tv   Hardball With Chris Matthews  MSNBC  June 6, 2019 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT

4:00 pm
baker and a special fall back, the king of funk, george clinton and nick kristoff. excited to have them on together. that does it for the beat. don't go anywhere. "hardball" with chris matthews is up next. i want to see him in prison. let's play "hardball." >> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. those words were about the president of the united states. i want to see him in prison. politico is reporting on sides night, naps clancy pelosi clashh jerry nadler about how to hold the president accountable. unhappy, nadler pressed pelosi to launch impeachment inquiry and was rebuffed by the speaker
4:01 pm
according to unname the sources. pelosi's response was she didn't want to him peach, she wanted him in prison. she wants him defeated and prosecuted under the law. with 59 members of congress who expressed support, here's what chairman nadler said in an interview yesterday. >> why not now? what's the problem if you start it right now and begin the process, you are going to go ahead with investigations to begin with. >> right now it doesn't appear to be the support for it. >> in your committee or among the democrats in the house? >> i'm not going to get into that, but there does not appear to be support for it now and we will see the support may develop. >> they delivered politically charged remarks in front of graves of service members. the president put decorum aside and attacked speaker pelosi and
4:02 pm
robert mueller. >> do you mind if he testifies. you said he didn't care. >> he made such a fool out of himself the last time because what people don't report is the letter he had to do to straighten out his testimony because his testimony was wrong. nancy pelosi, i call her nervous nancy. nancy pelosi doesn't talk about it. nancy pelosi is a disaster. she is a disaster. let her do what she wants. they are in big trouble. >> this comes as politico reports that robert mueller could be subpoenaed in the next two weeks. democrats are preparing a house resolution empowering their chairs to enforce the subpoenas that the white house said blocked at every turn. according to politico, it's a move to stream line and speed up the house's ability to respond to a mounting list of confrontations with the white house. i'm joined by shannon petty piece and joe crowley and former chair of the house democratic caucus, aaron blake is a senior reporter at "the washington
4:03 pm
post." thank you for joining us. i have never heard -- i sometimes think trump has brought deviation to the norm. the speaker is saying he ought to be in prison. imagine you live in a rinky dircdink country that doesn't have democracy. we have the leader saying the other guy is in prison. this is what we used to see in pakistan. defeat the guy and hang him. >> i think it's in politics rhetoric. pelosi is speaking to a number of wings within the party itself. i think she has to be heard to be strong on this. she is taking a slightly different tactic. >> in other words, she said she really doesn't like trump, that makes up for the fact she is not impeaching him. >> right. i have been saying all along, she doesn't believe in a banana republic. she believes elections have consequences.
4:04 pm
impeachment shouldn't be used every time a person doesn't like the president. you hear about it all the time. it's almost the norm. the other party tries to impeach them. what she is saying, stay the course, do your jobs and investigate and let the truth lead. >> she's not going to impeach. >> i read the second volume of the mueller report and it's pretty damning. >> i know what you think and i accept it, but i don't believe she will be for impeachment a year from now. all the reporting said she is delaying and saying i want to hear from one more witness and don mcgahn and ymueller. we have a front page story the next day that mcgahn said to fire mueller and he didn't follow-up. he didn't fire mueller. where is the case? i can see this coming apart. >> our reporting indicates that this prison comment was meant to mean more what you were saying that i don't want to impeach. let's find any other method than
4:05 pm
impeachment. indict him and put him in prison after he is out of office. >> she said i want him in prison. >> because she didn't want to impeach him. i believe it's i don't want to impeach him, i want him in prison. i will do anything other than impeach this president. >> that's not her choice. that's the choice of prosecutors and other people in the justice department. she may -- they may not have that decision to make if the president is reelected which a lot of people say is a 40, 50, 60% chance. the statute of limitations is going to run on most of the federal crimes that they can charge him with. how are you going to get him in prison if you can't charge him after that term? >> you can always impeach him in the second term. >> yes. >> everybody is a pundit and wait until the second term to impeach him. that would lose a lot by then.
