tv   CNN Tonight With Don Lemon  CNN  March 6, 2018 8:00pm-9:00pm PST

8:00 pm
we actually saved $50,000. and that's just one school, two semesters, three girls. together, we're building a better california. this is cnn tonight. i'm don lemon. it's 11:00 p.m. on of the east coast live with breaking news tonight on a white house in
8:01 pm
chaos. first the president and the porn star, stormy daniels who says she had a, quote, intimate relationship with trump, is suing the president to end their alleged hush agreement. claiming he never signed it. in the affidavit or in the lawsuit i should say the attorney for stormy daniels whose real name is stephanie clifford states that intimate relationship with trump began in 2006, continued well into 2007. much more on that in just a moment. plus the latest member of the trump white house to resign. his top economic adviser gary cocoaen. quit after clashing with the decision to combos tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. joining a long, long line, a long list of those who have left team trump. and in a tweet that could come under the hashtag don't let the door hit you on the way out, the president says many people want the job of chief economic
8:02 pm
advisers and promises to choose whyly. we will ask a member of the house intel committee that the president's lawyer michael cohen was provided secret information about intel committee testimony from a witness. a violation of committee rules. to recap, no chaos. there is nothing to see here. i want to bring in now sara side in ner and laura coates with more on the stormy daniels lawsuit. sarah good evening to you. and good are o good evening to you as well laura. and a porn sfar is suing the president to enthe hush agreement she entered into before the 2016 election. what more do you know. >> this is really, don, the first time there are public court documents that allege donald trump knew all about the hush money paid to adult film star and director stormy daniels before the presidential election. we looked at the dates, ten days before the presidential election. what's interesting is on the first page there is interesting
8:03 pm
information. you see all the aliases there. stephanie clifford is also known by her stage name stormy daniels. everybody knew that. but she is known by peggy pederson, a pseudonimo she wanted to use in this. look down further when it says plaintiff versus donald j. trump. he had an alias of david dennisonen. the consultants llc, the "wall street journal" reported earlier that's linked to mr. cohen. what's interesting that mr. cohen is not named as someone in this lawsuit. but he is mentioned quite repeatedly in the lawsuit itself. there are lots of different things. they have mentioned the $130,000 that has been reported that was paid to stormy daniels. the one thing that nobody did know is whether or not donald trump actually signed this agreement. now, these court documents show that he did not sign the
8:04 pm
non-disclosure agreement. and that gives him potential plausible dmieblt. saying his lawyer knew about it. dd. was for david dennisonen or donald trump and p.p., the peggy, the name you just saw. but what's signed is stephanie clifford, the real name of the adult film star stormy daniels. we also know that michael cohen, there is another page showing he signed the agreement as well, don. >> okay so let's bring in the lawyer and get some lawyerly advice here. laura, this case boils down to the fact that trump never signed the agreement itself. if trump's attorney signed it, why would it matter if he did? explain that. >> well, of course you already know if there are the ails that he was involved in some type of a contractual agreement to have hush money issued a week or two weeks before really the election in 2016 well it raises red flags and questions to think, well did the president of the united
8:05 pm
states, now president of the united states have an actual hand in this? or was this a rogue operation by somebody who was a loyalist to the president of the united states? and we already know that michael cohen is already being investigated by mueller's team and there is reporting necessarily about whether he had some ties to the ukraine and other prorussia organizations in his role in that. and so as a natural outcome or evolution of that investigation it seems this raises additional red flags. although we don't know if mueller is looking into this particular stormy daniels issue. we know he is looking at michael cohen. if he is, certainly his ties to the campaign, his ties to donald trump, and what he was willing to do to try to protect donald trump if these ails are true are going to raise the attention of mueller and his team. >> okay. so, does that void in contract that he didn't sign it? >> it doesn't necessarily void the contract. again, if it was intended to be
8:06 pm
this person donald dennisonen or whoever the name was. >> david. >> david dennisonen. i knew there was a married with children- or peg bund with are person in there. i knew that was part of it. but if that's part of it -- if he was supposed to be part of it then it could have potential to void it. but the bigger issue is about the non-disclosure. what really voids these agreements is if somebody breaks their end of the bargain and starts talking about the issue. and according to stormy daniels and her counsel the statements made by michael cohen that we're talking about even the payment of itself is the larger issue for the court to figure out if that voided it in and of itself. >> okay. >> the signature is almost a secondary issue at this point in time. >> it's easy to remember. d.d. and p.p. so listen. sarah, the president has denied. >> i can't dhie it. >> the president denied the affair ever occurred. the white house seems to downplay it process. this suit goes route right out and says they had a relationship. do they offer proof. >> they say the proof is in the
