‘Senator Sanders, I'm Sorry': Chris Matthews Apologizes for Nazi Analogy
Facing outrage over comparing Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' Nevada Democratic caucus victory to France falling to the Nazis in World War II, Chris Matthews addressed the controversy at the top of his Monday night broadcast."As I watched one-sided results of the caucus in Nevada, I reached for a historical analogy and used a bad one," the veteran MSNBC personality said. "I was wrong to refer to an event from the last days, or actually the first days, of World War II.""Senator Sanders, I'm sorry for comparing anything from that tragic era in which so many suffered, especially the Jewish people, to an elected result in which you were a well-deserved winner," Matthews continued. "This is going to be a hard-fought, heated campaign of ideas."The Hardball host concluded his apology by saying he would "strive to do a better job" of "elevating the political discussion" in the coming weeks and months before congratulating the Democratic presidential hopeful on his "tremendous win down in Nevada."Matthews then welcomed on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, who recently endorsed Sanders, to make the case for the Vermont senator's candidacy.MSNBC has come under fire for its increasingly negative and critical coverage of the Democratic socialist lawmaker as the primary has heated up. Even before Matthews made his unfortunate analogy, the longtime host had been blasted over his unhinged reactions to Sanders' rise.Prior to Monday's mea culpa, Matthews received criticism from his own colleagues for his remarks

Susan Collins Breaks With Trump on Director of National Intelligence Pick
Republican Senator Susan Collins, a senior member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, on Monday rejected President Trump's pick to lead the intelligence community, saying Richard Grenell does not have the experience to serve as director of national intelligence."I would have much preferred that the president nominate the acting director Maguire for the post," Collins said, referring to the former director of national intelligence, Joseph Maguire."As one of the four authors of the law that created the DNI back in 2004, I care deeply about that position and believe the person needs experience in the intelligence community, which regrettably Ambassador Grenell does not have," Collins continued.The Maine Republican, who is up for reelection this year, is the first in Trump's party to raise concerns about his pick. Collins helped draft the 2004 law that established the office of director of national intelligence.Maguire was forced out on Thursday, his sudden departure causing consternation among the Intelligence Community, and replaced with Grenell, formerly the U.S. Ambassador to Germany.His departure came after Trump was reportedly irked about a classified briefing last Thursday during which Shelby Pierson, the intelligence community election threats executive, warned lawmakers that Russia is again interfering in the 2020 campaign and attempting to get Trump reelected.The president was said to be "out of joint with Maguire" on that process after hearing about the intelligence concl
