1:00 am
deposition has come out. and shown that they were telling the truth. >> all right. thank you very much. thank you. good evening. and thanks to you at home for joining us. happy wednesday. happy birthday to the u.s. secret service. secret service turns one of those really good big round numbers today. today the secret service turns 150 years old. apparently to recognize the secret service on the 150th anniversary of its founding, today all the people alive in the united states who used to be president before but who aren't anymore, of whom there are four, those four former living presidents all reportedly recorded videos. videos of thanks and congratulations for the men and women of the secret service on this big anniversary of the founding of their agency.
1:01 am
now, that said, i'm not allowed to show you any of those videos that the former presidents made for the secret service because it is a service that is secret. so we're told that those videos happened on the occasion of this birthday. you about i i can't actually prove it. on the occasion of this birthday, i do have a present for the agency though. which is this. this heroic russian hacker perp walk. the man in the purple v-neck sweater. his name is vladimir. he was expedited to face trial in u.s. federal court this past february. the way they got the hacker vladimir was a big straulg investigation led by the u.s. secret service. we think of the secret service as having the job of protecting the president of the united states in his or her family. the origin of the agency actually gives them a lead role on a lot of different types of financial crime. the secret service, for example,
1:02 am
that's in charge of busting counterfeiters. they like to brag when they were founded as an agency 150 years ago, fully one-third of the currency being used in the united states was counterfeit. but they put a stop to that. the secret service used to be housed administratively inside the treasury department until homeland security was formed. so yes, they frequent president. that's what we think of their most important job as. but secret service also goes after large scale financial crimes. the way they got vladimir drinkman for a large scale crime, the way they got him caught in their snare is because of a hack of one of the country's main stock exchanges. which was first exposed in 2011 by the "wall street journal." this was the headline. hackers penetrate nasdaq computers.
1:03 am
this was a blaring news story. both as a financial story and as a crime story. broken by the "wall street journal" at midnight. 12:01 a.m. one night in february, 2011. quote. hackers have repeatedly penetrated the computer network of the company that runs the nasdaq stock market during the past year. the nasdaq situations has set up alarms because of the political role which officials put right one power company and air traffic control operations as all part of the nation's basic infrastructure. a probe into the matter was nerve '80 by the secret service and now includes the fbi. so the stock exchange. that particular stock exchange. nasdaq, really had been hacked extensively. by the time the "wall street journal" broke the story in february 2011, that hack had been going on for a very long time. they chose not to affect trading. although it seem clear they penetrated the stock markets so effectively, maybe they could have disrupt trading if they want to. one of the things that prosecutors listed was an
1:04 am
instant message sent between two of the hackers while they were in the middle of breaking into the nasdaq computer system. they said nasdaq is owned. in fact, these hackers, by the time they finally brought them in, including our friends vladimir drinkman, they ended up getting charge for a huge range of hacking related financial crimes. he was charged for not only hacking nasdaq. he was accused of hacking into the jet blue and 7-eleven. perhaps he had the munchies. he was charged with hacking 160 million credit cards. when they announced the indictment against vladimir drinkman and four other russian and ukrainian hackers, they announced i as the largest hack ever announced.
