liberal for me but maybe so, every day, somebody i can deal with that among her fellow 2020 candidates we put our latest technology makes me feel comfortable, and when it comes to enthusiasm and unrivaled network to work. maybe i'm somebody who's not among democratic primary voters. even that comfortable with the steve, there is a ton in there, the united states postal service makes more president's disruption even though i like his issues and e-commerce deliveries to homes obviously. let's start with the top line than anyone else in the country. and that is elizabeth warren biden's a comfortable place to go that's why republicans fear him moving up right behind joe the most, and so i think that's biden, although they are growing e-commerce deliveries to homes "have you lost weight?" the question breath warren has actually at the same right of course i have- he is up 6 and she is up 5. ever since i started renting from national. to answer. i will say this, and this is really important >> why is warren up? i think two things you see because national lets me lose the wait at the counter... when you talk to elizabeth warren's supporters, even though happening in that poll they're not those kind of we have talked about warren and ...and choose any car in the aisle. voters, at least not yet, they and i don't wait when i return, thanks to drop & go. sanders battling for second and really believe in her they have similar messages and electability, and it's a very there is pretty significant at national, i can lose the wait...and keep it off. dangerous thing when you have a differences in their bases but i looking good, patrick. candidate whose voters really think one thing you're seeing in believe that that candidate can the poll is the areas there has been overlap in warren and i know. win. we saw that with president trump, and it was a real killer sander supporting right now at (vo) go national. go like a pro. least in this poll, warren starting to get the better of for him in 2016. >> newscast the problit's a sim sander that is one thing to look at - [woman] with my shark, i deep clean messes like this, she's going to continue along going forward is their saying to 160 million people you this, and even this. can't choose your insurance, separation but i don't have to clean this, she's going to lose. is warren attaining separation she's going to lose. because the self-cleaning brush roll removes hair while i clean. we got to grow up a little bit - [announcer] shark, the vacuum that deep cleans from sanders around here. her policies, she maybe is just kamala harris to 5% and i think now cleans itself. playing a game and once she gets the general election

3:19 am
president ever asking me to get women to elizabeth warren which contradiction how do you maintain the good of tribalism involved with jeff sessions or is helpful the department of justice in any way, shape, or form ever. next taking away the bernie and overcome the negative of it sanders campaign she just won a working family the size of the united states. >> i'll let you take the next >> did you hear that, sir? party endorsement this week and that was you saying on msnbc you something bernie sanders locked question, ker. down in 2016 and now elizabeth tribalism as you saw the former don't ever remember the warren has it and strong president ever asking you to get endorsement of working class secretary of defense jim mattis involved with jeff sessions or people and they work for you across the country the department of justice in an? talking about it, hard not to she is doing well. if they can convince people she avoid that sort of the scenario, is electable and convince people the example he was putting out there is exactly the way his >> i heard that. and recent polls an article said >> and that was not true, was if you take electability out of it former boss acts every day. >> i have no obligation to be it elizabeth warren and joe >> yeah. honest to the media because biden are almost tied and if she he seems to -- the president they're just as dishonest as can make this argument thrives on this type of us nationally this is a two-person anybody else. >> so you're admitting, sir, you against them sort of way of race. >> here is a number the candidates will like speaking in a way that really were not being truthful in that clip, correct? 9% of democratic voters have fuels that type of tribalism >> my interview with ari medi l made up their mind that is good i thought that it was striking donnie deutsche, the mean even at his rally in new mexico, question you see elizabeth warren 1:00 that was supposed to be a pitch medical -- a.m., 12:30 a.m. taking selfies >> about the special counsel's investigation? >> i don't recall that in a line of 20,000 people to hispanic voter. he talked in terms of who are particular day and my mind-set every last person her arm is in you with are you with the country or are at the time so i couldn't answer the air and fit and happy and that. >> the beat with ari melber totally loving it. you with hispanics biden you don't see that everything is an us versus them getting some air play inside is there a concern at this point sort of mentality even when congress yesterday that people are looking at or is you're talking about people he'll be with us coming up at this just in the media the top of the hour. you're allegedly trying to pitch
3:20 am
there's a ton to get through >> line up with the enthusiasm to tribalism isn't new. number which is important number it's certainly not new in po there. the nut of what we saw yesterday which goes to -- look. was corey lewandowski saying it is a two-person race. effectively, yes, the president we have to stop lumping elizabeth warren and bernie politics but added fuel through of the united states did ask me social media right now that is to go to the attorney general sander in the same place making it feel so much more jeff sessions at the time and elizabeth warren has clearly intense, so much more angry and influence in some way the established herself as the mueller report, the mueller liberal alternative and antagonistic than we have seen investigation and to change the interests to see the numbers change when the get to a binary trajectory and have a focus on in the past. >> tim your excellent book gets things that came after the 2016 place and that is simple do you go from the instability toppling too i guess the question are we as election. >> which at the time the mueller report came out, that piece of trump to something unstable divided? didn't really get as much attention, and i remember at the but interest and more proactive are we as tribal as it appears and more progressive on social media? time maybe a day or two later as it appears we are on cable saying to my editors we should or do you go from instability to news every day or is this just the most extreme really do a story on corey stability to kind of -- we finally did a separate story version of what is happening in >> right, right. >> the very thing people put the country but not to such a on corey i think we were all reading biden down about is might be the harsh extent as we see it through it we got to the don mcgahn stuff publicly very tonic. >> well, i think we have to be there were so many shocking >> comfort level. >> people are looking for. careful to not use tribal as a pieces in that volume two that that is going to be -- i think this corey lewandowski piece got we will see that very quickly bad word is half of the point of when it gets counsel to two and lost that's really one of the it's a real gut thing. sebastian's book and my book is clearest moments that could be we are tribal by nature, but the argued as obstruction because question is what is the nature of those tribes? the president was actually do i want one side to the other man is a political animal and we side or in the middle and regroup? >> let me ask you about the cam are supposed to belong to thing. directing lun dough kewandowski ma la harris question. there is always going to be an jeff sessions and publicly clear us versus them a candidate who excited a lot of if the us is 47% of the entire people when she announced and
3:21 am
him. lewandowski keeps citing executive privilege here and did very well in the first keeps bringing up the fact that u.s. electorate against the debate and spike in the polls. other 47%, then it's going to be the white house has asked him how do you explain the fall to not to answer questions. i cannot find a lawyer either 5% >> i think think back to the first debate and what worked for really heighten the animosity friendly to the president or her there. and nobody can really accomplish unfriendly to the president who that was a pretty clearly anything on that massive level says there's any grounds for the white house to be making this we are supposed to try to shape premeditated, you know, the world around us and what rehearsed moment and you think ex executi about her training as ulpull ofd tribes enable us to do executive privilege claim. when you look at social media executive privilege protects the and if the only way you participate in politics is executi executive branch through twitter, flame wars and what you see on either fox or once information leaves the executive branch the white house or justice department, so to msnbc, then that is when it corey lewandowski, then the really goes head-to-head executive privilege claim is gone but as you're suggesting, if you it has now left the executive get down to a local level to branch you can't bring it back in and more human level tribes like a cite executive privilege swim club, like a church there's no grounds for that. so essentially he is not being truthful to congress that could be seen as congregation when you have obstruction by the white house conflicts it's more likely to be instructing him not to answer resolved in a peaceful way these questions. because these are people you they are now trying to obstruct live with. the house investigation so a everything is relational and more long term than in a number of pieces here that i think even though this seemed massive, you know, millions like a circus, if people were to versus millions tribal war fare. >> you know, sebastian, tim is get back and get into the nuts of it, you still see that absolutely correct we are and always have been a