4:06 pm
>> i guess that is. >> twice elect the guy and then impeach him? >> that's what happened to nixon in his second term. >> the calculus is there is not going to be impeachment. they don't think there is enough support and i don't know if they are correct, but the democrats are not going to impeach because they don't have the votes. not because they don't think the president committed the crime. because there is not the support. >> i think pelosi is the smartest speaker we have ever had in so many ways. she is calculating the following. remember the opening scene in gone with the wind where there is a cheer going war with the yankees? he calls them the impeachment
4:07 pm
democr democrats. every day he dances on the graves and wins. >> it seems to be his game plan. i think what's lacking is character and integrity and pelosi has it in droves. they should be able to keep this caucus together and behind her in this. they believe in her. she has more a situation and it's a testament. can she keep it where it is now? >> i think she can. >> what are pressure is on chairman nadler? he is getting pressure i assume from the newer members like all of them and also getting pressure from the boss. >> here's a guy who voted for the iran deal. why it matters. the newish american himself, the largest supporter by jewish america and took that against the primary.
4:08 pm
>> jerry is a tough guy and doesn't believe in using the justice system to persecute. even this president. he believes he will follow the law and again, follow the truth. let the truth come out and let it lead where it goes. >> he can continue doing indictments and contempt and hearings and showing that wing of the party we are doing something and exposing this. we are embarrassing the president. he continues to paint it without having to go the impeachment route. they will accomplish the things they may want to accomplish. >> talk about what happened on tuesday with the rough meeting between her and the chairman. given the chance, nancy pelosi refused to comment on trump's possible impeachment while commemorating the heroes of d-day. she didn't play trump's game today. >> do you worry about the politics with impeachment and everything else on the table and how they can further divide us? >> again, with all due respect
4:09 pm
to your question, i'm not here to talk about impeachment. >> i have to wonder about the media. andrea is the best there is, but we probably shouldn't talk nasty boy politics in front of the graves. we have all been there. it's an astounding place to go and gravesites are something else and it is sacred ground. >> it's always that politics stops at the water's edge and that is doubly true in front of the cemetery. this eroded over the course of the last several years and i was looking when vice president biden was in latvia who made a dig at president trump running for the presidency talking about how he didn't respect nato and didn't understand article five. the president comes in and all bets are off. >> we will go over to arlington. >> you don't. i also think it was a softball for nancy.
4:10 pm
instead of attacking the president, she showed who she really is. the character comes through. this gach nancy an opportunity to show what she is made of. >> at least one 2020 candidate is talking about impeaching the president. here's elizabeth warren last night during chris hayes' town hall. >> donald trump as president delayed, deflected, moved, fired, and did everything he could to obstruct justice. if he were any other person in the united states, based on what's documented in that report, he would be carried out in handcuffs. >> shannon, there you see the divide between the responsibility of the speaker and the chairs of the committee and the road show. the road show is to speak to the animated activated energetic left of the democratic party out
4:11 pm
for blood. >> elizabeth warren i think many people forgot she was running and she came out strong on impeachment. one of the first candidates to come out strongly and we have seen her star rise. >> go through the whole thing. bernie is not doing that. >> no. >> she's catching up. >> i feel like a month of ago, i was not hearing people talk about her. it was that bernie had the left wing of the party locked up and now people said they were in oakland and saw this crowd and elizabeth warren's event. she has been a leader among the 2020 candidates and that helped her. >> i'm watching her and if you are willing to burn yore bridges to the little for the next year and go hard left on something so emotional getting rid of this president and the people like the progressives or liberals or people on the left are so angry, they want it over with. when are we going to get rid of
4:12 pm
this guy? >> i saw that clip and it almost looks like she is planning this to put in a campaign ad down the line. i wouldn't be surprised, but what she is being smart about is doing that. she came out early. >> couldn't bernie do this? >> she has the i have a plan thing. she has proposals and people are accusing joe biden of being a one-note candidate. all can't trump. she is doing this thing that biden is doing, but also providing very detailed things that liberal voters can look at and say i would like this person even if she was not anti-trump. >> sail and cargo as i say in politics. you have to have the sale which is the timeout asale. one standard.
4:13 pm
can they carry pennsylvania? with her i don't know. biden could. i think kamala could. riskier, but in the end, it will be on conditions and how -- >> what i heard about elizabeth warren is that she has a good message. a message that resonates. it's the messenger. >> that's your point of cargo. if you are the anti-trump candidate and say you get elected. trump is gone. then what are you. that question comes about. >> if you are running on the hard left and have medicare for all, you confront mitch mcconnell with nothing to get anything done. nothing. that's a possibility. your cargo is dumped. >> michigan and pennsylvania and wisconsin is all that matters. so far. >> former congressman joe crowley of new york and shannon pet et piece. the two phases of president trump. one is okay and one is awful. the president got all his lines
4:14 pm
right about the hereofo, but special counsel robert mueller and bet midler at 1:30 in the morning london time. he has bette midler on his mind. what's going on with this guy? he turns it into a star spangled maga rally. much more after this. stick with us. much more after this stick with us. and it really shows. with all that usaa offers why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. it was funny because when we would call another insurance company, hey would say "oh we can't beat usaa" we're the webber family. we're the tenney's we're the hayles, and we're usaa members for life. ♪ get your usaa auto insurance quote today. ♪ what is that?

