"nbc news" Discussed on KFAB's Morning News with Gary Sadlemyer
"Welcome back nbc. Radio national correspondent. Michael bauer now. That they Inauguration ceremonies are passed and the president has signed a bunch of executive orders trying to undo basically the trump administration's executive orders. Now you would think okay. Let's get on with awe with the agenda but the agenda. It seems like michael is going to be held up for a while at least by this impeachment trial and the senate what what's happening today and in the next few days regarding that. Well it's kind of right now. We're at to wait and see place. Gary where we're waiting to see when the house will be turning over the article of impeachment that has been held against president trump that they've found president trump impeached upon the count. Indictment of our incitement of insurrection. So that's what they're waiting for. They're going to deliver it to the senate. At some point there was a belief that could have happened yesterday or even today. But i think it's a more thought out plan from nancy pelosi right now to hold off a few days in fact i think we might not even see it till next week. Why because you've got a new president who's trying to swear in cabinet members as well as other officials and and try to get some of his agenda taken care of that needs the approval of the senate if you turn over those articles of impeachment to the senate that becomes their sole job. They drop everything else it by law. They have to six days a week. Sundays you only have six days a week. They're supposed to focus on that impeachment hearing and do nothing else until that impeachment hearing is so the minute you turn that over. You've got to be prepared. You won't have any senate for however long it takes we've seen impeachments that lasted eighty three days However long it takes to do that and the question here is do. Democrats want to have that kind of delay getting joe biden and beginning the process of getting his agenda taken care of so that's one aspect of it but i think you're right to something else. You said what you're talking about the agenda. I think it goes further than than than president biden. Here i think he's saying i'm gonna leave this in the hands of the senate to do what they wanna do. How they're going to do it. But that he himself from this move from congress not just because he wasn't involved in wasn't the president when this all happened when january six went down and you had the right to the capitol but more so because the folks who are in this unique case the folks who are technically the jury during An impeachment hearing are also technically some of the victims to the alleged crime right. Because when you're talking about the the incitement of insurrection and president trump being found guilty in the house of that. These senators these congress. People were people that were in lockdown. Where people that were angered by what happened. Scared by what happened. Had their lives on the line. Some of them felt so. When you had mitch mcconnell the other day make his last statement as senate majority leader to the senate. One of the things he said was that trump and fed lies to the violent rioters. That's the message. He wanted to leave on when he left. The senate majority seat. And that's something that you're seeing. I think of frustration from some of these folks to say okay. i understand. it's gonna take a little while to get to this but we wanna have this hearing because we were in danger and we were concerned about it. Perhaps more so than the american public was it just seems so ridiculous farther away donald trump is from the presidency. The more ridiculous it seems So they convict him and now a remove him from office. Wait a minute. Here's what do you think michael Revenge santa message stop and remember running again. What do you think the point of this. I think the public facing message will be. We've got to prove a point. We can't let this happen. I think the private facing especially on behalf of mitch. Mcconnell and some republicans is They're concerned that president trump could turn on them. They're concerned that if they decided to go about for the next four years their their usual republican ways and didn't stick with president trump on some level That he would start having people run against them. Come the midterms and twenty twenty two and possibly even them come twenty twenty four. So i think there's an element of mitch mcconnell. Who's drawn a line. A line in the sand very clearly did so on the sixth doing so again here in his last effort as the majority leader to say that the republicans don't have be the party of trump. There can be something else and i think. That's probably what his element of this pushes michael thanks. Michael bauer nbc. Radio national correspondent frequent contributor here on. Kabc's morning news. This is the detail seems to me. Jam the republican party about to decide if it's going to commit suicide way letting trial if they if they if they impeach donald convict uss the senate it'll take it'll take republicans to do. It will be a seventeen right. yeah I don't get four. They're not gonna get seventeen and they may not get all the democrats. I think they'll get more than three or four young. I mean they they they may not get all the democrats But this is a warning sign. Senator ben sasse Who has been a target of some higher of late. If you vote to impeach this president move out of the state while. I don't think i don't think he's if you vote to impeach this president given these conditions. I would encourage you to move back to virginia because they have a residence in the state. You replicate then go get an apartment down by regency lake like chuck hagel did and move lock stock and barrel back to virginia.

