tv The 11th Hour With Brian Williams MSNBC April 14, 2021 11:00pm-12:00am PDT
and congressman steven horsford thank you both for joining us. tonight we have just arrived at the curfew hour in brooklyn center, minnesota. and this nbc's breaking news live coverage continues on the 11th hour. with brian williams which starts now. williams whic starts now good evening once again, while this was indeed 85 of the biden administration, we are keeping an act on brooklyn center minor soda, as lawrence just mentioned, as the curfew is now in effect, a night for of unrest there. that has followed the point blank police shooting of dante wright, more on that in just a moment. we want to begin tonight with a history making decision from the white house, that is not without controversy. today the president announced the end of our nation's longest war. he announced that all u.s. troops, about 2500 of them remain, will leave afghanistan by september 11th.
leaving afghanistan with the goal of both of his two immediate predecessors, obama and trump, but a goal that was never realized. with a two decade old war has taken the lives of over 2000 american service members, left some 20,000 of them wounded, and caused two trillion dollars. >> i'm now the fourth united states president, to preside over american troop presence in afghanistan. two republicans, to democrats. i will not pass this responsibility on to a fifth. it's time to end america's longest war. it's time for american troops to come home. the war in afghanistan was never meant to be a multi generational undertaking. we were attacked. we went to war with clear goals. we achieved those objectives. bin laden is dead, and al-qaeda is degraded in iraq, in afghanistan. and it's time to end the
forever war. >> it was no accident that biden made his announcement from the white house treating room, looking out over the ellipse, where george w. bush, told the nation about those very first airstrikes on afghanistan, back in 2001. we wear a different country than. biden also said he spoke with bush yesterday to let him know about this planned departure. shortly after today's speech, president traveled to arlington cemetery. he visited section 60, that's the final resting place for those killed in iraq and afghanistan. of course the presidents oldest son beau is an army officer who served in iraq. the president's decision was praised by his former boss barack obama, who issued a statement that read in part, it is time to turn the page to the next chapter of our relationship with afghanistan. it is time to recognize that we have accomplished all that we can myth of militarily. and that it's time to bring our
remaining troops home. the new york times reports that biden also talked about obama with his decision, and that he rejected advice from the pentagon, that withdrawal be based on conditions in afghanistan, and not the calendar. on capitol hill, where let's be clear, criticism is easy and decisions are hard, the former seem to carry the day. >> president biden you have not ended the. warrior distended it. you're withdrawing because it's been to. long you're withdrawing because america is tired. i can tell america, that you may be tired of fighter derived, they are not tired of fighting you. this mistake in afghanistan is one of several incidents of of this new administration summer enduring leverage, without making america, our allies or our interests more secure. >> meanwhile as we mentioned earlier, protests continue over the fatal shooting of 20-year-old dante wright, killed by a police officer,
during a traffic stop. this morning, that officer, now former officer kim potter, was arrested, taken into custody on a charge of second degree manslaughter. she was released tonight after posting 100,000 dollar bond. her first court appearance is set for tomorrow. the charge comes a day after she and the brooklyn center police chief both resigned. >> in less than one week, the district attorney made the decision, that we will charge this officer, and the family of dante wright will get to have their day in court. >> now if convicted, potter would face a sentence of up to a decade in prison. at the trial of another former minnesota police officer, derek chauvin, the defense argued today that his knee on george floyd's neck for nearly nine and a half minutes, that is not what killed floyd. but that the actual cause of death had to do with george
floyd's heart condition, drugs and possibly even carbon mine oxide. the exhaust from the police car that he was pinned under. here is what an actual former medical examiner for the state of maryland, who did not examine floyd's body, told the court and the national audience. >> mr. floyd had a sudden cardiac arena, due to his death row scholastic and hypertensive heart disease, during his restraints by the police. he would have the toxicology, the fentanyl and methamphetamine, there is exposure to vehicle exhaust potentially carbon oxide poisoning. >> during cross examination the
