11:00 pm
pitiful you can't win with that. >> what's also funny about these defenders is you think they're all offensive guys. every time someone makes a picker. hey i should have played running back. i can return this and key thinks you can return, you can do whatever they want. they think they can play offense as well. what's truly amazing about this defense is they're just as dominant with their starters as they are with their back ups. gary bradley robey a starter. robey definitely got more work and made more plays including the biggest play of the game. >> i'm always ready, man. that's what i live for. this is what i do. make plays and win games that's it. >> my goal was to keep down, another chance for me to get out on the field a little bit
11:01 pm
and take advantage of those opportunities you get. >> robey has got it. robey on the sideline. 30, 25, 20. rivers to 15,10. >> we did an under rout. i was trailing behind him. and i kind of saw the corner of my eye that the ball was kind of high. and i kind of anticipated the drop. and when it flew in the air i just kind of found it and took it to the house. >> touchdown denver. gladly robey's first interception of the season. >> he's a true competitor. he's definitely one of the most competitive quarterbacks in this league for sure. he's always a tough battle. when we play him. i like playing against guys like that because it raises my ability as well. >> on the other side of the
11:02 pm
got their big chances today. >> yeah. >> didn't have the houston texans defense to run against. >> that was isaiah. >> i think the misconception was somehow this offensive line has fixed all their issues. the issue is you played the 29th ranked left defense. san diego chargers are a much better run defense. i don't think we would have seen a lot of production. >> i guess that's how you go from nonexistent since he couldn't get out of his own way said he wasn't disappointed. that's the coach saying it like it is. >> i thought booker actually ran the ball pretty well. they got some tough yards. that was a terrible fumble. looked like they were trying to lunge or do a leap. that backfired on him. capri bibs he fumbled right away on the pitch. i think he lost a little
11:03 pm
there. their running back, especially dev -- devon te went out with a shoulder injury. they got the trading deadline tuesday. >> the first quarter rushing stats, three carries, one yard. you want to get your quarterback who's been not playing so well off to a good start run the ball effectively. didn't get that done >> they won. trevor simiens lucky that the broncos lost the first couple of games. had they lost i think people would have been screaming for paxie again even if buhebyme production. >> the offensive line -- he's going back. he got guys right there with him. then again, i counted mike most of us counted three balls that
11:04 pm
been interception. chad is more critical than mike and i. the crazy thing is the one that got intercepted was right there. >> he got the tip which is what arobi turned on those tip passes are always the ones that get you. still simian. the one that came back, the play of the game that got back on their own territory after they hold, i think they hold san diego and after the 31d pass to virgil green,40-yard pass. beautiful pass down the left field line where damarius made the nice mass. -- pass. he has a chance of hanging in there. there's an unflappable quality that we have. he will be their quarterback the rest of this year. that was, you know, he's still learning and they're winning and he has room to grow all at the same time. >> on halloween eve we'll be joined by the scariest dude on
11:05 pm
>> it's going to be a better time. let's go baby, let's go. >> we're crying wolf when bronco's tonight continues. >> oh yeah, i put it on him. i really put it on him.
11:06 pm
11:07 pm
11:08 pm
11:09 pm
yes it is pretty scary for qbs to face the denver d. >> jordan runs right into derek wolf, wolf with one arm pulls him down. >> the front, is that front to you guys because at play after big play that you guys needed it most. >> that's what it's all about. going out there and playing in a big game. a team that had just beat us. you know kind of handled us the first time they played us. it was a little embarrassing. we had something to prove against those guys. >> rivers deep drop. pressured now, throws pass. beyond melvin gordon. >> i think rivers was coming off that one hit. >> yeah i put it on him.
11:10 pm
thought, i can't believe he took that. because i put it on him. >> he must have been surprised because he was shocked that somebody took him down and then for you to help him up. >> he's not young anymore, he's no spring duck. but for him to take that shot. he's a tough guy. >> he likes to talk, did that quiet him down a little bit. >> yeah that quieted him down. he didn't say another word. >> tell me about the roller coaster of emotio all of a sudden pick six. everybody is excited. you turn around and your defensive coordinator is down on the sidelines that had to be quite a blow. oh my god who's that and it was wade.
