tv   The 11th Hour With Brian Williams  MSNBC  April 15, 2021 11:00pm-12:00am PDT

11:00 pm
today, the infrastructure in west virginia is crumbling and everyone is out of work. now that means that there is a workforce there that could build green energy and i think that if my dad was around, he would work to provide clean energy, his company would be called war, wind and solar, and they might have speed internet as well. >> it sounds like we have some west virginia support for the biden infrastructure bill, will have to follow how much support joe manchin gives to that build, virginia and nancy heffernan, thank you very much for joining us tonight and letting us hear the real voices of west virginia, we really appreciate it. >> thank you, lawrence. >> thank you. >> thank you. and a programming note, you can listen to this program and any
11:01 pm
other msnbc show, anytime, anywhere on any device with tune in, go to tune in .com slash msnbc 2021, that is tune in .com slash msnbc 2021, and that is tonight's last work. the 11th hour starts now. now >> good evening once again, while this was indeed an 86 of the biden administration, it's also the fifth night in a row watching the familiar scene where a curfew has gone into effect tonight, and the protest stemming from the point blank shooting death by a police officer of 20 year old daunte wright are continuing. in the meantime in chicago, there is anger over another fatal police shooting, this one involving a 13 year old, more on that in a moment. this is all unfolding as the former officer charged with
11:02 pm
manslaughter, second degree, in the daunte wright shooting made her first court appearance, came partner, served 26 year on the force there. filed no plea today, she is out on bail, expected back in court next month. body camera video showed potter shooting daunte wright and for good measure we can hear her sing out loud, i shot him. the families now calling for potter to face charges more serious than manslaughter second-degree. >> justice? what is justice? do we get to see dante smile? we don't get to see that. this is a taser, this is a taser. but no, my nephew was killed with this, a glut. >> as we mentioned, chicago is now dealing with the aftermath of its own deadly police shooting, 13 year old, adam
11:03 pm
toledo was shot and killed by chicago police officer, eric still men. early morning hours of march 29th. body camera video, the incident was released today, warning while it is fast and choppy and it is difficult to tell what is going on, the video is nonetheless disturbing. >> stop, stop right now. show me your hands. shots fired, shots fired, get an ambulance here now. bring the medical team now. >> the officers responding to -- police department video shows the fire arm was found behind a fence at the scene a few feet away. today chicago's mayor spoke to the citizens of that city about the shooting. >> no parent should have a video broadcast wildly of their
11:04 pm
child's last moment. much less be placed in the terrible situation of losing their child in the first place. simply put, we failed adam. and we cannot afford to fail one more young person in our city. >> chicago mayor, laurie lightfoot, these videos of deaths at the hands of police officers come of course as the trial of derek chauvin, the former minneapolis police officer, accused of murdering george floyd is underway. today the prosecution and the defense, both rested their cases but not before chauvin spoke out for the first time during three weeks of testimony. he did so as he declined to take the stand. >> i have advised you that this is your decision and your decision alone.
11:05 pm
>> right. >> i have advised you and we have gone back and forth on the matter, right? >> yes it is. >> have you made a decision whether you intend to testify or whether you intend to invoke your fifth amendment privileges. >> i will invoked my fifth amendment privilege, today. >> the decision ultimately, has to be yours. is this your decision not to testify? >> it is, your honor. >> that is how it went, closing argument set to begin on monday, the jury will be sequestered during deliberations as expected. on another front entirely, in washington, the president imposed extensive new sanctions on russia for election interference, hacking and military actions on the border near ukraine. today, biden described how he warned putin of what was coming in a phone conversation on tuesday of this week. >> i was clear with president
11:06 pm
putin, that we could've gone further, but i chose not to do so. i chose to be proportionate. the united states is not looking to kick out a cycle of escalation with russia, we want a stable, predictable relationship. if russia continues to interfere with our democracy, i'm prepared to take further actions to respond. >> biden also said that he has offered, again, to meet with putin in person this summer, somewhere in europe. the administration also revealed that one time paul manafort provided russian intelligence with sensitive information on polling and campaign strategy during the 2016 olympic. a question left unanswered by the intelligence committee and the report. that established for the first time the private meetings and communications between trump campaign officials, manafort and his deputy and kilimnik,
11:07 pm
were a pipeline into the kremlin while it was trying to meddle in our election back in 2016. efforts to overturn the 2020 election where the focus of the hearing in the house today, specifically the january 6th insurrection at the capitol. lawmakers heard from the inspector general of the u.s. capitol police who had just completed the most extensive top to bottom report to date about the response to the riot and those who carried it out. >> they came prepared and this was planned, they plan to do what they did. there was information that was provided that it was decided that the sting balls, the 40 millimeters were not to be utilized based on the information that we received that they could potentially cause a life altering injuries and or death.
