see how much you can save. choose by the gig or unlimited. xfinity mobile. a new kind of network designed to save you money. call, visit, or go to someone will be arrested as par of the special counsel investigation led by bob mueller. >> at the earliest, some of the charges will be revealed. >> there interest be an indictment that will speak to the criminal activity that mueller feels he can prove. >> the beginning of the end of the trump presidency. >> we have not heard from the president about these indictments. >> he has taken the advice to lay low on the subject. >> we will just consume everything donald trump tries to do in the coming months. >> prosecutors like to start with smaller fish and move
3:01 am
slowly up the food chain. good morning, every. i'm rene marsh in for christi paul this morning. >> i'm victor blackwell. good sunday to you. this morning is the beginning of a major week that could have real serious consequences on the white house and for the gop. >> and tomorrow could be a turning point in the russia variation after special counsel robert mueller filed the first charges in the case. sources tell cnn that anyone charged could be taken into custody as early as tomorrow. >> now on tuesday, facebook, twitter, google all heading to capitol hill. their executives will be testifying on russia and the use of social media to influence the 2016 elections. >> wednesday is a vital day for the gop if they hope to pass tax reform this year. it's the deadline to introduce a bill that would be the
3:02 am
president's first major legislative win. >> let's look at thursday. you recognize that face. it's carter page, former trump campaign, foreign policy adviser on the hill on thursday. a panel will interview him as they investigate russia's meddling in the election. >> on friday, president trump heads to acsia meeting with leaders about trade and the north korean nuclear threat. >> a packed week ahead. disappoint pending the charges coming in the russia investigation, the white house has no comment. instead, it's focusing on what they say is the real collusion of possible uranium deal between russia and the obama administration. >> boris sanchez is outside of the white house and he has the details. >> reporter: the white house is not commenting on the latest news coming from mueller's probe into alleged ties between the trump campaign and russia.
3:03 am
however, they are focusing a lot of their energy on a former political opponent of the president's. hillary clinton. look at these tweets sent out by sarah sanders on saturday. she writes, quote. she goes on. speaking about bryant fallon who said that he was happy that the clinton campaign solicited the opposition research provided by fusion gps during the campaign. however, to call it collusion definitely goes a step further. beyond that earlier this week, house republicans announced they were launching an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the sale of a uranium mining company to roush.
3:04 am
the president has alleged the former secretary of state hillary clinton got bribes from russians in exchange for a favorable uranium deal. beyond that, cnn has learned that the white house has pressed staffers to work with the department of justice to live a gag order on a former fbi informant that has information on that sale in order for him to testify during the course of the investigation. beyond all of that, the president is also pushing the state department to release emails it still has pertaining to hoch's time as secretary of state. so while the white house, you would imagine, would be on the defensive, as news that charges stemming from robert mueller's investigation are eminent, they pretty much are on the offensive on appoint of the president that he defeated about 12 months ago. boris sanchez, cnn, at the white house. joining us now deputy managing editor for the weekly standard, kelly jane torrence
3:05 am
and cnn political analyst and historian and professor at princeton university, julian zeleny. kelly, i want to start with you. monday is a big day. tomorrow. we are looking at this indictment and possibly learning more information. what are you going to be looking for in that indictment and what new could we learn from it? >> it's really all up in the air now, isn't it? nobody knows who is going to be charged and with what. as you said earlier that under usually they start pretty low and try to flip people. but we don't know about lower level investigated so far. more people think this could be paul manafort who already had his home raided by the fbi and that, itself, was pretty shonginshong i shocking. usually they give people a warning and come later in the day. they came at dawn to raid his place. the question with the charge is it sort of related directly to russian collusion in the
3:06 am
election or indirectly? people like paul manafort, michael flynn had dealings with foreign governments that could have gotten them in trouble because they didn't report them properly until after the media exposed them. he we really don't know how close this is going to get to the actual trump campaign and the president, himself, yet. >> julian, i want to go to you. republicans are ramping up on this story line about clinton and this uranium deal. the mueller investigation is clearly ramping up as well. now the justice department says that the fbi informant that was a part or present during this deal, which essentially allowed russia to buy a company that would give them 20% stake in u.s. uranium stockpile. now this fbi informant given the green light to testify to congress, what effect will that have? will that only politically charge what is already pretty
