if you'd have told me three years ago... that we'd be downloading in seconds, what used to take... minutes. that guests would compliment our wifi. that we could video conference... and do it like that. (snaps) if you'd have told me that i could afford... a gig-speed. a gig-speed network. it's like 20 times faster than what most people have. i'd of said... i'd of said you're dreaming. dreaming! definitely dreaming. then again, dreaming is how i got this far. now more businesses in more places can afford to dream gig. comcast, building america's largest gig-speed network.
5:01 pm
you are in the cnn newsroom. thank you for being with us on this sunday. i'm ana cabrera. details of the family of former president george bush. barbara bush is not well this weekend. the family's honoring the choice to remain choice instead of care at the hospital. cnn's special correspondent has been in touch with the family and tells us why the bush family is likely making this announcement now. >> her health has been so frail. she's been in and out of hospitals quite a few times in the last year. most recently on good friday she went in. she was having some trouble breathing. so i think that what we are seeing now is the family really wanting to let everybody know the state of her health. there's one thing, barbara bush doesn't want people to make a
5:02 pm
fuss about her. she likes her privacy. if she was here right now she would be saying, jamie, why are you talking about this on tv? but they wanted to let everybody know. and really, to say thank you to everyone for all -- all of their prayers and their supports, ana. >> again, that was cnn's special correspondent jamie gangel. we have a statement of the white house. spokeswoman saying the prayers of the president and firstly day prayers are with the bush family during this time. and monitoring developments and think about that family and send our prayers and the very best. president trump spent time fuming over the fbi director he fired last year. referring to twitter and james comey is slippery. he writes that comey always ends badly and out of whack. and he says that the former head of the nation's top law
5:03 pm
enforcement agency is -- in the president's words -- not smart. let's go to white house correspondent bo rice sanchez. the president did not let go up on james comey. comey will also start a series of media appearances beginning tonight. is it safe to say we can expect the president to have more to add? >> reporter: it is a high likelihood,ana, considering that james comey has a full week if not more of media appearances promoting his book "a higher loyalty" and we should note is not very flattering when it comes to describing president trump. one point, comey say that is the president is not tethered to the truth. the president obviously taking exception to that and other remarks by james comey. he let out a barrage of attacks through his preferred method on twitter early this morning one point calling comey a slime ball and suggesting that the former
5:04 pm
director of the fbi to be imprisoned for a number of moments that the president apparently has taken exception to. press secretary sarah sanders asked about that specific suggestion out president on one of the sunday morning talk shows. she did not go as far as to say that comey should be arrested and charged with crimes but she did say that the department of justice should look into any wrongdoing. again, we still have a couple of days of explosive commentary coming from james comey. surface to say that president trump has heard some of comey's criticism and will probably be ready to respond to more once it comes out, ana. >> boris, someone else is taking offense to his book, loretta lynch. comey said that lynch said not to call it an investigation of hillary clinton but something else. how is loretta lynch now responding to this? >> reporter: that's right. comey has been public about his
5:05 pm
discomfort over lynch's handling of the clinton e-mail investigation and specifically that she asked him to call it a matter rather than an investigation. lynch tonight put out a statement apparently expecting to hear more about this in that comey interview defending herself saying she stuck by department of justice policy. here's a portion of that statement now. she writes, quite, everyone who works for the department of justice has an obligation to protect the confidentiality and integrity of the work of the department. that is why at the critical early stages of this case i followed the department's long-standing policy of neither confirming nor denying the fact of an ongoing investigation. neither misleads nor misinforms but protects investigations and guarantees equal treatment of those under scrutiny well-known or unknown. any suggestion to invoke the policy for another reason is simply false. of course, lynch has come under
5:06 pm
criticism for the meeting on a plane with bill clinton at the height of the 2016 campaign. both parties deny it had anything to do with the hillary clinton e-mail investigation. but lynch ultimately had to recuse herself from that investigation over that meeting and that's what brought james comey into the middle of that picture and we're seeing the way that all of it unfolded play out now as we await this interview that james comey is giving tonight. >> boris sanchez at the white house, thank you. now the full interview airs tonight and according to axios the president may not have heard the worst of what the former fbi director has to say and reporting that even stronger newsmaking interviews chunks yet to come and they'll quote shock the president and his team. let's discuss, joining us cnn contributor and author kate anderson-bower, bill kristol and
5:07 pm
james galiano and host of "reliable sources" brian seltser. do you have any insight that the worst is yet to come? >> one of the topics to be detailed is russia and the russia probe. i don't know exactly what comey said but i think that's what axios is hinting about. look for what comey has to say about russia and trump. we'll hear a lot more. you know, ana, this edit was going on at abc until this afternoon. abc's going to share the rest of that online and then after this interview a week's worth of interviews. usa today, abc, cbs, cnn. all over the place all week long and these revelations tonight are significant but then this is going to continue every single day all week long. we know the publisher printed almost a million copies in preparation for the release. >> and james comey sitting down with jake tapper here on cnn on the 19th.
