Chris Matthews: Trump "Purging" FBI; "Slow Motion Saturday Night Massacre"


MSNBC's Chris Matthews responded to the House Intelligence Committee voting to release the Nunes memo and said we are now witnessing a purge when it comes to people involved in the Russia investigation.

"It looks to me like a purge," Matthews said to Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX). "Today McCabe gets pushed out as deputy of the FBI and now the president’s on the warpath after — thanks to Chairman Nunes of your committee to dig up evidence enough to support getting rid of Rod Rosenstein, the deputy head of the Justice Department. Why is he purging everybody that’s involved with investigating him and the Russian probe?"

"Congressman, you’re too young to have seen it," the MSNBC host said. "But it looks like a slow motion Saturday night massacre. One by one, Comey, Mccabe and now Rosenstein in the target zone."
