mark: i am mark halperin. john: i am john heilemann. and with all due respect to bernie sanders and hillary clinton can we are looking tisnales andar parties and al talking points and rebuttal. ♪ mark: happy gotham city debate date, sports fans. john: we'll cover the brawl between hillary clinton and bernie sanders. prosecutors in florida announce
8:01 pm
they will drop formal battery charges against corey lewandowski, after michelle fields was grabbed last month. here is dave ehrenberg explaining his decision this afternoon. dave: while the evidence in the case is legally sufficient for the police to charge mr. lewandowski, it is not strong enough to meet the legal burden of a conviction. it is not uncommon for an inner circle staff member to assist in clearing a safe pathway. it should be noticed that one agent was positioned directly behind ms. field and appeared to show no concern over her actions. mr. lewandowski could have called this agent's attentions to her movements before taking action himself, if he considered in addition, soon after the lewandowski denied ever touching mrs. fields in any way.
8:02 pm
although these factors might undermine mr. lewandowski's potential defense, they do not outweigh the reasonable hypothesis of innocence based on the real-time facts and circumstances recorded on the video. mark: prosecutors released incident,deo of the with a wider shot of the room showing mrs. fields ignoring donald trump's protective bubble while the rest of the press is being directed to another area. they factored that into their decision. my question to you is, does this announcement put trump's lewandowski drama firmly and finally behind him? john: the first thing i want to say, the people in the press have a tendency to believe everyone is innocent until proven guilty. the minute the charges were brought, everyone assumed he would be tried and convicted. and people have to remember, innocent until proven guilty.
8:03 pm
in this case, i think it caused controversy when trump was going to a rough patch. i do not think at this point that, even though there will be fallout from the way the charges were dropped, it will not have any impact on the chances that trump has of being elected. john: i agree with your first point. and we on this program made the point of innocent until proven guilty on the day it happened and that it was unprecedented. we never saw anything like this with a charge raised against the campaign manager of a presidential candidate. at that moment when things were going south for donald trump, starting with the way that he was treating heidi cruz followed by the abortion comments, this was part of a series of things that caused donald trump to falter in wisconsin. mark: it was part of the atmosphere in which the anti-trump movement found traction.
8:04 pm
john: i do think that is trump is not the nominee, wisconsin will have proven to be an important context and that narrative, and this will be part of that turning point, even though corey lewandowski will not be formally charged. mark: there are questions about lewandowski's role in the campaign now that paul manafort is part of the team. at the time, the confluence of changes in how the campaign was structured with lewandowski being charged lead people to say that this would cause him to diminish in influence. he is still by donald trump's side, still travels with the candidate, still is an influential player in the campaign. the fact that he will no longer face charges names that he could go back to focusing. trump is standing by him, and lewandowski's public praise and gratitude brings an already close relationship even closer. john: yes, no question about it. let us be clear. it is the opposite thing. trump has stood by lewandowski, but formal charges were filed
8:05 pm
and the prosecution, if it had gone forward, it would have been difficult for lewandowski to stay in the campaign going forward, if he had been prosecuted. the alternative would have been huge for corey lewandowski and the campaign. i think again, i think there is a good message for campaign managers going forward, try to err on the side of not touching reporters that all. palm beach county prosecutors and lewandowski's attorney and donald trump himself spoke to them and offered their sides of the story. they said that the political pressure had no bearing on their final determination. still, this case has led to a lot of not so flattering headlines. the question is, how much damage will do is due to trump? will it have lasting effects? and was the contact with prosecutors were vaguely ok? ok?re perfectly
8:06 pm
john: i think that what trump making the case for his campaign manager, his friend, corey lewandowski, is inappropriate. that is political pressure in my judgment. an employer coming forward and giving your side of the story in that way does not cross a line. as least as far as what i know in that moment. we can get on to the larger question in a second. mark: i think that it is not uncommon for prosecutors to decide not to go forward after someone is charged. i do think that you can imagine a scenario where if hillary clinton had called the prosecutor about her campaign manager and said he is a nice person, you can imagine them saying that was improper influence. john: on the broader thing, i talked about the wisconsin
8:07 pm
atmosphere. again, i think that there is a broader thing. lewandowski, the prosecutors have not preceded. i think that for republicans worried about donald trump at the top of the ticket, incidents of this kind that raise unusual and unprecedented drama and melodrama, it has reinforced -- they were predisposed not to want donald trump as their nominee, but it has created a miasma, as part of the broader picture that makes people in the republican party that are queasy more queasy. that these are the kinds of things that are likely to arise if he is the nominee. and people want to stay away from this mess. mark: one of those things that people liked and attracted people to donald trump in the town hall was his family. no drama. no drama obama. you will never hear anyone say no drama trump. that less drama. if you has less drama, republicans will be reassured. john: next, we turned into the