4:18 pm
on the 75th anniversary of d-day, 150,000 troops stormed the beaches of normandy, turning the tide of world war ii. he was joined by emmanuel macron living the invasion. trump paid tribute to the courage and sacrifice of the fighting men and enduring ties of the military alliance that went on to defeat the nazis. here he goes. >> to all of our friends and partners, our cherished alliance was forged in the heat of battle. tested in the trials of war and proven in the blessings of peace. our bond is unbreakable. to the men who sit behind me and to the boys who rest in the field before me, your example
4:19 pm
will never ever grow old. >> with that somber reflection, it was in stark contrast than the interview to fox news minutes earlier. minutes. using the head stones of the fallen heroes as a backdrop as he slammed nancy pelosi and other critics. it's in keeping with what the "new york times" called a split screen of a president, embracing regal respectability and settling scores on the other. he was hosted by queen elizabeth after calling london's mayor a stone cold loser on twitter. he fired off tweets in the middle of the night calling chuck schumer a creep and actress bette midler at 1:30 in the morning a washed up psycho. once again he flipped the switch, acting presidential at a commemoration event reading from franklin roosevelt's prayer the night before d-day.
4:20 pm
>> almighty god, our sons and part of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor. a struggle to preserve our republic, our religious, and our civilization and to set free a suffering humanity. >> for more, i'm joined by peter baker, correspondent with the new york times and nbc news historian and songs of america. let me start with john. john, do you think it's, let's say, plausible that the democrats will run against trump the way w ran against clinton. when i take the oath of office, i will uphold the dignity of the office. about monica and bill. do you think the democrats care that much about the dignity that you can run against this guy for what a clown he has been and his
4:21 pm
behavior in the last few days? >> i do. i think it's there for the picking. we have a situation where the president never pivoted. the incumbent president never moved from professional wrestler and provocateur to the person who in another phrase of franklin roosevelt's, the presidency which is a place of moral leadership. i think the case for dignity, the case for respect and empathy is going to be a huge part of this. the interesting question, of course, is whether that moves enough people. clearly the people who are with the president have long ago discounted or perhaps even worse, decide that they enjoy this bifurcated behavior. it's part of the show. so the question is, are there
4:22 pm
enough people in pennsylvania, michig michigan, ohio, wisconsin and florida who would like to have a president who acts and sounds like a president all the time, not just when he decides to try it. >> peter, i want to get to a fact check. he has his own problems, too. he's not perfect leader. he must have heard the president of the united states say yesterday or today in different times, we have this bond with europe. we have this bond that is unshakable. he called it a military bond. what's happening with the idea for months that trump since he took office is trashing our alliance with europe and the need to respect our allies and nato especially and he comes out and acts like i'm your best brother in the world and we have an unshakable bond with europe. >> imagine that. president trump is sometimes
4:23 pm
inconsistent. you will be surprised. he's not. what he would say is that they have differences on issues like trade and defense spending and so forth, but they can be close allies. it doesn't sound like that a lot of the time. when he badgers them on an issue that other presidents have had with europe about how much they contributed to the defense of europe in terms of nato. he does it in a way that is so personal and visceral that it doesn't sound like two allies, but it sounds like two adversaries who don't even like each other. he gets out there and mouths the words that have been scripted for him afor an event like this. the words you have to say. it does ring against the grain of the policies and adversarial approach. >> the president's dual personality was most evident as he discussed the bravery of the
4:24 pm
soldiers of d-day after downp y downplaying his own service during his interview with piers morgan yesterday. >> before the war, many had never ventured beyond their own community. now they had come to offer their lives half a world from home. they came wave after wave without question, without hesitation, and without complain. >> you were not able to serve in vietnam because of a bone spur condition in your feet. do you wish you had been able to serve. would you like to have served? >> i was never a fan that was war. i will be honest. it was a terrible war and very far away. you are talking about vietnam. at that time nobody ever heard of the country. >> um, john, you don't have to be a historian to recognize in 1968 when he got the deferment
