NBC/WSJ poll: Support for Biden has almost doubled

"NBC News Wall, Street Journal poll released yesterday, and support. For Joe Biden has almost doubled after just last week's debate the poll taken before trump announced he had covid nineteen has biden by fourteen, fifty, three to forty nine still with us our professionals. Steve Schmidt, Robert Gibbs Robert I am duty-bound to point out I think Hillary Clinton on this date in two thousand sixteen was ahead by exactly fourteen points with that in mind. What would your charge to your fellow Democrats be? Well I would. I would ignore the polls. And go full steam ahead on what you have to do to win this race next continue to assure the American people. That you're capable and that you've got a plan for implementing that. The. Change that you need to see in the White House but I think Lewis startling about that poll. This race has been remarkably stable Brian it's been stable for a really long time regardless of all that gets thrown at it, and so the NBC NBC eight previous polls, the average margin was Biden by eight percent in February it was Biden by eight percent in September. It was Biden by eight percent now it's fourteen. The American people got a good hard look at Donald Trump in that debate and they liked absolutely nothing of what they saw I don't think Joe Biden is going to win this race by fourteen points. The one of the last moments Donald Trump had available to him to begin to change the trajectory of this race in his favour not only did he miss that opportunity, but he actually handed a significant amount of support with now just four weeks left in this race to his opponent Joe. Biden. Mister Gibbs makes a great point Mr Schmidt and let's go further on. Politics. Steve Mitch McConnell is seventy eight. He is a polio survivor he is scared to. Of Covert nineteen by all available evidence politically, he is scared to death of not pushing through the third Supreme Court nominee what's going to happen? Do you think in the US Senate three Republican members down with positive diagnoses? Well look specifically when it comes to stopping a Supreme Court Nomination Brian you have to think about it like trying to rob a train before you can get to the safe with the gold on it on the train to derail the train you have to slow it down you have to be able to get on the train and so what the Democrats have to do is not be focused on delaying the hearings pass the election they need to be focused on delaying the hearings for the first day they need to push it back one day, and then once you can push it back one day you can. Get the second day, but the reality is is it'd be very difficult for the Senate to hold onto the time line because total recklessness of so many of these senators and of course, trump at the trump administration and all of the chaos that we're seeing play out over over this weekend, and then elect Wurley for the Senate I. Mean This is just a disaster I. Think Certainly Mitch McConnell understands. He's on the precipice of losing his Senate majority. It's almost a certainty that he will. It may be a wipeout. You see for example, Mike spn Mississippi Mike espy is in a very close race now you see. The Kansas Senate race, the Democratic candidate is points up there. So the it seems like the walls are collapsing on all of this. This was a terrible terrible week for trump and for all the trump of batters, enablers and accomplices in the United States Senate I, mean, it started with the with the debate and it got worse from there the. Senior leadership of the campaign scandalized there is a mutant in the campaign on Friday night. PEOPLE DON'T WANNA show up to work too terrified to go into the White House profound mistrust of their leadership, and then there's reports out tonight from the incomparable Gabe Sherman for example, a Vanity Fair talking about the divide in the family looking at how crazy trump's behaviors been. Over the course it is last weekend with Donald Trump junior apparently talent people that they have to try to rain man knowing what a disaster this is. So my view is this is all coming down the Walzer collapsing we're seeing that play out everything we're seeing trump do is from a position of weakness and the idea now that he's going to be able to. CAST himself as some type of hero for having defeated cove at I think is. A ludicrous delusion on the part of him Sean Hannity and his

Trump invokes executive privilege over entire Mueller report

"And we begin at the White House where the president today asserting executive privilege over special counsel, Robert Muller's full report on Russia's interference in the twenty sixteen election, all of this intensifying clash with congress over its investigation into the Trump campaign and Russia. The move came just before the House Judiciary committee late this afternoon. Voting to hold of the attorney general Bill bar in contempt of congress for failing to turn over Muller's unredacted report and underlying materials, which the panel head subpoenaed. We are covering all of this. And we start with the House Judiciary committee hearing, and it's chairman Jerry Nadler of New York. Today, we consider report recommending that the house of representatives hold attorney general William bar in contempt of congress for defying valid subpoena issued by this committee. This is not a step. We take lightly. It is the combination of nearly three months of requests discussions and to go. She aviation's with the department of Justice for the complete unredacted report by special counsel mother into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election along with the underlying evidence. I appreciate the fact that the department responded to the offer we made to them