. good night from nbc news headquarters here in new york. a new bomb shell report from the new york times. one of paul manafort's attorneys has repeatedly talked to trump's legal team about the questions his client was asked by the special counsel's os. president trump says he may have a plan b if they reject his request for wall funding. and senator cindy hyde-smith claims victory in a run off led by race-related controversies. ♪ good morning everyone. wednesday, november 28th.
we begin with breaking news concerning paul manafort and the russia probe. according to new reporting from the new york times, he's been briefing the president's lawyers about his meetings with the special counsel's team. he repeatedly briefed the legal team on his client's discussions even after he agreed to cooperate with the special counsel. that's according to trump's lawyers and two other people familiar with the conversation. rudy giuliani defended it as a source of valuable insight into the inquiry and where it was headed. he said in one examal that prosecutors hammered away at whether the president knew about the infamous trump tower meeting. he wants him to incriminate trump.
>> we learned the special counsel wants to scrap manafort's plea deal, claiming he repeatedly lied to investigators. a claim manafort denies. this comes hours after manafort vigorously denied a report that claimed he met with wikileaks founder several times, including right around the time manafort joined the from campaign. manafort says in part i rr never met julian assange or anyone connected to him. i rr never been contacted by anyone connected to wikileaks direct laeor indirectly. "and wikileaks posted on twitter that assange planned to sue the newspaper for libel. and questions over the
massive democratic email leak by wikileaks. it lays out information he has on corsi. in there are information about corsi to stone. in one email from early augs of 2016, corsi writes word is friend ism baes plans two more dums. >> and he also wrote to stone "time to let more to be exposed. they're not ready to drop hillary rodham clinton. in the court papers, he says he scrubbed his computer between midjanuary and early march of last year, deleteing all email correspondence that preidated 2016.
corsi said he guessed about the email dump and happened to be right. >> i believe these podesta emails would destroy hillary. why did i think they were coming out in october? because i said to myself if i had these emails, i'd use them as the october surprise. >> but you didn't know that at the time, did you? >> this is speculation. >> you didn't exactly write to him it would be drip by drip. >> there's phone conversations i had with him. >> so you essentially told stone what was going to happen. >> what i said was i thought i was giving rauj arcover story. an alternative explanation for saying podesta is going to be in the barrel. based on my research on podesta. >> so you were telling him he
could use this story -- >> absolutely. >> so the court papers show they sent corsi a plea agreement, eare questing a sentence. if he agreed to plead guilty to one count of lying to investigators. corsi says he rejected that deal. >> scott, great to have you with us on this very busy morning. let's talk about the latest developments in both that his team had been briefing the president, also what we saw a day earlier with the special counsel. how does that impact the russia investigation at large? >> it's huge. paul manafort's job was essentially running the trump campaign and handling votes from delegates when his connections to russian oligarchs became too much for the trump campaign to handle.
the major problem is that he has a very long track record of lying both to the federal government, the fbi, mueller investigation. the initial crimes, the main thrust of the problems is because he lied about the source of his income. he then lied about his ability to lobby federal agencies on behalf of his foreign clients. he has since allegedly according to the latest court filing from the mueller investigation, lied about his intent to give him the truth and real potential about engagement between trump-affiliated people and wikileaks and assange hackers. it's very, very -- >> so where does mueller go from here? the emails he has between roger
stone and c osorsi. is it pointing to being the nail? >> roger stone was a trump campaign advisor. he's part of that loose gallery of people were very much emish ammed in giving now president trump advice during the campaign. what the main question regarding roger stone and gordon corsi is on is whether they can be proven to have it -- if it can be proven that not only they knew about the crime but were coordinating with assange and wikileaks and those who can obtained these emails from the dnc, they can be co conspirators. >> thank you. >> thanks for coming in early. now to the show down over
the president's boarder wall, the president promised a partial government shut down if congress doesn't give himg him the $5 billion he's demanding. he told a washington post quote we need democrat votes to have a wall. if we don't get, i might get done the other way. we saw what we did with with the military coming in with with barbed wire and fencing and various other things. democrats put $1.6 billion on the table but he did seem to leave the door open to negotiation. >> do you think the $5 billion request by the president is unreasonable? >> they haven't even spent the 1.3 billion. they haven't spent a penny of the 1.3 billion they requested in last year's budget. this is our position. we're not negotiating in the press.
this is our position. >> and president trump is threat thing safety of teens. it concerns the tent city that was supposed to hold 360 migrant children but now holds teens in a remote desert in texas. it claims the trump administration has waved fbi finger print background checks for all the staffers responsible for taking care of the children there. he's using checks conducted by a private contractor, thereby heighting the risk that an individual with criminal history could have access to children and require them to have one mental health clinition but this tent city has one clinition for every 100 chilled relationship.
more teenagers are being held in this one tent city than all but one of the nation's 204 federal prisons. republican senator, cindy hyde-smith defeating democrat mike esp yshs. >> tonight in this victory the reason we won is because mississippians know me and they know my heart and thank you for stepping up, mississippi. i've said all along this isn't about me. this is about the people of mississippi and what's important to the people of mississippi >> hyde-smith won with 54% of the vote to become the first woman elected to congress from mississippi. she'll serve out the remaining two years with the seat returning to ballot in 2020. she was voted to replace cochran
after he zioned. giving republican as 53-47 majority. a net gain of two seats. and the president once again questions the assessment that saudi arabia ordered the death of jamal khashoggi. and weighing in whether he will meet with the crown prince later this week. and senator mitch mcconnell is vowing to block a bill that would protect robert mueller. jardiance asked-