5:08 pm
>> that's thursday and that's a live interview and i think it's so interesting about that is trump will presumably have reacted to the book. the book will be for sale by then and comey's on twitter saying i hope everybody reads the full book and afraid of being taken out of context saying on twitter today it's about the interactions of three presidents. two of them with lessons of ethics and life and another is counter point. >> he could be talking about the russia investigation. the russia investigation isn't over. do you take issue with that? >> i do. he has every right as a private citizen to write memoirs and sell books and to brian's point i think an initial run of 850,000. he's going to be a best-selling author. the issue i take with him, many former agents and those on board, current on boards take this issue, james comey is still
5:09 pm
a fbi employee. the department defines an employee who holds or has held a position of trust in the agency. he's discussing matters that are relevant and salient to an open or ongoing investigation or case. ie, the us case. ie, the inspector general's probe. ie, a number of different congressional probes still going on right now. not just a witness. not a part of the periphery. a central figure. this book is a bad look and leaking out the excerpts that have showed him making salacious comments, something that we look at the president and say he's beneath the dignity of the office, james comey elected to enter the pig wallow and doing the same worst. >> what's worst? >> this is nothing to do with that. the fbi director's talking about an ongoing probe he's a central witness to. he held the moral ground until leaking to "the new york times." and then folks like me that
5:10 pm
defended him last may you lost our respect. >> sometimes people leak to skraem from the top of the mountain with an emergency happening. i think comey's trying to scream tonight. >> he's a feckless leader. to the point of boris about the former attorney general lynch, he had an opportunity to go to her and say, madame ig, i have taken issue with you telling me not to call it an investigation. investigation from a house from the benghazi investigation. you're now telling me to call it something that aligns with the clinton campaign talking points. feckless. he also had a chance with nine interactions of the president on the phone and in person to say, mr. president, what are you telling me to do? not to look into michael flynn? are you telling me to ignore investigations? i'll go on record right now. he didn't submit a rez inspector general inflation. he testified. he wished he was stronger but he doesn't. >> bill kristol, clearly, this is bringing out a lot of passion, a lot of people
5:11 pm
disagree with comey and disagree with how the president is attacking comey now on twitter as, again, the president of the united states. a lot of people have something to say about how the rnc is rolling out the campaign attacking comey, as well. where do you stand? >> i think it's a sideshow. i'm closer to james than brian. i don't think comey needs to let us raise the alarm. bob mueller is doing an investigation and what matters. i assume director comey is not revealing anything he shouldn't reveal as someone who directed that investigation. i assume he's talking about things he personally experienced, sort of a participant and then probably being careful and assume he's following the correct guidelines that a former fbi director should follow. you know, he's entitled to write a book. maybe interesting, maybe not. i can't say i learned something start ling from it but it's a week of hoopla and arguing. someone like james that served in the fbi i can understand why
5:12 pm
he feels like he does. there's a serious investigation going on. people who know bob mueller's career expected the integrity and obviously i think getting closer to very sensitive matters and i think to really learning what happened both in 2016 and then in 2017 and maybe up to now in terms of a cover-up. the president hinting at pardons. that's the drama. i don't think comey is a big story. >> kate, and the interview airing tonight comey talks about trump's marriage. let's listen to a clip. >> he said, you know, if there's a 1% chance my wife thinks that's true, that's terrible. and i remember thinking, how could your wife think there's a 1% chance you're with prostitutes peeing on each other in moscow? >> that's a jab at the first lady, as well, right? talking about her marriage. >> it is. i mean, you know, he is the only president to have been married three times. they are two very different
