Warren's Organization Faces Second Test In New Hampshire

"This is not a time to you. Say the lucid. This is a time to step up and when we see a big problem offer a big solution. I shouldn't have to fight for it. I'm not running a race that has been shaped by a bunch of consultants. I'm not offering a bunch of proposals that have been carefully designed not to offend big donors. I pass at stop sign a long time ago. Good morning we're incredible answer but we are just forty eight. Our primary those comments by Senator Elizabeth Warren which appear to be directed at people to judge underscore the frustration that many democratic women you are feeling at the sheer dismissal of Warren and the other women candidates by people who are getting pulled by some voters and yes by much of the media. I mean she does have a point because when you look at. The field of candidates took to the stage in New Hampshire this week. It's really hard to argue that the two strongest candidates representing the moderate and the progressive wings of the Party. You weren't the two women who shared the New York Times endorsement for President which was also weird namely Senators Warrant and eight which are so. Why is it that the female candidates hates who come to the table with experience? Actual plans are not gaining as much traction as their male counterparts. CNN poll leading up to the debate underscores the point all all three women candidates who remain in the Race Elizabeth Warren Amy Klobuchar and Tulsa Gabbard our polling below ten percent among New Hampshire voters. We're now learning from the Boston Globe. WBZ tracking poll. That is the only female candidate who benefited with a three point. Bump from Friday night's debate and that apparent excitement helped her. The campaign raised two point. Five million dollars since the debate. No Word Yet from the Warren campaign of any fundraising updates with New Hampshire almost in the rear view mirror. What does that mean if anything as Democrats headed to more diverse states like Nevada and South Carolina at the end of the month have Democrats writ large decided that they try to woman candidate and and it didn't work and so now it's a man only game or is gender just not a factor in how Democratic voters are choosing their candidate? Joining me now. Is James pendle political reporter for the Boston Globe. Kimberly Atkins MSNBC CONTRIBUTOR and senior Washington correspondent for Wvu are and Beth who's MSNBC senior politics editor the senior politics editor. Thank you guys for being here. James Start with you. It does seem like women are doing well in terms of presenting plans branding themselves. They can do candidates but not doing well in the polls what. What can we read into that here in New Hampshire well clearly right now is on on the upswing after that debate performance when it comes to Elizabeth Warren her fall remember? She had a huge rise. She was leading in Iowa and New Hampshire for about two months in in the fall. It's not like it didn't happen. Her her fall has been confounding. A lot of people want to tie it to the Medicare for all there may be something else going on. What is very interesting to me all week? It's been looking at this question of gender because in New Hampshire more than any other state probably in the country it has a tradition of electing women. The office it was the first state in United States history that had a full female delegation to Washington. Is You know the senior senator from this state. Jeanne Shaheen choose the first woman in American history to serve both as a female as governor Senator and the second is the other senator from the name of Your magazine and so I've been curious where is is gender going to play. I talked to a lot of women. Here who really really want a woman nominee and they were confused about where exactly they should go Warren was not that obvious. Choice in the end this campaign and I think that probably is a factor in if I played this game but it is a factor any any Cobra Shar for example. Clarity Iowa she was clearly the story. She was clearly out of the race because she wasn't Warren. Obviously I do think would be doing a lot better here in Nisa the thinking that a lot of people have this. I'm going to go to cut three just for my producers that this is this is what a lot of women here would hear men talking about women candidates in general. This is our colleague. Donny Deutsch sharking on morning. Joe About warned on Friday. Take it with her. Is it certain. There's a certain strident to her. That do we want to invite her in to our bedrooms in our living rooms every day for four years. I think she has the same issue burning as I don't think it's a gender issue. I think it's a likeability issue and you know I think we have to be careful. I think an amazing woman would be a great antidote to John's point earlier a different definition of strength. If you weld strength the strength but in a different way but I I don't think Elizabeth Warren problem has been that. She's a would the likable thing. Right I don't get it because she actually reminds reminds me of all the other soccer MOMS on ice to soccer mom. She actually seemed quite likable to me. I don't get that but that is the thing that's hung on her. It's very gendered critique because Bernie Sanders and she if you compare them which one is sort of more invite him to dinner. I don't know but I'm not sure that she loses that fight but she is losing the fight for the to being the lead in the progressive wing the messaging of it is hurting