prepared to testify she warned the white house michael flynn was lying about talking to the russian ambassador. a warning that came three weeks before flynn was fired as national security adviser. yates expected to tell a senate judiciary committee she expressed grave concerns. flynn could potentially be compromised refuting the white house account that yates gave officials a simple heads up. yates testimony set for monday, russia returns to center stage on capitol hill today. >> fbi director james comey goes before the senate judiciary committee where he'll be grilled about his announcement just before the election that the probe of hillary clinton's emails was back on. secretary clinton now with her most pointed comments on comey and the russians, president trump unleash as late night tweet storm venting his frustration. we have all of this wrapped up together. we begin with jim sciutto in washington. >> reporter: sources familiar with her account tell cnn that former acting attorney general sally yates is prepared to testify before the senate
judiciary committee next week. she gave a forceful warning to the white house regarding then national security adviser michael flynn nearly three weeks before he was fired. this contradicting the administration's version of events. in a private meeting january 26th, yates told white house counsel that flynn was lying when he denied in public and private that he had discussed u.s. sanctions on russia. in conversations with russia's ambassador to the u.s. sergey kislyak. his misleading comments yates explained made him vulnerable to being compromised by russia. yates meeting took place january 26th. on february 10th, president trump said he was unaware of reports on flynn. three days after that on february 13th, "the washington post" published a story that flynn had lied to vice president mike pence about his conversations with the russian ambassador. flynn resigned that night. yates testimony on may 8th will be the first time the former acting attorney general will publicly speak about that white house meeting. a source familiar with the
situation said yates will be limited on what she can tell the committee because many details involving flynn remain classified. yates previously scheduled appearance in front of the house intelligence committee you may remember was cancelled by chairman nunez, sparking outcry from democrats who believed he was trying to shield the white house from damaging new revelations. thank you, jim. hillary clinton meanwhile said she would have won the election if it were held on october 27th. speaking to cnn's christiane amanpour, the former candidate said she didn't let up on fbi director james comey. >> i was on the way to winning until a combination of jim comey's letter on october 28th and russian wikileaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off. >> interviewed by christiane amanpour at a women for women international event in new york,
secretary clinton did take what she called absolute personal responsibility for her loss. >> but she said she's now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance. she took a swipe that's sure to i rx president trump. >> die win more than 3 million votes than my opponent. so it's like -- really. i feel a tweet coming. fine. you know, better that than interfering with foreign affairs if he wants to tweet about me. i'm happy to be the, you know, the diversion. >> so what is behind clinton's re-entry into the spotlight. a confidant tells cnn she's not running for anything she's not hiding. christiane amanpour will join us at 5:30 this morning to discuss her conversation with clinton and more. helping us to break this
down let's join zak wolf from washington, managing editor for cnn politics.com. great to see you. let's start with hillary clinton there taking what she calls responsibility for her loss. she mentioned msyogny, wick leagues, comey as reasons. i didn't hear pennsylvania, michigan or wisconsin mentioned. did she take responsibility for the loss? >> taking responsibility, but james comey and the russians and all that. at the end of the day if what democrats take away from this election it was james comey and russians fault that's not going to be something that helps them grow into the future. so, here we have this kind of stunning electoral defeat at the hands of donald trump. you can pin that solely in the arms of james comey and the russians. there are real fundamental problems with the democrats message in the rust belt and how people there felt and that's probably i think at the end of the day a more important message
for them to internalize. now at the same time this russian stuff continues to be very interesting and we're going to hear from james comey later today. so none of these conversations are going to go anywhere. but, you know, i think democrats need to be careful in what they take away here. >> when you look at that tweet storm from the president doesn't sound like he was a big fan of james comey by any stretch of the imagination. one wonders what the relationship is like there. i want to ask real quickly -- you can see it right there, trump-rush story was an excuse used which the democrats as justification for losing the election. per maps trump just ran a great campaign. i want to listen quickly to what hillary clinton said about being an activist and i want to talk on the other side about who is emerging from this democratic party as a leader here if she's
