Donald Trump, Jr. Meeting With Russian Lawyer Alleged ‘Treasonous’ | AM Joy | MSNBC


>>> THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS INVESTIGATING WHETHER THIS MAN, JOHN WONG, TRIED TO SELL POLITICAL INFLUENCE TO THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT THROUGH POLITICAL CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY >> OBVIOUSLY IT WOULD BE A VERY SERIOUS MATTER FOR THE UNITED STATES IF ANY COUNTRY WERE TO ATTEMPT TO FUNNEL FUNDS TO ONE OF OUR POLITICAL PARTI PARTIES Y REASON WHATEVER

>> WELCOME BACK TO "AM JOY" BACK IN THE LATE '90s ONE OF THE BIGGEST SCANDALS KNOWN AS CHINAGATE THE ALLEGED EFFORT BY CHINA TO BUY INTO THE U

S ELECTION BY DIRECTING CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE DNC QUEUE THE REPUBLICAN OUTRAGE THAT ENSUED >> ALLEGATIONS OF MONEY LAUNDERING AND UNDUE AND IMPROPER ILLEGAL PARTICIPATION IN OUR ELECTORAL PROCESS >> YET TODAY IN THE MIDST OF RUSSIAGATE KNOWING THAT THE PRESIDENT'S SON MET W WITH A KREMLIN CONNECTED LAWYER AND FORMER RUSSIAN INTELLIGENCE OFFICER AND WHO KNOWS WHO ELSE FROM THE CAMPAIGN WHAT ARE WE GETTING FROM THE CAMPAIGN? MOSTLY SHRUG EMOJIS

ENING TO US WITH IS RICHARD PAINTER AND FORMER CHIEF WHITE HOUSE ETHICS LAWYER UNDER GEORGE W BUSH AND SIMON ROSENBERG ANAND, YOU TWEETED OUT SOMETHING THAT INSPIRED THIS SEGMENT YOU WERE ASKED WHERE IS RED AMERICA'S PATRIOTISM? NEVER HAS IT BEEN MORE NECESSARYSSARY

WHAT DID YOU MEAN? >> I KIND OF HAVE A THEORY ABOUT HOW WHAT THE DIFFERENT SIDES OF A COUNTRY DO FOR EACH OTHER WE OFTEN DON'T THINK OF EACH OTHER AS DOING SOMETHING COLLABORATIVE BUT IF YOU THINK ABOUT THERE BEING RED AMERICA AND BLUE AMERICA OR LEFT AND RIGHT, I THINK PART OF WHAT WE DO IS WATCH DIFFERENT FLANKS, AND WE ACTUALLY OUTSOURCE THE JOB OF WATCHING CERTAIN THINGS TO THE OTHER SO THE LEFT IS BETTER, BLUE AMERICA IS BETTER AT POLICING EQUALITY, AND JUST MAKING SURE THAT'S OKAY AND ACTUALLY WE ALL SORT OF VALUE EQUALITY BUT WE OUTSOURCE THAT TO THE LEFT, CARING FOR THE MEEKEST THE THING THAT WE OUTSOURCE TO THE RIGHT THAT IN A WAY EVEN THE LEFT DEPENDS ON THE RIGHT TO WATCH OVER IS PATRIOTISM, NATIONAL INTEGRITY, THE SECURITY, THE STRENGTH OF OUR MILITARY, AND WE ALL AMERICANS VALUE THAT, BUT WE KIND OF ASK THE RIGHT TO SPECIALIZE SO WHEN THIS COUNTRY IS THE VICTIM OF A CYBER ATTACK, WHEN ONE OF THE MOST HOSTILE FOREIGN NATIONS ATTACKS US, ATTACKS OUR DEMOCRACY, IT'S AN AMAZING, RIPE MOMENT, FOR EVERYTHING THE RIGHT HAS BEEN PREPARING FOR, THIS IS YOUR MOMENT

THIS IS THE MOMENT TO STEP UP AND BE PATRIOTIC, AND FIGHT FOR OUR SECURITY THIS IS THE MOMENT TO TURN IN TO ACTION, AND SO IT IS A PROFOUNDLY DISAPPOINTING THING WHEN OUR KIND OF PAUL REVERE LOOKING OUT AT THAT SCENE SAYS NOTHING >> YES >> DOESN'T CRY OUT, DOESN'T WARN US AND IN FACT JUST SHRUGS >> AND IN FACT, JUST WE HAVE A LITTLE MASH UP OF SOME OF THE RESPONSES INCLUDING THE SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE TO YOUR VERY POINT

