2:00 am
rudy giuliani claiming the special counsel told the white house legal team he cannot indict the president. one year into the mueller investigation, what does that mean for the probe and the president? and testimony leading the intriguing meeting with the trump tower lawyer meet and how it ties into the russia investigation. and breaking overnight. video from the pentagon of the deadly ambush that killed four american soldiers in niger. it provides new insight to what went wrong. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christine romans. >> i'm dave briggs. thursday, may 17th. 5:090 a.m. in the east. today, robert mueller was appointed special counsel one year ago today. important developments in this marking the milestone.
2:01 am
rudy giuliani was told by the mueller team they cannot indict the president. all they get to do is write a repo report. they cannot indict. they acknowledge that to us. the point rudy giuliani reiterated on fox last night. >> we will see what legal remedies are available to us. including if they subpoena us, challenge the subpoena. i don't think they agree to the process question. the same reason they cannot indict him, they cannot issue a subpoena to him. clinton opposed a subpoena and voluntarily complied. >> if mueller's team said if the president cannot be indicted, he is not necessarily in the clear. even though longstanding justice departmentlines say a sitting president cannot be indicted. that has never been tested in court. not clear if mueller's team is
2:02 am
prepared tie on that challenge. if it has criminal evidence against president trump is unclear. a few questions answered. plenty of new ones raised after the release of thousands of pages of interviews with participants in the 2016 meeting in june in trump tower with campaign officials and russian lawyer. now five of the eight people in the meeting including donald trump jr. and what they thought the meeting would be about and how they reacted when they learned and what happened when the meeting went public. >> what did the president know about the meeting and when? sara murray with a closer look at the senate intel documents. >> reporter: good morning, dave and christine. the dirt on hillary clinton turned to frustration for top members of the trump campaign when the information came up short. releasing 2,000 pages of interviews of the 2016 trump tower meeting with the russian lawyer and trump junior and jared kushner and campaign chairman paul manafort. the documents make one point clear. the meeting did not go the way they expected. when the russian lawyer talked about adoptions rather than dirt on clinton, kushner appeared agitated.
2:03 am
after the meeting, trump junior said the man would arranged it apologized for quote wasting our time. the president's son insisted he did not tell his father about the meeting before or offer of incriminating information on clinton because i would not bring him anything unsubstantiated. he never told his father about the meeting, on june 6th, trump junior made an 11-minute phone call to a blocked number. corey lewandowski testified the president's residence has a blocked number. when the meeting first came about a year later, the trump team was flailing for a response. they crafted a misleading one when the president was returning from germany. saying it was focused on adoptions. there was no reason of clinton dirt. as a special counsel probes the
2:04 am
meeting it is unclear how involved the president was in crafting it. his father may have commented through hope hicks. the former communications director. he said he did not request his father's assistance saying hicks quote asked if i wanted to speak to him and i chose not to. i did not want to bring him into something he had nothing do with. >> thank you, sara. the senate intel committee breaking with house colleagues by backing with the assessment that russia meddled in the 2016 election. chairman richard burr said committee has spent 14 months reviewing the sources and we see no reason to dispute the conclusions. the house intel committee disagrees with the intelligence community that vladimir putin was trying to help trump. republican congress member mike conway ran the russia investigation. he supports the conclusion and
2:05 am
downplayed the differences. and president trump acknowledging for the first time he repaid his lawyer michael cohen more than $100,000 for expenses during the 2016 election. in a new financial disclosure, mr. trump does not specify the repayment and the lawyers have confirmed cohen was reimbursed for the $130,000 payoff to stormy daniels. the president's representatives say they listed the payment in an issue of transparency. the office of government ethics seeing it differently. you may find the disclosure relevant. any inquiry you may be pursuing. he revealed the repayment on fox news a few weeks ago to get ahead of the financial disclosure. "the washington post" reporting that michael cohen solicited at least $1 million from the country of qatar in
2:06 am
2016 in exchange for advice about the incoming administration. the offer was delivered. the qatari official was approached by michael cohen. this coming after the meeting with the qatari foreign amerimir and michael flynn. the president is not commenting and neither is michael cohen. it is not clear if we will hear from the president over the white house news conference with the secretary-general. the president of the european council with harsh words. he said the eu should be grateful to president trump because thanks to him we got rid of the illusions. he made us realize, if you need a helping hand, you can find it
2:07 am
on the end of your arm. it goes on. this was prepared remarks to reporters. there has not been a daily white house briefing since monday. there is one scheduled this afternoon. former secretary of state rex tillerson taking a not so subtle jab at his former boss telling graduates at the cadet military institute in virginia. respect for truth is paramount to democracy. >> if our leaders seek to conceal the truth or we become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in the facts, then we are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom. when we go wobbly on the truth, we go wobbly on america.
