11:01 pm
wallets. hello and welcome to our viewers joining us here in the united states and from all around the worrell. i'm rosemary church from c world headquarters in atlanta. this is "cnn newsroom." so let's start with the russia investigation and some interesting questions about the limits of u.s. presidential powers. rudy giuliani, one of donald trump's lawyers, says the president could probably pardon himself if it came to that, but he doesn't intend to. giuliani also told huff post, quote, in no case can he be subpoenaed or indicted. i don't know how you can indict while he is in office, no matter what it is. if the president shot james comey, he would be impeached the next day. impeach him and then you can do whatever you want the do to him. more now from cnn's boris sanchez. >> reporter: rudy giuliani for the most part echoed some of what we saw in those letters
11:02 pm
published by "the new york times" on saturday that were sent from the white house legal team to the s counsel in january of this year. giuliani said that he likely would havenged some it, but that he agrees with 80% of its premise, namely, the idea that president trump being the top law enforcement officer in the country could end any investigation he so choose, even one directed at him. to clarify, giuliani said he perhaps wouldn't go that far, but he said that theoretically, it is clear in the constitution that the president reserves that right. further, on the issue of pardons, giuliani made the case that in theory, the president does have the authority to pardon himself. but on both counts giuliani said that likely wouldn't go that route. >> he is not, but he probably does. he has no intention of pardoning himself. but he probably does. that's not to say he can't. that's another really interesting constitutiona margin, can the president pardon
11:03 pm
himself. i think the political ramifications of that would be tough. pardoning o is o pardoning yourself is another. >> giuliani also said he would be prepared to challenge any subpoena coming from the special counsel in court. further, he argued that the president reserves the right to challenge the special counsel probe in court legally as illegitimate. boris sanchez at the white house. >> joining me now to talk more about this is criminal defense lawyer mark geragos and cnn political analynd white house correspondent for "the new york times," michael sheer. good to have you both was. >> thank you. >> okay. so president trump's lawyer, rudy giuliani told "the huffington post" that mr. trump could shoot former fbi director james comey and still not be indicted for it. and these are the actual words he used. "in no case can he be subpoenaed or indicted. i don't know how you can indict while he is in office, no matter
11:04 pm
what it is. if he shot james comey, heould beimpeached the next day. impeach him, and then you can do whatever you want to do to him." mark geragos, to you first. what does this tell you about giuliani's understanding of presidential powers? is he right or is he wrong? >> well, there is -- i think he is engaging in a little rhetoric, because what it is an open question as to whether you can force somebody to stand criminally trial during their presidency. but i think most people would agree that if a president were indicted during office, all they would do is they could suspend the proceedings or keep the indictment sealed until after the president was out of office. that doesn't mean that they can't impeach him at the same time because impeachment is the process by which you get him out of office. so i understand what he was trying to say. i wouldn't say it was the most artful way of describing it.
11:05 pm
but that has been kind of the tour that rudy has been on for the last month and a half. >> yes, it was most certainly an unfortunate example, wast it? michael scherer, what was your reaction to what giuliani said about shooting james comey? >> well, look, i think mark is right. what giuliani was brought on to be was a public relations pit bull, not a kind of stellar legg legal mind. he is a lawyer, but the legal strategy is being done largely by other people. what rudy giuliani's mission is to sort of muddy up the waters in a public relations sense. and what we've seen from him from the time he came on the scene representing donald trump about a month ago is that he's basically done one -- made one outrageous statement after another, and this is sort of height of that the idea being to kind of whip up public opinion, not so much to lay out a sort of reasoned legal strategy. >> it certainly got our attention, didn't it? and this is what rudy giuliani
11:06 pm
said when he was trying to explain why it's better that the president doesn't testify before the special counsel on the russia investigation. let's have a listen. >> i mean, this is the reason you don't let this president testify. if, you know -- all recollection keeps changing or we're not even asked a question and somebody makes an assumption. in my case, i made an assumption. then we corrected and i got it right out as soon as it happened. i think that's what happened here. >> so mark, what is your recollection of what giuliani said there? are chaining recollections sufficient reason for not letting a president testify? >> look, this is an area i would agree with him on. anybody who practices criminal defense, anybody who does the defense of criminal cases will tell you that it's a rare case where you would let your client go in and testify. it just is too fraught with danger. the expression we always use when you're talking about this is a perjury trial.
