4:09 am
who hurled racial and homophobic slurs at him, doused him with a chemical, and tied a nasa around his neck while yelling "this is maga country." surveillance cameras showed no assault. they did show the men, however, who quickly went from persons of interest to key witnesses when they told the cops smollett had paid them to stage the attack. police superintendent eddie johnson was outraged. >> jussie smollett took advantage of the pain and anger of racism to promote his career. i'm left hanging high head and asking why. >> reporter: according to the grand jury, smollett knew there was no reasonable ground for believing that such offenses had been committed. they said he falsely claimed he was a victim of a hate crime. that one of his attackers was a white man, that he was hit in the face, that a noose was draped around his neck, and that he had fought back, a claim he repeated at a concert days later. >> i fought back. >> reporter: each of the 16

4:12 am
there. the president and the first lady got a firsthand look at the tornado damage in hard-hit lee county, alabama, friday. they met with residents who lost homes or loved ones when the deadly twister cut a 70-mile path of destruction sunday, killing 23 people and injuring dozens of others. mr. trump also signed bibles after speaking in a church in opelika. the president signed an emergency disaster declaration earlier this week authorizing federal aid for the area. on the political front, president trump friday made a new claim that his former fixer, michael cohen, had asked him for a pardon. a request he says he refused. cohen testified to congress under oath denying he has ever asked for a pardon. this amidst another staff shakeup with deputy chief of staff of communications bill shine resigning. shine is the fifth communications director to leave the administration. the president is spending the weekend at his florida resort,
4:13 am
mar-a-lago, where we find errol barnett who's traveling with the president. good morning, errol. >> reporter: hey there, good morning. look, it remains unclear why bill shine is leaving now just as president trump faces new p.r. challenges. the president is voicing opinions of his former campaign chairman, paul manafort's, jail sentence and is formally debating his former fixer michael cohen on line. >> michael cohen lied about the pardon. and it's a stone-cold lie. he's lied about a lot of things. >> reporter: on his way to visit tornado-stricken alabama, president trump lashed out against michael cohen for claiming under oath that he never sought a pardon. >> he knew all about pardons. his lawyer said they went to my lawyers and asked for pardons. i could go a step above that, but i won't do it now. >> reporter: aboard air force one, the president elaborated, writing in a tweet, cohen, quote, directly asked me for a pardon, i said no.
4:14 am
cohen responded calling the claim just another set of lies. the president hit back, seemingly quoting a fellow republican, "the only time that michael cohen told the truth is when he plead that he was guilty." >> have never asked for, nor would i accept a pardon from president trump. >> reporter: cohen's lawyer has acknowledged cohen directed his then-attorney to explore possibilities of a pardon at one point with trump lawyer rudy giuliani, as well as other lawyers advising president trump. >> i feel very badly for paul manafort. i think it's been a very, very tough time for him. >> reporter: mr. trump also weighed in on a potential pardon for his former campaign chairman, paul manafort, sentenced to 47 months in prison thursday. significantly less time than the recommended sentence for his crimes of at least 19 years band bars. >> i don't discuss it. the only one discussing it is
4:15 am
you. >> reporter: this comes as white house communications chief bill shine resigned friday. his role appearing to diminish in recent weeks. the president intended for the former fox news executive to shape more favorable coverage of the administration. now shine isn't going too far. he is heading to the president's re-election campaign where he will be a senior adviser. paul manafort could face an additional ten years in jail as part of a separate case in d.c. this upcoming week. and michael cohen begins his three-year prison sentence in may. >> thanks. "new york" magazine correspondent gabriel debenedetti joins us. let's start with bill shine felt fifth white house communications director to go out the revolving door. what's the significance of this? >> it's unclear immediately whether this is going to change anything inside the white house. the truth is while there have been five white house communications directors, six people have accepted the job,
4:16 am
there's only one all along, and that's donald trump. at the end of the day, he drives the news. and this is a white house that it's not unfair to say it thrives on chaos. so this was never really going to be a role that made a ton of sense for someone who was going to come in and try and really professionalism the operation. now we'll see what kind of role shine has in the re-election campaign. it's not really been defined yet. >> more than a dozen democrats have entered the 2020 race. we've heard from prominent dems that they're not running. what we haven't heard, who we haven't heard from is joe biden. is he going to run? >> great question. you and everyone else want to know that right now, including a lot of people around joe biden. he's been telling his advisers he's about 90, 95, 99% of the way there. there have been a lot of people around who say he has to cross the final threshold. he, of course, has gotten to this point five times before. he's run twice. not done very well. he's concerned not only about his family but about the modern political landscape. it's changed a lot.
4:17 am
he's been around for a very long time. and at the end of the day here it's a complicated thing. you know, he has changed his timeline over and over and over. i've been reporting on him for years. but for the last few weeks, i've heard he's going to make his decision by the end of 2018, by the end of february, march. now it sounds like he'll probably launch a campaign in april, but probably. >> one of the headlines this morning is the sentencing for paul manafort. 47 months, that's raised a question about the idea of sentencing and issues and disparities. but also with manafort we're not done. there is mother nature to come. >> that's right. -- there is more to come. >> that's right. he will if before a judge in washington this week. a judge who's been tougher in the past, and he could get up to ten years. there is for witness tampering and the work he did with ukraine. it's a different case. this was washington, the last was virginia. he could go behind bars for ten more years. it has spurred a national conversation in an interesting way about sentencing and the
4:18 am
possibility of sentencing reform. we'll see what happens this week. >> this coming week, the senate scheduled to vote on the president's national emergency declaration. are the republicans going to stand by the president? >> most of the republicans are. the real question is whether two, three, or four are not. right now there are four in the senate who say they're not going to stand by him. that means that he's going to have to veto the rebuke of them if everything that we expect comes to pass. right now again, there are four republican senators who are going to join democrats if nothing changes, in essentially saying that this national emergency declaration is a no-go, it's not fair, not good, it's not legal. if that comes to pass, the president is going to have to veto his own republicans' vote here. >> the president and republicans have said on the michael cohen front that he's a liar. my question is as far as the democrats are concerned, did cohen tell enough of the truth? in other words, did he connect the dots with enough proof? >> it's a good question. we don't actually know what he
4:19 am
said behind closed doors. that's one of the big questions. he does continue to testify in confidential settings that we're not seeing on camera. a lot of democrats have said he's given them a ton of information to show that the president was complicit in essentially the crimes that michael cohen is accusing him of. he question of credibil the big one now. there's a reason that not only the president but basically every republican out there is not even trying to go after necessarily what cohen has to say, but trying to prove he's not a trustworthy narrator. they're trying to say democrats can think he's connecting the dots, they can think that he's showing that donald trump committed campaign finance violations, but he's not someone that we can trust in the first place. democrats are trying to prove that's not the case. but it's tough. >> and we await the mueller report. >> yes. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> tomorrow morning on "face the nation," margaret brennan's guest will include the newest entrant into the rate for the race for presidential nomination, john hickenlooper. in other news, "the new york
4:20 am