3:07 am
charged environment or could we break new ground here with this story? >> i think this last week, the administration has clearly undergone a big campaign to try to switch attention to this uranium deal, to the dossier and leaning to release the gag on the fbi informant was part of this. the problem is the news that broke on friday. because the big story here is the mueller investigation and i think when the news is officially released on monday, that is where attention is going to turn. so the republicans might double down and ramp up this investigation, but i'm not sure that will be the most productive path for them. they are worried, the republican party, about what is about to come in the next, not just week, but few months, once these indictments start. >> so, kelly, "the new york times," they spoke with donald trump's white house lawyer and he essentially said the
3:08 am
president is not concerned at all about what paul manafort might say to mueller, what michael flynn might say to mueller. is this some sort of strategy by this attorney? >> it might be. he give an interview to "the new york times" podcast and you don't see a lot of administration officials willing to do. he has to say that. what is he going to say? we are scared and we are worried what is coming out of this. he kind of has to say that. >> but to go you and do an interview with them. he could say nothing. i mean, what does that say about potentially what their strategy might be? >> they are -- the idea here in pennsylvania these days if you say nothing, you're sort of admitting that you've done something wrong. so these days, you really have to play offense in washington and i think that is what he was doing. one of the things i found striking, by the way, he made a point of saying that the president really likes general
3:09 am
flynn personally, but, you know, if he is charged, he is charged and he can't do anything about that. i found that so striking. the guy could be indicted on monday. we don't know. the president wants people to know that he still thinks he is a great guy. i think even if it doesn't touch trump directly these indictments, they might say something about his judgment. if he was, you know, if he put michael flynn, he made him national security adviser and if we find out some really bad stuff michael flynn was doing and the president is still defending him, that says something about his judgment. >> i want to get to tax reform. we have some sound from the president. of course, tax reform is the big thing this week. here is the president speaking to fox. >> it is tax reform also, but i call it tax cuts. it will be the biggest cuts ever in the history of this country. >> so he wants to do tax cuts. pretty big tax cuts as he says it. julian, to you. i mean, could this back fire on his base as this comes out as
3:10 am
being something it's tax cuts but for the big corporations and not the little guy? >> well, it is. that's what the proposal that we have heard of is. it's a regressive tax cut. there are plans for reform but it's clear that is not where the president's main interest is. and the idea is when you have united republican government, tax cuts supplies high tax cuts should be relatively easy to do. and so the administration is very determined to make that happen. and the question is how loyal is this base? so far, the base doesn't move that much even when there is big contradictions between what the president says he is about and what the president actually does. my guess is the base will remain loyal. i'm not so convinced that the more we learn about how regressive the tax cuts are, the more angry that working in middle class trump supporters will be. so far, they believe in the president and that is more
3:11 am
important than the policies. >> at this point, republicans still really aren't even united on even this issue of tax reform. kelly, to you. what does speaker ryan, for example, need to do in the house to make sure that republicans essentially come together on this? because they really do need a win. >> it's fascinating. you know? the senate leader, mitchell mcconnell gave an interview in which he said we have to do tax reform for the republican party but the president he says has a different profoil on the party. maybe two or three republican parties right now. i found that striking admission of the sort of dissheention in e ranks. the mortgage interest deduction is something they want to get rid of and getting a big pushback from people like the homeowners association and some of their own donors, of course. i'm thinking i personally, i'm a
3:12 am
