tv The 11th Hour With Brian Williams MSNBC July 19, 2021 11:00pm-12:00am PDT
in our country is pushing our country in exactly the wrong direction. in fact it was anxiety that hammered the stock market later that closed down over 700 points. worst one day decline so far this year at one point the market was off nearly 900. the biggest concern today was the potential the virus has to once again derail the recovery. >> anything that adds to the uncertainty of the face of reopening and the pace of growth is the thing that could undermine the stock market. >> now, the rapid rise in daily cases has prompted the american association of pediatrics to issue new guidance ahead of the coming school year. the doctors advised, quote, all students over two years and all staff should wear face masks at school. on the vaccine front, the administration campaign has largely stalled about half 1
million shots have been given out every day. that's down for more than 3.3 million at our peak while the cdc describes the current surge as a pandemic on the unvaccinated. there is growing concern about vaccinated people getting the virus nonetheless. so-called breakthrough cases. florida republican congressman firm buchanan revealed today he's tested positive after being fully vaccinated. kara eager, and alternate on the women's gymnastics team also tested positive for the virus just days before the tokyo olympics. her coach said she was vaccinated two months ago. doctor fauci says even if someone is infected after vaccination, they are still much more likely to avoid serious illness. >> the vaccine still protects you against infection, but not completely. you are very highly protected against severe disease if you're vaccinated.
where is if you are unvaccinated, then you have a reasonable chance of getting into trouble. >> in another closely watched story tonight, five house republicans have been appointed to investigate the one sixth riot and insurrection. minority leader kevin mccarthy selected these members in the republican caucus and they are roddie days of this from illinois, jim jordan of ohio, kelly armstrong from north dakota, troye knows from texas. banks, jordan, and now voted to overturn the 2020 election results. >> you've got a mix from an entire company. >> i never talk to donald trump about this. >> house speaker pelosi still has yet to sign on on these appointments before the committee's first hearing on july 27th. today, a federal judge sentenced the first final in a
defendant in the one six insurrection. he got eight months in prison and they wanted florida man paul hodgkin's sentenced to 18 months. images from that day shown clearly carried in trump 2020 played inside the evacuated senate chamber. hodgkin's pleaded guilty last month with a single official proceeding. also tonight, senate majority leader chuck schumer is moving forward with and wednesday vote to start debate at least on the bipartisan infrastructure bill. measures are still being written as we speak. senate democrats are also not giving up on federal voting rights bill. the rules committee led by senator amy klobuchar, democrat of minnesota, is holding the u.s. senate's first field hearings in two decades to try to bring voting rights issues to the public's attention. first stop, atlanta georgia where one witness described the obstacles the voting in georgia. >> this past year i had to go to extraordinary lengths to
accomplish the simple but consequential task of passing my ballot. i, along with thousands of georgians, had to wait for hours in order to cast my vote. in fact, i had to go to the polls twice in order to vote. >> with that, let's bring in our lead off guest on this monday night. philip rucker, pulitzer prize -winning senior washington correspondent for the washington post. he is highly anticipated new book written with his colleague carole leonnig, called i alone can fix it. it generated a lot of headlines even though it doesn't come out until tomorrow and his coauthor carol leonnig will join us a bit later for a full conversation about it. also here tonight, a.b. stoddard, veteran washington journalist associated editor and columnist for real deal politics. and former --
joyce vance who spent years is a federal prosecutor and she also happens to be a cohost of the podcast sisters in law with kimberly atkinson and barbara mcquade. good evening and welcome to all and philip i'd like to begin with you and your be. this new virus surge, let's take the political consequences, the disappointment aspect of it out of the conversation and dwell on public health. i am guessing that the biden west wing is about to address this with some urgency. >> certainly, brian. and we've seen the biden administration and the health officials throughout the government speak with increasing urgency in recent weeks about what the cdc is calling the pandemic of the unvaccinated. the fact that so many americans, tens of millions of americans, many of them in red republican-leaning states are unwilling to be vaccinated in part because of misinformation that they're spreading on social media and in conservative media.
