has never won before. he has a two-shot lead heading into roy three. rory mcilroy and jordan spieth five shots back. yesterday i asked spieth how he thinks all the rain will affect play today. >> it becomes a tactical golf course when the conditions get tougher or you're presented with tough breaks like that. i think that's an advantage for me. this weekend, you know, in contention at the masters, is nothing new to me. and it -- therefore, i won't be extremely anxious, i don't think. >> reporter: spieth tees off at 2:10. tune in this afternoon for a behind-the-scenes look at the masters all-access at augusta. "bleacher report" special, 2:30 eastern this afternoon. >> thanks. >> all right. would you be willing to speak under oath to give your version of -- >> 100%.
4:01 am
>> the president has begun preparing for a possible interview with robert mueller. >> should the president ever sit down with the special counsel? >> i think it is very dangerous for the president to do so. >> pruiscott pruitt has been accomplishing the president's agenda, and that has some on the opposing political side upset. >> no one other than the president has the authority to hire and fire members of his cabinet. it's a decision that he'll make. >> this deployment has begun. >> president trump is planning to secure the border with up to 4,000 national guard soldiers. >> people here tell me that they are fleeing violence, or they're just trying to find a better life. good saturday morning. i'm dianne gallagher in for christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. good morning to you. live pictures, this is, of course, the white house. president trump waking up this weekend. >> a white house official tells cnn exclusively that the
4:02 am
president's lawyers are prepping him. in case he agrees to be in the hot seat facing robert mueller. >> the president has said several times that he wants to sit down with the special counsel's team. advisers think this could expose him to perjury charges. we have more on the story. dan, what kind of preparations are happening? >> reporter: good morning, guys. president trump is preparing, we're told according to a white house official and a source with knowledge of the deliberations, for a possible sit down with robert mueller. it's worth noting that one of the sources says that these preparations are in their infancy, and it's not even clear whether president trump will even sit down with mueller in the end. he has not agreed to formally sit down. the fact that these deliberations, preparations are happening, is a sign that inside trump's orbit deliberations about whether he should or should not sit down arey ongoin. there are trump advisers and friends who would be deeply worried about the idea of president trump sitting down with robert mueller. he's obviously a man who's made
4:03 am
his career on hyperbole. it worked for him in the business world, many say, and have said publicly that that wouldn't necessarily work when sitting down with robert mueller and could expose him to significant legal risk. the reason many have started to wonder what president trump, whether he would sit down with robert mueller is because there have been gaps in his schedule at times leading some to believe that he was preparing for a possible interview. he's not doing anything today. there's nothing on his schedule now. obviously as you note, twitter is always open. but it's rare that the president -- president trump is in the white house and is not going out to one of his golf courses or nearby property. he's actually spent 139 days according to cnn's count, at a property that bears his name or one that has -- his company owns. >> so dan, the president has said multiple times, publicly, that he wants to sit down with mueller. even talked about it under oath. he isn't saying the same thing in private i'm hearing? >> reporter: yeah. we're told there's a split between what he is saying publicly in front of reporters and what he's saying to advisers
4:04 am
behind the scenes. take a listen to what he's said before reporters when asked whether he was going to sit down with loourobert mueller. >> would you like to testify before mueller lurp, sir? >> thank you. i would like to. >> would you be willing to speak under oath to give your version of -- >> 100%. >> are you going to talk to mueller? >> i'm looking forward to it actually. >> to reach a higher standard, you would do it under snoeth. >> oh, i would -- oath? >> oh, i would do it under oath. >> reporter: we're told in private depending who he's speaking to, he equivokwats more on whether he wants to sit down with mueller. acknowledging this is a high-stakes situation that could expose him to legal risk the president is possibly not willing to undergo. >> thank you very much for the insight from washington. joining me, michael moore, former u.s. attorney for the middle district of georgia. michael, welcome back. as we heard from dan, there is
