6:00 pm
nt about lone wolf is interesting. thank you both. that is "all in" for this evening, steve kornacki is in for rachel. >> thanks for joining us for this hour. rachel has the night off and there is big news on the west coast tonight in the state of oregon. something that we have been watching for and something that the oregon press has been waiting for and today it finally happened. governor john kitzhaber announced that he will resign from office. he made no public appearances at all today. his office putting out a written statement and an audio file of the governor reading that statement aloud.
6:01 pm
he goes on to say he is confident that he has not broken any laws or done anything dishonest. the escalateing media frenzy has reached the point of no return. he says he will step down next wednesday morning 10:00 a.m. local time.
6:02 pm
he is 67 years old. he spent what feels like a lifetime in politics in oregon. he was on his way to becoming the second largest serving governor in the history of the united states if he had finished out his current term. that would have been 16 years in office. she a he's a democratic. he was elected for the fourth time in oregon recently. he is nope for his work on health reform. the rollout in oregon of obama care was a disaster. for the past several months kitzhaber has been in trouble in relation to his girlfriend. specifically pay to play plans. if she was paid while in his administration and serving in an
6:03 pm
unofficial capacity as the state's first lady. that lead to a state criminal investigation and a demand from the state's largest newspaper that he resign his job immediately. until this afternoon, he had been fiercely resisting that demand. this is what he had to say on wednesday night. >> have you been considering resigning? >> no i have not. >> has not crossed your mind at all? >> no. >> that was just 48 hours ago when he said that in public. behind the scenes for these last few weeks, a very different story has been playing out. he now joins the liking of other recent governors who have resigned amid recent scandal. also joins the company of governors who resigned for reasons that we still don't fully understand. there are also governors that managed to ride out high profile
6:04 pm
scandals and remain in office. mark sanford was caught cheating on his wife and now she in congress. bob mcdonald apologized forring accepting loans and gifts while in office. when his term ended he was indicted and he has been convicted and sentences. rick perry was also indicted last summer on two controversial felony abuse of power charges. there are democrats who say that perry should not have been charged with any crime. now oregon's constitution does not allow for the impeachment of a governor so kitzhaber could have stuck around to try and ride this storm out. the first big domino was last week with more allegations coming about his girlfriend's role in his administration.
6:05 pm
the state's largest newspaper responding to those revelations by calling on the governor to step down. yesterday, perhaps the fatal blow. his most loyal democratic supporters joining the resignation calls turning on their long-term ally. the state speaker met with him and said it was over and time to go. they left that meeting convinced that he was ready to resign. as soon as that meeting was over it looked like he was making one final play to hang on. >> he met with me in this office on tuesday and led me to believe he was going to resign. he wanted a transition period with the secretary of state. i supported that. i had a statement prepared. it would take care of itself. then i could not tell you a
6:06 pm
bought about it he swore me to secrecy. the next thing i know a bomb shell, what's going on the secretary of state is coming back, and then i'm not going to resign. i just said i can't fix this. i can't make it better. i can't save anybody. now that was yesterday. kitzhaber telling state leaders he was quitting his job and then backtracking from that. kitzhaber, if he had any chance of surviving, this probably ended it. a newspaper reporting that the governor's office just last week tried to have all of his personal e-mails deleted from government servers. that was so shocking to the teches that had to carry out the request, they refused to do it. oregon was gripped all day thursday and this morning until the news breaking that he is
6:07 pm
ready to resign this time for real. when a governor resigns from office, the next in line is the secretary of state. the secretary of state right now in oregon is a democrat named kate brown. she was in washington dc heading up a conference for the national association of secretaries of state. she says while she was at that conference, the governor called her back to oregon telling her it was an emergency. she got on a plane on wednesday. when she got back to oregon and sat down with kitzhaber in his office she says he asked me why i came back early from washington dc. which i found strange. i asked him what he wanted to talk about. the governor told me he was not resigning after which he began talking about transition. this is a bizarre and unprecedented situation. i informed the governor that i am ready and my staff will be ready should he resign. that was kate brown, the secretary of state of oregon. that was her yesterday.
