attorney general jeff sessions firing mccabe. we have the attorney general being pressured by the president of the united states to get rid of this person. >> donald trump for a guy who made his career on the phrase, you're fired, doesn't like to be that person who says, you're fired. stormy daniels is really outmaneuvering them. >> they want to hide the facts from the american people. >> cohn thinks he'll get a friendlier hearing in the federal courts. >> donald trump, if you have nothing to hide, why are your lawyers fighting so hard? >> fiu pedestrian bridge and
some cracking that has been observed. >> an engineer for the company that designed the pedestrian bridge that collapsed at florida international university was aware at least two days before that collapse of cracks. >> our primary focus is to remove all the cars and all of the victims in a dignified manner. good morng, everyone. so grateful to have you here with us. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. >> we are hearing from andrew mccabe who was, indeed, fired late last night less than 48 hours before he could retire with full benefits. >> president trump is cheering the move with a great day for democracy, but mccabe who worked that agency for more than two decades calls this an attack on the fbi and on his credibility. also t is the president versus a porn star in court. president trump's personal
lawyer claims stormy daniels the adult film actress violated her nondisclosure agreement and could owe now $20 million. >> as president trump starts assembling his team for 2020 run, the data firm used by his campaign has been kicked off facebook for misusing information. we're following all the details this morning. let's start with cnn's abby philip live in washington. andrew mccabe former fbi director was fired less than 48 hours before he could retire with full benefits. >> that's right, victor. this decision came at virtually the last possible moment for the attorney general jeff sessions to make it. mccabe was set to retire in just a couple of days when he turned 50 after about 21 years with the fbi. and he was fired in part because of an ongoing investigation into his conduct as it relates to some investigation s the fbi ha been conducting into hillary clinton and the clinton
foundation. that investigation had been referred to an office called the office of personnel responsibility who had reportedly recommended that mccabe be fired. now, we haven't actually seen that report, but cnn has reported this week that that report was scathing and criticized mccabe's actions. sessions then decided to go forward with this action. what is really at stake here is the question of whether he was being pressured by president trump to fire mccabe over a separate issue. over the question of whether mccabe could validate the robert mueller probe and some claims that the former fbi director james comey had made about his conversations with donald trump. trump has been criticizing mccabe on social media for weeks now. he specifically mentioned mccabe's intent to retire in a couple of months and criticized that claiming that mccabe was receive his pension.etly and - and last night, after the news
that sessions had actually moved forward with the firing, the president celebrated it. and he seemed to gloat over it. he said in this tweet that i'm going to pull up here, he said in this tweet that mccabe's firing was a great day for americans and a great day for the fbi. he said the sanctimonious james comey was a boss who made mccabe look like a choir boy. he knew about the lives and corruption going on at the highest levels of the fbi. mccabe is saying in his own right that he was being targeted by the president. that his comments about the ongoing mueller investigation were the real reason why he was targeted for investigation and then subsequently fired. there's a question now about whether mccabe is going to pursue some kind of legal recourse to receive his pension. and in that process use the president's own statements, his comments on social media, the constant pressure on jeff
sessions to justify his claim that he was being unfairly targeted. on this issue, there seem to be a claim is being made on both sides and i will say that when this inspector general report actually comes out, we will know more about what mccabe was actually accused of doing. but for now, it seems that the trump administration has moved forward to fire mccabe and remove his pension at a moment when at the very last possible moment he stands to lose, you know, perhaps over a million dollars in retirement funds as a result of this decision made by jeff sessions last night, victor and christi. >> abby philips for us there in washington. thank you. andrew mccabe released an emotional statement blasting the trump administration. for the past year and a half, my family and i have been the targets of an unrelenting assault on our reputation and my service to this country. articles, too numerous to count, have leveled every sort of false, defamatory and degrading