8:10 pm
♪ mark: there are excitable types that are expecting explosives nyc-style fireworks when hillary clinton and bernie sanders collide on the cnn debate stage this evening. if the past is any indication, clinton will swing at sanders on gun control and question his readiness to be president. sanders could keep up his attacks on her judgment on
8:11 pm
things, like super pacs and the iraq war when he is not pointing at wall street. sanders is expected to land some for being paid to make a big speech. in this case, $20,000 for a 2013 speech at verizon, one of the companies that sanders said was "destroying the moral fabric of this country." workers, bothking clinton and sanders addressed yesterday. what are you looking for from hillary clinton and the challenger, the kid from brooklyn, bernie sanders? john: the most obvious thing is the only thing to say. given the escalation intentiand tension and negativity, to some extent, in personal rhetoric since the new york primary has gotten underway, i expect this to be the most contentious immigrant debate so far. it might be the last debate of consequence. there is still talk about having one more.
8:12 pm
if hillary clinton wins big here and big in the northeastern and mid-atlantic, this race could be over by the time we get to the next democratic debate. a lot on the line for bernie sanders especially. mark: she has won an inordinate amount of the debates that she has been in. he needs to have something happen tonight that she doesn't expect. her team will be prepared for so many things. unless he can come up with something that throws her and causes her to be seen in a different light, she will be fine. what do i expect? i don't expect him to come up with that. every indication is that he is not prepared for this in the way that any other candidate would. he has been great in many ways. these are big moments, he has to rise to the occasion and create a paradigm shifting event. know,well, look, as you the one debate she lasted 2008 was the question of drivers licenses for illegal immigrants. it was a question she didn't expect. she will expect everything
8:13 pm
sanders brings that her. the fact that she has gotten under his skin, there's just enough annoyance and irritation between these two that there is a chance things could get heated. and just judging by how the clinton people reacted on television to the verizon paid speech thing, they didn't have a good answer, she better have a better answer. because that could get very charged if she doesn't have a good riposte. mark: they're both in a room where gasoline has been built on the floor and they are fighting with torches. i'm not as sure as you that tonight will be a pop, it could be a fizzle. john: last night, bernie sanders packed 27,000 supporters. 27,000 supporters. plus, nearly as many celebrities. it was a big night of music and speeches. a few people were witnessed not
8:14 pm
only feeling the bern, but smoking burning stuff. one speech in particular was causing sanders campaign a little bit of headache and heartache. it was made by a health care activist. he went a little too far in his description in the relationship between politicians and corporations. hear dr. song's remarks and how sanders reacted with andrea mitchell from cnn today. >> i agree that medicare for all will never happen. if we have a president that ever as to anything greater than the status quo. [applause] medicare for all will never happen if we continue to elect corporate democratic whores who are beholden to -- jane: as soon as we heard it, we immediately responded. that is not something that we expected. he was a speaker at one event. he was one of many speakers. unfortunately, we were not there to hear it. he would have spoken up immediately. mark: bernie sanders tweeted
8:15 pm
"dr. song's comment was inappropriate and insensitive. there is no room for language like that in our political discourse." sanders, like a lot of candidates, and more than other candidates, has had a lot of surrogate foot in mouth moments. there is the one time at a rally when killer mike said a uterus does not qualify you to be president. there was a time that actor tim robbins said that hillary clinton's south carolina win was as significant as winning guam. said, campaigns have trouble with surrogates. sanders' campaign has had more problems with surrogate. why? why is the sanders campaign having this trouble? mark: from a campaign that started from a standing start, they are well-funded, but this is a fly-by-night slapdash
8:16 pm
organization. as are all campaigns, but it is a culture that is not button-down and button-up. the sanders people reacted quickly. the problem is not that they have -- that they happen a lot, but he does not have a day to have half a new cycle of this. they just do not have the luxury of lov that. he has had trouble staying on message, in a way that breaks through. he is consistent, but you have to mix it up. it is easy to have the same stump speech. he made no news. he said his normal stuff. that is disciplined, but this overshadows it, and that is a problem. john: i will say this. and we touched on it a little, there is a lot of frustration among sanders supporters top to bottom. some famous, some not so famous. some of that has taken on a tone of hostility. you and i have experienced this. we have given bernie sanders fair coverage on this show. we have interviewed him dozens of times.
