tv   The 11th Hour With Brian Williams  MSNBC  June 30, 2021 11:00pm-12:00am PDT

11:00 pm
they 162 of the biden administration and indeed nbc news reporting tonight the manhattan da's office and the new york attorney generals office together have obtained indictments against the trump organization and its longtime cfo, allen weisselberg. as expected, the charges said to be tax related and are expected to be unsealed in court tomorrow in manhattan. washington post was first to report the news tonight, the paper adds this. weisselberg is expected to surrender thursday morning at the office of manhattan da cyrus vance. he's expected to be arraigned later today in front of a state court judge. the trump organization will also be arraigned, represented in court by one of its attorneys. weisselberg has reportedly been under pressure to cooperate with prosecutors and flip on one donald trump. the investigations of course continue. -- also today, in an extraordinary
11:01 pm
development the pennsylvania supreme court tossed out bill cosby's conviction. bill cosby is home tonight for the first time in three years. he was convicted on three counts, aggravated and indecent assault in 2018 of drugging and assaulting andrea constand. today, the court said that cosby should not have been charged and barred a retrial. today, cosby spoke about the ruling. >> you can see how powerful lists many of us feel. this is for all the people who have been imprisoned wrongfully, regardless of race, color, or creed. >> cosby continue to deny any wrongdoing and rhea constant for her part called the ruling, quote, of concern in that it may discourage those who seek justice for sexual assault in the criminal justice system from reporting or participating in the prosecution of the
11:02 pm
assailant. meanwhile, the washington post also on the board tonight with a report of over a dozen new arrests in the january 6th attack and riot in our capital. it's the most in a single day. the feds also revealed new charges against several supporters of extremist right wing groups. this, on the same day, the house voted along largely party lines 20 22 to 1 92 indeed create a committee to investigate the riot and insurrection. just to republicans, liz cheney and adam kinzinger cross the aisle with the democrats. it comes as the new york times released an investigation into what happened on that day. the times reviewed thousands of video from january 6th and compiled a chilling documentary. >> orders of been battling a handful of officers at the stores for almost half an hour. when rioters came through the
11:03 pm
crept reach the stores and pull them open. and then an act of duty marine corps officer, christopher warner garrison keeps it open for them to flood in. [noise] just as elsewhere, this crowd is a mix of die hard trump supporters and also organized groups like the oath keepers. the movement formation here towards that east side entrance. we are also tonight following the controversy over new york city's mayor primary, to use a technical term, it's a mess. it only has to do with who's going to lead the nation's largest city. the city's board of elections mistakenly counted 135,000 test ballots and was forced to rescind its preliminary results set out late yesterday. nbc news reports that the election officials refused
11:04 pm
offers of support from the company that recorded the software. mayor candidate catherine garcia expressed her concerns about these botched results. >> i am concerned that it undermines peoples confidence. we need to make sure that the vote is protected and that we get the result that new yorkers went to the polls or mailed in at the end of the day. >> updated results show a close race with eric adams in the lead with catherine garcia and maya wylie running second and third. we think donald ranch felt died today in some of the hazy -- in some of the obituaries held tonight he's being remembered as a man of the highest integrity intellect and bureaucratic talent and history will also remember him as a man who never suffered an hour or day of self doubt. a man who walked this into a disastrous war, an elective war in iraq under false pretenses.
