tv Erin Burnett Out Front CNN November 3, 2017 4:00pm-5:00pm PDT
outside the kim family. >> lot of mysteries that continue to this day. thank you very much. that's it from me. thanks very much for watching. i'm wolf blitzer in "the situation room." erin burnett "outfront" starts right now. "outfront" next, president trump says he can't remember. so what happened to the self-proclaimed greatest memory of all time? plus, the president now calling on the justice department to go after his political enemies. did he go too far? and the surprising sentence for bow bergdahl. no prison time. let's go "outfront." good evening, i'm kate bolduan in for erin burnett. i can't remember or more like i want to forget. did president trump insist iinge can't recall a campaign meeting during the election when foreign policy adviser george papandr u
papadopoulos floated the idea of a meeting with putin. here's president trump earlier today. >> i don't remember much about that meeting. it was a very unimportant meeting. don't remember much about it. >> that maybe so, but why then did president trump also make this bold claim just last week. >> i'm a very intelligent per n person. one of the great memories of all time. >> to make matters worse, before the president, another campaign adviser remembers the meetings quite well. j.d. warden telling cnn that quote, heard him and it seems the president isn't the only one in this administration who's having a hard time remembering any potentially damaging information. b about russia. jeff sessions also has a case of the i can't remembers when it cops to this same meeting and another one and that's just this week. don't forget, from jared kushner
to donald trump jr. to michael flynn, they've had trouble remembering pretty much anything having to do with the russians. what's going on with russian amnesia? so, the list keeps growing. >> it does, kate. the i can't remember, it seems to be a common refrain. as quou heard there, the president said it today when asked about the march 2016 meeting he was at when george papadopoulos proposed that trump meet with putin. then there's attorney general jeff sessions. he was in that meeting, too, and why we haven't seen him respond directly to this yet, democrats are now accusing him of everything from problems telling the truth to purgery for prior statements. tonight, the president remains defiant amid mounting evidence that he knew about his campaign adviser's connections to russia. >> there was no collusion. there was no nothing. >> in february of this year, he pleaded total ignorance. can you say whether you are aware that anyone who advised your campaign had contacts with
russia during the course of the election? >> well, i told you. general flynn, obviously was dealing, so that's one person, but he was dealing as he should have been. >> during the election? >> nobody that i know of. >> you're not aware of contacts during the course of the election russia is a ruse. to the best of of my knowledge, no person that i deal with, now manafort has totally deny ied i. >> tonight, paul manafort and rick gates remain under house arrest. the indictment was unsealed mounday for money laundering. manafort and gates have pleaded not guilty which stem from a ukrainian political party and was not explicitly related to their work during the campaign and now, jeff sessions is also coming under increasing fire for answers he gave at several congressional hearings over the past year. >> you don't believe that surrogates from the trump campaign had communications with the russians.
is that what you're saying? >> i did not and i'm not aware of anyone else that did. i don't believe it happened. >> i think it's not that he has a problem with the truth. it's easier to say he's purgered himself at least three times. >> the accusations from democrats come after revelations from former advisers, carter page and george papadopoulos. carter telling cnn he told investigators he mentioned a trip to sessions he planned the take to russia at the height of the campaign. and in a march 2016 meeting where pop dapadopoulos sat in between -- and jeff sessions. he told the group he had connections that would help arrange a meeting between trump and putin. j.d. jordan sitting next to papadopoulos sells cnn donald trump heard him out, but then senator sessions, who was a top campaign surrogate, shot down the idea of a meeting with putin, a source tells cnn.
