tv MSNBC Live With Ali Velshi MSNBC May 15, 2019 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT
ali velshi picks things up from they can get a political message washington. >> you have a a great afternoon. >> you too. in a country with >> we dare defend our rights. that's the stateot of on speech. it may save them from police brutality. are we right in focused on live alabama. and today these words are being streaming as the problem. put into action by people on both sides of the abortion argument. all eyes now on governor kay who has six days to sign is an >> prior to facebook to 2 billion users, users didn't have abortion ban into law. the capacity. this is a new concept that we should be able to go live. live means there's no human the only exception is if the mother's health is to be intent. that's why when we do broadcasts considered in serious danger. the bill provides no exception that are live, there's a delay for major sporting events. in cases of rape or incest, even if the victim is a child. the legislation would make performing an abortion a felony. they said we should protect children and have a delay for punishable by up to 99 years in children. >> the delay meaning a human can prison. the bill saw overwhelming support in the house and passed by a margin of 25-6 in the state identify dangerous content and stop it. facebook mainly relies on users
senate. to flag content. it's the most severe measure yet by a conservative legislature in i was saying why don't we have an effort to outright challenge adults view this content first. roe v. wade in which the supreme court established a woman's that's write started trying to put product design to reduce ligright to an abortion more th 40 years ago. some of the risks we're seeing. now that the court has a conservative majority, state >> one of the things we talked about in the commercial break is not that you think they need to governments are feeling emboldened to push the court to be ban ned or stopped, but the revisit that verdict. states like kentucky, cure ration is important. if you are allowing 2 billion people to do this, you need to mississippi, ohio and georgia hire the right people to the have all recently passed bans on right number of people to abortion once a fetal heartbeat cureuate. is detected. >> what we see is they have come but the fight is long from over. the aclu and planned parenthood to market too fast too quick. filed lawsuits today challenging they don't have enough staff. the ai in artificial ohio's heartbeat bill and alabama has pledged to fight the intelligence not good enough. in the case of facebook live, alabama law in court. at this time, the governor has you can't predict the future. you can maybe design something not indicated whether or not she will sign the bill. that would say that could be problematic and put extra eyes on it. we're not there yet. it's another six months not as they were putting forward in this plan, we have been calling accounting for the lengthy court on a lot of these things for years. a lot of these suggestions are battle. in place.
here to tell us what's next is but are they in place today? kerry sanders who joins us live from montgomery, which is alabama state capital 37. are they in place today? >> the administration says the >> the bill will have made it best way to argue these things from this here at the state is with a better argument. house across the street to the and most cases i fully agree with them. but that's not how you argue the live streaming of a massacre of smb going through a church or a capital to the governor's office, but as you said, she mosque. that's not going to happen. indicates she's not necessarily going to make an immediate decision. she did say earlier today what she would like to do is to have >> it's shocking to see that we her legal team review the bill, go through it line by line. need world leaders to even show up to say to the facebooks of the world, hey, you shouldn't be the bill was presented and able to live stream a massacre. i can't believe we're here. sponsored by represent i have the statements made today are terri collins. she did not write the bill. pretty much symbolic. they are nonbinding. she had the bill penned by an attorney here in alabama, who it's a step forward. with the white house saying we along with her and other don't want to participate that believes, they can write a law that would pass here in alabama seconds sends a cig issal. and then make its way to the u.s. supreme court. they believe ultimately overturn they have not taken a lot of action. roe v. wade, the 1973 decision we have seen that from europe. that gave women the constitutional right to choose and i think the united states to end a pregnancy. has a lot to gain exploited
i did an interview with her a short time ago about her believes in this bill, about the support and this is what she had around the world. >> jennifer, good to have you here. thank you for joining us. to say. >> in the last few years, i have carried a heartbeat bill. but what i have seen in the the trump administration proposes $1.6 billion in a nation is that no legislation is budget boost to its face is making it to the courts program. i'm going to talk with the head because of the roe v. wade decision. >> what that i camakes this dec? of nasa about what it will take to bailed permanent home on the moon and to get a man or woman to mars. you're watching msnbc. ating msn. >> baby in the womb is not a person. this bill is the reasoning that was behind the decision made in roe v. wade. and so we believe in alabama that baby in the womb is a person. that's a part of our life. >> reporter: unlike those cases that you mentioned that are being challenged as early as today by lawsuits filed by the likes of the aclu, here in alabama, they defined the moment that an abortion would be
