tv   The Last Word With Lawrence O Donnell  MSNBC  April 16, 2021 10:00pm-11:00pm PDT

10:00 pm
time for the last word with jonathan mackay part, good evening. >> for a moment there i was confused, one day of the week is this? >> i thought it might be sunday. see you then. so today marks 100 days since the january 6th january capital insurrection. it is impossible to forget the images that we saw the day, the violent pro trump mob laying siege in our nation's capital in an attempt to overthrow the election more. than 400 subs suspects have been charged in their role, according to the deputy general, the fbi has made an average of more than four arrests a day seven days a week since january 6th. today, on the 100-day anniversary, the department of justice secured its first guilty plea in connection to the riot, john schaffer, a
10:01 pm
founding member of the far-right group the oath keepers. stormed the capitol while wearing a tactical vest armed with bare spray. schaffer pled guilty to obstructing an official proceeding and entering the capital with a deadly or dangerous weapon. both felonies that can carry up to a total of 30 years in prison. as part of his plea agreement, schaffer agreed to fully cooperate with the government, he is now the first defendant to flip in one of the largest and most complex criminal investigations in u.s. history. the plea agreement called for a recommended sentencing range between 41 and 51 months, but the judge could ultimately hand a sentence outside those numbers. shea first cooperation with the government could prove instrumental in helping prosecution pursue much broader conspiracy charges against 12 other members of the oath keepers involved in the capital insurrection. leading off our discussion is glenn kirschner, a former
10:02 pm
prosecution tour and legal analysts. glen thank you so much for being here with us tonight. >> thank you jonathan, good to be with you. >> glenn, you're one of my fear people to talk about this, how important is this guilty plea from schaffer? >> you know, it is actually pretty consequential, jonathan, because this is not as some people have said just a glorified trespassing guilty plea. this is actually a guilty plea with cooperation, which we will talk about in a minute. but it's a guilty plea for a crime that involves breaching the capitol with the intent to impede a congressional inquiry, specifically, the electoral college vote count. when we realize that schaffer bills himself as a founding member of the oath keepers, this is where the cooperation part of the guilty plea comes into play, because it can tell you today was not, sort of the
10:03 pm
first step in a cooperation agreement with defendant schaffer. this has been going on for sometime, anytime a defendant approaches the prosecution and it wants to consider pleading guilty and cooperating, what we do is we sit down across the table with that aspiring cooperating defendant and we basically make them tell us everything they know about criminal activity. not only criminal activity they've perpetrated, but all of their fellow oath keepers, all of their fellow insurrectionists, and then we go about trying to cooperate all that information before we ever strike a plea and cooperation agreement with them. >> i'm glad you point that out, because my next question was going to be, is this guilty plea, is it the first of many, or is it a guilty plea that is meant to sent a signal to the other folks out there who are either have been arrested,
10:04 pm
charged or trying to get deals, is it a signal to them, to say ok you better get your deal now or you will be out of luck? >> i think it serves both of those, jonathan. this man sees himself as the founding founder of the oath keepers, i'm not suggesting that the organization has been involved in other criminal activities but, if it has, you can bet the prosecutors are going to ring every drop of criminal information out of defendant schaffer, not only about the run up to january 6th, not only about the attacked on the capitol on january 6th, but anything you the oath keepers have been up to. let's remember, there was some coordination between the oath keepers and the proud boys. i think defend schaffer can also provide information, potentially, about the proud boys organization. this is the first cooperation
10:05 pm
shot fired across the bow and i predict that this is going to start the dominoes falling, you're gonna see other guilty pleas, you're going to see other cooperators and the big question is how far up the criminal food chain can these types of cooperating defendants take the government? >> glenn, one more question to you and that is this, why haven't we seen charges of sedition? >> because i think we bring them so wearily and i think the last time the government brought sedition charges, the prosecution was not successful. this is not the type of charge you want to rush to, once the prosecution is doing, and what's the district attorneys are doing is that they are presenting all of this evidence to the grand jury, this sedition charge, if they come, and it looks like they might, they will be the very last charges to drop, after you see the stand-alone charges, then this conspiracy charges, then
10:06 pm
