6:00 pm
nothing short of the planet's future is at stake. thank you all so much for joining us tonight. greatly appreciate your time and insights. coming up, on the second hour of eamonn, democracy fights back, how people around the world are holding those in power accountable. plus, my pillow, the dangerous conspiracy theorists, faces a growing list of legal problems. and the latest on the path of tropical storm ian as he -- let's get started. let's get started. on the show, we've been frank about the often bleak state of american democracy, from riders in the halls of our nation's capital, to elections deniers, using their elected positions
6:01 pm
of power to subvert the will of the american people. our democracy is being tested and strained time and time again, so i'm sure doesn't shock you to hear that according to a new nbc news poll, voters actually ranked threats to democracy as the most important issue facing the country today. and while that fear is warranted, democracy and justice have racked up some notable winds lately. in defiance of his long held nickname, teflon don, donald trump has found himself backed into a legal corner in recent weeks, facing mounting re-legal peril on three important france. in new york, the states attorney general has filed a civil lawsuit, accusing trump and trump -- of massive fraud. in georgia, the district county -- seems to be closing in on trump and his efforts to subvert the 2020 election there. and the department of justice investigation into classified documents, stored at mar-a-lago, secured a major win this week
6:02 pm
and a federal appeals court granted their request to resume reviewing those documents, reversing a trump appointed judges order. these developments commit a major move from the house, which this week pass the presidential election reform act, marking the first legislative effort by the federal government to avert another january 6th insurrection. now, the senate's version of that bill already has enough support to bypass the filibuster, forecasting a rare bipartisan victory to protect our democracy. and all of that has been happening at the riders themselves, those who actually carried out the attack on the capitol, are facing the consequences of their dangerous actions. in total, more than 850 people have now been arrested, more than 350 have been convicted. and we will learn more about that plot to overturn the election this week because the january six committee is resuming its public hearings after securing an interview with ginni thomas, who we should note, was allegedly involved in those efforts. >> we are interested in telling
6:03 pm
the big story, which is this is an organized, premeditated, deliberated hit against the vice president and the congress to overthrow the 2020 presidential election. >> so, demand for justice are not just taking place here at home, and we should keep an eye on what is happening around the world because across the globe, democracy is fighting back. the fight for freedom is fighting back. in russia, thousands of taken to the streets to protest putin's new military mobilization order and his ongoing invasion of ukraine. and perhaps this is his first major domestic challenge in how he has been conducting this war. and iran, protests over the death of 22 year old mahsa amini, detained by the countries morality police for allegedly not wearing her hijab properly, have rocked the nation. the demonstrations have exposed the raw anger amongst iranian women and others about their treatment by the regime. it marks an unprecedented
6:04 pm
willingness to defy the authoritarian government in iran. i am in no way saying that we are out of the woods and that democracy, more specifically, the fight against authoritarianism has been one, but both here and abroad, it continues to be challenged. it is also under threat and if this week has taught us anything, it is that all of this fighting and protesting might just lead, might just lead to some better days ahead. let's discuss this with the executive editor for news at new he is also an msnbc contributor. and a formal federal prosecutor and current legal affairs columnist for politico -- good have both of you with us. i will start with you. your reaction to the legal troubles piling up against the ex president. do you believe he will be held accountable? >> i certainly think that in the new york attorney general -- there is going to be some
6:05 pm
accountability there. the reason she is -- is that not only is there -- [inaudible] over 500 times. and that really is difficult. it means that the jury is going to be able to confer. [inaudible] answers would have been -- [inaudible] i really think -- [inaudible] i really think that the documents at mar-a-lago -- [inaudible] it really looks to me like -- [inaudible] >> david, speaking of the georgia case, the fallen -- has signaled donald trump himself could actually be called to testify in front of a special grand jury. look, this would obviously marked the first time the ex president has had to go on the record about his election subversion attempts.
