painter, you heard hallie talking about him. he's the chief white house ethics lawyer under george w. bush. and if you've followed the story, you've seen richard painter before, because he is one of the clearest voices on this in the country. he, by the way, is helping to coordinate the lawsuit that was filed today, which tells me, richard, that you believe it has merit. >> i do. and the white house has incorrectly characterized this as a partisan lawsuit. i've been involved in the republican party for 30 years. i would like to see more republicans elected, who will keep the russians out of our e-mail. we need honest republicans who will hold this administration accountable. this is about foreign government payments to the president who is prohibited, under the constitution, from receiving foreign government money. and that includes money from organizations, corporations, banks controlled by foreign governments. and that's why we filed this lawsuit on behalf of crew. now we see the district of columbia and the state of maryland joining the lawsuit. and we are asking a federal judge i

renund linguist author and professor emeritus at uc berkeley. george, good to see you. thank you for being with us. >> a pleasure to be here. >> here is the question. and by the way, i've been getting tweets about this thing. you people are beating the drumgs of war. we're not, actually. i think it's kind of opposite. the concern that most people have the language that you use when you get into a situation like this where there are nuclear weapons and tests and threats of bombing and things like that. it becomes really, really, really important to be measured and i don't mean this as a slight to the president, but that's not something most people would associate with them, being measured in his language. >> not at all. it is dangerous language. but it's important to understand how this president thinks about himself and about other leaders. the president hoos a central met for which he functions in front of which is that the president is the nation. any leaks are seen as national security leaks. he talks about the american people, he really means his supporters when he says the ameri

house ethics lawyerer under george w. bush and joins me now. richard, good to see you. what have you mad so far of the release of the information from mar-a-lago from the white house? >> they didn't tell us anything. they have a legal obligation to disclose these records of who is coming and going. officially not a state's government business being conducted in mar-a-lago. a report in the "washington post," billed or two two nights for a room at $500 a night is a pretty steep bill for the taxpayers to pick up. u.s. government business conducted down there. taxpayers paying for it, including all the trips back and forth that cost millions of dollars. we're entitled to this information under the freedom of information act and going to get it. we have to go back to the judge and work through this, but the president needs to be a lot more transparent in his business and who is seeing him there at mar-a-lago as well as at the white house. that's what he ought to be doing. being transparents with the american people instead are wasting his time insulting scotland yard and tweeting all the

places -- by the way, obama administration 85 percent, george w. bush between 20002 and 20008 afrmd 14%. mexico, average that they don't like president trump so much. maybe it's got something to do with that wall. but germany, 11%. it 22% in canada and the uk. you would expect some of the highest numbers from canada and the uk. israel 53%, russia -- >> what does emmanuel macron get out of this chum myness with donald trump? >> i think it's interesting. you saw macron in the press conference and in the statements before president trump, he did not back away from any of his policies. he didn't back away from his policy on climate. he didn't back away from his policy on trade, on the importance of europe, nato, you can go on and on, diversity. so i think to give the president of france credit, this is what he believes and he's going to continue to believe it. the one -- it was interesting, once again, back to that picture of the two presidents meeting, you could see our military and our intelligence around that table. the institutions are very close. the institutions worked well together.

served under president george w. bush. great to see both of you. i always feel a lit better when we talk about north korea to have you both there. kelly, let me start with you. it is important for americans to understand that when we see the president of the united states standing by the president of south korea, where there are 23.5,000 u.s. troops, a strategic allie, missile batteries. while they both don't like north korea and what they're doing, the aims are different or the ways in wish they wish to get to those aims is a little bit different? >> yeah, a couple observations, stood most important goal for president trump and president moon was to build a relationship. there is what of an odd couple on the world stage, both of them share the same goal, of course, of denuclearization of the korean peninsula, come at it at different approaches, president moon takes a much more aggressive approach on emphasis in engaging the forth koreans and president trump and his administration decided a coarse approach. the task was to get on the same page with north korea strategy. >> sorry, kelly,