1:05 am
that was nasdaq. nasdaq is the stock exchange that bills itself as the home for tech company. that's sort of what they specialize in. that's a tech focused stock exchange. nasdaq has been particularly embarrassed over and over and over again through the years. supposedly focused on tech issues. nasdaq has had a lot of technical failures on its own. some of them happening at the most outrageously and convenient time. wlb the company facebook launched its ipo, it was thought that might be one of the biggest ipos ever. first day trading on facebook was i'med like nothing you could ever possibly believe. it turned out the first day was a little soft. a little slow. unexpectedly sluggish which was later revealed to be because
1:06 am
nasdaq blew it. technical difficulties on the day of the facebook launch. oof! in earlier times, in simpler times, like say in 1987, nasdaq was once laid low by a four-legged technical glitch known as squirrel. it was only a few weeks after the black friday crash in 1987 are, everybody was pretty freaked out from black friday. a squirrel. not this exact squirrel, a skirl bit the wrong power cord somewhere in connecticut and it completely shut down nasdaq for more than 80 minutes. as "the new york times" tactfully noted, in addition to the 20 million shares that were prevented from being traded, one specific squirrel lost its life. then another squirrel. be another squirrel ate a delicious power line. nasdaq thought they had a back-up but it didn't work in 1994. again, nasdaq shut down. this time for 34 minutes because of squirrel number two. and you know, technical problems do happen. styles it's squirrel. sometimes it's power outages. about a month after the indictment of the russian
1:07 am
hackers who had hacked nasdaq, in august 2013 is when they were indicted. in august 2013 nasdaq shut down for three hours in august 2013 because of something they called connectivity issues. i don't know what that means but they said connectivity issues. and it is not just nasdaq. in 2005 the new york stock exchanges blamed systems communications problems for a four-minute outage. in 1998 it was a computer switch malfunction they blame. in 2009, they close think 16 minutes early. glitches happen. and the markets feed on fear like donald trump feeds on your outrage. so every time there's something that causes fear and insecurity, every time there's a glitch that shuts something down, even when we're all assured it is just a glix, it does cause a certain
1:08 am
degree of panic. or consternation. but today's glitch was a really, really big glitch. we don't know exactly what it was. but we know that in market terms, it took them forever to resolve and it to reopen trading. trading shut down on market exchange about 11:30 this morning. they didn't start it up again for another three and a half hours. until after 3:00 water temperature eastern. and of all the times it has been closed for a it peer glitch or a technical glitch. some freaking suicidal squirrel making the ultimate sacrifice. out of all the times and all the ways that a technical failure has shut down in the past, it does happen. no technical failure has ever taken down the stock exchange
1:09 am
for as long as it did today. the previous one was less than 90 minutes in 2001. the stock exchange that day said they had a computer systems connectivity problem. everybody lost their minds because that glitch took so long to resolve. almost an hour and a half. today it was more like three and a half hours. what happened? so the length of the shutdown is part of the reason people freaked out today. another reason people freaked out today is because of this guy in the purple sweater. in february 2011 when his hack was first exposed. when the "wall street journal" broke that story, it was the journal that first broke that story. then it was "the new york times" that broke the deal that day. the hack did not happen in 2011.
1:10 am
>> the intrusion occurred late last year. late last year. but nasdaq said it had delayed notifying customers at the request of the justice department. so secret service, fbi, justice department. they knew that the system had been hacked. they were actively investigating who had hacked it and why they hacked it and what damage happened. they knew it happened and they told that stock exchange, you cannot admit this publicly. you cannot admit this is what actually happened. yes, they had been hacked. they knew it. they couldn't say the publicly. so today following mysterious ground stops at united airlines, all planes had to be kept on the ground for an hour because of a technical glix. with & the home page, a minor glitch.
1:11 am
in the midst of those other things happening, the shutdown at the new york stock exchange assures everybody, yes, this is a big deal yes. the entire new york stock exchange is being shut down. it is just nothing to worry about. we're experiencing a technical issue that we're working to resolve as quickly as possible. we chose to suspends training to avoid problems. did we mention this is a technical issue? on the one hand, in truth, it is not at all weird that the new york stock exchange would have a technical issue. even one that shuts the whole thing down. that stock exchange and lots of other squirrel issues. they've had them over the years.
