7:04 am
time. after about ten minutes, he e-mailed his assistant from the meeting asking can you please call me on my cell, need excuse to get out of meeting. kushner's meeting today with se committee today behind closed doors and he won't be under koej. the president tweeted open saturday while all agree the u.s. president has the complete power to pardon, why think of that when only crime so far is leaks against us. mr. trump's personal attorney and some top aides dismissing the idea. >> pardons have not been discussed and pardons are not on the table. >> why we are talk about -- there's nothing to pardon. why we are talking about presidential pardons when there's no crime? >> but a different message from the president's new communications director. >> i'm in the oval office of the president last week, we're talking about that. he says he brought that up, he says, but he doesn't have to be pardoned. >> as for kushner, he's expected to address reports that he tried to setp
7:05 am
he'll say, quote, i did not suggest a secret back channel. and those additions to his security clearance for curb her is expected to say it was initially submitted prematurely leaving out all contacts with foreign officials not just those from russian. congress has come together over the weekend with a bipartisan agreement to sanctions for russia. the president was initially opposed to the bill and off the weekend the top aides sent conflicting signals about whether mr. trump the support the legislation now. >> we shall see if we get clarity on that. let's focus in on that shake up of the communications operation how it will change the messages coming out of the white house and what's been a rocky relationship with the media. hallie jackson has that part of the story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. that new communications director who's making a move from wall street to washington is coming out strong against his own staff
7:06 am
leaks. annie scare much which i tells me while the mun occasion's team is not work as well as it could be, he'd like to keep everyone on but if he has to get rid of everyone, he will if he cannot get the leaks to stop. >> the man now in charge of west wing message delivering a very clear one for his own team. >> tomorrow i'm going to have a meeting with the communications staff and say i don't like these leaks and so we're going to stop the leaks. and if we don't stop the leaks, i'm going stop you it's just that simple. >> president trump's new communications director starting the workweek with a warning a crack down and a teardown on twitter deleting all his omd tweets, including ones that oppose some of the president's positions on gun control, border walls and climate change announcing it all with a mess able. full transparency, past views evolve andho
7:07 am
take this job, my politics and my political ideas do not matter at all. what matters is that i am subboard nating all of that to the president's agenda. >> he's seeming to relish his new role pushing the president's message on tv but absent from the airwaves, sean spicer who plans to officially walk out of the white house sometime in order. >> i think i have a pretty good compass and i made a decision and it was in the best interest not of just myself but for the president and this administration was to step aside and let anthony and sara lead the team. >> sara huck bee sanders now the incoming press secretary, just the third woman to hold that role throw this destruction from her new boss had some scratching her heads. >> the only thing i'd ask sara i'd love a hair and makeup person we had on friday, so i'd like to continue to use the hair and makeup person. >> responding to that dustup on
7:08 am
record, ways referring to my hair and makeup and the fact that i like the makeup artist. i need all the help i can get had the #humor. he says he will do some tv but he says sanders will be holding podium duties regularly at the briefings telling me he is not a ball hog. carson, savannah, back to you. >> got it. thanks so much. >> we all need all the help we can get. cory lewandowski served as a campaign manager and now he's with us this morning. >> good morning to you. >> jared kushner has given his account on paper he's going to talk to to the congress later about what happened with that meeting with the russian lawyer. and my question to you is, apparently jared kushner's going to say, look, i got pulled into this late, i got out there as fast as i could. does this come back to donald trump june juronior? was it a mistake for him and put others in that position? >> i think what he's talking about if you look at his
7:09 am
is that the meeting was squd to attend was at the request of his brother-in-law. it was not uncommon for him to pop in and out of meetings and there was no indication of who the meeting was going to be with or what it was going to be about. >> that's why i'm asking about donald trump jr. is he kind of the original actor here? was that a mistake of him do that? >> well clearly donald trump jr. is the one who initiated the meeting and is the one who brought them into the meeting and if you go back and look at that i think he wouldn't have done it the same way. but the notion that these meetings don't occur across campaigns all the time when they're trying to get information on their opponents say fallacy. >> but you were campaign manager, would you have take than meet something be honest, would you have? >> let me say this, i was still the campaign manager at the time andy not participate in that meeting and what i can tell is you that if i thought that it was a meeting that would have been relevant to the outcome of the campaign, i potentially would have been there.