THESE ARE SOME OF THE RESPONSES THAT WE'VE HEARD TO THIS AMAZING NEWS ABOUT THIS LATEST RUSSIA MEETING HERER SOME REPUBLICAN RESPONSES >> DO I THINK IT'S APPROPRIATE? I THINK I PROBABLY WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME THING IT'S OPPOSITION RESEARCH AND YOU KNOW, ANYBODY THAT'S BEEN IN AN ELECTION YOU'RE ALWAYS LOOKING TO GET THE UPPER HAND, AND IF SOMEBODY COMES TO US AND SAYS HEY, WE'VE GOT INFORMATION ON AN OPPONENT, YEAH, I THINK THAT'S AN APPROPRIATE THING TO DO >> WAS IT ILLEGAL? WAS IT, IS THAT A MATERIAL REALITY WHAT THEY DID WAS WRONG, WAS ILLEGAL? I THINK WE'LL GET TO THE FACTS ON THAT

>> I SUPPORTED BOB MUELLER BEING APPOINTED SPECIAL COUNSEL AND I THINK WE NEED TO LET HIM AND HIS TEAM AND OUR INVESTIGATORS HERE DO THEIR JOBS AND FOLLOW THESE LEADS WHEREVER THEY MAY LEAD, WHEREVER THEY MAY GO AND FOLLOW THE FACTS >> RICHARD PAINTER YOU'RE VOCAL THE REPUBLICAN PARTY THAT RESPONSE IS INADEQUATE IS THIS JUST PURE PARTISANSHIP, THERE'S A REPUBLICAN IN THE WHITE HOUSE, WE HAVE TO DEFEND HIM NO MATTER WHAT HE DOES, IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT DO YOU THINK IS AT WORK HERE IN THE FAILURE OF REPUBLICANS TO HAVE THAT SORT OF, YOU KNOW, THIS IS THE PARTY OF NOW NATIONALISM WHERE IS THE NATIONALISM? >> WELL, THE REPUBLICANS I THINK YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT ARE A LOT OF THE POLITICIANS AND THE VARIOUS TALKING HEADS SHOW UP ON THE TV SHOWS, BUT ORDINARY REPUBLICANS AT LEAST OUT WHERE I LIVE IN MINNESOTA AND MANY PARTS OF THE COUNTRY AREN'T STUPID, AND KNOW WHAT'S GOING ON HERE

I MEAN, HOW MANY KGB AGENTS AND FORMER KGB DO YOU HAVE TO HAVE IN A ROOM FOR THERE TO BE COLLUSION? IT'S OBVIOUS THERE WAS COLLUSION, AND JUST HAVING KELLYANNE CONWAY STAND ON THE WHITE HOUSE LAWN WAS A SILLY SIGN ISN'T GOING TO CHANGE THAT AND THIS ISN'T ABOUT LEFT VERSUS RIGHT THIS IS ABOUT RIGHT VERSUS WRONG THIS IS ABOUT THE INDEPENDENCE OF OUR OWN COUNTRY AND OUR ELECTORAL PROCESS, AND I THINK EVERY AMERICAN NEEDS TO STAND UP AGAINST THIS TYPE OF THING AND I SAY IF WE CAUGHT THE AMERICAN COMMUNIST PARTY DOING THIS KIND OF THING, AND MAYBE THEY WERE, IF THEY'D BEEN CAUGHT WE WOULD HAVE HAD THEM LOCKED UP DURING THE COLD WAR PERIOD, AND WE HAD STATUTES TO DEAL WITH THIS IT IS TREASONOUS CONDUCT WE DON'T NEED THE TREASON PROVISION OF THE CONSTITUTION, WHICH WOULD APPLY IN WAR TIME, WHEN WE'RE DECLARED WAR, BUT WE HAVE DEALT WITH THIS TYPE OF CONDUCT BEFORE, WHETHER THROUGH ESPIONAGE STATUTES, COMPUTER HACKING STATUTES, FALSE STATEMENTS STATUTES, CAMPAIGN FINANCE LAWS, AND INDEED I HAVE TO SAY THIS IS A MEETING THAT EVEN IF YOU HAD IT WITH AN AMERICAN GROUP, A 501-C4, YOU WOULD PROBABLY BE VIOLATING CAMPAIGN FINANCE LAWS THROUGH COORDINATION AND THAT'S A LEGAL TERM USUALLY USED IN CAMPAIGN FINANCE

