tv   The Reid Out  MSNBC  September 12, 2022 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT

4:00 pm
tomorrow. i wanted you to know about it. it's an interview we're looking forward to. "the reidout" with joy reid is up next. tonight on "the reidout" -- >> i think there's also a question about why trump's lawyers apparently were so misleading potentially lying in the affidavit saying they returned all the information. i think there's a difference between playing a lawyer on tv and actually having good legal counsel. >> ouch. scathing remarks from mike pence's former chief of staff, as those very lawyers now claim that trump's stashing of highly classified documents at mar-a-lago is nothing more than a storage dispute. >> plus, new reporting tonight from "the new york times" on an escalation of the justice department's criminal probe of january 6th. including 40 new subpoenas. >> also, she's the woman who defeated sarah palin in alaska, giving hope that democrats can hold on to their house majority.
4:01 pm
mary peltola who takes her seat in congress tomorrow, joins me tonight. >> we begin on the 60th anniversary of john f. kennedy's historic moonshot speech announcing his goal of putting a man on the moon and bringing him home. today, president joe biden announced new steps in his own moonshot vision, ending cancer as we know it, a cause he's truly passionate about since the passing of his son beau. >> we face another inflection point, and together, we can choose to move forward with unity, hope, and optimism. i believe we can usher in the same unwillingness to postpone, the same nation purpose that will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills. to end cancer as we know it and even cure cancers once and for
4:02 pm
all. >> and while biden was busy presidenting, his predecessor surprised everyone today, returning to d.c. looking a bit disheveled, apparently to play golf at his course in virginia. the golfing field trip comes as donald trump's legal team is doubling down on their claims that the twice impeached disgraced apparent document thief has every right to the classified stash he held at mar-a-lago and opposing the justice department's request for continued access to those 100 or so classified documents seized during the fbi search so that they can continue their investigation. in a filing this morning, trump's legal team picking up marco rubio's talking points, called this whole situation simply a document storage dispute that has spiraled out of control. claiming the government is wrongfully seeking to criminalize the possession of the 45th president of his own records. classified documents do not belong to any president and are in fact the property of the united states. especially when they relate to national security affairs.
4:03 pm
and for the first time in any of their court filings, trump's legal team is questioning whether the classified documents are even classified at all. they write the government stance assumes if a document is a cloisification marking, it remains classified, irrespective of actions taken during president trump's term in office and that the government has not proven these records remain classified. that issue is to be determined later. they even have an entire section entitled, the president has the power to declassify documents. you know what's missing? any assertion trump did in fact declassify anything. perhaps they have the legal spartz to know there are criminal penalties if a lawyer lies to a court. even if everything at mar-a-lago was declassified, which it wasn't, that would not change the potential violations of the three criminal statutes listed on the fbi search warrant. that is because, wait for it, not only are classified documents america's property, so are all of every president's
4:04 pm
records. they literally have to request them from the national archives to put them in their own museums and libraries. so again, all of this theater by trump and his lawyers, it's just another attempt to delay. which sure is looking like a looming indictment. don't take my word for it. listen to ty cobb, who represented trump during the investigation into the russia scandal. >> what do you think the possibilities are of an indictment of former president trump? >> i think they're very high. having classified documents, particularly if you are actively using them, could be an offense well worthy of prosecution. >> sure. >> well worthy of prosecution. >> joining me is charles coleman jr., civil rights attorney, former prosecutor and msnbc legal analyst, and harry lipman, former deputy assistant attorney general, l.a. times legal columnist, and host of the talking feds podcast. harry, do you agree with ty cobb? >> yeah, interestingly, ty cobb is saying that the indictment will likely go from emerge from january 6th.
