Deutsche Bank turned over Trump financial documents to New York prosecutors
"More trouble for the president another scandal that has dogged him actually now for most of his first term, here's the headline in the Times tonight quote trump's bank was subpoenaed by New York prosecutors in criminal inquiry. Here's the nut graph of that story. Here's how it starts the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, which means state prosecutors in New York state issued the subpoena last year to Deutsche Bank, which has been Mr trump's primary lender. Since the late nineteen nineties, they are seeking financial records that he and his company provided to your bank according to people familiar with the inquiry because of. Its long-standing and multifaceted relationship with trump Deutsche Bank has been a frequent target of regulators and lawmakers digging into the president's opaque finances but the subpoena from the Office of the District Attorney appears to be the first instance of a criminal inquiry involving trump and his dealings with Deutsche to lent him in and his company more than two billion dollars over the past two decades. Here's the amazing part the part that was the sort of draw jaw-dropping reveal in this story. Quote deutschebank complied with the subpoena. Out over a period of months last year, the bank provided the prosecutor's office with detailed records including financial statements and other materials that Mr Trump provided to the bank as he sought loans according to two of the people familiar with the inquiry. The subpoena to Georgia banks saw documents on various topics related to Mr Trump and his company including any materials that might point to possible fraud according to people briefed on the subpoenas contents. The bank's cooperation with the prosecutor's office is significant because other investigations that have sought trump's financial records have been stymied by legal challenges from the president and his family. This criminal investigation from New York prosecutors initially appeared to be focused on hush money payments made in two thousand sixteen to two women who said they had affairs with Mr Trump. But in a court filing this week prosecutors in the district attorney's office cited public reports of possibly extensive and protracted criminal conduct at the trump organization and suggested they were also investigating possible crimes involving bank fraud. And Insurance Fraud. So. To be clear, this is a big deal that the New York Times is reporting tonight this is not about the subpoenas for the president's financial and tax information that were litigated up to the supreme. Court are now kicking around in the lower lower courts by the present, his lawyers seek to delay compliance with these subpoenas. What this is about is a subpoena of Deutsche Bank. which has loaned two billion dollars mysteriously to the president over his recent business career. Subpoenas to Deutsche, bank related to their dealings with the president, and these are not subpoenas that the president has successfully fended off in these tied up in court. This is a subpoena to Deutsche Bank the bank has complied with. And they have handed over all of this trump related documentation to state prosecutors were apparently pursuing a multifaceted criminal investigation of the president and his business an investigation that is not bound by the Justice Department's Ninety Day rule such as it is nor are they bound by the Justice Department's rules prohibiting the indictment of a sitting president because those rules are federal rules and these are state prosecutors? Prosecutors not answerable to attorney general the embar. Not only is it news that they are pursuing this stuff in the way that they are it is big news that in pursuing this information about the president, they got it they got their hands on this stuff from Deutsche Bank. Who Knew.

Progress slow as urgency grows on virus relief legislation
"Saw potential step forward in the congressional negotiations for another corona virus relief package after weeks of Resistance Senate. Majority leader Mitch McConnell said he will support an extension of the now lapsed six hundred dollar federal unemployment insurance relief every week that is if president trump backs it. The American people in the end need help. And wherever this thing settled. Between the President United States and his team, it have to sign it into law. And the Democrat. Not Significant minority in the Senate and majority in the House. Is something I'm prepared to support even if I have some problems. With. Certain parts of it. So, Jake Sherman, you cover Mitch McConnell you know him very well that's as close as you'll get to seeing. Mitch. McConnell concede there where he effectively said, okay, I know this bill's been sitting on my desk for three months. I've got some problems with the Democrat bill from the house, but I may be willing to budge on that six hundred dollar weekly payment. The original counteroffer from Republicans as you know had been two hundred dollars a week. So if he concedes on that point, get six, hundred dollars a week of unemployment benefits to people who need it. So desperately right now does that mean we're going to get deal here. Will I think Willie? We're going to get a deal at some point in the next week. It looks not promising, but it looks possible. Here's the catch Mitch McConnell's not a part of these negotiations right now also for the first time in a long time, we could kind of say that Mitch McConnell's view here is a little bit tangential to the overall negotiations. Now Mark Meadows and Steven Mnuchin who have been in the negotiations have offered four hundred dollars a week until December fifteenth, which also by the way is a very big concession for the GOP people. We actually in playbook this morning give a blow by blow full with good chock full of quotes from inside of the negotiating room. During a two and a half hour meeting yesterday in the capital illustrating that there are a lot of issues that remain open to get corona virus for leads to American people just to give a sense about how far we kind of our from virus package, they are bringing in the postmaster general today to talk to the negotiating team about the needs of the US Postal Service because there is such a divide on how much the post office might need to complete its operations. So again, these negotiations are very fraught they're complicated and they're dragging on almost two weeks in I. Think we'll have another week at least before this bill is passing both sides want to get a deal before Friday. Jonathan Does Jake says Mitch McConnell's not involved particularly here. Specifically, neither is the President United States. He's taken a hands off approach to the entire negotiation sending US chief of staff. Mark Meadows and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin into do the negotiating here. How badly does the White House needed deal? Does the president recognized that more than thirty million people just lost that six hundred dollar week check that's allowing them to survive for the last several months urgency from the White House on this. There is really the president in the last twenty, four hours or so has insisted he is playing a role in these negotiations, but we know that is largely not the case that he has need. Deferred it to his chief of staff and Treasury Secretary and Jake don't certainly don't extra job outlining how these negotiations have gone. But yes, there was a keen awareness that this is a president who's facing voters in under three months and that Americans are hurting right now and then beyond just wanting to have a helping hand to those who have suffered so much during this pandemic of course, there's an towards his reelection chances here, and if unemployment numbers can you to go with the economic slowdown, economic recovery slows down that only hurts his chances. They are trying to push here. The they understand that they're in a bad spot have not gone well, the each day that it drags on is a bad day for this president who again is trying. So desperately to pointed idea of a recovery economic recovery as opposed to how he has handled her barracks better said handled the coronavirus pandemic to this point.

