much. ♪ no legal violation for the media. >> this is a story that keeps eating away at the credibility of the president. >> why is it lie after lie after lie? if you clean, come on clean. ty cobb is powerful washington, d.c. defense attorney. he is now expected to oversee the white house response to the russia investigation. >> we are going to repeal and replace obamacare. >> republican senator john mccain recovering from eye surgery will not perform any official duties all next week. donald trump was in paris this week. he met the french president's macron's wife and said you are in such great shape. if ed that to you, would you be flattered or offended? >> i be taken aback. i wonder if she could say the
same of him? this is "new day weekend" with victor blackwell and christi paul. i hope sunday is good to you today. thank you for spending some time with us this morning here. we are talking about a lot of things when it comes to washington. the russian scandal, the intense battle over health care. stalling the president's agenda. and taking a hefty toll, it seem, on the president's approval rating. >> according to a new poll from "the washington post" and abc news 36% of likelily voters say president trump is doing a good job and 58% disapprove. this comes as president trump deal with the fallout of a secret meeting his son and campaign aideses held with the russians. they are since paid $50,000 to a law firm that is now defending donald trump jr. also from memos to a memoir. the man once at the helm of the russian investigation is writing a book about his public service
now. what fired fbi director james comey could share. >> health care off track again. overnight, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell putting the brake on this week's planned vote after word that senator john mccain is recovering from surgery to remove a blood clot. the senate cannot afford to lose even one vote, so the voting will be delayed on that plan. with me now is cnn politics report eugene scott and cnn contributor and ethics czar in the obama administration, norm eyeson. mr. ambassador, let knee me start with you. a new official stadium via twitter from the president defending his son donald trump jr. my son don is scorned by the fake news media. that coming within the last few
minutes on twitter. for the first question given during a debate, someone lost a job. there was an investigation for the 33,000 e-mails. this is now an investigation into this potential or possible collusion with russia and what we are learning is not fake news because it's been disclosed by his son-in-law, his also senior adviser, and his son. >> well, victor, thanks for having me. and i have to say that the president's tweet is unseemly. he is the chief law enforcement officer and this situation is a very serious one. the e-mail trail between don jr. and mr. goldstone make clear that there was an enthusiastic embrace of what was described as a russian government effort to aid the trump campaign and to
hurt hillary clinton. that raises a host of legal issues under american law. campaign finance violations, possible conspiracy relating to the computer fraud statutes. a host of other legalish. so the president should be allowing the investigation to proceed, not slandering it. it's ridiculous to say that passing a debate question is illegal. >> eugene, let me come to you about what this exposes and still the major challenging of this incoming attorney ty cobb who is joining the white house staff is to control the message. if you've got the president waking up 6:30 eastern starting to tweet about this investigation, that, i would assume, does not fall in line with where ty cobb wants the white house messaging to go? >> i would imagine that is the case, victor. but if ty cobb has been paying attention to the president
before he came on board, he certainly realizes he did not control donald trump when it comes to social media. i think one of the big challenges that the president's team has faced in responding to this is that the message they want to put out is quite an incomplete message which forces the media, appoinopponents and republicans to go on the record to clarify things. for example, he tweets about trump jr. in e-mails. the reality is that it's very important is that it was not just trump jr. attending this meeting. it was his campaign manager, as well as a current white house adviser to the president himself and as we have learned, other people. so the reality is when the president tweets things that are not completely true, he keeps this story in the news because the new has to clarify it. >> ambassador, let's move on to jared kushner who is of the three campaign official who were in the room the only one who is part of the administration. you believe that it's unlikely