11:11 pm
but to see him okay, it was great. he's like everybody's dad. a grandma. somebody you want to make proud. when he goes down like that you worry and you're just like let's do it for him. let's make sure we finish this out for him. >> you're used to this team just rolling through the west. kansas city, oakland, san diego playing well. everything is real tight. you know the significance of this team especially at home. >> this game, every game that team is huge it's a play off game. at the end of the day, do you want to go to foxboro or do you want to be here. we rather be here. >> if that's a play off game. would that make a super bowl type feel. >> yeah, it is. it's a huge huge game. >> you have to play against your order defensive coordinator. >> jack is a good dude. but i want to be in. >> i appreciate your time. >> thank you. >> bronco's not only
11:12 pm
several balls. wolf jared quick is that something they see on tape, chad. >> you do see on tape when a quarterback has a lower release. phillip rivers tends to have a lower release. it's a timing thing. as a defensive lineman and you're doing the pass. you think, maybe i'm being stalemated. i need to put my hand in there and block the pass. derek wolf has been good at that all weekend long. >> j.j. watt is the best at it and he was coached now the defensive lineman. >> the wide receivers looked so frustrated. they look like, they feel like they have to make a spectacular play or they're going to end the game zero catches for 0 yards. >> they are doing this little, throw it to me. and they're giving the hand gestures it reminded me of
11:13 pm
receiver here. immature, back in the 2007 and 2008. these guys every time they complain they tend to back it up. a tremendous catch by manuel there. the chargers got out of whack with their extra points. failing the extra points. it wound scoreboard. >> they think they're open all the time. they go back and they figure the one time they did complain, dt started it, everyone kind of continued that about we're not getting the ball enough. the next week they get the ball a whole lot. >> they both got huge contracts. and they built that contract knowing that peyton manning is not their quarterback anymore. >> but they're receivers. you can book a receiver on a
11:14 pm
open. big time players who make big time plays and big time moments. they did that today. >> broncos-raiders next week. to break a tie in the afc west division. >> raider week. >> finally. right. after 20 years is the rivalry back starting next week you think. >> i think it's officially back. the raiders are a very good team. they had almost 500 yards passing today. no interceptions, no fly zone. had our work cut out for them. >> new nfl record. >> still the >> thanks for staying up late. nine news at 10:00 continues right after a photo finish,
11:15 pm
11:16 pm
11:17 pm
11:18 pm
katy always loves to have the last word. >> if they stayed up this late with us i might as above average in the mid-70s. onlyitislated showers this week. we're behind on the moisture level. but the forecast looks tremendous. here it is back by popular demand, yes temperatures in the 50s. >> that does not look like the end of october.
11:19 pm
11:20 pm
11:21 pm
this sunday, october surprise. fbi director james comey's announcement of newly discovered e-mails jolts the race. >> the fbi would never have reopened this case at this time unless it were a most egregious criminal offense. >> can donald trump use this latest revelation to reinvigorate his campaign? i will talk to donald trump's running mate, governor mike pence live. plus, hillary clinton fights back. >> and so we have called on director comey to explain everything right away, put it all out on the table. >> clinton campaign manager robby mook joins me this morning. also, why now? comey under fierce assault from democrats. >> it does not make any sense to me. >> was comey right to go public
11:22 pm
election? joining me for insight and analysis are, top republican strategist mike murphy. nbc news chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell, audie cornish and larry kudlow. welcome to sunday, it's "meet the press." >> from nbc news in washington, this is "meet the press" with chuck todd. good sunday morning. perhaps one day this week's fbi among other october surprises. it was on october 26, 1972, less than two weeks before the election that national security adviser henry kessinger made this famous statement at the white house about the war in vietnam. >> we believe that peace is at hand. >> the moment was big. kissinger turns out was wrong and richard nixon easily won re-election. in 1992, four days before
11:23 pm
defense secretary casper weinberger, former defense secretary at the time was implicated in the iran contra scandal. then the weekend before the election in 2000 it was revealed that george w. bush had been arrested decades earlier for drunk driving. news that helped al gore pull even in the polls. that was actually our first november surprise technically. there's no way of knowing yet whether fbi director james comey's announcement will take its place among these more we do know that justice department officials strongly discouraged comey from going public. democrats have moved from reacting with caution to responding with anger. they say if comey doesn't know whether the e-mails are significant or whether they were sent to or from hillary clinton, then why go public right before the election? at the very least, this has reinvigorated the trump campaign and given new hope to down ballot republicans running for the house and senate.
