Jake Tapper Tears Into Kellyanne for Try to Defend Trump’s Conspiracy Theory about DEATH Epstein


>>>WELCOME TO “THE LEAD.” I’M JAKE TAPPER. IN OUR TOLL PICKS LEAD, THIS MORNING THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ANNOUNCED IT IS SEEKING TO CHANGE THE RULES FOR LEGAL IMMIGRATION. SEEKING TO MAKE IT HARDER TO GET INTO THIS COUNTRY LEGALLY. SPECIFICALLY THE ADMINISTRATION IS TARGETING IMMIGRANTS WHO ARE LOW-INCOME AND LESS EDUCATED AND THUS MORE LIKELY TO RELY ON FOOD STAMPS OR OTHER GOVERNMENT BENEFITS. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION CLAIMS IT IS MERELY TRYING TO RESTORE INTEGRITY TO A BROKEN SYSTEM. BUT TODAY’S ANNOUNCEMENT IS BEING INTERPRETED BY — CRITICS BY AN ATTEMPT TO STIR THOSE WHO ARE POOR OR UNEDUCATED FROM THE POEM AT THE STATUE OF LIBERTY WHICH A REPORTER ASKED KEN CUCCINELLI ABOUT TODAY. >>IS THAT SENTIMENT, GIVE US YOUR TIRED, YOUR POOR, STILL OPERATIVE IN THE UNITED STATES AND SHOULD THAT COME DOWN OFF THE STATUE. >>I’M NOT PREPARED TO TAKE ANYTHING DOWN OFF THE STATUE OF LIBERTY. >>HE INSISTED THIS RULE IS NOT AIMED SPECIFICALLY AT THE LATINOS AND LATINAS THAT THE PRESIDENT HAS FOCUSED ON RHETORICALLY AND WITH HIS BORDER PATROL AND HE SAID THERE IS NO REASON FOR ANY PARTICULAR GROUP TO THINK THEY ARE TARGETING THEM. >>IF WE HAD BEEN HAVING THIS CONVERSATION A HUNDRED YEARS AGO IT WOULD HAVE APPLIED TO MORERA HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY CALLED UNFORTUNATE. CUCCINELLI SAID TODAY, MORE I.C.E. RAIDS ARE TO COME. JESSICA SCHNEIDER JOINS ME. AND TALK US THROUGH THE NEW REGULATIONS AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE TRYING TO LEGALLY IMMIGRATE TO THE UNITED STATES. >>THIS WILL PARK A DRASTIC SHIFT IN THE WAY THAT IMMIGRANTS ARE EVALUATED DURING THE APPLICATION PROCESS FOR VISAS AND GREEN CARDS. UNDER CONGRESSIONAL STATUTE, THE GOVERNMENT HAS LONG CONSIDERED HOW DEPENDENT IT OR WOULD BE ON GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE WHEN THEY’RE DETERMINING THE ELIGIBILITY FOR PERMANENT RESIDENT STATUS BUT UP UNTIL NOW THE GOVERNMENT HAS ONLY CONSIDERED THE CASH BENEFITS THAT IMMIGRANTS RECEIVED BUT UNDER THIS NEW RULE ANNOUNCED TODAY AND SET TO GO INTO EFFECT ON OCTOBER 15th, U.S. CITIZENSHIP AND IMMIGRATION SERVICES WILL FACTOR IN WHETHER THE IMMIGRANT RECEIVED ANY NUMBER OF PUBLIC BENEFITS INCLUDING FOOD STAMPS, MEDICARE OR HOUSING VOUCHERS AND CONSIDER THOSE AS NEGATIVE FACTORS IN AN IMMIGRANT’S APPLICATION. NOW OF COURSE THE WHITE HOUSE IS DEFENDING THIS RULE SAYING THAT THIS IS A WAY TO ENSURE AND ENCOURAGE IMMIGRANTS ALREADY HERE AND THOSE LOOKING TO COME TO THE U.S. ARE SELF-SUFFICIENT.>>WE CERTAINLY EXPECT PEOPLE OF ANY INCOME TO BE ABLE TO STAND ON THEIR OWN TWO FEET. AND SO IF PEOPLE ARE NOT ABLE TO BE SELF-SUFFICIENT THEN THIS NEGATIVE FACTOR WILL BEAR VERY HEAVILY AGAINST THEM IN A DECISION ABOUT WHETHER THEY’LL BE ABLE TO BECOME A LEGAL PERMANENT RESIDENT.>>SO THAT IS THE WHITE HOUSE STANCE. BUT CRITICS ARE ALREADY CRYING FOUL. THEY’RE SAYING THIS AMOUNTS TO REALLY A WEALTH TEST THAT IT WILL LEAD TO DISCRIMINATION TO IMMIGRANTS AGAINST POOR COUNTRIES AND COULD KEEP FAMILIES APART AND PROMPT LEGAL IMMIGRANTS HERE IN THE U.S. SO REFRAIN FROM SEEKING PUBLIC AID AND TODAY WE HEARD THE NATIONAL IMMIGRANT LAW CENTER WILL BE FILING A LAWSUIT TO CHALLENGE THIS NEW RULE. JAKE. >>JESSICA SCHNEIDER, THANKS SO MUCH. LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS. SUNLEN, LET ME START WITH YOU. IS IT FAIR TO SAY THIS RULE SAYS DON’T GIVE ME YOUR TIRED, POOR, HUDDLED MASSES YEARNING TO BE FREE AND GIVE ME PEOPLE WITH EDUCATION AND HAD SOME MONEY AND CAN BLEND EASIER INTO THE UNITED STATES?>>IT IS CERTAINLY — THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION THROUGH THIS ACTION AND OTHER ACTIONS ARE CERTAINLY MAKING IT CLEAR WHAT TYPE OF IMMIGRANT THEY’RE LOOKING FOR INTO THE UNITED STATES. SO OBVIOUSLY WITH THE PUBLIC CHARGED RULE THAT WAS RULED OUT EARLIER TODAY THEY WANT AS ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS SAID, THEY WANT THE IMMIGRANTS WHO COME LEGALLY TO THE UNITED STATES TO BE MORE OR LESS SELF-SUFFICIENT BUT THE ADMINISTRATION IS DOING THE BIG LEGISLATIVE PLAN THAT JARED KUSHNER HAS BEEN DRAFTING. ALSO THE CURRENT U.S. IMMIGRATION SYSTEM TO MORE ONE THAT IS BASED ON MERIT AT THE EXPENSE OF PEOPLE WHO MAY BE LOWER INCOME AND WHAT NOT. AND WHILE THERE HAS BEEN SO MUCH FOCUS ON THE PRESIDENT’S CRUSADE AGAINST ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION AND THE BORDER WALL THERE HAVE