this is a growing, urgent concern for leaders in washington and they feel that the infection rates and further complications from california to the east coast could be continuing to rise as people resist the vaccines and so i think we're going to see in the coming days the president as well as others in the administration step forward with increasing pleased to get people vaccinated and get the shots and try to push past this as the delta variant becomes a really severe threat to the country. >> a.b., let's talk politics. i brought something for you. here's ari fletcher who has something tonight. let's discuss on the other side. >> he thinks he's fdr junior. license to go on a massive trillion dollar spending spree but he's not. that is not with the 2020 election was about. he's out of sync with the american people. >> so, a.b., tomorrow marks six months since the inauguration
of joe biden and one is tempted to ask hearing that how the effort to arrive at an attack line against biden is faring these days on the republican side. >> well, brian, we have watched both parties get concerned about deficits when they're not in power. but president trump was the first republican leader to completely abandon any kind of fealty to small government principles and debt reduction etc, and so the party largely gave up on it for voters who supported donald trump give up on it. that's with the biden administration is betting on, that a lot of spending on infrastructure and other programs, the vaccination distribution and the child tax credit, all the things they've done in the first few months are not only popular in their party and, the democratic party
but some of the republicans in the trump coalition as well. so you will see especially among those not early fletcher but several senators hopefully running for president in 2024 if donald trump does not, a lot of talk about filing debt and spending by the democrats and their socialist programs no matter what passes and the final price tag of the reconciliation infrastructure bills. you can count on it. >> joyce vance, staying on brand, it turns out to be a florida man who receives the first felony sentence for his role in the violent attempts to overturn the election results on one six. what do you make of the eight-month sentence and what might it mean for all of the others that are pending? >> the eight month sentence was clearly a disappointment to prosecutors.
they asked the car for an 18-month sentence and argued pretty vigorously about the consequences of january 6th. but the judge distinguished this defendant from defendants that will see down the road saying that he didn't want to burden this particular individual with the conduct of those who may have come to him for sentencing later on, whether the judge is correct or not there i think the sentence really sends the wrong message. it's clear that prosecutors are intent on these future cases that involve people who committed property damage or acts of violence and will watch the sentences actually amp up dramatically. simply for someone who is involved in property damage, the lowest sentence would be 41 to 51 months so i think people who were disappointed today need to suspend judgment a little bit longer and let prosecutors do their job. >> phil rucker, i don't need to tell you thanks to your
reporting that democrats on the left would love to see people like schumer and biden play rough for a change, especially right now. so with that in mind what is going on in the u.s. senate? what do we mean when we say that is early as this week they may begin debate on infrastructure? >> well brian the bipartisan deal for an infrastructure package that we thought was in the cards a few weeks back appears to be in real serious jeopardy right now at this hour. there are some republicans wavering on how to pay for this package in part because of pressure from the outside conservative groups that are against any additional spending increases. and what has this done is for structural president biden to move forward with the vote to begin consideration and debate on this bill. that's what schumer has said today. he plans to do that later this week and it speaks to the
growing impatience both at the white house against biden's advisers were also with democrats in the senate and progressive liberal leaders who are allied with the administration and these senators. they feel like enough is enough and were coming on the august recess. it's time now for schumer to call this vote, to call the republic who can blush and get to that vote margin and push this bill forward. we're gonna see whether the votes are really there when schumer begins the debate on this infrastructure bill. you know, a lot of people on the left feel like they've waited for too long now for a bipartisan deal and that it is time to just bulldozed through and try to get this package passed. >> a.b., also on the hill let's talk about this committee and talk about questions are you viewers will be wanting to answer. does pelosi have straight veto power over republicans
elections? i'm asking this because we learned that mccarthy's choice, to so many people in the and serious name that stood out on the list was jim jordan. what happens there and is it conceivable jim jordan could end up on a witness list? >> well we don't know what information they have that would bring him to a witness list that's within the realm of the possible but we don't know. to, jordan's always gonna be on kevin mccarthy's list and nancy pelosi knew that all along and this is a mandate from president trump. kevin mccarthy doesn't even have to consult with the president to know that he had to put three one six truthers on this panel and then throw in some, quote, credible people that would stand up and would
