[ cheers and applause that is wonderful to hear. in that case, let's get to the news house democrats this afternoon subpoenaed rudy giuliani for documents related to his communications with ukraine. said rudy, "sure, anything to
help." [ light laughter ] i'm kidding. he turned into a bat and flew into a window. [ laughter and applause really you subpoenaed rudy giuliani for documents? does this look like a man who keeps all of his documents organized? [ laughter ] his office probably looks like the first half of a "hoarders" episode. [ light laughter ] he probably already lost the subpoena you just served him [ laughter ] house speaker nancy pelosi told democrats yesterday that their tone around the impeachment inquiry must be, quote, "prayerful, respectful, solemn, worthy of the constitution." while president trump told republicans their tone must be divorced dad at his son's little league game. [ laughter and applause in a new interview with "people" magazine, hillary clinton called president trump a, quote, "corrupt human tornado." i mean that's going a little far. human? [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause president trump --
president trump tweeted a quote from a fox news contributer yesterday claiming that removing him from office, quote, "would cause a civil war- like fracture that will never heal." well, if it's a civil war that would pit brother against brother then, i'm all for it [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause president trump played golf this weekend with senator lindsey graham trump shot a 68. and graham shot anyone who said otherwise. [ laughter ] a number of u.s. cities are set to top record high temperatures this wednesday it will be the hottest october since party city introduced sexy bert and ernie [ laughter and applause a record-breaking 40 inches of snow fell in montana this weekend. and this is crazy, just on one guy. [ laughter ] a pub in britain attempted to break a guinness world record this weekend by hosting a so-called "nigel night" gathering 433 people named nigel in one location.
[ light laughter ] the previous record was 388 nigels, which was set every other night. [ laughter ] sportswear brand asics issued an apology yesterday after video screens outside one of its stores in new zealand played pornographic videos for several hours.

[ light laughter ] ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show tonight [ cheers and applause he is the host of "all in with chris hayes," which airs weeknights on msnbc. chris hayes is back, everybody [ cheers and applause they are mlb analysts. and they're two of our

[ cheers and applause and this is so exciting. she's currently on tour in support of her album, "head above water. avril lavigne is here. [ cheers and applause so you're here on a great night. before we get to all that, the president is accusing democrats of treason as republicans flail in their attempts to defend him from impeachment for more on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause >> seth: after more than two years of serially abusing his power as president using the office to enrich himself, welcoming the interference of foreign governments and inflicting human rights abuses on migrant families, donald trump probably thought he got away with all of it. he was like patrick swayze at the end of "point break. except, instead of a cool ass surfer, he looks like a guy who tried to ride a huge wave, fell off his board, and then just washed up on the beach [ laughter ] this afternoon, trump spoke to
the media in the oval office and you can tell that he is totally out of ways to defend himself, because now he just keeps insisting that he didn't do anything wrong on his call with the president of ukraine. >> we have a whistleblower that reports things that were incorrect. as you know, and you probably now have figured it out, the statement i made to the president of ukraine, a good man, a nice man, new, was perfect. it was perfect >> seth: i like how he just throws in, "you probably have figured it out," like they're all on his side. like, in trump's mind reporters are out there pounding the pavement, digging for clues, marching into their editors' office going, "chief i got the scoop of the year. put it on the front page the call was perfect." [ laughter ] now reality is catching up with trump as democrats move forward with their impeachment inquiry, and support for impeachment rises in the poles and in response to all that, trump is predictably losing his mind >> the president leading his own defense on twitter overnight, lashing out saying that adam schiff should be tried for treason, even suggesting the possibility off civil war if he is impeached >> trump even quotes a fox news
