will be answered and whether there will be any effort whatsoever by the administration to assert executive privilege. one other aspect, too, wolf, (danny)'s voice) of course you don'te because you didn't!? from this call, there's been your job isn't doing hard work... questions about why bob mueller did not make the decision about ...it's making them do hard work... whether to charge the president ...and getting paid for it. with obstruction of justice, (vo) snap and sort your expenses to save over $4,600 at tax time. instead kicking it to the top quickbooks. backing you. two appointees to make that decision, rod rosenstein and bill barr. i asked whether nadler pressed barr about this very question, why mueller didn't charge the president with objestruction. a source says he did not answer that question. one of the major unanswered questions still remaining about this four-page summary and why the special counsel did not move forward on that obstruction question. >> important information, manu. meanwhile, republicans on the house intelligence committee are echoing the president's call for chairman adam schiff to resign. he is standing firm, making for a dramatic, almost unprecedented exchange today.
we heard during a hearing of the intelligence committee. tell us about that. >> a lot of fire works at the house intelligence committee hearing and a committee that's been ripe with partisan conflict, stemming from the last congress. today after republicans demanded schiff resign from his chairmanship and after the president called schiff a disgrace because of his claims of collusion between the trump campaign and russia, in the aftermath of bill barr's letter saying that the mueller report did not establish that members of the trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the russian government, adam schiff made it clear he was not going to take the republican punches lying down. >> your willingness to continue to promote a demons trchlt ably false narrative is disturbing. having abused your position to if you're a veteran paying or more a month in rent, newday's operation home can help you knowingly promote false information. buy a home for what you're paying in rent. the integrity of this committee and you don't need a down payment and undermine the faith in this or one dollar out of pocket for closing costs. government, we have no faith in
your ability to discharge your call 1-833-853-7629 duties in a manner consistent with your constitutional responsibility and urge your immediate resignation, as chairman of the committee. >> my colleagues may think it's okay that the russians offered dirt on a democratic candidate for president as part of what was described as the russian government's effort to help the trump campaign. you might think that's okay. but i don't think it's okay. ♪ i think it's immoral. -it's all about the big picture. i think it's unethical. with miguel, our certified financial planner™ professional, i think it's unpatriotic and, yes, i think it's corrupt and we looked at business insurance, our mortgage, evidence of collusion. and the day we do think that's even our plans to adopt. -it's not about this fund or that fund -- okay is the day we will look it's about us. back and say that is the day -welcome to our complete freedom plan. america lost its way. -it's all possible with a cfp professional. i will not yield. -find your certified financial planner™ professional >> will the gentleman yield? >> all of us that i think we at letsmakeaplan.org. should all get to response. >> we think you ought to allow us to speak of what we think. >> you can use your five minutes to speak. you attacked me in your opening statement. >> i have not had an opportunity
to respond at all, especially to your statements of what we think. no one over here thinks that. >> and wolf also today, jared kushner, the president's son-in-law and senior adviser unexpectedly appeared at the senate intelligence committee as part of their russia investigation. at least one investigation is still moving forward at the moment on a bipartisan basis. >> seeing that exchange, manu, reminded me of what the house -- what mueller concluded, what the this isn't just this is moving day with the fibest in-home wifi experiencel u.s. intelligence community concluded, that one of the russians objectives in and millions of wifi hotspots to help you stay connected. interfering in the u.s. elections was to sow political and this is moving day with reliable service appointments in a two hour window so you're up and running in no time. show me decorating shows. dissent. if that was one of their objectives, clearly they've done this is staying connected with xfinity to make moving that by raising this issue. manu raju, thank you very much. simple. easy. awesome. stay connected with the best wifi experience and two-hour president trump is on his way to a campaign rally, where he may appointment windows. click, call or visit a store today. try to fan the flames over the mueller report. he has a good start just now as he left the white house. abby philip is on the scene for us. update our viewers. >> reporter: the president just left here a few minutes ago for
michigan for the first campaign rally since the mueller report was summarize ed in that barr letter. the president has been taking a victory lap over what he calls a vindication, but also going on the offense. this rally tonight could be one of those opportunities for president trump is on his president trump to really ramp way to a political rally in up his supporters. michigan right now. and he gave us a little preview you can see the crowd is already of what he might say tonight on gathering in grand rapids, michigan. the south lawn. the president will be there >> well, look, i've been going fairly soon. earlier, the president and his through that for almost two years. it's really much more than that. republican allies in congress if you look back, you could unleashed a ferocious attack on probably look at the insurance the chairman of the house intelligence committee, policy area in terms of timing. congressman adam schiff. let's ask our political and it's a disgrace what happened. legal analysts for some serious analysis. this was a terrible thing that start with you. listen to the house minority was put on to our country. nobody has seen anything like this, probably never happened leader kevin mccarthy. >> does america truly believe or does adam schiff truly believe before. beautiful conclusion. i haven't seen the report. he knows something more than mueller, that 40 fbi agents, 19 beautiful conclusion. and there was no collusion at attorneys, 2,800 subpoenas, 500 all. there never was.