5:13 pm
personalities. she is very focused on their son barron. if you look at her public, you know, tweets lately she has been talking about military families and inviting students to the white house. she is very restrained and interesting to see the president sort of railing against comey and the first lady in the stormy daniels drama and everything else has really been restranled and i think that's been admirable given what she is dealing with. >> i want to show you one way the rnc is reacting to all of this. take a look at this fake book jacket. it's called "higher loyalty." to me, myself and i and we don't have it to show you but they're coming out with a mock book. they have mock reviews. a former fbi agent. >> right. >> including you, james. what did you think about that? >> well, as people said to me
5:14 pm
like my own father, are they allowed to do that? i gave some quotes to "the national review." they took a snippet of that. i was describing the book tour and said it looked self serving and narcissistic. if i'm speaking about the book tour, i do believe that james comey's making a colossal mistake. i don't think it looks good on him and i think it is continuing to keep the fbi on the front page of "the new york times" above the fold where we don't need to be. in regards to the rnc, you know, raising campaign money off of that, that's up to them. obviously saying something in the public arena they can take what they want i guess. >> also a different ad, different group of republicans bought ad time on abc tonight in the special defending mueller and the fbi so we'll see a debate ongoing about this. >> we have fox new this is's been trying to attack comey leading up to the big release and a clip of the show earlier this morning. >> the other thing that
5:15 pm
surprises me, frankly, is how bitchy the book is. >> more like "mean girls" gossip than blockbusters. >> maybe not much new or damaging for president trump. >> shocking fact of all is how banal it is. >> bombshells, there are none. >> brian, what did you make of this? >> the book is the bombshell. i respect where you're coming from, james. i never recall a fired director of the fbi wrote a book. this is a shocking time. calling the president unethical. the presidency a forest fire. i understand why his supporters on fox want to say it's no big deal and say it's -- i think readers will -- at least a lot of people want to read it and find out comey's experience and keep in mind no other president's been through this. such an unusual situation to have this tell-all written 15
5:16 pm
months into trump's presidency. >> this has happened in the mid-'90s. a book in 2005 of "my fbi." >> after clinton was out of office. >> that's fair. that's fair. said the same thing and the same issues that this current or this former fbi -- >> this is an insider saying the presidency is a forest fire. >> that's what -- >> from the mountaintop. >> we have been here before. >> okay. >> i love it! >> we have this script. >> we have a great group on. i want to show you the book cover now. i mentioned it. what are you talking about? this is that mock book or the fake book, "a higher loyalty." bill kristol, are you okay with this campaign that the rnc is doing? >> no. i mean, it would be nice if the rnc fought for republicans to win in the congress and didn't just become the personal organ of trump but that's the politics and too many republicans view the job is being trump apoll gists instead of advancing republican principles and the
5:17 pm
party's interests. i'm part of republicans for the rule of law and we have an ad on the stephanopoulos interview tonight making the case, comey isn't that -- a serious rule of law issue, the mueller investigation and that is the deputy attorney general. and that is whether the justice department is going to have a legitimate investigation impeded or curtailed by the president, maybe by the use of the pardon power or firing people. that's real and serious. and i hope republicans rally to that to the rule of law and spend less time worrying about the former fbi director. >> everyone stay with me because i want to talk about another legal issue weighing on the president. that is the revelation that his personal attorney michael cohen is under criminal investigation and apparently has been for movants. sources say the president's team is now more worried about this investigation than they are robert mueller. i want do get your reaction to this on the other side. discover card.