allegation against us. the president's tweets have amplified and exs baited it all. he called for my firing and called for me to be stripped of my pension after more than 20 years of service and all along we have said nothing. never wanting to distract for the mission of the fbi. this attack on my credibility is one part of the larger effort, not just to slander me personally, but to taint the fbi, law enforcement and int intelligence professionals more generally. it is part of this administration's ongoing war on the fbi and the efforts of the special counsel investigation which continue to this day. their persistence in this campaign only highlights the importance of the special counsel's work. cnn political analyst and congressional reporter for politico with me now. good morning, rachel. i see you got the green memo, as well. obviously. >> color of the season. >> yeah. 'tis the season in another way here. i wanted to ask you, first and
foremost, the point is nobody knows what specifically is in this report that was filed by the office of inspector general with the department of justice's office. with that said, can anybody make a true assessment of where it goes from here? >> no, we definitely have to make -- we have to first read the report and see exactly why he was let go. obviously, mccabe, he spoke to my colleague a couple weeks ago sort of anticipating that this was coming. he said that he walked in the door every single day for the past year expecting that he might actually be let go and might be fired and he said this is because the president has been trying to attack him. he said that this is all a campaign to discredit him as a potential witness to obstruction of justice case. he, obviously, talked to james comey about any interactions he had with the president before the president fired james comey because he didn't like the russia investigation. now, it is interesting, though, that the reason he's being let
go is not because of republican criticism of him or because the president has been, you know, basically tweeting at him and harassing him for the past couple months, but because career officials at the fbi because of this investigation that we haven't actually seen the results of determined that he made some sort of wrongful disclosure to the media and had not been forthcoming several times under oath. so, it wasn't republicans necessarily that led to this ousting. we don't know all the details, as you mentioned, but, clearly, the fbi felt it needed to move on this. >> i want to bring in philip bump, is he with us? there he is, national correspondent for "washington post" we got your shot up here. grateful to have you with us. want to listen here to josh campbell law enforcement analyst for cnn. here's what he said about all of this last night as it was happening. >> the focus here is, was andrew mccabe untruthful in answering
questions to the inspector general? at least the fbi has looked at that and said, yeah, there are some issues here. i'm not happy about any of this, but the one thing i look forward to is finally being able to hear from andy himself. he is a great man and true public servant. this issue should not define his service. >> even former fbi director, tom fuentes told us last hour that, listen, if you lie to the fbi, if you lied in any capacity as an fbi official, you are going to be fired. that's just what he knows to be true. with that said, is there any recourse here? >> yeah, i think -- >> for mccabe? >> well it sort of remains to be seen. he has already started a public pressure campaign. i doubt that he is going to be able to get his job back to maybe try to get some of his pension. it's not really clear. i think the point that was just raised is an important one.
we don't know what the inspector general's report says at this point. there are rheumers and we heard rumors for weeks in which this might impugn mccabe. but the larger question is this is the second time that we've seen someone from the fbi fired after a report from the fbi that, you know, obviously, referring to james comey. the last time this happened, there certainly was some question about the way in which it occurred. the fact that president trump has been so direct and so forward in criticizing andrew mccabe, clearly has been putting pressure on jeff sessions for a long time. the fact that this happened so shortly before this benchmark of when mccabe was going to be eligible for his pension, as noted by the president in december, there's a lot of questions about how this came about when it came about that i think clouds the issue of what it is that mccabe may have done. which will be answered once we see this inspector general's report which i think the sooner we can see that, the better for the president. >> you know, something else tom fuentes said last hour. he thinks one of president
trump's perhaps bigger mistakes in all of this is the criticism he has continually given to the fbi over the last 14 months and before. for example, in december of 2017, he said the fbi its reputation is in tatters. it's the worst in history. january 5th, only collusion is with hillary clinton and the fbi and russia. february 2017, the fbi is totally unable to stop the national security leakers. he has been on the fbi, even in his tweet last night, he said lies and corruption going on at the highest levels of the fbi. even though he did say this was a great day for the hard working men and women of the fbi. a great day for democracy, he said last night. with all of that in context, how much has what president said about the fbi in the past affecting the way this is viewed now, rachel? >> it is completely tainted and colored how the american voters, american viewers are going to be watching this. right.
