9:00 am
>> and buyer beware, apple's new i marvel has one serious i-flaw. >> i will bend this iphone 6 plus. one of three officers and the nation's first african-american attorney general will be announcing he is going to resign as soon as the successor is confirmed. an announcement with the president is scheduled for 4:30 at the white house. this comes at a critical juncture in the fight against a spreading terror threat. matt miller is a department spokesperson and michael lighter is a director and msnbc terror analyst. we begin with pat leahy, the chairman who joins me by phone
9:01 am
from vermont. thank you very much for joining us. talk about eric holder and the impact of his resigning and what you could expect from confirmation hearings. >> i talked with the attorney general holder today about this. i also talked to the white house and hoped they would be able to decide the nomination soon. i remember the day he was sworn in and the cheer s ths that ech.
9:02 am
i have been here throughout a lot of attorneys general. nobody has done it better than he has. >> senator, what about the challenges and the incompletes let's say. guantanamo still open, khalid shaikh mohammed sheik mohamed not on trial because it could not take place. >> guantanamo should be closed by now except for the legislation blocking it. it is ridiculous that we are
9:03 am
spending millions a person down there. and accomplishing nothing for our safety. the finest justice system in the world and we should not act like we are afraid of these people. we bring them before our courts. just as we did with abu ghraib. the son in law of osama bin laden. i remember the screams that came from some of the congress when eric holder announced he was going to go before a court in and he are not afraid of these people and we could stand up to them and we have a justice system that works. i think if it had been somebody other than eric holder, you
9:04 am
might have run from the criticism and that would have been a huge mistake. that's why he was such a good attorney general. >> let me ask you about possible successors and the process. so the filibuster rule. i believe that is correct other than for a supreme court justice. that said, do you think that a career person would be more easily confirmable especially with mid-terms approaching and the possible that the senate would change hands when a career person who was vetted be more
9:05 am
easily nominated than a political person like duvall patrick who was close to the president? >> i'm not going to speculate that this is the chief law enforcement officer of the country. i would hope that nobody would try to block an up or down vote on the chief law enforcement officer of the country. in the height of irresponsibility. >> senator, thank you very much. the senate judiciary chairman will preside over any nomination hearing. thank you again for calling in. with me here are michael lighter and matt. first let me ask you about the report from iraq's new prime minister.
9:06 am
you set this in new york and the authorities are checking into this and you do not know of specific threats. >> you have to take it seriously and also with a grain of salt to be reported throughout the surety services. they have a long history of reporting. sometimes we get nuggets. i'm not surprised with everything that is going in iraq and syria. we will get more reports and most will be false. >> obviously your nypd and terror officials are on this and they are telling us you do not have any back up. >> there is no city in the country as well prepare as new york. on the intelligence front, if there is a plot working with federal officials and also to respond. very hefty working with the fbi. obviously this is very, very experienced and doing what they are doing now. >> they work with the justice department. how concerned should americans
9:07 am
be that there will be a transition. he won't leave until a successor is confirmed. these are relationships where communication happens in meetings and national security council meetings. is the fbi director the key player here on the terror threat level. >> here's one of the key players. he will have big shoes to fill. the general has been there for four years. they are experienced with the fbi at doj prior. there a number of officials and as you said, the attorney general will stay on until a successor is confirmed. >> i want to talk more about the terror threat and the other part of his legacy. the first african-american attorney general with the history of this country. his showing up in ferguson, illinois. what that meant to people, the credibility he has brought with civil rights cases around the
9:08 am
country. speak to that. >> it's true. one of the stories about eric holder that people will come to understand is are many of the things that were so controversial when he took office. the things he said and things he didn't. they have proven to vindicate that. when all of the work to restore that, all of the outreach he did to the communities of color, you saw that culminate when it didn't matter that it was an african-american attorney general. he could speak with credibility that others may not be ready to do. >> the sensibility that he brings to the voting rights issue. and other issues that affect people of color and people who lived in disadvantaged communities. >> that's right. when he became the chairman, he talked about the day he showed up. i was there. people were literally walking the halls with tears in their eyes and after the department had gone through the biggest
9:09 am
scandal in history, he set out from the beginning to restore the department's credibility to rebuild the divisions who had been marginalized in the bush years. you see that work and sometimes it was behind the scenes. really in the last years, you have seen it come to the reforms and ultimately the civil rights work in ferguson. >> a big legacy indeed. let's talk about copycat terrorists who have looked back at what happened in the london streets a year ago. with that young soldier. he was beside headed in front of people with the two terrorists and inviting people to take pictures and video. it seems that that was an early warning of what we are now seeing. how threatened should people be on the philippines and where does it stop? >> we have to remember in the big scheme of things, the likelihood of a terrorist attack
9:10 am
affecting someone's life is minute versus another range of threats. but copycats and people who were inspired and not directed especially because isis is so good with social media. i can present a risk and a challenge from the security officials. we have seen it over seas and we haven't seen it as much. i know that the fbi and the department of homeland security is part of the reason for the refreshed outreach. it's to try to identify the individuals who might be inspired and pose a threat. it's not 9/11, but it can be awe powerful threat ask a huge win for isis if someone takes this. >> how important was it finally that the algerian terror group wants to align itself with isis. >> groups started to affiliate
9:11 am
with al qaeda. that's a huge boom for them with recruitment and shows even if they are not a local threat to the u.s. in that region, throughout the world isis is posing a threat to u.s. and allies's interests. >> thank you both very much. breaking news today. and the other big topic this week is the growing threat from ebola. the world organization said nearly 3,000 people have been killed by the disease in five countries. more than 6,000 have been infected. this morning president obama held several high level meetings about the outbreak and had tough words for the world leaders there. >> we are not moving fast enough. we are not doing enough.

