3:01 am
not through the whole year. good morning, everyone. thanks for joining us. i'm rene marsh in for christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. an important temperature and turning point in the russia investigation. robert mueller has filed the first charges in his investigation floor possible russian meddles in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the trump campaign. sources tell cnn that anyone charged could be taken into custody as early as monday. now these developments are coming hours after president trump again blasted the investigation on twitter. >> it is a landmark moment in the investigation into russian meddling in the 2016 election. sources briefed on the matter say a federal grand jury in washington approved the first charges in the investigation led
3:02 am
by special counsel robert mueller. a spokesperson declined to comment. the indictments are sealed but plans are under way for anyone charged to be taken into custody as soon as monday. >> when you see a sealed indictment like this, it happens for one reason. there is a fear that the defendant is going to flee the jurisdiction. >> mueller wants to send a signal to another perspective defendants, if this person who has been indicted or persons are facing 20 to 40 to 50 years for whatever these crimes are related to collusion or not, there are others who may be subject to similar charges who have further knowledge about dealings with russia. >> the special counsel investigation focused on potential collusion between the two trump campaign and russia as well as obstruction of justice by the president who might have tried to impede the investigation. cnn reported that investigators are scrutinizing the president and his associate financial ties to russia. >> that is what we've been
3:03 am
waiting for. so -- to see if investigators will bring charges in this probe that impacts the president to a degree because investigators have been looking at his potential involvement in obstruction of justice, you see him tweeting about it, calling it a witch hunt, a hoax, saying it as a waste of taxpayer dollars. >> and they are examining foreign lobbying conducted by paul manafort, michael flynn and others. the special counsel has issued subpoenas for documents and testimony to a handful of figures including some people close to manafort and others involved in the trump tower meeting between russians and campaign officials. >> and this may be an indication that he's not trying to show his hand because he doesn't want people to be able to conceal evidence, destroy evidence, it may be the reason that he was able to do a surprise no knock and announce warrant on paul manafort's home and there is an urgency that robert mueller is seeing and it might be a flight risk because there are missing
3:04 am
pieces. >> and joining us now is cnn washington correspondent ryan nobles with more on this. ryan, the trump administration continues to deny there is anything here as far as this russia investigation. >> that is right. and good morning, renee and victor. and up until last night the white house has able to lean on the fact that the mueller investigation has yet to produce anything of a substance and as a result the president and his allies have been working to raise doubt and questions about the value of mueller and his team's work. a good part of the day yesterday the white house accused the special counsel office of being a big waste of time and money. listen to what sara sanders said yesterday during the white house press briefing. >> congress has spent a great deal of time on this. a better part of a year. all of your news organizations have spent probably a lot of money on this as well, which we would consider probably a pretty big waste. i think that our position hasn't changed since day one.
3:05 am
and i think we are seeing now that if there was any collusion with russia, it was between the dnc and the clintons and not our campaign. >> this before the news came out that the indictments had been handed down and the president laying the groundwork with a tweet on friday morning that reads, quote, it is commonly agreed after many months of costly looking there was no collusion between russia and trump. it was exclusion with h.c., talking about hillary clinton. and some republicans have been arguing the investigation is costing taxpayers too much but there isn't much the white house or congress can do bout taking dramatic legislative steps to cut off the funding to the special counsel's office. at this point there doesn't appear to be any political will to push that through but now we are on the verge of the first arrests as possibly as early as monday, this tactic could be more about the battle over public opinion. something the president clearly believes he can win.
3:06 am
renee and victor. >> ryan nobles from washington. we have a power panel for you this morning. we'll start with errol lewis, laura barren lopez and criminal defense attorney joey jackson. good morning to all. i want to start with the legal voice, joey, to you, when this was launched back in mid-may, this special prosecutor robert mueller began his work, people were told this would go on for more than a year. certainly it is not over with the announcement of the first charges but what is reaction to fi -- five months in the reaction to the first charges, based on what we know now. >> good morning, here is the reality. the reaction is that it is an ongoing process and this is just an in ishl -- initial step and i think you hit the nail on the head it is not over and think we'll see indictments could be issued intermittently.
