7:08 am
processes to examine the facts and come to a conclusion. >> reporter: spicer was asked if the president was the target of a counterintelligence investigation, the kind that might justify a wiretap warrant? >> i think that's what we need to find out. there is obviously a lot of concern. >> reporter: near the end of the briefing, spicer was handed a piece of paper. he then tried to clarify his remarks. i want to be really clear on one point which is there is no reason that we should -- that we have to think that the president is the target of any investigation whatsoever. >> reporter: there is one thing the white house is certain about. it wants the republican-led congress to investigate. south carolina republican senator lindsey graham and rhode island democratic senator sheldon whitehouse wrote comey on wednesday asking for copies of court orders related to wiretaps of president trump, the trump campaign. >> if there was a warrant, i need to understand why one was issued.

to be sensitive cia data. an investigation is under way, and among the pressing questions, whether someone working for the cia handed the data to the anti-secrecy group and why wikileaks published the information on tuesday. intelligence sources pointed to other wikileaks disclosures over the last eight months and note they usually appear to be timed to coincide with certain events. in a statement, the cia said the disclosures were designed to damage the intelligence community's ability to protect america against terrorists and that they jeopardize u.s. personnel and operations. the wikileaks disclosures breach in the intelligence community. so far investigators have not ruled out the possible involvement of a state actor in some way. earlier this year u.s. intelligence agencies assessed with high confidence that wikileaks conspired with the russian government to release damaging democratic party e-mails. anthony? >> jeff pegues, thanks. hawaii is the first state to

7:34 am
arrest in st. louis last week, the nypd's intelligence division actually supplied a key lead in. because there is a character that we had seen in an earlier case some time ago. so what you have is you have the person behind the main number of these and the copycats. the person behind the main number is first of all your typical bomb scareer, this person is a typical coward. they hide behind the shadows. they work from a distance and their goal is to instill fear. and doing that behind the shadows shows that they're not willing to come out and confront whatever the issue is. they want people to jump through their hoops. this guy is using technology. he's using a voice changer that makes him sound like a fe maim. he is using voip technology on the phone. using phone spoofing. sometimes to make it appear that not only is the call not coming from the number he is using, but
7:35 am
coming from a number within the location that he's threatening. so we have an offender with some technical prowess here. >> what do you had advise jewish centers to do if they get a call like this? >> anthony, we have been in conversation in new york. what we talked about is a measure of response, remember our offender characteristics. this person actually wants to instill fear. but it also wants to cause disruption. so the measured response is rather than evaluating the whole building of the first call, which fits all of the elements of the pattern, do a perimeter search with the police, do an superior search with the police and/or explosive detection k-9. if nothing is found, don't give the payoff to the threat. >> that is quit obviously a threat. >> john, how do you tell the difference between someone who legitimately wants to do harm and someone who is pulling a prank to create chaos?
7:36 am
>> well, most of the time the person who is legitimately trying to do harm doesn't calm ahead to diminish the amount of harm that he or she is doing, most of the time. but that's a -- that's more a guideline than it is a rule. so you have to hasn't him those things seriously. on the other hand, when you have a defined pattern with the defined characteristics and a large number of these fake calls, then you get into territory where you know exactly what is going on in all likelihood and while you need to respond to it by checking it out, you may not need to use the full-on response that is going to deliver the type of disruption that keeps this person going. >> but you are confident, they're going to catch this guy? >> everything that this individual does, every technological piece that they add in to avoid detection, is going to leave a different kind of fingerprint that when this person is identified and the fbi is running this case, because it's a national threat that are going to help identify this
7:37 am
person. >> there is coordination across state lines on this? >> so what have you is a case that started in the tampa field of the fbi. they're the office of origin, as it spreads throughout the country, leads all come into that central investigation, the headquarters, hate crimes division within the civil rights division, who is running the big picture of this and police departments like new york citys are working their own investigations and coordinating those with the fbi. so there is a lot of people working on this day and night. >> that's good. that's very good to hear. you are the deputy commissioner of nypd. while we have you here we want to ask you about one other thing. protecting donald trump has cost $25 million. is the nypd, i know, want the federal government to reimburse nypd for those costs? >> we certainly do. a letter recently went from the police commission tore all the members of the new york delegation. you know, norah, what this is, is we have an obligation to protect not just the president
7:38 am
of the united states while he's in new york. but also all the residents of trump tower, both when he is here and not here. this is basically an unfunded federal mandate. you know, it's not like the federal government -- >> how much does it cost per year, hundreds of millions? >> if you talk about the 25 million that was before the election, how much it will cost every year is going to depend largely on how often he comes here. so far he hasn't been here as much as people thought he would. but put that aside, trump tower where his family lives, it's his known residence and now because of his name becomes a symbolic target when he's not there. >> that means not just the residents of trump tower, but everything around it becomes a mart of that protection package. >> that all counts the city shouldn't have to pay for that from its taxpayers for walk. it's not like the u.s. government said, just do this, if you guys can fit it in. they said, we need this protection. we're running up a big bill for