7:10 am
thought was relevant. i don't know the individuals that were involved if the ways friend who asked donald trump jr. to take the meet, he took it as a courtesy and looking back on it i think he would tell you it probably wasn't the right thing to do but it's not a big deal because nothing came of the meeting. >> the senate just passed tougher sanctions on russia. we've got a new white house communications director seems to be casting something sort of suspension as to what the president will do. do you expect that he'll sign it? >> i haven't talked to anyone in the administration about what the president's going doing on this piece of legislation. but let's be clear. the president has syd said if there's an opportunity to work with russia so we can eradicate isis in syria and that's a good thing for us and our country. but if we're adversaries and we can't work with russia because they're punitive against us then the president's going to be tough against russia. if we have to put sanctions in place, this president's been very, very clear. his priority is america first and that hasn't changed from the day he was elected. >> let me ask you about this shake-up in the administration,
7:11 am
somewhat unexpected sean spicer decided to resign. do you think there will be more big personnel changes like that forth coming? do you have any information about that? >> well i have been very public in my criticism of the administration and the continued leaks that koumt of it and what we've seen over the weekend is that the new communications director has said he will find the leaks, he he will eradicate those leaks if the if that means that people working in those buildings are fired i think it's the right thing to do. i've been clear if you're working in that administration whether you're the guy that opens the door or the chief of staff, if you're not on the president's agenda you shouldn't be there and i have full confidence that he's going to go inside that building, find those leaks and get rid of them. that's what the president deserves and the american people deserve. >> are you going to take a job in the administration? >> i haven't been offered a job on the administration i like being on the outside so i can come on your show without any problems. >> are you still viegz the president, cory. >> i think i've been a steadfast
7:12 am
supporter of the administration and if i have a problem receiving phone calls from the members of the team i'd always be happy to take that call and give my advice. >> thank you so much. >> nicole wallace is the host of nbc's deadline. >> hi, guys. >> what do you make of this shake-up in the communications team snf course there were a lot of rumors that potentially that was just the first shoe to drop and there may be other resignations. >> it's the president's prerogative to hire and fire whoever he wants and that is someone who communicates more consistently with the way the president sees himself communicating. he's a street fighter. the president has made no secret to friends and confidants that he's been dissatisfied with the lack of aggression in terms of fighting back against stories about russia, which he maintains is a hoax. anthony when on our show said it is a hoax. so he now has someone who is very much in line with his thinking about these things. >> you heard cory say
7:13 am
on the leaks, he said he wants to change the culture is how he referred to it inside the communications divisions of the white house. how does he go about that? >> well, i'm guessing that you don't really boost morale by saying you're going to fire everybody. and anyone that covers this white house knows that it is not difficult to get folks on the phone at the highest levels at this white house to talk about what's going on, to talk about one another. and even one of the most stall wart defenders of the president said that this is just one more person sort of in the swirl. and what the real problem is in this white house is they don't have a functioning chain of command as a staff. they don't have a powerful chief of staff of that keeps everybody out of everybody else's lane. so the chhay yos say product of a weak chief of staff. this was a decision he lobbied against, he opposed with all of his might and the president made it anyway. so you talk about other shoes to drop, i think all eyes are on steve bannon and reince priebus who

vokally against the move to hire scare much which i. >> a lot more happening this morning and federal charges are expected against the driver of a tractor tramer involved in a deadly and disturbing case of human smuggling in texas. dozens of undocumented immigrants were found inside the back of a sweltering 18 wheeler. we're in san antonio with the latest on this. gabe, good morning. >> reporter: it was a truly horrifying discovery, dozens of people crammed into a tractor trailer here in this parking lot in the stifling texas eat. the suspected driver of that tractor trailer is expected to be formally charged later today. >> this morning federal investigators are trying to unravel how a human smug eling operation turned deadly. >> something out of the mufz movies you don't dpoekt see that around here. >> the grew sma scene,

there on saturday. someone climbed out of the back of the tractor trailer parked near the store and begged for water. a wall mart employee called 911. police found 39 suspected undocumented immigrants crammed inside. eight were dead, another died at the hospital. >> they were very hot to the touch, so these people were in that trailer woit aithout any s of any type of water. >> they say the suspected driver james bradley junior of clear water, florida, will be charged later today. some blame the political climate. >> the harsh rhetoric today is what is responsible for tragedies like what happened in san antonio. >> but human trafficking has been big ziz business for decades. stps reminisce sent of a case in victoria, texas, where set of people were trapped in a truck, 19 indicted. last year they investigated 2,000 c o
