well, thank you for watching. th late show captioning sponsored by cbs >> in a surprise move, the january 6 house select committee scheduled a new public hearing tuesday with its witness shrouded in secrecy. >> a surprise hearing, in fact, that wasn't on the schedule this time yesterday. >> the house january 6 committee will hold a surprise hearing. ♪ ♪ ♪ >> are you looking to surprise your lady with a gift that shows you still care after all this time? then give her a surprise hearing from the january 6 committee, made available exclusively by tiffany's... father's plot to steal an election. handcrafted by thousands of hours of depositions and the giant cajones of liz cheney, with a special cassidy hutchinson insert. make her remember the first time

( cheers and applause )
( cheers and applause ) >> stephen: there you go. happy tuesday. hello, my friends. thanks, everybody. please have a seat. welcome to "the late show." i am your host, stephen colbert. ladies and gentlemen-- ( cheers and applause ) we are coming to you just hours after the january 6th committee shocked the world with a hearing that can only be described as "coo-coo, awooga, psshhhh, wawawa, hatchi matchi!" and nobody, nobody saw this coming. they were scheduled to be in recess until the week of july 11. they hauled everybody back in from vacation! congressman bennie thompson was still wearing his floaties. ( laughter ) so why the urgency? the committee could not wait to share some hot new deets about
what was going on in the white house on january 6, courtesy of former mark meadows top aide and future oscar-winning role for jennifer lawrence, cassidy hutchinson. now, we've seen hutchinson before in video testimony from last thursday's hearings, where she spilled the tea on the seditionist congressmen who asked for pardons. >> mr. gaetz and mr. brooks, i know both advocated for there to be a blanket pardon for members involved in that meeting. mr. gohmert asked for one as well. mr. perry asked for a pardon, too. mr. biggs did. >> stephen: wait, i thought mr. biggs died on that peloton! somebody tell carrie! these hearings are full of bombshells. now, today's surprise hearing did not disappoint. it was loaded with shocking eyewitness testimony about the behavior on january 6th of former president fraudy kruege ( laughter )
hutchinson made it clear that everyone in the former president's inner circle knew that bad stuff was gonna go down on the 6th. >> i went back up to our office and i found mr. meadows in his office on the couch. he was scrolling through his phone. i remember leaning against the doorway and saying, "i just had an interesting conversation with rudy, mark. it sounds like we're going to go to the capitol." he didn't look up from his phone and said something to the effect of, "there's a lot going on, cass. but i don't know. things might get real, real bad on january 6th." >> stephen: so the president's chief of staff knew there could be terrible consequences and went ahead with it anyway? "huh, what? yeah, i think this rash might be an s.t.d., but i don't know, let's just put on some marvin gaye and just see where the evening takes us." ( laughter ) the president really wanted to accompany his mob to the capitol, but white house lawyer
pat cipollone really did not want that to happen, for a damn good reason. >> i saw mr. cipollone right before i walked out onto west exec that morning. and mr. cipollone said something to the effect of, "please make sure we don't go up to the capitol, cassidy. keep in touch with me. we're going to get charged with every crime imaginable if we make that movement happen." >> stephen: "every crime imaginable." we're talkin' treason, sedition ( applause ) conspiracy... obstructing a federal process, attempted murder, fish fondling, grand theft centaur, assault and peppery, ripping the taf off a mattress tag and rebroadcasting a game without the express written consent of major league quidditch. by the way, we also learned, according to deputy chief of staff tony ornato, that what the last administration kept calling a "peaceful crowd" on
january 6th was in fact armed to the teets. >> i remember tony mentioning knives, guns-- in the form of pistols and rifles-- bear spray, body armor, spears, and flagpoles. tony had relayed to me something to the effect of, "these f'ing people are fastening spears onto the end of flagpoles." >> stephen: they had spears on the end of flagpoles? well, at least those flags will be able to defend themselves when the former president gropes them. ( laughter ) so this mob showed up to his rally ready for violence, but because of the weapons, they were being stopped at the magnetic metal detectors, or "mags," so the crowd wasn't as big as it could be. and here's what hutchinson heard the angry ex-president say about