1:12 am
they haven't had ones that took quite this long to resolve. not quite this big but there was a long history of technical issues. if this was not just a failure but an attack work they tell us in or do we have to wait for the indictment? i mean, the government, the stock exchange, law enforcement, were all very emphatic. this was a glitch. not an attack from an external source. in part because of all the other technical failures that happened at the same time, for a whileett. it felt like an attack. maybe that is our psychology. it is hard to imagine when something like the new york stock exchanges goes away for three and a half hours without an explanation, it may be that it is more comforting to think of it as an attack instead of to think of it as us just being
1:13 am
fragile. our critical infrastructure being that squirrel. joining us now, kelly evans. >> amazing. what a day it was. no squirrels in sight. to start with what you just. the extent to which, it barely caused a relationshiple in the financial system which tells to you some extent the new york stock exchange is a pebble now. it has 50% of the volume of equities traded every day. it once had 85%. the outages that you mentioned. there have been 15 when that first started happening. it is not that unusual. they were much worse in the past. when any time anybody was trading, it was going through the new york stock exchange. there are upwards, between
1:14 am
public and private exchange, lit pools, dark pools. we've heard of this especially with michael lewis's book, more than 50 places where stocks trade today and that's what happened during the three and a half hours. >> just because of the diversification. while alarming. there are other places for trading to happen. >> there are the entire time. if you just look at the ticker for the dow jones industrial average. the way most of us gain what happened every day. it was part of the down side. psychology was already down for the other places. the regulators have basically halted 70%. volume simply because there's been a sell-off without any information. a the love investors had just gotten into that. the issue in greece. does it stay or go? there are plenty of reasons people were nervous heading into the trading session today. when the market really started to take another leg lower and it was open the whole time. it was. in key time right before 3:00
1:15 am
p.m. eastern where the new york stock exchange does become important. critical even more important than at other times of the day. at the end of the day, a lot of mutual funds to have marshall their pricing to the close and they use the new york stock exchange to do that. could they get it back up and time. >> so we were hearing like they might open at 2:45. 3:00, pushed past 3:00. as it gets closer to 4:00, the real potential impact starts to loom larger and larger and larger. you broadcast from the floor of the stock exchange. can you tell us what happens at the stock exchange? it sort of shows the way most of the time, there are all these panels and you can see them while you're watching. they're all lit up. they have the trades and the volume and the bids. those basically had the name of
1:16 am
the company at each post. there are several posts and each post is responsible. the company names were up there but it was frozen in black and white. there was no sound going on. you were in the middle of the stock exchange which i'll believe it has gotten quieter over the years and it was as silent as it gets during opening hour. >> do you expect tomorrow will be unpredictable? >> tomorrow will be more tough for the new york stock and challenge than generally. what it did, this morning there was a lot of concern that there was a targeting of the u.s. financial system or some sort of hacking attack taking down both our air infrastructure and the financial infrastructure. the journal still not explaining what happened. now the attention come on the new york stock exchange which as one trainer put it me, they saw, they have to make sure as the president told us today, it doesn't happen again.
1:17 am
>> when you're talking about a literal physical market, confidence in the market, and the structures, it is calibration and all of those things. that's everything. the whole reason people have to go there. especially if they have other places. >> kelly evans, thank you for helping me understand this. >> i'm sorry i yelled squirrel a lot in front of you. lots more ahead clawing remarkable day of debate and passion in the south carolina story that we have been covering. the debate around the st toothpaste is superior in five areas. great checkup.
1:18 am
get a pizza and pepsi, and you could win concert cash. great idea. you got it from the jacket? yeah do you like it? i do. order any large 2-topping pizza and 2-liter pepsi online for $12. you could win pizza, pepsi or live nation concert cash and more.
1:19 am
one of my favorite associated press quotes of all time. a direct quote.
1:20 am
i'm sorry. i didn't think i was going to talk about man on dog with a united states senator. it's sort of freaking me out. end quote. maybe the greatest response, greatest spontaneous response ever by an interviewer. that was an ap reporter responding in amaze many to then senator rick santorum that he thought same sex marriages were the same as man on dog relationships. and thus he forevermore became known as rick man on dog santorum. having that on your name. it is happening in the funniest way possible. that is our best new thing possible coming up at the end of the show tonight. please do stay with us for that.
1:21 am
1:22 am
coming up in a moment, that i have remarkable tape that i mentioned a moment ago. it is from south carolina. the house there started debating whether or not to remove the confederate flag from the grounds of the state capitol. there was an expectation that it would be contentious if not nasty, given how contentious this issue is and how emotional this issue is for many in that state. for much of the day, it was quite the opposite. it was very moving. >> i have a lot of people who will me back home, grady, you vote to take it down, i've never voted against you. but if this has to be my, so be it. my mama god bless her soul, this coming april, she would have gone 19 years.
