"Again, they can't even live up to the social media standards. How is he able to live up to the standard that we demand right now? Both of you are going to have some standard what standard? Double Standard move the goal post every two days. Why don't you call your brother? Your brother right who runs the city which children are being trafficked and abused number one city in the world you care about children. You don't give a rip about children talk about this president know what you're talking. He's an idiot. He even quoted said the president almost immune that's right. Almost immune didn't lie. Doctors will corroborate that. Throughout not Anthony Fauci but doctors would. Guy Largest hypocrite the fact that this guy on television today, you know blows my Don Lemon the whole crew, just wrap them all up on a ship take passports and ship them to Guatemala or. Well and he has he has the audacity to call it state TV when he's the one who's having his brother on. So clearly a conflict of interest doing a little you know Abbott and Costello routine instead of asking him actual hard hitting questions grant of never seen a mass, his brother about the standards do you put infected Chinese virus patients in a nursing homes and? Kill everybody is that standard procedure for governor of a state that should be recalled because of his actions of killing people in nursing homes I remember seeing them ask that question. I've never seen him talk about journalistic standards. CNN certainly doesn't have him. He thinks facebook and twitter or are the pillars of standards of what is right and what is wrong. Give me a break. This guy needs a reality. The standards we demand, who's the we by the way who not me or posse? WanNa go ask the American people if. They're not in your camp buddy it is. It is also interesting to hear him talk president trump e lies so bad when I recall hearing a story, a little story about Chris Cuomo Contracting Corona Virus getting in trouble for breaking quarantine rules going cycling and having some altercation with some gentlemen and then all of a sudden ended this big joyous real. Yes. where he finally came up out of his basement when he was done with quarantine as if he had never seen the light of day this entire time. I feel like that was a pretty well documented lies. So it's interesting to hear Chris Cuomo talking about other people lying when it comes to corona. Liberal hypocrisy and it's on display every night on CNN named it whether it's Don Lemon or whether it's Chris Cuomo. MSNBC Rachel Maddow and the rest of those those bombs I mean, this is what you get. He will watch that crap. Go ahead. It'll make your blood boil every night I would argue tune in this era, the blaze. Thanks I. Hope that's what they're doing. If they're if they're here right now I don't know I mean I'm sure that the five people who still watch Chris Cuomo show was really happy with his coverage I guess We've got a lot more coming up I. We want to thank our sponsor. This segment keeps if your hair maybe isn't. As full as it's used to as it used to don't be embarrassed, it's fine. It happens to a lot of people. It's in your genes. There's nothing you can really do about it unless you look at keeps. All right. So keeps you can get instead of going to your doctor you gotTa go into the office you gotTa wear the mask because everyone's making to wear masks in the doctor's office. You gotTA. Talk to them about embarrassing stuff. We all know that you are not gonna go to the doctor for anything even if you're sick right so keeps we'll let you actually do this. They will help you keep your hair from the comfort of. Your own home, you will get the same doctor recommended FDA approved hair loss treatments, but they're going to give you the generic version.

Deutsche Bank turned over Trump financial documents to New York prosecutors

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

"Chris Cuomo, interviewing the government, New York who's also his older brother every night for what is essentially a PR workshop for the governor. That's a news event because the scandal at the same time You know if this is something that people want to see, because it makes them angry, you know, And so I think Carol actually have a very good point. Which is that a lot of his calculated just to get the angry at a lot of it is calculated in the same way that MSNBC's calculated to appease to its resistance faith like Rachel Maddow, peddling Russian theories every night. That's not because I don't think she actually didn't believe that. I think she knows that her base does well, and it seems to me that most people are going to come to know of these stories, not by watching them live.

Biden to narrow VP list. But don't expect a pick next week

"Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden says, he will choose his vice presidential running mate next week and already things are starting to get interesting. We know the former vice president is committed to choosing a woman to join him on the ticket in November from there. Something of a shortlist has emerged including all of the women that you see on your screen here. According to one report from CNN. At least three of the women have been the subject of more serious consideration including Senator Kamala Harris and former presidential candidate Kamala Harris Karen Bass, the California congresswoman and Susan Rice the former Obama Administration National Security Advisor.

"Our website, you could send a message directly to Mitch McConnell to let him know where you stand on that. I know of no other organization that's really active on this, and most Republicans have signed on to it. There is actually a bipartisan majority in both houses that have signed on to it. These Republicans are scared of their own shadow. They're afraid of opposing funding from the media. Maybe this way the media won't attack them quite so much. It's so sad how they've been believed. What Since both houses have bipartisan majorities, it really comes down to whether or not Mitch McConnell what we let it happen and whether or not Trump will sign it into law. And I think if it gets forest trumpets probably going to be too late. So that makes Mitch McConnell so incredibly essential in the deal making process, And he's getting all kinds of pressure from the big, powerful media industry groups with high powered lobbyist and expensive abilities to make politicians do what they like. He needs also hear from the people who are paying the bills. He needs to also hear from the people who don't want their money taken by force to fund newspapers that hate their views. But the newspapers have customers, obviously, and so does the media outlets that we were just talking about, too. If they find a profit margin, and whatever it is, they're delivering. They're going to keep delivering it. Well, it seems they don't have enough customers because some of them like McClatchy filed for bankruptcy, and I never begrudge anybody turning an honest profit. If Rachel Maddow and MSNBC are able to be horribly left wing and sort of prophet doing it good on him. That's a free enterprise system would really get me morally outraged is that for years, these newspapers alienated mainstream Americans. They alienated conservatives. They alienated libertarians, and they always said, Well, it's a free market system if they don't like it, you know, people don't want to buy that product. I want to buy that daily newspaper. You know, that's where we'll go out of business. The market will determine it well, the market has determined Americans have rejected these papers. Like McClatchy. They had all the inherent advantages when printer to digital and went on line became a huge thing. Being at well known daily newspaper gave you a huge advantage over any new online news site. Yet they failed because they alienated their audiences. The free enterprise system made it clear they're failures. So instead of getting your money voluntarily with you at the news stand, put the quarter in there they now want to take it by force. It's like 50 cents or 75 cents. Now, I think in the news, of course you would know the newspaper. Exactly. And of course, the argument rages to about Back in the day. It seems like journalists at least cloaked what they were doing and told the public they were impartial, and they worked hard to being impartial. But now it's all about activist journalism. Everybody just wears it on their sleeve. This is who I am. You follow him on Twitter and you see where their brain is, anyway, so they can't hide it anymore. You're exactly right. And there's two strikes. I don't know, which is worse. There are the activists. Journalists literally believe I'm giving up objectivity because the times require it were unprecedented times. We're going to go up against literally Hitler. I've got to be an activist. That's one type. Then you've got another type. You've got some of these old school journalists who openly admit that their publishing stories they know not to be honest, just because if you want to make a buck, if you want to get the clicks, If you want to get people read your stories, you have to be sensationalist and write articles for that audience. There's a large amount of, you know, rabid leftists who want to read anti trump stories, no matter what. And if there's nothing in the daily news cycle that honestly accurately, anti Trump will just make stuff up, So I don't know what's worse. The activist journalists or the folks who know better, but I'm making it up for profit. I went to William Randolph Hearst mansion out in California once and there is money, apparently in yellow journalism. Great talking to you and Thank you for having me. Alright? Adam Gillette. He's from accuracy in media. Not all tests of the same when it comes to testing for the Corona virus. Michael Doherty of any lab tests now in Stirling says consumers need to do their homework. There's two categories right? There's the swab, which is do I have active to these? That's not an antibody test. Okay, so if you don't have symptoms by and large Anyway. Having this swab is relevant to see if you were just recently contaminate, which is highly unlikely. That's different than antibodies. So any bodies are like you get the flu shot. You build up a defence develop antibodies that shows you've been exposed and our bodies will fight things off, and you never know exactly how affected anybody's. They're going to be because every human beings different Now there's a ton of different antibody testing. You're gonna have to do a little more homework. Basically, you should ask your lab what antibodies test for because there's more than one and you should ask them what they used.

Michigan tries new approaches to coronavirus testing

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

FDA Nears Decision Authorizing Covid-19 Treatment With Convalescent Plasma

"There is a decision near on authorizing covert nineteen treatments with something called convalescent plasma even seen some ads about it on TV where celebrities say that if you've had covid nineteen, you can help be part of the solution by donating blood that can be turned into convalescent plasma. What does that mean? So. When people recover from this illness, they develop antibodies against the virus and you could take that blood in separate plasma fraction out of it in give that to people that are in the hospital sick with corona virus with the idea that this antibody will help them recover in. There are multiple clinical trials going on right now, there is some data from China that's coming out and we're really evaluating to see whether this is. Where I work at an academic medical center and some of my patients have gotten convalescent plasma. So this is something that we hope will work in May be a way to deal with the severe severe cases and get them out of the hospital quick prevented from going on a ventilator but we want to see the data I I haven't seen unequivocal evidence yet that this actually works, but we are very hopeful WanNa see the data.

They don't teach that to, you know, have you as ladies heard that for? Well, I am not. I know now I have not now Why are you so all of a sudden fluster?