11:05 pm
and sent americans off to fight the support or armor that they needed. some of them indeed pay the ultimate price. donald rumsfeld was 88 years old. we're also keeping an eye on the latest surfside florida on the ongoing search for survivors of that condo building collapse. 18 lives have been lost and 145 souls are still unaccounted for. tomorrow, as you know, the president and first lady will travel to surfside florida. with that, let's bring in our lead off guest on this wednesday night, philip rucker correspondent for the washington post is highly anticipated new book written with his colleague, i alone can fix it, donald j trump's catastrophic final year. it's due out on the 20th of july. a.b. starter, associate editor and columnist, and paul butler a former federal prosecutor at the department of justice and these days a professor at
11:06 pm
georgetown law school. your beat currently and former you covered trump through all manner of controversy. and to repeat, for those who don't know, something you know well. his company is a small family outfit at the end of the day. what are they saying about what's coming tomorrow and what must they be thinking? >> well, brian, as you can imagine it's a great deal of concern within the trump orbit and within the trump family about the indictments that are expected tomorrow. this could be bruising for the company itself. clearly, it will also be breezing for mr. weisselberg the financial officer there. keep in mind how much of donald trump's personal brand of politics, his personal family wealth is tied up in this company. and if this company were to be charged there could beat financial repercussions in terms of loans that become too
11:07 pm
that could eventually lead to bankruptcy by the company. but in importantly it's the real danger for donald trump, weisselberg could begin cooperating with the state prosecutors in that could potentially lead to -- while trump's allies say this week that they're pleased to see that the former president is not himself going to be charged as far as we know tomorrow, we know that this investigation is not over and that there could be another chapter to it and it's one of the reasons we want to see donald trump react so strongly and his public statements tonight. it's some of the latest in the series of investigations to take him down. >> paul, counselor, i have one for you. here's how the new york times puts it tonight. interviews with the current and former associates of weisselberg as well as a review of legal findings paints a portrait of a man whose
11:08 pm
unflinching devotion will now be put to the test. weisselberg has become so woven in the fabric that when mr. trump moved to the white house in 17, he interested weisselberg along with the former presidents adults sons with running his company. so tomorrow, poll, with the unsealing of the indictments what happens next? >> i'll be looking at the actual charges and especially the money that is involved and what he tells about the evidence. the defense is portrayed as a petty and political investigation about taxing with fringe benefits but the prosecutors who responded with us speaking indictment that describes the crime, not just this tax evasion and the trump organization in the cfo intentionally stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the government. the prosecutors narrative will
11:09 pm
be that the trump organization is essentially a criminal enterprise with a consistent pattern of fraud. and bryant, the money is important because that determines what the potential exposure is for weisselberg and it's a very small or relatively small amounts. even if weisselberg is convicted, he's not going to jail. it's a lot of money though so he could potentially face years in prison and that would be powerful incentive for him to cooperate with the prosecutors and deliver donald trump. >> a.b. stoddard, nation turns its lonely eyes to you. it leaves the folks watching tonight for this question. how is this all sitting? how is it likely to sit with members of the republican party that you cover? >> well, i think that it was very clear today from a tree with jason miller who is step down from a position of spokesman for donald trump
11:10 pm
right now but is one of his most loyal insiders basically saying the politics of this are such a problem for the democrats. they thought this was about trump but instead these people are going after an 80 year old man over free parking. something to that effect. this is a political opportunity and he always sees things this way. he has believed for months that if he continues to maintain that he's a future candidate that any kind of prosecution of him looks politically motivated and will continue to help him raise more hundreds of millions of dollars as he has done since the day he lost the election. and i think he has taught his base that everyone who is against him and anyone who brings any facts that aren't favorable whether that's the
11:11 pm
law or the media or anyone, it's a part of the deep sea and that includes bill barr. former attorney general mitch mcconnell and the republican leader in the senate who basically trump called to oust tonight in an interview with sean kennedy. so you can expect that kind of a public relations front from them going forward and i think you'll expect all of the ranking power to follow and from the likes of their vote today on a one six commission of their loyalty to the big lie, i just can't imagine that they won't continue to defend him and say these judges are going after him and all of it is fake news. >> indeed. sounds like a strategy. phil black, or help a shift our focus to tomorrow. we're probably going to hear and read the phrase consoler in chief a lot as the bidens had to surfside florida. joe biden famously an irishman long on empathy those deep on
11:12 pm
these occasions as i expect him to tomorrow. remind us the stakes of tomorrow's visit and if you would, remind us why he comes home to. >> well bryan, the president is going to be heading down to visit the scene of that conduct collapse. a real travesty in florida. keep in mind by the way that not only are the victims families shaken there but the people who live in similar buildings are scared for what may happen to their building and you will probably see as you noted is somebody trying to console not only those in that community but he's a president with real empathy and with compassion, and those attributes are not things that we saw on display from his predecessor, president donald trump who often struggled in moments like this. notably in that hurricane. after the hurricane in puerto
11:13 pm
rico when he went to toss paper towels in the obviate audience. i think will see a different approach from biden and will be for biden a chance to really show his emotional connection to the citizens of the country. but he is coming back to washington to a very difficult place. is infrastructure bill hangs in the balance as negotiations have been in fits of starts and it's not necessarily a great trajectory in this hour. another concern as well with the covid situation in this country are planning a big fourth of july celebration in the white house this weekend and keep in mind the vaccination rates in the country are not quite as high as he hoped or as he even expected that they would be by july 1st. >> indeed, a good reminder that this was the target date weekend after all. hey paul, a huge change of subject. a lot of stories especially busy folks are coming home and trying to understand and that
11:14 pm
is the fact that bill cosby is home tonight for the first time in three years. as i read the coverage as a civilian non lawyer, it appears that the pennsylvania supreme court may have been right on the law. however, unfortunate people view the prospect of bill cosby getting out of prison and enjoying his freedom. tell our viewers what this ruling does or does not say on the merits about bill cosby's alleged actions. >> so the state supreme court found that cosby and the former district attorney made a deal that cosby would not be prosecuted, and that way, he would not be required to testify in a civil lawsuit brought by the victim. without this deal, cosby would have taken the fifth. the former fda says he made a deal because he didn't think there was enough evidence to charge cosby in a criminal case. this is the best way for the
11:15 pm
victims to get some measure of justice. this isn't a legal technicality the court found that cosby's constitutional rights were violated when his immunized testimony was used against him. and it wasn't a closed case. six of the seven judges agreed on the merits, although a couple of the judges put out -- brian, i can't imagine what they are going through but it's also important to understand that the court is not finding that mr. cosby was innocent. just in his trial was not fair. >> a.b., back to the hill for you to this new house select committee. other than pretending benghazi never happened, of course the difference is this undertaking an investigation is real and will bring about real results, how could the republicans continue to ignore this going on in their midst?
