"Facebook's board has ruled and upheld the company's decision to suspend a former president trump's accounts however the oversight board is also asking facebook to review the decision within six months to determine a penalty consistent with its rules.

Instead the oversight board found that leaders should be held to the same or higher standards quote. It is not always useful to draw a firm distinction between political leaders and other influential users. The decision reads if a head of state or high government official has repeatedly posted messages. That pose a risk of harm under international human rights norms. Facebook should suspend the account for a period sufficient to protect against imminent harm and

New gigafactory and bruneta near berlin has been delayed by six months until the end of january twenty twenty. Two tesla. boss elon. Musk officially gave the team half a year. More reports automobile voca citing company circles and quote. So this then got picked up kind of all over the place. We had bloomberg report on this market. Watch report on this et cetera.

Permit application to include battery production as we discussed in that episode that may cause further delays. Because the permit may need to then go through the public feedback process again. And we've already seen tesla their dismay with your approval process. How it's been going so far before even these adjustments so i say that because a delay overall wouldn't be all that surprising a delay until the end of january twenty twenty two would be a little bit more than i would expect though and we did hear tesla give us an update on this in their most recent shareholder letter from q. On earnings where they said. The build out of giga berlin is continuing to move forward with production and deliveries remaining on track. For late two thousand twenty one machinery for paint stamping castings et cetera. Continues to be moved into the building. In the meantime we will continue to increase import volumes to europe.

"two thousand" Discussed on The Beat with Ari Melber
"He's either in prison going to prison on trial or something has gone gone awry because the president uses you then throws way once. He's gotten what he needs guys clip from sixty minutes to kind of debunked a little bit of the conspiracy theories that the president many of his allies have been Essentially propagating for some time. Now Watch this. Are there any links to your knowledge between crowd strike and anyone in Ukraine? Not did crowd strike. Ever send any of the. Dnc's computer hardware Ukraine. No that that is that is insane and that is not within the realm of reality. The Russians are very good. It's these fake stories that they have propagated and that's what they do. They do it pretty well. We have to be on guard against that right. So those are the types of fake stories. That Rudy Giuliani is trying to feed to the Department of Justice. And you'd think that they'd turn general but like hey we're not gonna have any of this. We're GONNA stick to the facts. Now he's saying we have an intake process for any information rudy. Giuliani gathers force in the field to take on board. I mean why do you think William Bar is even entertaining these conspiracy theories because the president of the United States is telling him to do so that is his friend and that someone who still thinks can get information on his adversaries. We know that he's highly paranoid. We know that he doesn't trust many people so this is something that he is telling bar to to follow through whatever sent it is no matter. How ridiculous and we know that. We've we've observed this president for several decades now in the media so we know his tells when he repeats things he says some people say we know that he can make things up literally out of thin air but make himself believe it. So that's what that's bars charge. And the sad thing is you have as Vince was saying faithful employees who have dedicated themselves to the United States Constitution and the United States public. Who then have to work under a man who's following the breadcrumbs other president and his sort of paranoid fantasies. Vince speaking of people who are supposed to be loyal to the constitution they're reports of the president is trying to or a top aide to the prison. Trying to reveal the name of the person who wrote that anonymous op-ed that warned against the president in the same way that many of the president's allies have tried to oust or out the whistle blower in all of the impeachment. The Ukraine impeachment stuff. Do you think president trump is going through a list of names that he considers his enemies and going after them. Yes I do. And it's a big long list and it changes in every day. If something happens on twitter or somebody says something the wrong way he goes after them and Nixon did that as well. I mean he was a little bit more stealth about it than than trump. Here's here's what we need to think number one. Is that any time that we're in a situation where there is no protection for whistle blower. That is calling out really bad problematic illegal activity. We are in trouble as a democracy anytime that we have an attorney general