Commissioner Bernard Kerik pleaded guilty to eight felony charges including tax fraud and lying to White House officials. Carrick was nominated by George W Bush to be the Secretary of Homeland Security before withdrawing that nomination just a week later. The judge gave a longer sentence than agreed to the plea deal saying quote. I think the damage caused by Mr Carrick is in some ways. Immeasurable trump also pardoned bond. Trader Michael Milkin. So guy considered to be the face of insider trading in the nineteen eighty S. Milton was originally charged with ninety eight. Federal counts including racketeering. He pleaded guilty to six felony charges of securities fraud conspiracy. He was sentenced to ten years in prison. He also paid six hundred million dollars in fines and restitution at sentencing. The judge said quote when a man of your power in the financial world repeatedly conspires to violate and violate securities and tax laws in order to achieve more power and wealth for himself and his wealthy clients.

This is the president who spent the last six months arguing. He so pose corruption. He had to make sure. Ukrainian president was to by withholding credit grudgingly approved military aid unless you launch fake investigation into the Biden's and route around Kremlin source conspiracy theory tourist findings but somehow this group of liars an extortionist and swindlers is the group of people. Trump felt deserve clemency. Maybe it's just a coincidence. That trump is pardoning these felons as the sentencing yet. Another one of his criminal pals looms earlier today. Trump tweeted about the judge in the trial of his longtime friend and advisor. Roger Stone suggesting stone deserved a new trial. Not long after the judge ruled stone. Sentencing hearing we'll go on that's planned on Thursday. Although she did say Roger. Stone's sentence will not begin until after she rules on his request for a new trial. Trump's interference with the stone cases. Troubled the Federal Judges Association so much that they called an emergency meeting tomorrow to address it and joining me now. For more on the president's pardoning spree. Today's Walter Dellinger. He was formerly formerly the acting. Solicitor General and also the head of the office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice under president. Bill Clinton Mr Dellinger. What do these pardons say to you as somebody who worked in in at high levels in justice in the United States? Well I think the show that we're really at the at the end of being a country that believes in equal justice under law there was no process to see how these crimes and these sentences compared with others who remain in prison. It's the president's own whim when a president acts by Wim and says he did of the Goya Vich. I wanted wife on television that that is an assault on the rule of law. But it goes much deeper than that. This is part of a three pronged assault on low as we know it. It involves threats of criminal prosecution of political opponents. Those investigate you. It involves promises that the president will intervene on behalf of those who commit crimes on his behalf and it. The third leg of this assault is his attack on judges and jurors in cases in which he's involved there is there's a banana republic aspect to it as you said that if you're friends with the president or on his TV show you get a pardon no matter what you've done and if you cross him in any way you might end up being prosecuted and we know that William Bar doesn't seem to be opposed to doing that but they're also does seem to be kind of a sort of Ross statement of power that Donald Trump is saying that if you commit these particular kinds of crimes that are against the Public. Trust that our financial in nature that are about corruption when he himself was impeached for corruption. It almost as sort of I don't know it almost feels like a message about that too about the fact that he's saying no no. I'm going to use of dive into corruption and revel in it. That's a good point Jordan. He treats he treats very high status people as if they're high status is a mitigation of their crops. When in fact it is an exacerbation that makes him so much worse. When you're a privileged person take for example. The fact that he has intervened on behalf of someone who was this got to be the national security adviser and lied about an investigation not just any investigation an investigation into a foreign military powers intervention. Our election. He intervened on behalf of someone who has been a prominent associated with President. Said is Roger Stone Who who committed five categories of lies and engaged in what the first department memo said was a relentless multi year attempt to again and obstruct justice in terms of an investigation into the corruption and the election and then finally the sympathy for someone. Who had the Honora being governor of one of our largest states? And who is thoroughly corrupt? And who sold a position in the United States Senate? Now that's he treats those because high status people as mitigation of their crops. And would it surprise you if the after to the things that Donald Trump does as well when it surprised if he's setting up there's been a lot of questions about whether he might try to part himself like if he's ever found to have committed some crime and that would certainly make himself the biggest part of the mall. I think he would undoubtedly attempt to pardon himself and everyone around him. He certainly let it be known that if a if he's re-elected or or even in the period after he was defeated he is GonNa take care of Of of everyone he knows including himself. I think the courts would reject hisself pardon but you know no presents ever tried that before so we can't be sure and the way in which he he seems to revel in the fact that he could take someone like sheriff. Joe Arpaio a law enforcement officer who is targeting Latinos for harassment and using the power of the police deliberately against a minority group and he pardoned him of criminal contempt of court that the way in which he plays with this. I think Dolly Elliptic who some times on this show referred to the `constitutionalisation of narcissism is what we face in this country. Yeah IT DONALD. Trump wants credit of also doing first step back kinds of criminal justice reform. He wants credit for that. But but do you sense in the pardons that he's doing especially today that the real message here is his own power right that he's essentially saying if you're powerful and you're my friend that is actually how you get a justice not by being somebody who was falsely accused of a crime or got too long of a sentence for having marijuana or something like that. That's why there's absolutely the absolute absence of any sense that the people pardoned held they compared with the culpability and the sentences of the tens and tens of thousands who remain in federal prison. The idea that he can act on on Mir welcome. I think something we've never seen the president before you know. Some people are going to raise the a Bill Clinton's pardon of financier and fugitive Bark Rich. And that was the worst thing. Bill Clinton did in eight years and an office is unjustified pardon but Donald Trump is taking it to a very different level where he's using the levers of the of the power of his office in order to corrupt law threatening opponents rewarding those who would commit crimes on his behalf going after judges and jurors in. I don't know where we go from here. I think we two thousand former prosecutors not just signed a letter but perhaps to think about blocking the willing to be arrested blocking the entrance of the Justice Department out. You have to use your imagination where we go from here Walter Dellinger. Thank you very much really appreciate your time and joining me now. For more. On the president's pardoning Spree Matthew Miller former chief spokesperson for the Department of Justice who's down MSNBC Justice analyst and Betsy Woodruff Swan Politics reporter at the daily beast and she's also an MSNBC contributor. So let's talk about sort of where where he could go from here and where and what it means and I'll start with where he could go from here. Betsy because is there any reporting on how much more of this because it does appear that there is a pattern? Somebody is either you know his friend or was on the apprentice goes on Fox News and pleads for his help he immediately responds to his friends and gives them a pardon. Who's who might be next on the list. I spent the afternoon talking to people who identify or describe themselves as allies of Roger Stone and they said that they saw the spate of clemencies that came down today as very comforting to them. Because they believe it's a signal. The President is sending that Roger. Stone may be next in line for this type of executive action. I thought your use of the phrase Banana Republic was really interesting because a federal judge. Us that exact same phrase in a transcript that was recently released from a closed door hearing regarding the investigation. That's now closed into Andrew McCabe and the judge literally said that the fact that trump was tweeting about McCabe so often the fact that he appeared to be interfering in that process created the appearance of a Banana Republic. So the thing to keep an eye on both the president of course granting clemency to people who he views as his political allies in part because he sees them on Fox News and the inverse of that which is the president encouraging DOJ to weaponize itself against people who he sees as his foes. And I'm glad also that Mister Diligent Joe Arpaio because they're also sort of symbolic arden's of people who are hurting the People Donald Trump's base wants to see hurt.