2:08 am
some hear laurel, some hear yanny. he said america's future must be fact based. the u.s. and china want round two of trade talks. the toughest china critic won't have a leading role. white house says trade adviser peter navarro will not be a principle player during negotiations. treasury secretary steve mnuchin will lead the talks. navarro has an issue over trade with the president. navarro is the protectionist voice. a real china hawk. mnuchin is free trade. a clash hit new level tws two ws ago. sources tell cnn navarro fought with mnuchin shouting over the direction of trade talks. the argument took place out of view of chinese officials. as china's top economic officials meet with trump's team, they will miss another deadline for a deal.
2:09 am
nafta's deal is supposed to be today. that gives congress time to vote this year, but negotiations are far from over. >> will we get clarity from the president? he says nothing has happened with zte on twitter. his republican senators marco rubio has been critical. >> the president said we will do something to help zte. then he says we have not caved on zte. it is not clear. okay. the counter-puncher in chief showing remarkable restraint when it comes to north korea. what president trump says about threats to cancel talks. we're live in seoul next. i've been making blades here at gillette for 20 years. i bet i'm the first blade maker you've ever met. there's a lot of innovation that goes into making our thinnest longest lasting blades on the market. precision machinery and high-quality materials from around the world. nobody else even comes close. it's about delivering a more comfortable shave every time.

if you're not serious about doing a deal with the president, if you are not willing to give up your nukes for a better life for north korea, don't meet with the president.
2:14 am
the worse thing you can do is sit down with president trump and try to play him. if you do that, we will have a war and you will lose it. >> stark warning from senator lindsey graham. after the threat of pulling out of the singapore summit. when asked about the status with the meeting with kim jong-un. >> we haven't seen anything. we haven't heard anything. we will see what happens. whatever it is. >> let's go live to seoul and ivan watson. what is south korea's reaction to all this rhetoric? >> reporter: they have been trying to play this down, dave. they called north korea's decision to pull out of the high level talks on wednesday amid complaints and protests about u.s. and south korea joint military exercises. the south koreans call that growing pains. they had a national security council meeting. there have been talks with u.s.
2:15 am
counterparts. it is a wait-and-see attitude. that is what it sounds like from washington as well at this stage. all we can conclude is the u.s. and south korea are pretty heavily invested in the peace process and they don't want to scrap it just yet. i think that's what we're seeing with considerable restraint coming from president trump himself. he and his administration and national security adviser were directly insulted by the north koreans in the last 36 hours. they called john bolton repugnant. they said that his comparison of a possible denuclearization process to north korea is similar to the disarmament more than a decade ago in libya. they called this sinister. there was a lot of criticism of the trump administration. it speaks volumes that president
2:16 am
trump hasn't responded with his twitter account in-kind. there is not an escalation of tension, but a wait-and-see. wait to see if the peace process will go forward. >> shaking it off to brian and saying north korea called me human scum and blood sucker all the way back in 2003. ivan watson live in seoul. breaking news. for the first time we are seeing video from the deadly ambush that killed four american soldiers in niger last fall. we must warn you. that may be difficult to watch. the 23-minute video seen by congress was given to cnn by the pentagon. it contains drone footage of the body of sergeant ladavid johnson retrieved from under the thorn tree. this shows troops who escaped the isis ambush and escaped into a swamp.
