tv At This Hour With Berman and Bolduan CNN November 1, 2016 8:00am-9:01am PDT
you do not need to look at the calendar, forget about it, just look at the campaign trail and you can clearly see time is running out. both campaigns throwing everything but the kitchen sink at these final days. donald trump and mike pence hitting the trail together. you're looking at live pictures of the event they'll be hitting up in pennsylvania. their show of force together to take the stage any minute now. we'll bring that to you live. up against renewed focus on her e-mail controversy, hillary clinton this morning may be throwing the kitchen sink in as
well. >> we just learned that said kitchen sink is a 60-second television spot. you're betting on e-mails, i will raise you "access hollywood." >> putting a wife to work
is a very dangerous thing. when i come home and dinner's not ready, i go through the roof. grab 'em by the [ bleep ] when you're a star, they let you do it, you can do anything. >> and because that isn't blunt enough, clinton will be introduced in florida today by alicia machado, the former miss universe who says donald trump called her miss piggy among other things. all of this happening, poll of polls showing hillary clinton with a four-point edge now. let's start now with cnn political correspondent brianna keilar. brianna, this ad is a doozy. >> this may be the most scathing ad that hillary clinton's campaign has put together, john
and kate. it's going to run in eight states. it uses donald trump's words against him. and it comes as hillary clinton has three stops in florida today, including in dade
city, where we're told by campaign official also she's going to be really targeting a demographic that can help deliver the election for her. she's going to be talking to women. women and girls. she's going to be focusing on some of the things that donald trump has said. for instance, alive scia machad introducing her, as you mentioned. also these accusers who said he's forcibly kissed or globed them. she's lost some momentum since the made clear they're looking into her top aide huma abedin's e-mails, and she's trying to turn this back on donald trump. >> all right, brianna keilar, let me ask you one question, james comey, the clinton team going hard against the fbi director still.
>> yes, they are, this is ever since james comey alerted committee heads and ranking members on the hill that there have been some e-mails found on anthony weiner's computer, his estranged wife, huma abedin, top aide to hillary clinton. the response to the clinton campaign and those backing her have been to go after comey. they're trying to say he has a double standard for hillary clinton and donald trump, specifically because the fbi has been looking, since the summer, into links between the donald trump sphere and russia. we saw the administration come out and say russia is behind these hackings of the dnc and clinton campaign, and we also have learned now from a "new york times" report that intelligence officials had found chatter between a server or a computer device in the trump organization and a russian bank. could be innocuous, maybe not, but here's what robbie mook, the head of clinton's campaign, said. >> director comey felt it was
incumbent upon him to announce that the fbi had some information he'd never even looked at but they won't reveal connections to russia. we know that the russians, based on what 17 agencies have all agreed on, that the russians stole e-mails from the dnc, they stole e-mails from our campaign, and it was james comey at the fbi who was trying to block that information. we just want all this information out there on both candidates. >> so the clinton campaign there, as you see, they want voters not to pay too much heed to what the fbi's doing and they want to really paint this as a partisan witch-hunt that is unfair to hillary clinton. >> look away, look away, the message from the clinton team. >> look over there. brianna, thank you. let's go now to cnn's jason carroll. live in king of prussia, pennsylvania, waiting for the republican ticket to take the stage. jason, why this show of force today? >> well, for a couple reasons.
first, let's talk about where we are, suburbs of philadelphia, pennsylvania. the campaign knows if they have any hope at all, they've got to win over voters in suburbs where we are right now. that's why the campaign feels it's so important for them to take their message here today. also, let's talk about that message. the message is in terms of two points. first of all, obamacare. second message, the clinton e-mails. starting first with obamacare. we have a lot of gop positions here in this room. mike pence is going to be doing a lot of the heavy lifting. he's going to be talking about some of the things that need to be repealed and replaced dealing with obamacare. also another message he's going to be talking about are those premiums. 25% or more in the state of pennsylvania and other states such arizona as according to the campaign. he's also going to be talking about bringing home the gop. bringing home gop leaders in this last stretch of the race. and donald trump himself will be here. he's going to be talking about
those clinton e-mails. he spoke about this last night, talking about clinton's bad judgment, he said not only had an effect on the country, but the country's children. talked about his son baron, saying he was offended for his son. that's interesting because if you think about the attack ad that hillary clinton has been putting out, the one where she has donald trump speaking with all of his rhetoric, children listening to some of the things he said. now donald trump flipping the script and bringing in the affected children as well. so an important message being delivered here today. the place where we are, it being the suburbs is important, the message is important to the gop as well. >> all right, jason carroll for us, in king of prussia. that's senator barrasso speaking behind him now. >> speaking forcefully. >> i heard a lot of the senator right there, not quite as much as jason. but the point is you have republican leadership, republican members up there on stage with donald trump, which is an interesting picture.