that. >> i was in the vicinity of a conversation where i overheard the president say something to the effect of, "i don't f'ing care that they have weapons. they are not here to hurt me. take the f'ing mags away. let my people in. they can march to the capitol from here." >> stephen: so, he was cool with his mob being armed because he knew he wasn't the one they wanted to attack. that's like hearing, "hello, 9-1-1, state your emergency. uh-huh. uh-huh. well, all i know is i'm not the one being stabbed. this sounds like a you problem." ( laughter ) we've heard how the former president wanted to go with the marchers along to the capitol, for the attack, presumably to batter his way into the senate chamber with a meatball sub. but hutchinson told us today just how desperate he was to join his mob. after the secret service refused to let him walk to the capitol and escorted him to his car, driven by the head of his security detail, bobby engle, the president of the united states did this: >> the president said something to the effect of, "i am the
f'ing president. take me up to the capitol now". to which bobby responded, "sir, we have to go back to the west wing." the president reached up toward the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. mr. engel grabbed his arm, said, "sir, you need to take your hand off the steering wheel." >> stephen: that is insane. but it is going to make a great season premiere of "kleptocrats in cars seizing power." ( laughter ) ( applause ) and-- ♪ ♪ ♪ ( applause ) true story. and he didn't give up. >> mr. trump then used his free hand to lunge toward bobby engel, and when mr. ornato had recounted the story to me, he had motioned toward his clavicles. >> stephen: he went for the throat! when you get into the secret service, you know you have to take one for the president, but you never expect to take one from the president.
"thank you for your service. let's keep this part secret." the limo wasn't the only place the president got violent. hutchinson talked about the day bill barr went on the record saying there wasn't any fraud in the election. >> i noticed the door was propped open, and the valet was inside the dining room changing the tablecloth off of the dining room table. he motioned for me to come in and then pointed towards the front of the room near the fireplace mantel and the tv, where i first noticed there was ketchup dripping down the wall, and there's a shattered porcelain plate on the floor. the valet had articulated that the president was extremely angry at the attorney general's ap interview and had thrown his lunch against the wall. ( laughter ). >> stephen: i mean, her description is so detailed, i think you could go in and find
where that ketchup stain was. i mean, they should put that on the white house tour, have a little plaque on the wall, "here the 45th president lost his lunch." ( applause ) apparently, this was not an isolated incident. >> was this the only instance that you are aware of where the president threw dishes? ( laughter ) >> it's not. >> stephen: the greatest quote in the history of congressional hearings. evidently, the former president breaks a lot of dishes, which is why his handlers make sure his meals are served only in bucket or edible bowl. ( applause ) we learned this today. and here's more history: >> there were several times throughout my tenure with the chief of staff that i was aware of him either throwing dishes or
flipping the tablecloth, to let all the contents of the table go onto the floor and likely break or go everywhere. >> stephen: okay, that sounds bad, but maybe he just trying to do that magic trick where you grab the tablecloth and yank away democracy. back on ( applause ) going back to january 6, capitol hill, pokey flag, violence, meow, meow, meow-- it's all on tv at this point in her story telling. and hutchinson says that white house lawyer pat cipollone charges down to their office to demand mark meadows tell the president to stop the attack. >> and i remember pat saying to him something to the effect of "the rioters have gotten to the capitol, mark. we need to go down and see the president now." and mark looked up and said, "he doesn't want to do anything, pat." and pat said something to the
effect of-- and very clearly said this to mark-- something to the effect of, "mark, something needs to be done, or people are going to die, and the blood is going to be on your f'ing hands. >> stephen: that is damning testimony. in response, today, mark meadows released this statement: "no comment." ( laughter ) now, compare mark meadows' breathtaking cowardice to that of his assistant testifying today, cassidy hutchinson, age 25. who's testifying bespite multiple threats of violence to tell the american people the truth. lawyer to tell the american people the truth. well, she can add all this to her resume: "crisis management, excellent recall, bigger balls than mark meadows." ( applause ) meadows may not have any balls,
but he's got some nerve. >> ms. hutchinson, did white house chief of staff, mark meadows, ever indicate that he was interested in receiving a presidential pardon related to january 6th? >> mr. meadows did seek that pardon, yes ma'am. >> stephen: the president's own chief of staff wanted a "get out of jail free" card. but he didn't get it, so hopefully soon, he will not pass "go," not collect $200, and go directly to jail. ( cheers and applause ) also-- also-- also, in comparison to ms. hutchinson's courage, the committee played some footage of their interview with disgraced former national security advisor, general michael flynn, who seemed disinclined to be forthcoming. >> general flynn, do you believe the violence on january 6th was justified? >> i said-- i said the fifth. >> do you believe the violence on january 6th was justified morally?
