11:00 pm
that bannon be held in contempt after hearing from lawmakers on the january six committee. also, her from good measure trump acolytes jim jordan and matt gates who showed up just to speak against the move to subpoena bannon. during one lively exchange, games made sure to push the former presidents lies about election fraud. do you accept that joe biden won the 2020 presidential election? >> i accept that joe biden is the president. >> do you accept that he won by 7 million votes, and if he did donald trump -- a margin that donald trump or landslide when he beat hillary clinton by the same numbers? >> i think that our election was uniquely polluted by these indiscriminate mail-in ballots. >> today just to remove any doubt republican house leaders officially reminded their members to vote no, on holding bannon in contempt. one of them used a trump to refrain to renounce the one six
11:01 pm
committees body of work. >> i think you're seeing most members get tired of the which hansen the games, let's focus on policies that affect everyday families right now, instead of these partners in witchhunts that they will keep going along. >> liz cheney who is one of the committees to republican making her case to her fellow lawmakers for their case against men. >> i've heard from a number of my colleagues in the last several days, who say they quote, just don't want to target on their back. they are just trying to keep their heads down. they don't want to anger kevin mccarthy. i asked each one of you to step back from the brink, i urge you to do what you know is right. think about how you will answer when history asks, what did you do when congress was attacked? >> should the full house find bannon in contempt, the speaker must then referred the matter to the justice department for
11:02 pm
possible prosecution. questions about how attorney general merrick garland intends to handle the matter will come up when he testifies tomorrow before the house judiciary committee. in the meantime there is the ongoing biden presidency after all, democrats are working with the white house on salvaging the presidents ambitious the mystic spending plan. today he was back on the road, the simon's hometown of scranton pa, to promote what is now a slimmed down version of his proposal to expand several social programs and address climate change. biden plan to raise taxes to pay for those proposals has now meeting increased resistance from wait for, democrat it later kyrsten sinema of arizona. there was also joe manchin of west virginia. according to new report from other jones mentioned quote, told associates that he is considering leaving the democratic party if president
11:03 pm
joe biden and democrats on capitol hill do not agree to his demand to get the size of the social infrastructure bill from 3.5 trillion to 1.7 five trillion. manchin has said that if this were to happen, he would declare himself an american independent, and he has devised a detailed exist ravaging for his departure. well today the senator offered his own colorful response to that report. >> it's -- it's -- . >> the way has the getting is this today on the policy fda has not authorize booster shots of both the j&j, and moderna vaccines. they also signed off on allowing americans to get a booster of a different brand of the all of it later on our hour. there is also a setback this afternoon from another white house priority for the first time this year, senate republicans that blocked efforts to advance voting rights legislation.
11:04 pm
>> every single republican senator just blocked this chamber from having a debate, simply a debate on protecting americans right to vote in free and fair elections. a little over a year ago, our country held the safest most accessible, most on the level elections in modern history. republican obstruction is not a cause for throwing in the towel. as soon as next week i am prepared to bring in the john lewis voting right to -- the floor. what we saw from the republicans today is not how the senate is supposed to work. the failure to get the 60 votes to just debate the measure means pressure on democrats to illuminate the filibuster is becoming even more intense, those two democratic senators i made you wait for earlier, sinema and manchin, getting rid
11:05 pm
of the filibuster are two reasons changing the senate rules it easier said than done. earlier on this network the former chairman of the republican party, said in no uncertain terms that democrats better figure out a way to lead. >> if someone landed on this planet from outer space, and asked may i see the majority leader of the united states senate, you know who they would take him to, mitch mcconnell. because mcconnell has played this as if he is still running the senate. he has played this as if he still has command, and control, of the operations meaning the votes. and what the senate business will be. and so from seven years of democrat, how did that happen. didn't we win? >> for my money the most important words spoken on all of cable television today, but with that let's bring in our
11:06 pm
starting line on a wednesday night, ashley parker pulitzer prize-winning for the washington post lisa lerer national political correspondent from the new york times, former u.s. attorney joyce alene who spent 25 years as a federal prosecutor for good reason she is one of the cohost of our podcast sisters in law with kimberly atkins store and barbara mcquade. good evening and welcome to you all. ashley, you get the tough one the white house is to put a charitably stalled. and democrats in the senate are to put it charitably, paralyzed. so why political impact is there if the democrat indeed do have the numbers for this vote against banning tomorrow? >> well, the key thing still i think is the stalled domestic agenda. with infrastructure and reconciliation. that is the key thing. but the vote against bannon does help for the democratic