4:05 am
some occasional equivocation from the president behind the scenes about whether he wants to sit down with mueller. would you advise him to sit down with mueller? >> you know, the one thing that stuck out in his comments was that this is high stakes. that's where we're at. the problem with the president is he cannot control his mouth. he'll be in a situation where he's being interviewed by agents, fbi agents, if you tell him something that's not true, that's a crime. he likes to expand on things, sort of push the truth, give his version. if he does any of that under oath, obviously that's perjury. so he's hard to control. i think probably at this point my guess is i would tell him if he can't keep his mouth in check, that he should not talk. i'm sure he feels the heat of the midterms, and say i was available that talk. he wants to get that off the plate. >> without having the conversation voluntarily, he puts himself in jeopardy of being subpoenaed. if you're mueller, can you close an investigation into potential collusion with the trump
4:06 am
campaign, obstruction of justice, without getting him voluntarily to speak or pursuing a up? >> i think it would be hard to do it -- a subpoena? >> i think it would be hard to do it without a subpoena. you hear they're going to take the fifth and you don't bring them in if you're told to do that. the president has to deal with this politically, is it more legally protected if i take the fifth, or do i have my lawyers negotiate for me some way to appear to get my side of the story out so i can tell the public i went and told everything, and this is all a witch hunt. >> what do the preparations look like? mock drills, just going over information? in the infancy is what they report. >> i think now this -- the preparations are really more discussions about how hard are we going to pursue this with the mueller team. >> yeah. >> and give us some direction, are you serious about this, are you comfortable answering questions, what happens if you're under oath.
4:07 am
and there's a political component to it. there's the whole issue of whether or notstating president can -- whether or not a sitting president can be indicted. people have different opinions about that. my guess is that the political element and the political considerations are playing as much. a role as the legal considerations. and whether or not he can actually control what he's got to say when he's in there with the investigators. >> okay. so this week, actually just last night, a federal judge granted the motion from attorneys for the president to a delay in their required response to the lawsuit filed by stormy daniels and her attorneys. what's the significance here? they requested time because they said the judge will have to determine if it will go through court proceedings. >> it's not unusual to have somebody request additional time to respond. that's not that big a deal. it's interesting now because the president has come out and given at least a one-word response or comment about the case. when he said this no. he sort of -- he's like a
4:08 am
big-mouth bass swinging around the pond. as soon as someone throws a shiny lure, he jumps at it. >> he's been avoiding this for a while. >> that's it. he may be feeling emboldened, a little bit like he needs to change the story. i mean, realize that every time something starts coming on, we've been talking about putin and pruitt, porn stars, payoffs. every time the story gets hot, he changes it somehow. i don't think the one-word response to move us back toward the discussion is anything other than maybe it's smart on his part. now we're not spending as much time talking about the problem he's got with his epa guy. >> michael avenatti, stormy daniels' attorney, says this is a win for his client, a gift to stormy daniels. is it? >> well, it certainly -- >> at least the conversation on air force one. >> i think that's true. the problem here is that he said he didn't know about the payout. he's subjectively thinking it's discovery, depositions giving testimony under oath. there's a line for him to sign on the nondisclosure agreement.