the sedition charges. i would say, stay tuned. >> all right glenn kirschner, thank you very much for coming to the last word. the insurrectionists who invaded the capitol are being held accountable, but the republicans who supported the election lie that led to the riot, are not. after raising his fist in support of the pro trump mob just before that mob invaded the capitol, senator josh hawley took in more than $3 million in donations, marjorie taylor greene she brought in three point $2 million, that is a massive amount in just three months. and, marjorie taylor greene clearly feels emboldened by the support because she is marching -- with a group of her white ring members of congress. it says that it recognizes that america is strengthened by a common respect for uniquely anglo-saxon political tradition. there are some coded language
10:07 pm
for you here, let's not forget that the university of chicago study showed that the theory that says that minorities are replacing the white population is a primary driver for capital rioters. surprise, surprise, the gop is learning the wrong lesson from the riot. rewarding the bad and punishing for good. just look at georgia's secretary of state, a republican, he refused to go along with trump's election lies and has since been condemned by the state republican party, who removed him up as chair of the georgia election board, apparently, that's what you get for defending democracy in the gop. joining us now are errin haines, editor at large at the 19th and an msnbc contributor and yamiche alcindor, white house contributor for the -- and a political analyst. thank you both for coming to the last word, errin haines
10:08 pm
what is up with the republican party and how is it that these folks who cheered on the insurrectionists are now pulling in money hand over fist? >> well, jonathan, what we are seeing is something that president trump -- now we have marjorie taylor greene, josh hawley and others who have been able to raise money off of this, pulling for former president trump's playbook because they know that he carries money. whether that translates into vote when people are up for reelection it remains to be seen. at least for now it is something that is financially lucrative and speaks to the bigger idea that it has been politically -- the big lie is something that not just is surviving president trump and it is proceeding him.
10:09 pm
the idea that [inaudible] it is something -- certainly it is not news, and racism being at the center of our country's politics, as a strategy, it is something that has long been politically potent and apparently it is financially potent as well. >> yamiche alcindor let me get you into this as well, because we can scoff as the marjorie taylor greene and the josh hollies and the ridiculousness of others, but these fund-raising numbers say that actually they have some serious power. >> these fund-raising numbers are telling us that the big lie is not just surviving it is thriving, it is thriving in states, it is thriving in the idea that the republicans are able to raise money by trying to delegitimize president biden. it also shows that leaning into seemingly racist tropes, this
10:10 pm
idea that america is somehow better when we focus on the white history, the white part of our country without really acknowledging the contribution of african americans, of native americans, of immigrants, that that somehow is something that is politically driving in our country, that is what's they are trying to prove. what when we look at what is going on at what is going on in our country there is a deep divide, where you had a republican party were saying let's do the republicans shift and let's add more african americans in our party and then we saw president trump to just the opposite and then they said that they could use divisive language and that is how they went. i also want to say that this is 100 days since supremacy took down our democracy, this is 100 days since we learned that not only are african americans are at risk when there is racism
10:11 pm
and conspiracy theories, but the very ideals, the very principle that we stand on are at risk, and that is what we are seeing mutate and spread across the country. that is a very big challenge that the republican party, as well as democrats don't know how to solve. >> and you know what, to your point, the idea that there is this american first caucus within the gop, i think lens oh whole lot of credence to what you are saying. that is why this tweet from house minority leader kevin mccarthy i find rather interesting, americas both on the idea that we're all created equal, but the republican party is the party of lincoln and the party of more opportunities for all americans, not native this dog whistle or's. >> aaron, to read this do you seriously think that we believe the words that are coming off
10:12 pm
of your twitter feed? how can you say that with a straight face given everything that we have seen, particularly, after the january 6th insurrection. >> listen, president biden said this, at least when he was campaigning that we were in a battle, we are still in the throes of this battle. is this who we are? originally he was saying that this is not who we are but we can see that there is a significant part of the population that absolutely is on board with these kinds of ideas, and the thing is, we've seen from the republican party that they are in favor of these ideals or at least on board with it, and so we know who folks like marjorie taylor greene, matt gaetz, are at this point who is the republican leadership? and who are the voters?
