tv   CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera  CNN  November 11, 2017 5:00pm-6:00pm PST

5:00 pm
all right. john berman here. you're live in the cnn newsroom. vladimir putin says the russians didn't meddle in the u.s. election so that settles it. is that really the position of president trump this evening? the president repeatedly seemed to take the russian leader's side over america's own intelligence community. the president told reporters, quote, "every time putin sees me, he says i didn't do that and i really believe that when he tells me that, he means it." it's a pretty safe bet that every u.s. intelligence agency also meant it when they concluded that russia did meddle in last year's election with the goal of help being white house.te trump win the - today the cia is defending that finding telling cnn the director stands by and has always stood by the january 2017 intelligence community assessment entitled "assessing russian activities and intentions in recent u.s.
5:01 pm
elections." the intelligence assessment with regard to russian election meddling has not changed." the president on his 13-day asia trip. not only do we have this to cover, sarah, but now some absolutely extraordinary statements made from the president. we'll get to that in a second. first russia. >> reporter: john, we are fully amid a presidential tweet storm in what is morning here in hanoi. president trump and russian president vladimir putin did manage to have a couple more informal chats on the side line when they were in vietnam before they moved over here to hanoi. they talked about a number of issues and apparently russian meddling came up and apparently president trump's takeaway is they didn't do it and president trump is inclined to believe putin over his own u.s.
5:02 pm
intelligence community's a assessments. he took to twitter saying when will all the haters and fools out there realize that having a good relationship with russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. they're always playing politics. intelligence initiofficials arg foreign government interfering with the democratic process, also a bad thing. >> first north korea, a nation with nuclear weapons, the president made a statement with the words kim jong un, short and fat, all in 280 characters or less. do tell. >> well, if president trump toned down his rhetoric when he was in south korea talking about kim jong un, it is clear he now
5:03 pm
feels liberated in vietnam. so let me just read you the latest from president trump. he says why would kim jong un insult me by calling me old when i would never call him short and fat. oh well, i try so hard to be his friend and maybe someday that will happen. now, the state media in north korea did issue some scathing statements from kim jong un in the wake of president trump's visit to south korea but perhaps one of the biggest successes of this trip is we haven't seen a north korean missile test since president trump's tour but it's clear he's back to his rhetoric. >> no doubt the president will get questions on russia and also
5:04 pm
on kim jong un. it's about 10:20 eastern time. can you see it on cnn. president trump says he believes it when vladimir putin says they did not meddle in u.s. elections. this is what the fbi director, and three people the president hand picked have publicly said about the russians meddling in the elections. >> i am confident that the mu russians have meddled. >> is there any dissent on whether the russians meddled in the election? >> there is no dissent. >> i have no reason whatsoever to doubt the assessment of the intelligence community. >> i want to bring in "washington post" writer adam entis and josh rogue. adam, i want to start with the
5:05 pm
obvious here. it goes without saying that the president has now taken a different position than his entire intelligence community. not his, the entire intelligence community. they say that russia meddled in the election. they say it was done to hurt hillary clinton and help donald trump. and president trump says he believes vladimir putin. >> when intelligence began to leak out in december, he also took a very hard line and disputed it. there is a consistency here. he at different times says that he doesn't disputea it and at other times when pressed on it,
5:06 pm
he does. in taking putin at his word, he does bash out at former officials during the obama administration accusing them to be political, even though his own choices in those same vorol have backed the intelligence community's assessments. >> and he said there's nothing about taking the world of a k.g.b. colonel over that of the american intelligence community. your response? >> it's clear that president trump doesn't understand the true character vladimir putin and the regime that he runs. and that is causing president trump to make totally wrong conclusions about why -- what vladimir putin does things and
5:07 pm
says things and that lead him to pursue strategies that are unlikely to defend america's interests and national security. it's a strongman argument to say we should have good relations with russia. everyone thinks it would be great to have good relations with russia. the question is can we get there without, first of all, dealing with russian interference with our election at all and russian interference in ukraine and cri crimea and syria. president trump's efforts are destined to fail because he doesn't understand what russia is doing and what russia is doing is combatting u.s. power and influence in theaters all over the world. >> adam, josh just said the president is bringing up a strawman. let me read what he wrote tonight. he's been making statements in advance of his news conference. he said "when will all the
