3:01 am
island of dominica overnight. we are also following major new developments in the russia investigation. cnn is reporting exclusively that the u.s. government wiretapped former trump campaign chairman paul manafort because of concerns that he was communicating with russian operatives who wanted to influential the 2016 election. in a few hours, president trump will make his debut speech before the united nations general assembly. they say, quote, it will be deeply philosophical and includes warnings for north korea and iran. and what house speaker paul ryan calls the best last chance for republicans to repeal and replace obamacare. complete coverage of all of this, starting with chad myers, with the latest, chad, on hurricane maria. >> now a category 5. at 5:00, the 5:00 advisory, probably posted everywhere, said category 4. and that was a category 4 for ten minutes until the hurricane
3:02 am
hunter aircraft flew through it and found a gust at 160. therefore, now, we're back up to category 4 aga5 again. it just went right over dominica. it was a devastating hit. the prime minister there saying we need help of all kinds. it was a devastating storm. the storm is still very powerful, moving into open water again. it got a little torn up over dominica, a little bit, but now back up into that warm water. where is the next hit? st. croix, puerto rico. about 155-mile-per-hour category 4 about to make landfall somewhere near puerto rico this time tomorrow. st. croix and all the u.s. virgin islands still inside the cone. some of the latest models in the overnight hours very close to the northeast corner of puerto rico. very few on the south side going toward ponce. we see this storm continue to move out into the atlantic, it
3:03 am
takes a right-hand turn up toward the caicos and maybe toward bermuda. nothing so far today is over toward america, toward florida or even into north carolina. the american interest today are the u.s. virgin islands and puerto rico. this will be the area that will be very hard hit over the next few days as the storm goes by. wind gusts, i don't care if where will do tremendous damage to puerto rico. devastating rainfall could be 15" with heavy rain, mud slides and torrential flooding across that island. alisyn? >> chad, we'll check in with you as often as possible to see what those models are doing. thank you very much. puerto rico is now bracing for a direct hit from hurricane maria. category 5 storm is expected to hit the island tomorrow. nick valencia is live in san juan, puerto rico, with more. what are you seeing, nick?
3:04 am
>> reporter: good morning, alisyn. we're more than 25 hours away from that direct landfall, expected to be here in this island territory. and the weather is already a factor here on the island. just take a look at this on the beach right now. blue skies are out there. there are some clouds in the distance. those waves are starting to swell. what we felt all morning long are the sustained wind gusts. it was a very ominous warning yesterday from the governor of puerto rico who says we should not expect a miracle here. this is not expected to change. we should expect this to land at either a category 4 or 5 when it ends up hitting. we understand it's being reported some basic food is being rationed, baby formula, batteries. the governor wants to make sure that everyone has access to those. 500 shelters have already been set up. the expectation and the impact is expected to be dire here, as those wind speeds continue to increase. lot of anxiety. not much time has passed from hurricane irma. and in our conversations with
3:05 am
residents, it's very evident with them that they're as nervous as the government officials were yesterday in their press conference. alisyn, john. >> nick valencia in puerto rico, watching this very closely. meantime, cnn exclusive. cnn sources say u.s. investigators wiretapped chairman paul manafort before and after the election. evan perez and pamela brown broke this story. we have the breaking details about why the government was listening to someone so close to the president. evan perez joins us now. evan, a big scoop. what are you learning? >> good morning, john. sources tell us that the fbi got permission from the secret surveillance court to monitor paul manafort, former trump campaign chairman before and after the election. this is an extraordinary step for the fbi to do surveillance on a high-ranking official. manafort is now at the center of the russian probe.
3:06 am
raising concerns about whether manafort was encouraging russia to help with the campaign. special mueller's team now has been provided all these communications. >> evan, what do they mean by encouraging the russians? >> there's a lot we don't know, alisyn, about exactly what was said. we're told the fbi has communications between suspected russian operatives, relaying what they claimed were discussions with manafort as well as communications involving manafort himself. none of this has amounted to what people would consider a smoking gun in this investigation. there's still work being done as to whether there's a criminal violation here. we didn't get a comment from paul manafort's spokesman. he has denied communicating with russian operatives and also denied helping russia undermine u.s. interests. >> the timing here is crucial.
