tv   Anderson Cooper 360  CNN  September 29, 2015 5:00pm-6:01pm PDT

5:00 pm
good evening, tonight, the man who has been called boyfriend and foe alike the best campaigner in modern memory weighs in on the other clinton in her campaign, bill clinton, known before as the big dog, speaking to erin earlier about his wife's presidential run and calling her poll-worthiness into question. and yes, the big dog showed he could still bark. >> oh, come on, i've answered these questions for three days and i'm not here to practice politics. if i were sitting in your chair and you were sitting here and you wanted to run for office and i had four or five months to make sure nothing but the opposition's negative claims on you were run and i presume your
5:01 pm
guilt with every question and i beat up on you, do you think i could run your payrolls down -- i'm -- look, i trust the american people, they are innately fair. but they have to have more disclosure. if she wants her e-mails released, the state department and others are arguing about whether any of them should be retroactively examined. she is the only one in history that said just release my e-mails and examine them all. so far you get the record out. i think she looks great. i think she has been doing a good job answering these questions now. she has to run that campaign, answer the questions and get back to the big issues of the
5:02 pm
election. >> erin also asked president clinton a question that just about every campaign watcher wants the answer to, namely whether they're about to get more of them to see. >> the question is how much of a force will you be in this campaign? we have not seen a lot of you. >> first of all, it is true that i have done markedly less to this point than i did eight years ago when she ran. eight years ago i did a lot by now of what i have only done two things. i did some of the fundraising events so she would be free to come out and campaign. i have no idea what else i will do. you know, i'll do what i'm asked to do within the limit. but she was great about this. she said in the beginning, you got to take care of the foundation first, it's your life. you built it over 15 years. and whatever you can do when you can do i'll be grateful. and we sat down and mapped out the year and said well, let's wait until it's over. i'll do the best i can.
5:03 pm
>> as we all have witnessed his best can be something to see. but so can his bad moments. almost anything that bill clinton has done on the campaign trail or his wife has made the campaign trail a pretty interesting place indeed. in a moment we'll be joined by someone who saw it all firsthand the last time hillary clinton ran for president. first, though, randi kaye. >> former president bill clinton, downplaying his skills as a surrogate for hillary clinton. >> he was cool, calm, collected, he calibrated himself, and then he would drop a bomb. i don't know anything about politics, and then he would drop another bomb. that kind of bill clinton would be a tremendous asset to hillary clinton. >> bill jones thinks of him as one of the greatest defenders of his wife. listen to him on fareed zakaria. >> i have never seen so much
5:04 pm
expended on so little. the other party doesn't want to run against her and if they do they want her as mangled up as much as possible. >> he is one of the strongers po strongest political leaders on earth. >> will he make mistakes like 2008? earlier the president said this about then senator barack obama's campaign. >> give me a break. this whole thing is the biggest fairy tale i have ever seen. >> only to explain later that he was talking about obama's stance on the iraq war, not obama's quest to become the first black president. bill clinton also compared obama's south carolina primary win to jesse jackson's successful campaign in the state years earlier. a comment that angered black voters who thought he was marginalizing obama. clinton tried to explain. >> i think that they played the race card on me.
5:05 pm
this was used out of context and twisted for political purposes by the obama campaign to try to breed resentment elsewhere. >> after the interview, the former president thought his mike was off. then went on to say this. >> well [ bleep ] do you? >> when reporters asked about the comments, the president was the one pointing fingers. >> you always follow me around and play these games and i'm not going to play the games. you have mischaracterize the it. >> the reality is, they forgave him as soon as obama won, and since then he has not made those mistakes. >> bill clinton has 65% favorability. so why not put him on the trail sooner. supporters say he could steal the spotlight from his wife. he tends to connect with voters more than she does. and is tremendously popular.
