In another sign of tension ahead of the highly-anticipated intelligence memo’s release, Thursday’s Hardball was in DEFCON-1 territory with MSNBC host Chris Matthews and his A-Block guests melting down over the “all-out war” that could lead to a “constitutional crisis.”
Matthews began with a grim mood, almost as if he were reading a script announcing the end of the world, declaring that “[i]n a year of all-out war between the President of the United States and the American justice system, this latest battle might reach a new height all together.”
“President Trump appears now to be ready for war with his own FBI director. It’s over whether or not to release a partisan report dressed up as an intelligence document. It’s authored by the staff of Trump’s chief congressional defender, Devin Nunes. The battle lines are as clear as they are astounding,” he added.