3:07 am
two separate time periods where he was monitored. explain that. >> yeah. there was a secret order that began after manafort became the subject of an fbi investigation in 2014 that centered on work done by a group of consulting firms here in washington for ukraine's former ruling party, according to sources we've talked to. the surveillance was discontinued for lack of now sources we talk to say the second warrant was part of the fbi's investigation to figure out these ties between trump campaign associates and suspected russian operatives. it's unclear when the new warrant started. as part of this fisa warrant we learned earlier this year the fbi conducted a search of a storage facility belonging to manafort. of course, we know this past july the fbi raided his home in
3:08 am
virginia. >> evan, do we know whether manafort was speaking to president trump or president-elect trump at that time? >> we're told by sources that the president and manafort were still talking well after the campaign was over. during that time, the fbi was listening to manafort's phone. it's possible those conversations were collected. >> and, evan, the question here is, of course, president trump claimed he was being wire tapped by the government. >> right. >> any proof of that? >> well, you know, the justice department has denied that the president's own lines were tapped. as we said, it is possible that he was pick ed up on the manafot surveillance. he does have a residence in trump tower. it's not clear what type of surveillance the fbi did, or if they did any of it there. we've seen the government
3:09 am
respond and said they won't confirm or deny there's a fisa warrant on any of this. >> what does all of this mean for mueller's investigation? >> look, the investigation appears to be accelerating, that's for sure. manafort is a major focus of this investigation especially because of financial issues, tax issues that the government says they've uncovered. we'll see whether or not this information really becomes something that they can use to try to, perhaps, flip him and perhaps get him to cooperate and provide additional information on this russian investigation. >> evan, thank you very much for all of this exclusive reporting and sharing it with us and explaining it to us. obviously, we'll check back in with you. let's bring in our panel to dissect and explain this better. cnn senior legal analyst jeffrey toobin and maggie haberman. jeffrey? >> good morning. >> what does this all mean? >> to step back it means it's a very aggressive investigation.
3:10 am
in white collar cases it is unusual to have wiretaps. it's unusual to execute search warrants of people's homes. the mueller investigation has now done both of these. obviously the key fact that we don't know is what was disclosed on these tapes and what did manafort say? >> doesn't the wiretapping predate mueller? that was before the mueller investigation. >> that is true. >> that means that somebody, the fbi -- >> it's the same fbi. it's the same group of fbi agents working on it. >> but it's james comey? >> correct. ultimately, he was the supervisor of it all. >> okay. >> but it means that manafort has been investigated intensively for a very long time, including when he was very close to the president, president-elect, candidate trump. and the question is, what was disclosed? the other point worth making is it's not just that simple to get a warrant like this, a fisa
3:11 am
warrant. that means the fbi, twice, had to assemble an enormous amount of information, saying to a judge, look, there is probable cause to believe that paul manafort is an agent of foreign intelligence. they persuaded a judge twice. so there does exist considerable evidence. it doesn't mean he's guilty of anything. it is important. >> to emphasize two things you said there that i think are worthy of stating again. number one, there are tapes now in someone's possession of these conversations that paul manafort had. that is not something we knew beforehand. >> surveillance means, by definition, there are tapes. they weren't just listening. >> there are recordings. >> when you get a fisa warrant you get permission to make tapes of phone calls. >> that's the big deal. they are presumably in the hands of the mueller investigation. you bring up the point that this happened twice. the second time, it indicates that probably there was something found that first time
3:12 am
or they had reason to go back? it indicates that the investigation was picking things up? >> yes. and you don't -- it is -- it's not unprecedented but two separate fisa warrants almost certainly indicates that a continuing investigation was at least somewhat productive. >> well, sort of, except as we understand it from cnn's reporting, it was stopped. the first fisa warrant surveillance was stopped because of lack of evidence or they weren't getting traction. and then something happened, maybe something new. >> right. >> that allowed them to go back and get a second fisa. >> the way fisa warrants work, every 90 days you have to renew it. and sometimes the judge says you don't have enough to renew it. sometimes the government says we want to take a break and then come back. so, again, i don't want to speculate too much about what happened. but two separate fisa warrants on the same person, it's unusual and it's suggestive of a productive investigation. >> maggie, you've been waiting patiently here.