be credible and suitable to the majority of people in this country who thought that the insurrection was as severe as it was and are not in the maga umbrella. so he was always going to pick one or two people who voted to certify the election and he was always gonna pick jim jordan and several others to be a combat fire from minute one trying to discredit this committee and fight for donald trump. and the first thing he said was that he named the committee, jordan said the entire thing is to make up lies about donald trump. so this is exactly what we expected and i don't think pelosi knew exactly this is what mccarthy would do, he's going to veto the choices. i think he's just going to proceed. she has liz cheney in her one very credible republican and she's just gonna go on and let them drive a clown car on the
side. but it was never going to be serious. it was always gonna be an effort with the donald trump narrative that it's just another love fest. >> joyce vance from a clown car on the side, take us to the intersection of law and public health and i'm asking because of the accepted portion i have from the washington post today. he writes in part the governors have used their powers to mandate mask wearing and social distancing to fight covid-19. they ought to now take the next logical step and mandate vaccinations for the use of indoor spaces outside the home. well first of all, let's say it together. that will go over well but secondly, joyce, to your life's work with talk about the potential thicket of legal issues that opens up. >> it's quite a thicket. i think it will make a bees clown car look like it was in the amateur leagues.
because of course we know that any effort by the biden administration to impose some sort of a mandate on a national level will be met with endless litigation. in reality, it's a tough objective because governors controls so much of this terrain and there is little that the administration can do if governors in red states don't choose to reimpose mask mandates, don't choose to require vaccination and take other logical steps to combat delta. that's what happens when we live in a world where public health has become fully politicized. with the administration could do and it's very an interesting point is that they could look at federal sort of operations like travel and require vaccination to enter an airplane, or federal buildings. that would certainly be something that would help to bring the virus under control. there would be litigation. there's a bit of uncertainty right now, brian, because the
vaccines are still approved on an emergency basis in that places the administration on a bit less of a secure footing. once that approval late is stepped up to permanent approval, then will likely see more urgency in requirements that people who are members of the military and federal employees have mandated vaccination like people do for so many places that are communicable and so many walks of life. the real challenge here is the messaging challenge and whether this administration can overcome what is certain to be a political hurdle with better messaging than they've proven capable of today. >> indeed, it's already out there on display every night. are starting line for a new week, a these daughter, joyce vance, phil rucker, our great thanks for starting us off. start doing for us critics are praising phil rucker and carol leonnig new book tomorrow.
and apparently detachment from reality is a running theme with the last president is concerned. we'll ask the authors about the many revelations within. and later, unvaccinated americans once again filling hospital beds, battling covid, fighting to breathe, one of our leading physician standing by to take our questions tonight. all of it as the 11th hour is just getting underway on this monday night of the new week. night of the new week
can fix it. >> those words, now the title of the revealing tell all book documenting the final year of the administration of donald trump, two months after biden was sworn into office. pulitzer prize-winning reporters philip rucker and carol leonnig sat down for an hours long interview with the 45th president at his understated mar-a-lago club in florida. among several alarming admissions in their new book,, i alone can fix it, they write this, and we quote, trump regrets his response to protests last summer in minneapolis, portland, seattle, and other cities. quote, i think if i had to do it over again, i would have brought in the military immediately, he said. remaining with us is our friend philip rucker, joining our conversation is another friend of ours, it's washington post colleague carol leonnig,
pulitzer prize-winning investigative reporter. as we mentioned, the pair have written yet another book, a new one on the trump presidency, i alone can fix it, donald j trump's catastrophic final year. it comes out tomorrow wherever fine books are sold. good evening to you both and congratulations for this smattering of advance reviews that we read this afternoon. and tonight, carol, tell us about the last thing we raised here. trump's regret over not calling out the military following the murder of george floyd, during the blm protests and a subset of that question, who was gonna tell him if he wanted the second marines or the 82nd or the 101st to take positions in the city of seattle? >> wow, brian. that is a two part question. it's important. let me deal with the first part first. you know, because you've covered this administration and
