NBCUniversal Wades Into Streaming Wars With Peacock
"There is yet entrant in the streaming worse. NBC universals Contender Peacock lunches today with a host of classic shows like Frasier and cheers. NBC Is Hoping Peacock will stand out as a low cost option with tears of content at different prices, including a free version with commercials of course, but our reporter Joe Flint says that even from day one peacock faces an uphill battle, the big challenge really for them right now is. It's a very crowded marketplace. They are coming in late to it. I think even their own top executives would acknowledge that they've been. been a little late to the streaming game. That doesn't necessarily mean they're doomed. Of course, if the analogy they used, and it's an accurate one. If you look at the cable news world when Fox News debuted, they were late behind MSNBC, and CNN and the general consensus was. They won't make a mark. Obviously, we've seen that's not the case what their their hope was to use the wind. Sorry the Summer Olympics. Promotional, platform so. They kind of lost the billboard that they were planning on. And they're going to launch with less of the original programming. They were hoping to debut with the Hollywood shutdown of production. Due to the corona virus is basically put a lot of projects in limbo for now. That's not just them of course. Disney plus. Hbo Max. Even even that flakes, no one's producing right now, but if you're a new service and you only have a handful of new shows that also may make it tougher to get people to come sample you

The Trump administration says foreign students must leave US if classes go online
"Donald Trump I ran for president. He's had a lot of racist and homophobic things about immigrants, and how he was going to build a wall to many of them out, he also said this. I want people to come into our country legally I WANNA have a big fat beautiful open door. A BIG FAT Beautiful Open Door for legal immigrants. That's how Donald Trump tried to convince the American, And the voters that it wasn't really about hating immigrants, it was just about the rule of law getting the so-called bad hombres out. If you recall Donald Trump has done many things, both during that election, and in the four years, since that made it really clear that he really is prejudice against immigrants of all stripes, or maybe of most stripes, and doesn't seem to care much about the rule of law, either but some level of welcome for immigrants, some level of acknowledgement that immigration is actually important to America's economy, if not its. Its values and traditions was mainstream republican consensus at the time as recently as last year, administration officials were still telling reporters. Trump actually wanted to increase the number of visas for highly skilled workers, but here's the thing Donald. Trump has repeatedly and emphatically slammed his big fat beautiful door in the faces of those same immigrants that his party once tried to make exceptions for the latest example is the trump administration's announcement of a new policy for international students who study at an American College and who studies have moved online during the pandemic. Pandemic, the trump administration essentially told those students to go back to where they came from revoking their right to stay in the United States. The decision doesn't just end the lives of those international students. It's another discouragement of them to study and potentially build their lives in America. We're shutting the door on some of the world's best and brightest minds, giving up on their contributions to American business to research, innovation and society, now and down the Road Harvard Law School Professor Vivek Wadhwa writes that the effective pushing these students away will quote. Quote likely be an exodus of academic talent to schools in Europe or elsewhere and intellectual catastrophe of historic proportions with long-term economic ramifications. There is so much at stake in this move by the president for the students for the universities, and for all of us that today the attorneys General of Sixteen. States and DC joined the age of Massachusetts ensuing the administration to try and stop the policy. They're asking Federal Court in Boston to block.

Trump's Niece Wins Legal Battle Over Tell-All Book
"The trump administration gave Michael Cohen Choice. Sign this paper, saying you won't write a book or go back to prison. Silence or prison. Your choice then there's the book by Donald Trump's niece slated for official publication tomorrow Donald. Trump and his family have been in court up through today, trying to block the book from being published and Block Mary trump from saying anything about the book. which feels ridiculous because you probably feel like you've already read it, since just about every media outlet on the planet has gotten a copy and dissect it already. Well this evening. Donald Trump and his family lost that court fight a New York State Supreme Court Judge rejected. The trump families attempt to block the book ruling that quote the potential enormous cost and logistical nightmare of stopping the publication, recalling and removing. Thousands of books from all types of booksellers, brick and mortar and virtual libraries and private citizens is an insurmountable task at this time. The judge then quotes a different judge in another case Donald. Trump lost when he tried to block the publication of his former National Security Advisor John Bolton's book quote by the looks of it. The horses not just out of the barn. It is out of the country. Mary Trump's book can go forward and also married is now free to speak publicly about it. which should be interesting, so Michael Cohen's Book Mary Trump's book. The president his family his White House doing everything they can to prevent the from coming out up to and including sending Michael Cohen back to prison, but today we learned about a third book. Now see if you can spot the difference today. Today. The Justice Department released the actual executive order commuting the prison sentence of Roger. Stone he can see the president's unmistakable sharpie signature there. The president commuted his old friend sentence on Friday night, but it's not clear how broad the commutation was. In fact, the judge in stones case demanded to see the actual order to determine whether it covered stones, prison, time or his probation as well well. Now, we know that the president took care of everything. His Old Friend Prison Time supervised released twenty thousand dollar. Fine all of it poof gone. And today Roger Stone announced that he celebrating by. Writing a book. That's right, so if you testify unflattering Lee about the president, and you try and write a book you get to get the go back to prison. If you withhold information from Congress and prosecutors to protect the president, you get your prison sentence erased, and you can publish to your heart's content.

