<p>Once again, MSNBC prominently featured former Obama administration official Jeremy Bash as a nonpartisan intelligence analyst with an appearance on Wednesday&rsquo;s <em>The 11th Hour</em>. Host Brian Williams swooned over Bash as an<strong> &ldquo;institutionalist&rdquo;</strong> while Bash warned that the Trump-Russia story <strong>&ldquo;is a huge crisis&rdquo; </strong>threatening<strong> &ldquo;our Madisonian system of checks and balances.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Williams turned to Bash at the 11:11 p.m. Eastern mark and invited him to attack the House Intelligence Committee (i.e Devin Nunes): <strong>&ldquo;You&#39;re an institutionalist, I think it&#39;s fair to say, Jeremy. Did today, in a weird way, further diminish what you&#39;re witnessing in your old stomping grounds in the House Intelligence Committee by comparison?&rdquo;</strong></p>