When you met your husband? He was 10. Can you imagine being 10 years old and this walks into your life? He was 10 and I talked like I taught him all sorts of things. I taught him how to drive a stick shift, right? I got it took him to get his driver's permit. I taught him all sorts of things about just life. But didn't dabble into the hole. I didn't tell him those sorts of games your point, Rob, There's a lot of videos that take on those types of sudden visit genre for that down reports that very popular What's your guess on what this major national announcement's going to be at 11 30 from the New York State attorney general? My guess is it's going to be something that's crap. These things are never as big as you think They're going to be exact, and that's on both sides of political scale. Remember, we had released the memo for the Republicans, and it was a turd. And every time the Democrats having bombshell, we're going to bring Mueller out there. It's a turd, every single person who claims they have a big announcement turn. So you think this is Rachel Maddow out releasing the tax records? Essentially, probably it's going to be something that CNN or MSNBC is going to make a big, huge deal. Love and everybody in the barber shop or a restaurant across America will say, I do not care about that. I totally agree with just the bombs, every bombshells like a sparkler. They were overusing the word bombshell in his nation. Here's an interesting story from daily mail that I wanted to get into because I hear all the time. Now all African Americans want the police to funded to fund the police. This that Daily Mail has a new article out, saying the 61% Of African Americans continue to want police funded in their cities in their neighborhoods. I mean, why wouldn't they? I feel like this is just common sense, right? So what you're saying is that social media is not really life. I'm shocked because you scroll through social media. You think we should be living in 1/3 World country right now, where it's just like the purge all the time or just media in general. Yeah. Yeah, findings coming. A poll released by Gallup in which 61% want the police presence in their neighborhoods to remain the same despite calls to defund and reform policing across the country. I mean, the data proves that these loud mouth people, one of complete psychos and two, they don't represent the majority of Americans. Yes, and yes, And we've said for a long time social media is not really life. You scroll through your Twitter feed your Facebook feed the loudest people don't speak on behalf. Off of the majority.

Report: Unpublished White House document puts 18 states in the coronavirus ‘hot zone’

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

"The. Show weeknights at nine eastern on MSNBC. Thanks for being with us here tonight very happy to have you here. Our guest tonight is Mary L. Trump the niece of the current president of the United States. When the president's? What is it fifty Fourth National Security Adviser John? Bolton sought earlier this year to publish his book about his time in the trump White House You may recall. There were lots of threats from the White House and from the president personally, either was a concerted legal effort, including an effort by the US Department of Justice to try to stop. John Bolton from publishing that book, and that's the kind of thing this this attorney general bill is happy to do for this president. But John Bolton's publisher Simon and Schuster They really went to the mattresses for him. They fought tooth and nail. They defied the White House, Bluster and threats. They fought every legal action and they got that thing out. and. Simon and Schuster has the First Amendment on their side, and they were righteously and effectively standing up for the First Amendment Rights of themselves and their author for sure. To be honest, though Simon and Schuster also knew that it was really important that the Bolton book hit bookstores because they knew it would sell a gazillion copies, and it did. The Bolton Book has been a huge bestseller something like eight hundred thousand copies in its first week. That was a record for Simon and Schuster. Until today when the same publisher just announced that Mary Trump's new book about her. The president, her account of her life in the trump family, and what she came to learn about her uncle, what she describes this as manifest unfitness for office We learned today that her book didn't sell eight hundred thousand copies in its first week. Like John Bolton's did. Her book sold nearly one million copies in one day. Sorry Mr. Bolton Merry trump. We'll have your seat bail. And congratulations to Simon Schuster for what is amounting to a bang-up summer for people saying absolutely horrifying things about what they know about this president from close proximity to him. So as I mentioned tonight, we're going to be joined here by Mary. Trump and you should know. That before she wrote this book, She was not exactly in hiding. This is obviously her debut as an internationally known person but. She has pursued a distinguished academic career including recognition as a literature student at Tufts, which may explain. In part why she's a notably good writer, which I think is helping sell this book. She earned her PhD in clinical psychology contributed to widely cited books in that field. and she has she has been in the process in the past as a lower profile, but good standing member of the famous trump family. She was notably in the press before an instance where something went very very wrong inside that family, and you should know this for context. This is I'm going to quote this to you from. An article.

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.

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.

"That was much easier to pull off in the days before photo. Id and computerized records Donald. Who never lacked funds paid his buddy well. Now, it should be noted that the White House is vehemently denying that the president paid somebody to take his sat's. It should also be noted that the president has gone to great lengths to make sure that his transcripts and all of the records from his schooling have been all secret. From High School and college all the rest of it, so even the even the ambient details here are hard to check, but as as for his sister, Marianne, who married trump says did his homework for him when he was in college. Mary trump also alleges that donald trump pulled political strings to get his older sister Marianne appointed as a federal judge She recounts how. Donald Trump had his personal lawyer at the time Roy Cohn. Call and lobby Reagan Attorney General. Ed meese that his older sister should be nominated to the federal bench and she, of course was she got a federal seat became a fairly respected appellate court judge in the federal judiciary. But that brings us to some of the most interesting stuff here of all. and honestly onto something that we're waiting on right now from the US Supreme Court in a decision that could come as soon as tomorrow. It has always struck me. As one of the great overlooked jaw, droppers of the scandal ridden trump era. That just one of the things that's happened since he's been in office. Is that his older sister? Federal Judge Maryanne trump barry really did have to give up her lifetime seat on the federal bench in order to avoid a judicial ethics inquiry into a massive multimillion dollar alleged years long tax fraud scheme. That sheep reportedly engaged in with her family, including her brother. Who is the sitting president? We didn't even think of that. As one of the trump scandals, but like that's the that's bigger than any other presidential scandal of my lifetime. It's one of the forgotten scandals of this presidency I mean. There was there was billy Carter Right. There was Roger Clinton that was. Was the Neal Bush I. Mean there are there are presidential sibling embarrassments. But since when has a presidential sibling had to resign from the judiciary to avoid scrutiny of the thing she did with the president with taxes and their family money. From page one ninety three of the book quote, this Mary Trump, speaking voice, quote I met with Marianne her aunt. The president's older sister I met with Marianne again shortly after the article ran. She denied all of it. She was just a girl after all, she said on a piece of paper, requiring her signature. I've been put in front of her. She'd signed it. No questions asked. She said this article goes back sixty years. You know that's before it was judge. She said this as if the investigation had also ended sixty years before. She seemed unconcerned that there would be any repercussions. Although a court inquiry had been opened into her alleged conduct. All she had to do to put an end to that was retired as a judge. which she did thereby retaining her two hundred thousand dollars a year judicial pension. Well The article in question Mary Trump says I met with her again shortly after the article ran the article in question, the one that caused the president sister to resign her lifetime appointment as a judge because that was the only way she could preclude judiciary from running an inquiry into what she allegedly did. The article in question was of course, the Pulitzer Prize winning gigantic investigation into the president's financial past that the New York Times published in October two, thousand eighteen. That is where we learned from the Times has dogged reporting and from a ton of documents. They exclusively obtained. That's where we learned that. The president had received hundreds of millions of dollars from his father. not the one million dollar loan that he had long publicly claimed with his sole inheritance from his father. That's where we learned about the president and his family running this reported scheme by which they systematically undervalued their assets to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars, basically to cheat on paying taxes. That's where we learned that. The president has family created a went so far as to create a fake company to Siphon money out of their father's company without having to pay taxes on it. The scheme worked by marking up building and construction cost, but then president trump, and his siblings reportedly just pocketed the difference without ever paying any tax on that money. That reporting from the New York Times is also impart how Mary trump the author of this new book. Learned that the settlement. Brother agreed to concerning the. Trump's father's estate. That's how she learned, but the settlement that she and her brother agreed to with regard to that of state. Undervalued that state by hundreds of millions of dollars, thereby she says cheating her and her brother out of millions of dollars of their share of it. She also says that fraud that deliberate undervaluing of the father's estate. Is itself a fraud that means she doesn't have to abide by the confidentiality agreement. She signed as part of that settlement. That confidentiality agreement is part of how they are trying to stop her from publishing this book. She saying I signed it, but I signed it as part of the deal. That was a fraud because we've learned from the New York Times another reporting. Thanks to documents that I gave them that. The state was being settled by me. Signing that piece of paper was being drastically misrepresented as a way of cheating me, and so am I going to abide by the confidentiality? Confidentiality agreement no I'm not I'm publishing. And whether a restraining order. Pursuant to that confidentiality agreements still applies to her. It's still being litigated. But the book itself now isn't journalists, hands. And you know. Family Lore Family Legend family grudges fights.