BEEN SO MUCH CHANGES TO THE LEGAL IMMIGRATION THAT HAVE GONE UNDER THE RADAR SUCH AS THIS LONG DEBATE OVER THE PUBLIC CHARGE RULE AND THE ADMINISTRATION IS SLASHING THE NUMBER OF REFUGEES ADMITTED TO THE UNITED STATES, THEY ARE CUTTING TEMPORARY PROTECTIVE STATUS PROGRAM. SO THEY ARE RESHAPING THE LEGAL IMMIGRATION SYSTEM DAY BY DAY. >>AND THERE WAS — I REMEMBER A MOVE BY SENATOR TOM COTTON AND SOME OTHER REPUBLICANS, DAVID PURDUE FROM GEORGIA I THINK, TO LIMIT LEGAL IMMIGRATION. IT DIDN’T GO ANYWHERE IN THE SENATE. SO NOW THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS KIND OF TRYING TO DO IT THROUGH RULE-MAKING IN A WAY. >>RIGHT. IT IS — THE U.S. CONGRESS HAS AN INABILITY TO LEGISLATIVE ON IMMIGRATION AND THAT IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO BE THE CASE UNLESS WE SEE A SEA CHANGE IN ELECTION. AND BECAUSE OF THAT, THE ONLY WAY THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION CAN MAKE CHANGES IS THROUGH THESE RULES AND THROUGH THESE PROCEEDINGS AND THE RULES COULD BE MORE DIFFICULT FOR IMMIGRANTS TO MANAGE LIKE IN THE CASE OF WHAT HAPPENED TODAY, YOU’RE GOING TO HAVE IMMIGRANTS WHO MAYBE ONE MEMBER OF THE FAMILY IS ON AN ASSISTANCE PROGRAM AND THEY WON’T BE ABLE TO HAVE THAT — HAVE THAT AND IF THEIR CHILDREN ARE U.S. CITIZENS, THEY’RE GOING TO BE SCARED TO GET THAT ASSISTANCE PROGRAM, AND THEIR U.S. CITIZEN CHILDREN WILL HAVE LESSER OUTCOMES FOR THE FUTURE AND YOU END UP WITH IMMIGRANTS BEING POOR AND HAVING LOWER SORT OF HIGHER CRIME RATES AND JUST A WORSE OUTCOME GENERALLY. >>WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON ALL OF THIS. >>I’M PRETTY LIBERTARIAN WHEN IT COMES TO LEGAL IMMIGRATION. I’M NOT ON BOARD FOR THE IDEA IT IS SOMEHOW BAD FOR AMERICAN WORKERS. I THINK LARGELY IT IS GOOD FOR THE ECONOMY AND GOOD FOR US TO BRING PEOPLE IN. THERE DOES NEED TO BE AWAY TO ADJUDICATE AND IT DOES SEEM THAT OFTEN WHENEVER TRUMP CHANGES THE RULES, THERE IS AN OBJECTION NO MATTER WHAT HE CHANGES THE RULES IN WHICH DIRECTION. I THINK HIS — I THINK HIS MOVE TO ENFORCE IMMIGRATION — ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION ARE DEFENSIBLE THAN THE CHANGES MADE TO LEGAL IMMIGRATION WHICH I THINK IS LEGAL. AND LARGELY ENRICHES OUR COUNTRY.>>BUT HERE IS THE THING. WE DON’T LEGISLATIVE VIA POEM. WE WANT TO EMBODY THE SPIRIT OF IT. BUT IT ISN’T AN UNFAIR EXPECTATION THAT SHOULD BE THE LETTER OF THE LAW AND THE LETTER OF THE LAW DOES HAVE TO HAVE SPECIFIC RULES AND I’M OKAY WITH CHANGING THOSE TO MAKE THIS VERY BAD LEGAL SYSTEM BETTER AT THE EXPENSE OF — WHEN WE CANNOT IN THE AB SENSE OF DOING THIS LEGISLATIVELY, WHICH WE’VE SEEN WE’RE UNCAPABLE OF DOING THIS. >>WHAT IS YOUR TAKE ON THIS. >>HERE WE ARE DEMONIZING THE IMMIGRANTS AND DEALING WITH THIS PART OF THE PROBLEM AND IT IS A WHOLISTIC PROBLEM. THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY HERE. AND THERE ARE CHILDREN IN CAGES AT THE BORDER AND THE PEOPLE WHO HIRE PEOPLE WHO ARE UNDOCUMENTED IN THIS COUNTRY. AND VERY RARELY DO THOSE FOLKS EVER GET — FACE ANY SERIOUS PENALTIES. THERE WAS A STUDY THAT SHOWED SOMETHING LIKE 11 COMPANIES OR INDIVIDUALS HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN PROSECUTED BUT WITH MINIMAL PUNISHMENT. >>SYRACUSE DID A STUDY, ONE YEAR 11 INDIVIDUALS WERE PROSECUTED. >>AS OPPOSED TO A MUCH HIGHER NUMBER. AND THIS IS BEEN A TREND WE’VE SEEN FOR A VERY LONG TIME. THE SECOND THING I WOULD SAY QUICKLY, GROWING UP IN CALIFORNIA THIS REMINDS ME OF WHAT PETE WILSON TRIED TO DO WITH PROPOSITION 187 WHICH WAS TO SAY THAT UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS COULD NOT ACCESS NONEMERGENCY SOCIAL SERVICES AND SO THEN YOU WERE SEEING DOCTORS AND SOCIAL WORKERS AND TEACHERS WERE THE ARBITERS OF WHO IS LEGAL AND WHO IS NOT LEGAL AND WHAT I WORRY ABOUT WITH THIS FRAMEWORK AND GIVEN THE SORT OF — THE INCAPACITY OF ADMINISTRATION TO EFFECTIVELY ADMINISTER ANY CHANGE OF ANY KIND OF LEGISLATION IS HOW WILL THIS BE ADMINISTERED. WHO IS DECIDING — WHAT THE RUBRIC FOR THIS DECIDING. YOU ARE DARKER SKINS SO YOU MIGHT NEED TO BE ON ASSISTANCE LATER ON AND HOW DO WE DECIDE THAT AND TO WHAT RAFAEL SAID, DO WE END UP WITH A SYSTEM WHO WON’T USE SOCIAL SERVICES THAT ARE NEEDED. WHICH PUTS THE REST OF US AT RISK FOR HEALTH OUTCOMES AND REMEMBER THESE ARE PEOPLE WHO PAY ABOUT $7 BILLION IN SOCIAL SERVICE — IN SOCIAL SECURITY. >>UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS MAKE UP 5% OF THE WORK FORCE. THEY’RE A BIG PART OF THE LABOR INDUSTRY. MORE THAN HALF OF THE HIRED LABOR ON FARMS, 15% OF CONSTRUCTION. THERE IS — EVERYBODY IS PRETENDING THAT UNDOCUMENTED IMMIGRANTS AREN’T AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE WORK FORCE, DOING JOBS CITIZENS DON’T WAN TO DO. AND SUNLEN QUICKLY, THIS DOES SEEM TO BE A PIECE OF WHAT WE’RE HEARING FROM THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ON THE POLITICS SIDE OF IT IN TERMS OF TALKING A LOT ABOUT PEOPLE WOULD ARE NOT WHITE. WHETHER IT IS THE SQUAD, OR ELIJAH CUMMINGS, I GET THIS IS POLICY INDIFFERENT BUT AGAIN IT DOESN’T FEEL LIKE A COINCIDENCE.