he goes and records their conversation and tries to use it against him. What a joke and blady just cant see it.

  3. Elaine Koh says:

    Comey brought forth his memos only after he was fired. Why was that wrong? He was a private citizen by then. If he did not expose Trump's obstruction of justice for the sake of America and for his own wrongful dismissal, dictator Trump will rise in US and democracy in the free world of America will be exterminated eternally by Trump. At least Comey's memos that sparked off Mueller's investigation shed light on Trump's attempt to suppress democracy and eventually destroy it completely. Call a spade a spade. Trump tried to obstruct justice. This spade cannot be discarded or called any otherwise. Trump's commencement to shut down democracy and the free press with his presidency is visibly clear. Why should Comey not bring it to light to save America? The memos and special investigation report unfold the humongous amounts of bizarre truths of POTUS and the Trump Administration. How much dirt of so many people related to this administration surfaced from thence. The IG cannot give a totally clean report to Comey so as to please Trump and Barr? A politically right coward? Drill into the deep source and it all began with Trump's arrogant dismissal of FBI director who refused to do the president's wrong doing of killing an investigation into one of his aides that will spiral to more scary scouring of corrupt and unprecedented power intent.

  4. Jason Aaron says:

    America is one big soap opera. Corruption everywhere and the people at the top never get punished, and everyone in the media and political landscape and adamant supports are biased. Can even trust your own security departments. And then you have Europe who may have surpassed you… nothing will change.

  5. Agni Ban says:

    Mike Horowitz’s IG Report has been suspect in the past on the Andrew McCabe case and is suspect and shady now. He cannot be believed. After this regime changes, he should be independently investigated by a new regime as to the integrity of his process and report.

  6. Austin Giguere says:

    Robert Mueller is everything a FBI director should be James Comey is everything a FBI director shouldn't be. I promise you will never see Robert Mueller going around the country selling books acting like a political pundit on TV James Comey is a National Disgrace and will always be remembered as the worst FBI director this country ever saw.

  7. Austin Giguere says:

    It amazes me to see so many Democrats and MSNBC being a mouthpiece for corrupt intelligent officials Democrats used to be the Watch Dogs now that they are nothing but mouthpieces for the most corrupt dangerous people in America Untouchable for law enforcement officials.

  8. Richard Wright says:

    Whats going on the liberals are not calling for the full report

  9. Being Frank says:

    James Coney is the Robert Hanssen character in the 2007 movie titled "Breach".

  10. RIC shady says:

    There was no case here….. https://youtu.be/InQSQsAfHj8

  11. Baxter Powel says:

    Barr is the real traitor here!

  12. LaBambaC says:

    whistleblower protection against the prez? hah

  13. Barbara Roberts says:

    If it weren't for Comey the Mueller investigation would NOT have been done. Comey is a true hero and history will show this…what he did was the right thing to do. He testified to Congress that he had great concern what trump would do and how dangerous trump was…trump told Comey he had "tapes" so Comey let that info "out to his close friend" a "memo" that was NOT classified and that Comey actually "retracted" info from that memo he gave to his associate and lawyer.
    For trump and all the "conspiracy theorist' like Jim Jordan, Gaetz, Meadows, and many other Republicans actually tried to destroy Comey and MANY OTHER FBI and intelligence people instead of looking into all of trump's deceptions and lies he said and tweeted about and made about Comey, McCabe and many many others trump wanted to destroy because of their "speaking up and out" and he wanted to intimidate and scare them..good for you Comey…you did do the right thing and what IG said today was total garbage "spewed out" by trump demanding they do this…they know there is nothing illegal Comey did otherwise they would have prosecuted him..time they started looking into all of trump's corruption, lies and obstruction instead of trump's enemies he is trying to SILENCE!

  14. Richie Rich says:

    HE DID NOT BREAK THE LAW, Period! If he did, you can be sure that the 1% puppets installed by the traitorous criminal in the White House, would have done their masters bidding.

  15. jwerd32 says:

    Comey should be in jail. Liar and leaker. These two idiots will look stupid.

  18. Gabriela Suarez says:

    Comey should apologize to the American people …he thought he was above the law

  19. wandering spirit says:

    James Comey-The man who disgraced the FBI. Read page 60 of the iG Report.