>> take the fifth. >> do you believe the violence on january 6th was justified legally? >> fifth. >> general flynn, do you believe in the peaceful transition of power in the united states of america? >> the fifth. >> stephen: you were a general in the united states army! you swore an oath to uphold the constitution, not deny its bedrock principles. how does michael flynn sing the national anthem? ♪ oh, say can you fifth! fifth-fifth-fifth-fifth fifth-fifth! everybody! ♪ what so proudly we fifthed, by the twilight's fifth-fifth fifth! ♪ who's broad stripes and fifth fifth ♪ o'er the land fifth-fifth fifth ♪

( cheers and applause ). >> louis: that's right. >> stephen: don't know what we're going to talk about. there's not really that much to talk about, going on in washington, d.c. right now. she's a bit of a shrinking violet. she doesn't share her opinions. i hope to get some answers out of there. that's what i hope to be able to do tonight.
folks, speaking of january 6th plotters, this weekend rudy giuliani was assaulted by a grocery store worker on staten island. before i go any further, before i say anything else, let me say that rudy giuliani is fine, other than the fact that he remains rudy giuliani. ( laughter ) and more importantly, "the late show" and "the late show" family of products condemns violence of any kind. you should not go out and lay a finger on the former mayor in any way. first, because it is just wrong. and, second, because you don't want to get any of that weird rudy juice on you. now, at first, we only heard about this from rudy, who told a harrowing tale of a confrontation at a political event for his son, andrew, at a grocery store: >> i come out of the men's room, a group of people are around me, hugging me, kissing me, telling me andrew's great. and all of a sudden, i feel a shot on my back, like somebody shot me. i got hit on the back as if a boulder hit me.
that woman gave a statement to the police that the guy hit me so hard that she herself almost fell from the reverberation of it. >> stephen: ( as rudy ) "it was a combination bullet-boulder earthquake. the only thing this didn't unleash was the dreaded sharknado. and if you believe that, then you also believe people want to hug and kiss me whenever i come out of a men's room." ( laughter ) but now there's video from the store security camera. parents, take your kids out of the room and then follow them out of the room, because this is going to be so violent, your house may suffer structural damage. get to a doorway, or if you have a basement, shelter in place. there's rudy... here comes the thunder.... boom! and that was it. and that was-- is that it? that was it. that was the whole thing. okay.