prosecution for its part challenge that man's assertions. including his finding about the car exhaust. >> how do you know the car was even on? >> it is a question i specifically asked. and then i made observation of water dripping from will appear to be the tailpipe. >> and you assumed by seeing something dripping from the tailpipe that the car had to be on? >> it's not an assumption. it's an evaluation which in my mind indicates the vehicle was running. >> you haven't seen any data or test results. they showed mr. floyd had a fatal injury from carbon monoxide. is that true? >> that is correct. >> and real quick here before we bring in our lead off guest and discuss tonight's topics, because the curfew has just gone into effect, on this night for of protests in brooklyn center minnesota, let's get an
update from our correspondent cal perry, who is there on the scene. cal what's it like tonight? >> hey brian, few elements like we didn't have last night, as you can see police are going to start to clear that crowd behind me. first there are many number of individuals that are breaking the sidewalk into pieces, so they can throw that at the police. there's a number of water blossoms thrown in barricades tonight. the protesters abrupt barricades, all of which is really raise the tension level here. the reason we are 100 yards down the road from where we were last night, is really twofold, the first is the crowd is also starting to really mess with the media. and pushes out of here. we are going to start to see people running, now and the second is that as we move this way brian, this is what happened last night. the police are flushing all the protesters down this, rhoden as they run down this, road in those start running past me, we're okay here we're just going to go right here, as they run past me, what's going to happen is when they get to that
intersection, they'll get met with them national guard. in this is what happened last. night this is why we pulled back a little bit, but now we have seen that first line for some flash bring grenades and, the pepper spray, and as you can see this crowd is now headed down the road. one of the more dangerous things that's been happening here, is the first people to take off our in vehicles, it's dark out here and people are racing away from the scene. it's one more element of why lie enforcement, just before i go, let's spin all the way around, that's the trap right there, brian at the end of that road, in this is what happened last, night everybody starts taken off running in that and in the road there met with a wall of national guardsmen, and local law enforcement. 79 people were arrested last night, similar scenes playing out now. >> cal thank you for the update, to you and your crew stay low and stay safe. cal perry reporting for us from brooklyn center north of minneapolis. with that let's bring in our lead off guest on this wednesday night. starting with phil, record pulitzer prize-winning senior
washington correspondent for the washington post. jeremy bash former chief of staff at the cia and the pentagon, former chief counsel to the house intel committee. and we're happy to welcome to the broadcast, a veteran attorney c.k., hofeller she's this eo of this ekg off where firm in inland, and dealing with both wrongful death cases and civil rights litigation. she is counseled jesse jackson, the rainbow push coloration, also happens to be president of the national bar association, the nation's oldest network of predominantly black judges, and attorneys. counselor indeed, by way of welcoming you, i'd like to begin with you tonight. let's talk about this charge, against the now former police officer, who we saw on video, firing the shot that killed dante right. second degree manslaughter, in accordance to the law man to, is it the right charge in your view? >> first of all it's great to be here tonight brian this is the right charge.
i would have to say that given what we saw, and we have to trust her eyes, i think there should have been a greater charge, but because of how the events unfolded, i believe that the district and journey felt that man to was probably the best that they could do given the circumstance. i would've hoped, for a stronger charge, a higher charge, because i thought that her behavior was quite frankly unacceptable and reckless. it was completely reckless. and you know -- in a strong member of the national bar association, and i've been in contact with him and just the conduct that we see, just watching with our eyes, looking at what we're seeing, not spilling in the blanks but just looking at the footage, truly it would've been my hope that there was a stronger charge, but i believe that the district attorney felt that this would stick.