11:24 pm
about a letter that the fbi director sent out yesterday. >> with nine days to go, an object surprise. >> it's not just strange. it's unprecedented. and it is deeply troubling. >> nearly four months after recommending no criminal charges against clinton, fbi director james comey told members of congress in a letter on friday that new e-mails have surfaced which, quote, appear to be pertinent to the investigation. law enforcementff laptop computer belonging to anthony wiener married to but estranged from huma abedin, a top clinton campaign aide. the fbi is investigating sexually explicit text messages wiener allegedly sent to a 15-year-old girl in north carolina. trump immediately tried to capitalize on the news. >> her criminal action was willful, deliberate, intentional
11:25 pm
>> the biggest rigging is what happened with the fbi. >> turned to praise on friday. >> it might not be as rigged as i thought. right? >> according to officials, abedin used the laptop to e-mail clinton. investigators will examine the thousands of e-mails belonging to abedin to see if they have anything to do with the original clinton investigation. the official said there's no indication so far that anyone was withholding evidence. repubic part of their closing argument. >> that is my letter from director comey telling me he is reopening the investigation. >> it's like throwing a political life line to republicans who are in house and senate races. >> is there enough time for trump to take advantage? >> this race is still tipable. it's not necessarily -- it's not going to move voters to donald trump. but it could move voters away from hillary clinton. >> before friday, it appears
11:26 pm
a state democrats have carried once since 1948. clinton campaigns in phoenix wednesday. nearly 20 million americans have voted. more democrats have voted in eight states, republicans in four. trump is short of cash. on trump he wired $10 million of his own money to his campaign. bringing the personal total contributions to $66 million. $34 million short of what he originally pledged. big republican donors are abandoning trump, channelling money to down ballot republicans. >> we do have disunity. i think that's something that complicates us at least in terms of making sure that we have the basic mechanical things that are getting done to turn out the vote. >> joining me now with an update on this investigation is pete williams. pete, there is one area where there seems to be unity between the clinton campaign and the trump campaign. let me show you both of their
11:27 pm
perhaps the most important national election of our lifetimes. voting is already under way in our country. so the american people deserve to get the full and complete facts immediately. >> look, i agree with john podesta and the clinton campaign. they're asking director comey to come forward and tell americans what this is all about. release everything. let us judge for ourselves. >> all right. there's the one area of they want director comey to provide more details before the election. is that going to happen? >> not based on what i was told just in the last couple of hours. i don't think they plan to say anything further. they believe that they did the right thing by telling congress about this development. their logic goes like this. that the fact of the discovery of these e-mails was going to leak. that if it leaked, it would come out in different ways and be interpreted in all sorts of different ways and that the best way to handle this was just to
11:28 pm
secondly they thought if they waited until after the election, and then it was discovered they found mails that would play into this about how the system is rigged. >> did he rush it? now we're getting reports that they don't know what's in the e-mails. they just know there's an e-mail cache that belongs to huma abedin. that's it. don't you wait to tell congress after you know you have evidence? this is just, there might be evidence, correct? >> we have been saying this since friday, that they don't know what is in these let's step back for a second. they have looked at the laptop. they were investigating wiener area laptop. they say, huma abedin used that and sent e-mails through the clinton server. our mission was to look at all the e-mails that went through the server. we have to look at these. they haven't analyzed them. they don't know if they are significant in the e-mail investigation, was there classified information. >> to go -- one of the reasons why they didn't bring charges,
11:29 pm
because everybody had a security cl clearance. how is this different? if abedin was using this laptop with the same e-mails, it's the same issue. a question about whether the system she was using is secure, that's still been part of the problem. the reason they didn't charges, she had a security clearance. >> what you hear from any legal expert is that if they do, for example, find that there was classified information in some of the e-mails, and it increases the number x plus some other number is what they already knew, there were some classified information when they reached their conclusion in july. if they find a few more, that's probably not going to change the legal bottom line. >> who is the target here? i ask that because she did sign a statement affirming she turned over any devices that had potentially that she used to conduct communication from herself and she didn't turn this