9:15 am
and more now on the breaking news about the comments made by iraq's about possible terror plots uncovered with subways in the u.s. and paris. spokesperson for the state department. good to see you. what can you tell us about what a body is saying about this possible terror threat. >> the united states takes every threat or every element of information from any of the partners seriously. we look to corroborate that. we have no confirmation at this point in time. we are obviously focused on foreign fighters. the president spoke to that
9:16 am
yesterday. this is not an issue discussed in the bilateral meetings over the last couple of days. >> we talked to michael who said that the iraqi security force while occasionally providing nuggets has been not as professionalized as the other partners we have in the region. it has to be taken with a grain of salt. >> we always look to corroborate information regardless of the partner and we work to do that. i think it's important for people to understand we don't have confirmation of the plot. >> the pentagon announced the latest strikes against prefabricated oil refineries in syria which according to the administration produced as much as $2 million a day for isis. those strikes were carried out our time 4:00 or 3:00 yesterday afternoon our time. what is the importance of the continual flow of money to isis? and our efforts to try to cut
9:17 am
that off? >> it's such an important component of this. clearly we are working with our partners to continue the military component of this effort. building this coalition including taking out financing and what happened overnight or what happened yesterday is an important component. building this to take this on is what we will have general allen do and what the ambassador will be doing. we will be heading to the region. if they are there, we will have a hard time defeating and destroying them. >> and let me also show you the new edition of the economist that has an image of barack obama as george w. bush, mission accomplished on that carrier. he has changed dramatically in the last year. his speech last year was we are withdrawing for iraq and our troops are back and we will be withdrawing from afghanistan and the end of the decade of war.
9:18 am
now we are getting into a war frame of mind and fighting in syria and fighting in iraq. according to all of the experts, this is going to take years. this is through the end of this term. >> this is not iraq. this is not afghanistan. we are not putting troops on the ground. the president of the united states is responsible for the safety and security of the american people. when threats are opposed to concern interest he has a responsibility to act. that's what he has done here. this is about we are taking air strikes that are targeted and other components of the effort that will continue to be under way. counter financing and working to crack down on foreign fighters and individuals who return to the united states or any western country. these are efforts that will
9:19 am
degrade. this is not iraq and not afghanistan. this is a very different approach we are taking. >> and iran. the secretary will be meeting with the iranian counterpart. the talks this week, iran's president said are critical on the possibility of achieving a nuclear deadline and self imposed deadline of all parties november. this is what the president had to say today. >> as the beginning of the collaboration aimed at promoting security. >> of course embedded in that is peaceful yet to establish. is he really putting us on the spot by promising the world.
9:20 am
if the agreement doesn't come through, they have not delivered on all of the verifications and delivered to the satisfaction, it puts us on the spot and it will be hard to hold the coalition together. >> there is a long road ahead and gaps that remain. october and november will be key periods of time and the secretary will have another meeting with the foreign minster and our teams have been talking and the international community is united in the belief that iran cannot acquire a nuclear weapon and there is so much support for the effort. that's our focus now. there is more work to be done and we are hopeful about what we can achieve. >> any reaction to the speech today? >> i think this is the issue that is central to our discussions with the iranians. it's what we are focused on behind the scenes.
9:21 am
we are not going to get ahead in that relationship. we have concerns about human rights and state sponsoring of terrorism. if we can work with them and the p 5 plus 1 to prevent iran from acquiring the nuclear weapon, that will be a great success for the world. >> something you have to see to

9:23 am
new business owner, it would be one thing i've learned is my philosophy is real simple american express open forum is an on-line community, that helps our members connect and share ideas to make smart business decisions. if you mess up, fess up. be your partners best partner. we built it for our members, but it's open for everyone. there's not one way to do something. no details too small. american express open forum. this is what membership is. this is what membership does. that's the way i look at life. looking for something better. especially now that i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. i was taking warfarin, but wondered if i kept digging, could i come up with something better. my doctor told me about eliquis... for three important reasons. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin.