6:08 pm
yesterday when confusion and chaos reigned in oregon state capital. now in less than a week kate will become the 38th governor of oregon. he is now reportedly the subject of an ongoing fbi probe as well as a probe by the state attorney general. in the past hour or so, we're getting reports of federal criminal subpoenas delivered after the governor resigned today. meanwhile, the governor to be kate brown, is getting ready for her new job. she is an interesting figure in her own right. she served six years as the top election official and she served in the oregon legislature. she want today remove barriers
6:09 pm
to voter registration. she also liked yoga. it remains to be seen what kind of a governor she will be. today she made this brief statement to reporters. >> this is truly a sad day for the state of oregon but i have confidence that legislatures will come together to move oregon forward. i know you all have a lot of questions, and i would like to answer those questions as soon as possible. as you can imagine, between now and wednesday, we have a lot of work to be done and that is what i will go back and do thank you. >> so now, oregon is going to get a new governor. the old one is stepping down. the new one is takes his place. the state is also becomes a national test case. we have seen plenty of scandals take down plenty of governors before. have we ever seen one like this. now we have dr. jim moore.
6:10 pm
dr. moore, thank you for joining us. let me just start with this. we played that audio file from the governor the soon to be exgovernor that was released today, and he said that he has been charged, tried, convicted and sentenced by the media. people are still trying to figure this out. does the governor have a point there? is there a chance that he doesn't fully understand what he is being accused of? >> yes, it is partly his fought. the media for the past four months, the newspapers have done a strong job uncovering things. they found things that don't look right, but they have not looked to see if there is an alternative story that makes sense underneath. the governor in that entire time, in his campaign and when he became governor again, he has reed to give a narrative that
6:11 pm
makes any sense out of that. it has been a rush to judgment, but the thing is he didn't act on the other side. he didn't say no this is what's going on so we were left with a silence from his side. >> and it's so interesting because kitzhaber, in his fourth term he has been around the block when you're talking about politics, can you tell us about his girlfriend? she is 20 years younger than him within obviously in the middle of this. they're rip and history together. there was controversy in the campaign that she was in a green card for cash scheme. >> she came into his life in 2002. she was a candidate for a state legislative position. that is the year he left the governorship. he was working with candidates and they met. they have been an item now for ten years.
6:12 pm
during that time she runs her own business. she is basically an energy and environmental consultant and she had clients and things like that. but as the governor looked like he would run for a third term after two terms of someone else she started getting different contracts and when she became the first lady as he called her, the payment for her contracts went up. so that is what raised red flags flags. he was known as a really recollusive guy. he did not go out and campaign for democrats running for the legislature. third term, eight years later with silvia hayes at his size. he want today talk to people. he wanted to work with the media on things. he had big ideas, and he was a whole different person. >> when did this -- and it happened so quickly. in england there was something
6:13 pm
ununusual going on last fall when was the big break in this thing? at what point in the last few weeks and months did you say this guy is in trouble here? >> the reason the oregonian ran the story was there was a story that came out showing that silvia hayes got a job because lobbiests that worked with the governor on things got her that job. those lobbiests were then hired by the governor. the job she was doing is stuff -- she was advising the governor on what he ought to do. she was being paid to lobby and also being paid and being the first lady to try to decide what the policies were. she was working both sides of the door. the oregonian said that was a step too far. there could have been excuses for that but deafenning ingdeafening
6:14 pm
silence from the governor's side. >> and we have word of the subpoena the possibility of this leading to jail time for the governor, is that what people are talking about? >> they are, but when i looked at it i looked at the law very closely. i learned about this set of laws in the last ten days. it is hard to see what he has done. oregon like other states when you get into ethics things the laws are left with gray areas. the legislature passes them and they can't anticipate what will come up as they're looking at things down the road. there is lots of grey area. the governor could be liable for things, but it looks more like silvia hayes could be more in trouble. it looks like she did not claim all of her income on her income tacks. i don't know about the fb ierkt, but the irs is particularly
6:15 pm
interested in that. >> dr. jim moore, appreciate your time tonight. >> you're welcome. >> lots ahead in the show tonight, including a update on that triple thursday in chapel hill, north carolina. one of the most astonishing newspaper corrections i think we have ever seen is coming up. ♪♪ expected wait time: 55 minutes. your call is important to us. thank you for your patience. waiter! vo: in the nation, we know how it feels when you aren't treated like a priority. we do things differently. we'll take care of it. vo: we put members first... join the nation. thank you. ♪ nationwide is on your side ♪ ♪ okay, you ready to go? i gotta go dad! okay! let's go go, go, go... woah! go right, go left, go left stop! now go...