her. Absolutely if you talk to Democrats they say that they like Elizabeth Warren. She's not unlikable. That doesn't bear out when you speak to voters and it doesn't bear out in the police now. Some of them say well. I like her a lot. I'm not sure she's my first choice. That's a different things. Yeah that's not the thing that's being hung on her. What is happening is just you have a structured race and she'd have to pull from other people and so far the other candidates that she might pull from someone like Joe Biden is getting those votes if they are being pulled their pulled? Oh by people to judge I think that is the known factor that that wasn't anticipated. I think right now we also have to remember. I know we talked about this. A Lot. More here in New Hampshire Iowa New Hampshire or a tiny part of the electorate it right now the name of the game. It's having enough money to stay in this for the next several contests a month from now. This race will look entirely different as it moves onto Nevada and South Carolina Super Tuesday. And so. That's what the Amy Klobuchar fundraising number was so important. If she can stay in it. Yeah you don't know what comes after Biden can only go up. Big Question is what happens to warns. Yeah absolutely and do they have to keep going supposed to Super Tuesday. Has Like one hundred thousand states in California. Don't Walsh Pals at my pal wrote a piece in the nation about the ratio worn and she writes the following from the moment cable network switched from her caucus night. Rally speech to Biden's Warren has been virtually erased as the fight for first replace continues into Thursday. I've watched Cable News and Cable News Channels mentioned Warren only in passing if at all MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell had been one exception featuring during an interview with Warren Wednesday night and Thursday. She was hosted by Chris. So there is a meeting it back to the other side of that. Media factor is advertising. So whenever I go to a city you you know in these elections. I watch a lot of local news and there are a lot of advertising in from Tulsi Gabbard. Who all over TV? I didn't see a lot of advertising Elizabeth Warren. So she's not getting the free we media out of cable news coverage and she's not getting paid media a lot of it at least from what I saw in New Hampshire so far. So is this a media problem as much as it is messaging problem. You know what I think about when I'm here in New Hampshire is in two thousand eight. When Barack Obama came out of Iowa with this huge head of steam and he seemed to be steamrollering to the nomination? We've got to New Hampshire. They headed debate. That was what Barack Obama said to Hillary. Clinton you're likable enough. Hillary speaking of likeable and two days later she shocked everyone including including the media and beat him in New Hampshire and set off that cage match to the very end with Iraq Obama. was you know one for the history books. So the whole issue of women and likeability has played out here in very very prominent ways. And we're seeing at once again in New Hampshire on the question that Johnny brought up that you addressed. So here's the thing. Is it an issue of ability polity. We're just an issue in New Hampshire and everywhere else of people being terrified to nominate the wrong candidate. Everyone wants to be president trump. They're looking at this field. They're not sure who the right candidate is do that. That's why we've seen this kind of muddled factor and Elizabeth Warren probably there is a fear that because Hillary Clinton Twenty sixteen did not beat president trump even though everybody expected affected her to was it. A factor of gender and is it wrong is not the best idea to a nominate a woman. That's a woman did not beat him last time. I think that is one of those things that people. We're trying to consider when you're looking at this large field. Everyone's being a pundit New Hampshire two thousand eight race because that was also raised a talked about how you lose being able to be how you win because remember on the one hand for Hillary Clinton. She had that moment where she teared up the day before Mary she's likable again. Sort of acting. Additionally Women Leeway but Barack Doc Obama's yes we can speech was his losing speech in New Hampshire it ended up rocketing him forward because yes we can then became the defacto theme of the campaign so it it could be that one of the people who is an also ran in New Hampshire. Can you almost lose to win. That's right that's saying I mean the role that Particularly the role that women play in the state and the crying thing from Hillary was about gender was about how do everyday as a woman how you get up as a woman. It was a huge moment for her obviously led to that major comeback. One thing. That's interesting about these comebacks. Is that this with Warren is set up for one. She set up for when here but she's not even talking about that and she's not out there. Earning it and nor is by the way Joe Biden right out there earning at the same time we talk about Joe Biden because he's an in an awkward position where he's he's pulling you the third or fourth and he really needs to win but I want to get to before he could tell you. WanNa talk to amy because she you know the audience that we had that was in studio for us or in Studio and what we call or studio the other part of this building that was watching it was pretty unanimous that she had the best debate does she had the strongest performance.