illegal when a woman learns that (gasp) she is pregnant. (singsong) budget meeting! sweet. so that could be weeks into a if you compare last quarter to this quarter... various: mmm. pregnancy, months into a pregnancy. it's no wonder everything seems a little better by not having that fetal with the creamy taste of philly, heartbeat, they believe that it made with fresh milk and real cream. will actually allow the supreme court to recognize life exists you get more than yourfree shipping.ir, with the creamy taste of philly, rather than trying to put a you get everything you need for your home at a great price, specific timetable on the moment that life begins. the way it works best for you, does it begin at conception, i'll take that. wait honey, no. another moment in a pregnancy? when you want it. so the folks who put together you get a delivery experience you can always count on. the bill here say this was all you get your perfect find at a price to match, designed to go to the supreme court, one they anticipate the on your own schedule. governor here will sign and in you get fast and free shipping on the things that the coming days. make your home feel like you. that's what you get >> what is her view? when you've got wayfair. so shop now! is it going to inform others? there's nothing to suggest she's against this bill. is it all about whether it would hold up to court challenge? >> i'm not sure she and her legal team are the ones that want to make that decision.
i think they want to go through it and see as any governor would want to do the ramifications of passing a law like this and signing it. but it's notable she's a rema republican. this was passed by the super majorities in the house and senate here in the alabama state house. 85% of the lawmakers here are men. the bill made it out and over to the governor's desk for a signature. those who know say they have confidence that the fwov north is going to sign it. but that's a little bit of tea leaf reading until she puts pen to paper. >> thank you for your reporting on this. kerry sanders in alabama. alabama's bill marks the boldest move we have seen yet to challenge that landmark verdict. while advocates who oppose abortion rights are celebrating last night's legislative victory, there's a long legal road ahead for this bill.
here to give us context is kristen waters, an attorney with a law group in alabama. thank you for joining us. i think it's important for us to remember roe v. wade is about the 14th amendment and due process as it relates to privacy. it's actually a privacy ruling. it just so happened to apply to a woman's right to make a decision about abortion without the government's invasion of her privacy. roe v. wade is fairly specific about times and when government can regulate abortion. this ruling last night as it stands would come into conflict with roe v. wade as it's written. >> absolutely. it would come into direct conflict, which as other members have stated is their purpose. but dad, you've got allstate. with accident forgiveness they guarantee your rates won't go up just because of an accident. >> when we talk about the smart kid. indeed. governor, the fact that it was are you in good hands? written by a lawyer, you write a
law and it passes that's in contradiction to the the supreme court, how does that argument play out? >> i don't think it plays out well. there are 33 states that have passed some sort of abortion it was just two months ago regulations this year or in the past year. and alabama is going to be in that vice president mike pence line like all of the rest of made this bold pledge at a them. the goal here from the meeting of the space council. legislature is to get this to >> it's the policy of this the supreme court. i'm not sure it happens in this case. administration and the united this is a complete overhaul. states to return american astronauts to the moon within the rogers court has not one the next five years. and let me be clear, the first woman and the next man on the that likes to do that. that likes to take those kinds of actions. moon will both be american there are a lot of bills ahead astronauts, launched by american of alabama's that chip away at that right. rockets from american soil. that's probably something to be >> that's the kind of talk that warms my heart. more concern ed about. the trump administration is
>> and the chipping away, you say 33 states have different putting money behind the president's plan to, quote, kinds of laws that chip away, return to space in a big way. earlier this week, president but without dealing with the trump tweeted that his stuff that roe v. wade deals administration will update his with. they deal with the width of the 2020 request to include an additional $1.6 billion to help hallways in an abortion clinic or what people can do. fund nasa. there are ways a good lawyer could make that case to the supreme court. that request was sent to congress on monday night. but the net effect is similar. it comes as the space agency it's preventing women from getting abortions and it is against the spirit of roe v. seeks to accelerate its program wade. that becomes more of an issue. that plans to return astronauts to the moon by 2024 both if one of those other cases gets to the supreme court that may be a greater fear for women in this president trump and vice president pence have been a vid country. >> absolutely. i think there's a much greater supporters of the program. this summer marks the chance that the court would take anniversa one of those. anniversary of the moon landing that took place on july 20, making abortion a class a felony 1969. mystery was made that day. to provide an abortion in the state of alabama is just noth g something that i think many joining me now is ja nasa's people speculate will make it to administrator. thanks for being on the show. the supreme court. but as the legislature has >> great to be here.