11:08 pm
certainly, i can see how anybody could classify that as a peaceful demonstration. >> it is a lot tonight, we will get through that, let's bring in our guests, three friends of this broadcast, starting by peter baker, chief white house correspondent for the new york times. the white house correspondent for the pbs news hour and paul butlers back with us a former federal correction prosecution at the department of justice, these days a professor at georgetown law, and because of that counselor i would like to begin with you with what we have to call the latest police shooting video out of chicago tonight. you've seen it, what do you make of it? >> what's the video shows is a 13 year old child shot dead within 20 seconds of the officer leaving his car. what's the video does not appear to show is the child threatening the officer, which would be the only justification for the officer firing his
11:09 pm
weapon. instead, it looks like young adam complies with the order to show the officers his hand. but when he does what he is told to do, the cops shoots him dead. the most important question for investigators is going to be with the officer was thinking. did he have a reasonable fear for his life. >> to you and to your beat and how this all intersects, is the biden white house mulling over doing anything more and perhaps something more aggressive on this subject that is top of mind for good reasons right now? >> i was talking to white house officials today about that very thing and they told me that the president wants to make policing and racial equity a top priority, but in doing so he wants to really put the political will of the white house -- and policing house that of course is the bill that is making its way through congress
11:10 pm
i, was told by sources today that that bill is probably going to change a lot and there is going to be a lot of input from republicans as well from democrats. there is a feeling that they can ruffle out of bill, it may be seen as watered down, but white house officials fear that, but that is where the real energy of the white house is being put towards, that legislation. i was also talking to officials about a broad executive actions, as of now, that's where they want to put their might in. but i also have to say how can we as a country continue to watch, night after night, these horrific videos. it is traumatizing, it is unacceptable, it is terrible to think that while we are in the middle of a trial for derek chauvin, that we are seeing new videos. video after video of people of color, black man, of children, like adam, being shot by police. i think there is a real robust
11:11 pm
conversation that needs to happen. part of that is someone who has covered racial justice and policing, is how we think about police and there is a real conversation to be had about the role that police need to be playing. the role that we think our society needs to be playing in the policing of the police, in this way. i have to tell you, i've talked to so many people who feel like this is just trauma on top of trauma. you can imagine, of course, why run from the police, why try to run from them? but there are people who are simply terrified of the police, for good reason in some ways. watching this video. the mother of daunte wright said can you imagine what he was feeling as he had three officers surrounding him for what's seemed like a minor infraction having to do with a warrant for marijuana. i think there really needs to be a big conversation about that. >> 20-year-old that was a gift to him, you are so right. the video coming as they do in
11:12 pm
this trial are just traumatizing and so corrosive, and so destabilizing. peter baker, to your beat let's widen out further, thankfully. in westerns and the west ring they are fond of saying that there is a new chair of it in time, and in one days time we have normalized our relation with russia, by that i mean, for the first time in five years, we have a president willing to stand up to putin. where to from here? >> it's what's interesting is that the president himself who announced the sanctions today, who takes ownership of them. the trump administration at times to impose sanctions, did expose some diplomats. what you didn't hear that time of the president himself, president trump, actually take the hard line. he left it to the administration below him. he did say that he did not think it was -- it was a good thing to have a good relationship with putin,
11:13 pm
clearly president biden is sending a different message by taking ownership for the action. the action is relatively modest, i think they won't have the type of bite and suddenly changed putin's behavior but they sent a message. they sent a message at a time when there are 80,000 troops gathering on the borders of ukraine, and everyone is quite concerned about what that means. biden trying to send a signal that this is not something that he is going to let go, you know, without some sort of response. at the same time, president biden is talking about having a summit with president putin, you can argue whether that sends a message is signal or not, but he is saying that there can be a way to do business with russia as we're trying to hold them accountable. >> yes, something tells me that we're about to send a lot of our time talking about ukraine, all over again. professor butler, back we go to minneapolis and the ongoing trial. what do you make of chauvin's
11:14 pm
decision and everyone fell all over themselves to point out that it was chauvin's decision, not to testify, was there any other choice? >> brian, this was the most important decision of derek chauvin's alive, he did have a choice, his lawyer told the judge that -- a long conversation last night. jurors like to hear from the person who is on trial. but, if chauvin is taking the stand he would've been destroyed in cross-examination. the prosecution would have taken him through every minute of that very incriminating video, and he might have opened the door to the jury's fury about the many complaints that citizens have filed against chauvin in other cases.