for the ones you love (dog barks) this valentine's day. (dog barks) verizon. we belong here. we have blended our blood with this soil. we raised our children to honor any country they live in and to be loyal to their community. president obama by acknowledging our pain and calling us assures us for what he stood and what
6:20 pm
this country stands for. and this is really an honor to show our families where we came from. and the world, that we were not wrong when we came here and believed in this country. >> dr. muhammad ab. for the first time today president obama spoke out about those killings saying no one in the united states of america should ever be targeted because of who they are, what they look like, or how they worship. the president's words acknowledging the question hanging over this case. all of these three victims, were they targeted because they were muslims? he told mourners this has hate crime written all over it. and today, muslim leaders had a prayer meeting at the u.s. capital and worked at halls
6:21 pm
pushing for a hate crimes investigation. they have opened a preliminary inquiry that eric hold every says will determine if any hate crime laws are broken. we learned more about the man charged with these murders. police seized a dozen guns from his apartment. including the military style ar-15. they also found cases of ammunition ammunition. he had an additional pistol with him when he turned himself in. local authorities have so far said that evidence points to a long-running parking dispute between hicks and the victims. they are angry and abusive towards everyone. hick's wife mental health problems. a recording emerged of one of the victims on tuesday.
6:22 pm
she spoke to the radio oral history project story core in durham last summer. here she is with her former elementary school teacher. . joining us now is a guest from public radio and it was she that posted that interview. we have parallel investigations going on. the local authorities, the fbi is looking into this.
6:23 pm
it is unusual, i think in any case to have both of them looking into it at the same time, is there a sense here of any time table for when one of these will decide if this was a hate crime. >> i have not heard a timetable yet. the chapel hill police have been looking into this since it occurred on tuesday night and we heard from the family saying more needs to be done and that the fbi is looking into this more. when the chapel hill political looked into it they say it was over a parking dispute which was family came out and immediately said this is insulting, outrageous, are and insensitive for you to say it is over a parking dispute. and now, again, the fbi is stepping in but we do not have any really signal on when that will end or how long that will
6:24 pm
last. >> i'm curious about that. the family made very strong statements on this. i think people look at it on face value and are very suspicious of what led to this and the idea of a parking dispute strikes people as suspicious. there are facebook postings from this man where he seems to bash all religion completely. are there other specific and concrete reasons? >> i talked with one of the friends of yusor abu-salha. i talked with one of her friends that said you know i have no doubt in my mind this is a hate crime. i remember when she texted me after she had some friends over and her neighbor came by and said your friends are being disruptive and disrespectful. and he held his hand over his
6:25 pm
pocket where there was a gun. and i heard from other people that yusor said that she felt like craig hicks hearing aidated her. if she said he hated us i believe that. we heard this morning on "morning joe," susan said that it was outrageous for them to call it to say this was overa parking dispute, and she said that her brother had made a map of the different parking spots and had highlighted which ones his friends could not park in because the neighbor had approached him and his wife in the past saying that he was upset over this. >> do you have a sense, can you tell us in the community there how people are thinking about this? the idea of the parking dispute versus the idea of this being something of a lot more value.
6:26 pm
do you have a sense in the community of how people are thinking about that? >> yeah so i went to a vigil wednesday night, the day after they had been murdered. they were all taking time to remember them. and they were saying that i think from the muslim community, at least, and from different communities, it is a time for them to reflect on how this impacts them. i know i talked with some muslims who i think really validated how some of their fears they feel about being muslim and how people perceive them, and how they're trying to reflect on that right now. i know at one point one of the friends of yusor abu-salha said that black lives matter, muslim lives matter all lives matter.
