Maher: FBI ‘Working With Russia’ To Get Trump Elected Is ‘Fascism’

On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher stated that the FBI worked with Russia to get President Donald Trump elected, which is “fascism.”

Maher said, “This week, the president talked about sending troops to Chicago. … Talked about starting up black sites for torture overseas. His chief strategist said the media should keep their mouth shut and just listen. He muzzled agencies. … I’d like us to keep our eye on the big picture of all these things, which, to me, look like a strongman fascist country”

He later said, “When the FBI is in the tank, as they were, for one candidate, and they become politicized, and they’re actually working with Russia to get him elected, yeah, that’s fascism.”
