"out front" tonight, breaking
4:01 pm
news. donald trump expected to endorse house speaker paul ryan tonight only 72 hours after he said he didn't support him. paul ryan meantime says no one said anything to him or his office about this. he's hundreds of miles from green bay tonight. he won't be at the rally. >> i've been running around kenosha, so i haven't heard anything, to be honest. >> trump speaking live in just minutes from now to a crowd of thousands of supporters in the crucial battleground state of wisconsin. these are live pictures from green bay and meantime, trump spent his day slamming hillary clinton. >> well, this is the legacy of hillary clinton. it's called death, destruction, chaos and weakness. she is a weak person. i'll tell you what. i know her. she's weak. she lied about it. she lied about it, pathological. she lied about it over and over and over again. >> and i am joined tonight by my
4:02 pm
panel of political experts. they are going to be here with me for the hour. i want to begin, though, with jason carroll who is out front with the trump campaign in wisconsin. 72 hours ago trump with great fanfare saying he's not there yet on a ryan endorsement and suddenly, he's there. why now? >> a very good question. there could be a number of answers and a number of reasons for that. it could be the bad publicity and it could simply be because he's decided to see reason and finally decided to figure out that perhaps having members of the gop establishment on your side is not such a bad thing after all. >> and if you don't like me, that's okay. vote for pence because it's the same thing. great guy. >> donald trump, refocusing his sights on hillary clinton after a turbulent week. >> she's really pretty close to unhinged and you've seen it. you've seen it a couple of
4:03 pm
times, but people in the background know it. the people that know her know it, and she's like an unbalanced person. >> reporter: the republican nominee also taking a step toward unifying the gop with his expected endorsement of house speaker paul ryan at his rally in wisconsin tonight. trump caused another intraparty rift earlier this week when he said he was not ready to endorse ryan's reelection bid. gop vice presidential nominee mike pence split with his running mate after trump said he gave the go ahead. >> he came up to me and said do you mind? he's a good guy. >> ryan said today he has not spoken to trump since the convention last month and again, suggested his endorsement of trump is not set in stone. >> there's never a blank check, and you know that. i see no purpose in doing this tit for tat petty back and forth with donald trump because it serves no good purpose in my mind. >> reporter: ryan and other top
4:04 pm
wisconsin republicans, governor scott walker and senator ron johnson are expected to skip tonight's trump event in green bay. the clinton campaign also blasting trump on foreign policy today releasing a new tv ad featuring conservative trump critics. >> if he governs consistent with some of the things he said as a candidate, i would be very frightened. all this as clinton picks up the endorsement of former cia director mike morel who referred to trump in a new york times op ed as unqualified and a threat to national security. even adding that trump's praise of russian president vladimir putin had turned him into an unwitting agent of the russian federation. pence responding that trump has the toughness to stand up to putin. >> people that know donald trump knows that he knows how to stand up, and he knows how to stand strong and standing up to russian aggression is going to be really different under a
4:05 pm
trump/pence administration. >> and it should be noted, erin, that trump supporters say he's been far more focused at his rallies as of late andmore focussed in maine and more focused earlier today in iowa, less shouting, less screaming and less name calling and more on message. erin? >> jason, thank you very much. manu raju is out front in washington. trump is finally planning on endorsing ryan. you've been talking to your sources and is this going to stop the bleeding between trump and the gop leadership? >> it depends on what donald trump does next in the next couple of days and paul ryan did a radio interview in which he said i wish he would be more disciplined and top republicans i talked to hope this doesn't just amount to one step forward and two steps back. since donald trump reopened this
4:06 pm
old wound with ryan we've heard republicans deliver this simple message to donald trump and attack hillary clinton and not your own party and don't engage in the unwinnable fights though he did with the khan family. i am told by a source familiar with the private meeting earlier between john mccain and mike pence that john mccain was very clear. if you want to keep control of the senate and you want to win the white house, make sure trump is focused on hillary clinton and that will unite the party and erin, i am told that mike pence agreed with that. if donald starts to begin to make up some ground in the polls the establishment will get behind him and if the standing continues to slide expect more and more republicans to abandon their nominee. manu, thank you very much. >> thank you. ? out front tonight, congressman lee zeldin is a veteran of the iraq war. good to have you with us again. let me start with this endorsement of paul ryan that we are told will happen at this
4:07 pm
rally tonight and 72 hours after donald trump said he would not support him and he is now going to do so. what could have changed in that timeframe? do you have concerns that trump is caving to pressure from the gop establishment? >> well, i don't know all of the different factors leading to mr. trump's calculation as it relates to this endorsement. i do know that as far as wisconsin goes, paul ryan is very popular and there are people who like him throughout the state. you have governor walker and the chairman of the rnc from wisconsin, and it might be a particular effort on his part to try to reach further than the people who are supporting him right now. i'm not sure what the calculation is. >> what is your gut reaction to the fact that our understanding at least from paul ryan, and he said he doesn't know what donald trump is going to say. he's not going to be there. does that worry you that there doesn't seem to be any sort of communication between these two men on this. >> again, i don't know what mr.