"On MSNBC. Rachel has denied off, but be assured she will be back tomorrow, and it's a big show. There's a metric ton of stuff going on right now. In the news. The Supreme Court says justice. Ruth Bader Ginsburg is home in doing well? After a night in the hospital to treat an infection that's reassuring the twitter accounts of some of the world's most famous people posted patently scammy, sounding junk today as hackers broke into twitter. The implications of that are far from reassuring. We're GONNA. Have more on that story coming up in the hour, but just in this last hour the president has changed up the leadership on his presidential campaign. His current came package campaign manager is being demoted and being replaced with the current deputy campaign manager in other. News we have new polling on the presidential race. That I didn't see coming. We've got an interview with Senator Bernie Sanders as I said there is a lot going on, but we begin tonight with the story that has reshaped all of our lives and the time that the White House promised. We would nip this thing in the bud in fifteen days. were, announcing new guidelines for every American to follow over the next fifteen days. As we combat the virus, the guidelines are fifteen day trial. Guideline this guidance for the next fifteen days what you can do over the next fifteen days. To prevent the spread or fifteen days to stop the spread initiative and everybody in America does what we asked for the next fifteen days, we will see a dramatic difference. Much of what we're talking about is for the next fifteen days. Fifteen days to slow the pro spread that was in March I was four months ago. and. It was quite possibly the only time that this. White House has been united behind a single message about how to address what is now an out of control crisis. They made fifteen days to slow the spread powerpoint presentations. They made PSA's that ran online. They printed out the guidelines on paper to wave around task force briefings, and in TV interviews, despite the vigor with which White House officials shook those guidelines in the air. The spread was not slowed in fifteen days, and they did not stay committed to that single consistent message about how to address the corona virus. Ever since then, the administration's approach to the pandemic has felt more like a bar fight then a cogent policy over the past few days, the White House has rolled out a new strategy which involves publicly attacking an undercutting a key member of its own Corona Virus Task Force. Dr Anthony Fauci. The started with leaks to the press from anonymous White House staffers who were trying to tarnish Dr Fao Cheese reputation at the same time that he was speaking up about the seriousness of our current crisis, it continued today with one of the president's advisors, writing an op Ed under his own name, asserting the doctor she's medical. Advice is not to be trusted with new infections on a meteoric rise in this country. This is the new White House strategy to publicly embarrass a well respected medical expert with a reputation for truth, telling at the height of this crisis. Today after days of taking it on the Chin Doctor Fauci, speaking up, he told the Atlantic magazine that he finds the White House. Effort to discredit him bizarre. He called the attacks against him nonsense and completely wrong. He told the Atlantic quote when the White House staff, let's out something like this and the entire scientific press community. Push back on it. It ultimately hurts the president. Bracing as it is to see Dr Fauci having to defend himself like this. Maybe his decision to fight back means the white. House will back off. We can hope. Because the crisis, wearing right now would be hard enough to solve if everyone in the administration were on the same page. Let alone if they were not attacking their top medical expert. There simply is not the time to waste this disease forecasters at the University of Washington have revised their prediction for how many Americans will die from Corona virus now this is the very model that was once touted by the White House as the gold standard for mapping out the spread of the virus. Forecasters believed that by November. First Corona virus toll in this country will be just shy of a quarter million Americans. By Election Day. Just shy of a quarter million Americans that kind of prediction is of course disturbing to see, but in a way it's also the next step consequence of the out of control surgeon cases. That's ripping through the country right now. This week started off with Texas Florida and California crushing through new case records now it's Vata in Oklahoma. Today Nevada hit a new record high for the number of Cova patients hospitalized in the state. That is right on the heels of record number for new infections that Nevada set yesterday. Oklahoma reported a record number of new cases. Today was the first time the state has reported more than a thousand cases in a single day since the pandemic started. One of those cases by the way the governor himself. Oklahoma's Republican Governor Kevin Stint. Announce that he's tested positive for corona virus. The first American governor known to contract the virus. By the way is the same Oklahoma governor who just last week said he remains opposed to any kind of mask mandate in his State, and the governor notably has not changed his position on requiring masks in light of his diagnosis quite the contrary. He says that even though he just tested positive himself, he respects people's right not to wear a mask if they so choose. We're hearing that sort of thing from Republicans all over the country. The president's former White House doctor. Ronnie Jackson Remember Him who just won his primary last night in his bid for Congress has said today that wearing a mask is a quote personal choice. Scott Doctor. Wearing a mask is what most scientists agree is an incredibly effective tool to slow the spread of Corona virus. The president's own CDC director says if we had a national mask mandate the United States could get the pandemic quote under control in one or two months. We do it right. We might get this under control in one or two months and yet we are nowhere near that. In the absence of a national policy on masks, only half the states in the country plus DC require mask wearing in public, which is why some American businesses have taken it upon themselves to act where twenty five governors have not. Walmart Sam's Club best by Kroger. Kohl's big retailers with loads of stores from coast to coast are all requiring their customers to wear a mask inside their stores..

