tv   Way Too Early With Jonathan Lemire  MSNBC  January 21, 2022 2:00am-3:00am PST

2:00 am
that is going to do it for us tonight. we're hoping for a slower news day tomorrow because today was craaa-zy. i'll see you tomorrow. "way too early" with jonathan lemire is up next. i only need 11,000 vote. fellows, i need 11,000 votes. give me a break. look, all i want to do is this. i just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have. >> there's nothing wrong with saying that, you know that you've recalculated. >> donald trump and that infamous phone call asking for enough votes to overturn that state. the question is will that tape
2:01 am
now become evidence before a grand jury? plus, another investigation hitting close to home for the trump family as the january 6th committee seeks testimony from ivanka trump. the question is what do lawmakers want to know? and the biden administration will get another chance to warn russia against invading ukraine when secretary of state tony blinken meets with his russian counterpart at any moment now. the question is will the face-to-face ease rising tensions in europe? it's "way too early" for this. ♪♪ good morning and welcome to "way too early," the show that would never think about coasting into the weekend. i'm jonathan lemire on this friday, january 21st. we'll start with some breaking news. we're going to be following live pictures from geneva where any moment now secretary of state blinken is set to meet
2:02 am
with his russian counterpart, foreign minister, sergey lavrov. we can see the setup in geneva with the flags. this comes as there's a continuing military buildup on the border with ukraine. the threat of conflict between those countries is very real, growing, and very dangerous. we'll be listening in to this high-stakes summit all morning and will bring you any updates as they happen. the negotiations come as president joe biden is clarifying his comments about a, quote, minor incursion, insisting that any russian troop movement inside ukraine will be considered an invasion. >> i've been absolutely clear with president putin. he has no misunderstanding if any, any assembled russian units move across the ukrainian border, that is an invasion. it will be met with severe and coordinated response. let there be no doubt at all. if putin makes this choice,
2:03 am
russia will pay a heavy price. the clarification comes a day after sparked criticism nationally and internationally by suggesting that a minor incursion by moscow would lead to lesser consequences. the ukraiian president pushed back yesterday against biden's comments, saying, quote, we want to remind the great powers that there are no minor incursions and small nations, just a there are no minor casualties and little grief from the loss of loved ones. say this as the president of a great power. meanwhile the biden administration stressed assurance. this comes after president biden alluded to differences among nato allies and how to respond to russia. as i mentioned, blinken set to meet with russia's foreign minister in a few minutes. meanwhile there are u.s.
2:04 am
sanctions against four officials who they say were helping the kremlin. joining us now to dig into this growing crisis, white house reporter for "the washington post," tyler pager. good morning, tyler. we're glad to see you as always as we look again at the live pictures from geneva. give us a sense -- there's lavrov right there -- give us a sense how the president's comments first from his press conference of the day saying a minor incursion might lead to a smaller response and his attempts to sort of clarify and clean up yesterday. what sort of impact do those comments have on ukraine, russia, but also our european allies. >> right. it's great to be with you this morning. as we've seen from president biden before throughout his political career, some clumsy language causing a minor uproar both domestically and abroad. in this case, those comments about a minor incursion spooking ukrainian partners there. you showed the tweet from the president zelensky there.
2:05 am
and i think the point there being that this is a real divide and debate among nato allies about what to do if moscow decides to invade ukraine and what the scale and scope of that response would be. and biden just kind of said that out in the open. i think those are things they prefer to keep behind closed doors as they negotiate and debate among nato allies about how they would respond. i think ultimately that comment about the minor incursion was largely cleaned up. the white house and senior administration officials went on a full court press to show that biden misspoke a little bit and that they would -- did not want to insinuate that they would be permissive of any sort of renewed russian aggression into ukraine. but, again, look. you know, as joe biden said, as a candidate, the words of a president can matter. they can bring troops to war or
2:06 am
to peace. this does not ultimately dictate what president putin does in moscow, but u.s. president biden said he expects moscow to invade ukraine, and so i think the meeting that we're watching these live scenes from geneva are incredibly high-stakes. these are some of the last diplomatic efforts on the u.s.'s behalf to find a diplomatic path out of the aggression we're seeing along the russia and ukrainian border. >> yeah. the president voiced that prediction, that putin would go in, a sort of stronger take as the administration officials head to that point. they say, yes, we think it's a very real possibility. with the minor incur, they were like, if they did a cyber attack, u.s. might do the same in kind. but biden said any troop movement would be considered an invasion. have we gotten moscow's reaction to that yet? >> look. i think moscow is, you know,
2:07 am
continuing their stance that, you know, they're not trying to invade ukraine, downplaying any sort of military buildup as normal domestic national security efforts. they continue to say that that is not part of their plan. all nato and u.s. intelligence suggests otherwise, and so i think one of the fears is that biden's comments may make it easier for putin to invade. the u.s. has tried to be clear that they will respond with devastating sanctions even worse than what they applied on moscow after the annexation of crimea in 2014 and biden's comments suggesting that there's divide among nato allies about how they respond punctures the fact that they've been careful to present, but, you know, it doesn't tell the full story about the behind the scene sscenes-negotiation.
