tv The Beat With Ari Melber MSNBC May 24, 2019 3:00pm-4:00pm PDT
that's all i have for tonight. we'll be back with more "meet the press daily." if it's sunday, it's "meet the press." we'll get into the democratic debate over impeachment. hearing both sides of that and the growing feud between the president and speaker pelosi. "the beat" starts right now. good evening. >> good evening. thank you. we have a lot to get on this friday night. we begin with this debate in washington and living rooms across the country. whether or not it would be time on impeach the president of the united states. consider this new reporting from nbc news. at least 38 house democrats now calling for democrats to begin impeachment proceedings. that would be before impeaching president trump but it would be quite the step. signs they are not alone, today former republican congressman joins the only serving house member to say that donald trump in their view commit impeachable offenses. calling to impeach on a now esay
saying our very survival is at risk. all of this after a wild week of escalating tensions over impeachment. >> if don mcgahn doesn't tefrgs it is time on open an inquiry. >> key democrats pressed house speaker nancy pelosi to move forward with an impeachment inquiry. >> this is no longer about politics but upholding the rule of law. >> we believe the president of the united states is engaged in a cover-up. >> i walk in to look at people that have just said that i was doing a cover-up. i don't do cover-ups. the i-word. the i-word. can you imagine? >> the house democratic caucus does not want to pass to impeachment and that's where he want us to be. >> she says that you want to be impeached. do you want to be impeached? >> i don't think anyone wants to be impeached. >> a big question tonight, how much longer can democratic leaders hold off if the rank and file aided by these new
republican voices in the wilderness are backing impeachment or impeachment hearings. what will they hear from the man who could be their star witness? bob mueller. >> mueller, i think i can say at this point that he wants to testify in private. >> why? >> i don't know why. he wants -- he's willing to make an opening statement. we're saying that we think it is important for the american people to hear from him and to hear his answers to questions about the report. >> that's some news. in a moment i'll speak about all of this with the democratic members of congress who is leading the charge for pee impeachment. we begin first, and political science professor at fordham. has pelosi on this wild week done enough in your view to held to line or are we seeing a slow
but steady march than just a war of words? >> i think we're seeing the steady march toward impeachment. obviously nancy pelosi is a sceniced legislator and she was around in the 1990s when bill clinton was impeached. i think what is frustrating for many democrats who want impeachment, especially some of the newer, younger democrats calling for impeachment. they're saying, this is not the 1990s. donald trump is not president clinton. the circumstances are completely different. we were looking at something where in the late '90s, president clinton, his wife, other entities, we were not looking at full widespread corruption and possibly the destruction of american democracy in our institutions. the democrats saw how republicans were punished post impeachment. i don't think that we're in that scenario and that situation. so this is why so many democrats slowly but surely are saying, this is something we must do. we don't know if our democracy
can survive another two to six years of a trump presidency. and a six fantic republican congress that is signing everything he does. now we see the doj working for the president and not the constitution. >> you mentioned the doj. that's an important point. if you look at what christina is saying, it is not like things just stay the same. it is not that pelosi is holding the line and saying, this is as bad as it gets in the view of the democrats. a lot of experts and progressives and some republicans, as i showed, are saying, well, it's been neutral. because the trump justice department is barreling forward trying to investigate the investigators. the president of the united states is falsely arguably in a defamatory way accusing former investigators of treason. so with that in mind, does more need to be done on house side? >> yeah.
i think it does. for all the reasons that she said. but in addition to your point, donald trump is using the tools available to him as president. as the world's most powerful person for his own personal gain. that's essentially what he's asked william barr to do. in giving him this unprecedented power in terms of declassifying national security. and you know, if you go back to what impeachment represents, at least the process for congress to try to determine whether or what articles of impeachment it might write up. that's the process. the hearing process. this is the same one we've seen in the report that was already spun in a way that confused the american public about what robert mueller found including
explicitly saying, significant evidence of obstruction of justice. but also, this is the same president that overrode national security clearances for 25 people in the white house when then you should decline these. some of those being his family members. so the point about, you know, the history of impeachment in this country, what the underpinning of the constitution is, is not about whether or not the president could be convicted of a crime. it is maladministration. it is abuse of power. and congress has to, if it is going on uphold the constitutional obligation, it has to actually consider and look at the evidence to consider whether or not to have articles of impeachment. just one other quick point that i think is so interesting in the polling. a reason poll that just came out showed that even while americans
are saying, i don't know if congress should impeach. there are also 73% are saying they want to hear from rob mueller. and 66% are saying, they want to hear from don mcgahn. that doesn't sound like the american people think has the doover. >> interesting. both of you hang with me. i want to turn to one of these members of congress as we've been discussing the fight. he introduced impeachment the. >> the i believe that they will. but it depends on what you mean by near future. i think so. i think we're on the right path. >> if that's the case, when would that begin in your view? would that mean the speaker has hanned this wrongly?
