tv   The Last Word With Lawrence O Donnell  MSNBC  July 27, 2021 10:00pm-11:00pm PDT

10:00 pm
done deal. chuck schumer says he hopes to get the bill passed this week, that of course relies on republicans. we will continue to keep a close eye as this develops, frankly time is running out. that does it for us today, we will see you again tomorrow, time now for the last word with lawrence or donna. i think we probably and our viewers have seen what we thought was all the video we could see and hear all the stories we could hear about january six, but today blew my mind. i mean, there was more and it was that much more compelling in that much more serious and it lays ways to those people who say there's nothing more to hear here. >> i think congressman adam kinzinger spoke for all of us when he expressed his surprise at how emotional this hearing was for him and for us watching on television and i believe for anyone who was watching anywhere because you're right,
10:01 pm
we feel like we know this story and we have heard from some of those police officers, not all of them, and we have seen so much of the painful an agonizing video and we've had six months of coverage of it and so what's new could today bring and it was all new. it was an experience like we've never had watching any congressional hearing in history. >> i agree and you covered a lot of them. and those who capture best the motion of what would it be like to be at the united states capitol today is about to be on your show. >> yes, we're gonna have a full hour and much more coverage is going to be on that hearing. >> have a good evening lawrence, . >> thank you, ali. >> well, in today's story house hearing we heard things that we have never heard before in the history of congressional hearings. we heard, on live television, on this network words that have never been said on this network
10:02 pm
before and those words are going into print tonight. in the new york times where those words have never appeared before and those words are vivid descriptions of a president of the united states sending a mob to the capital to attack the congress and the vice president and to violently overturn an election. those words prove that the trump mob attacking the capitol was full of white supremacists and racists. racists who revel in the use of racist epithets as the testimony of officer harry dunn proved conclusively. testimony will be hearing later in this discussion. today's hearing was the first in american congressional history to describe the political followers of a president who came to the
10:03 pm
capital, to according to their own words, murder people and murder elected officials and murder the police officers who were trying to stop them and the trump mob described to some of the officers how they were going to kill them. no testimony like this exists in the history of the congressional record. those words, though it's exact words that we heard in testimony today will live forever in the congressional record and will be quoted by historians forever. from a purely technical, evidential standpoint, the single most important word said today were said by the very first witness who revealed beyond a shadow of a doubt who was to blame for everything that happens at the capitol on january 6th. >> it was a prolonged and
10:04 pm
desperate struggle. the rioters who attempted to reach the capitol were saying, trump send us. pick the right side. we want trump. >> trump sent us. none of the republicans who are boycotting service on this committee could've refuted that statement today. trump sent us. that testimony will never be contradicted by anyone in this investigation or any other investigation of the january 6th defense. many of the criminals now charged with attacking the capitol have already said in their own defense that trump sent them to commit their crimes. and so the committee that's charged with investigating what happened on january 6th and who caused it already has the smoking gun testimony against donald trump. trump sent us. the trump mob who were sent
10:05 pm
there by the president of the united states told officer michael fanone how they wanted to kill him. >> at some point during the fighting, i was dragged from the line of officers and into the crowd. i heard chanting from some in the crowd, get his gun and kill him with his own gun. >> officer fanone had a few to say about the republicans in the house and the senate who tried to block this investigation. >> i feel like i want to hell and back to protect them and the people in this room. but too many are now telling me that hell doesn't exist or that hell actually wasn't that bad. the indifference shown to my colleagues is disgraceful. being an officer, you know your
10:06 pm
life is at risk whenever you walk out the door. even if you don't expect otherwise law-abiding citizens to take up arms against you. but nothing, truly nothing, has prepared me to address those elected members of our government who continue to deny the events of that day. and in doing so betray their oath of office. >> officer gonell believed that the officers that trump sent were going to kill him. >> i, to, was being crushed by the rioters. i could feel myself losing oxygen and recall thinking to myself, this is how i'm going to die, defending this entrance. >> it took hours for officer aquilino gonell to find the time to respond to all of the messages on his phone from family members wondering if he was still alive.
10:07 pm
arrived at home >> at nearly 4 am on january 7th. i had to push my wife away from me because she wanted to hug me. i told her, no. because of all the chemicals that my uniform had on. sorry. i couldn't sleep because the chemical reactivated after i took a shower and my skin was burning. i finally fell asleep two hours later, completely, physically, and mentally exhausted and yet by 8:00 in the am i was already back to the capital.
