>> heather: they are saying his company could make a lot of money off of relationships with china and other nations as a result of the real estate. how did they handle something like that? >> that is the real issue in politics today with the federal government, a $4 trillion enterprise that spends a lot of money and many trillions of dollars more with their policies, which is due the families of people in power benefit unfairly from the decisions they make and they are privy to? trump promises he will make clear when he holds his first press conference in july he will make clear how he and his family are going to separate themselves, divorce themselves from the possibility of these sort of conflicts of interest. that's a big task when you think about how entangled, how involved the businesses are. we will wait and see. >> heather: let's talk about the confirmation hearing this week, the democrats are bowing to delay these things, they don't have the votes to kill any of the nominees. they will make it tough for republicans. what is the end game here? >> make them hurt, make them bleed, catch somebody out.
republicans hope to go fast, they want to go fast so the democrats can't bog anybody down and pick them apart. the way nominees fail is they don't get over on the first blast, instead they hang up for some reason, and there are questions and there are more questions and it drags on, there are those dreaded words in politics. we enjoy the fall conference of the president, which means they are about to get their box and leave. >> heather: do you see any major hang-ups that could derail one of these candidates? >> we don't know. to the end the democrats are not just spitting. >> heather: democrats have the majority, of course, and they have put in play the whole nuclear option, so if republicans don't all fall in line, they could be in trouble, but they will probably fall in line, don't you think? >> most of the time unless the
democrats can pry republican votes away. with the vice presidency, they have to get two every time, a 51% majority. mike pence will break the 50/50 time, so they have to get two and they hope they can get something embarrassing or awkward. put the stink on them so if they do get in office, they are less effective and less able to govern. >> heather: we know the trump team is saying the government ethics paperwork is in further nominees, so far there is the fbi stuff, but that can take a lot of time to work itself out. we will talk again to you soon. the russian hacking blame game now continues, wikileaks responding publicly for the first time the cia report confirming russia hacked the dnc. we will tell you what they are claiming. plus one of the biggest winter storms to smash the west in years comes with a vengeance. plus, forcing evacuations and causing mudslides and even taking down an icon of

>> heather: welcome back. wild weather rocking several western states over the weekend, heavy rain sparking flash flooding in nevada. look at this, hundreds of homes were evacuated near reno and mud slides stranded motorist in california. some areas seeing 15 inches of rain. and the massive storm wreaking havoc on the sequoa tunnel tree in the redwood forest that you know from the song. that was and it
fell in the storm and shatter ared when it hit the ground. the wikileaks julian assange slams the report that vad is vad putt report that he trying to help donald trump win the election. julian assange is lashing out at the u.s. intelligence agency. what did he say. >> he said intelligence in america are under a fog and don't understand what happened in the last election. assange is a controversial figure. some think he is a truth teller and others think he is a trouble maker that hurt this nation with with the leaks he is saying that the nations got it all wrong.
>> >> they are not standards of any government. they're not state parties. they do not come from the russian government. >> reporter: assange saying that the u.s. intelligence report saying that russian intelligence gave hacked e-mails to wikileaks is embarrassing in his words, heather. >> heather: republicans are warning the republican administration from being too cosy with putin. >> reporter: the member of the trump transition team is saying that while he believes that the democrats have been wrong by leaking out selectively information about the intelligence investigation, he said that the trump team should be wary of vladimar putin saying
that he has been a bad actor, and the latest episodes are not the only time russia has tried to use cyber war against the u.s., watch. >> i publicly came out and said this was the biggest intelligence failure since 9/11 to understand putin's plans and intentions. we have known that russia is a bad actor in the cyber realm. many house members warned the obama administration about russia's continued cyber attacks on on this country and they did nothing. >> reporter: the broader point is that former president bush said they looked in vladimar putin's eye and saw in his soul. and then president obama and hillary clinton pushing the re- set button. devon nuniz said donald trump needs to be wary of vladimar putin in the days ahead.