everybody knew it. witnesses looking into 13 i wish he could have gotten it different countries and saying in one week instead of taking almost two years but the result no collusion at all? was great. no obstruction. he needs to resign from the no collusion. no anything. committee. >> why do republicans feel so >> and i need to note that the emboldened right now to go after president is also traveling with two of his outside advisers, adam schiff? >> look, adam schiff has been a david bozy, who has been thorn in the side of the president for quite a while now. he's the president's top target. but you have schiff out there encouraging the president to go saying he still believes there's after people who have been collusion after we got barr's investigating him the past two assessment of mueller's findings years. saying there's not an indication while the president is dealing that there was actually with this mueller fallout he's collusion or coordination also trying to change the subject to health care. between donald trump and his this week the administration announced they are seeking to associates with the russians. now, i think you're hitting a lagger head of a political invalidate the entire affordable question versus a legal care act law. sources tell us the white house question. bill barr drew a legal has no plan. conclusion from, you know, what the president says now that they the special counsel gave him and are in no hurry. the special counsel drew a legal listen. >> so, obamacare has been an conclusion. absolute disaster. schiff out there is saying he i have asked john barasso, still behaved unethical ly. senator, bill cassidy, who is a i think that's enough to spark
terrific health care person, the ire of republicans and many of them are calling for his rick scott and others to take a resignation. look, form a really great plan. >> how do you see it? >> sara is exactly right. kevin mccarthy calling for adam we're winning the lawsuit to terminate obamacare in texas. we are winning the texas lawsuit schiff to resign from the and right now we're on the winning side. intelligence committee will not make him resign. if nancy pelosi said it's time hopefully, we'll win at the for him to resign that's another appellate decision, to terminate thing. in fact, it emboldens democrats behind adam schiff. obamacare. the cost of obamacare to people we always knew where we would be is far too much. the deductibility is ridiculous. at some point after the mueller it averages more than $7,000, meaning it's unusable. report was finished -- i'm not going to same out because it's obamacare has been a disaster. not come out to it yet but we've gotten to it faster than i we will take care of thought. donald trump from the sunday pre-existing conditions better afternoon until now, no collusion, no -- fully than they're taken care of now. exonerated. again, like many things he says >> the president is suggesting a there are elements of the truth. small committee of republicans on capitol hill tasked with it's the stephen colbert coming up with a new health care bill. truthiness thing. as of this moment, though, we there are elements of truth but know that there is no plan that it's not the whole truth and so the white house has at the i think you're seeing this fight moment. while republicans undoubtedly do over 2020. we've written stories, other not like obamacare, many of them people have written stories
on capitol hill are nervous about how the trump campaign is about what happens if the weaponizing the mueller report, affordable care act gets thrown trying to raise money after it, out and there is nothing there saying the media has been wrong to replace it. but sources are also telling us this could also be about all along. politics for president trump. he's trying to shore up his 99 charges filed against 33 sporters on a major people and three entities. vulnerability for him, making it that's not nothing. clear that he's still working on that doesn't mean donald trump this issue, knowing full well that it's not very likely that clooud an affordable care act replacement will make it through colluded with the russians. a divided congress any time but the to say this was a witch soon, wolf. >> health care will be a huge hunt, tell that to george issue in the 2020 contest. papadopoulos, rick