tv   CNN Newsroom With Ana Cabrera  CNN  December 9, 2018 4:00pm-5:00pm PST

4:00 pm
newsroom." thanks for rolling with me. i'm ana cabrera in new york. impeachment, fraud, nixon territory. these redirect examination words swirling around the president of the united states tonight as we get a clearer look now at the investigation that the white house wants us all to believe is just a witch-hunt. >> there's nothing in the constitution that prohibits the president from being indicted. this country originated in rebellion of the english king. we did not seek to create another king. nobody, not the president or anybody else can be above the law. >> is somebody violated the law, the application of the law should be applied to them like any other citizen in this country. obviously if we were in a position of great authority like the presidency, that would be the case. i don't know if it's going to reach that point or not, we'll have to wait and see. my position will not be a political decision. it will be the fact that we are a nation of laws and no one in this country, no matter who you are, is above it. >> so what is the truth?
4:01 pm
according to federal incorporat prosecutors, that trump personally directed an illegal scheme to manipulate the election through hush money payments, and that his adviser had more contact with russia than he's ever acknowledged. sarah westwood is at the white house tonight. in a little over three weeks the new congress convenes. the big question is how are they going to handle these new revelations? >> the incoming chairman of multiple committees had already signaled their intention to investigate all kinds of areas they felt their gop colleagues had ignored from the president's tax returns to his overseas business dealings. so these latest filings could expose the president to even more legal jeopardy because prosecutors tie the president directly to this alleged campaign finance violations,
4:02 pm
linking to payments he initially denied knowledge of. jerry nadler, the top democrat on the house judiciary committee said if it's proven the president was linked to those payments, it would been an impeachable offense. but others have acknowledged the particular significance of this latest disclosure. for example, democratic senator chris murphy said the country should be worried about the direction this is heading. take a listen. >> we certainly have moved into a new phase. the president has now stepped into the same territory that ultimately led to president nixon resigning. he was an unindicted coconspiracy tore, but this investigation now starting to put the president in serious legal cross-hairs and he should be wared and the whole country should be worried. listen, nobody is rooting for the president to go down in this
4:03 pm
manner. this isn't good for democracy. but this investigation may ultimately lead to congress taking action. >> reporter: now, the president had initially touted these filings as a win for him because they don't contain any evidence linking him and his campaign to russian collusion as the white house seeks to distance the president from revelations about the conduct of his associates. >> give us the latest on the new staff position. >> reporter: the president announced yesterday chief of staff john kelly will be leaving before the end of the year, ending months of speculation whether kelly was eyeing the exits. nick ayers, the chief of staff to vice president mike pence was the front-runner for that position. but ayers and trump could not agree on a time frame for ayers accepting that position. ayers wanted to leave sometime in the spring, and president trump wanted a two-year commitment from ayers.
4:04 pm
our colleague jamie reports there was more internal resist fr -- resistances. now he will be leaving the administration entirely. we're looking at vacancies. >> do we know who the new contenders are? >> the president is considering four names to replace chief of staff john kelly, one of them may be congressman mark meadows. they speak frequently and senior white house aides were taking the temperature of trump's allies this morning about whether meadows may be a good fit for that job. ana, i'm told the president is looking to make a decision by the end of the year. >> sarah westwood at the white house tonight. thank you. i want to bring in our panel, cnn political analyst and "new york times" editor patrick healey, an attorney and former mueller colleague, kristin
4:05 pm
peters ham lynn. i want to get back to the russia probe. thank you both for being with us. you have worked with mueller. do you see him laying out some kind of road map here for us? >> in terms of -- >> where his investigation is heading with the filings we saw friday and earlier in the week with flynn? >> quite frankly, i actually thought this was the way it was going for a long time. i think he's been laying this out for those of us who are former prosecutors it looked like there was going to be violations that were going to be brought against the president. there were going to be obstruction charges potentially brought. certainly the conspiracy to fraud issues are front and center. you could even tell at the outset from the prosecutors that he chose to be part of this team that there were people that had significant, deep expertise in money laundering. >> the president likes to point out that some of them have given
4:06 pm