last week and met with us yesterday in the last minute effort to reach an accommodation. We heard the department out responded to them in good faith. And after always said and done we unfortunately were still unable to reach agreement, and we proceeded with our markup today is I've said before we remain ready and willing to consider any reasonable offer made by the department even. After today's vote. But if a letter I received late last night from the department is any indication I am concerned that the department is heading in the wrong direction. In response to our latest good faith over the department of Brunton announced that if we move forward today, it would ask President Trump to invoke what it refers to protective assertion of executive privilege on all of them subject. Are subpoenaed just minutes ago took that dramatic step. Size misapplying the doctrine of executive privilege since the White House waved these privileges long ago and the department seemed open to sharing these materials with us. Just yesterday. This decision represents a clear esscalation the Trump administration's blanket defiance of congress constitutionally mandated duties. I hope that the department will think better this last minute outburst and return to negotiations as Coequal branch of government. We must have access to the materials that we need to feel our constitutional responsibilities in a manner consistent with past precedent. This is information we are legally entitled to receive. We are constitutionally obligated to review. And I would remind the members that the mullahs report is no ordinary run in the middle document details significant is conduct involving the president, including his campaigns willingness and eagerness to accept help from a hostile foreign government numerous misstatements if not outright lies concerning these act those acts and eleven separate incidents of struck the behavior by the president that more than seven hundred former prosecutors have told us warrant criminal indictment. If congress is not entitled with full unredacted Muller report, one must wonder what document we would be entitled to exhausted negotiations with the department of Justice have unfortunately left us back where we begin with unprecedented obstruction by the ministration that has now announces intention to block all the Thames congressional oversight of the executive branch. It is our constitutional duty to respond. Let me be clear if we request we are requesting entirely. Within our legal rights receive, and is no different from what is been provided to congress on numerous occasions going back nearly century. But we do not need to go back and forth to find a precedent. As recently as the last congress under Republican control, the department produce more than eight hundred eighty thousand pages of sensitive investigative interiors pretending to its investigation of Hillary Clinton as well as balloonists other material relating to the rush investigation and other ongoing investigations that production included highly classified material notes. FBI interviews internal text messages law enforcement memoranda. With respect to grand jury information in past cases involving Gatien's of presidential misconduct or misconduct by other high-ranking. Public officials the department of Justice as a matter, of course, the permission of a court through at least relevant information to congress if not to the public notably. This include several cases that were not impeachment inquiries, including the investigation into former agriculture secretary, Mike Espy and the Iran country investigations as well as other investigations that were not governed by the independent counsel law. But no matter the fact that the law and history clearly support the release the congress of this kind of information the Trump administration has taken obstruction of congress to new heights. Unfortunately, the attorney general has been all too willing to support the president in this endeavor. I would also like to respond to the concerns often raised by my good friend. The ranking member. Yes, how can the committee hold the attorney general in contempt for merely complying with the laws on the books, and how can we hold him in contempt when I have refused an offer to allow me to see certain redacted portions of the report, the answer's simple. I we issued a valid subpoena for the full report. And all of the underlying evidence department is come nowhere close to satisfying obligations under that subpoena. Those comments by the chair of the House Judiciary committee, Jerry Nadler of New York, again, the final vote along party line vote twenty four to sixteen and at the conclusion of the hearing chairman Nadler telling reporters, the US what he calls facing a constitutional crisis over the mullahs report from the Wall Street Journal there is this quote, the dispute centers around the unredacted version of the mullahs report and the underlying evidence some of which the Justice department says by law cannot provide because in. In part. It involves grand jury testimony that is secret Democrats subpoena the material last month saying it was necessary for congress to independently examined the material and the basis for Mr. molars findings. The journal goes on to write quote at the Trump administration's abroad, refusal to cooperate with any oversight request from democratic committees elevating tensions between the two branches to levels unseen since events of the magnitude of President Bill Clinton's impeachment, the Iran contra arms scandal during the Reagan White House and Watergate a move that invokes executive privilege is all but certain to provoke a constitutional challenge in the courts more details at wsJcom more