6:06 pm
your thoughts on that? how pivotal would that be? >> i mean, the georgia case is unique in that you have a recorded phone call of then president trump demanding the georgia secretary of state find 11,000 votes, so he could win the state, basically the president asking a republican to change the vote. and the republican any state resisted it. so, i am thrilled you chose this topic because there are sort of signs of hope. that is the direct involvement of trump. -- that makes that very strong. and one other sort of positive thing on the mar-a-lago case. a trouble -- was overturned by this three judge panel from the 11th circuit. two of these three judges that overturned the lower court ruling were trump appointees also. that is a positive sign. there are many trump appointed judges, dozens of republican judges, who threw out trump's claims of election fraud in
6:07 pm
2020. it is a positive sign that again, to trump appointed judges, backed along with a third judge, and appointed judge by obama, said that the mar-a-lago investigation can go forward. and now the doj can use these hundred classified documents that are at the core of that case, to continue investigating. >> let me get your thoughts on that point that david brought up about the appealing, if you will, or the overturning of the judges decision, that allow the federal investigators to move forward with these documents. how significant is that? is the success of that appeal an example or an indication that the system is working as it is intended to, despite the hyper bipartisan atmosphere we are finding ourselves in in this country? >> i think it is. and i think the judges actions -- the special master, ironically, who was recommended by the trump team, also is a great
6:08 pm
sign that the system is working properly. i think if i was on trump's team right now, i would be looking for an off ramp, out of that special master process because -- no, you are not going to be able to -- from using the classified material. and to continue their criminal investigation. and the judge is getting right to the point and saying, to donald trump, -- make your claims now, put forward your evident now. -- or whether or not you think there is anything that was planted by the fbi. and so, ironically, he's in a situation where he needs to prove his claims in court or basically have to withdraw them and -- >> david, i want to ask you what the presidential election reform act that was passed by the house this week. as i mentioned, that pull a moment ago, americans recognize just how at risk our democracy is. what kind of message does this bill send? will it calm fears?
6:09 pm
because you have something like this that is moving in the right direction, and then you look at what is happening in north carolina. and the way that may work its way up to the supreme court. and a lot of people assess that that could undermine the very way we elect officials in this country. >> you are right and harvey more is very concerning, but i want to really praise conference. this is a bill that i think all democrats are now supporting and there are ten republicans. this would just codify what is widely known. the vice president doesn't choose who becomes president. this crazy theory that mike pence was supposed to single-handedly throw out the election results in 2020. that will be now clearly defined in federal law. and it is critical that this is being put forward now, before the mid times, you have biden signed that bill, because it will help prevent chaos has we saw this january 6th.
6:10 pm
norms aren't enough. democratic norms on enough. it's sad but it's the reality where in. and it's good to have the deadlocked congress, that is frankly failed to deal with so many major issues we face, agree on this and act. that is a big step forward there. and i am just trying to again, on a positive note, there is progress. congress needs to do more and this is a small step forward. i hope more laws that strengthen democracy will be enacted by congress. >> and it's great to see justice as we thought, already being served for those who physically stormed the capitol on january the 6th. what would it say about the broader idea of justice in america if once this is all over, the people highest up, who perhaps planned this, who incited this, managed to escape unscathed while the people who were duped into going there on the capitol, that day, other ones that pay the price? >> yeah, i think it's on the
6:11 pm
message that they have really good lawyers and a lot -- justice does not apply to you. i will say that i do think the justice department has hired a lot of -- we have a lot of people working on the case. and i am heartened to see that there has been some aggressive action. [inaudible] witnesses that are going before the grand jury, recent reports that there is actually a fight over privileged in the grand jury -- that's just a me that the justice department is doing what it can to move forward and to go after some of the people on a high level. >> david, let me shift gears to those images out of russia and iran, which is what i closed out my opening monologue with their. the citizens are showing amounts bravery by publicly defying authoritarian regimes. what is your reaction to what we are seeing out of those two
6:12 pm