  20. Kim Prendergast says:

    Comey a liar!! Stop trying to give him s free pass!!!

  21. Wanda Pease says:

    Trust the FBI IG? Does he have a job because of Trump? Would he have a job once this came off the front page if he had written anything different? Mr. Horowitz deserves trouble from this.

  22. Patty Donohue says:

    Chuck!!! You are getting worse at interviewing people who need to speak the majority of the time. YOU are not the person of interest. Your guest is the person of interest…the person WE want to hear from. For the most part…you need to shut up and get out of the way. Please.

  23. Esther Alintah says:

    FAKE news Msnbc

  24. Steven Roberts says:

    Lol!! They only showed the opening statement of the memo… And you dummys fell for it !!!.. Read the report yourself.. ..It states numeroues statues and codes broken..and suggest criminal charges be filed.. And this is just the beginning… Remember there is a fisa abuse investigation going on aswell.. Comey will be charged.. Criminally end of story..

  25. Eric O! says:

    Comey represents the reason why Liberals cannot be trusted in ANY arm of the US Government.

  26. gadgetman136 says:

    Leaking government information to the media is wrong. If its wrong for WikiLeaks it's wrong for Jake's Comey. Comey could have turned over his memos to Rod Rosenstein at DOJ. He needs to be held accountable.

  27. Pyroman / says:

    2:38 if he could of charged him he would of … If he charged him with these facts Comey would have a YUGH lawsuit worth millions and bill would just confirm he is Trump's eron boy … You can't just charge a case that's this high profile without iron soild charges … Also Comey may of had whistle blower protection if he did break the law

  28. R Duchateau says:

    Keep spinning you two hacks. This was written separately by the IG to show how unethical Comey was. No prosecution on this one. This is only the beginning for Comey. He will go down on the phony FISA warrants and the plot to frame Trump. He won’t be the only one. Can’t wait to hear the lies and spin from the liberal MSM

  29. laphotopix says:

    Wow.. reading these comments prove one thing… Liberal-Leftism is an incurable retrovirus! Bottom line, Comey broke the rule of law.. He's now disgraced and finished….. Good riddance!

  30. Bj D says:

    OMG what sophistry!!! Barr is probably holding back to get the slam-dunk case on FISA fraud. Even a wildly partisan DC jury can’t ignore his guilt. To listen/watch this utter BS!! Well… time wil show the truth. Equal justice for all. Otherwise it’s the second civil war… and forget about taking our guns!

  31. Dawn Markey says:

    Jim Commy is corrupt as they come. After being a witness as how he handled the Clinton " matter" says all you need to know about his integrity and love of country

  32. Driver Man says:

    The simple fact is that Trump — in his presidency and his aids and in his life before politics — has never put any value in facts or truth. Trump is far more interested in creating the reality he prefers — whether or not that comports with established facts. Let's remember that this is a man who impersonated a non-existent staffer in the Trump organization — John Barron! — to chat up gossip tabloids in New York City about his own love life. He can not distinguish between lies and the facts!! (truth) When are the intelligent people that watch fox are going to wake up and see this is NOT good for you or the American people!!! Hannity ,Ingraham and Carlson are not stupid. They have to see thru the lies?? Or do they have an alterative motive for there compliance??

  33. Sukhbir Sekhon says:

    Imagine if Comey had not done what he did. Imagine what trump and his fellow swampers would have got away with by now and in future. Thankfully trump gave himself away to an honest man who was prepared to put his country before a would be dictator like trump.

  36. Pj Mccarthy says:

    Wow MSNBC is just pathetic.

  37. will crow says:

    Comey is my homie. He's not getting prosecuted because he'll publicly address even MORE scandal and criminal activity.

  38. George Stack says:

    None so blind as he who will not see.

  39. Sam Dill says:

    America has ONE Political Party, The Rothschild/Bolshevik Party!

  40. Red Dead says:

    Imagine my shock

  41. Jane B says:

    Bill barr works for TRUMP not U.S.A

  42. Cherie Cullum says:

    Comey did not leak secret info. He broke no law. He is an Ameican hero. He got the Mueller investigation started

  43. Bucky Pinata says:

    So Comey broke the law, not just policy. Guess they didn't read the report

  44. Dia Atkin says:

    Hilarious still believe Comey read the report he was considered dangerous.

