Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough did their best to debunk the House and Senate investigations into the FBI following the Russia probe, saying that they are “undercutting the foundation of this democracy” and calling their discoveries so far about the Strzok text scandal “conspiracy theories” Thursday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.

WATCH:

“This dirty pool that is being played by members of the Senate and the House and the administration you’re undercutting the foundation of this democracy because you’re supposed to preserve it, and you’re using it right now to try and deflect from possible crimes by the president, who…” trailed Brzezinski.

“And we talked about this yesterday, today, somewhere in your state, somewhere definitely in your country, there are FBI agents that are going around, that are trying to gain intel, they’re trying to get information, they’re trying to break apart terror networks of home grown terror networks that want to blow up your church, that want to blow up your synagogue that want to kill you or your family or other people in your community and it is these FBI agents who stand between you, me, all of us and future terror attacks, either by members of ISIS that infiltrate this country, or by homegrown terrorists,” Scarborough rambled. “When these conspiracy theories are spread, for political reason and solely political reasons to protect the president who is not worth your protection with your lives, you are only making it more difficult for our law enforcement officers to protect your family and mine against Islamic terrorism, and homegrown terrorism that you supposedly fear so much.

“So just stop it. get out of their way, let them do their jobs, and let the chips fall where they may. If Mueller overreaches, we will be the first to say so. The press will be the first to say so. Just stop with your conspiracy theories ’cause you are making America less safe.”
