tv   CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera  CNN  November 26, 2017 5:00pm-6:00pm PST

5:00 pm
radio interview today. >> what matters is that i am ashamed of that photo. i, she is, you know, she didn't have any ability to consent. she had every right to feel violated by that photo. i have apologized to her, and i was very grateful that she accepted my apology. >> a second woman now says franken grabbed her butt during a photo op in 2010 while he was in office. but the minnesota democrat says he did not remember that particular photo, saying it's one of thousands he's taken with people over the years. >> i'm, you know, i'm someone who, you know, hugs people. i, you know, and i've learned from these, these stories that some of, in some of these
5:01 pm
encounters, i've crossed the line for some women. >> cnn's ryan young joins us from minneapolis. tell us what else he is saying about these allegations going forward and how he plans to take responsibility. >> reporter: well, really, ana, the words that stick out to us are embarrassed and ashamed. those were the senator's words himself. everyone waiting for that 10:30 interview that will happen on tv here in the minnesota area. and then you have the interview with public radio station. there are ripples from that. people have had some reaction. hear parts of the interview, he was really frank when he was talking about some of his emotions. >> look, kathy, if you had said to me two weeks ago that, that a woman was going to say that i
5:02 pm
had made her uncomfortable, and disrespected her and one of these ways, i would have said no. this has been a shock to me. and so, you know, i, i don't know. i can't say. you know, obviously, i've, you know, felt that that women i've taken these photos with, that some weomen have said that i crossed the line. and that, for that i'm very sorry, and any, any number is, is too many. >> reporter: ana, he really could have talked to anyone for these conversations, for this interview.
5:03 pm
a lot of people want to hear interest this senat from this senator all across the country, when he was asked about the fact whether any other woman would come forward, he said look, if you had asked him two weeks ago he wouldn't have said anybody would come forward. but look what he said about gaining people's trust back. >> i'm just going to do my job, and i'm going to go forward. this has been ten days since this came out. i'm going to go forward. i'm going to take responsibility. i'm going to be held accountable. and i'm going to try to be productive in the way i speak about this. >> reporter: i also think it's important to note that the interviews did not happen here. he's in d.c. it will be interesting to see what the fallout will be and how people will digest this,
5:04 pm
especially in the minnesota area and how the rest of the people in congress will deal with this over the next few days. >> so he returns to work today, less than 24 hours. what is do t what does the future look like, the near future as he heads back to capitol hill? >> reporter: well, he talks about the idea of facing the allegations and the ethics investigation many b investigation, but it doesn't sound like he'll be stepping down. >> are people giving him the benefit of the doubt in his hometown? >> reporter: there have just been a few bits and pieces of people walking by having their own opinion about it. they felt like the 18-minute interview was pretty strong. a lot of people reading the "star tribune" reacting to that, saying that he was embarrassed and ashamed. that's what people wanted to hear. there will be more reaction when he sits in front of that camera
5:05 pm
and hear the voice and get those emotions and react to that. you know how that goes, ana. >> ryan young in minneapolis. thank you. let's turn to congressman john conyers who announced today he is stepping down from his important role on the judiciary committee. sarah gannon is with me here in new york. what are we hearing from conyers? ask >> he is denying the allegations and citing the fact that the buzzfeed story contains documents that were initially obtained by a right wing blogger. he says i deny these allegations, many of which were raised by documents reportedly paid for by a partisan alt-right blogger. i very much look forward to vin vindicating myself and my family. i believe that my presence as
5:06 pm
ranking member on the committee would not serve these ever or thes -- efforts. >> he's stepping down in that position. he's not leaving congress. mean te meantime some eyebrows were raised over competing statements from nancy pelosi. >> you could definitely say that. there's been criticism of how she handled this, right? before he announced that he's stepping down she made a statement where she's holding back on criticism. take a look. >> we are strengthened by due process. just because someone is accused and was it one accusation? is it two? john conyers is an icon in our country. he's done a great deal to protect women and violence against women, right wing is now quoting me as praising him for his work on that and he did great work on that. but the fact is, as john reviews his case, which he knows, which
5:07 pm
i don't. >> don't you, how is it that you don't -- >> may i finish my sentence? that he will do the right thing. >> now she says do the right thing. i believe he will do the right thing. since then we have learned from my colleague, m.j. lee, that nancy pelosi and members of the congressional black caucus were working behind the scenes to give him a graceful way of stepping down from the judiciary committee, laying the ground work for that. after that became public, and with we learned that he was stepping down, she issued a statement saying zeroed tolerance means consequences. i have asked for an investigation, and as that investigation continues, congressman conyers has agreed to step aside as a member. as a woman and mother of four daughters i take any accusation of sexual harassment very seriously. we are in a watershed moment on this issue, it is not a license for harassment.
