11:00 pm
in february of 2020, would eventually become part of this country's larger reckoning with race and injustice. the case came under national scrutiny only because a cell phone video of the shooting emerged. arrest follow but the path to prosecution was marked by delay and allegations of misconduct for months. arbery's family press for action in this case. today, that same family welcomed the verdict. >> back in 2020, i never thought this day would come. but god is good. >> yes he is. >> and i just want to tell everybody thank you, for those who marched, those who prayed, most of all the ones who prayed. >> yes lord. >> thank you god. [applause] >> let's keep fighting, and let's keep making this a place better for human
11:01 pm
beings. all human beings. >> today is a good day. >> the jury system works in this country. and when you present the truth to people, and they can see, it they will do the right thing. and that is what this jury did today in getting justice from ahmaud arbery. >> the three men now convicted murderers are facing up to life in prison. they have also been indicted on separate federal hate crime charges. the president today issued a statement calling auberry's killing, quote, a devastating reminder of how far we have to go in the fight for racial justice in this country. >> he said my administration will do the hard work to ensure that equal justice under law is not just the phrase emblazoned in stone above the supreme court, but a reality for all americans. vice president kamala harris, also released a statement that read, quote, these verdicts ended imported, message but the fact remains that we still have work to. do the defense council chose to set a tone that cast the attendance of ministers at the trial as intimidation and dehumanized a young black man
11:02 pm
with racist tropes. the jury arrived at its verdicts despite these tactics. also tonight, there is a new report about the progress of the select house committee that's investigating the capitol riot and insurrection. in the four months of the inquiry. the committee has issued over 40 subpoenas, they held one public caring. they have interviewed about 200 witnesses. and they have held one steve bannon in contempt. washington post reports, quote, chairman bennie thompson has previously said that he hopes the investigation wraps up in early spring of next year. as the midterm elections approach, it's a one step forward, two steps back dance that may take longer than democrats want to yield real results. >> meanwhile the right house grappling with the public that is increasingly alarmed at the pace of inflation, even amid science that the economy is continuing to recover and the labor market remains strong. weekly jobless claims failed to 199,000 last week, that's the
11:03 pm
lowest level in over half a century. but that doesn't help with what people are paying for gas on the highways tonight. which brings us on this thanksgiving eve to the holiday weekend that is before us, it is clear that it is still very much in the grip of this pandemic. we have now passed 40 million confirmed covid cases in our country. over 778,000 souls have been lost to the virus every day. we lose over 8000 more. the number of new cases continue to rise, the new york times puts it this way. new cases have increased by 25% nationally in the past two weeks. in 14 states cases have climbed by 40% or more. some of the biggest spikes have been in the midwest. this is the nation's first thanksgiving with vaccines in our midst. and tonight, doctor fauci, warned it's increasingly clear booster shots are critical for our protection. >> although the vaccine is highly affective that
11:04 pm
effectiveness rains over swab row munch which is the reason why we are strongly encouraging anyone 18 and over, who has been vaccinated with the original regiment that they get a booster shot, because the data that we are getting is extremely encouraging that the protection that you begin to lose as the months go by is dramatically enhanced by boosters. the definition of fully vaccinated is still two doses of the moderna, pfizer, or one dose of j&j. that is the requirement when people talk about what is required for this or for that. but that does not actually contradict the fact that we are seeing as vaccine efficacy wanes, you need to get that booster. >> by the, way the latest cdc numbers shows over 37 millions of us have received booster shots already. with, that let's bring in our starting line on this wednesday
11:05 pm
night thanksgiving eve ashley parker pulitzer prize winging white house bureau chief for the washington post. jonathan karl chief correspondent for abc news his most recent book, is out now. and it's making a lot of. news and neal katyal, department of justice veteran former acting solicitor general for our government during the obama administration who has argued dozens of cases before the u.s. supreme court. good evening and welcome to you all. and thank you for coming. on actually, i'd like to begin with you. along with the rest of, us the white house was clearly watching this trial. clearly on verdict watch. and the good many folks were holding their breath. what did you find notable about the statements from the president? and vice president? >> keep in mind that this was a killing that when president biden was with kennedy, he described a degree of injustice and as a lynching. he called it basically a modern
11:06 pm
