1:00 pm
the insurrection has created chaos at the capitol, but they also re-cavity in the city of washington, d.c.. d.c. mayor browser joins me live with her take on the january 6th hearings. plus, i caught up with chloe and holly bailey, and we talked about everything from their biggest inspirations to juneteenth and, you know i had to ask about the queen bee. you do not want to miss this.
1:01 pm
at the juneteenth, y'all, and happy father's day. i'm simone sanders, and i've got something to say. we're looking ahead to the next january 6th hearings and beyond to the former donald trump's potential prosecution. but before we dive in i have a little bit of a disclaimer. i know some of y'all may be frustrated. frustrated at how winding the path to accountability is, and how long it takes to travel it, but even if donald trump is not charged. if he escapes all consequences, these hearings will not have been in vain. this week marks the 50th anniversary of watergate. it seemed like a standard burglary led to the first and only resignation of the u.s. president. richard nixon. but it didn't happen overwrought night, y'all.
1:02 pm
it took years of federal hearings and exhaustive journalism to finally uncover how deep the corruption went. though he resigned, nixon never faced charges. he was actually pardoned by his successor. but thanks to efforts to hold him accountable, history remembers what he did. even half a century later, history remembers. the january 6th committee is pursuing that same fate for donald trump. most recently, they've been focusing on his pressuring vice president mike pence to dismiss certified electoral votes. >> with the president wanted, the vice president to do, was not just wrong. it was illegal and unconstitutional. president trump was told repeatedly that mike pence lacked constitutional and legal authority to do with president trump was demanding he do. >> just like nixon, it is my hope that one day donald trump will be held accountable, but the threat to democracy will in
1:03 pm
fact continue. someone is going to pick up where he left off and a new fight will emerge, but in the sea of disinformation and distractions, facts are weapons. questions are crucial. truth really is power. speaking of truth and asking questions, abc's capitol hill correspondent allie raffa is here with the latest on tuesday's january 6th committee hearing, and what we can expect throughout the week. okay, ali. what do we need to know about all of the hearings this week and how they play into the panels overall investigation? >> january six committee members were really all over the sunday shows this morning. -- what we could expect to see in the panels next two hearings on tuesday and thursday of this week. a committee member saying we should expect to really dig deeper into former president trump's pressure campaign on state officials to help him overturn the election. listen here. >> we will show evidence of the
1:04 pm
presidents involvement in this game. we will also again show evidence about why his own lawyers came to think about this game. we will show courageous officials who stood up and said they wouldn't go along with this plan to either call the -- back into session. or decertify the results for joe biden. >> we know things this weekend that we didn't know last weekend. >> among those expected to testify on tuesday, a georgia secretary of state brad raffensperger and his deputy, jay sterling, those are both conservative republicans which supported trump in the 2020 election and then refused to do his bidding after that now infamous phone call a few days before the attack on the capitol on january 6th, and which former president trump asked raffensperger to find the votes, plus one vote that would get him over the top passed by his vote total in the state of georgia. this was really among the strongest stance we saw from
1:05 pm
republicans against former president trump after the election. of course we learned so much more this past week about former vp mike princess pressure that he faced from the former president. tuesday's hearing is really the next platform the committee has to prove what they say was an intent by the former president and his legal team and allies to overturn the results of the election after he was repeatedly told by those in his inner circle that it was unconstitutional and illegal. the big question when all of these hearings are over is, will they face criminal charges? that's really a question that only attorney general merrick garland can answer, some. >> we know he is watching. abc is -- nbc's allie raffa, thank you for breaking it down. as ali said, these hearings have potential consequences. they've introduced more legal questions in the bar exam. we have a legal panel with us to cut through the noise. glenn kirschner is here. is a former federal prosecutor and msnbc legal analyst. and david coren is also with
1:06 pm
us. he's the washington bureau chief for mother jones. welcome, welcome to you both. >> glenn, i want to start with you. because, one of the key challenges for the committee, and frankly for the justice department to pursue a colonel case against trump, would in fact be proving that he knew his claims about the 2020 election were false. we know that donald trump is already laying the groundwork to make it hard to prove intent. he's got this statement that i won't even go into. basically, he blasted the committee and he again repeats election fraud fantasies. can you explain to folks at home why intent is important? and if you think the committee has addressed that? >> intent is clearly important to prove, because you need to prove that somebody not only engaged in a criminal act, but they didn't engage in it mistakenly or by accident. it was a company by corrupt intent. i tell you, --
1:07 pm
know when i ever prosecuted in years announced i engaged in a criminal act and have criminal intent. that's not how this works. there is so much evidence from which a jury could infer, that's how you prove intent, in for donald trump's corrupt intent. i mean just look at -- in public reporting and courtesy of the j 6th public hearings. we know donald trump recruited the insurrectionists. he said stand back and stand by. await further orders. he set the date for the capitol attack. january 6th will be wild. you launched the capitol attack by jimmy ainge up his angry mob and sending them to the capitol. get down here, fight like hell or you won't have a country anymore. stop the certification. he used the word steel. everybody knew, including him, there was no steel, which -- evidence for his corrupt intense. he then sat there for three hours and refused to call off
1:08 pm
