is he holding -- blessing or is he holding a full house? will hillary be saved by the bill? tonight, mark and john explain it all so you will not be clueless. >> as if. >> we have all that and more on wadr: icial edition of love the 90's. the state department released a report on hillary clinton's use of the world's most private e-mail system. the scathing report confirms a lot of things we already knew. like it violated state department rules. she was not the only secretary of state to do government
business on a personal account. report told us some new and important things. aides andinton's clinton herself did not cooperate with the investigation. when some staffers raised questions, they were told it had been reviewed and approved by the department's legal staff. the clinton camp says, nothing to see here. the republicans were quick to jump on the news. judgmentstioning her include donald j trump, billionaire. donald trump: as i say, crooked hillary. she is as crooked as they come.
she had a little bad news today, as you know, from some reports. not so good. inspector general's report, not good. i want to run against hillary. i do not know if you are going to be able to comment it could be we would run against crazy bernie. mark: not good, says donald trump, about this report. let's start by asking the basic question. what does it become now? it raises a couple of new things. some follow-up reporting, like that story about people raising red flags. being told, nothing to see here.
restsk the ball of wax with the fbi investigation. will there be some criminal charges? that is the big kahuna. this brings it back to the surface. it will not be the last time donald trump talks about this, i am sure. mark: it is an indictment of her judgment. we will see if the clinton campaign decides to attack the investigation? i will say this, she should cooperate. if she wants to be president, if she wants to have a commitment to getting all the facts, she should have cooperated. john: for a year, we heard, this is not all that unusual. this report makes clear that it was very unusual. sayingmit a big point of she wants to cooperate with
everyone. she is willing to testify before the benghazi committee. her being willing to address these issues is an important political talking point. the hacker who claims he breached her server pled guilty as part of a deal. the report says there was an instance of the server being under attack -- under the threat of some attack. john: if there is a proven instance where that server was hacked and some classified material was exposed to hackers, that is a big political problem. -- theald trump republican side of the race has
been a tale of two trumps. one of those storylines is the new trump brand hitting stores near you. yes divide conventional wisdom uniting -- he has divide image in a wisdom -- defied conventional wisdom by uniting factions of this party. that is where demonstrators clashed with police outside a trump rally in albuquerque, reportedly throwing bottles, setting things on fire. protesters repeatedly interrupted trump before being removed. trump did what trump often does. he inflamed the tension. >> get them out. get them out. bring them home to mom. go home to mommy. get them out of here. date, so he is
doing this instead. this is so exciting, isn't it? still wearing diapers. look at this kid. today, trump tweeted about those events last night. today, at a rally in anaheim, trump was again interrupted. looks like this is back. the disarray at some of the trump rallies. it is a different world. opticsblematic are the of all of this? fan of the first amendment. if this continues, it will be part of the clinton campaign trying to paint him as a chaos candidate. i think his conduct in those
a winning formula. it is trump being trump. net negative in a general contest. base isthink his already rallied. i do not think that helps them. who are the persuadable voters? who are the people on the fence, who are movable? -- doook at that mocking they look at that mocking donald trump, regardless of what you think about the protesters, but the bottom line is that is inflaming it rather than trying to tamp it down. agree in the first blush
that is correct. this is a guy who has said and even morethings outrageous than he just did. on the margins, probably not helpful. john: i am not obsessing about it and i do not think it will be decisive. if you think about the way the this, if- images like they play out, are going to get worse. mark: the images -- is notis reaction helpful and the images are bad. mark: donald j trump, billionaire, working on another image these days. athas been successful consolidating support inside the party. reported by our
bloomberg colleagues. paul ryan telling confidants he is ready to end his standoff with trump. today ryan says he has not made up his mind. a spokesman said the speaker and trump are going to talk by phone this evening. mitt romney is still being mentioned as someone who might consider jumping into this presidential race as a third-party candidate. if ryan does endorse drop, how will that impact any calculations romney has about getting into this race? john: i do not know how seriously mitt romney is thinking about getting into this race. people are courting him to try. it will make it harder. it would make it easier -- having ryan as an ally would
make it easier for him to get into this race. having paul ryan be on his side would make securing the easier than lot having ryan being an official trump backer. the deliberations have been more detailed than have been reported so far. it is still difficult for him to do. it is already hard for people in the anti-trump movement to say, i am this, but a lot of people i .ike are endorsing trump for romney to say, this is a moral outrage, when the guy he picked as a running mate endorses him --
>> some of the first speeches we gave at the new york city was about raising wages. she talked about a profit-sharing proposal that companies forize rewarding workers. mark: that is not part of the of the structure plan. anything original about the infrastructure plan? of -- how she level would pay for it. discussion in the earlier segment. we put out a raft of middle-class tax cuts. tax cuts for prescription drug costs and childcare. we have not revealed the whole extent. mark: so more is coming?