"Camp come dot cam or come either one works my understanding that positive about that, but you can check I watch a lot of cable news, and I I I saw this couple days grabbing, holding on to it not slip it in right now on MSNBC producer and she was a well regarded producer over there have been working their number years. She resigned last month couldn't take it anymore. And she published a scathing I don't know. Mopeds piece of resignation letter of full resignation letter and she publishes earlier this week. I've been holding it for a couple days and she blasted, not just MSNBC. But the entire television news industry for blocking diversity of thought in content while amplifying things that fringe voices and events love to hear all because it pumps up the ratings. No kidding. Wow. I'm stunned Toe learn this, Uh, her name is Arianna put Carrie. I believe and she publishes piece and she said, My colleagues are very smart people with good intentions. The problem is the job itself. It forces skilled journalists to make bad decisions on a daily basis. Wow, my shocked face again, She said her colleagues and MSNBC sought content that would boost the network's ratings rather than inform viewers. You're kidding me. Ratings have something to do with this business context and factual data are often considered too cumbersome for the audience. Another just dumb it down, Yell, talking points, everything in bumper stickers. She added. Occasionally, the producers will choose to do a topic or story without regard for how they think it will rate. But that is the exception, not the rule. Due to the simple structure of the industry. The desire to charge more money for commercials as well as the ratings bonuses that top tier decision makers earned. They always relapse into their old profitable program inhabits. As it was told to me many, many times in my career. It's show. Business show. Business. It's an age old dried nothing new Here. All the commercial networks function the same. That's also true whether it's fox or MSNBC or CNN or pick it doesn't much matter. The the deal is to pick to content out that you think your particular demographic is goingto like you want to be judicious with that you want to be honest. I try not to be. Partisan or too partisan. I tryto But in my opinion, you know falls word lace or lays. Word falls. I should say it. So you know, I'm not going to change it just to gin up. Ah topic and I try to speak in other than bumper sticker nonsense. But they all sell fear. Fear to the lefties on that side. Feared of the writings on that side. Just keep mine. It depends on what scares their target Demo. That's what you're going to hear. That's what you're going to see. By the way, John Dempsey. John. Hello? Yes. Can you hear me? I can hear you now. Yeah, there's a little probably little knob. Okay? You gotta turn that up and down. You know, I'm just I don't know what your setup is. I'm just saying, Hey, I keep my my volume down are the ways you'd hear me coughing and things. So when you call on May it takes a second for me. Okay, Physically, go and turn it up. I didn't mean to touch a nerve. No, you're not touching a nerve. I'm just explaining what's going on. Okay. But did you read her piece by chance, and one of the trade journals. You see her resignation letter That is just not did not did. I just hit the two or three little paragraphs of it, But it is a It's a scathing piece. And I think her career trajectory and cable news has changed. I would say so. Yeah, I would say that when you leave that way. You just can't go back again. Watch the bridges that we are burning because she will be off. Maybe she's moving into a different part of her life where she doesn't want to go be a segment producer for MSNBC any longer, But you know, it's not something that I found surprising. I'm just surprising how how force If Chrisley she decided to burn the bridge down rhetorically, obviously. So good luck to her in our future endeavors. Santoyo, the president of the Illinois Restaurant Association, is concerned that Mitch and Nancy Pelosi are not going to get this done with helpful Mark Meadows and a lot of our fine restaurant tours.

Trump Again Assails Mail-In Voting
"So. We have a new phenomenon. It's called in it's called mail in voting. We you send your. Wall. Terms of of. The kind of millions and millions of ballots never. Because if the pandemic that bigger massively big. Send tens of millions of ballots to California all over the place to WHO's going to get them I have a friend lives in Westchester send applications that his son passed away beautiful wonderful son young man passed away seven years ago he called me said I just got I just got a ballot. Probably Robert Probably died seven years ago somebody got a ballot for a dog somebody gotta balance for something. You got millions of ballots going nobody even knows where they're going. You look at some of the corruption having to do with universal, mail in voting absentee voting is okay. You have to apply you have to go through a process you have to apply the mainly same good. And they're sending out applications. Delon means of ballots an. Applications you. No way you can go through a mail in vote without massive cheating. You know you could have a case where this election will be decided on the evening of November third absolute selection. Two months later, two months. What's wrong with the property mailing cow cited many months later you discussed by because lots of things will happen during that period of time especially when you have tight margins, lots of things can happen. Get the outward visible frustration of the president when you presented him with the facts about absentee voting, he's tried to make this distinction between absentee voting, which he has done himself mail in voting distinction without a difference most experts say, did you walk out of that room Jonathan with the feeling that if he loses the vote on election night or the couple of days after even once the mail in ballots are counted that he would accept the result. I think. You probably see a repetition of what we saw in two, thousand eighteen when in Florida, that's a race that I think people should go back and revisit the how you wanting to see what you think the president might do off the election. So there's a very plausible scenario in which the president is looking very strong on election night because he has convinced his supporters that voting by mail is unsafe he get a lodge in. Vote during pandemic. And some of these states, some of these key battleground states it takes awhile to count them. Pennsylvania's good example, and if you start seeing scenario in which in the days off the election, the in vote starts to come in and it stops to train more and more towards Joe Biden. By suspicion based on previous behavior is that president trump would call for a halt to voting and would try to litigate in in various states so that's where I think this is heading.

