"the new york times" reporting the first crack at collusion. "new day" will stay with us right now. we'll see you tomorrow. the president's campaign did not collude in any way. >> donald trump jr. was informed in an e-mail compromising information about hillary clinton. part of a russian government effort to help his father's campaign. >> that's opposition research. you're always looking to get the upper hand. >> what's been revealed for the first time is potential, real
2:58 am
coordination between the kremlin and the trump campaign. >> rest assured donald trump jr. will be somebody we want to talk to. >> there was no information given. no action taken. if we learn nothing from the meeting -- >> doesn't matter what he learned. it matters why he took the meeting. this is "new day" with chris cuomo and allisisyn camerota. >> welcome to our viewers around the united states and around the world. this is "new day." tuesday, july 11th, 6:00 in new york. we begin with another major development in russia's interference in the 2016 election. here's the starting line -- "the new york times" reports donald trump jr. was told in an e-mail that a lawyer he had met with last summer would offer him dirt on hillary clinton as part of a russian government effort to help his father win the election. fueling new questions about the trump campaign's possible ties to russia. the white house is rushing to defend the president's son
2:59 am
saying this is meaningness coincidence. we know of seven trump connection that's have lied, changed their stories, or not been forthcoming about their contacts with russia. >> congressional investigators want to talk with the president's son about his meeting with the russian lawyer. the vice chairman of the senate intel committee calls the development "clear evidence" that trump officials met with russians, with the intention of hurting hillary clinton. and we are following breaking news. a u.s. military plane crashes in a remote field in mississippi killing at least 16 people. what caused the marine corps aircraft to plummet from the sky? cnn has all of this covered for you. let's begin with jason carroll live at the white house. jason? >> reporter: good morning to you. you know, the white house now seeming to have to keep up with what it seems like a daily report about this meeting that trump jr. gave in 2016. the latest report offering new insight into what trump jr. knew
3:00 am
before the meeting took place. another potential bombshell report from "the new york times" alleging that donald trump jr. received an e-mail informing him that the russian government was trying to help his father's campaign. before his june, 2016, meeting with the president's son-in-law jared kushner, former campaign chairman paul manafort and a russian lawyer fought to have compromising information . . . three unnamed sources tell the times that the e-mail sent by rob gold stone, awe miceic publicist, who coordinated the meeting, indicated the russian government was the source of the potentially damaging information. six weeks later, trump junior slamminged the clinton campaign for suggesting that the russians were involved in an effort to help then candidate trump. >> it goes to show you their exact moral compass. they will say anything to be able to win this. this is time and time again, lie
3:01 am
after lie. it is disgusting and so phoney. tru trump junior's newly hired lawyer says his client did nothing wrong. his takeaway was that someone had information potentially helpful from the campaign and coming from someone he knew. don junior had no knowledge as to what specific information, if any, would be discussed. the white house on the defensive. >> don junior exclusively stated he didn't know the name of the person who he was meeting. >> the president's campaign did not col lewd in any way. >> reporter: congressional investigators probing potential collusion between the trump campaign and russia already expressing interest in speaking with trump who tweeted monday that he would be happy to pass on what i know. >> this is the first time the public has seen clear evidence of senior level members of the
3:02 am
trump campaign meeting with russians to try to obtain information that might hurt the campaign of hillary clinton. >> trump's legal team choosing to reiterate an earlier statement when asked about the new report noting the president was not aware of and did not attend the meeting. >> so, to date, at least seven former or current members of team trump have come under question for not being forthcoming about their initial contacts with russians. you see the list of notable names there on your screen. a source telling cnn that members of the senate intel committee will begin interviewing some of these trump officials beginning as early as this week. chris, allison? >> jason, thank you very much. joining us on the phone now with more on this new reporting is "the new york times" reporter, their white house correspondent and our cnn political hanlist, maggie haber man. good morning, maggie.