11:16 pm
>> well, brian, we've talked about this since january. many of them are very concerned about what we revealed in terms of even complicity from their own membership in the house republican conference. let alone what president trump was doing in the weeks leading up, and what he did in those terrible hours. and so, they really want to avoid it as much as possible. the only reason that you saw two members vote to support the committee today versus the ten who voted to impeach then president trump for inciting the insurrection is because in those ensuing months leadership has made it clear that the best thing that you can do is back away. even if your as clear as what happened on january six as anthony gonzales was over the weekend when trump went to ohio to support max miller, to
11:17 pm
challenge him in his primary because of his impeachment vote, you can back away from this committee by saying it's a process that i don't think it's going to work well. it really has nothing to do with the incitement or insurrection or trump simplicity. just that it is not a good process. it just sounds too partisan and it sounds like it's not fair. and so, it was a vote but it was easy to oppose. it's disappointing to see two people on the republican side supporting it. it's going to be from start to finish a pick on pelosi pr front from republicans. every single step of the way. it's not just president trump. they really don't want to learn more about what might be happening in their own membership in terms of the connections to the perpetrators that day and what went down. i wasn't at all surprised and
11:18 pm
you can continue to expect all of that as a narrative, as the committee undertakes its work. >> thanks to our starting frontline to our viewers, you have just heard a little bit of tomorrow's news and analysis tonight. phil record, a.b. stoddard, cal butler, great thanks for starting us off tonight. coming up for us, the former u.s. attorney we have standing by. we'll talk about what these reported indictments could mean for the trump organization's future. then later, our friends eugene robinson and matthew dowd are with us. they'll talk about the, futile proud and, the brave. we're talking of course about the two house republicans willing to vote for that select committee to investigate the attempt to overturn a presidential election by course. all of it as the 11th hour is just getting underway on this wednesday night. ght.

11:22 pm
confirming a manhattan grand jury today filed criminal indictments against the trump organization and its longtime chief financial officer. for more on what may lie ahead, we welcome back to the broadcast truck rosenberg, a doj veteran former u.s. attorney, former senior fbi official as well. also happens to be the host of our msnbc podcast, the oath. so chuck, what are you looking for tomorrow and after say 2 pm when the indictments are unsealed, what's chain of events does that then kick off? >> let me take the second
11:23 pm
question first, brian. after folks are indicted or perhaps an organization. they appear in court. they are arraigned. they are presented with the charges. they plead guilty or not guilty. in this case, not guilty. and the judge will set a status the hearing or scheduled the next appearance or a trial date but nothing much will happen tomorrow in court if in fact they do appear. it's rather perfunctory. what will i be looking for. the first question to ask, paul butler referred to it earlier. i want to see the detail of the indictments. i want to see the story. there are two ways to indict a case. one is just to recite a statute, a barebones recitation of the elements of the crime. but another way to do it is what we call speaking indictment and which we lay out the entire story and scheme right,? who was involved, how are they involved, what do they do? the elements of the crime have to be there as a matter of law.