stated, that's their hope. >> tell my viewers, you told me >> roe v. wade specifies the we went to the moon 50 years ago, why is it we need to go degree of privacy and that's the again and why is it is big deal? way it was written. >> the science is amazing. that a woman is entitled with we can do more science now than respect to making a decision about abortion absent the ever before. the moon is a repository of government's interference with great data from years past. the first trimester. it doesn't have an active geology, hydrosphere, so what >> i think as terri collins stated, that's why this bill was written as it was. they don't want that sort of impacted it is where it was challenge. they want the complete challenge billions of years ago. of roe v. wade. it's going to help us understand really this, we have to bring in our solar system and how it got planned parenthood versus casey formed. and one of the reasons it's if we're going to talk about that context. important, this is an important there are all sorts of burdens reason for me. that have to be overcome in i have an 11-year-old daughter, if you go back to the 1960s, our this. but they are going for a direct pilots that went to the moon in the 1960s were fighter pilots challenge. so this context, they were very and test pilots. deliberate about the reasoning there were no opportunities for behind that. but i think that there are other women in those days. i think it is important for us
to show the world that our things in the bill that are going to defeat it as well. they have the provision and the astronaut core is diverse, that it is highly qualified. bill regarding the admitting and i want my daughter, who's 11 rights to hospital. years old, to see herself in the same way that our astronaut core currently sees itself. capable of doing absolutely on the exact issue. monumental things. so that we can bring the best out in america, all of america. >> that's what so many people worried about with the end of the shuttle program. because it made young people excited, the patches and jackets >> thank you for joining me. and watching the launches. there's nothing like that. they are a partner with the five points law group based in even today on the show when we have a rocket launch of some birmingham. alabama's bill is one of the short, the audience responds so most restrictive bans on abortions in the country making positively to it. it a crime for doctors to let's talk about mars, the perform abortions at any stage president also talked about mars. here on the show we spend a lot of a pregnancy unless a woman's of time putting the check on the life is seriously threatened. president's enthusiasm and the way he says things. a woman would not be charged for having an abortion, but doctors but getting to mars requires in the state would face felony prison time for up to 99 years president trump style enthusiasm. if convicted. talk about putting a chill sit realistic?
>> it is. when we are going to the moon we are going in a way that's never driving the ability to get an been done before, stainably. abortion possibly over state lines. joining me is tom perez. the moon is a three day journey in addition to a man who was a home. earth and mars are on the same side of the sun once every 26 former labor secretary, you were the assistant attorney general months that means when we go to for civil rights. mars, we have to be willing to and that's sort of where this stay. the moon is our proving ground, dwells. we had many people who think the how do we live and work on another world. and then we can take that 14th amendment protections is a civil rights issue. capability onto mars. let me say this, it's important. what have we learned just in the last year? we know there are complex organic compounds on the surface >> it was a frontal assault. of mars. the building blocks for life i don't know why the discussion exist on the surface of mars. about whether she's going to they don't exist on the moon. sign the bill, i had no doubt she's going to sign the bill. we know, in the last year, we if she doesn't sign the bill, they will override the veto. have discovered liquid water 12 she's going to sign the bill. kilometers under the surface of so this is not only mars. anywhere there's liquid water, unconscionable and illegal, i there's life.
