[ cheers and applause ] that is fantastic to hear. in that case, let's get to news. rmer white house chief strategist steve bannon claimed in an interview this week that i if pnt trump were to be re-elected, america will get, quote, "pure trump off the chain." oh, no.
12:38 am
no more inscrutable maof mystery? [ laughter ] what does off the chain look like? s i'm pretty sure someone tackle him and put pants on him as it [ la ] according to a new poll, former vice president joe biden now has a double-digit lead over bernie sanders in the iowa caucus. it's the most space bin has ever given anyone. [ laughter and applause ] while speaking to reporters t today, presidemp talked about his thoughts on the upcoming masters golf tournament saying, quote, "i think ita going to beat masters." well, it ought to be. you've certainly been practicing enough. [ lahter ] tomorrow is national only child day. said trump, "i got you a card, ivanka." [ laughter and applause ] ey michael avenatti was indicted today on 36 charges, including bank and wire fraud, in connection to his alleged attempt to extort millioom of
12:39 am
dollars ike. well, if you're thinking of putting him inail, i say just it. [ light laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] and if you do -- and if you do, please, please make him share a cell with michl cohen. i mean that -- [ laught ] it'll be like seinfeld moving in with newman. [ light laughter ] after facing additional charges stemming from her role in the recent college admissions cheating scandal, actress ri loughlin has reportedly reached out to lindsay lohan's former crisis manager for help. [ light laughter ] said the crisis manaare you sure? i'm not good at this." [ laughter and appla "i'm historically not good at this." and finally, netflix is reportedly planning to release nes first magazine. as soon as you're eading it, they send you another whether you want it or [ light laug ladies and gentlemen, we have a great show for you tonight. a [ chee applause ] he is starring in the broadway production of "burn this"
12:40 am
currently in previews and opening april 16th at the hudson theater here in neyork. adam driver, everybody. [ cheers and applause ] always so happy to have him here. you can see her in the new film "little" opening this weekend. regina hall is back, you guys. [ cheers and applause ]an he plays the very funny noho hank in the hbo series "barry." anthony carrigan is here, you guys. [ cheers and applause ] so it is a really, really good night. before we get to any of our guests, the president is resisting calls to release his tax returns and calling the people who investigate him fo on this, it's time for "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> seth: before we get to trump, a bunch of other crazy stuff happened today. ple, you might remember michael avenatti, the guy who used to be stormy daniels's lawyer. well, today, avenatti was charged with 36 counts of frd, perjury, failure to pay taxes, embezzlement, and other financial crimes. and 36 counts is a lot.
12:41 am
but when you look at him, you think, "i thought it would have been higher." [ laughter ]d e details of the indictment are truly insane. the "l.a. times" reports that avenatti stole millions of dollars from five clients. he put $2.5 million of that money into the purchase of a private jet. and in the other case, the money landed in the accounts of g.b. autosport, llc, which managed avenatti's re car team. s the first we're hearing of michael avenatti's race car team? [ light laughter ] that's the dead giveaway that s meone is bad news. the race car trackere james bond meets the villain for the first time as he's pulling e off hiet and his racing gloves. mr. bond, should we speak somewhere quieter? [ light laughter ] also, did you not see "goodfellas"? when you rip people off, you gotta play it cool with the you're like a guy who buys a ferrari and asks for the vanity plate -- bank robber. [ laughter ] while he was doing this, avenatti was actively putting himself in the spotlight. he said he was going to run forn
12:42 am
presiden020. he made more appearances on cnn than the words "breaking news." and a lot of people fell for avenatti, probably because his job description was always ttorney" and not "race car team owner!" [ laughter ] while that was hwipening, leaks founder julian assange was also arrested in london, where he was dragged out of the ecuadorian embassy looking like santa claus with a manifesto. [ light laughter ] "you're all naughty! i have it on my list!" [ applause ] i mean -- based on that treatment, i can't wait to read what assange writes on the ecuador embassy's airbnb page. [ light laughter ] now ecuador had granted assange asylum in their embassy, but ch withdrew it, wllowed u.k. authorities to arrest him. according to "the daily beast",m ecuadosed a new and detailed set of rules on its fugitive guest, banning unannounced visitors and in requassange to pay his own medical bills, clean up after himself in the bathroom, and tend to the wellbeing, food, cleanliness, and proper care of his cat. [ light laughter ]as nge bristled at the restrictions, and took ecuador's foreign ministry to court.
