of the texas state capitol in austin, trying to rally in solidarity around the jewish community that has been a party to these ugly disturbing anti-semitic attacks. watch this space. that is going do it for us tonight. we'll see you again tomorrow. "way too early" is up next. ♪♪ a legal win for former president trump at least for now. an appeals court has temporarily blocked the january 6th select committee from obtaining his white house records, but the panel is still moving ahead with their investigation, giving former chief of staff mark meadows an ultimatum, show up and testify or face contempt. will he show up today? kyle rittenhouse's team has rested their case. the question is this, could we see the jury consider lesser charges in addition to the more serious counts. and the faa is cracking down
on unruly airline passengers. federal authorities have slapped ten people with fines for shoving and throwing punches on commercial flights. the question is whatever happened to friendly skies? it's "way too early" for this. ♪♪ good morning and welcome to "way too early," the show that honestly prefers amtrak. i'm jonathan lemire on this friday, november 12th. this after a lower court rejected an argument to withhold them from the select committee, investigating the attack, denying the claim of executive privilege. the appellate court fast-tracked the hearing while it considers trump's request to delay the committee throughout the appeals process. in a 15-page emergency motion
trump's attorneys argued serious novel questions about what a former president can produce records. it highlights the importance of executive privilege. if the appeals court rejects the argument and allows the national archives to produce the records, trump could still appeal to the supreme court. the house committee investigating the attack is also threatening to seek criminal contempt charges against trump's former chief of staff mark meadows if he refuses to show up for a deposition today. committee chair bennie thompson writes there's no valid legal basis for meadow's continued resistance. there was a letter sent to meadow's attorney noting that president biden would not be asserting executive privilege or immunity.
meadows' attorney put out a statement. it now appears the court will have to resolve this conflict. attorneys for kyle rittenhouse has rested their case. the defense closed. nbc news correspondent gabe gutierrez has the details from kenosha, wisconsin. >> ready for the jury. >> reporter: the kyle rittenhouse homicide trial is barreling toward its conclusion. his defense team resting its case after a use-of-force expert and video analyst testified. less than three seconds elapsed between when a protester fired a shot in the air and rittenhouse first opened fire with his ar-15-style rifle. the now 18-year-old faces six charges including intentional homicide after shooting and killing two men and wounding another after last summer's protest in kenosha, following
the police shooting of jacob blake. his emotional testimony backed up by another eyewitness today who recorded video that night. he testified that rosenbaum was pushing a dumpster that was on fire into police vehicles. >> as the first firearm goes off, rosenbaum is already charging kyle from behind, attempts to throw a bag at him, and rosenbaum is lunging toward him, very clearly, and kier fires. >> no rules on the defense team's request for a mistrial after the judge admonished the prosecutor for out-of-bounds prosecuting. >> go ahead. say what you want to say. >> i have to say, your honor, yesterday i was the target of your ire for disregarding your orders. today the defense is disregarding your lawyer. >> you've been here every day. >> every day. >> reporter: jacob blake's uncle
says he does not believe rittenhouse's testimony was genuine. >> what we saw yesterday was ridiculous. he should have been playing xbox at home. instead he was in the streets with a military-style gun, essentially killing two people with it. >> closing arguments are expected to be on monday. the prosecution says it's planning to ask the judge to consider lesser charges in addition to the more serious ones facing rittenhouse. elsewhere in the trial of three white men accused of murder in the death of ahmaud arbery, jury saw new video showing arbery making several visits to a partially constructed home months before he died. in each instance, he looks around the house and leaves. the last video shows arbery visiting the home before being chased by three white defendants. the footage is expected to be essential as to whether the defendants had a legal right to