from today's hearing Doug Collins is the ranking member of the House Judiciary committee. Mr this. The folks watching this log continues last week ours you and the fellow members of Jewish Democrats to respect the history of this committee business accordingly. We still have across southern border still. Feeling property here. We are wasting another bible week legislating calendar against the majority's war against the administration. Today, we are meeting to consider a resolution to hold attorney general Bill bar in contempt of congress. So let's take just a few moments and go through this. What is the justification for holding attorney general bar in contempt of congress for apps failed to abide by the special counsel regulation? No, he went above and beyond what the regulations far by transmitting the full report to congress with limited. Reductions could it be that the attorney general failed to accommodate the chairman's demands for information. No, he offered to let the chairman involve other democrat leaders review, the less redacted at the department of Justice, including a ninety nine point nine percent unredacted volume own strokes in an odd move for anyone demanding access to information. The chairman and the other elected Democrats giving access declined to view that report. Attorney general also volunteered to testify before this committee about the reports conclusions his role in sharing the report. And as we all witness, the democratic gangs force the attorney general to forego the schedule hearing last week on Monday just farm an offer to meet to discuss accommodations yesterday. They made a reasonable offer to avert this. And once again, they were rebuffed and the chairman the client, perhaps the end, the Democrats believe that there has been an unreasonable delay in the Justice farmers response to they're saying, no, that's not true. Either. In the chairman is moving to this contempt resolution at lightning speed. It has been less than twenty days since the chairman now subpoenaed documents from the Justice department when the oversight committee held Eric attorney general Eric Holder and content more than two hundred fifty days had passed between the subpoena and the committees vote to hold him in contempt more than four hundred and fifty days passed between the committee's initial request to the Justice department and the committee's contempt vote, dude Isra Democrats are moving more than ten times. Faster than oversight did with holder. They have moved from request to contempt vote in only forty three days. And yet the Justice department is still at the negotiating table waiting for the Democrats to arrive in good faith, while this rush without any valid legislative or administrative reason, we can only assume the Democrats that are led by the chairman have resolved to sully the Bill bars. Good name and reputation to accomplish to go. First Democrats are angry the special counsel report and did not produce the material or collusion's. They expected to pave their path teaching the president feel compelled remind everyone the report found offers to do so no one from the Trump campaign knowingly conspired with the Russian government, and you can't help. But notice the phrase Russian collusion has vanished from the democratic talking points and left a void in the narrative. The special counsel did not make a prosecutor determination structure in which was his job attorney general and a deputy attorney general did so according to their mandates law enforcement officials while giving no credence to the office of legal counsel. Opinion regarding that a sitting president as a result, they're angry their anger nations chief law enforcement officer and his dad had yelled acidy decide the didn't support charges for obstruction investigation into something. The president. Second Democrats are afraid of what your general will fund when he completes his own going review of abuses, the Justice, including how the Russian investigation began. Multiple news reports have suggested those conclusions could be explosive good in careers and could even lead to criminal prosecution rather than face that the Democrats resolve to neutralize Bill bar by attacking him in the office in his in his career. This is the first what a cynical mean-spirited counterproductive irresponsible staff. It is. Meanwhile, our economy urging unemployment amongst already groups historic low a recent Washington Post poll shows cratering support for impeachment, but Democrats have no plans, no purpose, and no viable legislative agenda beyond attacking visit ministration the house is more than four months into a democratic majority. How many bills passed by this committee have been signed into law chairman poor? You see reason I asked if you recognize the craving and insincere politics. It seemed to be yielding, no. No dividends for the American people. We've talked multiple occasions improved at last week's pharmaceutical market that I stand ready to work with you to promote solutions. I will not though become a bystander as we say, the attorney general, and this committee our democracy deserves better. Those comments from Republican Doug Collins of Georgia, the ranking member on the House Judiciary committee and on Twitter. The president wrote the following, quote, everyone wants to know who needs to be accountable because it took up to two years of our lives talking about the Russia involvement at proved no collusion and people want to trace it back to see how all of this happened treasonous hoax that the president at real Donald Trump. And at the White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was asked about the president's use of executive privilege. Caroline, chairman Naylor says at the White House already waived executive privilege. He said the moment they reveal documents Muller, they waive the privilege that's black letter law. So how is the White House still claiming turning Adler would be a little? A bit more on the law. I'm not actually like understand better than he does. The attorney general is protecting information. Grand jury information confidential information had he cannot release the fact that the chairman knows that and continues to ignore it is absolutely absurd. What's not forget. This is the same guy who was to frayed to ask the attorney general questions himself if he can't do his job, and he can't understand basic rule of law and uphold it then he shouldn't be in