establishment that would rather put people stuff on blast and prosecute them than to protect them. We're in trouble the other anytime. We have a attorney. General that was reinvestigating. A range of things it that the Department of Justice already done. We are in enormous trouble with in this country and it does all come from president. Trump's wishes otherwise a person with integrity in bars position would have would have never taken that job to begin with and once confronted with these things would publicly and ceremoniously resigning say I totally. Don't stand for this Vince. Warren thank you so much Christine grier. We're going to talk to you again. Just a little bit too far away. Stick around coming up. Federal prosecutors seeking new witnesses as they investigate Rudy Giuliani plus Michael Bloomberg getting called out by his Democratic rival for trying to hide behind his TV ads and his money and lawmakers demanding answers over taxpayer. Money GOING STRAIGHT INTO DONALD TRUMP'S POCKET. I'm in marketing in Ferrari Melbourne. You're watching the beat on MSNBC HYBRID. When it's Chris Matthews this week on my podcast so you want to be president. I talk with Pulitzer Prize. Winning historian Jon Meacham and former Merlin Congresswoman Donna Edwards about winning campaigns. That make on the spot calls that put candidates on the right side of history search for a wannabe president. Wherever you're listening right now and subscribe new signs of trouble for Rudy Giuliani because even Astros DOJ admits it's taking rudy's dirt on Biden. New report suggests the investigation into Rudy. Himself is now heating up with the Washington. Post reporting that federal prosecutors. Here in New York have been contacting witnesses and looking for additional documents in the Rudy probe since the impeachment trial began wrapping up including interviewing one witness just last week. That story came as CNN. Reports that prosecutors are considering new charges against Giuliani's associate left parnis related to a company that paid rudy. Half a million dollars not sure for what exactly all of it setting up a strange dynamic trump's DOJ looking into rudy's activities even though as his attorney general confirmed last week the DOJ is also evaluating tips. That Rudy is submitting about the. Biden's the DOJ has the obligation to have an open door to anybody Who Wish is to provide us information that that they think is relevant. We had established a an intake process in the field So that Any information coming in about Ukraine could be carefully scrutinized by the Department of that is true for all information that comes to the department relating to the Ukraine including anything. Mr Giuliani might provide. We'd be now for. Us Attorney Carolinian back with us is former federal prosecutor. John Fallon flannery. Excuse me who used to work with Rudy. Giuliani Carolina. Begin with you. Believe there is new life to the investigation into Rudy. And just suggested there you had the attorney general saying hey. We're willing to take information from Rudy Giuliani though. He does not comment on the fact that he is also part of an investigation. Yeah I know that's necessarily new life to the investigation. I think southern district of New York's. Us Attorney's office has been doing what what they should do. I think we knew back in October. That Rudy Giuliani had gotten five hundred thousand dollars from the company that love food and Ran Ironically enough called fraud guarantee but but I think the much more interesting question to me is. Why DOES BILL BAR HAVE TO SET UP Have to set up this separate intake unit out of the district the western district of Pennsylvania in Pittsburgh because although there are times when attorney general's we'll say we're going to use a US attorney's office to look into something because we don't want people thinking there's a conflict of interest here. At main justice. John Durham in Connecticut is looking into a lot of the FBI's activities for example. Here you already have a district. The Southern District of New York that is really looking into these activities in Ukraine And parnasse and firm and and Giuliani and why move part of this intake information to Pittsburgh it. It's it's that's a little troubling to me and I think a question for bill bar would be Why aren't why? Don't you have faith in the southern district of New York to take on both investigations? John The Washington Post suggesting that prosecutors took new steps as the impeachment probe was winding down. Do you think or would they have scale things back during the trial? I don't know why they've been comatose based on the public reports this period of time Those of us who do trial work wonder why when Rudy waved his hand and said in this telephone. I have everything that anybody could ever want to know about this. And he came back on her about. I think the number the eighth and there was a New York magazine article describing him coming back and he had several phones with them. Why aren't those phones being investigated? Why haven't they been seized with a search warrant or whatever was necessary The the problem here is the Justice Department has an