going to write books, give some speeches and just be an activist. listen. >> i'm now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance. >> part of the resistance. almost like a "star wars" thing. so who is going to run this resistance? >> that's a great question. i think they are trying to figure it out. as long as she's out there on that stage, giving big speeches, you know, appearing, she will take up some of the oxygen for democrats. i don't think it's something she's necessarily running into, trying to take up oxygen but she will take some of it up. that being said there are a lot of democrats out there, some folks in the senate, you know, joe biden is out there giving speeches, elizabeth warren, bernie sanders, these are the obvious names. they are also some of the older names. democrats might want to look to
their bench and cultivate there, some people in the senate, some governors out there. they need to get the next level up, i think. >> all eyes on sally yates former acting attorney general who was fired by president trump. according to our reporting she did warn the white house about michael flynn but let's go back a little before that. here's sean spicer february 14th on sally yates and michael flynn. let's play this. >> so just to be clear, the acting attorney general informed the white house counsel that they wanted to give quote a heads up to us on some comments that may have seemed in conflict with what he had sent the vice president out in particular. the white house counsel informed the president immediately, the president asked him to conduct a review of already there was a legal situation there. that was immediately determined that there wasn't. >> what's the problem and where
is the story headed next? >> the story is headed back to the headlines. michael flynn has been gone from the white house for some time now. the controversy around him and his contacts with the russians and the lies i think that he apparently told to his bosses and publicly are something that continue to sort of be hung around the neck of the white house. especially going back to hillary clinton. all this stuff is tied in together with the issue of russians and meddling. is somewhat separate. there are all these contacts we have with russians and people working at the white house. so this whole, you know, creeping, you know -- i don't even know how -- the rockets of this thing are ensnared around everyone in such a way having sally yates basically coming up saying oh, no sean spicer was not complete pli accurate there if that's in fact she does end up saying is not something the white house wants to hear.
>> what's your prognosis for health care reform? >> it's been on life support for a good long while. some signs of life maybe so to speak. every single week. we talked about this in the last month or so ever since it failed every week. is it coming back? look, i think republicans it's clear weighs they keep trying to bring it back that they really need this to happen. so, it wouldn't surprise me if at some point i want does that they are able to sort of repeal obamacare, at least in the house. then they have to move on in the senate. i'll believe it when i see it. >> thank you sir. president trump set to host palestinian president mahmoud abbas. can the pair find common ground on the middle east conflict. we're live with a preview.

prfrp hosts palestinian leader mamoud abbas at the white house today. palestinian officials describe abbas as hopeful and eager to engage mr. trump despite the president's divisive rhetoric about muslims on the campaign trail. so what's on the agenda? let's bring in cnn's ian lee who is on the west bank. what are they hopeful and eager about, ian? >> reporter: good morning. one thing they will do is get to know each other. this is the first time the two leaders have met. expect that. one thing the palestinians say they like from president trump is the direct diplomacy. not going through the state department but talking directly to the white house. there is a laundry list by president abbas for president trump and that includes settlements. president abbas wants more pressure from the white house to the israeli to stop settlement construction. another thing is going to be embassy, moving it from tel aviv to jerusalem which is deeply
unpopular with the palestinians, although yesterday vice president mike pence said that there's still serious considerations about that move. deeply unpopular with plinz but like jordan, saudi arabia and egypt. expect them to talk about the peace process, something that president trump has called the ultimate deal. when it comes to president trump there's the possibility that he'll bring up the palestinians paying money to the family members of those who were either killed or jailed by the israeli. now the i would says say this is the sponsorship of terrorism, so there's a lot on the table today. >> jared kushner will re-emerge in the spotlight. haven't heard that name in a while. we thought he would be in the middle of middle east negotiations. >> during election candidate trump swept into the office as champion of the working class practicing to crackdown on wall street excessive but here's president trump's treasury
