4:00 pm
>> poppy harlow, cnn, omaha. >> now more than ever the history of the band chicago airs new year's day on cnn here at 8:00 p.m. from all of us a sincere very happy new year to you. erin burnett "outfront" start right now. "outfront" next. donald trump praising vladimir putin, calling the russian president smart for not retaliating against the u.s. plus who's playing whom. and attempts to block trump before he gets to the white house. and a member of the mormon tabernacle choir quits rather than sing in trump's inauguration. let's go "outfront." i'm kate baldwin in for erin
4:01 pm
burnett. "outfront" tonight breaking news. donald trump praising vladimir putin. tweeting "great move on delay by v. putin, i always knew he was very smart." this after the russian president shocked many today saying he's going to do many in response to president obama's decision to expel 35 russian spies and sanctions over meddling in the election. and throughout the day -- this russian plane is said to be on its way to the u.s. to pick up the diplomats the president has now accused of spying. moments ago republican senator john mccain making it clear russia will pay a price for its cyberattacks. >> when you attack a country it is an act of war. >> this amid escalating tensions between the two nations but for now putin says he will not retaliate. he's even inviting the kids of
4:02 pm
u.s. diplomats to a party at in kremlin. sunland, this tweet by the president elect already being picked up by the russians. >> it was only a matter of minute, kate really before the russian embassy and the u.s. retweeted that tweet of donald trump. of course that praise of vladimir putin where he said, "great move on delay by v. putin. i always knew he was very smart." it is notable that is the only thing donald trump had said today. and notable that he has yet nor anyone on his transition team has not indicated whether he will either reverse the sanctions or leave them in place once he takes office after being sworn in an january 20th. but certainly we can sense a lot already about what direction he's moving with a tone of the tweet today and the statement last night when he said in
4:03 pm
essence let's move on from all of this. going into next week donald trump will get an intel briefing from members of the intelligence community where they likely will put forward their evidence they have to reach those conclusions that donald trump and his team have been very skeptical. >> we'll see if that briefing changes any of that. sunland thank you so much. and tonight a senior obama administration official acknowledges the president elect could of course reverse president obama's sanctions if he wants once he takes office. athena jones is "outfront" with more. >> reporter: a caravan of vehicles spotted leaving this maryland compound used by russian diplomat, headed for the russian embassy in washington. coming after the obama administration ordering the shutting of the site and told 35 russian spies to leave the country within 72 hours. in a surprise move russian
4:04 pm
president vladimir putin appeared to shrug off the administration's actions. after russian officials promised a series of counter measures would be announced today, putin changed course saying in a statement we will not create problems for american diplomats. with we will not send anyone away. even extending this unusual invitation to the children of u.s. diplomats there. saying in a tweet, i invite all children of u.s. diplomats to the new year's and christmas show at the crekremlin, signed vladimir putin. contradicting his foreign minister who proposed expelling u.s. diplomats in response. >> the u.s. administration without any facts without any proof declared a new wave of sanctions against the russian federation. we cannot let such escapades happen without response. >> putin appears to be waiting
4:05 pm
for president elect trump to take office signaling once again he expecting to have warmer relations with president obama's successor. meanwhile the white house is defending and explaining its moves. >> we're putting forward a set of actions that are designed to respond to and impose consequences for russia's aggressive activity. so included in that is this expugs of these intelligence officers. >> as for the operators being kicked out of the u.s., the russian embassy was said russia was sending a plane to bring them back home. some expulsions based on the west coast. a tweet condemning what they call an unfriendly and completely unjustified step being taken by the outgoing administration. and speaking of the outgoing administration, president obama's critics on capitol hill have been slamming him for what they call years of failed policy towards russia starting with his attempt to reset relations
4:06 pm
between the two countries. meanwhile president putin something. bob we talked through the the day and as hours change things change with regard to what's going on here. vladimir putin today announcing he's not going hit back against the u.s. with regard to the sanctions they put in place. and he went even this extra step that is boggling my mind of inviting all of the children of u.s. diplomats in russia to the new year's eve party. do you believe him? >> no. i don't believe him. i think he hacked the elections. the dnc's e-mails. the fbi had come out today and put out a report today.
4:07 pm
this is forensic information. he is manipulating. he manipulated our election. and now he's manipulating our politics. the fact they didn't expel any american diplomats from moscow and he durns around and says trump is just the man we can deal with this is just extraordinary and in my many, many years working in national security i've never seen anything like this. and the fact that trump has not reacted is incredible. this fbi information is forensic. it is the same sort of evidence they send people to jail on. it is computer dna. it is indisputable at this point. >> it is interesting you lay it out that way. former new york city mayor rudy giuliani was speaking today and he said in this about the integration that president obama is working off huff.