identity crisis on the one hand in a battleground state. They set up a transfer of the information that perhaps is the investigation. They couldn't get Dolinsky to do in Ukraine. And they're going to do it here in Pittsburgh and at the same time the fellow that they're taking this information who is not just like anybody off. The street is supposedly under investigation in the southern district of New York. Where Rudy Giuliani's partner is the current? Us Attorney and this guy is the lawyer for the President. We have to wonder if eager and lead or not going to be the ones that end up in the catbird seat when additional charges are brought. And what will happen with Rudy? And I don't know that we have any protection against the overweening ambition of the president and our to secure re election so we we have to watch and see now. I'm a veteran of the southern district of New York called the sovereign district of New York with a history of independence. And I don't think we know enough to know whether or not there under the thumb of Bar and that this division isn't a calculation to Credit Giuliani for now disclosing what terrible things have with the Biden's and offsetting whatever prosecution or investigation. There might be New York. Let Me Carol play for you. What trump had to say about Giuliani just last week? Was it strange? This and Rudy Giuliani to Ukraine. Personal lawyer you sorry you did that. Not at all rudy was a great crimefighter. You know that may be better than anybody. So how could prosecutors use this information? That trump now admits rudy was working on his behalf. Just another sorry just another. I'm sorry Carol another yeah. This is just another example of how the president doesn't understand. I mean he just doesn't understand the lines between what people do in their capacity as as government employees engage in public service. And what they do For the president personally. And and you can't conflate those two roles people who are in public service have something above and beyond The president's own personal interests that is just something that the president does not understand but that does not excuse his conduct. And and and we're those to conflate There are going to be problems so so you know bill bar. His responsibility is to look at those two things separately. He is not persuaded people that he's he's able to do that. All Right Carol. Lam John Flannery. Thank you both for joining us. This hour still ahead. Democrats go on the attack against Michael Bloomberg are they scared of his surge that when we are back in thirty seconds. Bloomberg was sixty. Two billion dollars can buy every ad he wants. Pretty can't in fact wipe away his record on everything from dealing with. Stop and Frisk to his foreign policy assertions in the light that was Joe Biden. Slamming Michael Bloomberg's record in an interview with Nicole Wallace earlier today. Bloomberg's Democratic rival rivals are on ch all sharpening their attacks as he continues to rise in national polls sixty billion dollars can buy a lot of advertising but it can erase record Bloomberg or anybody else..

"General from two thousand. Doj veterans also. New Questions for Bernie Sanders and Michael Bloomberg ahead of the next primary battle in new signs of activity in the criminal. Probe into Rudy Giuliani. But we begin this hour with that backlash against Attorney General Bill Bar after he intervened in the case against trump associate roger stone more than two thousand former justice. Department officials are now demanding. He resigned in a signed letter the former federal prosecutors and other top ranking DOD officials. Right that no one should be given special treatment in a criminal prosecution because they are close political ally of the president and warning governments. That that use excuse me that used their power to punish enemies or reward. Their allies are autocracies now inside the department career prosecutors growing increasingly worried about all of this the New York Times reporting that many wondering whether trump was undermining the department's treasured reputation for upholding the law. And whether bar was able or willing to protect it now as House. Democrats grapple with whether to launch new investigations into trump over his alleged abuse of power. The White House is playing defense. I don't think that it's impossible to this job. In fact I think that attorney general bars doing a great job because a lot of confidence inside the White House. The president is states has not asked or directed his attorney general privately to do anything in any criminal matter including largest owners. It's different now. Meanwhile other trump defenders are trying to say the program. Or excuse me. The problem isn't with the substance of trump's actions. It's just his use of social media. Does the president have a right to tweet about a case? Of course just because you can sing though doesn't mean you should sing. This is a case where tweeting. This would not cause brain damage so late this afternoon. Former vice president Joe Biden telling my colleague Nicole Wallace. That bar helped facilitate the greatest abusive power he has ever seen. This