money to democrats. >> well, you know, bob mueller is a republican and he's leading the charge. rod rosenstein has been supervising and he's republican as well. >> the 2350i8filings we saw on directly implicate the president, and at least one of those filings, the one involving michael cohen and the campaign finance violations, and yet the president here this weekend seems to be taking a victory lap. >> yeah. he's sending a message, again, to the base that fundamentally the story line he sees on collusion with russia and obstruction of justice hasn't changed. as we know with this president, especially on twitter, he likes to make claims that are false or either don't have any backup. but it's very important to him to come out of a day on friday where you have major filings with both michael cohen and paul manafort for the president to be able to say there's no smoking
4:07 pm
gun here on anything, so i'm cleared. that really is not the case. but what is important here is that, as you pointed out, ana, the president has now been brought in and implicated directly in alleged crimes in a way that really has not happened before. and what he is being told, at least in terms of inside the white house, is that, again, yes, you're being pulled into the cohen money situation with the porn star, with the playboy model, yet it seems unlikely -- you listen to what was said on cnned to, that congress would take on an impeachment fight over money payments that were made when you were a candidate to mask your private life. i think you're seeing a real intense spotlight now on the president more. and then i think internally what he's hearing from his people is that it's not that you're off the hook, but that the
4:08 pm
information that's coming out now isn't as grave as democrats might say. >> let's dig into how congress is reacting. on one hand, you have congressman adam schiff a democrat, who's going to be chairing one of these key committees saying he's seeing potential jail time for trump. and then on the other hand you have senator rand paul, republican, saying he completely disagrees. listen. >> there's a real prospect that on the day donald trump leaves office, the justice department may indict him. >> i'm absolutely against it. we should not have special prosecutors going after one person. if we get this way and if we're going to prosecute people and put them on jail for campaign finance violations, we're going to back a banana republic where everyone is prosecuted and get
4:09 pm
thrown in jail once they leave office. >> do you see them going after trump after he's out of office on a campaign finance violation? >> i do. a lot of people say the campaign finance laws are slaps on the wrist, but they misunderstand how it works. the fec doesn't have the authority to indict, but when the doj brings an fec violation, if you look at the senator edwards situation, that's potentially 30 years' jail time. when the department of justice brings an fec violation, you can get very, very long periods of incarceration. >> interesting. as jeff flake pointed out this weekend, and you were talking about this, patrick, for the time being, it's what does congress do because the president wouldn't indicted. so far republicans have stayed very loyal to trump. jeff flake writing this. it's like the party is a frog
4:10 pm
slowly boiling in water, being conditioned to not be worried, to not think too hard about what's happening around them. patrick, with these new filings are we going to see republicans start jumping out of the pond, so to speak? >> i don't think so. i don't think yet. you're going to need more serious, high-crimes and manipulation, and real evidence of either collusion or obstruction of justice. we were talking for many months about obstruction of justice, possibility for some time. and the mueller report may still shed light on a great deal. right now the filings are so much about the people around president trump either lying or being implicated in different charges, certainly. but you're not seeing at least right now something that i think -- to kristin's point, where you're seeing the justice
4:11 pm
department being willing, a republican justice department in this case, being willing to upend conventions and say we're going to somehow consider an indictment of the president. even congress, even some democrats like jerry nadler in congress are telling cnn today, raising the idea that these offenses might be impeachable. but whether the democrats in congress want to go into the 2020 election with an impeachment case against trump, i think you're still hearing a lot of democrats say we want to decide this at the ballot box in 2020 unless you see real evidence of high crimes. >> and they have the high shadow of what happened with hillary clinton in the reverse situation. what the president continues to say this weekend, there is no collusion, clearly. have you seen anything revealed so far, at least publicly in what mueller and his team has presented that suggests otherwise? >> well, first, the president also said he knew nothing about the payments to stormy daniels,
4:12 pm
and that proved not to be true. and i think there's a lot of evidence that the president has a disconnect with the truth a lot. so i wouldn't -- his no-collusion assertions are persuasive for me. one of the things i thought was persuasive is what i saw with my own eyes in helsinki. to throw under the bus the intelligence agencies of the united states when you're standing next to a former kgb officer and saying you believe him. and when the kgb officer is asked a question by reuters, did you want him to win, and did you instruct members of your government to help him, and he said yes, i do, yes, i did. and the next day we were all gaslighted as a nation because the president ensured that that transcript was redacted of that
