allegedly show stone pushing corsi to try to obtain documents from wikileaks that could be helpful to the trump campaign. this was in the summer of 2016. the documents included draft court filing that provides insight into what mueller may know about stone's efforts to obtain information from wikileaks in 2016. corsi said that summer wasn't the only time that stone told him to go wikileaks and try to get the goods. he claims he spoke to stone on october 7th in the hours before the now-infamous "access hollywood" tape became public. stone wanted him to try to mitigate the fallout with some help from wikileaks. >> we get to october 7 which was a very, very busy day from here in new york. and roger calls me three times. we had three -- three times we have a discussion. now my recollection is that roger is saying this is going to be dropped and assange better get going.
1:03 am
why don't you get to assange and tell him to start? i didn't have any contact with assange. but roger going back to july and august may have, you know, may have led him on. >> reporter: stone denies corsi's version of events telling cnn "it is pure, unadulterated b.s." corsi still insists he never had contact with assange, and stone still says he never had any advanced knowledge of wikileaks document dumbs. so far neither -- document dumps. so far neither is facing charges. corsi said he won't sign on to a special plea agreement. they want him to plead guilty to perjury but he said he never knowingly lied to investigators. as for what's next, corsi knows that the special counsel's office is none too happy that he's gone on this publicity tour. >> thanks. paul manafort denies ever meeting wikileaks' founder julian assange. contrary to a report that says the two met several times secretly inside the equadoran
1:04 am
embassy in london. one meeting in twea2016 around time manafort took the helm of the trump campaign. manafort writes, "this story is totally false and deliberately like liable us on. i have never been contacted by anyone connected to wikileaks either directly or indirectly. i have never reached out it assange or wikileaks on anything matter. we are considering all legal options against "the guardian" who proceeded with the story even after being notified by my reps that it was false." democrats are warning president trump that even dangling a pardon for paul manafort could lead to a charge of obstruction of justice. white house press secretary sarah sanders says she's confident the president was involved in no wrongdoing and was not part of any campaign collusion. she was asked whether a pardon for manafort is on the table. >> the president said this

1:06 am
change study produced by more than 300 scientists and experts is not based in fact. >> it's not data driven. we'd like to see something that is more data driven, that's based on modeling which is treatmently hard to do -- extremely hard to do when talking about the climate. our focus is making sure we have the safest, cleanest air and water. the president's going to do salt lake exactly that. >> -- do exactly that. >> when asked about the wildfires in california, the president claimed the problems could be solved by raking the floors of the forest. the president blaming drops in the stock market and plant closings at general motors on the federal reserve. mr. trump says he is not even a little bit happy with jerome powell. he tells the "washington post," quote, so i'm doing deals and i'm not being accommodated by the fed. i'm not happy with the fed. they're making a mistake because i have a gut, and my gut tells me more sometimes than anybody else's brain can ever tell me.
1:07 am

and long-term success. republican cindy hyde-smith will keep her senate seat, holding off a democratic challenge in mississippi. cnn projects hyde-smith will defeat democrat mike espy in the senate runoff election. the race drew national attention, centered largely on hyde-smith's comments evoking the state's dark history of racism and slavery. she acknowledged it was a difficult campaign. >> you can get brutalized, beat up. that's part of this business. we can go forward, and we're not looking back. >> hyde-smith will now finish out the final two years of thad cochran's term. he retired earlier this year. she'll have to run again in 2020 for a full six-year senate term. mississippi's race is the latest senate contest to be decided in the midterm. come january the senate balance of power will look like this -- 53 republicans, 47 democrats.
1:09 am
giving the gop a net gain of two seats in the senate. meantime, the democratic majority in the next house continues to grow. the party picked up another seat with force, beating republican yvette herrell, in the second komgal district. that makes a net gain of 35 seats for the democrats. can they reach 40? just one house race left to call in california's district. d.j. cox has pulled ahead of republican congressman david valadao by over 400 votes in the latest tally. cnn and news organizations called the race for valadao on election night. cnn withdrew the call. so about the blue wave, democrats made big gains in the 2018 midterms picking up 39
1:10 am
seats in the house and governors races. democrats had a net gain of seven, republicans lost six. state legislators, democrats gained at least 332 seats. later today, democrats meet behind closed doors to decide whether nancy pelosi will be the next house speaker. there is tension and opposition within the democratic caucus, but the minority leader is widely expected to win the vote. a public vote on the house floor on january 3rd remains filled with uncertainty and intrigue. pelosi winning a letter to fellow democrats asking for their support writing, quote, history is in a hurry, and we need accelerate the pace of change in congress. the public has entrusted us to save our democracy. tensions continue to climb between russia and ukraine as marshal law kicks in this morning. we're live in kiev next. and why a key trump figure is about to receive mexico's