11:07 pm
agendas in certain ways, after seeing what president biden came in to do which is sort of -- democracy in going after the january 6th the taxes incredibly important to this white house, and it is again, it doesn't detract from the sort of intractable problems they are nearing lean on a deal. but it is politically problematic for the republicans in that it reminds them of everything they dislike about the trump era, with of course culminated in a deadly insurrection on the u.s. capitol. that is not what republicans want to be talking about it all, and what will be in the news at least tomorrow. >> lisa, as you know starting tomorrow this process could go so slowly, and indeed bannon is banking on a growing so slowly
11:08 pm
this could be ten amount to the public opening of a bottle of molasses. what will be the impact on the work of the one six committee should this vote go against bannon tomorrow? >> well, they say they are talking to many many witnesses involved. i think the political impact will be a bit less than what's ashley is laying out, just as you point now for quite some time. well beyond the midterm elections. but i do think it is a test to congress, if they don't take this vote and they don't refer bannon to the justice for criminal contempt, it's unclear why anyone would comply with congressional subpoena. this is something that was about the very essence of our democracy, it was a violent attack on the institution itself, if they can't push this forward, i think there's real question there. i do think there is also question for the administration obviously, how doj proceeds
11:09 pm
with separate from the administration. but the administration has not been very eager to reopen these kinds of things from the trump era, even when it comes to the january 6th attack. they do not see it is gaining a lot of ground and independents, they know that what motivates their boasts poetically, but the numbers have fallen significantly they will be crucial voters in that midterm election. joyce >> joyce, let's get our hands dirty on this next one. those garland in your view have it in him, to go hard on this? his mo thus far has been cautious and measured. >> i think that's a good way of characterizing the way he has approach these issues, today doj released a statement saying that they would follow a
11:10 pm
document called the federal principles of prosecution and making this decision. so here is the stuff that garland will have to start off with, first we'll have to make sure that he has deficient evidence to obtain sustaining conviction against steve bannon for obstruction of congress. if he doesn't think he has the evidence that it's done right there. but look we have all seen the sort of obstruction crime committed in public, it seems very likely that the evidence is sufficient. then he will have to consider a few other questions, is it in the national interest or prosecute it? it would seem that preserving the independence of one of the three branches of government to make sure we have checks and balances sounds like national interest to me. the final step is considering whether there are alternatives to criminal prosecution that would be effective. that's where i think given the sort of restraint that we have seen, this justice department want to engage in then we falter, they may say that because congress out civil
11:11 pm
litigation options perhaps those are preferable to criminal prosecution. at the end of the day you have to begin somewhere if you are going to defend democracy, unless congress and its oversight function are going to become paper tigers, then merrick garland will simply have to break the mold and engage in prosecution. here >> well we shall see. ashley, your colleagues write this today about the president. those working closely with biden or familiar with his meeting say that the president is now more clearly setting guidelines where wet should stay in his social safety net bill and what will have to go. good idea? would've been a great idea month ago. what does that mean exactly do you think, ashley? >> well this is something lawmakers, democratic lawmakers, some of them at least, have been eager to see happen for a long time. for a while the president was conducting, listening sessions, bringing lawmakers in, making
11:12 pm
phone calls, conducting video conferences with them, but as the senator who is very aware that he did not like it himself when he was in that chamber when the president came in and lay down the ham. now he is not quite laying down the hammer, but he is as we recorded giving a clear sense of why he would prefer, where he thinks both moderates and progressives can compromise, and that is something they find very helpful. when you have the president of the united states say early childhood education is absolutely crucial we, maybe willing to lose the two years of free community college even though my wife will be furious with me as a community college professor herself. that gives a framework for these two sides to move forward. so on the whole of very welcome at this one as the deadline moves. >> lisa layer as we move on to voting rights which was the big depression trigger for so many democrats looking on, what are their options now?