"Years ago. Nbc's pure alexander asked on trump the most important question facing donald trump on the pardon power. Do you believe that you are above the law if you could pardon yourself. I'm not above the law. I never want anybody to be above the law. But the pardons are very positive thing for president. I think you see the way. I'm using them and yes i ask myself. The constitution agrees with donald trump. There is not one word in the constitution limits. Donald trump's ability to pardon himself cnn.com reports trump has been asking aids since two thousand seventeen about whether he can self pardoned former aides. Say one former white house official said trump asked about self pardons as well as pardons for his family trump even asked if he could issue pardons preemptively for things people could be charged with in the future. The former official said as donald trump by not by now has no doubt been told. Yes you can pardon yourself. Donald and a supreme court with three trump appointed judges would probably support the president's right to pardon himself since the constitution does not specifically say that he cannot do it and yes. Donald trump can all of his family members. And yes donald trump can issue pardons that. Don't mention any specific crimes. President ford's pardon of president nixon's simply covered any possible violation of federal law during every day of the nixon presidency. Donald trump will no doubt give himself apart in that will cover every day of his life up until the day that the pardon is issued on january twentieth but no pardon can cover future criminal activity any federal crimes. Donald trump might commit after noontime on january twentieth. We'll be prosecutable for the rest of his life. Donald trump is already under criminal investigation by new york state prosecutors who will not be limited by the federal pardon that donald trump will have when he leaves office which only covers federal crimes. Donald trump is leaking word that he is considering running for president again in for years. But that ignores the changed legal circumstance of donald trump's life next year when he might be a criminal defendant in new york state and possibly by the end of the year a convicted felon in new york state new york times reports. Mr trump is taking talking seriously about announcing that he is planning to run again in twenty twenty four aware that whether he actually does it or not. It will freeze an already crowded field of possible. Republican candidates republicans. Say it will keep the wide support.

"On a Sunday in mid-november former New York City mayor. Michael Bloomberg took a car out of Manhattan across the East River to the outer limits of Brooklyn. He had an appearance scheduled at the Christian Cultural Center of Black Mega Church in East New York. There was something. The former mayor wanted to get off his chest overtime. I've come to understand something that I long struggled to admit to myself. I got something important wrong. I got something important really wrong. A little more than six years after leaving office bloomberg apologize for policing tactic. He championed known. Stop and Frisk. I didn't understand that back. The full impact that stops were having on the black and Latino communities I was totally focused on saving lives but as we know good intentions aren't good enough but I can't change history however today. I want you to know that I realized back then I was wrong. And I'm sorry. And then one week later. I'm glad to announce that I am running for president. Defeat Donald Trump and to unite and rebuild America. He announced his run for the presidency. As a former mayor of America's largest city who wants govern New York as a Republican but is entering the Democratic primary in a new era. The party has moved left on criminal. Justice issues and candidates are now having to account for policing policies that devastated some American community's part of the reason they have to address this type of criticism is because they know the importance of the black vote. It's not a monolith but it's essential to capturing the Democratic nomination so Michael Bloomberg goes to East New York. He apologizes for this thing. He did as mayor he announces. He's running for president and boom. He's addressed it. Turns out for voters is more complicated than it. I'd rather somebody new that I don't know a lot of me. I don't care what he says. He's not getting my vote. I'm sure mainly and this is into America. A podcast about politics about policy and the power. That both have in shaping the lives of the American people today.

He says he won another another battle with them. Well you just played what I call the test. I caucus people said the president something wrong but don't believe in a single consequence for him. They're not even introducing bills of censure. Okay so they're just wringing the hands. This is terrible. Let's move on now the Democrats tonight. They're playing for a crowd that already has made up. Its mind and has reached each verdict on Donald Trump. And so I don't think they need to pound the pavement on this. They need to advance their own their own story. They're on sale. Sell a selling points. That's what they're gonNA focus on. But I do think there's a bit of a disconnect between this what's happening in Washington with trump on on this rampage of revenge and senators giving up on their constitutional oath. While we up here in New Hampshire and sometimes talking about who shaking hands getting sometimes caught up in what might be fun but also the trivial side of politics of you know.