8:07 pm
non-disclosure agreement, the documents. why stein a non-disclosure agreement if nothing happened. and they also talk about the fact that it was signed and you see the date on there, literally ten days before the election. and that is, don, where we should definitely talk about why this matters. because some people say, look, donald trump was being donald trump. and he was with this person. and who cares. there are supporters that will say that as well. what does this have to do with anything? it has to do with federal election campaign finance laws. according to common cause who already filed a complaint with the se.c. saying if donald trump knew about this and this was done to make sure it didn't come out before the election it was tampering with the election. and if there is money paid he knew about this is a serious violation of the laws. what could it mean for donald trump? it could mean fines if the f.e.c. pursued the says with they often don't. ands in a highly unusual thing
8:08 pm
that would happen -- it would go to the department of justice and that they would prosecute, and that could mean jail time. but that's almost an impossibility. we have not seen that happen ever. >> sarah, laura, thank you so much. now i want to bring in mark mckinnonen a a former dwirs to george w. bush and john mccain. and mike murphy. mark, i have to ask you because this momentsing a -- did we were talking about the porn star stormy daniels. your cmo is called the circus, doesn't get more circusy than this. >> if we proposed this as a hik shunle feature in showtime they would have thrown us out of the office. it's a maddening dizzying circle of news keeps getting disclosed. this is only one of many stories today. and maybe the least important of some of the larger stories that we'll be talking about. >> it's amazing. >> yes. >> yes.
8:09 pm
what do you think of stormy daniels? ? what do you think. >> her work or -- >> what. >> you know, first i think the president should have come up with a better phoney porn name. it could have been orange olson or something more creative. this is a big distraction when you run a reality show presidency. you get into these kind of things. but frankly he has bigger problems right now than whatever horrible things he was you want to there and maybe he is going to be liable potentially for f.e.c. fines. but it's like a speeding ticket on the way to the bank robbery with some of the problems he has with bob mueller and now potentially a trade war. >> what's the biggest problem? mike, what do you think the biggest problem is? >> i thinks his big are problem is the mueller investigation process another brick falls every day into what could be a wall of legal trouble. if we don't know all the facts
8:10 pm
yet, but we know there is a very aggressive investigation by a highly competent prosecutor who is widely respected across the spectrum of law enforcement with the investigatory power of the fbi behind it. every day we seem to learn another route of inquiry that looks promising. now it's the mystery foreign funder and meetings in the seychelles, turning into a novel. this is like rust, it never sleeps. we have to see where it lands. but it's a huge distraction. the second problem is he has done the first crazy thing on economic policy, which is why gary cohen is jumping out the window at the white house. a trade war will cause a civil war in the republican party. >> we'll talk more about that but i'm interested in markeace reaction. >> given the latest u.a.e. investigation. we need a kari mathen threads board to answer this. i'm interested in talking to
8:11 pm
mike about in. because he is a smart strategist in the business. mike, what in your estimation are the two possible scenarios? what's the worst that could happen with the mueller vision? and what's the least that can happen? >> well, i want to thank you for the compliment we're old friends and great to be television with you. i think the worst that could happen is mueller goes after direct family members. you know something that could involve his daughter or son-in-law. and starts connecting financial favors to the family from overseas. and maybe even money moving into the campaign. i think that could be criminal and catastrophic for the president, in addition to the i can'tle side. the best thing that could happen is what the white house is spinning for which is the most aggressive investigation in the history of the world and it turned out there were a couple of knuckle heads in the campaign that the president never knew and got in trouble. and we've been certified clean. >> and the truth is probably
8:12 pm
somewhere in the middle of all of that. but you bring up a good point. because the family members, the kids, many people feel have sort of gotten off easy when it comes to the mueller investigation so far when it comes to being interviewed. some are saying, mike, that they may be saving the best for last. i don't know if that has anything to do with his family or kid. >> it could be. normally the investigations build toward the principal. they start with the supporting characters and work through and get a ton of information to confront the be principal targets with. but look it's not rocket science to wonder why he never released the tax return. he has been incredibly defensive about political -- excuse me his personal financial stuff. that generally doesn't happen without motive. i'm speculating here wildly. everything i know about donald trump's business history in atlantic city and new york real estate. he is a guy that doesn't want a
8:13 pm