11:13 pm
>> well, like this is once again the brady bunch marshall marshall marcia, it's manchin mentioned manchin, so the thinking is that this vote all republicans on board. those ten republicans needed to pass something pass a vote straight bill, that obviously did not happen in the question now is whether he will be more open to eliminating the filibuster. there is no evidence that that is the case, i also think voting rights are as critical of an issue before the health of our democracy and to the democratic base, it's not one that is getting so much public attention alice from the white house much more consumed with these negotiations over the economic bill. you don't hear the president out there giving these big speeches on voting rights very frequently, or talking about it much at all. they say that action behind the scenes, legal action, is more important than those kinds of
11:14 pm
speeches. but it's one of those how much momentum is there particularly when democrats simply do not have the votes in congress unless they can we have been the filibuster. there is no evidence as of now that that is something that is going to happen. >> joyce vance, i think this moment calls for the following, as a southerner, as they -- . what's at stake, what will happen to voting rights in this country, what we are watching happen any absent movement that the federal level? >> we are watching an absolute erosion of the right to vote. that erosion is not equal across the board, it is often targeted at people who are republican and conservative state legislators believe will vote democratic. that means it is targeting communities of color, people
11:15 pm
who have lesser financial means. so we have a lot of new laws coming out of state legislatures, and they all restrict the right to vote. they do it in the name of preventing fraud by in large, but that fraud has never been proven to exist. in fact the evidence is to the contrary, and it's really just a bogeyman others legislators are using in order to annapolis that the press the right to vote. him you may need to give an identification that is difficult or expensive to get, you may no longer be able to drop off your ballot in hr box or use drive up voting a for instance you are somebody who's mobility issues, or illness. it may be more difficult to get a mail-in ballot. you may find it harder to register, you may be removed -- if you skip an election. when you take all of these suppressive law's, in combination, it paints a very bleak picture of the landscape for voting in 2022 and going forward. ryan, here is the linchpin, we
11:16 pm
used to have the voting rights act which was a mechanism doj could use to keep these overly red restrictive, overly -- laws to go into effect. the history of discrimination but the voting rights act was advocated by the -- the second of the two acts that the senate will consider is essential to reestablish the voting rights act. a two without some sort of change to the filibuster seems to be doomed to failure. >> exactly why i asked. with great appreciation to our starting line tonight, ashley parker, lisa lerer, joyce alene think you all for starting us off. coming up this evening republicans take a stand on democracy today, while they voted against voting rights. that is kind of a stand. james carville and mike murphy standing by to talk to us, later he treats covid patients and he recently got covid himself. it is for good reason that one of the docks that we check in

so you can stay ahead. get started with a great offer and ask how you can add comcast business securityedge. plus for a limited time, ask how to get a $500 prepaid card when you upgrade. the fbi's been investigating call today. this issue for the past, since it happened. exactly where it's supposed to, 600 people have been charged. investigations are supposed to happen in the executive branch, congress has an oversight function, but democrats don't want to do that. the actions of the january six committee are a complete
11:21 pm
assault on americans liberty. >> it remains to be seen if any republicans except for the two people on the january six committee will vote to hold steve bannon in contempt. it's an important night to have back with us, james carville veteran democratic strategist who rose to national fame with the clinton evert, he's cohost of the politics war room. and mike murphy -- political future at the university of southern california, who cohost the hacks on tap. good evening. james, we'll talk about lsu football in the head coach at some other time. tonight it is way too important, i'm gonna begin this a segment with a dramatic reading. when it was first written it was written by charles schultz, and its stars were chill charlie brown and lucy, it's been rewritten for modern times in the atlantic tonight, by rice olbermann. kids at home want to be writers right like this. this is about the senate well this afternoon. quote, after vice president
11:22 pm
kamala harris gaveled the vote close, majority leader chuck schumer declare that his party 's fight was far from over. he said the senate would soon call up the new voting rights act -- john lewis. a bill that is likely to meet the same fate as the freedom to vote act. schumer invoke senate history in a several war amendment -- to show how i important cause to be. but he had no more news to announce, no next apps that would break the impasse on voting rights. the voluble moment and had nothing to say, and when schumer finished his brief speech the senate moved on to something else. james, however it might be on this network i think it's time for this question to be fairly asked of you. are the democrats up to this? >> well, as long as you of the filibuster's, we have 50 votes. it's very hard to do a lot of things you want to do. senator manchin was involved in this, i know he supportive of
