man power to solve the case. so she heestimates >> we're basing on facial dimensions called face space. >> she's giving law enforce ament powerful crime feino typing. mueller dropping a major bomb on trump. >> we now know a lot more about where mueller is heading and who must be next. >> from's own appointees saying you, mr. president are directly implicated in federal felonies. >> as we know the department of justice has opined that you cannot indict a sitting president.
>> and i would have to say to him i understand what you want to do but you can't do it that way. it violates the law. ♪ good saturday morning to you. >> in for cristie paul this morning. federal prosecutors are swreer eoing on what could be a worst-case scenario. >> for the first time a team of investigators say that then-candidate trump explicitly directed his personal lawyer to break federal election law. here's the key phrase from that file and it's important we let them res naze. cohen's commission of two finance crimes on the eeb of the 2016 election for the president of the united states struck a
blow to transparnszy. while many americans desire a particular outcome knocked on doors, or found any number of legal ways to make chair this as heard, ehooorchestrated a secret and illegal payment to silence two women that otherwise would have made public their extramarital affairs and in the process cohen hid alleged facts he believed wew would have had a substantial effect on the election. >> special prosecutor robert mueller's team says paul manafort lied about five major issues after agreeing to cooperate. he was in contact as recently as this year. mann forts was indicted in 2017. we begin with the latest deals
on the case against michael cohen. >> what these could mean for cohen when he's sentenced next week. >> a dramatic day for cohen. his sentencing next week. one from special counsel mueller and another filing from the southern district of new york laying out some of the details of the wrong doing. laying out how michael cohen has extens extensively cooperated, including in seven interviews and provided deiltads about his own contacts with ruzs. "the defendant has taken. significant steps to mitigate his criminal conduct. he admitted his conduct in open court and has gone to lengths to assist the special counsel's
investigation and the coneration should be taken into considseration when the kbrients smentsing happens next week. that wacktually was very bad flus meekal foam..en. and only a mot leniency when it comes to his prison sentences. this lades out how michael cohen evaded taxes and altso how he illegally tried to effect the outcome of the kwent 16 campaign and that's referring to the haugs payments made who said that they had affairs donald trump. that says after cheating the irs for years, lying to banks and
congress and cohen's decision to plead gelty does not make hem a hero. so this is a blow for michael cohen and his lawyers that are arguing michael cohen should get no jail time because of the extent of his cooperation with investigators and because he's committed to helping the government get to the truth. they clearly do not agree with that assessment. >> and for his parkts president trump appears to be brushing off the implications of the mueller team's mem eo. >> and let's bringing boris san ches. zblshs the president has tweeted several times about the latest implications for his administration. >> the president tweeted a few moments ago. quote after two years and millions of pages of documents and a kais of over $30 million
no collusion. we should clarify what was filed yesterday was a sentencing dox kbrmt stens manafort and cohen. thoseige no way are the frinl reort we're expecting him to put out. that is thought the final verdict whether if anyone cucluded with with russians. i did want to pountd out that sharau daegz sanders in manafort, she seng ezs that's because of toys cohen engthes. the continuing danformation. and she goes on to suggest that
michael cone is 93 here eo. freefbiously the president get toed hits the totally clears him and leads to furkter questions. and to feend oind out exactly w knew and when he knew it. we'll see if the president continues tweeting later today. >> thanks so noem join engme is senior pletical coun spondent. welcome back to both of you. i want to start with the banner, the headline, that these filings say that the president directed his pursesinal attorney taprotect his campaign. >> that's right. that's what the headline is.
frr we have to be careful about two things. this is the stams of cohen and accepted by the prosecutor's office. in connection with cohen's galty plea. it's quite a different matter to prove that in law frrps and they were paid to influence the oum pip of of the election had. by saying that if he did this, he teed it to protect hes family and his wife. so you've got this dual mote frfb doing so. as a case against the president, it's not so simple. but that court has accepted it as true, that's significant.
>> and thaey'd have to have something more than his word as he's lied so many times now. head of the international media. the head of the organization that's bought these stories from the krshs cfo of the trump organization. it's this question of what was the president's intention, which would be complicated to a prosecutor. we need to say only that the president is said to have violated the law by his own justice department in new york. >> just fact checking the response from sarah sanders. when see says they tell us nothing off value that wasn't already known.