federal x-ray. and that's what he has right now. >> and he threw a huge red flair about it when he said please don't look over there mr. prosecutor. >> let me ask you about since you are jumping in. so yes, krougs not a legal term. everybody saying no collusion, no collusion you're into the charged with collusion. of course not. it would be money laundering, conspiracy. >> i think collusion is it actually the least of his worries. >> right. >> i think it's much deeper. >> that's a talking point from the white house and from his supporters. that's the only reason. >> but they're knocking down the least his problems if that should come to ber. because there are greater problems with money laundering transactions, influence and now starting -- by the way what with he see in today's news is this is beyond the campaign, into the transition, into influencing government action itself as opposed to campaign related activity, which would be o could be much more zbloors the president was asked earlier today about what's being done to prevent russians from meddling
8:14 pm
even further in our elections. here is part of the response. take note of how switches gears in this answer. watch this. >> we are doing a deep sfd and we're coming out with i think some strong suggestions on the 18 election pl we'll do well in the '18. aflt historically those in the white house have will be of a dip. but i think we'll do well because the economy is so good and because we're protecting jobs -- our jobs are being protected finally like with what we're doing with the tariffs. but the big thing would be the tax cut and the regulations cuts. also, the judges. >> so he started russian influence on the election then he pivoted to the talking points with the -- about voting, the gop how the gop would be voting in 2018 and the 2018 election. how concerned are republicans with the president and the mid-terms. >> deeply concerned. they are hanging hats right now
8:15 pm
on the top hope that the tax cuts as well as just some kicking in with general economic news and jobs -- there is a lot of good news on that front. which could be completely handicapped by the tariff news. you know, the tariff thing is the most mind boggling thing i've seen from this president on a policy front, not that we didn't have warning. he said it during the campaign. he talked about 45% tariffs. but as a once former democrat who crossed the bridge 15, 20 yearsing a, a big part of the attraction for me was i was sick of protectionist trade policy and attracted to true trade policies a a republican. the orthodoxy that drew me to become a republican is now being completely reinvented by this president. so i think for people -- republicans like mike and myself we look around and say this is not the republican party that we were initially attracted to. >> mike, he did run on this. excuse me. cohenen a others i think in the
8:16 pm
administration were against the tariffs. a lot of people are. who does he listen to? does he tell his base, i know i ran on this but the economy is doing -- whats doing here, making the wrong decision. >> on a policy thing it's disaster ours oh. plktically it's disastrous in the longer term as well. oolts of the trump support he is tell me who have been trump critic he is in the republican party is look the tweets are crazy. just ignore them. the policy the white house puts out is great. judges, tax stuff, fighting isis. don't worry about the crazy tweets. with this trade edition, the guy writing the crazy tweets is the guy forcing the policy through the white house. none of the economic grownups were for this. 199none of the republicans or very view efew are for this. what happened, the wall of economic sanity in the white house when rob porter got tangled with the spousal abuse he committed -- he was dutyfully
8:17 pm
and successfully ejected. and cohen lost the fight and he is leaving. so trump is running amok. it's home alone. we have for the a real example of bad policy. to your question about the sound bite he looks like he left the meetings i've been to with republican poll sisters looking at the floor nothing no front of them them but a bottle of whisty and a revolver. we hope the tax cut turns it around. let's see what happens in the special election in pennsylvania. >> that's quite a picture that you painted there. listen, thank you. >> kind of a forced joke i wanted to get to. >> guys come become. i love this conversation. come back any time love to have you as often as possible. listen, i want you to be remind the the chaos continues at 160 oh pennsylvania avenue. the circus continues i should say. pu the circus on showtime returns on april 15th. how did you like that
8:18 pm
transition. >> great show. >> thanks. when we come become a source telling cnn, the president's lawyer michael cohen was provided secret information about the house intel committee testimony, another violation of rules. eric swalwell who sits on that committee joins me next. i'll take you there. take this left. if you listen real hard you can hear the whales. oop. you hear that?

8:22 pm
news ton on the russia investigation. joining me now a member of the intelligence committee, democratic congressman eric swalwell. thank you for coming on. >> thank you. >> another individual with ties to the president is cooperating with robert mueller's investigation. george nader attended secret meetings during the presidential transition between the united arab emirates and trump associates and is now cooperating with the special counsel after being questioned by the fbi back in january. what's your reaction? >> well i'm excited for our country's sake to see the fbi so doggedly pursuing the witnesses. because the it's the opposite of what we see on the house intelligence committee. but, don, this shows that the only way to get to the bottom of this is you have to do a lot of work. you have to subpoena records, travel records, bank records, communication logs. and then you can confront a witness and then you can get their cooperation. it looks like that is what is happening here. i also want to add, i'm wondering if eric prince was straight with us.