3:13 am
>> that's okay. take it away. >> no, no. >> supporters of donald trump point out here, look, the president was right. he was being wiretapped. no, paul manafort was being wiretapped, number one. there appears to be this gap. >> that's really important. >> where manafort wasn't being surveiled. >> an important thing when i was watching the cnn story and watching angry twitter. we don't know when that gap took place specifically. it did appear it was essentially during the time manafort was in charge of the campaign. that was a very brief period, essentially four months. and then it started again, it sounded like in the fall or late august. he was gone by august 10th or 12th, something like that. that continued then into earlier this year. after both had sound like had been told, the president and paul manafort by lawyers, you need to stop communicating and
3:14 am
they were still communicating. >> hold on, maggie. it sounds like the president was right. if paul manafort has a residence in trump tower and paul manafort was being surveiled and wiretapped, trump tower was wiretapped. >> no, it wasn't. >> how do you know? >> well, i don't know, but what we know is that -- unless you're saying that he owns every single thing in trump tower. >> that's what i'm saying. >> people who own their coops or condos in that building. number two, he used that tweet to suggest that the surveillance was political and his word was witch hunt. to jeffrey's point it was a fisa court warrant. >> hold on a second. to go back to the original tweet march 4th at 6:35 a.m., obviously president trump heard something, maybe from officials. >> this is actually an important point. there's two questions here. one is whether he read this in breitbart, which had a piece
3:15 am
being pushed around, somebody put on his desk or whether he knew from something internal within his own government. >> yeah. >> that raises its own questions. >> let me just go back. >> no, but if he was told that, that raises other questions, too, about propriety of information. >> all true. however, here is the tweet. terrible! just found out that obama had my wires tapped in trump tower just before the victory. nothing found. this is mccarthyism. >> why is whether he was right in some form on that tweet more important than what the information is showing? >> because everyone poo-poo'd -- this was so out of left field it was like where is this coming? >> it says my wires were tapped. >> trump tower. >> the mortgage company that owns my house, if my phones are tapped -- >> public space in trump tower that does not belong to donald trump. >> to add another point to this, most wiretaps at this point are
3:16 am
of cell phones. i don't know whether manafort's hard line or his cell phone but very likely it was his cell phone. most people operate on their cell phone these days. his phocell phone goes with him. it's not trump tower at all. >> i hear you. i'm just saying when this first came out, everybody said whoa, this is out of left field. the president sounds crazy. >> that's a legitimate response. >> suddenly it sounds like there's more credence to it. >> i disagree with the interpretation, number one. and number two, when the president of the united states says something like that, the obligation is on him to explain why he's saying this. >> agreed. >> he didn't do that. everybody said what are you talking about, of course they did. that was a really loaded, serious charge. if true, and his own justice department has explored it and said it wasn't true. >> that's interesting. that is an interesting point. and we have that as well. >> maggie needs -- i mean, it's not that those of us in the fake news business poo poo'd it. it was the government itself.
3:17 am
>> this is interesting. fbi director, james comey, who would have been aware of this. >> certainly would have known. >> at the time this is what he testified to. listen to this. >> i have no information that supports those tweets and we have looked carefully inside the fbi. the department of justice has asked me to share with you that the answer is the same for the department of justice and all its components. the department has no information that supports those tweets. >> look, to me it indicates because there's no information that trump's phones, my phones were tapped he can say that easily. i do want to get back to paul manafort. >> but that's significant. >> it wasn't just comey. recent justice department statement. >> september 1st. >> yes, that's still headed by jeff sessions, presidential ally. >> i want to talk about paul manafort. there was reporting in new yo"nk times" that said he was going to be indicted.

3:22 am
front door and raided his virginia home. they took binders and even photographed expensive suits in his closet. the special counsel then followed the house search with a warning, his prosecutors told him they planned to indict him. the special counsel's office told manafort they planned to indict him? is that normal par for the course of the investigation? >> it's not all that unusual. it's a former process called getting a target letter where your lawyer is informed you're likely to be indicted. how exactly this information was conveyed, perhaps may be unusual. but the fact that someone is about to be indicted is not an unusual thing to be told. it is also almost certainly followed by an indictment. the fbi, the u.s. attorneys, federal prosecutors don't make
3:23 am