5:08 pm
i commend the brave women coming forward. >> lots more where this goes. president trump is back in washington as all of this unfolds. he landed a short time ago after spending thanksgiving at his private resort in florida. there he is getting off air force one. he didn't talk to reporters, but as you know he does like to share during twitter. walk us through what the president has said today about all this. >> today the president has not weighed in on the controversy surrounding al franken and representative john conyers. he has, however, weighed in on the heated is that the race in alabama, targeting roy moore's opponent, doug jones. as you know, for the past several weeks, the white house has had a full shift, initially, echoing what other republicans were saying about roy moore, that if the allegations against him are true, then he should
Check
5:09 pm
step down. since then, we've seen more and more republicans say that for the good of the party and the good of the country, roy moore should drop out of that race, as you heard from senators tim scott and lindsey graham today. the president has gone a very different direction, not fully endorsing him, not using the "e" word but just stopping short of that. and then when asked about allegations about moore, saying moore denies them and leaving the door open to potentially going to alabama and campaigning on his ofba. he says the last thing we need is a pelosi puppet, and who wants to raise taxes to the sky. i endorsed luther strange in the
5:10 pm
alabama primary. can't let schumer/pelosi win this race. liberal jones would be bad. the president's mention of taxes, it is a huge week for tax reform. so it's interesting to see the president so far from his own party when it comes to the question of roy moore and his candidacy, ana. >> and the president will be heading to capitol hill this week. but he hasn't been tweeting necessarily about the agenda today. who is he going to be meeting with? what's his plan? >> on tuesday, the president is set to meet with republican senators, at capitol hill. it's his third time going there in a little over a month, and they're set to discuss tax reform, as you know. the senate could vote on tax reform as early as thursday. then there's another really big meeting later on on tuesday where the president is meeting with leaders from both parties. house speaker paul ryan, the senate majority leader, mitch
5:11 pm
mcconnell as well as nancy pelosi and chuck schumer. and this meeting is a pretty big deal. as you know in september, when there was a very similar meeting like this one to discuss, financing the government and the budget and the debt ceiling, the president seenessentially sidedh democrats in deciding to punt to december. so now the government will run out of funding by december 8th and they'll need an agreement by that time, not just on funding the government but the debt ceiling, and there's all these other things on the table, a dhaka soluti daca solution. the president drew a lot of kudos by working with democrats. we'll see if the air remains bipartisan this time around as you saw earlier, he tweeted about nancy pelosi and chuck schumer in a less than positive way. >> he did indeed.
5:12 pm
forrest sanches, thanks. the red state conservatives do a worst job practicing the morals they preach compared to liberals. we'll talk about this when we come back live on "cnn newsroom." factories are thinking. even your toaster is thinking. honey, clive owen's in our kitchen. i'm leaving. oh never mind, he's leaving. but what if a business could turn all that thinking... thinking... endless thinking into doing? to make better decisions. make a difference. make the future. not next week while you think about it a little more. but right now. is there a company that can help you do all that? ♪ i can think of one. ♪ was supposed to be a wake reup call for our government?sh people all across the country lost their savings, their pensions and their jobs. i'm tom steyer and it turned out that the system that had benefited people like me who are well off, was, in fact, stacked against everyone else.
5:13 pm
it's why i left my investment firm and resolved to use my savings for the public good. but here we are nine years later and this president and the republican congress are making a bad situation even worse. they won't tell you that their so called "tax reform" plan is really for the wealthy and big corporations, while hurting the middle class. it blows up the deficit and that means fewer investments in education, health care and job creation. it's up to all of us to stand up to this president. not just for impeachable offenses, but also to demand a country where everyone has a real chance to succeed. join us. your voice matters. mopping robotthe from irobot. its precision jet spray and vibrating cleaning head loosen and scrub stains. all while navigating kitchens, bathrooms and those hard to reach places. you and braava jet from irobot. better together.

(avo) if you'rand you've triedlly pain any number of laxatives, probiotics, and 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. 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.