"Seventeen percent Cindy, Hyde Smith getting a little over fifty percent. That's interesting. If it holds if it holds we are very early in the night. But it's interesting. Why is it interesting? Let's just go back three weeks ago. Mike Espy got only thirty four percent in this county. You see the party vote was twenty four percent Chris McDaniel, you would assume most of that would go here if it goes there. Mike Espy can keep a competitive, but I just wanna say again, we're at seventeen percent could come in from this could be mostly from a democratic precinct. So he's running close so far in five minutes. Ten minutes or two hours. It could be very different. So we're just gonna watch fill in throughout the night. Republicans think Anderson they think will win this race. They think they will what by six seven or eight points. But they're nervous. That's why the president went in there. Twice last night. John king. Thanks. We'll check in with you. Shortly back now with the gang, David. What are you gonna be looking for just in terms of there's also they come in? Well, what John was saying about if the African American can be sort of supercharged in a way that would be one thing that keep. Sb in the fight here. So that that's one place. I'm looking for in those heavy predominant African American portions of the state because what we saw in the midterms, but we actually saw quite frankly throughout twenty seventeen eighteen is this ability for turnout, especially on the democratic side, and some of these contests to be supercharge. And if indeed that can happen here, then Espy has a chance here but eighties. I just I can't wrap my head around Anderson. We are three weeks after the election. We are just after the thanksgiving holiday weekend for voters to be back in the mindset of what we saw three weeks ago with record-setting kind of turn out to me. I think is a very tough challenge. Also, obviously issues race have been involved in this campaign throughout in Mississippi's history, right racist, all Dan campaigns involved in politics. It's basically the dividing line in that state it essentially determine. Rens? Why Republicans switched from the Democratic Party? And why Republicans now you saw Mike Espy in that in the first camp and get about fifteen percent of the white vote. He probably needs about thirty percent of the white vote actually be competitive and over the last mini-cycles we've just seen Democrats unable to get anywhere near that on a lot of these races. Obviously Doug Jones was able to get that in that race in Alabama. But in these southern states, it's just horrid for Democrats to get white voters to vote for them. And it's also true. The Democrats really have any infrastructure down in a state like Mississippi. It's not a state like Georgia that's been doing some work there groundwork. They're registering voters. It's really in some ways been left for dead by Democrats. And so I think that's going to really affect them tonight. The also there obviously some Democrats hoping for Doug Jones. Right. This is a different rates are it's a very different race. I mean, first of all, you know, you look at ROY Moore who was accused as an adult of having sexual relationships with teenage girls that's a strike against you. And even though Cindy, Hyde Smith has been very imperfect candidate there is nothing reaching that that was that was a real problem for them. And this is more rural state and also the aren't CD your point has been really getting a get out the vote effort. There was a report that they have more one hundred more than one hundred people on the ground today. Just trying to get out their voters because they don't want this to become Alabama. And it's not likely that it will..

"And I guess the last question here is that agree to which? What what white voters end up doing? I mean, there's the question of black turnout. But when we saw an Alabama was Doug Jones was able to win about three in ten white voters which was enough to just edge over with with high black turn out and enthusiastic black turn out. And the question now tickly is talk about things like segregation academies, which are extremely whites. Widespread among white mississippians. What that does to their decision making? Yeah. And I think that that has been the dynamics of this race have been sort of playing out around that white voters will do I talked to a couple of the other day who are reliable Republican voters their mainstream Republicans, but they were thinking about voting for Mike Espy because of the comments Smith made they felt like it was an embarrassment to the state and Mike Espy needs those types of people to be making those decisions how wide spread that is. I think we find out, but Cindy Smith is is banking on not enough of those people turning out, but the other questions sort of whether white voters just don't show up. They're not motivated by city Smith. They don't feel great about her. They may feel good about President Trump. But is that enough to get them to the polls?

