12:41 am
of his presidency, trump enjoyed complete immunity and freedom to do whatever he wanted. because republicans in congress let him get away with itbu then, after democrats won back control of the house in november and gained the power to investigate him, trump threatened to go to war. ga>> if they start investing you, can you compartmentalize that and still continue to work withhehem for the benefit of t rest of the country -- >> no. >> or are all bets off >> no. if they do that, then it's just -- all it is is a war-like posture. >> seth: i can't exactly imagine trump in a war-like posture. mehe spends most of his tin a duck-like posture. [ laughter ] if he were at "the battle of winterfell", he wouldn't have been on the front lines or fighting a dragon. he would have been sitting under a in his golf cart. [ light laughter ] [ applause ] but now, tru and his team are showing us their war-like posture, after his attorney general william barr refused to show up for a hearing, today, in the house judiciary committee to answer questions special counsel robert mueller's report. barr refused to show up specifically because the committee wanted to let lawyers ask him questions. >> william barr informing the l
12:42 am
house panel he wilt testify as scheduled he had been scheduled to testify to the house judiciary committee about his handling of the mueller report but barr rejected the committee's plan to have one of its staff lawyers question him alongside lawmakers. >> we cannot permit the admistration to dictate to congress how we operate. he is terrified of having to face a skilled attorney. s >> seth: and i'me he is. usually when you work for trump, the only attorney you have to face is this guy and he is definitely not skilled.gh [ lilaughter ] he looks like he can't believe he's the president's lawyer. [ laughter ] frame of a clip from "america's funniest home videos." [ laughter ] if you tuned in late and saw this, you'd immediately say,st "oh, that guy juot hit in the nuts by a seesaw." [ laughter ] so with barr refusing to show up, democrats decided to make a show of his cowardice by holding a hearing with an empty chair where barr would have been sitting. and then immediately after the hearing, democrats used the opportunity to slam barr for refusing to show up. >> i don't feel that i can trust anything that the attorney general is saying.
12:43 am
because i don't know who the attorney general works for >> attorney general bill barr is now one of the most dangerous men in washington, d.c >> the so-called attorney general is abrasive, evasive and unpersuasive >> seth: man, this confirms everyo's worst fear. if you don't show up to a party, the people who do are gonna talk [ bleep ] about you. a [ laughter alause in rhyme but democrats didn't stop at just calling out barr. congressman steve cohen decided to moc chicken in barr's place and bringing out a bucket of kfc and then he brought out the chicken statue again, during an interview after the hearing, to ally hit the point home. >> rep. steve cohen of tennessee started eating a bucket of morning while lawmakerd the press waited to see if barr would show up.ss >> tenne democrat steve cohen then placed a chicken statue and a bucket of kfc in front of the empty chair, poking fun at barr's refusal to appearhi
12:44 am
>>en barr should have shown up today and answer questions. [ laughter ] >> we are lookatg at images of you hat committee hearing, today, with what appears to be a bucket of fried chicken. [ laughter ] o and there it is you brought props, i see, with you here what is the message you're trying to send >> the message is that bill barr is a chicken [ laughter and applause >> seth: oh. is that the message? i'm -- [ light laughter ] i'm not sure we got it, pal. [ laughter ] also, dude, if you want kfc, just order kfc it's finti you don't need tit into the hearing. [ light laughter ] "and he's probably not here. because he knew we'd be hitting him with a mcflurry of questions. [ laughter ] [ applause ] so barr decided not to show up and yet republicans on the committee still wanted time to complain not about barr, but about the democrats. like congressman matt gaetz. gaetz tried to interrupt the committee chairman as he wasap wrng up the hearing. but he was only able to get a few words in before his mic was cut off. >> we need the information without delay. the hearing is adjourn >> mr. chairman, i -
12:45 am
>> and we'll do so with trampling minority rigs. >> it's gonna be, mr. chairman, where there's not going to be a recognition of members who seek legitimate inquiry as to the procedures [ light laughter ] >> seth: wow, forget muting someone on twitter turns out you can mute him i real life. [ laughter ] seriously, can we please try that next time trump holds a rally? >> look, it's a rigged system. okay if i told you how -- [ light laughter ] [ cheers and applause >> seth: so, that was it that was it. barr just refused to show up ans answer questiobout how he handled one of the most highly anticipated reports in modern political history. and that might be because when he fed skilled questioning from experienced senators in a hearing yesterday, he often had no answer. like when senator kamala harris asked barr if anyone in the white house had ever asked him to open an investigation into anyone and barr clearly did not want to answer the question. >> has the president or anyoneus at the white hoever asked or suggested that you open an investigation of anyone? yes or no, please, sir >> um --