3:03 am
>> reporter: good morning. >> tell us more about this e-mail that seems to have made it explicit to don junior that there was this russian lawyer who was claiming to have compromising information about hillary clinton. >> in the course of setting up this meeting with don junior's intermediary, rob goldstone, an acquaintance of his, made clear whether it was his knowledge or it was funneled through several other people. he made clear that he was trying to offer potentially compromising information about hillary clinton and that it was part of a broader russian effort to help his father's campaign. that was made very plain. don junior went ahead with the meeting anyway so it would not
3:04 am
set off alarm flags. it was four or five days before it was largely reported that russian hackers had infiltrated the democratic e-mail servers. it was also true at that moipoi that russia was considered an adversary of the u.s. and this did not set off the alarms you would typically expect it to with the campaign. this campaign did not function typically. don trump junior had a pretty open door policy. this is the first concrete, in-writin in-writing example that we know of. >> maggie, in terms of sourcing, were you told about the e-mails, did you see them? how much do you know about the content of the e-mails? >> we were told about the content of this e-mail. again, i don't want to suggest.
3:05 am
the story represents what we know. we don't know whether there were other e-mail exchanges. we don't know what was said in this meeting. we just know of how this particular original exchange went. >> so, maggie, what makes you and "the new york times" think that this russian lawyer is connected to the kremlin somehow? >> i'm sorry, alison, can you repeat that? >> how do you know this russian lawyer that don, junior, met with was related to the kremlin? >> this is in the reporting, that she wanted to talk about the issue of russian adoptions. it is basically about sanctions against russia for human rights
3:06 am
abuses. this is our understanding from our reporting. >> the e-mail in terms of bootstrapping the context, the e-mail indicated that the person he would meet with who was this russian lawyer was part of this government effort on behalf of the kremlin to influence the election, right? >> no, the e-mail as we understand it said that this information was part of it. >> so the information she was going to get. so it was coming two different ways? >> i don't know that it was more specific about who she was in particular. >> maggie, thank you very much for sharing your reporting with us this morning. we'll see you very soon. let's bring in our panel to discuss all of this. we have cnn political analyst, and errol louis and philip mud. david gregory, nice to see you back after a little break. what jumps out from this "new
3:07 am
york times" reporting about this e-mail to don junior and the meeting he had? >> what jumps out is about all the follow-up questions it creates and what the nature of the information was, where it was coming from. eve morn striking than that is the shocking incompetence and arrogance to say such things about an opponent. that's not the new part. the fact that it would be someone connected to the russian government ought to give you pause. it just shows in the course of the campaign they were letting themselves be vulnerable to potential blackmail, filtration, all kind of things by a russian
3:08 am
government looking to interfere in our election. this is the same time, if you recall, that candidate trump was inviting russia in a press conference to hack hillary clinton's e-mails and find the missing e-mails and reveal them. a complete disregard for what russia could have actually been up to and was up to in terms of trying to interfere with the election. i think it is the lack of understanding that they were vulnerable an the arrogance, the inexperience with all of that and all of the questions about what they were doing here, not knowing who they were meeting with and pull ng top people very close to the candidate at that time into such a meeting? >> there are two layers of analysis. the first one is with don junior and what it means in the large he investigation. the first one, the white house is a pretty clear line of defense. this meeting amounted to nothing. we have kellyanne conway, part of the interview she did here
3:09 am
yesterday morning. she laid this out. it had an echo throughout the day. here it is. >> don junior changed his story. he says he met with her because she had bad information on clinton. >> this is why he learned nothing from that meeting. >> it doesn't matter what he learned. it matters why he took the meeting. >> yes, it does. it matters completely. yes, it does. >> they are looking into whether or not russia was trying to get inside the election. he admits he took the meeting because someone was offering him that type of information. it matters, period. >> we learned that's not the sound bite i want them to show but what i was doing was testing her line, nothing came out of the meeting, they learned nothing. he didn't act on the meeting. nothing ever happened with another meeting. because it amounted to nothing it doesn't matter. i don't think that works legally
3:10 am
in terms of or ethically in terms of analyzing don junior's decision to accept this solicitation and offer for the meeting and go. >> one reason that don junior has hired a lawyer and that he and his lawyer are going to have some follow-up conversations with bob muller and his team, it doesn't matter whether you actually act on an illegal meeting. the state of mind is part of any crime. the intent matters. when you are talking about conspiracy or collusion, the state of mind is most of what we are talking about here. if you get together and you know that. there is an e-mail that proofs it. there is an e-mail saying that the russian government has compromising information on
