i knew from my kurt volker conversation and also from sort of the alarm bells that were coming from ambassador bill taylor and his team, that there were ukrainians who knew about this. and she told lawmakers she received two separate calls over the summer from alarmed ukrainian diplomats asking why the aid had been frozen before it was publicly reported. she testified this. i remember being very surprised at verizon, we're building the most powerful 5g experience for america. at the effectiveness of my ukrainian counterparts that's why the nfl chose verizon. diplomatic trade craft, as in to because they need the massive capacity of 5g with ultra wideband, say, they found out very early so more screaming, streaming, posting fans... on or much earlier than i expected them to. can experience 5g all at once. while each member of the house this is happening in 13 stadiums all across the country. republican caucus voted last week against holding public impeachment hearing, "the new now if verizon 5g can do this for the nfl... york times" highlights three gop imagine what it can do for you. congressman who signaled they may still be open to impeachment, bill hurd of texas, adam kinsinger of illinois and fred upton of michigan. according to the times, hurd has said there is damning evidence fthe prilosec otc two-weekymore. challenge against the president. is helping people love what they love again. and on sunday told fox news, if
he concluded that the president just one pill a day. 24 hours. used his office to get damaging zero heartburn. information on a political because life starts when heartburn stops. rival, we quote have to truly take the challenge at prilosecotc dot com. consider whether impeachment is the right tool or is not. now, kensinger has voiced that i'm part of a community of problem solvers. he wants to quet know what we make ideas grow. happened and upton has called from an everyday solution... to one that can take on a bigger challenge. the president's actions on we are solving problems that improve lives. ukraine disconcerting. former vice president joe biden at a town hall last night responded to house gop call for his son hunter biden to testify welcome back. before congress. >> there is no zero rationale former united nations ambassador for that to happen. nobody has suggested that nikki haley is defending her anything was done that was claim that two of president trump's cabinet members inappropriate. attempted to undermine his this is all a diversion. administration from within. this is traffic trump classic haily reiterated her story that former chief of staff john kelly and secretary rex tillerson trump. tried to rope her in, and she classic trump. when everything happens, he told trump about their plan. tries to find a scapegoat to >> why did you not feel or did avoid focus on him. you at any point feel a need to >> biden saying classic trump. tell the president, hey, this is joining me from washington, senior writer for the hill, what these guys are doing? >> well, i did tell the
scott wong. president, and i mean keep in good morning to you. thanks for joining us on this. mind, sean, this is one page out >> good morning. of 250 pages of the book, but i >> dooms have obviously voiced did tell the president, and i did tell the national security adviser, hr mcmaster, and there concerns -- dooms have obviously voiced concern, and calling for were others that knew of my hunter biden to testify amidst concerns. in the process. the impeachment inquiry, how do and let's keep in mind, what i you impact the scenario here have said is this wasn't that with regard to biden's 2020 these guys thought this was a rogue president. chances. this was that these guys well, it is simply not going to disagreed with his policy. happen. >> so meanwhile former secretary democrats control the majority, they control the impeachment of state rex tillerson is adamantly denying that he worked inquiry process, adam schiff has been very clear, that none of to undercut president trump's the bidens will be called before agenda. in a statement, to the "washington post," tillerson the house to testify. wrote in part this, at no time they have their set of did i, nor to my direct knowledge, did anybody else witnesses. republicans have, they requested serving along with me take any testimony from the actions to undermine the whistle-blower and from hunter president. my conversations with the biden himself. president in the prive sift oval but adam schiff is shutting that office were always candid, frank all down. i will say that over in the and my recommendations senate, on the other side of the straightforward. he goes on to add that quote capital, rand paul and some other trump allies are making some noise that they do want to ambassador haily was rarely a participant in my meetings and is not in a position to know focus on biden as a defense of what i may or may not have said trump, to try to draw a parallel to the president. let's get a check on your
