4:00 am
his statue at great american ballpark with major league baseball's permission, of course. the larger than life bronze sculpture captures his head-first slide and physiciete having a fun day at the ballpark. don't think he is ever getting into the baseball hall of fame considering he is still banned from baseball. >> i'm still thinking about the pink pants! >> he played so well yesterday. >> thank you, andy. seven u.s. sailors reported missing after a collision at sea are dead. >> a u.s. warship collided with the container ship when that crash happened. the ship took on water. it was damaged both above and below the water line. >> i can't tell you how proud i am of the crew for what they did to save the ship.
4:01 am
our deepest sympathies go out to the families of those ship mates. >> people are looking now at whether there is obstruction of justice charge, charged against the president of the united states. >> will the president move to fire special counsel robert mueller or deputy attorney general rod rosenstein? >> rosenstein is a key witness in the case and you can't be supervising an investigation where you are a key witness. >> president trump, by statute, can't fire mueller. >> his tweets on this matter have been unending and unceasing. i don't think most people are taking it very seriously. this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. >> good morning. i'm rene marsh in for christi paul today. good morning to you. >> i'm victor blackwell. a u.s. official is
4:02 am
confirming that seven sailors went missing after a collision involving a destroyer near japan are dead. their body were found in blood onned compartments of the "uss fitzgerald." the navy of the 7th fleet says the ship suffered significant damage. >> alexandra field is joining us in japan. >> reporter: they are grieving this morning for the loss of the ship mates who were on board the "uss fitzgerald" when that collision happened. it is still an inexplicable crash for different reasons and hard for people to understand how a warship on a routine operation could have collided with a container ship some three times its size. the naval community here and the family members of service men and women were holding out hope
4:03 am
more than a day as search efforts continue to try to locate seven missing sailors. those search efforts coming to an end with the navy announcing that divers had made a discovery going down into the flooded compartments of a ship that has returned to port now. they say they discovered remains of sailors. the commander of the 7th fleet here spoke to the media today talking about what the final moments on board that ship may have been like. is there anything you can share about the circumstances that those sailors were facing in those moments down in those birthing areas? do we know if these sailors were awake at the time of the collision, if they were awake afterward and if they tried to escape? also if you could just very briefly give us the mechanics of this crash. are we talking about a t-bone, a sideswiping? were there any call for help in advance or any efforts to maneuver to avoid a collision from either vehicle? >> thanks for your comments there.
4:04 am
so it was a at 2:20 in the morning. we do have watch teams that are awake throughout the night. but a significant part of the crew was sleeping. as i said before, two compartments that house 116 of the crew are in those compartments. and it was a significant impact to the side of the ship and you can't see most of the damage. the damage is mostly underneath the water line and it's a large gash and near the key of the ship. the water flow was tremendous. and so there wasn't a lot of time in those spaces that were open to the sea. and as you can see now, the ship is still listing and so they had to fight the ship to keep it above the surface, so it was traumatic. how much warning they had? i don't know.
4:05 am
that will be found out during the investigation. but it was a significant impact that the crew had to fight very hard to keep the ship afloat. >> reporter: the navy has ordered that investigation into what went so terribly wrong. three people who were on board the "uss fitzgerald" had to be med evaced away from the crash site, including the commander of that ship. tonight he is being described as being lucky to be alive after his quarters were decimated during that crash. we are told he and othethe othe are in stable condition but not able to speak with investigators to this point. >> jing us is ci want to start e vice admiral of the 7th fleet.
4:06 am
he wouldn't speculate on exactly how this accident happened.i wae admiral of the 7th fleet. he wouldn't speculate on exactly how this accident happened. we do know there are multiple investigations including one by the navy and the coast guard. what will they be looking for during the course of the this investigation? >> as you say, we know now what happened. we just don't know how it happened. how did these two vessels converge in the middle of the night? there are very strict rules, the law of the sea, how vessels pass each other and how they conduct in these shipping lanes. it's a very congested shipping lane and we have to find out which one of these ships altered course or not following the proper guidelines because, you know, it's unusual for ships of this size to get that close. >> i want to switch gears and turn to afghanistan. as you know, seven you soldiers were wounded in the northern region of afghanistan. one of those so-called green on blue attack. an insider attack.