chase him. the owner of the site said other people had also been on the property in the months leading up to arbery's killing. also in court, an attorney for one of the three white men accused of killing arbery objected to having reverend al sharpton in the courtroom. >> that they're going to be sitting with the victim's family one after another, obviously there's only so many pastors they can have, and if their pastor is al sharpton right now, then that's it. we don't want any more black pastors coming in here or jesse jackson or whoever was in here earlier this week sitting with the victim's family, trying to influence a jury in this case. >> black pastors. we should note the reverend al sharpton will be on "morning joe" later this morning. still ahead w covid cases on the rise in more than a dozen states, could we be seeing the start of a new winter surge. plurks as u.s. inflation

and trouble ling rise in covid cases. now states are coming up with their own rules when it comes to vaccines. nbc's miguel almaguer has the latest. >> reporter: there's and clear sign of and winter surge with covid cases climbing in 17 states. our national plateau is giving way to and steady rise in infections. >> we need every single bed that is in our state. >> reporter: already at and breaking point, colorado is now implementing crisis standards of care, prioritizing staff in their overwhelmed hospitals. >> you may have and different level of care had you not come in today versus maybe six months ago. >> reporter: declaring the entire state high risk for exposure, today colorado's governor signing an executive order allowing all adults regardless of age to immediately qualify for boosters. nationwide, only and third of
eligible seniors have gotten the added dose of protection. in california, doctors fear the low demand for boosters correlates directly with the rising claim in cases. flooded e.r.s in cities like fresno, perhaps the canary in the coal mine. >> this is and taste of what the winter surge is going to be like. >> reporter: while they're filling hospital beds and an accounting of 1,3 hyundaiing every day, massachusetts says cases are up 44%, with 60,000 fully vaccinated, testing positive for covid. >> why are we seeing so many breakthrough infections? >> the coronavirus comes back in waves. we do see protection does wane over time, but having that vaccination is and way of protecting yourself. >> reporter: with some older americans with waning immunity, there's and question over the young. the govern has ruled the mask
mandate violates students with disabilities who may be more vulnerable to illness. >> all i want is my child to be able to get and proper education without having to wear and mask. >> reporter: but across the country, just over half of all states have no rule on masks in schools. just as some regions relaxed restrictions, others are seeing and dangerous trend in new cases. >> back now to the legal battle surrounding the house investigation into the january 6th attack on capitol hill. former president trump is trying to with hold documents, citing executive privilege. yesterday and federal appeals court gave some coverage, at least for now. here's adam kinzinger reacting. >> some will spin this as and win because they have a lack of wins on their legal side. this is not unexpected. we see and very accelerated time
line to hear this case. it's not going to slow down our investigation, and i expect that, you know, keeping the supreme court potentially aside, we'll have these documenting fairly soon. >> joining us now, senior political correspondent. thank you so much for being here. let's talk about the subpoenas. do you have any sense of the timeline as to what's next? >> it's not going to delay the investigation, but it's going to delay the collection of documents that the committee is seeking from the national archives, and basically the expectation is that near the end of the month, they will get those documents, which is and wide array of information the committee has been seek about from the white house, call records, correspondence, emails
and stuff related to and around the january 6th insurrection. here's the thing to keep in mind though. yes, it's in delay, but the judges on the court that are deciding this are all democratic appointees, and so the expectation is in the end, they will appeal to the officials who want to bring these documents to light. >> all right. daniel, i know you've been covering this closely throughout the process. let's talk now about the committee's ultimatum to mark meadows. he's supposed to have and deposition today. unclear whether or not he'll show. we have our suspicions. what will happen if he doesn't because we know that steve bannon's case is still pending with the justice department. bannon, of course, also refused to cooperate, held in contempt. it's not clear the doj is going to do anything with that.