3:22 am
obstruction of justice case being built. nation of tribes, different >> it was a circus, throughout the day he was a mini trump. tribes, different geographies. but, somehow -- i don't know when, i don't know that anybody you can speak to corey knows when -- over the last 20 lewandowski in real life and often you can see someone who or 25 years perhaps, something doesn't seem like trump. has happened to the definition in front of the cameras he was playing for an audience of one of tribe and there has been an he was rude. incitement by some public people he was insolent. and public institutions to he was stone walling and ultimately being revealed to be inflame specific tribes against one another and i don't know what you do about that. >> yeah, i think about it like a liar after showing he was on a tv show, and he chose to lie to this several hundred firemen and the american people. that's what we discovered policemen died into the twin yesterday, it was a circus, but we learned something about corey towers to save people didn't personally know because they saw lewandowski and his ability to those people as part of our lie to the american public for the president of the united states my question to you is at one community worth risking their lives for. point since this is a reality that is tribes show and since that's the game in a negative aspect what some politicians have done and that the trump republicans are decided certain secretaries of the electorate are the enemy playing, why wouldn't oversight, why wouldn't any of these not people with a different committees file -- charge him opinion but they are actually enemies of the state with contempt? when you advance the tribal these levers are there rhetoric to that level you why not force some answers from
3:23 am
some of these people who refuse jeopardize the nation. it's almost a national security to give them and are using quite issue. this country is too powerful for frankly, fake reasons not to another country to defeat. give them? the only country that can defeat >> this was what was so america is america and it will frustrating to me watching the be with word, not bullets, but hearing unfold yesterday as someone who used to spend with word like that. years of my life helping >> yeah. choreograph hearings like this, >> tim, you know, in terms of i can tell you back in the r.n. combating the issue, it's a little difficult right now when you look at, for example, one days -- republican days if we had thing that happened in had a witness who was this washington yesterday hostile, who was down right let's take the hearings with corey lewandowski. disrespectful, we would have held him in contempt of five i mean, there was so much going minutes of that proceeding. on there that plays into this >> in realtime. topic. >> no. exactly right. >> i really don't understand what house democrats are doing at this point. we're nine months into this new y to the majority it seems to me they are caught president, his only job up offguard when they have a there. and then impeachment proceedings hostile witness from the trump administration who's unwilling to be cooperative to their whole world is about democrats trying to make sure that they investigation. hang on to the loyalty of their thai they're sitting up there own thing. perplexed that the guy's not but this is exactly where -- answering their questions. we know about the trump people, they lie, whether you're the again, the problem isn't that white house press secretary, whether you're kellyanne conway, washington should behave better. it's that washington should they lie so the idea that somehow the matter less.
3:24 am
that in our tribes, where we biggest revelation coming out of know the other people, if -- or this hearing is that corey lewandowski went on msnbc and if it's rooting for our high lied, if that's the biggest school against, you know, revelation this hearing was a complete failure because their job was to try to get new pellham against east chester a tribalism that can resolve information to bring to life the peacefully and something we are mueller report, and they weren't engaged on a human level and no able to do that because they other people if the only way you engage in were unprepared for the level of politic is trying to push the hostility that they're getting from corey i don't know why they were unprepared for that. needle on national politics it >> david druker final word, what will be so much more combative are we missing here? because so much more at stake and we have so much less >> i don't think we're missing anything i think this is the problem with ability. so the problem, again, isn't members of the house of representatives conducting these necessarily that washington doesn't play nice enough sort of hearings they're never as prepared as it's how washington matters too u.s. senators. i'm not sure why that is much and people need to have there's a lot of grand standing. more things closer to themselves we heard a lot of one liners, on a human level where they can and i think there is always a exercise that political muscle. lack -- we've seen this with republicans under the obama >> sebastian, your book talks administration and now democrats under trump, a lack of strategic about veterans of war who have come back and assimilate or do focus in going into these not and why they do or don't hearings knowing what it is you want to find, knowing what it is i want to ask you about there is to find, so when the afghanistan. you mentioned 9/11 subject of the haearing rejects we just passed the 18-year the line of inquiry you already anniversary. you recorded that war so closely
3:25 am
know where you're going and you and it was about your reporting can at least present the picture and your documentary of competence and success. where are we it's possible democrats are it's a question we could have asked for 18 straight years. laying the foundation for future hearings in a way that will help what is the objective and what better make their case is the most likely outcome here but all it was yesterday is as we approach 20 years since really performance art by corey the beginning that have war? lewandowski and it made >> boy, you're asking me to predict the future of democrats look like they didn't afghanistan, a tough one i mean, our concern is that they really come up with that much. that impacts public opinion and the problem they're having with afghanistan doesn't become a host country to al qaeda again so they can attack us. impeachment is not neszcessaril that is our national concern it's not justified, you do not second to that, i think it's have enough political support in just basically a human interest the country to go forward with this and come out successfully of not having afghanistan fall on the other side, especially into chaos and where, you know, with an election that is just barely a little more than a year hundreds of thousands of people away. >> to your point about an audience of one, corey got the and their lives are at jeopardy. only think he wanted yesterday, obviously, war is not -- fighting the taliban is not an approving tweet from the going to work. so there is going to be some of president. >> tweeting something about his political accommodation. maybe it won't happen undtrump upcoming senate campaign what a joke. >> thank you very much at some point there is an agreement to disagree, but stop and still ahead on "morning joe." fighting i don't know when that will >> i think the public has a kind of a primitive image of these come a lot of things at play right
3:26 am

3:44 am
