>>So Washington Post with a doozy of a story,
the acting Director of National Intelligence, that’s Joseph Maguire, according to them quote,
threatened to resign over concerns of the White House might attempt to force him to
stonewall Congress when he testifies Thursday about an explosive whistleblower complaint
about the president, according to current and former US officials familiar with the
matter. So now, I’m gonna give you context to tell
you whether that’s true or not. Now, let me give you how the White House is
spinning it. They came out with a very simple statement,
which, again, as usual that they were kids. It just says that’s actually not true. That’s it. What if, okay, no-
>>That was really convincing.>>That’s actually not true. That is their statement.>>Power of persuasion.>>That was amazing.>>Well, do you wanna say why it’s not true
or what part of the story they got wrong? Just that’s actually not true. Anyway, so then they make Maguire come out
there and deny it.>>Is that literally it? There was nothing else?>>That’s right, it’s in the Washington Post. The White House also disputed the account. That is actually not true. White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham
said in a tweet, that’s it. Okay.>>Okay.>>Now Maguire comes out, and he’s gotta be
a little bit more careful. And that’s why we’re having this conversation
in the first place. Cuz he wants to tell Congress what the whistleblower
said. Why? Cuz that’s the law. So he doesn’t wanna break the law. The White House is telling him, don’t tell
him. Then I’m committing a crime. I don’t wanna commit a crime, right? So that’s the about back and forth. I’ll give you a quote that shows you exactly
what’s actually happening here in a second. But they’re making him deny that he threatened
to quit. So he says this quote, at no time have I considered
resigning my position since assuming this role all the way back in August 16th of 2019,
so earlier this month. I’ve never quit anything in my life and I’m
not gonna start now. I’m committed to leading the intelligence
community to address the diverse and complex threats facing our nation. Now when other media organizations give you
the quotes, they just leave it at that, we give you context. When you have a denial, you have to see what
do they say, and what do they not say, okay? So he’s saying, even if you believe him, well,
I didn’t threaten to resign. Yeah, but is the rest of the story true? That you’re having a disagreement about whether
you wanna testify and they’re blocking you from testifying? Well, he didn’t address that, he didn’t say
that wasn’t true. He just said I, I don’t quit man, no.>>How many times has the White House told
people that they’ve associated themselves with or have worked within the administration,
how many times have they told those people, ignore subpoenas from lawmakers? How many times?>>By the way, a translation for that is ignore
the law.>>Yeah, exactly.>>So and again, the House has to have consequences. Your subpoenas don’t mean anything if they
don’t have the force of law. In order for them to have the force of law,
at a minimum, you should be doing fines, significant fines every single day. But eventually, you have to take criminal
action against law-breaking. Anyway, now I wanna give you what Maguire
said on Tuesday evening, so last night. So this will tell you who’s right and who’s
wrong. He said, in light of recent reporting on the
whistleblower complaint, I wanna make clear that I have upheld my responsibility to follow
the law every step of the way. In other words, I’m trying to tell you guys
what the whistleblowers said cuz that’s what the law says I have to do. I am trying to follow my responsibility. He went on to say, I am committed to protecting
whistleblowers and ensuring every complaint is handled appropriately. I look forward to continuing to work with
administration and Congress to find a resolution regarding this important matter.>>And look, just to give you even more context
into this, he did go to the Department of Justice with this whistleblower complaint. And the Department of Justice told him, no,
no, no, this is a big, nothing burger. Don’t go to congressional lawmakers with this,
so->>And Maguire apparently is telling them,
guys, when the Inspector General says is a matter of, quote, urgent concern, there is
a statute that says I must give it to the Congress in seven days. It’s not optional. And Justice Department is like whatever, man,
don’t do it. That’s why he says in this quote, I look forward
to continuing to work with the administration and Congress to find a resolution regarding
this important matter. In other words, I’m stuck in the middle. I wanna tell you guys, I have to tell you
guys. But these guys are telling me I can’t.>>Clowns to the left of me, jokers to my
right.>>To the right of me, but yes.>>Whatever.>>That song, it’s a good song.>>It is, it is.>>Yeah.>>I have it on my iTunes.>>So this is very important environment. If the Directive of National Intelligence
is not allowed to testify by the White House, I don’t know what he does. I know what Congress should do. You follow the law, otherwise, there’s legal
consequences. And I think that if they actually have the
courage to do that, which to me doesn’t require any courage at all. Wait, I gave you a subpoena, plus, it’s already
in the law that you have to tell me in seven days. So that’s two different laws you’d be violating. You know that the Congress actually has a
little jail inside of the Congress. So, the Sergeant at Arms is here. So you will either tell us what the whistleblower
said according to law, or you’ll be taken into custody.>>Wow, that would be the most badass thing,
that like.>>But guys, you see the thing is, there’s
no reason not to do that. The only reason they don’t do it is because
of the club. They say, well, I do declare, he’s among the
elite. And what if they were to take us into custody? And so, I wouldn’t wanna disturb the club. But if you actually cared about getting the
justice, getting the truth and following the law, that’s an obvious thing to do.>>Yes.>>It’s actually not a hard decision at all. The only thing blocking in them is the club. And by the way, if you did that with Maguire,
you know what he would do? He obviously wants to tell you. He wants to tell you. All you gotta do is apply a little bit of
pressure. And then he goes, okay, fine, here’s what
the whistleblower said, okay?>>And how quickly would Trump start referring
to him as a rat?>>100%, and guys, now this is really important. All it takes is one critical person in the
Trump administration to break and to turn and say this is what happened. If Maguire was to say, if he got the sense
of throwing him under a bus, by the way, Giuliani now is worried that he’s getting thrown under
a bus. Man, if you cut that close to the bone, Trump
is so stupid. Anyway, if Maguire was to turn and say the
White House does not want me to tell you what the whistleblower said. They have asked me to violate the law. I will not do it. Here’s what the whistleblower said. And Donald Trump made a promise to this foreign
leader. And it is not right. And here’s the evidence of it. Good night, Irene, it’s over, okay? It takes one person with courage to say it. Because at that point, you can’t deny it. And you would have hard evidence, and it’d
be over. This close, this close. I don’t know if anyone in Washington has the
courage to actually tell the truth. But if they did, this thing is closer to over
than you realize.

