2:01 am
domestic violence. axios is reporting that some strongly encouraged him to stay and fight for his position which is a key gate keeper to donald trump. porter said he never misrepresented anything to chief of staff john kelly. >> that does not square with kelly's defense. some insist porter misled him. that unnamed member of congress said porter promised kelly the story concerned verbal and emotional abuse. not domestic violence. after days of speculation of the future of kelly, kellyanne conway said this to jake tapper. >> i spoke to the president. i told him i would be with you today. he said please tell jake i have faith in chief of staff john kelly and i am not searching for replacements. i saw that all over the news. i have faith in him. >> the president weighing in on the rob porter scandal. he did not identify the white

2:03 am
the president's statement drawing heated response from jennie willoughby. she writes, everyone wants to talk about how i am not to be believed. as trump is a model of kindness and forgiveness. i forgive him. thankfully my strength and worth are not dependent on outside belief. the truth exists whether the president accepts it or not. the ranking democrat on the house intelligence kmcommittee will hear concerns over the democratic memo. this is a rebuttal alleging fbi surveillance abuses. the white house last week barred publication of the democrats memo claiming it has classified information. democrats calling that hypocr y hypocrisy. the fbi warned against releasing the republican memo and the white house did it any way. the version of the

2:05 am

2:06 am
>> we will see if it is a story of 2018. supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg says the me too movement will have what she calls staying power. here is what she told poppy harlow at columbia university. >> i don't think there will be a serious backlash. it's too widespread. my concern is that it shouldn't stop with prominent people. it's amazing to me that for the first time women are really listened to because sexual harassment had often been dismissed as well she made it up or she's too thin skinned. so i think it's very healthy development. >> leaders of the single digena

2:13 am
invitation to president moon jae-in. we have paula hancocks live in pyeongchang with more. good evening, paula. >> reporter: hello, dave. it is not just the invitation for the south korean president to head north. there is also an invitation which apparently has been accepted by the ioc president. so thomas bach, the olympic committee president, is expected to go to pyongyang. this invitation extended in january when the north korean delegation wanted to nail down the details for them to come to pyeongchang. suddenly the charm offensive does appear to be doing what north korea wants it to do. they have sent kim jong un's sister down here. she has been hailed by the world's media. i spoke to one governor who met her a few times while she was
2:14 am
here. he said the talks with the north kore koreans and south koreans. she is calm and she doesn't speak very much. when she does, she is accurate in her words. it was clear she was speaking for her brother kim jong un. and talking about whether the u.s. is left on the sideline. they are still in tandem. >> thank you, paula. >> let's bring in josh roggin. >> good morning. >> you are the guy who broke the story. north korean diplomacy news. united states potentially could sit down with the north koreans without any pre-conditions? >> i spent five days in japan and south korea with vice president pence. he was sending a clear message about the brutality of the north
2:15 am
korean regime and the charm offensive should not work. behind the scenes something else going on. in two meetings with moon jae-in, one at the blue house and one in the figure skating house, they agreed on moving forward with the engagement with pyongyang after the olympics. more meetings and then potentially down the line with direct talks with the united states and north korea. the agreement was this. south korean president agreed not to release pressure or sanctions on north korea just for talking. based on that assurance, vice president pence encouraged him to continue with the engagement and said the united states is open to talking with north korea. it is a small window and opening after months and months of tension. it is something that's different and significant that happened
2:16 am
privately in south korea. >> a major reversal. the vice president telling you quote the maximum pressure campaign will continue and intensify. if you want to talk, we'll talk. what happened to fire and fury and all the rhetoric from president trump? >> two things. i would say there is a lot of different messages from the administration. last month, president trump said he doesn't see anything wrong with talking to the north koreans per se. he said talking is fine. secretary of state rex tillerson said we should have the talks about talks. talks without pre-conditions. what is new here is we worked that out and endorsed that the at white house level in conjunction the south koreans. the break with south korea and the united states. this goes a long way to fixing that. that is what mike pence was doing in south korea. making sure the south korean government and u.s. government were on the same page. there are a lot of pitfalls coming.
2:17 am
sanctions and north korea could shoot a missile anytime. they probably don't want to talk about denuclearization. they want all of those good caveats to say we are not at peace yet. if you want to avoid war, you have to sit down and talk. that's what mike pence is saying. >> if you have the north and south talking and potentially talking after the olympics, does that leave the u.s. on the outside? is that the north koreans screwing a bit with the americans? >> that was the north korean goal and that is what the south korean president and mike pence are trying to avoid. there is still some game left to be played. keep in mind that the north koreans are trying to split the alliance. president moon is trying to pursue the narrow opening to avoid war without leaving the u.s. behind. that is difficult to do. what mike pence is saying as long as you keep up the pressure
2:18 am
and stay together on increasing the sanctions on north korea while we're talking to them, which is new, we put off the pressure and then talk and release the pressure in change for talking. mike pence says if we keep the pressure and talk at the same time, he is okay with it. >> extraordinary. considering these games opened with north korea putting on a military parade showing off the long-range ballistic missiles. have they laundered their crimes and reputation through the olympics? >> interesting. >> it is a great question. because that was what mike pence was doing in public and negotiating in private. he is trying to stop them from doing that. all of the coverage was kim jong un's sister is nice. she smiles. look at her. she manages to say a few nice things. that's out of mike pence's control. he cannot make people listen to his mantra of the brutal north korean regime. they are a brutal and evil regime. you don't make peace with your
2:19 am
friends. you have to make peace with your enemies. bouncing those two ideas in your head at once this is a terrible regime and we should remember that. we have to talk to them unless we want to go to war. that is the delicate balance. >> fascinating. come back. thanks, josh. 19 minutes past the hour. two american snowboarding members taking home gold for the team usa. we have coy wire in pyeongchang with the bleacher report. i'm alive, i'm alive ♪ ♪ i'm alive, i'm alive ♪ ♪ i'm alive, i'm alive ♪ ♪ this is what it sounds like ♪ ♪ whoa-oh-oh, i'm alive ♪ ♪ alive! gives you more vitamins and minerals than leading brands. ♪ i'm alive, i'm alive ♪ ♪ because when you start with more, you own the morning. alive!