12:43 am
he took them to court over his cat. [ laughter ] usually people go to court to get restraining orders against their cats. [ light laughter ] "please, your honor, he keeps glaring at me like he wants to kill me." [ light laughter ] now look, you can think assange is a creep, which he is, and also be worried about what this means for press free but one person who's always been very clear about where he standa on wik is donald trump. and yet when trump was asked today about wikileaks, which he repeatedly praised tout the campaign, he pretended he didn't know anything about it. >> mr. president, do you still s love wikil >> i know nothing about wikileaks. it's not my thing. [ light laughter ] >> seth: oh, it's not your thing? well, what is your thing? [ indistinct chatter ] >> you know, there are 15 players capable of winning, and i guess you could say there are a lot more thathat. they're great players. i don't think a field for the masters has ever been this deep. i was watching late last night, and theyere going over the different players. i think the field has never been so deep. but always phil and tiger and
12:44 am
dustin. i mean, you have so many great players. but they were just saying, they're younger, they're stronger, they have never hit t e ball this lo. they have never e ball this accurately. they have never putted better than they do now. you know, the whole thing is pretty incredible. but the field is very, very deep. i think it's going to be a great masters.s >> seth: thae most coherent answer he's ever given. [ laughter ] and it wasn't even that coherent. [ cheers and applause ] if being president was just answering golf questions, this guy would be george washington. [ laughter ]t riously, how can you say wikileaks is not your thing? your government just arrested a guy whose organization you repeatedly praised throughout the campaign, and you're actinge omeone just offered you weed at a party. h, no thanks, man. that's not my thing." [ light laughter ] also, do you not remember when you sa all of this stuff? >> the sad part is we don't talk about wikileaks. because it's incredi you see so much from these
12:45 am
wikileaks. you see so much. boy, i love reading those wikileaks. i'll tell you, this wikileaks stuff is unbelievable. this wikileaks is like a treasure trove. wikileaks is amazing. wikileaks, i love wikileaks. [ light laughter >> seth: "i love wikileaks." [ laughter and applause ] he said it -- he said it likthe guy at the end of a rom-com who can finally admit he's in love with his best friend. "i can finally say it, i love carol!" [ light laughter ] while trump was dodging questions about his previous wasupport for wikileaks, h also dodging questions about everything from the mueller report to his tax returns. last week, democrats requested p six years of t personal and business tax information from 2013 to 2018, including individual tax returns and ig returns from businesses linked to trump. eight businesses. of course, it's hard to find those returns since seven of those businesses went bankrupt years ago. [ light laughter ] if you want to find the tax returns for trump steaksdkr trump you have to go deep into the irs basement and look
12:46 am
in the box labeled "obvious scams." [ laughter ] but the law is clear. democrats on the house ways and means committee have the power q tost trump's tax returns. and yet trump told reporters yesterday he would just flat out igre the request using the same obviously false excuse he's been using since 2016 -- he's under audit. and towards the lid of his ra answer, he found a way to start bragging about his businesses. >> while i'm under audit, i won't do it. if i'm not under audit, i would h it. i had no problem w. but while i'm under audit, i would not give my taxes. there's no low now, isay this -- i would love to give them, but i'm not going to do it while i'm under audit. what i he done is approximately a 104-page summary, and really in great detail, of assets and values and -- nobody wants to go over that, because it's so good. i built a great company. one of the best companies.