  1. I don’t subscribe to this lying fake news BS channel, but it is fun to come over to see what brainwashing crap they’re feeding you stupid fuk’n ass libtards today. And again Chunk is lying big time and you all are falling for it. Trump Fan Network 2 shows proof of that. Definitely not the first time The Dumb Turds make shit up!! Enjoy their bitter fuk’n koolaid Libs

  2. GOP tried to make the whistleblower seem like he behaves like a politician. He followed protocol because he is a paid professional and not trying to please a public audience. Look through the eyes of the person. I think politicians know this but hope that their constituents are dumb asses

  3. More Trump spin…..lies! The donald thinks everything he does is not illegal…he doesn't know the difference between legal and illegal. Everything in his life has been illegal!

  4. I think that "threat" was a ruse. Every other word from his mouth was about how he couldn't say anything.
    Doesn't sound "free" to me.

  5. Don't think Trump will be impeached because the Republican senate will not vote on it they will protect him like they always have

  6. He was caught this time, but this is how Trump won last time too. This interloper pisspot is not legitimately the POTUS jn the first place.

  7. He was caught this time, but this is how Trump won last time too. This interloper pisspot is not legitimately the POTUS jn the first place.

  8. Donald Trump runs the US like it is his own private business. It is not about Americans. It is about him. He has enmeshed himself (like any typical narcissist) as his interests and the US's interest are one and the same. The US is an extension of himself in his eyes.

  9. More and more Republicans will abandon Trump, during the next few months. It's inevitable. The future of their entire party is at stake.

  10. It appears TYT has one big problem. That is they lie a lot. And they try to put words in people's mouth's. Totally not right!!! For TYT to do this And it appears TYT wants to make the facts up on their own regardless of what the person has stated TYT up to there same old tricks. Per BS.

  11. Cuffed and taken to a cell when they refuse to answer a question would be great. If they want to invoke their 5th amendment to not incriminate themselves, fine, but this "can't obey the law because the POTUS told me not to" needs to be punished. Maximum fines and stay in cell till answers are given in full. Like us citizens.