i mean, how can they look at this, this guy, this top guy at the fbi who had been attacked by the president, attacked by republicans. being let go. somebody who could be a potential witness in mueller's investigation in obstruction of justice or apparent, alleged obstruction of justice if it was going to, if he was going to bring a case on that. how could they not think that the president's actions and the president's desires has any sort of influence on this? how would they not question this? i think that's why a lot of republicans have asked the president not to attack the fbi. a lot of traditional republicans. gop leaders on capitol hill. they do not want -- they are very much agains the sort of tension and the president going after the fbi in this sort of regard. so, yes, it absolutely colors everything in this. >> philip, something else that might color it. a tweet from the president in july of 2017. the problem is the acting head of the fbi and the person in charge of the hillary investigation andrew mccabe got $700,000 from especially
democrats for his wife. his wife was running for office. what does -- how does that play into all of this? >> well, i think the way that plays into all of this this absolutely has nuthing to do with the matter at hand. seized upon the fact in 2015 she lost the race well before andrew mccabe became deputy director of the fbi and the money didn't come from clinton t came from the governor of virginia who gave to a lot of candidates. this sets the scene. donald trump attacked mccabe almost always under pretext which is inaccurate or completely false as it is in that case. that's the problem. the problem is donald trump wanted to see andrew mccabe go. he made that very explicitly obvious in public statements. now andrew mccabe is gone at the last possible moment that he could have been fired where he would have this punishment of not being able to receive his pension. it's impossible to extricate
from that donald trump's pressure on jeff sessions, too. you were just outlining the pressure he put on the fbi, but also put a lot of pressure on jeff sessions. >> does this give sessions a little more, a little more gu gumption, i guess, maybe, with donald trump now w the president? >> yeah, i think that this -- donald trump will look at what jeff sessions did approvingly, yes. if donald trump did not have a direct hand in saying, you have to make sure this guy goes. we'll wait and see. so glad you're both with us. thank you. the president's attorney claims that stormy daniels violated a nondisclosure agreement and could now owe up to $20 million for what she's already said about an alleged affair with the president and an agreement not to talk about it. also, much of the recent white house turmoil could be traced back to the russia investigation. how is vladimir putin reacting to everything we've been seeing.

excess of $20 million a private u.s. citizen who has merely tried to tell her version of the facts. he and his attorney, mr. cohn and now others are seeking to gag and silence my client and keep the information from the american people. >> michael avenatti went on to say in one conversation that the porn star was physically threatened to stay silent about her alleged affair with the president. >> reporter: the newest allegations from stormy daniels' attorney goes beyond the mutual financial agreement between the porn star and the president's lawyer to pay for her silence veering into allegations of physical threats and coercion to shut her up during a series of interviews. >> the fact is that my client was physically threatened to stay silent about what she knew about donald trump. >> if she felt physically threatened, did she go to the police?
>> well, i didn't say that she felt physically threatened. what i said she was physically threatened and she was. >> did she go to the police? >> i'm not going to comment on whether she went to the police or not. >> the white house is not confirming or denying the allegations of physical threats. >> obviously, we take the safety and security of any person seriously. >> reporter: saying only that it has no knowledge of daniels' situation. but avenatti is suggesting that the white house should note. >> anything in the litany of accusations, you would call them facts, that surround this case that happened while donald trump was president? >> yes. >> reporter: we asked, but avenatti would not provide any evidence to back up his assertions about physical threats. he has become ubiquitous on cable news playing cat and mouse with reporters, dripping out new details of daniels' story of the alleged sexual affair with
donald trump in 2006 and the cover up that he says followed in 2016. just days before the presidential election. >> thank you, thank you very much. >> reporter: what he has not done is tell her entire story. pushing ahead to an interview with "60 minutes" that will reportedly air march 25th. >> i think that when people tune in to this interview they're going to learn the details, the circumstances under which he signed the original agreement as well as what happened therefore related to the coercive tactics to shut my client up. >> we did reach out to michael cohn, president trump's personal attorney for comment, he did not respond. as for mr. avenatti, he said six more women came forward with similar stories. he said two of those women have nondisclosure agreements. he said all of the women still need to be vetted and did not give any further details about them.
sara sidner, cnn, los angeles. let's get to defense attorney joey jackson. good morning to you. there is a lot to get to. starting with these two motions that have been filed. one of them to move this case to federal court. explain the distinction there and why the president's attorneys, the attorneys for this llc, would want this in federal court. >> good morning, victor. so, what happens is there is a process and the process provides for what is called removal. whenever a case is filed in state court, a defendant in the case, in this case, the president. well, or not the president, depending upon whether he knows about the agreement or doesn't know the agreement but yet people are filing on his behalf. a whole other story. remove it to federal court. what is the basis for that? there is a number of basises. we know now the president is fighting back. after all this mr. avenatti going on the media and everything, it's his turn.