10:08 pm
and i continue to work for 15 consecutive days after. >> officer gonell added another evidentiary points in the case against donald trump. >> it was his supporters that he sent over to the capitol that day and he could've done a lot of things. one of them was to tell them to stop. >> donald trump's first tweet to the attacker that he sent to the capitol was to encourage them while they were trying to kill officer gonell and officer fanone and officer daniel hodges, who we have all seen many times in video, this video being crushed almost to death at one of the doors at the entrance of the capital. we have heard his screams on the video but today, we heard him describe what happened to
10:09 pm
him in that doorway. >> my arms were pinned and effectively useless, trapped against the shield and the door frame on my right. with my posture granting me no functional strength or movement and i was effectively defenseless from the increasing pressure of the mob. directly in front of me a man sees the opportunity of my vulnerability and grabbed the front of my gas mask and used it to beat my head against the door and the strap was straining against my neck. he never uttered any words i recognized but instead opted for guttural screams. i remember him foaming at the mouth. >> some members of the trump mob tried to convince him to join them because he is white and they are white supremacists. others told him how he would die. >> one man tried and failed to build report with me shouting,
10:10 pm
are you my brother? another took a different tack saying, you will die on your knees. >> republican congressman adam kinzinger near tears praised the officers heroism. >> you guys all talk about the effects you have to deal with and you talk about the impact of that day. but you guys won. you guys held. you know, democracies are not to find by our bad days. were defined by how we come back from bad days, how we take accountability for that. >> leading off our discussion tonight is our -- jamie raskin he's a member of the january 6th select committee. thank you for joining us tonight after this important days work and i want to begin and with you as a
10:11 pm
constitutional law professor and a former impeachment manager in the second impeachment trial, donald trump the impeachment manager for the insurrection of the capital. from an evidentiary standpoint you obtained the testimony today that the people attacking the capitol were saying, trump sent us, trump sent us. that strikes me as an important point in your quest and your mandate to find out how this happened and who made this happen. >> yes, you're right lawrence that was a unanimous sense that these witnesses and other witnesses that we've spoken to and people saying trump sent us, we were invited to be here by the president and they were trying to use it as a defense saying we thought that the president had jurisdiction over
10:12 pm
the capitol and so we had i can tell people that i actually own your house but you're still trespassing when you go in. but what is so interesting about this is of course we already had robust bipartisan majorities in both the house and the senate and defining it as a constitutive fact that trump incited a violent insurrection, so that was already established but what this is about with the select committee is who organized it. who mobilized it. who financed it, how did they do it, why did they do it and are we still under threat today by these sources so we're gonna figure out these networks of association among domestic violent extremist groups like the three percenters, the oath keepers and the proud boys in the militia groups and with the trump white house and with different club cooperative's
10:13 pm
were gonna figure out how it was organized and how they were able to get this close to overthrowing the democratic constitution of america. >> have you had meetings with the justice department yet about how to avoid bumping into what is now there criminal investigation of the same thing? >> let me just say that we're not gonna do anything that would compromise in any way any individual criminal investigation or criminal prosecution but there are currently trends that have emerged and different patterns and interaction that they can educate us about that don't compromise the integrity of any particular investigation. >> let's listen to what congresswoman liz cheney said today. >> when a threat to our constitutional order arises as
10:14 pm
it has here, or obligated to rise above politics. this investigation must be nonpartisan. while we begin today by taking the public testimony of these four heroic men, we must also realize that the task of this committee will require resistance. we must issue and enforce subpoenas promptly and we must get to the objective truth and we must overcome the efforts that were already seeing to cover up an obscure the facts. , as you and enforces pianos promptly. one has the house learned about enforcing subpoenas against the trump team? >> they have no respect for the rules. they will fight us at every turn. an ex-president is at a very different posture from our current president. nobody has even remotely possible claim to fervor in the
10:15 pm