did very well at 11:00. the president, the former president, barely regrets anything and in fact in our interview with donald trump, phil and i learned that he really doesn't regret anything about 2020 except for one thing. though it was one of the most catastrophic years we've seen in our history, his big regret is that he didn't unleash active duty military troops on the people who are exercising their first amendment rights to protest the death of george floyd and the chronic systemic racist system in which many black men and women have been killed at the hands of police. that was his big sadness. now, for the second part of your question, what we learned and what was so chilling to us was that many insiders in the trump administration felt very strongly that they had to basically band together to keep
donald trump from sinking active duty troops on american and all sorts of cities. seattle, portland, washington d.c.. philadelphia, new york. it felt so frequent a demand in a request for the president that know barr told aides that he was tired of going to the white house because he knew what the conversation was going to be. let's send troops in. the president wanted to varnishes image and look like a tough law and order guy because he wanted to win reelection. and all of those people inside the administration's operate through that. and they worked to stop him. >> of course he made up for a lot of that in lafayette park alone. and phil as i read it, you're scheduled interview at mar-a-lago was for an hour and it went for two and a half, or thereabouts. for people who will never get
that distinct pleasure of sitting down for that long. a, what's it like? and b, what shocked me most during that conversation? >> well, brian, it was an entirely bizarre scene for caroline me. we came into the interview and trump wanted to hold it and what is effectively the lobby of mar-a-lago at the dinner hour. so scores of his dinner guests were parading past us as we were trying to interview him about the serious substance to matters of his presidency. he is so fixated on the 2020 election that he kept reverting back again and again and again to the election and the conspiracies that we all know are not true. the falsehoods that he won arizona. the falsehoods that there was fraud in fulton county georgia but in trump's mind it was so real and he would tell it to us with a sort of animated cadence. he thought people were gonna finally figure out, he said i'm trying to get the word out here
about the election fraud that simply doesn't exist. so what you have at mar-a-lago or what you have on the day that we were there at the end of march is the king of republican politics sort of in his break of doom with an imagined reality all around him that just doesn't stack up to the facts or anything else. and by the way, he's also field with grievance. he brought up again and again people like bill barr and mitch mcconnell and paul ryan, the former speaker of the house, he even invoked the late senator john mccain. oh people he made fun of and said we're unintelligent. >> he blamed them for things that had gone wrong and he also blames mike pence, his loyal vice president for not doing what trump considered to be the courageous thing on january 6th by trying to overturn those election results. the former president is still bitter about that. >> carol, back to the subject of the military and donald trump and had this been a full on third world style coup, it
is plausible that he would've wanted to call out the military to enforce whatever his election goals were. tell us what leaders at the pentagon were willing to do in the events of such an order? >> there were so many things the very senior military officers and officials were in a near panic about and feared that donald trump would do. things he felt with due to basically maintain his grasp on power. and that had been a feeling that had been growing for months. it did start, actually, on june one for general mark milley. he believed the president would really show no remorse and no regret, not be worried about breaking any laws in order to deploy the military for his own political gain. and with the joint chiefs all agreed was that they would
start planning for how to block donald trump's worst impulses. ones in which he might try to create chaos and fear. again, to keep power, or indeed engage in a coup. but they wanted to do was basically stop him from using the military. he decided that maybe they would have to resign one by one. in essence, a reverse saturday night massacre to stop the president and they were talking about this privately as something that really could happen. and they were quite glad when inauguration day came, that they did not have to use that secret plot. >> our guest to our audience are both pulitzer prize recipients and it strikes me that donald trump is now come up with the title of their last two books about him. he, of a very stable genius and now he of i alone can fix it. we'll get to our next line of questioning with both of our guests coming up after this break.