and it's only the beginning. this is the first charge. it might evolve. as the facts unfold. >> indeed, phil record the videotape in this case, tells the story, it was released almost immediately. you can hear the police officer herself reacting to firing that one single fatal shot, with her glock instead of using the taser, phil what is your sense where there's intersects with the belief that there's any pressure that's on the pressure, -- the presidency to react more forcefully, more aggressively, to what is unfolding in brooklyn center minnesota? >> well brian, there is a great deal of pressure on president biden, vice president harris, their team at the white house. and what you have right now, -- is a president trying to strike a balance. they're very careful to not
react too hard, because they don't want to increase the tension that's already in the community. they're mindful of course, that former president trump with his roddick it with his -- in his talk about maybe evening sending troops, the tweet he was sending about protests, all that did was increase the tension around the country, biden is trying to cool it down. he's also being mindful, these been putting out statements the last few days about what happened, in this particular shooting. clearly they have been bothered over the years by the state of shootings in this country and there -- in the days ahead, including from being crushed in a black caucus, a very important part of this presidents political coalition, in the trying to do something more tangible, more forceable, to prevent this from
happening in the future. because it continues to happen in america. this was something that president biden campaigned on. it was an important politically last year, [inaudible] >> jeremy bash, you are unwittingly part of our effort to toggle between topics, as we must tonight. you are going to take us to afghanistan after we both listened to the reaction from the new head of the cia today, to the president's decision. >> there is a significant risk, once the u.s. military in the coalition militaries withdraw. but we will work very hard, at the cia in with all of our partners, to try to provide the kind of strategic warning to others in the u.s. government, that enables them and us to address that threat, if it starts to materialize. >> so notable comments there, from a man of few americans
have seen, gotten used to in the job as of yet. the newly minted cia director, i know is a veteran of the cia or self, it's within those confines that i ask, what you make of the president's decision. and for those in the chiefs, eastwards very easy to say we ought to stay, if we stay, what is victory look like? and how will we know we are there? >> yes, brian see that's the problem. 20 years into this, the president united states has pretty bad options. option one was leave and incur some of the risk that cia director bill burns talks about. the option to his worst, is if we stay and aggregate the agreement that united states under pressure president trump stuck with the taliban, the taliban would have every incentive to escalate its attacks on the afghan government and u.s. forces. we would've been forced to incur potential losses and
casualties. and then we've escalated the war that nobody wants. so, of these sickle options. i think the president chose wisely. he basically said, we've been there long enough. we've been there a whole generation. they're pita people fighting in afghanistan who were even born on line 11. we've history to the al-qaeda safe haven. there were able to have a standoff capability for counter-terrorism were refuse intelligence with the ability to strike on any target on any time, any place, inside afghanistan. in that we, will protect the homeland, which is of course the essential mission. so i think the president got exactly right today. >> also, germany, on another topic, having to do with this still new presidency. bloomberg among others reporting tonight that we may be hours away from a new round of sanctions against the russians for that massive hack. there is a new sheriff in town. he has now already laid down a
marker with the pentagon. they are saying, as part of the moves which could be announced as soon as thursday, the u.s. plans to sanction about a dozen individuals, including government and intelligence officials, and roughly 20 entities. again, all of this because of the solar wind hack. the u.s. is also expected to expel as many as ten russian officials and diplomats from the country. germany, this looks, for better or worse, a lot like what u.s. russian relations used to look like when we had a president who stood up to them. >> and brian, i think that's what president brian biden told president putin in their phone call earlier this. week which was look, if you want to participate in the union to national community, abide by the international order and behave. then, we can work together on important things. but if you're going to hack the united states with solar winds. if you're going to interfere with elections, oh imprison opposition figures like navalny,
poison and kill former intelligence officials in the streets of london. and if you are going to threaten ukraine on the doorsteps of nato, then you're going to suffer consequences. then i think the sanctions are very tough, direct sanctioned efforts directed at the kremlin. and i think is part of the parents. that we need towards moscow. to make sure they stay in the box and don't threaten the united states and our interests. >> and c.k. finally back to you, a question that calls for your analysis as much as your lowering. and here it is, how might the outcome of the chauvin trial affect the disposition, the handling and the case in the murder of daunte wright? >> i think is going to have a tremendous impact for so many reasons. when we look at this case the derek chauvin trial we, have to realize that all eyes, not just in minnesota, throughout this country, but throughout the
world, are focused on what happened because of the significance of this. case for the african commander can community, the height of this trial during the prosecutor's case, that another 20 year old young man is killed in the same state, with such recklessness, is just create such a frenzy and fifth of desperation. and a sense of sadness in our community. and amongst -- in our civil rights organization, our legal community, and it's not just in the african-american community, but throughout the community. so whatever happens in that trial is undoubtedly going to have an impact on another case in the same community. and the reason for that is because they're linked. police brutality is a real pandemic. it is a pandemic! and that's why the national guard -- is focused on police brutality
as the congressional black caucus is meeting with president biden saying this has got to stop. there's got to be widespread federal response. in addition to what we do in the states and localities. so we have to watch this very closely. because if for some reason derek chauvin is acquitted, it's going to have such a strong impact in that community. and for those who are taking up the next case. the case of this young man who is 20 years old, who just has something dangling from his mere. imagine how such senseless that killing is. and you have a 26 year veteran police officer who mistakenly, she says mistakenly, takes her gun and shoots and kills him from the taser when they're depart different apparatus. a gun is a gun, a taser is a taser. one is on one side of the body, one is on the other. it's senseless. that's why said, i wish there was a stronger charge against her.
