5:12 am
officials to back his unproven fraud claims and codes leave the rest to me, the department rebuffed his efforts. thing they had no power to challenge the results from republican allies named in the memos have denied involvement. she had her tansy has more now on those memos from washington. these are supporting to be verbatim things, adult trumps. and so for example, having go over all the things that drum says went wrong during an action, you would say quite, you guys may not be following the internet the way i do. and quite, for example, you know, in his way of saying like you just said it, what's going on, you've got to say you got to stop challenging the election results. and then it leads to that, that that statement which, which is preceded by the attorney general in the deputy the general saying they have the power to overturn the vote that they have. they don't see any evidence to suggest. and then thing was rigged. and donald trump says, just say that the election was corrupt and leave the rest to me, laser and commas and his congressional allies, to work,
5:13 am
to use that then to add to his, his case to be that the election was, was rigged up until this point with the or j under donald trump had been saying that this is an issue of executive privilege. and it's true the director has ordinarily been very reluctant to hand over verbatim notations, alter conversation between officials and a president. because once it's clear that the officials accounts will perhaps be made public one day, then how can you expect them to give candid information? we have to keep keep candid records of the sort of advice that they've given to the president. but in this case, the d o j says it's, it's an extraordinary circumstance executive privilege, that right to secrecy is meant to protect the country, not any individual. and because it's extraordinary, this circumstance off a sitting president being investigative or wrong, doing them executive privilege has to be waived. and congress and all the rest of us immediately leaked. everyone have have these documents. jennifer, victor is

a professor of political science at george mason university. she says the memo show how explicit mr. trump's efforts to overturn the election were when democracy is die, they tend to not die in spectacular fashion and over some significance big event. but rather they degrade slowly over time. and so what we're seeing here is more evidence of this idea, the administration under the presidency of donald trump, having engaged in significant number of practices and behaviors that are frankly just plain anti democratic. to some extent, i think many of us suspected that this type of thing had gone on. donald trump did not accept the results of the election in november or december. and of course, there was the capital insurrection that he played some role in an effort to overturn the election results. and so his campaign of not believing in election results not wanting others to believe the election results. this,
5:15 am
this evidence that has been presented today helps us to understand that this was very explicit from, from the beginning. really, there were clearly some actors around donald trump in the white house or whatnot who sort of had enabled this behavior had contributed to it, have help him magnify that, that faulty false message. there are others, such as the acting attorney general's the time who's notes. we are seeing today who clearly acted as the guard rails of democracy who other other essentially state level, county level and federal bureaucrats and federal appointees who in fact did do the right thing regardless of their partisan affiliation. lots more ground still to cover for you here are now to the or including as casey surgeon, bangkok we see how the cities dealing with a shortage of hospital beds. and we'll look at how n t faxes in the united states, the threatening president, biden's cooper,
