the president donald trump willing to tell his story under oath, denying allegations made by fbi director james comey. >> it was supposed to be a strong, stable victory. instead, britain's election weakened. from moscow, the stigma and struggles of being hiv positive in russia. >> welcome to viewers in the united states and around the world, we are live in atlanta, i am natalie allen. >> i am george howell. "newsroom" starts right now. good day to you, 5:00 a.m. on the u.s. east coast. the president of the united states donald trump struck a defientd tone when asked about james comey's testimony. he says he will 100% testify. he's willing to do so to dispute comey's account. >> oddly enough, he doesn't want to dispute everything comey said. here is jim acosta from the
white house. >> reporter: speaking as he tweets in short bursts, president trump tried to have it both ways, claiming the testimony of james comey as his salvation, slamming the man he fired in the same breath. >> no collusion, no obstruction. he's a leaker. >> reporter: during a news conference with the romanian president, mr. trump denied he tried to shut down the russia probe, specifically when it comes to national security adviser michael flynn. >> i didn't say that. i will tell you, i didn't say that. >> reporter: the president rejected the notion he asked comey for a pledge of loyalty as the former fbi director said in sworn testimony. >> i hardly know the man. i am not going to ask him to do that. who would ask him to pledge allegiance under oath. think of it, i hardly know the man. it doesn't make sense. no, i didn't say that. >> reporter: mr. trump's response when asked whether he would speak under oath on the matter. >> 100%.
>> reporter: but he dug in heels on whether he has recordings of conversations with comey and others at the white house. >> i'll tell you about that sometime in the very near future, tell you over a short period of time. okay. do you have a question? >> when do you tell us -- >> in a short period of time. >> are there tapes, sir? >> you're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer, don't worry. >> reporter: in their response to comey testimony, democrats are eager for the president to tell what he knows under oath with special prosecutor robert mueller. >> i would expect at some point, not right away, at some point mr. mueller would feel he has to depose the president. >> reporter: one subject the president wasn't asked about, attorney general jeff sessions, the white house danced around whether the president has confidence in the attorney general, even some republicans say it is time to know more about sessions' interactions with the russians during the campaign. >> we on the intelligence committee want to know the answers to those questions and
we have begun to request information from the attorney general to allow us to get to the bottom of that. >> reporter: the president was asked by a romanian reporter whether he is committed to nato article 5 which would mandate the u.s. come to defense of the alliance's more vulnerable nations on russia's border. >> i am committing the united states and have committed, but i am committing the united states to article 5, certainly we are there to protect and that's one of the reasons i want people to make sure we have a very strong force by paying the kind of money necessary to have that force, but yes, absolutely i would be committed to article 5. >> reporter: jim acosta, cnn, the white house. >> jim acosta, thank you. a member of the senate intelligence committee, dianne feinstein, a democrat, wrote a letter to her committee's chair asking that it velgt anything related to obstruction of justice. she also recommended issuing subpoenas to two intelligence
agency chiefs who refused to answer questions about their conversations with the president. she got an answer out of james comey thursday though, not quite an answer she was looking for. listen. >> why didn't you stop and say mr. president, this is wrong. i cannot discuss this with you. >> great question. maybe if i were stronger, i would have. i was so stunned by the conversation that i just took it in. >> let's talk more about the developments with associate professor from university of london, she joins us live. leslie, a lot to breakdown with comey's appearance and reaction from this president. seems like the big question is what is the fallout from this? the media seems divided on obstruction of justice.
>> i think unsurprisingly a lot of their reaction to comey's testimony was refractured through the lens. you could see that during the hearings. on the one hand, republicans are pushing, saying why didn't you say more, did he really obstruct jaul justice, he didn't tell you things had to stop, and democrats pushing more on the inappropriateness of the pressure, the not so subtle pressure comey felt he was under in the very private meetings not only to be loyal but to block and stop investigations of flynn. so the fact it is portrayed in different ways in the media reflects that broader division that's going on. so there's a lot of fallout, but i think the disturbing and difficult thing is that it is being interpreted in broad terms, which isn't to say it won't have broader impact on public opinion on the presidency and extent to which president
trump is compliant with rule of law. there's an on-going question about this issue of obstruction of justice certainly. >> what about the tapes. he was asked about that in his appearance outside the white house, he kind of flirted with the answer. he first floated the idea the conversation was taped, now he is saying he won't answer that yet. what if there are tapes, will we ever get there? >> yeah, there's a big question mark about the tapes, he is hedging his bets. there's no way of knowing of course whether there are tapes. clear i think from comey's testimony if there are tapes, he very much liked those to be released. he took copious notes, he released the memos, i think he wouldn't mind in any way, shape or form having the tapes in the public domain so there could be more objective evidence that things that he's saying about the pressure that he feels he came under are evidently true.