Why The Times Published a Photo of Drowned Migrants

"The migrant crisis on the US Mexico border continues to confront political leaders, from the White House to congress to the debate stage. The latest development reports of horrific conditions for children at detention centers in that photo of migrant father Oscar Martinez Ramirez and his young daughter Valeria, who drowned in the Rio Grande that photo helped spark action under this week on Capitol Hill. House speaker Nancy Pelosi fought with Republicans and members of our own caucus to add language to an emergency aid Bill, that would further hold the Trump administration accountable, but on Thursday, the speaker said, House Democrats would reluctantly pass the Senate Bill, which included one billion from border facilities, and close to three billion for migrant children. It passed three hundred five votes to one hundred and two votes. Joining me tonight, Dan ball. Chief correspondent for the Washington Post Susan page Washington bureau chief for USA today, coral Hulse chief Washington correspondent for the New York Times, and author of confirmation bias and Kimberly. Atkins, senior Washington news correspondent for WB. You are Boston's NPR news station. Susan, you're writing a biography of speaker Pelosi, she moved forward on a Bill. She didn't wanna pass why. Because it was better than nothing that getting the four point five billion that would that would go along way to helping this terrible situation with migrant children, who have been separated from their parents was worth the cost of taking a Bill, that had been negotiated on the Senate side and was opposed by some members of congress. This was this was a vote that she she worked. She has a divided caucus on this issue. But I think that portray this as a big loss for her is. Incorrect. She held control over caucus. She got it through because she thought it was better than the alternative of letting go down. What's the price she pays Carl with liberals who are frustrated that they took up a Bill passed by Senate? There's a little cost to this. But a few things went on there. I totally agree one hundred percent with you. This is what happens in divided government at some point, you have to make a deal. This was a Bill negotiated in the Senate between Democrats and Republicans. This was the and what it allowed them to do. I was actually surprised they could get to a Finnish here. What are the loud them to do was to be able to go home and say, listen, we've really addressed this crisis? And I always say to it's not a bad thing for Nancy Pelosi sometimes to get attacked from the left. You know. It shows cheese being a pragmatic moderate manager, the house was it perfect. No. But it was an accomplishment, and they were able to get it together. Those votes were pretty strong and she complied with the Hastert rule, which we all know she had more than half of her caucus. Voting for this Bill. Does the Trump administration continue its hardline policies, we've seen a shakeup at the department of homeland security border patrol short and they do they see this as a winning issue? They say that border security and being tough on immigration is what's going to get President Trump reelected. It's what's gonna keep Republicans in control of the Senate, and they're not going to give that up or anything. They're going to push even harder. We've already seen them labeling Democrats as wanting open borders, really attacking them for, for policies like wanting to give illegal immigrants healthcare. They see this as their biggest issue that helps fuel them forward in twenty

"Five seventeen seventy six is our phone number. The the mainstream media was full of commentary on many many sides about the president's imminent impeachment. For instance, these are the opinions of Lawrence O'Donnell of MSNBC. The former Nixon council who turned on Nixon and help drive him from office. John dean, Kimberly Atkins who writes for the Boston Herald alley Vel she of. CNBC? I believe Representative Joaquin Castro who's a democrat of Texas. It's his twin brother who's running for president along with all the other Democrats in the world, anti glowered Princeton and finally Carl Bernstein Pulitzer prize winning reporter who helped to an earth the Watergate scandal that led to Nixon being driven from office. Here's there some Asian history means anything in the Trump era. If precedent mean anything in the Trump era, Donald Trump will be must be impeached because of the crimes prosecutors say he committed in the Michael Cohen case, I think what this talent today's filings show that the house is going to have little choice the way this is going to start impeachment proceedings. House members find impeachable offenses. It is not just the right thing today it their duty to do to bring that and let the Senate vote as the Senate vote. Are you in a position to consider discussing impeachment in congress? I think we have to be at four fronts you have conspiracy. You have you have obstruction. You have campaigns finance, and you have the emoluments and we beginning to see that. It's not just a shoe that's going to drop. It's going to be an anvil. It's