4:08 pm
trump is going to say tonight. i don't know anything that is adding up to his endorsement of speaker ryan. i do think that it is smart for everyone who lives in wisconsin who does like this speaker, and if you fast forward to january, he is still the speaker of the house and mitch mcconnell is still the majority leader and mr. trump is in the white house. as far as trying to achieve policy goals, you can't do it without congress and building that bridge will be helpful if they're all there. >> interesting take on it and it's important for trump to do what he needs, paul ryan. the former cia chief mike morell said he is voting for hillary clinton and in an op ed he wrote of trump, the traits he's exhibited suggest he would be a poor, even dangerous commander in chief. these traits include his obvious need for self aggrandizement and his overreaction to perceive
4:09 pm
slights and his tendency to make decisions based on indue igdz and his refusal to facts and his unwillingness to listen. and that is a man who worked under three candidates of both parties, what do you say? >> i don't know how an endorsement like this will influence the outcome of this race and it is something that we are obviously discussing tonight. you can make an argument on behalf of strengths and weaknesses that both candidates have. i think that the former cia director did go pretty far in accusing mr. trump of possibly being an agent. that would be his conclusion. >> so, he did go too far and as far as hillary clinton goes, she is not perfect as far as her foreign policy goes. there should be a substantive debate about what the future is, with our relationships with iran
4:10 pm
and what should be the right policy with regards to refugees and strengthening our relationships with our friends like israel and that's substantive debate over what's less than 100 days left and that debate and that vetting will have a much more -- a much more -- a much bigger outcome on the impact of this race that any endorsement like this one. >> thank you very much for being with me. my panel is with me, alex burn, political reporter for the new york times, kayleigh mcnerney and amanda carpenter and clinton supporter corinne jean pierre. three of the past four cia directors in the past few days said that donald trump is not acceptable to them. hayden said so earlier this week. you have morale now and leon panetta in incredibly strong terms said it at the convention last week and was also in an interview saying that with us. that's pretty damning. >> i think they're taking political stances, honestly.
4:11 pm
if you look around the world we can't afford four more years of the last eight years when you've had 30 isis affiliates, and i think they should be introspective and ask themselves how we got to this point and ask themselves if they're the best to recommend how to go forward given the trajectory we've had so far. >> basil, three of the last four. >> it's a pretty amazing thing and to be honest what they're responding to is this capriciousness that donald trump exhibits and they can't trust his leadership. it doesn't show mere inexperience. there is a political immaturity there that i think they're responding to and rightfully so. >> lee zeldin is not a member of the political establishment and he made it clear in that interview that he is glad that donald trump is getting onboard with paul ryan and it's important and politically necessary for him to do so. what does that say to you? will trump right the ship with this endorsement tonight? >> it's a no-brainer. he's speaker of the house and happens to be a really good guy, he's popular in his district and oh, by the way, his primary
4:12 pm
opponent is calling for a debate over total muslim deportation. he is trying to out trump trump to such an embarrassing degree that if this guy would have any traction in this race it would lead to such an explosion and discussion of the logical extension of trumpism that he doesn't want to the go there. he needs paul ryan to win and it's in everyone's interest and the fact that he made this an issue speaks to how bumbling his candidacy is. >> and paris, to that point. why did he do had this? why did three days ago he said he wouldn't and three days later that does not show a person of speaker and strength. >> speaker ryan did the same thing. >> he took a month to think about it. >> i need to weigh the options. i don't know him, and i need to get time to do that and now donald trump has done the same thing. at the end of the day the party has to unite and this is a good step forward for donald trump to
4:13 pm
do that, to unite the party especially in wisconsin. >> all of you will stay with me for the hour. next, hillary clinton doubling down on her e-mail as the head of the rnc calls her a liar. plus dramatic video, chicago police firing 15 shots at a black teenager, chasing him down and killing him. we are standing by for donald trump moment away from a major rally as critics question his mental state including fellow businessman billionaire mark cuban. listen to this. >> i thought there was an opportunity. >> if anyone went off the reservation and went bat [ bleep ] crazy.