Michigan tries new approaches to coronavirus testing
"Michigan was one of the State's first at bat against a huge outbreak of corona virus. Michigan hit its peak in April reporting a high of more than eighteen hundred new cases on April. The third new cases remained above fifteen hundred for days that month Governor Gretchen whitmer declared a state of emergency by April first she closed all schools throughout the academic year hospitals were overrun even as workers faced layoffs and paycuts thousands. Of medical workers came down with the virus as they struggled to treat patients, and by the end of the month, the state ranked third for the highest number of coronavirus fatalities in the country Michigan struggled to bend the curve, but Michigan came through the curve bent. Now, the question is whether Michigan can stay out of the red zone and the state has seen a few smaller waves since the worst of it this spring, there was the outbreak last month that. Harper's bar the popular haunt for Michigan State University which reopened to an unexpectedly large crowd on June. The eighth local reporters found young patrons lining up less than six feet apart, and then packing the dance floor like they would on an ordinary non pandemic night. No masks to see in that picture state health officials later link that bar nearly two hundred new infections and today Michigan posted one of its higher totals of statewide new cases for the past couple of. Months and that's concerning especially because everywhere in the country right now, educators are trying to figure out how to get education going again it's basically every state and in some instances, every school district or even school for themselves at Michigan, State, in East Lansing, they're exploring a combination strategy that's going to be new to them, and that might be new for anyone else and it starts with a spit test developed at the university by neuroscience professor named Jack Lipton this man. The kit costs around three dollars a piece, and as you can see, it's pretty simple. You can do this in the privacy of your own apartment or dorm room you put your sample in the vial with the Little Barcode you seal it in the bag and Wallah your part is over the lab at Michigan State will take your sample and combine it with others in what is known as pool testing, which maybe you've heard about recently, the idea behind pulled testing is that it can help labs do more way more with weight less instead of having each person take their own. Separate test you pull the samples from a small number of people about a dozen and you run a single test on that pool of the pool turns up positive only then do you need each person in the pool to take a test but if the pool turns up negative, you're done the single test covered a dozen people in a place where you expect a lot of negatives. Pool testing is remarkably efficient at Michigan state. They're going to step further than that. Each volunteer who takes a spit test goes into separate pools of about ten or so people so think about it like. Two teams. You're Miami Dolphin and a Seattle Seahawk, or you're Houston rocket and in Minnesota Timber Wolves choose your metaphor. The point is if two pools come back with positive results, it can only mean one thing. The lab just finds the person who belongs to both pools using a handy grid like this one, and then recommends that that person get a follow up diagnostic test. It's like playing Bingo be six Bingo you might have corona virus. That's what Professor Lipton plans to do with samples from MSU volunteers testing two thousand of them every day and referring any apparent positives for an individual diagnostic test. Now, the third and most unusual part of this plan has to do with sewage scientists are discovering that they can spot a rising rotavirus cases early on by texting. Communities, Wastewater Michigan State, professor, Joan Rose and her team have been testing the campus wastewater. Since April she says, they noticed a peak in the virus that lined up with the news about an outbreak at a college hang out which demonstrated that there sewage diving expeditions worked I made that up I don't know if they're actually diving. For the testing this fall, the idea is to sample the wastewater from different places on campus so that they can get hyper local data if they can get good enough at sampling and turning around their result in a timely fashion, their work could act as an early alert system for Michigan State perhaps, even at the level of individual buildings. So you've got the pool testing with the affordable spit kits you've got expanded. Diagnostic testing. But literally just for those people who appear to be positive or just playing turn-up sick and then you've got the wastewater testing which increasingly looks like a functioning means of getting a warning in time to react if the plan works, it could help the university find and contain outbreaks. If it works the plan could help Michigan State and it's sixty seven thousand students stay on campus and have something like a semester. Joining us now is the aforementioned Dr Jack? Lipton. Of Translational Neuroscience at Michigan State University Dr Lipton. Thank you for being with us. We've heard about pool testing I want you to tell us a little more about it and why it it specifically helpful in this instance what what about Michigan State makes it a perfect candidate for the pooling of spit. What would you think about full testing end and Michigan state one of the things that you're that is really important to understand that the resources that we have is that university are fairly limited. Bright. But we're not a multinational corporation. So funds are limited resources are limited and pooling allows us to. have. More. More test being done with the same amount of resources or with less resources. So in this case, if we're dealing with supply chain issues with testing if we can test ten people with reagents that we would need to test one person, then we are were saving a lot in terms of of supplies, and if we don't have to run ten tests and we can run one test, we save a lot of time. So if you can save time and you can save supplies, you're going to Yeah. Ultimately conserve and that's really what our goal is and this. This works 'cause you're not expecting a large proportion of people to have this thing right. So generally speaking a bunch of these pools, we'll come out negative. Right. pools if you if you have about ten people in a pool in your expectation is maybe seeing two or three out of a hundred people. Show up positive than most of your pools are going to be negative. The more the prevalence increases the more the rates of infection increase. Then you're going to have more and more positive bulls. If one out of every ten people are positive than a pool of ten, most likely is going to have a positive individual in it. So you have to really balance pool size and prevalence together in order to come up with the right balance to save resources and save time. So the this actually could have broader implications There's a Wall Street Journal op-ed that you wrote about a previous test not this one that we're talking about, but it was a concept of pulling in you set across the United States tens of thousands of similar academic research labs have the expertise and equipment to help the country test for covid nineteen. If even one tenth of these labs joined the effort we could. Test an additional five, hundred thousand to one million samples a day. Your larger point here is that there are ways to get to more people and and then figure it out early rather than what we're in right now where there are some places where people are waiting in excess of seven days for typical test results in a in a concentrated environment like Michigan state you can. You can see things early and intervene. Absolutely and I think it's really important to note when you're talking about the pet that we put together. The vast amount of resources and know how that existed the academic laboratories universities across the country. Each one of the things that we've proposed was to develop biomedical National Guard and utilize all of these individual laboratories across the country and have them be organized through the federal government in order to be able to respond to pandemics or other natural disasters with biomedical know-how and that if we could get something like that done if the next administration is interested in doing something like that, we can be. Proactive instead of reactive in these kinds of situations. Wow. That's incredible because you just answer the question I was going to ask I was going to say, Hey, what can government do to take advantage of these kinds of resources and you just answer that I just want to say that again, a biomedical National Guard what a great simple idea resources all over the country run by different people but the the government of the United States providing the centralization for the data and the distribution. If you think about all of the laboratories and universities that were shut down as a result of the pandemic so many people were were sitting home like I sitting home on on zoom all day. If we have opportunity to come back into the laboratory and help. We can do so much in terms of trying to not only develop new new treatments and and working on new methods of detection, which is what our laboratory did during during April we can marshal all of these resources all. Know How that exists in order to to. Attack this problem in a concerted and coordinated way. Lifting. There's not a lot of great news about Krono virus, but I have to tell you after this conversation. I'm optimistic that there are people like you around this country who are actually in this moment while everything looks as grim as it is finding solutions that are going to help us see the other side of the coronavirus. Dr. Jack Lift Lipton is the chair and professor of translational neuro size. I don't even know what that is. We'll talk about that another time at Michigan State University. Thank you for all that you are doing and good luck to you at Michigan. State, we'll stay on top of this with you.
FDA Nears Decision Authorizing Covid-19 Treatment With Convalescent Plasma
"There is a decision near on authorizing covert nineteen treatments with something called convalescent plasma even seen some ads about it on TV where celebrities say that if you've had covid nineteen, you can help be part of the solution by donating blood that can be turned into convalescent plasma. What does that mean? So. When people recover from this illness, they develop antibodies against the virus and you could take that blood in separate plasma fraction out of it in give that to people that are in the hospital sick with corona virus with the idea that this antibody will help them recover in. There are multiple clinical trials going on right now, there is some data from China that's coming out and we're really evaluating to see whether this is. Where I work at an academic medical center and some of my patients have gotten convalescent plasma. So this is something that we hope will work in May be a way to deal with the severe severe cases and get them out of the hospital quick prevented from going on a ventilator but we want to see the data I I haven't seen unequivocal evidence yet that this actually works, but we are very hopeful WanNa see the data.

Biden unveils $775 billion plan for child care, elder care and care for people with disabilities
"Biden announcing his plan, his $775 billion plan. To offer childcare. And elder care. Basically offering anyone who's a parent. Taking care of a child. Government childcare complete like instant and then anyone who's taking any any parent. Who has taken care of their parents, elder care And A Biden plant $775 billion is just a gigantic Gigantic mess. How's he going to pay for this? He claims he's going to do it by taxing those evil rich people, which we all know we're running out of them and running out of ways to tax them, But that's not going to stop the Democrats. But yesterday I happened to catch this yesterday. While I was awaiting the press briefing. I tuned into Fox because I knew they were going to carry the whole thing. CNN didn't carried until the questions started coming up. MSNBC was dipping in and out of it because they want to interpret the White House press briefings for you. So I know the Fox or C Span are going to run it without interruptions. So there I am tuned into the five and the very brilliant Greg guts smelled was opining on Biden's $775 billion plan. And what I have completely missed in the buying plan was the name of it. And this is just amazing, and it is truly a microcosm. Of what the Democrats are all about. Just the name of the plan tells you everything you need to know about Joe Biden and the party. He would lead and gut, Feld explained it justly. Here's the name of the plan. The Biden plan for mobilizing American talent and heart. To create a 21st century care, giving an education workforce. So my question is, is his staff intentionally creating titles for things that Joe Biden couldn't remember. Because of that title got an any longer we would have to pre empt special report who came up with that? What working group in an office and came up with that garbage. It shows you that 95% of the people that work in government Could not get a real job because they're in copping. It also shows you that even the even the sentences in government are bloated. It's embarrassing. Yes, it is embarrassing, and and they should be embarrassed, and Biden should be directed to find the nearest exit. But you know what? They're not going to get him out right now. 105 days away from the election. This is the guy you have. We're less than 50 days away from early voting taking place.