4:13 pm
admission. that's mens rea for me. i don't think that bob has at this point in time shown his full hand on the issue of the conspiracy to fraud. i think that there's a lot more to come and he's been getting out in dribs and drabs, but a lot of it has been redacted. >> and 300 plus pages since he's taken over this investigation. patrick, before i let you go, i want to ask you abiliout the ch of staff position. nick ayers apparently not wanting to take that job, even though he was the front-runner for it. now the name mark meadows, the house freedom caucus chair is being thrown out there. what's your reaction to that idea? >> it's interesting. what trump is going to need are two things. one is a chief of staff who's really going to tell him what he needs to do to be able to compete again in pennsylvania, michigan, and wisconsin, and essentially the states that he
4:14 pm
put together, electoral college in 2020. and then he needs a republican that can be the ambassador to the minority republican leader in the house and to mitch mcconnell in the senate. mark meadows is a member of the freedom caucus in the house, the most conservative part of the party. he isn't necessarily known as someone who was flipping let's say independents in places like pennsylvania. in reality, the hard right has sort of driven crazy people like mitch mcconnell. president trump definitely feels comfortable with meadows. that's very important in a chief of staff, but whether the political chemistry is there with some of the key figures, it's a little hard to tell right now. >> patrick, kristin, thank you both for being here. good to see you. coming up, the invisible primary comes into focus as more and more dems drop clues about 2020. it's going to be a crowded field. could some have already missed

4:20 pm
2020 bids to face off against trump. in addition, we learned this week that two dems fresh off squeaker losses in the midterms, beto o'rourke and andrew gillum made the pilgrimage. with us is scott jennings. robbie, looks like a crowded field but in terms of this current climate, which is better, to run the campaigns like they're the best to beat all the other democrats, or the best to beat trump? >> well, honestly i think those things go hand in hand. you know, i actually wrote a piece on this on cnn that the most important thing the democratic candidate needs to be able to do is build a real base of fans out there. that happens in cyber space, that happens on the ground through organizing. and i think the same kind of inspirational leadership that can mobilize people and money to
4:21 pm
build the campaign in the primary is the the same thing that's going to help them push through in the general election. our greatest challenge as a party is trying to drive our own members of the jury amidst trump. he absolutely sucks up all the oxygen. we're going to need someone to break through all this noise to explain to the american people, first of all, why trump has given them a really bad deal, why he's made their lives worse and how they can offer something better. >> let's look at the specific contenders beginning with former vice president joe biden. he said he believes he's the most qualified person in the country to be president as well as this quote, i am a gaffe machine, but my god, what a wonderful thing compared to a guy who can't tell the truth. are gaffes in the era of trump as detrimental as they once were? >> you know, i don't think it will be gaffes that beat joe biden. i think about his statement
4:22 pm
about being the most qualified. hillary clinton was probably more qualified. she got beat. in 2008 john mccain was certainly more qualified. he got beat. so it's not about qualifications right now. it's who can build a fan base and a fervent fan base, a rock-solid base that won't go anywhere. one trouble point for the democrats in their primary is in order to get those fans, you might have to say and do things that aren't going to play well in general elections. not having to go so far to the left that they're unacceptable to people in the upper midwest or the sun settle where this campaign will be fought. >> this news about o'rourke meeting with obama amid 2020 speculation, here's what the "new york times" said about him. o'rourke has emerged as the wild card of the presidential campaign and waiting for a democratic party that lacks a clear 2020 front-runner. but the fact that mr. o'rourke is even considering a run speaks
4:23 pm
to uncertainty in the democratic party. are they right? >> i'm totally uncertain as to who our nominee is going to be. but that's not unusual. i went to go work for howard dean's campaign in new hampshire in the 2004 democratic primary. when i shadow up in manchester to get to work, joe lieberman was crushing everybody in the polls. john kerry ended up winning there. we are so far out. when i started working, by the way, it was what would now be 2019. i think people are going to get into this campaign and probably do very well that we're not even talking about right now. >> that's possible. >> what matters -- it's absolutely possible. what matters right now is that we give people time to make a decision and they focus on building that base of fans, focus on how do i break through with my own message and not let trump decide what we're talking about every day. >> republicans jumped on a tweet