5:06 pm
all the advantages that even outweigh the possibility of him even going rogue. >> randi kaye, cnn, new york. >> thank you, let's dig deeper, joining us someone who has had to campaign against the political force that is bill clinton, david axelrod, the former senior adviser and senior political commentator. and david, you know better than anybody what it is like to go against the others in a campaign. he has pluses, also minuses, are you surprised he has not been out there more this time around? >> no, i'm really not. because i think the campaign wanted to establish hillary in her own right. you know, i always say it's hard to shine when you're standing next to the sun. bill clinton is one of the singular politicians of our time, it is difficult for him to play a supporting cast role in any play in which he is involved. i also should add i did work
5:07 pm
against him on that one election. he was probably the most valuable supporter president obama had in 2012 in his re-election campaign. did an incredible job for us at the convention, an incredible job for us on the stump. here is the difference, they're not married. and i think it's different when you're out there campaigning for somebody else than when you're out there campaigning for your spouse. it's easy to become irrascible when that happens. cleeshl he was very controlled in his interactions tonight and has been in his interviews the last couple of weeks. but there is a downside, because of the passion that he brings to it in being an advocate out there on a regular basis for his wife. >> you mentioned 2012, in 2012 he was to explainer in chief for you guys. >> exactly. >> he is downplaying his
5:08 pm
political skills. you heard it in randi's piece. do you really believe that he is not as connected to politics as he once was? do you really believe that he is rusty? >> yes, i believe those things. i also believe he is like a race horse and when that bell rings he goes right to the post. he is great at it. one of the singular political talents of our time. this is not a clear case of one or the other. i think he has value. but i think you have to be careful about how often and how you use him because you could run into the other problems you run into in 2008. it is a reminder that the clintons have been around for a long time. and when you're trying to talk about the future you don't want a visible reminder of the past. >> so you have to be careful. you have to time it correctly, when is the right time?
5:09 pm
>> well, i think that you know they will be -- there will be events at which he may want to speak as a is yosurrogate. and there may be events where he tries to answer a question on the particular controversy that is going on. by and large i would play a benign role in the background rather than being a featured part of the drama. >> a lot of democrats say you have a big month ahead with hillary clinton. you have the cnn debate on the 13th, and the appearance before congress to answer questions about e-mails and benghazi. do you see bill clinton playing a role during those events? >> well, i sure don't think so. i think look, we should not minimize the strengths that hillary clinton has as a candidate. barack obama debated her 25 times when we were running in 2007 and 2008. so i got a first hand look.
5:10 pm
and then i actually worked for her in 2000 when she ran for the senate and saw her debate there. she is a first-rate debater. a very clear thinker. she is experienced. she has been on this track before. she is very serious about policy. i think she will do very well in the candidate debate. we have seen before she knows how to testify before congress. i don't think she is intimidated by that at all. and she has a chance to actually advance her cause in these events in october. but she will certainly be under pressure to do so. >> all right, david axelrod, thank you so much for your experience and your insight on this. as we discussed, another reminder right now. a debate right here on cnn, the first chance to see all the democratic contenders on the same stage at the same time. anderson cooper will be the moderator, las vegas, nevada. tuesday october 13th, right here on cnn. another reminder, joe biden by the way has been invited to attend. he has until the last minute to

5:15 pm
of the best businessmen around, he says he wins so often that as president he will win so often you will get sick of hearing him saying it. on the other hand, you will hear the other people talk about not winning with donald trump. they lost, lost money, as much as $35,000. their students were promised success simply by enrolling in his university, the trump university, which turned out to be a failure. and worse, a complete fraud. today, cnn correspondent drew griffin is keeping them honest. >> reporter: this was the promise of trump university when it launched. >> at trump university we teach success, that is what it's all about. success, it's going to happen to you. >> it operated from 2005 to 2010 and enrolled 2,000 students in real estate courses that ranged from free seminars up to $35,000 for advanced training and
5:16 pm
mentoring. >> i think the biggest step towards success is going to be sign up at trump university. >> for a while it was a business success. trump university took in an estimated $40 million from people who believed they, too, could someday become successful. >> put proven donald trump secrets to work for you. >> but it turns out not everything donald trump promises comes true and not all of his businesses lead to success. trump university is closed. >> and it ended. why did it end? >> well, the economy crashed. the real estate market crashed and demand fell off a little bit. so while the company continues to exist it's not accepting -- currently not accepting more students and has not since 2010. >> the attorney defends the school from two separate lawsuits, two class action lawsuits filed in california, and one by eric schneiderman.