brian: absolutely. we did that on purpose for preserving it for the general election campaign. mark: how does tax policy relate to economic growth for families? brian: hillary clinton views the tax code as a vehicle for helping incentivize responsible behavior by corporate citizens. you have the profit-sharing proposal, she has also use the tax code to diss incentivize some of that irresponsible corporate behavior we have seen. she would impose an exit tax on companies who tried to invert themselves and register themselves as having their headquarters abroad. that is something we have seen president obama crackdown on. but she is going to go further. as soon as youm try to leave. proposal.clawback
if you close a factory in the united states and move jobs overseas, we will clawback the value of your tax credit which helped you subsidize your research. mark: how would you characterize her philosophy towards -- brian: our story we will tell is that president obama has done a herculean task in terms of lifting the country out of a great recession. the prosperity we are starting to see is not fully shared and we still have a stacked deck were too much of the rewards of the improved economy are flowing to the top in terms of ceo pay, shareholder dividends. not enough of that money is flowing down. money from the people who are currently well-off and move it down the ladder? brian: that is what it is all
about. we think it would be a significant inducement towards more responsible -- and we think it is smart corporate behavior. we think that is the type of smart, forward-looking approach to running your business that we should incentivize. years,t the end of four how would middle-class families be doing? brian: her number one goal is to see wages rise. mark: by? brian: our goal is to achieve something we have not seen since the 1990's. john: she has talked about how president clinton is going to have a role in her white house as economic advisor. is he an advisor on the economy now? brian: he has got a wealth of
ideas at any given time. john: are there ideas that she has put forward that come from him? brian: it is not some official role where he would be the chair or have some cabinet post. he has focused on regions of the country that have seen a lot of this investment. -- disinvestment. i will not credit any of these proposals exclusively to him. that would not be accurate. these proposals are her own. mark: she has taken some criticism for this. is there political risk involved in that? brian: i think she was just speaking sincerely about the role she wants him to play.
you are a former justice department spokesman. has secretary clinton be interviewed by the fbi regarding the e-mail investigation? brian: i do not have an update on that. mark: has her counsel been contacted? when she is, will you announce it? another, i am or sure everybody will be apprised. let me be clear, because sometimes our political opponents try to parse words. since last august when this review was first announced, david kendall has been in recurring touch with officials at the justice department, as anybody would. nothing that has moved toward, can we schedule an appearance? is beingry mcauliffe investigated. do you know anything about that?
brian: i have nothing to say on that. mark: do you have any reasons to believe he would do anything wrong? aware ofm sure you are the instagram video donald trump posted. mark: you have not looked at a question mark brian: i watched it. john: what did you think of it? brian: this is the latest in his strategy to try to distract from and issues based campaign. i think it is bad strategy. i have seen smart republican operatives go on television and say they have tested these lines of attack and they alienate independent voters, especially women. every day he spent engaged in this type of stop is a misspent opportunity for him. plan,is it the campaigns
when he raises these issues, your plan to go through the whole campaign and respond in this way? we will not dignify that with a response. brian: i do not think donald sees these attacks as having some political upside with independent voters. here is what i think he is doing -- i think he is trying to practice the politics that worked for him in the primary. throw stuff out there and try to get under people's skin. take whatever collateral damage it will bring. his negatives are hard-earned at this point. people talk about the negatives of hillary clinton and him being apples to apples.
i think he has courted these -- the downsides of accruing these high negatives because he thinks this is a way to get inside his opponents have. hillary clinton is not going to go for that. this is somebody who has a steel backbone. john: we will see if we can crack you. republican have two strategists. we will be right back with that. ♪
trump donor score today. how did he do it? charm.oes it through he vanquished 16 opponents. a very successful first outing with the rnc. it shows the party unity starts from the top. -- andou are for trump you are not. you have knowledge this is an impressive list. if he can put together a list like this, why not say -- >> donor's fault into basically two categories. most major donors are staying out of it. open to funding an independent candidate or they will sit on
the sidelines. , some of themp are saying i am on board. others are saying, i do not want to be seen as giving -- being disloyal for the party. shove, if this race is truly winnable for trump, he has the capacity to fund it. mark: update us on where the search for a third candidate stands. dan: no update. i would say the odds are -- ne: i think you would find amelia ehrhardt before you find -- i want to ask you both, if the people on the new york times
list will never get to trump and you have these people on the other side, is this enough to get trump the amount of money he needs? >> it is an amazing and oppressive start. those who are going to give but have not yet given, trying to decide where is a safe, comfortable vehicle? is there a super pac that already exist? folks who-- a lot of are #never hillary. hold, will trump be able to raise enough money? dan: i do not think donald trump -- that will not get him a fraction of what hillary is going to raise.