4:17 pm
green bay. this is a crucial rally for donald trump on this friday night. just moments ago trump going after hillary clinton questioning her mental state. >> unstable, hillary clinton, lacks the judgment, temperament and moral character to lead this country, and i believe that so strongly. she's really pretty close to unhinged and you've seen it. you've seen it a couple of times and she's like an unbalanced person. >> unbalanced and close to unhinged and that attack after democrats and republicans have raised questions about trump's mental state. tom foreman is out front. >> reporter: it may be the most biting talking point from the foes of donald trump, but there it was again. listen to democratic vice presidential contender tim kaine. >> he recently criticized me saying i was a bad governor of new jersey, and people -- >> i think he confused you with
4:18 pm
tom kaine. he was governor of new jersey 26 years ago. i absolutely think he's confused. >> it was a constant theme. >> he spoke for 70-odd minute, and i do mean odd. >> that trump is somehow confused, delusional or just not with it. >> together, let's elect a sane, competent person with international experience. >> reporter: and it didn't start there. for months, democrats have savaged trump's ideas this way on the economy, women, foreign affairs. >> they're not even really ideas, just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies. >> reporter: to be sure, trump's behavior is often unexpected. >> i said oh, i'm going to hit them. >> reporter: erratic. >> oh, i don't remember! >> reporter: and unconventional for a presidential contender, spurring critics to call him a sociopath, mentally ill and plain crazy, but others soundly
4:19 pm
reject those claims. >> you know, he's not crazy. at the end of the day he doesn't have discipline. >> reporter: there is zero medical evidence to back the accusations against trump. a statement released by trump's doctor of almost 40 years says the nominee has no significant medical problems and at a recent complete medical examination showed only positive results. trump brushes off like lint. >> i have one of the best temperaments of anyone that's ever run for the office of president ever because i have a winning temperament. i know how to win because my whole life i've been winning. >> reporter: still democratic congresswoman carol bass has started an online petition demanding a psychiatric evaluation saying trump's impulsiveness and lack of control appear to be symptoms of a mental disorder. >> a man you can bait with a
4:20 pm
tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons. >> now, it is worth noting many of the things that trouble trump's foes delight his fans and his willingness to break the rules of washington, to challenge political correctness and to say what he thinks and that has kept him within spitting distance of clinton in the polls so maybe he is crazy like a fox. erin? >> all right. thank you very much, tom foreman. >> my panel is back with me. alex, on that point, the crazy like a fox point that tom just mentioned, the liberal columnist, let me emphasize, whatever you think out there, let's make that clear, wrote during the primary season is donald trump's bizarre outbursts helps him trump the composition and he's crazy like a fox and now i'm convinced he's just plain crazy and at this point that trump's grasp on reality appears to be a tenuous, at
4:21 pm
best. i remember reading colleagues from peggy noonan who used to work for ronald reagan about people are discounting trump and they're missing it and there is a lot there. here's what she wrote today. when you act insane people are liable to believe you're insane. people started to begin he was nuts and a total flake. how significant is that? >> i think it's hugely significant, erin. when you look at polls about testing the matchup between trump and clinton his temperament is personal capacity to perform the responsibilities of the presidency is probably the biggest hurdle for him outside of the things he's done to offend various specific groups of voters. when i talk to voters out on the field who are undecided. i was up in new hampshire and maine the last couple of days, they say i just don't know about this guy and i was talking to a republican donor today, he's crazy like a fox and now i'm not sure that he's crazy like a fox. this is exactly what trump
4:22 pm
supporters like about him and so you end up with a guy who is doubling down on the strategy that brought him here versus democrats and tried to turn that into a weakness. >> peggy noonan is a good voice of the republican party establishment and it's a damning thing to say and this is liberals in the never trump movement overreaching because if you will question his mental capacity. letta's look at the evidence. he's built a $10 billion brand and he's raised children with sterling reputations and he beat out 16 competitors in a field in which he never participated in and that is politics and to overreach and go to this unbelievable level i think it will backfire. >> cohrin, to it point, hillary clinton is close to unhinged, i want to say close to. he put that qualifier in there. donald trump has survived every type of attack so far and he's turned it successfully on his
4:23 pm
opponents before. he's trying to do it now. could he succeed? >> here's the thing. here's what we need to remember about donald trump. he is a ruthless, diabolical businessman. he knew exactly what he was doing in 2012 and 2011 when he was the spokesman for the birther movement and he knew exactly what he was doing 13 months ago when he launched his campaign. >> so you're crazy like a fox. >> i'm just saying he knows what he's doing and we're giving him an excuse and it's not about his sanity and he knows and he is zeroing in on the populous base and that's how he got the 13 million people. >> paris, it's not just democrat, though. independent, republicans & have all questioned his sanity. >> let's elect a sane, competent person with international experience. >> and donald, i mean, in this i really hope that he would be something good. you know, that as a business person i thought there was an
4:24 pm
opportunity there and then he went off the reservation and went bat [ bleep ] crazy. >> we can make america great again, but we will not do that by putting an unstable narcissist in the white house. >> this is what you call dog whistle politics. they're trying to dukakis donald trump and question his mental state like he's unfit for the presidency. >> the truth is you can talk about someone's qualifications which i think he is qualified to run, but you can also go into this narrow lane of questioning somebody's mental capacity like they did with dukakis and for hillary clinton and it is coordinated effort by the establishment and republicans that are still unable to get onboard and it's deplorable and they should stop it today. >> i think it's ridiculous for serious people to seriously question donald trump's mental capacity. what is happening is he's driving the rest of us insane and he's trying to get a charge and he has conspiracy theorys to stir it up.
