12:00 pm
hey everybody i'm yasmin vossoughian. if you are just joining us, welcome. if you are sticking with us, thank you. a cavalcade of cruelty courtesy of the gop. the seems to be no other way to describe the flow of punitive antiabortion bills being passed -- around the country. the details which are outstanding. it includes a new one from oklahoma, that has the title of being the strictest in the nation. i'll be talking to emily wales from planned parenthood of the
12:01 pm
great plains. -- wife of the supreme court justice clarence thomas, and her role to overturn the election. yet she doesn't seem to be on the raider of the january six committee. >> one week ago, a gunman filled with hate targeted a black community in a deadly rampage. i will talk to mayor byron brown -- about what can be done next to heal the community. we are still dealing with covid and now that there are new fears of a new medical issue in the united states, monkeypox. we'll tell you if you need to be worried. we will begin with the battle for abortion rights. it's happening right now. gop can state-controlled legislators across the country. a rush to pass bills in anticipation of roe being overturned by the supreme court. take the city of oklahoma, a bill made its way to the state legislature on thursday, which
12:02 pm
bans abortions from fertilization with exceptions. here's more on the pending legislation. >> the governor has promised to sign any anti abortion registration that reaches his desk. >> we want to outlaw abortion in the state of oklahoma. >> the bills go further than the texas law that went into effect last year. similarly, includes a permission allows a citizen to suing anyone unknowingly engaged in conduct that aids or bets and -- abortion. >> this is about interfering with the rights to of autonomy. >> it joints to other restrictive antiabortion laws already passed in the state. we were there during post test on the state house steps. >> oklahoma has seen in numerous bills the session that impacts abortion care.
12:03 pm
one >> one, banning the procedure after six weeks of pregnancy, and another one that makes it a felony to perform an abortion. >> all right, so the states attack on abortion rights, from republican lawmakers, it is coming after that leaked supreme court draft him -- if it overturned the legislation -- oklahoma state government passed this -- which would allow family members of rapists to sue the doctors who form abortions. the bill, which -- allows the parents in a siblings of a fetus to sue providers up to four years following a procedure. it also sets as damages $20,000
12:04 pm
per lawsuit. -- joining us now is emily wales, ceo of parent planning heard great plains. thank you so much for joining. unless it is outstanding some of the laws that are in place and anticipation of the overturn of roe v. wade which we are thinking that would happen sometime in late june. first talk about the impacts of these incredibly restrictive laws in the lead up to that possible overturn. >> already we have patients who are extremely confused about what their rights are about with the us -- for the past eight months in oklahoma, we have been serving oklahomans, but also texans who have been crossing the state lines for care. some of those texans have told us they're acting like a criminal, they cancel their family and friends they are seeking abortion care, even if they knew they would be a supportive. there are afraid of putting them at risk, for language such
12:05 pm
as aiding and abetting access to care. now we are having conversations with their neighbors and family and friends because the same type of laws going into effect in oklahoma. >> let's talk about oklahoma specifically. what's planned parenthood gonna do there? what are you doing to prepare for the overturn if in fact it comes down the way that we think it will, of rural? >> we were hoping of course we have more time to provide -- instead, now that we have to -- one that is not signed, we know the governor it will sign. we are expecting that patients will lose care very, very quickly. we are already talking to patients about getting out of the states, going to new mexico, colorado, kansas, illinois, some of those are gonna be able to figure out logistics. they will be putting children in childcare longer, take extra shifts off works, but not everybody can do. that many we talked to,
12:06 pm