2:45 am
good morning. >> reporter: hello, christine. it is interesting because there is that invitation for the south korean president to head north. we know there is an invitation for the ioc president. this is the head of the international olympic committee. we understand from his spokesperson that thomas bach will be going to pyongyang. he was asked on january 20th when the two korea met with the ioc to figure out how it works with the delegation of athletes coming to pyeongchang. no date set at this point. there is that invitation for the south korean president as well which came from kim jong un's sister. we have seen a lot of her the past few days. she is now back in pyongyang. i spoke to the governor of the province in the meetings. meetings were warm and soft. it was like brothers and sisters together. we hear from the south korean officials to make sure the u.s. is involved with this and they are also engaged in the discussion which north korea. also we heard from the scene
2:46 am
your diplomat with knowledge of north korea that they thought it was a missed opportunity that the u.s. vice president mike pence was here and sitting meters away from the north korean delegation and no interaction between them. >> fascinatinfascinating. paula, thank you. it is 7:45 in the evening in pyeongchang. >> let's bring in josh roggin. his body thinks it is 7:45 in the evening. you just got back from pyeongchang. first, let's talk about this breaking news you have in the fascinating piece in "the washington post." when you ask most american what is they think about the u.s. and north korea relationship. they think president trump saying various things like this. >> i would get china to make that guy disappear in one form or another very quickly. >> north korea best not make
2:47 am
anymore threats to the united states. they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen. >> rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. >> so a bit of an evolution from what the president has said there numerous times and what the vice president told you about the possibility of u.s. and north korean talks. what did he tell you? >> i was with vice president pence in japan and south korea. he met with president moon jae-in at the blue house on thursday and the speed skating rink. he told me in the conversations that he managed to bridge the gap between u.s. and south korea on whether or not further engagement with north korea can proceed. you showed all of those quotes by donald trump. you could have shown one in january where he said talking with north korea is fine as far as he is concerned. you may have shown one by
2:48 am
secretary of state rex tillerson who said we should sit down with north korea without pre-conditions. there is an evolution going on in the trump administration. heading into last week's diplomacy, they still had not been on the same page as south korea. that is the gap that mike pence and moon jae-in bridged in the meetings once in the blue house and once on the speed skating rink. it represents a small opportunity with a chance of diplomacy to move forward with the south koreans and eventually, possibly, with the u.s. and north korea directly. it is not a solution to the problem, but it is a step in the right direction. >> it is also unclear how durable it could be. you have different voices within the administration saying different things. in cairo, secretary of state rex tillerson said it is up to north korea to decide when it is ready to engage in sincere talks with the u.s. does that differ from what we have seen? where does that leave he us? >> i think that is 100%
2:49 am
consistent with what vice president pence is saying. he is saying we're ready to talk. he will not relieve the sanctions unless you move toward denuclearization. that is what vice president said to me on the plane. again, that is what secretary of state rex tillerson said for a long time. vice president pence is one of the hawkish members of the administration. i went with him in april and he was singing a different tune. now here we are. we will talk if they want to talk, but they should not expect any presence just for sitting down. >> let me ask about the sister kim yo-jong. what role does she have here in the diplomacy? >> she was the tip of the spear of the north korean charm offensive. she dominated the news.
2:50 am