  45. Michelle Aldrich says:

    No American citizen has forgot all the lies that MSNBC has spewed to the American people Russia Russia Russia freaking stormy stormy stormy. Are economy is doing so much better under Trump’s administration than any Democrat ever in history. Good luck #WalkAway

  46. Montrail Campbell says:

    They cant prosecute Comey this is just to make it as if Comey is worse off than trump. He has broken no law! Im sure everyone knew it after his testimony the immediate next story was to try and prosecute him, in the news media.

  47. Helen Short says:

    So basically, despite all Trump's chest beating and vitriol, the investigation found that Comey did nothing wrong regarding his memos but they tried to make it sound like he did. Got it.

    Sounds like a version of Devin Nunes nothing burger.

  48. littlewingmyoho says:

    James Comey is a PATRIOT

  49. littlewingmyoho says:

    Sounds like Bar to.me

  50. Everblue Freediving says:

    Trump's DOJ no longer serves America. It is a partisan wing of the Executive branch. The law means nothing to Trump and the Federal government.

  51. Tony Igwe says:

    The report had to give the Right Wing's talk radio hosts and "FALSE NEWS" something to read to their audiences to keep the anger going. Very well done!

  52. Richard VanKirk says:

    Keep feeding yourself on the FAKE NEWS media diet and you will continue to live in Delusion.

  53. Richard VanKirk says:

    This is the least of COMEY's CRIMES…perpetrating a FRAUD on the FISA court…X3 is a minimum of three felonies James Comey…better lawyer up you Coup leader!

  54. John Townsend says:

    The stable genius says Comey "should be ashamed of himself"! Now that's rich. And there by the grace of god goes the un-indicted unabashedly corrupt criminal in the oval office scot-free to continue his campaign of wreaking havoc and chaos on the nation. What a pathetic and dangerous travesty of justice!

  56. Skydiver says:

    Comey will be Indicted for falsifying the FISA Court application to Spy on the Trump campaign. Lost of Indictment relating to the Russian Collusion Hoax invented by the Clinton campaign & DNC.

  57. Edward Curran says:

    Just fake new as usual you are a disgrace.

  58. Tony Colucci says:

    Comey tried to mastermind a coup. Comey will be prosecuted shortly. Barr has plans for Comey.

  59. Stephen Young says:

    Trump leaks to Putin. Moscow bedbug

  60. Semper Skeptical says:

    So he leaked government information about the president of the US to a reporter basically and you guys justify this by saying well the president tried to obstruct justice so Comey had to leak it. Yet we just had s 2 year investigation of the president and nowhere in the special counsels report does it say trump obstructed justice because he didnt and he also never colluded with Russia so what exactly would he have been obstructing even if he did obstruct justice? A bogus which hunt of an investigation that wasted 30 million dollars of tax payer money? Yep

  61. * 9/11 DANCING ISRAEL'S* says:

    Comey is a patriot

  62. Cate Ellington says:

    How exactly was Horowitz ‘trying to please both sides’ and by that I mean those who don’t support the lies coming from Trump & RW Media about Comey?? There was no THERE there! That was truth. I get he was trying hard to please Trump but in no way was Horowitz at all concerned about pleasing the side of truth!

  63. Cate Ellington says:

    Giving credit to Horowitz for anything is ridiculous

  64. Shiloh Reid says:

    Where do they come up with this sh!t… He supposed to be under Guantanamo….

  65. Pat Melton says:

    OMG Very Fake News

  66. C&B Jones says:

    The last ten pages of chest-beating are purely trying to intimidate anyone who is thinking about whistle-blowing

  67. D* R* says:

    Who is an FBI Director supposed to call, when the President & Staff, are Russian Traitors? Today, Mike Flynn is going into the SLAM and "Nazi Donald" is accused in the Mueller Report for "Obstruction"! ……Comey, is the Straight Shooter!

