On Tuesday’s Hardball, MSNBC host Chris Matthews and MSNBC contributor/Obama-era CIA Director John Brennan openly speculated whether President Trump has told the CIA to not carry out covert operations or compile intelligence against North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and that he would willfully accept help from the Russians to get him reelected.

“What did he mean by ‘that wouldn’t happen?’ To mean we weren’t going to spy on him and who he’s killing in his family over there,” Matthews screeched after a soundbite of Trump being asked about reports of how the half-brother Kim had murdered was a CIA asset.