"Well, it means that he could really the bottom line that he could spend most of his remaining days in federal prison. That's headline. That's a headlining. They didn't prove lie. Number four. Nick Ackerman of Watergate prosecutor joins who I phone your view, Nick. I think there's two big things here. One is this goes to the very hard of Muller's investigation. It's the two conspiracies that were charged against the Russian intelligence operatives or you've got Manafort now lying about one of those intelligence operatives Constantine Clement. And what the judges found is that Meller that Manafort lied about the conspiracy relating to the conspiracy to break into the Democratic National Committee steal records in lie about the conspiracy relating with social media and the micro targeting of voters in the use of the voter will not information that he provided the community. But I think one of the other big pieces here is that more Manafort is going to get hammered with a huge sentence. And the question is is that gonna bring Manafort around to the point or he's going to have to bear all and cooperate to avoid. You're You're talking talking about. about the rest double bag live. I mean that was the thing that made him flip the first time, Nick, I mean, it's a breaking news story. But I think a lot of us would say, what do you mean? I mean. To cooperate never chewy. And let's be clear walk us through Tom winter was just explaining this Nick, this is not when we say life. We mean the rest of his life. This is not a capital crime. We're not talking about a quote, unquote, former life sentence, but man of his age with these type of federal crimes are we talking in your view? Do you agree with Mr. winters analysis? Nick that legally you're talking about the the number of years that could be for him an effective life sentence correctly at correct. And he has within a year of sentence e can move for a reduction in that sentence under the federal rules, if he cooperates so it's not over until it's over and a really heavy sentence..