11:07 pm
no matter what you -- your client is going to say, if the client does not say exactly what the prosecutor thinks is the truth, then they expose themselves to the perjury or obstruction or having their words manipulated because it isn't singing from the same sheet of music that the prosecutor has. so in that instance, i would agree. you would have to be hard-pressed to have somebody allow their client, let alone the president, go in and testify. i think bill clinton is exhibit a as to why you wouldn't do it. >> michael shear, do you agree? >> i'm not a lawyer that makes sense from a legal perspective. i think from a political perspective, that doesn't -- that hasn't been the way politics has been practiced in this country for a long time. we expect our political leaders to answer the questions that are put to them. there has been a real sense i think in bill clinton's
11:08 pm
willingness ultimately to testify was testimony to the fact that there h been a sense that political leaders can't dodge the public completely. they can't simply refuse to answer questions when they're serious like this. now i think donald trump has been testing norms since the beginning of his campaign much less coming into the white house. he shatters them. he looks at historical trends and historical assumptions and then does the opposite. and so, you know, mark is probably right. the lawyers are telling him and obviously giuliani is saying, we're telling him not to do this, and it's probably the safest thing from a legal perspective. and i think what we don't know is what will the public do if there were to be a real big fight between mueller and the president over coming in to testify and the president simply refused. what will the public assume that means? i don't think we know what they will think and how they will react. >> yeah. and interestingly -- go on. >> i think that's a brilliant point. because the first thing i
11:09 pm
thought of when i heardy giuliani saying this today was trump famously saying that should s somebody on fifth avenue and his base wouldn't care. so i think he operates from that. i think there is in fact rudy probably in his mind was harkening back to that, that the base wouldn't care. and i think it's a very astute point that he does break norms. and in this case, there is always a tension in these high profile cases. having lived some of these, he will tell you that there is always a political or a pr strategy, and that's a lot of times that tension with a legal strategy. in this case, the two actually may kind of be able to meld and be counterintuitive to whatever the historical perspective. >> thank you so much, mark geragos and michael shear. appreciate it. >> sure. >> thank you. well, just eight days before president trump and north korean leader kim jong-un are set to meet face the face in singapore,
11:10 pm
north korea is shaking up its military leadership. the country's top three officials are out. their replacements younger staunch kim loyalists who also is saido have experience interacting with foreign delegations. now this comes as preparations are in full swing for the june 12th summit. the first time a sitting u.s. president will meet with a north korean leader. and cnn international diplomatic editor nic robertson is in seoul, south korea. he joins us now live. good to see you, nic. let's start with the replacement of the top threeary officials by kim jong-un ahead of the june summit. what might this signal, do you think? >> so it's the defense chief. it's the head of the army and the head of the army's political bureau. these obviously very influential positions. the head of the political bureau for the korean people's army is
11:11 pm
an influential position in and of itself because it is concerned directly with the finances that are connected to the military, that the military has overview on, whic includes a lot of business interests. ver, what doe this mean at the mo? it's notar. as these newer appointees we're being told are kim loyalists and one might reasonably assume that is firming up his power base. but we've known that's been pretty strong for some time, and he's had to reshuffle in the military not so long back as well. i think if we look at, this if we really step back from it, you know, the conclusion that's perhaps the best one to draw is that kim is changing his position a little. however, that said, you know, when he decided or said that he was ready to accept a meeting with president assad of syria, you know, he was sort of
11:12 pm
sticking to his, you know, sticking to a position of a recalcitrant leader, if you will, that doesn't go along wit the rest of the world. the message when he goes to see president trump in a little over a week's time doesn't necessarily mean that he is ehind him for some , his key significant shift of character and of strategy, because he is giving other signals that would indicate otherwise. so it's very difficult to try to sort of overanalyze this without more information. it may become apparent in the coming days. but it certainly is an indication that there is change under way was left or right, not clear. >> right. and nic, president trump of course initially talked up this summit with notions of walking away with an historic deal. now he is playing down those expectations. so what's the most that can come out of this summit? and why is defense secretary mattis reminding everyone that u.s. troops will remain in south
11:13 pm
korea. is that for mr. trump's benefit orves in south korea and japan? >> it certainly does seem to a degree to calm nerves in south korea and japan, and perhaps more in japan. japan's defense minister of the conference that secretary mattis was a tending in singapore over the weekend, expressed concern that president trump was saying that he won't use the language that he cal extreme pressure, which is the language he used around the sanctions on north korea, and there was concern, particularly again coming from the japanese dfrs minister that kim jong-un hasn't put anything on the table. he hasn't made a commitment for denuclearization or ballistic missiles and therefore to get a meeting with president trump, you know, the view from japan, a staunch ally of the united states is this really raises questions about what can be achieved. that was the concern. secretary mattis was saying, look, trust is what's key to our common security south korea,
11:14 pm
japan, the united states in the region. well need to build that trust. well need to be open and transparent with each other. but that strength in our trust and our common security bond, we're not reducing our troops that our diplomats can do their job. so if you will in military terms, is providing sort of top cover for president trump, saying that they're not going to reduce the troops on the korean peninsula that would have significantly worried the japanese and secretary mattis playing the hand here that his making sure everything is on his side is clear for president trump to come in and do what is ntent with kim jong-un. rosemary? >> all right. our reporter there nic robertson bringing us up to dayton situation where it is nearly, what, 3:15 in the afternoon there in seoul. many thanks to you, nic. well, joining us from singapore, a research fellow at the s raja school of international studies. good to have you with us.
