6:03 pm
contact sport politics full contact sport when two mix i am afraid contact doesn't work out well here is the question i have for some kneeling players, where were you in protesters when washington high school washington state high school coach got fired because he led in a volunteer prayer after the game and got down on his knees with the players, to say a prayer got fired for that. so i am wondering where is the left defending him they are not they are defending the people who disrespect the flag that is what it is when they use national anthem as point of protest. maria: last week we wereing watching a young a young boy's game, they were really 8 years old they were on their knee, so even these young kids are being told do this, even if they don't know what they are protesting they don't even understand why you do stand up and respect american flag.
6:04 pm
>>. >> you got to wonder who told thus 8 year olds they are somehow disadvantaged are mar enginelived playing football at 8 terrible to spotlight children in this for me i am frustrated that nfl owners don't have courage to say to players look, you are paid well, you are at work, we stand for the national anthem if you want to protest a much in streets on your time, do whatever you want to do you are an american you can do that i respect that. i just don't respect it during the institution of the playing of a national anthem honoring of flag for me and i think for most americans, that is the time when we set aside all of our personal political views, and we respect the unifying force of our flag national anthem frankly the anger directed towards donald trump in this is why he is president right now because there are a lot of americans who are fed up with a lot of the
6:05 pm
multimillionaire football players and others. >> making 100-million-dollar 150-million-dollar contracts over three years or something incredibly lucrative contracts part of the reason this is big money, advertisers pay up big money to watch these games, that is why earlier you said, the average nfl player earns 2.1 million dollars, the average nfl team worth 2.34 billion dollars, and nfl alone has to pull in almost five billion dollars, from television fees. from cbs, walt disney espn fox directv pull in that kind of money because of huge ratings but, now, those ratings are down, because maybe the owners or maybe players forget what they are protesting you know what? the fans have not forgotten pushing them away. >> no they haven't they haven't forgotten at all that
6:06 pm
is why a lot of fans are abandoning watching not buying merchandise, i am happy to say my dallas cowboys are still standing i will continue to watch them, and i am so proud of them for not joining into this nonsense. maria: but governor while most americans i would say agree that you stand and you respect the american flag because it represents our tough courageous men and women who went to fight for our freedom, and ultimately war and whos till tehostility. >> peel don't want the president in this fight with everything gooding on from north korea, to the health care battle to the tax reform package expected next week, should the president be doubling down in tweets this morning and continuing this fight in a that is what i am
6:07 pm
wondering. >> i would probably say leave it, it is not worth your time but talking about donald trump everybody should know this in the event of figured it out donald trump is not a person who likes to exercise great restraint when it comes to opinion especially like this we expect it, almost like this maria. when the nfl play you know somebody is going to get hit really hard when someone goes after donald trump somebody is going to get hit really hard i don't have any -- surprise about it, i frankly think possibly he can spend his time tweeting on things like health care bill, north korea, and i hope he does. maria: now, robert kraft is one of the president's i think allies, he is the owner of the new he england patriots been to white house with the president i think a mixed situation when it comes to some of these owners and support for the president, bob kraft has been in the president's corner others not so much. in terms of the nfl owners what is your take on a where
6:08 pm
this goes? there is bob kraft right there first row right here. >> i just think that a lot of owners are feeling the pressure that they have got to line up with their players, who are really angry about a lot of this i also wish that they would think about what they are saying caddell said something ridiculous he talked about how nfl is a unifying force it isn't anymore it once was but football and baseball, and basketball to become political arms we lose something, in the sport we go there to escape the political the divisive stuff same with arts, when arts become a platform for politics, rather than music acting lose something why can't we have arenas in which we come together that is what sports arts have historically been some want politics in every arena frankly i think ruin it for the rest of the people would like to juenjoy sports
6:09 pm