>> are you speaking to me, sir? >> oh. yes. i'm being told we're having audio issues and that's on me. i'll repeat the question. thank you for coming. on i was playing that sound of you. we heard briefly you in the hallway talking about the potential impeachment proceedings coming 6:00. i put the question to you, what does soon mean? does that mean the speaker has hanned this in your view, wrongly? >> well, thank you for the question. sir, we are at the cross roads of accountability. these are the cross roads for the house of representatives. either we will hold the president accountable, or we will be held accountable. it is that simple. we are part of the issue being litigated in the court of public opinion. and whether or not we will handle this appropriately depends on where we will put
politics above principle. if we put politics above principle, we will be held accountable. if we put party above people. we'll be held accountable. if we put the president above the law, we'll be held accountable of there's no middle ground here. >> you put i so clearly there. i think some viewers listening would say wow, that sounds so straightforward. whether we name them or not. there are colleagues of yours, teammates of yours staying opposite. they're saying if it doesn't get through senate. if you cannot win over republicans. i think you're referring to politics. then it is not even worth starting. why is that wrong? >> i don't say they're wrong. i think people are entitled to their opinions. this started some time ago. some two years ago. and quite frankly, i was alone in this process for a good deal of the time.
it's better to stand alone than not stand at all. there are many people believing we should stand in the process. there will be a majority of the people in the house of representatives who will not allow this impeachment movement to be just talking points. they will put principle above politics. i believe we're moving in the right direction. and there are people who currently are not quite there. but i think history is driving this now. you know, people make history and sometimes history will make people. i think history will make a lot of people have second thoughts about positions they've held and i think they'll come on board. >> while i have you, i want to ask about the other big news. chairman nadler telling rachel maddow last night that they're moving toward potentially private bob mueller testimony. so my question to you is, if this is so important for public fact, if it is the house and the
house' subpoena power we've heard so much about, should not the house decide what is the best course and not the witness? do you think mr. mueller should take questions in public? >> mr. melber, i have already indicated that we don't have to have testimony. what was given to us by the special counsel, what was given to us is more than enough. the mueller report lays it out. and we've had over 800 former federal prosecutors to say if this were anyone other than the president, the person would be prosecuted. i believe we have enough evidence to go forward without mr. mueller. i think it work beneficial to get his testimony and in the presence of the public. transparency would be good. i won't quarrel with him if he wants to do it behind closed
doors after having made a statement. the important thing on remember is, that mr. comey was fired for investigating the president. and the president confessed to that. mr. mueller investigated it. he started with that as the genesis. and he has concluded that he cannot indict the president because of a standing policy. by also indicated, he was not exonerated and gave us some ten or more reasons why obstruction may have taken place. for us to move on. i think to be very honest with you, mr. mueller is an honorable man and he understands the framers of the constitution intended that congress do its job. we have to have the will, the framers have given us a way. if we don't do our job, here's what will happen. the balance of power as we see it in this country, will be shifted. we will have a president who doesn't have a check on him. when we don't check him, he will assume more authority, more
power, and he will assume the power of a monarch. we don't want a monarchy. we want democracy in the united states of manager. >> i think that's well put. to distill it, either you check the president or congress he knows up checking itself. stay with me. i want to bring in a transition staffer who quit over some policy differences and now is also calling for impeachment. i don't think it is every day that someone in your position and congressman green's position would be exactly on the same page but it is the trump era. explain how you got here. >> yeah. in fact i testified in front of recommendive green and we don't often agree. i got here because i read the mueller report of the it is clear the president engaged in obstruction, up to 12 counts and was possibly even successful in hiding the truthful there are still messages, what's app messages we haven't seen because they've been delete.
and i got here. it's clear to me, the emperor has no clothes. let's put it that way. and it is surprising to me i don't have more of my former colleagues in the republican caucus on the him speaking out. hope any more will come language but i think we ned more leadership as well. it's time for impeachment. >> may i respond? >> go ahead, yes. i concur. i think he is eminently correct. that was party lines in the senate and a handful of democrats in the house. those who want this to become a walk in the park are sadly mistaken. the framers of the constitution indicated that it would not be something that would be easy to do. but that's why we have the jobs. because we do the difficult things.