11:23 pm
voting rights and normally -- call off the filibuster. it's just simple math and a simple senate vote. and, it's really horrible in this country. trying to convince people to vote for someone, now all of the politics is about who votes, to stop people from voting. it's ridiculous. but i suspect that senator schumer is not gonna let this go, that they're gonna revisit in some place or another and this game is not over yet. >> mike murphy, same question. >> well, i agree with james, bottom line is they don't have the votes. but i don't think they're sobbing in the war rooms tonight on the democratic side because while they don't have the votes they have the issue. so, they're gonna keep bringing this thing up and founding away because it'll help democrats the cold hard calculation of politics. one, it'll help rile up their base and help minority turnout in the midterms, where often
11:24 pm
it's not as high. and to, it will play in the suburbs, we talk a lot about the house but the suburbs are where a lot of the senate branches are going to be decided. so, i'm enough of a cynic that leader schumer will be delighted to pass it, he's equally delighted to have the issue, bowing like agung now, which is what they're gonna do. >> mike, is any part of you surprised that, let's just go and ahead and prognosticate about tomorrow, the huge majority of republicans in the house are gonna take a dive on behalf of steve bannon. it's badly groomed hill to die on, is it not? >> yeah, it's disgusting. we're talking about rule of law here. and except for a handful, the brave few, the rest of them are just running for the tall grass. a lot of them know better. but it's not exactly a profile -- republican side on this one.
11:25 pm
>> james, i guess you are beyond surprise about something like that. >> yeah, jim jordan who knew this pervert wrestling coach -- he doesn't remember -- that committee has all of the records, they know what's going on, liz cheney said that steve bannon resolved in the -- i'm not surprised wants to stop this because he's got his hands all over this mess to. but that committee is moving ahead, if bannon doesn't go then mara garland has to lock him up toronto. you can't decide that you're not gonna comply with a subpoena in this country, that's absurd. >> james, while i have you on the topic of the democrats, i want to play for you so more of michael steele. and i think its own kind of frog oiling experiment, maybe some of our viewers a forget, as you listen to this remember
11:26 pm
a used to run the republican party, here he is today talking about secrets from inside their locker room vis-à-vis the democrats. >> let me share a little bit behind the curtain of how republicans look and see some of these things, strategically. i've been in that strategic space. we know the democrats won't act. it's not complicated people. call their bluff. democrats won't call their bluff, on nothing, or anything. they talk, they wine, they wring their hands, they wipe their eyes, and republicans are saying they're going okay. because it changes nothing. where is the accountability? how do you hold them accountable? how do you force the issue? >> james, you have never been above tough love for your party, that's confirm for your party. >> yeah, i love governor mike,
11:27 pm
he's a great guy. i've become friendly with some of these democrats, mike of and i have been friends for a long time. -- how confused and disorganized -- but he makes a good point and if we don't rally around this six january commission and just take bannon and just a roman jail. the only person i feel sorry for is his cell mate, you can imagine with the guy smells like, jeez. but that's their problem. they you don't need to fool with these people, if they don't comply, then merrick garland lock him up. >> i'm sure, i'm a when i'm sure about bannon's role, should just buy the cost of wood workbook. >> of course. , the guy was indicted for freezing these poor people and build a wall and he says he's not gonna do it. i think that benny thompson and
11:28 pm
liz cheney are fooling around again, i think bannon, i hope i'm proven right, and merrick garland better get off the dime here. the justice department exist for one reason, not the insecure shun or anything like that, it exist to enforce the law of the united states. that simple, that's his job. when people violate the laws of the united states, like bannon is doing, then you bring down the whole thing on them. it's simple. that's why we have the justice system. >> mike. >> i couldn't agree more, we need leg iran's, rocket posters, grab him hallman. this should not be ambiguous. if i were steve bannon i'd get off the route right wing nuts -- and i had google cheney family. if she had her way she probably have -- so, i think the committee is going to play hardball here,
11:29 pm
they have the right to do it. and the cause is just. this is not another political squabble will people are throwing subpoenas around as a cpr trick. this is the real deal. and i think they'll get the federal cops and hall is ass in. -- trying to be cute about it. >> you guys are never boring, that's why we keep having you back, that's why we're lucky both gentlemen have agreed to stick around while we have a break. coming up, former president obama getting involved in the virginia governor's race, there is polling out there that explains why you bring in a big gun right about now. gun right about now. you don't get much time for yourself. so when you do, make it count with crest pro-health. it protects the 8 areas dentists check for a healthier mouth.