presidential candidate or a vptd care act, tried to repeal the who's running for president to affordable care act. and then they failed to do it. say i'm offering a third term, and for one blessed week, whether it was george bush for ronald reagan, al gore for bill democrats were on offense on health care, and then bernie clinton and hillary clinton in a way for barack obama, and so you introduced medicare for all, six know, i think there is precedent candidates got on, including for that, and i think the elizabeth on that bill, and question is whether that's we've been playing defense ever since. donald trump is the first adequate to satisfy the base president in american history to i think the biden calculation is in part that trump has been so actually take insurance away from millions of americans radical that people perhaps don't want quite as much we should make it very clear radical. i'd say the other thing is when that democrats are actually for you look at the ideas of a senator warren or a senator universal coverage he's taking their health sanders without passing judgment insurance away and i think medicare for all, on what's right or wrong, on a unfortunately, muddies that message because it does make historical squcale they would ph the envelope pretty far out there. illegal insurance for 180 i think the question is whether million americans. i mean, that's true. that is too far even for most and that's not a republican democrats and that's the biden talking point, by the way. that's bernie's talking point. calculation. >> kurt bardella. >> senator bennet, there's a >> jacob, you know, we haven't book out currently, and it really seen this conflict coming includes an allegation that to a head yet in terms of how justice kavanaugh was alleged to the other main candidates, bernie sanders, elizabeth warren have conducted or behaved in a are positioning themselves to lewd and perverted way when he

juxtapose with biden was 18 or 19 years of age. as we see biden try to make this and as soon as the excerpts were released, several of your tap dance and the decisions he's colleagues running for the making is how he spends his presidency of the united states indicated that they wanted to time this week he's instead going to impeach him. be going to illinois to do a big i'm wondering, what's your fundraiser rather than attitude toward their desire to participate in a climate forum impeach him and what do you here in d.c. that msnbc is going think the average voter thinks of another impeachment to be sponsoring, do you expect >> i think the average voter is thinking about the fact that that sanders and warren are they can't afford some going to highlight that, biden's combination of housing, health going to have it both wasd and care, college, and early childhood education. that's not going to work. i think that's what they're thinking about, and i think >> we haven't seen direct that's what we need to be focused on we've had an economy that for 40 engagement you saw it flare-up at last week's debate on fiscal policy years -- you know, all the benefit of the growth has gone and spending where the question to the wealthiest people in this was put directly to biden as to country, and we've got an whether he thought his main education system that's rivals were too liberal. reinforcing our economic he didn't answer it directly but inequality that is what people are focused went on to attack their spending on, and in iowa, in new ways and contrast his focus and hampshire and south carolina, what they're trying to figure he says more on things should be out is who among us is the best paid for, so far elizabeth warren seems to have largely positioned to beat donald trump, avoided taking on biden. and i think that's the right question for them to be asking because as long as we have this bernie sanders, at least his
3:46 am
campaign less so his campaign has been explicit circus in the white house, none of the issues that we need to about going after biden and some of his actions including his contend with as americans are going to be addressed or solved, meetings with -- his holding whether it's the economic issues fundraise or the climate issues or the gun fundraisers. as this field narrows and i think you were talking about that a little bit in the earlier issues that mitch mcconnell won't even let us have a vote on segment, the contrast and the conflict is going to get a lot the floor to address >> i wanted to ask you about the sharper. >> "the wall street journal"'s jake schlesinger, thank you so gun issue. much for being on the show this the republicans and democrats need to come together to get morning. >> my pleasure. something through the senate mitch mcconnell says the senate is in a holding pattern if republicans and the president come up with a piece of on gun legislation, and democrats are just not having legislation that does not go as far as democrats would like it to go -- let's say it's maybe a it we'll show you some of what they bit more watered-down version of had to say to the majority leader, and the republican party last night "morning joe" is back in a moment background checks, it's the toomey manchin bill versus the house bill that democrats have -- would you be willing to go along with passing some type of gun legislation, even if it doesn't go as far as you would like and do you think other democrats should do the same >> you know, it's not about what i would like almost 90% of the american people support background checks the background checks that the house passed, they're the same

what he thinks would make some progress and he would sign, and until we get that kind of guidance, we're in a holding pattern so to speak. >> a holding pattern that was majority leader mitch mcconnell yesterday on waiting for the president before taking any action on gun legislation. dozens of senate democrats took to the floor last night to respond. >> the last i checked the constitution, it's our responsibility here in the senate and house to act, not to hide behind the skirts of the president, and the president we know has been spineless. >> it's wild to me how the republican leadership is so eager to advertise that the senate will do nothing unless president trump gives it permission. >> we all have a responsibility to do the right thing and stand up to the nra and stand up to the greed and corruption that is in this country today that makes

3:53 am
immediate aftermatt president will come out and say we're look -- he gets a call from the nra, he backs away from it this was during the august rece recess, so it was sort of evaporated to some extent. you get back to washington and mitch mcconnell says we don't do anything that the president doesn't tell us to do. >> congress takes its instructions from the white house, according to mitch mcconnell on this. to mcconnell's point, donald trump is the most popular person in the republican party. many of the members feel like if he can get behind something he will give them covern election that is genuinely important that the president comes out and backs something to give the republicans cover. of course, yes, the nra has conditioned their members and this pro-second amendment crowd that any gun regulation is bad it's a slippery slope that's going to lead to all sorts of, you know, eventually gun confiscation things at the white house are
3:54 am
still going on and at a big pace, and there was a definite shift in august after the el paso and the ohio shootings. that was a definite shift in the white house. there is a team that meets, i believe, almost every morning to discuss this issue the attorney general was on the hill with the white house head of legislative affairs yesterday. he met with senator ted cruz, i believe some other members as well still trying to thread this needle, though, and they need bipartisan support to get something passed they need to get 60 votes in the senate to avoid a filibuster, so they have to get democrats and republicans on board that's what they're trying to come out with. that is obviously incredibly difficult as every president for the past 20 years, even longer has tried to figure out ways we can get gun legislation. >> are they talking about background checks or what are they discussing as something that might be attainable as we said a thousand times a majority of republicans and gun owners are for background checks. >> background checks are still
3:55 am
on the table, and i think republicans and democrats both want to see the background checks you get into things like recordkeeping and republicans conservatives concerned that paper records being kept, a permanent record could lead to a gun registry you get into topics like this that even republicans would like to see background checks it's the process. >> when i see that tape of mcconnell, a message to democrats, run against trump, mcconnell. he's the most unappealing politician i've ever seen in my life you don't want four more years of trump and mcconnell that's his running mate. >> kurt, your thoughts, kurt bardel bardella >> this is one of the few areas where we actually have a rather large consensus between republicans, democrats and the american people i'm talking about here who want aggressive reform, who are tired of waking up to headlines of their kids being shot at their schools, their sons and daughters being shot at that nightclub, going to country concerts, going through mass shootings, and i just don't understand why policymakers are

so behind the ball here. at the end of the day, if they keep doing nothing and these shootings keep happening they're going to pay a political price with their jobs. the american people are already there, they've long since been there. as long as mitch mcconnell keeps holding this up in the senate there's going to be huge pressure on the members going up for re-election, and i think they're going to pay a large political price for doing nothing. >> kurt bardella thank you so much for being on this morning. coming up, there's a lot to discuss in our latest nbc news wall street journal poll as elizabeth warren pulls away from bernie sanders and inches closer to the front runner, joe biden former senator claire mccaskill joins the conversation for that, and msnbc's ari melber joins he made a surprise peernappearaa yesterday's impeachment hearing in the house we'll be right back. every day, visionaries are creating the future.