"Difficulty she had in trying to prep material for writing that book, because even though she describes being set up with an office inside trump tower, and getting basically full access to the operations of the trump organization, even though she was even invited to listen in on speakerphone to lots of Mr Trump's phone calls that he was on all day. She says she could never actually figure out what he did in terms of work. He didn't really seem to do any work, so she couldn't figure out exactly what she was going to write about him. What she thought was going to be her saving grace for ghost writing. This vote came when her uncle Donald trump volunteered to her that he had started writing something for the book himself and she could use it. She says he was very excited about it. One night as I sat at home, trying to figure out how to piece together something vaguely interesting out of the uninteresting documents I've been poring over Donald called. He said when you come into the office. Tomorrow, Roan is going to have some pages for you. I've been working on material for the book. It's really good. He sounded excited. Finally I might have something to work with some idea about how to organize this thing I still didn't know what he thought about his comeback, or how he ran his business, or even what role he played in the deals, he was currently developing. But the next day Rona handed me a Manila containing about ten typewritten pages as promised I took it to my desk and began to read. When. I finished I wasn't sure what to think. It was clearly a transcript of recording. Donald had made which explained stream stream-of-consciousness quality. What it was was an aggrieved compendium of women he had expected to date, but who having refused him were suddenly the worst ugliest and fattest slobs he'd ever met. The biggest takeaways were that Madonna. The pop star chewed gum in a way. Donald found unattractive and that Katerina Witt a German Olympic. Figure Skater who had won two gold medals in four world championships will Katerina Witt. She had big cavs. Mary Trump concludes that chapter by saying quote. I stopped asking him for an interview. This theme of the President. Talks and thinks about women extends in weird fashion, even other members of his immediate family very beginning of the book were treated to a scene where the author Mary Trump. The president's niece is among a number of trump family members who are invited to the White House for a family dinner. In the spring of two thousand seventeen, just a couple of months after the president was first inaugurated at that dinner at the White House. The president surrounded by his surviving siblings and his nieces, nephews and his own children and their spouses. The president according to Mary Trump says this. Quote! Then Diet Coke. Glass in Hand Donald made some perfunctory remarks about my aunt's birthdays which we were celebrating. After which he gestured toward his daughter-in-law Laura, there he said I barely even knew who the f. she was honestly, but then she gave a great speech during the campaign in Georgia supporting me. I then Mary trump notes the president's son. Eric and Laura had been together for almost eight years. Who the heck is that my daughter-in-law, I didn't even know who the F she was honestly and Mary Trump's telling. He does not say EFI spells the F.. Word, Or. He says the word. I didn't know who the F. She was. Honestly he says this in front of the whole family. In front of his son to whom this young woman is married, and he says it in front of her says he didn't know who that F she was until she gave this speech about him, and then he noticed her. There's also a bizarre scene in which the author of the President's Niece Mary. Trump is introduced for the first time to the president's third wife to the car, the current first lady melania trump. And the way in which that scene is bizarre is because in Mary trump's telling the president lies about his niece. He lies tells a big weird lie about Mary trump. Right in front of Mary trump right in front of her. He lies about her while introducing her to his new wife. He tells Mrs Trump Melania that his niece Mary had a terrible drug problem. That she has bounced back from. And Mary says she said in the moment. WHOA, no, no I've never done drugs in my whole life. But he continues, and he continues to insist that she had a terrible drug problem that she bounced back from, and he continues to insist this in front of her. She says quote. He slid me. Look and smiled. He was embellishing the story for effect and he knew that I knew it. Say Fairly close member of the president's family. There's just written. This book that in part is about. Like if there's sort of a theme in the book. It's definitely a psychological analysis of the president and his father, and how he became the type of person that he is, but the the sort of plot point that you keep coming back to in like every anecdote about him, both with the family, and in dealing with the public and in business. It's just about how easily he lies. And that he will do so for any effect. And in this part of her family history, she suggesting that he does it basically for pleasure. that. It's one of the ways he enjoys himself. is to tell lies even in front of the people about whom those lies are being told and continuing to do it even though. The at least one of the people president while he's telling, the line knows he's doing so. He likes it. Unnerving! Irving in a pandemic when that's the president. Did you see today that he started hyping? Hydroxy Clark again from the White House as Corona Virus Miracle Cure. That give pleasure. Mary trump says again. He slipped me a look and smiled. Knowing that he was lying, knowing that I knew it. Since the book started sneaking out from under wraps today If you have heard one thing about it, you may have heard the allegation that married. Trump makes that the president paid somebody to take. His sat test to get into college. Here's how that is. Spelled out in the book quotes in September Nineteen Sixty four donald had been living at his parents house, and commuting thirty minutes to Fordham University in the Bronx, his attendance, at which he would avoid mentioning in the years to come. Donald was determined to secure a degree commensurate with his new ambitions at his father's company, even if it only secured him bragging rights aware of the reputation of the Wharton School of business at the University of Pennsylvania Donald set his sights on U. Penn.. Unfortunately, though even though his older sister, Marianne had been doing his homework for him at Fordham, she couldn't take his tests and Donald worried that his grade point average, which put him far from the top of his class would scuttle his efforts to get accepted at Penn to hedge his bets. He enlisted Joe Shapiro a smart kid with a reputation for being a good test taker to take his sat's four him..

Washington, DC - Virginia becomes first state to enact workplace coronavirus safety rules

"It's inevitable that some states that are doing relatively ok are going to band together to try to make policy together. If the federal government is just not going to work on this thing like were the United States for a reason, we thought that banding together as fifty states and doing stuff as a country would be a good idea for us, not only in the world, but for us in our individual states, if the federal government is not going to work on this thing that has killed one hundred twenty one thousand Americans in sixteen weeks with no signs of stopping while we are breaking new records all over the country including nationwide right now, if the federal government is just not going to work on it, then we'll four new smaller subgroups of United States. To try to work on it together. Since the federal government is just abandoning ship. So you've got the Tristate area that went through hell and high water, and is coming out of it, and has been there curve all the way down. You see those states now banding together and saying well. We're going to try to protect ourselves from states where this thing is out of control. Today, in Virginia, for example, it looks like that's going to be the first state in the country to issue their own statewide binding workplace safety rules for for what companies have to do to keep workers safe come from coronavirus in the workplace.

Larry Kramer, groundbreaking author and Aids activist, dies aged 84

"A man named Larry Kramer died and he's not a household name except in some households. he is in mine. He was the CO founder of gay men's health crisis which is one of the first and largest AIDS service organizations ever. He was also and this is what he'll go down in history for for he was the founder of act up which is called the AIDS coalition to Unleash Power. And what act up did what they aim to do was unleash the power of the communities that were being killed hand over fist by the AIDS epidemic in its first years an act up tactics in the mold of Larry Kramer were impolite and pushy and often Cathartic and ultimately very effective. There's really been nothing else like it in my lifetime. How would you define the objectives of we want to end the AIDS epidemic? Simple as that plane. Simple cleaning some by whatever means necessary. We tried being nice. I think we've had to resort to these tactics because nobody listens quite frankly we now have some seventy chapters around the world with over a quarter million members. So I think what's happening is that the backlash is not against us. The backlashes against the system more and more people are so furious that they perceive the government. Not doing anything in this case is is the is the end so desirable that any means justifies well. We are a non-violent organization. I don't think we're here to to make friends. We're here to raise the issues no matter what you do. X. Number of people are going to approve and x number. People aren't so you might as well get your message across the best way you can. You would allow. You're not making friends. I would allow that. Aids is a very complicated issue and that we are now at last beginning to make friends. And as I said I think the groundswell of new chapters of new members is very similar to what happened during the Vietnam War where people got so angry at the government that they were forced into this frustration. And I think that's definitely what happening now. It took fifty took ten years for the first one hundred thousand cases the next hundred thousand cases. They're all going to happen. In the next fifteen months took ten years for the first hundred thousand cases the next hundred thousand cases are going to happen in the next fifteen months and our case with this epidemic took three months to get to one hundred thousand dead in the last epidemic to kill tens of thousands of Americans and the AIDS epidemic. Act UP WAS ABOUT. The people most affected by the virus speaking for themselves rather than being ignored or spoken for or worst of all spoken about it was also about unapologetic uncompromising anger at government response. That was slow and stupid and callous and not driven by science and ultimately fatal to thousands of US peaceful. Yes but angry loud at times. Profane unafraid confrontational confrontational protests backed up by willingness to do the real work of ending the epidemic