Mo'Kelly responds to former Trump adviser Roger Stone calling him a racial slur during interview
"And you have questions. In fact, I have questions during the program. During one of the breaks. I was told Eric if he could get the What Roger Stone allegedly said and want to get to that in just a moment. What would you do an interview like that? I have certain responsibilities. And if you watch any good reporter and I'm not saying I'm a good reporter, but there's a technique you watch report like during a White House press briefing. And the president may say something personal may make a personal insult. Notice. They don't respond to that Their job is to get their questions asked and get an answer. My job as I see it. Was to keep Roger Stone on the phone. And regardless of what may have transpired, regardless of what person that may have felt about what he was saying, my job was to keep him talking. For your benefit as the audience and my benefit to have that conversation. And it's not always comfortable. And since I'm processing, quite sure different people heard different things or wanted to know different things. I'm going to turn this over now to to all his sharp producer wallet. Take it from here. No, uh, first of all, fantastic job That was quite possibly one of the best interviews that has ever been on the Mo Kelly show. Hands down. Great questions. Fantastic. I okay? Maybe I heard wrong. I need to go back and hear the audio. I swear this man Off the cuff said. I cannot believe I am arguing with this Negro on the air. Okay. If you did not hear that portion of the conversation, I was pressing Roger Stone as faras his commutation. That his relationship in proximity to the president probably had something to do with the president showing him favor and he he was just talking about how unfair the justice system was. Well, that's the likely follow up question. How can you talk about an unfair justice system when you are benefiting from that same justice system? If you're not the friend of the president, then You probably don't get the commutation. I think he took exception to it. And Eric, are you Are you queued up on your end? Yeah, I got it. Okay. This is where everything went. Left, everyone pay attention. Let's all listen to this together. Hit it. I do believe that certain people are treated differently in the federal justice system. I do absolutely believe that. But I also believe that your friendship and relationship in history with Donald Trump weighed more heavily than him. Just wanted to make sure that justice was done by AH person in the justice system that you were treated so unfairly. There are thousands of people treated unfairly daily. How your number just happened to come up in the lottery. I'm guessing it was more than just look. Roger, right? Rose, You're arguing with me. I'm sorry. What is that? Roger. Roger. I'm sorry. What did you say? I'm sorry. You you argue with him. I thought we were having just a very spirited conversation. What happened? Would you not like to continue the conversation, sir? I hear that the line is not dead. You're back. I don't know what that is. Well, Yeah, I was, uh, I was talking and you said something about Negro, so I wasn't exactly sure. Our did not Okay. You know your mind your mind? I okay. Well, we'll let the listeners decide. Let me go to the next question. Then why? Whatever the next question No. Do you literally have ice in your veins? Well, let me put it on for you. How were you able to keep that going and keep your composure? How do you do that? I'm sitting over here losing my mind. I didn't know it first. I need to figure out this is what's going through my mind. I had to figure out whether he was going to each yet. And then when I had chest really think about it during the break, this is something I noticed if he honestly couldn't hear me, what is it? Someone says, if they can't hear you and in the middle of a conversation. Hello there. He didn't say that. It's just silence. And he obviously wasn't talking any exhale. I heard what I heard. And the audio is what the audio is, But let me tell you swallow what I felt about it. And this kind of I'm loath to talk about race on the Mo Kelly show. I'm loath because by and large people don't respect the conversation. They don't respect it at all. They want to hear what they already believe. They don't want information. They want confirmation. They want affirmation. And a lot of times. I always say I can show you better than I can tell you. I've had seven pressed to my count seven presidential candidates on this program either while they were running or sometime later in their professional history. Seven. We've had any number of senators, you have any number of Congress people. I've been in radio 20 years I have been a BBC political commentator for 10 years have been published in The New York Times. L A Times Chicago Sun Times and been on. Good Morning America. CNN MSNBC H L In MSNBC, NBC it just about any alphabet, Fox 11. I say all that to say not as a boast. But the only thing that I felt was true, honest and sincere. That Roger Stone said was in that moment that he thought I was not listening and all of my professional Crit accolades. All my professional bony feet days went out the window because as far as he was concerned, he was talking and arguing with a Negro. It didn't matter that I went to Georgetown University. It didn't matter that I did my interns on internship on Capitol Hill. It didn't matter that I've interviewed the best of the best in All walks of life. It did not matter because in that moment he was flustered. He obviously was angry and He? It was almost like, If you want to know how a person actually is. Well, get them when they think that the cameras aren't rolling. The microphone is off. And no one else was around. That moment was the closest thing we'll ever get to that with Roger Stone. He didn't think that I could hear him. And he seemingly turned to another person in that room and says something unintelligible in said something like I can't believe I'm argument this Negro. Can we isolate that, Eric? Do you have that isolated anyways? We can listen to just that. What was she like arguing with me? One more time. What was she like arguing with me? Well, I don't know what the first few words but this Negro is clear as day. I don't care what precedes it. It is what it is. But But 12 here's my main point. That's why I'm low to discuss race on this program, not because Because I think it's a silly conversation, and people don't actually want to have a sincere conversation. Because not a day goes by which someone says to me on some love with my email and you see the twat posted all the time. You're not on Ko Phi, but four or you didn't get into Georgetown but four Or you don't deserve to or you're only there because of every single day. It's a perpetual audition to prove myself having nothing to do with my actual professional accomplishments. And I can say that, but in that moment it is demonstrated for everyone to see and everyone to hear. So going back to how did I keep my cool? That's Tuesday in America for me, that's every single day, but my job was to keep him talking because people wanted to know. Was he going to get a trump tattoo? See, We don't get that question if I reject or I chase him down this warm hole of Negro He denied it. In that moment, he lied about it. What is there to discuss? I know him on the radio. I know that there's going to be a podcast. I don't need to chase after that. Because I knew
Roger Stone calls black radio host Mo’Kelly a racial slur during interview
"Me on the line is the Roger Stone. We're right in the middle of a hot and heated debate about whether there was a material lie or whether there was any knowing intent to deceive or mislead the federal government. And we're in lock pitched battle the moment Roger Stone you were saying I was saying that there is no underlying crime here. But again, we have an MSNBC that I would be charged with espionage, treason, conspiracy against United States, money laundering, mail fraud, wire fraud. Aiding and betting a conspiracy cyber crimes, including unauthorized access to a detective, computer cyber crimes, including receipts, distribution of stolen material, Yet I'm not indicted with any of those, although you will read in the media that that indictment was coming for almost two years. So where are the serious crimes here? And while we're at it, there will be a full investigation into bay in October of 17 which by the way, is three months after Robert Mueller already knew there was no rush inclusion. When asked about this before the Senate Judiciary Committee ride. Rosenstein said that he did not approve the investigation into Roger Stone, which we know from the document that he did on October 26 40 17. So in other words, Rosen seeing Guess what lied to Congress about a material matter. What's he being charged? I don't know. Just standard. That's my argument. You know, I do believe that certain people are treated differently in the federal justice system. I do absolutely believe that. But I also believe that your friendship and relationship in history with Donald Trump weighed more heavily than him. Just wanted to make sure that justice was done by AH person in the justice system that you were treated so unfairly. There are thousands of people treated unfairly. Daily. How your number just happen to come up in the lottery. I'm guessing it was more than just look. Roger, right? What was she like arguing with me? I'm sorry, was that Roger. Roger. I'm sorry.