with feedback to help you drive safer. giving you the power to actually lower your cost. unfortunately, it can't do anything about that. now that you know the truth... are you in good hands? are you refusing to answer mr. lewandowski? >> as i explained in a letter dated to the white house -- to my attorney. >> mr. lewandowski -- >> mr. lewandowski's conversation with the president and with senior advisers to the president protected from disclosure. >> can we stop the clock again for this obstruction of behavior. >> i not disclose the discussion with the president, the white house has directed i not disclose the discussion with the president. >> i can read you the exact statement again. the white house has directed i not disclose the discussion with the president.
4:01 am
i can't discuss a private conversation with the president. the white house has directed me i not disclose the substance of any discussions with the president. again, at the advice of white house counsel i can't answer questions that would be privileged and i respect that privilege. >> that was pretty much what house judiciary committee democrats got from former trump campaign manager corey lewandowski in yesterday's impeachment hearing. welcome back to "morning joe." we have branding and marketing expert donny deutsch, host of "the beat on msnbc, ari melber is with us, politics and journali journalism professor at morgan state university, and an msnbc political contributor jason johnson, and former u.s. senator now an nbc news and msnbc political analyst claire mccaskill.
4:02 am
also with us jim messina he served as white house deputy chief of staff to president obama and ran his 2012 re-election campaign great to have you all on board this hour. we have some very interesting 2020 poll numbers to get to in just a moment. but we will start with yesterday's hearing, which lasted for more than five hours. it was contentious as democrats struggled to get more information on a key part of the mueller report that claims in a june 2017 meeting in the oval office, the president told lewandowski to instruct then attorney general jeff sessions to announce publicly that the president had done nothing wrong and the special counsel investigation was unfair since we have ari here, let's play this key exchange between corey lewandowski and house judiciary counsel barry burke. >> my question to you, sir, is on national television did you lie about your relationship with
4:03 am
the special counsel and whether they sought your interview >> i don't know. >> prior to the mueller report being published in redacted form, did you ever misrepresent what you did on behalf of the president? >> i can't think of an instance where that would have occurred. >> let me show you an interview that you did on may 14th, 2019. >> i don't ever remember the president ever asking me to get involved with jeff sessions or the department of justice in any way, shape, or form ever. >> did you hear that, sir? that was you saying on msnbc you don't ever remember the president ever asking you to get involved with jeff sessions or the department of justice in any way, shape, or form. that wasn't true, was it, sir? >> i heard that. >> and that was not true, was it >> i have no obligation to be honest to the media because they're just as dishonest as
4:04 am
anybody else. >> so you're admitting, sir, you were not being truthful in that clip, correct? >> my interview with ari melber? >> yes. >> can be interpreted any way you like. >> why did you lie on national television about the president giving you a message >> i don't recall that particular day and my mind-set at the time. >> ari, i can only think of wun way to interpret that, especially after seeing what happened in washington yesterday. he lied, and he was caught in his tracks you could see actually his momentum completely fall flat when they played that tape, and then he couldn't get out of it a lot of people, ari say democrats didn't get anything. what did they show i feel like they showed a lot because nancy pelosi says this is about moving public opinion everybody's in the corner they're in we want to show the public what we believe happened, and we want to expose it and call it out his attitude, his behavior, his flipness towards the process, his rudeness
4:05 am
he didn't take anything seriously and ultimately it was proven he lied before a national audience on your show. isn't that part of the process here as we take certain steps towards impeachment, if that's what you're going for? >> i think that's absolutely part of the process, mika. a lot oaf what we saw yesterday is if you have nothing to hide, why are you hiding if you didn't do anything wrong, why are you lying? if the story you have to tell about your own action or how the trump white house works is positive, why won't you tell it. we're dealing with someone let's not forget, the president operates like a chief content operator he wants to tweet, he wants to talk, thoepts tehe wants to tell why does corey lewandowski under oath suddenly go quiet as for the moment you just showed, that's what it looks like when someone is cross examined by a skilled lawyer mr. burke, and that's what it looks like when someone corey lewandowski admits under oath they were lying, and to make it about the press is, of course, a side note and a trick. forget corey lewandowski who as i've mentioned before i had on
4:06 am
the show and put the questions to him, and i'd love to have him back on and interview him again. forget the press and him and me. mr. lewandowski was speaking on television to his own supporters, to the maga crowd, to the public, to america, and he was saying he didn't remember he claimed this never occurred, that there was any attempt by the president to get him to k e kneecap the probe to jeff sessions why did corey lewandowski not even want to tell his own supporters the truth o'about that at the end of the day that incident looks very bad. >> shannon brought this up in the last segment, this hocus pocus about executive privilege. her point is that is within kind of the white house once you go outside of it, there's no legal expert that stands behind that so how come the democrats don't use that what lever can they use as an automatic to just take that little stupid piece of paper away >> you don't need to be an expert to know white house privilege applies more to people at the white house than everyone
4:07 am
else, just like attorney/client privilege. the claim works better if you invoke it with your attorney than your waiter no matter how much you trust your waiter >> what do they do about it? >> the congress has to decide on the democratic side whether they want to hold him in contempt. >> what's the decision >> no-brainer. >> go ahead, willie. >> well, i mean, when you look at the core issue that came up when they played your clip, it is whether or not corey lewandowski took this directive from the president of the united states to the attorney general lewandowski effectively said i took the meeting i had a meeting with the president of the united states, so he was, in fact, directing corey lewandowski to do this he said, but he instead went on vacation the mueller report says, in fact, that corey lewandowski tried to set up a meeting with the attorney general the attorney general backed out of the meeting was that -- even though the meeting didn't take place, is not the admission that the president of the united states directed corey lewandowski to somehow influence the special counsel's investigation an admission of obstruction at some point? >> it's an admission
4:08 am