just what is going to drop. Right. And it seems to me that if the Democrats do not pursue this vigorously, they will be in some ways held accountable for abdicating their responsibility. It seems to me that part of what? And this goes to I understand the politics that goes to the moral question, the ethical question democracy is at stake. It certainly looks like they are the kind of offense would call for impeachment hearings into the conduct of the president of the United States. Okay. Really really, actually Jerry Nadler, who is the very very, very liberal Manhattan. Democrat who is going to be the new chair of the House Judiciary committee has been pretty specific that he does not want to pursue impeachment. He hasn't ruled it out. But he doesn't want to pursue it. The point is they're all waiting for this envel- to drop. What is it exactly that they expect? Because honestly, do I believe the president looks good with all these exposes? Of course, not of course, not it looks terrible. But there is a difference between looking terrible and making mistakes and doing things that are unethical and being impeached and removed from office, especially with the Republicans having gained two Senate seats in the midterm elections. And people voted at least in part on Donald Trump being the issue. It's going to be enormously difficult enormously difficult for the Democrats to get nineteen. And that's what they need nineteen Republicans in the US Senate to vote to remove a president of their own party. Now, I'll tell you who else actually agrees is the Wall Street Journal, which is been increasingly pro-trump. The Wall Street Journal has an editorial that says wrap it up Mr. Muller, and I generally agree with it. It makes the case that the sort of slow, drip, drip, drip of information. I is not serving the country. It's not serving Bob Muller's 'cause they should get everything out there summit up wrap it up and let the country move on. And I'll tell you James Komi seems to agree with that. He does he not only completed his two days of interviews with members of the house, which is they wanted to get in right before the Democrats took over the house. This is still in hearings run by Republicans. Of course, the Democrats said it was all a waste of time. But Komi not only went through that. He also appeared over the weekend with Nicole Wallace and the ninety second street y in New York, which is a prestigious and very enjoyable place to speak. I've spoken there. It's great. And there's always an informed audience and people participate. And that was the case with James Comey, and he was basically answering questions from Nicole Wallace of MSNBC. She used to be an aide to President Bush, George W Bush, and here's what they're entertain sounded like. The president of the United States right now, an unindicted co-conspirator. I don't know. Not in the formal sense that he's been named in an indictment where you can actually say that this defendant and named others or others by pseudonym conspired together. And that's how you formally named someone who's unindicted co-conspirator. But if he's not very certainly close given the language in the indictment in the in the filing that the crimes are committed at his direction. So he directed crimes to be committed. Is he just not yet in trouble for them? I don't know the answer that because I can't see where the investigation is either the sun this New York's investigation or Bob Muller's investigation. So I don't know. Okay. That's probably a very straight answer. Which is one of the reasons that we need. The director Muller who has special counsel Muller now to wrap this up and get it done. Now, a lot of people are guessing that my releasing these memos regarding sentencing and the crimes of others like Michael Cohen, and Paul Manafort, Michael Flynn, who are already cooperating with Muller and Manafort, there's some question about whether you really cooperated that he may not do a final report that this is going to be all that he puts out there. But does that mean impeachment is in the offing, here's James Comey? I hope Donald Trump is not removed from office by impeachment. Country off the hook and it would drive into the fabric of our nation. A third of the people believing there was a coup. And we need a moment of inflection where we all get off the couch and say that is not who we are in a landslide rid ourselves of this attack on our values. And if we in a way short-circuited that with an important legitimate process of the constitution. I worry that. We wouldn't be letting ourselves off the hook and away, and we wouldn't have the moment of clarity that we need in this country. That said if the facts were there and the legislative. House of congress think it's appropriate. That's fine. Okay. What he's expressing his he hopes that that President Trump will not be impeached. Look one of the reasons for this. And smart Democrats will tell you this. If President Trump is somehow driven from office and Mike Pence becomes president of the United States. And he will there's no grounds at all to go. After Mike Pence as clean as the proverbial hounds tooth. And if Mike Pence is forced to take over and Trump is driven from office. Pence will win in a landslide in two thousand twenty especially if it happens someone close to the election. This is a sick fever dream of the left the dream of impeaching President Trump. It will not happen. It shouldn't happen. I think there's an overwhelming consensus among people on the right people in the center, and yes, even people on the left that it will be better for the country if we move on. But what about the specific charge? Against President Trump. We will get to that. And some of the details that have been revealed and some of the details were revealed in James Komiya interrogation as well. The interrogation of Komi all that coming up on.