11:24 pm
but speaking indictments tell a story and i will be looking for the story. >> no offense, check, but we're all around here glad you're in our lives in never want the feds in your life as a general rule and a practical matter. so let's talk about allen weisselberg. what is it like when you are the focus of the feds? what is going to happen in his life? >> no offense taken, i get it because nobody wants to wake up with the fbi at their door. allen weisselberg's life if he is charged tomorrow will change dramatically. now, it's really important to look at what he's charged with and with a possible penalties are, and often on television we talk about the maximum statutory penalty which is not really the wait cases are sentenced, assuming a conviction. we also have to look at the sentencing guidelines according to the state of law and the amount of money involved so
11:25 pm
it's very possible that while allen weisselberg could be charged and tried and could be convicted and sentenced, he might not be looking at long time in prison. and how much time he's looking at might determine whether or not he decides to cooperate. that will give us some indication of the leverage that the new york state authorities have over him and how persuadable he might be to turn or flip on others. >> if the company ends up getting nicked in this case it's been theorize that of course all bank loans go away. how damaging, how detrimental could this be to what is, and i repeat, at the end of the day a fairly small family run enterprise? >> right. really good question and it goes to the heart of something that prosecutors call collateral consequences. something that we have to think about before we charge an organization or a company or a
11:26 pm
corporation, brian, are the collateral consequences. i know you'll remember back in 2001 when the accounting giant, author and thurston was charged. the organization and the company was charged with the and run scandal. also, 30,000 people lost their jobs when he was convicted ironic side note, his conviction was overturned by the supreme court based on faulty charlie instructions. but for a small privately held company, there are still collateral consequences. there are employees, fewer than arthur anderson but nevertheless employees. there are creditors, there are banks that have loaned money to the trump organization and to your point make all those loans a highly leveraged company could be at risk. i don't know that it will go out of business. i don't know that it will declare bankruptcy. i don't know with the banks, and creditors will do. prosecutors have to think about those collateral consequences when deciding whether or not to charge an organization.
11:27 pm
i am sure that they thought of that here. >> to our viewers, this same wisdom is available by downloading our french podcast chuck rosenberg couldn't ask for more detailed answers to our questions thank you as always for being our guest tonight. another break in our coverage coming up today's house vote proves yet again. the party of law and order is now simply donald trump's political party. political party. i would've called yesterday. but... i could've called yesterday. but... i should've called yesterday, but... would've, could've, should've. we hear that a lot. hi. i'm jonathan, an insurance professional and manager

[noise] the mark now has direct access to capital entrances. >> i can't believe this is reality we accomplished this -- >> stop following orders, they said that the police officers. part of the thousands of harrowing videos from that in-depth documentary analysis by the new york times that offers new insight into how january 6th happened and why. with us again tonight, eugene robinson, pulitzer prize-winning columnist for the washington post and matthew dowd, the founder of country over party in the past he's been the chief strategist from the bush cheney presidential campaign back in oh for, among other roles. and matthew, i want to begin
11:32 pm
with you because of these two republican votes in the house. that is as good as it gets these days. the question is, how long can that caucus continue to insist the earth is flat? and i know the point you made to nicole almost today that i will call truth in labeling. you are asking for everyone to stop blaming trump and start blaming the republican party. start blaming the modern gop. >> yes, and i think that's a fundamental part that we have to end up with. to meet there were so many people that thought donald trump if he loses once integration comes for joe biden it will all be better and it will all be better. it's actually worse today. in my view it's worse today than it was before election day. and i think as we keep going forward, even if donald trump was to leave the planet and we never heard from him again,
11:33 pm
this is who the republican party is today. they wouldn't only be doing this because of what donald trump is doing. they would be doing it because the vast majority of their voters have been told this and lied to and also acquiesced to it. but then we participated in this and i think that is what's where all of us, whether we're voters or active in politics or whether we're in the media, have to really fundamentally call this out. there's only one actual democratic party today. a party that leave believes in democracy today and that's the democrats. i want to political parties that believe in democracy. we don't have them today. we have one that's a talker see and one that is democracy. one that doesn't care about holding an insurrection accountable and one that wants to hold it accountable. and those two things at that point have nothing to do with donald trump in 2022 and 2024. >> eugene, i want a sample of
11:34 pm
some very powerful remarks today in the well of the house of representatives by, let's put it this way, the only sitting member of congress with five bullet wounds. >> my hearts racing right now and i am trembling. in part because i'm recalling what happened to me on january 6th. and i thought, at that moment, i my god i survived diana but i am not gonna survive this in the house of democracy in the country in which i was born. >> congresswoman jackie speier of california who famously was left for dead on the tarmac at what later became the jonestown massacre in ghana. eugene, not only did the republicans who voted the other way here those remarks and liquor in the eye, surrounding them in the gallery. the same gallery that was
11:35 pm
evacuated on one six, more members of metropolitan pd and capitol police who were there that day to protect the lives in that chamber. that is a lot to ask for it to vote against all of that. >> and yet republicans have heard the stories told by police officers. they've heard how they were beaten within inches of their lives and many of them seriously injured, suffering ptsd from what was really an unprecedented and awful changing events. january 6th was a very very big deal and pub beacons want to pretend either didn't happen and without even bothering to find out exactly what it was.