5:08 pm
haters and fools out there realize having a good relationship with russia is a good thing, not a bad thing. they're always playing politics, bad for our country. i want to solve syria, ukraine terrorism and russia can help." it may not be mutually exclusive you want a relationship with another major power while at the same time saying i believe the intelligence community when they say they meddled in our election. >> you can understand trump's frustration. he campaigned on the goal of having a closer relationship with russia particularly on counterterrorism efforts. and obviously the russia story, the allegations about russia's interference in the election, the findings in the intelligence community about that interference, because the allegations being investigated by the special counsel about any possible coordination with people associated with trump in
5:09 pm
that effort, that has obviously made it virtually impossible for trump to pursue what is actually a legitimate policy assault and batteryive -- objective, which may not be the same objective that hillary clinton would pursue if she won the election but he has been consistent in saying he's wanted to work together, particularly on terrorism issues. and there's no question he has been unable to do so as a result of the political atmosphere, that any move he makes to reduce sanctions or do anything else that would give russia some of the things that it's seeking in order for its cooperation, he can't do because it looks like he's doing so in some sort of payback or raises additional questions about whether or not he's somehow beholden to the russians per some of the allegations that are out there. >> josh, i want to read you the statement the president just made moments ago about north
5:10 pm
korea one more time here to get your take on it. why would kim jong un insult me by calling me old, when i would never call him short and fat? oh, well. i try so hard to be his friend. maybe someday that will happen." when i first heard this, this is just from 21 minutes ago. i thought is he trying to take the focus off the statements he made about russia or is it that he is trying to provoke kim jong un maybe into doing something, you know, silly, or is it because in some ways he seemed to hold his fire on the north korea front when he was in south korea? what's your take? >> i think it's that last one. i mean, we can't really know what's in president trump's head but the best take on people in the asia watching community, it's that when the president does things, it's mostly from a lack of self-discipline and a personal annoyance that kim jong un is saying something bad about him.
5:11 pm
the reason that's so destructive is as you pointed out, he spent this whole asia trip reorienting the policy with north korea. there's an article in "the washington post" that i wrote about what they're doing to avoid war and get to talks. it's contingent of him not upsetting the apple cart by getting into a rhetorical back and forth and that's what he just did. some people say it's a madman theory and they're playing good cop/bad cop. but the madman theory is if you're doing it deliberately. >> adam, every time i see you, i assume when you get off camera, you're going to break a big story. i want to ask you the status of
5:12 pm
the mueller investigation and whether or not the statements about russia play or have any interaction with those ves investigations? >> i don't think his meetings with putin would have implications. i think earlier comments after the plea agreement was unveiled involving george papadopoulos, who trump belittled and tried to make it sound as though he was carrying the coffee at most, those can be interpreted as an effort to intimidate potentially. that's something that might be more relevant to the prosecution down the road. but, you know, his comments about putin and him dismissing and maybe taking putin at his word is rather consistent with what trump has said in the past. >> i will note, there is an
5:13 pm
interesting article about george papadopoulos in "the new york times" today. one quick programming note. former cia director john brennan and director of national intelligence james clapper, president trump called them political hacks today. they will have a chance to respo respond. and coming up, roy moore discusses the allegations of sexual misconduct against him. he calls it a desperate attempt to sop his political campaign. what else he had to say coming up. plus president putin and powerful russian billionaire side by side at this summit in vietnam. he not just an oligarch. he's connected to paul manafort. cnn asked him about just that. i am very proud of the development of drugs that can prevent the rejection and prevent the recurrence

(avo) if yand constipation,ling and you're overwhelmed by everything you've tried-- all those laxatives, daily probiotics, endless fiber-- it could be wearing on you. tell your doctor what you've tried, and how long you've been at it. linzess works differently from laxatives. linzess treats adults with ibs with constipation or chronic constipation. it can help relieve your belly pain and lets you have more frequent and complete bowel movements that are easier to pass. do not give linzess to children less than six and it should not be given to children six to less than eighteen. it may harm them. don't take linzess if you have a bowel blockage.