secretary reminding bankers at an elite conference in beverly hills he's focused on relaxing financial regulation. >> i know there's a few people in this room that care a lot about that. you should all thank me for your bank stocks doing better. >> treasury secretary of the united states telling bankers to thank him for personally enriching their stocks. very rare. very rare. in fact, i've never heard a treasury secretary boasting about enriching bankers. former treasury secretary larry summers a democrat wrote i cannot ever conceive the other sex making such a statement. true. bank stocks have had a great run under trump soaring between 20% and 40% since the election. it shows you just how much money bankers are making because wall street likes trump's talk about tax reform and deregulation and especially the promise to quote do a big number on dodd-frank. in fact, the house financial
services committee is expected to vote on a gop bill today that would scale back the obama era financial reform. democrats fiercely pose this and delayed voting overnight. republicans blame dodd-frank for the country's anemic growth. democrats say repealing it would help wall street at the cost of main street. i just remember so much of the election was about how hillary clinton was in the pocket of goldman sachs and the bankers and for an american treasury secretary to sit in front of an elite audience of bankers in beverly hills you can thank me for making you richer the. >> goldman sachs in the center of his administration certainly did not do the president any favors, counters his entire narrative. nothing has moved the supporters one bit. one day after being subjected to racial slurs at fenway park, baltimore's adam jones gets a very different kind of reception from red sox fans.

both made me turn around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. that goes beyond assuming beingredients are safe...ood to knowing they are. going beyond expectations... because our pets deserve it. beyond. natural pet food.

tweet storm venting his frustration about that. we begin our coverage with national security correspondent jim sciutto in washington. >> reporter: sources familiar with her account tell cnn former acting attorney general sally yates is prepared to testify before the senate judiciary committee next week. but she gave a forceful warning to the white house regarding then national security adviser michael flynn nearly three weeks before he was fired. this contradicting the administration's version of events. in a private meeting january 26th yates told white house counsel that flynn was lying when he denied in public and private that he had discussed u.s. sanctions on russia. in conversations with russia's ambassador to the u.s. sergey kislyak. his misleading comments yates explained made him vulnerable to being compromised by russia. yates meeting took place january 26th. on february 10th two weeks later president trump said he was unaware of reports on flynn. three days after that on february 13th "the washington post" published a story that
flynn had lied to vice president mike pence about his conversations with the russian ambassador. flynn resigned that night. yates testimony on may 8th will be the first time the former acting attorney general will publicly speak about that white house meeting. source familiar with the situation said yates will be limited on what she can tell the committee because many details involving flynn remain classified. yates previously scheduled appearance in front of the house intelligence committee you may remember was cancelled by chairman nunez. that move sparking outcry from democrats who believed he was trying to shield the white house from damaging new revelations. shut, thanks. let's break this down. very busy detain washington. cnn politics digital managing editor zachary wolf is with us. you say the yates testimony will be enormous. >> reporter: yeah. i think so. you know, this michael flynn issue and the issue of russian contacts keeps coming back again and again to this white house
and this is going to be somebody who has not spoken, clearly has not tried to seize her moment in the limelight but sort of kept below the radar and she's coming out and will apparently tell this subcommittee that it wasn't just a hey white house, he may have said some wrong things, it was a full throated warning about michael flynn. and that's not what they want to, you know, as the white house tries to put this behind them. >> that's what they want to put behind them but right ahead of them is this health care battle. it looks like a razor thin margin as they try to get to 216 for this new health care plan. the undecideds are obviously the key here. 16 -- they cannot lose but one republican vote before they lose this bill in the house. what's next in this narrative? >> reporter: well, what's next depends on a lot what happens with that one vote, if they can keep it, they can pass something
and maybe get it over to the senate where we start all over again with a whole new cast of characters as they try to fight over this and come up with their own version of the bill or pass this one. if they don't get it, at some point republicans have to move on to their other priorities. they've spent weeks and weeks since their initial failure trying to somehow make this bill work. but at the same time it's one of their main campaign promises. they are going to have to find a way to do something about it. >> find a way to talk about pre-existing conditions in a way that will satisfy the moderates and all those people who don't like the affordable care act because it doesn't go far enough. let's talk about the shutdown option. the president yesterday dropping this bomb shell that maybe everybody just needs a good shutdown to get its act together. the budget director standing in front of the podium walking that back. let's listen to what he said. >> it's not a goal, okay.