to say look, there was some weather now with nbc wrong doing on this side. meteorologist bill karins. but look at joe biden, there was >> winter. >> winter. >> when you see a 9 on dallas. wrongdoing on that side as well. that's typically like maybe but as we know there has been no december, january. >> there is a legitimate proven, nothing proven in regard to these allegations, against nose-dive happening with regards to happening, especially on the hunter biden, there's no east coast where we are. evidence that he did anything >> it is coming today for us. the story yesterday was the illegal. so i think there is a lot of horrific travel problems through the ohio valley and the great skepticism from senate lakes. they had a little bit of rain. republicans and leadership that then a little bit of light snow. that is perhaps too political a and then the temperatures plunged. path to go down when you're it was just slip and slid all over the place. and this morning, wind chills dealing with something as are even diving down into the serious as impeachment. teens, heading in that direction >> let's talk about this lara at least. and known and houston, and new orleans is even down to 38, for cooper testimony that we ticked a wind chill for you so that is very cold. through earlier, some of which and that's what is so unusual about this, is if we were doing she is telling lawmakers that this in december or january, the president directed the administration to actually kind of just your typical cold freeze the aid over the summer. there was not an understanding arctic outbreak five or six of how this could legally play times of winter but the fact we're only in the middle of out. she talked about a conversation november and already this cold, she had with the u.s. envoy to this is very unusual, and it is ukraine kurt voke that's right aid would be released if the not going to last but the fact that it is zero wind chill in government of ukraine released a st. louis, and chicago, feels like negative 7 walking out the statement disavowing interference in the 2016 door this morning. that's the air mass that is heading for the east.
election. talk to me how you think laura let's take a look at the wind chills and track the cold. cooper's testimony may have advanced this impeachment inquiry going forward. so we start off today, in the >> well, she's one of the more 40s and 50s from dc to baltimore smaller players in this whole impeachment probe, but, and i to philadelphia. by 5:00 p.m. this evening, it think what's most memorable will feel like 24 degrees, in new york city. about her, her interview, with dc, 28. and norfolk, around 31. the house of representatives, and notice still very cold in the great lakes. was the fact that it was and then as we go into wednesday interrupted, if you remember, morning, tomorrow morning, at several weeks ago, interrupted by house republicans who marched this time, it will feel like the teens from roanoke to dc, into the deposition room and philly, new york, it will feel delayed that hearing for a single digits in areas in number of hours. northern new england. but obviously, the big take-away we will start to improve a little bit here through the is that she is saying that the midwest and the ohio valley, an then by the time we get to ukrainians knew, based on her wednesday afternoon, still cold, i mean it is not going to be conversations, with bill taylor, and kurt volker, it was her understanding that the ukrainians knew much earlier in warping the year that the hold was being warming up even with sunshine. thursday morning, everyone gets a break and we start returning to where we should be. placed on the $40 million of when it is this cold in the south this time of the year, that means the end of the military aid. that's significant, because growing season. freeze warnings in effect, in republicans have said that you the coastal areas. can't have a quid pro quo or only areas of florida will avoid the freeze as we go throughout extortion or bribery if the this morning and tomorrow other party doesn't know that morning.
the military aid is being held up. and so i think this certainly for today, umbrella weather not going to pour but light rain up and down the east coast but travel delays from the warm air undermines that central argument to the cold air later today and of the president, and the kind of windy. the upcoming weekend is looking republicans, that the ukrainians a lot more quiet for many people were really in the dark during this whole time. around the country. yes, so if we get through >> scott wong, thank you. we will talk to you again in this -- just a little bit. >> a little bit of a break. stay close. >> yes. >> new reporting that google is i talked about it a bit at the top of the show. collecting the personal health former president jimmy carter is data of millions of americans. in the hospital and scheduled to undergo a procedure this morning. your first look at "morning joe" is back in a moment. according to the carter center, the 95-year-old was admitted to emery hospital in atlanta last night for a surgery to relieve i visualize travel rewards. pressure on his brain caused by i receive travel rewards. bleeding from recent falls. the longest-living president in going new places! american history has suffered going out for a bite! several health setbacks as of going anytime. rewarded! late including a broken hip and a fractured pelvis. learn more at the explorer card dot com. none of which have appeared to have actually slowed him down.