5:15 pm
get immediate help if you develop unusual or severe stomach pain, especially with bloody or black stools. the most common side effect is diarrhea, sometimes severe. if it's severe, stop taking linzess and call your doctor right away. other side effects include gas, stomach-area pain and swelling. ask your doctor if 90 days of linzess may be right for you. i know when i hand them the it's gonna be scary.car but i also know that we're gonna have usaa insurance for both my boys. it's something that they're not even gonna have to think of.

5:17 pm
judge roy moore, the republican candidate for senate
5:18 pm
in alabama says he's being personally attacked. this comes after shome shocking accounts of sexual misconduct of teen-age girls a number of years ago. one of 14 years old at the time says that he sexually molested her. earlier today roy moore said that none of the allegations are true and that those making them have clear motivations. >> "the washington post" published yet another attack on my character and reputation in a desperate attempt to stop my political campaign for the united states senate. these attacks involve a minor and they are completely false and untrue. >> we go to birmingham, alabama right now. give me a sense of on the
5:19 pm
ground, what are you hearing from roy moore supporters? >> we're hearing a tone of de defiance both from roy moore and his supporters. what you heard there was a full-throated rejection of these allegations. they see it as a smear campaign launched by who knows, maybe it's these women, maybe it's the democratic party, maybe it's establishment republicans, but they see this as an effort to derail roy moore's campaign in the weeks ahead of this special election. we're hearing more and more out of washington, d.c. from republican senators that they want him to step aside. this is not someone who has done well and become successful and popular because he's ingratiated himself with washington, d.c. he's been seen as a brawler, antagonist, has twice been removed from the supreme court
5:20 pm
as chief justice. he's someone who his supporters say is being tarred and feathered and they don't believe these allegations. until they proof, they say they want him to stay in this race and they believe he can win it. john? >> also interesting, alex, there are starting to be accounts of people who know roy moore or worked with roy moore during these years. what do you hear? >> one account in particular from a woman named teresa jones who was the deputy district attorney at a time when -- she spoke with cnn today and told us it was common knowledge that roy dated high school girls. everyone we knew thought it was weird. we wondered why someone his age would hang out at high school football games and the mall, but you really wouldn't say anything to someone like that. she's saying it was common knowledge, which means there's the potential with more people to come out with some sort of
5:21 pm
allegations, which could cause a huge problem for the moore campaign. for the time being, they're standing firm and no indication he'll pull out of the race. >> and i want to start with you, wand a. -- wanda. we have a little bit of breaking news. based on the allegations, his response and what is known, i withdraw my support. interesting language from senator cassidy because this is different than we have heard from, say, senate majority leader mitch mcconnell, president trump, vice president mike pence who say if the allegations are true, then roy moore should leave. bill cassidy said he's seen enough, he's not supporting him anymore. >> make no mistake, this is a seat that senate republicans see as critical to keeping their
5:22 pm
senate majority in the years to come. so they care a lot about this. but what we're hearing from senator cassidy and a number of others that they've heard enough or seen enough, if this account of this woman who was 14 years old at the time, they believe moore could come out and they're taking their distance from this. what remains to be seen is what the voters of alabama will do if roy moore does not step aside ahead of the election in december. >> there's one bill cassidys, ten bill cassidys, a hundred bill cassidys. do they matter to roy moore? >> i don't know in a ththat ther to roy moore. it's hard to imagine if roy moore wins this leelection that the senate can avoid having a
5:23 pm