but she basically created an unreasonable risk. and during minnesota law, unconsciously at causing the death of this young man. the wright will never be the same. actually, minnesota will never be the same. a community will never be the same. so, there's got to be accountability. if there's no accountability in derek chauvin case, then people will feel there is not gonna be any accountability in the wright case. and that is going to cause massive, massive havoc. more havoc, more protests. and in this country. so the president has to step up. that's why the congressional black caucus, i believe, is meeting with the president about these issues. because it is time for a change. this is got to stop. >> counselor, your use of the word pandemic during a pandemic certainly reverberates and we will remember it. we are much obliged to our big three guests for starting us
off tonight. two philip rucker, to jeremy blush, and and welcome to ck hoffler. thank you to all three of you. coming up, as we keep an eye on the protests in minnesota tonight, when our next guests, our second pulitzer prize -winning journalist of this putt broadcast explains why hope feels dangerous to him. as the chauvin verdict approaches. and really, was really behind the polls in the j&j vaccine? what are our most trusted path physicians will be here to talk us through it. getting underway this wednesday night. da night. unstopables fabric finds, neutralizes and eliminates tough odors trapped in hard-to-wash fabrics, like couches or smelly sports equipment; leaving an irresistibly fresh scent. and for a tropical burst of freshness, try new paradise scent. stop sneaky odors from lingering in your home, with febreze unstopables.
on that video. >> very basic way of looking at the case after all. floyd family eternally ben crump today as derek chauvin's lawyers presents his defense. -- floyd's death is fully documented on video recorded from multiple angles. the onlookers cellphones, the officers body cameras, a surveillance camera across history. all the jewelers have to believe is believe their own eyes and ears. i should be able to expect that they will do so. i should at least be able to hope they will. but hope still feels dangerous. with that, back with us once again the aforementioned eugene warm vincent. pulitzer prize-winning columnist at washington post. matt kaye lewis is back with us. senior columnist over at the daily beast. gentlemen, good evening. eugene, explain to members of our audience who may not know understand it, you are
hard-earned caution as we approach the verdict in chauvin. and as we approach the disposition in the case of daunte wright, who we watched straight-up killed on an officer's body camera. >> well, how far back do you want to go, brian? we could go back nearly 30 years. we watched police officers beat rodney king to a pulp. and those officers, when they were tried, were acquitted. we watched right across the river from minneapolis, we watched the cell phone video of philando castillo being shot to death by a police officer during a routine traffic stop. committed no crimes, made no sudden movements, did nothing wrong. but was killed. and the officer was acquitted. we have seen this movie many
times before. and it feels dangerous and vulnerable to hope. even to hope that this time will be different. when clearly, to me at least, clearly it should be. nine minutes and 29 seconds of just the most heartbreaking and infuriating video evidence that you could ever produce in any case. and yet i, speaking for myself, find it hard to believe the system will work this time. and that this police officer will be held accountable for what he did. which was to kill george floyd. the defense took what i think is probably its best shot today. they found a forensic pathologists with credentials to take the stand and muddy the
