tv   The 11th Hour With Stephanie Ruhle  MSNBC  June 9, 2022 1:00am-2:00am PDT

1:00 am
the 11th hour with stephanie ruhle starts now. tonight, hours away from the january 6th committee, going public with its findings for the first time and more revealing audio of kevin mccarthy from right after the violent insurrection, vowing to do the very thing the committee promises. then today's gut-wrenching testimony on gun violence from the 11-year-old uvalde survivor who played dead to stay alive. begging america, don't let this happen again plus, americans paying up big time at the pump a reality check on who and what
1:01 am
is really to blame as "the 11th hour" gets under way on this wednesday night. good evening, once again i'm stephanie ruhle. tomorrow night the january 6th committee public hears officially begin and new audio of kevin mccarthy during a republican conference meeting days after the riot. listen to this. >> we cannot just sweep this under the rug. we need to know why it happened, who did it, and people need to be held account al for it, and i'm committed to make sure tha >> well, that is exactly what the committee is now planning to do. vice chairnn liz cheney says, i is all about showing americans why january 6th is a line this country can never cross ever again. >> this was a violent assault on the united states capitol and it was invoked by a signature president of the united states. if weke really want to understa why january 6th is a line that can never be crossed again, then
1:02 am
we really do have to sort of put the politics and the partisanship aside and let's understand what happened, and let's do everything we can to protect ourselves from it in the future. >> tomorrow, we expect to hear from two very important witnesses. a capitol police officer who suffered ace brain injury from e rioters,y and a documentary fi maker who got footage of the far right violent proud boys leading up to thegh attack. georgia's secretary of state brad raffensperger is reportedly in talks with the committee to testify publicly as well. we also just found out tonight, public hearing number three is now officially on the books for next wednesday at 10:00 a.m. and while the panel is gearing up for these hearing, republicans are teasing some of their own counter attacks which do absolutely nothing to inform us about what happened on that day. >> it is a smear campaign against president donald trump, against republican members of
1:03 am
congress, and against trump voters across this country. >> it has been a year and five months sinceve that awful attac happened. let's just take a moment to remember some of what this country experienced and what the world saw. >> chanting "hang mike pence,"
1:04 am
destroying nancy pelosi's office, beating police officers, it was an attack on our democracy, it was not a normal tourist day. the committee is still gathering evidence a year and five months later. a federal judge ordered the trump lawyer john eastman to turn over documents to investigators and as a reminder eastman is the guy who wrote the memos arguing that then vice president mike pence could overturn the 2022 election, which he could not. at the same time the justice department is conducting its own investigation. more than 800 people have already been arrested across the country, and another story we are following tonight, an armed man was arrested near the home of supreme court justice brett kavanaugh, officials say the 26-year-old man called 911 on himself, he was armed with a handgun, a knife, and pepper spray. and he said he was there to kill justice kavanaugh. there's a lot to get into, with that let's bring in our lead-off panel, hopefully get a little
1:05 am
bit smarter tonight, pulitzer prize winning journalist, deputy national editor for the "washington post," and federal prosecutor who quee have not seen in a while glen kirch ner, trying hundreds of cases, including murder trials and organized crime and jeremy peters is here, an author of "the new york times" and "insurgency," mr. peters, i turn to you first. >> from the committee's perspective, what does the definition of success look like for this meeting? >> i think it's puncturing this alternate reality that half the country, or close to half the country now sees because of conservative media, because of donald trump, and because of republicans in congress, many people now believe that this committee is nothing more than a smear campaign, nothing more than at least was said in the run-up, an effort to purge
1:06 am
donald trump and his supporters from the republican party. now, i think that's going to be pretty hard to do. but the fact that they have promised new evidence, and new testimony, we don't know what they have, and i think that's part of what makes tomorrow night so interesting and why a lot of people are watching with anticipation to see what happens, is you know, there are going to be witnesses that we've never heard from before, there are going to be scene from this documentary film maker that we've never seen before and as much as the horror of that day is seared into the memory of most americans, i think what the committee hopes to do is to remind people that this is not political. this is not some partisan gambit. this is about an assault on the seat of american democracy that should not be forgotten and should not be vanished down the memory hole of trump-ism. >> let's talk about that, the
1:07 am