okay, it doesn't seem like mich, but watch again when you play the video with sound. ( explosion ) ( applause ). >> stephen: scary stuff, scary stuff. after the video evidence came out, the d.a. released the assailant, who also had the charges against him reduced. they've gone from felony assault down to "back tap with intent to 'hey!'" ( laughter ) rudy was furious about that, saying, "what the hell is this d.a. doing letting him out of jail? i didn't fall down. i could have. if i fell down, who knows." i know. you would have cracked your head open, and a bunch of chianti would have come leaking out. and now you've got stains all over your good farting pants. rudy remains undaunted. his son, andrew, and his load-bearing teeth say we don't have to worry about rudy because

( cheers and applause ) thank you. >> stephen: i-- i think that means you should visit more often. >> yeah. >> stephen: it's been a while since we've had you here. nice to see you again. >> yes in fact today is actually-- we just realized-- is the four-year anniversary since i was here the first time, the very first time. >> stephen: oh, wow. >> yeah. >> stephen: oh, wow. >> right after i won my primary. >> stephen: not much has happened in the last four years. >> not much at all. >> stephen: okay, auspicious time for you to be here. we didn't actually know the hearing was going to be today when you originally agreed to come on the show. explosive hearings today. did you have a chance to watch the hearings today. >> yes, yes, i did. >> stephen: what's your immediate-- if you don't mind me phrasing it this way-- what was your immediate takeaway from the emotional testimony today because it was stunning. >> it was just stunning. to understand and see the detail and the depth through which there was also just a
conscientiousness of guilt. they knew that what they were doing was wrong. when at the very end of this hearing, you hear that mark meadows, the chestles t the president himself, asked for a pardon because he knew that he was breaking the law in order to seize power and undermine democracy in the united states of america. it is stunning. it is absolutely stunning. and that the president himself was willing to choke his own secret service. ( laughter ) in order to do so -- >> stephen: do you know the detail about that i like? is that he goes to grab the wheel, and this is how long it's been since he's driven himself anywhere, he thinks you can drive from the back seat. ( laughter ) he forgot about the pedals. >> yes. >> stephen: and all that. >> yes, yes, yes. >> stephen: let's get into that for a second. it's a little back wards here. but we learned last week that many members of the house of representatives from the republican side and some members of the staff asked for pardons.
as somebody who was there on january 6, how-- what is your reaction to finding out that there is this consciousness of guilt? because, legally, if the people may not know, it's not just sort of a term of art to get a pardon. it is an admission of guilt. >> yes, yes, it is. and i think there was also an awareness when all of this was going on, there was a feeling and a great sense that there were people on the inside. and we learned last week that ththere were-- there were one if normore several members of congress who brought in the insurrectionists to essentially case the joint before coming in the next day. and to work with people over the last year, to see them, to have to have sometimes them confront you, knowing that they did what they did has been quite surreal, especially when they're not very intelligent. ( laughter ) ( applause )
>> stephen: thank god! that's the saving grace of their malsis how incompetent they are. >> uh-huh. >> stephen: now, we also learned about-- as you said, there was-- this was premeditated in that it was preconsiderred that this would be a violent event. >> yes. >> stephen: and president did not care, knowing that you could let the people with the weapons through the magnetometers didn't matter to him, because he knows they were not angry with him, they were going to use the weapons against members of congress. specifically, some of them were looking for you that day. >> . . >> now, do you imagine that any of these people who are being named as these conspirators in the white house-- or even within the congress-- do you imagine there will be reasonable consequences for them? do you imagine there is going to be any jail time here? >> i will say, bare minimum, those who specifically sought pardons for themselves should be expel from the united states
house of representatives, without a-- beyond a shadow of a doubt. ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: because, specifically, because in asking-- >> yes, because are you a duly elected official and in seek a pardon, as you mentioned, you are consciously committing-- you are admitting to committing a crime. what that means is that they were willing to commit crimes in order to illegally seize power. and no person of any power and of any seat of any party should be willing to do that in order to undermine our democracy. but that's just the bare minimum. i do believe that many of these individuals need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law in order to establish and to prove to ourselveses and to the world that there is rule of law in the united states of america. ( cheers and applause ). >> stephen: now, representative cheney today, at the end, is kind of like a very interesting little cherry on top of all of this, read into the record some testimony, without
naming names, testimony of witnesses they've already had that said they received pressure from people within the former administration that a certain person was watching their testimony and knew that they were going testimony, and knew that they were, you know, "you're a good guy. i know you're loyal. you'll do the right thing and you'll stand firm, which is witness tampering. >> it is. >> stephen: even an attempt to do that is a federal crime. i only like pointing that out just because it makes me happy to know that someone else might go to jail for their evil deeds. but do ou at all-- does it sting at all to be grateful to liz cheney? >> you know... >> stephen: because it-- it burns a little going down for me. because i am grateful. because this is how politics should be. you can disagree on any kind of policy, but in the end you want there to be a united states. >> yabsolutely, absolutely. ( cheers and applause ).