it is going to be divisive. that's understandable of but this constitution, this country can survive impeachment. we survived with it clinton. we survived with it andrew johnson. and if we don't do it, the congress will become a toothless paper tiger for those who don't understand the process, the court, where the president will be tried, is the senate with the chief justice presiding. the chief justice. all of these subpoenas that we want, we can get them through chief justice roberts. we will have a trial there. there will be prosecutors from the house called managers and they can get all of this evidence. that court is an inferior court when it comes to the question of impeachment. >> i'm only interjected. essential i invited jw on, i want to get him on one more time. the president clearly has decided that maximum stone walling and maximum impact is his way forward.
based on your unique knowledge, do you think anything will move him? or does he look at a weak like this politically as exactly what he wanted? >> that i think the next shoe to drop will be maxine waters' investigation of the deutsche bank documents. she's already won at the district court level. having been someone who wrote subpoenas for the committee, for the republican chairman who preceded her, they're squarely in their rights to get documents and that will be the next shoe to drop. that speaks to frankly, very directly, the mueller report. remember one reason he was danging pardons in front of michael cohen was to stop cohen from revealing previous instances of bank fraud and who knows what else with deutsche bank. so it is all inconnected. >> fascinating. as i mentioned, i have to fit in a break. thanks to each of you for joining me.
>> i thank you. >> we have a lot more ahead. a top democrat warning about donald trump's move. and then this magazine cover is going viral for a reason. roasting barr and others as shining lackeys. meanwhile, speaker pelosi responding to a very new propaganda campaign. this is 21 century stuff. we'll show you how to be on guard so you don't get fooled. and abortion rights and john flannery on fallback friday. fr♪ (announcer) people with type 2 diabetes are excited about the potential of once-weekly ozempic®. in a study with ozempic®, a majority of adults lowered their blood sugar and reached an a1c of less than seven and maintained it. oh! under seven? and you may lose weight. in the same one-year study, adults lost on average up to 12 pounds. oh! up to 12 pounds? a two-year study showed

under u.s. law, the cia and intelligence agencies make the big calls on intelligence. they can only be overruled by the president until today. this just changed in a profound way because president trump has handed off his own intelligence powers to a cabinet official and it is not one in the intelligence agencies or one overseeing the military. the president is handing off his own union unitary powers. certainly one of trump's favorites. i'm talking about of course attorney general bill barr. who as of today may now override the expertise and nonpartisan
judgments. why dissuddenly get this power which has never been taken from the intelligence agencies before? i'll tell you the anxious. on this one, it is a pretty cheer story line. the white housement is even claiming this is for national security or a forward looking policy to serve the public. the white house admits, this is all about strengthening barr's hand and reviewing the mueller probe. and he is in favor with trump for saying things about that probe like this. >> it is a very unusual situation to have opposition research like that to conduct counter intelligence against an american political campaign is a strange, it would be a strange development. i think there were some very strange developments. >> this is not normal. if he can only agree with the calls, then this apparently shift or power grab wouldn't
change what becomes public. so later we would look back on tonight and say maybe it was pointless. meaning why do it at all. the other option is that bar overrides them. and then we may be headed for an epic clash between what trump's own intel thinks and what mr. barr thinks is necessary to undercut moou. democrats are upset and leaders say it is corrupt. is this a substantively solid idea? >> this is a horrible idea. >> you can almost see if a president wanted to delegate these classification responsibilities to, for example, the director of national intelligence.
a dan coats. and you know what? i hope we can all agree he has been maybe a pinpoint of light in an otherwise really dark and corrupt administration. but he's an intel guy. and he is the person who can make these difficult calls of what can be declassified, what can be made public, and what, you know, how we can best avoid risking the safety of our overseas assets. to give this to barr when he is saying he's happy to do this. >> we have as you say, coats overseas everything. these battles doing on. and sometimes in disagreement. but this is not like getting a second agreement from a doctor. this is like getting a second opinion from rudolph giuliani on your heart surgery.