1:23 am
she left me all of her confederate memorabilia. she was an avid member, loved the united daughters of the confederacy. my mama, god bless her soul, would tell me, grady, you need to do what you know is right. >> that was grady brown. a democrat who has served for over 30 years in the legislature. someone whose great grand father was a confederate soldier. he is hearing with there in his face, in his district. he would vote to remove the flag. his side came in appearing to have a narrow margin, the votes they need to win. the votes they need to take down the flag. keeping and retiring the flag is the last issue the house will take up before they adjourn for the year. there's a real sense if this legislation doesn't get passed right now, the moral left of this issue will be taken up. the further we get in time from the massacre in that charleston church, the further we get from
1:24 am
the senators of senator pinckney and the others killed in that church. the less politically possible it will ever be to retire it from the state grounds. so there is a sense of urgency to do it now. that's perhaps why governor haley went personally to speak to members of the south carolina house during the lunch break this afternoon. to urge them to go forward with this bill. the governor reportedly made another emotional plea to have the flag removed. if the house can do it, if they can pass that bill, that flag could be gone by the end of this week. the debate today slowed way down because of more than 65 amendments that were put on the bill to be road blocks. designed to drag the bill down and keep it from passing. they are mostly the work of one, sort of republican and already dozens have been ruled out of order but he's been putting them
1:25 am
out there to stop it from happening. the house in south carolina has been debating this issue for more than ten hours today and only the with mostly civil and ill passioned speeches from lawmaker of both parties. this is the time i want you to see. very late this evening, as we were getting ready to come into the show live. one republican lawmaker named jenny horne pleaded. >> i attended the funeral of senator clementa pinckney and the people of charleston deserve immediate and swift removal of that flag from these grounds. we can save for another day where this flag needs to go. where, which flag needs to fly or where it needs to fly or what museum it needs to be in. but the immediate issue as far as i'm concerned as a member of the charleston delegation and speaking on of what of the people in charleston, this flag offends my friend, my friend john king, my friend reverend neil. i cannot believe that we do not have the heart in this body to
1:26 am
do something meaningful such as take a symbol of hate off these grounds on friday. and if any of you vote to amend, you are ensuring this flag will fly beyond friday. and for the widow of senator pinckney and his two young daughters, that would be adding insult to injury. and i will not be a part of it.
1:27 am
i'm sorry. i have heard enough about heritage. i have a heritage. i am a lifelong south carolinian. i am a descendant of jefferson davis. okay? but that does not matter. it is not about jenny horne. it's about the people of south carolina who have demanded that this symbol of hate come off the state house grounds. we need to follow the example of the senate, remove this flag and do it today. because this issue is not getting any better with age. thank you. >> republican jenny horne speaking late this evening in the south carolina house. as this amazing session continues, lawmaker could hold a
1:28 am
second vote on the bill only the which would pave the way for a final vote tomorrow that could send the vote to governor haley's desk. if that happens, it could be down as soon as tomorrow or friday. it is far from a done deal as this remarkable conversation continues in that state. watch this. why leave the site? don't you know the tripadvisor you've always trusted for reviews, book! now checks over 200 websites to find the best price?! over 200 sites checked to find the best price. so don't just visit tripadvisor... book at tripadvisor.