3:07 am
and i would caution in that we know what indictments are. let's remind the audience. it is not saying anyone is guilty, it is an accusation and it establishes two things. one, this probable cause to believe that a crime was committed and two, the focus and subject of that indictment is the one who allegedly committed. and so we're long way from the process of indictment to guilt and this reconfirms what we already knew, we have a very motivated special counsel who has vast experience and put together a profession team and the grand jury is hearing and evaluating testimony and documents and then will return charges accordingly in keeping with whatever the evident shows but we should have pause in as much as presumption of innocence and the fact that it is simply an accusation that amounts to an indict. >> and errol, we've heard the president, he called this investigation a witch hunt.
3:08 am
we heard sara sanders this week say the investigation is wrapping up and that there is no evidence and then this bombshell reporting from cnn that the first charges are going to be happening. does this development impact the presidents a credibility as it relates to the russia investigation. >> when it comes to the russia investigation, i think the president -- it is fair to say, has very little credibility. every single time the topic comes up, for more than a year now, we keep hearing there is nothing there, there is nothing there. there has been an fbi raid of the chair of the trump campaign, paul manafort. there has been a grand jury impanelled, a special prosecutor that has been named. there are multiple congressional investigations going on. if all of this was the product of some witch hunt of some false and misguided political effort, i think it is fair so the conspiracy is so broad and deep
3:09 am
we have a problem at the center of the american government. i don't think that is the case. i think we'll find out whether or not this goes to the heart of the collusion question and that is something to pick up on what joey said, that we want to pay close attention to in the coming days. when the special prosecutor was named it was with a broad mandate. if they see any crimes along the way, they could shift their focus to that. is we don't know if what we're going to see in the coming days will directly the question of collusion or whether there were other sorts of obstruction issues, financial fraud, and money laundering, there is any host of things reported as possibly going on here. and if that is what this is about, then we still have this open question about whether there was in fact collusion. >> and laura, we could expect the charges, specifically what they are and who they are against to shape the white house response and maybe that is why
3:10 am
we haven't heard anything from the white house about cnn's reporting that the first charges are imminent. >> that is right. and it also may be that the president isn't awake yet. we know he's prone to shoot off his early morning tweets and i'm sure that a number of reporters are going to be checking twitter to see if he wants to crime -- chime in on that. the charges, we don't know who they are against. they could be michael flynn, paul manafort, all of these people that have come under -- those two were specifically targeted under this investigation. but there is a number of others that fall under the purview of the investigation, including the president himself. mueller is -- it is known that he's looking at whether or not the president obstructed justice. it is very unlikely that the charges coming on monday are going to be involving the president. but it's no surprise that trump has been quiet so far. >> he's been quiet, but when you
3:11 am
think about the days leading up to what we know now, which is the first charges from mueller, we've noticed a shift in strategy, really coming from the white house, trump's surrogates in where they are focusing on hillary clinton, whether it is the dossier, whether it is that russia uranium deal, i want to talk to you all and maybe errol you could chime in, about what looks like a strategy from the white house, interesting timing as mueller is making this announcement, that was heating up. where they are really focusing in on hillary clinton. >> that is right. deflect and distract is a political tactic that has been very well nope to this white house from the earliest days. so whenever you see and whenever i see clinton e-mails being talked about, whenever i see sort of old talking points being revived from the campaign, what that tells me is there is
3:12 am
nervousness among the president's political staff that some shoe is about to drop or at least that they want to get their troops all riled up and nothing does that better or more quickly than saying hillary clinton's e-mails. and the more they could have their base focus on that, and sort of identify that as the real problem in this country, the more they can sort of put up a political defense against this ongoing investigation. >> errol, laura, joey, i want you all to stay with us. we'll continue this conversation after the break. so many angles of this news that we want to explore this morning. and the president is said to travel to asia next week amid growing tensions on the korean peninsula despite renewed threats, james mattis said the u.s. is still committed to diplomacy, an update from the region is ahead. eople like banging their head on a low ceiling.