the second basis is, listen, the court's permit, if there is something called diversity jurisdiction. that means one party to the action lives in one state and another party lives in another state, you could avail yourself to the federal court. a long time the founding father said, hey, we don't want anyone to have homefield advantage. that's very important. we'll explain. if two parties are from different states you can go to federal court if the amount of the lawsuit exceeds $75,000. to the extent that we know that this could be worth millions in breaches, this can what the president is doing. now, understand, very important thing here is that, you know, federal court is the president's turf and i would suggest to you that the state is her turf. mr. trump is not very popular in california, of course, we know that. state judges are not controlled by the executive branch. we know that. the federal jurisdiction is something that the president, you know, may very well control. we know that.
and, so, it's just a more favorable forum for the case to be heard than relying upon a state court system that the president is not -- they're not answering to the president. these are elected judges and it's certainly something that he wants to have some measure of control over the litigation. i think from a legal perspes perspective, it's a smart move to get the case in federal court. >> the reason that the president's attorneys have gotten involved with this because it seems as if that the accusation of these 20 violations of the nondisclosure agreement and the attempt to move this to federal court. those could have been accomplished with simply sticking with the legal representation of the llc. why then would the president who the white house has tried to isolate from this case get involved? >> well, that's a great point. and it depends upon, i mean, you know, who knows if the president is involved.
will we get a tweet from him saying i have no idea what's happening in this case. these are lawyers that are dealing with the case. but, certainly, if this matter is concerning the president, that is undeniable. issues to who had the affair. it involved the president. issues as to what physical threats were made. right? we don't know that involves the president, but we know certainly someone is protecting the president and there comes a point in time that the president or his people now have to take control of this litigation, particularly, victor, when there is a "60 minutes" interview looming. some time in the next, what, the 25th, a couple sundays from now in which she'll tell all. so y think this is their part, their time to get out ahead of it and understand something very important. they're not looking the president's people to have this litigated in a public proceeding. the whole reason they're taking it to federal court is so they can enforce an arbitration agreement, which doesn't allow for a public fight, but allows a
private arbitrator outside the glare of the spotlight in a private room to otherwise settle this case. so, they want this case in arbitration. to hush it away from the public and keep if out of the public view. >> this is certainly one of the few topics that is getting so much attention that the president has not tweeted about or has not spoken about. we'll see if he keeps that up. it is saturday morning, we typically hear from the president via twitter at this hour. joey jackson, thanks so much for being with us. >> thank you, victor. all right, so, amidst all of this happening, remember, the russia investigation is ongoing, as well. and that is ongoing as russian president vladimir putin is preparing to cruise to an easy election victory there in russia. some people are asking, is it all part of his plan? ♪ [upbeat music]

candor under oath. the attorney general came to that conclusion after allegations of misconduct by mccabe. >> president trump weighed in on the decision. this is part of his statement via twitter. andrew mccabe fired. a great day for the hard working men and women of the fbi. a great day for democracy. >> mccabe was set to retire at midnight tomorrow on his 50th birthday after more than 20 years of working in law enforcement. since he was fired before that time, mccabe will take a hit on his early pension benefits. the kremlin is expelling 23 british diplomats from russia giving them a week to leave the country. i know that probably sounds familiar because they are responding to the uk expelling 23 russian diplomats and giving them a week to leave. >> this is because of the nerve agent attack on british soil earlier this month, but the russians are taking this a step further. closing both the uk-controlled consulate and a cultural center. joining us now, philip bump,
correspondent for "washington post" and liz wall, russia today anchor. good morning to both of you. and let me start with you, philip, i mean, there was this principle of parity that the russians replied to their response to the u.s. sanctions related to meddling in the election. now when it relates to the uk, they're adding on top closing these british facilities. how far can this back and forth go between rusha and tsia and t related to this nerve agent attack? >> i think it will be interesting to see what is the next step from the british side. this is an incident that the british are treating justifiably very seriously. unleashed within the united kingdom, apparently to try and kill this former russian spy. this is a significant incident. it's an incident that the united states joined with britain earlier this week to put out a statement condemning the russians.
