12:42 am
[ laughterik it'she's been waiting two years for someone to ask him that question. and do you have the handcuffs picked out yes. [ laughter ] over the course of seven hours, mueller laid out details of a criminal attempt to interfere in a presidential election. a campaign that openly welcomed and encouraged that interference in a series of lies and potential attempts to obstruct justice by the president and his aides. in normal timeed that would be incrly damning and yet we're all so numb to everything, people are acting like because mueller didn't come out and say the words "trump is guilty," it wasn't a big deal. what were you expecting? did you think mueller was going smash through the wall in a monster truck called "the detrumpulator. [ laughter ] mueller's report, in itself,s already damning. we just got to see him explain it on national tv. yes, he occasionally stumbled or had to consult the report, but it's over 400 pages with footnotes and citations. if you asked me under oath about something i said in "a closer look" yesterday, i'd have to consult the script, too. let's see, i'd like to refer you to appendix c, subsection 43b
12:43 am
where in "a closer look" we play the clip of elizabeth warren saying the words - >> crazy [bleep] [ cheers and applause >> seth: also, it's pretty richt when people who complain that mueller stumbled overag details in a 400report are the same people who are totally fine with mr. details over here. >> this will be plan where you can choose your doctor this will be plan where you can choose your plan, and you know what the plan is, is is the plan [ laughter ] >> seth: i mean, it's very easy not to stumble when you're just using the same five word overand over again [ laughter ] but give him something trickier, like the word lawmakers and en see what happens >> he has worked in both houses of congress, advising law-markers. [ laughter ] >> seth: the law-marker, of course being the sharpie that every
12:44 am
judge uses to write out their legal decision [ cheers and applause thank you, law-marker. of course, muell's very straightforward claim that he could not exonerate the president comes after months after trump claiming unequivocally that the mueller report completely and totally exonerated him >> there was no collusion with russia, there was no obstruction and none whatsoever, and it was a complete and total exoneration. >> no collusion, no obstruction, complete and total exoneration, keep america great >> total exoneration, complete vindication. >> seth: hey, you know, in this case, you got to believe trump because he definitely read the report, right? >> i h reportread the mueller [ light laughter ] i haven't seen the mueller report as far as i'm concerned i don't care about the mueller report.
12:45 am
>> seth: i mean, i'm not surprised he didn't read it but it's jarring when he just comes out and admits it.ik he's la guy at a book club whose had a few glasses of wine, going, i guess if i'm being my totally honest, avorite part of "50 shades of grey" was the cover because i did not read it. [ laughter and alause and also, we are out of pinot. [ laughter ] by the way - so for four months tmp has been saying the report completely and totally exonerated him how does he feel now that mueller said explicitly, on national television, that he did not exonerate trump? >> there is no such a thing. the didn't have the right exonerate. you know, it's very interesting. people mention exoneration that was something where he totallfolded because he never had the right to exonerate >> seth: donald trump has a tellev when he goes, you know, it's very interesting, he's about to lay out some five star bull [bleep]. [ laughter ]
12:46 am
so mueller made clear that he could not exonerate trump because that was basically his only option.ul mueller co't just straight up indict trump because of justice department guidelines that say you can't indict a sitting president. instead, he basically had to say, we can't exonerate the president, now it's up to congress but then republicans weirdly trthd to claim that mueller didn't have the power to claim someone was either exonerated or not exonerated one republican congressman even made a big show at that point using props but mueller wasn't having it. >> mr. mueller, does the attorney general have the power or authority to exonerate? p and what i'mting up here is united states code this is where the attorney general gets his power and the constitution and thennotated cases of these, which we've searched we even went to your law school because i went to case western but i thought maybe your law school teaches it differently. we got the criminal law textbook from your law school mr. mueller, nowhere in these, because had them scanned, is there a process or description on exonerate there's no office of exoneration at the attorney general's office there's no certificate at the
12:47 am
bottom of his deskle mr. muel would you agree with me that the attorney general does not have the power to exonerate >> i'm going to pass on that >> seth: oh. it's such a bummer when you bust out all your books and the other guy doesn't care [ laughter and applause i feel so bad for the staff that had to get all this stuff. i feel l work out the way you think it will oh, trust me, when he sees the books, his head will explode i will be like, do you remember this one from ur law school! of course, no matter what mueller said, nothing was going to stop trump from declarings victory, which iat he did on his way to an event last night in west virginia, when he once again stopped by reporters for his usual chopper adjacent q and yell >> the was no defense of what robert mueller was trying to defend, in all fairness to robert mueller whether his performance was a