this is video of papadopoulos speaking at an event unrelated to the campaign in 2016. president trump has down played his role, calling him a low level roll tier and a liar. but papadopoulos' disclosures to the fbi as part of his guilty plea for lying about his contacts with russians during the campaign are already affecting the administration. for example, sam clovis was forced to withdraw his name from a top spot of the department of agriculture after "the washington post" revealed he was the campaign supervisor referred to in court documents where e-mail showed he encouraged papadopoulos to set up a meeting in russia. now, clovis told the president in that recawithdrawal letter t he was withdrawing so he wouldn't be a distraction in what he called a heightened political climate. >> that isn't going to be wearing down soon. great to see you. thank you so much. "outfront" tonight, evan perez, cnn justice correspondent. mia henderson and paul krueger,
former assistant u.s. attorney. evan, is it possible they simply don't remember these conversations? what are you hearing? >> well, look, it is possible. if you remember the trump campaign was sort of an insurgent operation. it was rejected by the establishment and you had a bunch of characters that who were sort of like on the fringe who donald trump brought in to sort of be his national security team, who had been rejected by some of the other candidates it is b possible these people just didn't know each other and this, it's a pattern about why so many questions and you know robert mueller, the special counsel is doing an investigation here, so he's got e-mails. we'll see. >> the same time, they're either low level volunteer kind of nobodies or they're --
>> everybody was volunteer though. in that campaign, everybody was a volunteer. >> that's exactly right. even if they are a volunteer, they're a foreign policy add vi adviser. try this on for size ch i want to play what the president said about that meeting today and what just last week. >> i don't remember much about that meeting. it was a very unimportant meeting. took place over a long time. don't remember much about it. one o f the great memories of all time. >> can both of these things be true? >> no. i mean, they can't be. he's sort of, two thing. even in the statement that he doesn't remember it, but he remembers it now have say that it was unimportant. so i mean, that in and of itself is a bit of a contradiction. we have seen this sort of russia induce d amnesia from a lot of people in trump's orbit. sessions, flynn, not remembering the details of a conversation that he had with a then russian ambassador.
even papadopoulos seem ed to no quite remember the timeline in that ask got him in trouble with the fbi. donald trump jr. didn't quite remember the details of a meeting he had with a russian lawyer. so you know, this is the pattern. that is what bob mueller will look at. he'll of course have documents. have maybe witnesses who can contradict this kind of memory or different statements that other witnesses make, but i think you know, this is what we've seen from this white house, from people around this white house. this idea of they can't remember, they can't quite recall. which is something. i mean, you know, i'm no lawyer. i don't play one on tv. i've watched a lot of law and order. often time, you do hear witnesses rely on that phrase, that they can't quite recall, they don't remember is a sort of nonanswer to questions. >> let's go to the actual lawyer. plays one in real life. to your point, i don't remember is a tried and true legal defense. we've seen over and over again.
donald trump used it himself in a deposition. i think in 2015. 30 times during his deposition. also during that same deposition, donald trump said, if you like i have amnesia because i have to say it again, i don't remember that as good as my memory is is, i don't remember that, but i have a good memory. how good of a legal defense is this? >> in the criminal case, if a charged individual is repeatedly claiming they don't remember something, that common sense would tell an average person based on the significance of the event is significant, that defense begins to crumbable a little bit. in addition, if i were the prosecutor on b on this case, i'd be look iing at e-mails, correspondence before and after the march 31st 2016 meeting. >> the i don't remember. especially with papadopoulos. he doesn't remember, has a faulty memory, then the e-mails show a better chain of timeline. and then he had to plead guilty.
>> it's interesting in this case what you're not hearing is that george papadopoulos is lying about this meeting of the events didn't happen. gordon corroborated saying what he was charged with. >> so there's that. and evan b, when it comes to attorney general jeff sessions, let's just narrow in on that and what he can't remember. that's piling up. do you think he's in trouble? >> you know, i think there's enough caveats in what jeff sessions says. if you look at what he's given, he's under oath, he does sort of have these caveats that i think will make him be able to escape any accusations that he purposely lied to any of those committees. i think they are going to bring him back though and make him explain himself and this in the end is going to be a political problem for him that's going to keep piling up. that's, in and of itself, a big problem, but i will say, just
look iing at what papadopoulos did, once you get a picture, the special counsel has information and he chose in those documents that were released this week, he only revealed certain parts of it. for instance, he says something about how you know, papadopoulos brought up the russia meeting between putin and trump because we know there's more to that and they purposely did not put the rest of the interaction in there. we'll see whether other witnesses will lie when they are questioned about it. >> and intriguing on the fact he thought he was going to be getting dirt in those hillary clinton e-mails. there's no follow up if he told anyone in the campaign. that's one of those huge caveats where you have to say. yeah, there's got to be more to that. i mean, paul, when it comes to jeff sessions, one of the democratic congressman said he thinks at this point, sessions clearly in his view, perjured himself. do you think it's reached that point? >> to prove perjury, you have to show at the time the person made the statements, they knew they
were false. clearly, there's inconsistencies here. >> and if it comes to perjury, what does that mean? democrats want him back on the hill for questions, but he's already recuse ded himself from anything relating to russia. what are they going for now? do they want to just take him down? >> i think it's more of a political move. democrats did originally not like jeff sessions. you heard some democrats, even call for his resignation. but at this point, you wonder if democrats could be playing into this idea of maybe jeff sessions will be fired by donald trump. who also has had problems with jeff sessions because he recused himself from the russia investigation. so you know, are they giving sort of am in addition and reason to donald trump to maybe let sessions go. bring in another attorney general who then would have the sort of authority to be, to fire mueller if he wanted to be.
