tv   The 11th Hour With Brian Williams  MSNBC  April 25, 2018 11:00pm-12:00am PDT

11:00 pm
there are moving pieces to report to you at this hour in the overarching russia investigation. "the washington post" is reporting tonight that rudolph personally sat down and met with special council robert mueller on tuesday to reopen ne negotiation y negotiations for an interview. convey the on going resistance of trump and his advisers for an interspru did not rule out the possibility the people said adding that he pressed him about when it is expected to end. he would like a chance to ask trump about key steps during his administration and early months. emphasized as he did in conversations with trump's team.
11:01 pm
essential for trump to understand trump's intent as they wrap up the portion of the probe focused on potential obstruction of justice and "the post" points out that he knew him for decades. and described the session as relaxed and an opportunity for both sides to feel each other out. last thursday after hired by president trump, giuliani said he hopes to join the russia investigation in a week or two. we are also following developments tonight in the on going legal drama relating to the president's long time attorney michael cohen. saying he will assert his fifth
11:02 pm
amendment rights. he site, the on going criminal investigation allegation in the southern district of new york is the reason for taking the fifth, daniels suing president trump arguing a nondisclosure agreement she signed is invalid because the president never sign it had. we should note that the white house denied trump had an affair with stormy daniels so a lot to talk about. let's bring in the panel for wednesday evening, julia and justice reporter, former u.s. attorney joyce vance spent 25 years as a -- and welcome to you all. philip let's start with a story that we are watching minute by minute it is 11:03 and change here on the east coast. where does the president's
11:03 pm
nomination for v.a. stand right now? >> the nomination is in extreme pearl. jackson indicating to white house officials considering withdrawing. he wants to keep fighting and a chance to clear his name and a chance to defend himself in a confirmation hearing and some that he denied to the media. he realizes how ugly it will be and unlikely that he will be confirmed by the senate. there's a number of lawmakers speaking against him. so the white house is in limbo at the moment. i would not be surprised to see an announcement that he is out or maybe he will make it to the morning, i think his days are numbered. >> i want to ask you fiphil abo
11:04 pm
the jewel lan any effect. where the talks stand with mueller? >> remember he came on board as the president's head attorney replacing john dowd. there was a meeting between mueller and giulani and seemed to indicate to mueller that the president was willing to consider that interview although we know from reporting over the last few weeks serve since the raids against michael cohen, trump has been hostile of the idea of doing the interview with mueller. let's see if he does it. it may be a game that giuliani is playing and then provide trump an explanation and excuse
11:05 pm
if it were to decide ultimately not to do it. >> joyce, as the former fed on this panel, it is clear that he has been anxious to get his side of the story out and talk about his exploits and talks on behalf of his client. if you are mueller or the mueller team, how do you react to seeing a once private meeting on a tuesday afternoon come out in the press closer to wednesday? >> you expect that it's going to happen. that's been the trajectory of this entire investigation. i think mueller like most prosecutors is happy to try his cases in the courtroom and leave it to others to try their cases in the press. >> julia, there's reason to believe that people have spoken publicly about investigations wrapping up real soon by thanksgiving, christmas, by
11:06 pm
tonight. for an audience of one. have you and all of your reporting given indications this thing is going to wrap up anywhere close to soon? >> i think what we have learned as the investigation continues is that it is possible that mueller will be able to lob off part. the obstruction probe. spf may be able to wrap some point this summer. as "the washington post" points out, mueller wants to see trump interviewed. he wants to get to the key question that underlies obstruction. and that is intent. what was his intent about air force one and the trump tower meeting. and decided to fire gjim comey and if he was intending to talk to flynn to lie about russia. so for mueller to be able to
11:07 pm
wrap up this one piece of the investigation, he wants to talk to the president. this could be a game as philip pointed out. gui liani wants to open the window and if he talks mueller may be able to wrap it up without the interview. >> there's no surprises. he can say i want to talk to your client about the heart of the case. >> i'm not sure that i agree that mueller is all that interested in interviewing the president. we have speculated about that, but when you have an obstruction case, you don't get to interview the target and you build as a prosecutor that case based on what took place and what resulted from what took place. here, mueller got all of the facts out and got the president writing this letter trying to
11:08 pm
explain away the june meeting in trump tower and using facts that were untrue. he has the comey firing. i'm not sure that interviewing the president adds that much and we are assuming here that the president is the target of an investigation. that may not be true. mueller has already told we have learned the president is a subject not a target. the president may never be a target. mueller may have decided that he can't be indicted and in that case interviewed like any other witness with a grand jury subpoena and if he's a target, subpoena is frowned upon on the policy. >> that meant it was only tuesday for us, but the piece you did about the president's utterances and calling it a witch hunt and the tone and content of what he's saying on