8:17 pm
his wife, many times. and yet, we are attacked much more harshly by sanders supporters on twitter and elsewhere than trump supporters. there is a frustration with how the race is going. it has taken on a hostile tone in recent weeks that i think is a little different than other things i have seen in the past. mark: i think the press has the right to ask the question, as they do about donald trump. in sanders world, are they doing anything to create an environment where this harsh rhetoric is used? john: there is a lot of it around. mark: coming up, a bit more to preview of the democratic debate. washington post's anne gearan, after these words from our sponsors. ♪
8:18 pm
8:19 pm
8:20 pm
♪ now to continue our preview of the democratic debate in brooklyn, anne gearan, a correspondent for "the new york post." we were having back-and-forth that what we expected from the debate. conflict galore. mark thinks a fizzle. what do you think? anne: i go more on your side. it is just inevitable. there is been so much friction, this has become a grudge match. it ahave tried to stick step back. it has not worked. they have tried to take a step back. within the same news cycle, either they or someone siding with them starts at over.
8:21 pm
they are destined to butt heads tongiht. ight. there will not be name-calling. but there will be a lot of friction. john: struggling to give an answer about her big payday from verizon. does the campaign seemed to be worried about the verizon speech , or in general about the paid speeches? anne: they think it is water under the bridge. certainly it is not water under the bridge for bernie sanders' supporters. it is something that i expect sanders to bring up. bare.lome loaded to she took a lot of money from this company that is now the subject of a strike in the middle of manhattan. they both went to the picket line yesterday. there is too much for his corporate message for that not to be the subject tonight. mark: we asked question starting in october when sanders started to turn a little bit for contrast in the jefferson-jackson dinner, when
8:22 pm
would he start to make the contrast more personal? he has done that more in the last week or so than ever before . he has not gone way over the line or as far as some think he would profit from doing, but he has never won a debate. so far. do you think he will continue in that vein that he has exhibited on the debate stage, or that he will be trying to back away from it on the big stage? anne: we've seen him back away from it on the big stage a little. i mean certainly at the very he appeared, when to take the e-mail controversy off the table, which was surprising -- he will try to do something like that again. again, this primary on tuesday, days away, is make or break for him. he knows it. he has to make a splash. he has to do and say something that breaks through and puts her on the defensive. that is what he will be trying to do.