11:30 pm
the #1 toothpaste brand in america. crest. for china you have a lot of
11:31 pm
11:32 pm
let me get this straight. you've got an a.i. strategy to deliver a better customer experience, that will help us retain our customers and even grow our business? how much is this going to cost? here's the figure. 59. 59 million? no, five9. as in five9 intelligent cloud contact center. they won't just power our transformation. they'll fund our transformation. yes, yes! exactly!
11:33 pm
what are you waiting for? ♪ ♪ responsibility this year not only are you choosing your next governor also making a statement about what you believe in those that country. i don't care terry mcauliffe, and as a governor nobody would work harder for the state. >> so it's very good reason that is the latest ads the mcauliffe campaign is putting on the air will the latest monolith poll has terry mcauliffe in the dead he with the republican challenger glenn youngkin, 46% apiece with less than two weeks to go, thankfully still with us james carville, mike murphy. mike, do you agree with obama that this is a national statement election? >> well, you know, elections
11:34 pm
are always more complicated than that particularly governors elections. right now the country is so polarized i think there is some truth to that. the problem is it's helping youngkin. biden's numbers are down, there's all the stumbling going down with the domestic policy agenda. it looks like the casual voters in the suburbs, the key swing group, that they are taking over the democratic party. youngkin is not a scary trumpian republican, just in his tone and his action, so you've had a come back in the suburbs, and it's a tight race if i had the bet i would bet he would win this thing. >> james, the same dynamic we've seen with national democrats ice where we just witnessed in virginia. i think mcauliffe may have assumed that leave paula blake reaction to the use of a flag from one six, at a youngkin rally, a flag that may have been used to be a police
11:35 pm
officer, would be abhorrent to most people. i think the democrats continue to assign and assume attributes to people that i haven't been the case since bonanza was on the air. what do you make of where this races? >> first of all, it's close, so it's a toss-up. you add terry it's been very blunt that we're on a very tight race. democrats need to be activated. i do think that trump is a -- of course the thing you could be running without trump and he'd china slippery but, it's close. there is no doubt about it, i am scared to death. and as that other democrats should be in the solution to that is people in virginia,
11:36 pm
call them and asked them to vote, if you are virginia column and ask them to vote. it's a close race. >> james the rule of thumb in your line of work as if you're explaining, you're losing. and i heard mcauliffe a week ago, complaining about the senate. the u.s. senate procedure and so on. that's probably not a great marker for a race for governor in the commonwealth of virginia, to go deep on the filibuster. >> while terry is the kind of can do guy, let's just get in a room and work this out. i think it was some level of frustration at that. but underneath that, was they kind of level of truth. -- some momentum coming out of washington, something happening. but i'll be frank with you, and
11:37 pm
i'll be frank with the viewers in this program, it is a tough race, i've spent 47 emails on -- saw do anything i can to help him, he's a dear friend, and a great governor. >> gentlemen i can't thank you both enough for taking our questions and being candid about your answers tonight, as always. it's a good reason why you are both good friends of this broadcast, james carville, mike murphy. coming up booster shots and vaccines for kids, we will get an update on our favorite indiana er doc on his situation, and the situation unfolding in his hospital.
11:38 pm
11:39 pm
use a single hr software? nope. we use 11. eleven. why do an expense report from your phone when you can do it from a machine that jams?