8:03 am
now that you have about every major influential group against this, the doctors, hospitals, nurses, aarp, are you confident this can get through congress before april 7th when congress goes on recess? >> yes, very confident. remember, this is one of three phases to repeal and replace obamacare. this is the first phase going through. you have to think about why are we currently where we are and why are we repealing it. remember what obamacare did? three essential things. gave greater krog of health care to the federal government. it was the exchanges. then it was the expansion of medicaid. when you look at the exchanges today, one-third of the county in america there's one provider. humana pulled out, 16 counties in tennessee have no provider. medicaid is on a path of destruction. social security going to cost $1 trillion within the next ten years for one year, and that's the equivalent of how much we spend on discretionary spending
8:04 am
for all of government. you can't let it go forward. it's going to collapse upon itself. we have to solve the problem. this is the first phase, and it's going to reason silluation, which makes it with the senate rules for difficult, but the second phase is with tom price and health and human service secretary, and third phase moves at the same time, the bills that take 60 volts, and overall, you'll have a very good bill that solves the problem that lowers premium price and greater quality to health care. >> congressman, the hospital association that nora mentioned are warning this will result in a substantial reduction in the number of americans who are covered. do you disagree with that? >> yes, i disagree with that. if you want to sit back and say the argument that the federal government is going to mandate everyone gets covered, look what's taken place today. if people can't get care, obamacare created 23 coops, providing $23 billion. in a short time, 18 collapsed.
8:05 am
if you have 16 counties in tennessee that don't even provide any coverage at all, how can that provide coverage to them? then you look at what the providers are actually saying. they are calling it a death spiral when it comes to obamacare. we can't sit back and see people go without health care. we have a system to lower the price and bring greater quality. >> congressman, this is happening remarkably fast. your colleague in the senate, tom cotton, tweeted guidance to you this morning saying, house healthcare bill can't pass without major changes. to my friends in the house, pause, start over, get it right, don't get it fast. will you heed that advice? >> we have heeded the advice. we have spent the last six years studying the obamacare failures of it. we have sat back and watched this thing get collapsed. what we are doing is keeping the promise of what we said we'd do. repeal obamacare and replace it. unfortunately, we have to do it in three phase, and-under-par the rules of the senate, it does not allow us to give a full
8:06 am
replacement and one simple vote, so that's the reason why we're going through three phases. we're going through regular order, as you watch through committee. through energy and commerce. through ways and means, and then it goes next week to budget then come to the floor. this is the way legislation is produced in america. this is the way, one, we keep the promise to lower the price of health care. >> i know that president trump is taking an active role in lobbying some of the more conservative members of the caucus who oppose this, particularly the tax credit, who they call an additional entitlement, bringing some of them to bullying tonight at the white house. is that going to work? >> president trump supports the bill because he understands it lowers price. more importantly, tax credit is a conservative idea. look at what heritage said in 2007, tax credit is the way to provide greater health care in the process. i believe when people sit and read the bill and understand this is phase one in a process, you're going to find much more support as we go through.