it it comes as president trump continues to question the cia as the high confidence assessment that crown prince mohammed bin salman ordered the death adding the cew a did not say affirmatively that he did it. >> no, i haven't listened to it. and i guess i should ask you why do you think i should? what do you think i should learn from it? >> your tlr national security advisor. >> how many in this room speak arabic? >> don't you have access to an interpreter? >> i can read a transcript too.
>> so you don't think it's important. >> everybody who says why don't you listen on the tape, unless you speak arabic, what are you going to get from it? >> they're both set to attend this week's g 20 and he's open to meeting on the sidelines, his national security team says it will not happen. >> reporter: does the pds have any plans to meet with the saudi crown prince? >> no. look, the bilateral schedule is full to over flowing at this point. >> it's being called a major milestone in the battle against cancer. they're found a drug, first of its kind. here with more. >> 1-year-old are onau plaza might be one of the youngest pioneers in the world of cancer treatment. the connecticut girl was born with a rare type of tumor on the
outside of her arm. >> my whole world fell apart. like, ho, my god, why did it have to be my daughter? >> doctors said they would have to amputate,en the they tried an experimental drug. within three days something amazing happened, the tumor started to shrink. >> we were like, wow, this stuff is something else. >> reporter: the firs to treat at least 12 up tos of cancer that all have the same specific tumor mutation including breast, lung and colon. >> it works regardless of where the cancer came from as long as it has the same type of mutation. >> reporter: those that have been successfully treated with the drug have seen astounding results including derek lawry treated for a rare stage 4 cancer. within a week of take thing drug, the tumors, these black
dots, started to disappear. >> for patients that have this mutation, it is a revolution. >> we got a scan last month and everything is clear. it's exciting for us. >> reporter: the doctors believe could help many more patients in the future. >> what an incredible story. >> go toing to give a lot of families a lot of hope. our thanks to dr. john tors for that report. bull, how we looking this morning? >> a little quiet. but it is cold this morning. one of the coldest yet. this is the storm responsible for all the snow yesterday. stratten mountain had 19 inches at the top of the mountain. so the ski resorts of northern new england got crushed again and this upcoming weekend i'm sure will be packed on the slopes. as far south as the mountains in north carolina, tennessee. snow showers around pittsburgh
and numerous areas of snow heading across the new york state freeway. and off lake michigan, we got a little bit of snow. huge amounts of snow are over with. there could be delays or school delays. additional snowfall. the berkshires up through the white mountains of new hampshire. and a little bit of enhanced snow. that's isolated four to six inches in between eery and bradford and buffalo, could get four to six inches. the bigger story is that this storm has opened the door and cranked through the ohio valley and arrived in the deep south. it's interesting because the storm itself, right now the wind chill is 27. it is colder this morning in montgomery, alabama. in atlanta they're at 19 degrees.
it's almost the same as vermont. and it's still very chilly from kansas city to bismark, minneapolis, you get the picture. so today, by florida standards, it's almost cold enough you have to wear pants. 66 in miami. 27 in chicago. and if you want great weather, nice from houston to san antonio to dallas to oklahoma city. that's one of the really warm mild spots. tonight is going to be windy. tonight's the tree lighting ceremony here at 30 rock. wind chills in the 30s. no rain, no snow. >> yeah. especially when it comes to the troolighting too. perfect. on a somber note, a sad story out of the world of entertainment. the creator of "sponge bob
square pants" has died at the age of 57. he was diagnosed with als last year and passed away due to complications monday. since spongebob's inception in 1999, it's become one of the longest running american animated series ever. the show, much like his previous endeavor, has been widely lauded by viewers of all ages for the seamless blend of familiar child hood themes and adult oriented humor. he's survived by his wife and son. >> what a loss. >> and the creativity and imagination. >> something i've learned more having a little daughter. alabama remains the best team in college football but the rest of the top 10 is all shook up.