guest who predicted a, quote, "civil war- like fracture" would result from the inquiry, and calls for chairman schiff to resign >> "in addition, i want to meet not only my accuser, who presented second & third hand information, but also the person who illegally gave this information, which was largely incorrect, to the 'whistleblower.' was this person spying on the u.s. president big consequences!" >> "representative adam schiff illegally made up a fake & terrible statement, pretended to be mine as the most important part of my call to the ukrainian president, and read it aloud to congress and the american people it bore no relationship to what i said on the call arrest for treason?" >> seth: honestly, thank god he's a moron he is threatening the collapse of american democracy. and he says it like he's offering hors d'oeuvres at a party. "can i get you a bacon wrapped date some arrests for treason or maybe you'd like our obama netflix? [ laughter ] but this is dangerous. the president is threatening
arrest and imprisonment for people who dare to investigate his abuse of power the only thing stopping our system from collapsing is that everyone just ignores it we've all gotten to the point where we have to treat the president of the united states like a guy taking a [ bleep ] in a subway car [ laughter ] at some point everyone's just going to move to the other end of the country [ cheers and applause by the way - the president accusing a sitting congressman of treason simply for investigating him is itself an impeachable offense he keeps stacking offenses on top of impeachable offenses. he's making a scooby sandwich of crimes [ laughter ] "scoobs, we're about to get impeached. we got to get out of here. [ light laughter ] [ cheers and applause it was a - it was a cartoon that aired when my writers were young. [ laughter ] and as trump was melting down this weekend, the white house
was dispatching allies to the sunday shows to try to defend him. let's start with the creepiest member of trump's staff, white house senior policy advisor stephen miller [ thunder crash [ witch laughs ] [ laughter ] >> seth: miller went on fox news sunday right after fox reported that trump had been in contact not just with his personal lawyer rudy guiliani, but with two other private attorneys to dig up dirt from ukraine fox host chris wallace asked miller why, if it was such a legitimate inquiry, trump didn't go through official channels and miller had no answer >> why did they use three private lawyers to get information on biden from the -- from the ukranian government rather than go through all of the agencies of his government? >> two different points. number one >> how about answering my question stephen, i'm asking you a direct question why did the president use private attorneys rather than go to the state department? if you don't know that's an acceptable answer. >> there's two issues that were brought up on the phone call - >> i'm not asking two issues
why did he do it >> chris, i understand i understand that you have your question i have my answer there's two issues that were brought up in the phone call >> you have your non-answer at this point [ laughter ] >> seth: damn. damn, chris, be careful. if you anger him too much, he'll sneak into your room at night, bite you on the neck and turn you into whatever he is, which i guess is a - hairless cat [ laughter and applause then there was ohio congressman jim jordan who went on cnn to repeat a bunch of debunked conspiracy theories about joe biden. now, the short version of what you need to know here is that the obama administration and most of the west called for ukrainian prosecutor to be fired, because he wasn't doing enough to investigate corruption that prosecutor was not investigating biden's son at the time yet, jordan kept repeating the lie anyway until cnn host jake tapper had enough >> he's getting paid 50,000. and then when the company that's paying him that money is under investigation, guess what. daddy comes running to the rescue the vice president of the united states - >> that's not what happened. >> -- fired that prosecutor. >> sir - sir, that's not what happened. >> i'm just telling you what
happened joe biden -- >> no you're not >> -- called up and said, "fire this prosecutor or you you're not getting in." >> no, you are suggesting that biden called for the prosecutioner to be fired to protect his son. >> that's not what happened. joe biden was trying to get a prosecutor who was not pursuing corruption fired it was supporting -- >> it's amazing the gymnastics you guys will go through to defend what -- >> sir, it's not gymnastics, it's facts >> seth: it's fun to see jake tapper tell an actual congressman this isn't gymnastics "what? it isn't i was about to tell a lie while doing a hand stand on a pommel horse." [ light laughter ] sunday was filled with republicans flailing in one interview after another, because they have no convincing answers for the president's behavior of course rudy was in the middle of it as he always is. now, given that he was the key figure relaying information between trump and ukraine, today three different house committees subpoenaed him on sunday, rudy was asked if he would comply with such a subpoena and his answer as usual made no sense. >> are you going to cooperate with the house intelligence committee? >> that is a question that has a lot, a lot of implications