  68. wily wascal says:

    Comey broke FBI policy discussing disproven allegations against the Democratic candidate (but somehow never informed the public about the serious investigation going on with the Republican candidate, Trump, and his collusion with Russia, that the public vitally NEEDED to KNOW before voting), which department guidelines lay out very clearly Comey was NOT allowed to do.  Whatever Comey's intent, he helped Russia and Republicans get a criminal, sociopathic menace installed in the White House. Comey is largely responsible for this whole mess in the first place. Let's not forget that fact. Sorry, media, there is not any equivocation of any kind to be found between Comey doing the WRONG thing, and that decision being a major factor in determining the outcome of a PRESIDENTIAL election (which is exactly the type of thing that the relevant policy was designed to prevent and protect against), and then afterward doing the right thing to warn people of the mess he in large part helped create. Why does the media always have to try equivocating? Can't one side just be plain wrong, sometimes? Another thing, media; you can't keep pointing out how close the 2016 election was–just 78,000 votes in three swing states–and then try pretending Comey's decision couldn't have been the difference. There were five things that cost Hillary the victory, any one of which cost her the election: Russian interference, Comey's disregard of FBI rules, Republican gerrymandering, Republican voter suppression, and Hilary's campaign strategy. Every candidate makes campaign mistakes, but they expect a level playing field, and James Comey tilted that playing field–despite having had every reason to have known better. To Comey's credit, he has tried to redeem himself by doing the right thing, but he still needs to acknowledge that he exercised horrible judgment for his handling of the Hillary matter during the 2016 election, and his responsibility and culpability in creating this whole mess, instead of tying to rationalize it. Comey needs to plainly and unequivocally acknowledge the importance of the rule prohibiting public disclosure of ongoing investigations involving electoral candidates, his malfeasance in deciding to disregard it, and his significant role in swinging an election unfairly and unjustly to a raving lunatic. Let's remember that Comey didn't just cheat Hillary–he cheated the American people! While retaining some measure of respect for Comey, don't think he deserves forgiveness quite yet for that role.

    DOJ IG trying to force DOJ employees to be good little Nazis. This IG definitely needs to go, along with Barr and the DAG!

  70. J T says:

    The only report by the left and it’s a total spin off from the facts yous were better off not reporting on the IG report like the rest of your cronies or did yous get the memo too late hahahaha

  71. J T says:

    All I’ll say is take this version, Fox’s version and the facts from there you should derive to your own conclusion and not be clowned into thinking how the brainwashing fake news want you to think. Be Factual, Be Critical, Be Informed!

  72. J T says:

    Keep your hypotheticals, possibilities, if true, potentially and any other little speculating defining word you choose to use. Facts!

    The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the
    Inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men

  74. J B says:

    He leaked this to push a personal agenda to as Comey stated trigger a special counsel investigation into the President. What I'd now referred to as the Russian collusion hoax.

  75. Knowledge is Power says:

    Did you see what is in this report people? Multiple violations of misconduct and a "dangerous example" for the FBI to follow. This man and position is suppose to follow everything by the book and letter, he was undoubtedly bias and political, the exact opposite of a top lawman. "A higher loyalty"… to himself yes but certainly not to the bureau and what it stands for. (Integrity) He is an utter disgrace to the FBI and have no illusions his name has been severely tarnished by this report without question. From an apolitical U.S Combat Veteran.

  76. Paul Taylor says:

    Wait for the next report.. FISA!!! Where he lied to the court and signed off in writing.

  77. kalumnist says:

    The pile-on of Comey is about to begin. Just like with Paul Manafort. Then it is going to be one indictment after the other for Jim Comey, one interrogation after the other until he rats out all the Democrats that need ratting-out

  78. Ginu Raju says:

    What a dishonest guest

  79. Anthony Heath says:

    hillery didn't do nothing nether

  80. T Black says:

    James COMEY isn't "out of the woods yet" regarding Federal criminal indictments as James Comey signed off and approved the FISA applications not once, not twice .. but three times which were not verified and were based on the FAKE Russia Dossier. James Comey is most likely going to be indicted and prosecuted for pperjury and lying to the FISA court.

  81. Chris 3.1416 says:

    Comey is an incompetent effeminate stool from Obama's administration who is now taking the heat for Barrack. It seems right for Barry to defend his people. Obama isn't even defending his goofy VP, so now Comey is all by himself blowing in the wind.