gates, paul abby philip, thank you very much. jerry connolly of virginia manafort. just because it didn't bring down the president of the united states doesn't mean that it joining us. thank you very much. wasn't a credible investigation, launched, by the way, by rod >> thank you. >> house intelligence committee, they used to have a strong rosenstein, a trump appointee. tradition of bipartisanship, >> they want schiff to resign as nonpartisanship, republicans and chairman of the committee. democrats working together. the president goes one big step that is gone. >> at least for now, i think further. congressman adam schiff, that's right. >> have you ever seen something knowingly and unlawfully lying like that in the house and leaking should be forced to
intelligence committee, where resign from congress. the chairman -- i know they have goes one step further. >> i think he feels emboldened had problems with devin nunes. based on attorney general last time he was forced to william barr's summary of the remove himself over some issues. it's getting worse. mueller report. it's pretty extraordinary. there's no question that adam >> yeah. i think this is a pattern that has not only affected the schiff will not resign, not from intelligence committee but his chairmanship of the intelligence committee nor from frankly the entire congress. congress. adam schiff came out very forcefully in the defense of his increasingly, my republican own conduct and statements that colleagues have decided that he made, in the point that he made today in public was that it's to justify, and rationalize while the special counsel report may not have established a criminal conspiracy between the his behavior. as you heard obviously for a lot trump campaign and moscow, that of democrats, adam sc hichlt ff does not mean that the pattern key among them, this is of context, as chris was just profoundly offensive, given the pointing out, between members of the trump campaign or associates stakes. of the president and the russian it isn't normal. it isn't okay to be government or individuals with known ties to russian collaborating with, coordinating intelligence were somehow now with russian operatives about irrelevant. the presidential election. there's still so many unanswered questions about that 2016 that's not normal. we don't do that. meeting at trump tower in new you'll have to explain yourself. the fact that mueller york, and the conversations apparently, based on a four-page around a trump tower moscow summary, we haven't seen the project, paul manafort sharing
300-page report, has concluded polling data. that there was no collusion, that reinforces the ways in which democrats will continue to doesn't mean that there weren't push for the full release of the inappropriate contacts. report. they believe that the special >> can adam schiff continue to counsel may have made other determinations on aspect of coordination even if he didn't be chairman with almost half of find collusion. the republicans saying they >> these numbers are important. 16 people associated with donald trump had contact with the should resign? >> i don't think we can have a russians during the campaign or situation where the republican during the transition. minority will decide who the six of them lied about it to either congress or federal democratic chairman will be. >> even if it undermines the investigators. credibility and effectiveness of again, that doesn't mean that that committee? >> frankly, that's -- what would donald trump colluded with the russians, but the idea that be the alternative? donald trump pushes day in, day out on twitter that this is some milk toast person who witch hunt, this can never offends nobody and pleases happen again. what can never happen again? nobody and the committee does an investigation that led to a nothing? >> here is one ramification, as number of guilty pleas? >> joey, let's not forget, we've only seen a four-page summary of someone who has covered the what is maybe a 300 or even intelligence community. longer mueller report. there could still be a whole lot the administration, executive of very embarrassing, damaging branch, always share the most information involving the sensitive, classified information with what's called president of the united states. the gang of eight.