majority of the american people who are not dug in hard core red or hard core blue, they're watching, what are they hoping to get? >> steph, i hope they're hoping to get a few things. hoping to get maybe new information, remember this committee has been much more witness interviews and document reviews, than any of the journalists who have been looking into this, the january 6th attack over the last year and a half. so there is potential here for the committee to reveal some new information that adds to what the public knows about what happened in the run-up to the attack and on the day of the attack itself. but think the american people also are looking for some understanding. they know this was a terrible event for the country. they of course saw the images of people storming the capitol. but what they might be missing is a bit of context, this connecting the dots and
1:08 am
understanding collectively what this means, who's at fault for it, and how the country moves forward, and whether the threat is still alive out there. and i think those are sort of the meta questions that the committee is going to try to answer beginning with tomorrow night's hearing. >> that is sort of biggest question. whether this threat is still alive. i want to share with jamie raskin who is a member of the committee said earlier today about the goal of the hearing. >> we need america to know that this is an ongoing assault on the democracy. is this something that we ever want to allow to happen again? fand not, then they're going have to listen to the final act of our committee, which is we will be issuing recommendations on what should be done in order, in order to fortify ourselves against coups and insurrections in the future. >> that's it right there, glen, the committee's, i want to say
1:09 am
almost obligation to show the american people what happened on january 6th isn't just something of the past, that connecting that dot, that that danger is still alive today, and in fact, january 6th was just a dress rehearsal for what's to come. will they move to show that? >> well, i think they will, steph, because what we've gotten thus far were, you know, letters from the select committee that were sent out to witnesses, cataloguing some of the evidence they expected that witness to provide, and then we would hear some things sort of leaking out, appropriately so, after some of the witnesses had testified, but we haven't seen the evidence with our own eyes. and you know, i for one think it is going to be a very compelling performance. the january 6th committee investigative team headed up by tim, a former expert rico prosecutor, from my former office, the dc u.s. attorney's office, that team of former federal prosecutors i believe has approached the january 6th investigation as if they were
1:10 am
investigating a rico case and i think just as they are expert investigators, they are very in depth at presenting evidence and presenting a case to the jury and in this case the jury is the american people. so once we see the evidence with our own eyes, if we conclude, as i suspect we will, that there's proof beyond a reasonable doubt that donald trump and company committed crimes against the united states, guess what? pressure bursts pipes and the department of justice will feel the pressure. i was a career prosecutor. we pretend to be immune from pressure and public opinion, and perception, but we're human. and if we give this kind of information to the american people, they see the crimes, they can be proved with their own eyes, then i think the department of justice will have nowhere to go but to begin indicting the command structure of the insurrection. >> what does that mean? indicting the command structure? >> it means trump and john eastman and it means rudy giuliani, and mark meadows.
1:11 am
steph, we should pay more attention to the fact that a federal judge in california, david carter, has announced in his rulings multiple times that there is proof by a preponderance of the evidence, 51% of the evidence that donald trump and john eastman committed felonies of constructing an official proceeding and conspiracy to defraud the united states. those are important findings. >> okay, i'm with you, but think about the american people, we're saying the american people who had been waiting five plus years for trump to pay the consequences for anything, you're saying they need to pay attention to a ruling from a judge in california, who said something that hasn't resulted in anything? come on. >> they pay attention to what the select committee is about to present to them, just as we would present the case to the jury, it's going to be compelling, it's going to be riveting, it's going to be linear, and i think if they sit and they absorb it, they're
1:12 am
going to come to the same conclusion that these wrong-doers need to be held accountable. >> jeremy, we keep talking about fox news isn't airing these hearings. how are you going to get those people, their viewers to see this content, are we looking at the wrong thing? if you're a hard core fox viewer, our you're dug, in you believe the big lice, you believe that january 6th was a normal day for tourists is, this focusing on the millions and millions of americans who are not just watching fox news at night? there's a lot more out there. >> that's an excellent point, stephanie because the people who are dug in who are loyal fox news viewers who aren't necessarily loyal fox news viewers who just kind of tune in on a regular basis and tend to tune out political news, like most of american, they weren't going to watch this anyway, and that's why fox isn't airing this, that's why you're not going to hear about it on conservative media in general after it happens, is their audience isn't interested.