believe it or not i'm an attorney >> seth: i do not believe it [ laughter ] i think -- i think you're a bunch of body parts sewn together and brought to life in a laboratory. and maybe, just maybe some of the body parts were from attorneys. [ light laughter ] but by far my favorite republican dumb guy from the sunday shows yesterday was house minority leader kevin mccarthy who did an interview with "60 minutes. mccarthy was asked about the notes on trump's phone call with the president of ukraine now, in these notes, the president of ukraine expressed an interest in getting more military aide from the u.s., including anti-tank weapons called javelins. and immediately after that, trump said, "i would like you to do us a favor though." and when mccarthy was asked about that exchange, which seems like anobvious quid pro quo, he tried a very dumb defense that did not work >> what do you make of this exchange president zelensky says, "we're almost ready to buy more javelins from the united states for defense purposes." and president trump replies, "i
would like you to do us a favor, though." >> you just added another word >> no. it's in the transcript >> you said, "i'd like you to do a favor, though. >> yes it's in -- it's in the white house transcript >> when i read the transcript -- >> seth: i mean, it's amazing. i love that his genius defense was, "you added a word." [ light laughter ] and it wasn't even true. also which word in that sentence does he think if you took it out would suddenly make it okay? [ laughter ] my favorite part of the interview came next when "60 minutes" host scott pelley asked mccarthy how he planned to defend the president >> how do you expect the president's defense to roll out going forward? >> the defense of what >> well there's an impeachment inquiry. [ laughter and applause >> seth: [ bleep ] he's like a kid who is stumped during a spelling bee. "impeachment uh, can you use it in a sentence?"
[ laughter ] "impeachment as in, the president is about to go through impeachment." "okay. can you -- can you spell it?" [ laughter ] trump and his allies can't defend their behavior, because there is no defense. what happened here is very simple and obvious the president asked for a quid pro quo. the white house tried to cover it up. and they got caught. that's it. so now, trump is just lying about the whistleblower, who report was deemed credible and urgent, and coorberated by the notes from the call itself today, trump tweeted, "the whistleblower knew almost nothing, its 2nd hand description of the call is a fraud! oh, so now you're suddenly you're concerned about second hand information because you're the guy who tweeted, "an 'extremely credible source' has called my office and told me that @barackobama's birth certificate is fraud." you just made that fake source up for a racist lie. trump likes to think he's a whistleblower. that's why his lips always look like that. [ laughter ] but in reality, he's just eating the whistle. [ light laughter ] "it's pretty cool actually, because now when i fart it sounds like this [ whistle
[ laughter and applause there's another one coming soon." [ laughter ] in a way, we're lucky that these guys are incompetent morons. because now, rather than sticking together and coming up with a coherent and believable defense, they're all pointing fingers at each other trying to blame one another for what happened with ukraine. like rudy, you know, the guy who always looks like he just woke up in the middle of every interview. i mean, look at him. [ light laughter ] he looks like an animatronic robot in disney's country bear jamboree who magically comes to life when you ask him a question [ laughter and applause now last week, rudy went on fox news and said it was actually the state department that instructed him to pressure ukraine to investigate joe biden, even holding up his phone to show the calls from the state department and then on thursday night, he went on fox news again and showed everyone his text messages with state department official named kurt volker who had instructed him to meet with ukrainian officials. >> what is the significance of these? and are you, rudy, concerned that you're unneccessarily dragging, you know, his name