This after a week, in which there is finally a considerable freak out in the state government Mississippi over the extent and rapid growth of the virus in that state.

We are in the middle of a spike. It is putting a strain on our hospital system. Mississippi is in a fight for our lives. Republican Tate Reeves Governor of the State of Mississippi State Health Officer Thomas. Stops is being perhaps even more stark about how far Mississippi is already off the cliff. We've been talking about this. Saying it's coming and here it is. And not only is it here. It's going to get worse. Yesterday. Five of our biggest hospitals in the state had zero ICU beds zero. An additional war had five percent last additional three had less than ten percent. Our biggest medical institutions who take care of our patients have no room to take care of additional folks, and when I talked to my er colleagues. I'm understanding. They can't get them anywhere because there's nowhere to send them. We're sending people out of state. All the time because Mississippi hospitals cannot take care of Mississippi patients. SIPPY hospitals cannot take care of Mississippi patients. That's Mississippi State health officer Thomas

He and his crew were allowed into one of South Carolina's largest medical units Lexington Medical Center, she she and her crew excuse me. The CEO of the Medical Center has been pleading with local officials to please require masks in the area. The hospital has actually been running ads begging people in the local community to wear masks. But things just keep getting worse watch. What we've seen over the past couple of weeks is increasing rates of infection among younger persons as well as hospitalizations just a month ago or census was twenty two patients on the hospital saw that were cova positive that needed care.