4:24 pm
since by kristin jill brand where she said our future is female, intersection natural ane just getting started. don jr. responded by saying my girls will be excited about this. when is it appropriate to let my boys, 9, 7, and 6 years old know there's no future for them? not sure this is a winning platform, but you be you. scott, what's your take? >> jill brand and klobuchar are two i'm watching very closely. the democrats clearly just had a lot of success with female candidates for federal office in this most recent election. it strikes me a lot of people in their party will be looking to unemployment a woman for president. those two aren't going to peak so early, so i can see them having late-coming strength where you come on later in the effort. i think beto made a lot of fans
4:25 pm
outside texas is also interesting. i find it unlikely that the democrats, given all the young energy and energy behind female candidates, wouldn't want to go with a younger female candidate in this election, particularly if it appeared that they had built the kind of platform that could compete outside of cities, outside of college campuses and compete in the upper you had midwest and the sun settlbelt. but i think gillibrand and klobuchar are two to watch. >> let's talk about a female to watch, elizabeth warren. her hometown newspaper is having a change of heart about the senator's presidential prospects. "the boston globe" which previously endorsed her said warren missed her moment in 2016 and there's reason to be skeptical of her prospective candidacy. while she's an important voice
4:26 pm
nationally, she's back divisive figure a unifying voice is what this country needs after the polarizing politics of donald trump. robbie, the paper also said candidates should take note of how carefully patrick weighed factors before ultimately deciding not to run. how does the a candidate know when they're moment has passed? >> candidates shouldn't get into run because they want to be president because i'm sure they all do or because people are telling them they should. they should get in because they have something to say. i think that editorial was totally premature. warren hasn't even decided whether she's running or not and they're already deciding for her whether she should get in. she hasn't had time to put that out there. so that was premature. but i will underscore, again, democrats need to break through. it's going to be a big field, so you got to have something to say. you got to have something that punches out. just choose ing a bunch of positions on a bunch of litmus
4:27 pm
tests, which i think the media is going to tried to do, it's going to be easy to ask do you agree with x, y, or z. but having a vision of who we are as a country, what it means to be an american, what american means today, big ideas like that are what are going to break through. >> we'll see what breaks through. there's lots of time. thank you both. >> thanks. >> thank you. coming up, our cnn exclusive. details of the chilling last words spoken by murdered journalist jamal khashoggi. stay right there. is this for real? yep. we match all the cash back new cardmembers earn at the end of their first year, automatically. whoo! i got my money! hard to contain yourself, isn't it? uh huh! let it go! whoo! get a dollar-for-dollar match at the end of your first year. only from discover.

briefed on their assessment of "washington post" journalist jamal khashoggi's killing. they were horrified and said so publicly. now a source has given cnn a briefing on a transcript after an audio recording of khashoggi's final moments. cnn's nick robertson was provided with details of the translated transcript reproduced in this report of that audio. and it correlates with the cia finding that the saudi team sent to istanbul came with the intent to kill. >> cnn can now reveal jamal khashoggi's last words. i can't breathe. i can't breathe. these previously undisclosed details of what happened that afternoon in october come from a source who's been briefed on the investigation. the source has read a full transcript of an road recording
4:33 pm
of khashoggi's horrific final moments. within moments of his fateful steps into the consulate, khashoggi recognizes someone, asks why they are there. the answer, you are coming back. according to cnn's source, the turkish transcript identifies that person as a former saudi diplomat and intelligence official working for crown prince mohammed bin salman. whom khashoggi knew. khashoggi is clearly alarmed and replies, you can't do that. people are waiting outside for me. according to the source, the conversation ends right there. the transcript indicates noises as people set upon khashoggi and how quickly khashoggi can be heard saying i can't breathe. he repeats it again. i can't breathe. i can't breathe.
4:34 pm
what happens belies initial saudi claims. his death was a grave mistake. cnn's source says it's clear from his reading of the transcript that khashoggi's murder was no botched rendition attempt, but an execution of a premeditated plan to murder the journalist. but it is what happens next that is really horrific. the transcript records many voices and noises, then says scream from jamal. again, scream. then gasping. noises are identified as s"saw" and cutti"cutting", then a voic turkish authorities identity as dr. sala muhammad, the head of, for instance, medicine at saudi arabia's interior ministry. he says if you don't like the noise, put your ear phones in or to listen music, like me.