"And we've got to change it talked to you about sort of how you see yourself fitting into Democratic Party politics at this point interesting news today about Steve Bullock. He was in and out in a hot minute. And the presidential race and Democrats are ecstatic today about the reports that he is going to jump into that Senate rate send Montana because he's perceived to be the best shot at winning back that the Democrats which would go along way toward getting Mitch McConnell out of Control of the Senate now when he was running for president part of the reason he articulated for why he was running for president because he worried that the primary was two left he were the policies like Medicare for all your signature. Healthcare policy was going to be alienating to too many potential Democratic voters so in a universe in which you're the leading war one of the two leading candidates for the nomination you may be the nominee. Steve Bullock is a very important democratic Senate nominee. Potentially in Montana. Can you help him get elected or do you have to keep your distance that he will he will make decisions but of course? I can help them at the. I've heard this argument a whole lot of time. I believe that in the general election the way you be trump. Is that the largest voter turnout in history. This country do not underestimate donald trump. You'll have endless amounts of money. Because he doesn't believe in the rule of law He will combine federal agencies with his own campaign. He has loyal group of supporters. So it's going to be so easy to beat them but I believe that it will be very hard to beat him when you're running a old fashioned type of campaign when you're running a you know the same old same old. You need energy. You need excitement. We need to bring working class people into the campaign some of them may have voted for trump. We need to bring young people into the campaign. Maybe who never voted before? And you talk about Medicare for all Medicare for all is wildly popular with working class and lower income people who understand that we have a dysfunctional health care system. We are spending twice as much and by the way I would love to debate Joe Biden on this issue. Give us an hour on. Msnbc all right where we can talk about how anybody could defend a system in which we're spending twice as much per capita on healthcare as the people of any other country and yet eighty seven million uninsured thirty thousand die. Half a million people go bankrupt every year because a medically related debt and we spent far and away the highest prices the world for prescription drugs. You want to defend that system. Let's do it. I think that that is an issue that wins that speaks the needs of working families people the test the greed and the corruption of the pharmaceutical industry is president of the United States. I will take them on. You know I'm GonNa ask you the follow-up question now about turnout because you you as long as I have been talking to you about American politics you have made this case and I have. I believe it that turnout is the difference in that when it comes to progressive politics in particular increased turnout gets you and increase shot of not only changing Democratic Party but changing the country. And the turnout is not there for you. The turn out is the turnout does not look good. Thus far in the Democratic primary we can talk about that in detail. But I know you're aware of it but let me just say this in terms of young people. I mean one of the issues that should be talked about to his credit and I wish we could do better. Joe Biden is doing very very well with people. Sixty five rolled. We're not doing phenomenally. Well with people thirty or undone now. Which Group of people is there? More potential to grow the base the bring people in clearly. Young people historically have not voted in the kinds of numbers that one would like them to vote. It's going up but it is nowhere near as high as it is with all it's not going up and that's with your campaign right now. Firing on all cylinders and all the benefit you out from all the amazing organizing you didn't 2016. No states last night's on increase in young voters as a percentage of the electorate compared with twenty sixteen in in North Carolina and Tennessee and Virginia even here in Vermont Young voters made up a smaller proportion of the electorate than in twenty sixteen. Why are fewer young people turning out in twenty twenty? I mean what I will tell you is that an I what we tripled. We increase by thirty three percent. The number of young people who participate. I'm not familiar with these statistics. I really haven't seen them but look. This is the challenge that we have. We have the lowest voter turnout of almost every major country on earth less than sixty percent poor people in America by very big numbers. Do not vote. How do we bring them into the political process? Why do they not go? Why are young people not only? This is tough stuff. And you're right. We are trying to do that. I understand that it is easier to bring older. People have been voting for their whole lives but we are working really hard to try to bring people out. I think in the general election we will be successful. I WANNA I WANNA go back to that in terms of the general election how it might be different but on this question of working class voters in Virginia. Virginia was the one St yesterday where we actually did see a bit of a surge in voters without a four year college degree. In Virginia it was up in terms of raw numbers and the proportion from two thousand sixteen but Joe Biden carried. Those voters two to one and we didn't see a surge and working class voters and other states. And because it's the because it's so central to your idea of what your brand of politics is why people should get involved in the electoral process. But I don't understand is why and more while you're not this year and what I have seen. Is that in the previous states. In fact we did very well with working class people. This is the first one I'm hearing about that. But at the end of the day I have not the slightest out in the world that our campaign is the campaign that speaks the working class. People who have long been ignored with establishment has turned their backs on them. And if you look at the numbers Medicare for all is extremely popular with working class. People who cannot afford to pay in some cases twelve fifteen thousand dollars a year for the healthcare that they currently have so. I have zero doubt that our agenda which calls for raising the minimum wage to fifteen bucks demanding that the wealthy and the powerful stop paying their fair share of taxes dealing with climate change through a green new deal in creating up to twenty million jobs. That is the agenda that will win the election of the trump and the argument is that the agenda will drive the turnout overall. You've talked about needing the biggest voter turnout that America has ever seen and that you needed in those specific swabs the electorate that are underrepresented. That don't feel politics. Works for them. If the agenda is working to spike turn out in those groups to bring it up overall and I will tell you. The data says that. It's not right now in two thousand twenty data in the state. The early three states that you won the turnout was either. It was either flat or it was statistically significant in terms of its Nevada. One hundred twenty percent increase. Voter turnout New Hampshire the largest voter turnout in the history. I always flat. I was flat New Hampshire. When you compare it with two thousand and eight you look at population. Two thousand eight was when Obama ran his campaign. Yes all right. Well that's fine well bomber ran and exceptional campaign but in the Vata turnout was twenty percent higher. Shot Lodges Voter Turnout in. Its history was slow in terms of. Do you think that you should be able to match two thousand eight voter turnout numbers? I would hope so and I hope that in the general election I think the fact that here's the point about the general election number one. I believe I know that every Democratic candidate will support the widow. Those who have left the race. I will support Biden Biden will support me. We will bring together ninety nine percent of all Democratic voters. That's not the question they've got to come in. Because trump is the most dangerous president in modern history doesn't understand the constitution doesn't care for the rule of law is a racist and sexist et CETERA. We will get them so the challenges. How do you expand the vase? And if anybody thinks you could do it through the same old same old type of politics I would respectfully disagree your energy. You're GONNA need excitement and I think that is the campaign that we have. And by the way I do not accept that Medicare Medicare for all polled very well. Yesterday among Democratic voters demanding the wealthy and the powerful stop paying their fair share of taxes is extremely popular with the concept of a wealth tax that Elizabeth Warren and I have talked about is a very popular concept so I believe that not only. Are the ideas that I am talking about? Ideas that are long overdue ideas that exists in many cases in every other country. You're talking about Medicare for all you know we all right now. Fifty miles from the Canadian border go up to Canada. Everybody there has health care is a human right. The quality is good. They're spending less that fifty percent of what we're spending. Why why are you saying? And it speaks to the power of the drug companies the insurance companies who dominate because on and healthcare they make one hundred billion a prophet eighty seven million. People uninsured underinsured. I don't think it's a radical idea Rachel. I don't think making public colleges and universities as radical idea it exists in Germany existing countries and Scandinavia. All over the world and then you get the climate change. Is it radical to say that we should try to save the planet and tell the fossil fuel industry can't destroyed the planet? I don't think it's a radical idea so I reject problems that we have to use an extremist. There's nothing we are fighting for. That is extreme would exist all over this country it is what the American people want and are sanders. Have a lot more to ask you about including some news about corona virus a very surprising new proposal from the trump administration related to corona virus. That has a little touch on the Medicare for all right. Let's talk about that when we come back we're with Senator Bernie Sanders Vermont here in Burlington..

"The the threat was that that would be cancelled. That pence wouldn't come unless they met the Biden investigation demand. We played this portion of the interview last night. But here's a little squib from it to refresh your memory in the conversation. I told him that if he doesn't the amount was the key at that time because of the inauguration that that pence would not show up nobody would show to operation unless he announced an investigation into Joe Biden No. US officials particularly vice president. Mike Pence would not come to corrosive Mike Pence that conversation as Mr Parnell describes it He says that was in May of last year may twelfth specifically a meeting he says with a top hop aid to the incoming president elect in Ukraine. Mr Zelinski top adviser. He says that demand that he made that they need to announce the Biden investigation was rebuffed. The Ukrainians Indians did not agree to announce a Biden investigation. Despite the threat Mr Parnell was making their on behalf of the White House and when they rebuffed his demand and they did not provide abide that announcement of the investigation. In fact the following day. The White House made good on their threat and vice president. Mike Pence did cancel his planned trip to this Alinsky the inauguration that's as far as we got in the interview with Mr Parnasse as of last night but the way it went down thereafter. Is that after vice. President pence is cancelled his trip to the inauguration within a few days the US government decided they would send another senior official in his place. So let's pick up the story there. That's when we flew to Paris and Paris whomever for and we were comparison rudy basically. That's when I found out that the Perry was to the these decided to set Perry. They're Senator Secretary Rick Perry Creek. It's did you you learn from Mr Giuliani correct. Was Mr Perry to your knowledge. Aware of what you and Mr Giuliani. We're trying onto do in Ukraine in terms of getting these investigations announced. I don't know to what extent he know about me because I don't know what he was a little bit definitely he know about Really because He who's told he called Rudy on his way there to ask them what to discuss and Rudy told him that the made to make sure to give him the message. Mr Giuliani told secretary. Perry what you need to convey to the Ukrainian government is that they need to announce an investigation into job. I do you know if part of the message that Mr Giuliani conveyed. The secretary it was also that Ukraine would lose their military aid. They'd lose their. US aid if they didn't announce those investigations. I don't recall having specific conversation about about that. It was more of just Telling him what he needs to do to announce it. I don't know what other conversation had prior or after but I know that there was another conversation. Perry called after the inauguration telling him that he spoke to Skins Perry he says I spoke with the landscape and got him to agree. I got him to agree to announce the investigation announced but they didn't announce that see this is the whole key. They were constantly every time somebody would do skeet the ovary and then they will walk it back so they found something of a corruption that he's going to have corruption but that Giuliani blue lit on that saying. That's not what we discussed that wasn't supposed to be corruption. Invested announcement has to be about Joe Biden. The by the reason he said the name by needs to be spoken with this always they did not want them to announce corruption investigations or anticorruption efforts efforts. That was not it. It had to be about Biden. They had to say Biden left parties. Alleging that former energy secretary Rick Perry sorry who we know from impeachment. Hearing testimony was tasked by the White House is one of three officials along with Kurt. Volker and Gordon Sunlen who are taking the lead for the trump White House on Ukraine policy policy. The three Amigos according to Love Parnassus Secretary of Energy Rick. Perry was directed by Rudy Giuliani to deliver the message to the Ukrainian government meant that they needed to announce investigations into Joe Biden. He says Mr Kearney's says that Mr Perry phoned Mr Giuliani when he contacted Mr Giuliani and said that he had been in touch with the Ukrainian president that he had conveyed the message and not in fact the Ukrainian government had agreed to make about announcement now Secretary of Energy Rick. Perry has denied playing any role in this scheme but he did crash out of the trump cabinet just as the scandal started to come to the surface. It was October sixteenth. When The Wall Street Journal reported that in fact Secretary Perry did call Rudy Giuliani to talk about Ukraine? He did so at the direction of president trump the following day. October Seventeenth Rick. Perry tendered his resignation. The President as energy secretary the day after that October Eighteenth Secretary Perry announced that he would not comply with a subpoena in the impeachment investigation. Gatien whether he would comply now with a subpoenaed to testify to the Senate trial of the president that remains to be seen. We'll be right back. DOC With Martin. I know that there was another conversation. The recalled after the inauguration telling him that he spoke to them skins the. Let's face it. Most.