has been most of the greatest abuse of power. I have ever seen at the hands of this president who has no no since decency your understanding of the constitution bars of facilitating. It is beyond my comprehension. No president has ever intimidated in general attorney general abusing power as much as this man has died. So let's start with two people who have signed that letter former. Us Attorney Barbara mcquade and former federal prosecutor. John Flannery let me begin with you if I can Barbara. First of all. Why was it important for you to lend your name to this letter? Well I I wanted to show support for the four career. Prosecutors who were involved in this case file their sentencing memo recommending sentencing guidelines. Were overruled the next day. By the Department of Justice. Three of them withdrew from the case. One resigned from the Justice Department. I wanted to show support for them for doing their jobs. I also wanted to just ask William Bar to step up and be a leader to lead the department. He has famously said. He's not so he's not so concerned about his own reputation because everybody dies well. He also has a duty to represent the reputation of the Department of Justice. And we hope that even though everybody dies the reputation of the Justice Department will endure and John. Same question to you. Why did you feel it was important for you to sign this letter as well? Well I think there are so many data points on how bar is not interested in just us except for Mr Trump and his conciliatory. And so I I am somewhat less charitable that we could ever hope bar to reform his ways. I'm not sure we'll ever have criminal. Justice while bar is the head of the Department of Justice because he will do the bidding of the president and in this particular case. The one that they're concerned about is a mirror of what he was just impeached for because the underlying charge. That isn't discussed enough. Is the interference in our election by stone and the second part is obstructing the investigation by the Intelligence Committee of this interference and coercing and threatening witnesses and lying such that they never got to the answers that the We were able to find afterwards. So this is it seems like the president wants to do that. In this case and in Flynn to evaporate the allegations of misconduct by using his power to silence and diminish and perhaps eliminate these allegations and. I think that the letter was critical. Not just to give to those in the Justice Department who must emulate the actions of these four prosecutors who resisted the effort to interfere in the sentencing procedure. But in the other ones that will come up. I mean what's going to happen in the Flynn case. What's going to happen in New York? What's going to happen in Pittsburgh? This is a critical time. And we have a I think a constitutional crisis because who would a prosecutor Goto above him to correct this not shea. Who was bars person? Not Bar not trump so they have no no recourse except to resign and call them out on it so. I think that's that's the problem right now. Barbara let me get your thoughts on something here. Which is as we have been reporting on this. The four prosecutors involved in the Roger Stone case essentially resigned on mass after this came out that the Department of Justice was withdrawing their sentence recommendation to the court. Do you get a sense that. I'm sure you're probably still in touch with a lot of your former colleagues but you have a pulse on the morale within the Department of Justice. Do think we're at a tipping point for the Department of Justice and its employees under Attorney General Bill Bar. It's hard to know it's a huge department. Eleven thousand employees. It's hard to know what they all feel. But it reminds me a little bit of what was going on in the George W Bush administration just before a Gonzales resigned. You may recall that was in relation to the fire in the US attorneys. And you heard a lot of grumbling within an outside the Department of Justice. And I believe what finally calls? Alberto Gonzales to resign was that he felt he could no longer lead effectively. He had lost the confidence of the people within the Justice Department. And so I think that this letter and that kind of dynamic could be something that Causes William Bar to resign John. The letter calls for Department of Justice Employees. To be prepared report future abuses refuse to carry out directives inconsistent with their oaths of office and withdrawal publicly resigned if if necessary. What message are you trying to send? Do you think those employees the not necessarily all eleven thousand but certainly some of the key federal prosecutors at the very highest level of it would he'd that call. I would hope so. And you know the kind of person who becomes a prosecutor goes to the Justice Department really does believe in the law and there's nothing like the crises of today to understand that lesson and the fact that these four stood up as another example of the Patriots that we have in our government who prepared to take risks and to risk the income to do the right thing and so. I think that this is a message throughout