6:27 pm
so there is definitely a conversation happening right now about that. lots of people in the community are just outraged and confused i think. >> thank you for taking the time tonight. >> thank you for having me. all right, still ahead tonight when the vice president of the united states travels the country, it is not necessarily national news but when this vice president travels the country and goes to iowa it raises alarm bells about 2016. you owned your car for four years. you named it brad. you loved brad. and then you totaled him. you two had been through everything together. two boyfriends. three jobs. you're like "nothing can replace brad!" then liberty mutual calls. and you

. maybe you heard news this week about a peace deal in ukraine. what you're about to see is not that. we spent a lot of time trying to figure out why these two members of the you trainian parliament were punching each other in the face. it turns out it was a political disagreement but not the one that you're seeing headlines about between the ukraine and russia. that one may be on the way toward getting resolved. after months of hard core fighting and the separatists trying to take over ukraine. leaders met and came to an agreement to stop the turmoil at at one point, vladimir putin

6:36 pm
you see people waving at you. if you find yourself in that situation, you're driving past a honk and wave rally being organized by a group called run warn run. they want elizabeth warren to through her hat in the ring to run for the democratic nomination in 2016. it was created by the group they have opened to offices in iowa. warren has said publicly she is not running and she won't run. she would hardly be the first politician to go back on a promise like that. tomorrow they will be out on that bridge pleading their case to anyone that happens to drive by. the high temperature in democrat tomorrow 18 degrees. speaking of iowa joe biden just left that state. he was there all day yesterday in a trip that looked very
6:37 pm
campaignish. giving a speech and answering questions from the audience. he also add a photo op at a local restaurant. his advice don't distance yourself from president obama, run on his record. stand for what we have done. that is what joe biden was telling the crowd in iowa. on the republican side the presidential race has been alive and well in iowa for months now. south carolina senator lindsey graham says he may wage a very long shot campaign for the g.o.p. nomination is heading to iowa next week. the candidates officially in the race for months governor chris christie was also in iowa this month. he said his bluntness will translate to those in iowa and across the country. the political director of the iowa republican party said christie seemed a little flat during his trip.
6:38 pm
many future contestants have been in and out of iowa. also in iowa in the last week a seemingly mundane moment that would have huge consequences unfolded on television in the interview with one of those republican candidates. rand paul is pretty openly running for president, and during the interview, there was one very telling exchange. watch it. you have i would think, a unique perspective going into these caucuses because you got to watch your dad go through them. >> i got to speak in them and my kids got to -- >> it is like free training right? >> we're trying to copy you. in kentucky we may have a presidential caucus this year. i don't know if we will copy iowa, but we're looking to see which one works best. >> rand paul is saying that
6:39 pm
kentucky may end up having a presidential caucus as opposed today a primary in 2016. why is that a big deal? it could potentially save rand paul from having to make a wrenching choice for him between keeping his senate seat or getting to run for president next year. all because current kentucky state law bars a candidate from appears twice on the same ballot in an election. you can't run for two offices at the same time. you have to pick one of them. his senate seat is up in 2016. the deadline to file as a candidate is in janzuary. at the same time it is just getting under way. he can't put his name on the ballot for senate if it is also on the ballot for president. paul had been hoping to get that law changed, but the democrats
6:40 pm
that control the kentucky state house of representatives made it clear they're not doing that. in caucuses there are no balloting. they're public meetings not secret ballot elections. the law in kentucky says you can't have your name on the bat lot for two officers. if kentucky's republican party decided to stop holding a primary and instead to hold caucuses, then paul's dilemma would be solved. he can still put his name on ballot for senate. this week, the lexington herald leader says rand paul kentucky gop asked for help. so that explains why rand paul was excitedly telling that
6:41 pm