due to the nature and what we are learning about the number of people in the room, up to eight, that he is unlikely forgot about this meeting and opens him up to liability with regard to false statements. is that something that can be proven, that he didn't simply forget? >> well, the special council, bob mueller, will make that assessment based on all of the evidence, victor. he'll look at the nature of this e-mail that was forwarded to mr. kushner. we know that and it says in the subject line, clinton/russia. so he'll need to assess whether this is the kind of meeting that mr. kushner would have forgotten or not. reportedly, a hundred foreign meetings have been added to kushner's filings with the united states for his security clearance. the false statements liability
is significant. and, remember, often when with prosecutors feel that something wrong has happened, but they can't prove the underlying case, they believe mr. kushner was involved perhaps, at the end, if the evidence shows it in the computer fraud, they go after the false statements. and so i think there's a serious worry here. i think mr. cukushner is probab not sleeping easily these days. >> had he a shift in his legal team as well this weekend. eugene, let me talk to you about the latest abc news/"the washington post" numbers that show that 48% of respondents disapprove strongly of the president's job in office so far which is up from the polling in april. is the russia controversy at the center of that? or on is it potentially something else? >> it app to be not just the russian controversy but the multiple levels of it, right? so when we talk about russia in the past, we usually can
pinpoint one thing. for example, maybe around january or february when you thought of russia you might have thought of michael flynn. i think what it's leading about 48% of americans not to trust president donald trump at all is that there seems to be multiple layers to this russia situation and the past week is a perfect example when we got at least three different stories in as many days regarding this specific meeting. as people find out more information, more information that comes public, there are nor questions that the american people have. >> mr. ambassador, before we let you go i want to talk about health care now we know this potential vote will be pushed back. we know that you were an opponent of the senate bill, the first one that came out and now a revised bill with the cruz amendment. i want to read for you something that trump campaign economic adviser steven more now a cnn economic analyst wrote for cnn.com. it's smart and doesn't take
anything away from anyone. if you want obamacare you can have it. you can have the subsidies and exchanges supposed to saved 2500 family it's there for you. your response to what we are hearing from stephen moore? >> well, i have to disagree with my friend steve moore. let's not look at those who are on either side of the issue. let's look at the congressional budget office estimates. these plans, both of them, i think the second plan is a little altered, are going to throw ten of millions of americans off of the health care that is currently available. there is no question that the aca, obamacare, need to be fixed. it ought to be fix inside a bipartisan way. things that need to be done. it's basically working.
i think the president's questioning has caused it to suffer, but i don't think the new bill is a step in the right direction. they are going the wrong way making it more partisan. the proof of that is, at the moment, they don't have the votes to move the bill this week. it's hanging by a thread. one more republican defection, they won't be able to get a vote on the bill even to discuss the bill, so i think they are going the wrong direction. let's work on it in a bipartisan way. >> we will have to see if any of the problems that some of these republicans senators had with the first senate health care bill are resolved by the second one. eugene scott and norm eisen, thank you both. >> thank you, victor. two. coming up on "state of the union" this morning, mark warner and suture collins and jay sekulow.
today at 9:00 a.m. only on cnn. james comey who was fired by president trump is shopping a new book deal. brian stelter will be talking about this. >> all of the major publishing house with set to be keenly interested in what comey has to say. this could be a multimillion dollar detail. i'll have the details in a few minutes. also, more fallout over president trump's compliments of the french first lady about hers looks. this time australia's foreign minister weighs in. >> i wonder if she could say the same of him? a rare insight into the life of isis told by their former bride. what attracted them to the terror group in the first place and what happened once they got there. >> a look to the european men that they are here and isis, they are strong men, you know, with guns they can protect them. it's an idea that is just like movies.