this is like asking your dentist about whether you need heart surgery. this is apples and oranges and the apples are rotten. we've seen the pattern of barr saying and doing anything. no obstruction, no collusion. whether it is the mueller report, spying, no evidence of illegal conduct for article by our law enforcement or intelligence committees. sometimes it really captures it. this is the shoe shining. and the difference in this picture that i would like you to speak to. they are political figures. they can get on their knees and shine shoes or get up. they're political. is there something wrong with mr. barr being in that same
category, given his constitutional allegations? >> yeah. there is. as the head of basically law enforcement, he is assisting in with th weaponizing. from all the evidence of felony offense that's we now know the president committed. this is just ratcheting up the highlights how congress's timidity and not moving forward will continue to inure to the detriment of the american people. >> taking a turn to a totally different and new story, donald trump and speaker pelosi. she is responding. a new war of propaganda. we'll tell you how to you respond against it. how to you respond against it
i'm begging you... take gas-x. your tossing and turning isn't restlessness, it's gas! gas-x relieves pressure, bloating and discomfort... fast! so we can all sleep easier tonight. a doctor going totally viral online. these highly edited clips. this starts with pelosi rattling donald trump politically, you may have heard about that. i want to show you something here. take a look at the real video that started this.
>> we want to give this president the opportunity to do something historic for our country. the fact is, something happened there. so i pray for him and i pray for the united states of america. >> so that's what the speaker said. people can take it or disagree with it. for purposes of truth, i'm going to show you briefly what a new political group is doing. these are opponents of pelosi altering the video to make it sound like she was somehow slurring her words. this propaganda, meaning this version of something that didn't actually happen the way it is present, has already gotten over 2 million views online. so i'm entering this as an informational inoculation so you and your friends or anyone you talk to, if they are talking about this, this is what is happening online with propaganda
and this is not the whole story. take a look. >> we want to give this president the opportunity to do something historic for our country. the fact is, something happened there. so i pray for him and i pray for the united states of america. >> in a way, you can argue it is subtle. take a look at what's happening. after donald trump says pelosi is a mess who lost it. meaning there's a larger arc of trying the discredit her as somehow not all there. trump last night retweets a fox business segment that has a video montage. it is not slowed down but it is edited together to somehow imply that she is stumbling over her words. >> custody of the border patrol -- border.
everyone started making -- sending signals -- the u.s., canada, mexico. that's not -- some people call it nafta, some call it 2.0, working together to -- [ stuttering ] >> the three things, the three things, the three things. we're very busy people. >> this is a bit of a new step in information political warfare. and it is a way that vi ed itting and online sharing and all the stuff we keep hearing about is reinforcing a political message from the top. donald trump the president was asked about all of this today.
>> excuse me. this shows how fake you and the news are. when you say a personal attack, did you hear what she said about me long before i went after her? she said terrible things. so i just responded in kind. do you think nancy is the same as she was? she's not. >> the spread of propaganda and right wing propaganda. good evening to both of you. >> i want to start with the fairest assessment which was said in that video. when he asserts that both he and speaker pelosi exchanging very personal and heated attacks, i think that's true. when he says it is the journalists who are quote/unquote fake. when they are the ones pushing these, i would say the subtly,
only lightly edited but misleading and fake material of he is trying to once again flip it. what is your analysis and important for viewers to know if we're going into a campaign season, we'll see more and more of this, pardon the term, crap. >> right. the one thing donald trump has latched on to is the idea that this is fake news. he is spreading fake news. he is spreading propaganda, conspiracy theories that has been edited and shifted. and he's used his platform in a way that has spread misinformation to millions of people and continues to spread even after the video has been debunked repeatedly. the important thing for people to recognize, the rules of engagement have changed. there have always been dirty tricks and presidential campaigns. we have the leader of the free
world operating by a different set of rules, different set of beliefs and vs that suggest using this information in kind of this viral sense. in spreading to his platform is perfectly legitimate for other people. but not for him. and the criticism of this is to be critiques and to be attacked as a means of accountability. the other thing to keep in mind how unprepared social media platforms are for this misinformation. particularly in the lead-up to the 2020 campaign. >> the saying, life comes ought fast. the internet comes ought faster. loyal viewers may know, i sat down with congressman schiff this week. while we talked about some of the big headlines, i also asked him about upcoming hearings and how fortune governments can use
deep fakes. it involves these completely orchestrated videos. they might do it to attack the u.s. for your analysis, before the story broke, take a look at his answer. >> going forward into the next election, there is new technology called deep fake technology that allows to you produce and very inexpensively, highly real i havic, almost indistinguishable from real, fake video and fake audio. the ability to show the public that this is false would be almost impossible. it is hard to imagine something more corrosive to a democracy in which an environment in which the truth doesn't matter anymore. >> if it is scary or depressing, what do you say about how to not get fooled? >> it is going to be hard. i saw the audio technology a couple years ago.
