2:04 pm
rattled that on tuesday the democrats took the lower house of congress in the u.s. midterm elections he knows that those democrats can support them or investigation and so he's acted this quickly by putting in a man as you would occur who has already said that the investigation should be significantly restricted i expect that the immediate stuff will be that matthew will occur as acting attorney general will veto any subpoena by robert mueller to question donald trump and then supported by allies in the process donald trump and his group are going to try to say that robert mueller is illegitimate and set up for his dismissal now will that succeed two questions one is there enough resistance in congress not just from democrats but some republicans to try to check this and to how does robert moore move legally with this process when is he ready to present the evidence not only against allies of donald trump the donald trump himself that's probably going to be in the spring so like is donald trump in his

in legally you know they have to come in jim through a process i wanted to be a process and i want people to come in and we need the people you're here play that you're clipping wait you know why we need the people because we have hundreds of companies moving in we need people there hundreds of miles away that there are hundreds and hundreds of more along the way that's under debate and honestly more no way that's not an invasion honestly i think you should let me run the country you run c.n.n. and if you did it well your ratings let me ask you if i may ask one of the hoarseness present i think that's an ask one of the other folks that's a tough for me ma'am on the story that's enough the president had one of the donors that i may ask you on on the russian vest occasion are you concerned that that you may have not did i heard about anything with you may have. been because it's a hoax or you that's enough put down the mike the terror watch c.n.n. should be ashamed of itself having you working for them you are a rude terrible person you shouldn't be working for c.n.n. . so that is the video scott the battle between the president and the press is of
2:07 pm
course not what was special though about this particular situation. well part of this is personal donald trump despises any journalist who questions down and because he was so upset on tuesday over the elections he lashed out at someone he especially despises jim acosta and c.n.n. but part of it is linked to the russian bust a geisha because the tactics of trumpet his team are going to be trumped crush of escalations fake news supported by fake media so as robert miller closes in and as they become war concerned about trying to get rid of him they are going to use the cover of these attacks on the process to say this is not a legitimate investigation anyone who questions us is not legitimate so this is just the start there will be more jim acosta's who will feel the wrath of the president because it is just crunch ego now is trying to battle for survival as part of a campaign to get away from russia and to get away from robert mueller thank you so