2:08 am
that may make it harder for them to present a united front particularly with russia that looks and is very aware of everything that the president of the united states would say. >> we're seeing secretary of state blinken beginning his opening remarks there in geneva. we'll keep an eye on things as the show continues. tyler pager, we really appreciate your insight this morning. >> in another story, the select committee of january 6th is now requesting a meeting with ivanka trump. in a letter to trump's eldest daughter and former white house adviser, the committee chairman has evidence that ivanka was in the oval office on the morning of the capitol attack and observed a phone call between trump, her father, and the vice president mike presence in which the president tried to pressure pence to reject the election results. the committee chairman says the panel also wants to ask ivanka about testimony she was asked multiple times to persuade her father to intervene, including
2:09 am
by senator lindsey graham, a close ally. the committee wants ivanka to clear up whether the president gave orders to deploy to the national guard. they pointed to her comments on the day of the attack in which she condemned the violence. the letter also details the scramble as the white house tried to figure out how president trump would respond to the violence unfurling at the capitol. the committee says it wants to know why white house staff didn't simply ask the president to go into the briefs room and appear on live television. general keith kellogg told the committee that staff believed a live unscripted appearance by the president would have made matters worse. the white house decided to release that prerecorded video in which the president never condemned the violence but did ask his supporters to leave the capitol. the committee says it has information that suggests that it took several takes for the president to urge his supporters to, quote, go home. a reminder, he also said he loved them. the panel is seeking the unused video clips from the national

archives. "the washington post" has new information this morning that rudy giuliani spearheaded and coordinated the effort to convene and submit an alternate state of electors in the battleground states won by joe biden in the 2020 election. that's according to former campaign officials and party leaders who spoke to the paper on the condition of anonymity. the campaign scrambled to help ee lengths gain access to the capitol billing and to distribute draft language that would later be submitted the congress according to the former campaign officials and party leaders. the newspaper goes on to say this. the campaign also worked to find replacements for the electors who were unable to participate or unwilling. and the rival slates were leveraged as evidence in the last-ditch efforts to give vice president pence the ability to reject biden's victory when he presided over the electoral vote count. the january 6th select kplit tee subpoenaed giuliani earlier this week. he did not respond to messages from "the post," seeking

early." it's just after 5:30 a.m. on the east coast, 2:30 out west. i'm jonathan lemire. it's friday, so here on "way too early" that means we took a look at the lessons learned this past week, and, perhaps, one thing we picked up, there's no such thing as a manor incursion in eastern europe. president biden is facing challenges on the foreign policy front and here at home as his push for voting rights and expansion of infrastructure faces serious opposition of republicans and a corner of his
2:32 am
own party. joining us now for our lessons learned segment, contributing editor for "the daily beast," moll. john fast and columnist john nichols. we're so pleased you're both with us today. tom, let's start with russia. we've been keeping an eye on the talks in geneva between blinken and lavrov, but what lessons has biden picked up as to perhaps previous russian aggression as to how to deal with aggression of a bully like putin? >> i think one thing the president is learning all over again is when presidents talk, words matter. had a long stretch where a president's words didn't mean very much and didn't have a whole lot of content, and the president has learned a lesson that he is, in fact, the leader of the free world and the allies look at him and the russians pay attention to what he says for good or ill, so i think the
2:33 am
burden of leadership has returned to the shoulders of the american president, and i think that's crashed in on biden who has a long history of dealing with foreign policy, but i think that reality has crashed in on him in the past weeks, probably beginning with the withdrawal from afghanistan, but now facing the potential possibility of major war in the middle of europe. >> so, molly, let's shift to issues back here at home. we heard from senator bernie sanders, independent from vermont, that he would support a primary challenge against the two democratic senators who have been a thorn in the sides of both the president's agenda, in particular voting rights, of course, manchin and sinema. talk to us about that idea and also will these divisions we're seeing among democrats, could that make it easier for republicans to win back the senate this fall? >> well, a primary challenge against manchin is kind of a joke because that's a state that
2:34 am
trump won by 65%. so you're not going to have a democrat that's going to win that who's not named joe manchin. i think that's the reality there. sinema, i think, there's a very likely scenario that you have a challenge there because that's a blueing state. right now her favorability is 8%, which i have never heard of. i think it's very possible. look, there's definitely division with democrats. there's a problem with the filibuster. you know, there's a lot of interoffice drama. i think it could -- i mean like democrats still have a year until the midterms, and if they get control of messaging and they focus on what people are interested in, these kitchen table issues, and they run on a bold agenda, they could turn it around. so i hope so. >> so obviously, tom, any discussion of the vote right now
2:35 am
has to include former president donald trump and his efforts to continue to undermine the faith that americans can have in the balloting process, the most sacred part of our democracy. what is your current assessment about the danger level that we all face due to what he is doing? >> i think we've never had a situation like this where a president out of office is continuing to attack the legitimacy of the basic processes of the constitution of the united states, and so the danger is incredible because he's -- this is going to result in more violence no matter how the election goes because trump's going to declare somehow that it's not fair, and we've seen what happens when that happens, unless somehow he is -- if he runs, if he's returned to
2:36 am
office. but i think he's already planted the idea that no matter what happens, the votes are rigged, and so i think we're headed -- especially with the republicans likely to take the house and perhaps the senate in '22 and then a tough fight for joe biden in '24, i think we're facing potentially the end of what we think of as american democracy now. i mean i really think it's that dire, and i think the threat from trump and the republicans who enable him has become that existential to the united states. >> let me put the question to you, molly. what you do think? do you think what tom said that a democracy is necessary on the ballot for this november? >> oh, yeah.