3:11 am
hillary clinton. would you like to meet and talk about it? you are three-quarters of the way to having a real problem. whether you decide to do something or you figure out all of the information, there is a problem here. it cries out for further investigation. who else knew about it? where did it come from? did you pass the information on to anybody else? what was your state of mind or the state of mind of the campaign. were you looking for this kind of information from other sources? did any of it ever come? on and on and on. the fact that you now have these seven people that keep forgetting about these kind of meet thags we meetings that were down playing it and saying that is not real collusion. i think a lot of questions will have to be answered under oath. >> these are the seven people who did not disclose or reveal meetings with russians until after it was reported in the media, mike flynn, paul manafort, j.d. gordon, don
3:12 am
junior. carter page. is the meeting, itself, a problem? >> there are a couple things we need to take away from this. miss conway is not an investigator. she is wrong. there are two parts of the investigation. one is relatively easy, what happened. we know over the course of time that a lot of trump officials met with russians, for example, as you know. that's why general flynn was terminated. he sfoek wipoke with the russia ambassador. why did they meet? what is the intent ? regardless of whether mr. trump junior got information he thought was valuable, he knew he was potentially receiving information about the campaign. the other thing is the sleeze potential. do you understand what the lawyer is saying? he is saying this is inconsequential. they are just getting opposition
3:13 am
research. that lawyer needs a lesson in american morals. we are in 2020 and you are telling the chinese and the russians it is appropriate for their intelligence officers to collect negative information in advance of a campaign to pass to the campaign to take down another candidate. is that okay in america? this lawyer needs his ass kicked. i understand what he is saying for his client. but what he is saying for american politics, you can't do that. >> we have to remember the context. this was 2016, last year. russia is an enemy of the united states. rush q russia has been playing a long game in in area of hacking, cyberintrusion, trying to interfere in ukraine's election. you have manafort as a campaign manager with ties to the you
3:14 am
crain. you have michael flynn with his ties to russia. donald trump's business ties the full extent to which we do not know. donald trump's son is taking a meeting to receive potentially damaging information on hillary clinton who we knew at the time th that vladmir putin personally disliked and wanted to undercut and prevent from becoming president. you are shockingly naive or arrogant enough to believe it doesn't matter instead of getting good advice from grown-ups. or you wanted so much to get this information from wherever it came that you didn't worry about the russians and all their problems. you just wanted what you could get on hillary clinton. again, this is the kind of thing we have to learn more about. >> there is a second issue here that shouldn't be an issue for the white house. i fear that it is.
3:15 am
even if everything we have heard wind up to be bad for donald jr., he is taken out of the equation. he did nothing wrong. it casts a really bright light on why the investigation is legitimate into what russia was doing. don, junior, has clean hands. make that an assumption until you know otherwise. it still shows this is a real investigation into what russian efforts were even if the solicitation was not returned. that's a political problem for the white house. coming up on "new day," we will speak with the deputy assistant to the president. we have sebastian gorka here to talk about all in the news. 16 people have lost their lives after a u.s. military plane crashed in mississippi. the fbi is on scene trying to figure out what went wrong. we have cnn's barbara starr live
3:16 am
at the pentagon with the breaking details. not a lot is known except for the worst people of ninformatio. >> 16 people lost in this plane that crashed in mississippi. nobody knows what happened to it. it is not clear if the pilot was able to make a may day call or give any signal that the plane was in distress. the video from the ground showing the wreckage, the flames, it crashes into some sort of field or apparent agricultural area. this plane is a real work horse at the u.s. military. this marine corps plane is used for refuelling and hauls cargo and troops. it is one of the decades old work horses of the entire aviation fleet. the marine now investigating in several hours from now when they
3:17 am
are able to contact all the family members, all the next of kin. sometime after that, we will learn the name of those that perished. >> we also have other breaking news for you. federal agents and police are investigating an explosion outside of an air force recruiting center in bigsby, oklahoma. someone through a backpack that then blew up. no injuries reported senate republicans are really getting desperate to get to a yes on health care reform. what would be the basis of common ground? is this more about getting it done than what they get done. we're going to discuss the latest with our panel next.

