5:00 am
extra marital affairs. but they expect to also get into key allegations in the mueller report. and that's where things could get dicy behind the scenes. because the white house sent a letter last night arguing hope hicks was immune from having to answer questions about some of the time she spent in the white house. and just a few excerpts from that letter i want to read. he argued because of this constitutional immunity and in order to protect the prerogatives of the office of the president, the president has directed ms. hicks not to answer questions before the committee relating to her time of service as a senior advisor to the president. in a couple of questions that democratic aides will want to ask have to do with the firing of james comey, also anything that the president did to interfere with the mueller report. we expect this will all be behind closed doors, but there will be a transcript released in upcoming days. john and alyson. >> let us know when you see hope
5:01 am
hicks, the arrival there for this closed door testimony. that will be fascinating. i want to bring in andrew gillum, a cnn political commentator. david, we are awaiting for the arrival of hope hicks on capitol hill, and lauren said something very interesting. hope hicks of course spans the entire recent political career of donald trump from before he was president until after he was president. there's absolutely no executive privilege for anything that happened before donald trump was president. she will have to answer questions about that. if she tries to get out of answering questions after he was elected president or inaugurated, that's where the problem will be. >> and that's where there's a potential assertion of executive privilege even if it's legally dubious. she can assert it here and then away we go into the legal fight already well under way. this is the gatekeeper for a
5:02 am
president who knows a lot, facilitated conversations, and spoken for him on a number of occasions as well. so there's a lot of material they could cover with her. my question will be how much will it be focused on what congress is interested in at this point which is establishing whether the president obstructed justice, picking up on where the mueller report left off where there's additional threads for them to investigate. are they going to get anywhere with her on that? can i just think as a close political ally of the president's and with executive privilege hanging out there, they're going to be stymied. >> they know voters don't like to read their information. they need a different delivery system somehow so what democrats are planning to do is after they talk to hope hicks behind closed doors, though she may not be able to say much because of executive privilege, they're going to come out and talk about it at the microphones.
5:03 am
>> i think there's going to be a lot of executive privilege, referring back to her lawyers. and i think this may be a situation where democrats don't want to look too aggressive in pushing her to say something she doesn't feel comfortable saying. i think their bigger target will be don mcgahn. he's the one that spent the most time with robert mueller. democrats need to tread lightly here i think with hope hicks. >> mayor, i'm hearing a lot of so what's the point here. is that fair? >> it's important to get her on the record prior to what she knew going into the administration. that will not be covered by executive privilege. she may obviously choose to yield to her lawyers as a way of getting out of answering those questions. but the bigger thing here are democrats consistent with nancy pelosi's strategy here is sort of go slow, make the case, lay the foundation and building
5:04 am
blocks in case the democrats should choose in the congress to move down the road of an impeachment inquiry or impeachment in and of itself. so this is an important steppingstone i think of laying the foundation or building blocks that can be made down the road. >> and democrats don't want this to look like what the president is describing it as, a witch hunt. trying to go after any person associated with the president and attack them. so democrats need to follow through with what they've said they've been doing from the get-go, and that is following the facts. and they want to present a situation where ultimately they can say every single person we interviewed has been stone wall wrg that's one thing. but they need to be very, i think, smart about how they handled -- >> that's interesting. it can't be a fishing expedition because she knows everything. >> she's defended him, though. we've seen even with her testimony with bob mueller she said there were times she didn't understand the president or certain circumstances, but she
5:05 am
defended him through and through. >> there are consequences obviously for lying to congress. she does have to be honest. i'm hoping she will obviously have some responsibility to the constitution and to the process, will level with the american people. but obviously we'll have to see how this process plays out. but again i think this is consistent with the planning of the democratic party and the democratic leadership which is to take this slow and don't get ahead of the process. >> she testified to congress before, a long time ago. that is where she did admit to telling what she called white lies on behalf of the president. that was interesting then. so who knows. >> david, let's talk about what happened last night. the president officially i guess announced his re-election campaign, though it seems he's been running for office since day one. i think he's even been talking about how long he wants to stay in office, maybe even longer than the next four years. he has a little joke. so it was interesting i think to