. good to have you back. let's get started with the top stories. president trump is heading to argentina at the end of the week which includes a sideline sit down with russia's vladimir putin. >> what do you expect to be on the agenda? >> with all ooff the issues we have on security issues, on arms control issues, renalin regiona
i think it will be a continuation of their discussion in helsinki. the president said yesterday the putin meeting might not happen due to the latest instance of russia aggression on ukrain. russia seized two boats off the coast of crimea, including taking the ukrainian sailers into custody. the president says hoowas getting quote a full report. adding quote that will be determinative. maybe i won't have the meeting. we're going to see. i don't like that aggression. i don't like that aggression and europe shouldn't like that aggression. they're paying 1% and they're supposed to be paying much more than 1%.
richard angle sat down with with an exclusive interview with the ukrainian president in kiev. zblt >> translator: international obligation of the united states. get out from ukrain, mr. putin. and democrats will soon lead the intel committee in the house and one may be a blocked number as they investigate possible ties between the trump campaign and rusau. adam schiff said they will have to prioritize what they stopped democrats from pursuing. the clearest example is phonericerephoneri phone records that would show whether they long to then
president donald trump. trump jr. at first said he never told his father bout that meeting and then said he could not recall whom he spoke with with that night. >> and senate majority leader is vowing to stop bipartisan legislation that would with protect the special counsel's investigation. >> the president's not going to fire robert mueller. nor do i think he should, nor do i think he should not be allowed to finish. we have a lot of things to do to try to finish up this year without taking votes on things that are completely irrelevant to outcomes. >> and before o'connell made those comments, the number two told reporters that party leaders were trying to gauge support for the bill to protect
mueller and help open the possibility of bringing it up for a vote. >> and joining us is ugt author of "the oath and the office a guide for the future president." others opposing it here. it never gets to that point where there is a vote. what's the impact to the pro? >> i think the promise you saw the senators giver that they won't fire mueller. >> it's rare sometimes when we get a glimpse of an internal document from the special counsel's office. paul manafort violating his plea deal. what's the importance of getting a sense oof the innerworkings?
>> what's worrying is it looks like they were anticipating a pardon. the president of the united states has unlimited pardon power and might be able to use it, rather than the purpose that is supposed to be about respecting others and this president might use it, unfortunately for the most self preservation idea. >> you kind of look back at when the president submitted his written responses to the mueller probe. what kind of dots are you connecting? >> this is a president i think who's very worried about the indictment of his close relatives, his friends. possibly a constitutional question about whether he can be indicted and my worry is this president is using all of the
powers not to help others but to protect humself and in the long run our system does give the president a lot of powers with the assumption he'll act with virtue and this president might use it for self interest. a lot of people talk about constitutional crisis. i think we're in one when the president uses the powers to basically evade the law. and a democratically controlled congress. you heard from abdomdam schiff. >> i think that there's a house of representatives controlled by democrats is a very significant check. a and the mere fact that there can be subpoena power, this investigation and i think there will be and should be a house
judiciary committee independent investigation of what's happening to go along side the mueller probe. what's really important about this bill as well is it potentially include as provision that would require the mueller investigation to turn over the documents to congress and we really need to find ways -- >> gets terminated. >> because the american people need to know and have a right to know the truth. >> always a pleasure. appreciate your insight. >> and is far greater than former president ronald regan. his words are part of the newly released book entitled from's enemies. this written by two of the longest serving advisors. it dives into who trump believes to be his biggest foes. the president saying the amazing
thing is you have certain people that if my name were john smith, they'd say i was the greatest president in history and i'd blow ronald regan away. >> modestly put. >> it's found itself to be the focus of president trump's ire after they laid off more than 14,000 people. -- >> quote very disappointed with general motors and their ceo, mary barra, for closing plants in ohio, michigan and maryland. nothing being closed in mexico and china. this is the thanks we get. we're looking at canceling subsidies. >> the tweet sent the auto maker's shares tumbleing. it's not clear how much gm
benefits from government subsidies or how much power the president has to overturn tax breaks. and they have a tax credit for each electric vehicle purchased but that goes away after they reach a number of cars sold which gm is expected to do. plus president trump defends his rejection of climate change, siting his own high intelligence. >> and back with a check on our forecast.