4:08 pm
>> he wants donald trump to get his own people to gather a new intelligence report on this alleged russian hack. you have been one of the guys in the field gathering this information. is the intelligence that donald trump will be working off of different from whether president obama is looking at? >> it is going to be the same stuff. but what giuliani misses, this isn't intelligence. this isn't assessments. this isn't people trying to get into putin's mind. this is forensics. it is dna. and this is what they are all missing and it is every single intelligence agency in the united states government that this is just a fact. and the fbi director wasn't exactly friendly to hillary clinton in the elections. opening the investigation in her e-mails. so this is not completely politicized. the answer trump should give is let me see the evidence.
4:09 pm
let me decide but what he can't say is i'm going to bring my own people in and who's that? private contractors? friends? it is difficult to see where this is going but i find it highly disturbing. >> he's meeting with intelligence leaders next week. we'll see if his assessment and posture changes on this. "outfront" now. republican congressman from new york, member of the house foreign affairs committee. kmob, thanks so much. good to see you. today putin said he's not going to hit back after the sanctions. after that trump sent out his message on twitter. he writes great move on delay by v. putin. i always knew he was very smarlt. congressman, do you agree with donald trump that vladimir putin is very smarlt here.
4:10 pm
>> this situation that we face the reality with russia happens to be very complex. right now we're talking a cybersecurity. cyberattacks. but i just got back from afghanistan yesterday. in that region afghanistan, pakistan, syria, turkey. as the challenging graph/map. the entire world right now with those challenges. isolated to the course of the last couple days, i do believe putin is outsmarting president obama with his response. he's been allowed to take the high road, be magnanimous -- >> is it really taking the high road if you are the one who's first accused of starting this whole thick by hacking into our election system? >> this is just a very -- it is like a complicated inside baseball game that putin with his messaging, using twitter and
4:11 pm
communicating with the rest of the world. if you look at the realignment in the middle east, where syria is, there is a truce being negotiated with russia and turkey. and the united states isn't even involved. so i think it is more of a messaging, outsmarting over the course of the last couple of days. but, you know, it is impossible to defend the guy though. >> when it is so complex as you say, do you like that the president elect that is his only message that he's hearing. one that vladimir putin complements saying he's very smart and also what he heard yesterday that we all need to move on to bigger and better things with regard to the hacks to russia. do you like that? >> well what i would like is knowing that the united states plan is thinking six, ten, fifteen steps ahead. and right now with president obama announcing the sanctions. with a president elect coming in just a few weeks, i want more of
4:12 pm
a confidence that -- a year ago we could have been negotiating a troous. couldn't even bring rugs russians to the table. now it is impossible to negotiate a truce without having russia at the table. as i was leaving the airport yesterday the foreign syrian prime minister who defected who was leads the opposition movement was there with us in the arptd. and to think you can't sit down with him and assad and those players without bringing in the russians, we need to start thinking literally on so many fronts all across the map six, ten, fifteen steps ahead. and that is the way putin is thinking towards us and he's gaining an edge and he's doing that while we're just taking it one step at a time. >> putin's gaining an edge you think. do you think vladimir putin t russians were behind the hack in the first place?
4:13 pm
>> you know, listen. the report that came out between the fbi and dhs, i read the report. there are certain things that are missing in it. i'm a little concerned. i'd like to get the answers to certain questions that i have. it doesn't mention wikileaks. it references a couple of actors but doesn't describe the connections between those actors and the russian governments. it was a very brief report. they used large font and big pictures with a lot of holes in it. with that said president obama said that next week he's going to be providing a lomt of important intelligence to congress and i hope the questions we have we could fill in those dots because we need to move forward united in order to tackle this threat. cybersecurity, this is a huge -- >> but congressman, you have got many republican members of congress who are not balking to say they believe that vladimir putin in russia is behind this
4:14 pm
attack. do you believe russia is behind the hack? >> yeah. i -- that makes by far the most amount of sense. however i have questions that as a member of congress, i have asked entitled to get answers that unfortunately the report is still leaving open. so, you know, we have a huge threat that goes way beyond hacking. the dccc. the dnc. john podesta. we want information as it relates to -- but we have -- >> can we just get one more answer. do you think these sanctions should stand that obama put in place or reverse it? >> if he could use it, leverage it as part of a bigger plan that we're moving in the right direction and rea i lining things around the map back to the way they are supposed to be then yes he should and make it
4:15 pm
work. but it needs to be part of a larger plan and not just one step at a time. >> always great to see you congressman. thank you. "outfront" next. team trump accuses president obama of undermining the transition. is the president intentionally throwing roadblocks in the way? and another top performer quits rather than perform of trump's inauguration. why she refuses to take the stage. and some of the world's most feared leaders. why do you think they will get along with trump. the world is full of surprising moments.