>>THERE HAS BEEN CERTAINLY A LOT OF THE FOCUS ON RACE AND THE PRESIDENT RECENTLY. JUST GOING BACK TO THE STUNNING RACIST COMMENTS WITH HIM TELLING THE FOUR LAWMAKERS TO GO BACK TO — FOR U.S. CITIZEN CONGRESSWOMEN TO GO BACK TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM AND THEN TO THE COMMENTS INVOLVING BALTIMORE. THE PRESIDENT AS WE’VE SEEN CONSTANTLY IS — AND THE CAMPAIGN IS DRIVING ON THAT BASE FOCUSED STRATEGY TO THE EXPENSE OF TRYING TO KIND OF BROADEN HIS BASE AND THIS IS GOING TO BE A TACTIC THAT WE’LL CONTINUE TO SEE. >>STICK AROUND. WE HAVE MORE TO TALK ABOUT. PRESIDENT TRUMP JUST WENT AFTER A FORMER MEMBER OF HIS OWN W>>>WE’RE BACK WITH THE POLITICS LEAD. A FORMER TRUMP WHITE HOUSE OFFICIAL IS SUGGESTING THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY SHOULD CONSIDER REPLACING TRUMP AS THE 2020 NOMINEE AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP HAD PERHAPS ONE OF THE WORST WEEKS. ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI WHO WAS THERE FOR 11 DAYS AND WARNED EACH DAY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP IS GETTING WORSE. PAMELA BROWN PICKS UP THE COVERAGE FROM NEW JERSEY WHERE THE PRESIDENT IS VACATIONING.>>Reporter: PRESIDENT TRUMP MAY BE ON SUMMER BREAK. BUT HE’S NOT TAKING A VACATION FROM TWITTER. GOING AFTER HIS ONE-TIME COMMUNICATION DIRECTOR ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI FOR THIS COMMENT ON HBO’S REALTIME WITH BILL MAHER. >>I DO TRY TO DEFEND HIM BUT THERE ARE THINGS THAT HE’S DONE THAT ARE UNDEFENSIBLE. >>Reporter: TUP SAID HE SAW THE SHOW BY ACCIDENT AND SAID SCARE A MUCHY WAS — AND NOW SEEMS TO DO TELEVISION AS THE ALL TIME EXPERT ON PRESIDENT TRUMP. >>I TRY TO STAY LOYAL TO HIM. BUT YOU CAN’T BE LOYAL TO SOMEBODY THAT AGAIN IS ASYMMETRIC IN HIS LOYALTY. >>Reporter: SCARAMUCCI TELLING CNN HE NO LONGER SUPPORTS THE PRESIDENT AND HOPES REPUBLICANS WILL RECONSIDER THEIR SUPPORT AS WELL.>>HE IS GIVING PEOPLE A LICENSE TO HATE, TO PROVIDE A SOURCE OF ANGER TO GO AFTER EACH OTHER. I THINK YOU HAVE TO CONSIDER A CHANGE AT THE TOP OF THE TICKET WHEN SOMEONE IS ACTK LIKE THIS. >>Reporter: THE PRESIDENT ALSO SPENT PART OF THE WEEKEND RE-TWEETING BASELESS CONSPIRACY THEORIES ABOUT THE DEATH OF JEFFREY EPSTEIN. THOSE TWEETS SEEMINGLY QUESTIONING IF THE ALLEGED SEX TRAFFICKER KILLED HIMSELF AND INSTEAD LINKING IT TO HIS POLITICAL RIVALS, THE CLINTONS, CLAIMING EPSTEIN HAD DIRT ON BILL CLINTON. SUNDAY WHITE HOUSE COUNSELOR KELLYANNE CONWAY TOLD POLITICO THE PRESIDENT, QUOTE, WANTS EVERYTHING TO BE INVESTIGATED. SOMETHING SHE REPEATED ON FOX NEWS SUNDAY AND DIDN’T EXACTLY PUT THE CONSPIRACY THEORIES TO REST.>>THERE ARE SOME UNSEALED INFORMATION IMPLICATING SOME PEOPLE VERY HIGH UP. BUT YOU DO HEAR DIFFERENT PEOPLE ASKING QUESTIONS. AND THEY WANT TO KNOW WHO ELSE WAS INVOLVED IN EPSTEIN’S CRIMES OR EVEN JUST ACTIVITIES.>>Reporter: AND THE PRESIDENT’S FIRST TWEET OF THE DAY NOT LONG AGO CONTINUES TO SLAM ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI HIS ONE-TIME COMMUNICATION DIRECTOR SAYING HE’S UPSET HE WASN’T OFFERED A JOB IN THE ADMINISTRATION AND PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYING IN THE TWEET HE SELDOM HAD TIME TO RETURN HIS MANY CALLS SO IT APPEARS THAT THIS CAT FIGHT ISN’T GOING TO END ANY TIME SOON.>>PAMELA BROWN IN NEW JERSEY WHERE THE PRESIDENT IS VACATIONING. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. I’VE NEVER HEARD ANYBODY DESCRIBE A FIGHT BETWEEN TWO MEN AS A CAT FIGHT. AND I LOVE IT. >>QUITE APPROPRIATE. >>AND I THOUGHT THE TERM HAD BEEN BANNED. BUT WE COULD BRING IT BACK FOR THAT. WE SHOULD POINT OUT — SCARAMUCCI JUST RESPONDED TO PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYING, QUOTE, YOU ARE LOSING YOUR FASTBALL. MANY ARE WORKING ON A NECESSARY REPLACEMENT AND TIME TO CALL IN A GOOD RELIEF PITCHER AND EARLIER HE SAID TO THOSE WHO ARE ASKING WHAT TOOK SO LONG. YOU’RE RIGHT. HIS INCREASINGLY DIVISIVE RHETORIC AND DAMAGE TO THE FABRIC OF OUR COUNTRY OUTWEIGHS ANY SHORT-TERM ECONOMIC GAME. AND RAFAEL, LET ME START WITH YOU. BECAUSE ANY OTHER ADMINISTRATION, THIS WOULD BE JUST FOUR-ALARM FIRE NEWS. FORMER COMMUNICATION DIRECTOR FOR THE WHITE HOUSE IS CALLING FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP TO BE REPLACED ON THE TICKET. BUT IT IS THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION SO — >>OUR HEADS WOULD BE EXPLODING AND INSTEAD WE’RE CHATTING ABOUT IT IN A CIVILIZED MANNER. THE ONE THING IS TRUMP DOES RUN A BIG RISK HERE. HE RUNS A RISK OF HITTING A SWEET SPOT WHERE HE’S NOT HARSH ENOUGH FOR HIS BASE AND FOR THE LIKES OF ANN COULTER FOR EXAMPLE AND TOO HARSH FOR SCARAMUCCI AND PEOPLE WHO WANT TO SEE HIS ECONOMIC POLICIES CONTINUE. >>LIKE HARSH IS IMMIGRATION POLICY. >>I THINK IMMIGRATION IS THE TRUMP ISSUE. WHETHER THAT IS GOOD FOR HIM OR NOT. SO IF HE HITS THAT SWEET SPOT, HE COULD BE IN REAL POLITICAL DANGER. IT IS SORT OF A WORST CASE SCENARIO FOR HIM BUT NOW WE KNOW THAT IT EXISTS. AND THAT IS — HE SHOULD BE WORRIED. >>SCARAMUCCI SAID THERE IS A RISK THAT OTHER FORMER TRUMP ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS WILL COME OUT AND SAY SIMILAR THINGS OR HASN’T EXACTLY BEEN A STAMPEDE OF THEM BUT BY THE SAME TOKEN IS NOT HARD TO IMAGINE A FEW OF THEM SAYING SOMETHING. >>IT IS POSSIBLE. BUT MY OWN INTERPRETATION OF WHAT HE’S SAYING IS HE’S CHANNELING WHAT REPUBLICANS ARE FEELING WHICH IS WHY ARE YOU TWEETING WHEN YOU SHOULD BE DOING YOUR JOB. RIGHT. REMEMBER THE BEGINNING WHEN WE WERE WAITING FOR THE PIVOT AND WE’RE STILL KIND OF WAITING. >>IT WAS CUTE. >>IT WAS KIND OF CUTE. ALL OF THE STORIES ABOUT THE PIVOT. IT IS NOT HAPPENING. >>THERE IS NO PIVOT. >>WHAT HE’S POINTING OUT IS THIS GUY IS NOT GOING TO CHANGE. THIS IS WHO HE IS. EITHER WE SETTLE WITH THE DEVILS BARGAIN AND KNOW THIS IS THE GUY AND HE WON’T TALK ABOUT THE THINGS WE WANT HIM TO TALK ABOUT, HE’S NOT CAPABLE OF AGAIN ENACTING SOME OF THE POLICY THINGS. I DISAGREE WITH HIM ON POLICY. BUT STILL OTHER THAN THE — >>TALKING ABOUT THE ECONOMY. >>RIGHT. OR HECK ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE SQUAD, THE THIS, THAT. BECAUSE THE OTHER PIECE OF THIS IS I THINK VOTER THINK DOESN’T THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA HAVE OTHER THINGS TO DO?>>THAN FEUD WITH DONNIE DEUTSCHE AND ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI. SUNLEN, YOUR PAPER, “THE WASHINGTON POST” REPORTED THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY LEADER ARE WORRIED ABOUT BEING ABLE TO WIN BACK THESE SUBURBS THAT THEY LOST IN 2018 IN THE MIDTERMS. AND THE PRESIDENT’S ANTICS AND RACISM AND FEUDING ON TWITTER, ET CETERA, THEY ARE WORRIED IT WILL HURT THE PARTY CHANCES, NOT JUST FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP TO WIN RE-ELECTION BUT HOUSE AND THE SENATE. >>THERE ARE A LOT OF REPUBLICANS WHO HELD THEIR NOSE AND VOTED FOR TRUMP BECAUSE A LOT OF IT BASED ON THE POLICIES. AND REPUBLICAN SENATORS TELL YOU TIME AND TIME AGAIN THAT THEY ARE HAPPY WITH THE TAX POLICY AND DEREGULATORY POLICIES AND THE TRANSFORMATION OF THE JUDICIARY BUT THEY WISH HE WOULD PUT DOWN HIS PHONE, A., SO WE STOP ASKING THEM QUESTIONS ABOUT HIS TWEETS EVERY DAY, BUT ALSO BECAUSE THEY KNOW HIS RHETORIC COULD BE DAMAGING TO THE VOTERS THAT THEY NEED. CLEARLY THE SUBURBAN AREA WILL BE ONE HEAVILY TARGETED AREA FOR BOTH PARTIES NEXT YEAR AND ON THE SUBURB ISSUE, OBVIOUSLY WE TALKED ABOUT THE — THE RACE ISSUES, THE LACK OF FOCUS ON THE ECONOMY, BUT ALSO THE ISSUE OF GUNS. WHICH IS A VERY RISING CRITICAL ISSUE FOR SUBURB VOTERS AND THE REPUBLICAN PARTY AT LARGE CLEARLY STILL OPPOSES ANY SORT OF RESTRICTIONS ON GUNS AND THAT IS SOMETHING THAT SOME REPUBLICANS ARE COGNIZANT OF THAT COULD HURT THEM. >>AND MARY KATHERINE, THE PRESIDENT GAVE MORE FODDER THIS WEEK WITH THE CONSPIRACY THEORIES TIEING THE EPSTEIN DEATH TO THE CLINTONS. >>BUT THERE IS A CONSPIRACY, NO MATTER WHO IS THE CULPRIT AND THE ONE UNIFYING THING IS THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT. BUT NO, IT IS RIDICULOUS. IT IS IRRESPONSIBLE. I LOVE THE PART ABOUT THE STORY WHERE HE’S ACCIDENTALLY WATCHING BILL MAHER ON A FRIDAY. OOPS. AND AS FAR AS SCARAMUCCI GOES, HE’S NOT USUALLY AN EMBODIMENT OF THE AVERAGE AMERICAN BUT THIS ONE SENTENCE WHERE HE SAID HE’S NOT WORTH THE ECONOMIC UPSIDES, THE BAD IS NOT WORTH THE GOOD, IT IS SOMETHING — THAT IS A REAL CALCULATION THAT MANY PEOPLE INCLUDING IN THE SUBURBS, COLLEGE-EDUCATED WOMEN VOTERS ARE MAKING. THE PROBLEM IS IT A DEMOCRATS HAVE TO GIVE THEM SOMEWHERE TO GO. TALK A>>>BREAKING