1:13 am
and that in essence is what happened to the republican party right now, is they are just like fox, is worried about how its audience will respond, if it shows these hearings, the republican party, kevin mccarthy, elise stefanik, all of its leaders are afraid of getting on the wrong side of their voters. they're afraid of getting cross-wise with donald trump. and as much as, you know, there's been ink spilled and voices on various networks that have said trump's grip on the party is weakening, his endorsement doesn't matter as much as it used to, no, he has permeated the party to such an extent that it has completely, almost completely whitewashed the memory of one of the most horrific events to happen in modern times, and that, i think, speaks volumes, it speaks volumes that somewhere close to half the country is willing to just write this off, as you
1:14 am
said, as some kind of tourist expedition through the capitol. or they're just willing to say, it doesn't matter in the scheme of things, and i'm just going to worry about something else. >> they said what happened isn't necessarily a thing of past. you've got participants in that movement running for offices, for school boards, working in polls, getting election-related jobs, all around the country, and the threat is still alive and kicking, phil i want to share with harry dunn, one of the officers who was defending the capitol on january 6th told our colleague chris hayes about how he is feeling ahead of the hearing. >> i'm a little anxious, not necessarily in a good or excited kind of way, but going to find out some information, some may not be good, some may not be pleasant, i just want the truth about what happened that day. >> what did the terror mean for all of the people who were at the capitol, officer, staffers,
1:15 am
people who were scared for their lives? >> i think it is going to be a very difficult night for the people who witnessed and experienced the january 6th insurrection firsthand. you know, of course, they want these details to come out into the public, they believe in the fact-finding mission of this committee, they believe in finding ways to hold the perpetrators accountable, but this is personal for them. and it's traumatic. and many of them have experienced tremendous personal trauma in the wake of these attack, they've talked openly about the, not only the physical pain but the mental health troubles that they had, and so to see all of this played out in video, in sort of wide recollection, the recordings of these witness interviews and so forth, i think it could be a very painful experience for them, even as is necessary in many of their assessments for
1:16 am
the public to learn this information and to really study what happened. and by the way, you mentioned the threat not being extinguished, we must remember that tens of millions of americans continue to believe the big lie that the election was stolen, and former president trump is fomenting that lie day in and day out on the campaign trail still to this day and the anger and hostility that so many of his voters feel about the 2020 election creates this threat, very alive in state capitols around the country and here in washington and it is very real and i think we will see members of committee try to drive that home tomorrow night. >> what happens if the hearings ley out all of the awfulness that happened on the 6th and all of the things that is happening with the big lie across the country, what if it does all of that and still nothing comes of it? remember, all the committee can do is make recommendations to congress, a congress that agrees on almost nothing. then what happens to the american people?
1:17 am
how will we feel then? >> we will be slanting toward the end of our republic, if we see with our own eyes what trump and company did to try to overturn a real and fair election, to bring an end to the democracy and if the justice department believes it doesn't have enough evidence to indict, then virtually it will feel like the d.o.j. is giving its stamp of approval to the next nefarious president to do everything that donald trump has done, and then some. i don't see that as a viable option for our democracy. >> jeremy, your colleague peter baker has so the pretty extraordinary reporting, how jared kushner washed his hands of trump before january 6th, he wasn't there on january 6th, he wasn't there at all because what he was doing, he was focusing on his own personal project, he was in the middle east, raising money, so when trump was out of office jared could become the rich, rich man he always wanted to be.
