like this a colorado man has a lot to clean up after a curious bear got trapped in his truck the man called police after he discovered the bear. look at the video here, you sea the deputy called in to help. he was able free the bear a safe distance, while the bear walked free, that's what the guy was left with, substantial damage in his cap, which was destroyed. he believes maybe he left some gum or some food. so the point is, don't leave gum or food in your car. >>. what you are seeing and what you are reading ist no what's happening. >> i expected something like this. comey has been lying all week. he's been lying for years. the man is an honest honorable lawyer. >> did you tell your father anything about this?
>> no, it was such a nothing. there was nothing to tell. >> let's focus on what the president was aware of. nothing. he was not aware of the meeting. >> the corrosive lying and zorth and lack of telling the truth, it does have an impact. >> this meeting, if, in fact, he knew about it at the time shows that all of those statement, every time he says no collusion is a lie. >> this meeting was convened for the purposes of colluding. >> well, good morning to you. welcome to saturday. your weekend, take a nice deep breath there. i'm kristi paul. >> i'll martin savidge. president trump denies anything of his meeting in trump tower with campaign officials. >> sources tell cnn his former lawyer then candidate trump not
only knew about the meeting, he approved it. the president and his team are firing back, though. >> reporter: president donald trump has repeatedly denied knowing about a meeting his son had with russians in the heat of the 2016 campaign but his former personal lawyer michael cohen now prepared to contradict the president under oath. sources tell cnn that special counsel robert mueller knew in advance about the now infamous trump tower meeting in which donald trump jr. was expected to get dirt on the clinton campaign. cohen is privately asserting he and others were present when donald trump junior informed trump of the offer and trump gave the go ahead to have the meeting. the bomb chel contradicts what jump junior told investigators
last year. asked by the senate judiciary committee, did you inform your father about the under lying off prior to the meeting? trump junior responded, no, i did not. he said he did not know the identity of the person he called three times before and after that meeting and whose number was bought and weather that person was his father. the news always calls into question cohen's own testimony before congress and his past public statements. a source tells cnn cohen did to the tell the house intelligence last year he had knowledge about the meeting. >> there was nothing to tell. >> reporter: cohen treated so proud of donald trump junior for being so open an honest to the american people. trump pushed back on 26th to his long time personal fixer. i did not know of the meeting with my son don jr., it sounds like someone is trying to make
up stories in order to get himself into an unrelated jam. rudy guiliani denies cohen's claims and accused him of lying in an interview with chris cuomo. >> he has been lying for years. >> reporter: that is not how he clarkized cohen weeks ago on cnn's state of the union. >> i do not expect michael cohen is going to lie, i think he will tell the truth. if he does that we are home free. >> it effectively brings the issue of collusion or conspiracy right no the president's feet. >> this claim wrapping up a week that saw a stunning fallout between the president and one of his closest confidants. >> thank you so much. >> the president does not have public events, he is staying at his golf resort in med minister, new jersey. good morning to you, sarah.
>> reporter: good morning, martin. that's right, president trump is spending the week at new jersey amid the stwirl of unanswered questions surrounding that now infamous meeting at trump tower and his son and a russian lawyer, leaving the twhous yesterday, president trump refused to take questions of his former attorney michael cohen that cohen had advanced knowledge. trump and his legal team denied. they say trump is privately furious about the legal scrutiny facing him and his circle. trump is trying to fire off a series of tweets attacking democrats and making remarks yesterday at the white house about the economy because this is all coming at a backdrop for the successful trade talks and what was able to taught strong
growth in the second quarter of this year after the numbers came out on friday. russia has continued to pull focus from the president's economic message, washington was fixated yesterday on an incredibles coincidence. donald trump jr. was spotted waiting at the gate in this photo him despite the social media frenzy. a spokesperson for mueller says the two men didn't speak to each other. >> thank you very much for that. >> cnn politics reporter, cnn political analyst josh rogan and cnn legal analyst paul cowan with us here. paul also a former new york city prosecutor. thank you gentleman for being with us. we certainly appreciate it. paul i want to go to you first, so if trump u president trump did know about the trump tower
meeting in 2016, has there been a crime committed? >> it's an interesting question. you would think is president having, it's true if he knew he's publicly lied about it on previous occasions. however, we now have information from michael cohen his personal lawyer who says the president did, in fact, know about the trump tower meeting. now i think that puts the president in a difficult meeting. he was lying about it. it puts his son don, jr. in a worse decision. he testified before congress that the president knew nothing about the meeting before it took place. if that is true, it is possible that don junior has committed the crime of perjury by lying before a congressional committee under oath. so don junior has the big problem here that was created by the president, really. >> when you talk about cohen the thing is, he has no corroborating evidence of this,