California's San Quentin Prison Was Free of the Virus. One Decision Fueled an Outbreak.
"California's one of the large states that has having a large surge in corona virus, cases and hospitalizations right now Arizona of courses in terrible shape right now. Texas is in terrible shape Florida, starting to get really terrible really fast. All three of those states are now having hospitals overrun while their case numbers hospitalization numbers just keep climbing every day scary. but California's having a real problem too, and here's something really specific. That's going on in. California, that was not just like a bad situation that arose from the Meyer of this epidemic in California part of their big problem, right now was a single screw up a bad mistake that has now set off. What is really a disaster? Here's what happened. By mid April one of the largest state prisons in California had run of outbreak. It started as just a handful of cases at the California State Prison in Chino. But it soon became dozens of cases, prisoners and staff alike. At the time there were more than forty two hundred men imprisoned at Chino that's nearly twenty percent more than the capacity. That prison was built to handle and of course. You know by their very nature. Correctional facilities and specifically overcrowded correctional facilities like Chino was just a hot bread for any hotbed for any sort of. Contagious, illness and sort of outbreak. So when they knew that in mid. April it was no wonder that by the following month by May. Corona virus had just run through every dorm, used to house prisoners at Chino. By the end of May there were six hundred and thirty five confirmed cases at Chino. There were nine men dead. Given the crisis, they had on their hands. The State Department of Corrections along with the State Attorney Journal decided that they would transfer all bunch of prisoners out of that prison out of Chino, and they would send them to other prisons in the state. One of those prisons was the infamous prison just north of San Francisco called Quenton now. At the time San Quentin had actually been doing very well and beating back the epidemic so well in fact at the time. San Quentin had no infections saint. Quentin had no corona virus infections in March. In April and it may. But then came this influx of prisoners from China, which had a terrible problem there more than one hundred twenty prisoners were transferred from Chino to that facility at San Quentin and they'd all been tested at some point before transfer. But. It wasn't like they were particularly sticklers timing it right off the bat. They knew problems. Many of the prisoners hadn't been tested for coronavirus for up to a month. Before they got sent from China to this new prison at San Quentin. And so at Saint Quentin within days. They get the sides of their first infections. In the month, or so since those transfers San Quentin has now become the largest corona virus outbreak in California. There have now been more than fifteen. Hundred confirmed cases at San, Quentin alone and at least six deaths. Three of those deaths just came this weekend. And amidst this huge spike in more than fifteen hundred cases at San Quentin. Well now, the top medical officer for California prisons has been fired. And now with the virus, having spread unabated throughout San Clinton. It is I mean there's no wonder that a lot of people are worried a lot of different levels starting of course with prisoners. And with their families recently, we had the chance to speak with the mother of one prisoner at San Clinton and her name is Rita Zavala. And she told us this about her son's cellmate, recently testing positive and how her son is living now. Are Man their lives matter to. Just like everybody else. And they should be treated like. Animals? That so like they are treating them like. Just let him sit there. You know if you make it. Oh, good, if not allow you know. That's not how treated human. Stage they got there, but they're paying for their mistake. You know being in prison. But my son was. But I feel like he is now because I don't know. If he if he is going to get the virus, and not is GonNa make it through the by rich because of their medical is not the greatest. You know. Last point raised by Ms Avella is critical one. It's the it's not just the number of men that are dying at San. Quentin, that is the cost for alarm. It's also the huge number of prisoners who are positive there now who are requiring medical care and they're requiring advanced medical care, which means they're getting not just the prison itself, but within the whole local healthcare system, some hospitals within reaching distance of San Clinton, have become so taxed already by San Quentin prisoners filling up their issues that they're no longer accepting any transfers of California state prisoners to their facilities situations gotten bad enough that one local doctor told our NBC news affiliate and San Francisco. That San Quentin is the Chernobyl of covid.
Norah ODonnell, anchor of the CBS Evening News