i'm sort of just play iing this out. i think democrats for now sort of just want to make a point of having jeff sessions. have to explain himself again. and have russia back in this headlines. and sessions sort of involvement with it and not being truthful in terms of his original testimony around russia. but who knows what this could trigger in terms of the president's thinking about this. the president's thinking about jeff sessions, his role and mueller's role. >> i think the one thing we know is like who knows. right there. wait for next week. do i need to remind you where we started on monday. great to have you. next, breaking new, president trump just land iing in hawaii he heads off on his trip to asia. this as he is calling on the justice department to go after his enemies. did he finally cross a line here? plus, a stunning decision. bowe bergdahl avoids prison. did the president's words play a
part in the decision? plus, a las vegas shooting victim with life threatening injuries. we'll show you her recovery one month after that horrific night. ♪ if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis,... ...isn't it time to let the real you shine through? maybe it's time for otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months,... ...with reduced redness,... ...thickness, and scaliness of plaques. and the otezla prescribing information has... ...no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't use if you're allergic to otezla. otezla may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. tell your doctor if these occur. otezla is associated with an increased... ...risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have... ...a history of depression... ...or suicidal thoughts,...

air force one just now in hawaii. we can think of this as a brief pit stop as he heads off on his big asia region trip. he'll be hitting up five country, 12 days. huge foreign policy issues at stake and president trump stopping now in honolulu. he'll be there tomorrow then heads off to tokyo. the other breaking news we are watching tonight, a top republican senator calling out president trump for pressuring his justice department to go after his political enemies. senator corker who of course has become one of the most vocal trump critics saying this tonight in a statement. the president's comments are quote totally inappropriate and not only undermine our justice system, but erode american people's confidence in our institutions. what led to that? quite a bit. starting earlier today when trump tweeted this. everybody is asking whether justice department and fbi isn't looking into all the dishonesty going on with crooked hillary and the dems. then trump said this. >> i'm really not involved with
the justice department. i'd like to let it run itself, but honestly, they should be looking at the democrats. they should be looking at podesta and all of that dishonesty. they should be looking at a lot of things and a lot of people are disappointed in the justice department, including me. >> "outfront" now, walter, the former director of the office of government ethics and jeffrey toobin. all right, jeffrey, let's get to it. it also just wasn't a one off today. president trump said basically the same last night. listen to this. >> thing is that because of the president of the united states, i am not supposed to be involved with the justice department. i'm not supposed to be involved with the fbi. i'm not supposed to be doing the kind of things that i would love to be doing and i'm very frustrated by that. >> he says he's sad that he can't get involved. him saying that, isn't that inherently getting involved? >> well of course it is. remember why these norms exist.