countries? are there any broader global conclusions, lessons that we can learn here at home from what is being demonstrated on those streets in russia and iran? >> i think this is a sign of a really positive side of the digital age. what is happening in both countries is that the truth is getting, out information is getting into russian and iranian cities. iran and particular, they're trying to shut down the largest outage there in many years. in russia as well. so, you know, it's amazing that information is getting in. what's more amazing is, frankly, their bravery. any russian -- these men will likely be thrown into the russian army and sent to ukraine. and even far more brave, are the women in iran, who have just been so relentless, so courageous in challenging this regime. it has been so brutal for so long. again, it is amazing and inspiring. >> we will talk a little bit more about that in the show later on. thank you both so much for
6:13 pm
starting us off this hour. up next, the ultraconservative house republicans who want to take charge next year. but first, my friend richard louis is here with the headlines on her canyon. >> hey. a very good evening to you. we are continuing to track tropical storm ian as it heads towards florida. it is now generating winds of 60 miles an hour, according to the national hurricane center. the storm watch has been issued for the florida keys. the unexpected to produce heavy rain and flooding over jamaica and cuba before that. flash flooding and rainfalls also predicted across the florida keys, which could get as much as six inches of rain in some areas through tuesday. that storm is forecast to become a major hurricane in the eastern gulf of mexico. in the middle of the week -- but uncertainty about its long term track and it's intensity is higher than usual. you can see that on screen. ian would be the first hurricane to hit the florida peninsula since 2017. more ayman with ayman mohyeldin

right-wing right-wing house house freedom caucus freedom caucus wants to wants to make make a comeback a come back after the after the midterms, filled with the midterms filled with the likes of likes of jim jordan, tim matt gates marjorie jordan, marjorie taylor greene and other taylor greene and other conservative conservative kooks. cooks, the the caucus was at caucus was at the most the powerful most powerful moment in its moment in its history before history before trump when trump, when it held and it helped house i oust john listed house boehner for being too speaker john boehner for being too moderate.
6:18 pm
if you know anything about john boehner, he wasn't is not exactly known for being moderate. once trump came to power the caucus just wasn't as powerful. after all, trump would've likely have been a member himself he had if he had been in the house. but if republicans win the house in the midterms, freedom caucus once more power than they ever have had. take scott perry for example. he tried to overturn the results of the 2020 election and he is now lobbying to be the wait for chairman of the homeland security -- same jim jordan, that nut job is aligned to chair the house judiciary committee. including the one republican committee, john boehner would've rather poked his eye out to make jim jordan committee chairman. the current leadership has been much more likely to welcome people these extreme views. let's bring in the comedian host of the good liars, and aged generals, demanded democratic strategists. it's good have you both with
6:19 pm
this. listen jason, i follow you on instagram and you always terrify me and make me laugh. i'd say you scare me more than anything but how terrifying does joe's house judiciary chairman sound to jim jordan? that this guy would have anything to do with justice in power. >> it is a terrifying thought. honestly, the members of the freedom caucus right now, they've got to feel like they are a fringe group. scott perry like you said he actively tried to help donald trump delegitimized the 2020 election, making claims of voter fraud adjustment there. to the members have talked about qanon, which is like an adult believing in santa claus, which is fine, you can believe that if you want to believe that but i don't think those people should be in congress you know what i mean? marjorie taylor greene is there and she said on camera that she believes that hillary clinton had something to do with jfk junior dying, calling it a clinton murder says, the las vegas mass murder that killed
6:20 pm
60 people might be in a false flag operation. these are fringe people, and kevin mccarthy gives these fringe ideas his stamp of approval it's then going to be not just a fringe republican idea, it'll be mainstream republican idea if he gives it that approval. it's a dangerous game to play. >> aisha, to jason's point, it's a dangerous game to play. it's one thing to be in the minority and spread these dangerous lies but these people will have a major influence on policy. they will have a major influence on the functioning of our government. budgetary control to oversight to being able to investigate and it's just absolutely a scary moment to think that these not jobs will have this type of authority if in fact they retake the house? >> a man. thank you for calling them what they are. their complete crazies, they are not jobs.