I know this is a podcast. They can't see a bunch of lightning both pain so you're NBC News Right now. Yeah previously at whether Channel Rat Linda How's it going? How how's the I guess? NEWISH GIG you've been there for. Yeah just over a year and it's going great. I moved from Atlanta to New York. I do live in the city so you know learning how to live in the city the life I was certainly an adjustment. My family is from the New York City area. So it wasn't that bad Did give up my car by the way I miss it every single day. But you do not need it living in New York Eric Working for NBC. News is so much fun. It's it's another level you know so. Every day. I get in my typical schedules. I work Monday through through Friday six. Am to three PM and that schedule allows me to help out with the today show. When I I get in and help with planning all the way through nightly news and then and also continue planning for the today show for the next day so I right now my main meteorologist that I work with our our roker and Dylan Dreyer Gio? So what does a typical day. There might might not be a typical day. But what does one look at that exists. Yes so the typical day and again every day is different. That's also why I love working in media. You kind of have have an idea of what you're working in two or walking into but you also don't know what's the top news story going to be. You know when you work in breaking news. Sometimes you literally do not know what's going to happen that day but a typical day my alarm goes off at four. AM which is early. But I also did. When I was at the weather channel I did many many years of two? Am Star so sleeping in a forum now for me. So that's I hop on the subway way early in the morning those city streets and I'm in the door usually at six. AM sharp are there is really no kind of time to get adjusted by six. AM The today show. Goes on the earth seven so everyone is in full planning mode full producing mode. And we're kind of in the last minute touches. especially if there's breaking news it's really hustling so I am doing any last minute Senate weather maps for al a lot of times especially if there's breaking weather you've got rainfall totals to talk about. Maybe some records are being set that we want to be in the show. So I'm adjusting scripts I'm checking headlines for meteorological accuracy which is important also for interest. We WanNa grab those viewers right away Then from seven to nine. I'm in the booth working the maps producing with Al with my other co workers who are beside me other meteorologists at NBC. And then after nine. It's almost like everything comes to a halt because the show's over and then we go immediately into meetings to plan the weather content for the whole rest of the day so it is nonstop. They say we have an hour lunch. Break we do not have an hour lunch. Break work launch so coming from the weather channel. I imagine you're working with mainly Meteorologist people with the weather background but now that's sort of big difference at the at NBC. I'm I'm sure it's a lot less Meteorologist working with what what do you think is the difference there. Like how do you have to do things differently. Talk differently or use different words. That is a a great question. The answer is yes but not necessarily in a bad way at actually gives me more of an editorial voice that I never had before when I was working at the weather channel. You said we're all meteorologists. We were all generally on the same page most of the time here. You know you've got the the weather unit also simultaneously the Climate Unit at NBC. We are whether voices for the entire giant network of NBC. So we will field questions and again help with reading scripts reading headlines Writing Scripts sometimes for NBC News All of the digital platforms so NBC News. Now obviously NBC News Dot Com as well as MSNBC. The list goes on and on so It is my job also to temper any hype you know it is the news. Watch us but but we do have that responsibility especially me as a scientist now recently a see you do have that scientific responsibility to you know. Don't let facts get in the way of a good story. That's kind of typical. Slogan of News I tried to let not let that happen. I try to make sure all the facts are correct. Everything is accurate and then you can get into the storytelling aspect. Gotcha so you mentioned that you went to Virginia tech yet or Hokey. I am a Hokey. That's great and you said You actually started UH meteorology program there. Yes so I certainly helped it When I first got to tech There was no school in Virginia that had a meteorology degree program. Graham And I knew I WANNA be meteorologist. So I'm thinking okay. How can I make it happen? Even though I don't have a degree program to literally do it so I remember member as a freshman walking into the office. He was the dean of the College of geography. And I said I want a meteorology program and you know for those of you who can't can't see me I am five foot one rounding up my nickname visit by feet of fury. So here I am a freshman blasting into the Dean's office saying we need a beater allergy elegy program and we need it now and there were a couple of meteorology courses within the geography department. So That's how I knew where to go. So I immediately paired up with the one meteorology instructor Dave Carroll who quickly became my mentor helped him build coursework Helped him build kind of storm chase field course that all students go on and I still see them out in the plains. Every year helped sit in on the interviews for new professors which is a little scary And then I continued there to get my graduate degree which also helped me build that program. Yes I actually. I was like every class I became available. I took it the first semester available and so there was a lot of feedback involved. I started the Meteorology Club. There you know we start. I remember the first meeting there. Were like eight of US weather geeks in there and now the club has just exploded in its gigantic doc and it makes me very happy. That's awesome yeah. I should've I should've done. I'm from Maryland and they didn't have a program at the time I didn't think starting my own that's really in business so it was really busy. I would say but I felt it was important and the important thing was I found other people who were also so interested in it also wanted a program so I built my little army and then they came