7:12 am
he says he's of the investigation or the focus of investigation. what is he? >> well, we don't know because we don't have the full scope of what the fbi has, but what we do know is that he is very, very close to the president and so there is a wonderful source of information both on the specific question of russia and any contacts and collusion with the trump campaign. but then secondarily on h question of efforts the president may have taken to impede the investigation, which is one o the things being investigated now, he would have had conversations probably with jared kushner just because of his proximity. so he's a font of information even if he himself is not under any pressure for anything he specifically did. >> so they're looking for all of these contacts for information from him. >> yes. they're looking at specific contacts that he had. also, remember, what
7:13 am
election w contacts with the russian ambassador before the elections took place. that's just one distinction. but he's in the inner circle. any time you want to talk to someone in the inner circle to get information if not else. >> cbs is also reporting that he's sheikh up his communications team having a team inside the white house and outside the white house to do messaging to combat these probes. where does that place them in terms of the focus of what the white house wants to do. >> it's just a messaging problem and not anything else. this is a very familiar thing with presidents. but the challenge here that is new with this president is it is often the words from the president himself ha undermines the messaging capability of the white house. with not only the staff of the white house, the vice president, his national security advi
7:14 am
and so that is a problem that cannot be fixed with more hiring. secondarily there's a structure at the white house, which is you have many different channels of control and information and people doing what they call end runs thewho of white houses and that can'tfixed either. those are all big changes. >> john, over in europe the president berated nato members for not paying their fair share for defense. beyond that it was awkward and unusual interaction. how do you grade that leg of the president's foreign trip? >> it depends. if it's on stagecraft, yes, there were a few bumpy moments. when i spoke with gates, he said the issue is getting nato members o focus more on their contrion
7:15 am
previous presidents. so the tough language that the president uses that irritates nato members may actually be getting some of the results that he wants. >> and let's talk about montana, the special election there. not a big surprise that he ended up winning, but was it a lost opportunity for the democrats? >> well, it was one the democrats thought they could have a run at. this is a public seat to pick up. this was before the body slamming incident so democrats would have liked to have had it. but the thing that will really -- really this is about what will happen in 2018 and we always overread the special elections so this one was crazy for all of its own reasons, but the challenge for republicans is where their president's approval rating is when we get closer to the 2018 races. >> john
