himself from participating in investigation. president trump standing firmlyr behind his attorney general. g joining us now from our studiosi on capitol hill catherine cherie herridge chief intelligencege correspondents for the fox newsn channel. we continue to learn more about this much what's the latest?e tl >> steve, i was the news conference yesterday at theth justice department when thee attorney general announced heden will recuse himself from any any investigations into the russiani meddling and did he so on thesoo basis that he had been part ofar the trump campaign and too muchc of a conflict he was to stay in the position. pit what's significant here is thatt he did give us more details about two meetings he had withit the russian ambassador, one, i would describe assort of a large group situation where he hadree given a speech. it was at the convention and hea was mingling in the crowdling afterwards but more specificalli this meeting on capitol hill inn september which the russians had requested and based on thebasedt timing it does look like the lik russian ambassador was targeting

the election.ctn he said now in hindsight that hh should have clarified hisfied h response and he will do that now to the senate judiciary he didhave two meetings but he d feel he crossed any lines lin because during the course of thu meetings the election never came up. >> how does the perception ofion this make a difference down then road for a president hard on tht media but this didn't come outoo now until after the media med reports surfaced the white house said something did happen? >> that's right. just a couple of things here if i can.of thi the attorneyca general saidd yesterday he was already aea considering recuse sal in manyna case prior to the report iort believe it was first by the washington post about theseut meetings.. second, if we look at the timinn here, it really does appear thaa there's more evidence now of this coordination and targeting of -- of trump campaign campa associates by the russians.he r all of this went down in thein t first week of september. ste this meeting between sessions si
8:10 am
in washington.hito this was also when thenhe t candidate trump was giving an interview to rt russia today the propaganda arm of the russian rn government, and it was also as a you can recall at the height ofi the wikileaks when they wereey dumping all of these e-mails-m from clinton campaign manager john podesta.esta that first week of september isi very important and i think theht way the data lines up now iss that there was a targeting of mr. sessions at that time by th russians and as you point out,io even if nothing was said, this t is a great way and the russiansn are very good at this, of makink mischief simply bite appearancei of that meeting actually actuall happening.ha >> i think that's a great way t put it with the mischief becausu we don't know which directionti this is going to go now but when you hear of other names michael flynn, jr. read cosh they are t brought into the mix now.ght more administratinion officialst may not be fire but it's shouldering. >> this is something that isis s going to continue to linger. lin the question is whether it'st's going to cause more people in pn

recuse themselves or takerak themselves out of policy decisions or to ultimately losel their position as was the case c with retired general michaelic flynn. as we look at this, i would say there's also a little balance bn that's necessary.essary democrats are calling for thell attorney general to resign but b if we think back a year to the e situation with then attorneyorne general loretta lynch and shehe met with bill clinton on the tarmac one week before hillaryor clinton's fbi interview, there were no calls really by they democrats for her to take t herself out of the case or to resign from that position.ost so unfortunately we have kind oo a low bar now if you will. >> right. >> in this case. ing iner sing in per spec to tiff no doubt. >> that's right. >> catherine herridge, always good to talk to you.. >> you're welcome. >> 8:11.>> we take look at hugh jackman's final x man movie logan good ad spoiler alert kevin loved it. li >> actor and singer tray chaneyh will be with us he's

8:20 am
obama care and tax reform are nn sure thing, and those are keysey to whether this is a successfuls first year for the president ort not. >> and the democrats of coursefs are watching senator chris val hold len joining us earlier thit week and saying, yes, the speece was great, but lip service because the president seemed too contradict his words with whathw he has done so far. so what does he really need to o do president trump in making man good on some of the points hee made in that speech? >> well, job one clear systemles obama care because that's thecae first thing that they are going toar tackle, and people in the house speaker ryan they're talking about repealing andbo ri replacing getting legislationisn through by the end of thisfhi month, by the end of march, but there's a real disagreementgrmet among republicans and they can c do this because of this budget reconciliation rule they don'ton need democratic votes in the v h senate. they can do it with just theirhr 52 republicans in the senate.ent but there's some real
