4:02 am
and neil gorsuch takes the hot seat in a hearing to confirm him as the next supreme court justice. >> can the gop sell its health care plan to its own party in time for the key vote in congress on thursday p. house speaker ryan says it's now or never. adding to an already intense week, another intruder tried to make it into the white house overnight. >> and security is back to normal after a car drove up to the white house and the driver claiming he had a bomb, and the authorities searched the vehicle for more than four hours but found nothing. and ryan noble was on the ground last night and filed this report. >> they removed the man from the car and placed him under arrest, and we have watched as they have gone in and very methodically taken everything out of this vehicle very cautiously, and in fact they had a robot at one point go up to the vehicle in its trunk, pulling material out
4:03 am
of the vehicle, and then we saw a bomb squad technician dressed in the full gear come out and also take materials from outside of that vehicle and sift through those materials. >> this, of course, is the latest in a string of recent white house intrusions. earlier yesterday another person was arrested after jumping over a bike rack outside the white house and said he had a document to deliver, and another man was found steps to the main door carrying mace. one of the most consequence chul weeks for trump. we have phil mudd, former cia terrorism official all joining us this morning to talk more about the big week ahead. good morning. >> good morning. >> eugene, let me start with you.
4:04 am
the fbi's testimony on the russian investigation and president trump's claim on wiretapping will be clear. is director combing feeling the pressure? >> he has the desire to prove the integrity and credibility of his agency and they have operated legally and did not compromise ethics, and as president trump's tweet suggested he's expected to make it clear that there is no evidence to support the claim that president obama had intelligence agencies wiretap trump to ywer during the electi, and what they want to hear is what they have been focused on since the election. >> and a former security to
4:05 am
biden made strong claims, there are only two conclusions that could come from these hearings, and first let me play it and then i want you to give your reaction. >> one of two things is true, and either he knows it's wrong and he is lying about a national security issue in which case it will be hard to trust him going forward or he can't tell the difference between truth and fiction, and in a crisis that going to matter that. >> a lot of people had that kind of a thought when it comes to president trump. what is your feeling? >> i think we ought to look at it more carefully, and i am not sure it's that black and white and obviously it's a question about the president's credibility, and comey's going to be asked did you see the president's allegations, and the answer is going to be, we don't have information to support them. and the questions that will emerge spwa emerge during the day will be is there anything to suggest that
4:06 am
anybody in the trump campaign connected to the russian intelligence, and i think that's going to be tough for him to answer in open testimony, and it's going to fuzz up whether trump people are part of an intelligence investigations, and the answer is going to be yes, and if they are talking to russians, they will be in the collections of the rbi, and that doesn't mean anybody, including president obama, wiretapped trump tower and that's why it's going to get fuzzy. >> and then the change of the president here, and the way he describes putin in the past, he seems to give the russian president a lot of regard and here is trump on fox news last night, and he was describing putin as a leader and characterizing their relationship. take a listen. >> don't know him, but certainly he is a tough cookie and i don't know how he's doing for russia, we will find out one day, i
4:07 am
guess. >> so there seems to be a dramatic turn around from the way he has referred to the president before, and it's coming right before this hearing? >> yeah, tough cookie seems like an intermediate step in what might be a new way of messaging of what trump wants to do with putin, and all throughout the campaign and transition trump sounded very complimentary towards putin and saying he wanted to talk to him and have better relations, and that was a more neutral comment and not a consequence that the timing comes when we are in the middle of the discussions about what if anybody was surveilled by the intelligence agencies, and that doesn't help him square the circle of directly accusing president obama of spying on him and what we may or may not find
4:08 am
out in the hearings coming up this week, and as phil said, it's more complicated than no, nothing was going on, but unless judge andrew napolitano from fox that nobody else knows, it's going to be hard for what we hear on monday to match up with the tweets. >> we will all be paying attention. thank you all very much. >> thank you. also tomorrow, president trump's pick for supreme court justice will be on the capitol hill for what is going to be an intense week of confirmation hearings. his confirmation would be a big win for the white house after this catalogue of frustrations and setbacks since president trump has taken office. >> let's talk about the state of the court right now skprbgsz sitting 4-4 in terms of the breakdown between democrats and
4:09 am