interviewer they might have state caucuses of their own. it is a technical issue, but it is also a huge moment and a huge decision for rand paul's presidential hopes. also a reminder that even though the election is still a long way away, big things are happening right now that will determine who is still standing and who isn't a year from now. joining us now is robert costa, a national political reporter for the washington post. thank you for taking a few minutes tonight. let's start with this rand paul issue here in kentucky. is there a sense of looking inside kentucky that he is going to get his way on this? that the republicans will cooperate. give him the caucuses and free him from that decision? >> i have spoken with several rand paul allies and this is a majority state that mitch mcconnell won last year they have trended toward rand paul politically. you have thomas massey. i think there is an appetite
6:42 pm
among his base to get this done and they also know that the paul family traditionally have done well in these caucus formats and they were a test of organizational strength. >> what happens if he doesn't get his way? if the current law stays in place, and he has to make that decision. i think the filing deadline for the senate in kentucky next year is the end of january. only a few states will have voted. so if rand paul is at all viable at that point that is a brutal decision for him to have to make. >> very difficult. i think at this point i was just with rand paul for two-and-a-half days in iowa. you get the sense that he wants to run for president. that is his priority. his father built a base for decades because he had that perch in the house. so he sees the value in his seat and he doesn't want to just give it up. >> things happening right now that have huge consequences later, here is a perfect example
6:43 pm
about jeb bush and this massive behind the scenes fund raidraising push that he is trying to orchestrate. reporting that he could be leaving his opponents in the dust for the money that they are bringing in. could you shed light on the effect if that could have. >> a major battle for the republican nomination that could kick off. was a an internal battle for the center right space between christie bush marco rubio, and bush knows because he has not been on a ballot in a decade he needs to make moves financially. he had 100,000 ticket fundraiser in new york. he wants to raise close to $100 million and make rivals wonder if they're going to run. >> i wonder about the public end of it. when his brother was running for
6:44 pm
president, he raids ridiculous money that shocked everybody. the other thing that george w. had was he brought out a lot of major endorsements. big state governors, he lined up a lot of public support. i'm looking at today's republican party, jeb bush all of the suspicion among the base and saying are there big named republicans that will come out in the near future and say jeb bush is my guy? >> no, the field is too big. you get the sense that a lot of republicans in office and the offices, they don't want to come out endorse bush. those donors that were ambassadors, they're with jeb right now, but there is not a mass bush wave like there was in 1999. >> we said in the introe that chris christie has been to iowa a few times now. he spoke at that steve king event. he is back there in the past week. the reviews have not been that
6:45 pm
encouraging so far. how is he being received? >> i was five feet away from him. fascinating to watch. this is a guy who made his name in early 2010 yelling at public school teachers and the videos going viral. the christie that i saw on monday night quiet, somber going against his usual persona. he was pretty flat. not a lot of applause lines. people came in part to be entertained and they weren't. >> that reminds me of rudy giuliani when he ran for president. even was so scared of mean giuliani having a outburst and they took the personality out and he was that boring candidate. >> it's the same people running the campaign. the same chief strategist, and
6:46 pm
maria, the spokesman for chris christie was also for rudy giuliani. christie feels like she in a better position. he has more financial context. still when it comes to his personality because of the bridge episode, he is playing himself down. >> chris christie without that personality for better or worse. appreciate your time tonight. still ahead tonight -- i believe that diplomacy should be the corner stone of any foreign policy. >> and i can see russia from my house. >> 40 years of american politics all through the eyes of "saturday night live." at kraft we start with eggs

a couple of months ago john oliver used his new hbo show to perform a public service. the supreme court is arguably one of the most important
6:51 pm
institutions in america, but news coverage of the court can be tough, because there are no cameras allowed inside. so john oliver did this. re-enactments with dogs. here you see supreme court justice scalia and justice samuel alito. the newest member justice kagan. folks at hbo gave out more than ten minutes of this kind of footage on youtube. the idea is you can use it to play along with the audio that the supreme court releases when they're holding oral arguments. to show you how this works, this is justice ginsburg for the land mark marriage equality case. >> it's as justice kennedy said it affects every area of life. so you are really diminishing what the state has said is marriage. there's two kinds of marriage
6:52 pm