11:40 pm
i just emailed my wife's social security number to the entire company instead of hr, so... please come back. how hard is your business software working for you? with paycom, employees enter and manage their own hr data in one easy-to-use software. visit for a free demo. hon? first off, we love each other... as we mentioned the fda today cleared booster shots for moderna and j&j while authorizing the mixing of vaccine brands. this is not easy of course, a cdc panel meets tomorrow to then make its own recommendations before the agency makes a final decision
11:41 pm
for all of us people. the national average of new covid cases is falling, over 64 million illegible americans have yet to get at least one shot. don't forget the campaign to vaccinate young children has yet to begin. back with us again tonight doctor stephen in jasper indiana also involuntary clinic or faculty member at indiana university school of medicine. so doctor, last time we spoke you had just been diagnosed with covid, you had been thrown unceremoniously into the basement by your wife, i'm curious as to how you are feeling? are you still in the basement? and have you had your booster shot? >> hey, brian, yeah i'm feeling good. my onus was super mild. based on having been vaccinated before that's what i was expecting, i just had a stop that i couldn't breathe in iowa
11:42 pm
as a mild cough. i came out of the basement, i'm broadcasting her gun because my little girl's home from centrist school visiting and i'm excited about that. i'm staying out of the way. i did get my booster, unfortunately i got my booster the same day that i got diagnosed with covid. the first act got them to manic anyways, so my booster probably didn't help me a whole lot. i did cross over from pfizer to moderna when i got a booster, not really because i was thinking too far ahead, it was just a matter of convenience i had a moderna booster that was about to go into the garbage, and i redirected it to my arm. >> well i'm glad you said that because anecdotally we know of people who are screaming together boosters anyway, despite the 65 hand -- threshold. we know people who are mixing brands, including a lot of people who feel they have the need and maybe don't have the means, or the access, to get
11:43 pm
their brand on -- . so obviously you feel that this is okay on the part of the government? >> i do. i think that as we see a few nice studies that have been published showing the crossing over, a really robust immune response and that's what we're looking for. intuitively to mimic sense that if you are hitting it just slightly differently, from the activated in virus -- mrna tweaking your immune system slightly different ways, i can't see where it hurts. but you know intuition doesn't always play oh in science, so i think it's important that they are rigorous about this, but i do think it will come out that crossing over his fine. >> got my flu shot a week ago. didn't think to ask, wasn't at all interested in what brand it was, do you think that in the following years as we start dealing with this, if it indeed
11:44 pm
becomes an endemic, brand loyalty goes away and we just talk about it as the covid shot? >> yeah, i think the way things are going every time a headline comes up it shows that something is just a slight bit better on this or that. i think you have your moderna gang, pfizer gang, hey what about us. i think you will see a lot more random and, i got my flu shot a couple of weeks ago as well and i have no idea what brand it was from, or who made it, i just put it in my arm. >> coming up the next hurdle here, and this is an especially difficult communications strategy challenge for this white house, on top of what we have just witnessed as no one needs to tell you living in a red state. that is the drive to vaccinate children starting at the age of five. i want to play for you some of the comments of dr. fauci on this topic. >> in the era of delta,
11:45 pm
children get infected as readily as adults do, and they transmit these infections as readily as adults do. if we can get the overwhelming majority of those 20 million children vaccinated, i think that would play a major role in the mishitting the spread of infection in the community. >> so dark, no one needs to remind you how many anti-vaxxers are out there, how many vaccine doubters have been converted into full on anti vaxxer is because of what people are hearing and seeing politically. a lot of them where the parents of 5 to 12 year old kids, i think this might be a very steep climb for the administration to deal with. >> i do agree, i think we better be guarding ourselves for battle here. you've seen the tape, i'm sure you've played the tape of the school board meetings and they're just talking about masks. now as we transition into
11:46 pm
vaccinating these kids, which is by the way hugely important. the oig, the original variant of covid, the transmission seemed to be decreased somewhere and some of that was because the social distancing, in closing schools, like doctor fauci said delta changed all that. we know these kids are taking home to the middle aged parents, michael her. this round of covid this delta variant that we have experience, has been particularly terrifying for me because the people in putting in the hospital are suddenly michael her, my generation, gen x, slightly older, slightly younger, but people my age suffer and die of the thing. initially was the very elderly the nursing home patients, but this is heading home. i would not want to be a school board member in a red state, in the next few months, especially if the states start actually demanding it like they do the
11:47 pm
mmr, and all the other vaccinations to come to school. >> we have indeed played those tapes. doctor steven sample, companion good healthy you thank you for having us in, thank you for taking our questions as always. >> thank you. >> coming up for us, because one person's free speech is seen as another person faith speech, there were protest in l.a. today over something a being beamed into american homes as we speak. e speak.