especially from texas, found it to be too much of a barrier if they had to add an extra hour or two to get here. so telling the patients that they will have to be in the car for another ten hours will not be feasible. >> it's gonna be credibly hard to travel from the state of oklahoma to colorado,, illinois, new mexico and expensive for many of these women. i want to talk about this long idaho. i read this article and, i was just mind-blowing by the vanity fair article. this law says that if a child's aborted, the doctor that aborted that child that was, can be sued by the parents of the rapist. so, if someone rapes a woman, if a man race the woman, she's then impregnated by her rapist, the family of that rapist can sue the doctor that forms that abortion, giving rights to the family members of the rapist. when you make of that just on a
12:07 pm
reactionary level? >> it is horrifying. i'm sad to say it is not shocking. a number of the bills that are already law that have been on the books for a while, actually provide for family members or others who would have known a would-be baby, had someone not have an abortion, they can actually sue already. the differences, we are talking about who holds these rights. we are right, it should be shocking to all of us that somebody who has already been victimized can be re-victimized and brought to court to establish rights for the family members who assaulted them. >> so, i want you to talk more about that. i'm sure that in your clinic you have had women in your clinic that have sought out abortion services there as victims of rape. victims of sexual assault. talk to me about how incredibly we vulnerable these women are
12:08 pm
and how hurt they are and what they're going through emotionally. and then to put this on top of that. to re-victimize them as you said. >> it's already been extremely difficult for many of the patients we've seen who are victims of sexual assault or violence to get care. and are part of the country, we don't have enough providers as it is. so oftentimes patients are waiting a long period of time to come for they can get to. us when they do come to, us we are sometimes the first place where they have felt comforted, supported, in their decision to seek the care we offer. when you are on top of being a victim of assault, and then you say you have to travel now, or you can't get care in your home stay, or you can even be sued, the doctor who performs care for you can be sued, to establish rights on the behalf of someone else, that's a shocking and horrifying thing. the law that just passed in oklahoma requires that patients who would otherwise be exempt from the completely draconian law, would have to report to police they have been
12:09 pm
victimized before they can get care. so we've become agents of the state, and against their will, we will have to tell the state they were a victim before they even bill eligible of for care. it is interrupted of of the relationship between the provider in the patient. >> planned parenthood doesn't just provide abortion services. you provide health care for women. period. and of sentence. full stop. if this laws in place, roe is overturned, does planned parenthood continue to operate in oklahoma or would you not have the money to go forward? >> we will. we've been in oklahoma since 1930's and we do provide sexual and reproductive terror across the spectrum. that means sti testing, cancer, screenings contraception -- the difference is for patients who need abortion care, there are no other providers, and we will have to help them get out of the state. >> emily wells, thank you.
12:10 pm
a really important conversation. we appreciate it. i want to turn now to the investigation into the january six insurrection a tenth. this house select panel, hearing nine hours of testimony from trump's week -- also the washington post reporting that ginni thomas, the conservative activist and wife of supreme court justice clarence timeless, maybe in their sights after -- joining us now is msnbc's legal contributor paul butler. paul thanks for joining us on this. before we get into the controversy surrounding ginni thomas and the new revelations that the washington post is reporting, let's talk about nine hours of testimony from the former presidents personal attorney rudy giuliani. what do you make of? it >> this was months in the making. the deal was was giuliani would
12:11 pm
not discuss his conversations with trump, but there was plenty left to fill up the nine hours. giuliani was asked about the roles in the plant -- [inaudible] the panel also want to know which members of congress zoom giuliani was talking to around january 6th. >> giuliani in the, bag you've got nine hours of testimony for him. we're looking ahead to the public face of this entire investigation. there are new revelations. we knew the text exchanges between ginni thomas and
12:12 pm