2:37 am
i think a lot of people who study, you know, the fall of democracy can point to numerous moments in the last couple of years that have looked really dire and ominous. and, yeah, for sure. look, even when, you know, during that presser, biden said he was a little bit worried about how it would go in these midterm elections because all of these states have done -- made it like 16 -- 13 or 16 states have made it harder for people to vote. so a lot of these republicans on the state level have sort of doubled down on trumpism and turned away from democracy, and i think it's really worrying, and it's already a question. and you have these secretaries of state who have said that they care more about trump and keeping trump in office than they do about fairness or about what really happened. so i think, yes, we have one party that's completely against democracy, and we have another party, and you can't have a two-party system where one party
2:38 am
doesn't believe in the fundamental premise of the whole thing. so, yeah, i think it's really scary. >> white house press secretary jen psaki clarified yesterday what the president said in that news conference saying, look, he does believe americans can have faith in the vote totals in november, but expressing, worry, molly, about what you said about what the state legislatures have done to change the process. guys, this is a wonderful conversation. we would love to have you both back soon. have a great weekend to you both. still ahead, we're going live to cnbc for what's driving the markets ahead of the opening bell. plus, peloton made a ton of money at the start of the pandemic. now, not is much. the latest news for the bike and treadmaker.

shares plunge after they delivered their earnings. effectively lots of jitters around inflation and the outlook for monetary policy with regard to what the federal reserve is going to do and in particular investors are grappling with what to do with those u.s. tech stocks that have performed so well over the last several years. >> i saw a lot of buzz about this next story yesterday. netflix, which is reported lower than projected subscriber predictions for the final quarter of 2021. they seemed to take a hit. what can investors expect from netflix this year? >> well, you can say that again, jonathan. shares were down around 20% in after hours yesterday after the company delivered these numbers, and effectively it is all about the outlook. netflix said for the first quart ore thf year it expects to add 2.5 million subscribers compared to the 3.89 million it added in q1, 2021.
2:45 am
analysts had more optimistic expectations going in. some of them expected to add nearly 7 million for the first quarter. why are they forecasting lower subscriber growth than anticipated? well, number one, they say the content they're going to add is going to be more back end loaded, so that's one factor. some big premieres set for march. but the second, perhaps, bigger factor is competition with netflix saying increased competition was, in fact, one factor that's weighing on subscriber growth numbers. the reality is the jury is still out as to how many of these streaming giants will survive and who those survivors will be. >> peloton, of course, had a lot of success at the beginning of the pandemic. it seems less so of late, but that you're pushing back on a report that it plans to temporarily stop production of its bikes and treadmills. what can you tell us about this? >> this story got a huge amount of attention yesterday we go a
2:46 am
scoop out of the u.s. cnbc team yesterday that the company plans to temporarily halt bike and treadmill production. effectively peloton has so much inventory on hand and there's not enough demand to warrant further production according to documents obtained by cnbc. the dpaep said in a confidential meeting it has seen a significant reduction in demand. jonathan, you mentioned the company's pushback. the company says the report is false and incomplete and not reflect irv of pet on the's strategy, but one thing is clear. the company is under some duress in having to reset their strategy, reset their production goals. and along with what we heard from netflix yesterday, this demonstrates the difficulty that management teams are facing in predicting consumer demand as we emerge from the pandemic and move through the next phases. >> yeah. big story lines to follow, not just about the individual