the way the lawyers would say, it's an admission of an element of obstruction the element of obstruction goes to the president that's why corey lewandowski was in such a pickle yesterday on the one hand, in fairness to him, and we've reported this before, the way he conducted himself may have been dishonest and according to many law enforcement officials dishonorable, but bob mueller's investigators never found that mr. lewandowski came close to committing a felony. they didn't charge him with that let alone convict him of that. what they found was he was pulled into basically -- if you want to put a fine point on it -- attempted felonies by the sitting president, and he actually at times are tried to get out from under that. that's why we're talking about the safe, on my show he talked about how he didn't remember this he was on his way to dunkin' donuts all these details. >> vacation. >> it all amounts to corey lewandowski saying i know i was really near the bad thing. i actually didn't help do it i kind of walked away from it. mueller's investigators found that credible with regard to
4:09 am
lewandowski, but bad for the president. that's why they use the term substantial evidence of crime by the president in the report. >> there's another core issue here i would submit, and it is this yesterday's appearance corey lewandowski appearance could have been anyone it was a total clown show. i mean, you lose the entire country when you put something like that on television with rare exception, barry burke, a skilled prosecutor asking questions of a defendant why they allow various members of congress their five minutes of time on television to ask inane and ludicrous leading questions of corey lewandowski or anyone else and not stick, not just in that hearing, but other contentious hearings with a skilled, knowledgeable prosecutor you know this. you've seen trials where prosecutors skilled at cross
4:10 am
examination can extract almost anything from a defendant on the witness stand. why they don't do that is beyond me >> yeah, i mean, i think you make a great point because this is one of those things where the people at this table, the people watching, we follow this up pretty closely we're talking about what the first dmkts did and the first wave, when they're fighting over lewandowski, i don't have the report, then the second wave, we're talking about the burke questioning. the overall take away for the american public, i think, was certainly a mixed decision yesterday, and as the democrats move forward getting less time with politicians, sort of getting their five minutes and more time of serious questioning earlier in the hearing might have been to their benefit. >> the one element of corey lewandowski transit during the request from the president to corey to obstruct justice, lets be frank, was go down and see jeff sessions and tell him to end this mueller investigation corey lewandowski was skillful enough to know that if he had
4:11 am
gone to justice and in the building he would have had to sign in. there would have been a video record of him being there. there would have been a paper record and he would have been ensnared in the thing. a skilled prosecutor could have gotten that out of him. >> wow, i wonder if we had a skilled knowledgeable prosecutor that we could talk to. claire, i wanted to actually get to you but the nbc wall street journal polls, but any thoughts about corey's performance yesterday? >> yeah, listen, first of all, it's unrealistic that the people in congress are not going to try to grab the microphone in a congressional hearing. i get the point you're making about skilled prosecutors and believe me, i've sat through long hearings where i wanted to muzzle some of my colleagues, but that's just not realistic. secondly, corey lewandowski did exactly what he wanted to do yesterday. he had an audience of one. >> right >> he was talking directly to donald trump and what he was trying to do is become donald trump's candidate for the u.s. senate in new hampshire. he needs donald trump in order to have any chance to take that
4:12 am
republican nomination in new hampshire, so all of this yesterday was all about him proving to donald trump that he can be just as defiant, just as insulting, just as childish and, frankly, just as good of a liar as the president. >> so why not charge him with contempt what are the -- what more would it take at this point? i mean, don't the democrats need to go a step further to get some information? >> well, they are, and ari can speak to this, too they are in the middle of a lot of legal fights right now. >> right >> because what this white house has done is unprecedented. they have basically shut down the side of congress by refusing -- you know, this absolutely manipulation of executive privilege, the refusal to present documents to congress so they're fighting in the courts, but the problem is that's not easy to cover in a dramatic day by day fashion. so it gets lost in the public that there is this legal battle
4:13 am
going on, but eventually these fights are going to come to a head, and we're going to make precedent as to whether or not this white house is going to be a new normal in terms of giving the stiff arm to congress. >> there you go. let's turn now to the new nbc news wall street journal poll which shows elizabeth warren inching closer to joe biden. the former vice president sits at 31%, up five points since july warren is only six pounts behind at 25% vermont senator bernie sanders is at a distant third with 14% senator kamala harris has fallen eight points since july. she sits in fifth place with 5%. biden reaches almost 50% of support among black voters while 28% of white voters back warren's run and warren holds a ten-point advantage among her fellow 2020 candidates when it comes to enthusiasm among democratic primary voters i want to bring in jim messina and then go back to claire
4:14 am
jim, is it a two-person race at this point is this elizabeth warren and joe biden? >> no, not yet if you look at the states, iowa, new hampshire, you still see the top three candidates, biden, bernie and elizabeth all kind of clustered together the good thing is you and i have been talking since the spring, saying democrats need consolidation in the race. that's exactly what we're geg getting. a top tier of three candidates who command the national polls and the state polls and candidates like kamala and mayor pete who had good springs have sort of receded back into a second tier, and so you're really seeing this consolidation of the race. i think you'll see more candidates get out as the fall continues. >> claire mccaskill, talk to me about elizabeth warren and joe biden. i'm seeing some clear differences. elizabeth warren has some huge hurdles in terms of comfort level with certain voters that joe biden holds onto strong. at the same time, she is showing
4:15 am
an energetic, flexible, acrobatic campaign taking pictures until one in the morning in new york city, flying all over the country, on the phone all the time, constantly interacting with voters. i'm not seeing an effort to do that with biden, and i everyone see perhaps a hesitation >> i don't know about that i think what's interesting about this poll is that both of them got a bump up, and that is consolidation. for biden to go up five or six and elizabeth to go up five or six. bernie is the one that's out of the circle at this point in terms of this particular poll. make no mistake about it, bernie is not going to give up. bernie is going to stand and fight and i would predict knowing bernie like i do that he would fight all the way to the convention, so, you know, that's what's frustrating for elizabeth is she is not going near going after bernie because she is very hopeful that those votes come to
4:16 am