3:14 am
and threatening to shut down news organizations that report the truth. if that isn't a case for impeaching and removing a dangerous president, then what has our government become? i'm tom steyer, and like you, i'm a citizen who knows it's up to us to do something. it's why i'm funding this effort to raise our voices together and demand that elected officials take a stand on impeachment. a republican congress once impeached a president for far less. yet today people in congress and his own administration know that this president is a clear and present danger who's mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons. and they do nothing. join us and tell your member of congress that they have a moral responsibility to stop doing what's political and start doing what's right. our country depends on it.
3:15 am
3:16 am
more now on our top story this morning.
3:17 am
the first charges in the russia investigation led by special council robert mueller has been filed. our panel is back. we are all here and joey, i want to start all off with you. right now we're talking about all of this, we don't know what this specific charges are. tell me why this sealed indictment? >> well what happens is that to the extent that grand jury -- proceedings are always secretive, you are protecting the integrity of the process and ensuring that witnesses don't abscond from justice or there is no information that has crept into the public domain beforehand and so what is common that news matters are sealed. after that arrest that may change. and so we'll have more information on monday concerning who the focus of the indictment is, what the charges are on the indictment, because now it becomes public. you are in a court proceeding and go before a magistrate and issues of bail are set concerning your custody. and so at that point, it will
3:18 am
become a mot lott more clear, at the point it is right now, we're just in a situation where we know that mueller is doing his job and convened this panel and we know that 12 of the 23 grand jurors believed enough that is significant to put forward the charges against whoever the defendant or the defendants are, that we'll see on monday. >> and joey, you could also be that they have a fear this person could, i don't know, flee, or does that play into this at all? >> it does, indeed. there is multiple factors. i don't think they'll be -- in terms of fleeing, i don't think there is a likelihood as it relates to that, but sure, you want to seal indictments to protect the integrity of the process to make sure that people don't go astray, to ensure that people are not tipped off as to it and i think that particularly something as significant as this, where we are talking about the potential collusion, i think that is one of the basis for
3:19 am
that. >> and the president as members of the campaign chd and transition team have denied in any collusion with the russians. >> the russia store yoy is a to fabrication. >> did anyone in the campaign have any contact with russia in the campaign. >> there is absolutely no collusion. it is stated they have no collusion. >> are there any ties between mr. trump or you and your campaign and putin and his regime. >> no, there are not. it is absurd. >> there was no collusion between us and russia. >> did anyone involved in the trump campaign have any contact with russians trying to meddle with the election. >> absolutely not. >> in the meantime, no collusion, no obstruction -- >> and laura, to you, in the last few days, the president and white house and members of congress have been complaining
3:20 am
about the length and the expense of the investigations. both mueller and the congressional investigations and any indication about mueller's record that those complaints influenced the decision in the timing of what we're seeing in cnn's reporting of the first charges comingi. >> we no from the beginning of the investigation, not only from congressional but muellers, that time is of the essence. mu mueller and members of congress know that an answer needs to come relatively quickly because of how drawn out this has been because of the impact that it has on not only the white house but congress and the ability of our government to run. so mueller, who has served as fbi director for 12 years, spanning from bush to obama, definitely is focused on this and has -- that is why he's remaining quiet and not talking to the press.
3:21 am
that is why him and his team have been tight lipped about where this investigation is headed. so it is not surprising, i guess, that he is trying to move as quickly as he can to an answer. >> and errol or joey, either one of you on this one, as far as what the president does next, we've seen his target mueller. do we think that as a reaction, looking forward to next week, he's prepping for this big trip to asia, i mean, does he again put mueller in his cross hairs and start attacking him again now that the first charges are coming? >> i don't know what the legal procedure would be. i would defer to joey on that but politically, if you follow what is being said in conservative media, including fox news, there is story after story trying to paint mueller as some out of control partisan
3:22 am
enemy of donald trump. when he's anything but. he's had a long and distinguished career and he is a prosecutor so he doesn't have a lot of political aims. he's tried to focus this investigation and moved with sort of frightening speed on one level to assemble a very competent team and so get right to the heart of what we are all know, not just the washington beltway but the american people want to know. >> joey, to you, now that this has been matched by other outlets that these first charges are coming, does that potentially change the timeline of what happens next? >> i don't think so. i think there is a process and i think that this special counsel is really dedicated to assessing the facts, gathering those facts, putting them before a grand jury and letting the charges be what they may. the large concern is what the charges are and how broad they can be, based upon the mandate.
