president obama wire tapping him. now the fbi asking the justice department to refute the claim that is according to two sources with knowledge of the situation. the fbi seeking deny because it implies the bureau may have broken the law by obeying president obama's order. so far, no comment. >> president trump asking congress to investigate the wire tapping claim. a claim he made with no evidence. it is getting a mixed response. house chairman devin nunes says he will look into the matter in the committee. other republicans pushing back and former national intelligence chief james clapper telling nbc it did not happen. >> there was no such wire tap activity mounted against the president-elect at the time or
candidate or campaign. >> if the fbi had surveillance order, would that be information you would know? >> yes. i would know that. something like this, absolutely. >> more now from white house correspondent athena jones. she is covering the president from west palm beach, florida. >> reporter: the president spent the weekend in mar-a-lago. it was a series of tweets launched before sunrise that dominated the headlines. in the tweets, president trump without offering evidence accused president obama of having his quote wires tapped in trump tower. those explosive allegations prompting a vigorous denial from president obama and repeated calls to provide evidence to back up his claims. rather than providing that evidence, the white house is
calling on congressional committees that are investigating the russian activity and ties between trump aides and russian officials. those committees are asked to look into quote whether executive branch powers were abused in 2016. now democrats and republicans are asking what the president is basing accusations on. >> i'm not sure what it is he is talking about. perhaps the president has information not yet able to us or the public. if it is true, we will find out. if it isn't, he will have to explain. >> the president has called for congressional investigations into the allegations he made starting yesterday morning. i would expect that he is going to want to provide our committee with any evidence that he has. >> reporter: so there you have a republican saying she expects the president to provide evidence backing up his claims if there is any. this comes as we learn late
sunday night that the fbi asked the justice department on saturday to refute the president's assertion that president obama had ordered wire tapping. christine. dave. >> athena jones in west palm beach. let's discuss this with senior media correspondent brian stelter and greg valliere. thanks both of you. let's start with you, brian. walk me through the evidence trail here of where the president got this idea. we are talking about a web site on a radio show and another web site and in the president's brain and on twitter. >> this seems to start on thursday. an idea for a while that president obama is doing whatever he can do to undermine new president trump. mark levine took this to a new level. saying a silent issue.
then rush limbaugh and breitbart. rece published a story and circulated in the west wing. according to jeff zeleny, this infuriated president trump. we saw him tweet about it. he said he just found on about the theory and shared it on twitter. the best evidence shows this was coming from mark levine and breitbart. they have seucceeded. saying this is all obama's fault. >> this is a president who derides media reports using anonymous sources. this man based on anonymous sources. greg, it is one thing how big a story it is if it is true. what about if it is false? >> i'm not sure it damages him with his base. his base is in a different
universe. he can make a case, guys, that the obama administration intelligence community is out to get him. i think you may not believe it, but that is a case that he can make. frankly, i think the bigger problem for him is this is still another distraction. we are getting into spring now. we have to start talking about obamacare and tax reform and all of these issues that he wants to get done. he keeps stepping on his message and all of these big issues keep getting moved. >> greg, i'm glad you bring that up. in a way, his team saying look at what we accomplished. we are doing more to transform the economy. president trump himself changed the story line. we would talk today about the sessions stuff could have petered out eventually. maybe a little kate mckinnon on snl. the president himself has
stepped on that message. >> christine, today we would talk about the new immigration rules and obamacare fight reaching a crescendo in the house. all of these are obscured by the charges he made over the weekend. >> to be fair, we are trying to talk about those things. these things matter to people and business. >> to be fair, former bush attorney general says he thinks he is right. there was surveillance conducted at the behest of the attorney general. who is speaking for the president ins terms of showing the evidence where this came from? >> president trump is declassifier in cheechief. instead, sean spicer says there will be no comment from the white house. that is not quite true. some aides were tweeting about this. criticizing the media. spicer will not have an on-camera briefing today.
we won't see him answer questions from reporters. he will take questions off camera. not the same impact. i wonder if he is trying to avoid addressing this on camera. >> the last on-camera white house response we basically have is sara huckabee sanders. this is how she responded on cbcb abc. >> if this is accurate, this is the biggest over -- >> the president of the united states is accusing the former president of wire tapping him. >> i think this is again -- if this happened -- >> if, if, if. >> i agree. >> why is the president saying it did happen? >> i think he is going off information he is saying has led him to believe this is a very real potential. >> if i had a dollar for every time i heard somebody say the president believes this to be true or some iteration of that. when you are the leader of the
free world and potentially have to lead the world in international crisis, how do you trust the information? >> the president has the ability to be the most informed person in the world. he has the agencies at his disposal. fbi and nsa and cia. when he turns to breitbart or mark levine's radio show. or the most credible sources rather than government information, it certainly leaves a lot of people confused and caused weekend of chaos. you have "the washington post" saying 17 sources seething at the cable news coverage. this is the disarray in the white house. caused by his own tweets. >> greg, we have three senators on the intelligence committee saying there is no evidence. what is the next move?