"That would send strong message that were displeased with what they're doing and finally on the president's nomination of William Barr. I it's been noted that he has an expansive view of executive power. And when I heard that I thought, oh, he may have trouble getting rand Paul's vote for confirmation, and I correct? Is right. I'm concerned that he's been a big support of the Patriot Act which lowered the standard for spying on Americans. And even went so far as to say, you know, the Patriot Act was pretty good. We should go much further. I'm disturbed that he's been a big fan of taking people's property. Civil asset forfeiture without a conviction. Many poor people in our country have cash taken from them. And then the government says proved to us where you got cash, and then you can get it back, but the birds on the individual, it's a terrible thing called civil asset forfeiture. And he's a big fan of that. I haven't made a decision yet on him. But I can tell you the first things that I've learned about him being more surveillance of American is very very troubling Senator rand Paul Republican from Kentucky as always, sir. Thanks for coming on and sharing views much predate it thank you. When we come back how much legal and political perilous President Trump facing, and we'll the new democratic house able to resist calls for impeachment mix. Welcome back panelists here, Eddie glove junior. Princeton University Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan Kimberly Atkins chief Washington correspondent for the Boston Herald and Jonah Gober senior editor at national review. We went back into the way back machine from the campaign. Here's a a great Paul Manafort quote during the convention that now you just have to see two years later. So to be clear, Mr. Trump has no financial relationships with any Russian oligarchs what he said. That's that's obviously with our position is all right. All right. We're a long way from their Kimberly. Really? Yes. We really are. You always have they say, there's always a tweet. There's always a quote when it comes to Paul Manafort, obviously what we saw this week. Usually wouldn't filings come out, and they paint a picture of what's going on to call them. Speaking indictments, this is like a shouting indictment of the broad category. That Robert Mueller is looking into including these ever denied connections with Russians business deals with Russians at President Trump on the campaign trail denied having. And if people have been as it's been shown in these indictments lying to congress lying to investigators about that that is a big problem for the president put up sort of the the quick bullet points of Michael Flynn of the Michael Flynn sentencing memo from earlier this week, plus Michael Coen's, the Michael Flynn that we learned that there are three investigation that he's been cooperating on the mother probe and undisclosed criminal probe thought to be the attempted kidnapping of the of the Turkish of the of the Turkish cleric. And then a third undisclosed ongoing investigation. From the Michael Cohen cooperation agreement we learned of more context with Russian interest during the campaign more, discreet, Russian related matters. More context at the White House during two thousand seventeen and twenty eighteen and I think perhaps the most damning thing in there. Jono Jonah Goldberg the idea that his prepared testimony to congress which he knew was false had been circulated and among those in and around the president. Yeah, you get the sense that like the if you flash the cameras of the White House counsel's office this week. You've see Lloyd bridges and airplane saying I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue. Right. Because I mean, it just seem like the wheels. Not only came off the butts kind of flew off the bus and. I gotta say like just trying to take a step back from the craziness of the week. You know, I don't like the way we are talking about impeachment right now, it is impeachment is become or all of the stuff. We are basically outsourcing our moral or political judgment to legalisms as a conservative who I think has invested quite a bit of time and energy criticizing Clinton's and Bill Clinton for his behavior. This week is basically absolutely confirmed that the president United States paid off a porn star in a playboy model to hide them affair during a run for the presidential campaign and the response for many people on my side.