3:23 am
whenever you start investigating one thing, many other things pop up. and so once you have a grand jury impanelled, you could extend the time that that grand jury sits. i think the time frame is governed by the evidence they hear, and by the documents they evaluate and the witnesses they are speaking to and i don't think simply because there is one indictment it will change their parameters or change the procedure, or the time frame. i think it will lead to where it may, when it may and i think if a forthcoming on monday we'll see what it is and who the charges are and anyone else and i hasten to add it it could be one person or multiple charges once the indictment is unsealed. >> errol, laura barren lopez, joey jackson and thank you so much and hoping that the first indictments will eventually help them pull all of the other threats. >> we have a lot more to talk about this morning. the admission from the
3:24 am
washington free beacon that they hired fusion gps to find dirt on hillary clinton and the candidates for president and the president asking for the state department to speed up the release of thousands of hillary clinton's e-mails when she was secretary of state. so we'll get to all of that this morning as well. and we're learning more about what happened in that attack that killed four americans in niger as well. and how the u.s. forces were split up and what they tried to do as they fought back. witness katy perry.

3:29 am
jury has approved the first charges in this case. >> and special counsel robert mueller is leading the investigation. he is focusing on potential collusion between the two trump campaign and russia as well as obstruction of justice, by the president. and cnn has reported that mueller and investigators on capitol hill are scrutinizing trump and his associates financial ties to russia. our justice correspondent pamela brown helped break the story. she has more. >> reporter: it is unclear what the charges are because as i pointed out, the indictment is still under seal and it is not clear whether those under indictment have been notified. a spokesperson for the special counsel office declined to comment for this. but as we've been reporting, mueller was appointed in may to lead this investigation into russian meddling in the 2016 u.s. election, and under the regulations governing special counsel investigations, rod rosin stein would be made aware of any charges before they were
3:30 am
taken before the grand jury. on friday we had a producer there who saw a flurry of activity, including the veteran prosecutor andrew wiseman entering the courtroom where the grand jury meets to hear testimony in the investigation. and so now we're learning that the first charges were filed, so this is certainly a big moment in this investigation that began more than a year ago and then robert mueller took over in may and now we're seeing the first charges. >> well mueller's team is also examining foreign lobbying conducted by former trump campaign manager paul manafort. he has issued subpoenas for documents and testimony to some people close to man -- and paul manafort. the department of jis he is said he is honing in the financial dealings with foreign governments. he spoke to our anderson cooper. >> if it was andrew weissman at
3:31 am
the courthouse returning the indictment, he has been on the paul manafort case and might be logical to conclude it is paul manafort. he has been under scrutiny for collusion and for his real estate dealings and for tax and money laundering investigation. so you could have an investigation of paul manafort separate from the collusion but which implicates his dealings with the monies that he earned in ukraine and elsewhere overseas. >> and flee committees on capitol hill are also investigating. the president has consistently dismissed the investigation as a hoax. he tweeted just yesterday, it is now commonly agreed after many months of costly looking that there was no collusion between russia and trump. was collusion with hc. meaning hillary clinton. well deal with extremists in africa or we'll have to deal
3:32 am
with them here in the u.s. that is the warning coming from the u.s. ambassador to the united nations nikki haley, she just finished a tour in africa the attack on u.s. forces in niger and said the situation in africa is much like what has happened in the middle east. >> we have to deal with the situation on the ground so we are not dealing with in the united states. and these africa an countries and if they take care of the people and respect the voices of their people, then you get true democracy. if they don't listen to the voices of their people, conflict will erupt, extremism will happen, and the united states will have to deal with it. >> we're also learning more about the attack in niger that killed four americans. u.s. officials tell cnn the green beret led unit separated into two groups during the fight. now they tried to launch a
3:33 am
counter attack but were out numbered by isis linked militants. joining us live from niger with more, cnn correspondent david mckenzie. tell us about what you are learning about that attack? >> good morning, every morning it seems at tack that struck green beret and nij earens and a few hours from where this event took place and u.s. officials saying when they came under attack, the u.s. team split up. and they lost contact with each other but not with headquarters. they describe how dramatic moments when at least several u.s. soldiers got out of their vehicle to try and outflank the far superior in terms of numbers militant force that was attacking them with small arm machine guns and mortars and rpg's and now a soldier we spoke
3:34 am
to went back to the scene an sent to the scene and he that the nigerens and the soldiers were standing back to back ready to fight to the end. a regional intelligent service said this threat is not quite like that in the middle east. these are desperate militant groups that are, in fact, loosely connected to isis, not getting command and control. >> david mckenzie this morning. tha thank you so much. and still to come, ahead of the president's trip to asia, they warn any attack on the u.s. will be defeated. an update from the region is next. when you clock out, i'll clock in... sensing and automatically adjusting to your every move. there. i can also help with this. does your bed do that? i'm the new sleep number 360 smart bed. let's meet at a sleep number store.