2:17 am
they were going after a nearby isis commander. although the stated mission was to survey the area. a summary of the classified military report concluded the team was not authorized or equipped for such risky capture and kill missions. the racist tirade captured on video in new york. it starts with a complaint of workers at the lunch counter speaking spanish. watch. >> your staff is speaking spanish to customers. every person i listen to. he spoke it. she spoke it. this is america. they are undocumenteundocumente. my next call is to i.c.e. to have them taken from the country. if they have to come here and live off my money, i pay their welfare. you are running a place in midtown manhattan? you should be speaking english.
2:18 am
>> he finishes the rant by threatening to call i.c.e. and a crack of the woman shooting the video. >> it took the internet five seconds to identify the guy. he is a midtown attorney. there are more videos of the same man ranting in a similar fashion. cnn has reached out to him and we left a message at his law office. we have not heard back. i.c.e. says its tip line should not be used as an instrument to intimidate or harass. "the daily news" has a message for him. if you don't speak spanish. "screw you, idiot." that's the translation. if you are offended by speaking spanish? don't move to new york. every language on the earth you hear here. and we have the western conference finals game two.

2:30 am
the president's lawyer, rudy giuliani says the special counsel's own team admits it can't indict the president. what does that mean for the president? and testimony leading the intriguing meeting with the trump tower lawyer meet and how it ties into the russia investigation. and breaking overnight.
2:31 am
video from the pentagon of the deadly ambush that killed four american soldiers in niger. it provides new insight to what went wrong. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm dave briggs. >> i'm christine romans. one year ago today, robert mueller was appointed special counsel in the russia investigation. there are important developments on the milestone. rudy giuliani says they cannot indict the president. rudy giuliani said all they can do is write a report. they can't indict. they acknowledge that to us after battling with us. it is a point giuliani reiterated on fox. >> we will see what legal remedies are available to us. including if they subpoena us, challenge the subpoena. i don't think they agree to the process question. the same reason they cannot indict him, they cannot issue a subpoena to him. clinton opposed a subpoena and voluntarily complied.
2:32 am
>> the president not necessarily in the clear. longstanding justice department guidelines say the sitting president cannot be indicted, but that has not been tested in court. not clear if mueller's team is prepared tie on that challenge. if it has criminal evidence against president trump is unclear. let's bring in michael moore to discuss this. no cakes to celebrate the one-year anniversary. there will be tweets like witch hunt and no collusion. is there any evidence at this point and is this how investigations work? do they reveal that evidence at the end? >> this investigation, if you think about the other special counsel cases have been short. we have spent four years in some
2:33 am
cases. we spent how many years with the clinton case? >> four years? >> yes. and it started in a narrow fashion in arkansas and we ended up talking about a blue dress in washington. the feigned indignation on the hill. i don't think this is going to starr -- sorry, robert mueller. it is comical. we are complaining at this point. a year in. we have indictments and russians come out. we now have the president change his story on a number of things. the web is thicker for the administration. >> to the president's point. is there any evidence of collusion, michael? >> there's clearly evidence. every time we turn around, there is another russian involved or russian contact. we know there is russian money flowing in.
2:34 am
this case is about following the money. that is where we are right now. bob mueller will not come out in the midst of the investigation and said i suddenly found and disclose to the world my evidence of collusion. i think you are seeing as he is putting the pieces together and from the witnesses that have been named and the leaks we have from the administration on various things. there is a case moving forward. it is not uncommon to have something go on for a period of time. nor is it uncommon for a special counsel to hold these things close to vest. >> we heard from the senate judiciary committee about the douk amou documents. the june 2016 trump tower meeting. it is unflattering, you could say, is the least about it. trying to get dirt on hillary clinton and disappointed there wasn't dirt on hillary clinton. raw disappointment.