into this? >> who whose name >> volker's name >> he asked -- >> volker. >> he should step forward and explain what he did. the whistleblower falsely alleges that i was operating on my own well i wasn't operating on my own. >> seth: i like that rudy is trying to smear the whistleblower by pointing out the crimes they didn't report. "the whistleblower says i acted alone. well joke's on them. we had a whole team. [ laughter ] it was like 'ocean's 11' but if they were dumb and not handsome." [ light laughter ] then rudy literally pulled out his ipad his ipad and read the text messages from volker, state department official telling him to meet with ukrainian officials >> well, here's -- here's kurt here's kurt saying, "great i will tell yormack and he'll visit with you there thanks mr. mayor, how was your meeting with andre do you have time for a call? best, kurt." now they're all over me, you know, asking me to do it i was happy to do it
>> seth: oh, my god. rudy, you're literally reading evidence against yourself -- [ laughter ] on national television look, i'm not a lawyer, but here's my best legal advice. go back to sleep [ laughter ] there you go also it's never good when a confused old man reads texts off his ipad [ light laughter ] i mean, best case scenario, it's your grandpa asking you how to advance to the next level on candy crush. "i want to buy more lives, but i keep accidentally taking pictures of myself." [ laughter ] but the weirdest part was when rudy was asked about republicans, like utah senator mitt romney, who had called the ukraine accusations trpubling, and somehow ended up doing a bizarre impression of al gore. >> one time, bill clinton asked me, "what's this guy romney like?" you know what i told him he's our al gore >> all right rudy, hold that thought. >> seth: what do you mean, hold that thought [ laughter ] that's not a thought that's a spasm [ laughter ] i mean, look at him. it's like how your grandpa dances at a wedding.
he looks like a guy who is duct taped to a chair trying to break free, which is probably something he's actually done because i'm pretty sure after he does one of these interviews, the white house tries to duct tape him to a chair so he can't do another one "got to get out of here, rudy. [ applause ] you got to get loose got to go back on tv and confess to crimes. now today we found out that secretary of state mike pompeo was himself on the call. these guys are all unraveling and pointing fingers at each other, because everything is coming out now for example, remember that infamous meeting trump had with the russians in the oval oice in 2017? that was the meeting where he shared classified information and bragged about firing former fbi director james comey well over the weekend, "the washington post" reported that during that meeting, trump also told the russians he didn't care that they'd interfered in the 2016 election. and then his aides tried to cover that up, too and then late this afternoon, we found out he also asked the prime minister of australia to get involved >> president trump has asked another foreign leader, this time it was the prime minister
of australia to help investigate his conspiracy theories around the origins of the now complete, over and shuttered mueller investigation. from that "new york times" story, quote, "preisdent trump pushed the australian prime minster during a recent telephone call to help ag william barr gather information for justice department inquiry that mr. trump hos iscrit the mueller investigation. >> seth: it keeps happening. trump tells a foreign country he either wants them to interfere in our elections or he doesn't care if they do, and then his aides try to hide it honestly, i'm just shocked we didn't find out about it from a text message on fox news "rudy, i told the russians i don't care if they interfere in our election lhlh i also asked australia to help us out and i tried to bribe ukraine. all of this impeachable. whatever you do don't read this text message out loud on fox news." [ laughter and applause you can tell, impeachment is already having an impact because rather than sticking together and coming up a coherent defense, trump and his allies are running through the dumbest excuses and pointing
fingers at each other. i don't know if this whole thing will end up with anyone getting taken away in handcuffs. but if it does, at least we know what that will look like [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause we'll be right back with chris hayes, everybody [ cheers and applause ♪ >> announcer: for more of seth's "closer looks," be sure to subscribe to "late night" on youtube. yeah, that's half the fun of a new house. seeing what people left behind in the attic. well, saving on homeowners insurance with geico's help was pretty fun too. ahhhh, it's a tiny dancer. they left a ton of stuff up here. welp, enjoy your house. nope. no thank you. geico could help you save on homeowners and renters insurance.