4:09 am
he didn't know about it, why was there a line for him to sign? does anybody believe a lawyer writes a check for you and never tells you he did it? i don't think that's incrediblible to come forward with that. and it puts them into a unique situation, a question of federal regulation violation, a political contribution to have impact in the election. he certainly muddied the waters from stormy daniels' side. i'm sure they're happy to have it because it basically puts him in a posture if he comes back and says, well, i did authorize it because he's trying to keep cone out of trouble, now they've got him on tape saying i didn't know anything about it, it challenges the truth of what he has to say. >> do those few denials on air force one make it any more likely that a judge will allow stormy daniels' attorney to depose the president? >> i think ultimately it will be a decision on whether or not the judge thinks it's necessary. i don't know that that's enough to push a deposition of a sitting president into full mode
4:10 am
there. there are some other cases, we know he's subject to discovery and deposition in cases with some other ladies that he's had issues with. those seem to me probably more likely. i don't know in the stormy daniels case if it's necessarily necessary for the finding on the case and since you have cohen, you have stormy daniels talk about what went on the nondisclosure agreement if they need the president's testimony at this point. upon don't necessarily think they have to have -- don't necessarily think they have to have it. >> michael moore, always good to have you. >> thank you. all right. we're moving to another hot-button issue that's been a major focus for the president this week -- immigration. after several days of tweets and pledges to shore up the border, the president is taking action. he's single national guard troops to the region. this comes as an annual trek of migrants which trump claims is a "caravan" is trying to enter the united states. that trek of people, they're winding their way through mexico
4:11 am
nw. and cnn's laila santiago has the story. >> reporter: this is the caravan at the center of some of trump's tweets. the caravan that started on the southern part of mexico and heading north. when they started, they were 1,000 to 1,200 people. now a much smaller crowd, a total of about 500 central americans. again, making their way north. now president trump has said that this is a dangerous caravan. the volunteers here have sort of welcomed them, providing meals for many of them, the priests and catholic churches have provided shelter, and some of the shelters have also taken in some of the central americans who are heading north. again, this is an annual event. every year it starts off big and break off into smaller groups. president trump has said that the group has disbursed. while it has gotten smaller, you
4:12 am
see behind me there are hundreds. i'm going to speak to this woman. [ speaking spanish ] she's from guatemala. she says because of the delinquency and the violence, she left guatemala. she is going to stay here in mexico. she says that she's going to tijuana, and from there, from there she wants to stay, make money, and send it to guatemala to help her children that she left behind there. this is not the first time i've heard a story like this. the people tell me that they are fleeing violence from either guatemala, el salvador, or honduras. they are fleeing corrupt government or just trying to find a better life because they can't find a job in their own
4:13 am
country. now, what is the next step for them? these central americans say that they will, some of them, stay here in mexico. some of them will head to the u.s.-mexico border. from here they will head north to mexico city. from there, organizers will break off into smaller crowds. again, some of them, they say, about 200 according to organizers, will. it to the u.s.-mexico border. we'll have to wait and see how make it there and if they will be able to seek asylum. cnn, mexico. >> thanks to laila santiago for that report. we're following breaking news overnight. 14 people are dead after a bus carrying a junior league hockey team crashed in canada. the bus collided with the tractor-trailer in saskatchewan province last night. coaches and players for the humboldt broncos were on board. they were on their runway to a junior league playoff game. witnesses say it took hours to

♪ ♪ ♪ raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens ♪ ♪ bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens ♪ ♪ brown paper packages tied up with strings ♪ ♪ these are a few of my favorite things ♪ ♪ ♪ some exclusive new details this morning for you. sources telling cnn that another adviser to president trump tried to expose damaging information about hillary clinton during the president's campaign. >> joseph schmitz approached the fbi and other government agencies to review emails from the dark web that he believed were hillary clinton's missing emails from her private server.
