iber being in this room actually in that chair behim be there when he came out and said james comey had been fired. the appointment of the specialu l of robert mueller, so lots of people at play he as on capitol hill lawmakers are talking about bits and pieces of this. i will say democrats in large pafrt have looked to pivot away discussion of the mueller report and instead talk about health care. ware going to look at all of it coming up on nightly news. >> the president yesterday on the hill said republicans are going to become the party of health care. do we have any idea what that's going to look like if obamacare is totally repealed? >> it's so interesting because administration officials today, here's what my sources a teing me that essentially they believe turning to obamacare, focusing t on this fig over the health care law could be politically advantageo for the president,