1:18 am
what do you think about that? >> well, i think the underlying point there, in peter's reporting, and susan glasser, his co-author, his wife on the project, the book out in the fall which i can't wait to read is what you realize is there's, around trump, in those moments, nobody was there. you had people like hope hicks which peter reported in the story who had vanished and told trump, i'm sorry, no, i'm not with you on this, and that created this vacuum where people like rudy giuliani and sidney powell and mike lindell could come and have the ear of the president of the united states. and that is so extraordinary. but that's the reality of the republican party. >> i know we're out of time, jeremy, saying that is almost implying if jared and ivank and hope were there, trump would have done much better things, tell us over the course of four
1:19 am
years they were steering him in the right direction. >> sure, and i hear you 100% and that is something that should be said and will be a part of their legacy, they were complicit, they stood by and watched as trump was impeached the first time and told the president of ukraine to interfere in the election, right? so i mean the record there is pretty well established. but i think it stands that the fact that the republican party now has no one, no one who is an adult in the room, who can stand up to president, not each mitch mcconnell, can stand up to president trump, former president trump, and say enough. and that's what we're facing going into 2024. that no one -- >> that implies that at some point, jared kushner was the grownup in the room. yes, he was not pushing the big lie, he and steve mnuchin were overseas trying to gain big bucks for themselves. phil rucker, jeremy, glen, all hearings on that hearing tomorrow.

1:24 am
1:25 am
the absolute horror of the elementary school shooting in uvalde, texas, two weeks ago got very real today on capitol hill as this morning's house meeting on gun violence, lawmakers heard a 4th grader bravely describe how she survived a shooting that killed 19 classmates and two teachers. >> he came in the door. and he shot my teacher. and told my teacher, shot in the head, and then he shot some of my classmates. and he shot my friend.
1:26 am
and i thought he was going to come back to the room, so i just the blood, and then i put it all over me. >> if it was something that you want people to know about that day in uvalde or anything different you want there to be -- >> do to have security. >> do you feel safe at school? >> no. >> why not? >> because i don't want this to happen again. >> do you think it is going to happen again? >> extraordinary. committee members also heard from uvalde pediatrician dr. roy guerrero, and i warn you that as hard as it was ha to hear from miah, what you're going to hear from the doctor is even tougher. >> what i did find was something no prayer will ever relieve. two children whose bodies had been pulverized by bullets fired at them, decapitated, ripped
1:27 am
apart of their flesh, and the only clue to their identity was, claiming to life and finding none. and i can only hope that it will help with survivors but as i waited there with first responders and hospital staff, for other casualties we hoped to save, they never arrived. >> long after today's hearing, the house passed a package of gun safety bills including a measure that raises the minimum age to buy semi-automatic rifles from 18 to 21. here's the plan. it's going nowhere. it will stall in the senate. separately the plan in the senate working on that, has a problem, too. it appears to have hit a snag. nbc news reporting that there is a sticking point with the background checks. what does it mean tonight? we are no safer on gun safety than we were two weeks ago when that massacre took place. with that, let's bring in texas
1:28 am
state senator whose district includes uvalde. here we are again. it has been two weeks since that tragedy happened. what is the state of daily life for people in uvalde? >> mostly to say to say people are stuck is putting it lightly. it's just, it's tragic. families are shattered. i saw mr. rubio today, on, in congress, and how strong she was, ms. rubio today, on in congress and how strong she was and how strong her husband was and just so impressed how they're able to cope, but not ms. rubio or anybody else, nobody sought to be an advocate in this case, they just want their children back more than anything else. it is just tragedy what is going on with the community and all we can do is just be here for them and that's what i'm trying to do. >> john cornyn is negotiating in the senate on a possible gun law
1:29 am
package, obviously negotiating on behalf of the republicans, do you think anything is going to get done here? >> well, you know, look, i'm concerned about a lot of things. we've been hearing a lot about red flags. the fact is, the nra knows if they pass a red flag law in congress that they will fight it in the court system. the best thing we can do is raise the age limit. this is about money. it is about gun manufacturers making more and more money. and they know that raising the age limit, it's not constitutionally challengeable, and so they're going to make less money. so they want to see red flags, because they know what they're going to do. i'm very disappointed right now with what is happening in the senate. >> yes. >> they find every little thing to just break this thing down. >> sir, we know what should happen. but i want to get realistic. let's say something doesn't get done in congress. texas, which has only broadened, broadened what you can do around guns over the last few years, given the impact uvalde has had on the community, and on the