taylor leonnig our guests tonight. carol, this one is for you. this is about a scene in the book where the secretary of defense learns about operation warp speed that the vaccines are coming along. and here is how you guys write it. esper was initially delayed it when he was told he was authorizing contracts to produce two promising vaccines. but the secretaries then turn to concern. if the president learned they had millions of doses produced, would he or a white house adviser start demanding they administer to the public before the vaccine had been fully vetted by the fda? carol, this dovetails with the reporting in this book that the presidents concern over the coming pandemic was more about polling and public health and it's clear that people around him were concerned about that. >> you know, everything with donald trump, especially so in
2020 is seen through the lens of how it benefits him. and in the year 2020, many of those insiders got kind of too close a shocking look at just what that meant. a callousness towards the lies of americans. a focus on brushing his own image for the reelection to make sure that the polls were good. how am i doing in the numbers? those were his priorities. and in this moment that you described, it was stunning to learn that the secretary of defense, upon finding that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and upon hearing that they are looking at vaccines with an 80% effectiveness rating, his reaction is first happiness and then panic. what if donald trump finds out and what will he do? what will the white house do? what will trump's closest aides want? what will the president want? they all know with the
president wants. he wants a vaccine before the election because he wants to have delivered on that promise and he wants to get reelected. but actually esper is worried that the president may order people to get the vaccine before it is properly vetted, before it's safe, and before the trials are completed. and he starts wondering if they should try to hide this light under a bushel basket. >> phil, talk about the call that mike pence made on one six over the to the pentagon which according to the body of reporting on that day is one call more than donald trump trump placed on the subject. >> that's exactly right, brian. this was a moment of national crisis. the capital was under siege by violent rioters and you would expect the president of the united states the commander in chief to be active. to be calling the pentagon, to be trying to get control of the situation. but are behind the scenes reporting in this book shows
that president trump spent those hours in front of a television set watching what was unfolding at the capitol. and essentially paralyzed from doing his duty as the commander-in-chief. instead, you have vice president pence, who is in a hideaway effectively. he was under threat physically at the capitol. his family was in danger. people were chanting, hang mike pence, all around him and it was vice president pence who is calling the pentagon and who was saying get these troops here now and get this building under secure. get this building cleared out of these rioters and importantly he refused to be evacuated from the capital because the vice president thought it was essential for the american people that he remain in the capital to do his job and certify the election whenever the senate and the house could reconvene. it's a chilling bit of reporting it speaks to how little trump did in that moment. he effectively melted away. >> carol, let me ask you
another question about process. there's so many people floating around washington who want a little dose of -- geography. they won't distinctive working for trump off of there otherwise stellar resume's. and some of them are vaunted people. esper barr milley pence for that matter, ivanka and jared. when an author comes along, how do you guard against becoming their resume burnish-ing tool in the scope of a massive project that you two were involved in? >> i'm really glad you asked that question, brian, and i'm really glad you use the word guard because that's exactly how phil and i felt in these moments, in these interviews. sometimes we sat with people for seven hours at a time and we were on guard. for people wanting to make everything a little more gossamer about how they handled the situation. make themselves look a little
more brave or perhaps a little more resolute. and then facts, you know, i think we all know with the standards for serious journalists are but i'll repeat them here. we don't have anything in our book that we couldn't corroborate independently. every time that it's possible we asked our sources for additional people who knew this information. we sought out those as well. we asked our sources for calendar entries and text messages and we were pretty pushy and knows the and they showed them to us, to help again make sure that what they were alleging it's something that we can take to the bank. and if we cannot find that kind of information, if we could not find trust in what they were alleging, we didn't publish it. now i want to say there's another reverse element to this. and that is, people who want to be associated with donald trump for their political benefit. they want to tap into the political base of donald trump. some of those people were