you know, richard nixon tried to use the justice department to punish his political enemies, use the internal revenue service to punish his political enemies and there are established rules that law enforcement is something that the president does not get involved in on individual cases. especially when it involves his political opponents. because this is the kind of country we are where the president doesn't get to put his political opponents in prison. but if you listen to what the president said yesterday and what he wrote, what he's saying is he's frustrated that the justice department is not putting the women, the woman he ran gens for president in prison. that's the kind of thipg that happens in authoritarian countries, not the united states. i know we sort of get overloaded with like oh, trump said this, trump said another thing, he tweeted this. this is something so far outside the mainstream of american law and politics, it's really
remarkable. >> and very much not the first time he's questioned the judicial system. and walter, you were in charge of the office of government ethics. the president is calling on the justice department to go after his political enemies. from your perspective, should this raise red flags? >> well, jeffrey's right. this is the stuff that authoritarianism is made of. it's just terrifying. it's the scariest thing that i've seen happen so far in this administration. he just simply seems to have no appreciation for or interest in the importance of the independence of the department of justice. and it's just been a consistent assault on our justice system from him calling it a laughing stock to him attacking judges, to him firing the head of the fbi. implying he might be willing to fire the head of department of justice. you're not supposed to use the apparatus of the state to go
after your political rivals. >> and remember, jeff sessions, the attorney general, is already hanging by a thread with trump u. he already has said many times how dissatisfied he is and now, he is in effect instructing sessions so start going after his enemies. >> do you think this is a threat, an ultimatum, sessions, do this or else? is. >> i don't know how else to ininterpreter it. >> he said i can't tell the department of justice what dood, but here's what i think they should do. and i'm very disappointed and may fire the attorney general. how else can you interpret what he said? >> also had me thinking today this is the same donald trump that, this is the very same donald trump along with say every other republican, who lit their hair on fire when bill clinton medicine with the former ag loretta lynch on the tarmac. >> bill clinton goes in the other day into an airplane.
just happened to be oh just a coincidence. just happened to be b at the airport at this time. talking about golf and grandchildren. i love my grandchildren so much. but if i talk about them for more than about nine or ten seconds, what are we -- >> call it a disgrace, violation of the rule of law? it was a major misstep then. everyone agreed on that. how was all this from trump to be received then over the justice department? >> well, look, we are so far beyond hypocrisy. this is the white house that is using private e-mails after chanting lock her up for using private e-mails. there's no two ways about it that what bill clinton did was dumb u and wrong, but he was a former president of the united states. and we don't know what was said on that plane. the fear and what trump was implying was that he was somehow trying to get her to back off of investigating his wife. well now what we have is an actual president of the united states actually saying go after my rivals. so we don't have to speculate or
wonder. and so this is just the height of hypocrisy right now. >> i really do wonder though, jeffrey, how is this received over at justice? this isn't the first time. >> i used to be an assistant u.s. attorney, which is a very low level, but a very responsible job. and one of the things that everyone at the department of justice feels great pride in is that it is an apolitical institution other than at the top levels where there are policy issues about sentencing and voting rights, but when it comes to criminal prosecution, those are issues left outside the political process and to see a president you know, wink, wink, nod, nod, telling the attorney general whom to prosecute, it's just, it's just not right. trz and you know, we expect new presidents to change policies. we don't expect them to change the norms. the rules of the game.
that's what trump is doing here. >> i'm still, i am still trying to find the upside. trying to find the upside on this for trump. >> his base loves it. the people who were chanting lock her up, they want her locked up. >> but it's still his justice department he's slamming on every turn on this and how they prosecute terror cases and on and on and on. how this helps him, let's leave it for another day. great to see you guys. thank you so much. "outfront" next, did president trump's own words lead to the controversial sentencing of bowe bergdahl? and the president claims he's hitting isis much harder as revenge for the new york city terror attack except where is the evidence of that? so, that goal you've been saving for,
mom! slow down! for the ones who keep pushing. always unstoppable. but he's got work to do. with a sore back. so he took aleve this morning. if he'd taken tylenol, he'd be stopping for more pills right now. only aleve has the strength to stop tough pain for up to 12 hours with just one pill. tylenol can't do that. aleve. all day strong. all day long. also try aleve direct therapy with tens technology for lower back pain relief. anyone who calls it a hobby doesn't understand.
new tonight, president trump angry that bowe bergdahl will not spend any time in prison. anouning the ruling for the sergeant who deserted his post in 2009. the president tweeting this, the decision is a complete and total disgrace the to our country and military. bergdahl was captured and held hostage by the taliban for five years. he came home as part of a controversial exchange for guantanamo bay detainees. bergdahl pleaded last month to desertion and misbehavior before the enemy. he originally faced life in prison, but prosecutors asked the judge for a 14-year sentence. today, the judges had decided bergdahl will be dishonor bly discharged and fined $1,000 a month for the next ten months. nick valencia is out front. >> bowe bergdahl walked into court on friday at ft. bragg,
visibly tensed. he was dishonor bly discharged. >> he has looked forward to today for a long time. >> it was the culmination of a nearly ten-year saga for the 123i-year-old who just last month pled guilty to desertion and misbehavior in front of the enemy. it was june 30th 2009 when bergdahl deliberately walked away from his post in afghanistan. within hours, he was captured by the taliban and held hostage for almost five years. bergdahl said he spent most of the time living in a metal cage. beaten and tortured. several servicemen were injured while looking for bergdahl in afghanistan including master sergeant mark allen, who was shot in the head and left paralyzed. in 2014, bergdahl was leased in a controversial prisoner swap for five detainees and during the campaign, then candidate donald trump blasted the decision. and bergdahl. >> we're tired of sergeant bergdahl, that's a traitor, who should have been executed.