idle threats. that is sort of part of the culture. if they told him he's likely to be indicted he's likely to be indicted. >> it also sounded from your paper, maggie, in the "new york times" that this is the shock and awe tactic to scare paul manafort, he may be indicted, he may not. this is the aggressive way that robert mueller's folks are doing things. >> i don't think they would have told him he would be indicted if it was simply about freaking him out. mueller, we've been hearing this for weeks, is using very aggressive tactics to go after -- he is not keeping this particularly narrow search so far, right? we had the president give a warning shot to mueller in an interview that my colleagues and i did with him in july, essentially crossing a line into his family or finances, that was the president's red line, so to speak. it's not clear exactly where he's going on that. it is clear that mueller is not just keeping this specifically on russia. we don't know yet. we know what the cnn reporting said about what manafort was
3:24 am
overheard discussing loosely maybe. we don't really know what else he is looking at in terms of manafort. >> i'm not trying to be cute, jeffrey, but it seems like a big deal if president trump's former campaign chair is about to be indicted. >> you are cute, john, but it is a big deal. i mean, this guy is very close to the president. he has been wire tapped at a time he was speaking to the president. he was involved in the creation of the republican platform, which became more friendly to russia, during his tenure as head of the campaign. i mean, this is a very big deal. >> very close to the president. >> he is obviously a crucial figure if you believe that there is warrant to investigate collusion into the trump campaign and those affiliated with russia. >> the president has tried to distance himself from paul
3:25 am
manafort. saying he's some guy -- >> i didn't know him. >> he worked here for a very short time. it is troo true he worked there for a very short time. >> okay but still the campaign chair. >> haven't spoken to him in a long time. he was with the campaign for a very, very short period of time. so, i mean, if he's -- look, we know that mueller's investigation is continuing at a rapid clip. he doesn't like long, lingering investigations. we don't know when we could see something with paul manafort. it does seem clear that that's the route that bob muchlt eller is pursuing. >> or one of the routes. the president and manafort were talking, it sounded like not unregularly. the president loves reaching out to people he has fired or in some way semi humiliated by taking away their jobs, pining for mike flynn after he fired him. reaching out to steve bannon, reince priebus, to keep people feeling good, as if they're
3:26 am
still in his good stead. i have to wonder if the calls were of that nature. i do want to talk about trump's tweets and whether he knew. i agree generally and broadly that the tone of coverage of trump can often be very inflammatory and can treat everything as if it is the same in reaction to trump. i do think a president claiming i was wiretapped during the campaign. i just learned this. requires the president to offer up some evidence. >> agreed. >> to explain what he's talking about. it does not necessarily mean that at least half the coverage after something semi-related to it should then be reverse engineered as an example of it. >> right. in the scope of this, in the midst of his former campaign chair possibly being indicted soon by the special counsel's office, the president's legal team is doing what? they're arguing out loud. >> they're having lunch. >> at a steakhouse near "the new york times," being overheard. >> i went to law school. they don't tell you to do that.
3:27 am
they don't tell you to have loud conversations. no. i mean, you know, there are two big things here. obviously it was inappropriate to do this in close quarters near, you know, where ken vogle -- >> and good for ken for being an aggressive on the spot reporter. >> an expensive lunch. >> that actually struck me. i'm impressed he was eating in a fancy place like that. but the fact that lawyers in the white house were debating how much to cooperate, there's nothing particularly extraordinary about that. that comes up in all these white house investigations. you know, the clinton white house started out, we're going to cooperate with kenneth star and then they wound up fighting him in court over stloesu udisc evidence. that kind of dynamic is going on here as well. >> isn't this a little too convenient, maggie? not to go too far down the
3:28 am
conspiracy rabbit hole but isn't it convenient for two white house lawyers to have a loud conversation at a popular steakhouse doors down from "the new york times"? >> it would have required they would know that ken vogle was sitting there and disbelief by one of the lawyers, ty cobb, who was last heard responding to a dummied accounts by some e-mail impersonator, and ty engaged this guy over and over again. >> there is a pattern. >> i think what we have seen around president trump during the campaign, in his white house -- it is much less now, to be clear, by the way. things are stully more stable in that white house. how long that lasts we don't know. for the time being i think john kelly has had an impact. he creates chaos and then he responds to the chaos he creates and everybody around him ends up sort of in some kind of death grip with another side in their lane. you have this sort of battle --
3:29 am
i'm using that word loosely. mcgahn versus ty cobb, versus whoever, don mcgahn, white house counsel. it's the public nature of the fighting that has been surprising about this white house over and over again. i don't think that this was intended for public consumption, literally and figuratively. >> ty cobb is not to be confused as nigel, to quote spinal tap here. >> thank you guys very much. the world is about to see president trump get deeply philosophical, those are his staff's words as he takes center stage at the u.n. a preview of his first-ever general assembly speech next.