you should be in the socialist party. biden is being this way, right? and due say that. you know it. >> what's specifically is elitist about how she's pursuing medicare for all? >> the attitude that we know better than ordinary people what's in their interests. it wasn't she is elitist, the attitude is elitist that people can't make up their own mind, and i wasn't talking about her, i was talking about the attitude, if you don't agree with me, get in the other party, and i'm more of a democrat from the shoe sole to my ears running in this democratic party. >> including her? >> including everybody. and one thing i never wondered about is what i believed and where my ideology was, and where i come from, and why i'm in this, and why i'm fighting. >> still ahead, mick mulvaney drops his bid to join a lawsuit over the impeachment probe after lawyers for john bolton say they want nothing to do with him.

facilitating the ukraine effort while bolton was among those objecting to it. not only did the motion filed by bolton and kupperman's attorney try to keep mulvaney out of the lawsuit, it also advanced an argument that mulvaney may have to testify in the impeachment probe. the motion specifically notes that mulvaney appeared to quote admit that there was a quid pro quo during a white house briefing last month, which many of us remember, meaning he may not be able to defy a subpoena by democrats since he has already discussed the matter publicly. mulvaney signaled last night that he will file his own lawsuit, challenging this congressional subpoena. joining me here on the set, msnbc legal analyst sefb serve. quite a tick tock of events yesterday, between bowlton and kupperman here. >> that's right. >> what happens if mulvaney's lawsuit, that he is going to do on his own now, gets dismissed and he is actually asked to comply with the subpoena, could this further implicate the president? >> it could. but a lot has to happen.
mulvaney will certainly file his own lawsuit, that will be determined, it will take time, but ultimately, at the end of the road, it is possible that mulvaney would be forced to testify. but in this case, for the immediate moment, all that has happened is the existing lawsuit, the plaintiff, kupperman, say this is our lawsuit, go get your own lawsuit, and that's exactly what mulvaney is likely to do, he has withdrawn his motion to intervene as another plaintiff, and he's probably going to be filing his own complaint for declaratory relief very shortly. >> were you surprised at all that mulvaney tried to attach himself to bolton and kupperman, considering how much on different sides of the issue they are when it comes to ukraine? >> here's the thing. mulvaney's attorneys wrote a well-written motion to intervene. but from the outset, observers recognized that there were some dissimilar interests involved. and in fact, mulvaney is probably more aligned with trump as a defendant than he is with
the plaintiffs, who are seeking to have their rights and responsibilities determined. after all, mulvaney is, or the existing plaintiffs, have no interest, they don't care what the outcome is of the constitutional debate. where as mulvaney is very much aligned with the defendant, the president. so just from the outset, there are some misalignments of interest that really stood out to even the casual observer. >> i want to talk quickly about the department official katherine croft's testimony essentially saying that ukraine knew that the aid was being withheld, which has been much of the republicans defense here. what do you make of that? >> it is more evidence of not only a quid pro quo but at least a demand. and this has been problematic from the outset. this is exactly the way everything is going to line up. and my prediction is, as it has been for several weeks, is that ultimately, the president's team's defense is going to
winnow down really to even if this happened, even if there was a demand, a quid pro quo, a withholding of aid in return for an investigation of corruption, and specifically an investigation of someone that is related to a political opponent of mine, even if all of that is true, it's perfectly allowable because as the president, i was rooting out corruption. if it just so happens to also benefit me personally, well, then, that doesn't matter. and that's really what this comes down to. it is going to come down what to what criminal law -- >> from the president specifically in the last couple of days. >> that's right. in federal criminal law, there is the idea of corrupt intent. the same act, if done with a proper intent, may be lawful. if it's done with a corrupt intent, for example, for personal gain, by an official, a government official, that takes an otherwise lawful event and makes it unlawful. >> danny cevallos, thank you, always good seeing you my friend. >> thank you. a check on the weather now with nbc meteorologist bill karins. >> good morning. and everyone else, if you're on
