wi-fi fast enough for the whole family is simple, easy, awesome. in many cultures, young men would stay with their families until their 40's. what has become of me could happen only in america. more possible troubles for the president's legal team as a lobbyist pleads guilty in handling foreign funds and contradicting confessions emerge. bipartisan leaders stand together as the u.s. capitol honors the late senator john mccain. also ahead this hour -- >> i'm going to take you aretha to church. >> family, friends, the former
2:01 am
u.s. president come together remembering the queen of soul, live from cnn, world headquarters in atlanta. we want to welcome our viewers here and around the world. i'm george howell. cnn "newsroom" starts right now. at 5:00 a.m. here on the u.s. east coast for the first time the u.s. justice department has publicly charged someone with helping a foreigner funnel money to a trump political event the focus on washington lobbyist samuel patton, the man you see here. he pleaded guilty on friday from steering money from a russian-backed oligarch. he pleaded ghlt to acting as an unregistered foreign act and lying to congress. trump's attorney rudy guiliani called the event irrelevant. >> what does this have to do with president trump? not a single thing. it has nothing to do with collusion. some guy who donated to the
2:02 am
inauguration. my goodness, there are about 500,000 that donated to president trump. and there are still more contradictions. george papadopoulos contradi tickets and pushed back on the suggestion that mr. trump meet with vladimir putin during the 2016 campaign. but according to court filing, quote, while some in the room rebuff george's offer, mr. trump nodded with approval and deferred to mr. sessions who appeared to like the idea and stated the campaign should look into it. george's giddiness over mr. trump's recognition was prominent during the days that followed. he requested probation instead of jail time for lying to investigators about his contacts with russians. this comes as the trump legal
2:03 am
team is already preparing to rebut the mueller report, even though no one knows when the special counsel's office will wrap up that report or what will be in that report. we are also learning the man behind the steele dossier said russian officials thought they had donald trump over a barrel. our sarah murray explains. >> reporter: with little sign the russia probe is backing up, rudy guiliani is hatching a back-up plan, the president's lawyer telling dana bash the legal team is halfway through preparing a report to rebut a number of findings from special counsel robert mueller. it's slated to include everything from collusion with russia in the 2016 election to fired national security adviser michael flynn to obstruction of justice the report of rudy guiliani's strategy to dull the blow of whatever mueller makes public. >> i'll be here with my version of the report.
2:04 am
they'll have tear version of the report. the american people will essentially decide it. >> reporter: mueller must wrap up his investigation by the mid-terms. >> if it's not over by september, we have a serious violation of the rules, you shouldn't be conducting one of these in a 66-day period. >> reporter: guiliani now admitting to cnn he has no idea what mueller's time line is. it's customary for prosecutors to go quiet 60 days before an election. it's up to the u.s. attorneys to not take over steps that could impact an election. as the investigation stretches on, trump begins to rail against the justice department. >> people are angry, people are angry. >> reporter: especially one of his favorite new targets. >> i think bruce orr is a disgrace. >> reporter: he's the justice department official who met with christopher steele or testifying
2:05 am
to a congressional hearing this week steele told him at a july 2016 breakfast they believed they had candidate trump over a barrel a claim that's in line with allegations feel e stestees in his dossier. it's been accepted as fact by the u.s. intelligence community. when it comes to that report the president's team has been working so dill gently on. rudy guiliani acknowledged to cnn on friday afternoon, it may never see the light of day, but he wants to be prepared no matter what mueller is up to. sarah murray, cnn, walk. let's talk more about this now with political analyst, peter matthews, a professor at cypress college joining us in los angeles. great to have you on the show. i'd first like to get your thoughts around the report apparently created by the president's legal team, rudy guiliani says it will touch on
2:06 am
everything in the mueller investigation, keeping in mind that investigation is still under way. no one's seen it yet. is this a flip of the phrase a good defense is an even better offense? >> it's lyme like hopefully pre emive strike the way he's thinking. it won't work. he will say mueller wasn't appointed legitimately. which he was, the court's upheld the reports by roden stein. he's trying to discredit any report ahead of time. >> this russian ol gashing, fig funneling money, patton now cooperating with investigators. should that worry team trump if your mind? >> i think it should worry them. these investigations can lead to other threads that follow. then you find there is something
2:07 am