day lynching. of course the white house had been more circumspect once he was president. not wanting to weigh in from the podium or any other way from an ongoing trial. but when i was struck by in both of those statement was the acknowledgment that in this instance the justice said that they were does they should. but, president biden said it shows just how far the nation has to go in terms of racial justice. and the vice president, does something very similar. and it is striking because this administration came in with four major crises they identify as coronavirus. the economy, climate change, and racial justice. and when you look at all for. rachel justice is that bucket where advocates in that space, democrats outside groups feel that the administration has not made much progress as they would like to see. and that is why i was struck by in the statement we saw tonight. >> so jonathan back to the
11:07 pm
business of this white house, and next week begins a marathon. the question to you is we, will they, and by they i mean white house congress, will they actually be able to achieve in the real world by the end of this calendar year? >> well first, if i could just pick up very briefly on what actually just said. i think that there's a fifth thing that biden really ran, on and that is the return to normal se, and respect for the rule of law. and when the rittenhouse of it came out, he said we stand with the jury. the jury system works. that would've been a nearly impossible for him to say if this verdict came back a different way. but here we saw a jury and nearly all white jury, in the deep south come forward. and they deliver justice in a highly charged case that shocked the nation last year. i think that the biggest emotion that i sense from the white house was a sigh of relief. in terms of going forward with
11:08 pm
the domestic agenda of brian, the headwinds are incredibly tough against biden right now. there are signs as you point, out that the economy is recovering. the job market is strong. but with inflation where it is, with gas prices going up this effort to tuck the petroleum reserve which may end up having little or no impact whatsoever on gas prices, and certainly not immediate. he goes into this pushing congress to pass another big piece of legislation. i don't know that he will get it through the senate, if it does get through the, senate it is clearly going to change a lot. and even if he pulls off another inside straight, here and he passes another landmark domestic piece of legislation the impact of that bill, much of it will not be felt until long after the mid term. but i think that there is a sense from biden, i sense it
11:09 pm
watching him, seeing him move on this. that this is the chance. this is the chance to do. it and all indication heading into the midterms are looking to be a very tough environment for democrats if he doesn't do it now, it may never happen. >> neal katyal, over to your belly work in your life's work at the top of the broadcast we laid out with the one six committee has committed thus far in its give or take four months of life. but it has told in effect, to go council. there's many indications that meadows is going to find at least a polite form of that. what do you think of their actions so far? what do you think of the teeth behind their actions? and neil, if you were general counsel of that committee, what would your advice to them be? >> so brian, for soft embarrassing for a moment. because the show is taking place an hour before thanksgiving. so it's the first time i've been on the show since your own personal news. and i just have to give thanks
11:10 pm
to you for teaching america, for teaching me about the roads and you are a true learner. you're always trying to figure something out like when you wanted to learn about supreme court, you can watch me argue and tried to figure it out and you've been a great mentor and friend, and i just can't thank you enough for the privilege of being able to work with you and i hope we get to more in the future. >> thank you counsel, that's all the time we have. >> so, look, i think that the january six committee is finally moved with some speed. but it has taken a long time. we are 11 months in, yes, there have been a bunch of interviews, and a bunch of subpoenas. but it's taking a long long time to get this. far this, week we saw a lot of action. we saw a lot of subpoenas to alex, jones and roger stone, and other trumpy stuff. and today, to right-wing organizations like the proud boys in the oath keepers, all of this is really good. but, you know, they are facing
11:11 pm
this deadline that the democrats might lose congress in november of next year, and this investigation is going to get shut down because it is an existentialist threat to what the republican party has become which is a party of trump, a party of vote suppression. and that is why the investigation is so important. so it's important both backwards looking to understand what happened on january six, get to the bottom of, it and who was involved and whether the white house or trump gave support material or otherwise to these essentially domestic terrorists. but it is also about the future. because if we understand what happened we can understand the playbook for 2024. so right now we are given these folks may be a plus. that's a georgetown's not as great for inflations. but that is where i think we are right now. the proof will be in the pudding. and we will see if they can move with more speed. but trump is going to do, what trump always does. and claim executive privilege.