11:15 pm
>> thank you. >> as we mentioned, you're in singapore. that's where all the action takes place in just over a week. what's the most that can be achieved in this first face-to-face meeting between president trump and kim jong-un? >> well, yes, you're quite right. there is a lot of anticipation building up, and singapore being the hosts of this summit, it's a very important summit, very high stakes. but i think observers here in this country and in the region have a very low bar in terms of the expectation come out of the summit. this is an a unprecedented historical event. we have a sitting u.s. president as in donald trump. mr. kim jong-un meeting, two heads of state meeting eye to eye for the first time over this ongoing crisis, decades long crisis. and because i think -- for many of us, we think that just the two of them building rapport, striking it off and really establishing a work relationship would in and of itself be a huge
11:16 pm
success coming off the summit. never mind all the over declaratio declarations or agreements that we're expecting from it. but these two important people in the room have to get along with each other in order to negotiate the terms of denuclea. >> but is that more success for kim jong-un, because he, his father and his grandfather have been wanting to sit down with the u.s. president for so long. now they're getting that opportunity. but it doesn't appear that they're having to give very much up for that. circumstances you're quite right. and that is what concerns many of us, that the fundamental goals of kim jong-un's regime, mr. kim jong-un himself are actually quite different from the goals set out by the trump administration and all the other stakeholders involved in this critical issue. the goals for the dprk really are quite simple. it's about getting the handshake in the room with the leader of
11:17 pm
the world's sole super power and get aot of cache, legitimacy from that. mind you, mr. kim jong-un has had to work quite hard to earn his place as the leader of the dprk. it's easy to overlook that fact. it wasn't just handed to him. he's had to earn it over the last few years and not less than a decade upon coming into power in 2011. he is two steps away from this hereditary rule of mr. kim il sung. so he's had to build his place in the history of the dprk. and so shaking hands with president donald trump is going to build a lot of legitimacy, consolidate his power in the eyes of his own people, which allow him to rule over the dprk going forward for some time to come. >> but will he give anything up? and will he really venture into the realm of this concept of denuclearization, which of course means one thing for the united states and another thing for north korea? >> well, i would argue that he has to.
11:18 pm
and i think he knows. this and this is where i think we get into the sticky areas of this whole event about what jong-un, the kind of concessions that they areng to make when they meet with president donald trump. something tangible clearly has to come out from this meeting. it's not certain what this tangibility is going to be, but i think some concessions have to be made. and coming back to the point about the three top military officials being replaced by younger generals, that could be a pos sign. it's still too early to say. i agree with the correspondent earlier on. but i think more needs to be done. so i was expecting he will address directly the issue of denuclearization, what that's going to look like and the ability of that in order for any lasting deal to be in place, the dprk will clearly have to abide
11:19 pm
by this notion. >> graham ong-webb, thank you very much for sharing your analysis with us. we'll be watching closely on june 12th to see what does come out of this summit. well, a deadly volcano erupts in guatemala for the second time this year, sending thick clouds of smoke high into the sky. and we will have the latest on the destruction there. and u.s. industries are not the only ones who feel the impact of steel and aluminum tariffs. next, how consumers will be affected. we're back in a moment. from the very beginning ...