full-scale investigation of his election. it is something that i think is unavoidable. and this does not go away for republicans if he wins. and morally i think what's really striking to me about the cassidy tweet is that he cites the response from roy moore, right? yesterday was sean hannity. sean hannity did not exactly press him to the max, he did not do a tim russert or mike wallace impersonation. but nonetheless, roy moore did not dismiss out of hand the idea that he was dating teen-agers. he dismissed the specific allegation on the 14-year-old. he did not offer a very stern defense and now you have further corroborating testimony from people there at the time. >> and that's just one and that's just today. will there be more. one of the interesting notions in the the "new york times" today is that there are some republicans who want to see the governor in alabama postpone the legally possible to push back
5:24 pm
the dlate of the election, mayb get more time for a write-in candidate to succeed, more time for roy moore to get pushed out. hugh hewitt pushing this notion also. do you think there's any likelihood that these extreme measures will be taken or how would they be received? >> so far there are no end cases that the governor plans to do that. in that same article, there's a suggestion that that would not happen. i think alex -- if you look at his record, he has made some outrageous statements in the past regarding african-americans, lgbt people and he is still beloved among a number of people there. i think you would see a lot of people certainly while in the story is true and certainly what people said he did are abhorrent but i think there are still
5:25 pm
people who want to support him and go back and cast their vote for him. >> i would be remiss if i didn't talk about some of the news of the last few minutes, which is that president trump has been making statements this time about north korea, kim jong un. i want to read you this latest one. why would kim jong un insult me by calling me old when i would never call him short and fat. oh well. i try so hard to be his friend. maybe someday that will happen. >> the first time i read that, full disclosure, i chuckled. then you have to take a step back and say he's talking about a guy who has nuclear weapons potentially. is this something that's very smart? >> the question answers itself in terms of diplomacy. think about it politically. republicans in virginia, new jersey, the suburbs of philadelphia, suburbs of new york city all the way to the suburbs of seattle were buried in a political tsunami buried in
5:26 pm
white collars who do not like donald trump. the big reason they have turned off donald trump is simply because of the way he basis as president. there are policy objections, sure, but the root of the problem is a sense that he is not personally fitted for the job in temperament, judgment, values and behavior. and so every time i think this happens now, post virginia, the idea that trump -- that president trump is existing in some separate orbit and voters dissatisfied with him will be less likely than older generations will take it out on the political party. i think republicans looking at these tweets are finger nails on the blackboard counting down on 2018. >> we have have a pretty good preview of what the sunday morning shows will be like tomorrow. i'm not so sure it what the white house or republicans would have wanted. they have roy moore. every republican that sits down
5:27 pm
for an interview over the next 24, 48 hours will be asked about this. now they're all answering new questions about russia, which is why won't the -- james clapper has george brennan on to respond tomorrow to the president's statements. the president keeps on pushing these discussions which i'm not sure do him any political favors. >> you're absolutely right. this is a pattern we've seen with this white house. it was a very high-stakes group for the administration with asia. when we could be talking about the high stakes diplomatic work going on there, instead we're tacking about 0 comments or less by the president. so once again, seeing the president kind of distract from the work and we're having this conversation about his temperament and his home.
5:28 pm
certainly not hopeful. >> even the story of this trip, though, think is not necessarily a helpful narrative for the administration. i think it is going to be ten the other nations announcing a tentative agreement to move forward without the u.s. china moving forward on its own trade agreements in the region. it is a moment where as "the washington post" i think correctly put it, people are going to question whether america first in fact means america alone. >> ron brownstein, juana summers, thanks very much. of course the president will be speaking himself about two hours from now and cnn will be taking that live. >> coming up, the russian billionaire with ties to paul manafort at vladimir putin's side today. cnn caught up with the powerful oligarch and asked about the relationship with the former campaign chairman. you're not going to want to miss this. or make me feel like i'm not really "there."