6:21 pm
and all of this is so asinine. the fact that we would even be having a sane conversation right now about these conspiracy theories taking over our government is the problem. just look at how they did liz cheney for a minute. who by a democrat and any stretch of the information imagination, liz cheney ain't our girl for most issues. the way they completely terrorized her and thrown her under the bus simply because she said donald trump was wrong in this instance is really foretelling of what is to come. the republicans will sell their souls, they will literally put quote unquote a good peoples head on a spike in order to hold power, and i think it's ultimately gonna bite them in the bucket. at some point, somehow is gonna figure out whether it's kevin mccarthy or others, to take control back of this party that's been taken over by frankly terrorists. i don't think that we are going
6:22 pm
to be able to do it in this conversation but the party has to figure out how they are going to do it. and i'm curious about what they were talking about at cpac right now. >> there's also this hypocrisy aisha about, i guess the hypocrisy of them and the candidates and what they lie about. you have house republicans for example withdrawing their support from this ohio republican candidate jay are due ski after it was revealed that he had lied about his military record. fun funny enough, majeski was at the capitol on january six, and it's something we've known about for months, so house republicans are okay with you being an insurrectionist trying to overturn our government but lying about your military service? darn, that is where we draw the line. >> they just don't have any values, this is the thing! they really have zero moral compass. they have no consciousness. everything to them is about holding power by any means
6:23 pm
necessary. let's be really clear about who they're holding power for. it's for white nationalists, four white men, it's for the patriarchy,'s for white supremacy. yes, all of those things are what they believe the military stands for, so certainly don't be a stain on the military by lying about a record there, he can go ahead and throw all these people under the bus and you can support trying to kill nancy pelosi. we are down with that. they are completely crazy, and i do believe it should be legal that then we had these people spewing these kind of the terrell analyze, actually in charge of anything. >> jason it looks like the republicans especially kevin mccarthy are desperate for any type of branding, so they rolled out this republican midterm agenda if you will. he's promising to defend parents who according to the justice department who were sending teachers death threats. watch this. >> i'll make this personal pledge i don't know if it happened, but any parent can be
6:24 pm
put on the terrorist list by the doj and will get you off it okay. >> that is his commitment to america. >> wow. that is quite a promise. that means anyone who is on the terrorist watchlist, as long as you are a parent, you are gonna be totally, totally fine, which i do think that is a great line in the sand to draw for kevin mccarthy. what they are doing now is they basically the whole party has accepted that they just have to say that the 2020 election was stolen. and they will either dance around it and say, yeah it's been decided, we're not gonna worry about it anymore, but still kind of throwing the red meat, alleging the marjorie taylor greene and lauren boebert's of the world go out there and explicitly lied to their constituents, to the american people and say that the 2020 election was stolen.
6:25 pm
it is a really, really bizarre time for the republican party. >> yeah, it really is. stick around with may, we got a lot more to discuss. we're gonna talk about michael and now is, going to need to sell a lot of pillows to pay for all of his legal troubles. we'll tell you about that next. bout that next alright, limu, give me a socket wrench, pliers, and a phone open to they customize your car insurance, so you only pay for what you need... and a blowtorch. only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪

6:29 pm
even harder for me to say with a straight face that the ceo of a pillow company played such a central role in the republican attempts to overturn the 2020 election results. what's not hard to believe, is that mike lindell is now paying a price for those efforts. we learned that he is under federal investigation for identity theft hand, order to seize investigate a suspected computer, and a security breach in colorado. it comes just days after a federal judge allowed a
6:30 pm
defamation law to go against lindell against a voting company that he attacked regularly after the election. and while lindell is a joke to us here on the show, you can't forget that he has had an actual impact on election subversion efforts including the ex president of the united states. he helped sponsor bus tours to spread election lies across the country, he attended the january 6th rally that preceded the insurrection, and most notably after january 6th, he was pictured with documents going into the west wing that appeared to refer to martial law and the insurrection act. let's bring back our sunday neck panel to talk about this. jason, you have been to a lot of trump rallies warm mike lindell is literally seen as a superhero of sorts. how did he get this elevated status in the republican establishment? >> it is bizarre. we have talked to a lot of trump supporters on the road and they always talk about evidence and i use it with the
6:31 pm