4:07 am
this is all happening when defense secretary mattis is preparing to increase the number of troops dispatched to that area. how do you think this latest attack may influence his decision as far as how many troops to send? >> every time we have one of these attacks, we go back and we try and find out what happened. but that is not the big problem. as you say, is what are we doing in the future? general mattis is talking about deploying another 4,000 american troops to a war that is 16 years old. i think many of the americans are ti are tired of it and want clarity what is the mission in afghanistan? is it winnable? and are we going to continue to send american troops there when we have these incidents? when you have these incidents, it underscores the inability of the afghan government to properly vet their own people and it also tells us the taliban has been very effective in putting sleepers into the afghan army and then they conduct these kinds of operation. so it's just a very confusing
4:08 am
situation and general mattis really has to define what he wants to happen in afghanistan before i think he should deploy any more troops to afghanistan. >> speaking of mattis. he now has the authority to increase the number of troops in the region. president trump gave him that authority. this is what mattis told lawmakers on capitol hill recently. ed, quote, the president gave him the authority to turn number up and down as necessary when it comes to u.s. troops in the region. some, though, have criticized this move saying that the president shouldn't be giving mattis all of this discretion here, that this should be something that the president should be responsible for. what are your thoughts on this? >> as long as the president exercises oversight on what general mattis does, i don't have a problem with that. we have been calling for the decentralization of some of these authorities for a long time rather than everything being controlled right at the
4:09 am
white house. you give the pentagon, give the secretary of defense, and give some of the generals in the theater some control over what the troop levels are. they are there. they know what the troop levels are required. >> lieutenant cnn rick francona, thank you so much for joining us today. >> good to be with you. we have got the latest now on a raging wildfire in portugal and going on this morning and it's killed dos of people already. 57 people have decide. dozens of injuries. officials are describing it as the greatest wildfire tragedy of recent years. >> some victims burned to death trapped inside of their cars while trying to get away. portugal's president saying all that could be done was done. they examine the death toll will continue to rise. president trump's big reveal is expected this week? the question here, will we find out if there are actually white
4:10 am
house tapes of his conversations with a fbi director james comey. >> new details about a third noose found in d.c. >> the bill cosby case is over, his attorney is raising questions about the comedian's health. cnn sat down for an exclusive interview with one of his attorneys just hours after the declared mistrial. >> do you believe, though, that bill cosby drugged and assaulted women for decades? plaque psor. isn't it time to let the real you shine through? maybe it's time for otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months,... with reduced redness,... thickness, and scaliness of plaques. and the otezla prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring.
4:11 am
don't take otezla if you're allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase the risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts... or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight... and may stop treatment. side effects may include diarrhea,... nausea, upper respiratory tract infection... and headache. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you're pregnant or planning to be. ask your dermatologist about otezla today. otezla. show more of you.
4:12 am
our 18 year old wase army in an accident.'98. when i call usaa it was that voice asking me, "is your daughter ok?" that's where i felt relief. we're the rivera family,
4:13 am
and we will be with usaa for life. we send our kids out into the world, full of hope. and we don't want something like meningitis b getting in their way. meningococcal group b disease, or meningitis b, is real. bexsero is a vaccine to help prevent meningitis b in 10 to 25 year olds. even if meningitis b is uncommon, that's not a chance we're willing to take. meningitis b is different from the meningitis most teens were probably vaccinated against when younger.
4:14 am
we're getting the word out against meningitis b. our teens are getting bexsero. bexsero should not be given if you had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose. most common side effects are pain, redness or hardness at the injection site; muscle pain; fatigue; headache; nausea; and joint pain. bexsero may not protect all individuals. tell your healthcare professional if you're pregnant or if you have received any other meningitis b vaccines. ask your healthcare professional about the risks and benefits of bexsero and if vaccination with bexsero is right for your teen. moms, we can't wait. president said he is going to say address the issue of the tapes next week a decision the president will make in consultation with his chief and the president said he'll dress it next week. >> next week is this week. you heard it there directly from a member of the president's legal team. he was saying that the president
4:15 am
would reveal to the country this week whether or not there are recordings of his conversations in the oval office. >> to remind you this comes after the president appeared to threaten fired fbi dr. james comey in a tweet last month. you can see where he put the word tapes in quote. as we await for the answer, we have getting account of trump's tendency to tape conversations when he was a businessman. here is more with cnn correspondent brian todd. >> reporter: they are either a vital threat or important evidence. >> do tapes exist of your conversations with him? >> i'll tell but that maybe sometime in the very near future. >> reporter: alleged recordings or tapes as the president describe them on twitter of meetings between donald trump and fired fbi director james comey the white house has yet to release or confirm they are real. some people who have worked with or interviewed trump in the past say they believe the president's twitter tease may be nothing more than a tantalizing trick.
