3:00 am
the white house is definitely seeking separation between the white house and his team when it comes to russia and the campaign. >> it's very clear what vladimir putin's objectives are. in many cases they are unacceptable to us. >> i should not be involved in investigating a campaign i have a role in. >> mike pence was doing the same thing i was criticizing hillary for. >> there's no comparison between hillary clinton having a private server. >> you're going to run your own business and make a lot of money, right?
3:01 am
but don't run for politics after do you. a little bit of humor here. i'm christi paul. we're so glad to have you. look who decided to get up early. >> i'm martin savidge. donald trump may be in sunny florida but he has clouds hanging over his administration. >> could he be working on that new travel ban he proposed last week or will he head back to court with it? overnight the white house getting more time, it seems, to decide whether to fight last month's lawsuit. we have a stunning dhs headline. they say it's to fight trafficking. we're learning about embattled attorney general jeff sessions. will he amend his testimony monday? that's expected. all of this as the web between
3:02 am
campaign aides and russia gets messier. >> we want to get to athena jones. she's in palm beach with the president. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the president wants conversation to be about his visit to parochial school in orlando, school choice. and on other promises, campaign promises he feels he is keeping. instead the conversation and the headlines in washington are all focused on this question of his aides and their contacts with russian officials. >> beautiful class. >> reporter: president trump discussing school choice and having a light-heart moment with snunts orlando. >> so you want your own business and you're going to make a lot of money, right? but don't run for politics after you do. >> reporter: before heading to his mar-a-lago resort, leaving behind a firestorm with aides and their contacts with russian
3:03 am
officials during the campaign. >> i should not be involved investigating a campaign i had a role in. >> reporter: his attorney general jeff sessions admitting to meeting with russian ambassador sergey kislyak and not confirming it during his confirmation hearing. trump is standing by him. >> do you still have confidence in the attorney general? >> total. >> reporter: the president releasing a statement saying sessions could have stated his response more accurately, but it was clearly not intentional. accusing democrats of a total witch hunt. tweeting photos of senate minority leader chuck schumer with russia's president vladimir putin in 2003, calling schumer a total hypocrite, and of nancy pelosi with the russian ambassador in 2010, demanding an investigation. schumer responding saying he would happily talk re my conversation and putin.
3:04 am
took place in full view of press and public under oath. would you do the same? some argue he should reappear before the judiciary committee. >> i want to know why he falsely denied that meeting. >> reporter: more trump advisers are under scrutiny for meeting with a russian ambassador. jared kushner, the president's son-in-law, and ousted security adviser michael flynn sat down with kislyak at trump tower for a ten-minute introductory meeting according to a senior official. several trump security advisers met with kislyak in july. >> you're not going to deny you talked with him in cleveland? >> i do not know that. >> and gordon saying it was just about building a better relationship between u.s. and russia, not about the campaign. >> i spoke to kislyak in cleveland but i talked to dozens
3:05 am
of other ambassadors as well. >> reporter: meanwhile, vice president pence is facing scrutiny for his use of a private e-mail account using his regular e-mail for state business after criticizing hillary clinton's server use. >> we recommend the fbi reopen the case in america because here in america no one is above the law. >> reporter: a comparison pence diss dismissed during a visit to wisconsin. >> there's no comparison at all between hillary clinton using a server, classified information, destroying e-mails when requested. >> reporter: the white house is calling this an apples and oranges comparison when it comes to the private e-mail account and private server. one thing we're waiting for is the administration's new travel ban. it had been expected to be announced this week, but with this week now coming to a close, the white house says they don't have an announcement on the ban yet.