4:18 pm
tonight is president obama playing politics with russia? president elect donald trump's team slamming the president over the timing of punishments against moscow for u.s. election hacks. it is just the latest chapter though under the very rocky relationship between obama and trump. souzain' melo is "outfronuzanne >> reporter: trump applauding putin's move to wait for trump to take office before responding to president obama's decision to expel russian diplomats and new sanctions. this comes on the heels of a back and forth week in which trump has blasted president obama. tweeting he thought it was going to be a smooth transition, not.
4:19 pm
>> tru . to trump saying it was going smoothly. now the president elect and his team characterizing the showdown with russia and the white house as politically motivated. >> even those sympathetic to obama on most issues are saying part of the reason he did this was to box in president elect trump. that would be very unfortunate if that were the motivating factor here, politics. >> trumps team continuing to dismiss the assessment on cyberattacks. >> we've been talking about this for a while. i think that all we heard all through the election was russia russia russia when it came to anything donald trump said or did it seemed most days and now since the election it's just this fever pitch of accusations and insinuations. >> trump supporter former new york mayor rudy giuliani
4:20 pm
suggesting the president elect not bother. >> i would urge president trump when he becomes president trump have his own intelligence people do their own report and then bang them back really hard. >> as top senate republicans john mccain and lindsay graham prepare to hold hearings and consider harsher sanctions against russia. but reince priebus and the warns the american people may not have appetite for another conflict. >> we're not interested in going to war all over the world either. >> over twitter, immediately praising putin to the top of his profile so it is the first thing people say visiting his page.
4:21 pm
and. >> all playing out on twitter, of course. "outfront" now former republican senator and presidential candidate rick santorum and former mayor michael nutter. it seems anyway the president took these steps to box in the president elect. some even think it goes a step further. >> i am completely convinced that barack obama's primary motivation is to try to delegitimize the election. >> senator, do you agree with him? >> i think that is certainly one of the motives that the president is using. the idea that you wait a few weeks before you presidency ends to handle a problem that's been
4:22 pm
ongoing and serious one for the country, where the president has not responded at all. he's been completely feckless in dealing with russia on a variety of fronts and not the least of which on the cyberside to. wait till after the election and use -- everyone talks about the hack. some of this wasn't even a hack. it was a basic -- a phishing exedition where one of the dnc officials gave a password. that is not a hack. that is just criminal activity that russia or maybe somebody else took advantage of. this this is clearly political and not one that i think is going to go down as a bright
4:23 pm
spot for the obama presidency. >> i think you are absolutely wrong. you know president obama is taking these actions, a because he's actually the president of the united states of the america. mr. trump is not yet. there is only one president at a time. secondly the administration has taken numerous actions over the course of president obama's tenure. you may not be necessarily privy our myself for the general public but certainly our intelligence community has been dealing with these issues for some time. >> michael name one. >> hey senator, senator, let me finish. third, the fact of the matter is that president obama has been very diligent in dealing whetit this particular issue even though the intelligence community knew before the election this was taking place. and if he had taken these
4:24 pm
actions before the election i'm sure we'd be having a different debate. he took his time and got a report from the intelligence community which apparently will be released next week. i think it is fairly con cluszive and he's doing what he's doing. he's still the president until january 20th and heme continue to act that way. >> president obama is planning to head to capitol hill next week to huddle with democrats to figure how to block donald trump from removing obamacare. can you understand though why trump's team are at least worried or not even worried, they are suggesting and saying that obama is trying to box them in with regard to russia? >> well, you know, unfortunately this is some of the whining that goes on in the transition of power. but when you brag you are going to remove one of the most important piece of the
4:25 pm
legislation in modern times you could imagine. anyone could see that the president is going to try to keep the affordable care act, obamacare, if you will, in place. so that cannot be a surprise. this time last year i was on my way out of office. and, you know, there are still things to be done. there is still work to be done and sometimes people get upset about that. but you took an oath. you serve until the last day and you do things that you think are right. and then when mr. trump has his opportunity after being sworn in he can then try do behavior he wants to do. but until that time president obama is still the president. >> let me ask you then senator. this is one thing that keeps g nagging on me. the past statements have cast doubt on the intelligence. if the president elect is receiving the same intelligence briefings if in the more than
4:26 pm