but it is not possible to know right now whether there are tapes, and if there are, perhaps the president is hedging on releasing those because they would potentially confirm some of what comey said, that donald trump is seeking to push back against right now. >> what's the next thing to come from this otherwise. we don't know how long it is taking mr. miller to do his job but this investigation certainly is looking more like it will be -- >> there's a couple things. one of the most fascinating things about comey's testimony, he reminded us that the issue, the fundamental issue where we began with this, there's a very basic question about russia's activities in the u.s. presidential election, and comey made it very clear that's a real issue, that there's absolutely no doubt in his mind that the evidence exists and he says they're coming back for america. the problem now is that we are
all very distracted by the secondary but very significant issue of whether or not there's obstruction of justice charge legitimately to be made against the president of the united states for seeking to block the investigations and to see whether or not there's any relationship between members of his team, past and present, and that broader question. the broader question is getting lost. going forward there's going to be a lot of focus, and i think mueller will be pressing for privately and intensely and will have watched the hearings, public hearings very carefully and be drawing on that to further his own investigation. that's where a lot of work will take place. the level of public hearings, now there's media attention, the public needs to know. there will be greater investigation and attempt to try and drill down, whether or not comey legitimately came under undue pressure to block the
investigation about flynn and why he was fired. it is a very difficult question that's not going to go away any time soon. >> thank you for joining us. >> thank you. the british prime minister theresa may is dealing with shock of thursday's election. she says she will take time to reflect on how to move forward, now that her conservatives lost their majority in parliament. >> may had hoped for more support in brexit talks later this month. >> as the results started to come, more results started to come through, it became clear we were the party that had the most seats and most votes. i thought it was in couple bent at a critical time in our country to form a government in the national interest, and that is what i am doing. what i think is important in brexit negotiations that start in ten days' time is that we have the certainty of the government that can take forward a plan into the brexit negotiations. that's why i think at this critical time for our country it is important to form a
government in the national interest as we're the party with the most seats and votes, the only party in position to form a government that can do that, and that's what we're doing. >> the prime minister is trying to put on a stiff upper lip, we're hearing from people that still support her. many critics and members in her own ranks are questioning her leadership. >> theresa may has got to resign. brexit talks, clearly the weakest party. the farce of saying you have a big majority to prove the negotiating system. >> i am relieved because for a woman that changed her mind a lot, she promises a lot of stability and i think we're going to get that stability. >> that's the word on the street. let's get reporting in context. joined by melissa bell outside downing street.
>> and robert oakley from outside houses of parliament. melissa, start with you outside downing street. this has been a tough go of it for this prime minister, and she's still uncertain of her future. >> reporter: great uncertainty about her ability to go forward and remain leader at this crucial time in british politics. you mention brexit negotiations. remember it was her belief that majority of 17 wasn't enough to give her the clout and strength she needed to push through the kind of present negotiations she wanted that led her to take this catastrophic gamble to gain with. the woman that lives at number 10 downing street has her work cut out for her the next few days. first of all, she's going to announce the rest of her cabinet. she announced a few key positions and a number of important cabinet members remain in their posts and unchanged, but it is a nine, middle ranking
junior senators that lost their seats, who are now going to have to be replaced. that's the first thing theresa may has to do oeven as she continues talks in the hopes of cobbling together a minority government. >> what did her contemporaries think when she decided to do this election, was there support for her then? >> reporter: funny to think back seven weeks, what happened was unimaginable. seemed like a stroke of political genius on her part, she was going to capitalize on her position to reinforce her majority to head into brexit negotiations and get the kind of brexit deal she wants. a hard brexit. when you consider the size of the challenge, it isn't just negotiations european partners, even as those take place, the great repeal bill to be introduced in the queen's speech in nine days' time that will allow the legislative changes
that will mean that law comes back to the united kingdom, away from the european union. it mentions 12,000 pieces of eu regulation have to be changed. this requires a solid majority to get through. this requires the kind of political clout that theresa may appears to have squandered. >> melissa bell. for more, let's go to george. >> bring in robert oakley outside house fs parliament. cnn contributor. good to have you with us. let's talk more about the two parties that will form an appliance, dup and conservatives. what does it mean for the two parties to come together and what is the danger here foray lini -- for aligning with the dup. >> it is a realization to have to return to the democratic party in northern island to
rescue her, give her any chance of surviving as a minority government. there's also political danger in her doing so because the british government is supposed to remain neutral in disputes between nationalists and unionists in northern ireland politics. it has been a constitutional crisis going on with the sharing system having broken down, it is dangerous, theresa may identified one side with the arguments in northern ireland politics. secondly, dup is regarded with suspicion in her own ranks because it is attitudes on same-sex marriage and abortion. thirdly, i think there's complication when it comes to brexit because northern island party will demand concessions, they're keen to have no effective border with brexit.