4:05 pm
we have been generally sort of separating them out and people have been focusing on whether the documents themselves would lead to an indictment. but certainly, nothing he said today, you put your finger right on the filing where he said, well, the government says they're classified. but how do we know what that means? of course, that's what it means, to classify something, the government says. or i have this power to declassify, as you say, it screams the question, well, did you or didn't you? the judge is supposed to decide this by thursday and has not, as yet, called for a hearing, which would be a pretty obvious step to do so you can just ask the lawyers who obviously do, as you say, want to avoid criminal liability. well, did he or didn't he? how about telling us? as of now, though, it's on the papers and he's disputed everything, making -- giving her no easy out. she's going to have to decide between two diametrically opposed positions. >> since you served in justice,
4:06 pm
i want to ask you to clarify for us one more time. we have said it over and over on the show. when a president's term ends, under the presidential records act, who owns all of their documents? not just the classified ones, all of them? >> yeah, even when he's there, look, he is donald trump, a former president. another term for that is citizen. that's all he is. he has some access, as you said, with special kinds of procedures which show how wrong he is here to maybe send somebody and be able to take a picture of something, but it's so clear, really, you have seen nobody anywhere on any side of the aisle dispute the proposition these are not his. they belong to the country and the people. and that's even leaving aside the small set of very dangerous documents that he now is trifling with. >> charles coleman, the challenge here, except for marco rubio, who claims it's a storage issue, i don't know of any
4:07 pm
provision, and listen, i'm not a lawyer. but i doubt that it says that presidents are allowed to store their records either at the national archives or at their house. i doubt that there is anything in the law that says you can store them at the white house and leave them in the national archives or you can take them, i don't know, to bedminster. that isn't a thing. and so i feel like there isn't an argument here. donald trump did not have the right to have those records period, and now we have, and look, we don't know what was in the boxes but it's not like trump only goes to mar-a-lago. there is this daily mail video of him heading off to bedminster with boxes. we don't know what's in the boxes. but he moves around to different places. today, he's in d.c. in his golf shoes. this guy could go anywhere, and the government for more than a year, for 18 months, did not have access to the property of the federal government because he took things and hid them. i fail to understand how that is not just an open and obvious
4:08 pm
crime, putting aside what he did when it came to january 6th. >> well, joy, i think you're absolutely right. there is not an exception for any of this in the presidential records act, which i have read from front to back, and it doesn't exist. the trump jury team or the trump legal team, rather, is trying to invent an argument when one doesn't exist. that's creative lawyering and being kind in terms of how i'm describing it at best. you don't have a legal pathway to excuse what we have seen here. donald trump has broken the law with the possession of these documents, full stop, period. i think it's important to understand however that even if there was a question or a dispute as to his ability to have these documents, the timeline makes very clear that he was in violation of these things and had been informed that he was in violation of these things, and he never during the course of the back and forth between the national archives as well as between the department of justice, prior to the execution of the search
4:09 pm
warrant, made the argument that either these documents had been declassified or that he had considered these documents his personal property. so because of that, to now come with that sort of argument in front of the judge is not only disingenuous but it flies of not having any logic, reason, or base in law or fact. >> and except in front of this judge. apparently this is the one judge in the country who thinks maybe there is. harry, let's go to the other thing, because ty cobb is sort of blending and there's so many crimes, potential crimes i should say, its are hard to keep track of everything, but january 6th remains there. you have lots of people, high level people in things like the proud boys and oath keepers who are charged with seditious conspiracy. very difficult crimes. so subpoenaing 40 different trump allies seems like a pretty significant step for a justice department that had been accused by some, and even annoyed some people on the january 6th commission, of moving really slowly. this does not feel like moving
4:10 pm