john f. kennedy assassination, according to the released files, the fbi tried to track down a stripper named kitty. and another one names candy cane said kitty was connected to night club owner jack ruby. stay with us. now stay with us. he's the man who shot kennedy's assassin lee harvey oswald days after he shot the president. >> according to the files, kitty was never found because she reportedly committed suicide in the months before the assassination. that is just one of the stories coming from the nearly 3000 declassified jfk files. >> there are also strange phone calls and mention of marilyn monroe and talk about other records that were held after request by intelligence agencies, cnn randi kaye has a look at what we've learned. >> president kennedy died at
3:49 am
1:00 p.m. central standard time. >> reporter: newly released jfk files reveal not only did lee harvey oswald travel to mexico city but spoke with a kgb officer there at the russian embassy. who worked for a department responsible for sabotage and assassination. adding to the intrigue, a cia memo detailing an intercepted phone call from oswald to the embassy, oswald in broken russian asked if there was, quote, anything new concerning the telegram to washington. the new documents reveal the president's brother, attorney general robert kennedy, and the fbi had been warned about a new book alleging robert kennedy's affair with actress marilyn money row -- monroe and then aletter directed to j. edgar hoover claimed that the younger kennedy had a affair with her and threatened to kill her when
3:50 am
she revealed and it was noted to be false when kennedy was in san francisco with his wife at the time of the death. and even before oswald was killed by jack ruby, there was a warning his life was in jeopardy. a memo from then fbi director j. edgar hoover revealed the day after jfk was killed they got a call from a man talking in a calm voice saying he was a member of a committee organized to kill odd wald and they the fbi shared that information with the dallas police chief and he was assured adequate protection was given. oswald was shot dead after being led out of the basement of the dallas police department. >> and what about the rumored plots to kill fidel castro who was the leader of cuba. the new jfk files contain a 1975 document detailing how then
3:51 am
attorney general robert kennedy told the fbi that he learned the cia had hired someone to approach the mob about killing castro. another plot to kill castro detailed in the documents would have involved the cia's use of an american lawyer sent to negotiate with castro for the release of bay of pigs prisoners, the plan was for the lawyer to give castro, would liked to skin dive, a dive suit contaminated with a disabling fungus and tuberculosis in the breathing apparatus. the american lawyer didn't go through with it. in another surprising twist, the document shows that the fbi had once suspected kennedy's vice president lyndon johnson may have been a member of the kkk. a internal memo from 1964 shows an informant said the kkk had, quote, documented proof that johnson had been a member of the klan early in his political career.
3:52 am
fascinating, perhaps, but no proof was ever provided. randi kaye, cnn, new york. president trump invited a small group of trick-or-treats to the oval office to celebrate halloween. that was yesterday. we have some video here of the kids. these are the children of members of the white house press corp. about a dozen, around the desk dressed up like super heros and there is princess leia and the president handed out candy. let's listen in. >> you are going to growp to be like your parents? don't answer. that could only get me many trouble that question. so this is perfect the white house. see what that says? who likes this? you have no weight problems, that is the good news. so how does the press treat you? i bet you get treated better by the press than anybody in the