NEWS IN OUR NATIONAL LEAD TODAY, NEW DETAILS ON THE HELP THAT THE DAYTON SHOOTER GOT IN THE MONTHS BEFORE HIS DEADLY ATTACK. ACCORDING TO FEDERAL PROSECUTORS, THE GUNMAN’S FRIEND BOUGHT THE HIGH-CAPACITY MAGAZINE AND BODY ARMOR THAT THE KILLER USED TO SLAUGHTER NINE PEOPLE AND INJURE 22 OTHERS. THIS FRIEND HID ALL OF THAT IN HIS HOUSE SO THE SHOOTER’S PARENTS WOULD NOT FIND THEM AND ALSO TOLD OFFICIALS HE AND THE GUNMAN REGULARLY DID HARD DRUGS TOGETHER BUT BETWEEN 2014 AND 2015. HE’S NOW IN CUSTODY AND BEING CHARGED WITH LYING ON FEDERAL FORMS IN ORDER TO ON TAPE — TO OBTAIN THE FIREARMS FOR HIMSELF. AND SOURCES ARE TELLING CNN THAT JEFFREY EPSTEIN WAS NOT CHECKED ON FOR HOURS BEFORE HIS DEATH IN A NEW YORK CITY JAIL OVER THE WEEKEND. DESPITE PROTOCOL MANDATING A CHECK EVERY 30 MINUTES. SOURCES ALSO SAY THE INVESTIGATION IS NOW FOCUSED ON NOT ONLY THE 24 HOURS BEFORE EPSTEIN’S DEATH BUT INTO WIDER SYSTEMIC PROBLEMS AT THAT JAIL. BRYNN GINGRAS IS LIVE AND WHAT ELSE ARE YOU LEARNING ABOUT THE ISSUES AT THE JAIL. >>Reporter: WELL, JAKE, LISTEN, THIS CORRECTIONAL CENTER HAS A GOOD REPUTATION AND IT IS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE BEST-RUN IN THE WHOLE BUREAU OF PRISONS FACILITY. BUT OBVIOUSLY SOMETHING WENT WRONG HERE. YOU TALKED ABOUT THE PROTOCOLS THAT WERE NOT FOLLOWED WHEN IT CAME TO EPSTEIN. WELL A DIFFERENT SOURCE IS SAYING THAT TWO GUARDS WHO WERE CHARGED WITH KEEPING A WATCH ON EPSTEIN WERE WORKING OVERTIME SHIFTS. SOMETHING THAT WAS COMPLAINED ABOUT OR HAS BEEN COMPLAINED ABOUT WE PEOPLE WHO WORK IN THE FACILITY AND LIKELY SOMETHING THAT WILL BE LOOKED INTO BY AN ADMITTED ANGRY ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR. >>I WAS APPALLED AND INDEED THE WHOLE DEPARTMENT WAS AND FRANKLY ANGRY TO LEARN OF THE MCC’S FAILURE TO ADEQUATELY SECURE THIS PRISONER.>>Reporter: ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM BARR NOT MINCING WORDS TODAY ON THE APPARENT SUICIDE OF MULTI-MILLIONAIRE AND REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER JEFFREY EPSTEIN IN A NEW YORK CITY FEDERAL LOCKUP. >>EWE’RE LEARNING OF SERIOUS IRREGULARITIES THAT DPOOE MAND A THOROUGH INVESTIGATION. >>Reporter: THE INSPECTOR GENERAL AND FBI LAUNCHED INVESTIGATIONS THIS WEEKEND. THE MEDICAL EXAMINER PERFORMED AN AUTOPSY BUT IS WAITING FOR MORE INFORMATION BEFORE RELEASING THE CAUSE OF DEATH. A SOURCE TELLS CNN IT IS BELIEVED EPSTEIN HANGED HIMSELF WHILE IN A SPECIAL HOUSING UNIT A MONTH AFTER FEDERAL PROSECUTORS ACCUSED HIM OF PAYING AND RECRUITING GIRLS AS YOUNG AS 14 TO HAVE SEX WITH HIM IN TWO STATES. THREE WEEKS AGO EPSTEIN WAS PLACED ON SUICIDE WATCH AFTER PRISON GUARDS FOUND HIM WITH MARKS ON HIS NECK. BUT A SOURCE TELLS CNN EPSTEIN WASN’T ON SUICIDE WATCH THIS WEEKEND. REGARDLESS, PROTOCOL REQUIRES PRISONERS HAVE CELL MATES SHORTLY AFTER COMING OFF SUICIDE WATCH ACCORDING TO THE SOURCE BUT EPSTEIN WAS ALONE. THE BUREAU OF PRISONS WOULD NOT COMMENT.>>WE’LL GET TO THE BOTTOM OF WHAT HAPPENED AND THERE WILL BE ACCOUNTABILITY.>>Reporter: AS FOR THE FEDERAL INVESTIGATION INTO EPSTEIN’S ALLEGED CRIMES, THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK CLOSED CASE AGAINST EPSTEIN BUT CONTINUES TO LOOK INTO EMPLOYEES AND ASSOCIATES WHO MAY HAVE HELPED HIM RECRUIT YOUNG GIRLS. TO THOSE VICTIMS WHO WERE DENIED JUSTICE WHEN EPSTEIN DIED, BARR HAD TO — TO SAY. >>LET ME ASSURE YOU, THIS CASE WILL CONTINUE ON AGAINST ANYONE WHO WAS COMPLICIT WITH EPSTEIN. ANY CO-CONSPIRATORS SHOULD NOT REST EASY. THE VICTIMS DESERVE JUSTICE AND THEY WILL GET IT.>>Reporter: AND WE KNOW AT MINIMUM EPSTEIN WAS A MULTI-MILLIONAIRE. THE EXTENT OF HIS WEALTH IS UNKNOWN AND WHAT IS ALSO UNKNOWN, IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THE VICTIMS AND WILL THEY SEE ANY OF HIS MONEY WITH THE CIVIL LAWSUITS THAT CONTINUE TO BE FILED. >>BRYNN GINGRAS, THANK YOU. AND JOINING ME PREET BHARARA. YOU HEAR THE CONSPIRACIES, PEOPLE SUGGESTING THIS SUICIDE OR THIS DEATH — BECAUSE THEY ARE SUGGESTING ALL SORTS OF THINGS — COULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED WITHOUT SOME KIND OF COORDINATION. WHAT IS YOUR TAKE?