11:30 pm
or is hillary clinton? >> target is a term of art. let's set target aside. remember, the bottom line is the clinton e-mail investigation. if you go back to comey's letter, he says he thinks these e-mails are pertinent. but he doesn't know whether they're significant. pertinent, because their mission was to look at all the e-mails that went through the server. significance, they -- many of them, they may have seen. they may be so they have no idea what's in these e-mails. >> pete williams, thanks very much. >> you bet. donald trump wasted no time yesterday trying to take advantage of this news and rally his supporters. >> and they are reopening the case into her criminal and illegal conduct that threatens the security of the united
11:31 pm
for the obvious purpose of shielding her criminal conduct from public disclosure and exposure. >> joining me now is governor mike pence right here in studio. >> good to be with you. >> let me ask about the last statement in here. donald trump says that she almost with -- stated as fact that she set up this server to cover up criminal conduct. what criminal conduct is he tng when the director of the fbi gave that press conference where he essentially chronicled that hillary clinton had said that there was nothing marked classified on her private server, he said that was not true. when she said she never e-mailed classified e-mail, he said that was not true. he reiterated that before the congress. but then chose not to proceed with charges. it was just incomprexcomprehens
11:32 pm
crime? >> well, look -- ?(lc% eshe is saying it for sure. what he says, people take for fact. >> you have high ranking military officials. you have a sailor gone to jail in the last month. the mishandling of classified information is a serious matter. the fbi director concluded hillary clinton, while she was secretary of state, while she was taking major contributions from foreign governments, had a private server dealt with classified information but also had communications that we already know about. i mean, as we wonder what this new pertinent information is, we already have seen e-mails that have come out through various sources about pay to play politics, about -- that support this whole notion of clinton incorporated, that really -- that really are deeply troubling to millions of americans. i think that's why well before this announcement on friday,
11:33 pm
momentum in our campaign. you see the polls closing in states around the country, the american people are focusing on the big issues in this country. frankly, i think they have come to the conclusion that hillary clinton is a risky choice to be the next president of the united states and friday's announcement just reaffirms that. >> do you think it's fair to the american voter to essentially have him announce something vague, but we don't know what it is? we don't know the seriousness of it. he said pertinent, but we don't know. is that fair to the information. the clinton campaign -- it does seem as if everybody wants more information out before the election. >> first off, let's remember how we got here. hillary clinton, while she was secretary of state, had a private server that the fbi has already confirmed contained classified and sensitive information. it endangers the national security of the united states of america. there was information about military operations on there
11:34 pm
troops down range. so let's recognize this all began with her. the other piece of this, with regard to disclosure -- i'm very glad to hear hillary clinton calling for putting all of this out on the table. why doesn't she ask her senior aide to release all these e-mails? why doesn't she release all the 33,000 e-mails that she did not turn over to the fbi and to the congress initially? i think the american people have a right to know. but the decision by the fbi here i think is encouraging. number one, the fbi director is keeping his word to the congress that if new pertinent information came forward that justified the reopening of the case he would alert the congress. he's done that. >> do you think he has a duty to share more information of what's known? >> i think he has a duty to move forward professionally and in a timely way on this. certainly, the public has a right to know. but let's be clear. hillary clinton -- when this story broke, i believe she was
11:35 pm
why didn't she turn to huma and say, put these e-mails out. why wouldn't she make those e-mails available to members of congress? >> definitely a question for her and her campaign. let me ask you this. yesterday, donald trump said the following. this is the lowest point in terms of our judicial system in the history of our country. do you believe that? >> i think this summer was deeply troubling to millions of americans when you saw the federal bureau of following a meeting between former president clinton and the attorney general on a private aircraft on a tarmac that was discovered because of a local reporter who knew it took place and then a short time later you saw the federal bureau of investigation essentially call a press conference. he literally indicted her in the press and then said we're not recommending an indictment. >> i guess what i'm asking you is -- >> there seems to be a double standard with the clintons.