waters. and tell the jury don't believe your eyes and ears. believe all these extraneous factors. and it was just a cardiac arrest, and maybe an overdose, or maybe carbon monoxide, or whatever. and my analysis doesn't count. it's the jurors analysis. that's the only analysis that counts. and if there is one or more jurors who want to acquit. who are looking for something to hang an acquittal on, at least on the most serious charge, they may think they got it today. i just don't know. we won't know until that jury goes out and comes back. and i hope they do, see clearly the right thing. but we don't know. >> yes, for folks who haven't watched a lot of trials, as i keep seeing, the job of the defense seems like it's to make the point that george floyd
somehow killed george floyd. that, look at the toxic backdrop in our country. and while we talk about this toxic backdrop in our country, in state houses across our country, there is quite a titanic effort to restrict voting rights. on a false assumption that they were somehow the -- vote was violated or fraudulent, or unfair. a big full page ad today. a lot of household names of corporations. a lot of logos visible around the world. matt, does any of this surprise you? that these companies are putting their good names where their mouths are? >> i'm not surprised at, brian. because we have seen a pattern in the last couple of years of woke capitalism. and i think this is just a continuation of that.
i have to be honest, i don't think these corporations are suddenly discovering their conscience, care about racial equality or voting rights back in georgia. only until a couple of weeks ago, some of these, i can't speak for all of these things happening in the state houses, but in georgia -- i think some of the concern about that bill was overwrought. certainly, i think calling it jim crow two point oh was -- but nevertheless, i don't think that these corporations are finding their conscience or finally doing the right thing. i think they have made a calculated decision to go this direction. i don't know if is it's a wise decision, i don't if they're alienating their consumer base. or if it's a bet that the future is younger and more progressive. but i think that's what this
is. so, it's just a complicated nuanced story, right? i mean, the whole voting rights thing is premised on a big lie. right? the lie was that joe biden didn't win the election. that's totally bogus. then, at least in the case of the georgia bill, i think the merits of the bill -- there certainly some good things in it. it certainly was as bad as a lot of people thought. some of these corporations are finally standing up, i think, and taking kind of a moral stand. i just don't really trust that it's a sincere one. so it's really not a happy ending at this point. oint >> though i would argue and others would to. portions of the georgia bill, included but not limited to, restrictions on food and water. our street up out the window crazy. and we, i digress. both of these gentlemen have
agreed to stay with. us we're going to fit in a quick break here. our guests have agreed to stay with us, at least that much. coming up, we'll ask matt to explain what he now calls the freak flag party. did you know that every single flush flings odors onto your soft surfaces? then they get release back into the air, so you smell them later. ew right? that's why febreze created small spaces. press firmly and watch it get to work. unlike the leading cone, small spaces continuously eliminates odors in the air and on surfaces. so they don't come back for 45 days. just imagine what it can do with other odors. so you want to make the best burger ever? then make it! that means cooking day and night until... [ ding ] success! that means... best burger ever.