with me to mediates. They helped me start the club so I had people full with me to help. Get that message Allen that's great So at Ms. When I tried to schedule for the interview you said you are busy with the CCM? I I guess you do the actual approval of see at at the conference. Yes so I just got my CCS which stands thank you. It was a rigorous process The idea to get it actually came from my business partner Crystal Egger she ours. We we started a company together and she found the CCN program we've both been members of the ams forever and she goes you know what this looks interesting. Maybe this would help our company. You know maybe you should get it and I look at the process and I'm like Oh oh my goodness. I don't know if I can do this. It's very rigorous. It's very hard but I thought okay. Let's give it a try so I remember. I decided I'm going to do this in the summer. Summer of two thousand eighteen and then a month later I got a new job in New York but I had already started the process. You know we have like three months to get through it and so I'm moving. I'm sorry new job I'm trying to do the CCM which was the hardest thing ever. It reminded me of getting my master's degree but even more difficult than that if you can believe in and then I came to ams last year It was in Phoenix. And I did the two hour long oral exam where I've got grilled by like fifteen people. Yes which they were. Current board members new board members. And I really didn't know it passed or not it was that difficult because CCM's we are trained to have a poker face so so what else in the exam. I didn't know if I was doing great. If I was bombing I had no clue and then I found out I passed which was wonderful now. They asked me to be aboard member. So Oh wow. I took the exam just last year and now I'm helping great it and it's been a big so now you're on the other side of that. I am underside. And he knows since I just did it a year ago. I can really empathize with all the people who are up there and clearly nervous and you know clearly terrified because I was them one year ago so trying to help them and through the process as best I can you mentioned that in part you you got your cesium because Your Business. ooh What's so what's Your Business Name. In what what. What do you do with the goal so my business? This is called monarch weather consulting and we are in small women owned business. There's four of us right now and for all the weather keeps out there monarch. It is for the butterfly fly because that is a hat tip to the butterfly favorite. That's my favorite butterfly monarch. I love monarch so much. I'm sort of insect. Yeah we must have been chat channel in your interest as well so I mean we have just built our company. Even since a year ago we were just coming up with the monarch name which which by the way we now just call ourselves monarchs which is super throwing? We do have a Hashtag boss Babes because we are small women owned The other people in the it was just crystal and me for a long time. I give crystal all the credit in the world. She's the one who started it and said Hey. I think we can do this so I call her the fearless leader of the company. And as we I started growing we brought on twin sister Lauren and she so I'm the scientists twin she is the art and I like to call her colored like the smarter twin. And if you will at least with street smarts Because she does marketing and advertising so I brought her on as the director of marketing. Now we are a startup so I pay her in pizza and wine right now. But it's great to have her on the team and she's another Virginia cokie and then the fourth person on our team is Ashley Ballard and she is is a genius. Also one of my former students also a hokey storm Chaser so crystal in other words is just surrounded by hokies which is super important. I think I'm just GonNa give her an honorary diploma point But I mean starting company is hard for everyone out there. especially if you have other gigs and you know other full-time jobs. But it's so much fun it gets me out of bed in the morning. It's entrepreneurship is exciting. To talk about every day being different you know. The highs and lows are real-life. Everybody needs to.

And there's there's a calculation that every Republican asked to be doing every Republican senator which is if wishing fairy told you that you would keep the Senate either way would you be happier with president trump or without him and I think if Republicans are sure they can keep their majority. They'd be happier without him. Yeah and and Jonathan Alan. There's another big question for Mitch. McConnell and other Republicans. Let's just assume assume for a moment. Mitch McConnell himself that. He was not up for reelection election next year. That big question is who do they really want at the top of the ticket next year do they really want. Donald trump at the top of the Republican can ticket next year. I mean the truth is for Mitch. McConnell like any congressional leader his priority is keeping his caucus as big as it possibly can be keeping a majority in his case He'll do the calculation closer to the election as to whether Donald trump is better for that. 'cause or Mike Pence's better for that. 'cause I suspect that they think that an impeachment and removal is such a jarring odd consequence that it's difficult to recover from but We'll we'll wait and see. And David the the lesson here on trying to nationalize impeach the impeachment 'cause trying to nationalize the defense of Donald Trump if he wanted to run that test as a Republican and and kind of fix it. So that you'd get a positive result you would take that test to replace like say Kentucky. which is what they did? It's not like it's some swing state or they took it to Kentucky and they they couldn't get Kentucky voters to stand up and say yes. We are opposed to impeachment. Look the story of the trump presidency has just this that in in twenty twenty The Republicans discovered that their classic cocktail was not palatable anymore to American voters and so in two thousand sixteen they said well what if we I put a little donald trump spicy seasoned salt around the Rim of the cocktail it doesn't become more palatable and they discovered a lot of actually more economically hard pressed S. culturally conservative white voters especially men will drink the cocktail with trump sees me what medicaid plus trump vote shows in Kentucky is trump seasoning. No