"So here's what's happening. We have these twin breaking stories starting us off tonight. Our panel is standing by. Because there's a lot more to talk about on that. But I wanted to at least get the headlines from tonight's Senate race the last of twenty eighteen in Mississippi before we go to Steve Kornacki for all of the numbers later in this hour, let's at least get the headlines from him Cindy, Hyde Smith versus the democrat, Mike Espy, our national political correspondent covering it. All tonight. Hey, steve. Hey, brian. Yeah. So look the bottom line here. Cindy heights myth, the Republican. She has one tonight's runoff. You. See fifty four forty six right now. Still a little bit of a vote coming in this might even get a touch closer. Mike Espy the democrat here democratic areas heavily black areas along the Mississippi River still coming in late eight points, maybe a little bit less will be the final margin in this thing. Look from the democratic standpoint, they'll say, this is the closest Senate election in Mississippi in Lee. Least thirty years. You gotta go back at least in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight to find one with a democrat was even this close in Mississippi what they were missing what Democrats needed to get them over the top. Look, they got strong black support. They did better. Democrats did in these. This is a suburb right here sodo county outside. Memphis, look at ten point jump there. Mike Espy versus Hillary Clinton a couple years ago. Look at Madison County outside Jackson here. Again, a five point jumped basically there just aren't enough suburban areas in Mississippi for Democrats is a heavily rural state. They got improvement in the suburbs. They got strong black turnout, but what was missing here rural areas. This state, particularly the northeastern part of the state right there Trump level support for Cindy heights. Mitt the Republican added all up together. Eight point win. It looks like a for city Highsmith tonight. All right, Steve we're going to ask you to remain on station. We're coming back to you later for now. More with our panel. Michael schmidt. Philip Rucker Kimberly Atkins, Frank fig Lewsey, Michael we have been quoting a piece of report. You did earlier this year that has come roaring back and become so important. And that was when Mr. Dowd, the longtime Washington lawyer worked for Donald Trump, the notion that he was mentioning dangling giving the briefest credence to perhaps a commutation or pardon to people remind us what you reported. Then why it's so important right now. So there were discussions many, many months ago last year between Dowd and lawyers for Mike Flynn and Paul Manafort, it might Flynn being the former national security adviser who plead guilty to making false statements in this investigation. And obviously Manafort, and that is something that Muller has been looking at himself Muller was looking at the question of why is it that the lawyer was offering a part in? Why was he discussing a part in? It was among the forty nine questions that Muller wanted to ask the president. He would fall into the obstruction bucket. So that was not in the responses to president sent just a few weeks ago those were related to Russia, but sort of a larger looming question over the investigation in net continues to loom now over Manafort is would there be a part in? What would the president do about that? And how would he used at a thirty? And if he. That thirty would that be obstruction fill your interview dealt with Putin and Russia for part of it people have referred to Putin and Russia as the original sin of the administration. How was the president during that portion of the discussion? It was interesting, Brian as you know, the President Trump has been so unwilling to really challenge. Putin to criticize his actions or his leadership in Russia. But we asked him about. The Russia Caesar of the three Ukrainian ships and the Black Sea over the weekend, the ships and the crews which has been widely condemned by western allies and Trump said look, I don't like that aggression at all that it should be a cause for concern to Americans. He was intimidating getting briefing sometime tonight from his national security team and said he was considering canceling a planned meeting. He has with Putin in Argentina where I'm going to be later this week covering the group of twenty summit. They're the leader summit. Trump said he'll have to see what that briefing from his team like tonight..