first place. this is not a game as my colleague liz cheney keep saying. this is not cat and mouse hiding go seek. there was a threat to topple the government of the united states of america, and we got a bipartisan, nonpartisan duty, to determine the truth and figure out what exactly needs to be done to protect ourselves. if they get in the way, we will exhaust every possible legal and legislative means to compel them to respect the rule of law, because everybody owes the sovereign there on his testimony. we ask for your testimony, come and testify. 99% of the time the american public would do it, nobody has anything to hide. if you start swarming and going to hide under your bed, and then we realize you are concealing the truth about something. we won't accept that. then you want to plead the fifth, come on out. otherwise, testify. >> they will all have the legal
10:16 pm
right to go to court to try to block the subpoenas which in trump world, is always used at minimum just to eat up time. you know you will face the challenge of time consuming judicial process every one of the subpoenas against trump -- >> we are not gonna waste any times in terms of issues we want to issue. we are determined to take everyone's testimony. people are refusing to testify against the american public and doing everything they can and triple back clips. that in itself will be revealing. we think we will have the documentary evidence that is enough to win the testimony to fill in the picture about what's actually took place on that day. one of the legislative changes we need to make in order to protect our electoral system, to protect the electoral college in the sense that we will be dealing with the electoral college, we have to
10:17 pm
maybe make this rather antiquated system work in a more responsive way. with donald trump, and the fanatics following him now, they basically view the electoral college as sort of a collection of booby traps that they will try to exploit in order to defeat the wave of the majority. we have to make sure that doesn't happen. >> congressman jamie raskin, thank you for joining us on this report tonight. we appreciate. it >> thank you so much for having me, lawrence. >> and coming, up the painful testimony of capital police officer harry dunn, who told members of congress in the country today, the racist hate members of the trump mob hurled at him, and other black police officers during the trump mob's attack. attack oh! are you using liberty mutual's coverage customizer tool? sorry? well, since you asked. it finds discounts

10:21 pm
shocking and painful testimony about the who racism of the
10:22 pm
trump mob who donald trump sent to attack the capital. testimony came with no warning today, as it was broadcast live. we can now warn you that this testimony includes racist language attributed to the trump mob. >> i told him to leave the capital, and the response they yelled was no man, this is our. house president trump invited us here. we're here to stop the steal. joe biden is not the president. nobody voted for joe biden. i responded, well i voted for joe biden. does my vote not count? am i nobody? that prompted a torrent of racial epithets. i like to keep politics out of my job. and in this instance i said, i voted for joe biden. am i nobody? r joe biden. that prompted a torrent of racial epithets.
10:23 pm
one woman in a pink maga shirt yelled, you hear that guys? this [bleep] voted for joe biden. then the crowd, perhaps around 20 people joined in screaming, boo, [bleep] [bleep]! no one had ever, ever called me a [bleep] while wearing the uniform of the capitol police officer. in the days following the attempted insurrection, other black officers shared with me their own stories of racial abuse on january 6th. one officer told me, he had never in his entire 40 years of life been called a [bleep] to his face. and that streak ended on january 6th. joining us now, former democratic -- eugene robinson columnist for the washington post. both are msnbc political
10:24 pm
analysts. jeanne, the officer done wanted us to hear that language. he could have coated it, he could have kind of white and out the words in a way. and the committee wanted us to hear that specific language that was used. it is now in the congressional record, it is there. the decision has been made at different times during the day to bleep out certain words which i completely understand, but there is a unique power in those words that i think the committee -- i personally think the committee was right to want washington in the country to hear. >> i think absolutely the committee was right because, that was the reality. that was real. they didn't treat officer dunn
10:25 pm
even the way they treated the other officers who are they trying to kill. he was not just apologies to embrace nbc viewers but he was the n-word, that's what he was. it's not even a millimeter before below the surface of this crowd, of this trump cult crowd of white supremacy, the racism, the anger, the rage at the fact that here was a powerful black man, in a position of authority, trying to defend the capital. it went just enough in the snap of the fingers from, he voted for the wrong guy to, he is
10:26 pm
beneath us. it went straight from -- the wrong guy, to 400 years of history. it's just a stunning piece of testimony. it is a stunning moment. it was shocking to, i think, i hope, everyone score. it wasn't surprising, it was not surprising. that's the experience that other black officers have described having that day. that's what this crowd was about. >> and clare, the confidence with which those people used that word, the east, as jean says, it just instantaneously came out of them. that is the way white racist americans talked 50 years ago, and 60 years ago, all over the place. it was all over my neighborhood in boston.