longer longer works. And the Republican message of less Medicaid for you people at tasting at their not enjoying it. Yeah and Jonathan. What's so important about that is this is exactly what Donald Trump trump has tried to do? Donald Trump has spent his presidency trying to take healthcare away from people trying to repay repeal completely obamacare and so the the campaign run against Matt. Bevin and Kentucky is the campaign you would run against Donald Trump national. It's so hard to tell sometimes Florence because the president talks about How he's going to preserve various things? That government is trying to take away. At the very same time goes out on the stump and talks about preserving preserving Medicare. But then you look in his budget and it's undercutting Medicare. He says he's going to preserve a pre existing condition protections and their government is doing to undermine and You would think that that's Something that the Democratic presidential candidates are going to spend a Lotta time on in this primary and eventually nominee will spend a lot of time in on in the general. The Election Democratic candidates did in the midterms to great success and trump will have to defend what his record is and David. I think the Democrats have enough video video of Donald Trump saying he was going to repeal obamacare completely That they'll be able to. I think pretty clearly make the case. Donald Trump was trying to do and has in many ways. Done the same thing that Matt Bevin was doing and that video will do one more thing and you'll see that tomorrow. which is these things get inside Donald? Trump's head I mean the the real natural politicians and the OBAMAS the Clintons the George W Bush is they. I mean they're like boxers they take a punch shake it off their back in the ring. Donald Trump these these things get inside his head. They work on him and his own game begins to deteriorate as he takes on board things more professional politicians. which shake off? And forget the next day. Jonathan Allen Ellen. How long do we have to wait for the trump tweets blaming all of this unmet t minus three seconds warrants? Hell how long do we. We have to go before the Eleventh Hour and David. That's another part of this is that Donald Trump is now sitting in the White House. Tonight watching this stewing thinking who does he blame. Who who's who was the nut in his operation who let him go to Kentucky All of that how he dealt with and trump world tomorrow. I just glance glance at twitter a second ago. I think that's already happening. I think there's already a statement from the trump campaign saying that donald trump almost successfully dragged matt. Bevin over the finish line. That is the they're they're keeping the blame on him and now every Republican officeholder has to think wait a moment. Wait a minute. Is that going to happen to me. Are you going to kick me if I get into trouble. David from Jon Allan Thank you both for joining us with this live coverage on election night. Really Appreciate Hey. It's Chris as you know. Sometimes it's good to just take a step back from the day-to-day onslaught plot news.
"nbc news" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"Ask in our public schools because we believe in the next generation of Kentucky and our schools are the foundation of our communities. Every kid has the right to get a world class education that opens up every door that they can walk through and we can only provide those opportunities by more election news tonight including in the state of Virginia. GENU- let's go straight to Steve Kornacki for the latest on Kentucky Steve. NBC is calling a shared the apparent winner of what. What are we waiting for for confirmation there? Yeah so basically. You can see the margin here. It is inside of one percent here. This is a four tenths of one percent. Sent the margin here. Five thousand eight hundred and one votes every precinct we have every precinct in the state accounted for. What is happening now? Now is Matt Bevin. The governor has there it is we just had A. I wanted to figure out what just happened there. I think I may know this. This is where we had discrepancy. And I wasn't sure in this this Woodford county right outside of Lexington. Our numbers were lagging behind the associated. Press's we were trying to figure out this is. This is the one discrepancy discrepancy. That was on the board. What it basically did I apologize? Lawrence's literally happen as we right here but basically it updated a few thousand votes the totals for Bevan and for Bashir. But you can see it's still lands at about five thousand. Do the quick math five thousand one hundred and Twenty six votes fifty one twenty six. That's what it lands at right here. Matt Bevin. The governor has said he's not conceding this election what he does right now is he has the right if he wants. He didn't say necessarily he's doing this. He has the right to file bio for a recount. There's no automatic recount provisions in Kentucky. But what he would have to do if he wants to take that route is he'd have to go to court. He'd have to go to a judge apparently in his his speech tonight. He alluded to discrepancies. Not Clear exactly what he might be referring to irregularities excuse me but he would have to put that in writing. He'd have to go to a judge he'd have to to get a judge to say okay. There's going to be a recount but there's a possibility he's going to seek that there's a possibility the judge is gonNA give him that and Steve Terms of vote count tonight. What what more are we going to see in in Kentucky? That's it. I think what you just saw there in Woodford county was the last one it was. It was a thing where the Associated Press is doing a running counter. This and we've been doing a running count. We were trying to reconcile it. That's the little change there you just saw but otherwise I said every precinct in this state is accounted for so if Bevan is ultimately going to become the winner of this race he would have to get a recount. A recount have to turn up something that we are not seeing in these results anymore precincts that come in Kentucky tonight that we put Bevan ahead. Steve put this Democratic Gang just in the vote count in Kentucky in perspective. Donald Trump won the state by thirty points. I I hear you see a Democratic candidate. Statewide running for governor the day after Donald Trump went down there and said this election is about