journalist in d.c. i can't afford to own my own house so why am i subsidizing people who do? the republican party are trying to represent so many people and they have their own interests. people who have the lobbyists, the ones getting to talk to paul ryan and his friends. your average american, they don't have a lobbyist in washington to help them out. so they are really debating on -- they have to pay for this somehow as well and, you know, trump has already taken 401(k) off the table. they really don't seem to have a very specific among and even amongst themselves, they can't agree on the details. >> kelly, thank you so much. as lindsey gram said, it's do or die for them so we will see how this shakes out next week. thank you both for joining us. >> thanks, rene. don't miss "state of the union" with jake tapper this morning. he is talking to senator angus
3:13 am
king and governor chris christie. that is at 9:00 a.m. eastern right here on cnn. listen. i know it's early. but i'm going rogue and use a four-letter word. >> woo! >> snow. >> i don't like that one. >> october and there is already a snowstorm that is blowing through the midwest! then we go to the east coast and you've got this. >> rain? >> no. you got this tropical moisture going right across florida here. they are already struggling from what happened during the height of the season. that monster event is coming and we are going to cnn meteorologist ivan cabrera who is tracking the very latest on this storm. the only tropical rain forest in the national forest system is gone thanks to hurricane maria. see why the loss of this major tourist attraction in puerto rico is more devastating to its residents. it's time to wake up to keurig. wakey! wakey! rise and shine! oh my gosh! how are you? well watch this.
3:14 am
i pop that in there. press brew. that's it. look how much coffee's in here? fresh coffee. so rich. i love it. that's why you should be a keurig man! full-bodied. are you sure you're describing the coffee and not me? do you wear this every day? everyday. i'd never take it off. are you ready to say goodbye to it? go! go! ta da! a terrarium. that's it. we brewed the love, right guys? (all) yes.

3:18 am
i'm sorry. something funny happened during the break. [ laughter ] okay. all right. could we just toss it to ivan cabrera with weather? >> i know. >> we could do that but now i want to know what is going on there. i-this has never happened to me! so funny! >> let's talk about the storm here. we are going to end up here, right? we end up with this monster nor'easter essentially here with damaging wind potential as we have been talking about. 60-mile-an-hour winds plus. flash flooding and also coastal flooding as well. how we get here is interesting. we have a tropical system that is going to be involved with it as well. let's talk about it. it's tropical storm felipe. 45 miles an hour winds and thought we were done, right is in the storms? we got down to the 16th. by the way, florida, you are done with the system. despite the fact the center of circulation is over south
3:19 am
florida. the moisture and bad weather is displaced to the east. the reason for that this thing is tracking up the east coast pretty quickly and that is why we are going to end up with quite the system across the mid-atlantic and the northeast. this track less important now because basically by the time it gets to around sunday at 2:00 p.m. and monday at 2:00 a.m., it will have already merged with the frontal boundary. the same front you guys were talking about with the midwest snow and has made it across the east coast and a moisture ofity own and tap into felipe's moisture and things get interest here because that allows for tisk amounts of ra-- terrific as of rain. we will add wind to equation and i think is causing widespread problems in form of power outages and airline travel a disaster for, i think, monday. this is 7:00 p.m. 35, 40 miles an hour wind gusts
3:20 am
in new york. by monday, talking 50 to 55. you see these colors on a map. this is not good. sustained winds of perhaps 35 to 40 here. in fact, they have a hurricane force wind watch for coastal waters. we could be looking at seas 20 to 25 feet. this is a potent storm. the storms we get in the winter except this one will be wet so we are not talking about snowfall here across the northeast. thankfully. there you see the accumulation potential. anywhere from 4 to 6 inches. that rain is going to be flying sideways. it begins tonight and into monday and i think the airports are going to be a mess if you are traveling, just keep in mind you're probably going to have big delays up and down the east coast for tomorrow. >> ivan, thank you. the u.s. is home to only one tropical rain forest in puerto rico. it supplies 20% of the island's water. >> and now it's gone, thanks to hurricane maria. the storm destroyed it and cnn
3:21 am
is the first tv news organization allowed in to see the devastation firsthand. cnn's martin savidge has up a close look. >> carlos makes a living drive this road. >> i myself go two to four times a week. my staff was up there pretty much every day with two to three vehicles. >> reporter: more than a million tourists make the way up here to the only tropical rain forest in the u.s. forest system or at least they used to until hurricane maria. two weeks after the hurricane, cnn flew a drone at the park's entrance but most of the forest remained out of sight. now we have been given permission to take you inside. if you knew el yunque before you would not recognize it now. the farther into the forest you go the greater the destruction. the hurricane obliterated almost all 28,000 acres.