biggest air quotes i could possibly use, evidence of voter fraud and the source that they always site is mike lindell who is in infomercial pill salesman. i'm gonna repeat the, he's an infomercial pillow salesman. he is just the loudest voice in the room telling a lot of these trump supporters what they want to hear, which is that the election in 2020 was stolen, even though there is no evidence to support that. he's also not very technically savvy. we have watched him one of his events, and he was fumbling with a power point presentation. he could not get powerpoint to work. it is not all the ins and outs of voting machines. i don't think people should get their beginning their election advice from somebody, any advice on the election integrity from somebody like mike lindell. >> and aysha, lindell hosted a rally yesterday, and i pro
6:32 pm
trump tooth rally only a few dozen people showed up. >> what's actually most shocking to me, now this guy is a punchline right now. let's not forget that he was a semi credible business person before he got in bed with donald trump, pun intended with his pillow of course. i am always shocked at these people who lead these multinational companies, hawking whatever good they might have, who clearly have some kind of marketing skills. he either raise some money or got symbols to start a company, and people thought that he was a credible character, even to be who he is and to him amassed the wealth that he has. i just want to know, how is it that all these crazy kooks keep starting these companies and making millions? somebody give me the playbook. i may be all even take a page out of the crazy, but can be more successful. >> crazy and pillows is your
6:33 pm
ticket to fame and success if you in the republican republican establishment. and again, you look at fox that is already embroiled with this lawsuit with dominion, aisha how much legal and financial trouble is lindell in with this new lawsuit do you think? >> i wish that i could tell, he's about to go downright? but it seems to me, the insurrectionists, many of them have got more than a slap on the wrist, they have been held accountable for their actions, but there haven't been enough people in the trump orbit but have actually gone down for real crimes in my humble opinion. so while i am hopeful because there is a real investigation that is happening and it's underway, it'll be interesting to see what happens to him and what he has to account for in terms of fines or jail time or otherwise. so we will watch it all play
6:34 pm
out but i'm not holding my breath right now. >> jason, people can dismiss lindell as a fringe, but he does have trump's ears. he's done shout-outs at rallies of you have seen. people do look up to him and respect what he's trying to do among these circles and at these events. are the people who are dismissing him making the same mistake they did when they dismissed trump back in 2016? >> i don't think so, because he's a little bit more out there and i think people can kind of see through that, at least the majority of the people. some people we talk to a trump rallies will say that they don't believe mike lindell it just billy wish that he would shut up. and i actually talked with him at cpac this year in dallas and within 20 seconds of talking with him, he accused my family of working for dominion voting machines, and then call me the enemy of the people. my dad was a high school principal and i went to his
6:35 pm
high school so, i knew he wasn't working for dominion behind the scenes or anything like that. he is certainly not a stable person, he's not a stable genius like trump likes to call himself. >> he knows your family better than you jason. >> i don't know, maybe i've got some dark secrets. they're gonna use this on the qanon boards right now, in big trouble. >> next episode of pillow talk with jason. that's a new segment we're doing on the show. jason, aisha, always a pleasure great to see it both. keep up the good. work up next, we are changing gears. we are gonna go overseas. anti government protests in iraq continue over the death of a 22 year old woman after she was held in custody by the country's notorious morality for us. we'll tell you more about that later. later.

6:39 pm
at the disturbing death of 22 year old mahsa amini and iranian woman who died while she was reportedly in the custody of the country's morality police. yes, it is the year 2022 and the iranian regime has a morality police whose purpose it is to make sure that citizens of iran are compliant with these strict religious laws or they can be punished. in her case she was detained for not wearing the hijab properly to cover her hair. a family says she was beaten while in custody. the iranian regime denies that and said she'd died of a
6:40 pm
medical condition even though mahsa father said she didn't have any underlying health conditions. but since the alleged killing, the people of a rant led by brave women have been protesting in the streets. they are demanding an end to the countries oppressive and draconian social law, that of curtailed social freedoms. for 40 years the social and personal faces of iranians have been personally shrinking. the iranian people have been subjected to domestic oppression and brutal foreign sanctions that have stifled every aspect of their lives. and yet despite these challenges, despite the challenges and decades of hard just, they've endured the deadly risks they face on the streets, they are still demanding change. you see the iranian people in specific pacific glee right women are showing the world in realtime what true courage really shows like, as women in this country and around the world come in under a true attack from really religious
6:41 pm