11:23 pm
get a free sample at one of central america's most active volcanos has stopped erupting, but as ash from the fuego volcano is still in the air, affecting nearby communities around the summit. at least 25 people were killed during the nearly 17-hour eruption. black smoke was sent into the sky sunday, drifting all the way to the capital, guatemala city, some 40 kilometers, or 25 miles away. nearly two million people are being act affected, and officials warn new eruptions are still possible. evacuations and rescue efforts
11:24 pm
are under way. more than 3,000 people have been forced from their homes. so let's get more now on all of this. we'll go to our meteorologist ivan cabrera. at least 25 people dead. this is just horrendous. it's not over yet for people because there is the possibility of more eruptions. >> yeah, unfortunately the threats will continue, rosemary. good to see you. unlike the kilauea volcano situation there, that has been ongoing for a month. it's ban slow moving disaster, this was a violent sudden and deadly event. what happened was the volcano essentially blew its top here. and that happened through the afternoon. and then what we call pyroclastic flow, a very dangerous mixture of essentially volcanic ash, we have lava fragments that come out of that as well and deadly gases as well. the issue the movement. it moves that 700 kilometers per hour, basically the speed of an
11:25 pm
airliner here. so there is not much time to get people out of the way. i'll show you why that was going to be very difficult anyway, because right at the foot of the volcano we hav numerous villages here. let's slide into guatemala and show you macy happening. there is the fuego volcano, which by the way there are three that are around. this is the one that blew today. look at el rodeo. that is the area primarily hit. and that pyroclastic flow came right down. and there was no time to warn people to get out of the quay. and that's w we lost 25 lives earlier today. numerous injuries and those are going to be burn injuries as a result of that flow that came down, which as far as the temperature can be up to a thousand degrees celsius here. terrible stuff, but it is a one-step event so that it's already happening. i think now the issue over the next few days will be the ash that continues to fall as a result of that. and so that's going to be problematic for folks across the area. as far as how far it went up
11:26 pm
into the atmosphere, a good 10 kilometers that is an indication of quite an explosive eruption there and the soot, just heartbreaking to see folks running around, unlike kilauea, right, full of soot. and those are the lucky ones that were able to get out of the way. but the forecast i'm concerned about a bit because if we get rain on top of that ash, we can create are called lahars which are slower moving and less deadly, but they're mud flows nevertheless, and there are still villages that would be impacted here. we're in that season in guatemala. we're getting the pop-up thunderstorms, tropical rains through the afternoon that will the case as we head through monday, tuesday and into wednesday, although this event, this is still an ongoing search and rescue here, and hopefully we'll find it and more folks down there in guatemala. >> absolutely. a terrifying situation for those people. ivan cabrera, thanks so much. we'll join you again next hour. and of course ivan mentioned there, the other erupting volcano, one that has been
11:27 pm
wreaking havoc on hawaii's big island for a month now. at last count, nine people are nowandewith no po no water, and no way out after lava flows cut off their final escape routes. scott mcclain has the latest now. >> reporter: it is a single volcanic fissure actually not far from here that is feeding a massive lava flow stretching for miles, almost all the way to the ocean. in between there are entire neighborhoods that are in danger. it is already stranded about a dozen or so people who refused to evacuate when authorities did one final sweep, warning people that their final escape route, their final highway out of there is to be get caught off. there is no power, no water, no land lines inside that isolated zone. authorities are going by helicopter. they have rescued three people already. meanwhile, at the summit of kilauea, experts have measured 500 earthquakes in just a
11:28 pm
24-hour period. that's about one earthquake every three minutes. but experts also say we shouldn't read too much into this. what we might pay attention to is the fact that there have been very few explosions over the past couple of days. that either means that kilauea is dying down,r there is a much bigger explosion brewing in the future. scott mclean, cnn, pahoa, hawaii. >> we'll take a short break here, but still to come, even president trump supporters are worried about his trade policies. >> i love what the president has done in most cases, but the tariff is basically a tax on people who use aluminum. >> how the steel and aluminum import tariffs could impact industries and u.s. consumers. we're back with that in just a moment. join t-mobile. and get netflix included for the whole family. so you can get lost in space in your own backyard... or get pumped up for your grand entrance.