a little bit different. >> what mike pence's message is today. >> is indeed. joining us, cnn political analyst alex burns. host of sirius xm "the mayor" phillip lavigne. also a veteran of two campaigns, margaret hoover. margaret, rewind a little bit, that hillary clinton ad, a 60-second spot. it talks about the "access hollywood" tape where donald trump brags about being able to grab women and get away with it because he's famous. this is the trump card, no pun intended, that the clinton campaign can pull, maybe the last one. >> well, they're betting on it, it's ironic it happens in the philadelphia suburbs now because new polling came out this morning after that "access hollywood" tape came out, demonstrating that donald trump has plummeted there specifically because of that tape. 83% of respondent also say they
were deeply affected by that tape. so you see them talking about michigan. you see them talking about new mexico. these other states that they have said they needed to win to get to the white house are out of reach now. >> it's interesting though this kind of throwing the kitchen sink at it ad. alex, you've been doing reporting on the clinton campaign's kind of posture now in these last seven days. from what your reporting is and when you see this ad that they put out today on the heels of the national security ad they put out yesterday, is this a campaign that is confident or is this a campaign that is nervous? >> i think margaret really hit the nail on the head there in term of just how democrats and how folks who are opposed to donald trump see the electoral map at this point. you hear clinton not introducing new arguments against donald trump, not going into states where we haven't seen any kind of democratic presence before. you see her and her ally also trying to shore up the strength
they already have. trying to make sure that women stay where they are and turn out to vote in this campaign. most of what you hear democrats doing is aimed at turnout in places like pennsylvania. north carolina. we'll see clinton in arizona and ohio. again, later this week. because the way they see the map, kate, is basically everything stays as it was, a week ago, and you subtract a couple points to factor in any kind of impact from that james comey letter, she still gets close to or clears 300 electoral votes which puts her well over the winning number. now, donald trump, because he is kind of backed into a corner just geographically, is trying this in a couple places where we haven't seen hotly contested so far and frankly we probably won't know whether we'll get any results from that until election day because it's really too late to see a pact in public polling. >> just seven days from now. donald trump's words, so is there anything wrong with it?
>> the democrats are desperate. the clinton campaign's desperate. they're falling apart. the early voting, which always favors the democrats, they're behind where they were in 2012 in early voting -- >> but john -- >> yes, they are. they're behind where obama was. and trump is ahead of where romney was. that's a fact -- >> state by state, some of the states are different, everything's relative -- >> no, no, percentagewise, trump is doing better than romney did -- >> -- the democrats feel very confident, florida is somewhere where the democrats aren't doing as well but it's a state by state thing. >> listen, comey had to say this to even the tables. she ran around the country telling everyone "i was cleared." they found thousands upon thousands of e-mails they didn't turn over -- >> she found 650,000 e-mails that belonged to anthony weiner -- >> i will tell you as the chairman -- >> john, are you not listening to the words coming out of our mouths? stop, stop. >> no, these are facts -- >> yes, there are 650,000
e-mails related to anthony weiner's investigation -- john, you know i love you, but stop right now. there are 650,000 e-mails related to the anthony weiner investigation. we don't know if they're related to hillary clinton. what percentage is related at all to hillary clinton, went through hillary clinton's server. we don't know anything. just stick with the facts. you guys have a good argument without taking a leap -- >> -- james comey is going to make that an nouncement when some of those 650,000 e-mails pertain to hillary clinton, and i'm going to bet right now there are secure e-mails on those -- >> look, but you don't know, and, again, you don't know how many. mr. lavigne, mayor, go ahead. >> jonathan chaired the republican party of new york. hear what he just said? it was john -- the fbi director had to come in to turn the tables. that's what the head of the republican party of new york just said on tv on cnn. and the people of south florida who come from countries like venezuela, where they've actually seen law enforcement turn the table for elections,