Report: Unpublished White House document puts 18 states in the coronavirus ‘hot zone’
"Learning new details about an unpublished report from the White House Coronavirus Task Force. It runs counter to the happy talk. Constantly hear from this administration instead. This previously unreported document warns that eighteen. Eighteen states are now in the red zone and that they need to enact much stricter public health measures, including mandating masks, limiting gatherings to less than ten people and ramping up testing in areas where coronavirus cases have spiked doctor. She's The director of the Harvard Global Health Institute told the Center for Public Integrity. Quote the fact that it's not public makes no sense to me. Why are we hiding this information? From the American people? This should be published and updated every day. Joining us now is Dr. as she saw director of the Harvard Global Health Institute. Welcome back to the show. For being with us. Thank, you for having me on. When you look at these three vital of information needed at any point in the pandemic, but certainly while much of the country sees their caseload spike. What is your theory on taking the CDC out of that hospital patient reporting data on not releasing the White House Coronavirus Task Force recommendations for those states that are surging and on shielding or keeping the CDC officials who could offer scientific advice to everyone as Chris as said at the end of issues so eloquently everyone is struggling to figure out the back to school pace. Is Really Hustling. What the strategy coming out of our federal government is! We are in the middle of the pandemic. Things are getting worse clearly in the United States, and we need to be guided by science and evidence, and we need to be hearing from our government scientists, and these reports that that coronavirus task force report, which I think is a really high quality report. It was produced by American tax dollars. The American people have a right to see the American. People have a right to hear mar scientists the American people have a right to the knowledge that they have aid for. We're not getting that right. When you hear Dr Fao, and you see the forums in which he is having to turn to communicate directly with the American people, or we also hindered by the fact that this White House is putting such a heavy emphasis on disinformation that the good information has to struggle and seep through the cracks to get to us. Well there's no doubt about it that there is a lot of misinformation out there. Some of it propagated by the white. House. But a lot of it coming through various channels on facebook, etc, and misinformation in my mind is the sort of we are facing two big challenges, virus and the misinformation around the virus and some days I think I can't decide which one is worse than the other. It's a huge problem and fighting misinformation while we're fighting pandemic makes it much much harder to protect the American people and keep people safe. You know it's such an interesting point to just just muse on I mean where would we be? If everyone had trusted all of the scientists from the beginning I mean. Where would we be if we'd really heated all the stay at home orders if everyone were wearing a mask, today and social distancing. Do you think our numbers would look different? Oh my goodness I think if we had done with the scientific community has been arguing for if we had ramped up testing and tracing from early on if we had started wearing mass when the evidence became clear that mass wearing was work. And where would we be with? have far fewer cases. We have much more of our economy open. We'd have far fewer Americans dead and we would be looking forward to opening up schools this fall with social distancing and with controls, but it would be very different economy in a very different country. We this is all self inflicted wounds as far as I'm concerned.

"Thank you for being part of this conversation tonight. What what happened this weekend. In el paso american gun violence in general is an international story some of the international response to what happened this weekend will surprise surprise you. We've got a live report on that specific international reaction coming up next stay with us the grief and outrage from the attack in el paso and the attack dayton and the attacking gilroy they all reach far beyond the borders but of the el paso attack the twenty twenty. Two people killed in el paso on saturday. We're now learning from forties. Seven of those twenty two people killed were mexican nationals and that that means the government of mexico is now responding on behalf of their own citizens and they're responding with anger for more. Let's go to n._b._c. News correspondent cal perry who's in tapachula mexico account rachel. We saw headlines here that were similar to those around the world with one slight difference. The words of the gunman were splashed lashed all over the front pages hispanic invasion killing of mexicans and that led to this extraordinary press conference yesterday from the foreign minister who talked about american erkin gun violence he talked about hate speech but he went a step further saying that mexico may take legal action and try to extradite the gunman here to mexico now look. That's not very realistic but it points to what you are saying that the government is going out of. Its way doing something extraordinary to show its citizens that it will protect. Put this in the larger context last month. Donald trump threatened in this country with tariffs and so just a few miles from where i'm standing at the guatemalan border you now have eleven thousand national guardsmen standing on the mexican side of the border turning people around. Some people say that's doing the american bidding for them. Some people support it but it shows you. This tenuous position that the mexican government is in everybody here views views the u._s. as a country with a gun fetish. That is the words that people use here. The difference is and we talked to a kid twenty six years old just a few minutes ago. He got deported from the u._s. A few months ago he left his family behind in los angeles. He said he would do anything to get back there but in talking to his mom earlier today he said that the fear is now that that people will be targeted that is what has changed not the gun violence but the rhetoric that we saw from that gunman in the essay that is what people here are talking about rachel calipari reporting from southeastern mexico cal..

"Extraordinary obsession with every bleat that he admits and when you do this some people out there are listening and what they're listening for is to hear permission to say certain things and saying things turn words into deeds eventually the president is after all on entertainer we tend and lose sight of that fact and the entertainer feeds off his audience. Today he was feeding off a teleprompter and so he was relatively sedated but when he gets back in from an in front of his next audience it will be very interesting to see because the audience itself will not have reformed we know who is attracted to those auditoriums and those parks where he speaks and they will give him the incentive to revert to type so we're going to see how long this lasts with the president george. I was not surprised to hear radio silence silence from republicans on guns. It's the sound of silence. We've heard for almost a generation from republicans on guns. I am surprised that no republicans are speaking out about domestic terrorism <music>. I'm old enough to remember when republicans were pretty alarmed by anything with the t for terrorism word in it. I think that in fact a lot of the fear and anxiety about the national rifle association has limits. It's blitz to to say that there are limits to this but there are and in fact the n._r._a. Right right now is convulsed by a lot of internal problems in his losing some membership and all the rest but if republicans will actually read the two thousand and eight supreme name court decision and the heller case striking down a district of columbia severe law that actually said you could only have a handgun for personal <hes> defense if it was dismantled unlocked up and therefore was no good for personal defense there is nothing in the heller decision rightly insensivity red which i think the supreme court would do that would prevent the supreme court from affirming <hes> laws that would for example restrict certainly drums uh-huh that are equipped weapon to fire one hundred bullets and <hes> less than one hundred seconds or automatic rifles of the sort that we're talking about the excuse that the supreme court has spoken unsettled all this is no excuse at all and any you know you speak from the heart you get to the deep roots of everything we're dealing with but but but what is the prospect for change with half the country either reading george will said the the heller decision on guns or staying silent in the face of white extremism domestic terror. How far can we get half the country walking around like donbass. I mean it's a difficult question to answer. I think what we have to do is to get about the business of building a better world not so much focusing thing our energy and attention and trying to convince people to hold different sorts of commitments but to build a better world where they have to choose so it seems to me for example. I'm from mississippi right when when jim crow mississippi when when the jim crow south ended those who had been born in rear to be a certain kind of racist had to stop they couldn't walk around calling people the n. word in in public. They couldn't call people boy. They couldn't call my dad or my grandfather uncle. They had to change changed the way they live that doesn't mean that the society fundamentally changed in some ways but the we which they went about living their lives that world died and something else came came into being carrying the disease with but something else came into being we need to spend our time and energy not so much trying to convince folk folk because those folks have the country by the throat and they've had the country by the throat since the founding. It's time for us to build a better world world and say choose it or go your way unbelievable jordan eddie..