5:23 pm
mcdougall and then learning about cohen and his investigation that's under way here in new york. and we know that part of that has to do with affairs, as well, hush money paid regarding those kinds of things. kate, the first lady is stuck kind of in the middle of this. how does all of this end up weighing on the first family and melania in particular? >> it is difficult for her and i'm told she does read everything that's -- she tries to read everything written about her husband, herself. she's very much informed. you know, i think a lot of people are note necessarily aware of how involved she is. so i think it's weighing on her a lot. they have a young son and all about protecting himself, a huge concern of hers. he is old enough to, you know, go online and see stories about what's going on in his family so it's difficult. she's also not a political person in the same way hillary clinton, you know, she --
5:24 pm
hillary clinton went to capitol hill and lobbied members not to impeach her husband. melania trump is much more private. she didn't want this life. and so i think there's a level of sympathy that people have for her. >> talk about the cohen investigation. president's personal attorney under fire, in hot water after the fbi raided his office, hotel room, his residence. and, james, we are learning that according to "the new york times" confidants of the president are saying that they believe that this cohen investigation that's separate from the mueller investigation could be a bigger threat. >> we have sat here many times over the course of the last year and talked about my cautious skepticism with the russia collusion probe. we are ancillary process crimes, yes crimes, but nothing that touched the president. 13 russians, nobody that was an american other than an unwitting person anything to do with that.
5:25 pm
this cohen deal, that is real deal. i know the southern district well. i worked investigations with southern district prosecutors. i've got great respect for the united states attorney i worked under. they do an amazing job. and when they're on the case, good luck. there's a reason why federal investigations that are taken to trial typically end up in the 90% to 95% conviction realm because they have the goods. for them to go and conduct a no-knock warrant on a lawyer's office approved at the highest levels and not using the methods of gathering that information and not issued a subpoena or spoke on the the attorney and asked him to turn it over suggests that this might be -- this might be the president should be concerned about. >> okay. >> now, though, the judge has to approve that warrant as james said and can't just be that even the deputy attorney general thinks this is interesting but
5:26 pm
reasonable cause to believe they have an urgency and need for surprise of such a warrant and cohen has sensitive materials that may be about russia, stuff that happened last year or last week. we don't know. i really think people are missing a little bit the forest for the trees and james' comment absolutely right on this. so rare it happens of an attorney, the attorney of the president of the united states, rosenstein knows what he is doing and mueller and southern district coordinating. people talk about it as if fdny does it, they don't get the information. of course they share the information. we don't know the relationship but i think this is -- i mean, there's real -- must be real evidence of real possible criminality and in the files that they went to get or recordings or whatever from cohen's office and residence and who's cohen's client? trump. i think this is a very serious
5:27 pm
moment. >> and now "the new york times" editorial calling on republicans to do more to protect robert mueller. our report of the cohen investigation as the final blow. here's a portion of the "the new york times" op-ed. the president is not a king but a citizen deserving of the presumption of innocence. we hope mr. trump recognizes this. if we doesn't, how republican lawmakers respond shapes the future not only of this presidency and of one of the great's political parties but the american expert itself. brian, what more do you know about this? >> "the times" trying to make a statement. this is not the newsroom. the editorial board writing this. takes up an entire page in the newspaper which is very unusual. they're really trying to send a message here. the title is "the president is not above the rule of law." and they're arguing as we have seen other liberals also argue that there should be
5:28 pm
preparations now for the possibility of mueller or rosenstein being fired. we know that liberal groups organized protests for such action to be taken and "the times" saying republican lawmakers also need to be prepared. they say this would be sitting on the edge of an abyss if this action is taken and trump to decide to distract from the comey book firing someone or any other reason and talking about the possibility of a mueller firing for a long time and i think it's important not come across as crying wolf, opinion writer for "the new york times" or television anchor. but all of the reporting we have seen is that the president is angrier than ever. gloria borger said no one's seen him this way before. you can't imagine the level of anger. feeling cornered like never before or since "the access hollywood" tape feels out and feels like a quite tense moment. >> bill kristol, the last word. do you have faith that the
5:29 pm
republican party will hold this president accountable if he moves to fire robert mueller or rod rosenstein? >> i hope so. there's legislation attracting more republican support and i think helpful to move with that even if the president's not going to sign it and can't get through the house to show senior serious republicans think it's important and the pardon power and i think the president very much has in mind. the president's going to fight. this is where i'm a little worried this people are too confident. the legal process is immediating moving ahead. sometimes cover-ups work and i think it's important that the republican party step up and say we can't allow it to work. >> thank you so much. brian, james, bill, kate, i really appreciate it. the president of france taking credit for changing president trump's mind about syria. you're live in the cnn newsroom. , the best network for streaming.