running from us as well because they had raised serious questions about donald trump's ability to lead, about the insanity of some of the things that happened in the final months of the presidency. in fact, confiding into people that they were quite afraid of what donald trump would do and they have tried to deny those things to us. and we've corroborated them. but they tried to avoid being critical of the president because it's important to them politically to be aligned with him. >> two friends of our broadcast serious journalist both philip rucker and carroll leonnig, our thanks for coming on on the eve of your books release to our audience. the book is out tomorrow. it is, i alone can fix it, donald j trump's catastrophic final year. best of luck with it to both of you. thanks for coming on. and coming up for us, a top doctor on what we all need to know about these breakthrough
if i asked any single patient that's in a bed right, now they will tell me that they wish they had gotten the vaccine. 100%. they have told me personally that they wish they had gotten it. that they should've gotten it, and they didn't. >> covid cases now on the rise in every state in our union. 97% of those hospitalized are unvaccinated. on the misinformation surrounding the vaccine, our next guest writes this. quote, the monster is much bigger and formidable than facebook social media. if the biden administration is serious against countering disinformation, it must be willing to take on the empire and launch a counter offensive. it's important to have back with us again dr. peter hotez,
he's a vaccine scientist has been hard at work developing a low-cost covid-19 -- of the serves as a developer for texas children's and is the dean of the school of tropical miller descent at baylor. just take for our audience who might not be familiar with you, take a brief moment here at the top and all the good people watching how and why it is in your life you've become familiar with the anti-vaccine crowd. >> i wish it were for good reasons, brian, thanks for asking i'm a vaccine scientist and pediatrician and devoted my life to developing vaccines for poverty related diseases. i'm also working with adult kids including racial who has autism and a few years ago --
debunk the fake assertions from the anti-vaccine lobby claiming there's a link and explaining the mass evidence explaining there's no lack of plausibility and what we know about the genetics of autism and unfortunately that makes me public enemy number one and so it caused me to be the o.j. villain which means original gangster villain. . >> we're proud of it. and for you, this might be an incredible experience and i'm guessing there is a set of anti-vax playbook because you've lived long enough to see employed in the autism fear and now you've lived long enough to see it in your other life's work and that is suppressing active disease like this. >> yeah, that's right. and so what is happening with the anti-vaccine movement is i'd like to think maybe in part
because it helped defuse a little bit the links between vaccines and autism and i think to re-energize about six or seven years ago, to re-energize, they politicized and linked themselves out to political extremism on the far-right. initially, the republican tea party organization's political action committee started forming in texas and oklahoma. where i am and now you see it play out nightly in the conservative news outlets and if you listen to the cpac conference or couple of weeks ago the horror show that unfolded there from a very conservative congress members claiming it's nothing more than a political instrument of control. and this is why we're in this terrible terrible situation right now where we have whole regions of the country, not just outbreak areas but entire regions of the south central u.s. and the southeastern united states where people are not getting vaccinated out of defiance and we're seeing this
massive surge i'll predictable when you have that combination of delta and low vaccination rate so it's totally heartbreaking because all of this could've been prevented. >> and speaking of heartbreaking, let's talk about these breakthrough cases. for everyone watching tonight, people who may have been under the assumption that if they're vaccinated, they are okay, period. and of sentence. what is the truth about these breakthrough cases. >> it's not too far from that, actually. no vaccine is perfect. the original lineage, the pfizer and moderna vaccines are almost as good as the j&j vaccine. we saw out of israel and the uk the numbers were not as robust anywhere from 64% to preventing infection and around 80% in scotland and in england so that gave people cause for concern but in terms of serious
infection it's just as robust, it's just as good so what you're not seeing our hospitalizations and deaths and appreciable degree for being vaccinated but you are seeing some people who are either asymptomatic or have low symptoms and that's something that we're gonna have to continue to watch for particularly for those immunocompromised who may not respond to the vaccine as well. immunocompromised who may noby w exercising common sense means in this. and where are the best environments to slip on a mask. it is not as we have learned the end of the world. doctor please agree to come back on our broadcast whenever you're on with my friend nicole wallace. i stabbed i'm doing and i never missed a conversation. doctor peter hotez has been our guest again tonight. our thanks for taking our questions on this. coming up for us this evening. mr. bezos will be out of the office tomorrow, for that matter he will be out of the gravitational pull of granite