the allegation that president trump knew and approved of this meeting. there are no recordings, no documentation as far as we know. but we do know that the meeting hammond. with that said,otalk to me about the importance of the intention of that meeting, whether it was known or not the intention is also in question here. >> right. we know from donald trump junior's revealed communications he expressed an interest about receiving dirt about hillary clinton from these russian nationals who had links to the russian government. we also know that this proffer turned out to be largely false the information they actually had wasn't true. it was related to their overall lobbying campaign against russia sanctions in exchange for a push to release russian reinstructions on american adoptions. so whatever you want to call. that can you call that attempted
clue, like aspiring for collusion, but it doesn't seem that an actual trade of information actually hammond. again, we know these russian nationals didn't actually have the goods some that puts us all in sort of a quagmire. right? have you all these attempts to collude, to conspire and no actual evidence that at least we know of that the exchange happened. that's damming. it's embarrassing for the president and his team, his son, his campaign chairman and everyone else. it may not add up to an actual evidence of a crime. that's the legal sort of grey area we have been in all this time some we have this political crisis for this president and his team that may not actually be a legal crisis. >> so, jeremy, i want to get a real grasp of what rudy guiliani again has said about michael
cohen once on abc on may 6th and then with chris cuomo just this week. >> the man is an honest, honorable lawyer. >> i expected something like this from comey, he's been lying all week. he has been lying for years. >> the two completely different sides of the spectrum here on con. what do you make, first of all, how how much credence anybody can put into cohen at this point? >> i think what this shows is that there are problems with the nar raters on all sides of this rudy guiliani, he is praising cohen. he will tell the truth. all is fine. we hear him this week, he is a lierk everything he says is a lie. you put on the flipside, though, don't forget, michael cohen is saying donald trump knew about this meeting. i was there when donald trump junior told him about it. go back to his testimony before the house and senate intelligence committee, which
again is a lie to congress. we know he didn't say anything about donald trump knowing. so he is also as much of an unreliable nar rater in this story as the president is. now, someone here is lying. we don't i don't think yet know who that is. but that's going to be without that, you know without a tape or some other corroborating evidence, it's going to be hard to figure out who that is. >> paul, what kinded of evidence would they have to have to prove intention or to prove that president trump did, indeed, know and approve of this meeting and how much does it matter at the end of the day? >> well, if you focus back on don junior's testimony before congress, few wanted to prove he committed perjury in saying the president didn't know about it. you would need corroborating evidence. it's called the two witness ruchl it doesn't have to be live or circumstancele evidence suggesting cohen's new testimony is, in fact, accurate about don junior. i think getting back to a
legitimate point that josh ra raises. the meeting is important not because they colluded with the russians. they got dirt on hillary clinton in the meeting. it would show an intent to cooperate with russian sources to sabotage the hillary clinton campaign. now, if there were other acts later on, this would be the intent and the other acts would fill out the collusion theory. so you can't rule this out as evidence of collusion. it could be the start of collusion the there is other evidence. >> josh, the president tweeted this yesterday, i did not know of the meeting with my son don junior. it sounds like someone is making up stories to get himself out of an unrelated jam. >> that does not sound like someone who can count on a pardon anymore. is there a risk for the are the there? there are a lot of people saying, he will pardon cohen.
cohen will not cooperate. this does thought sound like that pardon could happen. is there a risk for president trump in kind of making that known in. >> well, i would say yeah he issing a only inning the risk that already exists. he didn't make the risk. the risk started when michael cohen decided to turn on the president. it's a race to the bottom between, you know, all of these guys and they're all losing. okay. the whole idea that his most closest personal fixer and lawyer for all of these years is leaking horrendous details true or not to the press as bait to get him out from his own legal troubles. it's a disaster for the president legally and he is lashing occupant. so, yes, i think the pardon is off the table for michael cohen. he is clearly pursuing a different strategy now. i heard paul say on tv and lots of other cnn lawyers, it doesn't
seem like michael cohen's strategy is that good. the he was looking for a deal, he wouldn't be leaking to the press. it's not really the best way to gain the trust of all of these prosecutors, envelopes, they're all desperate and failing from i have 15 second left, palm said the real legal risk comes for donald trump jr. how strongly, what do you think president trump is willing to do to come down to it? >> it's a good question. we seen trump lash out more and more and more as this investigation comes closer to his inner circle. if it gets to donald trump jr. that's as close as it gets. i don't think we should see should it come to that down the road. >> always so grateful to have the three of you on with us. thank you. >> thank you. >> the car fire in northern california has already claimed two lives. now a family in northern california is calling hospitals,
calling shellers, searching for two children and their great grandmother who are missing. coming up, the challenges ahead for the firefighters that are trying to gain the upper hand. >> also a powerful figure in the catholic church is gone. coming up, the sexual abuse allegations against a prominent cash. what will you discover with a lens made by essilor? sharper vision, without limits. cardinal.