3:06 am
a spokes woman saying, quote, we'll let you know when we're ready to roll that out. martin, christi. >> thanks very much. we have a lot to talk about here, so we have just the people to talk about it with. joining me now, cnn political reporter tom and errol lewis. welcome to both of you. jeff sessions says he will amend his testimony on monday. that's expected. he will not be asked to testify again before the committee. that's despite loud cries from democrats, to face questioning once again. the right move? is it the right move? why not face the committee again? otherwise you're just going to have this back and forth? >> well, jeff sessions knows as a long-time member of the senate that his democratic colleagues would like nothing better than to get him under the hot seat and essentially torture him and take him back through his prior inconsistent testimony, ask him why he didn't tell the truth,
3:07 am
why he wasn't more accurate and forthcoming the first time around. from the point of view of jeff sessions to clarify matters, it's simply better to do it in written testimony. the fact, martin, some democrats have been calling for his resignation, others have been throwing the "p" word around, perjury, as if he deliberately misled them under oath, means he has to be very, very careful. it's probably better for everybody that he simply make as clear as he can what happened and what the truth is in writing. >> in other words, stick with the paper and not the messy possibility of testifying. tom, sessions actually went farther than we're hearing the president wanted him to by recusing himself. president trump calls this a witch hunt. this is from the same guy who just told the world he wanted to see president obama's birth certificate. we remember all that. so, what's going on here? >> i think sessions made the
3:08 am
right move politically. don't know if trump wanted him to. he took the air out of the balloon at the end of the day by recusing himself. >> what does that really mean? he's still in the post. he would still be able to oversee. distant is he really? >> that's the question some senate domes are raising right now. look, technically, formally, it gets kicked down to the deputy attorney general over there, who would be handling this, and senate democrats, as you hint at there, are skeptical he is formally removed. they still want an independent investigation into this special counsel, special prosecutor, something not even -- not even in the radius of sessions at all. >> errol, donald trump said two weeks ago, quote, i had nothing
3:09 am
to do with russia and to the best of his knowledge no person he deals with, yet of course we're seeing more and more disclosures of more and more names coming from his administration who apparently sat down with the russian ambassador here. again, a president who criticizes this network, others, of fake news and yet it appears he doesn't have things straight at all either. >> to say the least. it's been great reporting by cnn, washington post and other news outlets that even brought any of this to light. you know, you have to watch when the president is using these words, you know, if you parse it a little bit, yeah, maybe he didn't have personal financial dealings with russia, the country, but he's had 30 years worth of dealings with russian oligarchs, all of whom are close to russia and putin's regime. he he needs to come out about it. we have public records of him and his son saying the business organization has minced ties
3:10 am
with russia and there's all this money coming in. we know he takes rent payments from powerful russian interests. that whole question about the emoluments clause and whether or not directly or indirectly is he gets profits from the russian government or people close to the russian government? all of these are huge questions that have never been touched. every time the president tweets about this and tries to sort of throw people off the trail or act as if everybody does it and the democrats are doing the same thing, he's really inviting more trouble and more inquiries into what he and his family and his administration have been up to. >> tom, i've got to ask you this about the vice president. he says there is no comparison between his private e-mail use and that of hillary clinton's. do you think that's really true, to say there's no comparison? >> well, there's a clear comparison, which is they were both using private e-mails for public work. now, you know there are degrees of it. she was using it for state
3:11 am
department work and he's using it while governor of indiana. this goes to the political peril when you do things like this. on the campaign trail his attacks on her were a major piece. you think that's the trump strategy but it opens him up to questions like this. he used that aol e-mail account throughout his entire term in office in indiana. there's a lot more e-mails we need to see from there. >> do we believe it or is there anything to suggest there's an illegality here? >> it's not against the law in indiana to do that. actually, the previous governor, mitch daniels, did that as well. it's not illegal in indiana. it's more a question of ethics and transparency in this case. >> yeah, a question whether this is some kind of political h
3:12 am
hipocasy. thank you. we'll see you later. the department of homeland security is eyeing a controversial new immigration plan. taking children from their parents at the mexican border. why a senior dhs official says the plan keeps children from being exploited. plus, we could be just a few days away from some of the first votes on the future of obamacare. but if they can't get their party on board, how are republicans going to repeal and replace? and an american medic group volunteered to travel to mosul, iraq, to treat fighters injured in the bloody battle to regain control of that city. >> i mean, that's a critical patient. first thing he said was, i don't want to die. i want to be able to go fight again.