4:25 pm
he likes to stir up traffic online. he's doing it to us. he's not insane and he does know exactly what he's doing and we shouldn't be falling for it. >> just a word, i do want to be clear that mental illness is a real thing and we should not -- we should not conflate what trump is doing with real mental illness. that said, this is an individual where i think what we're all saying is we have no sense of his comp as. we don't have a sense of -- even if you want to talk about whatever business acumen he may have. there are other folks like michael bloomberg who ran -- >> by the way, michael bloomberg's was not meant in jest. they're serious. >> michael bloomberg has an international empire and ran as mayor of new york that was not the way donald trump is running. he called hillary clinton a devil. there is no -- i don't know what it is. it's not insanity, but it -- but i do believe and i do agree that there is a method to what he's
4:26 pm
doing that it is clearly connecting with his supporters. the only question is does it actually grow from what he currently has now? >> i do want to point out, there is a history of light-heartedly suggesting that the other guy on election may not be all there, right? democrats in '64 when they crushed barry goldwater, that he is nuts and we have seen this before. >> right. right. although it is a bit different this time. >> okay. thanks to everyone for staying with me. >> next, we are standing by for a live appearance by donald trump and hillary clinton surprising reporters for her first press conference for eight months with another winding explanation of her e-mails and he was wrong about a video with a plane carrying ransom money. you don't know this yet but in fifteen hundred miles, you'll see what you're really made of. after five hours of spinning and one unfortunate ride on the gravitron, your grandkids spot a 6 foot banana that you need to win. in that moment, you'll be happy you partnered with

w...i was always searching for ways to manage my symptoms. i thought i had it covered. then i realized managing was all i was doing. when i finally told my doctor, he said humira was for people like me who have tried other medications,... but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief... ...and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections... ...including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers,... including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions,... ...and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common,
4:29 pm
and if you've had tb,... ...hepatitis b, are prone to infections, ...or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. if you're still just managing your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.
4:30 pm
tonight, hillary clinton doubling down on a misleading claim about her private e-mails. in her first press conference in 245 days, that's a lot of day, clinton insistninsisting that t public remarks on her e-mails
4:31 pm
was truthful. >> what i told the fbi which he said was truthful is consistent with what i have said publicly, but i do think having him say that my answers to the fbi were truthful and then i should quickly add what i had said was consistent with what i had said publicly. >> one issue, though, is that statement does not seem to be consistent with comey's testimony on capitol hill. suzanne malveaux is out front live in washington. trump and the republican party are seizing on these discrepancies. >> reporter: yeah. they certainly are, erin because think about it i was in the room with 1400 other journalists in that room and you could hear a pin drop as people were trying to follow what she was saying. this is a response that took about five minutes and at times it was confusing and it was meandering and i'm not sure this whole idea of the short circuited explanation shed much light on this and so it really was an opportunity for the gop to seize on this and to seize on the narrative that she is not
4:32 pm
trustworthy. we heard from reince priebus, the head of the rnc, judging from the way hillary clinton kept lying at today's, vent it's not hard to see why she hasn't held a press conference in 244 days. the trump campaign all over this, more examples of habitual lying and it was a pretzel-like response to a simple question. i'm not sure that she did herself much favor here in putting that out there the way she did. it was detailed, but it was very confusing. what she did do, erin, is that she pivoted and tried to take attention away from the trustworthiness and e-mail and said look at all of the things i've done for the american people and the voters. they instilled their trust in me when i've gone out there to fight for jobs, fight for children and fight for women, and they're trying to establish that way of thinking and that strategy, when people think whether or not they can really believe what she says. >> all right, suzanne, thank you
4:33 pm
very much. i want to bring back my panel. basil, let me play again for viewers what she said about the e-mails and then what comey said about her just so everyone can understand exactly what we're talking about here at its core. let's just play it. >> i am confident that i never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received. >> secretary clinton said there was nothing marked classified on her e-mails either sent or received. was that true? >> that's not true. there were a small number of portion markings on, i think, three of the documents. >> so why does she keep saying it? >> what he also said was that there were markings on these e-mails which could have easily led to someone saying or believing that these, mails were not classified. in her mind they weren't classified. somebody looking at it in another way could come to the same conclusion, that's what he said. look, she'll be dogged by this for a long time throughout the rest of the campaign.