it's not a negotiating tool. but to the extent the president advocating one today if you want to imagine what a good shutdown is, one that fixes this town. drives the message back home it was as broken as they thought it was when they voted for donald trump. >> reporters have a lot more wes when sean spicer took the podium. let's play a little bit of sean spicer's nonresponse. >> sean. sean. what about the putin call. >> poor sean that will be the ring tone on his phone. sean. that would be funny. what do you make of that moment? >> i mean, you know, the president answering for president's tweets i think is one of the most difficult parts of sean spicer's job. you saw mulvaney there do a better job of it saying, you
know, we're not trying to shut down the government but if that's what needs happen in order to fix this town, i guess, sob it. i don't think any republican out there really wants to have a shut down except for maybe donald trump apparently if you're going to believe that tweet. but, you can't really see how they will achieve a lot of their policy objectives unless they can unify as a party and peel off some democrats. democrats were crowing and claiming victory about this latest short term spending bill because it didn't do a lot of the things that republicans said it was going to do. but the numbers just aren't there for republicans right now so they have to figure out a way to shake things up somehow. >> you mentioned republicans. they were very clear about how they thought about the president's tweets, quote, for john cornyn, i don't think the
american people elected president trump and republican majorities in both houses to shut down the government. senator flake said no, we don't need a governmental shutdown. we shouldn't change senate rules on the legislative filibuster. how does that complicate the mission for republicans in the house and in the senate? >> reporter: well, i mean their mission is so complicated on so many different fronts. they have to reach 60 votes on major pieces of legislation and spending bills and they don't have 60 votes and democrats are clearly not going to help them ever. it seems. it's pretty clear. some things have to give here in some way. it's just not clear at this point what it will be. >> zach wolf, nice to see you this morning. the u.s. auto boom might be over. has it peaked just as president trump is counting on it to add
more jobs? car sales saw a big drop in april. take a look at the big three detroit companies. sales fell as much as 7%. overall u.s. sales were down almost 5%. the industry has been on a winning streak since those bail outs in 2009 helped by a covering economy and by cheap gas prices. demand has now cooled after seven straight years of big gains. consumer sentiment shy but spend cigarette down this year especially on big ticket items like cars. in fact, many analysts forecast auto sales will decline this year. an estimated 17.2 million in 2017 after that record 17.5 million last year. still a lot of cars but it shows you that this trend has peaked. the slow down in sales raises the prospects many companies may slow production. that runs counter to the president's plan he's been pushing car make froers duce more cars in the u.s. in an effort to create jobs. the white house has vowed to create 25 million new jobs in the next ten years.
auto industry a big part of that. >> consumer spending and consumer confidence do they usually match up? >> sometimes they don't. what we're looking for here is there some reason why consumers might feel like things have peaked or is this temporary. >> feel good but not good enough to spend. will hillary clinton really would have won if election were just days earlier? that and more of what she told our very own christiane amanpour when she joins us next. ray's always been different. last year, he said he was going to dig a hole to china. at&t is working with farmers to improve irrigation techniques. remote moisture sensors use a reliable network to tell them when and where to water. so that farmers like ray can compete in big ways.

