12:00 pm
>> there are calls for an inexcellent special prosecutor to take over the russia election investigation. those calls coming from mostly democratic lawmakers. >> this comes less than 24 hours after president trump fired fbi director james comey. alex savidge joins us live from the newsroom. >> good afternoon to both of you. we are learning before being fired the former fbi director had apparently asked for more resources to investigate possible collusion between the trump campaign and the russian government. that's according to a report out from the washington post. today though the president defended his decision and mitch mcconnell rejected calls for an independent prosecutor. during a meeting today with former secretary of state henry kissinger, president trump was asked why he fired comey. >> he wasn't doing a good job. very simply. he was not doing a good job.
12:01 pm
>> after that reporters were ushered out of the room. the president said in a letter it was attorney general jeff sessions and deputy attorney general rob rosenstein who wanted to fire comey. they believe he was wrong to speak publicly about hillary clinton's e-mail investigation in july. he announced he would not seek criminal charges. because of that unconventional public announcement the fbi's reputation and credibility quote, suffered substantial damage. it's something vice president pence referenced today when he spoked about the firing. >> back to a place where we move past the difficult politics of the last year and we can move back to a place where every american can know that the fbi is able to do its job. >> comey apparently found out he'd lost his job on tv.
12:02 pm
before actually receiving his official termination letter. and up until he was fired yesterday comey had been the top official leading a criminal investigation into whether there were any ties between the russian government and the trump campaign during the election. today white house officials talked about the president's decision. >> when you go around the chain of command in the department of justice. when you throw a stick of dynamite into the department of justice, that's a big problem and one that cannot be ignored. >> in washington today both democratic and republican lawmakers are questioning the timing of comey's firing. >> at a minimum the decision to fire comey raises questions about the appropriateness and timing of firing the person in charge of an investigation that could -- i won't say would -- but could implicate the administration.
12:03 pm
>> and comey was set to testify before the senate judiciary committee tomorrow. not on the russia investigation specifically but certainly questions about that case could have come up. now that will not happen any more. the white house, by the way, has named andrew mccabe the acting director of the fbi for now. >> thank you alex for that report. joining us now to talk about this issue is east bay congresswoman barbara lee. thanks for joying us. >> my pleasure. glad to be with you. >> i want to ask about the white house deputy secretary had a briefing this morning. she said that it's hypocritical of democrats to complain and criticize comey's firing now when several months ago before the election when comey spoke out days before the election a lot of democrats then were calling for his resignation. what's changed since then? what is different about him being fired now? >> first, that's very disingenuous of the white house to say that. what's different is they are in the middle of an investigation
12:04 pm
now looking at possible collusion between a foreign power, the kremlin and the trump campaign. the investigation was moving forward. you have three individuals who have already been fired from the department of justice. you have sessions recusing himself. you have the intelligence committee chair recusing himself. the investigation was moving forward. you don't fire someone in the middle of an investigation that is so important to our democracy. >> where were you when you found out? >> when i found out yesterday, last night, let's see. it was yesterday afternoon. i was in my district working. ever here. >> you didn't get a heads up. >> didn't have a heads up. i have called for us to come back into session this week. i have issued a statement to speaker ryan saying we need to come back in congress. we need to be in session and we need to debate the independent.
12:05 pm
that could move forward with this. american people need to have faith. >> a special prosecutor is not good enough. you want a bigger commission. >> i have supported the independent commission. most democrats have supported the establishment of an independent commission to look at this investigation and look at what took place. this is serious enough i think to do that. i hope speaker ryan calls us back in. >> realistically do you think that's going to happen? we haven't heard speaker ryan comment on this. senator mcconnell dismissed the requests for an independent prosecutor. the senate and the house are controlled by republicans. what do you think is going to come of it? >> they control the show. they run the show. the house, the senate and the white house. that does not mean we have to be silent. that means the resistance has to resist even stronger and harder and some of us have to call for us to do the right
12:06 pm
thing. we need transparency. the american people need to have faith in their government just because they may try to stone wall this doesn't mean that we should not call for it and should not insist on it. also, i spoke with john dean last week and we talked about the watergate era. i was an intern on capitol hill during that period. and we talked about from nixon to trump and so on may 21st john dean will be in my direction at 2:00 at the martin luther king middle school and we'll have john dean and malcolm x talk about what is taking place and the comparisons and what we need to know as it relates to really this being a defining moment in terms of our democracy. >> one of the lines in the letter he sent to the director, former director now, caught my attention. it says while i greatly appreciate you informing me on three separate occasions that i am not under investigation. those are the presidents words in that letter. it seems as if if he was asking whether or not he was involved at all in the investigation as
12:07 pm
a president. if there was communication between those two, and the same goes for the former director as well and that he was telling the president this. what do you think of that? >> it's crazy, first of all. this is erratic, it's bizarre. i don't quite understand what's taking place. this white house is incompetent. every day there's something new. this makes no sense to me. >> you called it a constitutional -- [ unintelligible ] -- >> i think it is. that's why we have john dean coming to my district to really talk about where we are in terms of this collusion or possible collusion between the russian government and the trump campaign. this is a very serious, dangerous time and the president keeps firing people who are investigating what took place. >> one other thing i want to ask real quick. what do you make of the deputy attorney general -- the president said in that resignation letter that he was following the recommendation
12:08 pm
and that he appeared to have bipartisan support when he was sworn in about a week ago i think it was. do you believe that it was this deputy attorney general who all of a sudden said that yes he should be -- comey should be fired? >> it appears that attorney general jeff sessions who has been recused from this investigation is involved in this also. it's hard to say. again, every day something new comes out. the president says one thing. we find out something else. so who knows. what i tell you one thing, what's extremely important is the american people understand what took place. this is not a democratic or republican issue. it should be bipartisan and we should be looking tat from an independent commission. we need to be back in washington debating that. >> it's interesting you say that. our question of the day is do you agree or not with the firing of director comey and i think at last check it said 76% percent actually said no, they
12:09 pm
don't agree with it. >> it was so erratic. look at how they did that. it was cold-blooded. he found out about it either through the media or a letter -- >> watching the tv report, yeah. >> this is not how a government functions. this is a democracy, not a dictatorship. it's horrible what's taking place. >> congresswoman lee, appreciate your time. >> thank you. my pleasure. happening now in san mateo, police are warning people to avoid the area. they're not giving details except that there is police activity in that area. they expect to be out there for at least the next hour. we are waiting for a call back from the police department and we'll bring you more information when we receive is. police are holding a town hall meeting to discuss last week's deadly officer-involved shooting on market street. that shooting happened a the a subway sandwich shop. officers shot and killed a man as he was stabbing a subway employee. this is the first deadly police shooting under the leadership