The the threat was that that would be cancelled. That pence wouldn't come unless they met the Biden investigation demand. We played this portion of the interview last night. But here's a little squib from it to refresh your memory in the conversation. I told him that if he doesn't the amount was the key at that time because of the inauguration that that pence would not show up nobody would show to operation unless he announced an investigation into Joe Biden No. US officials particularly vice president. Mike Pence would not come to corrosive Mike Pence that conversation as Mr Parnell describes it He says that was in May of last year may twelfth specifically a meeting he says with a top hop aid to the incoming president elect in Ukraine. Mr Zelinski top adviser. He says that demand that he made that they need to announce the Biden investigation was rebuffed. The Ukrainians Indians did not agree to announce a Biden investigation. Despite the threat Mr Parnell was making their on behalf of the White House and when they rebuffed his demand and they did not provide abide that announcement of the investigation. In fact the following day. The White House made good on their threat and vice president. Mike Pence did cancel his planned trip to this Alinsky the inauguration that's as far as we got in the interview with Mr Parnasse as of last night but the way it went down thereafter. Is that after vice. President pence is cancelled his trip to the inauguration within a few days the US government decided they would send another senior official in his place. So let's pick up the story there. That's when we flew to Paris and Paris whomever for and we were comparison rudy basically. That's when I found out that the Perry was to the these decided to set Perry. They're Senator Secretary Rick Perry Creek. It's did you you learn from Mr Giuliani correct. Was Mr Perry to your knowledge. Aware of what you and Mr Giuliani. We're trying onto do in Ukraine in terms of getting these investigations announced. I don't know to what extent he know about me because I don't know what he was a little bit definitely he know about Really because He who's told he called Rudy on his way there to ask them what to discuss and Rudy told him that the made to make sure to give him the message. Mr Giuliani told secretary. Perry what you need to convey to the Ukrainian government is that they need to announce an investigation into job. I do you know if part of the message that Mr Giuliani conveyed. The secretary it was also that Ukraine would lose their military aid. They'd lose their. US aid if they didn't announce those investigations. I don't recall having specific conversation about about that. It was more of just Telling him what he needs to do to announce it. I don't know what other conversation had prior or after but I know that there was another conversation. Perry called after the inauguration telling him that he spoke to Skins Perry he says I spoke with the landscape and got him to agree. I got him to agree to announce the investigation announced but they didn't announce that see this is the whole key. They were constantly every time somebody would do skeet the ovary and then they will walk it back so they found something of a corruption that he's going to have corruption but that Giuliani blue lit on that saying. That's not what we discussed that wasn't supposed to be corruption. Invested announcement has to be about Joe Biden. The by the reason he said the name by needs to be spoken with this always they did not want them to announce corruption investigations or anticorruption efforts efforts. That was not it. It had to be about Biden. They had to say Biden left parties. Alleging that former energy secretary Rick Perry sorry who we know from impeachment. Hearing testimony was tasked by the White House is one of three officials along with Kurt. Volker and Gordon Sunlen who are taking the lead for the trump White House on Ukraine policy policy. The three Amigos according to Love Parnassus Secretary of Energy Rick. Perry was directed by Rudy Giuliani to deliver the message to the Ukrainian government meant that they needed to announce investigations into Joe Biden. He says Mr Kearney's says that Mr Perry phoned Mr Giuliani when he contacted Mr Giuliani and said that he had been in touch with the Ukrainian president that he had conveyed the message and not in fact the Ukrainian government had agreed to make about announcement now Secretary of Energy Rick. Perry has denied playing any role in this scheme but he did crash out of the trump cabinet just as the scandal started to come to the surface. It was October sixteenth. When The Wall Street Journal reported that in fact Secretary Perry did call Rudy Giuliani to talk about Ukraine? He did so at the direction of president trump the following day. October Seventeenth Rick. Perry tendered his resignation. The President as energy secretary the day after that October Eighteenth Secretary Perry announced that he would not comply with a subpoena in the impeachment investigation. Gatien whether he would comply now with a subpoenaed to testify to the Senate trial of the president that remains to be seen. We'll be right back. DOC With Martin. I know that there was another conversation. The recalled after the inauguration telling him that he spoke to them skins the. Let's face it. Most.