1:30 am
1:31 am
1:32 am
why are we here in new york? >> i've been to iowa many times, new hampshire many, many times. i love the people there and we've had tremendous success, tremendous crowds. nobody gets as many standing ovations and i spent a lot of time out. i was in south carolina recently. we're all over. >> we've had no campaign events this week. no campaign events planned next week. you're not campaigning that much. how can anybody take you seriously if you're not out there showing your face? >> i'm doing television with you and i am up there a lot. and i watch them walking the streets and it didn't mean anything. and i was getting more news coverage than anybody because i'm the one who brought up the whole mess with immigration and what the mexican government is doing. so i didn't have anything to do. it wasn't necessary. >> katy that tur did this interview and she identified this aspect of the phenomenon in the race for president that nobody was talking about before
1:33 am
katy put it to him like that. that is awkward issue, whatever you think about mr. trump, he isn't really campaigning in the way candidates campaign. he is not going to the early voting states. he is not showing up at fourth of july events in new hampshire. katy is right on that. he is not really campaigning. and her asking him about that is part of why this made so much news. i have to say, that mr. trump's answer to her charge, his answer to her question, his answer that he doesn't need to be in iowa or new hampshire, he just needs to keep doing national interviews. that answer is also really quite rational in this political environment. in contrast, today was, a candidate who won't even make the debate stage. john casic started blowing hundred of thousands of dollars blow. for ads in new hampshire. bobby jindal started hundreds of
1:34 am
thousands in ads in iowa. traditionally, that's the way you campaign. in the early states. the early votes matter. this year they won't even get on the stage in the debates unless they're getting national poll numbers which donald trump is getting but these guys are not. you don't get them by going to the early states and spending all your money in local tv money. you get national poll numbers by being of national interest. by doing national media. making national news. and donald trump, whatever you think of his strategy, he continues to place very comfortably in the top ten, sometime even the top two in terms of national poll numbers among the republican candidates. and he's just had his first place polling finish in the state of north carolina. necessary first place by a big
1:35 am
margin. for all that success thoughering does not seem to be enjoying himself. >> what about the company that have backed away from you? nine but our county. if you want to look at the city of new york, ten. are you concerned that you will come to the point where you'll lose so much business that this is not worth it? >> let me tell you what's worth it. if it weren't for immigration, you wouldn't even be hearing about it. this is too important. yeah, i'm losing some contracts. who cares? people politically, they're weak and they want to be politically correct. some of them have already apologized to me. they made a mistake. and you know what? that's fine. because compared to what i have. my company is a massive company and a very rich company. but compared to what i have, it doesn't matter. even if it was a huge amount of money. i would still do this. when people run, as an example, when these different people are running for president, they don't lose anything. a politician doesn't lose anything when he or she runs for president.
1:36 am
they run, they lose, they win. they don't lose anything. when i run as a successful person, i lose a tremendous amount. >> i lose a tremendous amount. mr. trump is still losing business. the latest to jump ship include the pga which pulled its grand slam of golf exhibition from mr. trump's golf club in l.a. films van hughesen. they say they are in the process of winding down business with mr. trump. today star chef who was slated to open the flagship restaurant and mr. trump's new washington, d.c. hotel. he pulled out. jose andres said he was out of that business deal. he also put out this quite eloquent statement explaining why he felt like he could no longer stay in this business relationship. he said donald trump's recent comments make it impossible for me to move forward in the upcoming restaurant in d.c. more than half of my team is hispanic, as is many of our
1:37 am
guests and as a proud spanish immigrant, i believe every human being deserves respect regardless of immigration status. and that eloquent and fairly moving statement from this famous chef, from jose andres, highlights one of the unexpected ways the presence of donald trump as a presidential candidate is giving some other people the opportunity to shine. i mean, it is happening in business as company and individual entrepreneurs get a chance to say, i'm not got go associate myself with him anymore. these are my values and this is. why giving them a chance to shine. it is also happening more in the campaign as more and more of the
1:38 am
rest of the republican presidential field realizes, one of the ways they can make themselves look serious and responsible and respectable is to make a big public deal out of telling everybody how much they disagree with donald trump. rick perry did it today in a sort of self-serious -- he doesn't do the video well. he doesn't do a great job. but in this new self-serious video from rick perry, he called donald trump donal like he's irish. he says donal trump is wrong. after a speech today, lindsey graham said my party is in a hole with hispanics. somebody needs to take the shovel out of their hands. and saying he doesn't represent the republican party. so the success of donald trump as a republican candidate for president so far. it has had some weird side benefits. i has provided lots of peel in the business world and position with a chance to build. they up as more rational and decent by comparison when you put them alongside donald trump and ask them to comment. but it is homeless one truly excellent side benefit.
1:39 am
which is that his candidacy has reinvigorated what ought to be a great american industry. of making fun of donald trump. and i'm here to tell you tonight, that industry, the making fun of donald trump industry, is back. it's always been there to a certain extent. he's always been a little bit inhaernltly hilarious. but the industry of making fun of him to great effect is a thing of great beauty and that's tonight's best new thing of the world. please stay tuned for this.