impeachment actually really put in tried to put impeachment on the ballot in Kentucky and for the Democrat to even make the race. This close we would be talking about it. Even if the Democrat was coming in the second I think there are a couple of things that happened. I think when you're a Democrat and you win a governor's race in Kentucky. A lot of things have to go right for you. There are two things I draw your attention to one. I've been talking about tonight right. It's in the suburbs. It's Cincinnati is. This is the northern part of Kentucky. Here on the other side of the Ohio River there is Cincinnati's suburbs of Cincinnati. These three counties that Kinda the judge out here population wise these are pretty big counties. They make up about ten percent of the state population. They are traditionally Republican bastions. Traditionally Republican candidates get pretty pretty big pluralities out of here. Help them win statewide. That is not what happens. Not you see. Two of these. Three counties in the Cincinnati suburbs actually flipped and went democratic. Went for Bashir. You're in the third. That's Boone County. Read one right here. Bevan ran ten points off what he did. The last time around easier counties trump did well in two thousand sixteen but tonight they went far towards if the Democrats away from Republicans I think that is part Lawrence of the National Story. We've been talking about suburbs across the country. That's where you've seen the most dramatic movement in the last couple of years. There's during the trump presidency away from the Republican Party of Donald Trump and toward the Democratic Party. That was part of the story in Kentucky Tonight. The other part of the story in Kentucky Tonight Coal. Oh Country Rural Kentucky Eastern Kentucky in particular here Kentucky. He's an interesting state because we say trump state red-state wasn't always a red state way feedback. Kentucky was a deeply blue state democratic state it was blue collar culturally conservative but it was democratic. And what happens here is in eastern Kentucky you start to. CD's blue counties here check this out. This is a good example. Bath County Small County here but share wins at fifty two forty six. How big of a departure from twenty sixteen is that look at this? Donald Trump got sixty seven percent. Here in two thousand sixteen. He won by thirty seven. Bevan lost this county six. You see this throughout here. Trump won by twenty two. Who By nineteen you can go up? See Nicholas County. Here's another when trump won by forty one points in two thousand sixteen Bevin couldn't even carry it tonight so it's an an interesting phenomenon here where you have to call it. Incest truly democratic. These are folks who live in rural they were born Democrats. They've kept their democratic credit registration. A lot of cases but they've started voting for Republicans at the national level. They certainly voted for Donald Trump. Boy Did they go. Back to share in the Democrats VAUGHN Hilliard our reporter reporter down. There was saying one of the theories. That's out there is one of the reasons you heard your mentioned this in his speech. His Father Steve Bashir the former governor. He did very very well in these areas and it might have been impart the Bashir feeling name might have reassured some of these voters and brought them back into the democratic fold but you had looked trump last night giving being that speech trump coming to Kentucky. This these are exactly the kind of places he thought he was going to fire up and he was going to get behind Bevan. Carry over the top Bevin need to do better in coal country trick Steve. Thank you very much. You've the queued up von Hilliard. For US perfectly. We're going to go live now to NBC. News von Hilliard at Bashir Headquarters in Louisville Von What's the reaction there. Steve said it throughout the night all of a sudden. It's these numbers were coming in. And they were slowly coming in in there. I was talking.
"nbc news" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"The last word with Lawrence O'Donnell leaving Rachel but we have the big results especially the big results in Kentucky where according to the Republican Party their view of the case in Kentucky okay the Socialists won tonight. Listen to this this is this is one of the ads and excerpt of one of the ADS. They were running right down to the end Socialists. In Washington Washington wants to impeach trump and take us backward. Andy Bashir is part of the radical resistance. And yet somehow somehow Andy Bashir this year one in a state that trump won by thirty points wacky right and Donald Trump went down there and put it on the line and told them last night. You know this will be bad for me. If I lose he he once again did that. Trump thing of personalizing that race to be about him and if he wants to make it about him. It's a very bad for him. That's right and if you've got if you're going to play it your trough that way you're going to have to pay for it later on exactly. Yeah and now what. What we're we're now seeing what's going to be fascinating to see what's the Republican spin? After this we know what the Republicans was GonNa be which is Donald Trump went down there and save the day. Okay so so what is it now. What what do they say tomorrow? What is what does Mitch McConnell Thinking Tonight Mitch? McConnell's numbers in Kentucky. His popularity is not good to to put it mildly Mitch McConnell is up for reelection next year. What does this mean for him? I was talking to von Hilliard. Who is down at Andy? Bashir headquarters earlier this hour. Actually as we were just getting in the NBC News Call about share being the apparent winner. And what Vaughn was saying at the time that that call came in was that Mitch McConnell's numbers look basically Siklie exactly like Matt Bevins' numbers in Kentucky and this is the last statewide race. That's going to happen there before. Mitch McConnell is up statewide to try to hold onto his his Senate seat and so every race is different. That'll be a presidential election year and there'll be a lot going on but it can't look good. I imagine that the Republicans will try to make this a personal loss for Matt. Bevin that that doesn't say anything about anybody. Rachel the winner has taken the stage in Kentucky. We're going to share headquarters right now. In Louisville. Let me first I start by thanking my running mate Jacqueline Coleman..
