2:12 am
>> reporter: good morning, alison and dave. we learned the acting attorney general matt whitaker is unlikely to recuse himself from the russia investigation. that is the thinking of the officials at the white house. no legal conflict of interest that would make it necessary for him to recuse himself. now there's also the thinking that the president would not put him in this role as acting attorney general if he was going to recuse himself. as you recall, he was upset when his predecessor jeff sessions recused himself which drew the ire of the president and that led the president to fire him recently. now matt whitaker has taken the reins of the russia probe despite be critical of it in the past at the justice department. even calling it ridiculous. as this is all going on, the president and his team are reviewing the questions that mueller's team has given them. this is viewed as one of the final pieces of the puzzle. that is all ongoing.

2:51 am
they brought up the names of democrats who just won and calling them and try to urge them not to cave to the lobbying campaign that pelosi has under way right now. we will have to see how many they can actually get. i have counted ten people who have told me personally or their offices have confirmed that they will not vote for pelosi on the floor. right now with the total of seats that democrats have won on tuesday, she can only afford to lose eight votes. democrats are expected to pick up another half dozen. she could lose 14 or 15. it will be tight. i will tell you one more thing. pelosi's office is totally unblinking on this issue. they are saying she will take this to a fight. she has two months to twist arms and try to give people a carrot with a committee assignment or some sort of fund raising money. i don't know what it will be or to twist arms. threaten people.