the department. I think that bar will sit. There planted it in his seat as long as trump wants him. There and I believe they're recent Kabuki theatre of him finding it impossible to work. If trump is going to tell the world what misconduct they're perpetrating. On the American people was just that theater bed theater reality. Tv but of the worst kind because it's in defiance of the rule of law and the Constitution and treating all people equally in our justice system. None of which happens with these guys when it comes close to getting reelected to pursuing their power into the next administration if they can pull it off all right Barbara mcquade. Thank you very much John. We're going to see you again a little bit later on in this show. Let's now. Vince worn executive director of the Center for Constitutional Rights and Christina greer political science professor at Fordham University. Great to have both of you with us. So I'm curious to get your thoughts Christina first of all when you kind of look at this to step bands at Donald Trump and William bar doing together. One Hand William Bars saying like. Hey you know what? I can't be influenced. That's what he said during his confirmation hearing takes great pride in trying to be or project independence from the White House but at the same time. Say Hey the president's tweets they're making it impossible for me to do my job. What do you think they're what's the message? They're trying to send your well. I think the message that the president is sending is that I own everyone. I owned The Senate. I owned the DOJ and the Supreme Court. We have to remember two things. One when senator? Kamala Harris was Interviewing Bloomberg during the Senate confirmation hearings he did a lot of what my grandmother would call op dubbing and she has some very direct questions and he couldn't give her a straight answer as to whether or not anyone inside the White House ever instructed grappling with your word of suggesting like not missing the point completely exactly or are you missing the point and then the second is that you know. The president pushed out jeff sessions because he wasn't enough of a wacky weed. We didn't know that the bar could go any lower the A. R. And now we're seeing with this new attorney general that he is essentially pledged his loyalty to the president and he has no control over his department but he jephson he will not leave until the president is down with him and we know that the president sort of views as people and then he decides that he's done with them so the the whole theater of why wish. I could do my job but the tweeting we know that this president uses social media at his own will and everyone else has to adjust to all the illegal things that he likes to say so she gets to that point about social media. Do you buy this argument. That people like Kellyanne Conway and Senator Kennedy. Some of the president's defenders coming on like he has a right to tweet he's tweeting. He's not an in her. Exact words is the president. Didn't say anything to William Bar privately. And she emphasized that word privately a little bit to say you know what he's reading the tweets that's up to him. That's not up to the president. Yeah no I don't buy it it's a Lotta Baloney and what's really interesting. Is that if you really. If you listen to how much people are now talking administration. They're talking about rights. The president's right he's tweeting about his right to do whatever the heck he wants and he's got a wreck to tweet and rights are not really. What's that issue here? What we're talking about is what is appropriate behavior so that the system can be at least viewed you know. Pass the laugh test. Everybody knows that that whether or not bar got a direct message from DONALD TRUMP. He got the message just like Christina said before he even got that job that you could not take that job unless you were doing the president's bidding and he did he's pledged fealty to the president over the United States over the Department of Justice over the rule of law. That is one hundred percent clear. And there's no tweeting or or or or may accompany or crying in your soup on ABC. That's going to change that plus and it is extraordinary. That prosecutors have now called for the current prosecutors to resist. That does not happen. I know a lot of the people that are on that list. These are people who believe in the rule of law that they understand what makes government work and for them to be calling for folks to yet. If you see something say something if you resist and don't move forward anything that you think is inconsistent with your duties. And if you can't do any of those things then resigned that tells you a lot about what the legal establishment thinks about what this administration is doing to the ruling. You can't help but wonder if attorney general bill bars looking at what happened to jeff sessions and saying. I don't want anything. I don't want my career my reputation. Everyone has their time woodshed with this practice. We saw. How Jeff sessions couldn't advocate fast enough to be at the feet of the president and we see everyone who surrounded by this president..