former fbi director to author james comey writing a book about his time in public service. >> he is known for his meticulous memos. what else will he say about the 2016 presidential election and a lot of people including myself will be wanting to read what he is willing to talk about in this public book. >> he had only one public hearing where he spoke about his experiences with president trump and being fired. we haven't heard anything else from james comey but now we know the book deal is in the works. "the new york times" is reporting they are working on a pitch to publishers. it's going to go out the next few days. the way this works, guys, when you are an a. lister like james comey or a former president with a big story to tell all of the publishing houses try to bid
four book and essentially the highest winner will win. according to the times it won't be a tell-all. it's going to be about comey's entire career, not just his time with president trump but shortly even a few pages about president trump will be of great interest to people. even if this doesn't come out for a year or two. >> all right. listen. we want to shift gears here. we saw something on fox news that we don't normally see, the shepard smith this week. let's listen here together. >> what is it lie after lie after lie? if you clean, come on clean. you know? my grandmother used to say when first we practice oh, oh, what a tangled web we weave when we practice to deceive. the deception, chris, is mind boggling and people out there who believe were making it up and one day realize we are not and look around and go where are we and why are we getting told all of these lies?
passion there. "the washington post" is calling than a cronkite moment. what are you hearing? >> this is unusual on fox news because most of the hosts on fox really all of the opinion hosts are pro-trump and are expressing support making excuses in some cases for don jr. and trying to explain away this evidence of don jr.'s willingness to collude. i think shepard smith is a news anchor at the network. he is known for his independent streak but this moment in particular was striking because i think he is expressing what most of the country is wondering, why all of the misleading statements? however, i think we got to recognize because of the dominant narrative of conservatives being don jr. is a victim this is a blame game that russia did not actually interfere. you have to look at the poll and see how it's affecting the
country. "the washington post" and abc news say 80% of democrats believe the same thing. there is a big partisan gap even in basic beliefs whether russia was trying to to support donald trump and that is at least, in part, a result of fox news and other conservative media coverage of the story. >> brian stelter, good to hear from you. >> thanks. >> he is not going anywhere. you can catch brian on "reliable sources" at 11:00 a.m. eastern today on cnn. democrats are taking kid rock's senate run plans seriously. the singer, whose name is robert ritchie, tweeted his announcement this week and his intentions responding to questions about what appears to be his campaign website. his tweet insists this is not a joke. some people still believe it is. senator elizabeth warren responded to the announcement in an e-mail to her supporters saying this.
well, maybe this is all a joke but we all thought donald trump was joking when he rode down the escalator at trump tower and announced his campaign too. was president trump out of line when he commented on the first lady of france's looks? two close confidants of pope frances are blasting evangelical support of donald trump. why they describe some voters as, quote, combatants with zen owe phobic envision? >> the white water investigation unfolds and hillary clinton is the interest of prosecutor's. >> the first lady arrived and there were vocal supporters and detractors. >> the first time this has happened. >> she was subpoenaed by the
independent council kenneth starr who wants to ask her about those missing law firm billing records that mysteriously disappeared. >> kenneth starr who is doing nothing except investigating you. if you have anything to hide on, that is not a situation you want to be in. we're on to you, diabetes. time's up, insufficient prenatal care. and administrative paperwork... your days of drowning people are numbered. same goes for you, budget overruns. and rising costs, wipe that smile off your face. we're coming for you, too. for those who won't rest until the world is healthier, neither will we. optum. how well gets done. it's my decision to make it's nbeauty last.ix. roc® retinol started
it all adds up to our most reliable network ever. one that keeps you connected to what matters most. a senate vote on the republican health care bill has been delayed because senator john mccain is in arizona recovering from surgery. >> president trump's agenda stalls and the rusch controversy swirls, a new "the washington post" poll show the president's approval dropping to 36%. also we are learning the president's re-election campaign
paid money to his son's legal team. do you remember this moment from the president's trip to paris? >> beautiful. >> australian foreign minister julie bishop is among those criticizing president trump for his remarks to the first lady of france this week. watch this. >> if ed that to you would you be flattered or offended? >> i would be taken aback, i think. it's a rather interesting comment to make. i wonder if she could say the same of him? >> president trump often lean on his base of evangelical supporters as his support. but two close confidants and pope france are blasting trump and his supporters what the
religious leaders called a vision that they wrote this. daniel burke, cnn religion editor, with is us now. first of all, talk to us about that statement. >> well, it's really a remarkable article, christi. as you mentioned, it's written by two men who are pretty close to this pope so we don't know if this is what the pope thinks but know the people talking to the pope think this. it calls out steve bannon, the president's adviser, by name for creating an apocalyptic battle and says the union between catholics and evangelicals in american politics is built on hatred of other groups.