11:15 pm
11:16 pm
here. how speaker nancy pelosi has indicated that she is offering this bill to the house floor, and effectively telling you that the bill is not going anywhere. this white house mission is looking at the supreme court, in part of that investigation, part of that commission, is to look at whether or not should be changed and whether neither should be term limits and having that commission already opens up the white house to some really pointed criticism from republicans. who have been more successful as running up the supreme court, rolling up their base because they've issues like abortion that are compromised by some evangelical christians in particular. that being, said there is a feeling among democrats that there needs to be a could change all sorts of luck, health care, policing, civil rights, you name it.
11:17 pm
there's been trouble democrats on how to deal with that. but this particular idea has not wanted to be put anywhere. they don't want this anywhere at all. nothing that silence from democrats in particularly the president. >> peter baker back the door about this. perhaps this upcoming summit, -- the situation ukraine was why we have nato, argo, that's why -- it's why we kept so many troops in germany. air go, the hubbub when trump said engage in a huge drawdown. so, do we think these two are gonna sit down sooner rather than later somewhere in europe.
11:18 pm
let's assume that ukraine. >> yes. i think. i think putin wants to have a meeting with president biden. he likes to be on the world, stage he likes to have the attention of, you know, the state. just like a lot of other rogue nations around the world. this is one way of getting. it but the situation ukraine is tricky. you cry, and you are right -- nato is not a member of -- nato doesn't include ukraine. their sovereignty is not been an issue to nato. especially if they're gonna go to war over. it that's something that vladimir putin knows. it's something where they took the area of don bat, it's basically occupied by russian supported militants and give it some sort of recognition of an independent state of some sort. and getting it russian umbrella of protection. what is the was gonna do about?
11:19 pm
it's there the west is doing something that they probably don't want to do. so, it's a question. and lasted ministration before president trump, vice president biden was one of those who took a great interest against ukraine in defending it against. russia has been a great interest of helping to pride them unarmed them in the way the president obama's more liberal locked into. do but it's -- it's hard to imagine what you know, the united states can do if putin is determined to cause trouble. they're the question is whether he wants to or not. he's trying to douse domestic problems of his own with alexei navalny, the dissident who isn't in prison and suffering from hunger strike and possibly you know, a danger of his own. putin is distracted by creating international issue which is something he's learned a lot of do a lot over the last two decades. >> could not be appreciative anymore for our big three tonight. thanks for talking about so many subjects. thank you for having us. in peter baker, yamiche alcindor, paul butler, greatly appreciated. coming up for us, powerful
11:20 pm
words from the mother of daunte wright about the difference between justice and accountability. we will bring them to you. later, as millions of americans wait for their first dose, one vaccine maker is talking about when we need to get our booster shot. the 11th hour is just getting underway on this thursday night. night. ter. 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.
11:21 pm
overspending on a retinol cream?