We've been having for the last two hours here because it's been fascinating. We've made a lot of connections. I would actually urge all communities to do this. Get together with some people. You don't know and consider a room because it's been illuminating. I'll send it back to you case our remarkable conversation and even an hour of incredible tragedy stories of wisdom and resilience. Thank you so much for spending some time with us. We have much more ahead as we bring you our two of our special coverage on domestic terrorism stay with us one count the shootings this weekend in el paso texas dayton ohio where the twenty first and twenty we second mass killings of twenty nine thousand nine hundred in this country. That's according to a database that tracks homicides were more than four four or more four people are killed not including the shooter but if you count all incidents in which multiple people were shot some counts as many as two hundred and fifty five mass shooting shooting so far this year just in this one country the sheer number of mass shootings in america means that we now have americans who i'll have experienced more than one themselves and i mean that literally not just statistically three of the survivors of last weekend's shooting in gilroy california were also themselves survivors of the 2017 mass shooting in las vegas. The three of them had actually met in a facebook support group for survivors of the las vegas massacre. They then attended the gilroy festival together. Were they survived yet. Another mass shooting joining us now from in gilroy california's m._s._n._b._c. correspondent jacob sober off jacob. Thanks very much for being here. It's good to have you here. My friend thank rachel. I know you spoke today jacob with a survivor of the garlic festival shooting in gilroy which left three people dead thirteen people injured. Let me just ask you. How's that survivor doing. How has it affected that person to to learn of the el paso dayton massacre so soon on the hills of what they just went through well. She's i spoke with a woman who was here selling honey <hes> at the garlic look festival and she just came from the hospital where she was with her colleagues and literally today still the wounds are still fresh from the mass shooting that happened here. We're just eight days ago six days before what happened in el paso and that's that's part of the reason that we wanted to be here tonight. There are other media outlets are cameras out here tonight but we felt like it was important to be here because we cannot view these events in isolation from one another. I think <hes> so so many nemo including folks in our business to do that. These are isolated incidents that we move on but this event is important to remind everybody that the shooter in this event was also a young man who before he came and murdered three innocent people including a six-year-old boy a posted about a racist manifesto and then came here and committed did those murders and so you know we want to talk about how to view these events in totality not just as isolated incidents that happen as one us because because they certainly aren't. You can't look at them separate from each other. You can't look at them. Separate from the language of the president and you can't look at them separate from the political system that we live in where as you said earlier in the program the n._r._a. <hes> contributed thirty million dollars to the election of president trump and he calls a member of the n._r._a. Good patriotic roddick americans and immigrants rapists criminals and all the other names that we've discussed this evening jacob on that point about the potential motivation of the gilroy shooter.

There have been obviously there's dane is a point of national focus because of what happened there but also because of it coming so closely on on the heels of what happened in el paso <hes> unlike in el paso there hasn't been as much of a focus because there hasn't been as much detail to report from in terms of a potential motive for the shooter or what might have led him to do these things. What can you tell us about. The heart of dayton was attacked the bar. That was the focus of the attack. If there seems to be any pattern any method that you can source in the madness in terms of us understanding what happened here and who was targeted yeah well the investigation very thorough investigation on behalf of our dame.

"The anti-defamation league and kristen piccinini former white supremacists now activists and author of white american youth joining us from el paso richard parker author of lonestar nation his new op-ed new york times this titled when hate came to el paso we'll start with you you just jump into this conversation about the intersection of rhetoric about the the the intersection of of the president's language the language in his twitter feed and the manipulation and the use of this language of an invasion is reported in the new york times tonight as part of his reelection strategy well i. I don't think you have to be some kind of scientists to draw a straight line between the president's rhetoric as obtained immigrations and the sixty million people in this country who are latinos the vast majority of them are citizens and what happened here in el paso which is my hometown on saturday. The president has used the word invasion at least sixty times in his personal rhetoric as the times has pointed out tonight. His campaign is running two thousand facebook ads with the exact same <hes> messaging and frankly i read the shooter's manifesto on saturday in the wake of the the the horror that took place right across the street here uh-huh frankly it could have been by the white house press shop. It was no different wow eddie well. Yes it's absolutely clear to me to to see a relationship between donald trump's rhetoric and what we just experienced but we just saw but i think it's important for us to ask ourselves the question why do why does he want. Do his people believe it's effective yeah right so it's one thing for us to kind of course one of the things we tend to do is exceptionally donald trump and one of the reasons why we do that in some ways to kind of displace our sins onto him the melodramatic kind of store he becomes the big bat monster the evil personality in our midst which which we can then kind of in some ways absolve ourselves of our sins by displacing them onto him but the question we have to ask ourselves. Why do they think this is effective because there there are people out here americans out here who actually find it compelling. This is a way of accounting for their own life circumstances. I'm not getting ahead because these people are jumping ahead. I'm not doing what is my children can't achieve. The american dream because big government is doing something on behalf of these other people right so we're exploiting people sense of vulnerability their sense that the country's changing that it's no longer a white nation and trump knows he's sitting right there in that sweet spot and unless yes we tell the story of the country in this way right then we're going to think that our only problem is true when the problem as i've said before is us right and i want to be very very clear when i say us a mean that in a general sense but i want the kids in el paso to know just as i've said to a black kids across this country that the problem isn't us never has been the issue at at the heart of this is an idea of whiteness that has over determined and distorted the very idea of democracy the one consistent assistant threat threat to all of this is a toxic idea of white identity and until we understand how it works how each it's rooted in our very history how can be exploited we will find ourselves on this racial hamster wheel over and over and over again <hes> the democrats spoke out forcefully and i don't know if they're getting it as deeply as that is but do you think the democrats see an opportunity to to change hearts and minds and turn the issue against trump will look. I think this issue certainly transcends politics. I mean what eddie is talking about is right and i think what we need to recognize..