4:35 pm
courting the source, matreb makes at least three phone calls during the murder to a number turkish officials identify as being in the saudi royal court. only he his side of the conversation can be heard, but there's no sense of panic or of an operation gone wrong. matreb tells the person in reyad, tell yours the thing is done. it's done. cnn reached out to saudi officials to get a response from those named in this report and were told saudi security officials have reviewed the transcript and tape, and nowhere in them is there any reference or indication of a call being made. a saudi source close to the saudi investigation says both matreb and tabeki deny making
4:36 pm
calls. and that it provides no smoking gun linking mohammed bin salman to the killing, it seems to echo senator lindsey graham's sentiments after hearing the cia's assessment of khashoggi's killing. there's not a smoking gun, there's a smoking saw. kni nic robertson, cnn, london. >> we shared our detailed description who was briefed by the cia, and we were told the cnn report of that transcript was consistent with the briefing the senator received. coming up, trump, tariff man and the trade war tweets that sent stocks spiraling. >> we're humans helping humans, and they need our help. >> we are giving the gift of mobility. >> they're the best the world has to offer. >> we're building something that matters a lot more than we do. >> they're heroes today and

a revaluation this weekend related to "the washington post" krirpt jamal khashoggi. "the new york times" reporting that white house senior adviser and the president's son-in-law, jared kushner, advised the saudi crown prince on how to, quote, weather the storm after khashoggi's murder. now, the reason that's significant, the prince is the same man the cia believes ordered the killing. that brings us to the presidential brief, highlighting some of the most pressing national security information the president will need when he wakes up tomorrow. joining us is national security analyst and former national security adviser sam vinograd who helped prepare the presidential daily brief for president obama. what impact does kushner's communication with the saudi crown prince have on our national security? >> ana, jared kushner should be the immediate subject of a
4:43 pm
counterintelligence investigation into why he knowingly broke the rules on foreign outreach and set himself up as an exploitable asset of the kingdom of saudi arabia. these rules exist to preventative foreign government from knowing more than their own. when jared kushner texted mohammed bin salman, for example, a saudi official has more information than the u.s. government. that's a bribery point but jared kushner also big footed the policy process i hope was under way after khashoggi's murder and signaled to mbs and other members that his strategy is probably the best way to get their desired outcome by working with kushner, who lacks experience and obviously judgment. they don't have to deal with the experienced professionals who might be weighing other options, and i really want to know what other foreign leaders has jared kushner been in touch with. it's so beneficial to these foreign leaders to engage directly with kushner. >> let's talk about the new satellite images revealing north korea is expanding a key missile
4:44 pm
base. and yet the person who's supposed to coordinate these policies, the national security said last week a second summit with kim would be productive, even though they're still not denuclearizing. >> i don't think a second summit between the united states and north korea matters anymore because kim jong-un has moved on. we are no longer his vip guests. when president trump met with kim, he toepd floodgates for other leaders to do so. the president of china is reportedly thinking of going soon. the pope has gotten an invitation. whether we show up or not won't matter. it's a busy social season in pyongyang and we aren't requiring an inventory of missile sites before the summit. so it's unclear what we would achie achieve. kim is continuing to manufacture missiles, maybe make more nukes and maybe making more friends. >> chinese president xi is
4:45 pm
signaling he may soon be visiting north korea. does that play into the u.s./chinese trade negotiations in any way? >> it definitely does because the chinese are really good at multitasking. president xi has said his goal is national rejuvenation and trade policy is one piece of that puzzle. in the sit room with president obama, we used to look at the full sum of all chinese parts. if you do that right now, china's increasingly aggressive across so many spheres. they're increasing their cyber capabilities for special military gain, at least according to our intelligence community. the pentagon says the cheinese military can degrade our own abilities. so for all those reasons, it would really on behalf behoove trump to take a look at what china is doing. >> coming up, caught on camera, this guy wanted a lot more than ice cream. what the clerk did that had this robber running. a frightening snatch and