1:30 am
state, do you think anything is going to get done on a state level? >> well, i would ask greg abbott -- probably not, no, and that's the sad part about all of this, i would ask greg abbott to look at his friend ron desantis and look what he did after parkland and he raised the age limit. it is the right thing to do. republican constituents are asking for it. we need a governor who has the fortitude and goes back in a special session and does the right thing on the age limit and at least give us that common sense solution. but he refuses. he refuses, because he's in the same, he's stuck because of his own ambitions. >> but sir, he'll do something if texans demand it. do you believe texas voters will? >> 80% of republican voters, 80% want an age limit increase on assault weapons. it's what makes sense. you have to be 21 to buy a pistol. but you can be an 18-year-old to buy an ar-156789 everybody i
1:31 am
talk to, republicans, and democrats, tell me that that makes no sense. and clearly, it's something that we can address. red flags are something that we can't pass in austin. but what we could do is we can pass our own texas-sized atf, where we so woo have a 10-day waiting period, we would have a 10-day waiting period, allow state agencies to interview people, that would be things that make common gun sense. as you told you before, stephanie, i'm a gun owner and i get it and i get what my constituents in west texas want, at the end of the day, everybody i talk to wants to raise this age limit, republicans and democrats. >> some texas officials have floated this idea of arming teachers, something the majority of teachers in texas absolutely do not want. i want to share what congresswoman ayanna pressley of massachusetts, the point she made earlier today. >> only in america do we consider arming teacher and want
1:32 am
families to pay them a livable wage. >> what do you think about that? >> 77% of teacher does not want to carry weapons in the classroom. that's not what they signed up for. they didn't sign up to be cops. they signed up to teach our children. that's what they love to do. and not arming teacher, not one door, as some people in the legislature would have suggested, not having every cop have a ballistic shield, none of that is going to fix the bottom line problems, putting militarized weapons in the hands of 18-year-olds. it is madness. and greg abbott refuses, refuses to do even what his colleague in florida did, the right thing. >> well, greg abbott and governor ron desantis, you mentioned earlier, ask them, i would love to, another day has passed, they both have been invited on this show and like so many of their colleagues, they had declined our invitation. senator, thanks for joining us this evening. i appreciate it. coming up, our dear friend

1:36 am
1:37 am
i do think california said, for all of the people that said the democratic party is crazy far left, crazy far left, crazy far left, what yesterday showed was no, not really. if the democrats were smart, they'd say yeah, this is who we,
1:38 am
are we are more closer to the center of the country, the center of the party is more closer to the center of the country. >> the full impact of yesterday's primary results is still being determined, we might be witnessing a slight trend away from polarization, can you believe that, and not one, but both parties. on the democratic side, "the new york times" describes the california results this way. the choices seemed to signal a shift to the center likely to reverberate through democratic politics across the nation. as for the gop side, where five, five congressman who voted for a january 6th commission appeared to have survived their primaries, "politico" points out, quote, the most part, republicans who crossed trump were not suffering for their infidelity. with us tonight, two of our favorites, msnbc contributors maria teresa kumar, and michael steele, the former chairman of the republican national committee and former lieutenant
1:39 am
governor of the state of maryland. maria, you heard matthew dowd, is the democratic party more centered than people realize or more centered than democrats, excuse me, republicans would want you to realize. >> i think what we saw is san francisco last night, was confidence unfolding and democrats saying we want confidence and not because he was promoting bail bonds, bail bond reform, because that happened in houston, to great welcome, and it was more that he wasn't able to fix what people wanted, and that is this idea of feeling secure when you go outside, not to be mugged, to clean up the city and the basic things that wasn't happening in san francisco that the voters got fed up. this is also a recall election before the board of education was not meeting the moment that people were wanting kids in schools and talking about something completely off the books. it is an understanding that the majority of americans are
1:40 am