really slowly. >> yeah, i think that acquisition has been put to bed. it's not just 40. it's who the 40 are. they include just a lot of low level people who were around trump. their only value to the government, but it's a huge value, is to say here's what he did, what he said. by the way, these are not the sort of people who could ever claim attorney/client privilege. they're not attorneys or executive privilege. they're really just there to kind of serve the king. but they have eyes, they have ears, and that makes them very potent witnesses against him. and this question, tell us about what he did and what he said on january 6th itself. >> you know, and charles coleman, i put them all together. sort of there's sort of an expansive scandal here that all goes back to donald trump's belief that he is a sort of king, that he doesn't have to follow the presidential records act or the rules about what happens to the documents that belong to the presidency after he leaves. he doesn't have to do any of that, doesn't have to give them
4:11 pm
back kwh he's subpoenaed and told more than once to give them back. and you know, maggie haberman has reporting out that trump at a certain point said i'm just not going tleev. i'm not going to leave. and i remember saying this, i think i once was on bill maher and he said it, people suspected he would chain himself to the resolute desk and refuse to leave. now we have reporting that he said i'm not going to leave. i'm not going anywhere. how can you leave when you won an election? i don't know, ask al gore. i mean, you leave because your term is over and the electoral college says good-bye. what do you make of just -- i feel like they all fit into a piece. do you? >> i had this conversation -- i had this conversation a number of times before the outcome of the 2020 election because everything that we had seen from donald trump up until that point suggested he had already considered the possibility that he might not necessarily win,
4:12 pm
and he gave himself particularly in public conversation a window of opportunity to basically allow for him to basically not participate in the peaceful transfer of power. so i told people who i was close to, be prepared for this man to pull something that does not result in him sort of simply leaving office and riding off into the sunset. i think it's important to understand when you're trying to peddle a particular narrative, consistency is key. we have seen consistency from donald trump about him sort of not being in the way of moving with the law, moving with the constitution, moving with the will of the people of america for a very, very long time. and that is something that we're now seeing from his lawyers, with respect to them inventing arguments about the law and his ability to do things he should not be able to do, that he is not legally able to do in their filings because they're consistently peddling a certain narrative that gives him powers, that gives him abilities, that takes away obligations that he's
4:13 pm
supposed to have as the former president of the united states, and that he's not supposed to have as a regular citizen. this is consistent with selling the narrative that they need the public to buy in order for him to maintain some semblance of support. >> harry lipman, michael cohen has speculated that essentially this is all about power. that donald trump essentially sees himself as the forever president. it all kinds of fits. he still refers to himself as the president. he puts out statements with his presidential number on it, and there are his supporters who refer to him as president on other networks and on podcasts, et cetera. if you're a prosecutor looking at his behavior, do you then start to marry his refusal to leave the white house to his willingness to foment an insurrection in order to undo the results of the election and allow the peaceful transfer of power and his after that saying well, i'm just going to take my records that are mine, that belong to me, classified or not, and take them to my house because this is now the white house.
4:14 pm
it feels like one narrative to me. i think you can't separate january 6th from what he did with those records. >> yeah, i totally agree with you. it's just the sort of essential trumpian sin of everything is mine. there's no such thing as a public interest. there's only the trump interest. i just want to say one thing about haberman, that's a bombshell that charles was just mentioning. but she also has in there him shortly after the election acknowledging that he lost, feeling abashed. sorry, guys, what did i do wrong? you want to marry something to the insurrection, that, the knowledge that he's lost, really married up with what he did to try to stay in power paints a very strong picture for our prosecutor of criminal conduct. >> indeed. amen. we shall see how this works out. charles coleman, harry lipman, thank you both. >> up next on "the reidout," voter registrations are surging all across the country, especially among women. what it all means with the midterms just eight weeks away.

4:20 pm
democracy. two key factors have played into the shifting winds. republican extremism and abortion. in june, the select committee made clear to the american public just how far donald trump and his republican allies were willing to go on overturning the free and fair election of joe biden. utilizing any means necessary, including violence. during a speech in philadelphia earlier this month, president biden highlighted that extremism, as he went after maga republicans for their threats to democracy. now, according to a new reuters poll, a bipartisan majority of americans agree with biden that trump's movement is undermining democracy. 58% including one in four republicans said trump's make america great again movement is threatening america's democratic foundations. the other key factor has been the supreme court's decision to roll back reproductive rights. that decision has led to a surge in women registering to vote.