10:13 pm
are they going to be on board with this? we know that the president's agenda is front and center in the seven-page document, all of the things that the president was trying -- former president trump was trying to pass are outlined in that agenda and what they were saying was that anyone, who is not on board, including republicans, right, who are of four well-meaning glee, you know, white americans, if they are not on board with this agenda than they have to go to because what they are pushing is not a republican agenda but former president trump's agenda. and they're saying if you are not on board with that, then you have to leave. >> well you know yamiche alcindor, in terms of the ideas of the republican parties ideas, look at this poll. climate change, who do you
10:14 pm
trust more to handle climate change democrats, 53%, coronavirus, democrats 51%, voting rights, democrats, 48%, and it goes on where the american people, for the most part, trust democrats more than republicans to handled these issues. i'm just wondering, is the republican party now the party -- is it's no longer the party of government but now the party of grievance? >> let's remember that the thing that really drives people a lot is of course not just them trusting people on these policy issues that you just played out, but there are also the fear -- fear something that will motivate people, when you fear that the white supremacy will kill you as you're trying to live your life, as we have seen with so many people who have been killed after police, so i think when you look at it that
10:15 pm
way that tells you, even with those number let's remember that there are legislators all over the country that are changing the law in their favor, and when i remember talking to trump supporters they weren't saying i really trust him on immigration, or i really like his policies on health care, they were saying i like the way that he talks about america. i like the way that he makes me feel. i think that that is the thing that is continuing to try the republican party and i think when i talk to democrats, they are very worried about that because there is this emotional connection that if you get people scared enough until people that they're losing power, losing control of the country, that can drive people to vote in 2022, and could still get republican winnings and taking even more seats now. >> we love him because he says things we can't say. errin haines and yamiche alcindor, thank you both for joining us tonight. coming, up the coronavirus pandemic, a gun violence epidemic, so many american

an ongoing health pandemic, perpetual mass shootings, and one forsman's continued use of deadly force, republicans in the florida state legislator are focusing. on who should be allowed to play high school sports. florida is one of 33 states where republicans have introduced anti trans legislation so far this year. this week, florida's house passed a bill with unanimous republican support that would ban transgender athletes from
10:21 pm
playing on girls or women sports teams. the tampa bay times reports, quote, if the party complaining suspects the athlete was not assigned the female gender at birth, the athlete in question will have to prove their birth gender by a genetic test, a test of their testosterone levels, or an examination of the reproductive anatomy by a medical professional in order to compete. florida state representative michelle inner goolsbee who is the first black out gay women elected to the state legislator said this about the most controversial part of the bill. >> i have struggled to contemplate with everything we have going on in our states. people have job loss. people are dying from covid. this is the bill, this is the bill, and i have struggled when
10:22 pm
we know the devastating impact this will have on children of how this even got to the floor. you call it policy, and i call this bill about humanity. >> joining us now is for the state representative michele rayner-goolsby. she's a democrat who represents st. petersburg and humanity county area. thank you so much for coming on the last word tonight. to hear those words come out -- the way we just saw in that second there. it just tears at your heart. i just kept wondering, why are they really doing this? why are they targeting transgender children? >> well, jonathan, thank you so much for having me. this feeling to me is a classic example of partisanship over
10:23 pm
people. this was a bill that was really birthed out of impact, out of -- right now, our legislator is running with the bill and it's quite unfortunate. we have serious problems as a reference on my house floor speech. we have epic jobless. we are sweeping our affordable houses budget. even in my district, over the past two weeks, there has been an environmental disaster. so instead of dealing with these very real problems that we have in our state, we are dealing with this bill nobody asked for and it was just -- i couldn't understand why this was the bill. why it was a priority bill to be heard on the floor of the house. >> how much debate was there on this bill overall? was there any debate? >> 100%. so, we split the debate up on
10:24 pm
the first day. we had questions of the bill, and the democratic party, the caucus, we offered 18 amendments of this bill. we didn't offer the amendments just to say, okay, should you accept the moment, we will vote for. it it was really the only way we could highlight some of the most harmful parts about this bill. the next day, that took about -- we were on the four for six hours that first day. the next day, the debate took about 90 minutes. myself and other democratic representatives we've got the bill as well as folks in the majority party. >> i asked that question because i'm wondering how on earth that provision, that forces a woman athlete to prove her gender to a medical
10:25 pm