the east coast and waking up, get ready for one of those days where the weather changes rapidly. you maybe wake up this morning with the light jacket fine and by this evening you want the winter gear as the arctic air and the cold that's been moving through the middle of the country finally arrives on the east coast. so the first thing that we will have is just light rain that is now from the raleigh area, to richmond, to washington, d.c., and heading out the door early, light rain and showers around new york city and southern new england and some significant overnight snows last night in the adirondacks and the catskills and a little bit showing up in northern vermont. not a lot of snow left with the system. yes we may see flakes in dc, baltimore, philly new york, but not brief and stick on the pavement. and not concerned with slippery roads in the big cities. as we go throughout the day, this is how much additional snowfall we will get. the lake effect snow bands in cleveland, and erie an downwind of lake michigan, expected this time of the year, a little bit around the capital district, maybe an inch or so. higher elevations of northern new england could get a little bit of snow but this is not a
big snow event. it is more the temperatures plunging and feeling like the middle of winter so that is kind of the bigger deal. here is how it plays out. the storm will move through. by the time we get to noon today, if we're seeing snowflakes around dc and philly, new york, the first snowflakes of the season right around the lunch hour, by the time we get to 5:00 p.m., it's gone. i mean most of it is over with. even just about cape cod, a little bit left, and some light rain from charleston, to myrtle beach, up to wilmington, greenville, cape hatteras and by this evening, completely down and tomorrow, just chilly. traveling today at the airport, if we're having any issue, it is from the rain early in the day and then windy conditions are in the afternoon. i don't think we will have a lot of cancellations out of this. but we will see some delays and our friends in the middle of the country, as we talk more about this in the next half hour, it is cold. i mean today is 21 and sunny in chicago. and that's the best they can do. that's, you know, it is even colder now. and i will show you the wind chills. it's a little brutal. >> thank you, bill. still ahead, what we are learning this morning about a potentially prisoner exchange

welcome back. new overnight, the president of afghanistan has announced a prisoner exchange with the taliban that will free two professor from the american university of afghanistan. now, one of the professors is u.s. citizen kevin king, the other is australian citizen timothy week, both kidnapped at
gunpoint in kabul back in august of 2016. in exchange, afghanistan will release three members of the taliban. the american university of afghanistan released a statement this morning saying in part. >> this the university is encouraged to hear reports of the possible release of our two colleagues. we continue to urge the immediate and safe return of our faculty members who have been held in captivity, away from their friends and their families, for more than three years. and a bipartisan group of lawmakers are pushing president trump to disinvite turkish president erdogan for a scheduled white house visit scheduled for tomorrow. in the light of the 15 democrats and two republicans, led by house foreign affairs chair says turkey's invasion of syria last month has quote had disastrous consequences for u.s. national security. has led to deep divisions in the nato alliance. and caused a humanitarian crisis on the ground. given this situation, we believe that now is a particularly inappropriate time for president erdogan to visit the united
states, and we urge you to rescind this invitation. and erdogan is expected to hold a joint press conference with president trump tomorrow, the same day as the first public hearing of the impeachment inquiry. and a federal judge for the district of columbia yesterday ruled to dismiss president trump's lawsuit, to prevent the house ways and means committee from using new york's new tax law to pursue his state tax returns. trump's lawsuit was also set to stop the new york department of taxation from providing the documents and keep new york attorney general letsha james from enforcing the trust act. this new law allows the chairman of three congressional tax-related committees to request the state returns of public officials only after the treasury department fails to gain access to these documents. now, yesterday the judge ruled that his court was not in the proper jurisdiction to sue the new york officials named in the lawsuit and she quote go somewhere else and file. trump's personal attorney, jay

duval patrick is considering making a late entry into the 2020 presidential race, less than three months before the iowa caucuses. "the new york times" reports patrick has confided in some democratic officials that he does not think any of the current candidates have established political momentum and thinks there is an opening for someone who can unite both liberal and moderate voters, according to democrats who have spoken to him. alert them that he just may run the "times" notes that patrick of the trump campaign issued a started states to statement after hearing of patrick's potential 2020 run, saying in part this, late entries into the democratic party just mean that the existing cast of characters can't get it done, not one of them can beat donald trump, and the new ones can't either. and new york mayor bill deblasio is speaking out about former mayor michael bloomberg's potential run for the 2020 democratic presidential nomination, after marching in yesterday's veterans day parade in new york city, deblasio told reporters, bloomberg is quote a billionaire who epitomizes the