12:47 am
i have some of the greatest assets in the world. i did a good job. >> seth: well now he's just doing affirmations in public. light laughter ] "i did a good job. i'm good at business. my wife does like me." also, can you please just drop this dumb audit excuse? it's obviously fake.yi you've been sang it since 2016. there's no way it's taking the irs three years to go through your tax returns. and if it has, that doesn't make you look great. you told someone it took you a week to clean your kitchen, they'd be like, "how [ bleep ] up was your kitchen?" [ laughter ] [ cheers and applause ] while trump is just ignoring the w on tax returns, he's also sounding increasingly unhinged on the russia investigation. now because trump keeps lying about it, we have to just take a step back here and remember hoof alhis got started. russia hacked e-e democrats' ils while they were doing business deals with trump and it making contacttrump campaign officials.
12:48 am
and the entire time these people were lying about it. and then when the fbi started investigating it, trump asked the director to shut it down and pledge his loyalty to trump. and when he refused, trump fired him. and then he said on tv he fired him becausinof the russia stigation. he told the russians he fired him because of the russian investigation. and then because his republican attorney general had r himself, his republican deputy attorney general appointed a special counsel, robert mueller, who is registered republican. [ light laughter ] and, while this was happening, putialso gave trump a soccer ball. [ laughter and applause ] which was definitely, definitely sathe first time trump evea soccer ball. [ laughter ] "thank you for this beautiful gift. i'm going to say a russian in boball? [ light laughter ] and it probably has, when you open it, a littler bowlingall in it. [ laughter ] and then another little one and a thenittle one. [ applause ] hopefully at the end, a tiny marshmallow."sh i didn't have to keep recapping all this stuff every time we talk about it. i'm starting to think we're just gonna need a permanent scroll that stays up throughout the show. [ light laughter ] but i ha to keep recapping it, because trump keeps lying about it.
12:49 am
yesterday, histtorney general peated trump's conspiracy theory that his campaign was spied on. and then trump suggested the investigation was somehow illegal or unwarranted, and eved he people investigating him were traitors. >> it was an illegal investigation. it was started illegally. everything about it was crooked. every single thing about it. there were dirty cops. these were bad people. and this was an attempted coup. this was an attempted takedown of a president. this was an illegal witch hunt, and everybody knew it. and they knew it, too. and they got caught. and what they did was treason. >> seth: my god, man. now you're accusing people of coups and treason. i'd say you should start growing a dictator beard, but based on your actual hair, i'm not sure o that would look. [ laughter and applause ] this is why it's crucial that decisions involving the mueller report remain independent of trump. and yet yesterday when his attorney general william barr was asked if he briefed the white house on the muell report, barr's answer was very evasive.
12:50 am
>> has anyone in the white house seen any of the report? >> you know, i'm not gonna -- i'm not gonna -- as i said, i'm landing the planh now. and, uh, you know, i've been willing to discuss my -- my letters and the process going forward. but the report is going to be out next week. and i'm just not going to get into the details of the process until the plane is on the ground. >> seth: the plane has been on the ground. mueller landed the plane. you're the crew guy re to drive the little gate thingy up to the door -- [ laughter ] so we can get off the plane. this is why -- [ cheers and applause ] this is why we need aggressive oversight of the trump administration, whether it's on the mueller report ohis tax returns. and yet republicans are doing the opposite. they are protecting him. for example, after the mimocratic chairman of the house ways and means cee richard neal submitted his formal request to the irs for trump's tax turns, louisiana senator john kennedy went on tv and straight up called neal a moron.
12:51 am
>> chairman neal, powerful man, head of ways and means. i know he's an adult, but i don't think he's like a real adult. [ light laughter ] he says that he needs trump's tax returns. he says it's policy not politics. he has said, i think o that the reason he needs them is that he needs to determine how wellhe irs is auditing taxpayers. i can't believe he really thinks the american people are gonna fall for that. it must really suck to be that dumb. [ laughter >> seth: it doesn't suck to be that dumb, it sucks for your boss to be that dumb. t that guy you answer to. maybe think about where your life is at. u're a united states senator and you take marching orders from a guy who once got on air force one with toilet paper stuck to his shoe. [ laughter ] republicans in congress keep trying to defend tmp from democrats, but their efforts keep falling flat.