her eventually but others will be beginning to go after her now, and especially, i think, some of those candidates trying to get into the circle of five, and i think this fight over whether or not she can pay for what she's trying to do or whether she can even accomplish what she's promising is going to become more in focus. >> so jim, we have a new poll also out from iowa this morning that shows a dead heat between joe biden and elizabeth warren, the first votes will be cast there. joe biden's up actually eight points and that poll is with warren up about three points they're in a statistical tie in that state i'm interested to hear from you on this, a lot of people have drawn a parallel for elizabeth warren to barack obama in 2008 in terms of her lack of support in places like south carolina and how much that changed for barack obama when he won iowa in 2008 how critical is the state of iowa, not just this time but always in determining the trajectory for candidates who
4:17 am
previously may have been farther down the list? >> yeah, it's a great point. look, momentum matters, right? and you can look at this, you've got to move in iowa and new hampshire to kind of move in south carolina south carolinians are not immune to the national trends, and they're going to look at this and say who's moving in iowa, new hampshire. democratic primaries tend to be very late breaking, and that's why i think some of these national polls are less important than the poll you just showed in iowa you know, it's really a contrasting basis, right joe biden has exactly what you'd want he's the most loyal democratic primary voters, which are senior and african-americans. whereas elizabeth has younger voters, and she has incredible enthusiasm among the progressive base, and those two different bases are why you're seeing this consolidation going forward here you know, vice president biden has an additional issue. if there is -- if elizabeth could win in iowa and then go into new hampshire and win that, too, suddenly she's got real
4:18 am
momentum and got a chance to move in south carolina and move in texas and california in a way that would make being the front runner very dangerous for him. so both of them need a big night in iowa, and we're going to watch it really, really closely. that's more important than the national polls. >> we'll get to that we'll also look at this new poll right now out of arizona this morni morning, which shows joe biden narrowly ahead the former vice president leads the 2020 democrats by five points at 29% followed by senator elizabeth warren at 24%. in third place senator bernie sanders with 18% of arizona democrats' support president trump is in a statistical dead heat against warren, biden, and senator kamala harris, while he leads against sanders in the latest 2020 matchup in that state meanwhile, in the arizona senate race, former senator john mccain's seat, democrat and
4:19 am
former astronaut mark kelly and republican senator martha mcsally are now tied at 42%. mike barnicle. >> again to, to reinforce what e just heard, state polls and what happens in states are far more important at this stage of the campaign than the national stuff. but jason, with regard to bernie sanders poll standings in any state, iowa, new hampshire, i don't care, anyone who has ever covered bernie sanders or knows bernie sanders or watches bernie sanders knows that, a, he is not going away, and he is certainly not going to allow this to continue without a fight so at what point and what happens negatively or positively if he decides to go after elizabeth warren >> that's already been happening online the sanders campaign, you've had surrogates criticize the working family party's endorsement you've had many of them remind people of elizabeth warren's long and questionable relationship with native american communities in the
4:20 am
united states. here's where bernie sanders is going to have difficulty there's no conspiracy here there's no hillary clinton this year there's no candidate that's received 30 years of sexism and whose ethics and things have been questioned. at the end of the day, if bernie sanders can't start winning some of these primaries as we go into next year, he's not going to be able to claim the system is rigged if he loses to three or four people. that's the big challenge he's going to have. i don't think this year -- and we saw this in some of the angry reactions to how the democrats handled the hearing yesterday and before -- there is such a frustration amongst democratic voters at this point, you're not going to see the splits of 2016. you're not going to see the splits of 2018 people are going to rally around whoever the candidate is whether it's elizabeth warren or joe biden. >> with all due respect, though, you mentioned he's already doing that online. online is different than the sidewalks in new hampshire, and des moines, iowa, and ames, iowa that's what i'm talking about. bernie himself, not online, bernie himself taking it to elizabeth warren, what happens
4:21 am
>> well, he can't be as effective. here's the thing, i say this all the time as somebody who gets text messages from ohio and georgia and north carolina and iowa, the places that i go and spend a lot of time. we have to remember that the online universe is still where 50% of people are getting their news and information the 55-year-old mom, mother of had three in iowa and des moines she's still going on facebook and talking about things we can't act like these are separate universes bernie sanders has been known to attack everybody, but his attacks only work if a person is already fundamentally weak the reason you've seen him lose 3, 4, 5% of the vote and elizabeth warren increase her lead over him is because a lot of sanders supporters are saying look, bernie sanders i love you to death, but you have a ceiling. there's a point at which certain african-american, latino voters are not going to support you if i can get 80% of bernie sanders policies a little bit more enthusiasm and slightly more electability with elizabeth warren, that's where i'm going to go. that's what we're going to see the next time these candidates debate if he ends up going heavily
4:22 am
after elizabeth warren, it's almost an admission that it is a top two tier race and he's the guy running in a distant third. >> claire had an interesting take in the last hour about this, i want to ask you because she is your former senator colleague, kamala harris in this latest nbc news poll she's down eight points to 5% in a statistical tie with andrew yang somewhere below mayor pete buttigieg. how do you explain where she is in this race right now >> i think she has got a real challenge going forward because, you know, joe biden has really jealously guarded his dominance in the african-american vote, and kamala talk about iowa, i mean, if you really want to draw a parallel to what barack obama did, barack obama surprised black voters in iowa they could no longer say i'm not sure i don't want my heartbroken. i don't think a black man can win after he won iowa, and that's why you had such a coalesce ens around his
4:23 am
candidacy in the black community after iowa i don't -- if kamala doesn't do well in iowa, it will be hard for her in south carolina, and if she can't do well against joe biden in south carolina, that's trouble. >> and that's the iowa poll to underline claire's point, kamala harris since july is down 13 points in the state of iowa. >> all right, we're watching the numbers, claire mccaskill, jim messina, and jason johnson thank you all for being on this morning. still ahead on emotion"morng joe," gun violence, opioid, and vaping ma america is grappling with a series of health issues right now. we'll talk to one congress member on the front lines of all of this next on "morning joe." ♪ ♪ award winning interface. ♪ ♪