4:21 pm
since that ruling, women have outpaced men in new voter registrations by 11 percentage points in ohio, 12 points in pennsylvania, and 15 points in wisconsin. in georgia, the margin was sibs points. in north carolina, seven points. lauren leader who tracks this data made a clear point about a demographic that helped deliver democrats the majority in 2018. >> we're seeing that shift left, that shift towards democrats among independent women. they're more likely to say democrats reflect their values. care about people like them, and that's all really important, especially in battleground states where those independent women have an outsized role to play. >> tom, you're a democratic political strategist and ceo of target smart who compiled data about women voters wrote in my 27 years analyzing elections i have never seen anything like what happened in the past two months in american politics. women are registering to vote in numbers i have never witnessed.
4:22 pm
i have run out superlatives to describe how different this moment is. and tom joins me now. it's great to talk with you. thanks for being here. i wonder if you can give me the balance here. we know women are registering to vote, i hear it anecdotally, i see it around people i know, and people are fired up to vote. what's the balance on how much of that is fear for democracy and how much of that is roe? >> it's impossible to ascribe an exact number to one or the other. you're right, these are two significant factors. as you said, even earlier this year, pre-dobbs, we saw republicans underperforming, but we were still expecting a red wave election because of the history of midterm elections and all of the structural advantages the republican party had. but what we have seen is since the dobbs decision was handed down on june 24th, massive surges in women registering to vote with kansas leading the way, seeing this astounding 40% gender gap which really drove the pro-choice victory in that
4:23 pm
state last month. which surprised i think all of us. now, as we look at these other states and as you can see here, significant advantages, all that have developed since that dobbs decision. i really think it's a combination of both that have got us to this point where we have to be questioning whether or not this red wave really will happen. >> it's funny because we talk about this on our 11:00 call. we pour out hearts out on the show in the mornings. and i was saying i feel like the history narrative, that the tide always turns against the president in power, it ignores the fact that in '92, that didn't happen because there was a lot of anger about anita hill and clarence thomas. that defied it. it didn't happen in 2018. there was a lot of anger about kavanaugh and the allegations against him. nate cohen has this piece up where he says i'm skeptical. i feel like a lot of times the pollster world ignores the
4:24 pm
passions of women to their detriment sometimes. what do you think? >> you're right. we have seen this happen before in limited elections. the challenges that we're well aware of in polling is polling is at its best when elections look like previous elections. they're based on projections of turnout. we talk about likely voter models. it's based on who voted in previous elections. if the elections don't deviate too much from the norm, if there isn't a group of voters who are too fired up, then generally the polling will do okay. in this election and from what we're seeing in this voter registration data and other data, it's clear that women are more fired up to vote in this election than they have been in any election in quite a long time, if not ever, for a midterm election. and so it makes the polling very challenging in terms of constructing a likely voter model that's accurately going to harness that turnout, that energy and enthusiasm. >> it's funny. back when i used to work in the
4:25 pm
election side of the campaign world, the question that used to define how things were going to go is cares about people like me. that used to be the thing we cared more about than anything else and likelihood of voting because it's about passion and thinking the person is on your side. i know in that '04 era, people who wanted to ban gay marriage were passionate and in all these states, you drop that on the ballot, suddenly, that brought them to the polls. it's hard for me to conceive of a world in which banning -- getting rid of a right, we have never had that happen in my lifetime, that a right was taken away from half the population and that has to impact the election, right? like, women, even if they're not of cheeld bearing age, it's a shock, and younger women have always had this right. i wonder if we need to throw our old models out for 2022? >> we do, or at least we need to take the models with great big grain of salt. back to that remarkable result in kansas.