12:48 am
bad one or good one. i think everybody understands that i think everybody understands what's going on. this has been a very bad thing for our country. and despite everything we've been through, it's been an incredible 2 1/2 years for our country. the administration, our esident, me. >> seth: oh, you you're the president well -- that explains a lot. [ light laughter ] later, trump was asked about mueller's assertion that trump aides had lied during the investigation and trump both denied that mueller had said that and also claimed the reporter herself was lying by asking the question. >> reporter: what do you say at that robert mueller said that you're lying >> let me just tell you something. i know, you always have a question >> reporter: lying bhowhite e aides -- >> you mean my white house aides lie? what about his aides what about mueller's aides >> reporter: he said you are generally untruthful what do you say to that? he's accusing u of -
12:49 am
>> he didn't say that at all you're untruthful when you ask -- you are untruthful, when you ask that question. when you ask that question, you're untruthful. you know who else is untruthful? you know wholse is untruthful? his aides. >> seth: why does anyone even ask him questions anymore? [ laughter ] it's like continuing to pua dollar bills in kebox that only plays "achy breaky heart" no matter what buttons you ess. also, can we go back to this >> reporter: what do you say that robert mueller said that you're lying -- >> let me just tell you something. you always have a question >> seth: yeah. she always has a question. she's a reporter [ laughter ] whenhe mailman shows up at your door, do you say, oh, let me guess, an envelope? [ laughter ] would a pizza kill you, mailman? [ applause ] mueller was also asked yesterday about trump's various attacks on his investigation. and his answers were very clear.
12:50 am
>> when donald trump called your investigation a witch hunt, that was also false, was it not >> i'd like to think so, yes >> well, your investigation is not a witch hunt, is it? >> it was not a witch hunt >> when the president said the russian interference was, hoax, that was falsn't it? >> true. >> seth: now, compare that to p how trumacted just a few hours later. >> there was no defense to this ridiculous hoax, this witch hunt, that's been going on for a long time. and everybody knew it was a hoax, wikileaks is a hoax just like everything elseal and of those problems having to do with crime were the biggest hoax of all. it was a witch hunt, a total witch hunt we did nothing wrong the answer is very simple. nothing was done wrong this was all a big hoax. >> seth: okay, i know inu watched the hear but did you listen or did your aides secretly dub over mueller's lines with sean hannity saying nice things about you? >> the witch hunt is officially over the mueller report is out and the presidenof the
12:51 am
united states has been totally [ light laughter ]dicated. >> seth: the president and his allies have immediately startedn lyabout yesterday's hearings because those hearings laid out in clear and unequivocal terms the story of what's happened and that story is incredibly damning. at this point, it's up to congress to do something about it bythey could either stand nd do nothing or they can impeach >> our preside, me >> seth: this has been "a closer look." ♪ [ cheers and applause we'll be right back with michael moore, everybody [ cheers and applause ♪ se announcer: for more of 's closer looks, be sure to subscribe to "late night" on youtube.

1:24 am
have had hands in creating but to watch not just the popularity of it, but just the impact socially having a character like that on there >> really, it's it's what -- it's evhing i've ever wanted out of the entire experience of telling stories.nt you wao tell stories so people can communicate and kind of understand each other and the whole just trying to like expand the idea of what a hero is and what it can be and anyone can wear the suitd an did it in comics, and then, great filmmakers came and grabbed it and did it better than us.r and achieved a higheal, but still stayed within what we were trying to achieve. t and now, i getsit back and everyone watches on netflix and tweets lovely things at us all day. >> seth: that's wonderful. >> it's like hug that never ops.

and speak to that, and the similarities and why it's important for you to keep writing characters like this >> well, david walker and jamal campbell and i creed naomi for d.c. comics. the idea to bring a new character into d.c. and just - she has brand new origin, not connected to anything with batman or any legacy character, but she's an adopted child in the pacific northwest and she feels a connection to superman because he's also the most famous orphan. >> seth: yeah. >> and that connection leads her on a journey that she actually discovers her super power and o her surprisinggin that actually is going to bring a lot of new stuff to the d.c. universe but what i discovered was how hungry some of the audience is for just new characters to come into this existing universe. like, it's superman and batman, but from a new perspective and that has been a real gift, like, people really have been wa and generous about naomi's appearance >> seth: and this is a big deal for people like me who are in