>>CLEARLY SOMETHING WENT WRONG HERE. I’M FAMILIAR WITH THE MCC. OUR OFFICE, THE MAIN OFFICE OF THE U.S. ATTORNEY’S OFFICE IN THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT IS CONNECTED TO THE MCC AND IF YOU ARE AWAITING TRIAL AND YOU HAVEN’T BEEN GIVEN BAIL THAT IS WHERE YOU RESIDE. THIS IS THE MOST HIGH-PROFILE DEFENDANT PERHAPS IN THE ENTIRE COUNTRY IN FEDERAL CUSTODY AND A LOT OF PEOPLE KNEW THERE WAS AN ISSUE HERE AND UNDER EXISTING PROTOCOL — BY THE WAY, THE SUICIDE PREVENTION PROGRAM AT THE BUREAU OF PRISONS IS A VERY EXTENSIVE ONE WITH A LOT OF GOOD POLICIES AND RUNS TO 25 PAGES. I RED IT AGAIN THIS WEEKEND. SO THE FACT YOU HAVE THOSE POLICIES IN PLACE, A HIGH PROFILE DEFENDANT AND HE ENDS UP BEING FOUND DEAD ON SATURDAY MORNING, CLEARLY SOMETHING HAPPENED. THAT IS A FAR CRY, HOWEVER, FROM SOME OF THE CONSPIRACY THEORIES ON ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER SUGGESTING THAT SOMEONE WHO HAD SOMETHING TO LOSE FROM EPSTEIN POTENTIAL COOPERATION ENGAGED IN FOUL PLAY. HAD A HAND IN HIS DEATH. CLEARLY SOMETHING WENT WRONG. CLEARLY THERE ARE QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED. I THINK ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR DOES SPEAK FOR THE DEPARTMENT AND PEOPLE ALUM OF THE DEPARTMENT, MYSELF INCLUDED ABOUT HOW APPALLED AND ANGRY WE ARE THAT THIS HAPPENED. >>SO WHAT ABOUT EPSTEIN’S ACCUSERS WHO WERE SEEKING JUSTICE? WHAT CHANGES NOW? IS THERE STILL A CHANCE THEY COULD SEE SOME KIND OF JUSTICE?>>SO THE CHARGE BROUGHT INCLUDED A CONSPIRACY COUNT AND AN INTERESTING THING THAT HAPPENED ON SATURDAY AFTERNOON WAS NOT JUST THE BUREAU OF PRISONS COMING OUT WITH THE ENTERTAINMENT, ALTHOUGH NOT VERY VOLUMINOUS, BUT THE CURRENT U.S. ATTORNEY MY SUCCESSOR JEFFREY BERMAN SAID AND I’M PROUD OF THE STATEMENT MY FORMER OFFICE MADE IS THEY ARE NOT STOPPING THE INVESTIGATION WITH RESPECT TOKE KPEERTORS AND THEY MAY STILL SEE JUCHS. HAD I STILL BEEN IN PLACE, I DON’T KNOW I WOULD HAVE MADE SUCH A STRONG STATEMENT WHEN I DIDN’T NEED TO AND WASN’T ASKED FOR ONE ON A SATURDAY AFTERNOON BEFORE ALL OF THE FACTS ARE KNOWN UNLESS I HAD A FAIRLY REASONABLE PROBABILITY OR POSSIBILITY THAT WE WOULD CHARGING ADDITIONAL PEOPLE. THAT IS SPECULATION ON MY PART. BUT GENERALLY YOU WANT TO EXERCISE DISCRETION IN MAKING SUCH STATEMENTS. AND BY THE WAY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL ECHOED THAT IN THE CLIP YOU JUSTED, SAYING THERE WILL BE JUSTICE AND CO-CONSPIRATORS SHOULD NOT REST EASY AND THAT’S A SIGN THEY HAVE EVIDENCE ON OTHER PEOPLE. >>AND SOME OF THE FOCUS HAS TURNED TO THIS BRITISH WOMAN, GHOULAIN MAXWELL THAT SHE HELPED RECRUIT THE GIRLS, YOUNG UNDERAGE GIRLS FOR EPSTEIN FOR ACCUSED COC-CONSPIRATORS SUCH A HER COULD FACE CRIMINAL CHARGES.>>I DON’T KNOW THE FACT AND I HAVEN’T INTERVIEWED THE WITNESSES OR WHAT THEY HAVE, BUT THE FACT THAT THE UNITED STATES ATTORNEY AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL BOTH SPEAKING SO POINTEDLY ABOUT THE POTENTIAL FOR OTHER CHARGES, I WOULD THINK SHE SHOULDN’T REST EASY.>>>>>IN OUR 2020 LEAD, AFTER A FURIOUS WEEKEND OF CAMPAIGNING IN IOWA, THE ISSUE OF GUN CONTROL TOOK CENTER STAGE AT A GROUP EVERY TOWN FOR GUN SAFETY WHICH FAVORS GREATER RESTRICTIONS ON GUN OWNERSHIP. JOE BIDEN WHO HAS AN OP-ED CALLING FOR RENEWAL OF THE ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN HE PASSED IN 1994 IS TRYING TO FOCUS ON THE ISSUE BUT IT LED TO ANOTHER NOTABLE MISSTATEMENT BY THE FORMER VP. JEFF ZELENY HAS MORE ON WHAT ENDED UP A ROLLER COASTER TRIP FOR BIDEN.>>Reporter: JOE BIDEN’S WHIRLWIND IOWA WEEKEND STILL LINGERING IN THE AIR WITH THE CAMPAIGN PUSHING BACK ON THE ATTENTION PAID TO A STRING OF GAFFES FROM THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT. >>WE CANNOT ALLOW THIS ELECTION TO DEVOLVE INTO A TIT-FOR-TAT OVER NAME CALLING AND QUOTE/UNQUOTE GAFFES. THIS DOESN’T MATTER. THAT IS NOT SOMETHING REGISTERING WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. >>Reporter: AT A GUN FORUM HE SAID ABOUT THIS ABOUT THE PARKLAND SHOOTING. >>I REMEMBER WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THE KIDS MARCHED UP AND THEN I MET WITH THEM AND THEY WENT UP THE HILL. >>Reporter: HE DID MEET WITH WITNESSES BUT IT TOOK PLACE A YEAR AFTER BIDEN LEFT THE VICE PRESIDENT OFFICE. THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT HAS A LONG RUNNING BLOOPER REEL. SO NOTED FOR HIS STUMBLED LAST YEAR HE SAID I AM A GAFFE MACHINE. BUT MY GOD, WHAT A WORND — A WONDERFUL THING COMPARED TO A GUY WHO CAN’T TELL THE TRUTH. >>AND WE’LL DETERMINE SOON. >>Reporter: AND THAT IS THE QUESTION. AS THE DEMOCRATS LOOK FOR THE STRONGEST CANDIDATE, DO THEY CARE ABOUT BIDEN’S WELL-KNOWN TRAIL OF GAFFES. >>WE’RE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WITH EXPERIENCE IN GOVERNMENT BECAUSE OBVIOUSLY OUR PRESIDENT RIGHT NOW HAS NO EXPERIENCE IN GOVERNMENT AND IT SHOWS. SO BIDEN LOOKS GOOD US. >>Reporter: TODAY BIDEN SEEKING TO CHANGE THE SUBJECT