most teens were probably vaccinated against when younger. 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.
3:22 am
senate republicans are not done with the health care battle. they are trying to get it to a vote next week. they believe they have a measure to repeal and replace. they are meeting for a lunch today. the question is, can they get these ten remaining republican centers who are against the current plan on board. let's bring back david gregory, errol louis and david drucker. the urgency, how do you see this, in terms of balancing that urgency of getting something done with getting the right thing done? >> the political imperative is so big from conservative republicans, grass roots republicans that are reminding members of congress and their senators, this is why we sent you to washington, to get rid of obama care. what you have been talking about in the senate is more of
3:23 am
obamacare light. not having that supported means they are in the position of trying to hang the repeal sign on anything they do. david and i were talking before we came on this morning, in in quiet period you don't want to count anything out from being accomplished. it seems a very difficult road. i think what is additionally difficult, i should say, is their fallback position is if they work with democrats to get something, i don't think democrats are going to participate as long as it is under the guys of any kind of repeal as opposed to just fixing. there are so many different interested parties here within the republican camp. i don't see how they get them together in this amount of time. these senators are voting no. you see all their faces and names up there. how are they going to vote on this this week? reince priebus says the president wants them to resolve
3:24 am
this, to have health care in place before the august recess. there us also some reporting that they are going to vote. how is that going to go? >> what we've seen from mitch mcconnell, if they don't have the votes, they are not going to hold the votes. we saw them from needing two to needing six and now needing ten. the number could change from there. it would be interested to test with the faces you just showed, who is up for re-election. they don't all need this as badly as the white house seems to want it. there is the promise they all made to their constituents when they said they were going to repeal and replace. there is this lurking, really big question about how to pay for the tax reform, the tax cuts they want. the other big piece of len legislation that was going to be funded by getting rid of the
3:25 am
obamacare subsidies. this is going to be a compounded problem. we are going to see this roll forward. >> some of it is specific. you would think they would take care of that by giving something to that particular senator. some of it is more comprehensive in terms of what the basic philosophy is of who is being helped and who isn't in this. for example, susan collins, from maine, the senator there, she has a bigger holistic issue with this. listen to what she says. >> i do need a complete overhaul in order to get to yes. my hope is we can avoid the mistake president obama made when he passed obama care without a single republican vote. i don't want us to pass the overhaul of the law without a single democratic vote. >> david drucker, is that
3:26 am
someone of a clarion call? if there are more susan collins out there, he has a problem. >> there are some republicans that would like this to be bipartisan. it gives them political cover. they remember keenly what happened to democrats after the obama law was passed. i think the real stick point from the policy, the thing that is really grinding the gears, is the medicaid expansion. when the affordable care act was under development, under a democratic house and democratic senate, among the things republicans wholly agreed on, not just that they were opposed to the mandate to purchase insurance. they were opposed almost unanimously. they were unanimous in opposition to expanding medicaid. for years, it has been a republican policy. whether it was block granted or
3:27 am
paired back in some fashion to account for the growth in spending and all the other entitlement programs. now, there is a split among senate republicans and house republicans generally with many wanting to keep the medicaid expansion in some cases because of the opioid abuse issue. this is causing a real problem as they move forward and try to do something. you have the political pressure which we have been talking about from the right, the fact that if they don't repeal obama care, even if it is obama care light and it is a partial repeal, if there is one thing that republican strategists who monitor the base tell me could get republicans in trouble in 2018, even in a senate election where the map is very favorable to the gop, it is the idea they weren't able to use their majorities to get done a major priority and campaign promise on such a high level and so that is competing with the policy concerns of how health care
3:28 am
could blow back at them if they don't get it right. >> here is what president trump tweeted yesterday about his dream for this. >> i cannot imagine that congress would dare to leave washington beauty a beautiful new health care bill fully approved and ready to go. what has president trump's role been in trying to rangel this together? >> just driving the bus. >> is it? or is he hands off the bus? >> you are going to get thrown underneath it. here comes the busment. >> i think he is not that involved. he is trying to urge them to do something. from the given, he has never driven this in a particular direction. in some ways, he has upset conservatives. he has taken a more pragmatic line about keeping enough of obama care. >> a republican lawmaker said to