11:36 pm
was pressured not to advise to bring charges? >> we know he was pressured not to go public. we're reading press accounts at the department of justice opposed -- >> you are implying he was pressured in july. you are implying he was pressured in july. do you believe this? >> i have had a great deal of respect for director comey for a number of years. we worked together on legislation to protect children on the internet. i've always found him to be that was just -- that was just troubling to come out and conclude what would have been a violation of the law for any other american, particularly any other member of the american armed forces, and to say she was simply extremely careless, i think was troubling to millions of americans. >> why do you think -- you truly believe he came to that conclusion based on pressure from others and not his own? he said it wasn't a close call. >> i wouldn't care to speculate about why he came to that conclusion.
11:37 pm
why there's a double standard when it comes to the clintons. no one is above the law. the american people believe in that principle. and the willingness of the fbi now to say we have found what -- >> you are calling the f bi's credibility into question by saying -- you are saying, clinton is being held to a different standard. >> i think the decision -- >> that isn't what the fbi is saying. >> chuck, this summer i think when the director of the fbi -- let's start again here. aftee the united states met with former president bill clinton in a secret meeting on an airplane, then the fbi made a decision that made no sense to millions of americans -- >> the attorney general recused h herself and said it was up to comey. you said you didn't want to speculate -- >> the director of the fbi
11:38 pm
that she had classified information on her server. she had e-mailed classified information. that's a violation of the law. the american people couldn't understand that decision. i think millions of americans are encouraged by the willingness of the fbi simply to say, we have new evidence. we're going to inform congress. we're going to proceed forward. we're confident they will do that in a professional way. >> let me ask you another topic. last week, donald trump pledged to sue every accuser out to make accusations about sexual misconduct. is that how he will spend his first 100 days in office, that he is going to do these lawsuits? is that advice you would give him? >> donald trump's laid out a plan for the first 100 days. it's the contract for the american voter. >> he is ruling out suing the folks? is he going to spend the first days of his presidency suing people? >> what i'm going to tell you is we're going to focus on reviving the economy, rebuilding the
11:39 pm
repealing obamacare, having smarter and tougher trade deals. we're going to make appointments to the supreme court of the united states that will hold our constitution. let me be clear -- >> last question. >> you used reinvigorate. before friday afternoon -- >> you were reinvigorated before friday? >> you know the momentum in this campaign was rolling in state after state. i'm seeing it everywhere i go. the american people are responding to donald trump's message of a stronger and more prosperous america. i believe we're going to put our head down and kick finish. >> on october 17, donald trump had to turn in his tax return this year. is he going to release it before the election? >> i think as soon as the audit is -- >> there's no audit on this return. they don't make those decisions that fast. >> he will release all of his tax returns when the final audit is completed. >> not before the election? >> look, the american people are focused on security and prosperity, on repealing obamacare, having a supreme
11:40 pm
that's why donald trump will be the next president of the united states. >> governor pence, appreciate your time. thanks for coming in. be safe on the campaign trail. >> you bet. thank you. when we come back, we will hear from the other side. clinton campaign manager robby mook joins me. welcome to the world 2116, you can fly across town in minutes or across the globe in under an hour. whole communities are living on mars and solar satellites provide earth with unlimited clean power. to space planes, across the universe and beyond. and if you thought that was amazing, you just wait.