5:06 am
hear him attempt to talk about the left wing angry mob as his backdrop, was an angy i guess right wing mob of people chanting. you know, chanting nonsense. there were taunts, they were chanting nonsense about the press and calling people names, and that was interesting optics. >> the thing i'm fascinated by by this political figure in donald trump is the president, is how he even as president has positioned himself as the aggrieved outl aggrieved outsider. he may have said let's keep america great, and i guess the implication is he's made it great again and we should keep the status quo. if you talk about the list of grievances and the ways his followers are victims or he is is victim in some way, it is constantly positioning himself as the outsider. on the one hand he's going to want to take the benefit and credit for an economy that's
5:07 am
humming for so many americans. on the other hand he's going to blame the news media, the political establishment and of course democrats. so keeping people down, for getting in the way of important progress, that's what we see here. it's confounding to watch it especially in light of his poll numbers where he's remained consistently under 50%, which is so difficult for a president to win re-election. but he's obviously broken all the models. but that's what i took away was this reliance on grievance. that's still where he's going. >> i think one of the reasons you continue to hear sort of a broken record of the things you heard from 2016 and playing the victim card here is pause he can't say look at what i've done, the wall i've built, the tariff wars i've won. look at peace with north korea, peace with iran. he can't list that. right now he could be saying as david said, look at the great economy. i can continue doing that for you for the next four years. for some reason he's choosing not to. >> well, the president is very
5:08 am
clearly terrified of what 2020 could bring for him. it's why he kicked off his campaign in florida, a state i know well. in fact at times i felt in running for governor i was running against donald trump. it's a state we've seen move closer towards the democratic side in my race, and florida is the one state that could deny this president a second term. >> last night he didn't look terrified in that huge arena. people were packed. it looked like there was a festival outside, 20,000 plus people. >> but kamala harris had 20,000 plus people at her rally in california, and as did other candidates in launching on the democratic side for president. it was almost in my experience forecast by the fact it was almost as if he was in a time warp. he spent more time talking about hillary clinton, litigating the campaign of 2016 than he did focusing on what he's going to do for the american people in his base moving into 2020. and that's largely because as
5:09 am
you pointed out, he doesn't have a good record to stand on. even interviewing people in the audience they said we still don't have the wall. >> he was talking about the economy, and had he stuck on that that might have been something that was a unifying theme. but by minute five and six he was talking about other things. you say you know a lilt something about florida, and you know something a little something about polls, too. joe biden leading the president by 9 points. you said something interesting. you said you think florida is trending democratic. well, barack obama won florida twice. president trump won florida, rick scott won in florida. you know, and also as you well know the governor ron desantis there, quinepiac showed you
5:10 am
leading. >> first of all, i do not believe florida will be anything other than a 1% state. as it has, barack obama won the state twice by one point. donald trump won the state by a point. the last three democratic gubernatorial nominees including myself, three points -- 0.4% difference in my case. so what i believe this race in my state is going to be won or lost on the ground. the fact is that keeping hispanic kids in cages is not going to play well for huge hispanic population across the state of florida. i believe we are getting organized. i'm a part of that process. we've got a pledge to register a million and reengage in florida. and in nelson's case down to $10,000 this is race again won and lost in the margins. that's why he's launching his hispanic outreach from florida in a couple of week.
5:11 am
and quite frankly that's why democrats are doubling down on the state to basically build the kind of infrastructure that's designed to deliver a win regardless of who the democratic nominee is, we want to deliver our state for the democrats. >> do you believe the polls right now? >> i definitely think the president hassen uphill battle. i would pray that no democrat gets illusioned by these polls. we've got to do the difficult work on the ground. if we do that work, we win. i don't subscribe to any of them at this point. >> thank you all. breaking news now. a u.n. special investigator has just released the findings of the first independent international inquiry into the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi inside the saudi consulate in istanbul. it draws a direct link to the saudi crown prince. she's in london with all the breaking details, what does it reveal, clarissa?