3:29 am
me, we need less me and more we out of the white house. that tweet is evidence. he is putting it all on them. that's fair. he is the lawmaker. >> i have heard chris cuomo use that term. donald trump's meeting with the russian investigator is getting a lot of attention. how significant is this? we take a closer look. trosity. get help with hotels, free twenty-four-hour flight changes, and our price match guarantee. travelocity.® wander wisely.™

"the new york times" releasing new details about the trump campaign and a russian lawyer. they claim donald trump junior received information that he would be offered information about the clinton campaign and that the information he would get would be part of a russian government effort to boost his father's campaign. joining us now is former u.s. ambassador to nato and harvard kennedy professor, nicholas burns. ambassador, thank you for being with us. >> thank you, chris. >> do you see issues raised by the solicitation for this meeting, the acceptance of that solicitation? >> if the report is true and we don't know if it is true, it is a very, very serious report. any time anybody in our government or in a political campaign think they have information that might come from the russian government, you have to turn that over to the fbi and
3:41 am
alert them. you don't take the russians at face value. >> why? >> because russia is our strongest adversary in the world. because russia is run by a former kgb operative. you can't work. it is illegal to work with foreign entities in an election campaign. that needs to be clear to everybody involved. >> what if you don't know who you are dealing with or what information you are getting. that seems to be the early defense for don junior that i didn't know who i was meeting with. this e-mail would be disruptive of that. who knows if he read the e-mail or if he paid attention to the e-mail or if he believed the e-mail? what does that mean in terms of the analysis? >> well, i think i'm not a lawyer and obviously this is for the special counsel for robert mueller, why he is in place, he is a very credible person in washington. to be fair to donald trump junior, this all depends on whether or not the story in the
3:42 am
"new york times" that came out late last night is true. the angle you asked me about is in my domain in foreign policy. you can't work with the russian government against an american presidential candidate. if that's try, that's a serious offense. >> we seem to be getting competing versions of the truth from the white house. sanctions were not discussed at my meeting with president putin. nothing will be done until the ukrainian and syrian problems are solved. a pretty straightforward statement. sarah huckabee sanders, press secretary for the white house, then said this yesterday.
3:43 am
>> did president trump discuss sa sanctions at the g-20 summit? >> i know it was mentioned specifically. when you asked about sanctions, there is a little bit of a question there. there were sanctions specific to election meddling,ible, th i be that were discussed but not beyond that. >> that's an apparent contradiction. what do you make of it? >> the white house is in confusion. several iterations of the story. to compound it, you have a competing narrative. the essence is in. our intelligence community is sure of that. putin has denied that. you expect him to deny that given the person he is. the united states should take
3:44 am
the side of our intelligence community rather than putin. it is now in the house. the trump administration is trying to block it or drop it down. there has to be a penalty to putin. if he gets away with this, he is going to think that we are naive and that he can do this again in the 2018 mid-term elections? >> this has been a recurring issue. what actually happened? did the president ask the russian leader about sanctions or did he tell him he knows that he did it and what else was discussed. we normally in past governments did not record the meetings? we had no takers. there were senior officials. he or she would have taken
3:45 am
notes. some interpreters take notes as well. there is always a record of presidential meetings with every foreign leader, specially with a leader like the russian leader and it is very important that those minutes be quite specific. here, you have a situation where the russians are saying one thing. we are saying another. clearly, those two stories don't add up. chris, i come back to just judgment here. the president has to support his own intelligence community. what kind of a leader would he be if he disavowed them in favor of a kjb operative in the kremlin. ambassador, thank you very much for joining us as we learn more.
3:46 am
we'll come back to you for your perspective. coming up in minutes, we're going to talk with congressman, adam schiff, an important player in all this. he is the ranking member of the house permanent select committee on intelligence. what does he make of this don junior situation? another big story. democrats are calling for compromise and common sense reforms on health care. what do those look like? that's next. when i need to boo a hotel room, i want someone that makes it easy. booking.com gets it. and with their price match, i know i'm getting the best price every time. visit booking.com. booking.yeah!