professional in order to compete. i wonder how much debate was there about something so invasive and downright humiliating. >> so, there was debate from members of the democratic caucus about. that i address that in my comment. i addressed the fact it was unconscionable that and also i think about the horror it could have on black and brown women, you know that oftentimes we are hyper a mask utilized. we can harken back to the treatment we saw back with serena williams and her sister venus. there are very strong. you know, i addressed all of those things in my debate, and once again, i came back, we have all of these issues that are happening, and it was so interesting, the first day this bill was debated in the legislator, it was on march
10:26 pm
31st. the national transgender day visibility that president joe biden signed that clock proclamation. we see us moving federally, we see as doing the work federally, doing the work with equality act and our legislator including a partisanship over the will of the people. this is why i always say representation matters. being why, and the first out black queer woman to ever hold public office in the state of florida, that's not for any moment, this is why i am here. >> how concerned are stated fischel's or any of your republican colleagues about the impact this bill could have on the ncaa having any of its tournaments there? they put out a statement on anti-trans bills that says inclusion and fairness can't coexist for all student athletes, including transgender athletes at all levels of sport. when determining where
10:27 pm
championships are held, ncaa policy directs that only locations warehouse can commit to providing an environment that is safe, healthy, and free of discrimination should be selected. are your colleagues worried about losing out on tournaments? >> well, jonathan, the short answer is no, it doesn't seem that they are. it seems they want to move forward with this harmful legislation, and i know that this legislation were to pass, then the governor were to sign this bill, that would mean a minimum of $75 million lost in revenue for the state of florida. our state like every other state in the union has been hit with covid. we are trying to bounce back. $75 million is a tremendous bump to our economy, and we're trying to get back to our feet. once again, we're not putting the priorities of the people over politics and partisanship.
10:28 pm
the fact of the matter is it's very sad that children have become a pawn in politics. >> the one thing about children being a pawn before we go, there is a poll and pr whereas poll that shows that 67% of those polls do not support a bill that prohibits transgender student athletes from joining sports teams that match their gender identity. representative michele rayner-goolsby, you are on the right side of this issue. poll or no poll. thank you very much for coming to the last word. you are looking at live protests tonight in brooklyn center minnesota. coming up, we will talk to a police lieutenant who is a member of the police union, is working to hold bad officers accountable, and why union reform is such an important part of police reform. that's next. th the new freestyle libre 2 system,

gathered in brooklyn center minnesota to protest the fatal shooting of 20-year-old daunte wright by a police officer. that police officer, a former president of a local police union claims it was an accident. she pulled out her gun instead of her taser. she's been charged with second degree manslaughter but is out on bail. it comes as lawyers are preparing closing arguments after derek chauvin on trial for the murder of george floyd refused to testify in his own defense. former officer chauvin had at least 17 complaints of misconduct against him when he put his knee on george floyd's neck. yet remained on the force because of an agreement is union negotiated with the minneapolis police department. police unions are too often part of the problem. the union should lean to what's

ethical society of police. lieutenant orange, thank you very much for coming to the last word. >> thank you for having me. glad to be here. >> nbc news had a story yesterday with this headline. place across u.s. respond to derek chauvin trial our american way policing is on trial. across the country, police officers active and retired are watching chauvin's trial with a mix of interest and angst while some officers see the trial as an encouraging example of the criminal justice system holding a rogue cop accountable. others see it as a sign that a growing portion of the country, led by the media, politicians, prosecutors, and top commanders, has turned against them. has turned against them. lieutenant orange, do you believe that a growing portion of the country has turned against you, turned against law enforcement? >> some people may have, but i don't believe that's the
10:36 pm
general population. our community just wants us to be fair. wants us to be right. one us to do what we said that we would do it when we put that oath to serve and protect. that's what they're looking. for they're looking for us to do exactly what we say and be trustworthy. they want us to be lawful. >> when i watched your video op-ed at the new york times, this question kept coming to mind, so i'm glad we are having this conversation. how do you do it? how do you do it as a black police officer? how do you do your job in the climate we are in when there's so much distrust between the black community, african americans, and law enforcement and yet you are a member of law enforcement? >> yes, sir.
10:37 pm
sometimes it's difficult, but it's never difficult when you do it is right. if you are to do it is right, stay to your truth, stand in, it walk-in, it speak, it live, it is the people will understand, your community gets it. they understand, hey, this is a police officer, or these group of officers is doing the expectations of what we expect them to do, and our protectors out there. sometimes it has its challenges, but overall, once you do what's, right that is what goes a long way. when you do what's wrong, people are just not looking. they don't officers, how can we as officers tell them, hey, you need to do this, and we turn around and do the opposite? that doesn't work.