4:25 pm
from the concierge doctor in manhattan, a tenant of his father who did it as a favor to know the vietnam war was the number one issue of the country and dividing our country like we can't believe even today and to say nobody ever heard of vietnam is absurd. >> it is. in 1968, the average casualty rate per day killed in action was 47. 47 americans died every day on average in 1968. it was the war that was one thing in 1966. the war was a different thing in '68-'69. it was a generational choice, but a lot of people didn't have a choice. a lot of people who didn't have the means and the ability to manipulate the draft or move out of the line of fire were those and people had to go in their place. we are still dealing with the
4:26 pm
very unamerican, unequal fallout from the inequality of the way the draft worked. >> you know, peter, back when i was a speech writer, the goal was to read what the president said. keep up with him. does trump's speech writers listen to what he says? there is no connection between what he said about d-day. it's not the same person talking. is a dodger and one is a patriot. >> he says look, i made up for it because in effect i gave the military a lot of money through the budget. that should take care of any issues that are out there. he is so pro military, he is saying it doesn't matter whether he personally served or not. he's not the first president to not have served in vietnam which is interesting. we have three of the last four presidents are vietnam-era
4:27 pm
generation and all three managed to avoid serving in vietnam. bill clinton of course avoided the draft and george w. bush served, but in the texas international guard at home. president trump had the bone spurs. americans used to think that was an important qualification. today they look at it differently. because of the a.mbivalence of vietnam, he can say one thing about vietnam and another about the d-day soldiers. >> they knew a democratic president with the bone spurs, they would never forgive him. never. up next, joe biden being separated from the rest of the democratic pack on the issue of federal funding for abortion. is government funding going to be a litmus test come 2020 or already? you are watching "hardball." ady? you are watching "hardball."

4:31 pm
welcome back to "hardball." former vice president joe biden is maintaining his status with a new poll from reuters showing him with double the support of his nearest rival, bernie sanders. challengers are looking for ways to chip away at the lead of his. on wednesday, yesterday, an
4:32 pm
opportunity presented itself when the biden campaign confirmed that the former senator, he was a senator for years, be continues to support the hyde amendment to prohibit the use of federal money for abortions. the hyde amendment was passed after roe v. wade and has been attached to every health appropriations bill since then. the challengers were quick to oppose his decision while mostly not hitting him personally. >> things like the hyde amendment is attacks on women and i will rip them down and empower women to have access to health care and the kinds of things that help them live healthy lives where they control their destinies and not a bunch of politicians. >> i hope that joe biden rethinks his position. perhaps he doesn't have all the facts and understand who the hyde amendment hurts most. again, it's lower income communities, communities of color. >> we do not pass laws that take
4:33 pm
away that freedom from the women who are most vulnerable. it has been the law for a while and it has been wrong for a long time. it really is just discrimination. >> historically, senators from both sides voted in favor of funding bills with the hyde language included with it. every current or former member of congress voted in favor of bills that do include the hyde amendment. eight cosponsored a bill that would repeal it. i'm joined by former republican congressman from florida and the senior director of progressive programming for sirius xm. how does it work in the next couple of weeks or days? >> i think this is a point of vulnerability for joe biden and eventually we may see him shift his position on the hyde amendment because of the pressure from the democratic base. this is an issue that came up in
4:34 pm
2016. hillary clinton was a staunch, staunch opponent of the hyde amendment and very vocal about repeal in the adopted platform at the convention because the democratic party right now has shifted on the issue. we understand that the hyde amendment essentially means two classes are women are in the united states. one class of women can afford abortion and they have access to all of their constitutionally-allowed health care options. poor women, women of color do not have the access and freedom to exercise rights. one in five american women of reproductive age are on medicaid. this is a lot of american women we are talking about. >> let's talk about the numbers. i'm looking at the number. 58% of the country at large, democrat, republican, independent, 58% are against using medicate or government money to pay for abortions. that's a decent majority.