"To Lawrence county academy and later on send her daughter to Brookhaven academy which opened the same year as Lawrence county academy you right that at a certain point in Mississippi. The state even created a kind of school voucher program to help white parents send their kids to the schools of their choice. Given all that. Is it all that surprising where Hyde Smith went to school, isn't it actually pretty common for the region? Oh, yeah. It's very common and these all white private schools. They they still exist in a lot of them are still all white or nearly all white and some of them still even football angel seed mascots carrying confederate flags so it's common. And it's something that I knew about growing up. I knew the academy in my town in Columbia, and I knew the white parents in the town who sent their kids. There are a lot of them. I heard them say, you know, I send my kids there because I don't want them to go to school with black heads. So this this is a non thing here. But it just kinda goes a long way towards explaining this culture of white supremacy in which people like Cindy, Hyde Smith up where it's so your BIC witness that a phrase like her public hanging statement could insurance her lexicon. What has been the response to your piece? I mean, do you get the sense that this is controversial among the traditionally Republican voters that Mike Espy would have to win over to win the race. A lot of people have expressed a lot of shocker this. But. Most of them are either younger or they are people who are not from Mississippi and Serrano smiliar with this. They're having some people have said, well, you know, what does it matter because you know, this was her parents decision not her decision, which is true. But there is the point that she did send her daughter later on to Brookhaven academy, which is a school that has nearly four hundred students and as of two thousand fifteen twenty sixteen only had one black student, despite the fact that Brookhaven is fifty five percent black. So that legacy continues at the end of the day even as this race drags on. Do you get the sense at her bid is actually in jeopardy? I can't say for sure, but the fact that President Trump will have come down here for the third time since October, and the fact that they are sending him to rallies here today. The fact that so much money as flooded at the last minute this race is definitely unusual in Mississippi to have that question even lingering over a Republican USA candidate,

"And why is he holding rallies? The dude. Game. Really after thanksgiving. Here's a runoff election. Because neither there were three candidates running to Republicans and a democrat. Nobody got over fifty percent rules in Mississippi say he got to go to a runoff. So now, we've got Cindy Hyde Smith who was appointed to the position Republican running against Mike Espy democrat. He is an African American candidate. If he won he'd be the first African American Senator from Mississippi since reconstruction. That's why there's an election on Tuesday. Okay. That's why there's an election. But that's not why the president is going there. The fact that the president the Republican president is having to hold not one, but two campaign rallies for a Republican Senator in the ruby red state of Mississippi. That's the story Senator Cindy Hyde. Smith is facing a surprisingly stiff challenge from Mike Espy in this runoff, mainly because of her own missteps, although she's made several racially insensitive remarks. That's one of the reasons the race has tightened. She is doesn't have the kind of baggage that ROY Moore did in Alabama and SP. Let's just explain who he is. He's the former agriculture secretary in the Clinton administration. He comes from a very prominent African American family in Mississippi and former congresswoman congressman also what he's trying to do is run the Doug Jones playbook in Mississippi. Doug Jones was the democrat who against all odds won a Senate seat in Alabama. But the interesting thing is the same democratic strategist is running Espy's race as ran Doug Jones race. So he's trying to use the same playbook, which is get a certain amount of the white vote. Twenty five to thirty percent perhaps and then boost African American turnout to historic levels and most people I talked to on both Republicans and Democrats say that Espy's job is not impossible. But it's extremely difficult. But again, the fact that President Trump is taking a Monday afternoon in jetting down there to do to rally suggests that Republicans at least are hearing footsteps maybe their footsteps in the in the in the way back. But they are hearing. There's no doubt about that. But Donald Trump loves to campaign. He loves to hold these rallies. He wants to be able to say that he he'd her over the finish line. He wants to be there to take credit. He might have done this, even if she was maybe he would have only held one rally, but I think he would've gone down. Anyway, this is a state where Donald Trump can make a difference. This is the kind of very red state very pro-trump state where he can boost Republican turnout and as Mara says for President Trump to hold a campaign rally is not really a sacrifice. You don't you don't need to be. He doesn't make a big excuse. No. I mean, he had his groove heading into the mid terms because he was doing all these rallies in early between Labor Day and election in mostly red states where he won and where he was very popular. And then the midterms happened a lot of Republicans lost. He lost the house the president kind of lost his groove. He's going to get his groove back. But the other thing to remember Mississippi. This does not affect the balance of power in the Senate. Republicans are going to have either fifty two or fifty three votes. There it affects it's not we're not at the tipping point. It doesn't affect the majority. But fifty three is better than the balance of power. It's going to be a Republican majority. No matter what the other thing, we should mention just so people don't forget about it is the following Tuesday. We're going to have another runoff in Georgia for the secretary of state. There's Democrat John barrow he's in a runoff with Republican brand referenced burger Donald Trump has already been tweeting about this race. And the reason this race is so significant is that this whoever wins would replace Brian Kemp who's the governor of elect he was the secretary of state before? And don't forget that Georgia politics has been consumed with this debate about voter suppression voter fraud already in this runoff election for secretary of state whose job it is to oversee elections and ballot security etcetera. The Republican is already accusing the democrat saying if he wins his policies would lead to. More illegal voting than ever. We are going to keep an eye on all those results, and we will be back in your feeds on Wednesday with the news along with the latest in the democratic leadership fight election.