2:35 am
the idea that trump junior, the president's son, he took this meeting and how he sort of scramble after it. what do you see? do you see an attempt to collude with the russians? they did not get a chance to collude. they wanted to, but couldn't? >> i think it is clear they were hungry for dirt on the clinton campaign and on hillary clinton. what you see maybe importantly out of the documents and testimony we received yesterday is there has been a cover-up to claim the meeting. if this was a clean meeting, you would not have all of these stories. you have the questions of who did don junior talk to and allegations he did not talk to his dad. that defies credibility. he talks to hope hicks while he is on air force one. suddenly he writes a letter
2:36 am
about his dad. how is he coming up with an excuse for something he was never told about? that just defies all common sense. i think that's probably the most damning thing to come out when we talk about the meeting. >> and clarity on what michael was talking about. a phone call made to donald trump before and after to a blocked number. we know from testimony that mr. trump, candidate trump at that point, personal residence was a blocked number. he said he doesn't know who that call was to -- go ahead. >> you are right. i don't know a blocked number in and of itself -- my guess is bob mueller knows who that number belongs. it is just now coming out in senate testimony. you have a president who thinks he can run a country without a chief of staff and he can micro manage. do you believe that somebody
2:37 am
called don junior that we have dirt on hillary clinton and that wasn't shared with the president? that defies logic. >> michael, can the president be indicted? should he feel good about what rudy giuliani said? >> there is longstanding position or memos in the department that talk about a president cannot be indicted. that has not been fetested in court. rudy giuliani is playing this out in the media. we can have all kind of court battles as the days go forward. what he is trying to do is manage public expectation. he has not intention of trump being questioned by donald trump. we don't know that for sure. -- trump being questioned by the special counsel. we don't know that for sure. they will say they don't get to do it because they are investigating a crime. presidents get impeached over
2:38 am
crimes and misdemeanors. the grand jury can meet to look at crimes and the president can be called forward. >> michael moore, thank you. let's be clear. mueller has been at this for a year. what we're talking about today he has known about for months. he is way ahead of us. thank you, michael. president trump acknowledging for the first time he repaid his lawyer michael cohen more than $100,000 for expenses incurred during the 2016 election. a financial disclosure doesn't state what the money was for, but he has paid $130,000 payoff to stormy daniels. the office of government ethics saying it differently. firing off a letter to rod rosenstein.
2:39 am
rudy giuliani said he revealed that on fox news a few weeks ago to get ahead of the financial disclosure. "washington post" reports that michael cohen solicited nearly $1 million from the government of qatar. the official approached by cohen and others with knowledge of the incident is coming after a december, 2016 meeting between the qatari foreign minister and michael flynn. the qatari government not commenting. former secretary of state rex tillerson taking a not so subtle jab at his former boss. telling the graduating cadets at the virginia institute says truth is paramount to democracy.
2:40 am
tillerson did not mention the president by name, but you decide. respect for truth is paramount to democracy. >> if our leaders seek to conceal the truth or we become accepting of alternative realities that are no longer grounded in facts, then we as american citizens are on a pathway to relinquishing our freedom. when we as people, a free people, go wobbly on the truth, even on what may seem the most trivial of matters, we go wobbly on america. >> the former secretary said the pursuit of america's future must be fact base and not wishful thinking. a major break from house colleagues, the intelligence community is correct in the assessment that russia favored president trump in the 2016 election. chairman richard burr said it was extensive and sophisticated and ordered by vladimir putin to help trump. the house committee did not find the russians favored trump and showed the tradecraft failed.
2:41 am
there was meddling, but not in favor the trump. mike con away ran the house investigation. he downplayed the differences with the senate calling them narrow. a school resource officer being called a hero for stopping a former student from opening fire at a graduation rehearsal. that's next. with a double palm grab. who has the upper hand now? start winning today. book now at lq.com. you might be missing something.y healthy. your eyes. that's why there's ocuvite. ocuvite helps replenish nutrients your eyes can lose as you age. it has lutein, zeaxanthin and omega-3. ocuvite. be good to your eyes.