4:19 am
schmitz was a policy, foreign policy adviser, to the campaign. he's seated here at the table with then-candidate trump in march, 2016. >> now he met with officials at the fbi, state department, and the intelligence community about a trusted source that discovered the emails. officials briefly interviewed schmitz, but the emails were never verified. additionally, a cybersecurity expert who saw the material on the dark web told cnn that they appeared to be fake. cnn tried to contact schmitz with questions, but he declined to comment. and here to discuss all of this, political reporter and co-author of "playbook," daniel lit man. and contributor and writer for "the new yorker," adam intiss. fired chief strategist steve bannon said that members of the trump campaign kept getting approached by outsiders suggesting ways to get the emails. this reporting would support the
4:20 am
testimony. this also seems to show that this campaign was just relentless in trying to get any kind of information they could from anywhere they could. >> yeah. obviously the emails were the holy grail. people who wanted to ingratiate themselves with the trump campaign and republicans more broadly were, you know, many seemed to be trying to see if they could deliver the emails. i think in this case we are dealing with something different. this isn't like what papadopoulos did, george papadopoulos, who was told about the russians having dirt. papadopoulos didn't go to the fbi. he didn't go to the intelligence community. he didn't go to the intelligence committee on the hill. he disclosed the information. schmitz in this case, he follows what you're supposed to do when you have this information. he goes and tells the state
4:21 am
department. he goes and tells the fbi, and he tells the intelligence committ committee, what a whistleblower is supposed to do. i don't think he's trying to deliver this to the campaign, i don't see the evidence of that. it seems that he was trying to alert the fbi and state department that these emails were out there, and that they should potentially come and get them. >> yeah. and no matter what the motive is, again, those are the correct steps that one is supposed to take. listen to former adviser dismissing the role in the campaignment take a listen. >> the guy was coffee boy. you might have called him a foreign policy analyst, but in fact if he was going to wear a wire, auld all we'd know is if preferred a carmel maccaiato ovr
4:22 am
regular coffee. this is beyond the scope of his volunteer duties. >> okay, we know that papadopoulos at this point was not just a coffee boy. he played a much larger role in advising. can we say the same for schmitz? he was inspector general at the pentagon under bush. same kind of role here? >> i don't think we can -- frankly, there's not a lot of clarity as to the role that he played. you know, he stayed all through the campaign until the election. what he was doing behind the scenes, i never really got a sense of what that was. >> may i make the point also that, you know, the reason he was on this advisory board with papadopoulos and keith kellogg on the nfc is because so many foreign policy experts in the republican community signed letters saying they were never
4:23 am
trumpers. the trump campaign was desperate to show they had foreign policy reporters and assessmembled the board to provide cover that front. >> at least this is somebody who comes with the credentials and background, someone who knew how to play within the government parameters. daniel, officials at the study, the inspector general, they briefly interviewed schmitz. i want to know what does this mean when it comes to the russia investigation? will mueller move to question schmitz in the near future, or is this sort of another piece of a puzzle showing how the campaign was working? >> schmitz might be pressed to be interviewed, but robert mueller is looking at different stands. it might be hard to interview someone on the prev-- periphery. this doesn't tie into russia that much. remember, trump himself said on the campaign trail, russia, if you can find the 30,000 emails,
4:24 am
go ahead. that's why there were so many people approaching the campaign, like bannon said. >> obviously the difference being that some of the stuff on the dark web, the information from foreign entities, that's not normal politics. that's not what somebody in a normal political campaign is supposed to do. >> right. this is not how this system is supposed to work when you have emails leaked on the web. but i think these were probably fake emails by people trying to look like they were big players on the dark web, basically the reddit version. i don't think they had the goods. >> thank you very much for your time. >> thank you. still ahead, the reporting is that white house aides want him out. dozens of democrats and a few republicans want him out, too. but for now, epa head scott pruitt has one big supporter, and he's the one who counts, president trump. we'll talk about that. plus, a texas congressman

welcome back. i'm dianne gallagher in for christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell.