11:41 pm
when it comes to healthcare, seconds can mean the difference between life and death. for partners in health, time is life. we have 18,000 people around the world. the microsoft cloud helps and work together in real time to help those that need it. the ability to collaborate changes how we work. what we do together changes how we live. welcome back. when james comey made his
11:42 pm
offensive. joining me now is hillary clinton's campaign manager robby mook. robby, welcome back to "meet the press." >> thanks, chuck. >> let me start with getting your -- to react to how democrats talked about james comey before friday. here it is. >> this is a great man. we are very privileged in our country to have him be the director of the fbi. >> n integrity, the competence. >> wonderful and tough career public servant. jim was in the u.s. attorney's office in the eastern district of virginia when i was the mayor of richmond. he is somebody with the highest standards of ining attegrity. >> tim kaine said it two weeks ago. does secretary clinton and
11:43 pm
>> i think the director does have a long and distinguished record. i think that's why people are particularly puzzled about this letter that was sent to the hill. first and foremost, it was three paragraphs. it didn't provide any details whatsoever. he said that there were some e-mails. he didn't know if they were significant or not. this letter was sent to leaders on the hill, unsurprisingly, it was leaked immediately by the republicans and leaked in a with a that mischaracterized small amount of information that was in the letter. all we're asking for now is let's just get all the information out there on the table. there's hypotheticals flying all over the place. and i think what's particularly surprising is yahoo! news reported last night that director comey may not have even seen any of the information in the e-mails before putting out the letter. so to send a letter to congress saying we may have information,
11:44 pm
significant without looking at what's inside, ten, 11 days before a president yaial electi it's very curious. >> john podesta wrote, he said by being vague, tomorrowy comeye door to conspiracy theories. there's fund-raising for trump and his team. do you think comey put the finger on the scale for donald trump? >> well, i think the issue here i doesn't come out and get all the information on the table, anyone, any conspiracy theory take the day. i will say, we have seen a surge of activity on our side as well. we had our best saturday of fund-raising ever yesterday. we had over 50,000 volunteers out knocking on doors and turning our supporters out to the polls. we actually felt a surge of support and momentum as well. so we're feeling fine in that regard. but again, let's just get all the information out there so
11:45 pm
rest. again, we're hearing a lot of criticism now from former justice department officials, from former clinton, former bush administration, pointing out this is unprecedented. there are justice department policies against doing something like this so close to an election. >> there's an easy way for you to clear some of this up. huma abedin is a vice chair of the campaign. she may -- does she have access to her e-mails now? can she -- have you been through them? can r yourself? why wait for director comey to do it? >> i'm glad you asked this question. first of all, director comey hasn't said whose e-mails these are. for us to take any action before he clarified or before anybody reached out to huma abedin from the justice department, that would be totally premature. that's the first thing. the second thing is they claim they have whatever this information is. so it's going to be incumbent on them to release it. lastly, huma abedin cooperated
11:46 pm
people can read the 302 summaries of the interviews of her. they were all released to the public at our request. if these are e-mails from huma abedin, we don't flow know if t are, we assume they are redundant because she turned over her e-mails. that's why we're frustrated. >> let me ask you this. do you know -- campaigns, you know, the first rule of crisis management is know all the facts. do you know all the the e-mails, that you know everything in this? have you seen any of these e-mails? >> i'm glad you asked this question. we don't know all the facts, because the fbi has said basically nothing in this letter. we don't know whose e-mails they are talking about. we don't know how many. according to yahoo! news, director comey doesn't know either. he hasn't seen the information. he decided to put out a letter to congress without any
11:47 pm
i think that's why criticism is coming in from democratic and republican officials. >> are you confident huma abedin has been 100% forthcoming to you and secretary clinton? >> the justice department confirmed that she was totally cooperative, all of the summaries of the interviews she gave are out there in the public. she has cooperated fully. >> i understand you said that. i'm talking about you and the campaign. do you feel as if she -- you feel like you have all the facts? >> i feel i have all the facts because all the facts were put out there. the summaries of the interviews the justice department said that huma fully cooperated. that's why we are so puzzled right now. just put the information out there so we can put this to rest. this campaign is supposed to be about the american people and their lives and what the next president is going to do for them. this is clouding our ability to talk about this. >> do you believe this could cost you the election? >> i don't think so.