i'm not saying there's life on think about this through the lens of all the men who were mars, i don't know. considering this. i think we need to find out and the best way is to get our i wonder if any of them had a astronauts to mars. conversation with someone who according to a 2009 report, was going through this or their families. apollo cost roughly the notion that this republican government can't regulate $19.4 billion between 16960 and polluters we can tell women what 1973, converted into today's to do with their bodies is dollars, adjusted for inflation remarkably hypocritical. that's $116.5 billion, this is a it's unconstitutional. $22 billion budget that you've got, which also focuses on initiatives like the international space station, which is crucial, the james web space telescope, the space launch system. have we committed enough money to nasa? your dreams seem bigger than the check available? >> we'll take more money if unless her life is in danger. people want to give it to us. that's so extreme. but frankly, it's not but that's not our goal here. our goal is to achieve the surprising. the far right has been objective. here's i think what's important attempting to overturn the will to note. i think the numbers you just of the majority. cited are numbers for the entire
0% of the american people say apollo program, which was -- >> yes, correct. clearly roe v. wade is the law >> -- many years in length. of the land. and leave these decisions up to so what we're doing now, the $22 billion that you mentioned women, up to families. is nasa's one year budget. it's a personal decision. if you extend that over time, i know we have the money necessary to get this job done. it's important to note we have advantages today we didn't have >> where do we legally need to in the 1960s. we were building everything from scratch back then. be in saying i don't have to we didn't have infrastructure, like something to believe it no nasa centers, we had to start should be criminalized. i don't have to -- we had this from scratch. today we have the infrastructure, the miniaturization of electronics, experience in canada with gay the ability to store electronics marriage. it was brought into play much earlier than in the united states. i don't know it's because people in ways we didn't use to be able to store. we have the ability to reuse like marriage anymore or less. it's not for me to criminalize rockets and drive down costs in ways that did not exist in the someone's choice to do that. that seems to be absent in 1960s. so i'm here to say yes, we have discussion. it's about whether you believe the budgets necessary at this you should have an abortion or not opposed to should someone be point to achieve the end state and i would also say we can criminalized for performing or achieve more with the budgets receiving one. that we have than we've ever >> that is so extreme. been able to achieve before.
the effort to criminalize abortion, by the way, it's not >> thank you for being with me, always a pleasure to talk to you. we will continue this going to end abortion in conversation. i always enjoy having you on the alabama. it's going to end safe and legal show, sir. abortion in alabama. >> thank you. because it will return us to the always love it. look at the markets. this is an interesting day. we started way in the red and days prior. suddenly things turned around. i hear a lot of discussion from you know why? because the president has said conservative courts about the he is going to delay imposing importance of precedent. tariffs on the auto sector. for all the tariffs we have >> the idea that the law has going on, the concerns, that was been established. >> not only established, but roe a big worry. the auto sector is a very big v. wade and the framework and deal. that turned around. the basic framework it's up to a we now have another positive day woman in consultation with her on the markets with a minute left the dow is up about .5%. loved ones to make these decisions. >> specifically not up to the government. >> specifically not up to the everything is in the green government. nor should it be up to the today. we are having a positive day on all major markets. government. and this is part of the american fabric. this is not only about a woman's now we'll continue to cover right to choose, this is about this, we haven't made up for the women's economic empowerment in lost ground because of the trade my judgment. and this is not a surprise to war but at least today was positive news. i have news not so positive.
