Ed Schultz talks to Sheldon Whitehouse about tomorrow's torture hearings and on why Dick Cheney is speaking out in public the way he is.

Schultz: Senator, do you want to give us your opinion tonight why you think the former Vice President continually goes out and does these interviews? Is he ginning up support in case there are some legal ramifications down the road involving both him and the former President?

Whitehouse: Well he wouldn't be the first potential defendent to try to influence a potential jury pool. I think this would probably be the largest scale effort of that variety, but certainly there's a very intense messaging program going on and I think one of the things that these hearings will reveal is that the messaging program is very false and very misleading. But we want to develop it slowly and carefully through the evidence rather than running around making a lot of wild and unfactual assertions as the Vice President I believe is doing.