"Today O'Donnell joins us on skin from the couch. She is the anchor and managing editor of the CBS Evening News, making her the third woman ever to so anger, a network evening broadcasts before taking the helm of the evening news. She was the CO host of CBS this morning for seven years norad. Thank you for joining us welcome skin from the couch. Thank you for having me, so we're GONNA. Start off with Skim your resume for us. Will I went to Georgetown University I was Law Sophy Major? I was interested in a lot of different things in college so I had internships at always worked and worked at a law firm I. worked at the World Bank, and and then I injured ABC News and I think you know journalism really was what was the right fit for me? Just a deep curiosity about the news, deep curiosity about world events and people have to graduating from college I got a job at National Journal on a publication, a called the hotline, which was the original kind of aggregate her of news before the Huffington. Post and others got into the business of aggregating news. Even like you guys in some way, remember it well, and that also was like a crash course in politics, too, because we would. Sum Up every Senate and House race across the country, all the polling who all the key consultants were, so that really was a great crash course in politics, and then I got hired at NBC and MSNBC when I was twenty five years old to be you know it was one of the youngest correspondents at NBC history, and had a great career at NBC and had three kids, and then we all work on intelligent news underwear like personal services contracts. All of us have anywhere from two to five year contracts. In, so you know in each of those contracts, come up! You have an opportunity to reevaluate your next step and CBS came to me with an incredible offer to be. The chief White House correspondent for Obama's last term, and to be the substitute anchor for face, the nation, and I had always been ambitious about wanting to anchor a Sunday broadcast I love politics, and so to be able to substitute for the legendary Bob Schieffer at thought. This is really an an excellent opportunity, so. and. CBS. News and then Kinda. The rest is history should I keep going? No, that was perfect so something you definitely don't know I. and turned at MVP when I was nineteen in the specials unit, and I was like my first week on the internships. Let's say day two or three in you opt into the office. And you're the first professional famous news anchor I ever seen in person and I literally I stopped breathing I was so excited all I wanted to do is to be a news anchor at the time, and I was so nervous, and when you walked out of the room I asked one of the producers. What is she liked you work with her I will never. Never forget their like she's the best of the best, and I was like what makes her so good. And they said that she always does her homework and I think about that a lot and I'm curious. What is something that you your fans and people like us your big fans? What does the thing that we don't know about you that we can't Google? What I wasn't as good about doing my homework in college. And I did just fine at Georgetown. But I do I think certainly a professional that is dry. Always did know my homework because I do believe that preparation builds confidence and confidence build success, and so for me, you know certainly early on my career as a young correspondent with so many famous people at NBC legendary careers. My confidence wasn't a tie, and so I thought how can I be the smartest person in the room and no more than anybody else and. You know I just really did my homework. I really worked really hard to make sure I knew everything. The thing that people may not know about me. You Know I. Guess would be that I'm from a military family. You know I mean that certainly is my resume, but it's the one thing I mentioned because you know I remember in covering certainly the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq after nine eleven, a lot of people would say on television and Mike Barnicle on morning. Joe would say this a lot that Oh, no less than one percent of people have someone in the military who didn't understand these wars, but I grew up in the military. My father was drafted during the Vietnam War. State for thirty years I lived overseas and so I really do have a deep appreciation for those who serve my sister-in-law surgeon in the army and so I do have a really keen sense of the sacrifice that many people go through, and I do in some ways I almost wish that it was mandatory almost like in Israel that we had to sir because. I think you know certainly the discipline that they have is unlike anything I've seen those who sir. Let's actually start with that because I think it's fascinating talking about how you grew up and living overseas. How did this love of news and growing up with that military background kind of come together for you? You know I think one of the. First crystallized for me in some ways when Elena, Nachman Ost, who is still the vice president of talent at NBC? News said to me when I met her. When I was twenty five years old, and she said you know we like hiring correspondents who have from a military background, because they're very flexible and adaptable. They don't complain about being sent to different cities or states or around. Around the world they can talk to anybody because they've sort of been put in that situation where they have to be totally adaptable. Moment's notice