status quo. he went on to say this, would he be better than donald trump? of course. should he be the democratic nominee? no. although deblasio has not shied away from panning his predecessor, he did praise part of bloomberg's record including his work on gun control, climate change and on public health. meanwhile, more than half of new hampshire's democratic primary voters said they would not consider backing bloomberg if he were to actually run. 54%, just over half of the queen pea ak university poll, 37% said they would consider voting for him, just 2 said definitely. bloomberg is also the second choice among 9% of biden voters. 2% of buttigieg supporters. 1% of warren's. and none of sanders' new hampshire voters. joining me now from washington once again, senior staff writer for the hill, scott wong. i want to talk about the interest of more of these democrats looking to jump in to the race, patrick, bloomberg, former mayor, do you see here a
clear pathway to the presidency for these pretty late additions? >> definitely not a clear path. i mean bloomberg has obviously, he has taken a look at jumping in at this late stage, because he sees weaknesses in this current field of candidates. he's keeping his options open. but you know, bloomberg really, he has, he does have name i.d., i'll give him that, and he has $50 billion in his bank account. so he has a huge war chest. that will certainly be beneficial. but i just don't think right now that democrats believe that nominating another septuagenarian billionaire from manhattan is the answer to trump. and so i think there is a lot of people scratching their heads in washington, as well as in new york, saying is this really the right candidate that we want to
put up against donald trump. >> it is interesting, because you have spoke an lot about bloomberg. obviously, there has been a lot of criticism with regard to bloomberg being a late addition to the democratic primary race. but deval patrick interesting and not necessarily a name we have been hearing and now jumping in and the top tier candidates while the wide swath of candidates is a pretty diverse tier, the top tier is not necessarily diverse and deval patrick could add to that diversity at the top and could feasibly be an interesting ad add. what are your thoughts on him and the traction he could have. >> right, that's an interesting point you make. kamala harris and cory booker, two african-american, very popular senators, from california, and new jersey, have not gotten a lot of traction in this democratic primary field, as people had expected. i think a lot of people were looking to kamala harris as somebody who could be a front-runner in this race, and that simply has not panned out.
she's scaling back. and so i think perhaps deval patrick sees a lane here that, you know, democrats are looking to be the party of diversity, to be the party of inclusion, and they want somebody like deval patrick, who is another african-american, former governor of massachusetts, who could step in and fill that lane. so i think there is something to that. i will say that kamala harris and corey book ver been running for the past year or so and deval patrick has a lot of catching up to do. >> yes. >> he has been off the public stage for a while. and so he has a lot of catching up to do, in terms of getting his name out, and driving up his public i.d. >> scott wong, thank you, as always, my friend, appreciate it. good seeing you. >> thank you very much. multiple sources telling nbc news that house democrats are carefully planning this week's public impeachment hearings to emphasize a simple abuse of power case against the president. now, their strategy will reportedly rely on two key component, the witness list, and
the hearing format. the first three witnesses, ambassador bill taylor, diplomat george kent and sbasz dor marie yovanovitch, all gave impeachment investigators ukraine a democratic aide telling nbc news devote this quote this, they are all strong character witness, all three bring credibility to the impeachment inquiry, adding that ambassador bill taylor will lay everything out on wednesday and ambassador yovanovitch will tug at america's heart strings on friday a second democratic aide says taylor's exquisite note taking will lend credibility to his testimony which will quote corroborate the whistle-blower's complaints. this week's hearings will begin with opening statements from the house intel chair adam sif and ranking member nunes and the witnesses, but a 90 minute questioning period split evenly between democrats and republicans and once that time is up chairman schiff will