republica republicans. when we look at the seat for scalia and the dynamics gorsuch would bring, when would he be a true replacement for the scalia seat? >> he believes in the ideology scalia has in the past, and not to split partisan lines, and they have an allege split, and replacing a conservative with another conservative is not going to shift the balance of power a great deal, and they are replacing scalia for the purposes of roe v. wade. >> let's talk about some of the things that hard line conservatives take issue with when it comes to gorsuch, and a lot of that, it's around his religious views. he was raised catholic and attends a church that is openly pro gay and pro muslim, and how
4:10 am
significant do you think that will be? >> i think everybody thought it would be very significant given the fact that we were talking about one of the campaign promises donald trump made was to resraous roe v. wade, and now we are trending toward the legacy and what is presumed to be among some communities a muslim ban. the focus is tipped away from roe v. wade, and more towards the president will have enough deference from the courts that would make policies that would fridge on some of the policies, and gorsuch has been a staunch believer in religion, and hobby lobby, little sisters, all these cases involved whether or not the government could enforce these small businesses or business that had certain beliefs to have con tprtracepti
4:11 am
as part of their plan, and he said absolutely not, and i think everybody is going to look at this and say i wonder how much his religious believes, not the k orders. >> and lastly, democrats are still feeling the sting from republicans not voting on merrick garland. >> i thithis was never a matter battle over legal qualifiations, and both should be steadfast lisa poertd in terms of the their qualifications. however, this is a battle of power. and the democrats will have to decide whether or not this is
4:12 am
the battle to fight. remember, there's an aging judiciary, and president trump will probably have more than one opportunity to fill a supreme court seat and because this seat will likely not shift the ideology of the court, democrats may be better served waiting for the next seat. >> laura coates, we appreciate you being here. thank you. >> thank you. health and human secretaries, tom price, on "state of the union" with jake tapper this morning here on cnn. rex tillerson on his way back to the united states from which china. next, the important meeting he had before taking off. and china says the u.s. needs to have a quote, cooler head, when dealing with north korea. that word of advice came as north korea announced another rocket engine test. e. you wouldn't put up with an umbrella

be clear on this, folks, this is going to be a battle in washington, d.c., all right? obamacare's defenders are working hard, so we have to work harder. we're counting on florida. we need every republican in florida to support this bill and support the president's plan to repeal and replace obamacare. >> that, of course, is vice president mike pence making a last push to get republicans onboard with the new health care bill. right now more than two dozen house republicans say they are either voting no or leaning in that direction. the vice president says republican leaders are listening to concerns about the bill and making changes to things like medicaid funding. this hour, secretary of state, rex tillerson, headed back to the u.s. after meeting

4:19 am
more advanced, and this brings kim jong-un to his goal, which is a missile with a nuclear warhead capable of reaching the mainland united states, and some are saying if north korea continues its progression checked they could have that type of weapon in their possession within two years, and if you look at what it has in its arsenal, its missiles, and they have a wide range, more than 600 miles, and we are seeing more accurate missiles and missiles that used solid fuel that allows them to have much of the world, the united states, they are come into south korea as we speak and it started a few weeks ago. this is a launcher on the ground that would shoot a missile out

of the sky using sophisticated equipment, but here in beijing, the chinese government not happy about the defense system, because they fear it would render their missiles ineffective if this technology goes into south korea, and that is one thing rex tillerson addressed this weekend, and the real big conversation that needs to happen will be between president trump and president chi. there's no official date announced yet, and secretary tillerson did say the situation with north korea is reaching a very dangerous level, perhaps the most dangerous it has ever been as their weapons capabilities continue to advance. >> he also seemed to clearly indicate a military option was on the table. thank you very much. a french prosecutor says the

up and raring to go on a sunday morning at 7:26, i am christi paul. >> i am martin savidge in for victor blackwell. and the network that brings you "sesame street" is not celebrating as president trump is proposing to end-all federal funding for public broadcasting. get this, the cost of public broadcasting to the taxpayers just $1.35 per citizen per year, which does not sound like a lot, but brands like pbs are gearing
4:27 am
up for a fight, and broadcast officials have been through this before. joining us to talk about it, brian stelter, host of "reliable sources." good morning to everybody. >> patrick, let me start with you. it's not the first time that we have heard talk about cutting back here. in fact, mitt romney was saying something similar to that on the campaign trail back in 2012. let's listen. >> i am sorry, jim, i am going to stop to bps, and i like big bird and you, too, and i am not going to keep spending money on things to borrow money from china. >> how confident are you that we are going to see this kind of a fight with these significant