4:30 am
good morning to you. there are several white house observers who are speculating that scott pruitt would not make it through the night. but the head of the environmental protection agency is still on the job this morning. >> yeah. this comes despite the list of controversies that he's racked up over the last week. the president met with pruitt on friday. a white house press secretary, sarah sanders, sidestepped a question about pruitt's future. >> question about the president's stance on scott pruitt keeping his post at the epa. has he been advised by anyone close to him that peruitt step down? >> no one other than the president has the authority to hire or fire. >> one of the latest controversies involves the room that pruitt rented from a lobbyist couple in washington. cnn confirmed that when the couple couldn't get him to leave, they were forced to change the locks. >> to discuss this, i'm joined by political commentator and former senior adviser to the
4:31 am
trump campaign jack kingston. and opinion columnist for "the hill" and former democratic aide brant bedowski. welcome back. jack, i want to start with something that former vice president al gore told january jones. he's going to be -- van jones. he's going to be a guest this evening. let's watch that. >> i will tell you that i'd be very surprised if 90% of the american people looking at the facts of that situation did not think that there was the appearance of outright corruption there. and donald trump ought to fire him. it won't do any good for me to say that -- if i told him to keep him on, maybe that would make him fire him. honestly, regardless of party, regardless of ideology or his policies, the american people have a right to believe there is some modicum of integrity in the way our government is operating. >> jack, is it fintime for scot
4:32 am
pruitt to go? >> i don't think so. i want to put my finger on something al gore said. he said the president isn't going to listen to him, and he's correct. what has happened, this has become political. scott pruitt is pushing back a lot of the epa overreach as it happened under barack obama. therefore, his critics are coming out of the woodwork saying this guy's got to go, and they're not attacking him on policy. they're attacking him on other things. you know, this room was $1,500 a month. that's about standard rent. >> no, it isn't about standard rent in washington. >> well -- >> do you know how much a couple of drinks would cost at the bar at the trump hotel? about the same amount it costs to stay a night in that condo. >> i have to respectfully disagree, i think that's standard rent -- >> no, you're wrong on that. can we show the building there? it's a block from capitol hill. >> listen, i slept in my office floor as a member of congress for ten years because it is very difficult to find a place.
4:33 am
i can tell you, $1,500 does not sound out of whack with me as respects to the market up there. that's why the ethics -- department of epa agreed with scott pruitt. that it was not -- there was not an impropriety there. >> jack, i -- there are people all over the district now throwing shoes and socks at the television thinking that if you know where there's a $1,500-a-night condo or room or a month, post it to your twitter account do. that right after. >> i can say this -- if there are other people who go to represent that and find it's $2,500, you've got a problem. if that rents to other people for about $1,500, that's -- >> they also aren't head of the epa. brent, your reaction to what jack says there. his point is, let the inspector general deal with this. >> you're right obviously about that. i will announce that if that condo place is still vacant, if
4:34 am
-- if they offer me that deal, they know where to find me. it's amazing. write a piece for "the hill" where i referred to trump as the swamp king and pruitt as the polluter. i think he will be gone. it probably won't be announced that he's fired. he will be announced that jeaner pastures have -- greener pastures have come before him, and he's moved on -- for the wrong reasons. pruitt embodies the level of scandal, the level of ethical problems the level of corruption in so many agencies. i could write a column of 10,000 words and cnn could do a story every day about the scandal around pruitt and others in the trump administration, it's unbelievable. the epa was created by richard millhouse nixon who proposed it and got it passed in 1970. it began. and scott pruitt makes -- he makes nixon look like an
4:35 am
environmentalist or damages the earth, and he makes nixon look like a pillar of integrity. and you never heard me ever anywhere compare nixon to integrity. scott pruitt is so bad and some of these other people are so bad, it's an outrage. he will be gone -- >> jack, let me -- hold on, jack. you know -- i'm thinking of something you just said. that pruitt's political enemies, his opponents are attacking him because of his effectiveness. is that not also the reason potentially the president is keeping him on? this didn't fly when it came to tom price right after he was unable to help members of congress pass through an obamacare overhaul, and his spending more than $1 million on commercial travel was enough to get him out the door. let's play the president's comments back on september 27th right outside of the white house about that scandal and play what he said this week on air force one about pruitt.
4:36 am
>> spent a lot of money on the charter plane. >> i was looking into it, and i will look into it. and i will telly personally, i'm not -- tell you personally, i am not happy about it. i am not happy about. it i'm going to look into it. i am not happy about, it and i let him know it. scott has done a fantastic job. i think he's a fantastic person. i just left coal and energy country. they love scott pruitt. >> now scott pruitt obviously has his own travel spending concerns. but if egregious waste of taxpayer money was a problem and a fireable offense for price, why isn't it for pruitt and the condo and the soundproof booth and the door that had to be replaced and on and on? >> victor, i think that you're right, part of the formula is the job that he's been able to do in terms of -- >> it's excusable for pruitt? >> i -- i'm saying that he -- the president said he's unhappy.