should be highly concerned based on what we just heard -- >> hang on now -- john, john -- >> hang on -- >> -- terrible thing to say -- >> -- i don't believe the fbi director -- >> -- acting like he's in south america -- >> i don't believe the fbi director did this on purpose. i think he's a good guy that made a very poor decision, over 100 attorney generals came forward and said this was a bad decision by the fbi. listen, we know what's going on with the russian hacking. why didn't they release the russian hacking information? totally connected to donald trump's campaign -- >> not true. >> how would we feel if tthe ir commissioner said i feel obligated to release trump's tax returns -- >> comey should not have come out and said -- >> hold on -- >> he was wrong then -- >> bad decision for america -- >> the american people understand that it's about -- >> one at a time. >> hold on, stop. >> but look, it's a huge conjecture from both sides. what i hope republicans are wondering what the heck has
happened to our party. right here are some of these arguments, right. i feel like i'm living in this deja vu nightmare. in 2012 the republican party was telling us we were going to win. mitt romney was going to win in michigan. >> minnesota. >> well, we don't have enough republican voters to win an election. we have to win independents. we have to win women. we have to win hispanics. we have to win minorities. we need to really rethink what this party stands for and really start selling it on national elections. trying to get the fbi director to be on your side, on either side, this is not what american -- >> that is not what i said -- >> this is what you're saying, he's saying he's in it to turn the tables -- >> that's what i heard. >> he came out and said she was cleared. he needed to correct that wrong. now the tables are even. >> the tables are -- >> how do you go to -- >> if hillary clinton -- >> let's do this, let's move to a different subject, see if we can do one at a time on this one. >> good luck. >> alex burn, you're in a save undisclosed location. >> you're in a coat closet with
a handy cam. >> the clinton campaign clearly wants to talk about russia. robbie mook yesterday all but called the conference call to say. but do you think the clinton campaign is successfully muddying the waters here? >> i think the -- frankly, the panel you just heard that i listened to from a safe distance shows the degree to which the waters have just been muddies kind of across the board. i think reintroducing the e-mail issue as comey did on friday was certainly not helpful for hillary clinton. what you've seen is democrats essentially throw the kitchen sink and really multiple kitchen sinks. every kitchen sink they can find back at donald trump. the russia issue is one democrats like to talk about. there's a sense certainly among political strategists that probably moves fewer votes than some of the issues related to women and race and, you know, trump's character. but if you're talking about, you know, who can be trusted with national security, that's sort of the safe place for clinton
folks to go right now. at a tricky moment when they really do want to stop talking about the e-mails. >> i mean, but both sides just really throwing bombs left and right, at each other and just kind of these hyper bolic points, case in point, hello, everyone, listening in front of me. phil, you went hard at john j on the last topic. any connection between the trump campaign and russia? "the new york times," the trump campaign, to "the new york times," funny they're citing "the new york times," considering how much they"the , digress, said, no investigations so far have found any direct link between mr. trump and the russian government. is this just a distraction -- >> no, kate, listen, we know what's going on. we understand putin is behind, you know, donald -- >> how do we know? again, we don't know what is in the e-mails -- >> -- we clearly have seen the connection between the former campaign manager. they're already investigating the former campaign manager. i mean, come on, we know it's
there. why can't we see it? why can't we understand what's going on? >> margaret? >> we know the dnc was hacked by people from the russian government. donald trump has expressed it would be great if we had' different sort of diplomatic relationship with russia. he's tried to normalize this longtime belligerent relationship that -- i mean, who -- i grew up in the '80s. who's friends with russia? >> john? >> ronald reagan was, as a matter of fact. >> you know who's friends with russia? donald trump. donald trump in an interview in 2013 that's going around today, says that he knows and has a relationship with vladimir putin. let's listen to that. >> do you have a relationship with vladimir putin, a conversational relationship or anything that you feel you have sway or influence over his government? >> i do have a relationship and i can tell you he's very interested in what we're doing here today. i'm sure he's going to be seeing