8:23 pm
john: let me ask you this. do you think hillary clinton will go on the offense on the qualifications thing? anne: yes. she has to make a mark, too and be seen being on defense the whole time. john: i cannot remember candidates debating this many times without his or her spouse coming. president clinton is not coming tonight. anne: the clinton campaign is using bill clinton as a counterprogramming message. he goes where she is not almost all of the time. it mostly works, except when he goes off message from time to time. which happens. she has long seen his presence in the same room when she is doing something political as a real, you know, double-edged sword. he can get the crowd riled up, but he becomes the focus of attention, not her. i think he feels the same way. he has said a few times that he likes to step back and give her the limelight. this is one of those occasions. mark: after the debate, we will
8:24 pm
eat pretzels. what are you going to be doing? anne: i will be getting on a plane with bernie sanders going to rome. mark: we were talking before the segment started, despite what the vatican said and the conventional wisdom, he said that he still might see the pope? anne: the vatican has not ruled it out. the senior vatican spokesman says there are no plans for the pontiff, pope francis, to see bernie sanders. that is not the same thing as saying it absolutely won't happen. john: some suggested that it will definitely happen. anne: there is a good chance. certainly -- john: would there be a picture? anne: probably. the vatican is pretty press friendly. contrary to many appearances, and there are certainly often, not always, photographs of the pope when he meets with people. that would be such of money moment for bernie sanders. i take him at his word that it
8:25 pm
will be meaningful on a personal level, meeting with someone with whom he feels a kinship on policy issues and would like to meet. i mean, that goes without saying. really, it seems perfectly obvious. it would be such a huge moment for him. it would validate and justify his taking 40 hours of of the f of the campaign trail in new york to fly to rome to give, what on paper, is a 15 minute speech. mark: you have followed her throughout the campaign. she has come home, her adopted home . is she campaigning like a hometown candidate? have you noticed a different tenor? a different level? anne: yes. she has gone hyper local. she has managed to get, in true new york fashion, everyone from the bureau president to the deputy assistant councilman to warm up for her.
8:26 pm
she knows them all by name. she does the new york thing where she thanks 42 people. she talks about hyper local issues. she took a swipe at bernie sanders, while he was having his gigantic rally at washington square park. at the same time, she was talking to a couple thousand people. we don't know exactly how much. but much smaller crowd than he had. in the city of the bronx. she said, wouldn't it be nice to have a president that knows where co-op city is. that could have been a swipe against the republicans, but, in context, it seemed to be a swipe against him. mark: are the clinton folks suspicious about the tax returns and if there's something there, or do they like to ride the issue? because it is a good question to play offense. anne: people have drawn attention to the fact that they have not been released. they have been careful. i do not know what the spin machine is, but i do not detect that they are pushing the issue a great deal.
8:27 pm
i mean, certainly people who are friendly with clinton have made the point that one reason that he has not released the whole thing is to not make an issue about the fact that he has not given much, or anything at all, to charity. which she has and most people of means do. and if he isn't, why not? mark: i think it is is goldman sachs stock. mark: anne gearan, thank you. have fun tonight. coming up, alex wagner joins us to talk about the presidential race. we will be right back with her, after these messages. ♪

showtime colleague, alex wagner. john: i thought you were going to bring us pretzels. alex: there were none in the green room. it was some chips -- sunchips or bust. john: did you watch the troubled trump family? i was wondering what your impressions were. alex: my favorite moment was the new york observer this week. the endorsement from jared, donald trump's son-in-law. mark: it was close. alex: this is the season where newspaper endorsements have carried more heft than they have in previous elections. specifically in new york, i guess i mean more of the bernie sanders and hillary clinton fight of the new york daily news, and their eventual endorsement of clinton. mark: do you think some voters discounted it because it was the son-in-law of the paper? alex: as with all things trump,
8:31 pm
mark, you can never really discount conventional wisdom. conventional wisdom has been upended. mark: it goes out the doors fast as an empty pretzel box. alex: it does. the trump family is a fascinating family. i don't know that the more that america gets to know them the more they are endeared, but it is interesting to see the dynamics on display. mark: let me ask you this question. donald trump is talking about how the system is rigged. do you think smart political move or whiny? alex: i think for his supporters, it is a confirmation of everything they have been hearing thus far. that is the season in american politics. of the message that bernie sanders has been saying. every time donald trump says the system is broken, it is his insurance policy at the convention. i think there is a looming fear
8:32 pm
that if trump is denied the nomination in the second round of voting, that there will be a unpredictable schism that the republican party should be very careful about bringing about. that is his warning. right? i mean, it is a silent call to the supporters, and a warning to the establishment, about the tactics they pursue in july. john: let's talk twitter accounts. shall we? alex: i live my life on them. mark: i would come back to this question, john and i talked about it. about whether the sanders campaign deserves scrutiny the way the trump does for creating a climate that perhaps yields course language. we saw last night at an event where sanders had not arrived, but the official event, a campaign surrogate speaker at their event called hillary clinton a name. john: it wasn't clear that he called her that. the suggestion -- mark: he made the suggestion.