3:22 am
the first teams in thought to open roads blocked by trees and now fighting off landsides and main access to the forest supplies one-fifth of the island's entire water. >> 20% of the water? >> 20% of the water comes from here so it's important that we clear access into those water intakes to the water supply can be restored. >> reporter: there are 23 species of trees here found no where else. their fate unknown. no wonder the first people who got to the park were shocked what they found. even now five weeks after the hurricane. it is still stunning. an entire rain forest canopy that has been ripped away. >> my heart -- >> reporter: scientist hanna wood was studying the raine
3:23 am
forest. >> it cut the forest in half and complete took out all of the leaves. there was nothing green here at all. >> reporter: her team built this talker to study the top of the tree canopy and nothing to study now but open sky. her original experiment may be in ruins, but she's got the front row seat for a brand new one. >> this is nature. you know? this is what happens in this forest. we have hurricanes that come through. and my job is to study what happens. >> reporter: there are signs the rain forertest is hard at work recovery. always a source of pride for puerto ricans, the forest can be something else. inspiration. >> i think it can be a sense of hope for people as they recover from this hurricane. >> reporter: a learning lesson on starting over. martin savidge, el yunku, puerto
3:24 am
rico. >> is politics in american dysfunctional? most of the country says yes according to a poll. why they say the political divide is as bad as during the vietnam war era. >> the titans of tech are on capitol hill this week and set to talk about russian election meddling after announcing changes to their platforms but will those changes matter the next time the polls open? that's next.

3:29 am
first indictment in the indictment of robert mueller's investigation into possible collusion into russia and the trump campaign, as well as possible objestruction of justi by the president. then social media companies will be on capitol hill to testify on capitol hill. >> the big policy deadline on wednesday the day house republicans have to introduce their tax reform bill. on thursday, trump campaign foreign policy adviser carter page will be interviewed by the house intelligence committee on russia's meddling in the election and on friday, president trump heads off for 12-day trip to asian countries amid the north korea nuclear threat. a lot to discuss this morning so let's do that. joining me is andre bauer and former lieutenant governor of south carolina and maria cardona. good morning. >> good morning. >> we have to start with the big headline this weekend of those
3:30 am
first charges according to cnn sources coming in the russia investigation. how does that impact the president's agenda? is it enough of a distraction to make tax reform, tax cuts even more difficult to get through? >> it's definitely a distraction. it keeps him off his game to continue to hear the drip, drip, drip and the media to be asking about it. the american public needs to have closure to this. i hope quickly and swiftly get to the bottom and move past it. first and foremost, the american people when they elected donald trump they were looking for tax reform. one of the key things that people wanted to see change and if he doesn't get it done then he will have problems in the midterm elections and a defining moment for the republicans to say this is where we differentiate from the democrats substantially. they have got to take a leadership role and get this done no matter what else is going on. if they don't just like senator graham talked about they are going to have some problems. i think they will get it done and i think they will have even
3:31 am
cross party help but it is a key moment for the republicans to take a -- they have been given the opportunity. they have to do it. >> i want to talk more about the impact on tax reform, on 2018 in just a moment. your response, maria, to that. how big after distraction, how important this charge or charges that are coming they will be to the president's agenda? >> i think it will be a huge distraction and i think this is a critically important point in the investigation moving forward. look. we have already seen that this president and this republican congress have been a complete failure and have been completely unable to get anything done to pass any part of their agenda. i think it's part of why the trump administration is so desperate in either trying to shut down the mueller investigation. they have been attacking mueller and been attacking the motives behind the investigation. they have even tried to bring in hillary clinton yet again because they are obsessed with