it in some form. >> so? >> had a relationship, now he says he doesn't. >> it is imperative that the president of this country forms an alliance with countries like russia to fight isis. >> john, this was 2013 and this is directly -- >> oh, that was al qaeda, sorry -- >> no, no, this gets to what donald trump said in rallies, in the last debate, he said he has no relationship with russia, no relationship with vladimir putp, the only thing he has is vladimir putin saying nice things about him. >> that's not establishing a formal relationship with russia -- >> you're telling me once again -- >> hang on, hang on. >> do you have a relationship with vladimir putin. is the question. >> he's an international business man -- >> the answer is i do have a relationship. then said to the country in the last debate he has no rich with vladimir putin. are you telling me with should
stop believing what donald trump says? >> what he says, you can believe -- >> which is which? >> which one? >> he has a financial disclosure which discloses all of his business relationships -- >> oh, come on, one that he created himself? >> i guess you didn't read it -- >> -- my attacks -- >> everyone, margaret, alex burn, i envy your safety, thank you all for joining us this morning. >> that was fun. leapt let's do it again. donald trump's taxes are back in the spotlight. a new report offers new insight into how he may have avoided paying millions in taxes using a maneuver that is now illegal. that is next. >> plus, some candid new comments from president obama about what he thinks hillary clinton would face if she wins. why he says she'll be attacked for being moody and emotional. and just a vicious phone attack against a presidential candidate from a man who claims to be a
donald trump went to avoid paying taxes. trump avoided reporting hundreds of million also of dollars in taxable income by using a tax avoidance maneuver so legally dubious his own lawyers advised him that the irs would most likely declare it improper if he were audited. >> the move was legal at the time but has since been outlawed. here to kind of explain it and give us what we know, cnn's chief business correspondent christine romans. what are we learning? >> they are trying to put this whole scenario together, where donald trump benefits from losing other people's money. this is the 1990s. a time was trump was scrambling to save his atlantic city casino businesses. they were in free fall. eventually they went bankrupt. he had financeped t ped the cash debts. "the new york times" says he used these tactics. suggesting trump used losses from the casinos to offset taxes on other income for years and years to come.
when his casinos failed, his creditors were forced to forgive much of the debt. normally that forgiven debt is counted as income and gets taxed. "the times" says trump converted that debt into equity into his own real estate partnerships. the stock, the equity wasn't worth much, but that wasn't the point, it made the taxes disappear. "the times" described as stretching the tax law beyond any recognition. this tactic was outlawed. it's unclear if trump used it properly. if he was ever investigated by the irs for this. a top former government tax official tells "the times" since the bond holders were likely declaring losses for tax purposes, trump shouldn't be able to as well. quote, he deducted somebody else's loss, he is double-dipping big time, to be clear, it is impossible to confirm if trump used this tactic. he refuses to release his tax returns. he is the first candidate of either party in how ye40 years
make them available. he says it's because he's being audited by the irs. his lawyer says they misunderstood or misread tax laws, no news here, that's what they say. refreshes what's been happening for four weeks, this huge discussion, how he could lose $916 million, not pay any taxes going forward. that's what i think this refreshes. we don't have his tax returns. >> any, all of this would be clear if he would release his tax returns. >> back in the spotlight seven days from the election now, christine, thank you. explosive new audio. a republican senator talking to volen tiss unteers about puttin bull's-eye on secretary clinton. what the senator is now saying. >> plus, a white supremist who says he's supporting donald trump cuts a brutal robo call. a new low in campaign slander. red 97! set! red 97! did you say 97? yes. you know, that reminds me of geico's 97% customer satisfaction rating.
- i was diagnosed with parin early 2013.lly it took awhile to sink in. we had to think a little more seriously about saving money for the future and for the kids. - the income of airbnb really helped to mitigate the stress. - but we have that flexibility of knowing that if you know things get worse, we have this to help keep us afloat. - so that's very, very important for us.
my name is jamir dixon and i'm a locafor pg&e.rk fieldman most people in the community recognize the blue trucks as pg&e. my truck is something new... it's an 811 truck. when you call 811, i come out to your house and i mark out our gas lines and our electric lines to make sure that you don't hit them when you're digging. 811 is a free service. i'm passionate about it because every time i go on the street i think about my own kids. they're the reason that i want to protect our community and our environment, and if me driving a that truck means that somebody gets to go home safer, then i'll drive it every day of the week.