meadows. now, there are these revelations from the washington post about these emails sent by ginni thomas, to overturn the election. of joe biden. the rightful election of joe biden in favor of the former president. -- congresswoman lofgren, and i asked her specifically if she felt at that time it was imperative that they called johnny thomas and for testimony. i wanna play for you her response. then i'll have you react. >> i think this is been hyped quite a bit out in the press. she had we know text messages have been put in the public arena. she was part of a group that was far down the conspiratorial rabbit hole. that doesn't make her the most important witness by any means. and so, we will pursue testimony from people who give
12:13 pm
us more information to get to the truth. it may include her. but she is far from the most important witness we are thinking of talking to. >> i got a, say i think i had a follow-up question, what are you thinking about calling in ginni thomas at this point? and she said no at the time. it seems as if she's being painted more by the january 6th panel as a conspiracy theorists than she isn't actually having information in the lead up to january 6th insurrection. do you think it's important to bring her in for testimony? or do you see her the same way of the way she painted her? >> i think ginni thomas is interesting to investigators for two reasons. first, she was in touch with high-level people at the white house. for example, she emailed mark meadows to see what he can do to overturn the election. she might have information about the state of mind and
12:14 pm
people in the white house after it was clear that trump had lost the election. that evidence would be significance if any of these officials are prosecuted. second, she is married to justice clarence thomas. so for thomas has refused to recuse himself from cases involving [inaudible] gaza -- anybody now who doesn't want to talk and just wants to run down the clock, the house panel is on a supertight deadline, -- [inaudible] >> it certainly seems like the
12:15 pm
january 6th panel is looking at it in a way is, if they had all the time in the world, they were called and ginni thomas. but they don't necessarily have that time. they are running up against the clock, the midterm elections. -- paul butler, as always, we thank you. still ahead everybody, cases of a virus called monkeypox and now raising concerns among some doctors. the symptoms to look for and what is being done to. finest, plus as buffalo works to recover after the racist deadly mass shooting last week, -- former mayoral mayoral candidates of that city talks of the what is being done to help a community that many say is rooted in segregation. -- then the mayor himself byron brown. we'll be right back. l be right back. you try crazy things... ...because you're crazy...

12:20 pm
warm sunny day. that beauty was shattered when a hateful, racist outsider came into our city and took the lives of ten is innocent community members and wounded three others. >> that was mayor byron brown, honoring the lives of those lost in last week's horrific attack in buffalo. his remark preceded a powerful moment of silence to mark the one-week anniversary of the shooting that took ten innocent lives. -- it lasted 123 seconds well houses of worship rang their bells 13 times, one for each victims. in many ways the attack has resurrected painful memories for a city still haunted by segregation. i want you to take a look at this. map this is buffalo in 2010. sharply divided by a main
12:21 pm
street. those green dots, they are all black residents, and those blue dots? white residents. it has been this way since around 1910, when city officials responded to racial tensions by effectively splitting the city in lafayette in half. preventing black residents from living in white neighborhoods. -- even as the city tried to move on from this painful era, some things did not change. as of 2018, roughly 85% of buffalo's black residents live on the east side. -- this is all by design. community organizer and former buffalo mayoral candidate india -- thank you so much for joining us. it's an incredibly sad day one week after that shooting at the tops grocery store honoring all the victims. i want to hear first from you about your friend, i'm --
12:22 pm
>> cat massie is a woman who is from the neighborhood i was organizing in, where was the former executive director of the community land trust that we found it as a neighborhood and as a community, to find solutions to some of the challenges that you just name, the red lining, the lack of homeownership, the lack of upward social mobility of black folks on the east side, especially in the -- neighborhood that was under threat of the negative impacts of neighborhood change due to high zing cost rising costs. she was a person who attended every meeting, who kept volumes of photo albums of the work that we had done together. she will be sorely missed. >> it's incredible that what we are talking about when it comes to the shooting, the systemic racism that exists in this country, that drove that shooter to do what he did last saturday's exactly which he was