11:48 pm
out there. we are seeing record early voting numbers in north carolina, florida. look, i would wager in nevada, turnout is so strong among democrats there, hillary could build an insurmountable lead in the coming days in nevada. we're feeling really good about this record turnout, over 200 million people in our country registered to vote, 50 million of those are young people. nose to the grind stone. people should not take anything for granted. we will have to work hard to earn this. >> for hillary clinton, thanks for sharing your views. appreciate you coming on. >> thanks, chuck. when we come back, much more on this e-mail story. plus our brand-new poll numbers from two states donald trump has to have. later, the man who might help turn utah blue or is it green? it's some color that isn't red. evan mcmullin will join [tv debate chatter]

there he goes with the tax cuts. >> pro republican senate to get tax cuts. >> andrea, let me start with you. it's unprecedented. you and i have covered this atttown a long time. to see james comey come under fire. now the fbi's reputation is at stake. >> it is. this is the worst possible situation for the fbi, for the country, for hillary clinton certainly. nuclear on comey yesterday was a deliberate decision. they're trying to rally the base. she did this in daytona. she did this going then to an historically african-american college and had a huge rally there on the football field. she's really now taking this to comey. and they made a deliberate decision to do this. if she's elected, she has to live with james comey who has a ten-year term. that is a very hostile situation
11:53 pm
let me point out, john kerry in ireland said he has not been notified. comey did not know what these e-ls werendwhether they were work-related. that is the question that is raising so many concerns. >> go ahead. >> to andrea's point, i agree with the first part. what i'm hearing from everybody -- i have sources in the fbi and former district attorneys. the fbi is in full revolt. the since the decisions last summer. >> not full revolt. let's not say full revolt. >> semi-full revolt. what i'm getting at is, if comey hadn't said what he said to congress and the rest of the world, it would have leaked. it would have leaked. that whole building was ready to leak they discovered this new source with wiener and abedin. so i don't think comey had much chance here.
11:54 pm
now. the criticism is coming from the way he has handled this case from the beginning. >> i think it's interesting hearing mike pence talk a few minutes ago. essentially what he was saying is, where there's smoke -- even if there's no fire, there's a tendency to say, with the clintonsre's always smoke. kept that there always seems to be something with these people. it has given them a closing argument. a closing argument that's not the end of democracy, basically. it again. if you go back to july, the things comey said in the press conference could have been cut into ads. if the campaign wasn't so busy tripping over trump's mistakes, this is what they could have focused on. >> do you think -- you are -- you have been around this town a long time. do you think comey will feel the pressure and feel as if he does need to fill in the blanks? >> he seems to be a guy to make press when he thinks he is under
11:55 pm
the speculation machine and everywhere else will go into hyperdrive. he will have to say something about, we're checking these e-mails for duplicates, the stuff we have. something to tamp it down a little until they know what's real. he is in a horrible possible. >> donald trump was in new hampshire, took the stage and said, illegal, misconduct, she should be in jail. you heard the lock her up he could have said, this is not an investigation. this is just finding out. he could have said, there's nothing criminal here. he could have put in, we don't know. we have seen not seen e-mails, which has been reported. >> that's a key point. >> we don't know if they are personal. he could have said these things. the fact that he wrote that letter -- now all of these senate ranking members saying, you have to be more specific. >> i don't think the letter was as artful as it could have been. >> you think?
11:56 pm
having said all that, the bizarre part of this story -- it's going to be bizarre until the election. the democrats loved comey last summer. the republicans love comey right now. it's going to be a standoff. i don't think much is going to come out of this new. but i want to go back to this point. loretta lynch and the meeting with bill clinton has damaged the justice department, whether that's fair or not. now with regards to the fbi, you have a split. comey's own assistant director, his deputy director was involved. his wife is running for the state senate in virginia. >> it's a lot -- that's a lot of innuendo. >> and it was hillary who raised the money to finance the campaign. >> you are making a lot after sum gss. >> but in the public eye, chuck, these things all come out. >> i get the perception.
11:57 pm
perception -- >> the big irger politics are w we are going to do. the campaigns live in fear of the last seven days. the clinton people, i think, ticked off the great and vengeful god of campaigns. now they have this. it's about hillary for a while. it's not a bad idea to have huma call for transparency. >> do you think that could -- do you think the clinton -- >> for last few months, we have learned any time one of them is under the spotlight, they g they don't look good. there's never a time they're in the spotlight and people say, i think i like that person after all. >> why doesn't huma say, here are the e-mails? >> a staffer with a press conf conference? >> crowd source it. put it out there. >> here they are. >> she doesn't know what's on the laptop. >> how did it get to wiener? >> a moment of silence for that. he is the patron saint of bad news. >> how does hillary e-mails --
11:58 pm
it's like -- >> all right. i'm going to pause it here. i gotta call a time-out. move on and pay for this program a little bit. we'll be back in a moment with the obama voters who are saying no to hillary clinton and why this could have big implications for elections going forward. this car is traveling over 200 miles per hour. to win, every millisecond matters. both on the track and thousands of miles away.
