Chris Mathews: Trump-Russia Collusion Theory ‘Came Apart’ During Comey Testimony

There would be no tingles going up the legs of Chris Matthews this Thursday as the MSNBC host acknowledged that the accusations that President Trump directly colluded with Russia to interfere in the 2016 presidential election “came apart” following former FBI Director James Comey‘s testimony in front of Congress.

“The assumption of the critics of the president, of his pursuers, you might say, is that somewhere along the line in the last year is the president had something to do with colluding with the Russians … to affect the election in some way,” Matthews said during MSNBC’s post-Comey testimony analysis.

“And yet what came apart this morning was that theory”.

Matthews also said that “Flynn wasn’t central to the Russian investigation” and “if that’s not the case, where’s the there-there?”