they call them a community of combatants at one point and what the article makes a point this is really contrary to the way the pope thinks who is trying to build bridges to other groups and particularly muslims at a time when divisions between religions is really dangerous. so the article makes a point that as the u.s., evangelicals and catholics continue down this road it could get more dangerous. >> the father explained what he meant behind his words to "american" magazine and i want to read what he said, quote. daniel, on some level, hasn't religion always influenced, in some way, or manipulated
politic, even though they are supposed to be separate? >> oh, sure. if you remember the first people, the first colonists who came to the united states came strictly because of religion. they set up thee oklahoma rasy in the united states, the first pilgrim. this has always been a threat within american politic. i think what father spadaro is looking at this through a european lens and saying maybe it's time for the catholics and evangelicals in the united states to rethink them and for them to take a step back from politics. it's unusual to hear a catholic priest to make an argument. this is not an argument that the pope has made. he wants catholics to bring their values to the polls. so i would liked him to delve into that argument a little bit more and show how pope frances himself exemplified what he is asking, for the separation of church and state. >> daniel, is there a gauge of
how expansive the evangelical support is for donald trump and do they believe donald trump to be a true christian? >> well, the second question, part of the question, i'm not sure. but the first part is, according to surveys, white evangelicals, two-thirds back him, according to an april poll. they support the job he is doing. he often presents himself as the protector of evangelicals when he specials to evangelical groups, he says as long as i'm president, no one is ever going to stop you from praying and no one is ever going to stop you from speaking in the manner that you want to. but you can make the argument that evangelicals also protect this president and while his approval ratings among some groups have been slipping among evangelicals, they certainly have not. two-thirds still approve of the way that he is doing his job as president. >> all righty. daniel burke, we appreciate the conversation. thank you. >> thanks. some women in silicon valley are now talking about sexual harassment there. next, we are going to hear from
six women who gave cnn their firsthand accounts. >> it was about ego and power. >> it was a moment that i felt my leg being grabbed under the table, that i thought, holy molle, this is real! also, the woman who wanted to marry issuing sis fighters. were they he tricked with false promises? were they willing partners in horrific crimes? we are taking to you a refuge camp next where many are being held and they are telling us quite the stories. i love how usaa gives me the peace of mind and the security just like the marines did. at one point, i did change to a different company with car insurance, and i was not happy with the customer service. we have switched back over and we feel like we're back home now. the process through usaa is so effortless, that you feel like you're a part of the family. i love that i can pass the membership to my children, and that they can be protected. we're the williams family, and we're usaa members for life. call usaa today to talk about your insurance needs.

point out that these women have not been charged in what is essentially a lawless area. they have been rounded up as isis sympathizers until authorities can figure out what to do with them. >> reporter: don't kid yourself. they saw the video, girls, mothers, some who neared isis who knew what they were about but still came. now jailed in a refuge camp, stock in limbo as isis collapses and trying to go home, they want your pity and that you believe them when they say it was all, all of it, a huge mistake. >> they use women for sex? >> yeah. it's very disgusting. >> reporter: three indonesian sisters paid thousands of dollars to get here and lured by the free health care and schools and had to sell off their jewelry and paying thousands to guess smuggled out. it wasn't what they expected. >> they had they want to jihad

grabbed under a table and thought, holy moly, this is real. >> we are sitting at a starbucks and he grabs my face and tries it make out with me. i hate so say i think it's the norm and we can change that. in 2001 the environment was a lot different because of the dot com crashed so i was faced with raising more money or letting go of employees. so one time, i had a meeting with a potential vc, one of the more powerful ones out there and he ordered a $5,000 bottle ever wine. i couldn't remember how many times the glass got filled. all of a sudden, he was conveying to me how attracted he was to me. turned over to kiss me and i pulled away. i'll never forget when he touched me under the table and looking into my eyes and grabbed the leg and squeezed it and say, you know, i'm going to help you, i'm going to do this for you.