11:12 pm
i love to see him try to claim executive privilege, over the proud boys, and the speakers. and who knows what he's going to do. but that is why the committee has got to move faster. neil, thank you for that answer, thank you for your kindness. any other personal comments we will start killing microphones around here. ashley parker, we moved to fly over to you. call it the economy dichotomy, or inflation disambiguation. but here it is, the white house does have a good story to tell about unemployment numbers, and about other economic indicators. that is no help to the people whose christmas presents are on container eyes shipping off the port of long beach, or to the people who have the misfortune of stopping at an ex down on the interstate tonight needing an atm to pay or fill their suvs with gas. what is a white house to do? >> well, that is exactly right. that is the central irony they are grappling with.
11:13 pm
if you look at a lot of these economic indicators, wage growth, those recent job numbers they are, quite good. in fact they are better than the administration expected when they took office, but they are dealing with the problems you just find out. the everyday voters, feel in their everyday life. i'm working on a story on this posted tomorrow morning, but i can tell you, as you said they do have a very -- to tell and the challenges they need to tell it. one thing we heard in our reporting is that for leading democratic pollsters in this month, the chief of staff -- it basically said to him we know that you are taking substantial steps on the economy, inflation, supply chain, but you need to highlight those steps. it is not enough to just try and solve the problem, you have to show americans that you are trying to solve the problem that you are fighting for them.
11:14 pm
that you empathize, and you feel their pain. that is what we have seen in recent weeks, but so far we are seeing a lack of that and the challenge is affecting the presidents -- polling right now which is not good. >> as we keep saying, fdr probably would have called the infrastructure bill, what it is, a jobs bill for all americans. hey john, back to the one six committee, perhaps relying on the -- former president's lawyers square off with committee lawyers at the federal court level next week. what do you reckon are in those one six white house records that donald trump clearly does not want to expose, either to sunlight or members of that committee, or both? >> well, at the very minimum what is in there are call oxen visitor logs. we will know exactly who it was that donald trump was talking to while the right was in suing
11:15 pm
oregon leads to more people in the committee to talk to more questions to ask, is what was happening while the right was going on why wasn't it that donald trump had spent so many of all those hours doing nothing. we know that some of his allies on capitol hill some of his senior advisers in the white house were practically begging him, pleading with him to get out there and to call his supporters off he did not do so until releasing the videotape very late when the riot was almost over, when he told them to go home, but he also said that he loved them, and that he seemed to defend what they were doing and explain why they were doing with it we're doing. so at the very minimum we learned that. but also the communications between his aides and also, they asked for photographic and videographer, videographer as
11:16 pm
well. that video as a report in betrayal, that he released that night, was the end of multiple tapes and the earlier tapes were rejected because he did not get around telling his supporters to stop writing. so what we are on those outtakes, those outtakes were taken by governments videographers. they belong to the united states government. they should have been turned over to the archives, we don't know if they were destroyed. but the committee, at least some people believe those videos still exist. that is something that will be very important for them to see. it is about getting to donald trump's state of mind while american democracy was under attack. >> neil, i guess there's no chance that there is anything and those records that will be exculpatory for donald trump and the people around him? >> i don't think there's anything exculpatory in any documents anywhere for donald trump. but look, if they were, he wouldn't let them out. he has been going around
11:17 pm
telling her one that has executive privilege, which is a real concept. it is something that goes back to the founding, there needs to be a certain amount of secrecy around treaties and the like. the problem for donald trump is that it is never been used, never even been contemplated to be used for planning an insurrection, or even reacting to an insurrection in the way that happened on january 6th. it is a ludicrous claim, particularly when the incumbent president says no executive privilege in the supreme court said, it is up to the incumbent president not the past person to really invoke it. this is a delay tactic, that's all it is, it's a typical abuse of the law by donald trump and done for one reason, which is he is afraid to have this documents come out, he's afraid have his advisors going testify and tell the truth. >> neil, ashley, jonathan, our

11:23 pm
technical question for you though. i looked it up tonight. this murder took place about 420 miles from the stunning and extraordinary, memorial and museum dedicated to the victims of this lynching and was an extrajudicial by civilians was it not. it certainly was,. and the brian stevenson that you are affirming to which acknowledges that lynchings are things that take place with the basis of racial -- based and intended to intimidate others that come on. that is a certain subjects, it is not an often pretext of the arbery killing, that the mcmichaels committed which we have been calling a lynching since it happened in 18 months ago. unfortunately that is not new normal glacier but i applaud you for having the courage to call it when it is. susan, let's go ahead and say
11:24 pm
