lawyer under george w. bush. you have got a lot of things to say about how president trump has conducted himself in office since becoming president as it relates to ethics but you think these particular tweets have crossed a particular line. >> i do. he's back to work, i see. golfing and tweeting. but the problem here is if he's going to send out multiple tweets attacking andrew mccabe for various things, you know, there's just no argument that mr. mccabe did anything wrong. his wife ran for public office. his wife has the right to run for public office and yes, even as a democrat, and that doesn't mean he has to quit his job or get a divorce. and the attacks on mccabe are really unjustified. then you know exactly why he's doing it, because mccabe is a material witness in the mueller probe. apparently director comey came back and talked to mccabe or shared with mccabe some of his experiences dealing with president trump and president trump's insistence on loyalty and the intimidation of director comey, and so he's a material witness here. i think it's critically important for president t

part of george w. bushen second term. welcome. matt, according to the reporting you did, white house counsel mcgann failed to convince sessions to stay in charge of the investigation and then the president erupted in anger in front of numerous white house facials saying he needed his attorney general to protect him. mr. trump said he expected his top law enforcement official to safeguard him the way he believed robert f. kennedy at attorney general had done for his brother john f. kennedy and eric holder had done for president barack obama. what does this tell you about the president and how he views the role of jeff sessions? >> that's it. one of the more important things to come to light in the story. not necessarily what mueller is looking at, interesting in and of itself, but what it says about the president's view of what the justice department should be. i mean, since the watergate scandal and the nixon era, presidents of both parties accepted and understood that the attorney general, there should be a bright line between criminal investigations and the white house. the idea is

morning. we know former president george w. bush called scalise's wife late last night and we do expect to hear again from the lead surgeon, who's been the man taking care of scalise within the last ten minutes or so. they just came out and said, this might be closer to 3:15 than 3:00. so ali, we'll get back to you. >> you'll keep an eye on it for us. garrett hake at the hospital at med star hospital. we're following some important changes that have just announced by president trump during a speech in miami in the last hour on the united states cuba policy. now, the president is rolling back some of the changes that were put in place by the obama administration. he said he's canceling them. it's not really true. the policy changes include ending individual travel designations to cuba and channeling economic activity away from the cuban military. other types of educational travel will still be allowed, but people have to go in groups. very similar to how it used to be in cuba. a short time ago, the president laid out some of his plans. >> we will very strongly restrict american do

cycles. many republicans marvelled at the spectacle of gillespie, a one-time senior adviser to george w. bush who helped deliver a message of inclusion as gop chairman in 2004, a year in which bush won 44% of the latino vote in this country morphing into a trumpist republican. gillespie who ran for the senate in 2014 and lost that year by just 1% to democrat mark warner, he lost last night by ten points. some of the headlines virginians woke up to, quot

since ronald reagan and george w. bush tried it. nothing trickles down. wealth continues to grow at the top because they get all these advantages. >> when we -- we had the treasury secretary say just the other day when asked, do you still believe in trickle down economics, he said yes. we have had example after example it doesn't work. tried it in kansas most recently. the rising tide seems to raise yachts, not dinghies that most people live in. >> and despite the experience, this is one of those economic theories to have been tried and actually shown to be a complete hoax, notwithstanding, and the republicans keep on keeping up with it every time they can. donald trump and the republicans are saying right now if you reduce taxes on the wealthy and corporations you'll get more jobs. there is no evidence that actually happens. in fact, there's evidence even slightly to the contrary. bill clinton raised taxes, and we had the longest period of job growth, 22 million net new jobs during the clinton administration. so there's no real relationship between tax rates and job growth. what we

the arrest, or with the charges against george papadopolos, able to dismiss him as a low-level volunteer. 2345 is impossible to do with mike flynn, because mike flynn was the opening act at trump rallies. mike flynn led the lock her up chant. one thing the white house can not do is suggest mike flynn, national security adviser to the president, was not influential. ty cobb has to take the other road saying this is all about mike flynn and mike flynn's activities. go to ken delanian, following this. the question most people have at this point, why would michael flynn have not been honest with the fbi if his argument is that he was doing this at the direction of senior white house transition official we now know to be jared kushner? what's the benefit in lying to the fbi about this? >> reporter: right, ali. a couple possible explanations for that. one, mike flynn knew it was wrong. not as a matter of law, who's heard of the logan act? that 1799 law making illegal for private citizens to negotiate with foreign governments but knew that as a matter of american tradition. one admini

in our discourse today. the budget director under president george w. bush writes about that in a new "washington post" op-ed piece. the headline reads "is anyone ever wrong anymore?" ? joining us, current president of purdue university. i just want to talk to you under normal circumstances about the tax cuts because you're kind of an expert, but i think you're hitting on something actually more important to our discourse right now. you write in this "washington post" op-ed, steady doses of viewpoint reinforcement lead not only to a resistance to alternative positions but also to a more entrenched, and passionate way, in which thoughts are held and expressed. even in a time that you've been out of the federal government, this has become more serious. not a government thing. it's a society thing. >> it is, ali, and i'm hardly the only person troubled by the growing division. some say polarization of our country. and it's been accompanied by i think an unmistakable, not well documented, closed-mindedness increasing resistance to alternative thoughts. and we can argue about whether i