10:27 pm
you heard that everywhere, all the time, with confidence. complete confidence. that has disappeared in those neighborhoods. the confidence anyway, public confidence, about using those words that way has disappeared in those formerly racist neighborhoods in boston, some of which retain a lot of racism, but they don't have the confidence to throw that word around that way, at people like that. the way the trump mob has that confidence. >> there were so many ugly things that donald trump brought out of this country. maybe today we saw the ugliest. that is, as you say, lawrence, become the norm in this country that if you are a pure racist, an ugly, ignorant racist, you typically do not shout it from the rooftops. you wait until you are in a quiet place with other like-minded people.
10:28 pm
what donald trump did, he empowered these races to be violent, and i think you and i have seen a lot of congressional hearings. i don't think we have ever seen one as emotionally raw, as compelling, as riveting, as his hearing was today. the part that was most heartbreaking, you can see -- say it was adam kinzinger losing his composer, you can say it was the strength of liz cheney, you certainly could say it was all the police officers telling the facts of what happened that day, but that moment, when that black officer explained to america how he was treated, that should be the moment that all these republicans who are bowing at the knee of this juror, who was president for four years,
10:29 pm
that's what's -- when we should say we are sorry. we are very, very sorry we gave this guy the kind of power that he took and abused. >> let's listen to more about what harry dunn says was the experience of black officers that day. >> >> >> everybody, even sitting at this table, with a different battle even though it was all for it's the same war. as black officers, i believe we fought a different battle also. and the fact that we had our race attacked just because of the way we look, you know, to answer your question, frankly i guess it is america. it shouldn't be, but i guess that's the way that things are. it's not the side of america that we like. it's not the side i represent. >> donald trump said they want love and we're hugging and kissing the police officers.
10:30 pm
>> yeah, a big kiss. it's amazing, you know, it was officer dunn who is sitting in the rotunda just trying to process the day, later on that day, trying to come to terms with what was said. is this america? that was the question that was put back to him is this. to him and that was his answer. i guess it is. we have to believe our eyes and ears and again, yes, donald trump made it acceptable and feel power and showing that sort of old-fashioned mean racism as overtly as you possibly could. but he didn't invent it.
10:31 pm
he didn't put it on to all those people and he lied to come out and he gave it permission to come out in the always possible way. but we keep saying we can have so many unresolved issues about race in this country and if anybody ever needed any evidence then look at the confederate flags. don't anybody try to tell me that we talk too much about races in this country. we talked not nearly enough racism in this country and we said it's not even a millimeter beneath the surface. >> and senator mccaskill, the old saying that a picture is worth 1000 words and that crowd with the confederate flags each of those pictures is worth the epithets that i'm not surprised
10:32 pm
that that crowd was throwing around. >> yes, and i think frankly lawrence the visuals that are now really on everyone's hard drive, the confederate flags, the man hanging from the balcony in the senate, the guy with no shirt in the animal horns on and then the violence as they broke through the doors and smashed glass that has been touched by hundreds of people sent there by america to do their work. those visuals are never going away. and anyone who believes this is gonna get swept under the rug doesn't understand the power of visuals and i think this testimony today just absolutely augmented the visuals we've all seen but those visuals will
10:33 pm
continue to be the most powerful way america will remember what donald trump tried to do to america on that day. >> clear mccaskill and eugene robinson -- >> wait, i gotta tell you something! >> yes? >> i have to congratulate you on your emmy nomination. i know that just came out today and i didn't want to get off tv tonight without telling you how proud i am to work at the same network that you work and my most sincere congratulations on your nomination. >> okay, credit correction because this is what i look like when i give out an emmy nomination for the first time. it turns out it was in this time slot but it was for a special by jonathan capehart and so well deserved. and so i will bask in jonathan capehart's reflected glow for earning that emmy nomination in this very time slot.
10:34 pm
>> you may be fact checking me, lawrence, but you still deserve an emmy. >> well, i got one at home. >> clare mccaskill and eugene robinson, thank you very much for joining us tonight. really appreciated. thank you. and coming, up the justice department is not going to shield former trump officials from testifying about donald trump's actions leading up to the trump mob attack on the capital, january 6th. neal katyal joins us next.