what sort of teeth does this threat really have? what's going to happen to meadows, according to the people you've been talking to? >> look. it's going to be the same thing that happened to bannon in the end. the committee sent and letter to meadows' lawyer laying out his argument for executive privilege that he says exempts him from testifying, from cooperating with the committee, does not apply here and that if he does not appear for the summons today, he is going to eventually be held in contempt. it's going to go to the house of representatives. there's probably going to be and vote. and you can put him in the same place as bannon. look, jon. i think we're going to to see this with and few of the most high-profile trump officials who were subpoenaed. they're going to do the same thing. that's because trump himself has said he doesn't want anyone close to him to cooperate with the committee. the number of officials and
former trump allies that have been subpoenaed keeps growing, so i expect a few will cooperate in the end. >> yeah. and certainly we should underscore meadows was right there at the end with former president trump even as many advisers left in the final weeks. he was there, in the oval office on january 6th. he was one of the last staffers to remain all the way to the end of the trump administration, so certainly question understand why the committee would value his testimony. daniel strauss, thank you very much. still ahead, do former presidents have envoy ambassadors? what's an envoy ambassador? we'll get into that. donald trump says he has one and now he's looking to weigh in on global affairs. what's the biden administration saying about that move? but before we go to break, we want to know why you're awake. email your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet

welcome back to "way too early." it's 5:30 on the east coast, 2:30 out west, but at least it's friday. i'm jonathan lemire. former president donald trump has been saying for months he should be the actual president. now he's taking his fantasy and step further. as and private citizen he sent an envoy ambassador. grinnell landed in kosovo this week, but because trump is not
the president, grinnell is not there? any way, shape, or form in and government official capacity. and statement from the former president reads in part, quote, the agreements my administration brokered are historic and should not be abandoned. many lives are at stake. today my envoy ambassador ric grenell visited the cause voe/serbia border to highlight this important agreement. and the biden administration said outside of his very active imagination, donald trump is no longer president and doesn't have any envoy ambassadors representing the united states. according to the upcoming book "betrayal" by abc news correspondent jonathan karl, trump was warned by campaign
manager paschall. it was and reference to the capital of lebanon that was in conflicts with other countries at the time. an excerpt details what led to that event. trump was convinced that was his real problem. he was desperate to get out of the white house and in front of his a.org supporters. he chose tulsa, oklahoma, which had and friendly republican governor and and mayor, and place where given covid, holding and rally might be dangerous, but unlike in most other states, it wouldn't have been against the law. the event was and failure with poor turnout that was mocked on social media. it also became -- this was foreshadowing for what would lie ahead -- and superspreader coronavirus event with many tests positive for covid. herman cain tested positive days after attending the rally and later died of covid-19. joining us now to talk about some of the lessons learned from the week that was today with and particular focus on the
republican party, former aide to the george w. bush white house and state departments elise jordan. she's an msnbc political analyst and "new york times" reporter jeremy peters. good morning to you both, we really appreciate you being here. elise, let's start with you. let's start with ric grenell. could trump face legal problems with sending him to kosovo as an envoy ambassador? is this going to have any impact whatsoever? >> it's going to have absolutely no impact except getting ric grenell and donald trump some much needed attention, which is clearly what they're doing with this exercise. you know, previously it's frowned upon for former presidents to be active in international affairs and do something that could be contrary to the current administration, but obviously that kind of nicety is something that donald trump is never going to heed by, and this is just really dumb.
an envoy ambassador? what is that? it's and double name for some position that doesn't even exist, and i'm just glad that ric grenell really needed some attention, donald trump really needed some attention, and sojd they chose to highlight this exercise, and ric grenell doing his own glorified thing and getting attention by going to the border. >> ric grenell is and famed twitter trash talker, elise. so get ready. your notifications are going to blow up later when he sees this. let's talk about politics domestically. we saw the new governor elect glenn youngkin had this balancing act. he didn't rebuke the former president trump entirely but kept him at arm's length. but we saw also chris christie be critical of the president in an interview.