12:46 am
the president or anybody else? >> it seems you'd remember something like that and be able to tell us >> yeah, but i'm trying to grapple with the word "suggest." i mean, there have been discussions of matters out there that - they have not asked me to open an investigation but -- >> perhaps they've sw.gested >> i don't k [ light laughter ] i wouldn't say suggest >> hinted? >> i don't know. [ light laughter ] >> inferred? you don't know okay >> seth: if it takes you that long to answer something, the answer is "yes." if you go in for your performance review at chipotle and your boss says, "just one last question, brad. have you ever wrapped your genitals in a tortilla?" [ light laughter ] and brad says, "uhh -- light laughter ] i'm trying to --ht [ light laug ] trying to grapple with the word 'wrap.'" [ laughter ] [ applause ]s yes. brad wrapped his [ bleep ] in a tortilla
12:47 am
that happened. so barr lied about mueller's ndings before anyone else got to see them. that's why mueller sent his letter to barr complaining as.ut the proces a letter he sent in march, but which we only found out about this week. and when he was asked about that letter at his hearing, yesterday, barr basically just shrugged it off and specifically complained about theone. >> this letter was an extraordinary act. a career prosecutor rebuking the attorney general of the ta united ss. i know of no other instance of - >> but he was also political appointee.ic and he was a polit appointee with me at the department of justice. i don't -- you know, the letter is a bitnitty. and i think it was probably written by one of his staff people >> seth: sorry, did you call it snitty ar oyou the attorney general the dowager countess [ laughter ] also, you know, of course he was snitty he spent two years working on a 400-page report about a criminal conspiracy to interfere in a presidential election. and then you wrote a four-page summary lying about it i'd be snitty, too it's like if michelangelo unveiled the sistine chapel and
12:48 am
then the pope just put a plaque under it that said "two dudes touching fingers." [ laughter ] so barr lied to the american people and to congress and now he's just not showatg up to hearings ll which means the next thing congress should do is call mueller himself to testify so we can actually hear from the guy who wrote e report democrats in the house - [ applause ] democrs in the house have said they want to do that but in the senate, republican senator lindsey graham, chairman of the judiciary committee, said flat-out he definitely will not call mueller to testify. >> why not call for mueller to testify? >> because i'm not going to do anymore. enough already it's over. >> seth: no, it's not over just because you said it's over we should hear from mueller, because for one thing we never do i mean, i don't even know what his voice sounds like. maybe he sounds like bobcat goldthwait from "police academy. >> and i'd like to discuss with you something that would be vital for you to know -- [ laughter ] >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause we'll be right back with adam sandler, everyone [ cheers andpplause

♪ [ cheers and applause >> seth: our next guest represents texas' 23rd congressional district in the house of representatives please welcome to the show representative wilhurd, everybody. ♪ [ cheers and applause ♪ congressman.come to the show, >> tnk you thanks for having me that 8g band and valerie right? you know >> seth: they're fantastic right? >> you know? [ cheers and applause >> seth: so, you are an interesting character in the world right now. you are a republican congressman from a border district in texas, a gigantic district. >> that's right. >> seth: bigger than many states you are in opposition to trump's plan for a border wall you are also an ex-intelligence officer for the cia, which is something that obviously, the president is also taking issue with geyou were an undercover a in the cia. >> i was
1:20 am
>> and when you left the cia, you had -- how do you tell people that that's what you beeo g? 'cause you hadn't been able to tell anybody that. right? >> i hadn't. it was a little awkward. because -- and i e-mailed like,y 10,000 of avorite friends and said, "hey, guys i'm running for congress oh, and by the way, i actually i workthe cia. [ light laughter ] and so, it was -- i had some awkward conversations after that >> seth: by the way, i can't from 10,000 friends.ret [ laughter ] i -- i have like seven friends and i can't keep anything from them k >> yeah, iw. exactly. >> seth: so, you know, speak to the fact that you -- again, you are on in the real -- on the front lines of this border situation. and you are against the president's wall is it frustrating to you that so many of your other republican colleagues, because you voted against it when you wanted money for the wall, thato many republican colleagues have chosen the president, as opposed to you, who are actually on the front lines? >> look, here's myty responsibiis to explain what's really going on, on the border so i have 820 miles, t 29 counties, twoe zones. it takes 10 1/2 hours to drive
1:21 am