11:09 pm
twitter doesn't sound like he is trying to proclaim michael cohen's innocent. >> talking about the russia probe and the legal challenges such as the cohen situation in new york. from a perspective of guilt almost and it may be unconscious on the part of the president. but the way he speaks about it gives the impression that he has something to hide and he may be guilty. we saw that on twitter, he was talking whether michael cohen can flip and arguing that he doesn't think he will flip. if he doesn't have incriminating evidence on the president, what is there to flip about? he casts himself in a with a i that is unusual but as joyce on the panel i interviewed her for this story and pointed out this
11:10 pm
is behavior that is reminiscent in criminal behavior. >> it was fantastic. julia, i have a dramatic for you. this is "the washington post" reporting, let's call this segment -- trump hired the raskins after meeting them for the first time. decision over shadowed that former new york city mayor would join the team and take the lead in negotiating with mueller. they have tried and defended clients in criminal cases and hardball negotiation with prosecutors, skills trump would need. and trying to use attorney/client protections if keeping investigators skou we
11:11 pm
aring -- who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss confidential discussions. i love modern day disclaimers in 2018. julia, what do you make of that? these will two attorneys, husband and wife. met them at march ra maro lago t matured. >> they haven't got enough attention and dark horse liars indicative of the president's broader legal strategy. he brought on giulani someone who understands and what co men may be able to say about hissen client, the president. and bringing on the husband and wife team that are notorious able to get people off. it seems like all of the
11:12 pm
evidence is stack against them and the clients walk away scot-free. it is to someone like andrew wisemen. they are trying to build up a team around a defense based on what is going on in new york. for people who i have spoken to, it sounds like the president is worried about what it coming out of the southern district. what information they might get from michael cohen and building his legal team around that. hearing less about rod ros rosenstein. and now focused on the husband and wife team in florida. the hiring of people who are loyal to him and can fight back against someone like andrew who is good at being able to flip witnesses. this is indicative of not only the anxiety that the president is under and where the anxious
11:13 pm
is being focused. >> i had to read twees that the president is making himself available to go over everything seized from his lawyer's office. and go through what they have and talk about the precedent for this and how it lives in reality. >> well, the president of course, has objected to the use of the government's tainting procedure. this is how government attorneys typically operate to ensure that a prosecution team doesn't see material covered by the attorney/client privilege when they search a client or attorney's office. it is a standard procedure. the president objects to it here and he has a dilemma created for him. michael cohen asserted the fifth amendment privilege in the
11:14 pm
stormy daniels case, he can't testify and the payment of $130,000 without subjecting himself to criminal liability. and that would seem to me that any files in his office aren't attorney/client privilege files. if there's criminal conduct between a attorney and client they are not protected. so we have trump coming in offering to review then files. his lawyer told us that it would not be attorney/client and saying i will personally be available to look them over and wants to get a first cut at the evidence. >> makes easy for we civilians to understand this. we are covering every denied. to julia, and joyce and philip thank you.
11:15 pm
coming up for us, michael cohen announc announces he will take the fifth in the daniel's case. and stormily daniel's lawyer has something to say about that. the president's navy doctor nominated to run the v.a. faces newal gags of prescribing himself meds and drive ago vehicle and more on "the 11th hour.

united states for at least the last ten to 12 years. that same individual that the president appointed you, other members of the media and the american people for answers is refusing to provide the answers and claiming he can't answer the questions because the answers will inkrim that hicriminate hi. this is staggering development, it cannot be over exaggerated or overstated, this is a big deal. stormy daniel's attorney speaki speaking to our colleague moments ago. michael cohen taking the fifth and stormy daniels filed against him. the on going criminal investigation in the southern district of new york the reason to assert his fifth amendment privilege. earlier this month raided the offices and residences of cohen
11:20 pm
relating to the $130,000 pay out he made days before the election to stay silent about the affair with trump. it came from his own personal funds. and now president trump said on air force one, he didn't know about the payment and the white house said that president trump never had an affair with daniels. today's news comes when his lawyer said he will make himself available. nbc nie nbc news says that the president will aid in a potential review of the materials taken by the fbi to determine which items are subject to state's attorney/client privilege. over seeing the filtering of the materials. trump's involvement would need to be authorized by the judge.