me. because there's been no subtly before we end the hour, i want about they are trying to do and to remember a woman who was a it's a call to action for everyone. giant in federal physical every day seemingly i'm reminded about why it's so important, the policy. alice spent stints as the budget job i currently have, electing democrats up and down the director under president clinton, and the vice chair of ballot. because what's happening in state legislatures is every bit the federal reserve. her achievement may be the as important as what's happening founding director of the here in congress. congressional budget office, >> what influence can you have on this? the bottom line is as we were setting the agency on a course just talking about, between 28 to be the highly respected arby or the of fiscal policy. and 33 legislatures states have imposed restrictions on get iti in an interview with "the an abortion that have the net washington post," robert effect of making it particularly difficult for women to get an ruchehour called her the athlete abortion. so things that were exist iing of public policy. i was fortunate to spend time talking with her over the years, family planning centers that performed abortions now can't including this appearance on exist because of the proximity they have to something or the width of the hallways and things like that. msnbc in 2017. i will miss her alice rivlen was the fact is the law is changing. >> the fact is there's been an unrelenting effort to chip away 88 years old. at the fundamental protections that does it for me. thanks for watching. from roe v. wade. "deadline: white house" with what we have to do is as nicole wallace starts right now.
hi, everyone. it's 4:00 in new york. and there's a new rallying cry democrats we talked about the for democrats running for u.s. house and that was president today. appropriate because we made the future of women's historic progress. what we also have to focus on is reproductive freedom is facing is state houses. we were proud to work with the its most significant legal democratic legislative campaign assault in history. the state of alabama moving to committee. there were eight state legislative chambers that were outlaw nearly all abortions in the state with the purpose of flipped in 2018 from republican passing a law designed to put to democrat. in the coming cycle, if we flip roe v. wade back up for debate 32 state legislative seats in 10 by the united states supreme legislative chambers, we flip those chambers. court. this may be the day women feared when they poured into the that's completely and utterly streets following president relevant to the conversation trump's inauguration. this may be important for the we're having here. democratic primary contenders in virginia if we win in the senate this year, we have when the fight is more important democratic control. than before. and may be the moment when that is why the mission of the independent and swing voters pay democratic national committee is to elect democrats up and down attention to the choice in the the ballot. 2020 election. the danger in republicans and and this unconscionable activity in alabama is a stark reminder of the fact that we must continue to organize in all 50
states. i believe we can win in places and win everywhere. we demonstrated that in 2018. we're going to continue to organize everywhere because things that people thought were just well settled in the world of trump are no longer well sett settled. this is exhibit a. >> good to see you. thank you for joining me. breaking news now, a helicopter has gone down in the hudson river in new york city. a new york waterway ferry crew helped rescue the pilot. he was carrying passengers between west 39th street in manhattan and 14th street in ohio bo hoboken when he saw the helicopter go down at 1:20 p.m. they deployed the cradle rescue device and pulled the pilot aboard. there was no one else on the
helicopter. there are no injuries reported. iran is officially ending some of the commitments it made in the nuclear deal as tensions between it and the united states make addlines around the world. what does it mean for the ability to work on nuclear weapons and what does it mean for the united states and its allies? we are live in tehran, next. plus it's been 50 years since man stepped on the moon. now nasa is getting ready to send another mission to the moon. the administrator will join me live to talk about this and why the moon is just the first stop before humans go to mars. you're watching msnbc. snbc stelara® works differently. studies showed relief and remission, with dosing every 8 weeks. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and may increase your risk of infections and cancer. some serious infections require hospitalization. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you have an infection or flu-like

