No one doubts that the liberal media acts as an arm of the Democrat party. But MSNBC's Yasmin Vossoughian has now provided an absolutely brazen example of the phenomenon. Usually, they refrain from using the royal We when discussing Democrat strategy.
Vossoughian subbed for Ari Melber on his MSNBC show The Beat on Thursday. Interviewing ultraliberal Rep. Jamie Raskin of Maryland, Vossoughian three times asked Raskin which was the best way that "we" should go after Attorney General Bill Barr and/or the Mueller report and testimony by Mueller.
After Raskin called Barr's attitude "constitutionally intolerable," Vossoughian responded.
"You’re bringing up a really good point here. Because one of the, I think, directives here, and the big question here is, do we pursue the Attorney General until he provides testimony for the House? Or, do we pursue the unredacted Mueller report along with testimony from Bob Mueller? Is that where we put our energy?"
Is Vossoughian sure she wants to conduct these Dem strategy sessions in public? Might Nancy Pelosi be better advised to invite "journalist" Vossoughian—or however she bills herself—into a private huddle with her fellow party members?
Here's the transcript.

JAMIE RASKIN: Well, look. What we have is an administration that is now engulfed in lawlessness and corruption. And we have to begin to check them at important points. The Attorney General, theoretically, should be on our side but he’s not. He obviously has gone over to the side of the President and is cooperating in promoting the President’s position now, which is that he will not cooperate with any subpoenas. He will not respond to any lawful orders or requests from the House of Representatives.
That’s obviously constitutionally intolerable and Congress can’t put up with it. So, we have to make it clear to the public and make clear to the whole system of government that the Attorney General is acting outside of the law. Then we have to proceed to get to the guts of the Mueller report, to bring those witnesses forward, so America can hear what happened.
YASMIN VOSSOUGHIAN: Yeah, absolutely. And you’re bringing up a really good point here. Because one of the, I think, directives here, and the big question here is, do we pursue the Attorney General until he provides testimony for the House? Or, do we pursue the unredacted Mueller report along with testimony from Bob Mueller? Is that where we put our energy?
