MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace reacted Thursday to Attorney General Bill Barr’s press conference regarding FBI special counsel Robert Mueller’s report into alleged Russian collusion in the 2016 presidential election.
Wallace pointed out that Barr mentioned “no collusion” multiple times in his remarks about Mueller’s conclusion and said it was “extraordinary” to her that a lawyer would do such a thing.
“No lawyer, legal presentation presents its conclusion six times,” Wallace stated. “A political messenger, and I know a little about that having been a political messenger all of my career, underscores the central message, particularly if it’s on shaky ground, multiple times. To use that room, to use that podium to underscore Donald Trump’s refrain on his Twitter feed for the last two years with collusion was just an extraordinary thing to witness.”