something else that is obvious to some of us but perhaps not all. with there been a case at all without video? would we be repeating the name that we all know now and we will know forever ahmaud arbery? >> i do not think we would bryan. i also, there's one other thing that really made this case come together, and that is aubry's parents. they were the ones that insisted and kept pushing the police and if it wasn't for them this story would not have even got in the local paper. and it was that leaked videotape. we should highlight. it was leaked. this was not something that was put out evident or for the lawyers to discuss, this was leaked and the main result of it led to the conviction of
11:25 pm
these events, but i do fear that if not for that this lynching would've gone unnoticed. >> don we've seen a lot of perverse performance art around this case. the defense lawyer who we will have to take to her grave the racist probe she used in that courtroom. and then in the other party, we have some performance art by republicans in another case entirely throwing their arms figuratively around. and in some cases literally around kyle rittenhouse. who got himself a visit, mar-a-lago a week in a quote from donald trump was that he is a good young man. your reaction to this on the other side in the background? >> the great james baldwin is almost universally instructive on one hand, he asked whether he acknowledges that black people in this country every day are asked to step out on faith and act in faith and in
11:26 pm
service of a country that is good faith, we do not see returned, in return. and the other, had it instructs us to be optimistic. and that's what we saw today in brunswick, georgia. that is laid out with facts of a perfect storm matter in which you have very clear video, and you have a viral history of white supremacists in this mcmichael family, then maybe, on occasion, we can occasionally reach the right outcome. just long enough to keep people believing in this criminal justice system one more time. i always find baldwin to be pretty much and destructive here. but the idea of kyle rittenhouse's face, even if he didn't break any, laws we need to reform laws. but the idea of his fate as a 17-year-old, went juxtaposed with the 17 year old yvonne martin, who ended up in the exact same situation as ahmaud aubry, in a difficult situation that he did not create, and that being dead. the difference in these two dramatic fates is so clear. and for one side of our political party, while 50% of
11:27 pm
the people who we have to work, with no, and being community with every, day to support the political party who is embracing these overt maniacal killers is just -- it makes one have great frustration for the long term viability of this country. as a two party system, it just doesn't make sense. and then even for our president to say that the justice system worked in both cases, well that's clearly not the case in wisconsin. it did not, work regardless of whether or not, and i use that term speeches, sly were found guilty. there was clearly a justice system that was broken. i know it's entirely -- i don't taking my time here, but we need to see that it's a state sanction killing. a prosecutor elected by her, pear saw this video, and decided to not charge these people. never forget, and never dismiss the spirit and the city of activism. which along with ahmaud aubry's parents brought attention to this matter. and ultimately got the matter prosecuted. without that these boys would be doing whatever they do every day down in brunswick georgia.

on reducing concerns over high prices, this reminder from our friends at punchbowl news they cover the hill, quote, there are just nine days until federal agencies run out of money. there has been no real progress on a stopgap measure to prevent a government shutdown. a friendly reminder, still with us don calloway, susan del percio. susan, that is just one issue out there in the road. you reminded us of another on twitter today, as families gathered for thanksgiving, it will not be talking about new roads and bridges, they will be talking about high gas prices and the cost of thanksgiving dinner. this will only keep president biden's approval ratings in the low 40s. susan, i would add to that, only the point i made to, ashley, the guessing game as to which christmas gifts will be and contain arise chipping off
11:33 pm
the coast of long beach california. leicester things have killed presidencies then things like inflation. >> that is true. when you start looking at biden's numbers, not just his low approval numbers, but the numbers when you start looking at right direction wrong direction, those wrong direction numbers are in the 60s, and one poll even had hitting 70% wrong direction. right now, and our political system, when those numbers start settling in, it is hard to come out of it. i know a lot of democrats, and a lot of republicans are at home in the congressional districts, and they are pulling, and they are trying to find out where their constituents are because it is very hard to stay strong on biden's numbers are so low. i do not think the build back better plan has a very good odd a fighting chance right now. the longer it goes on the more
11:34 pm
problematic it will be the more we have to worry about funding the government and that feelings, the pesky little things you have to worry about operating. this is going to leave democrats who still won't have a long career in a whole bunch of trouble. i don't see them doing. and susan, as you know, as no one needs to remind you, the label out of touch. if biden is not seeing as zooming into these issues like a laser beam, the last president who had the was the president to be. >> yeah, i mean the worst part of its, not just out of touch is that he's always coming in late after the issue has exploded with the refugees that were going across or hanging out under the bridge. they had built intensity under bridge. or whether or be inflation all of a sudden he recognized, oh i
11:35 pm
better show i'm strong on inflation. or getting our supply chain in order. he is always talking about it about two weeks after everybody else's. so it's not just being out of touch, it's being disconnected from the public and joining them too late. >> now i get to deal with, don, don, i just texted my body from high school to make sure he was watching because this is the first time i have seen my high school, and our team name, the last football team that would have me playing on the roster, the proud modern-day high school about how new jersey, we played under the names tariffs. it was a real caroline sure cheerleaders to pronounce and stuff to rhyme with it. the names of the gray hbcus in this country, don, what have you gone and done, and why?