  82. Mary Budesheim aka MaryPatriotNews.com says:

    OUTRAGEOUS!! I'M TIRED OF SEEING THE USA JUSTICE SYSTEM BEING TWISTED AND DESTROYED — ALL IN ORDER TO HELP OBAMA ADMIN PLAYERS LIKE COMEY! WHERE IS YOUR SPINE DOJ??? TRUMP, WHY AREN'T YOU DECLASSIFYING EVERYTHING RELATED TO #FISAGATE #SPYGATE #OBAMAGATE ??????????

  83. martin killam says:

    Why get Comey on a traffic violation when they have a treason case?

  84. jj ruth says:

    How about using unverified documents to get a visa warrant to spy on American citizens this victory lap may be a bit premature ,

  85. Kate Sterling says:

    I may be remembering this incorrectly and if I am, please correct me. I recall that Comey stated he decided not to bring charges against H Clinton because such charges were not likely to be successfully brought to a guilty verdict. It seems in effect that Barr has done the same. He is not bringing charges against Comey because he is not likely to be successful. For Barr, I imagine the last thing he would want is to use charges against Comey to try to fulfill TrumpTribe King Donald's command to send lock Comey up and then suffer a loss in court. It is more likely to me that this is really why he is not taking action against Comey and explains the last 10 pages of his report, using them as an opportunity to scald Comey's hair off his skin for the benefit of King Donald.

  86. Daniel Cliffordson says:

    wow….Such Hypocrisy…

  87. abc def says:

    Brennan, Clapper, and Comey, are going to have a victory party when they win & boogie at head quarters D.O.J. !!!

    THIS IS JUST THE BUILD UP FOR THE BIG LET DOWN WHEN WE LEARN OF NO CONVICTION & NO JAIL TIME FOR ANY OF THEM !!

    THEY ALL WILL WALK FREE !!

    News……..

  90. Kristy Reynolds says:

    Normalizing and supporting questionable behavior, making excuses for that behavior, leading the person being interviewed and then exclaiming “exactly”, that is my point….thank you for your opinion piece.

  91. salome says:

    Wow this makes me SICK. Comey had NO CHOICE, he couldn't tell Trump, the AG was recused and Rosenstein just got together with Trump to FIRE him. Sheesh, this HOROWITZ is a bloody SHILL and this is such SHAME on America.

  92. Roger Giddy says:

    MSNBC viewer must be glue sniffers

  93. G Sterling says:

    This guy was drunk on self importance.  He honestly believed that the fate of the republic was in his hands.  And he believes it to this day. 
    He wakes up one day and realizes that he caused Clinton to lose the election through sheer stupidity brought on by his God complex and he sees it as his duty to rectify that situation.  So he hatches this elaborate sting operation and it goes haywire.
    That an ego this big and a brain this small became the Director of the FBI is frightening.

  94. Joel Sattler says:

    No one is going to prison. There is no "deep state".
    There was no coup. There was no attempted coup.
    All you Trump lovers might want to seriously consider
    that the reason these people are not going to jail
    is because they're not guilty of what you think they are
    and that Fox and the rightwingers are misleading you.

  95. whatwhyandwhos says:

    Oh my god ……… did one person in the comment section read the report and understand its implications ? It is sad to watch how ignorant people with insufficient intellect or info are slaves to their own cognitive bias. I wager the FISC fraud will be clearly defined at law and take many pins down in a single bowl. Let's see if I'm right. Brookings Institute …..what an interesting history and fellowship they have, sigh. Information of a wholistic form is essential to seeing truth, it takes a great deal of time to gather it all and most people are too busy or disinterested to commit to the task……..this is why control of the flow of said information is vital if one wishes to control the narrative and thus the future direction of society.

  96. Patrick LaBelle says:

    Comey, what a lying little weasel…. And the left are too brain dead to understand what is going on, even when it is staring at them in the face.

  97. Homer Simpson says:

    They forgot to mention that the guy is a personal friend of Comey.

  98. Leland kemp says:

    Reading through some of the comments from the MSNBC followers. 😂😂😂😂😂

  99. Russell Dodd says:

    Democrats love rigged elections, dead minority babies, the KKK, oppression, lies, and everything disgusting you can think of.

  100. Russell Dodd says:

    Hitler would be so proud of the DNC and all of their accomplishments. The DNC is responsible for more dead minorities (mostly babies) than Hitler's wildest dreams, let alone actions. Lol at their actions, not their words. By the way, liberals that I know are racist as the day is long. Its a shame.