3:32 am
trying to get the american public to look the other way. i think they are very nervous, very scared about what mueller is going to find down the line. now, i know my friend andre would like to think that this investigation is going to come to a close pretty soon. but from what most of the legal experts are saying is that these indictments are monday is probably just the beginning of a very long investigation that is going to come and president trump, we have already seen, he is completely unable to focus when he is not facing these things. so imagine when he's in the middle of indictments. i think it doesn't bode well for the republican party. >> he has been able to hold the line. the entire white house staff on holding that no comment line since the news broke on cnn on friday night. andre you mentioned senator lindsey graham who spoke about the republicans need to pass tax reform. i want you to listen to the senator here. >> well, i think all of us realize that if they fail on taxes, that is the end of the
3:33 am
republican party's governing majority in 2018. we will lose the house and probably lose ground in the senate. i can't imagine how he could be successful with nancy pelosi running the house. they have tried to impeach him pretty quick and if he just -- it would be one constant investigation after another. so it's important that we pass tax reform in a meaningful way. if we don't, that is probably the end of the republican party as we know it. >> now we have heard from a few others who say that maybe there will be some problems in the senate but they will pobssibly hold on to the house. how widespread is that fear not passing tax cuts will jeopardize the majorities? >> you're asking me, victor? >> yes. >> it's big. they are supposed to be the party that reduces taxes and if they can't come together on the most unifying issue in the republican party, bar none, less
3:34 am
taxes, less government, then they should kick them out of office. they need to be replaced and i hope replaced with more conservative republicans but something has got to change. washington is not washington and not run right when republicans say give us the leadership roles they want. they get the house and senate and don't do it. i expect as a republican and american for them to do something about tax reform. they have got to get it done. >> you say there should be more conservatives replacing the people who don't get it done. would those conservatives vote for a tax plan at 1.5 trillion dollars? >> i think that is the drum beat but growth we have seen every time growth cover that. >> for hawks who want to control the deficit and bring down deficit's pain off debt, how can they carry that banner but also vote for -- >> they can't. >> about reducing taxes.
3:35 am
they never -- they don't have any interest. obama raised $8 trillion of debt and democrats are budget hawks. >> where are the republican budget hawks now? >> republican budget hawks are saying this is clearly taking up with growth. look at the growth of the country right now under donald trump. can you imagine it if we get tax cuts? you are seeing businesses come back to this country in big numbers. you are seeing investment in this country. people like me that own small businesses are doing better than they have ever done because of a change in leadership that wants pro business. when you have that combined with reduction in taxes i don't save as much and reinvest it because of the implications that affect me on taxes. >> maria, i know you want to respond to that. >> yes. >> but also let me get you to respond to is this a tougher fight for democrats than health care was? >> i think this will be a fight but it will be a fight because the majority of the american people, right now, do not support the current, quote, tax reform plan that is on the table
3:36 am
from this administration. the reason for that is because it is a huge wet kiss to millionaires and billionaires like donald trump and it does relatively nothing, if not damages the economies of middle class and working class families. what we have seen from economists so far is that this talking point about, oh, don't worry about the deficits because we are going to make it up in growth is poppy cock. ronald reagan tried it and the economy completely tanked. president bush tried and the economy completely tanked. under past administration has the country grown and expanded? under president clinton and president obama. that gives you the history that when you focus on helping middle class and that you actually ask the higher classes, the 1% to pay a little bit more, that is when the economy grows.