12:52 am
and the dumbest example of that came this week during a hearing on trump's climate polies. democrats called former secretarof state john kerry as a witness and during the hearing kpublican congressman thomas massie frtucky tried to question kerry's credentials. specifically his college degree. kerry has a bachelor of arts in political science, a common degree that lots of people have. and yet massie thought it was in someof brilliant gotcha to point that out, resulting in one of the dumbest linesinf questioninhe history of american politics. >> it sounds like you're questioning the credprtials of thident's advisers currently. but i don't think we should question your credentials today. isn't it true you have a science degree'srom yale? whhat? >> bachelor of arts degree. >> is it a political science degree? >> yes, political science. >> so how do you get a bachelor of arts in a science? [ laughter ] >> well, it's liberal arts education and degree. it's a bachelor. >> okay, so it's not really science. so i think it's some appropriate that somebody with a
12:53 am
pseudoscience degree is here pushing pseudoscience in front of our committee today. i want to ask you -- >> are you serious? [ laughter ] i mean, this really a serious happening here? >> seth: it is. unfortunately -- [ cheers and applause ]un rtunately -- i'm sorry to say it is a serious happening. [ light laughter ] and that is the perfect phrasing. because this whole trump e h feels likeror movie called "a serious happening." [ laughter ]ct this is anl member of congress who can't wrap his heard around the fact that you l n get a bachelor of arts degree in politiience. despite the fact that he himself has a degree from m.i.t! [ light laughter ] i mean, why stop there, maie? "senator kerry, you're a married man, correct? then please explain to us how you could possibly have a bachelors degree." [ laughter ] [ applause ]
12:54 am
also, not that anything matters anymore, but that's the same john kerry who was falsely b criticizconservatives not for avoiding vietnam, but for going and supposedly doing a bad job. meanwhile these same conservatives now heap praise on lieutenant bone spurs over here, heose only purple heart is one struggling to get air through his gravy-clogged veins. again nothing matts. because these are the people protecti the president in congress. the president refuses to release his tax returns and calls anyonh investigates him treasonous, and republicans actually expect us to believe they're the party of the constitution and the rule of law. i don't know if anyone still believes that. if they do -- >> it must rlly suck to be at dumb. laughter and applause ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause ] l be right back with mor "late night", everybody.

[ laughter ] >> so i'm just surprised by fans ineneral. >> seth: right, right. [ laughter ] >> it's all very new to me. eebut a lot of people have saying it's the first time they've been to a play, which i love that. you know, because we do this nonprofit. ve had like theater fixe along the way where, you know, we do -- ataf is our nonprofit, ts in the armed forces where we do contemporary american plays and read it for a military audience.
1:03 am
so i kind of got the -- been doing those for the past five wyears and got -- you knon you take theater outside of new york, then it kind of becomes a weapon in a way. because, almost new york ikdiences can kind of get, "oh, i've seen every, you know, production of "hedda gabler," ll and ou which one is good or not. >> seth: yeah. >>ut a lot of our audience it's been very, like, kind of, it's like a dream as far as how diverse it is, how young it is, how -- old i guess would be the opposite. >> seth: [ la ] >> so it's a mixture. a lot of people at t door to get back to where it started. and kind of said that this is the first time they had seen a play, which is really exciting to me. s h: you obviously can't watch your stage work but you could watch your film work. but you do not like to do that. >> right, well because i'm used to doing plays. i came from a theater background. so it never really equated to me that why would i want to watch that. >> seth: yeah. >> so long as i know whait feels like, that's good enough for me.ut >> seth:hen it was problematic because you were an actual "star wars" fan, so you then -- could you not watch theo