enjoy arts we have to fight about it unfortunate. >> more he divisiveness, kwie question on any getting involved in the issues at hand governor in terms of tax details released as well as health care bill on life support right now what are your thoughts is this going to confuse things? get in the way? >> you know -- i don't think it is really going to affect the those particular pieces so much as it is that the atmosphere in congress so tough nothing to do with sports just that you got republicans who don't remember why they were sent there sent there to get rid of obamacare sent there to push things back to the states, graham-cassidy isn't perfect but it can be fixed, we can't fix obamacare it is spiraling to the surface of the earth going to implode a lot of people are being hurt by it. and that is why i hope republicans will start realizing that if they don't do the job they are sent to do on taxes and obamacare, by

as you appointing out tax reform, relief so many things to be done, very frustrating situation. >> you've got to get through budget before you even get to tax reform how does that look right now. >> i think it looks very good that is why i am anxious to get health care dealt with little bit to do that i have been meeting with others we have a plan to get tax reform to the senate floor i think a good plan will bring together house, senate white house we've got to turn to that quickly if we get it done got to be done before thanksgiving to take effect next year. >> what are the debates going on? we are understand the president is going to release details this week of the white house plan with treasure second mnuchin corporate rate 20% down from obviously 35, a pass-through llc at 28%, and then you will see most deductions going away. are you seeing pushback in the senate in terms of agreeing to the elimination of those
6:16 pm
deductions? >> well i am sure going to come up with what he get to specific deductions there is sacred cow in those there as you know the thing i like to see is lower rate, that will be part of this, and you know i think you will also eliminate some of the arguments about reducing taxes on super wealth i don't think that is part of the package i think that helps us, you never know we may get you bipartisan support. >> if the president keeps out with a plan to cut highest rate on an individual, from 39.6 to 35% but you also eliminate the deduction state and income -- income tax doesn't that offset any cut in rates for the rich? >> that is my sense of where they are trying to go they are not trying to make this -- all that tax breaks for the wealthy it has to affect the broader economy corporate rates pass-through, sand simplicity lower rates for average working person
6:17 pm
desperately need that. >> do you think we will get a tax plan i will be successful in terms of getting a tax reform bill to the president's desk by year end. >> absolutely i just don't think maria there is all the controversy surrounding this health care bill, i mean that we've got to address that, we are going to address it, but it is without cooperation of fellow republicans extremely frustrating. >> i know you want to get a bill over finish line i get that but are you comfortable signing on to a bill graham-cassidy that leaves most obamacare taxes in place. >> i don't like it at all i don't like leaving any taxes in place i am interested in progress there are people hurting in my state what i am keeping my focus on. >> i can ins let's talk about your state runoff coming up tuesday, we invited moore on program so viewers can see both of you and he declined. what is the case, make the sales pitch why should why should your state vote for you? >> well, clear choice between

6:19 pm
where he made the comment about the nfl, saying you know get those sob's off the field and that automobile spark-- tha sparked a lot of controversy did you know that was coming. >> i did not know that was coming i wasn't surprised very well recessed alabama strong milt very patriotic state in alabama support our military, it was incredible rally i think right on about it, and i have no problem with those remarks. >> now players are pushing back saying we have our freedoms that is free country if i want to get on one knee i will, i am allowed to do that how do you answer that? >> well, that is a free country you don't have to go to nfl game you don't have to watch them i think people are voting, turning it off people of our country, they like to see some people particularly privileged people with great opportunities to show respect

longer, if they order strikes on united states, this comes after the foreign minister spoke with general assembly yesterday calling president trump quote mentally rerangered saying insults make strike on u.s. mainland more about. >> thanks for joining us. >> yes. >> is it reaction to ail this governor? >> well, i have never seen this level of brinksmanship personally insults from leaders themselves. and i don't think that is health i don't like the president of the united states insulted i don't like kim jong-un making these enormous threats and carrying out with missile and nuclear tests. this is not conducive to diplomacy i think part of kim jong-un's strategy to deal only with the united states, the north koreans i dealt with them for years they are very fragile, they want to be the
6:25 pm
big players in the geological, with the united states not with china, not with south korea not with anybody else, so i think reaching this level of very heated rhetoric eventually if you try to i negotiate tamp things don going to be very difficult so you know i think the president advisers i like general mcmaster kelly seem very sensible people they are trying top tamp the president down i am reading those reports, that makes sense. don't get into personal insults with kim jong-un. because this is what sets north koreans off, those personal things that calling our i remember father called -- by a president now madman "rocket man" let's talk negotiate instead of insults that are infantile also at the same time, very destabilizing to a region that you know is very, very worried about