RENEWING THE CALL TO ONCE AGAIN BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS. BAN PART OF THE 1994 CRIME BILL HE CHAMPIONED EXPIRED AFTER TEN YEARS AND NEVER PASSED AGAIN. BIDEN CALLING FOR UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS AND AN ASSAULT WEAPONS BUYBACK PROGRAM IN AN OP-ED IN “THE NEW YORK TIMES.” LESS THAN SIX MONTHS BEFORE THE IOWA CAUCUS OPEN THE BALLOT IN THE 2020 PRIMARY, THE RACE IS FLUID. AS VOTERS ARE SIZING UP ALL CONTENDERS. AS BERNIE SANDERS AND ELIZABETH WARREN DREW LARGE CROWDS TO THE STATE FAIR — KAMALA HARRIS IS INCREASING HER INVESTMENT HERE COMPLETING THE FIRST STATEWIDE BUS TOUR. >>THIS FIVE-DAY BUS TOUR HAS BEEN ABOUT FIVE CONTINUOUS DAYS OF BEING ABLE TO FRANKLY GO TO PLACES WHERE THERE MAY NOT BE AN AIRPORT BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WHO DESERVE TO BE HEARD AND SEEN.>>Reporter: NOW WHEN YOU TALK TO VOTERS HERE ADMIRATION IS THE WORD THAT COMES UP AGAIN AND AGAIN FOR HOW DEMOCRATS VIEW JOE BIDEN. NOW ALL OF THEM ARE NOT ON BOARD WITH HIM OF COURSE. BUT THERE IS FAR LESS TALK OUT HERE IN IOWA WHICH IS SO IMPORTANT OF COURSE TO HIS FUTURE ABOUT HIS GAFFES THAN WHETHER IF HE IS THE RIGHT DEMOCRAT FOR THE MOMENT. YOU HEAR QUESTIONS ABOUT HIS ANG, HEAR QUESTIONS ABOUT THE DIRECTION OF THE PARTY. BUT, JAKE, ONE THING IS CLEAR, ALL CANDIDATES SO HEAVILY INVESTED HERE IN IOWA, LESS THAN SIX MONTHS BEFORE THE IOWA CAUCUS. >>JEFF ZELENY IN IOWA. >>>AND BIDEN WROTE AN OP-ED IN THE NEW YORK TIMES ABOUT HOW HE WOULD BAN ASSAULT WEAPONS AND ENACT A BUYBACK PROGRAM TO GET THEM OFF THE STREET AND PASSING UNIVERSAL BACKGROUND CHECKS AND WRITES THAT BANNING ASSAULT WEAPONS IS ANOTHER WORD FOR SEMI-AUTOMATIC FIREARMS AMONG THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND ADDED, QUOTE, WHEN YOU HAVE THAT KIND OF BROAD PUBLIC SUPPORT FOR LEGISLATION THAT WILL MAKE EVERYONE SAFER AND STILL CAN’T GET THROUGH THE SENATE, THE PROBLEM IS WITH WEAK-WILLED LEADERS WHO CARE MORE ABOUT THEIR CAMPAIGN COFFERS THAN CHILDREN IN COFFINS. WE SHOULD POINT OUT, OBAMA AND BIDEN WERE IN THE WHITE HOUSE AND THE DEMOCRATS CONTROLLED THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE AND THEY DID NOT PUSH AN ASSAULT WEAPON BAN OR ANY FURTHER GUN RESTRICTION IN THOSE FIRST TWO YEARS. >>EXACTLY. AND EVER SINCE THE ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN EXPIRED IN 2004 AND THE ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN FOR — WHETHER IT IS CORRECT OR NOT BLAMED IN PART FOR THE ’94 LOSSES BY DEMOCRATS IN THAT MIDTERM RACE, IT IS BEEN A DIFFICULT ISSUE FOR DEMOCRATS IN GENERAL TO TOUCH. BUT NOW YOU SEE A MOVEMENT A LITTLE BIT — I WROTE ABOUT THIS LAST WEEK FOR THE “POST.” GUNS ARE ISSUES WHERE THE GRASS ROOTS AND THE VOTERS DRIVE AND TRY TO PUSH THE ELECTED OFFICIALS AND DEMOCRATS TELL ME THEY’RE STARTING TO SEE THAT WITH AN ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN. THERE IS LEGISLATION IN THE HOUSE THAT HAS ABOUT 200 CO-SPONSORS, AND THE SUPPORT IS GROWING. AND THERE ARE CERTAIN REPUBLICANS, A LOT OF TIMES THOSE REPUBLICANS HAVE DEALT WITH SIMILAR TRAGEDIES IN THEIR BACKYARDS AND ARE WILLING TO EMBRACE AN ASSAULT WEAPONS BAN. I DON’T THINK IT IS — IT IS CLEARLY NOT PASSING ANY TIME SOON BUT THE GRADUAL CHANGES ARE WHAT GUN CONTROL ACTIVISTS SAY ARE THE RESULT OF VOTERS OUT THERE PUSHING THEM. >>KAREN, DURING THE FIRST COUPLE OF YEARS OF THE OBAMA WHITE HOUSE, WHEN RAHM EMANUAL WAS CHIEF OF STAFF, HE SENT A MESSAGE TO ERIC HOLDER TRYING TO DO SOMETHING TO FURTHER RESTRICT GUN OWNERSHIP SAYING SHUT THE F UP ABOUT GUNS BECAUSE THEY WERE WORRIED ABOUT THE ELECTORAL CONSEQUENCES. >>THAT IS ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. BUT I THINK WE HAVE A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT ARE DIFFERENT NOW. THE NRA FOR EXAMPLE IS IN A VERY DIFFERENT PLACE RIGHT NOW. THEY HAVE FINANCIAL TROUBLES, ETHICAL TROUBLES THEY DIDN’T HAVE AND THEY ARE SORT OF TRYING TO DEAL WITH THEIR OWN ISSUES. ALSO AND I’VE SAID THIS BEFORE, I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW MANY OF MY FRIENDS WHO HAVE SMALL CHILDREN TALK TO ME ABOUT, MOMMY, TODAY WE GOT M&M’S BECAUSE WE ABLE TO BE QUIET FOR FIVE MINUTES IN THE CLOSET AS PART OF AN ACTIVE SHOOTER DRILL. THAT MAKE THIS IS ISSUE DIFFERENT AND TALK ABOUT THE SUBURBS AND SO MANY DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE COUNTRY WHERE HAVING YOUR CHILDREN BE PART OF ACTIVE SHOOTER DRILLS IS SOMETHING VERY DIFFERENT THAN WHERE WE WERE EVEN TWO YEARS AGO. AND I THINK BIDEN ALSO, CAN I SAY, IS PLAYING INTO THIS IDEA HE KNOWS THAT THIS A.P. POLL THAT SAID THAT 70% OF DEMOCRATS WANT SOMEBODY WITH GOVERNMENT EXPERIENCE SO HE JUST HAVE TO MEET THAT BAR IN TERMS OF PICK THE ISSUE, I THINK RIGHT NOW PART OF WHAT HE’S PLAYING TO IS THIS IDEA THAT PEOPLE WANT A LEVEL OF COMPETENCE AND CALMNESS. >>DO YOU SEE GUN POLITICS CHANGED SIGNIFICANTLY IN THE LAST TEN YEARS?