struggles online with getting of his new memoir "permanent any positive attention a lot of the activists tend to record" without prior live on social media, and the authorization from the cia and reason that the social media nsa. gauge matters is that's where a the doj said in a lawsuit lot of people, most people are yesterday that snowden getting their news acknowledged that they published and we tend to look at the -- his book without submitting to what's happening on tv where the agencies for prepublic this stuff at the ground floor eventually trickles its way up. review and express violation of the agreements he signed >> talk to us about the house the suit does not seek to stop judiciary hearing yesterday with the publication or distribution of snowden's book, but instead, former trump campaign manager looks to recover any proceeds corey lewandowski. >> it's hard to see that it helped the case overwhelmingly for democrats who really, really earned snowden has lived in russia for want to build public support, the last six years build democratic support inside joining me here on the set is the caucus for impeachment there's probably 170, 175 house msnbc legal analyst, danny democrats right now who would cevallos danny, good to have you. vote for impeachment obviously we need 218 to make it what do you make of this recent a reality if it came up for a legal proceeding, if you will, against edward snowden floor vote each one of these hearings they've been unsuccessful in bringing him back to the united matters in that context. you have nancy pelosi, several states through legal means other members who are saying but what's the significance of we've got to move on we don't want to do impeachment. this one other legal proceeding we don't want to be the party of given the fact that he's facing impeachment. when you have a lot of much more serious consequences for the violation?
>> members of the community and other agencies almost uniformly members pushing so hard for it they need something else signed an agreement to not only they had the mueller report. they need some of these disclose information but to testimonies to really sort of submit any book that they might the grab the public by the write or any kind of speaking collar and say look this guy has engagement to the agency for to be impeached. i don't know if they got that what's called prepublication review and the supreme court has said yesterday. there was a lot of stonewalling, a little bit of theatrics. that despite the first amendment these hearings now you either and the strong presumption have people who get up there and against the government's prior really don't say anything that restraint of speech, this kind revelatory or new or you have of prepublication review is the white house trying to block constitutional so, they're alleging that people from testifying like they with did with rob porter and a snowden breached this obligation he had signed written few others. >> do you think jim that nondisclosure agreements nadler's push for these and they're not seeking to stop impeachment hearings, do you the speech, stop the think this is more about gaining publications of the book they just want the proceeds. more public sport, or do you think this is about gaining and i suspect the reason they're support within the democratic not actually trying to stop party? >> they're so intertwined. publication of the book is then they need pressure, if you think about the raw numbers, if you you'd run smack into some real have 175 house democrats who first amendment concerns would probably vote for and they may be stuck litigating impeachment, there needs to be whether or not the stuff that pressure on that additional 30, snowden wants to talk about, he 40 members you need to be able has a constitutional right to to get enough to actually pull speak about it off impeachment, and so unless >> so, let's extend on one of

against iran after the attack. >> however, sources welling nbc news that president trump is seeking a narrowly focused response that would not draw the u.s. into a broader military conflict with iran which could entail the u.s. to a saudi led strike yemen-based houthi rebels claimed responsibility say it's related to the saudi war in yemen. and now president rouhani said that riyadh should see the attacks as an end to the war the white house has made u.s. intel on the attack which points to iran being the high man available to all u.s. senators and the chairman of the homeland security committee ron johnson has said that the brief is only three pages and cut and dried. adding he's 100% convinced iran is the culprit
an intel committee was briefed last night and speaker. pelosi has requested one for the entire chamber the taliban targeted an election rally in kabul and the president was reportedly at least half a mile away from the time and was not hurt. just over an hour later, another suicide bombing in kabul killed at least 22 and injured 38 others the statement from the white house press office said the administration, quote, strongly condemns the taliban's cowardly attacks against the afghan people adding the president has made clear he will not negotiate a peace agreement while the taliban completes such attacks the house intel committee has approved the release of transcripts from the 2016 election interference. a committee source telling nbc news that lawmakers on that panel voted unanimously last night to release the documents from its investigation which could happen in just the next couple of days the committee interviewed
numerous trump associates and campaign advisers as part of this probe which also focused on the fbi's handling of the steele dossier. and whether obama officials improperly leaked information about the campaign in the final report the then republican panel said it found no evidence of collusion between the trump campaign and russia. and president trump has upped his search for his national security adviser following the ouster of john bolton speaking aboard air force one yesterday, the president revealed the top five candidates he's considering trump said the list including robert o'brien, major general ricky waddell, energy department undersecretary for nuclear security lisa gordon-haggertgy fred fleitz and retired lieutenant gentle keith kellogg.
after the president spoke, press secretary stephanie grisham shared a report as trump had noted the names mentioned were not the full list of candidates and that other names were being considered joining from us washington, d.c., senior political correspondent for the examiner david drucker. great to have you back with us let's talk about this list in regards to trump's search for the next national security adviser. what are some of the contenders' views on protecting americans and working on foreign nations when it comes to some of the big foreign policy security issues where do they differentiate themselves >> well, i think president trump's challenge is to find something that can reflect the world view which over the last 30 years, this is where the president has run into trouble with his previous national security advisers. but anyway larger sense the president could use somebody who could bring order and
establishment and good management to the national security process inside the white house from a policy perspective. he needs somebody who can sort of handle the bureaucracy on this and try to turn his policy, as much as it sort of bobs and weaves and is never that consistent into something that is consistent. but the president is tired of a lot of these national security advisers because they chafe at a lot of his directives. and i think that the challenge for the president is to try and find somebody who can better reflect him on this issue. in a sense, the way he's been able to surround himself with economic and trade advisers that do a very good job at least of reflecting where the president is on those issues >> let's talk about some of those options that we were just laying out with regards to the u.s. taking against iran because of the saudi strike. we're talking a possible cyber attack a possible physical military strike or supporting a saudi-led strike, which some officials are
saying the president is leaning more towards as they await more information from the saudi government, it seems, much of which they're relying on what do you make of them these options, and the possible impact it could have >> all right so the president is caught somewhere between trying to act tough and talk tough, to have an impact oniran and other player in the middle east and not being very comfortable projecting american power. the president is supportive of building up american military power. and he is supportive, naturally, of defending the united states against attacks. but when it comes to projecting american power around the world, sometimes, proactively, that even in defense of our allies, he gets very uncomfortable because he believes that it's a waste of resources and, you know, he uses the term "endless wars" where he doesn't want the
u.s. to continue to be as immeshed in the middle east as in asia in the past. the problem that he's running into as the president is finding out a lot of american adversaries are finding they can act and do what they want. the public to act against iran and has pushed them even further. so i think the president has to decide whether he believes he should project american power which could help dampen some of these irritants or whether these going to let this stuff happen >> i think it's safe to say that any kind of escalation or conflict between saudi arabia would be disastrous for the region even if the u.s. was not in any military strike. >> disastrous. and i just want to note, we have heard from the president in the past that the red line would be civilian casualties which we are not seen in any strikes. >> david drucker, thank you. we'll see you again on "morning