6:26 pm
exploding. >> right, what is the next step though in terms of negotiating haven't we been negotiate for a long time where has it gotten us he is still testing missiles why testing missiles what do you think this guy is thinking? >> well, what he wants to do maria, he wants to reach a level his highest negotiating nuclear level to be able to say that with an icbm missile he can hit u.s. mainland i think now can hit guam alaska the u.s. mainland has been -- he wants the utmost negotiating strength coupled with putting china aside south korea aside. deal with the united states. >> why? >> what is he dealing what is he doing? for what what did united states do to him. >> i think that he wants to do another nuclear deal like happened in the clinton administration in exchange of
6:27 pm
reducing nuclear efforts you give north koreans some kind of relief of sanctions you give them some kind of economic assistance energy this was a package of six countries gave them then the good nice in clinton agreement you are not going to like this for nine years north koreans didn't build nuclear weapons then got out of the it that is where we are now. maria: i think you make a really good point we know that just this weekend, iran is testing its own missile, and you know the president has talked a lot about this, iran deal, being terrible, so iran tests new about ballistic missile hours after showing off at military parade what do you think that was all about first i have that question then i want to ask you about this iran nuclear deal. >> well, i think that was to send a message to the world and to the president after his u.n. speech, look, you know if you are going to get out of a nuclear deal, we are going to develop our missile capacity,
6:28 pm
with a what i think the president needs to do is keep the nuclear deal. iran is complying with it but negotiate on stopping iran, funding terrorism -- >> can you really say iran is complying? can you really say iran is complying? >> they are complying. the pentagon says they are complying the agency complying on nuke deem everybody agrees missile issue is separate a u.s. resolution s they should comply we should push them to do that don't give up on nuclear deal we don't need nuclear iran and nuclear north korea out there. >> what is the response from u.s. then at this point what should it be toward north korea and toward iran? >> well -- towards north korea. find a way a short term dialogue with north korea. make sure that they freeze their nuclear development, nuclear weapons some kind of the leading the needle because we say to north korea we're
6:29 pm
not going to talk to you until you give up your nuclear development, we are not going to do that maybe there is something in between. maria: what is the nuclear iran deal wasn't that supposed to be what it was about? the nuclear deal was iran has stopped developing their nuclear weapons in exchange for lifting saings, so far, iran has complied, where they are not behaving is in the region, with saudi arabia, with yemen with syria, they are hurting us everywhere, so i think negotiate put pressure on them, separately with european allies with russia, china to that signed nuclear agreement don't give up nuclear agreement we already have that we have that in our pocket, it seems to be working nothing is perfect. >> what did you think of china's latest move in terms of these of bank should we pit more pressure on china to help rein in north korea what should that look like more sanctions?
6:30 pm
>> look i do think this is one part of the president's policy on north korea that makes sense. china, has leverage over, not enough to make them get down on their knees, has pressure on them they can control a lot of energy seafood, their north korean workers that work in china, we try to get an oil embargo couldn't get it done at u.n. but a cap on oil, that pressure i think slowly working but is it enough for china to stop north korea's economy? have no i don't think china wants to do it, but china is moving the right direction that is the policy front of the president that i think makes sense now you need diplomacy you need some kind of deal, you can't continue these tweets, and this tension, and these missile tests, and you know people of south korea and japan and we've got american troops there everybody is very worried about what is going to
6:31 pm
happen. >> to be clear missile tests are coming from iran and north korea. so -- >> yes. >> right. >> to respond to this governor good to see you thanks so much ambassador, governor bill richardson coming up chairman of the senate judiciary committee raising new questions about the fbi russia probe the decision to wiretap former trump campaign manager paul manafort was trump campaign warned ahead of time i talk with former attorney general michael mukasey on that as we look to "sunday that as we look to "sunday morning futures", ag muk

6:33 pm