across my district at 80 miles an hour, which is actually the spd limit in most of it. >> seth: right >> i found out it recently this weekend that's not the speed limit in all of it [ laughter ] so, and -- look, i spent almost a decade as an undercover officer in the cia as you said i was the dude in the back alley at 4:00 in the morning collecting intelligence on threats to the homeland. i chased baduys all over the world, russian intelligence officers, terrorists, nuclear weapon proliferators and so i have some experience on how you stop bad folks and building a 30 foot high concrete structure from sea to t shining sea is most expensive and least effective way to do border security. and part of that is there's parts of the border where boer patrol's response time is measured in hours to days. and so, if your response time ia measured hours to then guess what a wall is actually not a physical barrier so, let's have technology. let's -- every mile of the border is different from every other miles so, let'ke sure we're using the right tool in that place so, we should be talking about a strategy
1:22 am
but let me tell you this what's happening at the border, right now isdeed, a crisis last month, 100,000 people -- 103,000 people came in here illegally. and to give some context to that number, all-of-last year was 400,000 people but the root cause of this probm is lack of economic opportunity and violence in the northern triangle. that is el sald dor, guatemala, annduras we need to have a marshall plan for that region. we should have a special representative, which is a senit diplomat to work in tha region this is not a problem just for the u.s. and mexico. ir's a problem for the ent western hemisphere and we should be working together to solve that problem >> seth: that all sounds gre t don't you think that's a nonstarter with who's currently in the white house >> i don't know if it's necessarily a nonstarter rythink -- i think secreta pompeo understands those -- those root causes. he can select and appoint a special representative or special envoy, whatever you like to call it again, what i try to do is i try to bring many of my members down to the border to see it,
1:23 am
understand the perspective of federal law enforcement. 'cause the men and wom, in border controle men and women in customs, those are the people that are on the bridge, the folks at i.c.e., they are overworked and this is -- my fear is at someone's gonna die in custody, that something's gonna happen, it's gonna start getting hot in texas. and that's gonna cause tensions to flairbe so we need to oing -- let's be smart about how we attack this problem >> seth: in 2016 you said you uscould not, in good consc vote -- support president trumps you had you will support him in 2020. what has changed for you to go from a position that -- this might shock you - - i agree with to the one you're taking now >> what i've said is i'm still gonna support whoever the reblican nominee is. >> seth: okay. >> and so for me, you know, my goal and what i'm trying to do is make surehat when folks look at me, they're not like, "hey, you're the outlier." right? that the looks like the party that
1:24 am
brought me to it right? i ben eve the future republica party -- it's crazy when you talk to folks, if you're under 40, a lot of people have to whisper, i'm a republicangh >> seth: yeah. >> and that shouldn't be the case right? a lot of people that i knew that were republicans were inspired by ronald reagan or they saw george w. bush with the megaphone here at, you know, the twin towers when they were collapsed. and so, for me i'm tryhag to takemessage to different parts of my state. and that what i've been -- ve been working on >> seth: but -- you can appreciate that like, the whispering is because of the head of the republican pty and the fact that is doesn't seem like there are not many in the republican parties -- you are an outlier, certainly amo elected officials in congress right now who are speaking out against the president. >> the party is larger than this one person right? and -- >> seth: but he -- i mean, sure. >> it's an important person. >> seth: it's not -- >> it's a largvoice. seth: yeah. >> right but there's other people and there was a republican party before and there's gonna be a and so, that's why we to make sure that we're inspiring
1:25 am
people in order to understand, you know, what my flavor is. right? and that flavor is i'm a republican because i believe the way we've always going to solve problems and the way we're gonna solve problems is by empt ering people and powering the government i actually believe that we should - you can clap for that. [ cheers and applause right? >> seth: you got them. >> right look, i believe we shorkd be, you know, wog hard to make sure everybody is prosperous and everyone can move up the economic ladder. and i actually believe the way you achieve peace is by speaking softly and carrying a big stick. and the reality is that it's more than just other republicans that believe tha there are independents there are democrats that believe those things too and are concerned with where things are going in their party, as well. and so, a lot of the focus is on just one person and tweets but it's a much broader rty. and that's what i'm trying to do i represent a 50/5district, 50% republican, 50% democrat it's a 71% latino district and everybody's like, "how'd the black republican represent a right? district?