breaking news from the vatican this morning regarding the resignation of a prominent cardinal. >> pope francis accepted the resignation. he announced last month he was removed among allegations of sexual abuse. why these are so significant. >> well, what we know is that recently there have been mounting accusations that the retired cardinal formerly the
archbishop of newark, new jersey and washington, d.c. in washington, he became probably the premiere broker between america and the nation's political establishment. he played an incredible important role in the late years in the john paul ii tape unseeding pope benedict xxviing and he was instrumental in getting pope francis elected in 2013. the accusations is that he is guilty of a variety of acts, sexual misconduct and abuse including in at least one case with a minor. of course, pope francis has pushed himself to a strong policy on sexual abuse. today the vatican announced that i have accepted his resignation from the college of cardinals. as of today he is no longer a cardinal and the pope has
suspended him, which moons theas not able to act as a priest. he cannot celebrate mass. he cannot do confirmations. so on. while a church investigation against him is unfolding. so what we have is fairly dramatic and rapid papal action against the highest rung of the catholic power structure. this kind of thing is really unprecedented since the early 20th century. >> we should point out he is innocent. the 88-year-old cardinal is one of the highest ranking american leaders to be removed because of sex abuse charges. >> all right. there was a number that everybody was buzzing ability. this 4 ontario 1% really strong economic growth number for the u.s. the strongest in four
years, in fact, it fulfills one of the president's big campaign promises. >> the question is what is it telling us about u.s. economy and where do we go from here? >> mark, kristi, the economic growth, there are details, top line, it grew, 4.1%. that is the strongest increase in 2016. president trump took no time holding a press conference to tout the numbers. this is only one report. his predecessors hit high remar remarks. the president said on friday
growth is sustainable and the he's right and strong growth remains, it can mark a high point. right now, economists are predicting a slower growth. in part because of one time factors in the second quarter, like a boom in exports, which surged %. some of that driven by orderers for soybeans. business investment was also a bright spot. many executives i talked to were feeling good, because of reduced tax cuts and concerns over trade and geopolitics could threaten that optimism. consumer spending and government spending increased as well, bottom line, these numbers are ro bust and will be a talking point tore republicans headed in mid-terms. it's not guaranteed the year will be strong. especially with the ongoing trade negotiations.
>> thank you. >> a family in northern california this morning, they're calling hospitals, they're calling shellers, because they're svenlg for two children and their great grandmother who had been missing the challenges ahead for the fear fighters working to gain an upper hand on this fire in california.

welcome to saturday. it's just about 28 minutes past the hour. i'm krischristi paul. >> firefighters are battling a car fire in northern california. >> it has destroyed hundreds of homes and businesses. there are two firefighters who have died trying to stop the flames. this morning it's 5% contained. it's in that area and i can't help but look at what's behind you, what is left behind you, palm, for this family. >> yes, and it's heart breaking and let me just show you a little of thisle it tells the story the corona family lived here almost 30 years. we were speaking with chris
corona, he and his wife. they were reflecting on the times he has here. to give you a sense of what it's like to return to a house like this, extremely thrilled, relieved his parents mad it out, evacuated. still you look at what's left of the laundry room, for example, you can help but have your heart go out to a homeowner and someone who lived here. let's listen. >> it's unbelievable. you know, my parent bought this house when they moved up from san jose when i was born. then everyone else that put so much work into this house. i can't believe it's gone. you tow. all those memories, you know, childhood memories. you know, all the stuff that parents say that, you know you build it for your mom. i'm glad we got, my mom got all
the valuable stuff she wanted out. >> also, something else found in all this, chris pointed out that there was one green spot left of this entire piece of property. that was a bush and inside it they found the family cat missing and they were euphoric over that. burning down this house tells the larger tale. we have several major wildfires in california right now. in the over arching picture. some 89 large fires, most of them burning in the west. more than 900,000 acres. this is strapping resources, because you can't put all the crews, of course, this one or two places. firefighters are really up against it with this so far menacing fire season. >> thank you so much. a great point to make of how thin the resources are, for those people out there.
