heavy snow right now. here's our next system coming through the midsection, sunday morning. maybe some severe storms across the deep south. the question is, when this thing approaches the coastline, does it make a turn toward the northeast? it will be a storm one we'll be tracking closely over the weekend. >> winter is hanging on. washington now, multiple new developments in russia, including that president trump is questioning witnesses about their witnesses. our chief justice correspondent pierre thomas is tracking the latest. >> good morning, overnight, news breaking that the president may have been talking to witnesses about their conversations with the special counsel. and we're getting more evidence that bob mueller is still pursuing if there were any ties tweet trump associates and ties close to putin. sources tell ax news after reince priebus appeared before
7:09 am
the special counsel president trump was curious and wanted to know how the encounter had gone. during that conversation last december, trump asked priebus if the special counsel had been nice and if he was treated fairly. according to a source familiar with what was said. the question is, should the president be talking to witnesses about their testimony? the president pushed white house counsel don mcgahn to deny the "the new york times" story. mcgahn interviewed by the special counsel, never released that statement which would have been false. lawyers for the president did not respond to abc news. but sources close to the president tell abc news the conversations were innocent and took place after the witnesses testified. meanwhile, abc news is learning the special counsel's looking into whether this man, george
7:10 am
nader helped facilitate a back channel meeting in the seychelles island. with erik prince. right before trump's inauguration. nader represented the united arab emirates said he was part of it. according to a transcript, prince responded know. schiff telling abc news in a statement last night, he wants to bring nader before the committee to get to the bottom of what happened. george, the white house also responding to that lawsuit filed by stormy daniels the adult film star who claims she lad an affair with president trump more than a decade ago. the lawyer said president trump must have known about the payout to keep her quiet.
7:11 am
tom llamas has the latest for us. >> this is getting uglier by the day. we told you about that lawsuit earlier and now throw in a restraining order. the back and forth right where the white house doesn't want it -- in the headlines. this morning, new details about president trump's legal fight with porn star stormy daniels. the president's longtime personal attorney michael cohen, obtaining a temporary restraining order against daniels from an arbitrator trying to silence her not to does close confidential information about an alleged affair with the president. did your client stormy daniels have sex with president trump? >> yes. >> no doubt about that? >> no doubt in my mind. >> reporter: the ruling connected to a nondisclosure agreement daniels signed days be ever the election. now daniels is suing the president saying that agreement is not binding because he never signed it. >> there's a signature line for mr. trump on the agreement. he was obligated to sign it and
7:12 am
he never signed it. >> reporter: just three weeks ago, cohen admitted to using his own money to facilitate a payment of $130,000 to daniels said in a statement, neither the trump organization noer the trump campaign was party to the transaction. >> he said, listen, i paid $130,000 this agreement was in place. >> why are fighting this. >> because daniels wants to tell her side of the story. >> reporter: the white house trying to push past this. >> look, the president has addressed these directly and made very well clear that none of these allegations are true. this case is already been won in arbitration. >> reporter: daniels pea attorney says that's not true and the notion that president trump didn't know about the $130,000 payment is absurd. >> any suggestion by mr. cohen,
7:13 am
the white house, the president or others that the president, mr. trump at the time, would not have been informed of something this significant in the waning days of the presidential election is ludicrous. >> now this could be a major gamble for stormy daniels. according to that nda she signed, there's a clause that she's found in breach she would owe the president a million dollars. the flip side if she wins the nda is tossed. she could probably sell her story for whatever price she wants. let's talk to dan abrams about this. let's talk a about this lawsuit, what are her prospects for success? >> in effect, she has two arguments here. number one there was no contract. he didn't sign it. number two, if there's a contract, first of all, they would argue that cohen violated it by admitting there was a payout and as a result the contract should be null and void.
7:14 am
so, interesting legal argument. not a frivolous case, either. >> the president, these conversations he's having with people after they speak with mueller. not ra problem because they come after. not legal problem necessary but not a good idea. >> any lawyer advises someone in this kind of situation be careful not to be seen as talking to most importantly, interfering with most, most importantly, trying to sway witnesses who are testifying in connection in this sort of matter. i don't think there's anything in this report that's a problem per se. has he had conversations with other prospective witnesses? and how would it fit in if he ever sat down with robert mueller? >> meantime, also very clear that robert mueller is looking at collusion with russia
7:15 am
potential collusion with russia. >> this is about this seychelles meeting. the heart of investigation right now, being june 2016 to february 2017. this fits right into that key period and the question becomes, why? why were they setting up these back channels with the russians? this is not an investigation, i think, of some technical violation of the law with regard to the transition period. also at the white house, a looming announcement that could spark a trade war. let's bring in cecilia vega. he was set to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum as early as today. >> the signing that was supposed to be happen is very much up in the air. george, allies around the world are outraged by this prospect. the president saying a trade war could be a good thing. the white house is willing to make some concessions for allies
7:16 am
like canada and the mexico. but our allies in eur livid. here's products that americans could end up pay more for bourbon, peanut butter. part of the reason why gary cohn quit last week and republicans are outraged by this. >> unclear when the formal announcement will be. george, now to those new concerns about the amazon echo. a new report out says more than 47 million use devices in their homes. some now are complaining their alexa is randomly erupting into laughter. amazon is revealing what may be behind it. who better to tell this story is t.j. holmes.
7:17 am
>> you're home alone and it's pitch black and then you hear this. [ laughter ] >> it's creepy. if you home alone, you hear that could terrify you. most people right now are having fun with this. tweets, of course, fell asleep when my alexa starts letting out a creepy laugh. another one, hearing amazon echo laugh late at night when i didn't expect is the most fri t frightening thing. >> has amazon figured out why it's hammond. >> it's being triggered by a phrase. if you say -- this thing is on. turn the lights off. it gets mixed up and starts laughing. >> it's completely silent and all of a sudden, they're asleep and they hear the laughter. >> is amazon doing anything
7:18 am