11:22 pm
just one jar of olay retinol24 hydrates better than the $100 retinol cream. for smooth, bright skin or your money back. olay. face anything. and try new retinol24 max. >> there's never going to be a
11:23 pm
justice for us. the justice would bring our son home to us, knocking on the door with us with a big smile coming in the house. playing with his one year old, almost two year old son, giving him a case before he walks out the door. justice isn't even a word to me. i do want accountability, 100% accountability. >> it hurts, wanting 20 year old, alive this time last week, is no longer with us. the grieving mother of daunte
11:24 pm
wright today as the now former police officer who shot and killed her son had her first court appearance on charges of second degree manslaughter. we continue to keep an eye on the fifth night of protests in brooklyn center minnesota over this death by police. for more, we are joined by professor eddie -- chairman of the center of african american studies at princeton. also noted. author and tim miller a contributor to the work on former communications director for jeb bush. eddie, i'd like to begin with you. first my usual bit of advice to our viewers, anyone looking for the perfect 2021 reading list should just take a screen grabbed and start going through all the titles behind eddie junior on his shelf. eddie, i've got a number of questions. but i gotta start pretty basic. how are you processing what you have seen just this week? >> it has been a difficult week,
11:25 pm
brian. it is good to be with you. it's been challenging because we have to deal with this at the human level so to see dante wright murdered on loop and to see the treatment of lieutenant as reo, to see what happens to a young 13 year old, toledo. you can think about -- you think about your family, members children. at the personal level, it's been difficult. but also to kind of think about the other kind of collision, there's a moment of transition as a country. we don't quite know what we are going to do. there is a form of policing that we have been familiar with, that we have gotten used to, where we call black people super predators, black and brown folks super predators. where we have former policing that was okay with john birch, and the black writes in chicago. but we had former policing that resulted in a ramparts in l.a., right? there is a system in which violence was how the police
11:26 pm
treated these criminal communities, it was okay with the majority of america as we lock them up. but we have reached a point where as soon as we're trying to transition into something different. so, you have this moment where some people are reaching for a different kind of policing. trying to hold police accountable while others are clinging to this old way of thinking. and so, it is a country in transition. it feels as if it's a greek tragedy in some way. that makes sense. >> and tim, what eddie is talking about would require something of a societal, moral seat change. and i guess see changes happen in slow motion. so there's always hope. i want to go with you is into politics. there is a big applause line went from said, we love our police, now, we are not having that anymore because we watched trumpers beat our police officers on one sixth to within
11:27 pm
an inch of their lives. some of them with blue lives matter flagpoles in their hands. so, let me ask you, how are republicans likely to process these pictures were she? >> i could listen to any all night. so, i will try to keep my -- look, i think that there is an instinctual cultural grievance base response on the right that's we want your from all republicans but for most republicans, the power base of republicans that voted in donald. trump the republican base that are keeping in with a 70, 80% approval rating even after trump incited that cop killing insurrection at the capitol. you will see some leaders, i think this is one issue, where you will see republican leaders,
11:28 pm
want to come to the table to demonstrate that they will be open to some kind of change. some kind of policing reform. you saw a little bit about that in the trump era, but this thing is kind of underneath. that is underlying that with the voters, there is a grievance, and a rage and instinctual negative response that was demonizing dante, right and adam toledo, that demonize george floyd. and you see that in our social media discussion, you see that in conservative media. and that is the real dark and concerning underbelly of all of this, for me. >> both of these gentlemen thankfully have a great view. stay with us, what we're gonna do a slip in a break and coming up, we will talk nearly 90 days in about both of our guests and what they make of this administration and that guy so far. r.
11:29 pm
spray on hard surfaces to kill 99.9% of viruses and bacteria initially including the covid-19 virus. once dry microban forms a shield that keeps killing bacteria for 24 hours. touch after touch. don't just sanitize. keep killing bacteria for 24 hours with microban 24 start your day with secret. secret stops sweat 3x more than ordinary antiperspirants. the new provitamin b5 formula is gentle on skin. with secret, outlast anything! no sweat. secret. hooh. that spin class was brutal. well you can try the buick's massaging seat. oohh yeah, that's nice. can i use apple carplay to put some music on? sure, it's wireless. pick something we all like.
11:30 pm
ok. hold on. what's your buick's wi-fi password? buickenvision2021. oh, you should pick something stronger. that's really predictable. that's a really tight spot. don't worry. i used to hate parallel parking. (all together) me too. hey. you really outdid yourself. yes, we did. the all-new buick envision. an suv built around you... all of you.