so, this is something that the british are taking very seriously. and the russian response, as is fairly typical for the russians, we didn't have anything to do with this and the next move is really on the british government to see how they respond to what the russians have done. but, really, to see how they move forward the investigation into what happened with this attack. >> so, liz, i want to read you to you just quick excerpt from the response we're getting from the uk that came down just in the last hour to russia's expelling diplomats. they say russia's response doesn't change the facts of the matter. the attempted assassination of two people on british soil to which there is no alternative conclusion other than the russian state was culpable. how does -- how does the uk move forward with this when at the end of the day they're right. it doesn't change anything. they're still dealing with a situation where there is a nerve agent and they still feel that
there is a danger in their country. >> yeah, it's a very serious situation the use of a nerve agent. this hasn't been unleashed since world war ii and it wasn't just the two victims, the former double agent and his daughter. but, responders that were impacted by the attack. so, some people say it was a terrorist attack on sovereign soil. so, the response that we're getting from russia is, "a," it's not us. we didn't do it. what you're hearing in russian media is that it's a provocation from the west and it's this kind of common narrative that you're hearing from russia when there's overwhelming evidence that they had, that they're accused of something. they typically deny it. when it comes to ukraine, they say, no, it wasn't us. military adventures in syria, for example. the chemical attacks, the intervention and our u.s. elections. that's the common response from russia from putin is that they
didn't do it. despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. so, now the uk has taken actions. allies have also joined in and condemning it. some say that they haven't gone far enough. that there needs to be further actions to possibly sanction that store their money in the uk. so, whether there's further actions to be taken, will be interesting to see. >> let me stay with you for this next question. a lot of the chaos that we're seeing in this administration in the white house specifically and some ways as it relates to the firings, at least, have to do with the russia investigation. the russia probes in congress and the special counsel. this attempt to meddle has exceeded probably beyond putin's expectations. how is this chaos in the white house playing in russian media? >> well, it is playing in a way
that i think would be in line with what putin's goal was in the beginning. when he had sought to influence the elections eventually and reaffirm by our 17 intelligence agencies that russia had interfered in our election with the direction, with the orders from the highest levels in the russian government from vladimir putin to meddle in our elections through disinformation through cyberattacks. with the stated goal of undermining our system and this chaos. if they're looking at what is going on politically and how this is all playing out, it's absolute and other chaos. so, i think in a lot of ways, putin is watching and saying mission accomplished. >> and, philip, when it comes to what she was talking about earlier, what you were talking about earlier. let's say the uk is expelling these russian diplomats. what if they went a step further and they expelled, say, some of
the citizen, russian citizens that are living there that have a lot of money. that bring a lot of money into their country from russia that may be there for another reason. i mean, is there anything further they really could do and would maybe focusing on some russian millionaires that may be there? would that make a difference to president putin? >> i don't know, that's hard to say. that's a pretty extreme step to try to focus on private citizens. one of the things the united states and the united kingdom pride themselves on free societies. if you have the money to buy a house in london, you have the money to buy a house in london. an extraordinary step to crack down on them as a result of this. again, this nerve agent, how did it get on to british soil? how was it used as an attack. that is the question that needs to be answered. once they answer that question, the people who are culpable in this attack and then take the extra actions. but, i mean, look -- >> what if they don't find out?
>> then, i'm not sure what they can do. but this is the point. the u.s. and uk are not friends with russia. it's not as though there are a whole lot of really strong binds that can be severed here. this is already a tense situation going into this. so, it's not really clear how much more the united kingdom can do. certainly there are steps that can be taken, but they have to move through their own process when they get there. >> philip bump, liz wahl, thank you both. let's talk now about what's happening in florida because there was this missed call and now there are some important new questions. an engineer left a voicemail about cracks in this pedestrian bridge before it collapsed, but no one heard it until days later.lv but their nutritional needs remain instinctual. that's why there's purina one true instinct. real meat #1. a different breed of natural nutrition. purina one true instinct. now, try new purina one true instinct treats.