11:41 pm
his new book, everything we thought we knew about george turns out to be pretty much exactly wrong. in fact, he writes the irony is. this had king george the third been the ruthless thus but he was made up to be by thomas jefferson in the declaration of independence, britain would've had a much better chance of winning the war. thankfully, with us for more is our friend the author and historian andrew roberts. his new book is the last king of america. the misunderstood reign of george the third. his previous book was his massive and well received, autobiography, by sir winston churchill. i brought visual aid. churchill book. what last king of america. that is about six and a half inches of journalism right there. these are not for the faint of heart. but they are for people who love history and beautiful writing. let me ask you, how did he come to be so misunderstood that we
11:42 pm
thankfully have the record corrected by dent of the trove of documents you had access to? >> that's right brian. thank you very much. he was misunderstood partly before. i love that as much as everybody, else but which is entirely historically incorrect. and of, course the declaration of independence -- which was a wartime -- it's the most beautiful language, but two thirds of it the latitude of the two thirds of it for prices of 20 charges. only two of which he was guilty. up he mentioned this new archive, the majesty the queen has since since 2015, but 100,000 pages of the georgia's third archive in letters, pages, correspondents, and so on, online. and it shows a completely different person from the one that was made out. someone who is charming, intelligent, good-natured and
11:43 pm
limited government monarch. >> more than that, i am looking at page three 99. which for this book is still part of the introduction. forgive me. he uses the phrase honorable termination. talking about the conflict with the new settlers across the atlantic. and it sounds like, nixon passing off are lost in vietnam in our withdrawal as peace with honor. are you telling me that he was a closet pragmatist? >> yes, very much he was. he would've loved to have started the war, much earlier than that in 1779. of course they set out the horrible commission in which no taxation without representation was the central theme of the peace negotiation that he hoped to have happened. by that stage of course it was far too late. the fighting would've been going on for four years. but nonetheless, the idea of
11:44 pm
him being a tyrant in the 18th century since of the, word was completely wrong. >> through your, text you deal with the two primary nicknames he had during his reign. in england, they called him farmer george, i think it was meant to be used with derision. it actually helped him in the early election returns in the hinterland's and country sides. here, they just called him the mad king. and both nicknames kind of fall short of their mark in light of this new piece of scholarship. >> thank you, i think that's right. former george of course was used by intellectuals as way of trying to embarrass and humiliate, him but in a country with 18 sums of people took their livelihood from algal crotch, or it actually made him
11:45 pm
more popular. imagine king george is a phrase that i don't think we should use any longer. because we just symbolize mental illness. we cannot blame the king any longer for this terrible collapse of his mental capacity. which did not happen, by the way, as it's made up by hamilton musical. during the period of the american revolution, during the period of his major breakdown, it doesn't take place until 1780, eight to 1789. five years after america has become independent. >> to our viewers, and i have it on good authority we have a good number of history buff in the audience, you are going to find out along the way just as much about earlier american history as you are about king george the third. including things about thomas payne that completely rewrote what we, the american school children, would line.