"The show weeknights at nine eastern on. MSNBC tonight we will present part two of my interview with left Parnis. Now as I said before the first part of the interview last night and I want to reiterate now Mr Partners is under federal indictment. He was one of four defendants charged in early October. With multiple felonies related to an alleged scheme to funnel four and otherwise illegal donations to various Republican publican candidates and campaigns including more than three hundred thousand dollars in allegedly illegal donation to the main super pacs. Supporting the president's reelection. Mr Parnell is under indictment. He says he would like to cooperate with the impeachment investigators. He says he would also like to cooperate. Operate with the federal prosecutors who have charged him in the southern district of New York but he is right now out on bond awaiting trial and I will just mention at the outset that I am cognizant of the fact that we are presenting the second part of this interview tonight rather than just diving right right into some of the other momentous and historic news of today including the start today of the Senate trial of President Trump today marks only the third third time in US history that an American president has faced an impeachment trial in the Senate and it was a solemn beginning today the administering of the oath to the chief the justice of the Supreme Court the administering the oath to all senators all of the senators individually signing their names to the oath one by one in alphabetical order. Solemn thing it's a sobering thing this is a big deal and it is worse worth you know. Massive headlines is that it's getting all over the country it is absolutely worth marking this day in history. It is also worth noting that the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office today today issued a ruling that it was illegal for president trump to withhold aid to Ukraine as part of this scheme that what he did there was against the law all for that to be arriving today that ruling from the Government Accountability Office on the day that the Senate impeachment trial starts and this is all a big deal but it's also becoming clear that what happens next in the impeachment of president trump in this senate trial may depend in part on the additional evidence and witnesses who are still coming forward as the Ukraine scheme is coming more fully to light and so onward. Here's part two all right. One of the main questions. A lot of different people have asked I myself. uh-huh have have asked and have wondered main question asked about Mr Parnassus decision to give this first. Public interview is why why he would speak out publicly while he's out on bond awaiting trial right. That is atypical behavior to say. The least for a federal criminal defendant particularly particularly one who has a sentient lawyer. I mean the common wisdom is that public remarks and remarks to the media could really only disadvantage a defendant in his or her dealings with federal prosecutors. Right if you speak out publicly if you speak to the media it's GonNa hurt your criminal case that is the common wisdom for all federal defendants and all kinds of criminal mental trials. So why Mr Parnasse doing well. In this case Mr says that he has a significant in fear of the Justice Department and specifically he has significant fear of attorney. General William Bar for him. That is not reason to be quiet. That is part of the reason why he's making his case now to the public. My understanding spending a longtime with Mr Parnasse. Doing this interview view is that he believes he's safer putting this stuff out in the public sphere. Then he is keeping his mouth shut while the Justice Department knows what he was involved in and they know what he knows and they have his fate in their hands. My only objective is there. Get the truth out. Because I'd never thought I did. I was doing anything wrong. I still you know I. I regret certain things that I did. Because like you know hurting passenger and you know 'cause that was not something uptick but it was part of. It's like when you're in a war. You think like casualties and stuff like that. It's it's it's bad to say but it was it was I keep saying it was like you know being being in the call I mean and when they say organized Kinda I don't think trump was like org. I think he's like a cult leader the braid now the scary part. And that's what I keep mentioning and people don't understand Stand there's there's a lot of Republicans that would go against him. The only reason if you take a look and you know very well because you've been following the difference between white trump is so a powerful now and he wasn't as powerful and sixteen and seventeen. He became the powerful when he got William Bar. People are scared and my scare. Yes because I think more scared of our Justice Department than of these criminals right now because the scariest part is getting locked than some room and get treated as an animal. When did nothing wrong or or when you're not you know and that's the tool? They're using I mean I mean just because they're trying to scare into not talking and doing what God's help with my my moyer next to me that I know we'll go back for me no matter what would the truth and I'm taking the chance. My wife is scared my kids in there. He says they're trying to scare me into not talking. King Mr Par is referencing. Something specific. Actually that I asked him about in more detail and different part of the interview that I'm GonNa show you just a moment But what Mr describes there as a sort of what he says is is a cultish environment him saying getting out of that cultish environment around the president resident now makes him regret some of his actions that thing that he saying about it being like a cult that he regrets his behavior there that applies as well to the central claim at the heart of the impeachment scandal. which was this concerted effort? That Mister Peres was involved in to accuse former vice president Joe Biden of wrongdoing doing and to get Ukraine to announce investigations of Vice President Biden in terms of the information. The allegations against Vice President Biden. Mr Shokhin mix allegations against Mr Biden. Mr Lukashenko also makes allegations against Mr Biden. Do you believe that those allegations were true. When we were dealing with? When I was in the middle of the thick of things I think I was kind of in? I keep saying it's like a cultish environment of being around president trump because like I've been in DC for two years. I've never left the trump hotel type of situation so I truly believed seeing in different information that was handed to us at that time. That Joe Biden was doing something illegal Not so much hunter Biden but more Joe Biden but after are analyzing all the evidence and sitting back and release. What's a call understanding what's going on? I don't think I don't think vice-president buying anything wrong. I think he he was protecting our country and getting rid of probably a crooked. The Attorney General and people use this to their advantage. A lot of rich people in Ukraine have their agenda and they use US here for their own political stuff so I think this is was a big one in terms of material that was handed over to intelligence on March Twenty Second Mr Lutsenko texts shoe in Russia and and there's a translation Asian that's provided by the committee. Says it's just that if you don't make a decision about Madam you are bringing into question all my allegations including about be. So when he says Madam is he talking about Besser investor group and when he says all allegations including about be about reach Mumbai Buy Yes okay. And it's very small or Biden. I guess it could be either. It was always buy them. Barista was just I mean nobody cares about Berea. S'mores Jeff Ski. It was The concern was biting them. Hunter by in that text message to you is Mr Sankoh saying in effect. Listen if you want me to make these despite allegations you're going to have to get rid of this ambassador. Absolutely was he threatening that. If you didn't get rid of the ambassador. He might withdraw his allegations. He actually drew. He withdrew within several times. He wanted ambassador IANOVICH ousted for his own career reasons. He had clashed with her in her anticorruption efforts. That head butted up against it's ten. Let's Cinco and Shokhin both had an interest in getting rid of US ambassador. Maria von Vich. And it's funny because they both don't like each other the Sean Can Hayslett go. And even though I used to be his underling but They say listen. It's it's a different environment over there in. Its unless you live unless you do business there unless you on the visit there and understand that Bribery and it's just a way of life. I mean regular people at the store do it. They'll bribe the butcher together. Better meet piece of meat and it's normal or get better seats at the concert. So it's like away of life over there so the way the structures up and that's why everybody's hoping Zilenski changes it but I don't know how much he could change with one. Says like there's already embedded Bennett. This was Where once you become in America? It's like you become a politician to serve your country not to make money because you can make money in Ukraine. It's the opposite view. Some of these people pay millions of dollars to get a seat as a politician so once they get there. So it's all about the money and it's all about about the power left Parnis a key fixer and figure in the effort to fit up Vice President Joe Biden with accusations of wrongdoing in Ukraine to force the government to announce investigations into Mr Biden to force out to the US ambassador. Marie Ivanovich who was in the way of that effort. Mr Mr Parnasse now apologizing to that. US Ambassador Ambassador Yvonna Vich we dot last night and as I just showed you Mr Parnasse also says he now now does not believe that Vice President Biden did anything wrong in Ukraine and that Vice Presidents Vice President Biden's actions there which Mr Parnasse helped try to turn into do a scandal in his words. Now he says Mr Biden's actions were taken to protect our country and get rid of a crooked attorney. General by confirming firming the nature of his own communications with that official he refers to as a crooked attorney general. Mr Partners also makes clear that the removal of ambassador avant was a demand from the key. Accusers that he and Mr Giuliani and the president and others have been using to make this this false case against Biden the accusers including boatload Cinco Shokhin Wanted Ivanovich Gone Looks Sankoh explicitly demanded to pardon us that the ambassador be removed or his allegations against Biden might be a risk shokhin and Lutsenko wanted Ambassador Ivanovich removed and left parties telling because they were corrupt and she was a force against corruption in Ukraine. And they wanted her out of their way to think about the collateral damage that was caused not only in our own country but around the world and in Ukraine by this scheme to aid the president's reelection effort McAfee pretty clear sense sense of what that might be in Ukraine when it comes to anti-corruption president trump alleged personal role in trying to remove ambassador. IANOVICH before she was ultimately recalled old. We're going to have more on that coming up this hour as well but we started four we get to that. There's there's one other piece of this that I want to foreground here. That isn't specifically weekly about President Trump. It's about another senior. Member of the trump administration who love says stepped in to play a role in the Ukraine scheme at a very key moment the new president of Ukraine elected on this anti-corruption platform right engaged in ongoing war with Russia he's inaugurated in May as the new leader of Ukraine. Heat somewhat desperately needs a show of support strong show of support from the United States government. That's key to the US. Ah the Ukraine in terms of its fight with Russia among other things on the eve of Zelenskaja's inauguration Mr Parthenis told me and the portion of the interview. We played yesterday okay that he was directed by Rudy Giuliani with spoken to president trump about it. He was directed to really turn up the pressure on Ukraine to demand to the Ukrainian government. That's unless they announced Abidin investigation the Ukrainian government would lose not only all US military aid lose all the US aid and vice. President Pence would not come to the inauguration of the new president. Vice President Pence has plans to attend the inauguration. At that point were in full swing..

"Point of personal privilege coach. One of the weird things for me over the past few months. Is that right at the time. The House announced impeachment proceedings against President. Trump I right right then. That week was publishing a book called Blowout About the oil and gas industry in the book I used the story that I thought was an interesting sidebar story about a natural gas tycoon named Dimitri for Tash. I used him in my book as the vehicle to tell one story of how how. Russia was deliberately corrupting countries like Ukraine. That they wanted to keep in their orbit and they were using energy to do so and then as the book was coming out none other than Dimitri Tash was revealed to be one of the forces at work in this corruption scheme in Ukraine to try to smear vice president Joe Biden and and fire the US ambassador and withhold US aid to that country and hurt them in their fight against Russia. And the whole thing it was just it was uncanny was totally unintentional. On my part it was like a little bit of like Academic News World Car-crash but now today the Dmitri for Tash factor here has at at least become a little less mysterious Dmitri for tash like left Parnasse. The man who I interviewed today is under Federal Indictment Mr for Tasha's Casey's in under indictment on multiple serious felony corruption charges. He's fighting extradition to the United States is currently under house arrest in Vienna federal prosecutors in the for Tash case have called called him an upper echelon associate of Russian organized crime. The reason I say this got a little less mysterious. Today's that in my interview with love Parnasse this afternoon in New York City. He's spelled out. Basically what this oligarch Dmitry for Tash was doing in the middle of this impeachment scandal with Rudy Giuliani and the Fox. News Friendly Attorneys Victoria tensing and JOE DIGENOVA and how it alternately brings us to the desk of the Attorney General of the United States William Bar so at some point we had a meeting at our in their bealty office on the second floor and and at the trump hotel and at that meeting with Rudy and Victoria Jo. John brought up saying that he had some You've incredible information from the camp which later we found out there was I. Think Lenny Davis gave it to him but it was Basically what A show that Andrew Weisman was doing some legal stuff and offering some deal and acted blow up the smaller invasive. Investigation up the Kazoo you. Can I stop you there for a second. So the the allegation is you understood. It was that Andrew Weisman one of the prosecutors working on the team had made an had had the interaction with Dmitry for Tasha's under indictment by the Justice Department. He's fighting extradition here and that interaction. Mr Solomon is saying would be something scandalous that would discredit. The Mall are investigating so we were test. Basically with tried to establish relationship and specifically to get information to try to discredit them all Arna station absolutely. Yeah and Basically we went to. I was given certain documents by Josh. Solomon that would validate to Dimitri fear that I was in the loop and I knew what was going on because Mr Fierce gentleman. That just doesn't see anybody and that's you know a possible to even get to meet with them for us to be able to receive information from us. We had to promise fear to something. So for fear Tisch it was basically totaling that we knew his case was is worthless here and that he's being prosecuted for no reason. That's a that that basically it could get taking in care of the offers. Mr Fix this prosecution. If you've you're you're extradition case correct. Yes so that was basically the situation. We shouldn't At that point so the exchange with mister fear Tash was going to be. You provide us information that will be detrimental to public perception of the investigation And we in turn will get your case dropped at DOJ. So you won't get extradited to the United States anymore Mr Digenova and MS tensing saying we're going to become his lawyers to effectuation this trait correct and you were supposed to broker this correct. And what's this one hundred thousand dollars a month That was a expenses for them. Because you were supposed to negotiate a correct interaction tip that mine is not in there. That was they. Were getting a million dollars. Plus one hundred thousand dollars a month on expenses on mine was two hundred thousand. And what is this. What's that next line in the.

