MSNBC host: Next time federal agents are killed in the line of duty, that is on Trump

NBC News political analyst Nicolle Wallace not only did her part to discredit the House Intelligence Committee memo released Friday, she upped the ante to say, through a third party, that President Donald Trump is responsible the next time federal agents are killed in the line of duty by allowing the memo to be released.

This from a memo that the left has labeled a “nothing-burger.”

The host of MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” led a panel discussion on the release of the memo which exposed potential corruption in the upper echelons of the FBI and Justice Department, with a focus on how it may harm agents in the field.

But Wallace took the narrative further.

“Let me paint a bleaker picture. It was posited to me by a former national security official,” she said. “That the next Waco, the next time that federal law enforcement officials are killed in the line of duty, that’s on Trump.”

Four federal agents died in the ATF’s initial attempt to raid the Branch Davidian ranch in Waco, Texas, which lead to a 51 day standoff and the ultimate death of 76 members of the sect in 1993.

The panel was reacting to a message from FBI Director Chris Wray to the bureau after the memo was released encouraging agents to “keep calm and tackle hard.”

“The American people read the papers, and they hear lots of talk on cable TV and social media,” Wray wrote. “But they see and experience the actual work you do ― keeping communities safe and our nation secure … and that will always matter more.

“Talk is cheap. The work you do is what will endure.”

Wallace gave contributor Donny Deutsch, a staunch critic of the president, the last word and he did not disappoint the anti-Trump crowd.

“The FBI are the people that dedicate their lives to protect us and give their lives. Period,” he said. “The other guy’s a reality real estate star.”