10:38 pm
will not shield former trump administration officials from testifying to congress about efforts by donald trump or other officials to overturn the results of the 2020 election. jeffrey rosen who is acting attorney after william barr stepped down is among the officials being allowed to testify about reports that mark meadows pressured him to investigate false claims of
10:39 pm
voter fraud. another is jeffrey clark then acting assistant attorney general of the civil division who is accused of plotting to oust rosen with donald trump's help to make it easier to challenge the results of the election. the justice department said while typically resists such congressional inquiries, this time it's making an exception writing, quote, the extraordinary events in this matter constitute exceptional circumstances warranting accommodations to congress in this case. congress has articulated legislative interests in the matters being legislated namely the question whether former president donald trump sought to cause the department to use its law enforcement and litigation authorities to advance his personal political interests. the justice department adds that the white house agrees. president biden has decided that it would not be appropriate to assert executive
10:40 pm
privilege. senate judiciary committee chair dick durbin said to committee has been pushing doj for this waiver for months. now that we have it, will proceed to interview relevant witnesses asap so we can get to the bottom of this plot to enlist. doj and donald trump's efforts to overturn the 2020 election and joining us now is neal katyal, former acting u.s. solicitor general and -- neil, interpret with this means for us. >> well, i think our viewers recall that donald trump blocked a lot of testimony from executive branch officials using the stock turn calling executive privilege which has a long category used for all sorts of reasons to provide secrecy around the government decision-making usually at the time because you don't want basically courts or congress meddling in the midst of
10:41 pm
foreign affairs decisions or military decisions and the like. but executive privilege is always way verbal and the justice department today his side with president biden's support is executive privilege shouldn't be used here. and they make the make most common sense lawrence because what we're talking about here is the former president in order to advance his personal and political interest and that's what you flashed on the screen a moment ago. that's a pretty extraordinary accusation to make against former president, but here the justice department is saying that it's a serious accusation and we think the american public in congress deserve to know the truth about what happened and they should hear from justice department officials in the trump administration. those folks should tell their story to the congress about
10:42 pm
what happens. >> but if it seems like the language here is rather mild, they're saying advances on political interests and it can always be described as and it could be described in criminal terms and it could be turned into a criminal investigation, couldn't it? >> absolutely. in the justice department is not going to tip their hand in a letter like this and use criminal statute language now because that's something that will streep speak through an indictment if that becomes appropriate. honestly, lawrence, i thought it's kind of the strong language that we're hoping from the justice department now for almost half a year. a part that you didn't show shows that the accusations that donald trump conspired with the justice department official named jeffrey clark to possibly overthrow the election and the like, so there's a lot and there that's really really serious and so now those former
10:43 pm
officials will have to testify and possibly under this opinion in donald trump himself may have to testify because he doesn't have executive privilege. he can try to claim and claim he owns it and so on but the supreme court has said that executive privilege is for the incumbent and not for past presidents. >> but presumably donald trump will eat up sometime in court if he is subpoenaed. and many of these other possible witnesses might also eat up some court time if they are subpoenaed. >> donald trump will certainly try to eat up court time, that's all he knows what to do. he doesn't know how to tell the truth and so he will invoke every possible defense on all of this stuff. my only 0.2 lawrence is that it's going nowhere. the supreme court president on this is very very strongly against him now that the attorney general and the white house has made this determination of executive privilege. >> another decision by the justice department by the lawsuit suing mo brooks,
10:44 pm
congressman mo brooks for inciting the capital insurrection. explain that to us. >> this is a big deal. so there's a lot called the west fall act and it says you can't sue federal employees if they're acting within the scope of the federal employment. and in this lawsuit, representative eric swalwell, a frequent guest on your channel sued representative mo birx saying that brooks basically conspired to foment the january 6th insurrection. and get this, lawrence, brooks's defense was now what i did was in the scope of my employment as a member of congress. and the department said that's poppycock. preventing a coup turns out not to be in the job description of a member of congress and organizing an attack on your employer is not within the scope of employment. so what this means is that while brooks can still try to argue that this west fall act stuff, the justice department
10:45 pm
is coming against him and he's likely to lose it. and donald trump is also a defendant of this lawsuit and he's also invoked the west fall act and the justice department today didn't say anything about that. i suspect that they will in the days to come. there is some language and the opinion or decision today and the brief that they filed it suggests that they don't believe donald trump has any west fall act immunity, but that's gonna be the subject of a separate filing later. on but these two decisions today are pro rule of law decisions, florence, that basically say that trump and his minions, the truth is gonna come out. these folks will be held accountable. >> neal katyal, thank you very much for explaining all of that for us. i really appreciate it. >> thank you. >> and coming up, everyone involved is sounding optimistic about the bipartisan infrastructure bill tonight. that is next. that is next and one we explore. one that's been paved and one that's forever wild.