>> heather: the u.s. sending a message after iranian swarm boats get too close in the gulf. what can can our military do to calm the tensions? and what happens next? and a urgent manhunt on the way in florida. they are closing in on a man accused of killing a police officer, where that chase is headed right now. tech: don't let a cracked windshield ruin your plans.
they fired warning shots to the iran attack boats. it is the latest acts of aggression that have taken place. last january, iran detaining ten american sailors. and in august, another u.s. ships firing warning shots to avoid coalition. in september iran's navy launched a ship with a sign on the side saying the persian gulf is our house. we talked about this earlier. this is another attempt to humiliate the united states. >> they will continue acts of provocation. they are targeting on our allies in the region. they want to demonstrate that iran is the dominant pour in the
middle east and the united states is no longer the strongest regional power. that is in fact evidence to the case. i returned from the middle east and i can tell you, it is indisputable that our allies feel, believe that the united states let them down and they are truly look for much improved relationship with the new administration. and the iranians are very confident and self assured and wind fall of money as a result of the nuclear deal. they are flexing their muscle. the new administration will have to reset in the middle east and demonstrate that iranian aggression will not be tolerated. that's what the allies hope take place. >> heather: what do you tell the new administration to do about iran? >> iran is a threat to our
national interest. they clearly want to dominant and control the middle east using proxy fighter and terrorist. they had success in lebanon, gaza and syria and iraq and now in yemen as a result of proxy fighter ares and terrorist achieving a measure of influence and control at the expense of our national interest. we have to get tough. >> heather: they have taken out u.s. service members in iran through the guard fighters. that is a frightening proposition. while you are here. a couple of other issues. we sent 3500 of our soldiers over to eastern european countrieses including germany to calm allied fears. russian is assembling 30000
troops and now the new administration, now what? >> what is happening in europe with with russian provocation, the superiority in our military. best military and more money on defense countries, those are true statements, but what is also true, our super ariority is eroding and now we are adver'ses that challenge us. that's why we have a strong military. the allies in europe fear that. they are not doing their fair share. the new president-elect is right to criticize them with that. but we have to get serious in europe or the russians will continue to provoke and take advantage of what they believe
is weak european and american leadership. and show china has well in the south china sea. u.s. marines sent back to afghanistan. helman province two years after the guys had to leave and now forced to go back and shore things up there. your thoughts on that? >> 15 years of this, and the reason is, this is sad commentary. i am telling you straight out, this war is not winnable given the current policies and framework that we have and troops operate under and the lack of resources that we are providing to the afghan national security forces. we have made one flawed decision after another you should the obama administration. we have gutted the army in
particular and not left enough forces to help them. not talking about direct combat. and these are the policy decisions and manifestation of it. we'll will send senior people to provide training and assistance and prop up the afghan army that the taliban had their way. the taliban controls more territory in afghanistan as you and i speak here on national tv than any time since 2001, when we desupposed the regime. >> let's hope the u.s. marine corps can change that. the president-elect's picks head to the hill for confirmation process. two attorney general nominees, jeff sessions secretary of state nominee, rex tillerson expected

a mercedes shra. we talk about senator jeff sessions and what is he in for? >> i think it will be a tough ride but i think he will be confirm ped. susan collins is producing him and a huge supporter of his. and two against obamacare. there was a cute antidote about chuck schumer of how he and jeff sessions ride the morning bikes he's been around a long time. that doesn't mean there are not problems on the issues and voting right and illegal immigration. he wants to limit legal immigration on top of that.
aclu and sat in on his office. but in the end of the game it is a number's game. >> heather: you know the republicans on capitol hill. you see a problem with the numbers game and john mccain has concern about rex tillerson. >> let me start with senator sessions. he's part of the senate family. senator joe manchin, a democrat is supporting him. he's had a lot of bipartisan accomplishments and alongside did yourbin and kennedy. i think with rex tillerson. he doesn't come from a political background and it is an unknown. with with that being said, he's respected by high level republicans such as former secretary of state conde rice. and jim baker.
he has heavy hitters willing to say that he understands diplomacy and he had's managed a multibillion dollar huge company and bureaucracy. but the questions will know raised about russia. >> heather: what kind of answer does he need to give to calm? democrats will have their issues, and not only republicans on his time. lindsay graham and marco rubio. >> he tweeted when the information came out. he needs to say he is a fan of sanctions and supports the u.s. intelligence over julian assange and vladimar putin and say the opposite of what donald trump is saying. not about meryl strep. >> heather: last word mercedes. >> he needs to address to be tough on putin and he
understands how putin will play. he does have that experience with the exxon and russia. >> but he also said he was not supportive of sanctions and people said there is a little bit of puppeteering. >> heather: those questions will be asked and that hearing for mr. tillerson it starts wednesday. and jessica and mercedes, love to have you on. digital assistance from apple and google and do just about everything. the amount of data and information they store about users is raising privacy concern. casy stegal is live forinous dallas. >> reporter: good to see you, heather. millions of americans received digital personal assistants and amazon will not say how many