that would include the chairman are republicans potentially and the ranking member of the getting ahead of themselves? house intelligence committee. >> yes, they are, wolf. there's going to be a reluctance and, yes, i would go one step right now on the part of the further. executive branch to share not that there could be damaging information with adam schiff. information, there is damaging >> i don't know that. information. let me explain. i don't say that as a partisan. i don't know what his relationship is with, say, the i say that as an objective head of the cia. i will point out to you that evaluator of what we know. what do we know? there is no exoneration, no there's a reluctance between the intelligence community and the collusion, no diversion, no president of the united states in terms of at least whatever the branding the president says but it explicitly says is he not exonerated. if someone is not exonerated, to conclusions. it's not adam schiff who me that means there's damning disagreed with our intelligence information there that could organizations. it was donald trump, about certainly hold him accountable whether there was russian and that's certainly interference in our election. problematic. >> everybody, stick around. more news we're following. so, if we're going to look at we'll do that after a quick that standard, then we ought to break. ans? yes! call for noncooperation between i just wanted to show you something i've been wor... the intelligence community and the president of the united ♪ states. >> so a bottom line is, as i've james r. and associates. anna speaking... ♪ just said, if the russian -- one of the russian objectives was to james r. and associates. anna. ♪ sow political dissent, undermine democracy in the united states by interfering in the 2016 [phone ringing] baker architects. this is anna baker. election as the intelligence committee has concluded and the
at northwestern mutual, mueller report has concluded, this is what our version of financial planning looks like. according to the bill barr tomorrow is important, but you're ready to bet on yourself today. letter sent to congress, that was mission accomplished. find an advisor at northwesternmutual.com. >> tragically, yes, i think that's right. i think they got far more than introducing miracle-gro's next big thing. what they invested in that performance organics. operation than they even finally organics that work. expected. >> house democrat tells cnn that the primary obstacle right now tested and refined by plant scientists... in releasing the full mueller for twice the results, guaranteed. report is the presence of grand don't grow a snack, grow a feast. jury material. don't grow a flower, grow a million dollar view. that normally is not made available. is that something you're going this new organic collection of soil and plant food to demand to see? is what you always wanted. obviously if it's redacted for no compromise, just results, guaranteed. classified information, you understand that, but what about grand jury information? >> here we have to weigh public miracle-gro performance organics. interest. normally, of course, there's reason to protect the testimony done in secret before a grand jury. in this case, that has to be weighed against the right of the public to know one of the most important special prosecutor reports ever filed about a president of the united states. at a comfort inn with a glow taround them, apparently it's 300 pages. so people watching will be like,
"wow, maybe i'll glow too we've only got a four-page if i book direct at choicehotels.com." summary. who glows? i think the latter trumps the just say, badda book. badda boom. former. we've got to err on the side of book now at choicehotels.com. release, even if it compromises grand jury testimony. >> ten years of statements from president trump's accounting fi firm, following the accusations from his former lawyer, michael cohen. donald trump, in his words, routinely misled lenders and insurance companies. washington post released a report today, detailing what might mean a trip back to the doctor's office they call several instances where the president reportedly, just for a shot. but why go back there allegedly inflated his net when you can stay home worth, inflating number of home with neulasta onpro? lots for sale at a golf club, strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection. adding ten stories to trump tower, exaggerating the size of in a key study neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%, a virginia vineyard, exaggerating the size value of a a 94% decrease. neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta westchester county estate, hiding buildings with loan debt. the day after chemo and is used by most patients today. in your opinion, does that amount to outright fraud? neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. >> i think this depends on the do not take neulasta if you're allergic to it nature of the document. or neupogen (filgrastim). if you're producing a brochure an incomplete dose could increase infection risk. that you make available at some ruptured spleen,
sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, kind of fair or festival or allergic reactions, promotion setting, that in and kidney injuries and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. of itself, i don't think, would report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing constitute fraud. it's deceptive marketing but or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, might not rise to the level of serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. crime. on the other hand, if you are if you'd rather be home, presenting that as documentation ask your doctor about neulasta onpro. to justify a loan from a financial institution and pay no more than $5 per dose with copay card. knowingly falsify the information you're providing to inflate the value in order to qualify for more money for a loan, that is called fraud. >> trump tower in new york document states it's 68 stories versus 58 stories. >> we do know size matters to this president. >> gechlt rry connolly, thank this is a very difficult job. failure is not an option.a. you for joining us. >> thank you, wolf. lawyers for the actor jussie more than half of employees across the country bring financial stress to work. smollett is demanding an apology if you're stressed out financially at home, you're going to be too worried to be able to do a good job. after mayor emanuel says he should reimburse the city for i want to be able to offer all of the benefits
the investigation. that keep them satisfied. and the president says the fbi it is the people that is really the only asset that you have. should step right in and calls the jussie smollett case, i'm put your employees on a path quoting now, an absolute to financial wellness with prudential. embarrassment to the country.