4:16 am
>> he certainly has made comments along the way to reporters about taping us while we are having conversations with him, especially on the phone. >> reporter: mark fisher is and editor at the time "the washington post." he says despite those claims he has never received evidence those recordings exist but when he interviewed trump for a biography, it became clear trump had other people listening in on conversations at his office in trump tower. >> in the middle of a discussion, he asked if we wanted anything to drink. and we had, sure. and he, in a very soft voice said, two waterses and a coke and there is nobody else in the room and less than a minute later, the secretary walks in with two waters and a coke and turned out from our discussion later on the second was, indeed, listening in on the conversations in the office. >> william widener said during a lawsuit trump's team once produced a recordings of a phone conversation widener had with trump and widener never knew was being recorded. the journal cites three former
4:17 am
lie level employees of trump saying trump would sometimes tape conversations during his trump tower office. when biographer timly o'brien was sued by trump ed that trump threatened he had taped him. >> during our deposition with trump when was over two days in december of 2007, we asked him do you, indeed, tape people and ed, no. and we had so you don't have a tape recording system set up in trump tower? ed, no, i do not have that set up. >> reporter: in talking to reporters trump rah raihas raisr questions. they say he would speak to reporters on the phone mass ka ra masquerading. >> he has a lot of options and frankly you get the ball by
4:18 am
everybody. you get called by everybody, especially women. >> reporter: trump denied doing that but his answers to reporters this time about whether tapes of white house conversations exist have sounded less like a denial and more like a cliff hanger. >> when will you tell us about the recordings? >> a fairly short period of time. >> are there tapes, sir? >> you're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer. don't worry. >> reporter: we reached out to president trump's personal attorney cohn and not aware of trump secretly recording any conversations while in the private sector and saw no rec d recording devices in his office. brian todd, cnn. let's discuss now. so the tapes. one of the president's attorneys
4:19 am
is going to be on with jake tapper on "state of the union" this morning. he said that this is the week we are going to learn if there are tapes. why drag this out, josh? >> basically, this is what donald trump does any time he doesn't want to tell us something. he says next week or in two weeks. it's convenient because it's long enough you don't ask every day but it's short enough you still stay excited. his way of stringing everybody along without actually making a decision. so i don't think jay was speaking for hims. he was referring to the president's statements which we know is a perilous thing for a spokesman for this president. all they can do. they don't have any information on when the decision are coming out. the president's statements tend to be totally incorrect and they are left holding the bag like they are sacrificing their problem. that is not a problem for jay but a trump problem and all of the rest of his aides have also
4:20 am
experienced. >> sarah, if there are tapes, by tapes, some rig in the oval office or cell phone recordings. if there are no tapes, what was the point? >> that is a great question. i mean, this tapes tweet has turned out one of the most costly mistakes the president has made at least when it come to social media. keep in mind that former fbi director james comey said he only decided to leak portions of his memos after he saw the president vaguely threatening him on twitter with secret recordings. then the deputy attorney general only decided to appoint a special counsel based on the details of james comey's memos that are come to life. beyond just the fact there are questions hanging over the white house daily about whether there are or are not tapes, the tweet has far more expensive damage on the administration so far. >> danny, you know, i know that we may be trying to make sense of snag is completely nonsense
4:21 am
cal here but let me ask you. if there are tapes and we know the legal process does not keep up sometimes with the public's desire to know, is there potentially a legal strategy that prevents the white house or his attorneys from acknowledging that there are recordings and releasing them? >> when we talk about president trump's tendency to tape things in his private life, things are totally different once he become the president. tapes made in the white house are presumively the property of the office of the president and not private items and because of the presidential record act. a product of the nixon administration. however, that doesn't really help us much today, because all that does is five years after trump's presidency, it allows us to obtain those record by a request. it's not much help today. what else nixon also taught us is that these tapes may be subpoenaed, so that if they are,