DO YOU NOT COORDINATE WITH OUTSIDE GROUPS YOU TURN THESE MEETINGS DOWN YOU HAVE TO OR IT CAN BE REGARDED AS A CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION IN VIOLATION OF THE CAMPAIGN FINANCE LAWS I'M SHOT THIS HAPPENED AND PEOPLE ARE DEFENDING IT THIS IS GOING TO BE A VERY, VERY BAD SITUATION FOR THE REPUBLICAN PARTY IF WE DON'T GET OUR ACT TOGETHER AND FACE FACTS AND PUT A STOP TO THE LIES

>> AND YET SIMON, I THINK BACK TO THE '90s, ALL OF THE THINGS THAT REPUBLICANS WERE APOPLECTIC ABOUT, THEY IMPEACHED BILL CLINTON OVER HIS AFFAIR WITH MONICA LEWINSKY, STARTED WITH H THE WHITEWATER DEAL AND WENT ON FROM THERE, ALL THE OUTRAGE OF SELLING THE LINCOLN BEDROOM, YOU REMEMBER THAT SCANDAL YOU HAD JOHN McCAIN SAYING THEY TOOK IT TO A LEVEL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE FIND ALMOST DISGUSTING, THE PRESIDENT MISLED AMERICAN PEOPLE SAID REPRESENTATIVE DAN BURTON OF INDIANA, CHIEF OF THE OVERSIGHT PANEL, AND YET NOW WE LITERALLY HAVE REPUBLICANS THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO COME ON AIR SAYING, TED YOHO, REPUBLICAN OF FLORIDA, HE, TOO, WOULD TAKE A MEETING WITH A LAWYER REPRESENTED AS COMING FROM THE REPUBLICAN GOVERNMENT YOU WROTE A PIECE IN WHICH THE WNC NEEDS TO STEP UP AND PREVENT FUTURE INCURSIONS INTO OUR ELECTION WHY WOULD YOU THINK THAT'S POSSIBLE IF THEY'RE NOT WILLING TO CONDEMN THIS CONDUCT? >> I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT TO RECOGNIZE WHAT'S DIFFERENT FROM THE '90s AND NOW IS THAT THE ENTIRE REPUBLICAN LEADERSHIP IS COMPLICIT IN WHAT HAPPENED IN THE HACK IN 2016 YOU HAD THE RNC, REINCE PRIEBUS AND SEAN SPICER SENDING OUT EMAILS EVERY DAY PROMOTING INFORMATION THEY KNEW WAS FROM RUSSIA AND AIDED AND ABETTED THE CAMPAIGN MY OWN VIEW IS SEAN SPICER AND REINCE PRIEBUS GOT THEIR JOBS IN THE WHITE HOUSE BECAUSE THEY WERE SO INSTRUMENTAL IN HELPING MAKE THE RUSSIAN CAMPAIGN A SUCCESS

THE SAME IS TRUE WITH PAUL RYAN AND THE HOUSE REPUBLICANS THEY USED THE MATERIALS IN HOUSE RACE AFTER HOUSE RACE AFTER HOUSE RACE SO ALL OF THESE REPUBLICAN LEADERS WERE COMPLICIT IN THE ACTUAL ACTION OF THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT IN 2016, SO THEY'RE DEFENDING THEIR PRESIDENT BECAUSE THEY WERE PART OF THE CRIME, AND THIS IS WHY THE SCANDAL IS SO WIDE-REACHING AND WHY IF YOU LOOK AT BOB BAUER'S GREAT PIECE ABOUT THE CONCEPT OF AIDING AND ABETTING, IT IS CLEAR THAT SEAN SPICER, REINCE PRIEBUS, PAUL RYAN, OTHERS WHO WERE PART OF THE R TRIPLE C ARE ALL LIABLE FOR THE AIDING AND ABETTING STATUTE AND COULD BE PROSECUTED AND GO TO JAIL SO I THINK PART OF THE REASON THERE IS SUCH A WIDE HELD DEFENSE IS THAT THE ENTIRE REPUBLICAN PARTY WAS IN ON THE CRIME IN 2016, AND THEY'RE DEFENDING THEMSELVES >> IS THAT IT? IS THIS JUST COMPLICITY AT WORK? >> I THINK ALL OF THOSE POINTS ARE REALLY RIGHT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT THIS AS A MATTER OF LEGAL COMPLIANCE BUT IT'S NOT JUST A MATTER OF LEGAL COMPLIANCE ALONE