the only land border that britain will have with the european union is in ireland, northern ireland mps will want a soft border. really, it looks no different to how things are at the moment. lots much complications in joining up with the dup, george. >> robin, talk more about theresa may's advisers, taking heat in the press from conservatives that feel she listened to them rather than members of her own party. >> indeed. the conservative party has been absolutely shocked, embarrassed, horrified, humiliated by this defeat. they want to blame somebody. for the moment, don't feel they can blame theresa may directly, try andy jekt her as leader, that would make a complicated system more complicated. they want some sacrifices. the first target for sacrifices are the two closest advisers,
nick timothy, fiona hill. many resent their control. they say they're not listening to those two advisers rule the roost, so there's pressure for one or both of them to be got rid of in this immediate election aftermath. the question is, though, how dependent is theresa may on those two, her whole style has been close decision making with a small knit group of decision makers. would she be able to adapt to life without those two. certainly the pressure is for them to go, and they of course also held to have stopped the chancellor getting into the election campaign and countering labor's economic arguments and jeremy given a free run on those. >> we know theresa may ran on the platform of strong and
stable. brexit ne brexit negotiations nine days away. not as strong as the snap election, the government not as stable. robin oakley, appreciate the context. thanks so much. coming up, donald trump taking credit for a diplomatic crisis that isolated qatar. we'll tell you his new message. g keep you sidelined. that's why you drink ensure. with 9 grams of protein and 26 vitamins and minerals. for the strength and energy to get back to doing... ...what you love. ensure. always be you. wearing powerful sunscreen? yes! neutrogena® ultra sheer. unbeatable protection helps prevent early skin aging and skin cancer with a clean feel. the best for your skin. ultra sheer®. neutrogena®. we, the device loving people want more than just unlimited data. we want unlimited entertainment. so we can stream unlimited action. watch unlimited robots.

messages about qatar. top diplomats are urging regional powers to stop isolating. >> president trump has a completely different view on it. >> the time had come to call on qatar to end its funding. they have to end that funding. and its extremist ideology in terms of funding. i want to call on all other nations to stop immediately supporting terrorism. >> very strong words against one of washington's biggest allies in the gulf. bring in jomana her aj a. the president's words here having significant impact across the region. >> reporter: absolutely. there's so much confusion. the theme of this past week is
mixed messages the united states is sending. you have officials, senior officials from the administration calling to resolve the crisis, on the other hand, president trump and his comments that can only be seen as in flaming the situation further. when this part of the world is looking to u.s. for a leadership position here, they're not getting that right now. it seems to be contributing to making the crisis worse, and this is not just a lip low mat i can crisis, it is one having an impact on people's lives. the holy month of ramadan is a time extended families meet and enjoy generations old traditions. but the political crisis in the gulf is threatening to tear this family apart. the doctor is a single mother, her children are citizens. in gulf countries, children take
citizenship of their father. when they severed ties with qatar, it ordered nationals to leave qatar immediately. >> i am in risk of losing my children, it is my dream to raise them around me to get married from around me and to be happy all the day. now i may lose my children any minute. >> reporter: the situation is uncertain. they believe if they defy the order, the children lose their passports, leaving them stateless. >> my mom worries about this by herself, it is tough since she's a single mother. that made us closer and now after 21 years to pull us apart based on the passport that we have, i mean, families are beyond passports. it makes no sense to separate them based on what your passport. at the end, we're all humans, aren't we? >> i have been raised all my
life in qatar with my mother. i have gone to bahrain four times to visit family. now i don't have any family worth visiting in bahrain. i wouldn't classify myself as bahrainian. there's an english saying, your home is where your heart is, my heart is in this place. >> reporter: he is studying medicine at an ivy league university, this is not just about being separated from their mother. >> my point of view is my education to further develop myself and it is only that, that's what's really important to me. this country has given me everything to do that. and then they say go back to the country that holds 48 pages of documents, it is absurd. >> reporter: according to government figures, nearly 6500 qatar citizens are married to saudis or bay rainies.