Epstein's alleged accomplice Ghislaine Maxwell set to be arraigned next week
"Maxwell. epsteins closest associates. And helped him exploit girls. who were as young as fourteen years old? Mental played a critical role in helping Epstein to identify the friend and groom minor victims for abuse. In some cases, Maxwell participated in the abuse herself. Okay if you thought the Jeffrey Epstein case was over after his apparent suicide in his jail cell last year. Thank again you'll remember that Epstein was the disgraced financier and convicted sex offender who socializes powerful men like Prince Andrew Bill Clinton and Donald Trump on Thursday, his longtime associate d'alene Maxwell, was arrested and charged for allegedly helping Epstein recruit groom, and sexually abused girls as young as fourteen years old. She has denied any wrongdoing. Here's more of what the US attorney from the southern. District of New York had to say about it. Max will and Epstein had a method. Typically. They would befriend these young girls by asking them questions. About their lives, pretending to be taking an interest in them. They would take them to the movies. And treat them to shopping trips. Maxwell would encourage these young girls to accept offers from Epstein to pay for their travel and their education. Making these young victims feel indebted to Jeffrey Epstein. Developing a rapport with Victims Maxwell then try to normalize sexual abuse with a minor victim. Joining me now. Our our sisters in Law Maya Wiley Professor at the new school and NBC legal analysts Barbara Maclead, former US attorney and MSNBC contributor and Joyce vans, also a former US attorney, and also MSNBC contributor so ladies first I love the all female panel, but I will say starting out I used to be a field producer for America's most wanted, and my beat was covering missing and exploited children. On, this and ask you if you could. How important is the role of the person WHO's The enabler? The person who is recruiting these young girls and my experience, that person was integral to abuse cases when I was a journalist covering these types of cases so. What what say you on that? Yeah. You're absolutely right, tiffany. This is this person and the person who plays the role that. Just Lane Maxwell accused of playing is a Predator is just as culpable as. Jeffrey Epstein or anyone else who sexually assaults anybody? The reason it's so critical to have a person play the role maxwell is accused of is because it's manipulation gain. We have three hundred thousand young people in this country estimated to be sex trafficked domestically, and what that means is finding young kids met male and female. We shouldn't pretend that it's just girls here. In this country who are vulnerable, who need help who need the support of a system hasn't provided it. These are young women who were disadvantaged in many different ways, and what the role that Maxwell played was to play on their need. Get them to trust and being a woman who does that is particularly important, because if you're a vulnerable young woman, you're more likely to let your guard down and believe that the person who is offering you help means it so her role. Is Pivotal in enabling essentially the victimization of a lot of young women and girls, and it happens all over the country. One of the things that so important about this arrest is that predators who are powerful too often go unpunished. So something I found interesting reporting coming out of the Tampa. Bay Times highlighted that this case is actually being handled by the Office of Public Corruption Unit so I. WanNa ask you, Barbara. What does that say about the scope of this? Nation is that. Link to anyone in the current administration. Is it possible that Labor Secretary Alexander Costa's entangled in this break it down for those of us who don't necessarily know how the inner workings of the Southern District. It's a really interesting detail. Tiffany of the press release that was put out by this other district of New, York. This is also true when the case was originally just against Jeffrey Epstein that the public corruption unit is involved, that's a unit that has specialized training and expertise to deal with public officials who get charged there a lot of nuanced issues that arise when public officials are involved and so it says to me that this case. Case at least touches in some way public officials. Now as you said we know that Alex Kosta had some involvement with this. We don't know that he is a subject or a target of the investigation, but his involvement in negotiating sweetheart plea deal a number of years ago. With Jeffrey Epstein could be a reason. We also know that Prince. Andrew has been implicated as recently as last month Jeffrey Berman. The former US attorney recently ousted. Ousted was demanding an opportunity to talk with him and Prince Andrew was a dodging that request to be interviewed. It may be that he is only a witness and not a subject or a target, but this no doubt touches some people who have positions of power, and that could explain why the involvement of public corruption unit or could be others as yet unknown I think four names I be looking at immediately or not public. Public officials, but enablers as Maya, was talking about. If you look at the plea non-prosecution agreement that was negotiated with the Southern District of Florida back in two thousand eight. You'll see the names of four individuals that Jeffrey Epstein specifically wanted to protect. Those are very likely to be people who were enablers recruiters I'd want to get to the bottom of their role. and I think that this case is not done being charged yet. I want to turn the Joyce. Barbara brought up Berman and his abrupt firing. Do you see any connection here with what the dismissal of Berman and the FCC case? So, Tiffany I think it's very hard to know. We know that. The Attorney General Poll Day late Friday night effort to usher Berman out the door, unceremoniously in the southern district of New York and that didn't work became public when Berman refused to go along and instead of having the Attorney General's political appointee in place. We ended up with a woman who was. was already in the office, a career employee, a career prosecutor who will hopefully be playing things straight up so it's difficult to make any sort of direct political line there what we do know is that this is the classic type of an indictment that looks like prosecutors aren't done. It looks like they're headed in further direction, and that's something that there could perhaps. Perhaps be powerful. People who are interested in shutting off when I say it's a classic indictment. What I mean is this indictment comes in six counts, and there's a I can't. That's a conspiracy count and the maximum penalty. There is five years, but there are also substantive counts and conspiracy counts of enticement and transportation of minors, and those counts actually range from ten. Ten years to lifetime sentences, and so as MS Maxwell, is forced to confront the potential charges. She's looking out. Does she want to go to prison for the rest of her life, or is she willing to cooperate and become a witness and look at lesser charges? Perhaps five year sentence that I think will give some powerful people some reason to sleep poorly. All right. Am I GONNA? Go back to you. What do you think that gain maxwell will do you anticipate that she? Said they say. It's hard to know. We're looking at a case as both Barbara Jo of a choice have said where there are powerful people connected to Maxwell and Epstein. There's the mysterious death of Jeff Jeffrey Epstein that has still raised questions in people's mind. And I think the question becomes. Where do you feel more vulnerable? Do you feel more vulnerable from law enforcement, or do you feel more vulnerable other ways we don't really know. We're not going to know, but the one thing we do know and I think is important to remember is this is an over for the victims? This is only the beginning of what will be a very deeply difficult. Possibly re traumatizing process that they have really bravely stood up and faced down despite the fact that I don't think there's any illusion for them. They will have to protect themselves from further victimization in the way, in which the defense will be mounted for Maxwell. So if there's any decency at all left in this woman, she will certainly spare them.
Afghan Contractor Handed Out Russian Cash to Kill Americans, Officials Say

"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..

They have yet to get over all right. Thank you so much. I appreciate it. I i wish rachel nicole. I wish you could hear the conversation conversation. 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..

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.

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.

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.

"Back. We're going to be joined by a trio of the nation's former top counterterrorism officials say they have some very specific ideas for what the country can do about gun violence and this nexus to white nationalist terrorism do stay with us. What is your message that you cannot your hatred took. I pray for him because something happened in his life that he had talk to people. 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. Senate about the current threat of domestic ethic terrorism white supremacists responsible for more homicides from two thousand and two thousand sixteen than any other domestic extremist movement there concern that this is not being taken as seriously as it should be..

"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..
