2:01 am
general. especially the failure to defend the civil rights, women and minorities and lgbt americans. he said i do not take lightly the decision to testify against a senate colleague. the immense powers of the attorney general with the deeply troubling views of the nominee is a call to conscious. the attorney general is responsible for ensuring the fair administration of justice and based on his record, i lack confidence that sessions can honor this duty. also set to testify is representative john lewis. sessions is winning new support from republicans like former secretary of state condoleezza rice. rice is from alabama. she wrote a letter praising him as a friend and man, quote committed to justice as well as law and order. new questions surrounding the appointment of donald trump's son-in-law to the white house post. democrats are asking the justice department and government ethics
2:02 am
to review the appointment as senior advisor to the president. kushner is resigning from all his other jobs. transferring most of his assets to a family trust. kushner will work in the white house with no pay. as for the nepotism question, his lawyer argues that the president has the sweeping authority to pick the advisors he chooses. the law says you cannot have your son or son-in-law working in an agency. the advisor role is not in an agency. donald trump might give us an explanation in a scheduled news conference. he spoke with reporters briefly yesterday. >> all i can say is it is simple. very easy. sure i'm ready. very, very easy to do. >> have you started that process? >> yeah.
2:03 am
very much so. it is a simple process. >> cnn will have full coverage of the news conference. his first in nearly six months. that is tomorrow beginning at 11:00 a.m. eastern. >> we will hear from the president tonight and the president-elect tomorrow. >> i don't think that is an accident. starting today, confirmation hearings for secretary of homeland security nominee john kelly. this after betsy devos' hearing is pushed to next week to accommodate the senate schedule. democrats are pushing for postponement for a federal ethics watch dog can finish the review of her background. democrats are concerned about conflicts of interest. new questions raised this morning about secretary of state nominee rex tillerson whose confirmation hearings begin tomorrow. during tillerson's time as ceo of exxonmobil, the oil giant did
2:04 am
business with iran and syria and sudan through a foreign subsidia subsidiary. the sec documents unearthed by the super pac and shared with "usa today." the deals were legal because the transactions did not involve u.s. employees. at the hearing, tillerson will definitely face questions about his business ties to russia and russian leader vladimir putin. the senate foreign relations committee chair bob corker doesn't think the views on russia will be a problem. >> i don't get the sense his views on russia are out of the mainstream at all. obviously on both sides of the aisle people will ask that question. >> today will be very busy on capitol hill. two big senate hearings on top of the confirmations getting under way here. senior intelligence officials with the cia and fbi and nsa will testify about the russian
2:05 am
hacking issues and the senate committee will hold a hearing on civilian control of the armed forces committee. it is an issue since two of trump's cabinet nominees are recently retired generals. there are rules for how long you must be out of the military before you take that job. for the latest, let's bring in ryan browne. good morning. he is live in washington at 5:05 a.m. eastern time. >> reporter: yes, you are right, christine. this is the first appearance of the leaders of the taerintellig committee making on capitol hill after release that report. that report that vladimir putin ordered the services to hack the election services and in a bid to undermine the election system and damage former secretary of state hillary clinton. the report says russia expressed a preference for donald trump. this is the first time the intelligence leadership will
2:06 am
have the chance to receive questions from the senate. we can expect a lot of questions from both sides of the aisle on russia's involvement and what it means in elections in europe and elsewhere. a group of senators on capitol hill will announce an effort to ratchet up sanctions against russia for the role in the election hacking. also a hearing from the senate armed services committee. an issue that has come up because general mattis hasn't been out of uniform long enough to serve as secretary of defense. a waiver will be pursued. some who oppose the nam natiomi. >> ryan browne. thank you. he is going to have a long day. pound the coffee now. we have a mountain of activity happening in washington today. >> a mountain? >> i couldn't think of another word. a wave? a huge amount.
2:07 am
a lot of stuff going on in washington. here to discuss is best selling author ellis henican. >> a bunch. >> let's start with jeff sessions. hearing begins today. tomorrow, we understand that cory booker, the senator from new jersey, will testify against his colleague. i don't think this will keep sessions from getting confirmed. i don't think anyone thinks any of trump's nominees will go down. still, the sight of one senator testifying against another. it is a big moment. >> it is totally unprecedented. the great gentleman from the state of alabama. it goes against that. don't forget. cory booker is more likely to do that with the judgment as you just suggested that these nominees will likely get through. he doesn't want to fight that guy and face him in the senate. >> why booker? what does he get out of it? >> i think some of it is personal. some of it is probably racial,
2:08 am
if you must know. cory booker, like several other people we may talk about today, is trying to rise above the massive democratic politicians and say you know what? as we look for next generation leaders, maybe you should look at me. >> i think a lot of democrats and people who are watching democrats are wondering. >> he gets on the list by doing this. >> watching andrew cuomo in new york and more progressive on other issues. >> andrew cuomo appearing with bernie sanders talking about free in-state tuition. our chris cuomo sat down with bernie sanders. he was asking him about how he thinks the democrats should face donald trump going forward. listen to what bernie says on the challenges of dealing with donald trump. >> media always likes to jump two months in advance.