4:22 am
the white house will be forced to acknowledge whether they exist, whether they don't exist, or refuse to hand them over. we saw in the nixon presidency that often that claim of executive privilege is not as blanket, it's not as forceful as a president might want it to be. >> danny, let me ask also ask you quickly. one thing nixon did not have was a cell phone. is there a legal distinction if they are recording using government recording devices or the president's personal cell phone in his pocket? >> it's interesting how technology has sort of evolved our notion of recording. we talk about recording systems in the white house. i have a recording system in my iphone and we all do. recording sms can fit in a pen nowadays. it raises the question whether or not a pen recording or something you can buy at sharper image is a presidential recording under the presidential
4:23 am
recording act and it appears that it is. the breadth of a subpoena from congress can be very, very broad. it can cover something like a pen just bought at a store that happens to record and it's kept in your pocket. so there is very little distinction but technology forces us to re-evaluate and re-examine the federal laws enacted decades before we saw this. >> josh, we follow the patterns or claim of statements on twitter 3 to 5 million people voted illegally or the president tapped the phones at trump tower, there will not be a clean yes or no on this tweet. is that what -- are we expecting they will say, yes, there are tapes, no, there are no tapes without some action from congress? >> the only pattern is this no pattern and no way to predict whether or not the president will make good on his promises and explain what he is talking about and explain what he is tweeting or force his surrogates
4:24 am
to tread water in a way that satisfies no one. it's one thing for the president to make these claims. it's another thing for him to send out his -- to back them up with no assurance whatsoever that he is going to back them up two days, two week, two months, or two year down the line. we have entered this space where presidential tweets, which the press is tweeting as presidential statements, don't really have the credibility that presidential statements would have in any normal environment and that is disruptive not just for the sort of understanding of what our government is doing, but for all of the people who work for him who are put in this position where they simply can't win because there is nothing they can say that they can be sure of. >> we treat them as official statements for two reasons. one, the white house communications office calls them official statements from the president and because it's the president. it's the most direct route from his brain to the american public and he gave us two this morning. josh and sarah and danny, thanks so much. >> thank you.
4:25 am
watch "state of the union." jake tapper will have a member of president trump's legal team on and we will be hearing from senators marco rubio and bernie sanders today on "state of the union" here on cnn at 9:00 a.m. authorities in washington, d.c. investigate another incident involving a noose left mere a museum. bill cosby's case ended in a mistrial but now his attorney says that he is worried about the star's health. he speaks exclusively with cnn. it's our little differences, that can make a world of difference. expedia, everything in one place, so you can travel the world better.

4:31 am
diligence of the jury. >> in an exclusive interview with cnn's jean casarez, cosby's attorney is worried about the entertainer's health. >> i have been greatly concerned for his health. i don't know that i'll ever see 79, but if i do, i don't know that i could survive what he survived this week. i've been trying cases for 30 years. and it was difficult for me and i have no idea how he managed to sit in a room and endure while strangers were deciding his destiny and his fate. i think it did take a tremendous toll on him. any time you start a trial and end a trial with your client being presumed innocent, it can't be a loss. having said that, there are no winners here. we tried a case for a week. a jury deliberated for 50 some hours without a verdict. but, you know, as i've said many times before, as long as you can
4:32 am
leave that courtroom with your client presumed innocent as he began, then i'm satisfied. >> the county prosecutor says that he will retry this case. joining me now is danny savalo, a cnn legal analyst and criminal defense attorney. hard to draw any real conclusions here. i mean the judge told jurors not to discuss their deliberations. so we really may never know either way how they were leaning. danny, i do want to ask you about strategy going forward. they said that they going to retry this case. does the prosecution keep the same strategy that they have? do they need to regroup? and i ask you the same question about the defense. >> the prosecution has to keep the same strategy. it would be very odd if they came up with alternate theories at this point after all of their witnesses have locked in their testimony in a transcript throughout this five-day trial or at least their case in chief.