fed, i'm not happy with the fed. my gut tells me more sometimes than anybody else's brain can ever tell me. >> during that same washington post interview, the president was asked why he's rejecting the new report issued from his own administration detailing the dire impact of climate change. he says one of the problems people like myself were not necessarily such bleevs. you look at our air and water and it's a record clean but you look at china and asia, air is incredibly dirty and when you're talking about an atmosphere, oceans are very small and it sails over and blows over. there's movement in the atmosphere. there's no question. whether or not the effects you're talking about are there, i don't see it. not nearly like it is. and the government has released new video of what they

with faulty eequipment. those most at risk are in some cases the very ones starting them. >> that's one of those stories that makes you so mad. >> and every time you have one of those gender reveal parties, you have to think about it differently. >> i think of those people in the areas, when you see some of the things are being started by reckless individuals or companies. >> right now seems like it's pri pr pretty quiet. >> a man of high intelligence, bill karins. >> don't know what to say with that. >> go with your gut. >> "saturday night live" episodes continue. we're getting your attention in

president trump's top economic advisor sparked hope u.s. and china might spark a trade deal. live with more. and white house economic advisor wihlelm joins us live now with more. what more can you tell us about this? is there something to be said about his comments? >> well, what he said, essentially, is that he hopes that president trump and president xi can, quote, turn the page when it comes to the differences on trade. he said that, of course, the caveat is that that is so long as the u.s., the to use trump's phrasing, is treated fairley in the future. now what we've seen f three major u.s. indices, the dow jones industrial average and the nasdaq fall. right now, ahead of the market open, it looks like all three of them are going to open up this morning. here in europe, a bit more of a
mixed picture. in part because of what trump has been apparently saying about auto, the german business weekly, talking about the fact that he may slash fresh tariffs on the european carmakers and the fact that that has dragged down some of the markets here a bit. >> several companies in britain have called for a censored search engine in china. what more can you tell us, a lot of employees saying google stands against surveillance and sensorship and here they are creating a system that will have just that. >> yeah. for years, google said they weren't going to participate in the chinese market because of beijing's restrictions. now they are talking about project dragon. this letter was originally signed by 11 google employees,
ended up with hundreds more signing on to them. what it says was after a years of disappointments, and given google's support for abusers, that these people no longer think they can believe in the company's values. >> we'll see how that plays out. still has, a look at this morning's one big thing. and coming up on "morning joe," much more on that breaking "new york times" report that talks about what manafort said to mueller's team. >> senator chris coons will weigh in on that and the attempt to get a bill to push the investigation to the senate. with my bladder leakage, the products i've tried just didn't fit right. they were too loose. it's getting in the way of our camping trips. but with a range of sizes, depend fit-flex is made for me. with a range of sizes for all body types, depend fit-flex underwear is guaranteed to be your best fit.

mueller acceleration. there's a lot of signs pointing to a quickening pace of the mueller investigation that could set us up for a big december. we spoke to garrett graph and he points to a handful of things that happened in recent weeks. some of them are the increasing pressure on donald stogi, very similar to the russian agent maria batina who is poeblg involv -- possibly involved in a plea agreement. we had reports that mueller's aides were working furiously, including on veterans day he when michael cohen came to town. finally, mueller has president trump on record.
it's difficult for president trump to call this a witch-hunt now that he's participated. and how do you think the white house will respond knowing that president trump knows there is an acceleration. >> we've seen that even this week in his twitter account, continuing to attack the investigation, continuing to call it a witch-hunt, continuing to say why is it democrats involved in these. that is certainly in time with president trump and his allies in an attempt to delegitimize the investigation and its conclusions. >> i know axios has been looking at new figures on undocumented immigrants and the rate at which they are coming into the country. what are we learning about that? >> the latest data out now shows the number of unauthorized
immigrants in the united states is reaching a decade long low. this data is from 2016. but it does sort of go against the narrative that there's an invasion of undocumented immigrants entering the country. the real reasoning behind this is economic. most of the immigrants are freeing economies that are sort of in shambles. and most of the jobs they take in the united states haven't returned since the great depression and in mexico the economy has been stronger. what that doesn't impact as much is im.grants beyond mexico. there those economies are still damaged. >> axios has new polling of all things life expectancy in this country, just how long we actually want to live for. what is this number? >> i'll tell you what, with the stress that we've been living through the last couple of years, it may be getting

and i guess i should ask you, what do you think i'll learn from it? >> you're the national -- how many in this room speak arabic? >> you don't have access to an interpreter? >> you said me directly. what else would i learn from it?