you cover the republican party so closely. are they for members of the gop, or are they the exceptions rather than the rule. >> look. i think and number works in states where there's and closely divided electorate, where there are plenty former republicans, the people that rahm emanuel once called biden republicans that were so turned off by donald trump that they decided they could vote for somebody they saw as and centrist like biden. it's and narrow path, and it's and path that really doesn't work unless donald trump lets it. and they managed to keep trump at bay in virginia because he didn't really have and relationship with glenn youngkin. he didn't know glenn youngkin, but they did and good job of keeping donald trump feeling as if he had and stake in this and that glenn youngkin wasn't going
to trash him, wasn't going to distance himself from trump in and way that would offend the former president. so it was and really delicate line, and it kind of happened in and vacuum because it was the only republican race nationally -- it wasn't really and national race, but it felt like one because the eyes of the nation, the national media were on it. it's really the only dam in town. how do you do that and year from now when there are many races, races which trump has and vested interest because he's endorsed. i just don't see that happening, especially if, as all signs point that he's running for president again. >> elise, thanksgiving is tradition lail known for these fs, family, food, football, and now fraudulent elections. now trump is holding a thanksgiving special about what
happened in november 2020. as for the republicans, some of them anyway, become and little vocal about moving on, even trump supporters who say, hey, let's focus on the next election, not the last one. what kind of damage, let's say, could trump inflict on his own party as he continues to try to litigate these false narratives? >> donald trump is trying to destroy democracy and faith in the electoral process. in free and fair elections in the united states, that's the big picture damage he can do. but really if he wants to play around with mike lindell and pretend he's still president -- i have no idea where this broadcast is airing -- maybe they need to play act their fantasies and their audience. i really wonder who's tuning in at this day and age. maybe mike lindell will sell some pillows. >> that's always and possibility right before the holiday season. jeremy, it seems like in the republican party, the thing that
gets you in trouble is not tweeting about cartoons in which you kill opponents but voting. talk about the state of the gop and the house in particular and how does this play out? paul gosar, of course, is "the arizona republic" who tweeted the disgusting cartoons about his democratic colleagues, and yet those who voted for the bipartisan infrastructure bill face potential getting their committee assignment stripped. >> yeah. that's exactly right. i think it's and really telling example of where today's republican party is. you know, you mentioned glenn youngkin and chris christie. i mean chris christie is really the outlier here, and, you know, i don't want to doubt the sincerity of his criticisms of the president, but he is out there selling and book at the moment. you know, he's -- it's been very clear what he thinks the former president's threat to the democratic process is, but there aren't many people, frankly,
that are willing to say that at the moment, and those who are, have decided that their future is not in national politics for the most part. the governor of new hampshire last weekend spoke out against the former president's lies against the 20 election and said, look, as and party, we need to get beyond this. if we have and future as and national political party, we've got to talk about the future, not the past. and what did he decide to do this week? run for governor again and not run for u.s. senate. >> right. excellent point, jeremy. and elise jordan and jeremy peters, thank you, friends. have and great weekend. we'll talk to you both again soon. still ahead, we'll go live to cnbc for an early look at what's driving the day on wall street.

the dow jones is down and naz damage. it looks like we're going to end on and positive note but not enough to turn things around on and weekly basis. in asia, shares moved higher overnight. and lot of it focused on november 11th singles day, shopping in china, jonathan. >> that's right. inflation and ongoing global supply issues are sort of the story economically across the globe right now. this is the overlooked part of it. they're threatening the inventory of food banks. with holidays right around the corner should families who rely on these services expect to get the help they need? >> you're absolutely right. we're seeing the impact of inflation come through and hit food banks across the united states. some are worried they won't have enough inventory for the thanksgiving and christmas holidays as they approach. food banks were already under and huge amount of pressure to
face increased demand as and result of so many families being affected by the pandemic. now on top of that, they're surging with food prices, food costing two to three times what it normally would, logistics. there are signs that some of these supply chain issues are easing, but it's going to be and tricky period for families needing to access food banks this holiday season. >> we have billionaires playing in space. the space tourism business is booming. "virgin galactic" has sold 100 seats for future space flights. what's driving these successful sales, who's taking them, and where is this going? is this going to be and regular thing? >> people do want to go to space. that's what these numbers suggest. we heard yesterday 100 more people signed up since sales reopened in august. if that number seems low to you, it could be because of the price. it comes at $450,000 and pop.