11:21 pm
to repeat in plain english, the president of the united states saying i would love a crack to see what you gathered up at my lawyer's office as you open it and go through it. senior correspondent and former assistant attorney for the aforementioned southern district of new york. daniel, let's start with taking the fit before fth before we ge image of the president going through box that say evidence. we no it doesn't imply guilt, what does it mean? >> the bare case that it doesn't mean that much is that following the searches and the reflation and that there's an intensive investigation, any defense lawyer would say i'm not going
11:22 pm
to have him under oath even if he is innocent because somebody else thinks he is committing crimes. it is not as michael said, necessarily, an admission that if i speak under oath i will be incriminating myself. that is not what the fifth amendment is and that is in the what he is doing. >> are you telling me that stormy daniel's lawyer is protecting he is client and may have over stepped the bounds? >> he said it cannot be exaggerated or overstated t. is an event that he is sitting here and taking the fifth in a lawsuit by trying to force the nd skparks i think now he wishes he took the settlement that
11:23 pm
stormy daniel offered. it can't go away because michael and stormy daniels add add claim of defamation against cohen or else he would get rid of this as fast as he could. >> i have a question for you, can the president remain silent on these doings were talking here? >> remain silent? could he take the fifth? >> is he going to remain silent from commenting on michael cohen, for example. >> i'm glad you asked, i saw this evening and the president tweeted that he will be appearing tomorrow morning on 8:00 a.m. on fox and friends but the president watches quite faithfully and gets excited about and the fact that he is appearing on fox and friends
11:24 pm
which will be stoking his pressure points and his resentments, i can't imagine -- we are used to waking up and the president tweeted three or four times and in the newsroom we are scrambling to respond. it is going to be a banana za. he may be weighing in. he can't remain silent when you have -- he knows how to enflame the situation. i expect we will be hearing a lot from mr. trump. >> daniel, when the president says he will make himself available to go through evidence, isn't he and i don't say this argumentively, the last person who should be decided on
11:25 pm
attorney/client privilege? >> i agree with you on the last point. that ship has sailed because the judge ordered last week for the government to turn over the materials that were seized to michael cohen. once she did that, the cat is out of the bag. whether it is the judge who is going to make the decision or a special master or a magistrate judge, someone is going to have to make the decisions and once trump and cohen have the information, it is trump's privilege to assert. so i don't expect as you mentioned him to be on the dprou ground weaving through boxes. the hot docs that the lawyers find may be relayed to him. the sub text is that the judge issued a surprising order to hold a conference to ascertain
11:26 pm
what is going on. in reading the documents, the sub text is is this special master that the defense asked for going to delay things exponentially and so i think trump and his team were paint in a box where he had to say he was available or otherwise, they were not going to get the relief they wanted. >> and everybody worried about undue delay. the president snapped at someone and called the potential pardon of cohen, stupid. >> i think it is a valid question. pardon, scooter libby who was not a front burner topic of conversation and came -- an act to come a the a moment like this and reintroduce in everyone's mind whether a pardon could be part of a legal political strt
11:27 pm
and we know from good reporting from newspapers that the president has at least, the president's lawyers have raised the ideas of potential pardons in conversation. it is not something that reporters are conjuring out of thin air. it's been a conversation within the president's legal team. it would be encredibly dramatic act but the president has unlimited power to pardon. not much people can do about it. so it is kind of his nuclear bomb at this point and we don't nowhere he is willing to use it. it is a president not interested in historical norms or tasted of people commenting about his behavior on television. you can't rule it out. >> just when i thought we were not in the nuclear bomb business, apparently we are. thank you for tonight. coming up, the veterans the most important thing about the

announce the withdraw for nomination yesterday. after what the president said at the press conference at the white house with french president macron. where he said he stood by him and then he said i don't know why he wants the job and why he wants to go through process. it seems like an invitation to withdraw and it is astounding. >> phil, i know this came up in the briefing today and as i'm watching i hope no one is confusing a promotion procedure with a vet. vetting is a term of art in washington and it means an fbi full field investigation and they take a hard look at your life. working in proximity of the president we since known about all kinds of bad characters who worked around this president and others. does this point out a vet problem and a procedural problem
11:35 pm
that was allowed to hang out for enough days to attract more allegations as it did tonight? >> clearly, brian, there's a vetting problem in the white house if the allegations are coming to late and were not known to the white house before president trump tweeted that he would be the nominee to head the department of affairs. sarah sanders said there were four separate background checks. and at one point used the phrase vetting. did not detail what it was entailed. one conducted by the fbi, unclear if most or all of them took place before jackson was nominated for the v. a. it is likely he would have these sorts of procedures going on because of his proximity to the president. he was the personal physician so there's an interest on the part of the fbi and white house and
11:36 pm
the executive branch as a whole to make sure he was up to snuff to do that. talking to white house officials, they are confused about the allegations about jackson. they travel with him and know him. he is close to them personally and this is not the behavior they have seen and they are startled by it and caught off guard. >> i don't blame them. this is explosive stuff. jackie, as far as your reporting and understanding of this. whose decision will this be? >> the president said yesterday at his press conference he was leaving it up to ronny jackson. there is not anybody who think that is true. it is i can loo the -- like the chicken and egg situation. it is clear -- it is an
11:37 pm
astounding situation. the president talks about extreme vetting for immigrants but should apply that to his appointees. in this case i don't think there's indication of vetting much at all. he announced the firing of the pr predecessor by a tweet and naming dr. jackson. i think he knew him on a personal level. 15 months into the presidency at a time when most administrations would institutionalize and gotten better at it and the president became unilateral actor and acted on whim. the represents are not defending dr. jackson and losing support. the v.a. is one of the top agencies that members as much as they defer to a president to pick his own officials.