"Can you hear me? Loud and clear your view of the significance of this. And then Tom's going to walk us through the three things. One on. Yeah. So I'm taking a look really quick look, obviously at the judge's ruling. It's not a slam dunk for Muller. But what he lost on almost as interesting as what he won on. So he lost basically on the concerns about obstruction of Justice, and he won on collusion, which means that the judges persuaded that Paul Manafort was intentionally making false statements about the heart of the investigation collusion. Interesting distinction there in one I think that a lot of people are going to focus in on. We were just discussing with the Congressman Tom winter. You're one of the people here who sends out the notes and people devour them walk us through this. Okay. So a couple of things one I think the key. And it is a bit of a split decision. If you will of this was a boxing match, the judge says here, look there's a payment that surrounds a super Pac that we don't have all the details to our because it's still a part of an ongoing. Investigation. Prosecutors say in they haven't fully detailed all the circumstances surrounding. But it does involve a pro-trump superpac in some sort of payment involving a law firm. That's the best that we have right now as far woods what this is about. But the judge says that Manafort lied to federal agents in the grand jury about something about that. The second thing is this has to do with the contacts and interactions and discussions with Constantine Kalinic. And she says that is far as. Manafort's descriptions to the FBI and the grand jury about that. Yes, he lied to. And then as far as the minimum discussions in guard regarding Trump administration officials and his reach outs communications with them that he lied about. That is well regarding the obstruction of Justice in in how that plays with Constantine Kalinic, which the judge says special counsel's office did not prove that Manafort had lied about that I think that has more to do with what Constantine Kalinic is charged with along with Paul Manafort. So it's this effort between the two to kind of say, hey that work that we were doing that was really for Ukraine. It wasn't Ukraine, and you should tell a couple of other people that this is Manafort was under a diamond they hit him with a superseding indictment. So I think just to follow up on what the former federal prosecutors said there, it's not specific to an overall obstruction of Justice investigation. That people are have been. Talking about Trump. It's very specific to the Constantine, right? This is point to where they say, basically where Muller didn't win was on. Whether they lied about quote clinics role in quote, the obstruction of Justice conspiracy. Right. And you're pinpointing that is a somewhat narrow I wanna be clear for viewers because there's so many angles on this. Right. And where you sit as they say in Washington where you stand and people care about it for different reasons. It's a split decision. With regard to Muller who wanted to win all five. I mean, prosecutors want to win everything, of course, it's not really a split decision. If you're Paul Manafort or his family, obscene, Glen eyrie bad for the rest of his life. Yeah. I'm really glad that you brought that up. I mean, right now, the judge essentially says, you know, he he did lie at several points and because of that and because some of the things zone defense counsel has said in this. The plea agreement is off in what that really means to what you were just speaking to as far as Paul Manafort, his family and his life going forward is is that any sort of guaranteed by the government that they would bring down his sentence. Lighten his sentence going forward. That's off the table. We're talking don't have to argue which means he could be facing up to how many years..

"Received the contact information for and spoke with a Russian national who claimed to be a trusted person in the Russian federation who could offer the campaign, political synergy and synergy on a government level the defendant Cohen recalled that this person repeatedly proposed a meeting between individual one that's Trump and the president of Russia. The person told code that such a meeting could have a phenomenal impact not only in a political, but in a business dimension as well referring to the Moscow project because there is no bigger warranty in any project, then the consent of the president of Russia. Cohen didn't follow up. But there you have the Trump campaign interacting with a Russian national claiming to have influences in Putin circle. Who wanted Trump to meet with Ladimir Putin, and who was promising to get the Russian government to clear the way for Trump Tower Moscow in exchange for political and business considerations synergy. There's also a footnote in which Cohen admits that he lied when he said he had never talked to Trump about trying to set up a meeting with Putin, quote, the defendant admitted that this account was false, and that he had in fact conferred with individual one about contacting the Russian government before reaching out to gauge Russia's interest in such a meeting, but I'm not done yet. There's one more thing Muller also released a heavily redacted document involving Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chair as you recall. Unlike Cohen Manafort, formally agreed to cooperate with the government, but Muller pulled out of that agreement and said. Metaphor had been lying to prosecutors. While feeding information to the Trump legal team that document says Manafort told multiple discernible lies about five major issues after agreeing to cooperate including quote, his context with administration officials now just to keep us. All orderly I'm going to get to the Manafort stuff in a bit. Let's begin tonight with what we learned in the Michael Cohen filings two different ones here to help us. Go through some of the incredible details, including what we learned about Trump and the Russians I'm joined by the guy always turn to for the stuff. NBC news investigative reporter, Tom winter and NBC Justice analyst Matt Miller who is a former chief spokesperson for the department of Justice, gentlemen. Thank you for being with me on a Friday night. Tom winter. Let's talk about this. What you follow this very closely you, and I've been together when everything to do with Russia and Cohen has come out. What did we learn tonight that we didn't know so specific to the rush aspect of this? I think one of the key things that we learned tonight was that there were contacts that occurred in November of two thousand fifteen involving Michael Cohen involving Russian national. So this appears to be an individual that. We haven't heard about before which is a bit of an interesting part of this investigation. The other thing is this isn't that? There were discussions that were careering that we've heard about in twenty sixteen this appears to me to back up the timeframe quite a bit here L to November of twenty fifteen. So that means that by the time, the president says at a press conference in July of twenty sixteen Russia, are you listening with respect to getting somebody's emails. They're already eight or nine months in here of knowing that Russia wants some sort of communication, they want some sort of quote, political synergy, I think it's important that that phrase, political synergy.