9:24 am
and three, unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. those three important reasons are why eliquis is a better find for me. ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you. i have $40,ney do you have in your pocket right now? $21. could something that small make an impact on something as big as your retirement? i don't think so. well if you start putting that towards your retirement every week and let it grow over time, for twenty to thirty years, that retirement challenge
9:25 am
might not seem so big after all. ♪ ugh. heartburn. did someone say burn? try alka seltzer reliefchews. they work just as fast and taste better than tums smoothies assorted fruit. mmm. amazing. yeah, i get that a lot. alka seltzer heartburn reliefchews. enjoy the relief. >> they sent them back to d.c. for all of us. >> the mama grizzly out of hish nation to save a three-term republican senator, pat roberts and his failing campaign. "the washington post," chris, alyssa and jonathan cape hart,
9:26 am
all msnbc contributors. live in independence, kansas. first to you, casey. sarah palin, is that going to do it for pat roberts? >> well, andrea, she is one on a long list of republicans that senator pat robbers is bringing in to save himself as we head towards election day. he was campaigning earlier this week with senator bob dole who had a strikingly different message than palin. he criticized the senator for shutting down the government and said it led to governors and palin praised roberts for standing with cruz in the government shut down fight and that he was fighting obamacare. i asked robert whose side he was on having appeared with both of the surrogates, he answered both. at this point there is a little bit of a confused message out of the roberts campaign. he is trying to attack to the
9:27 am
right and voters are looking for those who get things done. it's difficult for him to navigate explaining that message of compromise. >> jonathan cape hart, how important is the residency issue? >> it seems to be very, very important. a lot of people say they don't even remember seeing him in the state. he's not well-known around the state as you would think someone would be. >> maybe with friends where he has a lounge chair and there was controversy over that. >> there is a lot of controversy about the senator and his residency. he has been in the senate for three decades and the fact that he is fighting a residency issue is a problem. to jump on something that casey just said in terms of confused messaging, it seems like confused tactics. remember last i heard, sarah palin was someone who was against the establishment. against washington.
9:28 am
senator roberts has been in the senate for three decades. he is the establishment. what are the tactics and what are the message that is the roberts campaign is trying to accepted and to me, it's a sign of desperation. >> he's a former senate intelligence chair. he has been in power for all of these decades as jonathan points out. which way did the voters go. did they accept the fact that these different surrogates are sending different messages? >> to be honest, i love to think voters were that engaged. there is bob dole. i'm not convinced that they are analyzing each of the messages. pat roberts is in panic mote. not complicated. he was not paying much attention after he won the primary. now he's in a race where we are six weeks away from an election and they are not sure they can fix it in time. this is a throw everything you
9:29 am
have against the wall and bob dole said he's my kind of republican. they will bring anyone and everyone in. if there was a strategy in place and a republican senator in kansas in a mid-term election, we wouldn't be talking about it. >> one other quick thing. his opponent still has to establish himself and a lot of controversy about that. i wanted to ask you about the clinton global initiative and the bathroom escorts and the way the media retreated. they blogged about the fact that they had escorts who were kept in the basement and they were not allowed to mix and mingle with the player who is spent $20,000 to become members and do
9:30 am
tremendously wonderful work. it's unchallenges as well as some would say political stuff that goes on in the mess. the treatment of the press, do they have to figure out someone escorting you to the bathroom and stand outside the stall and. >> came amy didn't cast hers as how everyone was being treated. the clinton global initiative does have strong security for everyone and that said, i do think it is not a big secret that the clintons tonight -- particularly hillary clinton doesn't deal warmly about the political press.
9:31 am
bill clinton talked about this, his feelings that the political press missed the boat and they are narrative driven and the folks are then getting the story. the thing i wonder about, that clearly hurt her campaign in 2008. ral adverse aerial with the media. hillary clinton likes the press as little or less than six years ago. that is how the campaign acts is how the candidate wants them to act at some level. it's something that at least you have to pay attention to if not worry about. >> thank you so much. chris ask casey and jonathan cape hart and weather-permitting, tonight will be the last home game for derek jeter. future hall of famer. he spoke with nbc's brian williams about his retirement.
9:32 am
>> life began anew for you? >> first and foremost, i want to rest. i don't want to have a schedule. i have been doing this professionally for 23 years and playing baseball since i was 4 or 5. i haven't had much time off. i'm not complaining, but i'm looking forward to having time off. >> you can see more of brian's exclusive interview with derek jeed jeter on nightly news. ter . fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. everybody knows that parker.

it's unacceptable and it's shameful. >> well, that was just one of the many exchanges. and he had a relationship with the members of congress. it was part of the political drama here in washington. because of his proposals for trying to try the detainees on u.s. soil. >> he had a tenure who has been with obama for the entire time. there have been rocky moments politically for eric holder. the record has been mixed in terms of his relationship with congress and the things he was proposing and advocating if are and some of the things he did get done and pursued. >> the president will not be announcing a successor. this is president obama back in