10:38 pm
how does that state for our community that we are out there to help, them to be there for them, to support, them and do what's right? that doesn't make any sense. >> in your video op-ed, you show how when one of your office -- one of your members got into trouble off today, you kicked him out of your union, out of your society for what he did. lieutenant orange, i want to -- you can respond to that, but i want to get you to take a look at this poll from gallup, from june, july of last year, 2020. confidence in the police among african americans, some very little to none overwhelming at 80%. would you say about that member of your police union and how can you boost the level of confidence among african americans towards on forsman? >> as far as members, we support our members to a
10:39 pm
certain extent, especially when they are doing the right things. when they're doing the wrong things, we tell them we cannot stand by bad conduct, that behavior is unacceptable. that's not what our mission. is that's not what we stand for, and the community looks at us as a moral compass, basically to say hey, what they're doing is right, so how can we tell them to do what's right when we don't do what's right? as far as the gallup poll, one of the reasons we can really help change that, is be more engaged in our community. also, to look at police reform and make sure the police reform that the community combined into by our policies and procedures. >> as heave just seeing there,

advanced non-small cell lung cancer can change everything. but your first treatment could be a chemo-free combination of two immunotherapies that works differently.
10:42 pm
it could mean a chance to live longer. opdivo plus yervoy is for adults newly diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread and that tests positive for pd-l1 and does not have an abnormal egfr or alk gene. opdivo plus yervoy is the first and only fda-approved combination of two immunotherapies opdivo plus yervoy equals... a chance for more starry nights. more sparkly days. more big notes. more small treasures. more family dinners. more private desserts. opdivo and yervoy can cause your immune system to attack healthy parts of your body during and after treatment. these problems can be severe and lead to death. see your doctor right away if you have a cough; chest pain; shortness of breath; irregular heartbeat; diarrhea; constipation; severe stomach pain, nausea or vomiting; dizziness; fainting; eye problems; extreme tiredness; changes in appetite, thirst or urine; rash; itching; confusion; memory problems; muscle pain or weakness; joint pain; flushing; or fever.
10:43 pm
these are not all the possible side effects. problems can occur at the same time and some more often when opdivo is used with yervoy. tell your doctor about all medical conditions including immune or nervous system problems, if you've had or plan to have an organ or stem cell transplant, or received chest radiation. here's to a chance for more horizons. a chance to live longer. ask your doctor about chemo-free opdivo plus yervoy. thank you to all involved in our clinical trials. when it comes to autism, ask your doctor about chemo-free opdivo plus yervoy. finding the right words can be tough. finding understanding doesn't have to be. we can create a kinder, more inclusive world for the millions of people on the autism spectrum. >> each day we get three to 4 go to

million people vaccinated additionally, each day. there is no real logical reason not to get vaccinated. >> that is doctor anthony fauci, vaccinations are up but sore cases, with more than 300 people dying a day, right now we're in a race against the highly transmissible variant of
10:45 pm
covid-19. half of the infections across the country are now caused by a covid variant. but the actual number could be much higher because we're only tracking variance in 3% of cases, through a process known as genome sequencing. today the biden administration announced its allocating 1.7 billion dollars to better detect the variant. the cdc director says covid variants are behind the recent increase in cases and hospitalizations. >> some of these increases are the result of relax prevention efforts across the country. another reason for the increases is the continued spread of highly transmissible variants. more than 50 to 70% more transmissible which makes the race to stop the transmission more challenging and threatens to overwhelm our health care system again in parts of this country. >> every one person who gets vaccinated help stop the surge
10:46 pm
of variants and stop the pandemic. our next guest has taken that as a personal mission, tarik khan is a nurse practitioner who has been rushing in his car across philadelphia to vaccinate homebound citizens with doses who would expire because of people who don't show up for their vaccination. a wasted vaccine is a sin according to him. he has been racing against the clock because they expires six hours after the violence opened. joining us now is tarik khan a family nurse practitioner and president of the pennsylvania state nurses association. tarik khan, thank you very much for coming, i tripped over your name there only because i was about to say meet this angel. why are you doing this? >> thank you, jonathan, it's great to be here. i've been with other nurses at the front line during the pandemic since it began, doing