  12. Hmmm how strange…….. he said during the hearing today he never considered resigning. Poor TYT you’ve really crapped the bed on this Ukraine deal. Your progressive allies totally disagree with you. Kyle K gets it, Aron Mate gets it, Jimmy D gets it. TYT will soon be the “former home of progressives”. Especially since your shilling so hard for an establishment shill Warren

  13. And this is fake news. Another story TYT wont retract. He never said he'd quit and has never quit anything in his life. Keep digging the grave.

  14. Barr is a thug , he should be disbarred & the Ghoul iani also . Lock’m up , lock’m up lock’m up send the Ghoul & trump to RIKERS , Barr to ALCATRAZ with Moscow Mitch .

  15. Hope the world is watching how openly corrupted our government is and every elected official is out for himself working for the people please.

  16. I don't think it's that easy for those around him to 'get away'. Look how he destroyed Kathy Griffin's career in, what, maybe 3 weeks?! I think he could do much more harm, as this is waaay more serious than a 'Donald mask'.

  17. Intel director need to resign he was stumbling and was trying to keep things looking like he was for doing the right thing all those crooks need to go directly to jail.

  18. The click-bait headline on this video is – "Trump's Intel Director Threatens To Resign" – which is bullshit. Don't deliberately put up a headline that you know is FALSE .
    THAT'S PURE MANIPULATION. TYT does this all the time.

  19. the rats are escaping the trump ship….as everyone should….tubby toxic trump is the one to leave behind ….far far behind…..who would ever even admit to being a toxic trump supporter unless stupidity has taken place in the brain of the erstwhile supporter.

  20. Bless and protect the patriotic whisteblower….Whistle blowers are people who are heroes…and patriotic ….trump should executed not the whistleblower. The whistle blower is a hero.
    trump is the evil antagonist. guess who I would choose for execution if I had the power!!!

  21. No he didn't. God how embarrassing it must be to be you guys who keep lying about shit. And even more embarrassing for the people that believe your crap.

  22. Fake news!!! in open testimony in front of the house intelligence committee. The Director of National Intelligence said that he never once said he would resign that he never has quit from anything in his life in this wouldn't be the first. I hope the people who follow this channel actually look into some of the crap they say

  23. What makes Cenk so much more convincing than the dumb dumbs at the white house is how powerful of a man he is when he calls out Donald Trump for being such a stupid moronic child and a big fat loser. He is so smart and tough and eloquent and clever and witty. Anna just sounds like a bitch though. Why doesnt Cenk tutor her more?

  24. Republicans are the party of law and order…..🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
    Worst criminals on the planet
    These GOP politicians are worse than the mob, the damage they have done to our country and the planet is irreparable. I have Republicans in my family, I find it below me to even shake their hands or be in the same room as them.

  25. Yang is on it. They can laugh if they want to. This guys is exactly what the middle and lower class needs in America. Not to mention once he wins the white house and get that $1000.00 a month in the hands of the American people: Never again will any candidate of any party be able to win office thereafter if they are not adding to that $1000.00 a month. Not Congress, the Senate or Dog Catcher if they cannot add to that $1000.00 a month. Everyone will be paying attention every election. "Think struggling Americans are going to listen to Trump say to the American People how you don't need or deserve a thousand dollars a month: While he sits and craps on actual gold toilets and not paying his taxes? I don't think so.

  26. The young turkeys reading between the lines , your reading between the lines on the Russian collusion was obvious SHIT! Keep going turkeys.

  27. They took the job they are in the history book now on the record for working for king idiot the madhatter in Trump world.

  28. You still are guilty of this crime and you need to have your hearing, and pay for what you done, put on your big boy pantry!!! Democrats, do not let this trader walk away, if you do it will come back to bite you in the ass???

  29. Why are so many people leaving Trump… If they don't get fired or imprisoned?
    🎶 Trumptards! 🎶
    What's your excuse this time?
    Please explain us!

  30. I really wish I had the money and time to go to DC for the hearing.
    According to Washington DC law a citizen's arrest (§ 23–582. Arrests without warrant by other persons)allows a private person to arrest another who he has probable cause to believe is committing a felony in his presence.
    If congress won't act the people need to.

  31. No big deal! The democrats have to remember 1 thing, all the things they are doing to Trump, republicans will one day be able to do to them! Obama should have been impeached when he gave Iran, a terrorist country, 150 billion dollars, funding terrorism in the middle east!
