Malcolm Nance: Trump-Russia Collusion "Could Technically Eclipse Benedict Arnold," Biggest Scandal In U.S. History

|

Saturday on MSNBC's "AM Joy," national security analyst Malcolm Nance predicted that

"I've said this 100 times today. Everyone repeat after me," Nance said. "The single most serious scandal in the history of the United States. Was the president of the United States an agent of the enemy of the United States?"





"Look. This could technically eclipse Benedict Arnold who at least did it for money, you know. But we're talking a president here in control of the country under the sway of a foreign power. So one way or the other, we're going to want to know the answer to that," he continued.




JOY-ANN REID: How do you have confidence this won't be a positive spin coming out of Donald Trump's personally hand-picked attorney general?

MALCOLM NANCE: Well, it was Joe Scarborough last year who wrote a really good, a brilliant op-ed, that I think will stand the test of time, when he said that the Congress -- the Constitution and the Founders, when they were drafting the Constitution, they realized that at some point there would be someone who would attempt to emulate King George and come in and try to rule as a tyrant.

What they never thought was that the legislative branch of government, one of the two, would go over to that tyrant and act as a rubber stamp for them, eventually creating a Soviet-style Politburo in the United States. Fortunately, we had the election of 2018. Some measure of balance has been put back in there. But the information that's going to come out of this report when we see the report, and I'm confident we're going to see most of the report unless it's grand jury information or it's related to a very sensitive intelligence collection. But for the most part, we're going to see that information, and the Democrats are going to be in a real dilemma. They don't want to use impeachment and this may show that they're going to have to impeach Donald Trump.

REID: Wait a minute. Why do you believe we're going to see it?

NANCE: I believe we're going to see it because the pressure is just too big. I've said this 100 times today. Everyone repeat after me. The single most serious scandal in the history of the United States. Was the president of the United States an agent of the enemy of the United States? Look. This could technically eclipse Benedict Arnold who at least did it for money, you know. But we're talking a president here in control of the country under the sway of a foreign power. So one way or the other, we're going to want to know the answer to that.