"This Tuesday night, Michael Schmidt Pulitzer prize winning reporter, and one of the bylines on this latest story from the New York Times, Philip Rucker Pulitzer prize winning White House bureau chief for the Washington Post who interviewed the president among other things today Kimberly Atkins, Washington bureau chief for the Boston Herald and Frank Figliuzzi former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence who in the past has worked for and with Robert Muller. Michael I'd like to begin with you what kind of information was shared as far as, you know, by Manafort to Trump through the intermediaries of their specific, lawyers, and how did the president's. Lawyers. According to your reporting, take that information and weaponize at my word, not yours. The most significant thing we learned about this was that Mahler's. Investigators led by Andrew Weissmann were pressuring Manafort, this is according to manafort's lawyers to tell them what he knew about the 2016 Trump Tower meeting in what specifically the president new to the president know that his son was going to be meeting with Russians who were offering dirt on Hillary Clinton. And what did the president know about it afterwards? And Giuliani says that they hammered on Manafort about this Manafort who was in solitary confinement was being brought out for these interviews every few days with Weisman. Weisman Giuliani alleges is pushing Manafort to essentially a lie and say things that Manafort said were not true. Now, this is an allegation from Giuliani, but this has given sort of opened up a new front for the Trump legal team, which has launched new attacks. Now on Muller Giuliani saying to us tonight. That Muller was not overseeing Weisman properly that Weizman needs at dolts supervision now Michael in the lingo federal prosecutors when someone flips when they decide to cooperate they will say either they've chosen to work for the home team or they've joined team USA. And here's why say that was there any specific language that barred. Manafort from sharing this with team Trump or was it just considered such an outlandish thing that one would do while working for the feds. They didn't have to put it in writing. There's nothing that we know of in the agreement or legally that would have stopped this. But it's a pretty interesting phenomenon because there is essentially to people in the world who would control Paul manafort's fate one of them was Muller who if he thought Manafort had cooperated a lot could go to a judge and ask for a more lenient sentence. The other person is Donald Trump who has the power to pardon him or commute his sentence. And the question is is that why was it that Manafort was not telling the truth to Muller's investigators with this simple disagreement of facts, I saw something one way you saw another. Or was there something else going on here? Michael I got one for you one more for you than we have a couple of ravenous journalists, and at least one former fed waiting to get on the air. And that is how does it fit into the time line of known outbursts by Donald Trump vis-a-vis what he had just learned. About the status of the Muller investigation. Well about two weeks ago. Trump was prepared to send his responses to Muller after nearly a year of trying to negotiate about an interview. And what happened was was sort of three things came together. One was that they learned about the language in the Coursey plea. The other thing was is they saw the the unsealing of document in Virginia that showed that Assange had been charged and they were very surprised by this. And they didn't understand what was going on with Muller. The third thing was the Manafort stuff, the pushing of Manafort and this led that Trump team to put on the brakes and say, hey, we're not gonna send in our responses. Just yet the president's lawyers demanded a meeting with the Justice department and with Muller's team they went in and they air their concerns in Muller's team said, look, we're not out to get you. We're not plotting against you. And then the president finally sent his responses in now, Mr. Rucker of the four of us you were with. Resident most recently and that would be late today for your interview in the Oval Office. The transcript is fascinating, you found him in an expansive mood. He went after his head of the Federal Reserve. He relocated the sweeping and the cleaning of the forest floors and said, the California has particularly dirty forest floors..