5:12 am
>> reporter: there are some very grim details in this report and the investigator is not pulling any punches. she says having gone through all the evidence, having listened to the now infamous tapes of the killing of jamal khashoggi inside the saudi consulate she's under no illusions this was a deliberate, premeditated esh cushion. she also says credible evidence that the highest levels of saudi authorities including the crown prince mohammed bin salman, were involved in this murder. the key thing is the element of premeditation. our viewers may remember the saudis tried to float this theory this was essentially an attempted rendition that had gone wrong. not so says the u.n. investigator, and it reason she says that is because she has listened to the tape, and 13 minutes before jamal khashoggi even enters the consulate the forensic doctor who is part of the 15-man saudi team is heard talking about dissecting a body. he expresses hope that it
5:13 am
dissection would be easy, according to this report. and says that he has never cut something on the ground, and then another person enters and says, asks whether the sack f h sacrificial animal has arrived, that apparently a reference to the journalist jamal khashoggi. as i said she's not pulling any punches. she says targeted sanctions should be called on saudi arabia, more investigations including the u.s. fbi she's suggesting, a criminal investigation should be open too. >> disgusting new details, clarissa. and we're waiting to see how the white house responds to this blistering new report. we do have more breaking news. arrest warrants have now been issued against four suspects after a team of international investigators announced the first criminal charges in the downing of malaysia airlines flight ma-17 over eastern ukraine. investigators say they have
5:14 am
enough evidence to say that russia provided the missile launcher to shoot down the jet. three of the suspects are russian, the fourth is ukrainian, all had military or intelligence roles. prosecutors say they will not seek extradition. 298 people died on that flight. that was five years ago. president trump threatening nasty deportations of undocumented immigrants. so we get live reaction from julian castro who's made this a center piece of his campaign as well. that's next. that led to the ride ♪ which took them to the place where they discovered that sometimes a little down time can lift you right up. ♪ flights, hotels, cars, activities, vacation rentals. expedia. everything you need to go. expedia. change has many faces.

5:19 am
country. democrats are more extreme and more depraved than when it comes to border security. the democrat agenda of open borders is morally reprehensible. >> joining us now to talk unt it is democratic presidential candidate julian castro who was the hud secretary under president obama and also the former mayor of san antonio, texas. thank you very much for being here. i want you to respond to what the president said at his rally last night. are you depraved and norally reprehensible because of your policy on immigration? >> well, i hope the folks that watch this watched the rally last night and saw that it becomes so clear every time he does this is that what this president wants on immigration is not a solution but a circus. and if you think about it this president has been a complete failure on this issue. they told us about a year ago that if we would just be cruel
5:20 am
enough as americans to separate little children from their mothers, that less families would come from central america, and instead the opposite is true. 144,000 people came last month. so let me tell you what i would do if i had been inrogerated in january 2017. we knew for years more people from coming from central america. what he should have done two years ago is that he should have immediately begun working with honduras, with el salvador, with guatemala so that people could find safety and opportunity there instead of having to come here. instead of doing what would be most effective to solve the problem, he's used this like a political pinata, trying to drum up enthusiasm from his base, and in the meantime what's morally reprehensible as americans is
5:21 am
that children have been separated from their mothers, people have been put in cages and six children have died in u.s. custody. that had not happened in more than a decade. but six children in the last year have died in u.s. custody. that's how bad this president has been on immigration. >> but, secretary, how would working with as you say honduras and guatemala and el salvador, how can a u.s. president even a president castro solve the problems on the ground in honduras and guatemala and el salvador? >> well, you think about why would a mother bring a six-month old infant on a dangerous journey of more than a 1,000 miles to get out of her circumstances unless she's desperate. it's so dangerous over there. so what can we do about that? there's no question over the years we've worked and partnered with countries to make sure there's more security and opportunity. and we can do that with those
5:22 am
countries. but? std of doing that this week this administration actually did the opposite. folks may have missed they announced they're cutting -- they're cutting off foreign aid to these northern triangle countries, to honduras, guatemala, el salvador. in other words, if you think the administration is serious about actually getting to the root cause of this challenge, you're wrong because they're doing the opposite thing. if i were president i would actually go in the other direction. we've seen -- i'll give you an example, mexico is a good example. 20 years ago most of the folks coming to this country weren't coming from central america. they were coming from mexico. but the difference between now and 20 years ago is even though mexico of course still has its challenges when it comes to security and crime, people generally can find more opportunity there today than they could 20 years ago, and so more of them are staying there than used to. that's what we need to see for central america in the years to come, and that's what i would be
5:23 am
focused on if i'm elected president. >> the president also announced this week that next week he and the i.c.e. director will begin the process of deporting he said millions of undocumented people and families here who already have deportation orders, so they're not supposed to be here, they're already adjudicated, he said they're in the millions. he's going to start deporting them next week. is that going to happen? >> i wouldn't put it past him, but at the same time how many times have we heard this president talk about something and it never happens. the latest example of that were these tariffs he was going to slap on mexico even though the analysis showed that would cost 400,000 american job. >> but don't you think that threat has got mexico's attention? because mexico has agreed to send more troops to their border and have stricter laws.