12:23 pm
working to get rid of, to rise up the black community in that area. what's incredible loss for that community and the country as well and the fight to rig systemic racism overall. it's interesting india, because as i was there last weekend in buffalo, it struck me when i was speaking to someone who mentioned the tops was the only grocery store in that neighborhood, essentially a food desert really. and the tops grocery store damon want to put that grocery store there, but was forced to do so by lawmakers, because of the need, the necessity in that community. talk to me about that. and the systemic racism that has existed in the city of buffalo for quite some time. and how that it has been so difficult to overcome. >> food justice activists kits in the city of buffalo don't use the term food desert, we believe the deserts are naturally occurring. we use the term food apartheid. these are flawlessly decisions, where folks are forced to only
12:24 pm
have one option with lesser quality products, with higher prices. we have been supporting a local gentleman by the name of alex wright, who is trying to put a book brick and mortar co-op in the neighborhood, very close to that tops. there are people who are on the ground community members who are working to beat back some of the systemic challenges that we face, but this is not anything that is new. again, we can create policy, we cannot create policy, and if we are serious about helping this community heal and get better and lifting people out of concentrated poverty and disadvantages that allows something like this to happen, we will make sure that we are crafting policy and legislation and putting real, tangible resources into this community, because black people don't deserve any less than anyone else. >> what is that policy looks like to you? >> it looks like supporting
12:25 pm
community land trust. supporting community ownership. bringing the community to the table when decisions are making about how development occurrence, word occurrence and who benefits from that. right now we are having conversations about when the store will reopen. i was on the ground yesterday talking to people who live in that neighborhood, who are not being engaged. there needs to be the series of town hall meetings, the families of the victims need to be engaged, the people who live in that neighborhood infrequent that grocery store, we should be asking them what they want to see done with that store. it shouldn't be up to the ceo. it shouldn't be up to elected officials. this should be up to the people who shop there and you have to live with the nightmare, the trauma, that they have experience over and over and over again. >> as that was coming to you, i show that map, and i show the segregation that civilly exist in the city of buffalo, that's has been historic for very long time. when i arrived in buffalo last
12:26 pm
weekend, my over driver drove me to buffalo, and a white man he was a white, man he said to me we don't drive into this neighborhood. i said what do you mean? and he said white people don't come into a black neighborhood. i don't understand why the. means for the most from from new york city. for the most part this complete integration. that is not something that rings true to my existence. i did not understand what he said. i know you've also talked about that the shooter was able to google, or search, where do black people shop in buffalo? and figure out it was tops grocery store where he unloaded and shot the stun victims, or kill those ten victims. 13 victims total. talk to me about the segregation that is still exists, rampant in buffalo. >> not only is buffalo the sixth most segregated city in the nation, the third poorest of its size, but we've had multiple government officials who have been blatantly racist.
12:27 pm
we had a county sheriff who is responsible for more than 30 deaths under his watch. in full uniform. at a white supremacist rally. with the confederate flag hanging behind. and the fact that this person was outside of this area, doesn't mean like buffalo and western new york is absolved from white supremacy and racism in our own state. until we actively, have a racial equity roundtable in which everyone who is participating is either an elected official or clergy member, how about talking to every day buffalo names who lived? us talking to folks who would have frequented that? tops talking to some of the people who live in the neighborhood who have not had access to capital? who have not as accessed equity in their homes? or small business loans? how about going to them? finding solutions together? and putting your money where your mouth? >> putting your money where your mouth this.