but matt, who do we see about what the republican party has become? i'm going to remind you of a quote of your own writing. gaetz found trump's depraved anything goes style to be elaborating and some republicans apparently find their honesty refreshing. but don't be surprised if the end result is a gaggle of eagle maniacal politicians flaunting their conquests on the house floor. if gaetz survives, the lesson will be that preemptively telegraphing your vice is a sort of get out of jail free card. who matt, i guess my point is politics and moral behavior have all this had a curious relationship. did trump personally, per se, make this worse? make it the status quo in the gop? >> while you're right, there's always been scandals and bad
behavior. i think the difference is, politicians used to feel compelled to pretend to be decent or ethical. and i think donald trump got rid of that. and if you look, there was a vanity fair article that matt gaetz did, or an interview he gave to vanity fair in september, where he talked about how republicans in the past -- republican standard bearers were stick in the mud. but how he has a quote, active social life. and trump being president, while having a congressman with an active social life, just makes it easier. and i think that is sort of part of the story. it's a matter of the flagrant's of it. the flaunting of it, the reveling in it. and i do think it has an impact. we've had in the past, some pretty weird scandals. but, you know, you've got gaetz,
you've got marjorie taylor greene. it does seem like trump -- a couple things have happened. one, people want to be able to fly their freak flag, really, liked having trump as the standard bearer. i also think trump served as a little bit of a magnet to attract a certain type of person into, what used to be a, at least in the republican party used to have to pretend to be a stick in the mud. that's no longer the case. >> eugene, i keep thinking of al franken is making of this. why in your view, are so many republicans silent on matt gaetz? >> well, they're not going to lock arms with him now. because he could be essentially
in serious legal jeopardy. and the the charges are unsavory, even for the post trump republican party. so you're not hearing a chorus coming out in support of matt gaetz. but not even president trump, who we should send a tepid message of support for gaetz -- he's pretty much left out there. and everybody is going to wait and see what happens. i do agree with matt, that donald trump set the bar pretty much at floor level. in terms of behavior and morals and everything else. and that's where we are today. and maybe some day we can raise it again. but that certainly where the
party is right now. >> all right, gentlemen. eugene robinson, matt lewis, thank you both for coming on and spending time with us tonight. coming up for us, there is still no resolution to the j&j vaccine dilemma. will accept one of our top doctors, where the debate and the science stand tonight when we come right back.

olay regenerist faced 131 premium products, from 12 countries, over 10 years. olay's hydration was unbeaten every time. face anything. find out more at olay.com tonight, the temporary pause on administering the j&j remains a pause. it remains in place following half a dozen reports of this rare blood clotting, amid women in a certain age group. after hours of deliberation today, this cdc advisory piled nil decided there was enough data to make a recommendation on the vaccine. so, for now, this j&j can't yet start back up again. two committee members say they will reconvene in a week or so.
but the extended pause has some in their group concerned. >> we're in a situation where we're not making a season is tantamount to making a decision. an extension of the pause will invariably result in the fact that, the most vulnerable individuals in the united states, prime candidates for the johnson & johnson vaccine will remain vulnerable. with us today again tonight is doctor nahid bhadelia, an infectious disease physician. medical director of the special pathogens unit of the boston university school of medicine. and doctor, thank you first of all for taking our questions. considering the number of people depending, who have come to depend on the j&j, considering its efficacy in all other areas. considering its value as a one and done, really secure liquid
vaccine that travels well -- how is it a good thing that this pause is in place? >> brian, i think you have to look at this it's a tough decision either way. i think having this pause, extending the pause, the concern is that is going to create vaccine hesitancy around johnson & johnson. around, as you said, adverse effects that are in the end quite rare. and it could lead over as vaccine hesitancy, to other vaccines, which might because of general confusion -- but on the other hand, you have the process of not doing the pause, not doing complete transparent evaluation. is that if there is a spot strongly or something else is discovered, then you lose the long term trust. and what you saw today was a very transparent process where. you got the advisory committee
members in realtime discussing this data, currently. the data that they are looking for is truly, there's very few instances -- we've been talking about one in 1 million instances. but comes on the heels of astrazeneca finding that a similar technology vaccine was also cloth causing blood clots. and the extension of the pause currently is true try to gather weather other types of clots, besides the one discovered in the six women, could also be seen in the other sense. because these blood clots are really were an astrazeneca, as well. i think it was one into hundred 50 thousands. whereas, that's a different number than one in the million. and the hope is that now that physicians have been alerted, providers have been alerted, if the reports come in will get a better understanding at who is a high risk. so when we rule out the vaccines again, it will be done with greater confidence and transparency in the end.