4:26 pm
that pro-choice position on the ballot doesn't pass without getting significant republican support. like you said, there are many -- it's not just democrats and independents. it was moderate republican voters who looked at this and said, i'm not okay with government taking away a fundamental right based on a 50-year supreme court precedent. >> and look, reverend sharpton has said this, i totally agree with him. there are hard core evangelical christians who are anti-abortion, who personally oppose it, but the idea of having six people decide that 2 something million people don't have any rights or that the states can control a woman's body is unacceptable even to them, people who don't even favor abortion. let me look at more of your data. you have mail-in requests in 2022. this is in georgia, indiana, illinois, maryland, new jersey, pennsylvania, wisconsin. mail-in became sort of the anathema to republican voters because trump said it's bad. but it looks like there is a
4:27 pm
commitment to using it, and that commitment is living in a lot of ways among women. your thoughts. >> that's right, and the interesting thing about this, and this is the first time we're sharing this data so it's exciting, is we're not just looking at voter registration now. believe it or not, even with eight weeks to go, some states are allowing voters to begin requesting their ballots. that's really our first, if we're looking at, well, does this surge in intensity and enthusiasm in voter registration come out in actual turnout, in these first states are actually showing that in almost all of those states, women are surging not only in registration but also in turnout. like you said, in some very key states like especially georgia. >> yeah, and let's not forget, the state that is the king of mail-in voting, florida. and it used to be how republicans used to win, and they have been like, it's a bad thing, but florida uses it. tom, please come back. thank you. >> still ahead, a sign of things to come, perhaps.

from a small fishing village on the river, five terms as a state legislator from bethel, eight years as chair of the bipartisan bush caucus for rural
4:33 pm
legislators, proud coast guard mom, leader of the river intertribal fish commission, working to protect alaska salmon. >> i'm the democratic woman who can win. >> that right there is mary peltola, and tomorrow, she will be sworn in as alaska's first democratic house member in nearly 50 years. as well as the first alaskan native to serve in congress. she's also the perfect example of why republicans should be nervous about november. after pulling off a stunning and historic upset defeating republican sarah palin and nick begich in the state special election. all three will be facing off again in november's midterms. this time, for a full two-year term. joining me now is congresswoman-elect mary peltola of alaska. i cancon gratulate you on air as i had a chance to do off air. it's exciting. you get sworn in tomorrow. what time? >> 6:30 eastern standard time, 10:30 p.m. alaska time. >> that is exciting. i can imagine -- i did ask you,
4:34 pm
i will ask you again, have you picked out an outfit. i know this is completely shallow. >> it is important because that seems to be what people talk about most. but yes, i do have a dress that i have worn. i wore it to my son's boot camp graduation from the coast guard. it's nothing new but it's comfortable. it's going to be a long day, so comfort is the key. >> we were talking about jesse ross, he won the week after you won, and it is exciting for indigenous people who are the first people of this nation, have so little representation in presidential administrations, there's one person. and in congress. so you're going to be the first alaskan native to actually represent your state. how is that feeling for you? >> well, i'm very proud of my yup'ik heritage, and it's noteworthy, and i think in response to your comment, i think there were hundreds of years of an effort to assimilate and erase native people. but we're tough. we're survivors, and i am also
4:35 pm
half white. my dad is from nebraska. he's german american. and so i carry that heritage with me as well proudly, and so i really want to emphasize, especially to alaskans, that i'm here to represent all alaskans no matter what your ethnic background is. >> you sound a little like barack obama. you come from these two worlds and you're able to merge them and you do that politically. we talk about the physical stamina you have to have to campaign in alaska. how strenuous was the campaign? >> it's a huge state. if you cut alaska in half, texas would be the third largest state in the nation. we're enormous. we have more coastline than the lower 48. we're just really big, and my campaign manager even noticed, he followed our campaign for a couple days on the road, and he said this is like a presidential campaign because you wake up in one town and at night you're 900