down. i wonder, is it george washington next week? and is it thomas jefferson the week after? you know, you really do have to ask yourself where does it stop. >> eventually it might be useful to ask yourself where the revolutionary war stopped and where the civil war started because those two groups of generals are from two different wars. last night in memphis tennessee a hundred people gathered around a statue of president jefferson davis calling for its removal. marryian athere were protestors, counterprotestors. where did things end up? >> reporter: ali, many people who were out there protesting peacefully, i will have to say, but anti-monument protestors, they were spitting at the statue of jefferson davis. you also then had about a half a dozen counterprotestors and there were heated exchanges between all of them. the police asked the counterprotestors to leave the park, and they are the ones that some of them identify as the sons of confederate veterans, and they were there to, quote, protect the monuments. i'm standing in front of the memphis city hall right now where prot

made. 264, compare that to the 433 nominations from president obama and 414 for george w. bush during similar points this their respective presidents. all right. coming up next, fuzzy math. that's the part i like. it feels like groundhog day at the white house. the president keeps taking credit for rebounding economy and raising job nblz. after are the break we're calling his bluff again, something that caught seth meyers' eye last night. >> we need to put this to rest. he's been saying this all the time and if anybody that has to do with president trump -- this 12.6% economic growth. it is for one quarter. you can spike g.o.a.t. for a kwourt all sorts of times. you know how many times during president obama's year, brook accident was 2.6% or higher? 14 kwourts. >> one more time. say it again. >> 14 times during president obama's administration -- >> i like it that msnbc anchors are now acting as hype men for one another. one more time. say it again. soon they're going to start taking their lapel mikes off and dropping them. msnbc, yeah. americans - 83% try to eat healthy. yet

have more power than some would think that it does. and george w. bush did this. and barack obama did it. they did it in different ways but they grabbed more power for the presidency. did they grab enough to hobble congress now that we have a president who might just be ineffective for the remainder of his term? >> well, so a lot of the expansion of the executive power that occurred in the bush administration and the obama administration surprised a lot of people by keeping and entrenching and normalizing, maybe shaving the rough edges off the foreign policy. we are engaged in a war against the islamic state and arguably congress never authorized. just like the congress never authorized the war in libya under obama. we are engaged in a warrantless surveillance program that bush started without congressional authority and then persuaded congress and including then senator obama to lock down. so all of the tools -- the 21st century post 9/11 tools fell into the hands of donald trump. but that's a sort of different category of thing than these domestic policies about tax reform and h

george w. bush. richard, so some of the studying we have been doing indicates if you are not colluding with or dealing with providing benefit to an enemy in a time of war, it may not be interpreted as treason. >> the dictionary definition of treason is betrayal of one's country particularly to a foreign adversary. the statute that we have for prosecution of treason in and of itself does only apply when there is a declared war or attempt to overthrow the united states government. that particular statute. but we didn't have declared war throughout the cold war. people went to jail for conduct that amounted to the dictionary definition of treason. they just weren't prosecuted under the treason statute. we have statutes that prohibit espionage, that prohibit computer hacking and theft of data, statutes that prohibit false statements to the government, that prohibit perjury, that prohibit foreign governments from assisting united states government political campaigns. when we don't have a declared war, we deal with treason through other applicable law but that doesn't mean betraying one's c

security analyst, former fbi special agent, senior fellow at george washington university center for cyber and homeland security. clint, interesting comment from jeh johnson, addressing a question from jay gowdy. if so many people knew so much about the russians trying to meddle in the election last year, was it not our right, as americans, without giving us the whole story, to tell us something about it? listen to jeh johnson. >> so what more could we have done, should we have done before the election? >> in retrospect, it would have been easy for me to say i should have bought a sleeping bag and camped in and out front of the dnc in late summer, with the benefit of hindsight. i can tell you for certain that in the late summer/fall i was very concerned about what i was seeing. this was on my front burner all throughout the pre-election period in august, september, october and early november to encourage the states to come in and seek our assistance. >> so, clint, as a former fbi agent, as a security analyst, i know you can hold two thoughts in your mind at the same time. >> right. >