8:23 pm
you go back and read his transcript. i don't remember hearing anything about him talking about george nader when he testified to the house intelligence committee. i want to bring him back in if we could to clare it up. but also, is this another example of trump family seeking to enrich themselves with the dealing was foreign governments? it loobls it. >> the reason is because he apparently attended a meeting in the seychelles that also was attended by vladimir putin, eric prince who is betsy devoss and a adviser to president trump sfwhoo eric prince has further explaining because in his testimony to the committee he said that he met with the prince from the uae and the russian banker. that was it. if there is more to it it wouldn't surprise me, don, how many individuals haven't been straight and lied about contacts with russia or surrounding russians. but it shows that if we're not willing to subpoena the records we're not getting the truth. >> a russian close to putin.
8:24 pm
not putin. >> that's right. >> appearing along side with the swedish prime minister president trump was asked about the meddling in the 2016 election. here is part of what he says. watch this. >> well the russians had no impact on our votes whatsoever. certainly there was meddling. and probably there was marylandling from other countries and other individuals. i think you have to be really watching very closely. you don't want your system of votes to be compromised in any way. and we won't allow that to happen. we are doing a deep study and coming out with i think some strong suggestions on the '18 election. >> what is your reaction congressman when you hear the president waffle on russian interference on our election. >> no, there is probably no other country that worked to undermine our election. it was russia. it sought to help donald trump. and if that affects his ego or
8:25 pm
affects how big he think the win was. about i'm sorry. we have a dpkz to protect. the best thing he can do is cooperate with the investigation and sfrt impose the sanctions against russia to tell everyone of the intelligence chiefs to do everything they can to defend against russian interference and unite our country. because i think a lot of republican obstruction on the intelligence committee is because of behavior at the top. he has of an opportunity to unite it so we have a stronger shield into the 2018 election. >> cnn is reporting tonight an attorney for president trump's personal lawyer michael cohen was provided with secret information about house intelligence committee testimony from another committee witness. what do you -- what do you know about that? >> well, don, either you're working for america or you're working against it in this investigation. we have seen prior leaks from republicans to the "washington examiner" where they are reporting before we even learn about witnesses or evidence in
8:26 pm
our investigation. last week the republicans did not defy reports that they had leaked out mark warner's text messages. i can't say too much about this. with you, again, you should be working to protect america. we should all be doing that. and if you are working to give witnesses in this case information that hurts our investigation and our ability to protect the ballot box. >> a spokeman for the leading republican on the investigation representative michael cona way. told the daley beast this. any accusation gnat testimony was shared with another witness of their lawyer is unequivocally false. how concerned are you that someone from within the house intel committee could be leaking a key -- leaking two key -- to a key figure in the investigation? >> i hope mike a right. i hope it's false. but, don, we have already seen a willingness by the republicans on the intelligence committee to give subjects of this investigation evidence. that's what they did with the memo. when they turned that memo over
8:27 pm
to the white house, the president, the president's lawyer, they showed them evidence that existed in the case that they did not know about before. so, again, either you are working to protect america or you're making us less safe the next time we go to the ballot box. i think there is time to work together on this and put aside the parts. ship. >> thank you, congressman, i appreciate it. >> my pleasure. >> when we come a porn star sues the president. appear the president's personal lawyer kaugt up in the mueller investigation. that's in the last few hours. more on what president trump calls great energy at the white house next.

8:32 pm
sinn fein at the white house. is that because he is approaching this with the mentality of a reality television producer? or with the biggest audience -- with the biggest audience ever saying everything is great, no chaos here, in the meantime one person after the other is leaving? >> listen, don, first of all i'll concede, it's better to have less turnover. i'll admit that. the rappedty of turn joifr is troubling. and giving ammunition to critics. but here is what's more important. most americans don't care about palace intrigue. they don't. it dominates newsroom in new york. the salens of lobbyist. what most americans care about is personal prosperity and security. that's what they care about. and the president is delivering on the secure border abbetter wages, lower taxes, judges on the court. so on every measure of what he
8:33 pm
promised he is delivering. if there are some personnel shenanigans going on so be it. that doesn't matter to regular folks who elected the president. the blue collar workers in the mid-western states who have have been fourth of julien. >> i keep hearing about that the blue collar of midwesten sfats. whatever, that's fine, they should be heard and identified appear all that have. but there are people who are americans beyond this midwesten blue collar worker i hear so much about. actually people on the coasts who are americans, people down south who are americans, people up north who are americans, more than just the midwesten person, and i don't know why you guys hang your hats on that so much and talk about this myth cal person as if others aren't americans. >> of course they're all americans. >> first of all it's not mythical. this is real people. they changed the election.