"This information will see the light of day given what Tom winter just said about essentially a kind of pause on the basic building of that case around Michael Cohen. It may see the light of day, and I know we've all observed that Michael Cohen entered into a non-cooperation agreement, but you know, Chris. Not at all unusual that just as prosecutors will return series of indictments and the second one is called a superseding indictment. We also not infrequently enter into superseding plea agreement. So you know, Michael Collins, I plea agreement as we've seen a non-cooperation agreement, but I suspect that you may see another plea agreement with Michael Cohen that broadens his sort of crimes or fences. And that may very well be a cooperation agreement. All right choice Vance, and Glenn Kirschner thanks to you both. Let's turn to congressman Denny hack a Washington, a member of the house intelligence committee. I'll start with you congressman on this. Are you confident that Michael Cohen told you the truth when he was before your committee? No, not at all. He was not an his candid phase when he came before. So I don't think I think he is now it would be instructive and fascinating having back. And I would like to think that we would be able to do that. At some point, the president gave an interview in which he said many things. One of the things he talked about was impeached. I think it's the first time I've heard him speculate about that. Eventuality I wanna play what he said and get reaction. Take a listen. If the Democrats take back power, do you believe they will try to impeach you. I guess it's a something like high crimes. I don't. I don't know how you can impeach somebody who's done a great job. I'll tell you what if I ever got a peach, I think the market would crash. I think everybody would be very poor because without this thinking you would see you would see numbers that you wouldn't believe in reverse. What do you think of that? Well, I'm going to take offense on vice president Pence behalf, Chris, he would ascend to the presidency and I have more confidence in him evidently than his own president does. That's well acclaimed congressman, thank you. There are way more Republicans talking about impeachment than there are Democrats. And the reason is they lack of policy agenda. So they want they want to have this conversation out there because I've yet to hear their plan for lowering prescription drug prices or protecting people pre existing conditions or increasing our investment and infrastructure or getting Americans a real wage increase, which non-salary employs are not getting. So they would rather talk about impeachment. Most of us believe that we ought to allow director Muller to conclude his work before that even becomes a serious. Conversation, but I'll tell you this press. I think the walls are closing in on President Trump and as of Tuesday, August twenty. First, I think we can officially market is the most corrupt administration in modern history. I think that's a matter of fact. I don't think that's a subjective evaluation or interpretation of the number of criminal indictments and convictions at the felony level. I actually think the president ought to start having a conversation with his God and his family and himself about resigning. Do you think that other people that think that way. In this country. Other people think that he ought to be. Millions tens of millions of that way. But is there anyone on Capitol Hill, not who's not a democrat and thinks that privately. So a year ago, April, I set on this network that I believe that there were people going to go to jail, and there were a lot of people that looked scans at me. They aren't anymore. And I actually, I made the statement on this network in April of this year that he ought to start having that conversation in the truth is if you compare where we were then with where we are now we're doing nothing but heading in that direction. So as of today, probably not as of two, three, four, six months from now? Yeah, I think there'll be a lot of people have in that conversation question, you sit on the house intelligence committee chair by Devin..

"It doesn't involve me the president says, and that has, of course been his refrain about all the crimes committed by his associates, but he cannot say that anymore about Michael Cohen was released today in a five hundred thousand dollar bond because the crimes Coen pleaded guilty to do involve the president who is identified in those court documents as individual one.

He joins me here tonight. What did you see in there? Well, it was a totally different experience at the courthouse today. Chris, the first couple of hearings because there was this arguments over several months about who should look at the evidence that was seized for Mike. Cohen in how should that process go? Go through and there was a tremendous amount of media attention. Stormy Daniels was in line to security line with the rest of us reporters, there were robes. It felt more like a new city nightclub, frankly than a hearing in the southern district of New York today completely different. A very somber scene today, and I think is soon as Michael Cohen entered that courtroom the entire courtroom calmed down quieted down there, really, no, no gas or any sort of any sort of outbursts from the crowd at all. I think the thing that was so interesting is is soon as he started to allocate he's under oath. At that point in he starts to talk about the actual campaign. He starts talking about the president, and I think everybody that moment had this kind of a stunning sense of wait a minute, Michael Cohen. The president's former personal attorney is directly implicating him in the crimes that he is pleading guilty to today. That was a significant moment in that courtroom in frankly, something I haven't experienced in the trial in very long time. I mean under oath, this man says, I mean, there was always this question..