3:37 am
>> we got to wrap it here. maria and andre, thank you very much. the deadline on is on wednesday and 14 working days for the senate, fewer for the house to get something passed by their thanksgiving deadline. thank you both. >> see you later. this week, facebook, twitter, and google will testify for the senate about russian interference into the 2016 election. the companies have announced policy changes but will they make a difference? but, first, you've got a garage full of used sports equipment, this week's cnn hero has found a creative way to give all of that forgotten sports equipment new life. meet max levitt. >> a lot of kids learn the importance of work ethic on the sports field. >> set. go! >> there we go. good job. do it again. >> sports were the most important part of my childhood. i thought a given for children to play sports but so many kids can't afford to play sports. millions of dollars of sports equipment that is being thrown away or wasting away in garages. i thought why don't we create a
3:38 am
food bank for sports equipment? >> to see how max's equipment is really making a difference, go to cnn and, next week, we will be revealing the top ten cnn heroes of 2017.
3:39 am
3:40 am
how much money do you think you'll need in retirement? then we found out how many years that money would last them. how long do you think we'll keep -- oooooohhh! you stopped! you're gonna leave me back here at year 9? how did this happen? it turned out, a lot of people fell short, of even the average length of retirement. we have to think about not when we expect to live to, but when we could live to. let's plan for income that lasts all our years in retirement. prudential. bring your challenges.
3:41 am
accused of obstructing justice to theat the fbinuclear war, and of violating the constitution by taking money from foreign governments 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.
3:42 am
this week, facebook and twitter announced plans to tighten up requirements for advertisers on their platform. they say they will be more transparent who pays for those
3:43 am
ads. >> the moves were announced ahead of a busy week on capitol hill for the tech companies. on tuesday, reps from facebook, twitter, and google will appear before the senate judiciary subcommittee on crime and terrorism. they will answer questions on russia propaganda, online and extremist. the next day the senate intelligence committee will hold a hearing on russian interference in the 2016 election. here to talk about what we can expect to see, brian stelter, cnn senior media correspondent and host of "reliable sources." what are you expecting? >> partly, this is about the past and partly the future. this is a part of the ongoing investigations on capitol hill into russian interference in the election. statement mueller is doing his probe. congress is doing its work. there are a lot of questions about those facebook ads, those russian-linked ads that showed up on facebook last year. there were 3,000 of them. the facebook has turned them over to congress and this week, we will likely get to see them
3:44 am
for the first time. there has been information about them that has leaked out to cnn and other outlets but, now, congress will actually see the ads and hopefully all of america will as well. but this is also about the future. as you all mentioned, new regulations about how ads are displayed on social media. i think we are all used to seeing little ads that show up in our newsfeed and twitter and other social networks but we don't know who is placing the ads there. facebook says they will get better at disclosing that and doing it because congress is planning a new law to enforce it. in either case, we will hear about what happened in the election last year and attempts to ensure there aren't foreign actors meddling in our elections in the future. >> brian, you talked about the new regulations. i mean, do you get the sense that had those regulations been in place beforehand, perhaps we wouldn't be here where we are today talking about russian meddling and all of these online ads they had a hand in?
3:45 am
>> to some degree but i think we should be skeptical about that. after all anybody can advertise on facebook or google or twitter. that is the entire idea of the platform is that i can take out an ad right now and try to target one of you by choosing your location, by choosing what websites you visit and things like that. i could set it up anonymously and make it hard to figure out to follow my tracks and figure out who i actually am. that is true whether i'm an american just trying to sell a product or someone from russia or china or another country trying to sell you a political candidate or sell you on an idea. it's going to require a lot of scrutiny. whatever facebook and twitter and google eventual do. it's notable they are addressing this at all. these companies have come a long way, having to recognize how powerful they have become, so tuesday and wednesday are going to be fascinating on capitol hill because we are going to see the top lawyers from each company face some really hard questions and the number one question on my list? how do they really know what happened last year? meaning have they really done enough research to figure out all of the russian ads that were spread on their networks?