11:31 pm
did you know that febreze air effects uses 100% natural propellant? cheaper aerosols use artificial propellants. that's why febreze works differently. plus, it eliminates odors with a water-based formula and no dyes. for freshness you'll enjoy. >> do you support him to csis attention, california. new federal funding of $3 billion is available to help more people pay for health insurance — no matter what your income. how much is yours? julie and bob are paying $700 less, every month.
11:32 pm
dee got comprehensive coverage for only $1 a month. and the navarros are paying less than $100 a month. check to see your new, lower price. the sooner you sign up the more you save. only at covered california. this way to health insurance. expand the supreme court? >> no. i support the president's commitment to study such a proposal, if that's your question i have no plans to bring it to the floor. >> what that is is what is republican discipline discipline.
11:33 pm
while the legislation proposed by a group of democrats would increase the number to 9 to 13, it's not going anywhere, at least off for now. as she mentioned, the president signed an executive order last week establishing a commission to study the prospect, but that is the extent of it so far and that is enough for the speaker of the house so far. still with us, thankfully, tim miller. i know you do politics because i watched you entombed with nikole all the time. here is a political question, anyway you view this as the ether ill-timed or overreach, on the part of this subset of the democratic party? >> not actually, no. i think primarily because i agree with the position i think that there is a sense where they will continue to try and push right, try and push the
11:34 pm
democrats to change the landscape, whether or not it is the right moment? i'm not sure. but the argument is an argument that has to be made. if there is going to be a substantive change, if there's going to be significant effort to pursue a progressive or transformational agenda, let's leave the progressive label behind, a transformational agenda, we will have to change some of the fundamentals on the playing field. this is just one effort at that. again, there are old elements at foots, old elements at play that they're going to have to negotiate. >> tim, you wrote about something today and i will sum it up by saying, let the word go forth that there is an american president now, willing to stand up to vladimir putin. we learned that today and we read this from tim miller with the obvious news about the -- it is worth revisiting the
11:35 pm
treasonous part of manafort who was a compromise aspect and hampered u.s. efforts to address their attacks on our democracy. this brought everything back reading that from you. there were russians in and around the trump campaign. hell, there were russians at the gop temping in cleveland. he said all except the nomination at this convention but do we have enough russians here? can we call that russia as part of the roll call. so remind us, tim, what all this means and what a character like manafort was doing anywhere near american democracy? >> good on joe biden for actually standing up to vladimir putin and for standing up to american values.
11:36 pm
but this is something that we all kind of knew. this is why the no collusion point was always nonsense. manafort was running donald trump's campaign, everybody knew about this in 2016. he was working with kilimnik, he was helping him with polling information and when he came to get all the information about this in 2017, paul manafort clamped up. and the two people that could actually connect all the dots from everything that we know out there between trump and people in russia is manafort. what manafort did was in the most literal sends treason. because of all the craziest of the donald trump did, -- i think this overshadowed all the outrageous things that he
11:37 pm
did. but i don't think that we can lose sight about just how outrageous the manafort pardon was. >> look at the list of topics we have handled just tonight, what does it say about our world in 2021. we are so happy to have these two guests to do so however. professor eddie glaude jr., tim miller, gentlemen, always a pleasure. thank you and please come back early and often. coming up for us, some answers to the questions that keep coming about the impact and availability of these superb covid vaccines that are on their way to americans arms. their way to americans arms. 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.
11:38 pm
so they don't come back for 45 days. just imagine what it can do with other odors. announcer supermodel cindy crawford doesn't just walk the red carpet. she rocks it! and today, at over 50, she still steals the show. even vogue magazine exclaims, “at 52, cindy still looks as good as she did at 25!” us weekly calls it “proof that cindy does not age” what's cindy's secret? meaningful beauty supreme! the groundbreaking anti-aging system that has kept cindy's skin looking so surprisingly youthful for so long. ellen pompeo when you see the pictures of cindy at age 31 and then now at 52, her skin actually looks more radiant now then it did then. so... whatever she's doing is doing, i'm down to try. announcer with meaningful beauty, frown lines appear diminished in just weeks! crow's feet are visibly softened, and under eye areas appear lifted. horizontal necklines appear dramatically diminished! blanche people definitely say, what are you using?