4:34 pm
they can pin the aspirations on her being indicted and that clearly is not going to happen and she's trying to do a really good job of sort of saying, look, i understand there are issues of trust here, but if you look at my record we can go beyond that. >> of course, she also said, paris, that she would believe me, i would know what is classified and not classified. you heard suzanne describe it. it was tortured and five minutes and still people didn't understand what she was trying to say. >> you know, it's funny. she is very disciplined at staying on message and the problem, erin, it's the wrong message and nobody gets the message and she continues to reinforce the narrative that she's not trustworthy and she can't understand or accept the fact that people have a serious issue with her telling the truth and this explanation of three to four minutes of going on and on is not truthful. anybody who watched what comey said can understand that -- that's not what he said. >> watching her today something clicked to me while her untrustworthy numbers are bad.
4:35 pm
>> 64%. >> she doesn't trust herself to speak about this. she hides from the press and this is the first time she's talked about it in i don't know how many days. >> 245. >> she can't speak about these issues and it's in an overly lawyered manner in which reporters who covered her for years can't even understand. she's got to fig you out a way to talk straight with people otherwise she'll never heal those numbers. >> i was just going to say, unfortunately it's a distraction she doesn't need and she needs to stop talking like she's a lawyer and the message that she needs to be on is, look, i made a mistake. i would never do it again and leave it there and move on. a good day for hillary clinton is when we're talking about donald trump racing down a rabbit hole. >> her explanation today was what she said to chris wallace. she said what i was trying to say is the fbi said to them was truthful and fine, she went on to say and what i've said to the public was consist went those
4:36 pm
statements. we know that what she said to the public was untruthful and what she did today was put the question in voters' minds and we know what you said to us was untruthful and if that was consistent with what you said to the fbi did you commit perjury to what you said to the fbi? that was having multiple devices and not turning over all work-related e-mails. >> when it comes down to unruthful and it comes down to intent and that's why he would not have gone that far because she had not intended. >> legally it comes down to intent. >> and to the public. >> and this is the kind of thing, erin, that just makes republicans who were not with trump all along, i would assume that amanda is in this camp just, like, my goodness. imagine if we had a nominee that hadn't buried this under fighting with the gold-star family, fighting with john mccain and paul ryan and we could spend the whole week with hillary clinton. >> she didn't get much coverage this week and yet, kayleigh, what she did get were a lot of
4:37 pm
polls that could be good for her. we could be to a dead heat tonight and tonight we are getting something from georgia, and the deep red state hasn't gone democratic since 1996 -- 1992, i'm sorry, and here we are 44%. she is ahead and that is georgia, and serve polls this week state and nationally that shows she has leads. >> the polls are bad, no doubt about it, but i can hope this is a crucial moment, a good moment where donald trump can say the polls are down, and i need to change something and something must auto correct because as paul manafort said, voters want change. they don't want the status quo and he can win in and combat those polls. >> what i would say is given everything that we just talked about with these e-mails and what it shows to me is more and more americans believe that hillary clinton is a strong leader and she would be a good leader for america and if you look at that in comparison to what donald trump is saying and talking about that in my mind,
4:38 pm
you have republicans and democrats and certainly independents and that's what's important is you have independents who i think are looking at this and saying, you know what? i've got to go in this direction because ultimately it's country over party and she's the proven leader. >> thanks to all. >> we are awaiting donald trump to speak in wisconsin and a lot at stake in wisconsin and he'll be there with mike pence and after admitting he was wrong about seeing video. we have that video of what seems to be that monowooden pallets in stacks on a plane and it's just something you need to see. outrage over a deadly police shooting and officers opening fire on a stolen car and the suspect an unarmed black teenager shot in the back and killed after running from police. i work 'round the clock. i want my blood sugar to stay in control. so i asked about tresiba®. ♪ tresiba® ready ♪ tresiba® is a once-daily, long-acting insulin that lasts even longer than 24 hours.