5:24 am
>> they had agreed to do that several months ago. >> but now they're really going to do it, they say. >> come on, this president does the same thing. about his threat on mass deportations next week it's the same play book. even if he doesn't do it, what he's trying to do is terrorize these families and instill fear. this is the same thing happening with this citizenship question on the u.s. census. even if that never happens it's going to chill and stop people from participating in the u.s. census. and because of that, wherever you're at in this country you're going to be harmed because your community is not going to get resources for roads and bridges and other public education, other public investments important to you and your family. so this erraticism, this, you know, racism, this using of immigration as a way to rile up his base, it has real world consequences for the viewers out
5:25 am
there and their families no matter what their politics are. and we need a president that actually wants a solution and not just a circus. >> very quickly i know that you want to change the categorization of the immigrants that show up at the border from putting them in a criminal category to civil. but how does that help? how does that stop the 144,000 people from showing up at the border who need help? how does that help solve the humanitarian crisis there? >> the first thing i'd say is this is how we used to do it from about the late 1920s to the early 2000s. this was actually treated as a civil violation not a criminal violation. this isn't something that the u.s. didn't use to do it. the reason that children are being separated from their mothers, from their families is because we turned it into a criminal matter and we're incarcerating these parents. so keeping them incarcerated and
5:26 am
then separating their children from them, i don't believe we should do that. the other way this would be helpful is actually allow us to get through the backlog of cases of asylum claims and other cases better if we invest in immigration judiciary and treat this as a civil matter so people aren't waiting in this country in limbo for years and years. so there's a better way to do this. if you're somebody out there concerned about this issue, and i can understand why someone would be concerned if you had 144,000 people coming last month to the southern border. but there's a better, more effective and more humane way to do it, and this president is not interested in that. he's just interested in using it for politics. let's get onto actually addressing the issue with a solution. >> congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez likened the situation add the border to concentration camps. should she apologize for those comments? >> well, look, i think the point she was trying to make is this
5:27 am
is serious, and this is the mistreatment of human beings. >> yes, but you know concentration camps is loaded. >> of course i understand, you know, that there's a significance to that term, but i agree with the sentiment behind what she said, which is that we can't take this as normal. this is cruelty for these children. we've had folks who study these things say these children, a lot of these people are going to be affected for their whole lifetime. so we can't write it off. and i think we should focus on what she was trying to say which is that we need to end this and end it now. >> okay, secretary julian castro, presidential candidate, thank you very much for being on "new day." >> thank you. all right, we're getting fresh word this morning as to who might be nominated as the next defense secretary. this comes as new questions arise about the vetting process to put people in his cabinet. here are even more reasons to join t-mobile. 1. do you like netflix?

