11:04 am
biden saying throughout his polling data right in front of 40-year career he's cooperated with legitimate congressional me. if memory serves properly, oversight. same time, the question, if americans thought that consistently for many years if subpoenaed in an impeachment not decades, no matter who's trial, does that qualify as president. legitimate congressional the specific numbers of how many oversight or something think the united states is on different? the wrong track versus the right that seems to be the distinction track vary, of course, but for a that they're drawing, and that long time whether it's obama, at least that may be at play here, but i think we need to bush or trump as president of the united states, they don't wait for this clarification yet feel that the united states is again from the biden campaign to doing all that well. see whether or not he would generally speaking. majority i mean. appear before a senate trial and >> all right. from the "daily beast" thank you. russia making a big in donald trump's impeachment if announcement that some experts given a subpoena. a lot of hypotheticals. worry would, and could, re-ignite and the arms race with in general politicians don't the united states. answering hypotheticals anymore russian military officials say they have successfully deployed than i do like answering jon a supersonic weapon that they voight questions. say will render u.s. missile >> does this give the president defense systems useless. and his team ammo? those comments there by the this news comes as russia former vice president? continues to conduct joint >> reporter: potentially. military drills with iran and right? i mean, donald trump seizes on china, in the middle east. opportunities when he sees that tensions in the region, crucial they might present themselves. to the we know he has been hammering on biden every chance he gets. they remain high after the trump

11:40 am

is bone and muscle ache. ask your doctor... had to do something. ...about neulasta onpro. again, i would have liked to see pay no more than $5 per dose with copay card. much more coordination between the state department and the ambassador. i mean, generally speaking, an ambassador is there to keep the door open so that the ambassador can go in, tell the host government, look, i told you that decision you took last week was going to cause a problem in washington, and it has, and, today's senior living communities have never been better, again, i'm going to suggest to you how you can get, move with amazing amenities like movie theaters, exercise rooms forward on this. so clearly, that kind of role and swimming pools, public cafes, bars and bistros wasn't being played, and he was not happy at all. even pet care services. >> a lot of people saying now and there's never been an easier way to get great advice. the united states doesn't have leverage in saying anything a place for mom is a free service against the government of that pairs you with a local advisor zambia, or any other country we to help you sort through your options might disagree with. all right. and find a perfect place. ambassador christopher hill, a place for mom. appreciate your time especially with the breaking news we had you know your family we know senior living. top of this block. together we'll make the right choice. thank you. spotify is now taking a stand when it comes to political ads. the ongoing conversation about politics and online platforms, next. who doesn't love a deal?

>> reporter: the scene was neither pivotal nor political. >> down the hall and to the left. >> thanks. >> reporter: but after learning the cbc, canada's public broadcaster cut president trump's cameo in "home alone 2: lost in new york" some saw it as a left stunt. removinged scene in 2014, they say, years before president trump declared his presidency. the scene past of a time cut to show the film on tv. a common practice. hosts on morning show "fox & friends" had their own theories. >> terrified remind people how deranged his opponents are. >> and it's censorship. >> reporter: just boasting about the cameo in a videoconference call to troops abroad. >> the wig christmas hit. one of the biggest. an honor to be involved. >> reporter: the president

not my thing. hi, everyone. happy saturday. i'm kendis gibson live at msnbc world headquarters in new york. joe biden doing backtracking after make new comments whether he would cooperate with a subpoena from the senate in an impeachment trial. >> do you stand by your earlier statements that you wouldn't comply if you were subpoenaed to testify in an impeachment trial
12:01 pm
before the senate? >> correct. and the reason i wouldn't, is because it's all designed to deal with trump doing what he's done his whole life. trying to take the focus off him. >> biden there meeting with the all-important editorial board for the des moines register newspaper and hit with harsh criticism saying he wouldn't comply with a subpoena as democrats decry the decision by trump administration officials to do exactly the same thing during the house impeachment inquiry. moments ago in eastern iowa, tipton, iowa, biden appeared to change his stance. >> the whole point of this is, anyone subpoenaed related to this investigation with the president has be able to have some knowledge to shed on whether or not he committed the offenses he is accused of committing. i have no firsthand knowledge. there's no basis of it.
12:02 pm
i would honor whatever the congress, in fact, legitimately asked me to do. >> busy day this holiday weekend for many of the candidates. all this from biden comes at the tame time he and other democrats continue to squabbleal over high-donor dollars. right now biden is leading in the national polls, but mayor pete buttigieg has pulled well ahead in the latest polls in the hawkeye state of iowa. nbc news road war your joining me now from marshalltown, iowa north of des moines just at a mayor pete event and clearly get in and out quickly. already wrapping up. first, talk about biden, shaq. appears he's backtracking a little on his comments he made about dieifying that subpoena. why? >> reporter: you nobody, it's not clear exactly why, or there was criticism for it, but how this whole situation started is just not clear why he got into
12:03 pm
it in this type of way. let's start out with the fact this is a hypothetical situation that we're talking about. vice president biden has not been issued a subpoena in the impeachment process against president trump. we still don't know how that trial will happen in the senate and what that process will be, so when asked about whether or not he would comply with the subpoena which is a comment he addressed a little earlier in the month, he then went off with that comment and then had to backtrack. he tweeted about it this morning talking about the fact he doesn't believe there's a legal basis for that subpoena, but says he has complied with subpoenas throughout his whole entire career. this is not what the campaign would want to be talking about right now. they do want to talk about the voters just coming off the christmas break and into that crucial time. just about a month away from the iowa caucus. they want to be talking about the issues, not necessarily about president trump's impeachment. it goes to the point vice president biden was trying to make where he says that the, both the goal of the president is to shift the attention away
12:04 pm
from him on to the candidates and i think that's what he's getting stuck in right now. >> yeah, but you're at that pete buttigieg event, which just wrapped up within the last couple of minutes. i mentioned he is front-runner according to latest polls in iowa. you get a sense he's trying to capitalize on it, run out the clock or introducing had you ideas at these stunt speeches? >> reporter: hard to run out the clock this early. especially true when you talk to iowa voter who say, yeah, they may have a decision that they made right now, they have a preference for a candidate but are still open to other candidates. still coming to other candidates events to hear their pitches to voters. mayor pete, he just wrapped up campaigning up until about new year's eve, but one thing that tng we contis