my name is roger zapata. we're the tinch family, be right back. and we are usaa members for life. with moderate to severe crohn's disease, to begin your legacy, get an insurance quote today. i was there, just not always where i needed to be. is she alright? i hope so. so i talked to my doctor about humira. i learned humira is for people who still have symptoms be. we're back with our of crohn's disease after trying other medications. political and legal analysts. and the majority of people on humira the mueller report is 300 pages. we've gotten a four-page summary saw significant symptom relief and many achieved remission so far. give us a sense of what you're in as little as 4 weeks. hearing about the scope of this humira can lower your ability to fight infections, report. including tuberculosis. >> more than 300 pages plus serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, exhibits, which run for many, many, many pages. including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, who knows if we'll ever see and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, those. bob mueller's report was comprehensive. and new or worsening heart failure. that's how it was described substantive of the but remember before treatment, get tested for tb. all that stuff we learned from tell your doctor if you've been to areas michael cohen about the original where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, search warrants, back in his e-mail to 2015, used all these are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. various words to keep track of his phone calls -- not to listen don't start humira if you have an infection. to them, but keep track of his phone calls and collect data on be there for you, and them. his computer. ask your gastroenterologist about humira. mueller knew so much about all of these witnesses and i think with humira, remission is possible. we're going to see some of those
details in whatever version we see publicly, but it shouldn't surprise us to know that this is a very substantive, substantial report i want to know how many pages those exhibits are. >> nancy pelosi, the speaker, said that bill barr, the attorney general's summary in four pages was condescending, arrogant and it wasn't the right thing to do. >> here is what's difficult. if bob barr -- i keep doing that. if william barr, bill barr, had issued nothing and spent all of this time between sunday, when we knew -- friday when we knew he had it until now going through it to offer a more fullsome summary, democrats they're america's bpursuing life-changing cures. would criticize that, too. in a country that fosters innovation you know, for me, you have to here, they find breakthroughs... like a way to fight cancer see -- we have to see more of by arming a patient's own t-cells... the report to judge what barr's letter did and did not say. because it's not just about the next breakthrough... i'm with joey in that the "does it's all the ones after that. not exonerate" the president of the united states seems to suggest there's more in there, even if it's not criminal, there's more in there than barr
let on. i don't know how you could make a conclusion. i assume nancy pelosi has not that rocking chair would look grahh, new house, eh?e. seen the report. well, you should definitely see how geico could help you save on homeowners insurance. i don't know how you could make nice tip. i'll give you two bucks for the chair. a conclusion that he was disingenuous and condescending two?! that's a victorian antique! if you don't know the source all right, how much for the recliner, then? text. maybe he was, but i just don't wait wait... how did that get out here? know that. >> sabrina, how aggressive will that is definitely not for sale! democrats be to get the whole is this a yard sale? report? >> democrats are making clear if it's in the yard then it's... for sale. they're going to keep on oh, here we go. demanding the release of the full report and want an entirely geico. it's easy to switch and save unredacted version of the report on homeowners and renters insurance. to be made available to them and available to the public. i think one of the main concerns that democrats are raising is that they fear that there may be an effort to withhold some portions of the report under the guise of it being classified but instead that would perhaps be a vehicle designed to protect the president or prevent the release of information that might incriminate the president or his associates. i think this is something that may well be litigated in the courts and could make its way up to the supreme court if it's not resolved by the justice
department in and of itself. >> joey, is congress entitled to see a very sensitive grand jury material? >> wolf, i wouldn't say entitled. i would say, though, that there's an interest for them to see it. i mean as a matter of course, grand jury material wouldn't be given to congress. i think here, and the congressman you had on earlier, connolly, said it, and i agree with him. you have to balance the secrecy of a grand jury proceeding -- protecting the integrity of the investigation, the target of an investigation, don't want them to abscond from justice, want people to be clear and accurate. there are all kinds of good reasons to have secrecy. breaking news over the on the other hand, you want -- controversy of actor jussie when there's a significant smollett. president trump labeled the case, i'm quoting now, an public interest here, there could be release. and we saw that in 1974, where absolute embarrassment to our country. his remarks came after the city they released to the house judiciary committee on of chicago sent smollett a watergate, the grand jury proceeding. i think they're on pretty firm request for $130,000 for covering the cost of his claim of being assaulted. ground. >> stick around. more news we're following, including a cnn exclusive. sources say president trump made nuclear threats against north