the health care bill is on the brink. ten republican senators are still against the current plan. how will they change the bill to win over more votes? democratic senator, jeff murray, is joining us now, member of the foreign relations and appropriations committees. good morning, senator. >> good morning, alison. good to be with you. the democrats have always said, here we are republicans, ready twork with you, ready to compromise. republicans have pushed back on that. they said their phones aren't ringing off the hook with you guys willing to step in and help
3:51 am
in this moras that is health care. what are the two things if they called you today, the two things that you believe that you democrats and republicans could compromise on? >> the first thing is to reestablish reinsurance, which was essential for an insurance company to go into market and create competition on the exchange. a second is to lock down the cost-sharing payment that is lower the premiums and deductibles and a third would be, to take on the high cost of drugs. across america, people are just outraged about how the cost of drugs are driving up the cost of health care. >> what is the impediment? >> those sound commonsensical. have you picked up the phone and called your republican colleagues and suggested that? >> i have had many conversations about these types of pieces. the fact is that the heart of the republican bill is dismantling medicaid. what would that mean for my state? 400 people would use health care. we are not going to help
3:52 am
dismantle the health care system but make it work better. that's what they want us to do, work in a bipartisan way to solve the problem. >> you have called it diabolical because of those numbers. you put on a facebook post that you felt that this was a diabolical plan, because it would leave 22 million americans, including 400,000 oregonians off the roles. you hear what republicans say every day. they come on our program and say that obama care is failing and that health care costs have spiraled for people and their premiums have gone up. it is just an untenable situation. >> over the last three days, i have had rural parts of oregon, republican parts of oregon, held a number of town halls, main street walks. what i hear is, jeff, thank you for saving our health care system. one out of three individuals in rural oregon is on the oregon held plan, which is medicaid. if the republicans would talk to
3:53 am
their constituents, they would find out that people want peace of mind that they are covered and can get coverage. the premiums are still too high on the exchange. the republicans are making it worse by the cost sharing and insurance program. it destris the veoys the very t are trying to keep. from chuck schumer, we stand ready to work on these and other reforms of the current system and urge you to join us in advancing measures that would have an immediate impact on improving health care for americans, advancing these measures and these reforms. which ones is he talking about? >> the same sorts of things i'm discussing, how to make the marketplace work right and how to lower the premiums and deductibles and how to make it easy and more stress-free as you move from one health care plan to another.
3:54 am
>> what i'm hearing in the conservative parts of my state that i lost by 30%, 40%, what i'm hearing is the system is way too stressful. i have been asking each audience, how many people here ten years ago would have supported a single payieer? it is a small number. i asked how many now. the hands go up. people are so stressed about the complexity and difficulty of our health care system. can we make this simpler? >> what's going to happen here, senator? the president is pushing republicans to get this done, certainly before the august recess. there are ten republicans currently who say no to what exists but it sounds like mitch mcconnell is still at it, and that they are still trying to cobble something together. >> senator cruz says he has to have his amendment that
3:55 am
dismantles the ability to have common pricing and protection against pre-existing conditions. that would eadvice serrate the essential benefits philosophy where a health care policy is a policy that covers something. the press has criticized fake news. we have a pathway to fake insurance. we have insurance policies that are not worth the money they are printed on. the young and healthy get simple policies that cover virtually nothing and death spiral and high cost policies for folks older that have medical conditions. the cruz amendment is a huge mistake. i think a lot of moderate republicans are saying that they can't support something like that. i don't think there us a pathway. >> you see no vote happening this week or before august. >> there is always surprises.
3:56 am
>> i don't see right now that there is a pathway to get the 50 votes that the majority leader needs. that's a good thing for america. at some point, maybe the republican leadership will keep running such a partisan charade and decide to make the health care system work better. >> thank you very much for being on new day. >> you're welcome. >> let's get to chris. >> thanks to you, our international viewers. for you, "cnn newsroom" is next. for our u.s. viewers, several people linked to president trump's campaign meeting with a russian lawyer as the white house adamantly pushes back. new developments. will be that one... rogue... cloud. get help with hotels, free twenty-four-hour flight changes, and our price match guarantee. travelocity.® wander wisely.™