let me make you a promise. the obamacare nightmare is about to end. vice president mike pence is on a mission to reassure the public that a new health care plan is coming and coming soon. but members of his own party are questioning if the gop even really has a plan ready to go. >> senator rand paul marched through the capitol this week demanding to see a draft he says is being kept in hiding. house speaker paul ryan addressed that concern last night. >> this bill's not being written in my office like harry reid's office in 2009. this bill is being written by the committees that are in charge of health care, which is the regular order of process. this bill will go through the committee process, then the floor of congress, under what we
3:18 am
call regular order. that's precisely the most transparent and normal way of doing business, which is the opposite of what the democrats did when they crammed obamacare through. >> so, just how will republicans find a way to get everybody on board? phil mattingly has more from capitol hill. >> so, it's about health care right out of the gate. >> reporter: the trump administration and speaker paul ryan jointly launching the opening salvo to launch the repeal of obamacare. >> we have an incredible team literally every day around the clock and putting finishing touches on our plan even as this weekend rolls out. >> reporter: their appearance in ryan's hometown of janesville, wisconsin, coming amid outcry from conservatives. repeal and replace over obamacare took a bizarre turn as
3:19 am
senator rand paul, opposed to ryan's proposal -- >> we're already told by many people in washington, take it or leave it. the house is going to send something over and you either take it or leave it. i can tell you right now conservatives are inclined to leave it. >> reporter: led reporters through staff in the capitol building in a very public search of the house committee's draft bill. >> this is being presented as if this were an national secret. >> reporter: that was an attack echoed by frustrated democrats. >> republicans are hiding their draft of aca repeal bill in a basement room. >> reporter: they were quick to note the irony, the charges levied against their party when the affordable care act was considered in 2009. >> look at how this bill was written? can you say it was done openly? with transparency and accountability? without back room deals and struck behind closed doors, hidden from the people? hell no you can't!
3:20 am
>> reporter: paul stunt designed to undercut the cautious behind the scenes effort by the gop to get their own members in line. it drew an immediate backlash from house gop aides. one called the effort ridiculous, absurd and an absolute circus, but paul isn't alone in his policy concerns about the bill. from proposed tax credits to ease the cost of plans to medicaid reforms, no shortage of thorny and potentially lethal issues remain imbedded in the process. the window to get something done, that's only closing. house leader, sources say, telling their members in a closed door meeting this week they want to vote on their plan by the end of this month. >> we expect in a matter of days you're going to begin to see a very brisk pace of legislative activity. we're going to repeal and replace obamacare. we're going to do it at the same time. >> this is an interesting moment if you pay attention to the last six, seven years, how many times have people campaigned on the
3:21 am
repeal and replace issue. the action happens now. this is everything they've been mrenging to do but it's real between conservatives, moderates, inside the party. it's important to note, legislative action is happening, it needs to happen quickly. there's a finite amount of time republicans have to start moving this through. a packed legislative calendar. president trump has a number of enormous initiatives he wants to move. this is health care's time, health care's window. that's why you see republicans working publicly and privately behind the scenes to try and set up the conditions to make this work. that said, there's no secret there are very real splits inside the republican party right now about the direction forward. that's why what we saw, the public display by speaker and executive branch, vice president pence, secretary price, they have to push it across the finish line, get everybody across the line through the

time to decide whether they will fight the class-action lawsuit. there's outrage over the proposal to homeland security that would potentially separate children from parents illegally crossing the u.s./mexico border. a senior dhs official tells cnn, quote, we're trying to find the way to deter children in illegal immigration. we're seeing kids essentially kidnapped and used to get here and stay. let's bring in paul and errol, both back, thank you both so much for being here. tom, the first thing that comes to mind is how would border patrol agents be able to determine whether a child is with a parent or with a smuggler? >> well, this is interesting. you know, what they're going to do theoretically here, if they do follow through with this, is actually maybe look for some family in the country already.