5:16 pm
theseare heading back home.y oil thanks to dawn, rescue workers only trust dawn, because it's tough on grease yet gentle. i am home, i am home, i am home president trump today voicing fresh support for fellow republican roy moore who has been dogged by sexual assault allegations made by numerous women. quote, liberal jones would be bad, a disaster. he wants to raise taxes to the sky. is the president suggesting deep south conservatives, fond of family values should simply overlook the moore scandal? let's talk it over with nicolas christoph. we appreciate your time tonight. you write, to some degree, liberals practice the values that conservatives preach. and goes on to write, liberals
5:17 pm
and conservatives don't want teens pregnant at 16 and blow hards like roy moore don't help achieve those values. are democrats in office doing a better job than republicans at promoting family values? >> um, you know, i guess my bottom le bottom line is this, less about talking values and more about policies that put in place the dine of platform that enables people to live out their values. so the reason that so many conservative states, red states have higher levels of teen births, higher levels of divorce, higher levels of l prostitution, adultery, not because this stems from conservative values, it's really because you have lower investments in education in
5:18 pm
those states and less investment in social services. so if you don't invest in family planning programs in your state you're going to result in more teen pregnancies. so i think the measure we should seek from policymakers is maybe a little less pontificating about values and little more a living those values themselves and holding their own party account willing to those standards and b, putting in place a set of standards that make it likely that we adhere to the things we believe in, which is helping people end up in committed relationships that make us all happy and leave us to be, to live fulfilling lives. >> even evangelical christians are citing moore, athey're not necessarily speaking out as
5:19 pm
adamantly against al franken and john conyers. do you see an equivalency there? >> so you know, i think everybody is engaging in some political tabulations. and i do think that al franken's issues in particular or allegations are somewhat less grave. in the case of john conyers, we don't really know what they are. but i think it's deeply troubling that government money, taxpayer money may have been spent, $30,000, on a settlement, confidential settlement to end some charges, and i would hope that conyers would release that staff member from that agreement. but, you know, basically, i think it's problematic when each side is saying, look, your molester is worse than my
5:20 pm
molester. that's kind of what it's coming down to, everybody is making these political calculations and saying that the other guys are worse. >> let's hear what senator testimony scot tim co scott, a republican, had to say. >> it is clear to me that the best thing roy moore can do for the cun industry moountry is mo. the denial is weak, it's got and little stronger, but it is still fairly weak. in my opinion and many in the senate, it is time for us to turn the page. because it is not about partisan politic, not about electing republicans versus democrats, this is about the character of our country. i want to be on the side of right when history writes the story. >> do you think that's how republicans in alabama feel? do they share those same feelings we've just heard
5:21 pm
articulated? >> so i think that alabama republicans are genuinely troubled by the charges against roy moore. and i think there's also a sense of embarrassment at the way alabama time after teime has, becomes the butt of jokes, but there are a lot of alabama republicans who care deeply about judges and about aborks issues, and are weighing those issues against each other. and, you know, that, that calculus is something that happens on the democratic side as well as on the republican side. but i would also say that, you know, i hope that voters everywhere are going to think about these fundamental issues of right and wrong and also refresh th remember that the case of roy moore, he raised issues of the republican party nationwide.
5:22 pm
they had two senate candidates, todd akin and richard murdoch. really, really made the entire republican party seem -- issues of violence. so i think that part of the concern about roy moore in washington is a recollection of the damage that todd aiken and richard murdoch did. >> thank you. we appreciate it. >> good to be with you. >> tomorrow is the deadline for jared kushner. he is supposed to turn over documents related to the russia investigation. what might investigators learn from that, and what about speculation that michael flynn might be helping the special counsel? we'll divie into that.
5:23 pm
i am totally blind. and non-24 can make me show up too early... or too late. or make me feel like i'm not really "there." talk to your doctor, and call 844-234-2424. mopping robotthe from irobot. its precision jet spray and vibrating cleaning head loosen and scrub stains. all while navigating kitchens, bathrooms and those hard to reach places. you and braava jet from irobot. better together. hey, it's me, your dry skin. i'm craving something we're missing. the ceramides in cerave. they help restore my natural barrier,

5:25 pm
5:26 pm
5:27 pm
jared kushner has until tomorrow to turn over documents to the senate judiciary committee. you'll recall that committee says kushner left out key e-mails on wikileaks. it comes as others face the possibility that michael flynn might be working with special counsel investigators. a source tells cnn that flynn's attorneys have now stopped sharing information with other defense attorneys involved in the probe, inclusion the president's attorneys. this could mean that flynn has agreed to cooperate, maybe make a deal of some sort.