4:36 pm
miles away, and you're in a completely different place. you can only get around by plane very often. it's big. it's grueling. >> representing the state means you have to continue to do that. you want to represent and see all these communities. we talked about the physical stamina that it's going to take to go through tomorrow. let's talk about the mental and emotional stamina it's going to take to be in a body where 129 people voted to overturn the election. there are insurrectionists there that are practicing the big lie every day. still lying about the election, still saying the president of the united states is not president. you beat sarah palin who is a very divisive figure, a very ultra maga figure. but the fact that you defeated her signaled to some people that maybe there's an exhaustion with that. do you think there's an exhaustion with that, and what are you sort of bracing yourself for in dealing with this congress? >> well, i do think there's an appetite for folks who want to bring people together and focus on the commonality. we all want good houses and good schools for our kids and jobs that pay a livable wage and
4:37 pm
healthy economy, healthy environment, social security. we all want those things. and i am very sensitive about the way in which maga people feel disenfranchised, forgotten, left behind. i think so many different segments of our population feel that way, and now caucasians are feeling that way. and men are feeling that way. so i think that really signals to us that across america, we have just got to do better at making sure that we're talking about how we're all in this together. a rising tide lifts all boats. we have a very diverse population, but we have a common future. and we're all in this together. one of the things i like to say is no american is my enemy. if you're an american, i want to work with you. you're my teammate. >> you're very generous to say that because there are some groups who have suffered much more greatly, i think, to be fair, and i think half of your heritage comes from that, and
4:38 pm
obviously, people of color have suffered much more. but the complaints on the other side, largely get down to the tact they didn't win an election, to be honest. i wonder what you make of building a political belief system around not accepting that sometimes you lose. you're now a politician. you're a politician. sometimes you lose. and there is a core refusal to accept that this one group of people can lose. isn't that dangerous? >> well, i just -- speaking for myself, i stay away from victim sounding messaging. i try to stay away from messages of fear and hate. i think that those are very lazy emotions. i think if we're going to get to a place where we're solving our problems, we need to set those to the side and really focus on the energy and the type of, you know, words and thoughts and energy and momentum that it takes to get to problem solving.
4:39 pm
and we can't start solving our problems unless we are not calling names, unless we are not impugning motives, in order to sit down and really get somewhere and negotiate, you have to bring the temperature down. and people have to not feel threatened. and i think that everybody needs to make sure that they can save face. and you know, you talk about one group having suffered more than another group. and i think that it's important in america that we're not trying to one-up each other on our level of suffering. every single being on this earth has a hard life. why should i have an easy life? everybody has a hard life. and yes, certain things have happened to different groups that other groups haven't had to face. but life is hard. >> i think that your philosophy fits perfectly with michelle obama says when they go low, we go high. you obviously go high. mary peltola,
4:40 pm
congresswoman-elect, we'll be watching. thank you very much. really appreciate you. congratulations. >> up next, we have major developments in putin's war as ukrainian forces report significant gains and russian officials try to find a way to describe this as anything other than a humiliating defeat. stay with us.