the diepartment of jusof justin? justice? >> i think one of the key stories is how many defect? a lot more like marco rubio feel this guy is becoming a political liability. we are not there yet. i do think that is the next big story? >> greg, obamacare. we are looking for overhaul this week. can the president and paul ryan hold the conservatives together? that is the other big story. >> he needs to inject himself into the debate. it could stall out in the house despite paul ryan. a lot of conservatives don't like the refundable tax credits. i think trump has to get involved. does he have that time? we hear stories who goes next? priebus? spicer? there is all this intrigue within the white house. i think that will preclude trump from playing a bill role on
health reform. >> and trump personality. this is about a 70-year-old guy who seems to be under attack and paranoid about all this and frustrated by the leaks. all of that must be overwhelming and it is impacting the aides. >> you cannot afford another big shuffle. come back in 20 minutes. we'll talk about it more. is today the day we finally see the new travel ban from the white house? signs point to yes. we are live in washington with what it all means next. make sure the germs they bring home don't stick around. use clorox disinfecting products. because no one kills germs better than clorox. but shouldn't it be about firsts?d in zeros. and seconds... how about adding a third? we think there's a bajillion ways to measure success.

substantially revised order. cnn's justice reporter laura jarrett has more from washington this morning. laura, is there an update on timing or how will the version of the eo as they are known be different from the first? >> reporter: christine, we expect to see the new executive order as early as today. we expect to see the green card holders and those with existing visas excluded. we heard several top members of the cabinet wanted iraq removed from the list of the previously banned countries. that is something to watch for as well. christine, we expect to see the old order revoked. despite the issues we heard about keeping the old one on a dual track with the new one. >> the heart of this, laura, how will the delays for the new order undermine the rational it is imperative to national
security? >> reporter: this is interesting, dave. to the extent the administration took over a month to rewrite the travel ban, no judge would blame them. if they delayed this rollout for some political reason connected to the speech or otherwise, that could come back to bite them the minute the government lawyers use emergency in court. >> and various lawsuits with the first executive order. where does those suits stand? >> reporter: lawyers at the justice department tried to get the active cases put on hold rewashir reworking the order. several judges said no. the question is what happens when the new executive order comes down? do they start over or do they argue this is just like the old one? christine. dave. >> thank you, laura. fun is not the word.

the united states strongly condemning the latest ballistic missile by north korea. warning it will defend itself and use the range of abilities at its disposal against a growing threat. the north koreans test firing four ballistic missiles into the sea of japan last night. three landing within 200 miles of japan's coast. let's get the latest from cnn's paula hancocks in seoul, south korea this morning. good morning. important how this launch differs from those in the recent
past. >> reporter: dave, what we know from the four missiles this morning, according to the u.s. and south korea is they went about 600 miles in distance. they also went as high as 160 miles plus. that shows the range is much further. ago according to one official. reports suggest this is an intermediate missile. we have not had confirmation yet. washington and seoul and tokyo poring over the data. we have seen the range before. not recently. we have seen some relative restraint from north korea before the u.s. election with one previous missile a few weeks ago. that again was a missile that a to experts. it was harder to track.
this is the concern certainly in south korea as well. north korea is learning something each time it tests. there was a national security council meeting monday morning. the acting president in south korea saying the north korean president acting in defiancdefi. the regime would be appallinapp. the joint u.s. and south korea military drills are defensive and normal in nature. every year, pyongyang is angered by them and reacts this way. >> paula, thank you. left with strong condemnation. u.s. backed iraqi forces making a big push to recapture mosul. they are closing in on the old city near the main government complex. tens of thousands of sicivilian fleeing the area. over 400,000 people could be

facing a challenge as friend and foe alike over the tweet storm that president obama had president trump wire tapped. everyone in the position to know has so far denied. now the fbi itself asking the justice department, the fbi asking the justice department to refute the claim from president trump. a rare move. according to two sources. the claim implying the bureau may have broken the law by obeying the president obama order. no comment so far from the justice department. president trump asking congress to investigate the baseless wire tapping claim. and house chairman devin nunes will look into the party inmatt part of the russian campaign
accusatio accusations. and we have james clapper telling nbc it is not happened. >> no such wire tap activity mounted against the president-elect at the time or candidate or against his campaign. >> if the fbi, had advice of court order, would that be information you would know? >> yes. >> you would be told? >> i would know that. yes. something like this, absolutely. >> more now from athena jones covering the president in florida. >> reporter: good morning, christine and dave. the president spent the weekend in florida. the fourth trip to the mar-a-lago. >> that's what we call a hiccup in television production.