8:33 pm
a guy the same event said, said ask verizon. that suggests that kind of language is fine. do think that the sanders campaign, like the trump campaign, has created a climate where on social media, television, and events their surrogates feel more liberated to be rough? john: surrogates and supporters. alex: well, i don't think we are seeing the same amount of physical melees that we have seen at trump events. i think sanders, specifically jane sanders, has been clear that they will ultimately support hillary clinton. i think she has tried to channel some of what may be eventual outrage and disappointment intro reform. this morning, she was giving suggestions that the center's sanders campaign may try to
8:34 pm
exert its muscle by pushing for transparency. otherwise, push for ways to make the democratic party a better party. john: to channel the energy into a productive thing. alex: which is not what we're hearing from trump. the scorched earth threat. it is not an apples to apples comparison. the question for all of us is, to what degree is there a laying down of arms? a circling of the wagons? an agreement from the centers clinton campaigns that we must come together, name-calling aside, july is july. november is november. john: so bernie sanders came out to wisconsin, where you were with us. you saw the energy and how much traction his campaign had and had huge victory. the clinton people were saying this will be a competitive race. trying to talk down expectations. the sanders people were saying we might be able to win new york. this past week has been nothing like this. we have the public and private polling showing a 12 point lead.
8:35 pm
8, 10, 12. why has sanders not been able to capitalize on the momentum coming out of wisconsin and to terrain that both sides that would be fertile? alex: totwo things. initially, the clinton campaign thought it would be a 20 point spread in new york. right? so, it had shrunk a little. it is interesting. sanders has chosen to campaign in new york city, which is a more diverse electorate. that is part and parcel because he needs to change the narrative that he cannot do well among minority voters, he needs to change that. he could do better if he wanted to compete. he has chosen to be in urban locations. right? you saw the rally in greenwich village, 27,000 people were there. it is clear that that is their momentum. the optical momentum. that is what they will try to carry forward. in the next few weeks, in new york, the question is on a practical level, it is a
8:36 pm
close to primary. it is only registered democrats that had to register by march 25. they are not bernie sanders' wheelhouse. if there was an open primary, he would have done better. there will be seven more closed primaries. it will be an uphill battle. as far as the big moe. competeoks like he will all the way to california. is there any moment between now and california where hillary clinton would perform well or be equally over? alex: medium rare? i think -- i think sanders will be in the race for tsonga long as sanders will be in the race. that endpoint is the convention. the only thing that changes between now and then is the recalibration of the ask. map. if it looks like it is not in his favor, that it looks to be the case. john: alexander wagner. alex: alexandra wagner.