"But the reality is do Republicans want her to be representing them in the Senate. I would say that's tough. Actually, Mike Espy is a moderate. He's also an African American. He has also African American, you know, my father is from society. And so when you talk about the old south, I think Mike Espy is Representative of Mississippi. He so the idea that someone like Mike Espy can't win this race. I want to remind folks that this got to a runoff because it was so close the current sitting Senator could not get to the number of ocean needed to get to to win right out. So that's why we're number of candidates. Never have can't it included a major conservative Republican who ran a couple years straight out. Now, we're in a runoff Boulter the facts here. So look, I think my SP did he had a chance at the debate that they had last week. I'm to address the senator's comments, and what he said was look everyone know what she knows what she said. She knows what she meant. And he moved on to talk about the issues. I think he can win this. It's going be a tough world, but they've been knocking doors a lot of folks have this not just Donald Trump. But a lot of folks on the democratic side, I'll have descended on Mississippi. And I think we'll just have to wait and see what happens should Republicans be worried Bill. Mean I think about winning the see they should be worried about the seat. I what I saw the results on election night. It's what forty two percents forty percent. Most of the other vote went to a right wing Republican party Republican. So you could say, well, that's Netflix going to hide Smith. Maybe they don't turn out the SP can make it close and maybe he can win. He was a cabinet Clinton cabinet secretary the fee trader we actually look at the race. He sounds more like a Republican on a lot of issues. He's fee trade. He's for American leadership in the world. She sounds what's word Trumpy. I do think it is part of a bigger much bigger Nashville problem for the Republican party, which is the normal swing voter in Virginia or a lot of swing states across the country the upper midwest, which will be key for twenty twenty. And you look at that, you think that's kind of the Republican party that you know, sort of wishing that we could go back to good old days of the confederacy. It may be unfair her case when I do think it's a bad image for the publicans unfair. And I think to say that I can't from Mississippi is somehow Representative of the candidate from every other corner of the country is not fair to the Republican party. Look if Republicans win one in Pennsylvania. Because we nominate people that fit fit the area that we're running in and Republicans lost this year in Pennsylvania precisely because the national image of the party overwhelmed. You know, fairly reasonable local state and local candidates. So that makes my think. Yeah. Right. Sorry. We have a lot more to talk about we have to take a break at up next. We're gonna talk about twenty twenty two campaign is already underway and challenges are facing both sides pay with us. Good day. Sweep world Jay skis here. From the starters.

Remember, a white woman US Senator from Mississippi a video published online shows Republican Mississippi US Senator Cindy, Hyde Smith praising someone by saying, quote, if he invited me to a public hanging.

I submit to you this person, and her views not patriotic talking about public hangings, especially when you're running against an African American man in Mississippi. I wouldn't call that patriot. There's a lot of words that I would use to describe that one. You think it my opinion of it? I think it was. A couple right there. But patriot no. They can call themselves Christian does that make it? So and I think I finally figured this one out. I mean, it didn't take long right? But they've got they've got to rules to set the standards when they win an election. We must unquestionably inquire unquestioningly obey when they win an election. It's legitimate. It's clean.