reasonable, they want to function, a funning government that they feel safe in, that their kids are back in school, and at the same time, looking at ways to explore creatively solutions that address the broken pieces of our government. but it is not either or. and what we saw in san francisco was someone with either, we do this or we do this and no-no, we need you to do at minimum this. >> and that is san francisco you can talk about. what about l.a.? karen vas, is highly confident and rick caruso is the guy there. >> i think the same thing. that i mean if anything, there was the head of law enforcement in l.a., had a couple of missteps and they're still saying no, we want you to continue this modernization. and it wasn't that karen bass is not coming in a close second, it is more of a realignment and i encourage people to see what we're seeing not just in california but houston, we have hidalgo, incredibly progressive
1:41 am
but he helicopter, did but he kept the city of houston safe and he will go on to re-election and it is again a matter of competent and get the seat and karen has been able to demonstrate seats in the house of representative, and now it is a case of where will she be able to do it in l.a.? i don't see a contest. because again, the person running there, yes he is a former republican but he is independently minded, and is going on as a democrat. >> mr. steele, what do you think? >> well, i appreciate the very fine analysis from my friend, but i think it does speak to a -- >> a very fine analysis but i'm going to disagree with you. >> well, i'm about to blow that up, because the reality of it, i love maria, but the reality of it is, you got, look, i look to california and i look at l.a., and i look at san francisco, and
1:42 am
what i see is a straight that recognizes, citizens recognizing that when you're looking at issues around crime and economics and things like that, they want people who can get things done, they are looking for a more grounded approach, and dealing with the police, the narrative, i think there's still a little bit of that narrative lingering out there. with defund the police, and things like that, that sort of, well, not preeminent, still kind of rattles a lot of the electorate, and so what you see is a nation that i think, you know, is again, i've been saying this forever, a center right nation and center left friends would disagree with that but what it means is there is a center space, right, that the american voter is looking for in these elections and when they don't see it, they don't hear, it and especially if they don't feel it, if they don't feel that, to maria's point, that you're dealing with crime, that you're dealing with the concerns we have in our community,
1:43 am
they're going to make that change, and i'm not going to, i'm not going to build too much into that, and say all right, well, there's this national shift all of a sudden, but i think there's some lessons that can be learned by democrats there, and republicans, about the kind of candidate that the voters are going to be looking forward to, or looking for, in these upcoming elections, which will make the general, stephanie, really, really interesting, when you're looking at someone like a karen bass, and caruso in california, because that will give you a better sense of the final direction people really want to go into. not that karen bass is some flaming progressive little person. but it will be interesting to see how she counter narratives a little bit off of caruso's law and order kind of approach. i give you new york. we just saw this narrative play out in new york. >> she said we had to meet the moment and address the issues that the police department were having in a way that addressed
1:44 am
safety and modernization and i think that speaks to understanding the fundamental issue that if you are in l.a. or sadly san francisco that you are not feeling safe and that you have to address, this and that is responsible politicians. and being responsible public servants. >> michael, look a little further ahead for me, ron desantis over the weekend, in a conservative straw poll beat out trump, but ron desantis, that is just another version of trump. the same thing that you're talking about, democrats, could they see forward to have a more centrist candidate, what about republicans? do you see a lane for this liz cheney type character forging ahead? you have five republican congressmen who supported a january 6th committee, they survived last night. trump don't like that. >> yeah, no, i think that actually is very telling in some very interesting ways. so i've said for a while, there has always been a lane for the liz cheney, larry hogan type of
1:45 am
republicanism, the question is how do they then begin to navigate, how do they set it in motion? i think what we're seeing from some of these primary results is the beginning of the the comfortable stones on that pathway, right? so when you're looking at someone like desantis, who is just a dressier, a more suave and deboneer versioning of of the trump man, he is going to try to get out there and play that line that will keep the trump voter in play but the problem is for him, someone like donald trump and while he hitched so much with trump and he tries to do that unlike the other candidate, he is not going to find out necessarily to his benefit. it creates an opportunity for the liz cheney's to play off of him and to play against him, because he's already been out, he announced, trying to distance trump, and when trump gets mad at him, and trump is not feeling