4:35 pm
innocent with democrats who did this poll, 57%, another healthy majority are for it. congresswoman, what do you think of this trade off? it seems like if you look at this in political terms, biden is with the minority of 30 or 40% who are against the funding. the country as a whole is against it. what does that tell you as he goes from iowa to new hampshire to south carolina to california? >> joe biden is running an unconventional campaign for a primary. he is basically not apologizing about the fact that he is running as a conupon census builder and someone who wants to build a coalition to win in november. he's almost looking past the primaries. that's dangerous and the big question is whether the voters will tolerate where biden is not
4:36 pm
apologizing. he is owning the positions and he is basically announcing and making it clear that he is not going to change who he is. he has been a deal maker his whole career and he reached across the aisle and i think he is signalling here to a lot of those independent voters and the swing voters who will make the decision in november of next year as to who is going to be the next president that he is going to govern from the middle. again, this is dangerous and unconventional these days as both parties moved republicans to the right and democrats to the left. it's a dangerous strategy for a primary. we will have to see if democrats will tolerate this kind of approach. >> you think it will be a litmus test? >> i do think it will be somewhat of a litmus test. i'm not saying people will not support joe biden for this reason, but this goes to a litany of reasons why his candidacy is under such scrutiny. not because he is the
4:37 pm
front-runner, but he was in the senate for longer than i was alive and he has a record that doesn't jive with current views on many, many issues. not just race or abortion, but also criminal justice reform. >> congressman? >> i think joe biden's message to not just democrats, but to the country is that he wants to win in november. sure, that means sacrificing some of the decisions that would be made in a primary process. we know that there is a lot of pandering to the bases of each party in primaries. we have seen that a lot over the last decade. joe biden is saying i'm going to be principled and govern from the middle and i want to change. perhaps the change is to not go for the base strategy and to try to win the middle of the road voters. >> many were hurt by the policy. that's what the conversation the democratic base has right now. who is impacted by the policy and women of color are important
4:38 pm
in the constituency that biden will need in the primary and the general. >> strong and true words. tuesday the house judiciary health threats to reproductive rights in america. during the hearing, they went on after the republican member for wanting to impose his beliefs on other americans. take a look at this quote. >> the rhetoric from the ranking member of the subcommittee is heart felt and sincere. it is also arrogant that it seeks to impose his and certain other people's moral commitments on everybody else who go on people who share the moral opinions. the power of the state should not be used by one segment to impose the morally religious beliefs on other segment of society. >> congressman, i think you can argue that those words could be used just as well from people who believe that abortion is wrong morally.
4:39 pm
it's a grave moral consequence to them and they don't want their money or government supporting it by funding. it's the same way that a person who doesn't share a roman catholic belief about the unborn or fetus life or importance of life, you shouldn't be ignored and overlooked. this is a tricky question and i don't think anybody can claim high moral ground when there is so much consequence on both sides. >> i'm a catholic and i'm pro life and i can relate to that and i think that's why so many democrats over the years have agreed to compromise with republicans on this issue to say even though those of us who are democrats support abortion rights, we will go ahead and agree that taxpayers who may strongly disagree with this policy, in my case, i do, that taxpayers not be forced to pay for these abortions.
4:40 pm
it's a very controversial issue. this has been going on since before roe vs. wade. the divide in our country. the fact is that even a lot of democrats who today are campaigning and criticizing joe biden have voted and spending bills for this policy exactly for that reason. >> we don't as a country hold the same values. we don't all hold the same values. congressman, as always, up next from a celebration of our country's independence to a celebration of donald trump? a closer look at the president's plans to insert himself into what has been a nonpartisan celebration on the fourth of july. back after this. back after this. -[ scoffs ] if you say so. ♪ -i'm sorry? -what teach here isn't telling you is that snapshot rewards safe drivers with discounts on car insurance. -what? ♪ -or maybe he didn't know. ♪

welcome back to "hardball." for a man who loves pomp and circumstance, he received his fair share this week. meeting with the queen and
4:44 pm
hosted for a state bank wet at buckingham palace along french president emmanuel macron of military aircraft. in just four weeks, president trump, always the showman, will be putting himself at the center of an annual celebration here at home that is typically remained a political. d.c. officials confirmed to "the washington post" that the president will deliver remarks from the lincoln memorial to the crowd celebrating the fourth of july. he will be the first president in almost seven decades to do so. the last was harry truman for the 175th anniversary for the declaration of independence. back in february he was considering holding upon an event on the fourth of july. >> we are thinking about doing something which would become perhaps a tradition, a salute to america on july 4th or that weekend. it could be a very exciting day. the fireworks is there anyway.
4:45 pm
we just saved doing fireworks. free fireworks because it's already being done. >> two of those members are gone right now. the president has been eager to find a way to insert himself into this country's celebration ever since he was dazzled by france's bastille day celebration and talked about hosting a parade with tanks rolling down pennsylvania avenue. not surprisingly, it has been largely negative. comparing it to the old soviet union. comparing it to the old soviet union. lentless too. mbc doesn't take a day off, and neither will i. lentless too. and i treat my mbc with everyday verzenio- the only one of its kind that can be taken every day. in fact, verzenio is a cdk4 & 6 inhibitor for postmenopausal women with hr+, her2- metastatic breast cancer, approved, with hormonal therapy, as an everyday treatment