"That's the panhandle you could get away with that state and breaking in the new york times a few moments before we sat down here tonight to be with you a story with this headline how the trump campaign used facebook ads to amplify fi his invasion claim reporting in the new york times about the deliberate campaign strategy the use of campaign dollars us to pay four messages on facebook amplifying his warnings his rhetoric but an invasion invasion. It's critical that we stopped the invasion estimate over a million dollars on facebook ads about immigration since march more than two thousand ads on facebook using that word invasion it is inescapable and the question is what the white house whether the white house these any imperative to do anything about it at all now that there are other parts of the country that are bearing the sharp end of this and whether any republicans republicans in congress to put a finer point on it the gun debate is is frozen because republicans are awol. There's an open question now. If republicans skins are going to be a wall on the question of white nationalism joining us now is democratic congressman veronica escobar of texas her district includes kids but walmart and el paso or saturday's mass shooting took place congressman escobar <hes> feel honored that you took time to be with us tonight our condolences of course to you and community. Thank you for making the time to be here my pleasure thank you for having me on rachel. We have been talking about a number of different aspects of what happened. In in your community we have been talking about the very difficult question about whether or not white nationalism has implicit support on the ragged edge of mainstream american politics we have have been talking about the president's responsibility in his own rhetoric and how it dovetails with some of what we have seen from the shooter we have been talking about gun policy in the prospects or lack thereof love for gun reform but we've also been talking about the fact that this is the worst terrorist attack in the most murderous terrorist attack targeting latinos in the modern history three of our country and this is something i know el paso is an eighty percent eighty five percent latino city your district heavily latino a lot of cross-border traffic and proudly so oh can you just tell us about how the the racial impact and the demographic impact here is resonating in your community and what you think the effect will be in the long run rachel. This is extraordinary community. One that has an abundance of love as you mentioned. We celebrate our location on the u._s. Mexico border we love the binational nature of our region <hes> and so <hes> you know it it. It is especially painful all gun violence is painful but it is especially painful that this seemed to be an intersection intersection between the epidemic of gun violence and the epidemic of hate that exists in our country. There's behind behind me. There's this incredibly beautiful makeshift. Memorial full of flowers rosaries crosses photos the the size of the crowd has only grown since i first arrived to go and be with our families and they are still so full of of pain but they're not full of hate. They're full of pain but they're not full of hate. The the president has use the words in the clips that you've shown that have caused a tremendous amount of pain that have fueled violence. Those words are still still hanging out there. He needs to recognize his role. He needs to recognize that those words have power. He needs to apologize and and he needs to take them back. We were told by law enforcement <hes> earlier that <hes> we have to be concerned about copycat <hes> acts of violence. It would go a long way for the president to say. I used racist language. I used words that a humanized people people and i was wrong and i take them back only after he does that. Should he be welcomed into our community. The president is we understand. <hes> going to visit your community. The mayor of l. paso has announced that the president is due to visit the day after tomorrow. In those remarks you just made and i know route speaking earlier today. You suggested the president at this point is not welcome in your district because of those past remarks. He's made that you've described as being so painful. What is your reaction tonight to the news that he is planning on coming to el paso and so soon.

We're all over it b._i. Director chris racing the f._b._i. Doesn't investigate ideology except when it turns to violence he went on of course to say at that hearing that a majority of domestic terrorism cases the f._b._i. Has investigated did are in his words what you might call white supremacist violence after the violence of this past week and this weekend the question is fully open as to whether the federal government right right now is doing all that could be done to prevent these shootings particularly shootings fueled by right wing terrorist ideology six former former senior directors for counter terrorism at the national security council six directors who served under both republicans and democrats as president they have now issued a statement in calling for urgent reform of the way the nation handles this kinds of threat these six counterterrorism directors are calling for quote a significant infusion of resources to support federal state and local programs aimed at preventing extremism and targeted violence of any kind motivated by any ideology or directed at any american community mm unity quote we call on our government to make addressing this form of terrorism as high a priority as countering international terrorism has become since nine eleven quote. We simply cannot wait any longer. Joining us. Now are three of the national security council counter-terrorism directors who put their names to that statement joshua tsar jolly and nicholas rasmussen gentlemen. Thank you all very much for joining us. I really appreciate you. I'll be in here mr rasmussen. Let me start with you. You're calling for domestic terrorism to be given the same priority status as countering international terrorism is that just because of the temporal urgency of these recent attacks. How did how did the how did the international and domestic threats compare in terms of numerical threats again. I think chris raised testimony in recent weeks in in front of congress was with answers that question for you rachel. He talked about basically a rough parody in terms of the number of investigations at the f._b._i. Maintains <hes> mm between cases tied to domestic terrorism including white supremacy and cases tied to overseas terrorist groups like isis or al qaeda and of course we've certainly certainly seen the death toll increase from these domestic terrorism cases so that lends urgency of the conversation and and what part of what drove the group of us to to write this produce the statement yesterday yesterday. Was this sense that we look to the f._b._i. To solve this problem for us the f._b._i. Is the preeminent law enforcement organization in the world and yet is chris wray said if they don't get involved until it gets to the point where there's violence involved and obviously there's much that can be done left of that before we get to that point when a gun has been fired or a bomb has exploded and that's what we're doing on the international terrorism side but not on the domestic terrorism side mr mr ali on that point to hear director ray say. We're not interested in looking at ideology. We're interested only when it turns to violence what we are seeing here is not necessarily looking particularly at l. Passos shooter not somebody who is a member of a group who had a patch and a vest said he was part of something not somebody who's going to meetings are turning up at buildings that could be identified as hosting meetings. Thanks for these groups. This is somebody who participated an online community was motivated had the resources to do. It said he was about to do it moments before he actually did. How do you intervene at that point and who does it for our government. That's the hardest form of a terrorist threat to stop. You don't have necessarily communications to intercept you. Don't don't have a long tail ahead of the attack. It's hard on the international level but it's especially hard here on the domestic level. That's in part because the trump administration has rolled back some of the efforts to get at this problem earlier you had countering violent extremism unit stood up at the end of the obama administration quite deliberately to tackle forms of radicalization asian not just by al qaeda by isis but this type two under the new administration there was an effort to take away grants awarded to groups trying to help with this part of the problem into focus exclusively exclusively on the international yesterday in terms of the f._b._i.'s.