8:40 pm
a nomination, and avoiding a deadlocked convention in cleveland. >> in order to become the republican party's nomination, the candidate needs the majority of delegates, 1237. donald trump is more than halfway there, with 743. ted cruz follows with 545. and john kasich is an distant third with 143. neither ted cruz or john kasich have a realistic chance of winning the nomination before the summer. the math does not add up. donald trump is the only one with a shot. but even his path is narrowing. with 16 contests left, trump 800d need 62% of those delegates left to avoid a contested convention in cleveland. how does trump get there? the northeastern state contests are critical. if he wins to new york and connecticut with a strong showing in rhode island, he can
8:41 pm
get a simple plurality from the winner take all contest in delaware and new jersey. he could lose half of the remaining delegates and still make it to the 1237 by early june. if he pulls it off at the northeast it would marginalize john kasich, and could make it easier in a race with ted cruz. however, even in a best case scenario, it could still be down to the wire. mark: so, i keep saying the biggest moment for trump is after callow california, when he can wrangle. if he does well in the northeast over the next few weeks, he will get a majority. john: he could. and one of the key things is if he can recapture the performances that he had when he was on a roll. new york, that seems obvious, but new york will be funny because he has home field advantage. everybody expected him to win
8:42 pm
this day. it was perfectly timed for him to come after wisconsin. how well does he perform in the mid-atlantic and northeast? as we know, we wait for the voters to vote. we will see. if he blows those states out and rides the momentum out of new york to the next mega-primary, you could easily see him back on the trump train and really just sweeping. mark: i will agree with you 100%. if he does not get it done by the last day, that period in june will be very important. but every day after june 7 that he is not already at 1237 is a day where his nomination likelihood goes down a little. i think it is daunting for him. john: if someone wearing position, you would see
8:43 pm
massive endorsements, pressure on the other candidates to get out. none of that has happened. he has not gotten a major endorsement in a long time, but neither has ted cruz or john kasich. this thing is frozen. but the question is now can paul manafort and his colleagues for trump try to create a gater correlation with how trump does at the ballot box and the delegates he wins? mark: here is the thing about delegation. we would agree, and many people we know would agree that paul manafort is a guy who knows what he is doing. another guy really knows what he is doing. the only question is it too late? up next, we are joined to talk about donald trump at a big republican gala in gotham city. ♪

8:47 pm
to woo the republican establishment in new york city. you had ted cruz today on an msnbc town hall, saying that he believed he was right when he called mitch mcconnell a liar. that is him trying to bolster his antiestablishment, outsider credentials. donald trump is running this outsider campaign. john kasich, not so much. but all of them are trying to woo the establishment in new york. donald trump is leading by a lot . he is expected to win big, and he needs to to get as many delegates as he can to close the gap and potentially get to the number of 1237 at the convention. so, it is an important stay for him. ted cruz at john kasich are trying to eat away at any support they can. ted cruz is trying to lure voters in upstate new york, trying to hit them with the downstate democrats and liberal politicians that have not been representing their values. we will see if that works. but so far, it looks like this
8:48 pm
state is in the can for donald trump. john: i'm trying to exercise every bit of restraint to ask you to turn around to interview people behind you. katy: i can do it. i will, if you want me to. mark: stay where you are. in wisconsin, donald trump started doing two to three events per day. the pace here has been more normal trump-like. do we expect, as we get closer to tuesday, that he will add more events or that he is doing one a day, trump-style? katy: we will see him do more events. his schedule is really in flux from the information we have here there could be a rally in poughkeepsie, but not the same really hard-core schedule they had a few weeks ago, where there were campaign stops in multiple cities on the same day. the kind of stuff that really
8:49 pm
exhausts campaign reporters and the candidate, as well, frankly. john: katy, can you give us a window into the trump campaign operations? we have seen a lot of change after many months of this close-knit rather unusual campaign structure. we now have paul manafort, corey lewandowski being exonerated, or with charges not being pressed. give us a picture of what it is ofe in the inner sanctum donald trump's political world. katy: it is a house divided. it is the core lewandowski camp, let trump to drop and insulate him from negative press and bad news. insulate him from anyone else other than corey lewandowski and his communications director. morehen there is the
8:50 pm
established strategists who have done campaigns before that are building what is being dubbed as a parallel campaign to diminish corey lewandowski's influence and power. i am told by sources they basically said that they are happy to let lewandowski travel with donald trump and make sure his events ago well. basically to act as a glorified advance man, while they deal with strategy. one of the things they point to is where they found the interview with donald trump and reince pre-bus. he is painted himself as an outsider that is speaking to voters that does not fill ell represented by washington. there are those in the paul camp that say this is
8:51 pm
not a good idea. that you need delegates, and they are often party loyalties. ted cruz is doing better on the second tablet. there are two campaigns being run at the same time. and we are going to see which one wins. ultimately, as you guys well know, donald trump does not listen to anyone unless he wants to. he will continue acting the way that he has acted throughout his entire campaign. and listening to himself. john: katy, do you know what they say about house divided against itself? katy: it cannot stand. mark: just like george, they cannot stand. thank you for coming on the show and letting me do a seinfeld joke. and don cheadle, after this. ♪
