7:10 am
is the poison that exists here. the feeling that members of congress can be accused of anything and they don't have due process. >> what does that say about the power of the speaker? >> i don't think this is an issue of paul ryan versus the congress. i think it's an issue of how best to pursue an agenda that the public expects you to pursue and not get sidetracked with issues such as this. >> so you've spoken, frank, with members of both parties. what's the mood on both sides? >> it's questioning. no one knows what to do. on the republican side, are they going to come together and complete the agenda that they ran on? they made an awful lot of promises that they have to deliver. and on the democratic side, the question is whether to fight, compromise, or do some of both. >> turning to democrats, what are they going to could in terms of trying to either approve or stop nominees of the president-elect? >> on the senate side, they're going to have a number of conversations in the last 24
7:11 am
hours. you have about ten democrats that are willing to work with president trump, not just on the nominee, but on other issues. but they're nervous that they're going to be attacked by the base. they're going to be attacked by bernie sanders and his supporters. so if i were add vievising them tell them to pick one or two of these trump nominees to focus on. and don't just simply oppose. because the american people won't appreciate it. when you're elected president, you get to have your cabinet, but if there are one or two people who aren't qualified or capable or have conflicts of interest, hold them accountable. not the entire cabinet of nominees. >> is that likely to be rex tillerson? >> i've heard him. i've heard others. unions want to take on the secretary of labor nominee. environmentalists want to take on the epa nominee. different people want to take on different individuals. in the end, charlie, i predict
7:12 am
that all of them, all of them, will pass. but i think that you're going to see three or four that are going to have avery rough time over the next four to six weeks. >> frank, let's talk about obamacare for a second. the president-elect has promised to repeal obamacare. but data from the "wall street journal" this morning indicates that a lot of people that supported donald trump also depend on obamacare. doesn't that create problems for him? >> the challenge here, and this is the number one issue where the republicans voted for donald trump to repeal it. and independents want parts of it to remain. and the two part that is matter the most are children being able to stay on their parents' plan unless 26. and preexisting conditions. the public wants those two components. so the question is, if you repeal it or, or keep those two, have you done what conservative republicans do by changing the health care law. >> frank, new year, new beard,

year. this was the scene at hard-hit miami international airport monday night. passengers who just spent hours in the air, spent hours more in crowded lines. all because of a computer shutdown which delayed their processing with customs. >> it was insane. it was like a line of 1,000 people or more. it was absolutely zbikable. >> reporter: passenger john phillips posted pictures of the chaos to twitter prompts a response by the miami airport. john, thanks for your patience. customer border protection is air wear of the situation and handles it. but responded, hardly. no information, no regulation, no water. shameful actually. at 10:00 p.m. eastern, miami international tweeted this, system up and running. will take time for passengers to be processed. many airports affected tonight. among those experiencing similar delays were airports in boston,