>>IT IS HARD TO SAY. BECAUSE DESPITE EVERYBODY’S CONTENTION THAT IT IS, THE NRA ISN’T THE SECRET SAUCE. THE SECRET SAUCE IS THAT GUN OWNERS ARE VERY PASSIONATE ABOUT THEIR GUN OWNERSHIP AND THEY OFTEN OUTWEIGH THE OWNERSHIP AND THE PASSION AND THE ACTIVISM OF THE OTHER SIDE. AND SO THAT MAY REMAIN TRUE BECAUSE ON THE OTHER SIDE IT SORT OF EBBS AND FLOWS. IT DOES NOT EBB AND FLOW FOR GUN OWNERS WHETHER THE NRA IS IN DISARRAY OR NOT, WHICH IT IS. BUT BIDEN CONCEDES THE ORIGINAL 1994 BAN DIDN’T REALLY LIMIT THE LETHALITY OF THE GUNS BECAUSE IT IS HARD TO DO THIS LEGISLATION BUT THEN SAID WE HAVE TO DO MORE. THAT IS WHEN YOU GET INTO TROUBLE WITH THE GEM ELECTORATE AND GUN OWNERS AND ISSUES IN A GENERAL ELECTION BECAUSE HOW FAR ARE YOU GOING TO GO. BUYBACKS AMOST THE MOST UNSUCCESSFUL WHEN IT COMES TO GUN CONTROL BUT HE HAS TO PASS THIS PLAUSIBILITY HURDLE AND HE BASICALLY ALREADY HAS. THE QUESTION IS WHETHER HE ENDS UP BACK UNDER IT BECAUSE OF THE GAFFES. >>TALK ABOUT BIDEN, RAFAEL, AND THE PLAUSIBILITY HURDLE BECAUSE THE GAFFES ARE HALF HAPPENING AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU HEAR ON THE HILL BUT DO YOU THINK HE’S IN TROUBLE. >>HE’S ALWAYS BEEN A GAF MACHINE. WHAT WE COULD SEE IS HE IS A FRONT-RUNNER HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME BUT HE’S NOT THE JEB BUSH OF 2020.>>>WE’RE BACK WITH THE WORLD LEAD. A MYSTERY IN RUSSIA THAT HAS MANY U.S. OFFICIALS WORRIED AFTER A NUCLEAR EXPLOSION KILLED FIVE SCIENTISTS WORKING FOR RUSSIA’S ATOMIC AGENCY AND THE WORLD NOW WONDERS WHAT EXACTLY THE RUSSIANS WERE WORKING ON AND HOW BAD THE DAMAGE TRULY IS. CNN’S BARBARA STARR AT THE PENTAGON IS LEARNING THE U.S. BELIEVES THE SCIENTISTS WERE TESTING A NEW TYPE OF NUCLEAR MISSILE?>>Reporter: A NEW TYPE OF MISSILE, JAKE, LITERALLY WORTHY OF JAMES BOND BECAUSE THE WEST NICKNAMED THIS SKY FALL. THE IDEA, ACCORDING TO THE RUSSIANS, IS THAT IT WOULD BE NUCLEAR-POWERED CRUISE MISSILE AND THAT MEANS IT WOULD HAVE A VERY SIGNIFICANT FUEL SUPPLY, COULD TRAVEL AROUND THE WORLD AND HOLD THE U.S. AT RISK. THEY BELIEVE THE — THE U.S. BELIEVES WHAT HAPPENED LAST THURSDAY IS THE MISSILE OR COMPONENTS OF IT BLEW UP AT THIS TEST AREA DEEP IN NORTHERN RUSSIA. SOME PEOPLE WERE KILLED, AT LEAST FIVE WORKERS THERE, ACCORDING TO RUSSIAN REPORTS. BUT THE REAL CHALLENGE RIGHT NOW IS WHAT HAPPENS IF THIS MISSILE SOME DAY DOES WORK? PUTIN’S IDEA FROM A MILITARY PERSPECTIVE IS TO HAVE A MISSILE THAT COULD HOLD THE U.S. AT RISK ON U.S. TERRITORY. SO YOU HAVE THIS MISSILE THAT IS NUCLEAR POWERED THAT COULD FLY GREAT DISTANCES AND IT KEEPS THE U.S. AT BAY FOR PUTIN. THE U.S. WOULD FIND IT INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT TO DEFEND EUROPE TO EVEN GET TO EUROPE. PUTIN HOPES IT WILL WORK BUT IT ALREADY HAD SEVERAL FAILURES AND THIS LATEST CATASTROPHE.>>AND BARBARA, WHAT ABOUT THE RADIATION RELEASED BY THIS EXPLOSION?>>Reporter: THE RUSSIANS INITIALLY SAID THERE WAS A RADIATION RELEASE AND THEN PULLED BACK ON SOME OF THAT. BUT WE TALKED TO NORWEGIAN NUCLEAR OFFICIALS TODAY AND THEY SAID ALL OF THEIR INDICATIONS ARE THERE WAS SOME TYPE OF RADIOACTIVE RELEASE INTO THE ATMOSPHERE. SO, AGAIN, ANOTHER CONCERN. THE RUSSIAN SAFETY RECORD IS

  12. We live in a modern slavery today. Poor and "uneducated" people in third world countries work harder than anyone in the western world so that wealthy and "educated" people can drink their coffee in the morning or smoke or eat various fruits and veggies at the price of keeping those people outside and never give them a chance to immigrate and have a better life for themselves and their children.

  18. I think the grate big U S A is run 🏃‍♀️ by a child 🧒. That man got that big because of his father and it all got to his head.That what happens when we keep giving to our adult children every thing they do not comprehend or value hard work.That is why he have his family, in-law and a million others who is in his fat head running the country. He should have stick to making money, building hotels and running woman and changing wife’s.Running America is not a family business. God have mercy on America when he is done with her.