his attack and refused to send reinforcements to protect the capital, saying instead, maybe they are right. maybe mike pence should be hanged. this does not involve subtle or nuanced questions of criminal intent. it just does not. donald trump -- needs to be held accountable. >> i think a lot of people out there would agree with you, glenn. david, let me bring you into the conversation. the question of if the former president is held accountable really does arrest with the justice department, but as i said at the top of the show, i think the committee is where it matters, even if donald trump is not indicted. could you talk about the importance behind what we are seeing go down on capitol hill with or without an indictment? >> as a historian and journalist i appreciated your remarks. one thing that needs to happen is the truth needs to be served. there was a mistake made during
1:09 pm
the russia scandal. -- we thought robert would do everything. -- it was moments job, as glen knows, as a special counsel and prosecutor, to find criminal cases. not to give the american public the full story. it was at his job? it was not when he was paid to do. he put out a report that covered a lot, but it was not the full narrative. congress never took up that job. but the j six committee and what they're doing in this instance is that. this is for the public. this is not to decide whether to prosecute trump or not. the other day they could recommend prosecution, but they don't have to do it one way or the other. they are serving the truth, putting out information and merrick garland is watching. that's why we know more now than we did before, and we are seeing the faces. we will see brad raffensperger testify about this amazing event. the president of the united
1:10 pm
states calling up and saying, i need you to find 11,000 more votes. just one more than he needed to win. right? to me, you can infer intent. from that, he wasn't saying please take a look. i think there was a problem here. let's take it to the bottom of this. he was saying finally the exact numbers of votes i need. or you might be in trouble, is when he added. that seems corrupt at its core. otherwise, i do think there was a lot of complexity to bringing a case against donald trump. you have to wonder if the case was -- and he managed to be acquitted, what that would mean for our political discourse. >> i want you all to listen to congressman jamie raskin. in this sound, he's talking about trump's ongoing lack of remorse in the time since the insurrection. take a listen. >> yeah, he essentially said, yes i did it. i would do it again. which is what we've been
1:11 pm
contending all along, that if you allow impunity for attempts at unconstitutional caesars of power, which is with crew is, then you're inviting it again in the future. >> i've been saying all along that donald trump has never done anything in secret. he's been doing this right before our eyes. why, and first to you blend, then you david. why hasn't -- why has it taken so long for us to essentially care about it? >> i think we've cared for very long time. it's taken a long time to get to the point of where we now have public hearings, and we are getting to see and assess the evidence for ourselves with our own eyes. i do think representative raskin is spot on. i think in the recent speech that donald trump gave an tennessee, not only does he not show remorse, but he was mocking mike pence, calling him names like, a conveyor belt and
1:12 pm
a robot. mindlessly certifying the elections results. mind you, in accordance with the law and the constitution, and symone, if the department of justice declines -- donald trump for these crimes, what they are doing is giving permission to whoever the republican nominee is in 2024 to do it all over again, and then some. they would be endorsing this conduct as not criminal. not punishable. i don't think a republican survive another four years of what we've just been through. >> david, your last word? >> i agree. i do think the main problem here is not with the justice department does. it doesn't -- tens of millions of americans by donald trump's con. they're still with them. the j 6th committee is not about changing peoples minds,
1:13 pm
not at least on that side of the aisle. we are such a divided country that even when the president sits back and does nothing while these -- while the capitol is being assaulted. it's happening in front of everybody's eyes. it's still not enough to turn off those tens of millions of trump supporters. we are in a pretty deep hole here in terms of political culture. the g6 committee is scratching at the surface, but there is a long way to go. >> glenn kirschner, david coren, my thanks to you both. coming up, washington d.c. is going -- browser is going to weigh in on the toll of the insurrection in her community. we are going to get into strategies for combatting crime, because policing is just one part of that picture, and we are going to talk about leading in a pandemic. first, my colleague gigi stone weight is here today with the other top stories. >> gigi? >> thanks, simone. here are some of the stories we are watching at this hour. swimming, international

1:19 pm
table here in the studio. it looks like you understood the assignment today. you're wearing green. let's get right to. it we've often talked about the consequences that the nation has faced and how the nation has suffered due to the insurrection, but there is a community beyond the capitol. i'm wondering if you could talk about the implications of the insurrection of the people of the district. >> first of all, we watched in horror. i had the opportunity to warn our residents to stay away from the capitol during that time, because we knew that the president was unpredictable. he directed a mob of people to go to the capitol building to stop the peaceful transition of power. and we know with that has done to our nation and our democracy. and for us, it impacted a police officer who were called to the capital to support the united states capitol police. we know officers were hurt.
1:20 pm
people died. and they're still suffering from the trauma of that day. we know, two, that offense had to be erected around our capitol building. for somebody like me who grew up in washington, it's used to having free access to the capitol building. the beacon of democracy to the rest of the world -- it hurt our nation and its sense of hope and belief in the democracy. but it also sent a message across the world. >> you've been watching the january 6th hearing. >> i've seen some of them. >> it's my understanding that the committee did not call you to testify. is that correct? >> i've given testimony to the committee. >> you've given testimony? >> interviews. >> interviews. i'm wondering if you could illuminate for the audience some of what you shared with the committee. it strikes me that you are someone who's going toe to toe with donald trump for a number of times.