>> children shouldn't be separated from their parents. i don't understand it. especially with a region that has multiple families from different countries. it makes no sense. >> brothers and sisters and neighbors live all their life with us. why? >> reporter: no one knows how or when the crisis will end, leaving thousands of families like this one living in limbo. george, this is the story of one family, amnesty international released a report with so many more stories of families going through just this, they're calling on saudi arabia, the emirates and bahrain to respect human rights and stop toying with people's lives. >> real people being effected by this, jomana. we understand mixed messages
coming from washington, also foreign ministers from qatar and russia are set to meet. moscow set to help mediate a diplomatic crisis. what more can you tell us about this? >> reporter: well, this visit that was announced a couple days ago, we have seen so much movement, george, on the diplomatic scene. you had foreign ministers and officials from various gulf states trachlg around the region. kuwait has been trying to mediate this crisis. the big question is what is the end game. there's lots of theories about where this is all headed. possibly one theory is that these countries are trying to push qatar into a corner to try and get some concessions out of this tiny country that has had so much influence over the past few years in different parts of the region competing with strong countries like saudi arabia.
george. >> few mince shy of half past noon in cat doha, qatar. still ahead, the u.s. president says there's been no collusion, no obstruction. >> now he is willing to testify under oath to end the russia investigation, he says. we'll look at how moscow is reacting to that coming up. go "grumbily, grumbily, grumbily"? no more questions for you! ouph, that milk in your cereal was messing with you, wasn't it? try lactaid, it's real milk without that annoying lactose. good, right? -mmm, yeah. lactaid. the milk that doesn't mess with you. my belly pain i could build a small city with all the over-the-counter products i've used. enough! i've tried enough laxatives to cover the eastern seaboard. i've climbed a mount everest of fiber. probiotics? enough! (avo) if you've had enough, tell your doctor what you've tried and how long you've been at it. linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation or chronic constipation.
it can help relieve your belly pain, and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children less than six, and it should not be given to children six to less than eighteen. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage. get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. talk to your doctor about managing your symptoms proactively with linzess. so, if anyone has a reason that these two should not be wed, speak now.

connection with the london bridge terror attack, a 27 and 28-year-old arrested in separate locations in east london. they're asking the public for help about these pink ceramic knives and this band used in the attack. the president of brazil gets to keep his job, acquitted of irregularities in the 2014 election. the top court voted 4-3 in his favor. he faces open investigation into alleged corruption. mr. temer denies all allegations. donald trump expected to unveil changes to policy toward cuba in a speech next week. u.s. officials say the president is likely to reverse some reforms the obama administration brought in in 2014 when they reestablished diplomatic ties. comey testifies, the u.s. president says he has been
vindicated after hearing the testimony of the fired fbi director. >> and mr. trump made an extraordinary offer to be sworn in and put his version of their conversations on the record. here is sara murray with more. >> no collusion, no obstruction, he's a leaker. >> reporter: a defiant president trump says he is willing to testify under oath about his conversations with james comey. >> so he said those things under oath. would you be willing to speak under oath to give your version? >> 100%. >> reporter: after restraining himself during comey's testimony thursday, today trump is going on offense. >> frankly james comey confirmed a lot of what i said, and some of the things he said just weren't true. >> reporter: one day after comey made clear he thought president trump lied, trump accused the former fbi director of lying under oath. but he refused to say whether he has tapes of his conversations with comey. >> i'll tell you about maybe
sometime in the very near future. you're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer. >> reporter: this as trump and allies adopt a questionable defense strategy, insisting the president is in the clear because comey testified that trump was not under investigation when comey still led the fbi, arguing other parts of comey's testimony of a fraud. trump insisted he never asked comey to back off the investigation into former national security adviser michael flynn. >> i didn't say that. >> so he lied about that. >> well, i didn't say that. i will tell you, i didn't say that. >> reporter: trump said he never asked comey for loyalty. >> did he ask for a pledge of loyalty from you. >> no, he did not. i hardly know the man, i am not going to say i want you to pledge allegiance, who would do that. >> reporter: statements that directly contradict comey's testimony. while the president may feel exonerated, members of his own party are still airing their concerns, saying the president crossed a line. >> the president asked mr. comey
to do an inappropriate action and that was to drop the investigation of general michael flynn. that was clearly inappropriate, crossed a boundary that the president should not have crossed. >> reporter: ever since president trump raised the idea he may have recordings of conversations with james comey, something he floated on twitter, the white house has been playing coy about that notion. that game is about to end, house and senate investigators fired off a series of requests, including to the white house, saying they want to see the tapes. sara murray, cnn, the white house. look how moscow is reacting to revelations we saw in washington this week. let's go to cnn contributor jill dougherty, former cnn moscow bureau chief. jill, certainly a lot of finger pointing as far as which aisle you were on, as far as the weight, the bombshell of comey's