president trump is just tweet ed about the even more fake news "new york times" are writing stories that there is infighting with respect to my strong policy in the middle east. there is no infighting whatsoever. different opinions are expressed and i make a decisive and final decision. it's a very simple process. all sides, views and policy ises are covered. i'm sure iran will want to talk soon. this comes as iran officially moves ahead to stop some of the commitments to the iran nuclear deal. the president announced last week on the anniversary of donald trump's withdrawal from the acord that they would resume identity rain yum if world powers refused to uphold the
nuclear deal. the u.s. withdraw from the deal that restricted the nuclear weapons capabilities, reimposing sanctions that crippled iran's economy before the 2015 deal. as tensions escalate, the state department has ordered nonemergency employees in neighboring iraq to leave the the embassy in baghdad and the consulate in irbil. to figure out what's happening, ali joins me now from the capital in tehran. starting with iran's announcement it's halting part of its commitments to the nuclear deal, do we know what commitments iran is ending and what consequences that could have. >> yes, we do. under the terms of the nuclear deal, iran agreed to ship out access uranium from the nuclear program. now they are saying they are going to keep it all. it does put iran on a slippery
slope. they have given the european union an ultimate um. if the remaining jcpoa can't imploemt their promises to protect iran's oil and banking n will resume high levels of uranium enrichment. that would almost be certainly a deal breaker for the europeans and music to the trump administration's ears. >> ali, i want to ask you about iraq. it's maybe confusing why an inb creased threat discussion results in the united states asking its percesonnel in iraq lee. because some may have missed the degree to which influence now is present. >> this is all part of a growing tension that is extremely troubling. there are no lines of communications between tehran
and washington. iran is being pushed into a corner in what the u.s. calls campaign of maximum pressure. they have gone after the oil sector, the steel sector and now they accuse iran of credible recent threats to u.s. service members and assets in iraq and syria. even though a british general who is the deputy commander of forces in iraq says there's no increased threat from iranian-backed forces. this strategy is creating a cycle neither side can back down from. leaving tehran with three choices. capitulate, which i'm pretty sure they are knot going to do, or wait and resist which seems to be the strategy adopted in tehran. now there may not be a war by design being planned by either side. and we're not saying we're on the precipice of a war, but in the absence of dialogue, we may stumble into some sort of a conflict by accident or miscalculation. >> that's exactly the danger. that's exactly the danger when
you don't have dialogue with an adversary. it's fair to say that since 1979 the united states and iran have been adversaries. when you're an adversary with the absence of a deal and direct lines of communication, that's the problem you could have. ali is our man in tehran. he's the bureau chief in iran thank you for joining us. it looks like we're about to get a precedent setting showdown over what executive privilege means. what information can the white house withhold from congress and what limits are there to congressional oversight. we'll dig into that with a lawmakers who will read the mueller report. you're watching msnbc. r report you' wreatching msnbc. i felt i couldn't be at my best wifor my family. c,
in only 8 weeks with mavyret, i was cured and left those doubts behind. i faced reminders of my hep c every day. but in only 8 weeks with mavyret, i was cured. even hanging with friends i worried about my hep c. but in only 8 weeks with mavyret, i was cured. mavyret is the only 8-week cure for all common types of hep c. before starting mavyret your doctor will test if you've had hepatitis b which may flare up and cause serious liver problems during and after treatment. tell your doctor if you've had hepatitis b, a liver or kidney transplant, other liver problems, hiv-1, or other medical conditions, and all medicines you take including herbal supplements. don't take mavyret with atazanavir or rifampin, or if you've had certain liver problems. common side effects include headache and tiredness. with hep c behind me, i feel free... ...fearless... ...and there's no looking back, because i am cured. talk to your doctor about mavyret.