1:21 pm
you were a key player when it came to that day and the insurrection, helping get assistance to the united states. >> absolutely. i think the committee was just seeking to know what happened and with the timelines were. we could tell them about the decision-making at the white house and at the pentagon. and we were certainly able to do that. during that day, i was an our police headquarters with the chief of police. with our agency director and other decision makers. when we realize the united states capitol police would not be able to withhold people who were bent on storming the capitol. so the united states capitol police force is set up to deal with civil disobedience. and what we saw that day was certainly a riot. >> absolutely. i want to turn to talk about what you're doing here in washington, d.c.. he recently announced a black home ownership strikeforce? this is a myth expanding black
1:22 pm
homeownership. how do you think this could be a blueprint for other cities across the country. as we know homeownership is an issue and the people in the district are dealing with this. it's an american issue. >> affordability is the issue. i had a couple of years ago to lead a housing task force for the national -- cities. there were big cities, small towns, all dealing with various aspects of affordability. so if you are in this town, people want to live here. businesses are starting here. that has put a lot of pressure on home costs. we want to make sure that more people of all incomes can afford to live and washington, d.c.. i've invested a lot in building affordable housing. over a billion dollars and seven years. 36,000 units by 2025. unlike most places, we actually have goals for every single neighborhood. we want watching tony -- to be able to experience in every neighborhood. equalizing black home ownership
1:23 pm
is a huge part of that. just over a third of black washingtonians own homes. >> one third. >> one third. over 50% of white washingtonians do. we know that's how black people in d.c. have built their wealth. that's how i bought a house for $125,000.20 years ago. that's allowed me to do so many other things in my life. we want people to be able to start where they are and take advantage of programs. my strikeforce will give me a set of recommendations that helps us equalize those numbers by 2030. >> i want to turn and talk about the pandemic, mayor. there have been more than 150,000 covid cases in the district. that cdc recently announced that they have endorsed shots for children under five years old. i know you have a four-year-old daughter. i'm wondering, do you plan to get your daughter vaccinated? >> she will be vaccinated. she will be vaccinated by her

to give into donald trump's election lies, is the focus of tuesday's january six committee hearings. specifically, folks are keying in on georgia secretary of
1:40 pm
state, brad raffensperger. and specifically, the call we know then president trump made to him urging him to quote, find some votes that would make trump when the state of georgia. -- one of the witnesses appearing on the committee on tuesday. and the committee is also expected to address donald trump's alleged involvement in creating bogus slates of electors to overturn the 2020 election. thankfully, that the scheme that failed. without our political -- path are elena beverley is the former national deputy director of african american outreach are present obama, and the host of our mayers podcast. hugo lowell is a congressional reporter of the guardian, and sure michael singleton is a contributor to the boston globe, and the host of a show right here on msnbc's peacock, screen. jerry folks, let's get in the -- these hearings are led into the
1:41 pm
january six committee, but january 2nd and the focus obviously is the sex, but the second is actually probably just as important as january six. because that's when donald trump place that call to secretary of state brad raffensperger. and he also recorded it which is key. here is what former white house special counsel norm eisen, had to say about the upcoming testimony. take a listen to this. >> i think we're gonna meet raffensperger, he could well be av john d. of these tiktok era watergate hearings. >> now it's important to note that john d., richard nixon's and nixon's attorney who turned on him during watergate. and nixon ended up resigning. now all that being said, sure michael would you agree that raffensperger could be the john dean of january six? >> now, not in this political climate, symone, you will get participation like you did at that time which eventually
1:42 pm
cave. we've elections only months away, republicans are likely gonna regain control of the house, and i can guarantee you this will be shut down, unless the justice department decides to form some kind of -- former president. i don't think much is gonna happen, and if the former president decides to run, as you stated on my show on screen share, they may decide not to involve themselves, they may not want to be perceived as being overtly political. >> we will all be watching on tuesday. i know we're gonna continue to talk about it, right now i want to switch gears because -- you can look at your phony more without seeing a headline, a tweet, a push notification about the economy. and this morning, treasury secretary janet yellen, had this to say, i want people to listen up to this. >> clearly, inflation is unacceptably high, it's president biden's top priority, and -- powell has said that his goal is to bring inflation while maintaining a strong labor
1:43 pm
market. that's gonna take skill and luck, but i believe it's possible, i don't think a recession is inevitable. >> i want to talk about the politics of this. secretary yellen, is pretty confidently saying that we're not on the brink of a recession. now i'd like to remind folks, before she in the administration, i worked, there said that inflation was transient. and we do all know how that ended. so, hugo, is this a risk that the administration is taking here, or are they bullish because the administration and secretary yellen knows something that we don't know? >> i think it's exactly that. i think what's clear though, is that people are thinking about inflation, they're thinking about cassava gazprom, -- administration priority it's difficult to say right, whether the treasured moments are gonna impact inflation going into the