together, we're building a better california. cnn has obtained audio of republican senator richard burr who's locked in a tough re-election battle, joking about putting a bull's-eye on hillary clinton. listen to this. >> doesn't make me feel any better than i walked into a gun shop, i think yesterday in oxford. there was a copy of "rifle man" on the counter, a picture of hillary clinton on front of it. i was a little bit shocked at that, it didn't have a bull's-eye on it. >> the senator is apologizing. joining us with new details, cnn senior political reporter manu raju. the apology? >> yes, that's right, burr is in a tough re-election race,
surprisingly so. he is facing one of the toughest challenges in the country against a little known democrat, debra ross, a dead heat. a race that can actually determine the next senate majority. he's really trying to fire up his base and align himself with donald trump. at this private event with volunteers in wardville, north carolina, he made those comments you just played, similar to what donald trump said on the campaign trail in august, when he said the second amendment people should take matters in their own hands. unlike trump, burr is saying sorry, saying the comment was, quote, inappropriate, and i apologize for that. at the same meeting, burr also said i'm going to do everything i can to ensure clinton does not fill that final supreme court seat that's vacant now. and he promiseped ped at that he would be loyal to trump. a lot of his supporters actually praised him for being little to trump. this is a man would is aligning with donald trump when a lot of
republicans are running away from the top of their ticket. >> manu raju, thank you. >> thanks, manu. our panel, errol lewis, political anchor for time warner cable news, margaret hoover. john back with us, he did not run away, let the record show. >> absolutely not. >> john -- >> standing firm. >> john, burr apologized, something we've not heard trump do in the past when he has, not really joking terms, suggested similar things to what the senator was joking at. seeming to suggest there's a bull's-eye on hillary clinton. one time he said her bodyguard should drop all their weapons, let's see what happens to her. what do you think, should burr have apologized? >> first, donald trump has apologized. >> just a blanket apology. >> that's right, covering a lot of things. as far as senator burr, he's a good man. he will be re-elected. he made a joke. you know, it's a, you know, nra,
you know, rifle magazine, and he made a joke. don't think he was suggesting anything -- >> why do you think he apologized? >> he's just saying, hey, if it's offensive, i apologize. to make more of that is ridiculous. what we need to start talking about and what senator burr is talking about is putting americans back to work, making america safer. and this is what the democratic party has done throughout this entire campaign. they've tried to distract everyone with nonissues. >> senator burr apologized -- >> and everyone's jumping -- >> hang on -- >> he apologized, it's over -- >> we were asking you about the fact that donald trump has not apologized for that -- >> yes, he has. >> the blanket apology is one i'm going to try. i'm sorry. it covered everything. >> go to confession, john. >> i'm going to tell you, i'm not going to let that one slide. >> not my cup of tea. margaret, i want to ask about paul ryan. paul ryan said today last week
early voting wisconsin, he voted for donald trump. john kasich, governor of ohio, told us overnight he wrote in "john mccain." compare and contrast. >> well, wisconsin's not going to go for donald trump. so it was nice for, you know, paul ryan to, you know, i guess vote for the guy who he always said he was going to support and he has basically endorsed all along even though he wasn't helping all these candidates. ohio is a dead heat. most of the polling shows trump is within the margin of error, slightly ahead of clinton. we also all know a ground game can be three to five points. we also know that john kasich, the governor there, has the power to control a really robust ground game in favor of donald trump. not only has he not done that, not only has he not endorsed, he didn't support him, and then publicized he supported the 2008 nominee. this suggests if trump doesn't have the ground game, ohio could be very close. i think republicans have thought all along, yeah, trump will probably get ohio, but then he's got to get other states.