and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of ketoacidosis or an allergic reaction. symptoms of an allergic reaction include rash, swelling, and difficulty breathing or swallowing. do not take jardiance if you are on dialysis or have severe kidney problems. other side effects are sudden kidney problems, genital yeast infections, increased bad cholesterol, and urinary tract infections, which may be serious. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. so now that you know all that, what do you think? that it's time to think about jardiance. ask your doctor about jardiance. and get to the heart of what matters. they always refer to me as master sergeant. they really appreciate the military family, and it really shows. we've got auto insurance, homeowners insurance. had an accident with a vehicle, i actually called usaa before we called the police. usaa was there hands-on very quick very prompt. i feel like we're being handled as people that actually have a genuine need. we're the webber family and we are

♪ maria: welcome back new twist in russian investigation, senate judiciary committee chairman chuck grassley writing a letter to fbi asking if it took any steps to warn the trump campaign, about possible russian connections to some top officials, grassley says bureau did warn senator john mccain, 2008 presidential campaign, about about connections judge michael mukasey former u.s. attorney general, a pleasure to see show you that good morning. >> thanks so much for joining us why is that important who got warnings. >> i think it shows about the fbi was or a was not following usual practices with respect to this investigation if there was a warning of the mccain campaign in 2008, then
6:36 pm
presumably the same procedure should have been followed with respect to the -- the -- the trump campaign. maria: right. >> notably, i think the mccain camp people in the camp deny there was such a warning doesn't mean it wasn't given. >> one of the issues that i have been really struck by is all of these wiretaps, all mr. comey's wiretaps congress needs to learn how fbi modeled in 2061 campaign how about fbi meddling what is your take on a full manafort being wiretapped before and after the election after the president won. >> the take on that is that a part of a counterintelligence investigation to determine whether russians wered meling in the campaign if it was counterintelligence investigation the question is, obviously whether he was wiretapped or overheard on a wiretap that targeted somebody else i don't think we really
6:37 pm
know that yet but if he was, wire tapped the question i guess whether he was pursuing contacts with rurngs claims that he was -- talking to -- a russian connection to russian organized crime the same guy talking to the -- the mccain campaign in 2008. >> judge all of this speculation about i know, where the meddling was who is speaking to who, we have no evidence of any crime here. and you have made the point um tooep times in the past in order to hire special counsel you need evidence of a crime where is evidence of a crime what is robert mueller doing. >> two excellent questions the regulations specific that if special counsel it has to be on a finding there was a criminal investigation that is warranted that is predicate to have a criminal investigation
6:38 pm
you've got to have a crime, so a crime, the there has been reciprocity when special counsel is appointed he or she has to be provide specific statement of fact that would launch investigation in other words,, these are facts we are investigating this is the crime we are investigating, we haven't seen that, and that is that is a problem. maria: meanwhile, we know that susan rice unmasking so he frequently saying unmasking on daily basis, she wanted to know all of the names of the people who they were wiretapping, and she was telling colleagues then you've got all this wiretapping, of -- by jim comey, of course, under oath jim comey said i am not aware of any wiretapping, so is there a problem there. >> i mean he went in front of congress now trey gowdy says i want him back in that seat we need to understand, why he said one thing and it is completely opposite than what we are learning now.
6:39 pm
>> i don't know -- precisely what he testified i think you have to go back an determine whether he was specifically aware of this particular are counterintelligence wiretap. if he was, then obviously there is a problem there. but the issue is whether this was a counterintelligence investigation the use -- >> what is your take on president's ability to actually you know, get his issues through when you've got lots of people running agencies within governments who are not agreeing with him they are not on his team in fact they might be object holdouts? >> well, problem is that president unfortunately has not staffed up the way he should some due to the delay in the white house some due to congress's delay in confirming people but whatever the cause of the delay the fact is that there are a lot of holdovers, in the -- in all the
6:40 pm
departments of government, from the obama administration, obviously don't share or some of them don't share the president's agenda some are faithfully computing it there are people in justice department for example pursuing cases civil rights cases within the trump agenda but they may personally oppose but, nonetheless, pursuing them diligently. >> is there a limit in terms of when bob mueller can say i have done this work i have done that work i have done this work? i am done, there is no more you know investigation to be done, because we have not founded it how long will this go on is this going on for the president's entire term in office four years or even eight years where you have special counsel poking want to go interview people. >> excellent question unfortunately there is n limit. >> nolit? >> none. >> howuch is this costing judge. >>e don't know t office i