>> john oliver did it. >> i want to go to greg valliere. he is a political economist. greg, this sounds like a president who stepped on his own message. he could be talking about revised travel warning. he could be talking about the legislative agenda. we are talking about the president of the united states with the most stunning accusation. >> what a difference a week makes in politics. last tuesday and wednesday, everyone talking about the speech which was very delivered and received. now that is a distant memory. it is all about who may leave the white house. it is all about unsubstantiated issues. there are big policy issues. health care, tax reform, budget. all of these things will get
obscured by the new allegations. >> greg, does he lose leadership capital? he has to be a leader with paul ryan. does he lose political capital? >> that is a good point. i always thought political capital is the factor in the town. when you lose it, it is harder to get stuff down. here is the litmus test? can he inject lihimself in the vote? i think the president has to get involved. you have to ask the question after the weekend does he have the clout to make a difference? >> tough turn. joining us to discuss is senior media correspondent brian stelter. three u.s. senators. rub rubio, cotton and collins saying no wire tapping. >> rubio seemed confused when asked about this yesterday.
this may be a conspiracy theory. >> as most conspiracy theories have 1% kernel. >> this stemmed in part from news reports months ago that perhaps a few of trump associates were targets of investigations involving their ties to russia. were there orders to target those individuals in trump's orbit? that was the reporting from last fall. never confirmed. from those reports months ago, comes this theory from mark levine. saying a silent coup in the works. these are state tactics by obama and his people to undermine president trump. that circulates in the west wing and saturday morning, we get the president's tweet storm. >> and nancy pelosi, house leader, who said it is auth
authoritarian. >> i would describe it as sowing confusion. democrats or republicans. when you are in power and people are confused, you benefit from that. trump is muddy in the waters. >> it fits the steve bannon world view. >> we are looking at the opinion piece in the post. this crystalizes. if he is not wire tapped, he has a false charge. if there is surveillance on him, on what grounds? every time the relationship with the apparatus and moscow comes up, he moves to unleash attacks. this under scores how urgent it is to get to the bottom of the story. greg, the markets and republicans have been very happy with trump so far. even knowing he can tweet
conspiracy theories. does this move the needle in the other direction? >> maybe not yet. i would say, christine, for all of the viewers who are investors, the fundamentals are good. economy is getting better. the labor market is healing. janet yellen will have to raise rates, but that is factored into the market. however, if this story drags on and on and on, the markets will worry the trump agenda is in trouble. >> some suggest and mike mukasey suggests there was a wire tap done and maybe it came from the ag. some feel there was a source of wire tapping. what are the public statements from the trump administration saying about the evidence?
sara huckabee sanders out there. >> this reminds me of the nursery school behavior of i know you are, but what am i. we have seen claims. president trump on twitter, saying obama is like nixon. that say claim made against the trump administration. we saw sara huckabee sanders say this is the biggest scandal ever. what are people saying about russia? an attack on democracy. they take the language that is used against trump and apply it against obama. that is working in right wing media. you look at the blogs this morning. right wing talk radio over the weekend. you are hearing people buy into the idea that this is obama's fault. some of what sara huckabee has said on sunday is permeatinperm. >> brian, how ticked off is the president? he is mad not about this, but
about the sessions stuff. >> one of his friends a member of mar-a-lago. spent time with him on saturday. he said trump hasn't been this angry in a long time. he is confident obama is wire tapping him. it will be proven some day. >> trump believes he was tapped by obama? >> absolutely. it will be proven some day. there were some citing anonymous sources describing tension in the white house. some pointing at reince priebus others. >> important to remember, something by the end of march will be gone. i think there will be a shake-up. >> fearless forecast by greg. one of his fearless forecasts is don't under estimate donald trump.