11:36 pm
how it was organized, how it was financed and exactly what happens. that's appalling and with that said that is the fault of the republican party of donald trump. it was not no office now. and democrats have to deal with that and so we have to proceed with a select committee that will investigate to the best of its powers, and that is what we're left with. it shouldn't be this way but this is where we are. >> so matt, i have an impossible task for you in all of 60 seconds, what concerns you most about these immediate months ahead of us? >> what concerns me most is that this is going to get worse than what happened on january 6th. because we have people that have been pushed and instigated
11:37 pm
and lied to and believe some crazy stuff and there's 300 million guns in america that we have spread across the country and that really concerns me. i think we can get through this but i think it's going to take a series of losses on the republicans part but in the immediate i am concerned that january six was just a preliminary events for worst things that can happen then loss of life in the course of this. and it's a very scary thing. >> we've asked both of these gentlemen to stay with us as we get in a break. coming up today it was texas. he will head to florida this weekend. it's a lot, but that is the life of the former president these days. these days

♪ ♪ ♪ the lady says the voices in your head and the lyrics gloria was the song that walked donald trump out to the wall in south texas today, marking the first visit in history to the southern border via twice impeached former president. more than that, the event wrapped up with ymca blaring over the loudspeakers because no matter how serious the topic in trump world, everything is a rally at the end of the day. still with us, eugene robinson and matthew dowd. eugene all kidding aside, what does it say about this republican party that more republican members of congress made that trip down there to see the former president today then voted for the one six select committee? >> it's everything you need to know about the party. i mean, first i don't think
11:42 pm
it's a coincidence it's appearances by the impeach president coincide with this ominous legal activity and indictments that are coming tomorrow. i guess it's a trump organization and weisselberg i think and i think this is going to be in his defense effectively against all sorts of legal action. i am conducting a political campaign and i'm being persecuted for political reasons and so he's out there doing politics. but what does it say about the republican party? it says that the party is basically a cult personality and that it is putting what it sees as short term gain, potential short term gain in 22 and 24 ahead of any principles
11:43 pm
if it remembers where principles are. >> matthew, christine o in north dakota staying on brand sending 50 members of that state guard and ready reserve to the southern border paid for by one wealthy donor. is this what we're doing now? as someone asked from twitter tonight and i'm paris praising, can bezos up into a billion bore the national guard and put together a suppression force on the other side down at the border? since one? the >> well that one of the most scary things that happens. that's when one of those scary things happened that a sitting governor would use a national guard, one for political purposes and then have it paid for by russia's version of an oligarch which is as i said earlier today, sounds so much
11:44 pm
like russia and it's autocracy mixed with wealthy people using parts of power to do what you want to do in this. but this to me is another example. kristie is not doing this because she wants allegiance to donald trump. she is doing this because it's not that the republican party is a cult of trump. it is. but would it really is is a white grievance party and if the republicans who want to be president in 2024 want to be reelected in the primaries want that and that's why they're doing stuff on the border and let me give you an example of greg abbott the governor here. greg abbott took money out of the texas budget which states are normally doing and put it on the border. and you know what he didn't do? he didn't fix the electric grid who went down here for a week and a half and everyone gets out in the cold and lost the water. so he is paying for -- but not fixing the electric grid in texas. it's just so out of whack but
11:45 pm
it has to do with the changing diversity of the country in a layer of white populations that is aggrieved by that. and that is what fundamentally the republican party. is today. >> matt, 20 question. is it fair to ask where is the secretary of defense, the attorney general and perhaps a federal judge or two before a state national guard is hired for a gender reveal party in somebody's backyard to put an end to this traveling across state lines to international border? >> that's a great question brian. i think the biden administration is great but i think it's actually slow to understand and slow to respond about what we're facing today. this is a fire alarm fighter and dealt with immediately and so when this occurred in the rumor of this occurred, i am surprised that somebody in the administration or attorney
11:46 pm
general didn't immediately come out and try to stop it from happening. even if it had gone through a court and happened six months from now, i think there's still people that think that this is all okay. it's not okay. the only way to deal with it is to deal with it quickly, fast, and firmly. >> talk to these two gentlemen all evening long. many nights of the week. eugene robinson, matthew dowd, it's up to our viewers to guess which painting behind which gentlemen is an actual original. coming up it's never been far from the thoughts of americans this week we're going to update you on this nightmare that is still unfolding in surfside florida because it has been a week today. week today hey, i just got a text from my sister. you remember rick, her neighbor? sure, he's the 76-year-old guy who still runs marathons, right? sadly, not anymore.