there are few places in america where gun violence is a more intractable problem than the city of chicago where just over two months into the year, according to the most recent data from the "chicago tribune's" crime team, there have already been 50 homicides. that's a small improvement from the same time last year. but over the years, the death toll has been immense. between 1990 and 2010, just over 14,000 people were killed, and an estimated 60,000 wounded by gunfire. >> while the numbers are shocking, they don't say much about the human toll. the effect on individuals. families and neighborhoods. alex kotlowitz, author of the bestseller, "there are no school children he-- "there are no children here," is telling the

between the police and communities of color is really flawed, especially in the wake of the laquan mcdonald shooting which happened after this summer. one of the stories i tell in my book is this awful police shooting in which there was really very little accountability. and i think that somehow we've got to re-create that trust because without that, you lose a sense of fairness, a sense of justice. >> did you get a sense from the people that you spoke to how police could begin that process? >> right. >> think of -- there's a story in my book about a young man who was shot and did something remarkable, he identifies the shooter, and -- and agrees to testify, and then he faces threats over the course of the next year. then on a saturday afternoon in a gentrified park is shot in the back of the head and killed. there were all these witnesses. nobody is willing to come forward. it has nothing to do with in mythical no-snitch culture but everything to do with the sense of fear. part of that results from in

chicago police have a low closure rate. you've got a one in four chance of getting away with shooting and killing somebody. and one in ten chance of shooting somebody. without that sense of justice, i think that trust just erodes. >> you write about farrow, who -- appeared in your -- about children. you describe as initially being, seeming unaffected by witnessing a murder. >> right. >> but later, you see the truth. >> right. he takes a cab home one day from -- he was living with us, takes a cab to visit his mom. when he gets there, two men yank him out and get in the cab and shoot and kill the cab driver in an attempted robbery. farrow witnesses this. 20 years after the fact when i was working on this book, i sat down to talk with him about it. he begins -- it's like he's back in the moment. in fact, he gets out of the booth and starts crouching. and i have to yank him back in. this was clear that that incident had so gotten into his bones. >> never left him. >> he, by the way, from the book, i read it, he stayed with

5:14 am
talk show was canceled, holmes met with apatow again. this time to pitch a new series based on his life for real. how much of this show is autobiographical beyond just the premise? >> the first season i would say a large percentage happened. the second season, maybe that got cut by 15%, and then the third season got cut again by 15%. what happens is it's still true, it's just based on something that happened to judd, something that happened to one of the writers in the room, or a couple of the writers in the room. >> reporter: what sets this man parks part, and -- and -- apart, and makes you decide you're going to focus your very busy schedule on a project with him? >> i was really fascinated by his interest in comedy. i think he loves comedy as much as i do. i'm out of my mind. but also his interest in spirituality. and i felt like there's very little discussion of religion and all of our spiritual quests on television, and there seemed to be something about the combination that felt very unique. and to do it through someone who's hilarious is the best way