open when you're here talking about how much has happened, but today -- i mean, again, you have a show not even a little bit more than an hour from now >> yep >> seth: and things we found out in just last couple hours, mike pompeo was on that call rudy giuliani has been subpoenaed by three different committees and supposedly donald trump asked australia -- the australian prime minister to help a coordinated with ag barr in investigating the beginnings of the mueller investigation >> correct >> seth: that's a lot. >> it's a lot. >> seth: yeah. >> a lot i mean, it is really -- the last week has been pretty nuts and i think -- you know, you think about politics and crisis and moments of sort of kinetic dynamism and you know, there's this idea that things happen in a linear fashion, like you're painting a room you know, and when you are painting a room you always know where you are and how much left to go, but it's a lot more like a stuck lid jar. [ laughter ] right? like, you sort of go at it you go at it you go at it and it pops off and, you know, when you look at sort of these moments in history
whether it's watergate, whether it's just reading history of other countries and other times. like, things take longer to happen than they think they will and then they happen faster than you can imagine. >> seth: right and, now it does seem, like it's happening very quickly you kind of called this last time you were here you had a nice analogy to oedipus that i want to show because it does feel, like what you were saying was going to happen, happened let's take a look. >> the case is very strong and politics very strong and you've got the democratic leadership, like holding back the reins and the whole thing feels like a greek play. in act two where it's like -- it's like oedipus is going to end up with his mom. [ laughter ] >> seth: and now it seems, like it's happening >> yes yes. i mean, the whole -- from the moment this congress took over it felt kind of faded in a way right? and partly that's because of the -- primarily it's because of the behavior of this president the way he conducts himself. the manifest lawlessness with which he stewards the nation's affairs or stewards his own
affairs, which he can't distinguish between. and the fact that the congress was elected to sort of provide some kind oversight. and those two things seemed on collision course from the first day. and it was a collision that i think nancy pelosi desperately wanted to avoid. >> seth: yeah. >> but at a certain point it became unavoidable in the last seven days >> seth: obviously i want to talk about republican reaction to this, but you mentioned nancy pelosi and it did seem as though, that has happened in this last week is this sort of newly elected moderate democrats from sort of swing districts a lot of whom have backgrounds in national security they seem to be the ones who have been the final step the sort of tipping point elected officials. >> yeah, and i think that, you know, there's about 40 or so that came out in a big chunk after the call notes were released and i think that has -- there's a few things are going on there. one, the facts are just indefensible so, i think there's actually just a first order subsided belief by a lot of them. like, this is impeachable conduct and we have to say so,
or at least it merits an inquiry. and then the second thing is, the theory of the case was, we're going to beat him in the ballot box in 2020 if he running around the world rigging the election, then you may have a harder time beating him. >> seth: yeah. >> right, like it is not retrospective investigation to what happen in 2016. it's some kind of deterrent effect on what he might get up to in 2020 and i think that just the clarity of that in that moment, when people say to themselves, "well, what exactly is he doing on these phone calls what does he say to mohammed bin salman when he calls him up what does he say to vladimir putin what does he say to other folks about how they can help him win 2020 >> seth: right >> that got people to really to understand that the stakes were very, very clear and present and firm >> seth: and i think -- and one thing we can all take away is, he's never had a phone call in his life where it hasn't been about what can you do for me [ laughter ] >> exactly >> seth: he's never picked up the phone and said -- started with, "how are you?" >> right, yes. >> seth: you know that yeah >> or -- or about u.s. policy. >> seth: yeah.