welcome back to "morning joe. that's a beautiful live picture of the empire state building 7:27 in the morning on the east coast. a little baseball for you, giant outfielder mike the grandson of red sox hall of famer carl stremske made his debut last night. >> gets a fastball here that he can hit. he does. high into center field, it is out of here! unbelievable number 20 here at fenway park for mike ustremsky. >> the grandson of the great yaz hits a solo home run, earns him a standing ovation from the boston crowd at the park where his grandfather called home for 23 years his 20th home run of the season and the 238th by ustremski
4:29 am
a great story, a kid from massachusetts, grew up a red sox fan, originally drafted by the red sox before he starred at vanderbilt university, and now playing for the giants. >> it's a heartwarming story, actually, tragic circumstances around his family. his dad died tragically almost inexplicably after having a hip replacement surgery. his grandfather, of course, hall of famer, a truly heartwarming story. a great call by an epic broadcaster, dwayne kuiper he crushed that pitch, a 98 miles an hour fastball the best thing about him, he said, carl said he's a nice boy. >> mm-hmm. >> joining us now member of the house oversight and intelligence committees, democratic congressman ra sha krishna mor thi of illinois, thank you very much for being on the show,
4:30 am
congressman. ari melber has the first kwer f question for you. >> you talked about how we're getting to a point where the impeachment process is necessary. when you look at corey lewandowski's performance yesterday, does that actually undercut the argument that you need to hear from a lot more witnesses before moving towards potential articles of impeachment? a lot of viewers thought, well, he's not cooperating that much how many more new facts do you learn on a day like yesterday? >> sure, i think that obviously it was a combative hearing, but i think that -- i think the investigation needs to continue, especially with regard to other important fact witnesses don mcgahn, i think, is at the top of the list. obviously that's in litigation right now before he comes before capitol hill i think the investigation needs to proceed. >> congressman, donny deutsch nice to talk to you. what's the game plan going
4:31 am
forwar forward? how do you kind of put this mosaic together so it's a very single minded thing that we'll cut through for voters >> i think that there are various lines of investigation right now. as you know i'm on the house intelligence committee, and there i think we are basicallyes other members of thengthat we learned is that mr. mueller did not really get into assessing the counter intelligence risks associated with those financial ties and really didn't get into those financial ties at all. that's potentially something that has to be surfaced and looked at very closely going forward. i think that would be very new information to decide whether or not to proceed with impeachment. >> so congressman, there are some critics who say that nothing was revealed by corey
4:32 am
lewandowski in the hearings yesterday. what do you think was accomplished yesterday in those hearings >> well, i think it's one of those things where obviously mr. lewandowski came with a game plan to not answer any questions. i think that mr. nadler is considering citing him for contempt, but that being said, i think there are a lot more witnesses that have to be talked to and more everyday to be gathered. >> willie. >> congressman, let me ask you about a different topic. you have over the course of the summer, in fact, been at the leading edge of an investigation into youth e-cigarettes and the epidemic that's now taken hold in this country. where do we stand with that? do you support, for example, the new york state ban that went into effect yesterday of flavored e-cigarettes that clearly target and market toward young kids >> yes, i do your viewers may already know this, but there's a national epidemic of youth vaping underway 25% of high schoolers are vaping, and 5% of middle
4:33 am
schoolers are vaping this is alarming my wife and i are parents of both a high schooler and a middle schooler. the reason why it's so dangerous is that even according to the current surgeon general, vaping is dangerous for the brain development of young people. now we're seeing mystery illnesses, respiratory illnesses and deaths mainly among young people throughout the country. i believe that these bans on flavored e-cigarettes both which the trump administration's proposing but also states, is really essential because those flavors are what really attract youth, and we have to make sure that they stay away from vaping. they are not for sale as far as i'm concerned with regard to the e-cigarette industry. >> and i know you've threatened, for example, executives at the company juul with a subpoena because they refused to answer your questions what would you like to ask them? >> well, we had a two-day hearing in the summer, which in
4:34 am
part was the impetus according to the trump administration for its recent proposals to regulate e-cigarettes however, following up on that hearing, we had various questiond requests for documents, and those documents have not been produced i'll just describe one category of documents that we're very interested in. it turned out during the hearing that we learned that juul actually paid various school districts to go into schools, to conduct anti-vaping seminars now, when we questioned students at those seminars about what was said, they said, for instance, that juul representatives claimed that e-cigarettes were, quote, unquote, totally safe and made other claims, which as you know, don't appear to be true. but in any case, at the same time that they're supposed to be combatting youth vaping, they're encouraging youth vaping by making those types of statements. >> it's ridiculous congressman, thank you very much >> thank you
4:35 am
>> adults -- coming from the ad business, i would never take a cigarette account, go to work every day and use their skit skills and crafts to sell a product that they know hurt children. >> is it a surprise? >> didn't they see this coming after what we went through sfwrets, these came on the market. >> how do humans get up and do that in the morning? >> are you surprised by that do you read the business pages the lust for profits >> you can work in a lot of different businesses, and i don't know a human being personally frankly that would go and work at one of these companies and put their energies and their talents, i just don't know how you live as a human being doing that it's what i do for a living, i sell this stuff to kids that's going to hurt them. >> mika, you probably feel this way. i have a 12-year-old daughter, it is incredibly frustrating with how far this culture and society has come with cigarettes and combatting cigarette use, now this has been introduced as a new option for kids to get
4:36 am
nicotine into their bodies. >> i see so much of it i have kids in college and beyond, all teens, they all have juuls, they all vape oh, it's safe. this is completely just completely delved into the population of young people they are now doing this, and now we're finding people are dying big surprise >> big shocker >> ari, the people have raised the legal question though is how can you ban, let's say the state of new york ban flavored e-cigarettes and not ban cigarettes, which are infinitely more dangerous you know what i mean, there's the question of we're going to target this but not that. >> a lot of this comes under the health rules of okay, what do we know to do the regulation and states do it sometimes differently than the feds, but we're learning as the congressman was saying that a lot of this stuff hasn't been fully tested out, when you see that with the malfunctions let alone how the normal flavored ones are working. >> before you tease out, i think for every congressional hearing going forward they should show a