top members of cottangress. and the top members are congress are confident it is russia, why is the president elect so reluctant to admit it? >> first off, who did the actual hacking? or the case i mentioned before it wasn't a hack. it was voluntarily a password is given. >> it is still a hack. they use the password. it is still criminal as you pointed out. >> no no, it is clearly criminal activity. but as most people who are skilled in sooub security know the state actors aren't the one doing the hacking. there are lots of individuals doing that and then say sell the information. and could the republican -- >> according to -- this is directed from the very top levels of the russian government. that is not just from president obama. you can talk to john mccain at about that too. >> i'm unkbinsed at that point. but the bottom line is that the
4:27 pm
information gathered was -- i have no doubt they would want that information and could have purchased that information and used it. that doesn't surprise me at all. but the more important part is why did barack obama wait until a few weeks before his presidency, as michael couldn't answer the question -- >> mayor -- [inaudible]. -- did he wait too long? do you wish he had done it earlier? >> one of those situations. a little bit of damned if you do and damned if you don't situation. the president waited until he had clear, solid evidence. that the fbi, and homeland security and director have all said. and he spent time with his team. a lot of debates what to do, how to co-when to do it. it is interesting that all folks want to hang their hat on is the timing. the timing is the timing you
4:28 pm
take your action when you take your -- >> >>[chatter]. >> -- into the new year. great to see you guys. thank you very much. i sincerely appreciate it always. "outfront" next, the performer invited to sing at trump's inauguration could have simply opted out. instead she's protesting in a very public way. why? plus a top republican on a collision course with donald trump as he calls for a hearing on the russian hacks 27d get zero down, zero deposit, zero due at signing, and zero first month's payment on select volkswagen models. right now at the volkswagen sign then drive event.

tonight we're learning
4:32 pm
a-lister sifser stalone will be ringing in the new year with trump at mar-a-lago 2507b9. and one member of the mormon tabernacle choir said she's quitting the group altogether instead of performing. jean casarez is "outfront." >> reporter: marching bands around the country are going to donald trump's festivities. 8,000 participants. but tonight a new controversy surrounding those performers. jan chamberlain, a four year member of the tabernacle choir has written a lengthy public facebook posting that she is quitting the choir because it agreed agreed to sing for the president elect. it is with a sad and heavy heart. i simply cannot continue with the recent turn of events. i could never look at myself in the mirror again with self
4:33 pm
respect. i also know looking from the outside in, it it would appear that choir is endorsing tierney and fascism by singing for this man. they say the performance is voluntary and the participation continues its long tradition of performing for u.s. presidents of both parties at inaugurations and other settings. late friday chamberlain responded to criticism. >> i value the country we have the freedom of speech under the first amendment. for me this is a moral issue. not a political issue. i'm concerned about our freedoms being in danger. >> reporter: this coming just days after it was announced the legendary new york city rockettes would be performing at the inauguration. in an interview, one rockette spoke out. the measurement of us said no immediately.
4:34 pm
then there is tpercentage that said yes for whatever reason. and madison square garden which employs the dancers adding we have more rockettes request to participate than we have slots available. >> it is not able the -- it is about the american people. and we've got such outpouring of support from people all over the country it's been truly humbling. >> there is no limit to the number of inaugural balls that can be held but there is a limit to official balls in. 2013 only two official balls. now this january 20th. there will be three. two official balls and the commander in chief ball. that was originally started by george w. bush to be for select members of the u.s. military. but donald trump is going to expand that to first responders, police, fire, as well as veterans of this country. >> jean casarez.
4:35 pm
thank you so much. >> "outfront" now u. ben ferguson. and simone sanders. round two. ben, this woman could have just opted outlet of performing at the inauguration. but she quit altogether because in her words the choir is endorsing tyranny and fascism. those are strong words. >> yeah and was the choir endorsing abortion when they sang when barack obama was inaugurate because he's in favor of abortion? now this is knowing but a grand standing individual who doesn't get her way so she says i'm going walk away. there are 360 people in the choir. not all are going to be traveling. more importantly than that when it comes to religion you would think she may actually want to have influence over people that
4:36 pm
are about to run the government and have peace and harmony which is what the tabernacle choir claims to be about. this is nothing but self-righteous grand standing from a cry baby who never grew up and guess what not everyone believes with everything you believe in. and -- >> obama was in favor of a woman's right to choose. hands off my unitterus. a woman's right to choose. >> and the fact is i'm proud of. hashtag, stand for something. i think some of the language i don't necessarily agree with. i think we have to be careful of throwing hitler out there. and you normalize it when you use "hitler" when you use what happened to the jewish community just to callous' make your point. that i don't agree with.