breaking news. donald trump just landing in green bay, wisconsin. he's going to be holding a rally any moment now.
4:43 pm
we are ready for this. this is a crucial moment for him waiting to see if he is going to endorse paul ryan and will he bring up the top-secret iranian footage he claimed to have seen. he claimed to see a video of a plane. today he admitted he didn't see that tape and it was a different tape he was referring to, now, though, tehran is releasing new video of what it says is the $400 million and this is pretty amazing. jim sciutto has tonight's big number. >> reporter: a pallet loaded with what iranian state television claims is cash sent by the u.s. the narrator says to pay back iran's money after 35 years. this video which cnn cannot authenticate aired in iran just days after the release of four american prisoners. at the pentagon thursday, president obama dismissed any connection between the cash payment which he acknowledged and the prisoners' release.
4:44 pm
saying negotiations were entirely separate. >> we announced these payments in january. this wasn't some nefarious deal, and we explained that iran had pressed a claim before an international tribunal about them recovering money of theirs that we had frozen. >> until today, donald trump repeatedly claimed to have seen what he kalcalled secret video cash being unloaded in iran just as those american prisoners were freed. >> the tape was made, you saw that with the airplane coming. nice plane and the airplane coming in and the money coming off, i guess, right? that was given to us, has to be, by the iranians, and you know why the tape was given to us? because they want to embarrass our country. >> reporter: this morning mr. trump withdrew that claim
4:45 pm
tweeting this reversal, quote, the plane i saw on television was the hostage plane in geneva, sw switzerla switzerland, not the plane carrying cash to iran. trump referring to this video, showing the plane that carried the freed americans. however, the timing of the two transactions and u.s. prisoners going out and hundreds of millions of dollars going in still raises the question of whether the americans' release was conditional on the payment of money. saeed abedini, one of the freed american prisoners told fox news that he and his fellow americans waited at the airport in iran for hours the night of their release and when he asked an iranian intelligence officer why. >> he told me we are waiting for another plane and if that plane takes off then we're going to let you go. >> cnn asked a state department official whether iran would have freed the prisoners without that payment.
4:46 pm
this official told cnn it was unknowable. >> that money did not go into iran on an american plane although the president has said it did go in cash one more note, this video that we're seeing of what iran claims is this money is not the same video that donald trump had claimed to have seen. he now says, to be clear, he never saw video of the money. he only saw video of the hostages going free. erin? >> right. thank you very much, jim, and of course, you know, he said the iranian government released that video and now they are releasing this video which is very interesting, and i want to ask the colonel cedric lleyton, and i want to ask you this because you saw one of the freed american hostage. an iranian intelligence officer said we're waiting for another plane to take off before we can let you go. president obama said that $400 million was not ransom. does it sound like, though, that it was a ransom payment or at least conditional?
4:47 pm
>> absolutely. it sounds like it was a ransom payment or a conditional payment, and it was clearly, in my mind based on the way that culture works it was definitely a payment that had to happen before those prisoners were released. >> it was pretty stunning just to hear that man say that that they were waiting for another plane. the implication is that it was the cash plane. >> i want to ask you about this video, right? donald trump said he saw this video and now he says he hasn't seen the video and lo and behold the iranian government is coming out with video of the $400 million in wooden pallets. there's something about the tangiblity of this if this is all of the money and all of these wooden boxes of money which is pretty stunning. why would tehran release this now because trump brought it up? >> well, in part, i think it's really to embarrass the administration and they know it's part of the election discourse that we have here in this country and they also, in essence, wanted to tell the
4:48 pm
administration no, we believe that we were paid in order to release these hostages and therefore we're going to tell our version of the story to the american people and to the world, and that's, i think, why they did that. >> colonel leighton, thank you very much. >> you bet,ier i ieerin. >> standing by, donald trump, and we know he will endorse paul ryan and paul ryan says he doesn't know what donald trump will say and we'll be watching that and that will be an incredible moment and video of police chasing a stolen car and opening fire and killing the suspect, an unarmed black teenager. ♪ if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months,