12:28 pm
india -- speak the truth. thank you. we appreciate it. by the way buffalo mayor byron brown will join me later on this hour as well to continue this conversation on the city's problems with racism specifically. we'll be right back. . he he this is how it feels to have a dedicated fidelity advisor looking at your full financial picture. this is what it's like to have a comprehensive wealth plan with tax-smart investing strategies designed to help you keep more of what you earn. and set aside more for things like healthcare, or whatever comes down the road. this is "the planning effect" from fidelity. what do you think healthier looks like? cvs can help you support your nutrition, sleep, immune system, energy ...even skin. so healthier can look a lot cvs. healthier happens together. ♪("i've been everywhere" by johnny cash) ♪

12:33 pm
more gains in the eastern part of the ukraine. in fact, biden signing it less than 24 hours after russia claimed victory in a months long battle for a steel plant in mariupol. want to bring in nbc's jay greg who's in the capital city of -- and former cia officer and chief of operations in europe in eurasia, welcome to you. both p.j. let me to start with you on this. one can bring us up to date on what's been happening on the grounds over the last 12 hours or so. >> yes, and it thankfully it is quite tonight here in kyiv, but not to the east where we have seen at least 24 hours of intense fighting. much of it centered in and around the second largest city in ukraine, kharkiv. today we know that there were several bomb blasts and missile attacks in that region, including one in open air market. there are official to the ukraine army saying that at least one person was killed during the attacks there. at least 20 injured. again, severe missile strikes across that area which has been
12:34 pm
hotly contested over the last several weeks. the donbas region, also seeing some very intense fighting in fact it has got to back bad there that president zelenskyy here in ukraine, said today that it is and i'm quoting him, how to be on the ground in that region. he also talked about the role of diplomacy in this war, comparing it to a car. a vehicle they may use electricity part of the, time gas the. other listen to what he had to say. >> and now, it is a hybrid. that is why the war is so difficult. in the victory will be very difficult. it will be bloody, it will be a battle, but the end will definitely be diplomacy. >> you know, if that is the case right now, we are nowhere near the end. because the battles have become much more intense, to the east, jennifer. >> jay, i'm going to let you go. i know it is late from going to let you go back to, but we
12:35 pm
thank you for joining us as always, my friend. mark, let's talk through some of the suffragist laid out for us, and then top bigger picture here. so first i want to talk specifically about putin strategy and ukraine strategy as well. when we're listening to zelenskyy saying that the squad because of this long out drawn out bloody battle battle, it seems analyst zelenskyy woke up. he doesn't get a public of land when it comes to moscow and what they are looking for. when you're looking at putin's strategy here, especially in the eastern parts of the ukraine, it seems and correct me if i'm wrong, that he is really moving the goalposts here. he is in this it seems, rushes in this for the long haul. really moving the goalposts two of the border of russia further in further into ukraine. and if we are looking at along picture here, this could go on for a very long time. for the mental takeover down the road if ukraine. >> so you know, i think that there is a difference between what is aspirational for vladimir putin and what is
12:36 pm
based on reality. yesterday, the director general of the estonian board of intelligence service, someone who is really deeply respected in the intelligence world, said something really interesting. he said russia's losing politically, militarily, and morally. and even where they are right now in terms of their combat operations, they can't even sustain this in the east in terms of their losses. you know with manpower, and resources. so i think that in the end, my sense is that ukraine is going to prevail. and i think we should allow them to retake territory that is actually there's. and there is a growing sense, you hear in some circles weathers in germany are france, you don't want to humiliate putin, we want to give him some kind of an offering. but in terms of morale, we should let the ukrainians go as far as possible to retake land that was in fact there's. >> well i mean why not put quote on quote humiliate, as you said, putin? because in fact by giving him anything, you are empowering him to do this again, or
12:37 pm
continue to do this. >> that is absolutely, right. jasmine even a whole baseball analogy from my son's own baseball coach. that when there team was up six nothing at the seventh inning, he's a quote and he would say no bubbles. and what that means, is don't let your adversary come back. don't love to give them room to breathe because they can come back into. you because this is why lyndon sweden want to join nato. because they fear, you know a future russia in which putin will do this again. so why given the opportunity to do so? so ultimately i think that we have to continue, give the ukrainians but they need in terms of heavy weapons, and let's not be scared of ukraine actually winning. and i think flat vladimir putin that ultimately knows this. the russian military knows this, and it's just gonna be a questionable how long they can sustain these incredible office. 25,000 casualties, it's a figure use now. for the russian losses in ukraine, that is astounding. >> yeah, and i think that the reality on the ground is that no one actually thought to be
12:38 pm