11:32 pm
very warm welcome back to our viewers near the united states and all around the world you. are watching "cnn newsroom." i'm rosemary church. let's update you on the main stories we've been following. donald trump's lawyer rudy giuliani says the u.s. president does not intend to pardon himself in the russia investigation, but probably has the power to do so. giuliani also told huff post that the powers of the presidency are so vast, mr. trump could have shot former fbi director james comey in the oval office and still wouldn't be indicted. days be u.s. president donald trump and north korean leader kim jong-un are set to meet in sing north kos top three military officials have been ousted. all three appear to have been replaced by younger kim loyalists, part of an ongoing
11:33 pm
transformation of the country's political and military establishment since kim took power in 2011. israel has reed, striking militant targets in gaza on sunday. that was after the israeli litary said gaza militants fired projectiles at israel. the confrontation appeared to end an unofficial and very brief ceasefire agreed to by hamas and islamic jihad, but not confirmed by israel. finance ministers from six countries are speaking with one voice against the u.s. decision to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. the officials from the group of seven sent a rare message to president trump expressing unanimous concern and disappointment in the trade action. the u.s. insists the imports are a national security threat. >> the idea that the canadian steel that's in military
11:34 pm
vehicles in the united states, the canadian aluminum that makes your fighter jets is somehow now a threat? the idea that we are somehow a national security threat to the united states is quite frankly insulting and unacceptable. >> and mr. trudeau, i think he is overreacting. i don't want to get in the middle of that as a fine friend and ally of the united states, nobody denies that. but the point is we have to protect ourselves. >> and beijing is warning washington that all the progress that's been made in recent trade talks will be wiped fought the president follows through on his latest tariff thrt on chinese exports. the white house isn't backing down. >> they take our technology. everybody knows they steal it. but they also force the transfer of it. they evade or export controls, and they're coming over here, the chinese, state owned prooids coming over with bags full of money and buying up places like
11:35 pm
silicon valley. that's a relationship with china that structurally needs to change. we'd love to have peaceful and friendly relationship with china, but we also are standing firm on the idea and the president is the leader on this. and he has this for decades. >> how far are you willing to go? >> cnn's matt rivers joins us from beijing with more on the trade talks. so, matt, how close are china and the u.s. to a tde war right now, or is this all bluster? that's going on? >> here's what we don't know. what we don't know, rosemary, is what substantively, if anything, was agreed upon over the two days that commerce secretary wilbur ross and the u.s. delegation spent here in beijing over the weekend. we didn't hear any details from the u.s. side before they left to go back to washington, d.c. on sunday night. the only -- the only statement that was put out was from the chinese side through a state
11:36 pm
media outlet, xinhua, and it was extremely vague. what the chinese said there was substantive progress made on some issues, but they didn't go into dl on what that was. the real takeaway, i think, rosemary, from the stateme put out by xinhua would be that china isot going to hold to any economic agreements that have been agreed to between the chinese and the americans if the americans go forward with these $50 billion in tariffs. that's a huge deal because what the americans have said, what you have heard people like peter navarro arguing is that the tariffs need to go forward. the list of goods that could be potentially target on june 15. go io effect shortly after. if that goes forward, and we've had no indication from the white house that it isn't going to go forward, it's unclear what wilbur ross could have possibly accomplish had in beijing, the chinese are not going negotiate under the threat of tariffs, and the americans go forward with the tariffs, i don't really see
11:37 pm
how you can come up with any potential outcome other than the beginning of a potential trade war. >> it's got many uneasy across the globe as they watch this all play out. matt rivers joining us from beijing, where it is 2:37 in tavern. many thanks to you. well, the increased cost of steel and aluminum will end up hitting the wallets of u.s. consumers, and they there won't be any relief when they reach for a beer. ryan nobles shows us why. >> reporter: just as summer is set to kick off, one of america's biggest beer makers is warning their prices could be on the rise. the cost of a can of beer is directly tied to the price of aluminum, and one of the biggest consumer of aluminum in the world is right here in golden, colorado. the miller coors corporation. the producer of some of the most iconic beer brands in america. >> that's a really old can. >> reporter: pete coors' uncle pine new year's day the can more
11:38 pm
than 60 years ooig aago. >> it was new technology. >> today more than 65% their product is sold in these cans, many produced in the largest canned plant in the world which generates 13 million cans a day. while the overall cost of aluminum has only bumped up a small amount, an american industry sur chas called the midwest premium and added cost to the account for shipping and storing aluminum spiked to 140%. that spike is directly tied to the tariff announcement. a frustration for coors, a republican who held a fundraiser for president trump. >> and i love what the president has done in most case, but the tariff is basically a tax on people who use aluminum. >> reporter: but phillip luck, an economist at the university of colorado denver believes it is the tariffs themselves that will inevitably lead to higher beer prices. >> the main problem here again is the uncertainty generated by the tariffs. >> >> reporter: coors says half of their customers make $50,000 or less.
11:39 pm