Trump Mistakenly Calls Wildfire-Ravaged California Town of Paradise 'Pleasure'

"On until you come here. And what we saw at pleasure one a name right now. But what we saw we just left pleasure occurred, powerless, and what we just saw at at paradise is just just not acceptable. Jill all you have to do is focus in on the governor of California and roll the Larry David theme music, and it's it's done for you in advance. What did you make of his fire outing this weekend? Now, this is another example where you have the president who is standing out there in this moment of tragedy these moments that come happen again. And again, whether it's shootings or fires or other national tragedies where the country looks for the president to be the consoler in chief looks for him to say the right thing to try to bring the country together to try to bring some solace to those people who are suffering who have lost everything. And instead you have the president who stands up there and tries to blame California for the wildfires that it suffering while citing a conversation with Finland that nobody in that country seems to have any recollection of I'm not sure if the president thinks that people physically take rakes and go through the whole forest, Florida, clean it out. It's unclear exactly what he is picturing there. And then to be standing amid the wreckage. The town that had been completely decimated. And having to be reminded by reporters of exactly where he was standing. And where he visited, you know, I think it's an indication number one of some potentially shoddy staff work of them not making very clear to him exactly where he was repeatedly. But also, this example, once again of the president kind of finding ways it's just seems to be the way that he approaches things intrinsically, but but finding ways to nitpick and to criticize and mistakes that he makes that prevent him from being able to bring people together in these moments of tragedy. Indeed, the president of Finland said they never discussed the cleaning and the raking of the forest floor. People of Finland though can always be counted on they were on social media this weekend launching all kinds of different cleaning and raking parodies. After they heard the president's comments be that. As may our thanks on a Monday night as we start a new holiday shorten Kimberly. Atkins Jovan Jeremy Peters. Thank you so much for joining us tonight coming up more on the president's attack on the man in charge of the raid that killed bin Laden. John Brennan was in the situation room that night. He's standing by to join us now and later the performance grade, the president says he hates to give himself but awards it. Anyway, the eleventh hour just getting started on a Monday night.

U.S., China putting trade war on hold, Treasury's Mnuchin says

"In the bush administration says the us should have a strong hand since many other countries share its complaints about china but green says the us has alienated many of the other players around the table by threatening tariffs on steel aluminum and justice week automobiles there are far more countries who are suffering from chinese trade practices then us trade practices and therefore lots of natural allies but leverage isn't really with the us right now because the us has not lined up its internal and our allies are not on board because of the steel and aluminum and car charleston and now on the table david dollar of the brookings institution says the administration is also divided internally over what the rules of the game should be hard in the white house wants to see china fundamentally changed the way it deals with us companies manhandles intellectual property but others seem content with more modest goals like boosting sales of farm products and natural gas i think they confusing the chinese by raising too many different issues at once and not being chinese feel like they're not clear about the priorities and the chinese responded in a way that's easy will buy more soybeans this week treasury secretary steven mnuchin said the trade war between the us and china had been placed on hold in exchange for china's willingness to buy more soybeans and other american products but dollar says those additional us exports will be dwarfed by growing imports from china two thirds of these products are consumer products like televisions and smartphones computers you know people want these things so it's not a bad bad thing but just happens to be the math that this deficit is not going to go down in the foreseeable future in fact the us trade deficit with china which trump frequently complains about actually grew by some fifteen billion dollars in the first three months of the year the stakes for both trade and nuclear diplomacy are high and for the moment at least china xi jinping appears to be dealing the cards scott horsely npr news washington so is this the end of president trump's dealmaking with north korea's kim jong un or could the summit still happen to discuss these and other questions from the in politics for joined now by kimberly atkins of the boston herald and riaan salaam of the national review in the atlantic welcome to both of you.