any of this war, the beginning of this invasion, that the ukraine have the capability that the fact that it has now. that they have proven to have, in order to fight russia's military back. hearing these numbers, as you just mentioned, a third of the russian military we're here essentially has been lost. since the beginning of this, war which is just astounding to think about. i quickly want to touch on richest angles piece in time, because i thought it was astounding. and i want to read for you a quote, according to the economic intelligence unit, two thirds of the world's population live in countries who are neutral about the war or support russia. part of the reason for this is that two thirds of the world does not see the war that we see. that is due to the balkan-ization of the internet, which russia is in part responsible for. and i think that this is fascinating, mark, because we are seeing this war through our own perspective, and the american perspective. but in fact, two thirds of the world may in fact support or be neutral to the intentions of vladimir putin in this war. >> well, yeah what a great
12:39 pm
point. because the one thing that the russians are capable of is information operations, it's part of their hybrid war strategy. it's clear that their military is not very competent, but they're gonna pushing out this information. the way to combat that, and something that many of us have called for is pushing out the troops, so distant command on us, not in terms of europe. i think europe obviously is on our side, but across the globe. you know, push out with the russians are. doing war crimes, atrocities, the obviously the unjust invasion of a sovereign country. the truth is always going to prevail, but i think that we have to really understand that is not just europe in terms of the audience, it is global. and look, i think that you're gonna see even as president biden starts traveling around, obviously he's gonna go the middle east soon. i think that the war in the ukraine is going to be on his mind and particular when it comes to our gulf allies who have been neutral, unfortunately, in this. so there is some work to do and certainly explaining to the
12:40 pm
world, how awful russia has been in this conflict is something that is really going to be critically important in the weeks and months to come. >> by the way, we haven't had time to talk about it but we probably should on another scale, but it is china. we haven't talked about the fact that china as we talked with vulcanization of the internet by russia, china is also part of that conversation when it comes to influence in countries around the world in support of, and are being neutral to moscow. mark polio neuropathy, lists as always, we thank. you up next, dozens of cases of monkeypox are spreading across the world, with at least one case in the united states. but should you be concerned? we are going to break down the warning signs when we come back. the warninsig gns when we come back

12:42 pm
12:43 pm
welcome back. it was another heartbreaking day in buffalo. mourners gathered outside the
12:44 pm
tops grocery store to market a collective moment of silence for the victims of last week's shooting. the road to healing will be along an arduous one for loved ones left behind in this tragedy. with me now on the path forward is buffalo mayor byron brown. mayor brown, thank you so much for joining us today. one week after you and i spoke initially, this city, your town, it is in the midst of healing. talk to me first about the importance of this ceremony today, as people are honoring the lives that were lost, and the moment of silence you took. >> not long ago, we had a moment of silence in memory of the ten precious lives that were lost in our community because of this act of domestic terror that was motivated by intense racial hatred. it is the one-week anniversary
12:45 pm
of this terrible crime that was committed in our community from an outsider who traveled three and a half hours away from buffalo, with the express purpose of killing black people. it was part of our healing process to bring members of the community together to remember the lives lost to honor these very special members of our community, people who were incredibly important to their families and that were active members of our community. it leaves the hole in the hearts of the family members and it leaves the hole in the hearts of so many of us in the city of buffalo, new york. >> mayor, how do you fight for the city now? how do you help the city not just hail but thrive?
12:46 pm
miss the stats stefanik racism that i heard exists from so many individuals in that city, the black community that feels completely under attacked, feels that they are not supported, not being acknowledged, dumping recognized, how do you recognize, them support, them lift him up, and thrive? >> we've got to continue to wrap our arms around each other, hold each other up, lift each other up, express love for each other in this community. the only answer, at a time like this, only love can drive out hate. dr. king said it very eloquently, hate can't drive out hate, only love can do that. that's gotta be a major focus of what we do going forward. i also have said that i believe there has gotta be extraordinary federal aid coming to this community. this was an act of domestic
12:47 pm
terror. peoples lives were up and. peoples lives were shattered. just like when there is a natural disaster, and there is devastation in communities from the hurricane or from a tornado, this act of domestic terrorism causes devastation to the east side of buffalo, caused devastation to the black community into the city of buffalo and i would like to see direct federal intervention with resources to help us address the devastation, the trauma, the pain that the families of the victims are feeling, and that so many in the community are feeling right now. >> so mayor, let's talk about specifics. you are asking for federal aid. i'm wondering, if in fact you