5:41 pm
russia reaction to this weekend's missile strikes in syria. >> reporter: vladimir putin has recently communicated with rihani of iran because they are the two biggest backers of the damascus regime and jointly agreed that the u.s.-led air strikes were in their view a violation of the international charter that formed the united nations, illegal under international law and above all undermine in their view efforts that they are making and leading alongside turkey to try to bring some kind of peaceful resolution to the syrian civil war. and now the critics of those regimes particularly of damascus would say that's a bit rich given the high level of military support that iran and russia give to the damascus regime resulted in huge numbers of civilian deaths as a result of combat operations on the ground

and air strikes that continue constantly from russian and syrian aircraft. so in that context, the russians remain extremely defiant. i think there is one area where they could suffer serious setback in a way they're not affected by criticism over the whole chemical weapons controversy and that is in terms of economic sanctions. nikki haley, the american ambassador to the united nations, has sugg justed that this week they may see a greater level of economic sanctions imposed on those closest to vladimir putin or perhaps more widely when a round of sanctions were imposed on a little over a dozen oligarchs as they're own, very, very rich and powerful people close to vladimir putin just over two weeks ago. they did have an immediate affect on the russian economy. the ruble by 4% and a tumbling

>> my brother not be idealized. be. remembered simply as a good and decent man, who saw wrong and tried to right it. saw suffering and tried to heal it. saw war and tried to stop it. as he said many times, some men see things as they are and say why. i dream things that never were and say why not. >> we are moments away now from the final episode of our six-part series "american dynasties: the kennedys. so bobby kennedy's death was another tragic loss for both the kennedy family and the country. when was bobby poised to have the biggest impact when he was killed? where was his biggest opportunity lost in his death?
5:57 pm
>> bobby had an opportunity to do two things. one, to heal the country at home. and two, to heal our foreign policy abroad. bobby kennedy after much indecision decided to come out firmly against the war in vietnam. bobby kennedy remembered that his brother john f. ken difs part of the reason the united states was in that war in the first place ask he advised his brother to defend. it wasn't easy to decide this adventure, this was no longer in america's hinterest. and at home bobby kennedy had also changed in 1963 he urged his brother to view civil rights as a moral imperative of the presidency. there was still much work to be done in civil rights. martin luther king dies in the spring of 1968. bobby kennedy is there trying to caution people trying to counsel african-americans not to give up

horrific moral flaw in the incident. there are mysteries about it that will never be resolved, but one of the things we know is he did not do the right thing. he did not inform the police. and we don't know the extent to which he could have saved her, but he certainly didn't. so from 1969 on, he's carrying this burden. what's remarkable is despite this burden, many americans still saw him as the third president, as a third kennedy to run for president. so there was a lot of pressure on him to run for office. in 1979 he tried to beat out an incumbent in jimmy carter and he proved he couldn't do it. but even he tried for the presidency. >> thank you so much. we'll have to watch the show for the rest of the story. watch "american dynasties". it begins in a few moments only on cnn.