5:33 pm
we have a cnn exclusive. one of russia's wealthiest businessmen with ties to paul manafort was by vad mladimir pus side today. matthew chance tracked him down. >> arriving at the apex summit, he walked side by side with the russian president, a sign of how close he is with vladimir putin. >> mr. manafort, did you commit a crime? >> trump's now indicted former
5:34 pm
campaign chairman is still controversial. >> reporter: matthew chance, cnn. is it true mr. manafort owed you millions of dollars when he was tr head of the trump campaign? >> reporter: he clearly doesn't like it but his connections with manafort have thrust this magnate into the spotlight. oleg made his fortune in the oil history. at one point he was russia's richest man. >> how did you get there so quickly? nobody understands that. and i think that's why they say there's got to be something shady here. how did it happen? >> you just need to be prepared to work 15 hours a day and take responsibility on a lot of things. >> his rocky relationship with paul manafort began more than a decade ago.
5:35 pm
one of their ventures was a plan to invest in ukraine. he sent manafort millions to buy a telecommunications firm according to documents. but by 2014 the deal had broken down and he wanted to know where all his money had gone. in a court petition filed in the cayman islands to retrieve the cash, the court documents said it appeared that manafort had simply disappeared and raised shell companies, raising concerns that manafort was heavily in douebt to the russia oligarch. it appears --
5:36 pm
>> a spokeswoman for the russian billionaire has rejected that manafort offered him private briefings while he was trump's campaign charity. he nefrd received any communication about it, she told cnn. manafort said any briefings would have been routine but no briefings took place. but it fuels reports of secret contacts. >> were you a secret back channel between russia and the trump campaign, mr. deripaska? at the height of the global financial crisis, president putin publicly scolded the
5:37 pm
billionaire, impatiently tossing him a pen as he ordered him to pay his workers. but russia so issued deripaska with a diplomatic passport. for years he was refused a visa to the united states over concerns about his alleged links to organized crimes, money laundering and financial fraud. his spokeswoman told cnn that deripaska has never been convicted or accused of any crime anywhere in the world, but she added he does confess to the currently serious crime of being russian. it's a big issue in the united states, sir. did he offer you those private briefings to try and repay some of that debt to you? is that why he offered them? >> get lost, please. thank you. >> get lost, please. matthew chance says, no, not
5:38 pm

and we covered it, july first, twenty-fifteen. talk to farmers. we know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two. ♪ we are farmers. bum-pa-dum, bum-bum-bum-bum ♪ . moments ago president trump openly mocked the leader of north korea. he wrote "why would kim jong un insult me by calling him old when i would never call him short and fat? oh well, i try so hard to be his friend. maybe someday that will happen o." the president has painted a dystopian picture of life inside north korea, calling it a country ruled by a cult. cnn's will ripley is the only western journalist in pyongyang and he got exclusive reactions from citizens there. >> reporter: in north korea where the news is under strict government control, stat med

"that's absurd," said this housewife. the reality here is very different. we are living a happy life and enjoy rights. >> reporter: when you say you enjoy rights, what do you mean by that? one of them is our leader kim jong un. he's leading us to a better

these are live pictures of the presidential palace in hanoi. shortly president trump will hold a press conference. there are a series of questions to ask about his recent comments about russia and kim jung un. first lady milania trump, she's home. for the first part of the journey she was with it president but then she travelled without him through it region ifcluding the great wall of china. >> reporter: how are you feeling
5:51 pm
one year into the role of first lady? >> it's an honor to be first lady of united states. it was very busy year and we love to live in washington. we have very busy life and it's exciting as well. i'm looking forward to work on behalf of the children. >> great and any frustrations or anything that as been unexpected or surprising for you? >> it's very exciting life and it's a lot of things you need take care of, or a lot of responsibilities. it's part of being the first lady. >> joining me cnn white house reporter kate bennet who has travelled thousands and thousands of miles to be with us tonight. talk about the first lady's trip
5:52 pm
to asia. how was it received? >> it it was received very well. it was largely ceremonial. she was at the president's side a lot of the time. she warms up and comes alive when she is not with the president, around children which is why she's made it her platform. one is that her platform and the things she said fly in the face of her husband. she's talking about teaching children compassion and antibullying and inclusion and practicing kindness and i think those are all things she's doing naturally for herself without knowing or caring really about what the president perceived personality is. i asked her straight up. i asked her communications director does she feel the need to reconcile her platform with the behavior of erhad husband?
5:53 pm