30 years ago, he would have been shot. >> today, president trump slammed bergdahl's sentence, tweeting the decision on sergeant bergdahl is a complete and total disgrace to our country and our military. bergdahl tearfully apologized monday to the soldiers who searched for him, saying my words can't take away for what people have been through. i'm admitting i made a horrible mistake. a mistake he'll have to live with for the rest of his life. the conditions of his sentence will be effective immediately with the exsengs of tception of dishonorable discharge. the attorney for bergdahl says he will remain in the army until the appeals process is exhausted. also, the convening authority, the man who convened the court marshall on bergdahl, he has a chance to look at this sentence and he also has the authority to lessen the charges against bergdahl if he sees fit. kate. >> thanks so much. "outfront" with me now, retired army major general, james spider
marx and retired fbi special agent mike rogers. he also served in the army. congressman, first to you. when president obama announced the deal to get bergdahl home, you called it dangerous. what's your reaction tonight to the sentence? >> well, very, very, very disappointed for a couple of reasons. one, you released five people, two of which by the way were believed to be at the sight where a kii officer, michael span, was killed. one was a taliban intelligence leader who we know slaughtered civilians all across afghanistan and helped planned operations against u.s. troops, so those are two. the others were engaged in terrorist activities. so think of the effort, level of effort to bring those folks to justice. they were traded for somebody who admitted he deserted and in the following day, we had one sergeant shot in the head and is now disabled. we had other folks injured and the judge could have gone life
in prison. i don't think that was right, but no jail time? absolutely no jail time? i think that's disrespectful to the men and women we asking to go outside the wire every day and risk their lives and certainly, the men and women that serve with them believe that. >> general, what do you think? >> my view of this is that bergdahl did, in his admission of guilty of what he did, clearly there was an acknowledgment on his part that he made, he didn't make a mistake. he consciously made a decision to desert and then the other charge is misbehavior in the face of the enemy. and then as a result of those actions, i think what was in the mind of the judge and mike rogers and i may disagree on this, but i can't get into the head of that judge. but i think what he's thinking is look, bergdahl gained no personal advantage by deserting. he deserted his post. abandoned his troops.
put other soldiers at risk and we all acknowledge thark but on a personal level, he gained no advantage and spent the next five years in a cage and then was released. the terms were agree jous. they went to qatar and life in qatar had been miserable and they were followed 24/7 i might be able to agree to that, but that was not the case. so in this particular case, you've got a sergeant that's now going to be dishonor bly discharged. he is going to have to live with this for the rest of his life. gets no benefit. he's going to have to find a community that's going to be able to embrace that type of individual who conducted these kinds of actions and a ban donned his buddies. it's a horrible thing all around. absolutely zero sympathy for bo de bergdahl on this. >> the president tweeting about the sentencing right after it happened. the complete and total disgrace to our country and military. do you think the president should be weighing in on this at all? >> i don't. again, one thing i'll give him
credit for. he did talk about it in the campaign. he stopped as president. i'll give him credit for that. he's in the chain of command of the individual who was in that court and i would have thought that that would have been beyond the pale, but he didn't do that. afterward, he made a statement and i hope what happens is we don't get distracted of what happened and where i just disagree with my good friend, desertion isn't about a personal thing any way. you serve in a unit to protect the people on your left and right and so when you desert, it's more than a personal gain. you're causing harm and danger and risk to the people around you. that's why i think desertion is such a serious thing and it wasn't just desertion on a post. this is desertion in a combat environment then subsequent to that, we worry about him having to worry about what he lived with. how about the sergeant who is disabled and can't get out of a wheelchair for the rest of his life? i just think some time in jail
would have sent a message to our fellow soldier, we get it, we understand your pain and they're right. >> let me ask you about that. because when bergdahl came home, some of those who served with him and were sent out to search for him, they weren't just not happy. they were furious and angry. listen to this. >> you would never leave to begin with without your equipment or your weapon. so that's suspect from the beginning. i don't believe he had any intention on coming back. >> he violated his oath. he vited you know, the army values. he violate d his general orders. and the bond between brothers that exists on the battlefield. >> so general, do you think this sends a bad message to the troops? >> what it says is that look, this is a human "endeavour." i don't disagree at all with mike in terms of how he describes this and the definition of desertion. his two buddies that were just on air, those interviews they had, totally embrace what
they're saying and the risks they had to put themselves and their buddies through in order to try to make this situation right. in order to try to recover. the presumption was that he left for whatever reasons or might have been captured and taken away. so ir respect iive of intent, they tried to make a situation right. this is about the infallibility of our justy system and those that are involved in it. it is a horrible circumstance we're about. we can disagree in many, many ways about what this result should look like and we will for quite some time. >> thank you so much. next, donald trump claiming united states is attacking isis now as payback for the new york city terror attack. is that true? and women who say protesting trump is not enough. >> i know donald trump is essential to the campaign at all, but -- >> he inspired me.