IF I COULD BE IN A ROOM AND MAYBE IN A SENSE I AM RIGHT NOW THOSE REPUBLICANS WHO ARE COMPLICIT, I GUARANTEE YOU, IF YOU HAVE ANY SENSE OF HISTORY, 50 YEARS FROM NOW, EVERYBODY WILL THINK THIS WAS A BAD THING TO HAVE HAPPENED >> YES >> AND THEY WILL SIT ON YOUR LAP AND GRANDCHILDREN WILL ASK YOU AND YOU'LL HAVE TO HAVE AN ANSWER AND RIGHT NOW THAT ENTIRE PARTY LEADERSHIP IS UNPREPARED TO ANSWER THEIR GRANDCHILDREN >> I THINK MORE THAN THAT I THINK THEY ARE PREPARED TO AGGRESSIVELY MOVE IN DONALD TRUMP'S DIRECTION IN TERMS OF HIS VIEWS ON RUSSIA

TUCKER KRRLSAN ON EXCHANGE INTERVIEW IN WHICH PART OF WHAT HE'S BEEN ARGUING BECAUSE THE UNITED STATES WAS WILLING TO COLLABORATE WITH JOSEPH STALIN AGAINST THE NAZIS THEREFORE WE SHOULD BE FINE WITH MOVING AGGRESSIVELY IN THE DIRECTION OF COOPERATION AND COLLABORATION WITH RUSSIA AT LARGE, DO MORE OF IT THIS IS TUCKER CARLSSON AND MAX BOOTH >> RIGHT NOW YOU ARE SUPPORTING DONALD TRUMP EVEN AND YOU'RE LAUGHING ABOUT THE FACT THAT RUSSIA IS INTERFERING IN OUR ELECTION PROCESS >> RIGHT >> THAT IS IMMORAL

TUCKER, SHOULD WE COLLABORATE WITH RUSSIA COMMITTING WAR CRIMES IN SYRIA? IS THAT YOUR ADVICE? A COUNTRY DEDICATED DEATH TO AMERICA, IS THAT YOUR ADVICE AT THE MOMENT? WE DO NOT SHARE COMMON GOALS WITH RUSSIA BECAUSE RUSSIA IS TRYING TO FURTHER THE MURDEROUS BASHAR ASSAD REGIME AND THE HEGEMONY IN SYRIA THAT IS NOT OUR GOAL THEY BELIEVE IN DEATH TO AMERICA, WE SHOULD NOT BE COOPERATING >> RICH ART PAINTER, I WANT TO GIVE YOU LAST WORD WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THE FACT NOT ONLY IS THERE AN EXCUSING OF THE RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN THE ELECTION, BUT NOW THERE IS THIS NEW LINE THAT'S BEING RUN BY SOME MEMBERS OF THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AS WELL AS PEOPLE LIKE TUCKER CARLSON WE OUGHT TO COLLABORATIVE WITH THE RUSSIANS AFTER WHAT THEY DID IN OUR ELECTION? >> I THINK IT'S A VERY, VERY DANGEROUS LINE TO PURSUE

RUSSIA'S BEEN TRYING TO DESTABILIZE WESTERN DEMOCRACIES FOR 100 YEARS AT LEAST SINCE THE 1917 RUSSIAN REVOLUTION WHAT THIS IS ABOUT IS EXCUSING THE CONDUCT OF THESE PEOPLE, WHO WILL DO ANYTHING TO WIN, AND I TRIED TO TEACH MY KIDS THIS IN SPORTS YOU FIGHT HARD YOU WANT TO WIN, BUT YOU DON'T CHEAT YOU DON'T GO AND HURT THE OTHER PLAYERS

IT'S VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE UNDERSTAND THAT THIS TYPE OF BETRAYAL IS NOT ACCEPTABLE, JUST BECAUSE THEY DID IT IN ORDER TO WIN AND THAT'S ALL THEY CARED ABOUT WAS WINNING THIS ELECTION, FOR DONALD TRUMP, AT ANY COST, INCLUDING ANY COST TO THE UNITED STATES IT'S TERRIBLE >> I AGREE WITH ANAND HISTORY IS GOING TO JUDGE THIS HARSHLY ANAND, RICHARD, SIMON, THANK YOU VERY MUCH APPRECIATE IT