1:26 am
>> seth: yeah. >> part of that is, guess what show up. right? engage there's a town on the border called eagle pass. the first time i went, i literally -- it was a big -- [ speaking in foreign language ] it's an afternoon party. there's about 400 people there and the ba was part of the city council and state representative everyone was democrat. and they literally stopped playing and people came up to me i told the person -- what they count how many times people asked me this question it was "why are yonshere?" and my ar was, "because i like to drink beer and eat -- too. [ light laughter ] all right? and the send time i showed up, people would shake my hand third time i showed up, people walk by and be like, "i'm a republican." right? [ light laughter fourth time i showed up, they told me their problem. fifth time, i came back and be like, "hey, that problem you told me, i sorted it out." right? and that'sltimately what i try to do. >> seth: now you got to worry about when you go and they're like, "you've got to stop coming here all the time -- [ laughter ] beand drinking all of our ." >> right, exactly. >> seth: "we have you figured out. we see right through you now." >> seth, here is what i've
1:27 am
learned. way more unites us than divides us right? and -- thank you [ applause ] >> seth: i really appreciate and i think that's a n sentiment. and certainly people agree with it it, you know, it is -- it must be strange for you to be in a byrty that is represented somebody who does nothing that is uniting and is a divider in rhetoric and act so just -- i guess -- it must be very hard for you to be in a t party that i believe mos your representatives support, sort of, 100%. anwant to ask -- not to ch the subject real quick, but what for -- for the muellert? step do you think -- do you agree with lindsey graham that something that should be left out or what do you like to hear from robert mueller? >> i'm gonna to burst your bubble real quick. and i'm sorry about this but bob mueller doesn't sound like bobcat goldthwait >> seth: he doesn't. you've met him [ laughter ] >> i've met him. i've met him he doesn't
1:28 am
he has - >> seth: that breaks my heart. i mean, that's the one thing i was holding out for, man an>> i know, but i don't wto be disappointed. >> seth: no, no. i appreciate your honesty. >> i don't want you to be disappointed >> seth: it's nice to have an honest politician. >> yeah, yeah. >> seth: thank you >> look, mueller needs to show uph: >> sm-hmm. >> and let's hear from him right? i've - [ cheers and applause i've supported the mueller investigation. i said, "he should always -- he should be able to turn over every rock. he should be able to pursue every lead let's hear from him. right now, it's a dudea alking about a thinde wrote let's hear from the dude that actually wrote it. >> seth: sure. >> and hear what's going -- and what i would do when i was chairman of a committee, and i knew it was gointo be a little contentious, and someone's was gonna be like, "it's not my fault. 's that guy. let's bring them all up. >> seth: mm-hmm. >> right let's put both of them together and let's have this conversation right? and see where it goes. but also, before mueller sho up, the folks on that committee should go in read the unredacted report >> seth: mm-hmm. r >>ht that unredacted report is available and they should read that [ applause ] and not everybody has who's gonna be -- who's gonna be hearing it >> seth: i agree with you on both counts. i really appreciate you making the time thank you so much for coming