4:28 am
cuts? >> we are going to have a fight, and we are gearing up to do as much battle as we need to do, and with respect to governor romney's proposal of five years ago, for example, people came out of the woodwork to support public television and broadcasting, and we suspect they will do the same thing this year, and for that reason we are confident we will be able to prevail in terms of the funding fight. what we are trying to impress on people is that what the federal investment pays for is public safety and civic leadership, and the american people overwhelmingly support, including 60% of trump voters who say they would like to maintain or increase federal funding for public broadcasting. >> dan, what do you say to that? mpr, and pbs is cherished by many families as a source of
4:29 am
entertainment. why the cuts? >> we have been pushing for this for 20 years. what you get is you don't get independence, you get propaganda. look at the pbs twitter feet, since friday, half of all of their tweets have been pushing, we have government funded pbs using it's resource to push for government funding. >> it's a good thing you mention the twitter feet. i want to take a look at some of your own posts, including one that says there's no legitimate reason for government to fund left-wing media, and then the next one, there are a ton of liberal billionaires that could find change in their couches enough to fund this. my point is this is budgetary decision-making just conservative revenge or is there a real financial logic?
4:30 am
>> of course there's a financial logic, but should we be funding that is left wing, and both networks are networks that have an agenda, and back in 2011, one of the executives was found on video to be calling republicans anti-intellectu anti-intellectual, and was it neutral when they fired juan williams for ex -- >> i get you don't like the content. but what is the budgetary reasoning? where will you put the money? >> i am not putting the money anywhere. to me i would cut a lot more out of government. this is $445 million of taxpayer money that is going -- instead of going to things that, you know, basically everybody cares about, it is going to things to compete against ordinary businesses.
4:31 am
you have talk radio and news channels around the country using their own tax dollars that go to fund these outlets that turn around and compete with them with the imprim tore of the federal government. >> let me bring in brian stelter who is our media expert. he doesn't like to fund liberal media, and fit was conservative that would be okay? >> i think this is a philosophical issue that goes all the way back to the 1970s. we saw former president bush in the mid-2000s trying to defund the media, and it never has gotten through congress, and this is an interesting year because trump is an interesting guy, a different kind of president. will he be able to persuade congress to go along with the idea to defund public media. and the idea you get is the government is the foundation for the house for pbs and mpr, and
4:32 am
then it's really local stations, the smaller stations across the country with the big antenna's up in the night sky that need the government to stay on the airwaves, and as we consume more and more media via the internet we need to evaluate the role of public media, and i have an argument about whether we should give $5 million, $1 billion or zero. there's an argument to be made for more and less money, and patrick would like to see more money for public media, and it's a philosophical fight. conservatives would like to see no involvement whatsoever in public media. >> let me bring patrick back in the conversation. it true you had a lot of shots financial shot across your bow, and you knew the day of reckoning with less money was coming and do you have to face
4:33 am
that kind of future, maybe not as dramatic cut but you are not getting a lot of funding? >> we have not gotten any increases in our funding for several years, and we understand the budget imperatives of trying to bring spending under control and we have not tried to be greedy about this, and our funding has held steady for quite a few years now. the fact is that again, the american people, greatly value what we do and they understand the economics of public broadcasting, and the relatively small investment that the federal government makes and produces such benefits, not only in news but in education and in civic leadership, and the mpr and pbs are the third and fourth most trusted media in the country after economists and the bbc according to the latest research center polling that i have seen, and while my friend may not appreciate what we do,
4:34 am
the overwhelming majority of the american people do and they would like to continue to see us perform the services that we perform. >> dan, let me ask you this, and i made that kind of a side and said if it was a conservative broadcasting you would keep it on the air, and i will let you respond? is that a fair thing to say you are cutting it because of the liberal attitude you feel or if it was more conservative you would not be in favor of cutting it so much? >> government should not be sroflgd in media, 100%, flat out no, and the difference is if government was funding conservative media, you on this network and all the media people upset about it would not be on the same side, and then you would be all for cutting it. that's the difference. what you get is propaganda. if -- >> dan, i got that, and you went through that. i wanted to make clear that you are saying it doesn't matter the conservative or left leaning, but you are in favor of funding