look, maybe he doesn't get ohio. >> if he doesn't get ohio, then that's a problem. >> i've talked to a lot of democrats who think donald trump looks way better in ohio than he does in other states. >> sitting governor of a state not supporting the presidential nominee is, again, one of the historic pieces of this election. >> paul ryan, after he said he voted for donald trump last week in early voting, he acknowledged despite being paul ryan, the house speaker, the most important elected republican to come from the state of wisconsin right now, he had no knowledge that donald trump is planning to be in wisconsin today. except when he found out about it just before his interview on fox like moments before. what's does that tell you? >> it tells you he's probably not going to be at whatever event donald trump is holding. it tells you he doesn't want to be anywhere on camera with donald trump which i guess has been his position for a few weeks now. >> and vice versa, it appears. >> exactly right, look, this is the schism, the choices, the
touch choices that leaders in the republican party face. we never really quite knew what the impending civil war was going to look like. it starts to look like this. you have people doing strange things. like kasich effectively throwing away his vote. >> that is just not accurate. historically, the speaker of the house travels around the country supporting his members, you know, for re-election or election. that's what they do. they don't foul the presidential candidate around their country -- >> they don't -- >> he'll be in suffolk county this week, and he'll be all across this country supporting his members. >> he did vote for trump. >> by the way -- >> i made no assumption he was following him. if donald trump is coming to your home state in the last seven days of an election, if you want a show of force to bring republicans home, that's all i'm asking. >> as a show of team work, what you do is you cover this country. as the presidential candidate
donald trump is going to cover those swing states. as the speaker of the house, paul ryan is going to move around this country to the districts. they're going to be pockets -- why would he be in new york this week? why, because there are pockets that they want to cover. that's what he's doing. to look at this any other waway -- >> let me get a little bit more sound here. in utah, in utah, there is this robo call going around by a guy who says he's a white supremist is and also says he's supporting donald trump. whatever it is. he also says he's supporting donald trump. let's just listen. >> hello, my name is william johnson. i'm a farmer and a white nationalist. i make this call against evan mcmullin and in support of donald trump. evan mcmullin is an open borders amnesty supporter. evan has two mommies. his mother is a lesbian married to another woman. evan is okay with that. indeed, evan is up porsupports
supreme court ruling legalizing gay marriage. evan is not married. i believe evan is a closet homosexual. don't vote for evan mcmullin, vote for donald trump. >> all right, we should say this is about $2,000 worth of phone calls which can get you about 190 -- >> almost 2,000 calls. >> the trump campaign has denounced this. can we just all agree this is a new low? >> ridiculous. >> crazy pants i mean on fire. >> utah's a state that's a very religious conservative state. you would think maybe a low below like this would appeal if it's a strongly religious voter or electorate. maybe the same way these sort of polarizing wedge issues, social issues may play in the south, you see playing in the south. but utah's actually different. you'd be surprised. utah passed a fully comprehensive legislation. protects gay people from being kicked out of their housing. utah not the religious conservative state that it has traditional value also towards lgbt people that you might
think, so this actually in a way is probably more im suit ill su call, if anything, it raises his name i.d. across the country. >> i want to just sit here and kind of marinade in it but john jay, do you have concerns this goes to 200,000 people? >> yes. >> and yet the campaign has completely said it's ridiculous. >> absolutely. >> i mean, that -- >> no, donald trump will have nothing of this. and in anything this is an opportunity to highlight that, that he has been wrongfully accused of these types of things. he'll have nothing to do with this. the campaign has nothing to do with this. this is one individual who's obviously a little off. it's not going to have an effect on the trump campaign. in fact, how he's handled it is going to be more towards his credibility -- >> one more piece of sound in here, president obama. went on a talk show, comedy host, asked samantha bee sort of
about the challenges hillary clinton will face in the white house if she wins the election because she's a woman. listen to what the president said. >> if and when hillary is president, what do you think will be the female equivalent of you weren't born in this country? >> that's an interesting question. >> thank you, i have a lot of those. >> i think the equivalent will be she's tired, she's moody, she's being emotional. >> it's just something about her. >> there's something about her. when men are ambitious, it's just taken for granted, well, of course they should be ambitious. when women are ambitious, why. that theme i think will continue throughout her presidency. and it's contributed to this notion that somehow she is hiding something. >> what a nasty woman. >> errol, interesting comments. >> he could have made these
comments even before this candidacy. the reality, this has been quietly shadowing clinton. there's a degree of sexism that finds its way into other channels that people sort of criticize her. a lot of what donald trump said around the notion that, oh, she's feeble, she stumbles, she needs rest and all of this sort of stuff is sort of i think thinly disguised form of sexism. it probably won't end after this election. although this would be a burden that if hillary clinton should win, she'll have to carry, much as president obama carried a burden of trying to sort of show that as a breakthrough candidate of a kind we've never seen before. he has to hold himself with dignity, demand respect. try to educate the country by his actions. hillary clinton will have that. it will be something none of her predecessors, if she becomes president, will ever have to do. >> thanks so much. always appreciate your presence on set with us. we want details and we want them now. that is essentially what democrats are saying to the fbi right now.
in the wake of the new part of this hillary clinton e-mail probe, but will the federal government be able to deliver before the election? that's ahead. plus, surrender or die, that's the message from the iraqi government to isis fighters holed up in the key city of mosul. iraqi forces are preparing to enter the city at any moment. we're going to take you to the front lines.