5:17 pm
>> we started to look at trump university and discovered that it was a classic bait and switch scheme. it was a scam starting with the fact that it was not a university. they promised they were going to teach people with hand-picked experts by donald trump. the teachers were neither hand-picked nor experts. >> he was very involved. from the early stages he was meeting every week, two weeks, with the people who were going to run the day to day operations of the course. >> so the allegations that he had nothing to do with this. that he didn't pick a single expert, is false? >> it's completely 100% untrue. >> the new york attorney general declined to be interviewed for this report but provided affidavits that he obtained from students at the school, like this one student who said he had not been able to get in touch
5:18 pm
with anyone after he signed up for the elite gold program. one student who paid $25,000 to have special access to high level mentors claims he has not been able to get in touch with his non-existent power team. one student said it was a bad business venture on his part. trump university is now called trump entrepreneur initiative. the school says it never promised anyone would meet the donald. >> there are at least 10,000 people who paid so you can go and pick three or four affidavits from 20 people or maybe 30. it is still a small amount. i have in my bag and i'm happy to read to you all the people who love the courses. >> he did, providing cnn with fourteen affidavits from satisfied students. he will continue to fight, saying even if legal fees wipes
5:19 pm
out everything he made. in the end, trump university may have taught everybody a valuable lesson. not everybody's dreams come true, not even, including donald trump, will become a success. >> i feel like the first person to tell you that will be donald trump. >> absolutely. >> you have to work hard, out-fox a lot of different people. >> he must know in his heart a lot of these people don't have what it takes to do what i did. >> let me just take a step back, i agree with you. all we can do is provide the tools for people to go out there and apply these things. if i can't control what happens out in the real world. if someone goes and takes our classes and decides to sit on the couch and apply it, i can't help it. >> in the end, trump has won another california court battle. a judge just made it harder for any students at trump university to get any money back in damage even if the students can eventually prove the school was just one big fraud. and so far, trump is winning.
5:20 pm
>> drew, these cases have been dragging on and on and on and on. any sense of when it will be decided? >> and it has been going on a long time. lots of legal maneuvering, trumps team has been able to whittle away how many of trump's students could prove damages, and at this point in time the merits have yet to be decided. at this time it seems it will not be decided soon at all. >> so donald trump is the frontrunner in the campaign. how will this affect the campaign? can he fight this at the same time he is trying to become president? what happens if he does become president? >> you know, believe it or not trump's lawyers say they had discu discussions about what to do about it in case he becomes president. trump's attorney says look, it's not the first time a sitting president had to fight a lawsuit. but john, a long, long way to go in both the campaign as you
5:21 pm
know, and apparently in the battle over this trump university. >> all right, drew griffin, thank you so much. just ahead, a key moment for jeb bush. will his fundraising for the third quarter be enough to convince possibly anxious donors? they're making the right bet. fact. every time you take advil you're taking the medicine doctors recommend most for joint pain. more than the medicine in aleve or tylenol. the medicine in advil is the number one doctor recommendation for joint pain. relief doesn't get any better than this. advil and i didn't get here alone. there were people who listened along the way. people who gave me options. kept me on track. and through it all, my retirement never got left behind. so today, i'm prepared for anything we may want tomorrow to be. every someday needs a plan. let's talk about your old 401(k) today.

happy fundraising quarter deadline eve. all the presidential candidates hoping for a little extra in their stockings. they have less than 24 hours to pull in more money. a nerve-racking moment more for some than others, and not necessarily who you may think. jeb bush raised more than $116 million most of it raised by his super pac. some bush donors are getting anxious. they want what everybody in the business wants right now, big fundraising numbers in the third quarter to his personal campaign versus his super pac. joining me now, chief political analyst, gloria borger.
