Once again, MSNBC prominently featured former Obama administration official Jeremy Bash as a nonpartisan intelligence analyst with an appearance on Wednesday’s The 11th Hour. Host Brian Williams swooned over Bash as an “institutionalist” while Bash warned that the Trump-Russia story “is a huge crisis” threatening “our Madisonian system of checks and balances.”

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): “You're an institutionalist, I think it's fair to say, Jeremy. Did today, in a weird way, further diminish what you're witnessing in your old stomping grounds in the House Intelligence Committee by comparison?”