>> i mean i think that's not right, obviously. it kind of leads us closer to finding oout the truth and i think it's very clear that in any other case if any other person was involved in instructing someone to pay off women on the eve of the election, this would pee a bad thing for anyone in elected office. it shows that the walls are closing in on not only there is this cohen matter and there's everything else. this is just a sampling of what mueller knows. more is going to come out in the coming days and weeks. >> david -- in addition to be thing chief of staff and he was
the chair of the democratic caucus in the house. he has advice for house democrats taking control in january. >> don't focus immediately on trump. you have something with with a secretary of labor, epa, interior department, commerce department, at hud. he has brought the swamp to washington and flooded the plains and i think mueller will deal with trump >> and he's begun to turn over his cards. >> you have an entire government not on its game protecting the american people. >> and that was previous to the filing off the documents. how does that correspond with
the direction house democrats are intending to go? >> i think thats rr on par. you're not hearing many call for impeachment in recent months. i think rom is right. they want to let mueller do his thing to focus on the other elements around ptd and i think that's the approach they're going to take but republicans are going to be increasingly under pressure to say do you agree with this? it will be interesting to see which republicans are can say this is a step too far and we need to take action. >> we've said for some time it's not leaggal to lie to reporters. but you see in this filing that mueller believes that it is evidence of obstruction of justice to lie to the public.
>> it is clear that's between the line oz of what mueller's saying. with respect to cohen and manafort, that their lie thing to public. they're lie thing to public so distracted the investigators from their core mission and that interfered with their investigation and that could give rise to obstruction. ken starr said the same thing during bill clinton. so it's not clear to me that mueller will not take the same view, that all of these lies trying to divert the attention of the american people and make the job more difficult for investigators isn't part of the mosaic of what he will look at as obstruction. in the cohen documents, it says
cohen was intouch with the white house in 2017 and discussed with others his false testimony. if cohen was talking to the white house about submitting false testimony, that's a very serious felony. special counsel robert mueller says manafort lied to his investigators and the white house says this has nothing to do with the physical. next we're going to take a closer look at that claim. >> and the dow drops more than wan,000 points. >> and this was the zeen moments agoin paris. pulling down make-shift barricade and setting it on fire. police forced to use tear gas and water canons.

mon paris. the feminine fragrance. yves saint laurent and a new court filing, mueller says paul manafort lied again and again about several key points. >> and this was after he iagreed to cooperate with prosecutors. cnn politics reporter joins uz live from washington. >> that's right. the court filing we got yesterday accusing paul manafort of lying details the wealth off evidence that we've seen in c context with the ruzs. he accuses him of lying about five different issues. the document provides clues
about some of manafort's inneraction with the ruzs as well as we don't know the answer to yet. lied to trump officials. mueller says he has tebst messages documenting some of this communication. we know know who he was talking to and why and why he lied about it special counsel. he lied about his contact with a rugsz nationals they say has tied to russian military intelligence. the have been kbequestions abou cilution. and military intelligence and meddling during the campaign. manafort has denied that he actively lied to the special counsel. but what this means is that he
could face additional charges before he's sentenced for crimes he was convicted of earlier this year. >> thank you so much. >> and there's a lot to descuson the legal front with all of this. we have seen this white house and the president 2r50really tr separate himself. and now we have wourd hat manafort was encontact with the white house as recently as this year follow oing his indictment. >> i mean it's not good. you'll recall a can couple months ago or a year ago when the financial dealings came back, they said this is nothing to do with russia. this is all him and his personal dealings. this brings us a step closer to
the white house. mueller has text messages and other communications that show he was in touch with a senior administration official. they're still in touch and they're still communicating about what is happening and that does not bode well for the white house, clearly. >> we saw that list off all the lies that manafort is accused of. he's lied about contact with the white house, lies about his contact with ruzs. why is he lying and what's the end game sneer >> well, the end game is that he's going to go to priszen. that's theent game for man fat? why he's lying, seems he has a disposition to lie hoots rr drenetening. from a defend yourself and get a bed deal stand pointed none of
it makes sense. both paul manafort and michael cohen were in touch with a twes. what the nature of that contact was and what they were trying to do with the white house. was the white house trying to shape their testimony with respect to cohen as he testifieds before the hill and manafort as he cooperated in quotes with mueller and if there is evidence, a big word if, the he was present said his. his part. and that's the most legally problematic thing you will face, far more so than collusion allegations. this wds be witness fachlering.