5:28 pm
let's bring in ben collins, asher angapa. i'm really interested to get your insight. you have experience and expertise. what do you make of this news that michael flynn has stopped sharing information? >> right, so when defense counsel are sharing information with each other, they're doing it so they can all stay on the same page. they're making sure that each person, and each of these lawyers is representing a different client. they know what everybody else is saying, what they're doing, how they're interacting with the prosecution. so when you stop sharing information it's basically saying i have a conflict of interest, because i may be going my own way, so i think it is a big signal that he is either cooperating or at least trying
5:29 pm
to negotiate some cooperation with mueller. >> what would flynn have to offer in order to get some kind of deal? >> well, mueller clearly believes that flynn has a lot to off, because prosecutors do not make deals unless they think they can get something in return. and flynn was a very high person, all be it for a very short period of time, national security adviser, so what mueller thinks flynn can give him will allow him to go after someone higher. when you flip someone you're going up the chain. you're never going to flip someone to go down the chain. there's only so many people higher than flynn. this means they're getting much closer to the inner circle of the white house. >> the president and potential family members as well. when we talk about flynn and any possible illegal activity he may have been involved with, a lot of it involves turkey. how does that have anything to
5:30 pm
do with russia? >> well, it's fascinating. turkey in some ways is in the same position of russia. they thought they would get what they wanted when the trump administration came in. very little has happened to fulfill that wish. on the turkey front, michael flynn was certainly, there was a lot of talk about what the conversations were about trump and turkey and policy. but the u.s. is still backing kurds, and the u.s. has done very little to help with the extradition of fethullah gulen. >> there was a little development with the president me met with turkish people and said that is going to stop, backing the kurds. >> they say actually, nothing has changed. in u.s. policy in backing syria's kurds and actually what that discussion was, which is
5:31 pm
the turkish view of that conversation, if you look at the sourcing, there is not a sense right now at this moment that u.s. policy on theory, when it comes to syrian kurds has shifted. >> so ben, i want to play for you what trump's original campaign manager, corey lewandowski had to say about this development involving flynn. >> i don't think this goes anywhere than to michael flynn and potentially his son. but people who haven't followed the rules, people like paul manafort, rick gates, mike flynn, if they have done something wrong they should be held accountable. but that's where it ends because the president didn't collude or cooperate with russia in any way, shape or form. >> so it sounds like lewandowski is saying if flynn had something illegal going on, whatever he had going on ends with him. >> that's, that would be tricky. this guy was the national security adviser for the president of the united states
5:32 pm
at the start of this administration. he was pushing for these sanctions with russia and met with sergei kislyak. and inthat's why he had to leav he lied about it. >> when in reality we learned think did. >> we see tomorrow, jared kushner where he has the undisclosed wikileaks e-mails that we don't know about. these would be incriminating potentially. we don't know that for a fact. these are e-mails involving wikileaks. if you put the pieces of the puzzle together here, which we haven't yet, but there's a guy out there whose job to do just that. >> robert mule ieller. >> if you put the pieces together, you'll see something that surrounds the campaign. if it gets to the middle of the campaign, then we have president trump. >> there are all of these
5:33 pm
denials, ahsha. there seem to be a lot of russia-related contacts that he himself has failed to detail, like the meeting with the russian banker. does that concern you? >> it concerns me. i mean, even if you took it at complete face value, ana, it means he's completely incompetent. this is a person who went to nyu law school. he ought to know that when you need to turn over e-mail, when you need to fill out a back ground investigation, you need to be completely forthcoming and repeatedly, he has not. just take the e-mails, ana. the committee has asked for any e-mails that might be relevant to russia, to the individuals that they are interested in. the trump tower meeting, these
5:34 pm
subject lines said russia/clinton, private and confidential. russia back door channel invitation. you can do a simple search and come up with those e-mails. so the fact that he's not being forthcoming is problematic. and it's surprising to me that he's still waiting for a security clearance. >> lindsey graham says president trump has a blind spot when it comes to russia, do you agree. >> >> i thii think we will see comes out. on russia there have been real splits between the u.s. and russia just in the last week, right? you had the russian foreign minister really coming out against the u.s. decision to put north korea on the state sponsors of terror list, and you also see russia really opposing a number of u.s. foreign policy decisions including on syria at the u.n. last week where there was a real direct confrontation between the united states and russia on whether to continue
5:35 pm
chemical weapons investigations. there's a difference between the policy gaps between the two countries. >> meanwhile, we have russia making this move saying that media that operates outside of their borders are now foreign agents. >> their is is just countermeas. the u.s. has state-run media outlets in the same thing in our country. the problem is not the rts and sputniks of the world. it's this covert troll farm thing that happened last year where, you know, it seemed like the shared psychosis was going on on social media, where hillary clinton was running some sort of pedophile operation at the pizza shop. and all of that was coming, most of it, was coming from wikileaks and this amplified russian troll farm. the real worry is did the
5:36 pm
campaign have anything to do with it, the dissemination of this stuff or getting that dirt into donald trump's t teleprompter. >> thank you all. we appreciate it. coming up, dramatic images of dueling volcanos on two separate continents. one of them forcing hundreds of thousands of people to evacuate their homes. amazing pictures. we'll talk about what this means coming in the "cnn newsroom." ♪ (drumsticks clattering) [lagale force winds,s absolute chaos out here! accumulations up to 8 inches... ...don't know if you can hear me, but [monica] what's he doing?