5:26 pm
gloria, this last-minute fundraising push and a day before the deadline tomorrow. the stakes seem so high for the push campaign right now. they seem to be pushing so hard, despite the fact they had so much money in the bank between the campaign and the super pac. what is going on here? >> well, look, jeb bush has raised more money than any other republican candidate. he spent the first part of this campaign raising $100 million for his super pac. but this now is campaign money so it's a proving ground for him, particularly since he is away? fifth in the polls. and this is money that is very, very important to the bush campaign. because it's the money that they will be able to directly spend on their own message. on their own ads. on their own organization in early states like iowa and new hampshire. so it's important symbolically. but it's also important in terms of how they get out the vote in
5:27 pm
those early states. >> and gloria, i know you have been talking to the bush campaign. they hate these ideas, the whispers of donor panic, don't they? >> they hate it. i had one senior adviser tell me it's ridiculous. he doesn't know where it's coming from. their point is as jeb bush always says is that this is a marathon, it's not a sprint. and the senior adviser said look, i would rather be ahead in the winter than now. we have the organization to go the distance and we will do that. but it's very clear to me that they're looking over their shoulder. they're looking at marco rubio. and they're a little bit nervous. and there are donors out there who say look you know, we have invested $100 million in this fellow and we want to see more than 7%. now, the campaign has to prove that their candidate can deliver it. >> i have political professionals on both sides that will tell me that the bush campaign is built for the long haul. it is too early to comment.
5:28 pm
i want to bring in our cnn reporters. let's take on jeb right now, 7% in the polls, i don't care when it is or how long there is to go until election day. but being in fifth place for jeb bush right now, the optics just are not good. >> look, i -- not only am i supporter i'm also a donor and a bundler to his campaign. and i can tell you these whispers of panic are anonymous. when you start to see actual people being attributed to giving the quotes that is when there is a problem. what you see now are a bunch of articles that don't quote any actual donors. yes, i would like jeb to be in a better place. but i also know because i know the insight, that his campaign is built for the long haul. we criticized him a lot before he officially announced for spending so much time putting a
5:29 pm
financial structure together. well, he put nuts away for the winter, for the lean times so he is not going to be running on fumes any time soon. look, john, this is as big as it gets. there is only one way to run in presidential politics. nervous, hard and scared. and everybody should be scrambling today for donations. it's one day before the end of the quarter and those numbers are going to be important and they're going to be looked at in every campaign. >> so amanda, you used to work for ted cruz. do you get the sense that the other candidates out there, that at the smell blood in the water? or as anna says and as other people have told me today they see the bush campaign as fundamentally strong, built for the long haul? >> well, i think it's important to look at the way the bush campaign began. they want to have a big shock and awe strategy, raising $100 million in an attempt to clear the field and keep people away.
5:30 pm
well, that didn't even clear the field for lindsey graham. and even others such as walker and perry who are competing for the governor mantle, somehow bush is not clinching that segment of the field that he needs to. so i think people are worried, giving marco rubio a second look particularly ones worried about the foreign policy. and the super pac will dump $125 million into the race, and if there is no bump from that they will have to start looking at donors. >> i got an e-mail from former president george h.w. bush. a lot of people got the e-mail, a fundraising e-mail, he said this e-mail is not like others, he wanted money for jeb bush's campaign. i think more are scheduled. is there a problem for people like jeb who wants to prove he is his own man, not his father, not his brother. is there a problem to lean on
5:31 pm
that name for that money? >> i think he is kind of over that at this point. because he needs to lean on them. when you look at the favorability ratings of george w. bush in the republican party he has, get this, an 88% favorability rating. his father has an even higher rating. jeb bush's favorability? 49%. so if you're jeb bush and you want to raise money you're going to go to your brother. i think his brother is more of a general election problem perhaps than a primary problem. and he is going to use whatever he can to look like he is doing well in this fundraising quarter. >> so anna, one of my favorite things is to put you on the spot as a jeb bush supporter but a friend of marco rubio and a player in politics. who would you rather be as you sit here today? jeb bush or marco rubio? jeb bush ahead in some polls, he
5:32 pm
is the one some believe could grow and move ahead in the polls? >> john, i would rather be john berman than either of them and be asking questions on tv instead of having to do it. and actually being anna navarro and watching it is not bad today either. but i got e-mails from mothers, grandchildren, fathers, grandchildren, from imaginary friends all asking for money for campaigns because it is the end of the quarter and it is a kind of panic for everybody. if you look at the e-mails you would think the apocalypse is going to come if you don't give money to one campaign or the other. anybody in politics will tell you do not answer the phone. do not open up e-mails any time two, three, days within the
5:33 pm
closing of the quarter. do it at your own peril. >> all right, amanda carpenter, gloria borger, watch out for your e-mails, for goodness sakes. >> don't open it. all right, coming up, a fugitive accused of capturing women and abusing them. now, thanks to a tip seen on the story with john walsh "the hunt." we'll speak to this story. plus, the latest in afghanistan, part of the battle to reclaim a city taken by the taliban. can protect capital long term. active management can tap global insights. active management can seek to outperform. that's the power of active management. you haven't seen your bedike... in days. no, like you haven't seen a bed in weeks! zzzquil. the non habit-forming sleep aid that helps you sleep easily, and wake refreshed. because sleep is a beautiful thing.

