The apparent attempt at humiliation of many leaders that state's GOP including pro-gun Republicans, leading to the expulsion of Jones for daring to speak up for gun control, is now null and void.

Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with what she calls an "unprecedented" and "frankly shameful" day in American politics. The Tennessee House took up resolutions to expel three Democratic lawmakers, not for breaking any laws.

Former St. Rep. Justin Jones, who represents the district in Nashville where last month's shooting took place, and who was ultimately expelled by Tennessee House Republicans, joins Joy Reid live to speak out on his explusion from the legislative chamber right before the vote that would lead to the explusion of former St. Rep.

Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with what was an historic day in lower Manhattan, as America learned the full extent of the allegations against the former president--the first American president to be charged with a crime. Donald Trump was uncharateristically grim and silent while entering the courtroom, ignoring questions from reporters before pleading not guilty to 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in the first degree. After the twice-impeached former president's arraignment, Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg addressed reporters about the importance of pursuing the case against Donald Trump. After calling Trump's indictment "Karma," Dr. Yusef Salaam, a member of the Exonerated Central Park Five, joins Joy on turning the ad that Donald Trump created calling for his death and that of the others also erroneously accused, into a campaign ad for his current run for New York City Council. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

Former Manhattan DA Cy Vance revealed why it has taken so long to get to this point, just hours from the finger-printing of the first criminally indicted former president.

A Manhattan grand jury has voted to indict Donald Trump for his role in the hush money payments to adult film star Stormy Daniels during his 2016 presidential campaign. This is the first time in history this has happened. Two sources familiar with the situation told NBC News that Trump's attorneys have been notified that he has been indicted. The exact charges are unknown, because indictments are typically filed in court under seal after a grand jury's vote in New York. The Manhattan district attorney was known to be focusing on a felony charge of falsifying business records. It is a charge that carries a maximum prison sentence of four years. Trump's attorney told NBC News that he is expected to surrender to the Manhattan DA's office early next week. Joy Reid and her expert guests bring you the latest details in this major developing story on The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with a new symbol taking over America--the AR-15. Many Republicans celebrate the AR-15 despite the fact that mass murderers routinely use it for its intended purpose, which is to quickly kill people. Joy and her guests discuss how that weapon of war became so powerful politically for the right, and how Republicans are able to supress gun control measures the vast majority of Americans, including gun owners, support. Plus, we expose how the right is using the Nashville mass murder to put a target on the backs of transgender Americans. Additionally, in the battle over TikTok: Will Congress actually ban the wildly popular app? And is it any more of a danger than Elon Musk's Twitter or Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook?

Former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, widely considered to be one of the greatest to ever do the job and the current Speaker Emerita, joins Joy on this, and the need to pass an assault weapons ban in the wake of the Nashville school shooting. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.
Joy Reid leads this episode of The ReidOut with a tragedy that is unique to America--another school massacre, this time in Nashville, Tennessee. First lady and teacher, Dr. Jill Biden, responded to the latest horrific act of mass violence calling for change, as politicians in states like Tennessee apparently worry more about drag shows and banning books than about actually protecting children. Also in this epidose, public protests in Israel and elsewhere against a rising wave of authoritarianism abound, while here in the U.S., there is a shocking lack of urgency in repudiating the conspiratorial and violent rhetoric of our homegrown, suspected autocrats-in-waiting. Meanwhile, Donald Trump continues to lash out at the Manhattan DA, as the Manhattan grand jury hears from a key player in Trump's alleged hush money scheme. All this and more in this edition of The ReidOut on MSNBC.

In this edition of The ReidOut, Dr. Jason Johnson fills in for Joy Reid. We cover how a Manhattan grand jury is preparing to vote soon on an indictment of Donald Trump related to a hush money payment made to porn star Stormy Daniels. As we await their decision, there are several major developments on other fronts. A judge says the special counsel has provided sufficient evidence that Donald Trump committed a crime through his attorneys in the Mar-a-Lago classified documents case, and that Trump attorney Evan Corcoran should be compelled to tell a grand jury everything he knows about that alleged criminal conduct. Our legal and political experts discuss these matters and more. Plus, in this installment of our "State of Disunion" series, we cover how most Americans are concerned about about fair wages, affordable housing, solid schools that are safe and safe drinking water.