this morning new questions about who was serving in the president's cabinet and how they got there. acting defense secretary patrick
5:32 am
shanahan is on the way out with army secretary mark esper set to replace him. this is all happening as the tensions are escalating with iran at the very time you need a strong secretary of defense. so what challenges does this pose at the pentagon? joining me now, lieutenant general mark hurtling, and a cnn military analyst, and rear admiral john kirby, a cnn military and diplomatic analyst. to say i'm outranked this morning is the biggest understatement of the morning. general, i do want to start with you here just on the confirmation process. and you've both been through background checks. i just don't understand how he got this far. he's already a senate confirmed deputy defense secretary. and the episodes in the family -- and i'm not assigning blame to him here -- but the episodes in the family are something that absolutely would or should have come up in an fbi background check and absolutely should have been at least
5:33 am
considered by the senate, correct, general? >> absolutely, john. and i'll tell you having filled out the forms that you're required to fill out for background checks, for financial disclosure, done that many times. i'm sure admiral kirby has to, you're concerned about making sure you get everything on those documents because you know if an fbi agent or a security investigator comes back later on and says, hey, you forgot to tell us about x, y or z, you're in trouble. and other people will tell that or they'll do a check in terms of arrest record, so, yeah, it concerned me. i was confused as to why it didn't come up, and even then if you're going for a high level position in the u.s. government, you make sure your bosses know all the dark thingsthali that occurred in your past just to give them information. >> and domestic abuse is not an abstract issue in the united
5:34 am
states. it's a fundamental primary concern right now, and it's something that should have been known going in. bigger macro issue, admiral, we now have a former acting defense secretary. we haven't had a defense secretary since general mattis left before christmas. there are serious issues around the world right now. of how much concern is this to you? >> it's deep concern to me. because our allies and adversaries when they see acting in someone's name they know someone could be temporary, and they'll be dealing with someone else a couple months later as donald trump decides to fire him or her. it also makes it hard for them to appreciate the greed in which that acting individual has the ear of the president, and the influence over the president and actually involved in the policymaking process, policies that affect them, again our allies and adversaries. it also makes it hard for institutions because the bureaucrats know any reforms or
5:35 am
changes, any change that the acting secretary wants to lead are also ephemeral, and they can wait it out. and so it's very hard for an acting individual to make any meaningful change inside an institution much less hire and recruit and retain real talented individuals. and we have not seen many pentagon posts still. and i think there's a lack because they don't want to come aboard because they don't know who the heck the next leader is going to be. >> if i could add to that, june brings brings up a very good point. there's also the normal procedures taking place. the central commander and acting central commander are both prand new. we will turn over the chairman of the joint chiefs and all of the service chiefs and the vice chairmen this summer. so all of that church within the defense department when you have
5:36 am
other signals going out to our friends and allies saying we're more worried about the tactics of things than we are about the policies and strategies associated in defense department that is huge, it's the biggest bureaucracy in the world. so all of those things contribute to this kind of churn that is concerning when things happen around the world. >> the secretary of the army mark esper will become it new acting defense secretary, which, again is a phrase you really shouldn't have in the u.s. government for very long too much to have an old acting defense secretary and new acting defense secretary, secretary esper seems to be widely respected and have bipartisan support if he were to become the eventual nominee. that aside, let me put on the screen here the number of acting senior officials and cabinet officials here. it just goes on and on and on here. and it does seem to allow for a vacuum, again, and we're watching hot spots in iran for instance.
5:37 am
and as secretary of state, you worked for both the pentagon and state department -- the secretary of state mike pompeo seems more involved than i've seen with military issues. he seem today be taking the point on the military action involved with iran now, and i'm not sure that's a normal result of the fact there's only been an acting pentagon leader. >> i think it's a result of that. clearly there was indication mr. shanahan was considered weak and maybe on his way out. i believe yesterday was sending a message to iran. it was a photo-op. it was wholly inappropriate as secretary of state. his job is diplomacy, and he's not in the chain of command. he has no accountable for military decisions one way or another. so the argument i needed to go down there to make sure we were coordinated, he could have done that easily by just pick up the phone calling shanahan or joint chiefs chairman general dunford. that was a wholly unnecessary and again all about visual
5:38 am
messaging. but i am concerned about the degree to which this administration has a cohesive policy how to deal with iran. pompeo keeps saying it's about economics and not diplomatic efforts but he's talking about military options. it seems like the president is on one side, hey, let's cut a deal on nukes and pompeo and bolten on the other side saying regime change. and the iranians understand this. >> admiral kirby, general hertling, always a pleasure to have you with us. a news photographer find himself feet away from an armed gunman. >> i was just praying he couldn't see me. if he would have saw me, he would have shot me, no doubt. >> okay, we have the story behind this chilling photo. -guys, i want you to meet someone.

us they had to embalm my brother so he could be sent back to the states. we later learned that that was not accurate, there's other ways to transport a body from the states -- to the states from the dominican republic. so we'd like to try to -- if we don't feel like we're getting the answers we need from them, we'd like to get some kind of testing done on american soil by american doctors to help us understand what could have been the cause of my brother's death. >> understood. of course you just want answers and need help with the investigation. thank you for being here. we're really sorry about the loss of joseph. please keep us posted. okay, we'll be right back. our heart goes out to that family. hope hicks, the president's former aide just arrived on capitol hill. she will testify behind closed doors to the house judiciary committee. there is a conflict already over claims of executive privilege. we'll bring you the very latest developments as we get them in next. erience with usaa has been excellent. they really appreciate the military family and it really shows.