>> i mean, that's part of at's so striking about those call notes. there's nothing in the call notes about u.s. policy towards ukraine. >> seth: right >> the ukrainian side has all sorts of policy objections we need more money and we need more javelins. please send us those arms. we're psyched to buy some more oil from you >> seth: yeah. >> donald trump's, like "yeah, yeah, yeah here's what i need from you. >> seth: right, yeah >> as donald trump and that's, to me, the kind of fundamental sin here is that the man who is tasked with representing all of us as a public representative of the american body politic, cannot constitutionally conceive himself other than self interest >> seth: the other thing amazing on the timeline, and correct me if i'm wrong, was it seems like this call that we're now getting the transcript of was just a couple days, or a day after the mueller investigation. one day. >> so, it was the day after muller's testimony >> seth: muller's testimony. so, it was a thing of, it is the call or the man who thinks he's in the clear, who just trips over himself immediately it's, like in "goodfellas" when
they're, like "don't spend the money. [ laughter ] >> yes >> seth: right, "don't buy a car the next day." >> cut to -- [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah, right exactly. >> no, and it's really funny, because when the report first surfaced about the timing, people noticed they said, "well, that's interesting. mueller testifies on, i think the 24th and on the calls on the 25th i wonder if those --" and on the call itself trump says, "i don't know if you saw mueller yesterday. [ laughter ] "but he was really bad, so, uh a collusion? what do you think? laughter ] >> seth: yeah. you did a podcast. you were down in texas you did a podcast with senator ted cruz >> i did >> seth: and he has said, i believe that he said on the podcast, "he did not think that the president should have gone down that path with biden and asking the ukrainian president about that but, also that he is not for impeachment. how are we just going -- is this the balancing act we're going to will see moving forward is them saying, "you know, that was obviously not how i would have handled it, but still, let's not be silly." >> well, even that seems, like a concession honestly. because, i mean, you've seen -- there's sort of three catagorties. there's people who are just pretending not to see any of
this and notice it great rundowns of all gop senators who haven't read the whistleblower complaint, which is four pages. >> seth: yeah. >> so, there's a little bit of, like "ignorance a bliss. i don't want to know what happened." there's then the people who, like are -- died in the wool with the presentiment it was a perfect phone call >> seth: yeah. >> i mean, you like -- "that was a perfect phone call i love it. it was great perfect. then, there are people, i think who were, like "yeah, that wasn't great, but you shouldn't impeach him. and you actually would think that category would be bigger. i mean, if you go back and you look at a clinton impeachment. there were tons of democrats and there were not a lot of democrats running around being like, "it was great that he had sexual relations with s intern." >> seth: yeah. >> "that was a perfect relationship." [ laughter ] >> seth: yeah. >> "and i'm glad he did it." >> seth: yeah, it's perfect. [ cheers ] >> no one's saying that. like, no one is saying that. >> seth: when two people love each other - [ laughter ] >> yes, exactly. [ laughter ] no, what people said was, "yeah, that was not good. we all agree that was not good, but it's not impeachable." >> seth: also the -- the other crazy thing is, never before in
my life have i head someone about any phone call say, "perfect." [ laughter ] i've never been like, "nailed it." [ laughter ] that pizza is going to be exactly the way i asked for it one last thing i want to ask you about, which is really cool, you were doing your show with a live studio audience. >> yeah. >> seth: once a week on -- is it friday night >> yeah, on friday nights at 8:00 pm we do it live. it's, you know, we got an audience sort of, like this. >> seth: and it's in the building >> yeah. >> seth: and you know, i do think that is obviously the biggest difference between the kind of shows we do is not having an audience and you know, i can tell you from experience, it's pretty exciting to have people in the room >> it's fantastic. there's nothing like the energy of other people there in the room and i think it's been -- it's also kind of cool 'cause it's a different genre, right? we're not doing a late night show it's not a comedy show it's a new show, but it's new show that's done with people there. and i think we're finding some kind of new form actually that i think we're all really excited about. >> seth: it's nice i feel, like we live in this an era right now when people are connecting with one another via their interest in the news and i think it's nice that you've given them a place to do that. thank you so much for being here

a build-up of lactic acid and liver problems. do not take biktarvy if you take dofetilide or rifampin. tell your doctor about all the medicines and supplements you take, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you have kidney or liver problems, including hepatitis. if you have hepatitis b, do not stop taking biktarvy without talking to your doctor. common side effects were diarrhea, nausea, and headache. if you're hiv-positive, keep loving who you are, inside and out. ask your doctor if biktarvy is right for you. to the wait did frowe just win-ners. prouders everyone uses their phone differently. that's why xfinity mobile let's you design your own data. now you can share it between lines.
