    Can doing something you have the legal right to do nevertheless constitute a crime? Yes . . . according to Andrea Mitchell. On today’s Morning Joe, just moments after acknowledging that President Trump “has the legal right” to have canceled John Brennan’s security clearance, Mitchell continued: “Arguably, some people will say, and I’m not a lawyer, but I’m certain that Mueller is looking into this, that this could be another issue of potential obstruction of justice. Whether it is of criminal import or not, it certainly is a question.”Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    Reporter Andrea Mitchell is celebrating 40 years with NBC News and appeared on Comedy Central's "The Daily Show" to discuss the milestone. Host Trevor Noah suggested that the killing of five people in an Annapolis, Maryland, newsroom could be laid at President Trump's door (he wasn't joking). Mitchell demurred but denounced Trump for calling the media the "enemy of the people." The term certainly has a Soviet echo. That said, conservatives certainly could consider them the enemy. We prefer calling the "objective" media the "opposition party." "It's not benign," Mitchell proclaimed. "You know, this is something that we first heard...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” former Republican National Committee chair Michael Steele likened President Donald Trump’s rally last night in Wilkes-Barre, PA to a “circus” that is causing “swing voters” to move away from Republicans. Steele said, “Pennsylvania is a bellwether for a number of important races coming up this fall and the fact that the president is so narrowly playing to a base, that he feels good in that setting, he’s having fun, he’s riffing and cussing and doing all this and those folks are loving it. To Charlie’s point, the rest of the country, the independent voters,...

    On Friday's Andrea Mitchell Reports, MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff misleadingly claimed that hundreds of illegal immigrants were deported before they were "able" to collect their children without noting that, according to Trump administration officials, many of them declined the opportunity to take their children with them, possibly hoping that the children will succeed in attaining asylum and indefinite residency. MSNBC Misleadingly Claims Illegals Deported Before 'Able' to Reunite w ChildrenReferring to ACLU demands that the government locate deported immigrants who are presumably in their home countries to ask them if they wish to arrange to get their children back, host...

    This week marks Andrea Mitchell’s 40th anniversary at NBC News, and the network has been filled with tributes to her. But when it comes to gushing, it will be hard to top Willie Geist’s effort, which aired during Mitchell’s MSNBC show today: “You are one of a very small handful of icons in our business, about whom a young journalist thinks: I can’t even believe I work in the same news division where she works. It always has been a privilege, and that awe has never gone away.” The tribute ended with a still shot of Mitchell warmly holding hands...

    On Tuesday’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, two Florida politicians, a Republican and a Democrat, made back-to-back appearances to discuss gun control. Host Andrea Mitchell took a radically different tone with each interviewee – both of whom are seeking statewide elected office in 2018 – thus epitomizing MSNBC’s inescapable liberal bias. While speaking with Republican Florida State Representative Jay Fant, Mitchell assumed an adversarial role, grilling him on his recent vote against a measure to ban assault rifles. Throughout the brief interview, she argued that the Second Amendment was not absolute, citing the late Justice Scalia’s decision in the frequently-referenced District of...

    MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell fretted Friday that the FBI's acknowledged error in not following up on a credible trip on Nikolas Cruz might serve as fodder for critics of the Russia investigation. In a statement, the FBI said Friday that "protocols were not followed" after someone contacted the bureau's Public Access Line on Jan. 5 with concerns about Cruz, who authorities say confessed to carrying out the Florida school shooting this week. The individual provided information in January about Cruz's desire to kill people, erratic behavior, disturbing social media posts, and potential to carry out a school shooting. The FBI...

    The lovely Andrea Mitchell: It's another base-pleasing moment and the fact checkers will be up all night, because on clean coal here we have a president in 2018 advertising the coal industry and not talking about the future. How that is appealing to anybody -- and also false claims on the auto industry, false claims on job creation, exaggerating that, one thing after another, and of course the grandiose claims about the tax bill, the individual is tax cuts are going to expire, the corporate ones stay forever.

    MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell said Tuesday that President Donald Trump's first foreign trip since taking office was being received "very, very well" in the Middle East. "It's actually being received very, very well in this region," Mitchell said on "Morning Joe." "I have to tell you that his scripted speeches, the speech he just gave at the museum, the cultural museum, was very well received in Israeli media, as well as among the people obviously there, the invited guests," Mitchell said. "But he hit all of the notes." Mitchell then spoke of Trump's ties with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before...
  • Russia diplomat questions NBC journalist's ‘manners’ (NBC News's Andrea Mitchell)

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on Wednesday scolded NBC News's Andrea Mitchell when she tried asking Secretary of State Rex Tillerson a question. "Mr. Secretary, the Russians don't believe the intelligence," she began during the pair's press conference in Moscow. "How confident are you, Mr. Secretary-?" Mitchell was unable to finish her question, as Lavrov interjected. "Who was bringing you up?" Lavrov asked Mitchell in English, before switching to Russian. "Who was giving you your manners, you know?" Lavrov's rebuke of Mitchell, NBC's chief foreign affairs correspondent, came during Tillerson's first visit to Russia since becoming President Trump's secretary of State and...

    President Donald Trump ridiculed former National Security Adviser Susan Rice after a televised interview with MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell. “Take a look at what’s happening,” Trump told the New York Times. “I mean, first of all her performance was horrible yesterday on television even though she was interviewed by Hillary Clinton’s P.R. person, Andrea Mitchell.” Trump said he thought that the media was not covering the story enough, pointing to some Democratic friends of his who were disturbed by the civil liberties aspects of Rice’s behavior. The president did not share any new details, but encouraged the press to keep digging....

    MSNBC host and NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell scored an exclusive interview on Wednesday afternoon with Secretary of State John Kerry following his speech blasting Israel and, not surprisingly, she served up softballs for Kerry up to attack Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The warm feelings were clear from the onset as Mitchell gushed over how Kerry’s 70-minute-plus remarks were “unusual” representing “an important moment” even though President-elect Donald Trump had been tweeting how he’s “very much disagreeing” with the Obama administration’s Israel policy and December 23 United Nations (UN) vote.

    Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday said American allies "won't be swayed or intimidated by a tweet" from President-elect Donald Trump, who has repeatedly weighed in on foreign affairs despite not yet taking office. In an exclusive interview with NBC's Andrea Mitchell, Kerry said he would not get into a "debate" with Trump, but suggested U.S. allies have been "affected" by the president-elect's recent commentary on U.S.-Israeli relations and other sensitive foreign policy issues.

    On her 12 p.m. ET hour show on Monday, MSNBC anchor Andrea Mitchell advanced liberal fears that Donald Trump was compiling a “hit list” of Energy Department officials who pushed Obama administration climate change policy by sending around a “very controversial questionnaire” about the issue. Speaking to White House correspondent Kristen Welker, Mitchell fretted: “There was a very controversial questionnaire that their energy transition team sent out to everyone in the Energy Department at the high levels asking for the names of anyone who helped negotiate the Paris climate change accord....It was viewed by a lot of people at Energy...

    MSNBC’s resident Hillary Clinton super-fan, Andrea Mitchell, came across as particularly desperate Wednesday as she dedicated a segment of Andrea Mitchell Reports to dreaming of a possible recount in three key swing states. “Some Clinton supporters are trying to mount a campaign to ask for an audit in key states to see if a recount should be ordered,” she reported, “According to a group of election lawyers and computer scientists… there is quote, ‘Persuasive evidence that election results in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan may have been manipulated or hacked.’” The report Mitchell was staking her hopes and dreams on was...

    Following the recent discovery of e-mails, possibly pertinent to the Hillary Clinton private server investigation on a device belonging to Anthony Weiner, FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress Friday to inform them. Beyond the waves that the letter created, it appears to have left NBC’s reporter and Clinton super-fan Andrea Mitchell absolutely distraught over when this means for her candidates’ campaign. “This is just the worst possible situation for the FBI, for the country, for Hillary Clinton certainly,” Mitchell exclaimed during Meet the Press on Sunday. Mitchell praised Clinton for going “nuclear” on the FBI director as...

    Monday on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell addressed how President Donald Trump treats the press as “the enemy of the people.” Mitchell likened Trump to Joseph Stalin, saying what the president attacking fake news is “very dangerous.” “This is something that we first heard from Joseph Stalin. This is very dangerous. It undercuts democracy,” Mitchell said. “And for years and years, I’ve covered the State Department where we’ve tried to teach and help, advocate with new democracies how to train journalists and how we do journalism.”