you are learning the president was distracted by what was a war of words with the north korean leader. what are you finding out? >> reporter: sources tell cnn president trump was using startling language when talking about north korea when he visited puerto rico in 2017. that's when he toured the island to see the devastation left by hurricane maria. that was the day when we remember the president was tossing paper towels out to storm victims. according to our sources, this comment the president made came up in a conversation between mr. trump and puerto rico's governor. this was on the same day as those paper towels. the sources say during this conversation, the president pointed to an aide carrying the nuclear football, that's the briefcase used to authorize a nuclear strike, and said that was something that he had for the north korean dictator kim jong-un. the president said according to our sources, quote, this is what i have for kim. that remark shocked the governor who couldn't believe what he was hearing. during anticipa interview, he s
was a private conversation he had with the president. he did not deny the comment. here is what he had to say. >> there were other topics that were being discussed. my view is that the puerto rico. >> reporter: he was distracted by north korea when he was there? >> he was talking about a whole host of other issues. i would rather leave those conversations internal. >> reporter: do you deny that happened? >> i don't confirm or deny. i would rather keep those things internally. again, the focus should be on puerto rico. >> reporter: he was in washington today to lobby congress for disaster relief money for puerto rico as the island is still waiting tens of billions to rebuild the island. this week his aides went to the white house to appeal for a meeting between the president and the governor. those aitds tell us top white house officials including the trade adviser threatened them to stop complaining, adding the governor is quote f-ing things
up. when asked about that, the governor told us his team will not be bullied. here is what he had to say. does it f bully? >> if the bully gets close, will punch the bully in the mouth. >> reporter: just like that? >> just like that. i don't -- it would be a mistake to confuse courtesy with courage. >> reporter: the president told republican senators earlier this week behind closed doors that puerto rico is wasting disaster relief money. the governor says that's not the case and people in puerto rico believe they have been treated as second class citizens. >> the president just a little while ago, he pushed back hard. he is touting billions of aid he claims is for puerto rico saying he has given more money than either florida or texas.
>> reporter: that's right. that's not the case. puerto rico received a fraction of the billions of dollars that they need to rebuild the island, a fraction of the money that has been authorized and appropriated by congress. the president, you are right, was asked about some of the governor's comments earlier today. mr. trump insisted that he has done more for puerto rico than anybody else. here is what he had to say. >> puerto rico has been taken care of better by donald trump than by any living human being. i think the people of puerto rico understand it. you do have a mayor of san juan doesn't know what she's doing. they have to spend the money wisely. they're not spending it wisely. >> reporter: leaders say that's not the case. the governor believes the solution to give this basically the kind of care that is needed down in puerto rico is for that island to have statehood. they have been fighting for this up on capitol hill. started that fight today. they believe they need that
power up in congress. right now, their representatives have almost no political power. >> jim acosta, thanks. the breaking news. as democrats demand to see the full mueller report, a congressional source says the primary obstacle is the presence of grand jury information. will the attorney general allow lawmakers to see that material? you still stressed about buying our first house, sweetie? yeah, i thought doing some hibachi grilling would help take my mind off it all. maybe you could relieve some stress by calling geico for help with our homeowners insurance. geico helps with homeowners insurance? they susa bundle of money too. i'm calling geico right now. cell phone? it's ringing. get to know geico and see how much you could save on homeowners and condo insurance. get to know geico and see how much you could get 2 medium, every day at marco's, 1-topping pizzas for just $6.99 each. because it takes two... to make a great everyday value. every store.