4:33 am
the case, at this point, when a mistrial happens, reverts to its pretrial status. but all of the motions that dealt with issues of law are already decided. so the prosecution has very little to do, other than cart over their file back to the courthouse several weeks from now, and try the case again. the defense, on the other hand, has gotten a free look at the prosecution's case in chief. there will be no surprises at this point. and they will have all of that testimony of the prosecution's witnesses locked in as well and available for cross-examination. so while this does slightly benefit the defense, there is also the other costs of a second trial on the defense, which is both a massive financial cost that few people can take on, other than someone like bill cosby. and then sort of the emotional physical toll of going through a trial again. so any benefit to the defense in
4:34 am
a mistrial is sort of cancelled by having to go through it again because double jeopardy does not attach. >> i want to talk a little bit more about the defense. we heard the attorney for bill cosby essentially saying that he is worried about his health. how may even that aspect about cosby and his ailing health play into their strategy when they have to defend him a second time around? what do you think the impact will be there? >> constitutionally, a client must be able to understand the proceedings and they must be able to assist their lawyer in their defense. that is a fundamental issue of any trial. and cosby's attorney is right on when he says that, look. at his advancing age, the toll of repeated trials is going to be devastating on him and eventually raise a question as to how much this defendant can take. there may be just principles of
4:35 am
justice that indicate that he should be tried again. of course, the prosecution would counter that principle of justice support trying him again on behalf of the victim. but this is a case that the prosecution did sit on for ten year and just before the statute of li of limitations they tried to resurrect this. >> if i understand you correctly, are you saying the fact that cosby's attorney is saying his health is failing, that could essentially play into this case not getting retried if he is not in any shape to even help to advise his attorney? >> i'm not saying that yet. it's something they would have to consider if it came up. if his health declines, which is certainly possible. that may be something -- that wouldn't even be a strategic
4:36 am
choice. that is just a constitutional issue that may come up. mr. mrk monagle is making the point that yes there is a victim and especially the case of somebody who is ultimately not guilty, that person has gone through an ordeal of their own. and he is reminding the public that mr. could by, like any defendant, is a human, he is presumed innocent and any criminal trial takes a devastating toll on everybody. again, i'm not saying that without keeping in mind that there are always victims in these cases or complainants who are alleging they have been injured too and they have been seeking justice. we should always remember that defendants, especially those who are acquitted, have undergone an ordeal of their own. >> right. danny, thank you for that. there has been another noose found on the national mall in washington. >> park police say that this is the latest incident that happened. it happened saturday outside of
4:37 am
the national gallery of art. the noose was hanging from a lamp post. >> this is the third time in recent weeks a noose found in the mall. one was found inside the african-american museum of culture and one found in another museum. coming up, what is it like to be donald trump's second in command is in the awkward moments that vice president mike pence has found himself in. plus, milwaukee county sheriff david clark is out. the trump administration officially announces he is no longer up for a job with homeland security. those details straight ahead. it's not just a car, it's your daily retreat. the es and es hybrid. lease the 2017 es 350 for $329 a month for 36 months. experience amazing at your lexus dealer. and we're partnering with cigna to help save lives. we are the tv doctors of america. by getting you to a real doctor

our randi kaye record on the awkwardness and it goes all the way back to the campaign. >> and thanks to the leadership. >> reporter: after the firing of fbi director james comey last month mike spence insisted the president base his insistence on recommendations that he had received. >> let me be clear that the president's decision to accept the recommendation of the deputy attorney general and the attorney general to remove director comey as the head of the fbi was based solely and exclusively on his commitment to the best interests of the american people. >> reporter: but the very next day, president trump put his vice president in an awkward light by telling nbc he had made the decision to fire comey on his own. >> what i did is i was going to fire comey. my decision. it was not -- >> reporter: you had made decision before they came into the room? >> i was going to fire comey. >> reporter: on top of that even though pence had said publicly that trump's decision to fire
4:43 am
comey was not related to the russian investigation. >> there is no evidence of collusion between our campaign and any russian official. that is not -- let me be clear. >> this investigation -- >> that was not what this is about. >> reporter: he was proven wrong again. >> when i decided to just do it, i said to myself, i said, you know, this russia thing with trump and russia is a made-up story. >> reporter: also on russia? back in january after then national security adviser michael flynn had misled the vice president about his contacts with the russian ambassador, mike pence went on national television defending flynn's actions. >> they did not discuss anything having to do with the united states' decision to expel diplomats. >> reporter: later a spokesman for flynn said he couldn't be sure that the topic of sanctions hadn't come up in confidences with russia. he was soon fired but not before

embarrassing the vice president. in february, after trump blasted a judge for block is his immigration ban pence was on cleanup duty:the president of the united states has every right to criticize the other two branches of government. i think people find it very refreshing they not onlynd this president's mind but they understand how he feels about things. he expresses himself in a unique way. >> reporter: and even before the election, there were moments on the campaign trail that proved awkward for pence. >> whoa. >> whoa! >> reporter: like when this "access hollywood" tape came out. >> when you're a star, they let you do it. you can do anything. grab them by the [ bleep ] [ laughter ] >> you can do anything. >> reporter: pence said in a statement he was offended and cannot defend his then running mate but soon after when several women accused trump of inappropriate behavior, he just that. >> he has made it clear that was
4:45 am