3:28 am
check what records they have available. you know, kind of the bigger question is, what do you do with the kids if you do separate them? and, you know, that's very interesting. does seem, you know, they would either try to put them in child protective services or try to find family here already if they try to separate them at the border. >> errol, i know recently said he wants to keep families together. let's listen to something he said a short while ago. >> we're going to show great heart. daca is a very, very difficult subject for me, i will tell you. to me it's one of the most difficult subjects i have. you have these incredible kids in many cases, not in all cases. in some cases they're having daca and they're gang members and drug dealers, too. >> but he had said he wanted to keep some of these families together, which would contradict this very proposal. do we know if president supports
3:29 am
this element? >> well, i think we've got a couple things going on here. one thing that's important to keep in is that wanting to separate parents from children at the border is not a matter of wanting to stop trafficking. it's also wanting to get around a ninth circuit ruling from a few months ago that said children cannot be detained indefinitely at the border. if you want to have tough border control, if you have to let the kids go, you generally would have to let the parents go with them and you go back to what critics of this policy call catch and release. which means you will pretty much be allowed to leave detention and go somewhere in the united states, which some people vanish into the country and you have a porous border. that's what the trump administration is trying to get around. they know the optics are awful of separating parents from kids, but they're sort of stuck with a
3:30 am
very tough decision they have to make. >> tom, do we know how prevalent it is when they talk about, quote, we're seeing kids essentially kidnapped and used to get here and stay here, do we know how prevalent that scenario is or parents paying smugglers to get their kids into the country? >> well, again, i mean, this is -- based on our reporting and what dhs officials have told us is that this is a problem, this does happen, and this is one of the reasons they're looking at it. what errol brought up, you can't avoid that. the other part of this is the courts -- the courts have laid out what the parameters are here. and the executive has to operate within that, at least until maybe the supreme court says otherwise. so, i'm sure both nings are in play here. dhs does tell us this is an issue and this does happen. >> it does bring up the question
3:31 am
about who is targeted by this crackdown. earlier this week there was a pair of salvadorian immigrants arrested in houston. they're charged with kidnapping, part of an ms-13 gang and they're illegal immigrants. at the same time you look at that -- we have video of them in court, laughing and smiling once they were detained. they are still being held on 0 $300,000 bond. you couple that with the father in pasadena who was arrested dropping off his daughter in school. we can listen here quickly to part of that. ♪ [ crying ]
3:32 am
>> you can hear that young girl crying as she watches her father be arrested. i believe i said they -- they arrested him because he had a dui from seven years earlier. when you look at these two case, it asks who are they targeting and spending money on? >> the country -- the administration is caught in a bit of a dilemma here. most. removals, and i think this is a continuation of the obama policy, are going to be really bad people who are clearly violent criminals and so forth, have valid removal orders already in place, so forth. the media is going to focus on -- you know, it's not cnn and it's not msnbc, it's going to be local stations around the country focusing on the exception to the rule, the heartbreaking case. the instance where someone

appears to be relatively harmless is now seeing their family split apart. it's going to generate an enormous amount of ill will for a policy that, frankly, won't be all that different from what obama was carrying out. >> we'll talk to you again. thanks so much. >> thanks. 30 air strikes in 48 hours. al qaeda, yemen, is getting hit hard by the u.s. we'll have a report on how these strikes fit into a larger plan to fight that terrorist group. a dozens civilians may have suffered a chemical weapons attack in mosul. the latest from the hospital where they're being treated right now. you can't predict the market. but through good times and bad... ...at t. rowe price... ...we've helped our investors stay confident for over 75 years. call us or your advisor. t. rowe price. invest with confidence.