"Never go to the post office again. There were notes that were released to the Intelligence Committee that we're now released publicly And I want to. If you don't mind ask you about some of these. Were these notes that you took show until you hear. Obviously there on ritz-carlton Vienna had. This is your handwriting gifts for these notes from a meeting at which other people were present or were these your notes taken from a a conversation phone conversation that you're having with somebody else. This phone conversation musician having with Mr Giuliani and basically discussing certain things that because after that had a conversation with somebody this Alinsky team you guys making milk for myself. What was important to get and you were in Vienna at the time so this I know gets alinsky to announce that the the Biden case will be investigated? That's Mr Giuliani tasking. You that you should get that commitment from Solanki those always the main objective correct. That was always the main objective. Get them to announce they were investigating. Joe Biden it's love speaking with me today in New York City. One of the many dark hearts of this impeachment scandal is the virulent and scurrilous and ultimately successful effort to get the US ambassador to Ukraine fired. Ambassador Awesome Maria. Vich left. Parnes told me today a lot about that effort including at one point apologizing for and expressing regret but also made crystal clear why Ivanovich Donovan was targeted. The way she was. Do you believe that part of the motivation to get rid of Ambassador to get her out of post was because she was in the way of this effort to get the government of Ukraine to announce investigations of Joe Biden. That was the only embassador ianovich was in fact targeted by love partisan Rudy Giuliani and president trump and others involved in this effort to get her out of post. Get her out of the way of a bogus. Joe Biden investigation effort. Well our public understanding of that campaign which was conducted allegedly for that purpose Our public understanding of that campaign against her took a very dark turn last night when information. That left-arm turned over to impeachment. Investigators revealed menacing text messages from a Republican congressional candidate named Robert Hyde. Who appeared in these texts to be reporting in to love? Parnis about surveillance of ambassador. Vich asking love if he wanted her out and purporting to have a contact inside her security team. Who could facilitate such thing? I asked left Parnasse about those menacing and text messages today. He told me that he did not take Robert. Hyde seriously. Either in general or in relation to those messages he agreed that the messages were disturbing. But says he never believed Mr Hyde's assertions about this purported surveillance norte believe that ambassador Ianovich was in actual danger much. Who is Robert Hide? He's he's he's unique. He's just he's I don't even know how not explain them. He's you can say whatever you can bleep you if you need the. He's a weird character. He's he's a weird individual. You met him where I met. Intimate Trump told yes trump pluto. He was a regular at the bar. So we now have your text messages with Mr Hyde. That not get into some very dark territory when it comes down. Why did at least from the string of text messages that we've seen it seems that it sort of starts at least what what we've got? Is You texting him. What appears to be Anti Ivanovich information to work? Why are you sending a Mexican Tex? They're not go to the beginning of our TEX. This was just the what's up stuff which was very little but rubber hide was like I don't WanNa say a hang hang around because he did know Like all these He didn't know the president and he didn't know Rudy Giuliani. But he did know like McCarthy he know Roger Stone he knew all these because because it was like a breeding ground that the trump hotel so every event would be there so everybody would hang out there afterwards. Everybody all the meetings would be there. So it's basically you would see the same people woah. Every day or the same congressman that supported the president would be there and nobody else so he was a fixture on site he was always there and he was always draw struck up enough of a relationship check with them to be texting with him. It was more eager. Had more relationship with them. He was He he just couldn't speak with the or so he would Texas because they were like at. Ah Usually at after we were done for the night you know he. The bar scene was happening and I don't drink but so they would hang out and have a drink at the bar so let me ask. I mean the the the text message that he sends to you about ambassador. IANOVICH are disturbing. What is the context of these text? Exchanges he appears to be giving you very specific information about the ambassadors movements about her location about her security situation call so the B word over over and over again. It's very hostile to her and seems to be monitoring her whereabouts. What why did those exchanges happen? What was he trying to tell you? I don't believe he was either drunk or he's was trying to make himself bigger than there was so I didn't take it seriously and I was trying to if you see. I didn't even respond to most of the time. And if I did it was like something. Lowell or okay. Oh great or something like that. Just because I wouldn't respond for a long time I am and then I didn't want him to get rowdy if I saw him next time and say well. Why didn't you type response? I would just amuse him until eventually as you can see them off because what happened is when he sent me. Those I got disturbed served. I was like Whoa. This is crazy. 'cause this guy off the wall so I called up I think it was Joey hearn. Who was My contact that the SUPERPAC America first that knew of him also because he all the all the donors and I asked my because as I said what is this guy off the reason. He told me that. Stay away from him because because he's just got into something with. I think Greg Pence Mike Pence his brother and Thinking that the secret services after him and somebody wants to kill illumine the. I don't know exactly what happened. But that was my once once. He started texting me that relationship the texts where he was supposedly reporting on the whereabouts went on for a week. It wasn't like one drunk. Night correspondent for seven days couldn't have been drunk the whole time. She's struck the whole time. He wakes up and he starts at six. I mean I've never seen a mud drum so you thought that this was ham making it up. You didn't believe he actually had the ambassador under surveillance. I asked Mr Parnell several times over the course of our interview. If those text messages from Robert Hyde indicated the real threat to ambassador IANOVICH. I asked him about it as many different angles. I could come up with. I was insistent and asking. He was adamant in his response. So it's clear that you didn't take Mr Hyde seriously. In terms of the factual claims that it was making. But are you clear clear on whether or not there was ever an actual physical threat or a threat of personal intimidation against ambassador vantage over for my side or anybody. I know you didn't worry that she was actually in physical danger number number. Because you didn't believe Mr Hyde believe we contacted attorneys Ernie's from Basseterre Yvonna vich tonight to to let them know about these statements from Mr Parnis about this possible threat to their client They are not commenting tonight. But we've got more ahead including what ends up being a very difficult conversation about the attorney general of the United States. William Bar it. Hey It's Chris Hayes. Sometimes it's good to just take a step back from the day to day onslaught of news and take our broader. Look at the issues. That's what I'm doing each week.

"Who the target was was extremely small and it was a matter of hours that people knew that this was happening in in that very small group? So that's it's the exact question of trying to get an answer to tonight. Rachel is exactly what. What were they doing in advance in hell far in advance were they was the US military planning for this and what the potential blowback can be and how they prepare in advance for it? General Milley the chairman of the Joint Chiefs today specifically said that they have he has the forces they're are necessary to protect US assets but that was hours before this happened. The entire situation has changed since Rachel intern coordinator in terms of what happens next next year. Obviously we've been talking tonight about all of these experts in the field national security experts talking about how the Ron may take their time and their response and that they may respond in a way that it is quite irregular rather than just the regular sort of asymmetric warfare. They they mount all over the world that they may pursue things like assassinations. They may try I to extend their reach quite far around the globe in terms of how they go after specific American targets that they think merit a proportion they think would merit a proportionate response is at the Pentagon that response to that is that US intelligence that also response to those kinds of threats. Do we know if any of that's being scaled up it's going to be all of the all of the above because we also the with Iran we don't know if they're going to respond necessarily to use installations to military bases to diplomatic posts or will they respond to in in a way going after commercial shipping as we've seen them do over the summer the potentials also you know they could go in a cyber realm. The potential sensual is is is so wide and broad at this point that I think the the US government. I can imagine at this point all over the US government they are looking at the potentials and how they can can. They can shore up any kind of defenses all over for any potential Ronnie and Response Certainly Kobe. Pentagon correspondent for NBC News. Thank you very much appreciated. Thanks all right.