to do with the trump side. i think guiliani will say there is nothing to do with him. you never know where this will lead. patton was pedaling influence. you go out and use a straw donor to buy ticket for this oligarch. that's a lot of money, $107 million raised by the trump campaign for the inaugural. that's really dollar democracy in my view the time of my book is dollar democracy with liberty and justice for some. it's exactly what they're doing at that inaugural. i think pattop was a part of that. >> it seems to play right into your book. i want to talk about this name na seems out of the blue for many people, bruce orr. what do you continue to make from the president within the justice delaware though, he's not a part of the investigative team on the mueller probe, steame allegedly telling orr russian intelligence claim to have mr. trump over a barrel. >> look at the explosive nature
2:08 am
of that claim. if it's true, this is dangerous for trump and/orrer is an attack target for him because of. that trump will try to stamp anyone out anyway he can that he thinks might have credible, charging him with very egregious offenses. so i think that's what's going on here, it's a strike before they hit you. trump is doing with you guiliani is here, at a higher level at this stake. >> all of this is coming into focus with new poll number, given how americans feel about the investigation, about mr. trump, let's take a look at this abc news/washington poll shows 63% of people support the mueller probe. 29% oppose it. peter,als, let's take a look at this, the president's job approval numbers. 66% in this snapshot disapprove. 36% approve. given what we are seeing here, your thoughts headed into the november mid-terms? >> well, it's pretty much expected after what we saw what
2:09 am
happened with the indictment of or the guilty plea of cohen and the conviction of manafort, that has boosted mueller's prestige in the american's public eye and credibility while the president lost prestige, he's been caught in so many lies. those numbers are staggering. 60% disapproval is the highest in presidential history and it's a dangerous sign for anyone running in november. it's a good chance the democrats can sweep the house. will the senate -- go democratic ends? we're not sure about. that that will increase the impeachment charges if the democrats take charge, it's a real possibly and finally you will have a trial to remove trump. we are a long ways the senate has to vote by two-thirds of a majority to do that. but this doesn't look very good
2:10 am
for president trump with these poll numbers actually proving that point. >> peter matthews with perspective for us out of los angeles, thank you. >> my pleasure, george. canada says progress is being made with the united states on a deal to replace the north american free trade agreement nafta, as it's better known. but the country won't sign on just yet the comments from the foreign affairs minister came friday in washington, d.c. where tensions are filled and these talks broke off until wednesday. christia freeland was asked about comments that any deem with the northern neighbor would be quote totally on u.s. terms. here's how she reacted. let's listen. >> so, let me be clear, yet again, because it's important and the importance of reiterating this is underscored by a question. canada will only sign a deal
2:11 am
which is a good deal for canada. we are very, very clear about that. the prime minister has said that on a number of occasion, including this week, that we want a good deal, not just any deal and a good deal is one which is good for canada and good for canadians. a good deal is one which reflects the canadian national interests and if which canadian values are defended. >> mr. trump had given trump until friday to sign on to a deal. when that deadline came and went, he informed congress he'd sign a deal with mexico in 90 days, he says with or without canada. in the meantime, the u.s. president is planning a trip to texas to help a fellow republican running for re-election. ted cruz is in a battle for his candidate date. you may recall when mr. trump and cruz were battling for the 2016 republican tom nation the
2:12 am
two viciously attacked each other. but all is well, according to this tweet from the president. mr. trump writes, he's quote picking the biggest stadium in texas to hold the rally and adds, cruz has his complete and total endorsement. president trump will head to ireland in november. in a tweet on friday the irish deputy prime minister saying, quote, our two countries have such strong historic economic cultural and family ties, maintaining those connections is always a top priority, end quote. mr. trump is chance a canceling. u.s. politicians remember the late senator john mccain. >> john mccain deserves to be remembered as he wished to be
2:13 am
remembered. a patriot who served his country. a man, gentleman, of the senate, but also a man of the house. a navy man. a family man. a man who made an enormous difference in the lives of countless people. a man of conviction. a man of state. >> in just a few hours time, another memorial service is set in his honor. plus, singers, politicians, friends and family of aretha franklin come toke to celebrate the queen of soul's life and legacy. a look at this memorial when cnn "newsroom" returns.