"nbc news" Discussed on The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell
"Now it's time for the last word with Lawrence Donald Evening Learning Rachel and that explains the Nancy Pelosi and Mitch McConnell both talking about the possibility of this movie into the Senate around Thanksgiving yes because the calendar doesn't make sense unless there's a crunch factor in there that we haven't been able to see from the initial scheduling the depositions that mostly means the staff working weekends on the depositions we'll we'll see how many members actually show up weakened position Sarah Point thank you thank you we'll be operating principle of Donald Trump's presidency is to govern by lie and so he lied today when explaining why he surrendered due to the resistance once again this weekend donald trump's surrendered to the resistance that rose up after he announced his illegal and unconstitutional plan to the next seven meeting to a trump hotel so that the American government and foreign governments would be paying donald trump directly at the same time we'll get to that later in this hour trump lies and stupidity go hand-in-hand Donald Trump depends on a sort of collective stupidity for people to believe his lies they morning he issued a deeply disturbing tweet about the situation in Syria and the Kurds and in the tweet he lied about bringing our soldiers home he also got the secretary evinces name wrong and that's what makes it a classic trump presidential tweet the combination of deceit and stupidity with carelessness calling Defense Secretary Mark Casper Mark Esperanto got trump a lot of really hugh on twitter yesterday and a lot of laughs but I couldn't laugh this time sometimes I do sometimes laugh at trump nonsense and sometimes I just can't and I'm sure you well have those moments can't quite tell when they're gonNA come it's kind of a mood thing times when you laugh about trump and time you just can't for whatever reason this one was one of those moments for me where I couldn't laugh and the Mark Esperanto tweet did not strike me as funny it actually felt deadly serious normally typos on twitter ain't nothing but a Typo is when you type something by mistake that you know is wrong and you usually go correct it pretty quickly there's no reason for anyone in the world old to be confident that the president of the United States actually knew the real name of his defense secretary when he typed him as s onto but if we just limit ourselves to the typos just the typos in trump tweets and an official White House statements written by the least competent White House staff in history the number of written mistakes by Donald Trump and the people working for him in the White House is now something close to the number of stars in the sky and in a typical presidency you can spend a year looking for a Typo in an official White House Document and not find one these mistakes mean a lot from Donald Trump and the people working for you him they just don't care about details they don't know how to care about details and that explain anes has constant refusal to care about details he doesn't know how explains everything about Donald Trump's presidency from his deadly decision about the Kurds in Syria to his alleged criminal conduct described in the report and revealed in his own words in his phone call with the president of Ukraine he does not know how to care about details and so we'll take some time at the end of the hour tonight to consider in all seriousness the clear and present danger of having a president of the United States who might or might not have thought for a few hours yesterday four the White House corrected his tweet that his defense secretary is Mark Esperanto Donald Trump's lifelock long inability to care about details including details like the law is what has him on the verge of impeachment by the House representatives where the House Democrats are now working on an outline of what will become the impeachment case against the president in an exclusive report tonight. NBC News Says House Democrats are zeroing in our frame work for their impeachment case against President Donald Trump that will center on a simple abuse of power narrative involving the president's actions regarding Ukraine according to multiple people familiar with the deliberations Democratic House Committee chairs and leaders are still debating the need for possible additional articles of impeachment or charges that extend beyond the presence dealing with Ukraine but according to NBC News Speaker Nancy Pelosi has been adamant that the case against trump must be targeted and easy to communicate in order to build public support according to those familiar with discussions tomorrow morning ambassador Bill Taylor the Act some Basha to Ukraine who sent a text message calling a quid pro quo over military assistance to Ukraine crazy that was his word which is very easy to understand it is he is scheduled to be deposed tomorrow morning now now that it appears absolutely certain that there are more than enough democratic votes for impeachment in the house resentatives there is also a crack in the Republican Wall in the House representatives on Friday Republican Congressman Francis Rooney said that he is open to the possibility of voting for impeachment telling reporters I've been real mindful of the fact that during Watergate all the people I knew said Oh they're just abusing Nixon and it's a witch hunt out it wasn't a witch hunt it was really bad when asked if the president's dealings with Ukraine amount of impeachable offense Carbon Rooney said this I don't know I want to study it some more I want to hear the next set of testimony next week from a couple more passengers but it certainly very very serious and troubling and the very next day on Saturday congressman Rooney's boldness