4:37 am
clip of ari melber even if it has not to do with what's going on. >> just think about it, you could be talking to a rapper, it's just a little bit of a break in terms of five hours. >> one of those words, like you, bill kristol and fat joe >> at least in the lawyer section. >> you get people to come on your show and lie like a rug we'll be watching "the beat" to see that coming up on "morning joe." >> there's been a special responsibility for female journalists and reporters to talk about how public policy affects women, how women in public office behave, how women voters are different from men voters that's been something i've done throughout my career i'd like to be remembered as a mother and a wife and friend of people that i love very, very much

roberts passed away yesterday due to complications from breast cancer she was one of the first trail
4:42 am
blazing female reporters to cover the highest levels of u.s. government in addition to her abc news career, roberts was among the first female reporters at national public radio often called one of the founding mothers of npr even with her busy life in front of the camera, roberts found time to be a prolific author writing books on the role of women in u.s. history. we were blessed to have her on "morning joe" throughout the years, and here's a look at the analysis and sharp questions that she brought to the table. >> there have been incidents of white kids at basketball games holding up signs to teams which have hispanic kids on them saying we're going to build a wall to keep you out are you proud of that? is that something you've done in american political and social discourse that you're proud of >> well, i think your question's a very nasty question, and i'm not proud of it because i didn't
4:43 am
even hear of it, okay, and i certainly do not like it at all when i hear about it you're the first one that's told me about that. we either have a country or we don't. i talk about deporting people who are here illegally. >> what about the effect on children >> cokie, i also talk about building a wall and oftentimes i'll say there's going to be a big beautiful door in that wall and people are going to come into our country because we want people to come in -- >> but what about the children, mr. trump? what about what the children are hearing from you and how they are responding to it >> well, i think people are responding very positively -- >> children i asked. >> he exits the stage, what is the lasting impact on the paul ryans and the marco rubio's and the rudy giuliani's and the entire republican party? >> they're morally tainted there's no question about that you can't say he's a racist and what he said was textbook racism, but i support him because he's the nominee of my
4:44 am
party. have you been somewhat outflanked on the, i don't know, rudeness quotient or the guy who's willing to tell it like it is, place? >> thank you, cokie for the characterization of the rudeness quotient i appreciate that. >> i could literally watch for hours. let's bring in author and nbc news presidential historian michael bes losh, and michael try to put the legacy of cokie roberts into words. >> well, you saw she was tough on an awful lot of political leaders, presidents and presidential candidates, and i think maybe the legacy, mika, is not only as a path breaker, which she sure was for women beginning with that stellar career at npr finally winding up at abc, but really as an historian because she wrote these books. you know, you've read them we've talked about them, founding mothers and others about early america. and before cokie, a lot of times
4:45 am
when largely male authors not only would write about people like dolly madison and early women in the history of this country they would be described as sort of peripheral figures, sometimes, you know, mainly social sort of frivolous, and because of cokie, she showed that we wouldn't have this country, and particularly early america, without them s substanti substantively. and the other thing was this was not unusual because she really came out of american history she was descended from william claiborne who was the governor of louisiana in the 1810s, believe it or not, had to do with the louisiana purchase. her father famously was hale bogs the democratic house leader who tragically perished in a plane crash in alaska 1972 lbj and lady bird johnson were at her wedding, and when her father passed, he was succeeded by wonderful person, i'm sure
4:46 am
you knew, lindy boggs, so she now not only wrote about history, but she really had that close family exposure to it. >> she was history, yes. >> yes >> and she would come on the set and so nice, but i would immediately get nervous. i'd be like oh, my gosh, cokie roberts is here. she made you think how can i be betteri be smarter because cokie roberts is here. >> she was a mentor to so many washington journalists and i didn't realize, i never met her but i was at the white house yesterday when this news broke, and it was such a somber moment, and a lot of colleagues, you know, went into each other's work space and offered their condolence you know, i know john carl posted something really touching and moving about her experience, and i saw reporters going in and sort of offering their condolences to him, and other reporters calling other people they knew who had been touched with her and people she had been kind with. i was there with kristen welker and peter alexander in our work
4:47 am
space, and both of them talking about what a mentor and role model she was for them and then just sort of looking around at the white house and seeing that, you know, we are that group that is pickle up this mantle from so many of these great legendary journalists before us, and sort of hoping that we are doing -- you know, we are carrying that on we are picking that up and mind you, it was a moment to remind ourselves that we are the next ones going to carry that. >> these women who really paved the trail for us. >> right we have a big responsibility there. >> i posted something on mike. >> you know what's kind of interesting to me, perhaps to others about her passing and all the eulogies and describing relationships with her and who she was, this is a business like many other businesses filled with people throwing elbows all day long to get ahead. cokie roberts never had elbows to throw
4:48 am
all she had was her talent, her intellect, and her heart at the end of the day, she was just simply a really nice woman, a really nice woman. >> i didn't know her well, mika, except when she came on the show, i've always had great respect for her. but watching abc yesterday when this news broke and just reporter after reporter, anchor after anchor from george stephanopoulos to martha radd z raddatz, to john carl, to sam donaldson, the reverence they had in their voice reminds me of when tim russert died, the way people talk about about him as they did cokie roberts and from a young reporter who would get a nice e-mail from cokie roberts. she thought i did a good job or she criticized my reporting, let met get better she left such an imprint not just at abc. >> she was sharp and witty, but really subtle. >> subtle she was, and you know,
4:49 am
you know that sort of smile. you saw this even on the program when she was here, and our thoughts, all of us are with her husband steve. >> absolutely. >> michael beschloss thank you very much. we appreciate it, cokie roberts way too soon 75 years old, mplicati interfer0