4:35 am
by the government of the media? >> absolutely. if they are doing so well and mpr has record ratings right now, they can survive in the marketplace and they don't need the tax dollars. >> that does seem to make sense. brian, you get the final word? >> this is what it comes down to, if these stations are doing well, why do they need public funding? some advocates say they need the tax dollars to keep them on the air in smaller markets, and as we move towards the digital age where people are streaming media and watching netflix, and i watch via netflix and they are helping to pay for the pbs folks, and we are in a world that is different and it's time to re-evaluate how it works. >> thank you for a spirited but honest debate. >> thank you. how much does it cost to

this morning. president trump is spending the weekend at his florida resort, and while he is more comfortable at what he calls his winter white house, everybody is not onboard with the current arrangement as it is. >> you can see trump driving his golf cart in palm beach, and he's driving up quite a cab with his security costs, and some are starting to wonder how much it is costing to protect the first
4:42 am
family? here's cnn, sara ganim. >> we want our money back. that's what the new york city police department and palm bounty police officials are saying, asking to be reimbursed for the millions of what it cost to protect their homes. funding will be critical to insure new york city can allocate the personnel and resources that are necessary to keep the city and all of it's residents safe. mayor bill de blasio talked about this situation back in december. during the transition period from election day to inauguration day, o'neal says the cost of security trump tower and the area around it added up to $24 million, and palm county beach says they spend an estimate $60,000 in over time
4:43 am
protecting trump while he is at mar-a-la mar-a-lago, and that's what taxpayers will have to pay if the government doesn't reimburse. and trump is calling mar-a-lago the winter white house, and trump had harsh words for his predecessor predecessor's trips. >> this vacation is costing taxpayers $4 million, and during the election trump told "the hill," i would rarely leave the white house because there's so much work to be done. so far trump has spent more than one-fourth of his time in office at mar-a-lago. there are more moving parts for the secret service when it comes to the first family, and his adult children frequently travel, and his wife, melania, and their son, barron, live in new york city, a cost of
4:44 am
$146,000 a day. >> on top of this, there are three senators questioning how the trump properties are being protected and whether taxpayers are footing the bill, and they asked the questions in the letter to the secretary of defense and homeland security. i spoke to richard blumenthal a bit earlier. >> is your intent to decipher a conflict of interest? >> our focus really is on the potential conflict of interests raised by his continuing to have ownership of this vast global empire of real estate holdings, and golf courses, and resorts, hotels, all bearing his name, all potentially the target of terrorists attacks, and presumably somebody is guarding them and protecting them, and we want to know is it at taxpayer expense, because obviously the federal government has to
4:45 am
protect him and his family, but not necessarily all of his holdings and ownings across the world, and we want to know whether there's a legal obligation to protect them and what is the cost, if there is such a protection, and whether, in fact, we should be seeking reimbursement. i feel we should be. >> do you know if anybody within the trump organization has requested protection at these properties? >> that's part of what we're asking. very, very important question because if they requested it and the federal government complied, it raises the additional spectrum of conflict of interests, and we are in uncharted waters, and equally unprecedented or more so is his refusal to sell his ownership interests. >> if it'sid identified federal
4:46 am
funds were used what course of action would there be? >> past presidents have sold all the holdings and divested themselves and said being president is really my job, the most important responsibility any human being could have in public office these days, so i will devote myself to that task, and donald trump said in effect i will put it in a blind trust but i will retain ownership and the targeting could affect his judgments about foreign policy or other kinds of actions which is a separate and grave fear, but the next step we would take, i think s. to alert our colleagues and inform the public full disclosure, and then there might be remedies to seek reimbursement, and sunlight is the best, and the public can draw its own conclusions and we want money back for taxpayers if
4:47 am
we are footing the bill. >> thank you so much for being here that. >> thank you. and the senators said they set on deadline by next wednesday of where that money is coming from. next the legacy of rock pioneer, chuck berry, i was there when he was one of the first to be inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame, an aeu incredible night, and he was inducted by one of his biggest fans, keith richards. ♪ ♪ this week's staying well focuses on a growing trend of health trau tpegs professionals outdoors for walk and talk therapy. take a look. >> i can't tell you how i feel in 140 characters. i can, kind of. >> walk and talk therapy is what