turning point in the war in ukraine, which has now lasted more than 200 days, ukraine has made an astonishing comeback, liberating large swaths of territory in the northeast. depicted by the blue areas you can see on this map. they claim to have pushed the russian military all the way back to the border in some areas. it's so bad that even russian pundits are admitting on state-run tv that their military is failing and that their country is in trouble. and dozens of municipal tep deputies are circulating a petition calling on putin to resign. russia's official position is they're regrouping. in retaliation, they are attacked critical infrastructure, knocking out the power in many cities. president zulinky said without light, without you, without water or without you, without you. without food or without you, without you. cold, hunger, darkness, and thirst are not as scary and deadly for us as your quote

friendship and brotherhood. more now from nbc news foreign correspondent meagan fitzgerald in kyiv. >> it's been two weeks exactly to the day since the ukrainians launched this counteroffensive. since then, ukraine's president zelenskyy saying they have been able to recapture some 2300 square miles of territory. this counteroffensive was launched in the southern part of the country, in the kherson region, but we're seeing significant advancements especially over the last several days in the northeastern part of the country, in the kharkiv region. there, zelenskyy says they have been able to take back dozens and dozens of towns and settlements in the area there. we're already seeing video from soldiers on the ground, of people in those areas rushing to the soldiers, thanking them for liberating them. many of these people living in russian occupied territory for months now. we have also seen in this region where the russian soldiers have retreated. of course, the russian defense ministry is saying they're not
4:47 pm
retreating, they're just redeploying their troops to the east, but this is certainly significant advancement we're seeing here by the ukrainians. meerm, all eyes on the zaporizhzhia nuclear plant, where positive news for the first time in several weeks. ukrainian officials, energy officials are saying they have been able to restore a second power line to this plant. of course, the concern here is increased shelling at any time could knock these plants -- these lines going to the plant off line. but at this point, there is some good news that the plant is being powered by two external lines. back to you. >> nbc's meagan fitzgerald, thank you so much. let's bring in yulia mendell, author of "the fight of our lives, my time with zelenskyy, ukraine's battle for democracy, and what it means for the world." thank you so much for being here. let's talk about this fight because it dufeel like the momentum is with the ukrainians.
4:48 pm
taking back from what i understand more territory than russia has taken in the last 200 days. what's behind -- what do you think is behind this change in momentum? is it failure on the russian side, a failure of will on their side, or triumph of will on the ukrainian side? >> first, let me say that we have retaken more territories that russia captured since april. this is a little bit different. and still it's ukrainian territories that we are taking back, and this is a huge celebration for ukrainians. but there are multiple reasons why russians are being defeated right now. and first of all, they do not have any motivation for this war. for you to know the ukrainian general staff now claims that around 53,000 of russian servicemen were, as they say, eliminated in this terrible russian invasion. this is a huge number, even for
4:49 pm
such a large army as russian army. but russian servicemen do not know why they're fighting and for what they're fighting on this territory. meanwhile, ukrainians are highly motivated, and i understand that everyone already is very tired in ukraine physically. but we stay with high morale bah we're fighting for our land, we're fighting for our families, homes, and for the values. we actually are fighting for our choice for the democracy. and this is very important. as i am explaining in my book, the fight of our lives, this is exactly the fight for our very existence. this is very important moment in our history. >> talk a little bit about president zelenskyy. you work withed for him. he's very good at the bad ass quotes, we will do this without food, without water, without lights, wut oil. we don't care. we just want you out. i thought that was an incredible quote. he has managed to evade --
4:50 pm
people i think early on would have assumed would be his capture or murder by russia and he stood up to them in a pretty incredible way. what is this guy like? >> well, not very fast question to respond. i have been working for him for 25 months, and when he declined leaving the country in that very important first day when we did not know how the world would continue with so many western countries really believed we would collapse. and zelenskyy said, i'm not going out. i wasn't surprised. i knew he would not leave the country, where the reason that i had been traveling with him to the war zone which was in donbas that russia invaded back in 2014 where many many times. and i saw how he, as the president, was traveling to the front line just to handshake
4:51 pm
with the show soldiers. he was returning back to the zone of shelling to stand with his soldiers. he was saying, as a leader, i need to stay with them, so that they understand that i'm not a coward, and i'm not running away and i have so many stories of these. i describe many of them in my book. so, i understood he understood that he's not the kind of person who leaves and in many ways, that's a super important reason for every ukrainian that contributes to the fact that we are now independent sovereign state, and that we are going to fight to the very end. look what he did. he united ukraine, and he united the whole civilized world around our battle for democracy. this is the -- this is absolutely important thing in our history, and now everyone knows that we are not victims. yes, we are targets for the russians, but you are not victims. we are fighters, and we will the be there to the very end.