3:38 am
infrastructure, heavy weapons systems and the likes. and there was at least one what they call high value target, potential terrorist leader. we're joined by cnn international correspondent ian lee. what's all the focus on yemen? >> reporter: al qaeda in the arabian pen insue law, aqap, as they're know, is the most capable branch of terrorist organization. one of their specialties is creating bombs without metallic components so they're invisible to metal detectors and they try to get these on airplanes. that's what makes this branch of al qaeda so dangerous. so, you do have these more than 30 air strikes take place. they're targeting militants, targeting their equipment, weapons as well as safe houses to try, as one pentagon official says, keep the pressure on the organization. these air strikes took place in the southern central part of the country. this is an area where al qaeda
3:39 am
has been able to flourish, taking advantage of the security vacuum that has been created during the war. right now it's uncertain exactly what affect these air strikes will have on al qaeda. to give you a bit of comparison in 2016, according to monitoring groups, the united states carried out 38 such strikes. well, we're only a few months into 2017 and it looks like they're about at that number, martin. >> ian lee, i'm sorry for the pause there. joining us now from cairo. thank you very much. a dozen civilians may have been hit by a chemical weapons attack in mosul, iraq, this week. this is believed to be the first time they've been used in the city since the start of the mosul offensive. iraqi forces are still fighting isis, of course, for control of that city. cnn senior international correspondent ben wedeman has just returned from the hospital. he joins us live from erbil,
3:40 am
iraq. ben, help us understand how these people are suffering. i mean, what did you see? >> reporter: well, what we saw was some of the victims of this attack, which we understand occurred on this past wednesday in eastern mosul. eastern mosul, of course, has been liberated by iraqi forces. but we did hear earlier in the week about a mortar that landed in the eastern part of the city in one neighborhood. eyewitnesss and people at the hospital tell us that when -- it was a rocket that landed, actually, in that neighborhood and they smelled something very strange. there were 12 people admitted to the hospital here in erbil from this incident over a several days, in fact. seven of them have been documented to have been exposed to a blistering chemical agent. now, we did speak to the director of the hospital who told us that he had been
3:41 am
informed by american military medics just outside of mosul that it was mustard gas. now, the victims, one is a young boy 11 years old. he does not -- he apparently is in critical condition. his condition complicated by the fact that he received a concussion as a result of this missile attack. now, as iraqi authorities and the u.s. military are trying to get more information on this incident, the battle for west mosul continues. as we found earlier this, we're americans are very close to the front lines providing critical medical support. >> you got 100 tram adoll -- >> reporter: an iraqi soldiers lies in shock and pain. >> wet first. >> reporter: medics at this
3:42 am
front-line clinic struggle to stabilize him. >> so, we're going to get him on that same helicopter? but, listen, it might not -- he's going to call me back. he might not be able to get out of here for 30 minutes. >> reporter: this volunteer group, new york city medics, is working a ten-minute drive in the battle for western mosul. >> go ahead. grab it. >> reporter: most have never been in a war zone. they treated only one civilian while we were there. a little girl with a tooth ache. her family fled mosul earlier that morning. the rest were so will ders, many with multiple wounds. jeff evans normally works in boulder, colorado. >> that guy had a gunshot wound right under his arm, like right below his armpit. and i think he actually escaped from it penetrating his lung. so, i think it bounced down into his gut.
3:43 am
that's a critical patient. first thing he said was, i don't want to die. i just want -- i want to be able to fight again. >> reporter: some of the injured here are coming straight from the battlefield. >> this is shrapnel. >> reporter: here they check their wounds. >> i'm green here, too. >> reporter: change their bandages. and send them onto the nearest hospital. the team comes from all over the united states. >> that's all right. sorry. >> put a little water on it. >> okay. >> reporter: the head doctor from germany. jeff left behind his wife and 11-year-old son to come here. >> i think as a father and as a husband, that the onus is on me to live through example and to do things that show my son how important it is to live in a way, a selfless life. >> reporter: a selfless life,
3:44 am
saving lives, a very long way from home. as the battle for west mosul rages, groups like that will have to deal with ever greater numbers of wounded. of course, regarding that gas attack in mosul, the worry is, of course, it was isis and there may be more of that to come. christi? >> no doubt about it. certainly new concerns there then if it's believed isis has been able to produce some sort of chemical weapons attack. want to ask you quickly, too, ben, before you go, what are you seeing in terms of, as we're understanding, these -- this mass exodus out of that area? >> reporter: so far since the offensive began, we see almost 50,000 people have fled the city. of course, they're fleeing under the most difficult of conditions. we were out there very close to where they were fleeing from. what we saw was that many of
3:45 am
them were traumatized because they had come under fire from sis mortars, from snipers. some people were telling us they have eaten no more than bread and water the last month, so they're arriving exhausted, traumatized, hungry. just desperate for reaching some sort of safe ground. christi? >> all right. ben wedeman, such strong stories out of there this morning. we so appreciate you bringing them to us. thank you. back in a moment. this is one gorgeous truck. special edition. oh, did i say there's only one special edition? because, actually there's five. ooohh!! aaaahh!! uh! hooooly mackerel. wow. nice. strength and style. it's truck month. get 0% financing for 60 months plus find your tag and get $5500 on select chevy silverado pick-ups when you finance with gm financial. find new roads at your local chevy dealer.