came into clearer perspective when he announced that he is not going to run for re election to his house and the Senate Mitt Romney is becoming increasingly comfortable with the role of Republican senator who might vote to convict Donald Trump in his impeachment trial in the Senate in an interview with the Atlantic's McKay coppins Senator Rondi said he will make up his mind signed about the impeachment case when he hears all of the evidence at the impeachment trial Senator Romney told McKay coppins at this stage I am strenuously avoiding trying in to make any judgment and Mitt Romney did another interview this weekend with axios on HBO ruling on TV and saying will you investigate my political opponent is wrong it's a mistake It was shocking for the in my opinion for the president to do so and a mistake for him to do so I can't imagine coming to different point of view we certainly can't have president's asking foreign countries to provide something of political value that is after all against the law leading off our discussion tonight or NBC News Correspondent Heidi Prisma Heidi broke the report about Democrats be focusing on the abuse of power in their articles of impeachment MSNBC political analyst is with higher let me start with you and your breaking news reporting about what the Democrats are considering a window now whether Nancy Pelosi or their whether nets Posey wants once start within policy a single article of impeachment that is simply about the phone call with the president of Ukraine or the possibility of including say elements of the Mullahs report obstruction of justice in separate articles of HBO we do know Lawrence that right now she wants a simple article with an umbrella being abuse of power and underneath that everything that has offend with regards to Ukraine which included includes that phone call it includes the reports of a quid pro quo about the military aid it includes Shing aside the former ambassador to Ukraine in order to install the president handpicked confidants who referred to themselves as the three Amigos who then helped to push the Ukrainians to try and cook up charges against the binds it includes all of those things but it is narrowly focused in the sense that it does just focus on Ukraine Lawrence still under debate is the second wave of charges which would be related to obstruction of justice contempt of Congress believe it or not that's actually a much more difficult and contentious one to decide on whether that is going to be just Ukraine where they think they have a really strong case the October Eighth White House letter from Pat Sip Baloney the White House counsel basically telling Congress to to you know go go you know where and and the they're just not going to comply with anything and whether they're going to include anything on Muller and obstruction Lawrence I'm told there it's a little more difficult because Congress where did get the chief witness in the obstruction charges Don mcgann to testify before Congress and they don't want to give any excuses for anybody to not support what they believe is a clear cut case of an impeachable offense when it comes as well to obstruction Heidi indication in your reporting of what the process will be how will the Democrats arrive at a consensus of what the shape of the articles should the big that's still really early Lawrence and I must stress that in my reporting that while there is this big umbrella focus on the narrative of abuse of power. The speaker's office did caution me that the actual legal drafting of articles has not begun because they haven't collected all of the evidence yet and all of the information but historically what would happen is that all of the committees would send in their best information Jerry Nadler the judy committee chairman has already called on all committees to send their best information to judiciary which would then be tasked with drying up specific articles but make no mistake the speaker is going to be the one who drives this all and who makes all of these decisions as to specifically how many articles that are going to be and right now again we're a snapshot in time but according to my reporting the thing that has been decided is the abuse of power narrative that they will hammer out something obstruction slash contempt of Congress but the additional articles at this time are unlikely now that could change with pushback from various stakeholders and committee chair people who've been doing months of investigative work on issues like emoluments who believe that the president is clearly violating that constitution by being continuing to you know own his companies and benefit from the presidency with the trump hotel in Washington and foreign governments there taking up in order to curry favor with him but right now we're just looking at abusive power in Ukraine and then something separate on obstruction and Ukraine and maybe something from the Miller Report Mika with your experience working in the House on the Democratic staff side how does that sound to you and do you think the House General Democrats would agree to that approach I think it's always a challenge to manage a caucus diverses one that's in the majority you've got people with a lot of different competing political interests here and a lot of different kinds of concerns but one thing that we've learned is that Nancy Pelosi is a master politician and her ability to under Dan exactly where the caucus is what they can support and what the political implications are that is unmatched and then she's going to be able to marry that with what is the legal ace for impeachment of the President I think that her instinct make it as simple as possible to understand with umbrella of abuse of power is really helpful all too often democrats can really get bogged down in process arguments.