>> he inspired you. >> absolutely. she had so many children she had to buy lots of groceries. while she was shopping for organic fruits and veggies, burglars broke into her shoe. they stole her kids' mountain bikes and tablets along with her new juice press. luckily the geico insurance agency had helped her with homeowners insurance. she got full replacement on the stolen goods and started a mountain bike juice delivery service. call geico and see how affordable homeowners insurance can be. call geico 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. big thinking in the finger lakes is pushing the new new york forward. we're the number one dairy and apple producers in the eastern united states supported by innovative packaging that extends the shelf life of foods
so when we have an animal do an attack like he did the other day on the west side of manhattan, we are hitting them ten times harder. >> yet the administration has provided no evidence of that. data provide d by the pentagon shows herbally no change on isis targets and certainly not tenfold. "outfront" now, bob bair and cedrick layton. if they are hitting ten times ha harder, wouldn't that be huge and wouldn't we know about snit. >> we certainly would. there are enough correspondents out there that would tell us something is going on and you would see basically instead of 13 or ten story, you'd see anywhere from 100 to 130 flown in against isis targets and that is just not happening in isis controlled areas of syria or iraq at the time. >> bob, so if the president not
telling the truth here, what impact does a threat if only what it is, what kind of an impact does that have on isis? does it make them rethink an take or the opposite? >> oh, not at all, kate. clearly he's exaggerating. central command has said same number of attacks have occurred afterwards. not the mention the air force has run out of targets. with raqqa falling, there's nothing to hit anymore. they're hiding among civilians in part of syria, so it's the president's credibility we're talking about here. you really have to wonder what military contradicts him. central command has said nothing about this. so you have to really wobd er wonder what's going on and certainly not going to deter the israel malamic state from encou lone wolves to hit in the united states. this will continue just the same. >> because remember, the latest word is that this was an isis inspireded attack. and colonel, one thing that is
different about what happened with the terror attack here in new york city is oftentimes, isis does not claim responsibility when the attacker isn't killed in the act. this time, the suspect didn't die, of course. he's in custody, but isis is still claiming he's one of them. do you think that signals something's change d? zwl i do. and the reason i think that is because isis is basically cornered as bob was mentioning. we're running out of targets and isis has a lot less territory that they were basically controlling right now. trz and as a result, any type of athat is done in their name is going to be an attack they're going to take credit for. and that's why we're seeing them taking credit for the new york attack and we can expect them to do that i think going forward. >> bob, what do you think? >> i totally agree. the organization is gone. there is no caliphate. it's couple of weeks from now, it's going to be completely
gone. it has no credibility and anybody that conducts violence in the west in the name of islam, they're going to claim it one way or another. it's a dead end movement. i disagree, totally. >> that is a big moment for president trump. he says still, they're going to be hitting them ten times harder. thanks. next, women motivated by donald trump. why? plus, a convertgoer shot shot eye during the las vegas massacre. tonight, the details of tina frost's incredible recovery. rt . non-insulin victoza® lowers a1c, and now reduces cardiovascular risk. victoza® lowers my a1c and blood sugar better than the leading branded pill.