4:37 pm
but i do agree with you have to stand for something. and -- >> what's not normal about this? >>. >>[chatter]. >> it is not normal for the next president of the united states to have waged a racist birther campaign against the first african american of the united states. >> you lost on these talking points -- >> -- hold on. >> -- not normal is for someone to come to power by fear mongering. by disparaging everyone from african americans to womens to hispanics and disabled community and i'm not going let anybody make this -- >> only half of america voted and that half of america voted vote for donald trump. these talking points about america voted for donald trump are not true. >> they did. he won the election. this is what's astoubding to me is that you sit there. >> she has absolutely the right
4:38 pm
to speak out publicly. and she clearly has. but kind of what ben is asking, what do you think and i want to get your take. you say stand for something. why do you think she wanted to speak out so publicly? you know, she could write -- she didn't need to write the post or use the language. she could have just opted to no got on the trip. >> i think it is because folks are still reeling from the election. and what we're going to see over the next years are people who really felt strongly negatively about donald trump as the next president of the united states and feel the need to speak out about that for fear they are in fact endorsing him. >> and here is my question. since she quit she said she's been harassed. bigot --. do you think she deserves being called those things is this. >> i don't think she's deserves
4:39 pm
being called those things. but when you stick yourself out there like this you are going to have some criticism that is going do come your way. get used to it. i get it every night when i come to the show. welcome to the big leagues honey. enjoy your moment you wanted here in the fame. you got your 15 minutes and if you can't handle the heat maybe you shouldn't step up there and be self righteous in way. >> according to the mormon tabernacle website they did not sing for president obama. just pointing that out. >> there you go. >> there you go. "outfront" next a top republican calls the russian hacks an act of war. but trump has his doubts. why the senator could be the thorn in the side of trump for the next four years. and a

new tonight. an act of war is what john mccain is calling the russian hacks of the u.s. election and putting him in direct opposition with president elect donald trump. >> when you attack a country it is an act of war. and so we have to make sure that there is a price to pay so that we can perhaps persuade the russians to stop this kind of attacks on our very fundamentals of democracy.
4:44 pm
>> get ready for trump and mccain over and over again. >> reporter: senator john mccain speaking out against trump immediately criticizing his choice as rex tillerson of secretary of state. >> anybody who's a friend of vladimir putin must disregard the fact that vladimir putin is a murderer, a thug, a kgb agent. >> and on allegations of russia's meddling in the elections. >> we need a select committee. we need to get to the bottom of this. >> mccain has long tangled with both parties. including the last republican
4:45 pm
president george w. bush over campaign finance, climate change and torture. >> first of all torture doesn't work as we proved. >> now with trump mccain's differences may be even more profound. over issues like immigration and especially national security. >> i am in disagreement with many of the national security positions that donald trump has taken. >> reporter: last year trump ridiculed mccain for being captured by the north vietnamese during the vietnam war. >> he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that were about captured, okay? i hate too tell you -- >> there is a body of heros that i'd like to see him retract that statement. not about me but about the others. >> but trump not backing down. >> i don't like the job yom is doing in the senate because he's not taking care of the veterans.
4:46 pm
>> reporter: mccain pledging his support for james mattis. mccain now says he will pick his battles with the new president. >> we have all kinds of challenges and my time is devoted to trying to make sure this nation is secured, not to comment on every comment of mr. trump's. >> reporter: one he's been working closely with is senator schumerer. in the last few years they worked very closely together. and now they are very close allies despite being in opt political parties. and on russia in particular.pose political parties. and on russia in particular. . as trump tries to move his agenda he'll have to win over not just republicans like mccain
4:47 pm
but a fellow new yorker in chuck schumer. >> very rare you see a president clashing so publicly with a top member of his own party. if this is the case what is it going to look like over the next four years. >> it depends on what donald trump's priorities are. if he wants to kick off the presidency on tax, repealing obamacare. regulation they can make some progress and get things done. there is a lundly risk of things the gop want do. if he wants to kick off his presidency by addressing contentious issues they will not with his allies.
4:48 pm
they will make life very difficult for him. >> and john mccain is already planning hearings next week on russia. this is going to start. this could be motivated from the capitol hill and land on his desk and if you look at john mccain's travel schedule in the baltic nation, ukraine, mexico. he seems to be out there reassuring allies that we are here for you. so john mccain with the hearing next week too i think he's really stressing the importance of the cybersecurity for example. and i think he wants to fill the gaps -- >> if they are clashing, if this mccain versus trump who, wins? it doesn't seem like the republican party does. >> the republican party does not win and as you said it is pretty rare but in a year where the republicans dominate the white house, the house the senate there could be tremendous things they could get done. there as very slim majority in the senate and if john mccain and a couple allies decide they