it is scary. to a certain sentence, you will need context and you will need a generation of news deliverers, or reporters, or outlets that are arbiters of this stuff. facebook has refused to take down the most video. that makes sense. it can be a comedy video or something like that. but it really is problematic when you have the president who is basically pushing this line and then has an entire network that is also pushing this line. you mentioned fox business. it was all over fox and friends this morning. they were talking about this entire push to make nancy pelosi look like she's losing her mind. losing her step. i think it is going to involve citizens fleeng a little more on
this stuff. frankly, i think that will be a big problem. >> do you think it can change eventually the culture of how we get information? speed is so important. could we get to a point where people say, yeah. i saw that. i heard about that. i'm going to wait until tomorrow and find out from the fact checkers whether or not it is even real . >> i think the hardest thing is people's habits and the way they digest with it. in 30 years, i think people will be significantly more sophisticated about this stuff. but right now, we're still as consumers of news and information, we are still operating in sort of a pre fakery, pre social media world. i think we're catching up. the younger generation may have more skill in deciphering this
but it a problem. >> briefly, your students rfrlt they prepped for this? >> my students are well prepared. in part, because part of what our role is as educators, teaching students critical analysis and thinking skills. chief amongst them. be skeptical of your sources. know your sources. if it seems suspicious, too good to be true. a little bit off. look at the original source. even when it doesn't. even when things seem to line up. look at who is distributing this and what is the context around it? >> thank you so much. we'll take a turn coming up. controversy over a very real video. police arresting this 12-year-old, covering his head with a so-called spit mask. stay with us. spit mask stay with us rather than worry about how to pay for long-term care. brighthouse smartcare℠ is a hybrid life insurance and

tonight video of the trofls arrest of a 12-year-old boy in sacramento included the use of a so-called spit mask is going viral and sparking very serious concerns. the faeb video is recorded from a bystander's camera. officers handcuffed him outside a store. police alleged trespassing and stealing. >> what i am a you said arrest for? >> relax, dude. >> look. >> what am i under arrest for? >> a private security guard can be seen telling the police that the child was trespassing and asking shoppers to buy things for him which the family denies. he was put on the ground, the boy using profanity and appears to admitting to spitting on the officer.
>> that is important context, the officers say. for what has become one of the most controversial parts of the vi. the use of the spit mask over the boy's head. >> take this bag off my head. take this bag off my head. take this bag off my head. >> i'm joined by mark harris, the attorney recommending the child's family. good evening to you. is this a case in your view about excessive force and escalation by the police regardless of any underlying offense in or do you view it as more important because you say the boy did nothing wrong? >> thank you for having me on the show. there is no underlying offense. there is no underlying offense.
the police story has changed several times since this whole thing occurred on easter sunday evening. my client was attending a carnival. a neighborhood carnival with his family and an adult chaperone. he was asked to go to the adult chaperone's car and remove some chains to bring to the carnival which is what he was doing when he was confronted by the security guard. the security guard then came up with this whole cockamamy story about why he confronted my china in the first place. and i think honestly, this 12-year-old was sub to existing while black. t attending a carnival while black. for this story to change as many times as it has. first they said he was stealing. not true. then then he was asking for money. not true. if they have any shred of evidence to prove either of those, i would stand corrected. that's not what happened. he was singled out and treated inappropriately. >> when you look at this and the
wider cases viewers are familiar with around the country that range in the level of escalation, what is your message to police who in some cases, are being accused of targeting and escalating situations with black men, and i 12-year-old black boy, i guess. i would say this. it is on the side of police car doors. to protect and to serve. in this situation they served up this young man and exacerbated the situation when his mother, la toya downs showed up. they treated her disrespectfully. she saw her son in the back of a police car in a bag saying i can't breathe. they refused to take bag off. >> i'm short on time. you mentioned the mother is your client. and i know that was powerful. let's listen to her voice here. >> please. >> he's a boy. you all scared him.
do you know how many times he got in front of officers and they've been racial to him? you don't know that. you need to come out and talk to the kids. you need to more communicate with the kids. because they're scared. >> in a sentence or two, where do we go from here? >> i've been in direct communication with the mayor of sacramento. we're trying on work some things through of it is humanity. i hope the city of sacramento understands, this is a matter of humanity when we're dealing with a child. >> thank you so much. we'll fit in a break. when we come back, i am very excited to have tee degreesley and john flannery. d john flanne. ♪