sovereignty. >> reporter: like his speeches in saudi arabia earlier this year, the president will frame his foreign policy as a pragmatic approach that shows the benefit of countries acting in their shared self interest. he is expected to issue stern warnings to iran and north korea. the president will speak in tough terms about the north korean menace, after remaining silent about kim jong-un during the first day of the u.n. >> making the united nations great. not again. make the united nations great. >> reporter: the words were far more measured than on the campaign trail when he blasted the u.n. as a bloated bureaucracy. >> the united nations is not a friend of democracy. it's not a friend to freedom. it's not a friend even to the united states of america. >> reporter: he has even ridiculed the iconic emerald backdrop, where he will stand

in just a few hours, president trump is set to deliver a major foreign policy speech to the united nations. let's bring in christiane amanpour who has an exclusive interview with iran's president. great to have you here. >> good to be with you. >> big picture, we heard from president trump's staff this would be a philosophical speech. what are we expecting? >> well, look, yesterday his y debut was actually really nice. he didn't smash them in the face as he has done repeatedly on the campaign trail. he just said let's make it great. people were pleased with that introduction yesterday. remember, the united states, for decades, has been pushing for reform, has been reducing its budget to the u.n. so all the kind of stuff that is being said by the president has actually been u.s. policy for
3:44 am
decades under democratic and republican administrations. now, though, we wait to see this speech. what does it mean mostly on three very critical areas? will the president remain or be somebody who believes in multilateralism and getting together with the rest of the world, allies and others to advance america's agenda, or will he continue the pulling back of america to an america first? what will that look like? secondly, what will he say about the iran deal and north korea? i spoke to the iranian president, you're absolutely right, yesterday. he said in iran they're sitting there in tehran, wondering what's going to happen. they've been discussing this for months. they have the plans set if the u.s. pulls out. this is what he said to me about that. >> translator: exiting such an agreement would have -- would carry a high cost for the united states of america. and i do not believe that americans would be willing to pay such a high cost for

something that will be useless for them. it will yield no results for the united states. but at the same time, it will generally decrease and cut away and chip away at international trust placed in the united states of america. >> what does he mean by high cost? >> he means going back to what iran was doing before this agreement. in other words, rapidly producing and enriching uranium. that's what he means. that would be very, very unwise for the united states and for the rest of the international community right now to have yet another nuclear problem when you have a real live and much worse nuclear problem coming from north korea, which actually does have nuclear weapons. iran doesn't. iran now with the world has a sort of nuclear security policy going on. >> so the president speaks and then later we hear from the french president, emmanuel macron. kind of like point,
3:46 am
counterpoint, nationalism versus multinationalism. >> that's right. i have, very fortunately, an exclusive interview with emmanuel macron. he has met with president trump. they had a nice meeting. president trump was very thrilled with the military parade that included for the first time american soldiers on bastille day this year. they have that in common. but president macron's people have told me we need to show when we sign on as an international community to make a deal, we stick by our words. otherwise, what country who we're trying to affect their behavior is actually going to sit down and make deals with us if we think a next president or next week or next month or next year they're just going to rescind it? >> that will be interesting to see what powers of persuasion he
3:47 am
will have on president trump. optically, they seem very friendly. how do you characterize their real relationship? >> the five-minute long man hug came after the initial, you know, freezing, icy grip and grin that macron gave trump and many people believe that was macron basically laying out his personal relationship in the context with donald trump and actually kind of winning a round back then, when they met at the g7 at nato. they tell me they have areas of deep disagreement and areas of agreement. that's what's going on. people want to see a multilateral united states, not one that pulls out of all the kind of multilateral deals. as they say, nothing can be solved nationally these days. the world is completely globalized. so, throwing all of that out means you can't solve global problem. >> parades and handshakes can't

evacuees from other caribbean islands from irma? what worries you the most right now? >> complacency worries me right now. people might not understand the magnitude of this hurricane or think it won't hit us as hard. all indications are that this will be devastating and catastrophic. my biggest concern is to make sure we save lives and move people from inadequate housing, wood housing and so forth, that we get them out of flooding areas, that we make sure that they understand that there's going to be some surges coming on the coastal lines, that we make sure that they know that although the brunt of the hurricane will pass on wednesday, we're going to start receiving a lot of rain and a lot of flurries tuesday up till saturday. this will be a very dangerous time. we want to make sure right now, recognize that infrastructure is going to be broken but we need

to focus on saving lives. >> we keep looking at the storm track. it does look like puerto rico will suffer a direct hit. what does that mean? what does the impact of the category 5 or -- category 4 or god forbid a category 5 storm on puerto rico? >> infrastructure will be severely crippled. we are going to suffer a major blow on that. housing over here is inadequate. anything that's not concrete you can expect to break apart. service housing with the saturated grounds right now it's even a bigger concern due to the passing of irma. there's a lot of concerns. you know, we really need to focus on one thing right now. and to all the viewers that are seeing this, that have family