and i-- agree, and i do believe that what is so important is that we do lift that up, and that this is not happening because an individual is a democrat or an individual is a republican. this is happening because we are u.s. citizens who believe in-- in the integrity of our country and the integrity of our laws. and there are some thungz that are more important than politics, and some things should not be partisan. and protecting our democracy should be something that every single one of us, no mart the part, should be committed to. >> stephen: we have to take a break, but when we come back, i will ask the congresswoman what actions she would like to see congress take in the wake of the spreme court overturning "roe." stick around. ♪ ♪ ♪ ( applause )

that has stood among democratic administrations, republican administrations, but they've tossed it out and are ready to turn the city into a shooting gallery. we haven't talked about that. today we haven't talked about the fact that yesterday they brought prayer back into the schools. the fact that last week they said if a county or city does not mirandize you, you cannot sue them about it. and on friday they overturned both "casey" and "roe v. wade." what is your reaction to what you're hearing from the supreme court? >> well, i think one of the things we're seeing here is the supreme court is actively delegitimizing itself. and in-- what we have-- ( applause ) >> stephen: when you mean delegitimize-- i want to hear the rest of the answer-- but i hear the word "delegitimize" in "casey" they were worried that they would lose legitimacy in the court. what do you mean when you say delegitimize? >> the supreme court has the power. its power is in whether its rulings are heeded and respected
and if so, how much and to what extent. and when we have the framing of know-- the framinghaming of our government, the presidency, the congress-- the president, congress, and the supreme court are supposed to be three coequal branches, coequal, none with supremacy over the other. and when any one of those branches overreaches its authority, it is the responsibility of the other two to check the overreach of that authority. the supreme court has engaged in the overreaching of its authority. ( applause ) in denying the human and civil rights of any pregnant person or person that could become pregnant in the united states of america. they have engaged in overreach, and it is the responsibility of the president and congress to put the supreme court in check because they have delegitimized themselves. ( cheers and applause ).
>> stephen: what actions, you know, do you-- would you like to see from your fellow lawmakers? because the court's response to that might be, alito says we trurn to the elected representatives of the people. he believes that that's where the legitimacy-- at least the issues of "roe," of abortion should be returned to the people. what action would you like to see the congress take? >> well, i think history really informs a lot. and it gives us lessons here. because this is not the first time that this has happened. in the 1800s, the supreme court was taken over by the confederate south and was starting to rule in ways that limited abraham lincoln, for example. in the "dred scott" ruling they ruled black americans are not and never can be full citizens of the united states. and what did abraham lincoln do? he signed the emancipation proclamation. he ignored the gross overreach and abuse of power.
during franklin delano roosevelt's attempt to restore the country, during the great depression, the green new deal-- not the green new deal, the new deal, the new deal. ( laughter ) anyway, with the new deal, what we saw was an overreach from the supreme court attempting to prevent us from passing these laws. and franklin delano roosevelt threatened to expand the court. and in his adoption of that position, despite the fact that congress didn't do it at that time-- although lincoln did-- the fear of the court's power being minimized caused them to back off their overreach and abuse of power. i believe that president biden should entertain expansion of the supreme court. i believe that ( applause ) i believe that he should forcefully come out in ending the filibuster of the united states senate. ( cheers and applause ). i believe that he should call on
congress to repeal the hyde amendment. and i also believe that congress, we, have the-- we have the possibility, when we are strengthened by the repeal of the filibuster or a change to a talking fill burster or standing filibuster, in doing so we can codify "roe" and all the other cases the supreme court can'ted they would threaten. we can codify same-sex marriage, we can codify the right to contraception, we can codify-- we can only do it if we're not fighting with one haned bac let, we just need a fight. we need a fight. and we need to show and demonstrate to the american people that when they vote to give democrats power, we will use it to the fullest extent eeryrsbodynd's applauscie ).