as if he was my savior or something. and, at the same time, he is violating me. >> i was lucky enough to have an adviser or mentor who had never expressed any romantic or sexual interest in me and we were lirl work liltly working on spreads sheets. at the end of that working side-by-side at the computer he pulled out his erect penis and it was awkward! it was uncomfortable. it was unfair but it happened and it wasn't the last time something like that would happen. >> when he did that, it made me fee disgust feel disgusted and demoralized and disrespected. >> like i had no business as a woman in business. >> all of my accomplishments. i already raised 5 million dollars in venture funding and like none of that mattered. >> reporter: many of the women we spoke with talked about
wanting better reporting standards for anyone wanting to speak out. the idea to make it yaer for women to come forward is there not an hr department when can comes to these firms. when its comes out it's about accountability and creating a structure for change and moving that die loll forward. >> laurie, thank you for that story. past three weeks two silicon executives who resigned over allegations of sexual harassment. for more you can visit our page at cnn tech.com/sexual harassment. a terminally ill child at the center of a controversial case in the uk is raisie ing questions about the quality of life. we will speak with a child welfare specialist and look where this may go this week. stay close. hey you've gotta see this. c'mon.

o.j. simple sorn will go before a nevada parole board. he spent nine years. simpson, 70 years old, was getting a taste of payback after his acquittal from the nicole simpson and ron goldman murders some say. doctors there say he's not going to survive this illness. his parents say let's give him an experimental treatment acres
shot. but this experimental treatment is in the u.s. doctors say it's not in charlie's best interest. in a glimmer of hope, a neurologist from columbia's university medical center is being allowed to fly to london to assess his condition this week. a certificated child welfare law specialist is with us this morning. good morning. thank you for walking us through here. what do you think it is that changed the judge's mind, first of all? was it the public pressure put on this case? >> i don't know if it was public pressure or not. it might have been. i do think what made a difference was there was a doctor from the united states who said there's a 10% chance that this experimental treatment can improve the condition of the child. so, i think that pressure said, okay, let's do this and see if perhaps that's an option. >> i had heard it was an 11% to 56% chance. >> and it may have changed. >> depending on -- that was the last percentage that came out on friday about this. but that's still -- even that sounds risky. >> i think it is risky. bottom line, it comes down,
should a parent be able to decide what medical treatment to pursue, even if it's experimental for a terminally ill child? in london, the court is allowed to intercede saying, no, parent, you're not allowed to make that decision. we're allowed to make that decision because the hospital didn't support you. the hospital now supports the parent in saying, okay, it's worth exploring this treatment to see if it's an option. and once that happened, the court said okay, we're going to let you do it. >> so the hospital, in a sense, really drove where this was going to go? >> absolutely. and under uk law, that's what happens. the hospital can say we're speaking for this child that cannot speak on its own behalf and saying it's best to take the child off life support u don't agree, parent, we're going to go to the high court. >> there was an interesting moment, i think it was friday, when the parents were all in court and an argument was being made that the parents should not be part of that initial meeting
between the doctor from the u.s. that is going there, hirono, and the rest of the british team. they were saying maybe the parents shouldn't be in this first meeting because they may not be able to speak freely with the parents there. at that point you had the mother shaking her head in court saying, no, i understand what's going on. what would -- do you see, in any way that the parents should or should not be in that meeting? >> right. from my perspective as working with children, think as a parent if your child is in the hospital and you are excluded from a meeting that has to do with the health of your child who is terminally ill. to me that, is appalling, right? in the united states you're going to say, no, it's my child. i have a right to be there and i'm going to be there, no matter what. from that perspective, the right thing to do is let the parents be there. >> we'll see if that happens. we know that dr. hirono is there, meeting with the baby and