fbi director off the hook. she says she would have won the election if it were held before that letter was released. >> those colts came in a wide ranging interview with cnn's chief international correspondent christiane amanpour and she joins us here in new york this morning. riveting to see her come out of the shadows and sit down and talk. >> it was really vital, because, you know, she has this persona that's endlessly dissected on the campaign trail and here she was in a room full of supporters on an issue she cared about. this was the annual gala for women for women international, all about empowering women around the world for important economic peace and security reasons. and so she came to tell the story, not just of the election but of what it means to be a woman in this world and how she believes also the lingering, very deep mysgony in this
country had a lot to do with her loss. >> she said if that election was held on october 27th she would have won. a poll on april 23rd a week ago showed she would lose the popular vote today because more of her supporters have abandoned ship, 85% of them said they would support her versus 96 for donald trump. has she not yet put her finger on why people haven't related to her? >> well, look, today compared with september, they are two different realities. we live in a complete lifr different reality. >> you think more people would have supported her? >> i don't cover american politics. she came to talk about this. this wasn't a political interview. hillary clinton was coming to enter the political fray and i didn't ask her if she would run again. she came with a very interesting 20/20 hindsight vision what went wrong. had i more opportunity i would have pressed her more.
mrs. clun in 2008 during the primaries you won those big white working class states. you lost the primaries to obama because of the ground game. were you fighting the last war? the w war. what about wisconsin. the fact of the matter is she also came to play with some very important messages for women in this country. that we still have a problem where women are structurally impeepded from equal pay for equal pay. that those kind of laws in cities and states where women are asked what's your salary and they make tiny little jump from there have to be reorganized. then she had incredibly important things to say about how we deal with north korea right now, what about russia, what about syria? we really are on the brink of multiple crises and she had a laser-like prescription for how to deal with those issues. >> there are plenty of clinton
supporters who were watching those moments, heartbroken because they thought she would be their president and she's not. you asked her specifically about misogyny. this is what they are talking about. let's listen to that exchange. >> how are you a victim of misogyny and why do you think you lost the majority of the white female vote. >> yes, i do think it played a role. other things did as well. every day that goes by we learn more about the unprecedented interference including from a foreign power whose leader is not a member of my fan club. and so i think it is, it is real. it is very much a part of the landscape politically and socially and economically. >> you can see that flash where we cut away from the last term the audience -- >> i asked a question yeah,
really? people in that room who have been working for women's issues all their lives who themselves had probably to yank themselves up by their boot straps, enter the fray only to have a series of inequalities thrown at them totally related. this is a major thing that as you know, again, for the health of our societies, for the health of gdp, for the health of peace and security you have to bring gender equity to play in an absolute way. she's going to speak to world leaders, she will do the commencement the end of the month and this is where people say she launched her political career as the first-ever graduate commencement speaker. very interesting to hear what she says to the girls there, the young women going into this world. >> you mentioned this about salary history. people who study white women make less than men. some states are starting to ban
that. >> it has to happen more of that. you put a disadvantage right on the table before the job is even been taken. and you know that, i think it's an extra three months a year women have to work to make the same as the manmade at the end of that particular year. up until april what a man would make in the same job at the end of the year. >> that issue didn't resonate on the campaign trail for her. >> the white women voter as you talked to her. >> right. >> she told you she wants to be part of the resist wrans. what's her goal moving forward if she's not going run? >> that's for another day, another week. >> what does she want to accomplish? >> she wants to accomplish women rights. she wants to accomplish, as she said part of the rejustance. she means, again, i'm not a pop psychologist. when women's issues are being pushed to the back burner. she brought up the notion that
the president may make very severe cuts in the state department budget including issues that u.s. historically has done to help women abroad. and it's not just as she said little luxury items this, is to bring women up. this is to try to alleviate some of the poverty, some of the disaster areas they go to in order to bring them into the, you know, mainstream so they can effect the security of their country, so they can be empowered to look at their son or nephew or whoever i'm going off to kill an american in afghanistan or whatever but give the women the platform to be able to either report -- you know what i mean. just to make sure that society is more secure by empowering women. >> some felt that that hillary clinton you spoke to would have won the election. it's interesting. seemed to be a different -- >> as you know, you can imagine. she definitely was a different sort of -- yeah. but she did keep saying yeah i