8:34 pm
that's why it's important. >> pennsylvania was on the east coast aloft time i saw. >> pennsylvania is not quite on the coast. >> on the east coast what i'm saying. >> all right. wet well not quite on the coast but regardless of. >> pennsylvania is not a northeastern state. >> it's to the coastal regardless. >> east coast i'm not saying it's on the ocean you know what i'm saying. >> wherever middle class people that doesn't matter whether they live in blue state or red state process. wherever middle class people they have struggled in recent decades. by the way, i'm every bit as critical of republicans as i am of democrats. what has happened in this country is there has been a globalist crony system that has been created for the self-aggrandizement of the. >> i understand what you are saying i want i don't want to get off track because we have limited time. all i'm saying is there are other americans besides living in the. >> i'm saying middle class anywhere. >> not that there is anything wrong with that i lift lived in
8:35 pm
the midwest, st. louis, chicago. i know about the midwest. but i think it's insulting to large portion of the country when you talk about those people as the only true americans. that indeed is not so. >> i didn't say that i never said that. >> that's what you insinuating. >> no that's not. >> the president reportedly. >> that's not what i said. >> the president will miss the support of hope hicks. gary cohen is leaving and sources are saying that of all things in will cause more trauma. mcmaster leaving as well pl chief of staff john kelly even jared kushner having issues. take offer the partisan hat where does this leave the president? >> oh my god without anybody. i bet gary cohen is so happy to get out. his reputation in at that timers. i don't know who the president will recruit the next round. but can i say as the governor of a midwesten state, a lot of the midwesten states, any they absolutely care about jobs. they in michigan, a midwest rn
8:36 pm
state they care about the price of cars and the steel price going through the roof. that's impacting them. it's jobs across the board, steve. let me say about the huge exponential leaving of the white house by all of the people. what a horrible leader donald trump is. why isn't anybody talking about what leadership is? leadership is not bringing people in, making them clash, making them spin out. the fact that he can't keep a single person in the white house is it something that real people are looking at. in addition to all of the scandals. this is a sign of terrible leadership. >> but he is saying -- what he is saying, though, is the ends justify the means. the chaos is happening at the white house. >> what a horrible thing. >> it doesn't matter. but it justifies the means. the stormy daniels, it doesn't matter. >> right. i mean -- i know that's what we have been saying about the evangelicals and everything. why are they turning a blind eye to call of this horrible stuff?
8:37 pm
why is it okay? it's because he puts somebody on the supreme court that will you know, will potentially if they have a chance redefine a woman's right to privacy and take away the right to choose. that seems to be the issue that is justifying all of this terrible stuff that is causing america to be in the cell ar of global and national opinion. >> steve i have to ask you this, this is the last question -- the of the last point if you can do it quickly for time here. there is a lawsuit with this porn star stormy daniels. incredible details of the hush agreement. is this not at the very least a totally undigny fieed -- undigny fieed for the the offers the president. >> you know, look, don, i i think i take the president at his word. she she has contradicted herself many times. i don't take her at her word. i don't think any of us on team trump believed we were electing a saint for the office. >> do you take the president's lawyer at his bank statement for
8:38 pm
$130,000. >> we were eeking a businessman with an imperfect past. what he did, 10, 15, 20 years as a hollywood celebrity isn't that important to me. >> the voters didn't know this though. >> steve the voters didn't know this this just came out. >> but listen but we knew lots of accusations about salacious accusations. okay that was which will known to the american public. we can't act like the american public was hood winked. we believed he was a builder and outsider and someone going to drain the swamp which he is doing. >> let me ask you this. be you think it's okay for you and if evangelicals knew that the president -- let's just say that it is true. maybe it's not. the president possibly -- possibly or allegedly slept or had an intimate relationship with a porn star, and his
8:39 pm
personal attorney paid her off $130,000, and signed a non-disclosure agreement about it, and changed the names, it wouldn't matter to you nor any of his supporters. >> no, i'm not going to get into that. a that's a hypothetical. what happens mattering to sowers christians this is a president protecting life, liberty, protection the constitution on the court. >> but cheating on his wife -- cheating on his wife and having an affair with a porn star doesn't matter at all. >> i didn't say that at all. i said i take him at his word that he said it didn't happen process. and i also believe -- and this is important, i don't think anybody -- anybody said that donald trump as i mentioned was mother theresa. he is a man with a storied past. he lived a life. >> you're repeating yourself i