>> thank you for that answer. and for explaining it. we've asked the doctor to hang out with us just a bit more while we fit in a break here. we'll continue our discussion when we come back. we will talk about the good news. let's not forget the good news in this vaccine effort. it dissolves fast to start cleaning sooner, releasing the soaking power of dawn. then cascade's food-seeking enzymes latch on and break down food into particles so small they can flow right down the drain. and it's powerful enough for the quick-wash cycle! new cascade platinum with 50% more cleaning power! the #1 brand just got better!

conversation with dr. nahid bhadelia, who's been kind enough to hang out with us for just a minute. more doctor, people are hot on this subject. i just got a text from a friend of mine asking, if it's one intimately why pause the g angie? where were the blood clots during the drug trials? these are the questions people have. and the j&j news is upsetting. especially for those of us worried about hesitancy. let's, for our closing comment, dwell on the miracle that these vaccines represent.
this fluid will be our salvation out of this someday. and in fact, there was even better news on the moderna front, today, am i right? >> that's right, brian. three cases of good news. so again, i want to stress that none of the mrna vaccines have seen blood. cots and moderna receive leased data today that showed in their six month floral up their vaccines continue to remain efficacious, which is at 95% efficacious. compared to the 90% for all of the six months. and this comes at the heels of a pfizer releasing similar data. most people in my field thinks that prediction is probably going to last longer than six months. six months is all we have data. for a piece of good news, they have great preclinical data, that says that there booster, which their planted to give six months after their first doses of their vaccines, has great protection against the variants that we are talking about.
the b117 and the one from south africa. and the last, they finished in rolling in their trial a 17 year old. so we should be seeing data on that population, which will get us closer to vaccinating our children in advance of the fall. the boosters by the way, the boosters are going to be working on the very. moderna says they might be available next fall, when we may see activity go up again for the winter months. >> well, we're trying trudel on the positive around here, as i knew you often. do dr. nahid bhadelia, thank you for always coming on in the interests of the public health. we so greatly agree appreciate the time we get to spend with. you a quick update for our audience on the situation that we started off covering live at the top of the hour in brooklyn center, minnesota. the police have -- this is a tip from earlier tonight. the police have more or less successfully cleared the area in front of that police station. driving protesters from there

american life and media and society. all for the most minimal investment. not just the ardent committed trumpers like ron johnson, or rudy journey ali, who are willing to publicly repeat actual russian talking points. but the subtle, inexpensive way the russians have affected our news, our memorable, our national dialog, with the most modest investment in social media and bots. it's out there every day on our phones. you just need to know it when you see. speaking of which, this was an especially good day for putin, thanks to two americans in particular. first is name mike givens, he's an ohio businessman running for senate. he just released his first campaign ad. a lot of this three-minute spot is shots of him in a white dress shirt pointing at someone. there are other gauzy scenes. during his voice over portion supporting trump and the
american way of life, family and so on. where the video is from a russian production company. two other scenes in his commercial were shot in ukraine. yes, it's odd, considering he is running for the united states senate. which brings us to united states senator cindy hyde-smith of the great state of mississippi. all you need to know about senator smith is, she voted with donald trump 91% of her time in the senate. today, she tweeted out a graphic, happy 75th birthday to the u.s. air force reserve. that seems nice and superpatriotic. and we're guessing putin was grateful because, as a journalist and aviation expert tyler rug away pointed out, your birthday wish celebrates russian as you 34's in service with the russian air force. indeed, tyler is right again. that's the unmistakable profile
of a soup quite 34 russian fighter with its forward stabilizing fans. it was also pointed out today, that's not even a local of the air force reserve. this is, at least the air force reserve here in the united states. we're sandy hyde-smith, who has since taken down the tweet and replaced it, serves in the united states senate. that's our broadcast for this wednesday night. with our thanks for being here with us. on behalf of all my colleagues at the networks of nbc news, goodnight. >> tonight, on all in. as police mobilize against protests in minnesota. a damning new report shows the capitol police knew a violent mob was coming on january six and chose not to act. tonight, americans selective use of the full force of the state. then, new manslaughter charges and arrests. the police officer who shot dante