appearing in the city for a presidential campaign event, harris proposed taking executive action for banning ar-15s. we are in new hampshire with the senator. >> reporter: that's praise from some gun advocacy groups commending her for look ing at it and approaching this nsh a different way by address ing the supply side and the industry side of this gun reform issue. for senator harris, she really frame this in an emotional way saying it's not a situation where the country is waiting for a national tragedy to occur. she mentioned newtown, the
recent shooting in california, saying that has already happened. she shows frustration with inaction. listen to how she put it earlier today. >> when elected president of the united states, i am prepared to give the united states congress 100 days to pull their act together and put a bill on my table. i'm also prepared and i'm announce iing it for the first e today here with you to take executive action to ban the import of assault weapons into our country. >> reporter: that line earned senator harris somewhat of a standing ovation from the crowd. this is an issue i hear all the time from voters. it's one of their top issues. there's just general frustration of lack of action in congress. she's not the only candidate in this crowded democratic field to propose some art is of gun reform. cory booker was here just this past weekend pushing his proposal, which includes establishing a federal gun
licensing or licensing for the purr which is of guns. but this is an issue that voters care a lot about and candidates are trying to get ahead of as they vie for their support. back to you. >> good to see you as always. the white house counsel is denying the request for records and testimony from dozens of current and former staff regarding the mueller report. congressional investigations are intended to obtain information to aid and evaluate a potential legislation. not to harass political opponents or to pursue an unauthorized do over of exhaustive law enforcement investigations conducted by the department of justice. this morning the house committee listened to testimony from legal experts on the issue of executive privilege and congressional oversight. this afternoon the chairman of that committee weighed in on
that matter. >> the white house is making the outrageous claim that no threat that a president cannot be held accountable for the american people. they say the justice department can't hold them accountable since the sitting president c cannot be indicted and now congress cannot hold a president accountable. this is ridiculous. it would make the president above the law. we totally reject it. >> joining me now is congresswoman from illinois who will be leading the reading of the mueller report on the house floor tonight after the voting concludes. congresswoman, thank you for joining us. good to see you again. what are you aiming to do? what's the point? >> very few americans have really read the mueller report. and i think it's really important particularly in the controversy that's going on right now. if you read from the mueller report, it says that while the president cannot be prosecuted,
that the congress can continue criminal investigations even during the term of the president. the essence of the mueller report in general is that the ball is really now in the court of the congress of the united states. because so few americans have really read it, we're taking selected quotes from the mueller report, which are really pretty damning about what the president, what the russians d we're going to focus tonight on the russians and the interference with our elections, but we think the american people have gotten a misleading view certainly by the attorney general barr who characterized it as case closed, we're done and now the white house council is saying that the congress should stay out. the words within the mueller
report say no one, include iinge president, is above the law to echo what our chairman said today to the media. no, we are going to make sure that we investigate, that we bring witnesses forward, that we ask for information, that we issue subpoenas and that is really recommended in many ways in this mueller report. that now the congress take over. so efforts to bipass that is nothing more than a cover up. >> you were elected in 1998. you have watched over time presidents continue to take more authority from congress. and as a number of people have written about this have said, when it's your president, you're not worried about it. people don't mind their own president. i'm saying americans don't. but what we have ended up with now is that you heard testimony from experts about congressional
oversight and about executive authority. we have whittled away at oversight tloes in the public opinion. how do you reassert that now. >> first of all, i think americans are saying that the congress and the public has owed the information. the polling tells us that the american people are not happy with the fact that this information is being withheld and any kind of investigation is being discouraged. this does not work for the white house or work for the republicans to assert that. even on the issue of any confrontation with iran, there's an effort in the house of representatives to say that the president has to come to the congress. we have the powers to ask permission. i think the american people want to see our branch of government and the people's house to take back the authority that we have.

states will not sign object to an effort for extremism. leaders from several nations and technology giants adopted the call during a meeting in paris. it's named after the new zealand city where 51 people were killed when a gunman attacked two mosques. part of the attacks were broadcast on facebook live prompting calls to improve efforts to stop the spread of harmful content. it calls for established one or more methods for users to report or flag inappropriate content including terrorism and violent extremism. invest in technology that improves their capability to detect and remove content. i'm going to discuss that more in a minute. update their policies to ban that content from being distributed. identify appropriate checks on live streaming to reduce the risk of spreading it. and regularly publish transparency reports detailing the removal of
terrorist or violent content. u.s. officials told "the washington post" while they support the goals of the christ church gal, there are concerns it clashes with free speech protections. the best tool to defeat terrorist speech is productive speech. all of this came hours after facebook announced it tightened rules for facebook live. the company says users who violate policy such as sharing a terrorist group statement without providing context will be temporarily blocked. the most serious will result in a permanent ban. join iing me is a social media researcher and communications at syracuse. good to have you here. >> nice to be here. >> let's put aside the free speech discussions for a moment and discuss live streaming.