Innocent people was that for generosity and forgiveness welcome back that was meribel latin one of the survivors of the shooting eating in el paso again. The shooting killed twenty. Two people injured more than two dozen others. Federal law enforcement has chartered a rise as we've been saying and white nationalist violence over the past few years they are now investigating this shooting as a case of domestic terrorism for more on this front front. We want to bring in our justice correspondent pete williams pete. How does that designation changed the work. They have to do the investigation in front of them. It changes the numb. It changes the people who do it. There's a special dedicated cell of people in the federal government who will do this of course it doesn't change the on the ground for texas. This is a murder investigation instigation for them and it could lead to murder charges in the federal system as well as seems pretty likely that it will so legally where it ends up. It doesn't change it much but you know because patrick crusius according to the authorities has been talking so much not only will this apparently be a strong criminal case but it will also be an insight to allow them to go back. I can look at the anatomy of this attack and we learned an interesting fact today. The authorities now say that patrick crusius left allen texas drove ten to eleven hours hours got to el paso in the early morning hours of saturday and was hungry. He got lost in a neighborhood saw the walmart and according to the police went head into the walmart eight then came back out and we assume suited up got his weapon and started firing so they have lots of information about him but but that doesn't that doesn't mean to inject any last minute plans on his part this is still being treated as it not as a premeditated massacre asoka on his part. The the desire to kill certainly was premeditated. He says in his own essay and i agree with jim fox. We shouldn't call it a manifesto. He says he's been thinking about this for at least a month but we don't know is whether he had chosen that target apparently it was el paso but did he choose that walmart walmart or was it a target of opportunity when he got to town looking for something to eat. That's something we're still waiting to find out all right. Pete williams our thanks people williams joining us from our washington bureau just weeks before the deadly mass shootings this weekend in july f._b._i. Director chris wray was asked in the u._s.

"The legal matters show. We did not Mr. non MSNBC happy Monday, there's a lot going on tonight. We have lots to get to. Because of that I want to get this particular I little bit of news out there right away because otherwise, I'm going to be all nervous and distracted about it, until I finally spit it out. So right off the bat. Let's just get this done here goes. A few years ago in two thousand twelve I wrote a book, it was called drift, the unknowing of American military power book about how the use of the American military basically got divorced overtime from civilian politics from our political decision making process in this country. Not exactly a screaming headline tabloid topic. I know. But I had something to say about that. And so I wrote that book and two things happened. When I wrote the book that surprise me number one, the book did very well, no one was more shocked about that. I was lots of people read it, it made the best seller list for long time, which is crazy. It's still sells a bunch the teach the book in all sorts of interesting places, which I'll tell you about some time if we ever have a beer together. So that was very surprising to me, it did great knocked me over with the feather. The other thing that happened. When I published drift is that I publicly and privately swore, I would never ever another book. I only did it with drift in the first place, because I felt like I had the idea of that book, the sort of the thesis of that book inside me like burning a hole in my chest, and the idea just wouldn't leave me alone. And I felt like I had to get it off my chest in order to be able to move on with my life. But honestly, it almost killed me writing that book, I have this whole other job. Right. It takes a ton of mental space to write a book. I said, I would never do it again. And I meant it quite ernestly. Which brings me to the thing I have to announce. It turns out, I meant to never write another book. I really meant it. When I said, I wouldn't. But I lied, the same thing happened again that made me write drift in the first place. It turns out, I had another idea other like thesis and other argument another, another case to make that was driving me nuts. And I was finding it very distracting. And I felt like I couldn't get away from it because it was really stuck in me. And as much as I tried to talk myself out of it, I realized that I needed to get it off my chest. I needed to spit it out get it down on paper. And so I have this new book, and I just got the cover from the publisher, which is here. As you can see it is called blow out, and you can see the subtitle is at the top there in smaller print. It's called blowout corrupted democracy. Rogue state Russia and the richest most destructive industry on earth. Cheery right. The cover is actually a bit more apocalyptic than the tone of the book itself. I will tell you basically, I have just written a book about the oil and gas industry and the consequences of that industry, which I think are a much bigger deal than we have generally appreciated both here at home and around the world. Among other things. This book may explain to you, why you might have noticed. I have been so unhealthily obsessed with Rex Tillerson and him being US secretary of state. It's also about some of what I think underlies, the Russian decision to attack or twenty sixteen election. It's also about some heroic, teachers and journalists and activists anyway, I hope you will like it. You can pre-order it as of today, the official publication date is Toby, I, but as of right now, this hour, you can, you can get it, you can pre-order it if you go to.

"With which he impugns opponents and undermines America's standing in the eyes of the world. And that is where we are today. Welcome back to morning Joe on this Friday, August thirty first. So with us, we have White House reporter for the Associated Press Jonathan Lemere, Republican strategist and MSNBC political analysts. Susan Dell, you NBC news Capitol Hill correspondent and host of Casey. DC on MSNBC Casey hunt and join the conversation, former Justice department spokesman and now on MSNBC Justice into Curie analyst. Matt Miller, White House bureau chief that the Washington Post and political analyst for MSNBC NBC news, Philip Rucker. And in just a moment, we will have new poll numbers from the Washington Post and ABC news, former US attorney for the northern district develop Bama and MSNBC contributor, Joyce bans and White House reporter for Bloomberg news, Jennifer Jacobs who interviewed the president yesterday in the Oval Office. So let's start right there. With the big takeaways, Jennifer, what did he tell you about the Muller investigation? Well, we asked him if he's going to comply with the subpoena, if he gets a Muller subpoena or if he would fight it and he didn't wanna talk to us about that. He he kind of sidestepped her out that and gave us typical answer, which is we'll see, but we're told that he that they have been discussing it, we were trying to press him on whether he will still sit down with Muller. It doesn't sound like he's going to go voluntarily. So we're trying to really corner him on whether he would fight a subpoena or not, and he just wouldn't go there. So Jennifer, you also talked about Jeff Sessions attorney general in your interview saying he's safe until at least the mid terms. Where did that sort of arbitrary deadline come about? We had heard Lindsey, Graham and other Republicans saying that they were urging him to keep Jeff Sessions as AG until the midterms. We said, hey, listen, are you gonna listen to your advisers here and do that? And he said, yes. And then we said, well, what about right after the. Midterms what happens in the days after. And he said, I don't want to comment on that, but he expanded a little bit more on what irritates him about Jeff Sessions. And it all comes down to the fact that he doesn't think that Jeff Sessions is going after Democrats the way the president would like him to. He kept saying the other side, the other side colluded with the Russians he mentioned Brennan and or and all these figures that you. You see him tweet about all the time that are clearly on his mind. And he would like Jeff Sessions to quote, do his job, just want them to do a good job. He wants them to go after these Democrats Miller again. So to window into the way president of views, the United States government, which is that his attorney general is there to protect him and not to protect the constitution. Yeah, two things you take that one, the kind of delusional state. He lives in where he thinks that people like Bruce or have committed a crime which is just absurd. There's no not many allegation of or has broken department of Justice rule. Let alone committed a crime. Second, this I did that the attorney general exists to prosecute and persecute. Donald Trump's political enemies and to protect him from any investigation prosecution. It is such a twisted view of the Justice department that is really contrary to any. What any previous president, how many pretty is present has the role and Jennifer, you're in your interview. Also talking with the president about John McCain, and we have a sound bite of that the way he's handled the last week or so. Let's listen. We had our disagreements and they were very strong. Disagreements disagreed with many of the things that. I assume he believed in. But with that being said, I respect your service to the country. You said he believes he's handled the last week. Well, we know Jennifer that the coverage of the last week has eaten him up that he John McCain is being lauded on television and newspapers, and by the Republicans in congress who worked alongside John McCain, what did you pick up off the president as you discuss John McCain, we asked him point blank, did you screw this up? The White House, tribute fall short..