the white house possibly getting a chance to change the narrative today as aides prepare to announce the travel ban. we had false starts on this before. we are told as early as today is coming. the order delayed in an effort to keep the focus on good press for the address to congress by the president. cnn justice reporter laura jarrett has more from washington. is there an update on timing and how does this version differ from the first? >> reporter: we expect to see the executive order rolled out as soon as today, dave. the changes are the green card holders and those with existing
visas. we heard several top members of the cabinet wanted iraq removed from the list of banned countries. that will be something to watch. finally, dave, we expect to see the old executive order officially revoked. despite the fact we heard from the administration previously about keeping the old one on a dual track with the new one. >> how might the delays we have seen, laura, for the new executive order, how will that undermine the government's rationale it is imperative to national security? >> reporter: it will be interesting to watch it play out in court. to the extent the administration took over a month to rewrite the travel ban to comply with the court order, no judge will blame them for trying to get it right. if they delayed it for a political reason, that could come back to bite them. the minute the government starts using the words emergency in
court. >> so what about the lawsuit s regarding the first executive order? >> reporter: lawyers for the justice department tried to get the active cases on hold while they were reworking the executive order. several judges said no. those cases are barrelling ahead. the question how is what happens when the new executive order comes down? do the lawsuits start over again from scratch or do immigration lawyers try to argue this ban is just like the old one? we have to wait and see. >> keep some lawyers in business. thank you, laura. >> should have news on that later today. the new york knicks went old school for the first half of the game yesterday. >> hines ward has more in the bleacher report. >> the knicks wanted to showcase the game of basketball against the warriors. in the first half, they cut the
music, videos and special effects in the arena. all you could hear were the p.a. announcers and the bouncing of the basketball and squeaking shoes. the players and fans did not find out about it before tip-off. draymond green was not impressed. >> it was pathetic. it was ridiculous. it changed the flow of the game. it changed everything. you get used to playing a game a certain way. completely changed that. that is disrespect. you pass things in the world to make it better. computers do anything for us. it is like going back to paper. >> knicks were actually leading by one at the half. they turned the music back on in the second half. things went back to normal. 112-105. dunk city is going back to

official. nobody could stop her. nice to see you, hines. time for a look at what is coming up on "new day." chris cuomo. he's a fast guy. >> i like that her victory lap is faster than i ever moved in my life. what a crazy world. we have this lady out running the official. then you discuss this morning. the circumstances we find ourselves in. our national dialogue is consumed with discussions about russia. we keep getting into a cycle where we say, just the facts. let's figure out what's going on. then the president is usually somewhere near the root cause of another wave of speculation about what's going on with our government's relationships and russia and how it's dealing with that confusion. that's how we got into the wire tap situation.
we will talk about why the fbi director would go out of his way to get involved in the situation and ask the justice department to refute the president's claim of wire taps being used against him maybe by president obama and why this discussion goes beyond james clapper, the former head of the director of national intelligence. he says, christine and dave, why one of the warrants did not exist for that regard? how do we move past that? >> it is a lot of push back by people who said he wasn't told about domestic surveillance? >> he may be lying. that is always true. that is always true what you hear from someone could be untrue, but you have to have the there about it. otherwise it is a difficult analysis. that's where we are. we will take the ball from you
in a little while. >> i'm telling you, the president of the united states accusing his predecessor of tapping him. history. >> don't tweet when angry. don't tweet when angry. >> you know what goes with our president? he has a teflon nature of how what he says and how he is judged by his base. >> historic and stunning. chris cuomo, thank you. another mess for uber. how is the pr getting worse for uber and travis? we will get a check on cnn money stream next. saa gi th e of mind d the security just like the marines did. at one point, i did change to a different company with car insurance, and i was not happy with the customer service. we have switched back over and we feel like we're back home now. the process through usaa is so effortless, that you feel like you're a part of the family. i love that i can pass the membership to my children, and that they can be protected. we're the williams family,

united states strongly condemning the latest ballistic missile launch by north korea. state department warning the u.s. will defend itself and allies and prepared to use the range of capabilities at its disposal against a growing threat. the north koreans test firing four ballistic missiles into the sea of japan last night. three of them landing within 200 miles of japan's coast. let's get the latest from paula hancocks from seoul, south korea. what is the distinction and how is this different from previous launches we have seen? >> reporter: dave, we understand from a u.s. official that initial reports suggest these four were intermediate range missiles. we have seen these tested before, but the fact four were tested in a row, we know they flew about 600 miles. a height of 160 miles.
meaning the range is further if it was flying straight. this is a great concern for those in the region. the south koreans had a national security council meeting early on monday. the acting president said north korea is acting in defiance of the international community. the consequences of the north korea armed regime and its nuclear abilities is appalling. the military drills for japan and u.s. are routine. every year, without fail, north korea is angered. they see them as a practice to invade north korea which the u.s. and south korea deny. we often see the ballistic missile tests increasing this time of year and it appears this year is no different. dave. >> this is on the heels of