"Us. Just got a response from house speaker. Nancy Pelosi to this action shen tonight by the trump administration the US Department of Defense saying that it was a US military strike that killed the leader of the coulds force in Iraq. Customs Sumani Pelosi statement not only response to that announcement from the trump administration. It also answers a key question that a lot of us have been trying to report on tonight right which is a question of whether or not the. US Congress was notified ahead of this strike given its import cases like this. You might or might not expect the entire Congress to know that something like this was going to happen in advance but you would into normal circumstances. Expect the so-called gang avait to be notified. That's the top leadership of the House and the Senate and the intelligence committees. You'd expect notification there. Nancy Pelosi making clear in the statement. Tonight that hasn't happened. Quote American leaders highest priority is to protect American lives and interests but we cannot put the lives of American servicemembers diplomats and others further at risk by engaging and provocative and disproportionate. Actions Tonight's airstrike. Risks Provoking further dangerous escalation of violence. America in the world cannot afford to have tensions escalate. To the the point of no return the administration has conducted tonight strikes in Iraq targeting high level Romanian military officials and killing Iranian coulds force commander Customs Sulejmani without an authorization for use of military force against Iran further. This action was taken without the consultation of Congress that answering a question that many of us had tonight. Pelosi concludes quote the full. Congress must be immediately briefed on this serious situation and on the next steps under consideration by the administration including the significant thicken esscalation of the deployment of additional troops to the region again after there were demonstrations and an attack and some fire set at the. US Embassy complex in Baghdad earlier this week the US military announced that one hundred Marines one hundred additional marines would be sent to the Baghdad embassy complex to protect it and that seven hundred. I'm fifty troops. From the eighty second airborne would be sent to Kuwait to nearby Kuwait essentially to function as a rapid reaction force in case they were needed in in Iraq Speaker Pelosi noting that the administration made these strikes against Iranian military officials without authorization from Congress is a confirmation of something. The thing we figured was true her saying that Congress was not notified. Presumably means that includes the gang of Eight. which would include herself? That would be a departure from past practice. Joining us now is treated policy is the executive vice. President of the Quincy Institute for Responsible. Statecraft treat is a founder of the National Iranian American Council all. He's written several books on America's relationship with Iran. His latest is losing an enemy Obama Iran and the triumph of diplomacy Mr Parsley. Thank you so much for being with US tonight. I appreciate making time driving. Let me just ask you an open question about your reaction to this news tonight. I know you've been following this news. Says we have as it's come in. Well it's somewhat similar to some of your previous guests in the sense that it's really difficult not to see this. As an act of awards is really difficult not to see how this will escalate further. It's really difficult to see how the US government has any idea of of how it will be able to prevent that escalation. The Pentagon statement said. This was aimed at deterring further attacks but so was the previous US attack and the previous ones before that in each and every case we have seen that these measures actually have led to further escalation. Rather within the Esscalation I don't think the. US government expected that the attack on the Iraqi militia that killed fifty would lead to the attack on the embassy yet. It did and now we have this attack against disaster nation of what your previous guests said was the number two person in Iran. What escalation does the? US government expect it. Come from this. What preparation do they have? And what are they actually doing to be able to deescalate it to ensure that it doesn't lead to something as big as a full-scale scale war as it very well may do so. There's a lot of question marks as to whether the trump administration has thought through. It has nothing to do whether Soleil money he is a good guy or a bad guy or anything like that. It has to do what happens next. And that's the part. I'm most worried about that. I don't think the US government is truly ready for it if this was an active war if we should see ourselves as in a state of war as we heard from Brett mcgurk moments ago which you just referenced What do you think Americans should expect about what a war between Iran and the United States is like what will Iran consider among its range range of possibilities in terms of how to respond next what they will consider to be proportionate or whether they will in fact seek a disproportionate response as revenge judge? I think we'll sit earlier is probably quite correct that I don't think the Iranians are like GonNa Russia's I think they're going to be consulting with the Russians and the Chinese to try to gauge their reaction to what a response Iran may be considering. I think they will likely do something that will surprise us in the sense John Stott. I was part of those who are trying to figure out what the Iranians are going to do towards In reaction to the trump administration trying to push down their oil exports to zero zero. I did not expect that type of attack on Saudi facilities that have been attributed to Iran by the US government. So I think they may very very well surprise. But I think if this leads to a full-scale war I think the calculation on the Iranian side is going to be that their ability to be able to it. Come out of that. War is inflict as much damage as possible on the United States in a short period of time in order to break the American will and if you have vist Aarp which award is taking place did not get approval from Congress may end up not being particularly popular with the American public than that strategy may have some the prospect of success but it would mean that a lot of people are going to die on both sides and that's not something that has happened to the US. Since the Vietnam War. Because I I think we're talking about casualty levels much beyond we've seen in Iraq and Afghanistan you would see. US FORCES ABROAD FORCES IN IRAQ US forces in Afghanistan as the initial targets for those kinds of attacks or do you think that Iran's reach and their ambitions in that kind of a worst case scenario would extend geographically further even to the US is homeland. I've not seen any evidence that they have the capacity to do so but I'm not privy to the intelligence that would be able to assess as to whether they do or not art from the US side. But I do wonder if that would be a step to the Ranas would be cautious about because if they were to do anything on. US soil then. I think they would change. The nature of this conflict from one in which a lot of Americans would start seeing this as a defensive war and that's a completely different ballgame. I think that would be a step. That they probably recognize would backfire on them if they did but at the same time. I don't think they had the expectation that Sulejmani would would be assassinated i. I'm sure that they knew that he was a target. But I'm sure they also understood on numerous occasions. The probably did have the capacity to assassinate. SONATE him chose not to do so precisely because the US didn't want to escalate and they didn't expect that now. The trump administration actually did want escalate. Thanks Dr Treated the Executive Vice President of the Quincy Institute author of losing an Enemy Obama Iran and the triumph of diplomacy Dr Parsley. Thank you so much for being with US tonight. I really appreciate it. Thank you all right ahead. Some more new reporting on on what the US military is doing tonight now that they have confirmed this strike. Live report there when we come back. Stay with us since the news first broke tonight on Iraqi television of all places that Iran's uh-huh top military commander had been killed in Baghdad a household name in Iran the leader of Iran's militia and covert operations around the world. Since that news first broke tonight we have been counting on Cordy Kuby National Security Pentagon correspondent for NBC News for Leading Edge reporting as this continues to develop particularly now that the Defense Department has has put out a statement acknowledging responsibility for this strike. Courtney thanks for being with us. I know it's been a very very busy night. It has what's the latest in terms of the US military response. We've certainly heard the Defense Department statement claiming responsibility for this. Do we know anything else about how the military is potentially Ashley preparing for retaliation. So they're obviously shoring up their installations and locations all over the region but specifically in Baghdad. What they're doing right now is looking at the possible threat streams so what specific threats there are two? US military and diplomats to Americans in Iraq and in the region. And also. Don't don't forget there's a over six hundred Americans in Syria right now. It's a much smaller footprint than what the US had there not only several months ago. So they're looking at any potential Henschel vulnerabilities and how they could potentially shore them you mentioned earlier in the show that the US sent these roughly seven hundred soldiers from the eighty second airborne. These are the quick quick response to the Global Response Force soldiers to Kuwait to be there and ready. Should they need them. It wouldn't be surprising. If we see additional deployments to the region for for additional quick reaction and Response Forces. Should they be needed but right now in Baghdad. They're looking at what. The potential vulnerabilities are for us. Troops and diplomats Matt's in the country and trying to figure out how they can address them immediately and coordinate. Is there any sign that the US obviously this is a US military action and so the US military. We knew they were going to do it. Even if Congress didn't and the the other side didn't is there any indication that that the US military took steps to harden targets forgets to up our force protection levels or to pre position assets in advance of this strike anticipating that there would be a quick need to take care of US forces around the region in response to the killing. So that's actually some this exact question that I've been asking since we got all this confirmed tonight because it hasn't made sense to me why they sent the the battalion of the eighty second airborne to Kuwait in the first place after Benghazi you'll remember that the US military established what the Marines call a special a special purpose Marine Air Ground Task Force Special Purpose Mag Taff specifically for what the what we saw happening in Baghdad. where an embassy was this was under threat? It's called crisis response. And you know after Benghazi. They have these marines that are stationed throughout the region in in Europe mainly Finley. That are quick reaction if there is an embassy threat it made sense to send the MAG taff guys in the one hundred marines for the embassy. But why did they send the seven hundred hundred additional and I've been asking that question all over was it because they knew this was coming the US military the circle of people who knew that these strikes were coming against Gaza Solo on Lien..

"The Rachel Maddow show. We did not Mr. non MSNBC. Thanks to you at home for joining us this hour. It was September twelfth nineteen sixty two. It was a really really hot day that day and the president's speech was held in a big outdoor stadium where there was not a single inch of shade for anyone who was sitting there. Listening to him. And that whole event ended up being a benefit endurance test for the thousands of people who were in attendance, not only because of the unrelenting heat. But also because before the president eventually got up to give his speech all these other people went I the university president and a whole other cast of lesser dignitaries all gave up and they all gave fairly long remarks of their own while all these thousands of people wilted in the stadium under the noonday sun all before the president even started his remarks. But when the president did finally come up to the podium at the football stadium at Rice University in Houston, Texas that hot September day in thousand nine sixty two. He I think somewhat wisely sort of recognized the environment. He was in. He started off taking note of the setting. He was in the school the city the state. And then frankly, the weight of the matter that he was about to discuss. Ladies and gentlemen. I appreciate your president having made me an honorary visiting professor, and I will assure you that my first you will be very brief. I am delighted to be here. And I'm particularly delighted to be here on this. Occasion. We meet at a college noted for knowledge in city noted for progress in state noted for strength, and we stand in need of all three, oh, we meet in an hour of change and challenge and a decade of hope and in an age of both knowledge and ignorance that was somewhat somber start before that very quiet crowd. Of what would eventually become recognized as one of the triumphant or a cool moments in US presidential history. I mean that was the quiet somber start to the speech in which JFK went on to inspire. The nation to commit to move proverbial mountains to do whatever. Needed to be done for America to become the first nation on earth for Americans to lead humanity in putting a man on the moon. And that speech is is remembered for its pinnacle moments of inspiring, redder, the stirring words from JFK. But it's interesting when you go back to that speech now, what's really striking given the legend of that moment in history. Is that all the way up till the apex the memorable. Apex of that speech? JFK honestly was barely dragging that audience along this huge sweaty stadium. Full of heat struck Texans who had been sitting there for a long time before he ever got up there. They were really not all that into anything. He was saying for any of the rest of his speech. But the one indelible stands up from that speech, the one historical moment, we can all right now off the top of our heads recite from memory, right? That moment with the crowd roaring and him crescendo going into this great memorable moment about America. Putting a man on the moon. You know, when you go back and look at it. Turns out the way he got the crowd to roar in that moment was not because they seem particularly psyched about going to the moon before he got to that point in the speech. The thing they were all making noise about at the start of that apex moment in the speech was that he had just made a comedic football reference about why Rice University even bothered to play Texas in football, given what a mismatch that always was. There is no strife, no prejudice. No national conflict in out of space..