2:09 am
i don't want to repeat it, but the republicans treated president obama shamelessly and outrageously. then to expect we're going to do the right thing. we'll see. >> what the gop did on the day that president obama was inaugurated, they sat down and said our strategy will be we will be on instruct, obstruct, obstruct. we will do everything we can to make sure he accomplishes as little as possible. we will go to the american people. this guy did not accomplish anything. vote for us. that's not what we do. >> i'm not sure i understand what bernie is saying. >> democrats don't understand. there is no lack of passion in the democratic party to oppose donald trump. what they lack is a strategy. you oppose him every turn? should you find ways to make coalitions on the stuff you care about? you give a little of this and give a little of that? >> let's talk about jared kushner.
2:10 am
senior advisor to donald trump. he won't take pay. there will be minimal assets and control over. is that enough? >> it is more than donald trump is doing. this year, it will politically be enough. my goodness. we cast our eyes across the appointees, so many of them need some kind of special dispensation. the business ties alone are just way, way bigger than anything we dealt with. >> there will be people to say it is worth it. business people should be allowed to enter. >> it looks like an oligarchy. >> can i ask you about tonight? president obama delivering his farewell address. president washington did it. he did it to a newspaper. it is interesting you see president obama doesn't want to wait for historians. >> i get the sense he is
2:11 am
shifting views. barack obama would be more like a george w. bush. let the new guy do this job. as the trump administration takes power, the feelings with the current president, i'm not sitting quietly very long. we may see the first shot tonight. >> it will be fast and furious. you call it a mountain of news. >> you mocked me for in that. >> i think mountain under states. >> how about torrent? >> deluge. >> he is a best selling author. ellis henican, thank you. an epic comeback. an epic finish in the football championship. clemson outscored alabama 21-7 in the fourth quarter. this is a big deal. alabama took the lead with over two minutes to go. watch this run from quarterback jalen hurts. this is two minutes left in the

2:36 am
express concerns about the fact he hasn't been out of uniform and a waiver will be applied in this case. >> probably will not get in the way of mattis to be confirmed. ryan browne. thank you. william clay of missouri plans to file a police report against republican congress member duncan hunter of california for removing a controversy painting from the wall. the artist of the piece is a high school student in congress member clay's district. he depicted some officers as pigs. this was a contest-winning painting and earned the spot on the capitol wall. congress member hunter unscrewed it from the wall and took an back friday. helping us to sort all of this out today is ellis henican. there is so much going on.

2:38 am
issues. narrow their options going forward. if you accuse someone of something, you hope when they come to office, maybe they try to convince you they aren't that way. a lot of this stuff echos well into the trump administration. >> it is interesting how the democrats react. cory booker standing up and maybe this is trying to rise above the mass of democrats who lost. what is the leadership going forward and the role of the depositi democrats going forward? will they sit back? the world view of rex tillerson and betsy devos? it is different from the mainstream. >> most democrats understand that donald trump won. exactly how that opposition gets formed is a subject of great debate in the democratic party. do you want to follow the mitch mcconnell approach that says let's fight on every single
2:39 am
thing. make sure he doesn't accomplish anything. or say as wrong as he is doing stuff we kind of like that is not so bad, maybe we can agree. >> bernie sanders talked about this last night. doing a town hall with chris cuomo. how we should treatme republica going forward. >> media likes to jump two months in advance. let's play it one day at a time. i think the republicans treated president obama shame fully and outrageously. then expect we will do the right thing? maybe, maybe not. we'll see. >> as with joe biden, there are democrats who are thinking, oh, what might have been. >> can i ask about jared kushner? going to the white house as senior advisor. does it violate the nepotism laws? his lawyer thinks it does not. she thinks there are other
2:40 am
arguments to be made. my question to you is reading the papers it morninthis mornine democrats like bill de blasio praising jared kushner. he is a guy we can work within the white house. >> the bar is different. john, it is always dicey when you bring the kids to work and you expect them to do something once you get there. there will be natural discomfort about this. i have to tell you, i feel the same way. compared to some of the people whose names are floating around. kushner is not that terrible. >> you look at the role in the trump campaign. he was a steady hand. you read the press release from the transition team. they talk about his adaptability and keen ability to work with everybody and see the long game. i think they really think he is someone with a great political mind.
2:41 am
>> i think rex tillerson is benefitting from the same analysis. you may not like his views on russia. maybe he is conflicted on the state sponsors of terrorism. compared to others, he is someone you can do by his witus with. >> i would like to see the confirmation hearings. he is positioning the company away from climate change. >> america gets to meet him tomorrow. thank you, ellis. some of the biggest names in washington met for two hours last night over italian food and taxes. paul ryan hosting a group of trump team members. reince priebus, jared kushner and gary cohen. steve bannon. that is a who's who of the power players in d.c. that is where the decisions get made. the group focused on taxes and infrastructure and obamacare. no word on which they will push
2:42 am
through congress. this is the first step in merging two plans. the tax plan on the campaign trail and the republican plan called a better way. there are differences. from business tax rates to deductions and credits. i'm telling you right now, that is the most important thing today for corporate america. they are watching what that group of people with paul ryan and the committee is doing with the border adjustment tax to change how imports and exports are taxed. trump threatened tariffs which protecting u.s. manufactures. paul ryan and others think it could be a better way to disincentivize companies from putting jobs overseas and not raise prices on consumers. that over italian food last night. the key players. >> tax reform may be something they find more common ground on. maybe easier for them to hammer that out. david stares down goliath.