decide if more time is needed for additional questioning. and a third democratic aide say, if the american people only will watch the first hour, they will hear plenty. the first hour of each areaing is designed to be a block buster. >> and the disjointed response by the white house to the impeachment probe has been fueled by a dispute by acting md the white house counsel. mulvaney has urged aides not to comply withand budget which mul led have fallen in life. the post reports that mulvaney's office has blamed cipolione for blocking others. and cipiollone, released a letter from trump early last month saying the white house would not be cooperating with the impeachment inquiry. at the same time, two officials telling the post that trump has been complaining about mulvaney. blaming him for his political
troubles. and has toyed with the idea of replacing him. and president trump has yet again pledged to release a transcript of his first call with ukraine's president from back in april. he tweeted last night, this, in order to continue being the most transparent president in history, i will be releasing sometime this week the transcript of the first and therefore most important phone call i had with the president of ukraine. i am sure you will find it tantalizing. on saturday, trump said

eliminated, the president tweeted his support urging 66 million twitter followers to vote for the former press secretary, however that tweet was deleted after spicer was voted off. european car makers are trying to negotiate with the trump administration as the president is trying to impose tariffs on companies. talk to us about this, with regards to the president. he is actually going to impose these tariffs? >> i've got to say it is a tough thing to come up after sean spicer, it seems like it happened the last time, but as far as tariffs are concerned, the political reporting that the white house is going to delay the decision on whether trump will impose tariffs on german automakers by six months, this is the second time they have delayed, they already pushed it back once, in pay so it's been pushed back once.

they must decide whether they improperly tried to shut down the program by declaring it to be illegal while offering no detailed explanation or analysis. it has protected at least 800,000 dreamers brought to the u.s. as undocumented children from being deported. for more than two years the trump administration has tried to wind down that program. coming up on "morning joe," much more on the fight over daca with former head of secretary janet napolitano, plus the number two democrat in the senate, dick durbin and the latest in the impeachment push as we learn about testimony that seems to undercut one of the major claims the democrats have been using to impeach the president.

cofounder of axios, mike allen. good morning to you. >> good morning. thanks for having me in the house yesterday. >> we love having you on set as always. talk to us about the one big thing today. >> the axios one big thing is the republicans new impeachment argument. axios obtained an 18-page staff memo that went to the committee members who are going to be at the open hearing tomorrow making the republican case. and there's a key phrase in that memo. and that is the president's state of mind. so this memo argues that you need to understand the context of the president's state of mind when he was talk together ukrainian president. why does this matter? this matters because republicans are not going to context the mount tac mountain of facts out there with lots of corroborated facts. if they can make their argument about the president's state of mind and whether or not something seis impeachable that
gets them away from having to argue the facts that have a lot of documentation go with it. >> let's talk about the public hearings beginning tomorrow with bill taylor. what is axios reporting about the strategy of the democrats heading into these hearings? >> so i've learned a new phrase that you're going to hear a lot from democrats. and that is cheating our democracy. so house democrats going use that phrase to talk about what they believe president trump did. because, as we've been hearing on the earlier reporting on the show, they're very much trying to paint a narrative. tell a story. give a memorable narrative for the american people. and so one top aide told me that the challenge will be to keep it simple and not get into it was extortion? was it bribery? but to stick to the facts and to argue using the phrase cheating our democracy, what kind of
democracy do they want snink ? u and i think you can argue that house democrats made a precondition like this before but will do it again. >> i know they there was some reporting by some social media companies to improve their users' well-being. what more do you know on this? >> so now big tech wants to make us sane after years and years of trying to engage us as much as they could, to make their platform so attractive, addictive, that we would constantly want to be on our screens, to constantly give us that dopamine hit. now the companies are recognizing that some users are burning out. if too many people burn out, ultimately that's bad for their business. so we heard for a while about the company's talking about well-being, but now there's new ways to go at it. instagram says it's going to be begin testing in the united states the idea of hiding how many likes you get for a