11:41 pm
vaccination. but all of that needs to be confirmed. it is extremely important to suppress the pool of people that can be susceptible to the virus. >> ceo of pfizer there and what he said is the potential need of a third dose of the pfizer vaccine and the others, a booster shot. the team says that preparations are already indeed, underway towards that. so far, nearly a quarter of the u.s. population has been fully vaccinated. more than that have received at least a first shot, the cdc released new data on a small group of americans who were infected with the virus after they were fully vaccinated. you read them about in the paper every day. before we talk to our doctor who is standing by to talk about all of this, tonight nbc news correspondent has a report on what the cbc found here. >> while more than 76 million
11:42 pm
americans have now been fully vaccinated, the cdc reports a very small number of breakthrough cases. people contracting covid despite being vaccinated. so far, 5800 known cases, most of them women, 40% involve people over the age of 60. 7% had to be hospitalized, 1%, 74 people died. experts say the infections are similar to people coming down with the flu, despite getting the flu vaccine. aerial silver got covid six week after her second covid vaccine dose. >> for two days, i was in bed very sick, sleeping all day. i had to cancel my work phone calls. it hit me hard, for sure. we >> at a certain point i went from oh my god i'm tired, two oh my god i can't move. >> this doctor also got sick after being vaccinated. >> i'm afraid to think what my symptoms could've been like if
11:43 pm
i wasn't vaccinated. >> the data shows the -- there at least 94% effective at preventing severe disease. the j.j. vaccine, 86% effective in preventing severe disease. that means, only a small percentage of vaccinated people are likely to still get covid. though, most of them should not end up in the hospital. >> the vast majority of people who have been vaccinated and get covid, they are going to have mild illness, maybe moderate illness and should be able to recover at home. the >> covid vaccines actually provide for more protection than the typical flu vaccine, which has been 50 to 60% effective in recent years. and the current vaccines do appear to protect against the uk variant, now the most common strain in the u.s.. >> the biggest concern is that people who do become sick, despite being vaccinated, could still spread the virus to others. infectious disease experts point out that no vaccine offers 100% protection. >> all right a lot to say about
11:44 pm
that, thanks to tom costello for that report, and indeed back with us tonight is this doctor, a clinical physician, former senior policy aide during the obama years, she is for good reason, among our public health experts. she is additionally a nonresident fellow at brookings. doctor, two things, number one as step that we may have led out of that report is these vaccines bring a 100% chance, or they're about, that you are not going to die of covid-19 and that is critical, let's not get bogged down in the 86%, 94, 95. number two, we're learning this new term, a breakthrough infection, it is depressing and it is unsettling, it is troubling that it can still breakthrough in a vaccinated person. how concerned are you? >> i am not concerned, and you are absolutely right these vaccines, across the board, the
11:45 pm
three that we have authorized in the united states as well as the one that are being used globally have all been shown to be pretty much 100 percent in preventing death, and that is really what the trial set up to do. i am not worried and i fully expected those breakthrough expectations, and i saw them in the trial data. we knew that it was possible, and i think that the daughter who gawked it said it that it is probable that the infection that they got as a breakthrough was much milder, i know we had some serious cases in that report, but 5800 cases, is less than a percent. i do think that it is not common, and it is also one of the reasons why we think that we will need to have a booster vaccine, it is not clear if these breakthroughs have anything to do with a variant or it was just from strains that had been at the united states earlier. however, we know that this happened, which is another reason that testing can go away, we do need testing, along with other treatments.
11:46 pm
they can be a critical warning sign for a canary in a coal mine of what might be coming and as well as information of how people are breaking through these vaccinations. >> and on the need for a booster, people have reacted today would surprise today's, other people have expected that we would've needed a booster all along. this is all new science, a year ago we didn't know what we didn't know, we know much more now, and that may include, hey by the way, everybody needs to get a shot in 6 to 12 months. >> yes, i think we have learned a lot, you know, i think we've heard this word, i've used it -- humility, just when i think i understand how we can recognize, treat, all of a sudden for hearing about these breakthrough infections in other countries, we're seeing, you know and 24 hours 200,000 cases in india when we had