4:37 am
he's saying he's going to look into it. there might be an i.g. review of the whole thing. he will be taken to the wood shed in one form or the other. i just don't think he will be dismissed over it. i want to point out also to my friend brent, though, remember richard winsar. you know -- windsor. you know the name, richard windsor. the alias that administrator lisa jackson used to conduct business with behind the scenes. to me that was a huge scandal. i didn't hear the outrage from the environmental community on that. here was a woman in public position using an alias name, richard windsor, lisa jackson under obama. she was forced to resign once the public found out and got outraged about it. how could the obama white house not know about lisa using that name? >> let's state present day. >> wanted to point that out. >> we hear you. appreciate it. brent, let me come back to you. secretary mattis signed a memo
4:38 am
ordering up to 4,000 national guard troops to head to the border. that's going to go through the end of the fiscal year, september 30th. let's put up the tweet from the chief of the national guard bureau. always ready, always there. moving up to 500 national guard troops immediately to the southwest border. security mission, vehicles, equipment, and helicopters on the way tonight. as says you know, previous president vs. done the same thing. why is it a problem now for democrats that president trump is doing this? >> i agree with what congressman o'rourke from texas said. he has a good chance of defeating ted cruz and said correctly we don't need it. we don't want it. it's a diversion. what's happening here is that trump sees a shot on fox news about a caravan, and he plays the politics of trying to persua persuade, to be honest, the white people in his base that the hordes of hispanics coming from foreign countries are going to invade the united states. that's utter nonsense.
4:39 am
it's fear politics. i could go on about the things that trump has done that have hurt hispanics. this is just one of them. we've got better things to spend money on than a wall that i predict will never be built. and sending the national guard permission that takes them away from more important things and will do very little good. >> jack, there are mayors and -- and sheriffs along the abortbor who say they don't need this. so why is it happening? >> i don't believe that bento on, rush hour would would be su they don't need that. offended by the racial bait you threw in there. i forgive you. want to move on. this was done, as you pointed out, not just by george w. bush but by george herbert walker bush, as well, and barack obama. at the time that barack obama did it, people like gabby giffords were supportive of it. john mccain said we don't need 1,200 troops. we need 6,000.
4:40 am
bush, by the way, used 6,000 troops. what they're going to be doing is not frontline arrests, but they're going to be doing surveillance in support for the border control. i think it's -- i think it's a valuable national security tool. >> all right. critics have said of both the 2010 and 2006 deployments that they were expensive and inefficient. we'll see what this will be. it's at least approved until september 30th. thank you both. >> thank you. embattled texas republican representative blake farenthold has resigned from congress amid a month-long controversy. he's accused of using taxpayer dollars to settle a former aide's sexual harassment claims against him. the national republican congressional committee is requesting all of the nearly 85,000 -- $85,000 to be paid back that he used. farenthold announced in december that he planned to repay the money and wouldn't be seeking re-election. as of laust month, no payments have been made.

4:54 am
visit for spring break. and unfortunately they will be dealing with the same things we had yesterday. damaging winds as well as hail and isolated tornadoes. so let's talk broke the timing of this particular storm. we have two waves. the stronger wave is the wave that will make its way through first. we're talking late this morning into the afternoon. and then another wave behind it, that wave is just going to be rain. the problem is with both of those, that will add to the flooding concern. not just for where the rain falls, but also all these rivers. we have over 90 rivers potentially could reach minor flood stage over the coming days. and i'm not a good golfer by any means, but i would say that strong to severe thunderstorms, gusty winds of 20 miles per hour not exactly ideal conditions for golf, but that is what they will have today at augusta. 90% chance of storms and again keep in mind that it is also going to have very gusty winds along with it. >> that is a good guess, not a great day for golfing.