revelations, but now donald trump says wait, he's going to tell his side so on it goes. >> reporter: it is. and you know, the russians essentially are saying we're not even interested. the spokesperson for president putin said basically we're not following this because we have better things to do and that's the attitude here. even for americans i think, this is all very complicated, every single action and reaction. the russians are really standing back, not specifically commenting accept that m mmr mr. peskof, spokesperson for the president, said they take what comey is saying with distrust. in other words, they don't really believe what comey is saying, but they're not getting into the wes. it could be dangerous to do that, it is very murky and it is back and forth in the united states. essentially what they stand back
and say is that this is a big nothing burger. this is as one commentator who said it is a soap bubble, it is not going to go anywhere and not going to end in impeachment. >> we will wait and see because it is going on for some time certainly in many different directions. let's move to the other international following, the isolation of qatar by the other powerful countries in that region. mixed messages coming from the trump team. trump saying one thing about it, his secretary of state saying another. all the while, russia is stepping in to try to solve it. >> right. and the united states certainly is not on the same page it would appear. the president and his secretary of state. but the russians are. what they have now is the foreign minister here in moscow, greeting and meeting the foreign minister of qatar, and they're
showing, making it clear that russia wants to help to solve this and the qataris for their part are happy to have a major country that is interested in solving it. so behind the scenes will be a lot of talk about qatar's isolation, about the blockade, and also about syria and how it is a russian interest. how all of this could effect the situation in syria. don't forget, you know, russia and qatar really are dependent upon each other. both the biggest gas producers in the world, they have an economic relationship. there's quite a bit of investment by the qataris, so the russians want to bring this to an end and want to show they have influence in the middle east. >> jill dougherty from moscow. thank you. time for a recap of the big
story we're following out of united kingdom. theresa may is clinging to power after thursday's snap election as she called it. she called for support to have brexit talks, conservatives lost seats in parliament, lost their majority. >> mrs. may says she will form a government with northern ireland democratic unionist party. but questions remain about what kind of deal she will make and her approach to brexit talks. here's what she said friday about the new government. >> illino will now form a gover that can provide certainty and lead britain forward at this critical time for our country. >> for more on the election that's been a setback for miss may, joined by silvia borrelli. always a pleasure to have you with us this hour. the prime minister vowed to stay on to keep her leadership, she's seen as a lame duck. how sure is her leadership
moving forward? >> reporter: for now they have to ask yourself, does it make sense to oust her days before the brexit negotiations kickoff, and the answer is probably not. but at the same time, is her position tenable in long term for the next five years and the answer to that is probably not as well, so it is quite complicated. if you think about when she called the snap election in april two months ago, her popularity was very high and conservatives were pretty sure they were going to win this by a landslide, and look how things have changed. it is very hard now to say how things are going to look like six months down the line. now with brexit negotiations about to kickoff, it is very tricky. >> tereshe got more seats in parliament with conservatives, so won in effect but lost her stronger position that she had before the snap election. jeremy corbin didn't get as many
seats in parliament with labor but in fact he won because he got more than many expected. so the question here with jeremy corbin, how much stronger a voice does he have in british politics. >> reporter: definitely a stronger one. again, jeremy corbin was very unpopular especially with then his own party just months ago and now this high, young voters turnout, all of this momentum he gained on the campaign trail bringing him to actually get more seats than expected and almost to put the conservative party in a situation where they might not have been able to even form a coalition really gives him strength, really gives him power, and it is likely we'll see him run for prime minister if theresa may or the conservatives end up governing the next five years. we're likely to see jeremy corbin still in this position
five years down the line. >> silvia borrelli live from lochb london. thank you for the insight. we will stay in touch. >> thanks. russia has an escalating hiv problem. why those willing to help say the government is getting in the way. veggies? v8 or a powdered drink? ready, go. ahhhhhhhh! shake! shake! shake! shake! shake! done! you gotta shake it! i shake it! glad i had a v8. the original way to fuel your day. ray's always been different. last year, he said he was going to dig a hole to china. at&t is working with farmers to improve irrigation techniques. remote moisture sensors use a reliable network to tell them when and where to water. so that farmers like ray can compete in big ways. china. oh ... he got there. that's the power of and.