my psoriatic arthritis i'm caused joint pain.o golfer. just like my moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis. and i was worried about joint damage. my doctor said joint pain from ra can be a sign of existing joint damage that could only get worse. he prescribed enbrel to help relieve pain and help stop further damage. enbrel may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal, events including infections, tuberculosis, lymphoma, other cancers, nervous system and blood disorders and allergic reactions have occurred. tell your doctor if you've been someplace where fungal infections are common, or if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores, have had hepatitis b, have been treated for heart failure, or if you have persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness.

5:38 pm
>> paul jackson is just a monster, he needs to be caught. >> officers were tipped off to him when 17-year-old andrea hood says she was kidnapped by jackson and his half brother. they chained her to a bed and sexually tortured her for days before she was able to escape. >> they thought it was a type of drug induced fantasy by these prostitutes but it actually happened. >> the investigators found an basement where the torture was done and where they were assaulted. >> once all that evidence was there it was very easy for us to say let's go put them in jail. >> but jackson and roberts fled, not to be heard from until 2006 when roberts turned himself into police. during his trial, another accuser, mikhail dedric,
5:39 pm
testified. >> you terrorized me and left me emotionally crippled beyond words or expression. >> despite facing a 108 year sentence, vance roberts didn't give the investigators any insight until his brother's possible whereabouts. >> he is still doing exactly what he did. leopards don't change their spots, these guys. >> nearly 25 years later jackson remained on the run until his case was recently featured on cnn's "the hunt" with john walsh. soon after, a source says that a substantial tip came in leading them to believe paul jackson had been hiding out in mexico for several years. nearly a quarter century after he fled, paul jackson was arrested monday leaving a hotel in guadalajara, on his way to work. one woman says she hopes it brings closure.
5:40 pm
>> it's like it brings all the emotions again. i hoped this day would happen but never actually believed it would. >> cnn learned overnight jackson was extradited back to the united states. cnn, new york. >> so jackson is expected to be in a los angeles court tomorrow morning for an extradition hearing. joining me now is john walsh, with cnn's "the hunt." john you said you were saddened and sickened that this character was still out there. so what is year reaction now that he is behind bars? >> truly thrilled, jake, it proves to me once again if you show the creeps on television and it's a privilege to do "the hunt" with cnn, and i had shown these guys several times on america's most wanted. but it proves to me if you give a tip, find a way to leave a type anonymously, there is no need to be known. do the right thing, they gave us
5:41 pm
the tip, the u.s. marshals and the task force in hillsborough and portland, got that tip and acted on it immediately and took this creep down almost 25 years on the run. i would hate to think what he did during those 25 years. but jake, i was thrilled to hear he was in cuffs. >> you say this guy, paul jackson, was one of your most wanted fugitives. what was it about him that made him so dangerous? >> well, you know, i am the father of a murdered child. so the cases that hit me the hardest are the low life cowards that prey upon children and women. and these two guys preyed upon very disadvantaged women. young prostitutes, 16, 17 years old with drug problems. they would grab girls off the streets. they would torture them for days. and this girl, this andrea hood, was so brave, jake. she saw a window to get away and
5:42 pm