as we said, two firefight verse already died, meteorologist alisyn chinchar is here. weather plays a role to some degree? >> we were helping, there was some good indication for the firefighters out there. >> martin, i wish i had good news for you, the forecast maintains that hot dry conditions for not just, but for much of the west. that's the key here, california is thought the only state dealing. 13 to be compact are dealing with large fires. nearly 90 of them. this is just the large fires. this does not include the smaller fires spread out throughout these estates. car fires, 5% contained, ferguson fear 29% contained. those numbers are important the containment numbers you want as close to if not at 100%. unfortunately, we haven't seen
much movement in the past few days. again, because you have those hot and dry conditions. what you are looking at. you are actually seeing those pyrocumulus clouds form and take off. it's a fire cloud as it's often called is a cloud performed because of that fire, sometimes even volcanos can produce the same thing the key this inc. to note here is that the forecast is allowing these fires they have in the mast and will continue in the future to allow them the perfect conditions to spread. we have already have low humidities. strong winds and localized spots. again those temperatures will remain in triple digits for at least the next three-to-five days. >> allison, thank you so much. we will tell you russia is hosting international war games, dozens of countries, including china, is showing off the military might. >> the president met to discuss
cyber security. yet there isn't a concrete plan to combat the russian threat. more on that add. >> please don't, i'm saving those for later. at least you don't have to worry about renters insurance. just go to geico.com. geico helps with renters insurance? good to know. been doing it for years. that's really good to know. i'll check 'em out. get to know geico. and see how easy homeowners and renters insurance can be. three are fha, one is va.e so what can you do? she's saying a whole lotta people want to buy this house. but you got this! rocket mortgage by quicken loans makes the complex simple. understand the details and get approved in as few as eight minutes. by america's largest mortgage lender.

those conditions might be? >> reporter: well, frankly, not really. these would be i think the sorts of conditions that international diplomacy would expect. i think the russian would like to see progress on a level that they say were raised by vladimir putin and donald trump during that two hour secret meeting this helsinki some they would want to see official progress. we've seen hints on talks about syria, arms reduction, so that if there is a summit down the line, possibly after the mueller investigation has been concluded, there would be something substantive to talk about. i think, frankly, even from the russian perspective, the bromance between the two presidents is beginning to look a little awkward and from the russian perspective, they actually want to move it to substantive rules as a result of what this very warm relation would ipeer to be. >> sam, i want to ask you, there
is more, let's go onto the war games, what is exactly going on here? >> reporter: well, this is a kind of annual arms bizarre sedation of international military prowess, a bit like a kind of arms fair but on the hoof, there is even i think attaching biathlon, tank racing around the course the chinese will be bringing their latest aerospace investments, some of the planes they'd like to be selling to the sorts of what would have been in the olden days the eastern bloc countries, really a competition tore buyers between russia and china, principlely, and an opportunity to remind the world that russia is expanding its military capably capability. the russians are demonstrating
new technology way ahead of nato and advancing the idea that they should, indeed, be having the sums with u.s. presidents and others precisely to talk about about arms reduction. >> that plays in this, into that. >> sam kiley, i always learn something from you, thank you. the president held his first meeting focused solely on foreign interference, it discussed ways to help state and local elections officials as well. >> it didn't offer any plans to counter the russian plant that has interfered with the congressional campaigns. >> reporter: facing growing criticism, he hasn't focused enough on the election cyber security threat from russia, the president met with his national security team in the white house
situation room to discuss election interference, so far, vague on the details. >> rest assured, there are elections or to expose any external, by anybody, external efforts to influence the american public, it shows false news, that sort of thing. >> reporter: it comes as missouri's senator claire mccaskill accuses russian operatives of hacking into her office last year. saying in a statement, while this attack is not successful. it is outrageous if they will think they can get away wit. i said it before and again, putin is a thug and a bully. mccaskill is one run running for re-election this year. people have been targeted targeting democrats in 2016. >> they were people because of their positions might have been
interesting targets from an espionage standpoint as well as an election disruption standpoint. >> reporter: the hackers used sfauld phishing attacks. they are on high alert for similar pages they say they take down when discovered. it's the campaign rather than the voting systems among the most vulnerable targets. >> i think the fact is the campaign staffer will neff get to the level of these adversaries and staring them down. we're talking about the most sophisticated intelligence the russian intelligence, the iranians. >> reporter: the white house is coming under fire for not thwarting cyber threats. >> i think it's an aembarrassmet and the attention and focus on it we need. >> reporter: in may the national security council was eliminated.
national top officials are comparing the total state of danger to the months before the 9-11 attacks. >> i'm here to say the warning lights are here again. today the digital infrastructure u structure that serves this country is literally under attack. >> reporter: they oversee the country's defense on the voting structure. on offense, it's less clear with the nsa, fbi and military taking roles. >> we need more connective tissue, between people doing law enforcement and people charged with protecting our different assets in the digital realm. >> and last night senator mccaskill talked to our affiliate about the attempted hacking. >> we discovered because microsoft contacted the senate and the senate personnel let us know. so we have been aware of
thissest for months. >> is everybody in your office taking passwords at this point? >> we have any many steps. i have said many times putin is a thug and a bully andb who does not allow the people of russia to have freedom. >> that missouri senate race is considered the tossup. mccaskill is seeking re-election in a state that went for president trump in 2016. 55 box remains, u.s. service members handed of by north korea. but this peace offering may come with strings attached. and look at this, a bear gets stuck inside a pick-up truck and this is what he left.