1:42 am
we have some breaking news to report which has just come in on the subject of donald trump within the last couple minutes. the "washington post" has reported the chairman of the republican party reince priebus spent nearly an hour on the phone with donald trump. nearly an hour on the phone with him tonight urging him to tone down his inflammatory comments about immigration. amazing. reince priebus gesture come according to the "washington post," comes at the urging of increasingly worried party leaders.
1:43 am
so if they're trying to get him to tone it down, one question is whether mr. trump will respond to that. the other question is whether or not republican leaders are out of step with republican vote orders this. because republican voters seem to like donald trump. donald trump today has just placed first in a statewide republican poll. ppp has just released its findings of a poll of republican voters in north carolina. and north carolina republican voters picked donald trump as the first choice for president by a pretty large margin. first choice. joining us now, tom jensen, from the poll which conducted the poll. thanks very much for being here. it is nice to have you here. >> thank you. >> so i don't mean to be too oblivious about this, but i really want an answer to this question and i'm hoping you are the man to tell me. who is it that wants donald trump for president as their first choice? what can you tell us about who
1:44 am
are these respondents who tell us he is their guy? >> if you're a conservative in north carolina, your world has been turned on its head over the last couple weeks. here are three things we found on the poll. republicans in north carolina love the confederate flag. it is getting taken awayful republicans in north carolina hate gay marriage. it is here to say stay. republicans hate obamacare and it is here to stay. one thing they think is the reason these liberal thing have been happening is that republican leaders have not been steadfast enough in their conservative leadership. they're compromised too much. here you have donald trump making the most extreme statements possible. going as far to the right as he can. that's really appealing to a segment of voters who think republican leaders have abandoned their own party and let this happen. >> if that doesn't translate into i want a nonpolitician, if
1:45 am
that was, if it was oh, politicians have failed us. we need someone outside the political system. there are other choices. carly fiorina, ben carson, other outsiders. you're saying it is his outrageousness that makes hill attractive rather than just that as he business guy. >> yeah. every single time trump makes one of these really far out conservative extremist sort of statements, we see his favorability number with republican voters go up and up and up. before trump got into the race, we were intending to find republican vote hears slightly negative opinion of him on. this north carolina survey, 55% favorable. 32% unfavorable. so he is really striking a chord with these voters. particularly who identify. they as being very conservative. >> tom, i don't want you to get ahead of the numbers but based on the number you're describing, as somebody with the polling back ground you've got, do you expect this to be a north carolina only phenomenon? or do you expect this to be the
1:46 am
kind of thing in other states that have a similar demographic profile? >> i think this is something that at least for now, is the case across the country. basically, every single poll that has come out in every state over the last two or three week or nationally has shown donald trump in the top two or three. and one thing that was particularly fascinating about this poll, rachel. john case dlix was at 0. bobby jindal was at 1. some of these people just aren't getting any momentum. we see trump doing well in state after state after state. he is willing to say the things that really appeal to the most conservative base. even if they're things that just destroy republicans for a general election. >> director of public polling, thank you very much for helping us make sense of all this. fascinating findings. the industry of making fun of donald trump is reborn. we have a lot more still ahead.

1:51 am
hue show chavez admitting in a speech that he chews cocoa every morning and also eats something called cocoa paste. by the way, it's addictive and he gets it from the dictator in bolivia. >> it is cocoa. >> oh, cocoa would be fine. >> apparently somebody at the fox news channel whose job it is to stand on the side of the set and say, it's not violins on television. it is violence on television. that is a different story. that would be fine. thank god for fox news. if they didn't exist we'd have to invent them and tell people that is what right wing tv is like. on the subject of coca, pope francis landed in bolivia. the highest altitude national capital in the world. the bolivian culture minister
1:52 am
said in advance of his visit to la paz the vatican asked that coca leaves be available for his trip. they are what you use to make cocaine but they are used as a mild stimulant and to treat altitude sickness. the vatican said he may choose to eat coca leaves and may not. he will choose what he thinks is right. we do not know if he chewed them to alleviate altitude sickness. he might. everybody freak out. the big news about the pope, american news. the pope is coming to the u.s. on september 24th. he will be the first pope to address a joint session of congress, very exciting.