extremists and ideologues, it's important to remember that these struggle for women's freedom is universal. and if we ignore these calls for change, whether it is in iran right here in america, we are doing so at our own peril. joining us now is nick kara you'll be savvy, and rainy generalist. no vera it is great to talk to you again. we have been speaking over the last couple of days. iranians are still risking their lives during protests. tell us what you have learned about conditions on the ground what they are facing day in and day out. >> while a man we are hearing reports dozens of protesters being killed. we are seeing images of brutal violence by security forces shooting at protesters, beating protesters and we are hearing of disruption. there are also reports of activists and a number of journalists, and increasingly
6:42 pm
number of journalist activists being arrested, as pressure on anyone who speaks out. i've spoken to some activists and journalists who say they're getting calls from security forces telling them to essentially tone it down and threatening them with the rest. even ordinary citizens have been identified by security forces have been contacted him asked to stay home and not go back on the street. so the recipe for violence and the crackdown is similar to what we saw was in 2019 mass protests and 2009 again, when there were mass protests. i'm afraid we are just gonna see more brutal violent crackdown as the security forces are trying to move the protesters back. >> give us all the general conditions of the conditions in the country. i think most people were shocked to hear the word morality police. what do the morality pleased to in around and are there
6:43 pm
specific demands of the protesters right now. i was trying to describe the overall conditions of an oppressed society, economically stagnant society and people may be wondering what are the manse of these protesters that would bring about change? >> the morality police, or the guidance patrol as part of the bigger police force and his task is quote unquote is guiding women and men and how to dress and behave appropriately. and according to the mandatory hijab laws of the country. there have been image after image, evidence, photos and also eyewitnesses that we have seen of the violence of this morality police, when women refused to be quote unquote guided by them, they have the authority to arrest them. we've seen brutal images of them beating women, throwing in a police van's, and treating women as criminals. and taking them to the police
6:44 pm
station, making them sign papers saying that they won't commit this violation of the dry dresscoat again, or go through training's to be guided further. that's where she was taken to the police station to be further guided on what was considered inappropriate dress by her. as far as the demands of the press testers, the death was a spark of this, and years and years of this violence and public harassment of women by the puck morality police which is an extension of the met mandatory hijab law. but also there's a lot of underlying grievances, political, economic as you mentioned, social, cultural. there's a lot of pressure on artist, filmmakers, journalist and just an everyday citizens as far as the use of not really having a prospect for a future, for economic reasons and political. you also see a lot of corruption in the ruling class, in the the political elite. all of this is just layers of anger that is built up and is pouring out on the streets.
6:45 pm
but the spark was definitely the death of mahsa amini. >> where does the situation go from here? does the potential reaction from the iranian government in terms of this escalation against protesters? or is there some sort of middle ground that may emerge as part of the protests the pressure the protesters are applying? >> well ayman we don't see any sign of the state backing off, in fact they are asking the protests to go back home. they're calling them rioters, they're accusing them of being led on by foreign western powers, some european ambassadors and diplomats have been summoned. the state seems to just use the same recipe for violent conflict as they've used before. but nonetheless, the pressure from society is just so massive, and what's significant is you are also hearing these calls from the religious community. some religious scholars calling for the abolishment of the morality police.
6:46 pm
the largest party, the opposition party calls for an abolition of the morality police and and and to the mandatory hijab reform, hoping that this would be a turning point, that this would be a watershed moment essentially, a wake up call to make some change. i don't think they're gonna come up and accept defeat, but maybe quietly they won't roll this violent form of harassment against women and the public. >> hopefully they do at least east some of the pressure that has been applied on people and the citizens of iran for the last several decades. thank you so much for joining us this evening. i greatly appreciate your time. up next. we'll have the very latest on tropical storm ian. tropical storm ian what's for dinner? panera!

6:59 pm
they need a real solution. i've always fought with 5-10 pounds all the time. eating all these different things and nothing's ever working. i've done the diets, all the diets. before golo, i was barely eating but the weight wasn't going anywhere. the secret to losing weight and keeping it off is managing insulin and glucose. golo takes a systematic approach to eating that focuses on optimizing insulin levels. we tackle the cause of weight gain, not just the symptom. when you have good metabolic health, weight loss is easy. i always thought it would be so difficult to lose weight, but with golo, it wasn't. the weight just fell off. i have people come up to me all the time and ask me, "does it really work?" and all i have to say is, "here i am. it works." my advice for everyone is to go with golo. it will release your fat and it will release you.