i won this 55 inch tv for less than $30 on dealdash.com. visit dealdash.com for great deals. and start bidding today! it's a total breach of protocol. that's why former attorneys general from democratic and republican administrations have said this was a mistake. we were told he was warned by his superiors at the justice department not to do this. now that he has opened the door, now that he has weighed into this election, we're saying let's get all the information
out there. let's get the information out on hillary clinton he supposedly might have. let's get the information out on donald trump. the voters are smart and they can figure this out. >> that is hillary clinton campaign manager robbie mook. the he is talking about is fbi director james congremey and wh robbie wants is for the fbi to get the information out regarding the search of e-mails that may be connected to hillary clinton. >> former fbi special agent who served as chief of staff for the fbi's new york office james scarliono. thanks for coming in. they've got agents investigating, they've got work ahead of them, needless to say. they've got hundreds of thousands of e-mails. they've got a warrant now for the computer to search them as it relates to possibly a review of hillary clinton's situation. what are they doing right now? how fast cap they work? >> first of all, kate, every case, every individual case, has its own tempo. there's just no way to speed things up.
there's no way to slow things down. i know we're hurdling towards an election. less than a week. but the fbi director's calculus, the individual agents, have to be hyper focused on the evidence in front of them. >> what conditions they're working under right now, "the washington post" reports that the department signalled it now wants the politically charged investigation to follow standard procedures. including a provision of updates to congress through routine channels. now they want that? i mean, can you unring the bell? >> i think the issue with director comey, first, i served under four fbi directors. two apointed by democrats. two appointed by integrity is u. he was caught in a quandary here with the election coming up. you understand there's a lot of partisan effect going on where he's lauded by one side, crucified by the other. i believe the reason he came forward with that recent letter to congress last week was
because he had given testimony, i think some fire hours to it, to the judiciary committee. and i think he felt like after answering questions about would you return and tell congress if anything further develops, i think he was compelled to do that. >> a lot of this is we don't know what's in there. but you think there must have -- must have seen something in these e-mail also related to clinton? do they have to see something, do you think, without knowing -- >> kate, great question. i think what they initially got was the metadata. they knew there were e-mails from particular servers into that particular comb puputer or device or the cloud that dumped it into the device. i think from there they saw a massive trove of them. whether or not they saw something that was, as the fbi director said, quote/unquote, significant or not, i can't say, it would be speculation. i just don't think it would be this likely he would come out right now and say the investigation had been reopened unless they had something. >> of course we don't know
exactly. that's what he's not saying. we do know fbi director james comey met with loretta lynch, the attorney general, today. or was it yesterday. the point is they talked monday, i should say, we just found that out. so how do you think that meeting went, given what we learned about the fact that justice department officials did >> once that meeting between the former president and the attorney general took place, the attorney general, in my estimation did the right thing recusing herself, thrusting director comey into is a position i've got to do something, as everybody said, is unprecedented. speak to an investigation we're not going to press for this to go forward to trial. i've got to go forward and give the american people something because of the election looming ng . >> now saying, robby mook this morning said we didn't cause this problem. james comey opened this door. it's now up to comey to explain
it. is mook wrong? >> a reason why fbi directors have a ten-year term. they wanted the director to vhae an apolitical term. i think rank and file fbi acts the ones that know the investigation was conducted without a finger on its scale, put out there. i think they're behind this director. the most communicative director we've had. >> thanks for helping us shed light on this. >> thank you. new information just in about huma abedin, the hillary clinton aide at the sent center of this new development. missing on the trail three days and one of hillary clinton's closest allies you often see her in every picture hillary clinton would take. where is she today? that's next.
broke, of course, of the fbi reviewing e-mails found on the computer of anthony weiner, abedin's estranged husband. >> plus keeping our eye on pennsylvania. king of prussia. is that mike pence on the stage? yep. expected to hear from donald trump shortly. stick around. we'll briv it to you, just seven days left to go. if you have medicare parts a and b and want more coverage, guess what? you could apply for a medicare supplement insurance plan whenever you want. no enrollment window. no waiting to apply. that means now may be a great time to shop for an aarp medicare supplement insurance plan, insured by unitedhealthcare insurance company. medicare doesn't cover everything. and like all standardized medicare supplement insurance plans,