senate aides telling cnn the white house does not want gina haspel testifying on the murder of "washington post" journalively jamal khashoggi. -- journalist jamal khashoggi. secretary of state mike pompeo and jim mattis will be at the closed door briefing. >> haskell may be able to shed light on the contents of that audio recording of jamal khashoggi's killing at the saudi consulate in istanbul, but is the west wing keeping haspel under wraps for fear that she might share details that don't align the murder? the "wall street journal" published a remarkable op-ed by the secretary of state. in it, pompeo makes the case for a hard-eyed, practical approach to saudi arabia. he says degrading ties between the kingdom and u.s. would harm
1:16 am
national security and, quote, do nothing to punish riyadh in a better direction at home. president trump tells the "washington post" he's waiting for a full report on russia's most recent confrontation with ukrai ukraine. he says depending on what it says, he may skip his meeting with vladimir putin at the g20 summit this week. just a few hours ago, marshal law went into effect in ten ukrainian border provinces. tension is climbing in the region after russia seized three ukraine navy ships in the strait on sunday. this morning, more than a dozen ukrainian sailors are being held by russia. senior correspondent nick paton walsh joining us live from ukraine. good morning. where we headed here? >> reporter: remarkable that two days in donald trump is still waiting for a full report or was at least last night into what happened. his criticism muted, i think it's fair to say. he said he's not happy, he doesn't like aggression, he said he might skip the meeting. but cast your mind back to the obama administration.
1:17 am
the idea of meeting vladimir putin one on one in a chummy discussion after the invasion of crimea back in 2014 would have been unheard of. and that i think has got many in ukraine rattled. this is a morning where three hours ago marshal law came into effect in ten regions. we don't really have any palpable signs of what that means so far. bear in mind this is a country that's been at war for four years. the conflict has raged on unseen, sadly, people dying every week, and people are looking to see what this new legal infrastructure that the ukrainian president put into play, actually changes, does it mean as he suggested last night that russian citizens may find it hard or impossible to get in to ukraine? we don't know. but the global outrage at russian moves in the strait on sunday against those ukrainian vessels which has led now to a dozen sailors being sentenced to two years in russian jails and potentially another dozen getting a similar fate today or tomorrow, has certainly escalated this long rumbling
1:18 am
conflict, and the broaderific is is there going to be adequately international condemnation that makes moscow feel that they have to check their ambitions, or do they see donald trump's slight equivocati equivocation, lack of clarity about his response, as emboldening, as perhaps a green light or indication they can get away with more? dave? >> all right. nick paton walsh live in ukraine this morning. thank you. a government watchdog says the department of health and human services is not conducting required fbi background checks on hundreds of staff members at a migrant children's facility in texas. according to the hhs inspector general, instead of fbi fingerprint checks, the department is relying on less comprehensive background checks done by private contractors. the report says there are not enough staff clinicians at the facility to provide adequate message health care for the unaccompanied children being kept there. on friday, mexico's president will bestow his country's highest honor for

with russia and ukraine inching closer to all-out war, president trump tells the "washington post" he may skip his scheduled meeting with president putin at the summit this week depending on what u.s. intelligence tells him about the situation. a few hours ago, marshal law went into place in provinces. this after three ukraine navy ships were seized in the strait on sunday. nick paton walsh joins us now live from ukraine. he's been monitoring this. and nick, i think it bears repeating, this is -- this is the most overt, open conflict we've seen between the russians and the ukrainians, military-to-military conflict. it's dangerous. >> reporter: well, absolutely. bear in mind, this is not a war that suddenly stopped in the last four years. it's been going on at a much lower level. people dying, though on, a
1:48 am
weekly basis. it's that flare-up in the kurdish straight, the russian military not disguising itself or using proxy separatists, but going for the ukrainian military directly that's obviously brought this when we come babac spotlight. the latest is despite president trump's muted sometimes qualified criticism of russian aggression, he still has not decided to cancel the meeting with vladimir putin which had been unthinkable, frankly, for his predecessor to have done after the invasion of crimea in 2014. the kremlin are still preparing for it, as well. full speed ahead on that potentially too chummy moo egg in argentina. and here in -- chummy meeting in argentina. and here in ukraine, the agreement is over three hours old in russia and near russia separatist regions. there are few visible signs. we know on paper it's supposed to increase defenses in the air, cyber, and military, as well. and possibly according to the president make it harder for
1:49 am
russian citizens to enter ukraine. palpably it's tricky to see what's happening here. and despite calls for deescalation, the rhetoric continues to rise, and moscow's probably getting signals from the white house that maybe it can get away with more. christine? >> all right. nick paton walsh in kiev, thank you. to the latest on our southern border. we're learning the main shelter housing central american migrants in tijuana is at least three times above capacity, housing almost 6,000 people. cnn crews visiting the makeshift shelter finding squalid conditions. cnn's leyla santiago in tijuana with the latest. >> reporter: dave and christine, this makeshift shelter, these tents, state officials here say already three times, at least three times over capacity. more than 5,000 central american migrants are now calling this the home of the caravan. and resources are now becoming a
1:50 am
concern. not only for the mayor of tijuana and state officials but for the migrants themselves. they tell me that food has become an issue, many are saying that there is not enough of it, and the food that is available will take hours and hours in line to get. and then let me walk you through here. this is -- these are the bathrooms. i want to point out what you may be able to hear which is a helicopter flying over. that is sort of one of the things they see a lot of here. this has become part of the environment here. constantly hearing the helicopters that are flying over. these are u.s. helicopters. let me get back to what i was showing you earlier. this is a problem. the cleanliness. these are the bathrooms they have, and you can see water spilling out from the showers that are available, as well as
1:51 am
